Hello everyone! I hope you all have had a wonderful GOLDEN week like I have! I have been a busy lady but that’s alright because I have tons of energy thanks to exercising and yoga. I wanted to share a little bit about what made my week so golden. I love to bake and I have been working on cookie and pastry recipes for years because I am planning to open up a coffee shop. Its been a dream of mine for some time and I figured since I am almost close to accomplishing my dream why not test out more of my recipes just to make sure I still have the perfect ones. Well needless to say they are still a hit! and even though I worked on tweeking old recipes and perfecting new ones. I somehow found the time to make a brief video of one of my favorite things to bake. And since this months color is gold I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share with you all. So feel free to use it, share it or make it your own. I know my grandmother would be proud to see me remembering one of her recipes. If she were here I would call her up just to say, “ see granny Callie I was paying attention!” What were some of your golden moments this week? Please feel free to leave a comment or if you have a favorite recipe you would love to share please by all means share!LOL! Have a good weekend everyone!!! ENJOY!!!

ola! ola! everyone! I just love that song by Jill Scott LIVING MY LIFE LIKE IT’S GOLDEN. These days it only seems like the perfect song that I love to hear. I know that it has been a week since I posted but I have been busy rediscovering myself and just enjoying life with my family, and that is always top priority for me. I loves my family!!! LOL! I have chosen the new color for the month of April and because of the sunny and beautiful days we have been having on the southern east coast, I have decided that the color will be gold! I also have encountered a few things that made me feel as golden as the color gold that I must share! So if you have any questions about any of my golden items posted feel free to shoot me an email or better yet here is the real challenge……Please leave a comment! LOL!
As I was looking in my big totes of shoes that I am happy to say have downsized from 11 to 2! yay me! I came across these “golden lovelies” that I did not even remember having! They are “Timothy Hitsmans shimmery snakeskins” and they are very comfortable because the heel is not that high and it is wider so when worn the weight is distributed evenly which is a plus for a voluptuous woman such as myself. These are vintage and these are no longer made so score for me! woohoo!
I am an Etsy.com fan and I am also a fan of gold eye shadow or any gold makeup because I like the “Dewy” look on my skin. The only problem is that I can’t wear a lot of the golden makeup products especially the eye shadows that are out there because I also have very sensitive skin. So as I was doing my daily search on etsy.com I ran across Pink Blossom Cosmetics . As I began to read about the products this is what made me feel warm and golden :Pink Blossom Cosmetics minerals are multi-purpose, pigmented, and vibrant. The Minerals are hand blended in small batches to give you the finest product. You can use them dry or foiled for an intense look. For best results use a primer. Why PBC’s minerals? All our mineral makeup is formulated without harmful ingredients such as bismuth oxychloride or talc which are known to cause allergy/sensitivity problems for some individuals. Also there are no fragrances, oils, dyes, or neon pigments in our mineral line.We only use FDA approved cosmetics. Minerals will not clog pores, are water resistant and does not support bacterial growth. Our products are all natural because they are made with minerals…. I love it already and I can’t wait to try them out! I will try to post pictures as soon as I get them! GOLDEN!!! My kids would love to make fun of my use of words,as they think I have too much energy to be a parent! And the use of slang is coming from me is out dated and just plain weird to them so WHATEVER!! Momma is excited and still young! So once again Golden I am just loving it!!! LOL
These necklaces are so special to my heart because they mean so much and were given to me at a time when money was scarce for my husband and I. I remember when I saw these and I said I liked them but I did not know my husband would actually sacrifice and get them for me. I remember him staying up until 9am on Christmas day trying to get those slits of paper to fit into the heart locket. He was so determined to make them fit just right before he gave them to me. The blue words say: “Trust me” and the red words are from the bible and says: Mark 11:22-23. So special and no amount of gold can replace the value these hold in my heart.
This lovely little golden box is so elegant and pretty! I found it at one of many antique stores that my hubby and I love to shop at! I love little treasure like this because they all have a story to tell…one of them being what is the name of the song that plays when its open??
And the final moment I have been waiting to share is the new tablet my beautiful mom sent me this week! I know it’s not gold but it made me feel like I was golden and special and it did relieve the home sick feeling I was feeling because I do miss my mom very much and I can’t wait for her to come and visit in July! That is going to be the best “duas semanas visita” ever! I love you mamae!
I believe that good feelings are contagious and I hope you have some things that have made or continue to make your life's moments golden as these have for me. If you can’t think of any, just take a few moments and think about something that made you all warm and golden on the outside…..just try it for yourself and you will see, it really is a wonderful feeling!
“All that is gold does not glitter,not all those who wander are lost;The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,A light from the shadows shall spring;Renewed shall be the blade that was broken,the crownless again shall be king.”
-J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
