Easy Button?

Hey everyone! Hope the week is off to a great start. I had some sweet cravings yesterday and some coconut butter that expired on or before Sept 2010, however it still tastes good to me so I don't think it has "gone bad". I remember seeing Katie make "Coconut Butter Melties" & I had a sweet tooth after dinner. I popped my Artisana Coconut Butter and Cocoa Bliss into the microwave to warm them up for about 20 seconds and took a spoon and pushed the butter's into the molds, popped them into the freezer for 30-60 minutes and delicious candies are born!!!

These were really fun and EASY to make, I only ate 3... haha.

Next up -- organization.

I am trying to be more organized at home & work.

I recently organzied at work and threw away recycled a bunch of old paperwork, flyers, pamplets that were all old news in the mortgage business. Feels good to get rid of the clutter. It seems a bit easier to focus now at work, which is a good thing :)

For a couple weeks I have been trying to locate a cheaper but just as pretty and useful makeup organizer just like the one seen on the Kardashian shows.

I want to be able to keep all my makeup neatly organized while being able to see it and know exactly where everything is... the only problem this organizer which is acrylic is really expensive.

Prices range from $290-$340!!! Crazy!!!!

Check out this website for a cheaper version but still rather expensive ---> starletsandharlets

I have been searching on Ebay to find something similar...

Thus far everything is that over $100 that I really like. I can't seem to justify spending that amount... so I am turning to you.. any tips for organization for makeup? I have a pretty vanity that I want things to look nice and organized and not all just thrown into baskets like they are now. Too bad this wasn't that easy.

Thanks for your help!!!

(I had sushi for the first time since 2010 today and I did fabulous with vegetable rolls)!!

Have a great day!



  1. Is Sushi not Vegan!?
    I love that make-up organizer too but can't believe it's that much money!! I don't have that much make-up so I just throw mine in a bag!

  2. It's only vegan when you don't order fish with it.. haha I don't think the spicy mayo is vegan... most lilely not lol and I love that stuff!!! I found the cube on Ebay for $100 ... very tempting....
