Nancy’s April Favorites and The Ones I’m Buying for Myself

Each month I share my favorites from the month before, the products/ things I love and that add significant value to my quality of life. For this month's favorites, I thought it would be fun to share my daughter-in-law, Nancy's favorites. I ask Nancy for a list and after reading about some of her favorites, I've ordered quite a few of them for myself. Several of Nancy's friends have been singing the … [Read more...]




March Favorites, New Summer Clothes & How I’m Storing My Shoes & Handbags

I'm late in sharing March favorites. There are really so many I could share since I've purchased a number of things over the past month while setting up a mini workspace and shopping for spring clothes online during the time I've been visiting with my son and daughter-in-law. I've narrowed it down to my absolute favorites and I hope you find these favorites helpful. A few summers back, I put together a … [Read more...]




My February Favorites

Yay, for March! Once March arrives, I feel like spring can't be too far behind. I know many of you still have weeks of cold weather left (as we do here in Georgia) so you may find this post especially helpful since I'm sharing a lot of my fave winter pieces that have made winter a lot more tolerable, if not enjoyable.

January Favorites & My Absolute Favorite Cozy, Warm Shoes for Indoors

Definitely one of my most favorite purchases during the month of January was a new pair of Ugg boots. I love wearing Uggs inside, especially when I'm working at my desk because they keep my feet sooo warm. And if your feet are warm, that's half the battle to staying warm all over, at least it is for me. I had a pair of pink Uggs I purchased a year or so ago, but shortly after I purchased them, they began … [Read more...]

We love looking for the black cat on every page and it has the cutest surprise ending. (Book is available here: A Dark, Dark … [Read more...]

It's time to share a few of my favorites from the month of October. Toiletry Travel Bag Last time I was in Ohio visiting family, I ordered this travel toiletry bag and immediately switched all my stuff into it during that trip.

My September Favorites, From Practical to Decorative to Whimsical

Just a quick post today to share a few of my favorites that I enjoyed during the month of September. Atomic Habits I shared this book in a previous post but I wanted to share it again because it's one of the few books I've read over the years that I can't get out of my mind. I purchased it on Audible and listened to it during a long road trip a while back, but I think about it almost weekly, sometimes … [Read more...]




My August Favorites & My First Unboxing at “Under Moonlight and Magnolias”

Thanks so much for all the kind comments left on my post about creating a new Instagram page for sharing some of my fave fashions, handbags, perfume, etc...

The new … [Read more...]




July Favorites, Recent Purchases and What’s Currently in My Shopping Cart

As usual, I'm a bit behind in sharing my July Favorites and I have quite a few! Before I left for my long trek north to Ohio, I downloaded several books from Audible to my phone. I've listened to a lot of books similar to this one and rarely buy new ones since they all tend to say the same thing. The reviews convinced me that this one was worth a listen and didn't just rehash the same old stuff. After … [Read more...]

May Favorites Including a Fun, Addictive Game the Whole Family Will Love!

I've been weeding the gardens (still have so much more to do!) and this trash bag holder has been invaluable! It's almost like having a second person helping you, holding the bag open while you toss stuff in. I've been impressed with how well it works, even when I'm tossing in heavier stuff the bag has never comes loose. I use it so much, I leave it out full time in my garage for easy access. I think … [Read more...]

March Favorites & a Genius Life Hack When You’ve Forgotten Your Readers

I'm late as usual in sharing my favorites for this past month. Spending a week out of town with family and working on taxes (ugh) has me a bit behind. My most favorite item for the month of March has to be this car handbag holder that I shared a few weeks back.
