About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

Spring 2011 Cosmetics....

I  know, spring is still several months off, but already we are seeing the gorgeous colors of spring for cosmetics and nail colors everywhere.  They are beautiful and some very unique.  Just the advertising and photography for some of these products will make you want to see what's in for spring 2011.  I've added just a small fraction of what is coming for spring, and had to include, though it was from last season, the Paco Rabanne  perfume - Lady Million, the fragrance is unreal, so soft  and "fabulous".  If you haven't tried it, you should.  Just purchased it last weekend, and have received so many compliments on it. Since some items are "limited edition",  I know I will be purchasing the MAC Jeanius eye shadows as soon as they are available in stores because my daughter's birthday is in March and I know she will love them, look like denim/jeans belt loops...too cute!!!

Hawaiian Tropic New Shimmer Effect Line in 2011

The Hawaiian Tropic brand is gearing up for summer 2011 with the development of its new Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreen and After Sun Lotion. The new line is set to launch in 2011.
The new Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect line is an example of the many changes the iconic brand is introducing through its re-branding efforts announced earlier this year. Launching innovative, new products with a focus on beauty and “indulgent sun protection” are among the major changes for the brand, along with a new upscale look and feel across its entire product line.
The Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect Lotion Sunscreen, available in SPF 20 and 40, adds a hint of shimmer to enhance and highlight skin tone. The sunscreen lotion and After Sun lotion both contain mica minerals to add a natural, subtle sheen, giving off a light glisten to the skin. The line features such ingredients as exotic island botanicals, fragrance, sun-activated antioxidants and tropical moisturizers.


  1. Love the Channel nail colors!


  2. Kat, I do as well...I think I will leave the blue colors, though pretty, to those a "little" younger than I, like my daughter.


  3. Thanks for sharing, its pretty cool. This year I'm looking forward to take a break and enjoy nature as I go for vacation, well maybe after I find some Texas Ranches. Anyway I really like your blog and i really appreciate the excellent quality content you are posting here.
