PRETTY PLEASE: Mod Podge Make Up Container

Green Tea Travel Toner by homeworkHappy Friday everyone. Yesterday I shared my homemade Green Tea Toner and today I want to show you how I made this cute travel container for the toner. I started with an empty loose powder container. I save them because they’re so perfect for holding small items and great for travel. Use them for your earrings and rings, medicine, or even a small amount of hair product.

PRETTY PLEASE: Homemade Green Tea Travel Toner

I’ve always had very oily skin which is a curse and a blessing. The natural oils do seem to help ward off wrinkles but I’m forever blotting my skin. For years I stopped using facial toner but as my skin ages, I find myself using it again. It seems to help combat the oiliness without drying my skin too much.

EXTRA CREDIT: Coastal Table Setting

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Faultless/Bon Ami Company    for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s always fun putting together a themed table setting. The icing on the cake is a crisp white linen napkin. When you’re going to all the much trouble to make your table extra special, you want your napkins to look their best.

The Inspiration Board: Spotlight 213 & Inspiring Summer Sherbert Colors

Hello friends! If you’re here in the U.S., I hope you had a fantastic Fourth of July weekend. The holiday weekend was also the end of my weeklong staycation so it’s back to work (at my day job) for me. I got a lot done during my week off including having family and friends over on the Fourth. I never did make it to the chaise lounge with a tall cool drink and a magazine during the week. But, oh well, it was still nice.

A huge thank you to all of you that shared projects on The Inspiration Board last week. The party had been dwindling but was back on an upswing last week. Hooray! For those who haven’t had a chance to pop over lately, here’s what I’ve shared recently.

DRESS CODE: What I Wore {Business Travel Clothes for 50+}

What I Wore Business Travel 50+Today I’m sharing a really different post with you. I love fashion and accessories but I rarely post pictures of myself or share things that I wear. I recently was away for a week-long business trip for my day job as a senior marketing manager and documented my outfits. I work remotely from my home office and was traveling to the corporate office for the first time. I planned (shopped) for this trip for a long time because it was a packed schedule with meetings, dinners and more meetings.

As you can see from my post title, I’m in the 50+ age group (eeeep how did that happen?) so I don’t want to dress too young but I also don’t want to dress matronly. So here are the outfits I wore and a few tips that I learned for my next trip in a few months.

ACCESSORIES: DIY Shell Magnifying Make Up Mirror

DIY Shell Magnifying Make Up Mirror via homework (6)For a long time now, I’ve relied on a magnifying mirror in my bathroom to apply my make up. Funny how the regular mirror seems so far away the older I get. In my bathroom, I have a nice swing arm magnifying mirror but I also have a variety of handheld versions. I found this small 4 inch mirror in one of my make up bags and decided to give it a little facelift.

EXTRA CREDIT: Groupon Coupons–a new way to save

I have to confess, I’m slightly addicted to online shopping. Clothes, shoes, household items… you name it and I love to buy it online. Nothing makes me happier than finding a good sale at one of my favorite stores and it’s an added bonus when I have a coupon code for even more savings
