O' Christmas Tree

Oh hi.

I've put my Christmas tree up, the train is running, and my nutcrakers are cracking nuts already. (kind of)

Don't you just want to sing to it? *o' Christmas tree, how lovely are your branches*

My train is so realistic I have nightmares about it.

The boys in my life, Nutcracker & Truman the Tiger.

Somehow I conviced myself I can take artsy shots. *shakes head in shame*

There it is. My lovely tree.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Love, Mary ♥

Decorating For Christmas {Part One}

Hello ♥

I've unearthed my Chistmas decorations for my room this past week, and put them all up.

It didn't take too long {which I love}and my room looks so lovely now!

Since my house isn't decorated yet, I'll put up a part two, but for now, here's what my room turned out like...

My mini tree, which I'm very proud of. It may be small and plucky, but it's got character!

My window, which I hung garland on. Then, I strung ornaments with clear thread, and tied them onto my windowsill. It took some time, but it look great! {sorry for the lighting - it's been gloomy outside today}

I've got all my favorite winter scents set out. All my winter-y hand sanitizers are spread amoung my house at the moment, I'm such a clean freak!

My santa and a Christmas cookie scented candle adorn my dresser. {my little weiner dog jewelry holder also snuck in there}

I randomly found this candy cane bucket in my basement, and decided to put it to good use.

That completes my Christmas room tour!

Thank you for reading, I really do appreciate it ^.^

Love, Mary

A Day For Peppermint Tea


In the midst of being home alone, (all day) I decided it was time to start liking tea.

I don't even know why it came upon me, maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's all the British YouTubers I'm watching.

But, I pulled out my spanking new box of peppermint tea to give it a go.

And let me tell you, it was delicious.

I was so captivated by the tea, I dedicated a whole blog post to it.

Now that's love.

I even lit my favorite fall candle for the occasion; Leaves by Bath & Body Works.

I hope you liked this random little post.

What's YOUR favorite kind of tea? Comment it below!

Love, Mary

Face Of The Day - Natural Makeup

Hello! I'm back today with a face of the day.

Basically, I'm telling you what I put on my face  ^.^

As you can tell, my makeup is pretty natural here.

I started off with just giving my face a good scrub with my Boots facial cleanser.

Then I followed it up with my Boots toner, and I let my face dry.

For primer, I just use Neutrogena shine-free, nothing special :)

My concealer is Rimmel Match Perfection concealer + highlighter.

Then I powdered my face with Rimmel Stay Matte powder.

I actually use my Baby Lips in 'Cherry Me' for blush. If I put a tiny dab on and blend it nicely, it looks very natural.

My mascara is Maybelline's Big Eyes. I just got it and it works perfectly!!

Then I finished off my look with Bare Mineral's lip gloss in Moxie.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed it!

Love, Mary
