Image: Woman shopping for big feet shoes to try on at store. Because I wear a size 9, I find myself purchasing a size 10, and it fits my feet perfectly.  When it comes to stylish and cute clothing that is a problem within itself, I notice the prettier the shoe, the smaller or narrow the sizes. If I find a well made beautiful shoe that fits my feet I have to buy them off the rack right then and there.

Oh, good morning, beautiful people, and Happy Valentines Day. There are so many things going on right now, and I do not know where to start. 

I do know today is Thursday, and most of us should be at work right about now. So, spending a whole day with your loved one may not be possible because the majority of the world has to hit that 9 to 5 button. 
I also know my household is split down the middle. It's ok because I have learned over the years how to bring in a bit of tradition that will not require time away from work or school.

Today on the blog, I will be sharing my excellent double-decker bacon stack with a twist.

Hello, my name is Tangie, and I am a recovering hoarder. I've shared this story so many times, but it's true. I have a problem tossing out things even if I know it needs to go poof in the wind. You will not believe I purchased new makeup recently, but I have not tossed out the old things that the new stuff came to replace. 
It is excruciating for me to throw my stuff away, but I am making a much-needed sacrifice. Three days ago, I gathered all the items that I need to toss out, and I am working on building a better makeup kit.

I Will Never Try This Again At Home: Bleaching Eyebrow Fail

What is the craziest beauty thing you've tried to do yourself?

I am one of those women who thinks she can do it all. You know that woman who says she can cook any and everything, clean the house and fly a 345 jet across the world and back. Yeah that's me, and I am not going to toot my horn, but beep beep. Ok, maybe I am a bit dramatic, but I can do two out of the three things listed above.
Nonetheless, its no secret I am not a stark raving blonde girl although my pictures show otherwise. Don't worry its just a little shade lighter than the natural brown head I really am. Unfortunately, with my hair being one color I wanted my eyebrows to be that same tone as well.

With so much going on in life right now it is impossible for most people to wake up joyful every day. I decided to look up the word, and its true meaning blew me away. A lot of the times when I am not feeling happy or joyous, its because I am pondering on something that I can not control.
