Time Out for some online shopping!

Summertime can mean more time inside for us in Florida! I managed to get in 5 hikes in the month of June which was pretty remarkable considering how hot it’s been. But I got out early and just accepted the fact that I would sweat! lol

I had the BEST experience buying my favorite makeup online directly from the manufacturer. They had a good sale, offered a free gift, free shipping and I was ‘in need’! I get their sale updates in my emails.

This is the only makeup I’ve worn for the past several years.



It goes on great and keeps my face dry and protected from the sun! I use a lighter shade (applied with a small brush)  under my eyes  and medium beige for the rest of my face.


They sent some new foundation samples to try as a little gift. And don’t you love the packaging? It even came in a box (instead of a padded envelope as I had expected). I opened it and felt happy…like I was opening a present.


Well done bareMinerals! Thank you! Follow the link HERE!


And we can’t have a post on online shopping without going to Etsy!

I LOVE the shop Foresees. Jewelry crafted from antique silver plated flatware.


I bought a silver bracelet awhile back and put the La Rose 1938 Spoon Ring in my favs!


(2 rings in this photo)

One day I decided to ‘treat’ myself and I ordered it! She is a special lady and even sent me a gift which I will treasure.


(0ne resting on top of the other)

She packs the jewelry in little tins and always includes a nice note.


(now you can SEE the 2 rings and my bracelet!)

I put my new jewelry in the rose soap dish on my dresser.


Isn’t it pretty on display?

Visit Foresees HERE!

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays.

Have you bought anything special online lately?

Do I need one too? lol

Enjoy your day! Island with a palm tree

I love those rings..I remember when they were popular when I was in nursing school. I will check out her shop.

I love your new jewerlery.. I bought two new silver rings from amazon and love them. the last thing I ordered was jakes Designer Diner so I don't think you want one of those... I wore fake bare minerals for years, could not afford these and Walmart has similar. for some reason I stopped and went to something else. I like the sample thing, send it on please

I hear so many good things about this make up brand, I have super super bad allergies and sensitivities to any scent and have a challenge finding a product I can use, they did package it special too didn't they!

I LOVE LOVE that bracelet, oh my gosh it is beautiful! Her jewelry is lovely, I'm going to check her Etsy out now,

I love Bare Minerals but haven't bought any in a long time. Maybe I need to get back to using it again. The rings and bracelet are so pretty. I love this kind of jewelry!! I'll check out her Etsy store. I've not bought much lately but did add a Flamingo to my flock. I guess I need to blog and share some of my new finds soon. Hugs!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Hey Sis, just had to let you know I just ordered a spoon ring. Fell in love with it! Thanks for the share!

I love the rings and braclet and that type jewelry. I dont wear make-up, never have . I havent ordered anything except a new coffee maker online in ages, but I do most of my shopping there!

I remember spoon rings from years ago....they are timeless and just gorgeous! It's wonderful to try make-up that works for us isn't it? When, I find it...I stick with it for a long time! Thank you for sharing your treasures today!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Oh Linda! I know you'll love it! Let me know when you get it! Hugs!

The bracelet and rings are SO pretty! the last thing I purchased online was a set of very fine tip markers for my journal, at a really remarkably reasonable price. I love having pens and colored pencils to play with. Have a wonderful Wednesday, Diane!

Debby Ray said...

I used to have a spoon ring and bracelet years ago. Yours are so lovely!

Gina said...

Dear Diane, I have returned! I am your newest follower too. xx

Love those rings. So pretty!

Ann Thompson said...

I gave up on makeup years ago. I just hate bothering with it. Love the rings and the bracelet

podso said...

The rings and bracelet are beautiful! You make a good salesperson!

Terri D said...

I will visit foresees and check out her jewelry! I used bare minerals for awhile and then found Physicians Formula which was less expensive and worked for me just as well as bare minerals. My sister still uses bare mins though. Now, I am not wearing makeup at all and it feels wonderful!

Pam said...

I love jewerly and I love those. Nice. Back in the 70s spoons were a great thing to make jewerly out of. That is so neat. My makeup has changed so much over the years. I tend to get tired of stuff and then I have to try new stuff.

BeachGypsy said...

That's my make-up! ha ha LOL--haven't worn anything else in years now. It works and I love it. I use the powder formula. I also have the Warmth and the Mineral Veil finish powder,and lots of other stuff by them... but I don't wear all that everyday. Their make-up Primer is the BEST, I do use that every day, works great! You and I both have a love of the sweet little old fashioned dishes, especially to put on dressers and to hold jewelry. I like your rings and bracelet....pretty!

Sandy said...

I have been thinking about that makeup for awhile. I will have to give it a try I have read good things about it.
I love your rings and the bracelet, but I love your dresser even more. It is funny...I took off the dresser scarf the other day and wrote about it. I lived with it off for two days and couldn't take it. It is back on, so now, I have to post that I put it back:) I see I am not the only one who uses them:)

Online shopping is the only way for me...and to have it delivered to your door, as I sip my tea, its sll good!!! Well except for our little small town shops. You just never know what unique finds await there! Love the jewelry...

eileeninmd said...

Hello, online shopping is great. I have hard time finding makeup that does not effect my allergies. Your rings and bracelet are pretty. Enjoy your day!

Debbie said...

oh i do remember spoon jewelry. when i was a young girl, i use to order spoons, so i would get mail - i still have them!!!

Carla from The River said...

Beautiful .. I have a spoon ring as well. My grandma gave it to me.

I did a little shopping on line too, Vermont Country Store is a favorite of mine.

Danice G said...

I do remember spoon rings, and even owned one. Yours are so pretty. Bare Minerals seems like a great makeup. I ought to try it myself.

Terra said...

Your spoon rings are very pretty and look lovely in the dish where you keep them.

Angie said...

That jewelry really suits your style. And glad you have makeup that you like and that works for your skin type - I find it gets harder as we get older to do exactly that!!! Enjoy your weekend!

Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

Love your new ring and bracelet. And they look great in your pretty soap dish on your dresser.

Glad you got some hikes in in spite of the heat. You are brave to tackle the heat. I tend to do my walking later in the evening when it's cooler out.

Wishing you a beautiful day,

Tom said...

..I just got in from working in the yard, it's just too darn hot for me.

Your new jewellery looks good!

We have very hot weather here in the UK at the moment …
I'm really wishing for rain!

All the best Jan

Jeanie said...

I think it's very important to treat ourselves. I just bought a new carry-all bag online and I'll be writing about it soon!
