If We Were Having Tea (Life Update)


If We Were Having Tea, I would tell you that I'm getting ready for my "No Spend" month. I'm really determined and looking forward to saving money and probably putting it into my Christmas Fund. Yes, I started saving for Christmas. Dave Ramsey is awesome! I'm still listening to his show in the afternoons, he keeps me motivated.

If We Were Having Tea, I would tell you that Caleb is growing and learning every day. My favorite thing he said this week was "I'm frustrated, and my back hurts." As he stomped off to his room, and was "frustrated" while Skyping his grandfather. He's changing classroom's this week, and I'm hoping it goes well. Caleb get's really attached to teachers and people, so I'm thinking this will be hard for him. His cousin is following behind probably tomorrow, and I think he will be better once they are together again.


If We Were Having Tea, I would tell you that I'm reading "Money Talks" by Gail Vaz-Oxlade. I'm liking it, but I'm not loving it like I enjoyed Dave Ramsey's "Total Money Makeover."

If We Were Having Tea, I would tell you that I'm testing out to new Kobo Aura one. I'll have a review up in a few days. So far, I'm enjoying it and I like the bigger screen.

If We Were Having Tea, I would tell you that I bought some new David's Tea fall teas, and I'm so happy that fall is around the corner. I'm ready for sweaters, and tea, and cozy blankets in the evening. Fall is my favorite season, winter....not so much.

Morphe 12S and 12NB Palettes



Confession: I'm an eyeshadow junkie. I love neutral palettes, and I love palettes that you can pick up and know that they will work for you every, single, time...

I purchased the 12NB palette first. I wanted to try Morphe products and thought this would be a good place to start. It's a great palette for travel, and neutral. This quickly become one of the palettes always on my vanity. It's a great companion palette, and a great everyday palette. The mattes are great, the shimmers are nice but not metallic. Looking at this palette online, I thought the orange would be more "orange" but it's more of a brownish/orange color.


I purchased the 12S palette, I was really happy that I decided to order it. These shades are metallic, and amazing! These are great all over the lid shades for me.

Kobo Aura One




I'm so excited that Kobo has launched a new ereader. I've been using Kobo Readers for about 5 or more years. I've had the Kobo Touch, Kobo Glo, Kobo Vox, kobo Mini, Kobo Aura and the Kobo H20. It's safe to say that I really do enjoy Kobo's ereaders. All of my purchased books are through Kobo. I'm excited to test this one out. If you're looking for a new ereader, check this one out!
