Eye Make-up - House on Winchester

How to Apply Eye Make-up and What Products I Use

I’m assuming the title of this blog post confused you.   My friends over on Instagram asked me to show them how I apply my eye make-up.  I know, I know… you guys may be thinking, “Listen, old lady, you know nothing about applying eye make-up so stop acting like you’re a cosmetologist.”   And lots of you are probably saying, “How the hell do they know what her eye make-up looks like.  I’ve never even seen her.”   And some of you may be saying, “I really don’t give a shit about eye make-up.  This is dumb.”

The Whole 30 – The Completion

Here I am writing about The Whole 30 – The Completion.  Can you believe it?  😄  Do you think we made it?  I’m currently typing so I for sure didn’t perish over the last 30 days.  Some of the questions I’ve received over the last month will finally be answered:  How did you do?  Was it hard to follow?   What will you take away from the Whole 30?  Would you do it again?  Did you lose any weight?   Did either of you commit homicide?  🔪  Well, I’m here for the last check-in of the Whole 30.   😁   Read why we picked the Whole 30 plan as a detox from junk food, update 1, update 2, and update 3 if you haven’t already.

Five on Friday and This week in Review - House on Winchester

Five on Friday and This Week in Review #37

Guess what time it is, boys and girls.  It’s time for another Five on Friday and This Week in Review post.  Do these weeks fly by?  I can’t figure out how the weeks fly by, but the evenings go so slow…especially when you are following the Whole 30.  There is no wine, no cheese, no sugar.  Basically all of the delicious things one could catch a buzz on are gone.  😉

Deb and I take turns every Friday sharing five facts about ourselves.  I started this five on friday gig way back when and have just kept it going.  There is a special tab dedicated to this series at the top of the blog if you want to play catch up.  We will follow with this week in review.  I’m up this week.
