Music Moment Monday

salut salon

When I first saw their video of "Tricky Classical Quartet"  I actually cried.  When I see uplifting music that makes my spirit soar, my emotions do that to me.  That's what the foursome Salut Salon from Hamburg, Germany did for me.  They are performing in the U.S. right now.

Check out this awesome video of their performance.  You'll want to share it for sure.

This is a new favorite for my skin.  It's been a great change, since my skin is, um, aging.  I know, all of our skin is aging.  But, I just tipped myself closer to that 'hill' known as 'over-the-hill' and my lines around the eyes and blotches on my cheeks are showing more than I like.
Paula's choice has reduced all of that over the last 30 days I've been trying it.  It will stay in my medicine cabinet.

* I am a bzzzagent and have received this product to sample and try based on my own experience.

Music Moment Monday

After a very spiritual weekend of listening to a living prophet and apostles, the music is appropriate for today.  Plus I love both these songs.  AND, Iguazu Falls in Brazil is a place I've been too.  If you've been to Niagara Falls times is by 3 or 4 and you have the immensity of Iguazu Falls.  Plus it's out in nowhere.  

Have a great day!

Project for April

This is a copy cat pillow of an Anthropologie pillow that costs $78.  I had everything on hand, so it cost me zilch.  Nice huh?
Back in January I had some goals.  Trying hard to keep them up. How are you doing on your goals?  I'd love to see what you are up to.

This pillow wasn't very hard.  In fact, it was kind of like baking- when you throw in a little of this and that.

I love the hot pink.  Below you can see all 5 pillows I made to recreate a master haven  noteworthy of Pinterest, with a little bit 'o me in it.  Creativity is coming back y'all. The best part, I maybe spent $5 total, most of this stuff I had on hand.

Music Moment Monday

Ok, please don't judge me because of this week's Music Moment.  Read to the end because I do have a point.

Pierce got a haircut this week.  It was pointed out to me that MY hair is getting too long and maybe I should trim it.  After a little thought (and hours of going through old pictures of when my hair was shorter, a lot shorter) I dawned on my I should go really short, maybe even pixie short.

Gasp! It might be too drastic a change for some, but I've done it before, without tears.

Please vote on what you think would look best for me.
1) The mussed up look

2) Sassy yet conservative

3)  Short and business like

#3 has two pictures, but they are rather similar.  In fact, I think #1 is just a rocked up version of Mandy in #3.

Please vote in the comments to help me decide.  Thank you indeed as you know it's hard to make decisions in the hair department.

Tuesday Music Video

Do you have incredible singing abilities?  Then please do what this young lady did and made an amazing You Tube video.  It totally makes our day at Chez Moss to watch people put themselves out there with crazy talents. I mean, I pride myself with keeping up with musical trends, but Hipster, what is that?

If you like unusual talents, this lady can even do sound 'alikes' of what different languages sound like.  Not bad if you ask me!

Monday Music Moment

here is my last band child.  it's his first year of band so we can look forward to many years of band concerts.  but the first concert is always special.

These are great memories!  Playing an instrument is such a legacy for life.  What instrument did you play during your school years?  

I also played the violin and wish I had stuck with it.
