The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,300 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

I Love ❤ these year end reports! Thank you word press monkeys! You’re awesome!!

and the reviews are mixed this year. 😉

Personally I like it! I’ve heard it’s considered an Earth tone, and I love the warmth of it. With just a touch of red to spice it up.

As seen in clothes, shoes and accessories. While I don’t see me wearing this in all year round, I can see accent pieces.

The fun however starts in the makeup! well IMO! 😀

And so far, Sephora seems to be the only one that appears to have the idea of getting this color out and about.

I did find this image:

And it all appears to be Maybelline! 😉 One of my goto choices for less expensive make up.

Want to add some Marsala in your home, a few other images I’ve found. I think if you have a neutral palette already, then adding in some accent pillows, throws, what have you would be beautiful.

I like these next set of photos:

I love this accent wall! 😀

LOL and I do have the color of the year and use it on a daily basis.

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb-okay, I think it looks like Marsala. 😉

unnamedThe photo does not do it justice. The color really is darker. 😉

New Year’s resolutions

2 Comments

Do you have your’s yet?

A New Year’s resolution is a secular tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year’s Day.

And where did these come from? one of my fave sources to jump off from wikipedia

Make a list and check it twice. 😉

My resolution in 2000 was to stop making resolutions, and dang if I haven’t done well with that one. No more failure, no more stress. However… I did start blogging and writing more. I was also in school and acquiring one new thing or more a day. For me, I was already improving myself. And now… yeah, I don’t like the stress. see the giggle next! 😀

I do however have another resolution that I’ve also kept on doing since 2000. 😉

Tick Tock Day
December 29, 2014 in the World
There are only two days left until the end of the year; have you achieved everything you set out to do, upheld your New Year’s resolutions and made a difference? Tick Tock Day puts the pressure on you to cram in some last-minute work before the end of the year to achieve your goals!
Where is Tick Tock Day?
Worldwide
National Pepper Pot Day
December 29, 2014 in the USA
Today is Pepper Pot Day! Pepper pot is a thick spicy soup first created on December 29, 1777. During the Revolutionary War, the Continental Army experienced an exceptionally harsh winter in Valley Forge. The soldiers were low on food because the farmers in the area sold all their supplies to the British Army for cash rather than the weak currency that the Continental soldiers could offer.
Christopher Ludwick, the baker general of the Continental Army, gathered whatever food he could find to feed the frail soldiers. The chef was able to find scraps of tripe, meat, and some peppercorn. He mixed the ingredients together with some other seasonings and created the hot spicy soup we now know as pepper pot. It became known as “the soup that won the war.”
To celebrate this historic dish, try making your own pepper pot soup today! It’s the perfect way to warm up on a chilly December day.
