My sister sent me a sweet little package last week and in it were these beautiful Elisabeth Ashlie earrings! AND THEY ARE NAMED KATE!
Other than the temperatures cooling down, I love fall because that means it’s time for another murder mystery party with my friends! This will be the 3rd year I’m throwing one, and with each one I try harder and harder to make it really fun and as “realistic” as possible. This year I chose a “jazz age” theme, and the event is at a speakeasy overflowing with bootleggers and flapper dresses. Also, the club it takes place in is called The Cats Meow, so that just about sold me right there. Anyway, Ken at playingwithmurder.com KINDLY offered a discount code for any reader of 25% off using “smallthingsblog” when you buy a game! The two past murder mystery parties have been from Playing with Murder and I have to say they are both very involved and interesting, but also absolutely doable to any skill level or experience. Try it this year! And let me know which one you do!
How cute is this DIY litter box cover?
Cute tabletop planters!
Are you a beauty blogger? One of the perks is that brands will send you new releases of products, but sometimes that leads to 1. duplicates of products you may already own or 2. receiving something that isn’t your color or for your skin type. On average, I receive about 2-3 packages a week so I have a laundry basket full of items that I knew I’d never use or that wouldn’t work with my coloring or skin type. I learned you can donate unused cosmetics or toiletries to a battered women’s shelter, and made a drop off this week. I just wanted to share that in case you are ever in a position where you don’t know what to do with unused products like that!
