Coffee & Cupcakes ~ Vanity Crack & Spice Edition

Coffee – the life blood of this Diva. I likely drink far more than I should but I wouldn’t consider facing the day without it!

Cupcakes – small portions of something delicious, CAKE! Sugar, fat, calories…YUM!

My brain is powered by the coffee as I write and the cupcakes in this case are small servings of a variety of things on my mind. Cute, I know ūüėČ

While we’re back to Defcon 5, it¬† was a frightening time around this place this morning…the tea bags were¬† gone! I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!¬† How the devil is one to brew a nice pot of mint iced tea when there are NO tea bags in the entire Diva Den?¬† Seriously this should never be¬† allowed to happen, ever.¬† Reality is we’re probably Defcon 3, as the tea bags purchased were mistakenly decaf, but we’re okay with that, at least we have the iced tea. Deep breath¬† in….exhale slowly…..

I love WordPress, I really do.¬† But when I started my¬† Chronicles of an Avon Lady blog, they wouldn’t let me use¬† links to my Avon page, as the primary purpose of that blog is to¬† promote business and share¬† my adventures.¬† I get that.¬† So it is now relocated.¬†¬† Vanity crack = makeup/cosmetics.¬† We gals that wear the stuff and are into it, new¬† blush or mascara is like crack…hence Vanity Crack is¬† the name.¬† You can access it¬† from the Lipstick Diva¬† icon on my sidebar.¬† The one with all the lipsticks.

Mt. Washmore has been all but conquered today.¬† I’ve been very busy.¬†¬† Kids to care¬† for, and laundry.¬† Oh and took on a side project/job working on some ad copy for a friend.¬† We will see how that works out.¬† I’m great at marketing me, my pages, my Avon…not sure how I will do with the other but sure giving it my all.

I enjoy broadening my blogging horizons, so in addition to writing about my life, thoughts, etc, I participate in several blog memes.¬† AKA: Hops, bounces,¬† link-ups.¬† Hosted by one or more blog pages at once, they range in themes, and it can be a fun way to find other writers to creep on.¬† If you are like me you enjoy finding new memes so when I find one I like, I share it on my meme/hop page.¬† Today I want to point you over to Cinful Cinnamon’s page.¬† She has a no rules or catches link-up on Sundays, The¬† Tiki Hut, and she has a new one she just launched, the Monday “Me” Hop.¬† She posts writing prompts on Monday, then you write and link up on Thursday.¬† Spread the¬† word, more spice to add to your blog week!

It would seem my sleep cycle is back sync, I’ve actually slept the past two nights.¬† Still need to get to bed earlier but at¬† least when I do go I am SLEEPING!¬† For this I am grateful.

I have several blogs with a bit more substance and depth to them in the works, just really needed to formulate them in my head and figure out how to approach them.  But they are coming soon.  Stay tuned.

Pass the cupcakes, please…


  1. I’m excited about Cinnamon’s new Monday Me Hop. I’ve already got my written and I can’t wait to post it and to see which questions everybody else picks to write about. See you all on Thursday!

  2. That’s funny. I’ve slept pretty well the last two nights also… but like yourself, I need to get to sleep earlier!
