Hello Bookworms

It is time for the first 'Photo Find" on this blog. A few days ago I posted a photo from Debby Ryan's Instagram. Here is the picture a little larger than the original below for those who may not have viewed the last post.
Here are the objects I was able to find

2. MAC lipstick, though I'm not sure the exact color
3. Great Lash Clear Mascara
4. Bath and Body Works Istanbul Candle- I have one in my room and it smells incredible
5. Revlon Nail art- these appear to be the old colors and are no longer available 
6. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner- pictured in color glamrock
7. Urban Decay shadow- not sure what shade, though from the picture it appears to be a purple shade, it appears to be Asphyxia   
8. It's from Youngblood cosmetics, and it looks to be their lunar powder, which Debby has mentioned that she loves using, in past interviews. It appears to be in either sunset or dusk, which are the darker of the three available colors.
9. Citre Shine Shine Mist- found here on overstock 
10.Real Techniques Bold Metals brush - 101 triangle foundation brush 
11. Bath and Body Works- Velvet Sugar body mist
13. B-12, can be found at any local drugstore, Walmart, Target etc. 
14. Peter Pan Collar- not sure the exact brand but check out Etsy for some cool collars  
15.  The sunglasses seem to be the Twiggy Sunglasses in white from Wildfox Couture 
The only object I could not find is what appears to be the sunglasses case, I know there is a similar one at H&M, but I believe it is in stores only

I hope everyone enjoyed this! If there is anything you believed I miss labeled, or you liked this  please let me know by emailing me at or leaving a comment. Thank You for reading!

Lots of Love, Catherine

Hello Bookworms, I am feeling good and want to post a few more things today to make up for the lack of posts this past few weeks. I feel like I'm on a roll. So this post will be weekly wisdoms, but I've decided to include quotes that have stuck out to me over the course of a week. Hope you like the additions!

1. It's not always the 'doing something' that is hard, its the getting started that can be hard. Just one step forward is one step closer to the goal, once you start, the only thing stopping you is, well, you.

2. Try not to overthink, it will drive you crazy and can create situations that probably don;t even exist, you'll make mountains out of mole hills.

3. "Fill your capacity to care"

4. "Nothing is permanent, not even our troubles," Charlie Chaplin

5. Never take the people you see everyday for granted

Let me know what quotes stood out to you this week at

Lots of Love,

Good Afternoon Bookworms,

I thought I would let you know all about this new weekly posting I would like to do. I'm sure it's not just me who loves to open Instagram and scroll through their feed and fall in love with a breathtaking landscape, or two best friends enjoying a weekend at the shore, or a wonderful assortment of beauty products that just happen to 'fall' in a picturesque way.  It is the last one that I find myself more drawn to than the others, though breathtaking scenery as made me compile a list of places to visit.

I have always loved to take screen shots of the pictures I like and then try to find the products later. I know that there are other people who turn to the comments to see if anyone knows that products posted in the picture, so I decided I would do just that, and post them here to share with you guys.

It will be at least once and week and it's almost like you can shop the picture. I will also post the original picture and the products I manage to find on my polyvore account, which allows its users to create sets with picture that will send you to places that you can buy the pictures. I will have the link down below.

The first picture I will shop for you all is by the lovely Debby Ryan, known for her affinity for hair dye and her Disney turned rocker switch into the music scene. She is a part of a three piece band called The Never Ending. Having always been obsessed with her instagram pictures, I am very excited to have this as the first picture. Here is a look at the picture I will be 'shopping'

Lots of Love,

Hello bookworms! I have a few updates for you and thought I would let you know what has been going on in my 10 days vacation from here.

For the video update, I was able to film but for some reason, editing didn't go was well as planned so I will have to work on learning iMovie better in order to film some upcoming videos for you guys. That being said, there will be videos, I am planning on getting a monthly favorites and an empties video filmed and hopefully uploaded.

But until then, I have a few wisdoms to share with you

1. You only have one chance to say certain things, so choose your words carefully

2. You can be afraid, but that does not make you a coward

3. The butterflies in your stomach feeling will never be something I think you will ever get used to

4. Waking up to a message is a guaranteed way to start your day with a smile

Hope everyone is enjoying their week.

I have a new weekly posting I want to do and would like to know if anyone would like it. I will make a separate post about it so it gets the attention it deserves. Stay tuned.

Lots of Love,


Want to talk to me? e email me at with any comments, questions or suggestions you may have. I would love to talk to all of the wonderful people who come and read this blog.

Video update!

So the haul video is filmed (yay) however, for some reason, when I uploaded the footage into iMovie, it cuts out after the first 12 seconds, I don't know if it need time to buffer and load, but for now, I can't edit. I have never used iMovie before, I have only sued Final Cut Pro and that was at school.

So until I get this sorted out, the video is on hold, BUT I will attempt to film a favorites video that doesn't need to be edited (I'm feeling ambitious) so I can just upload to iMovie and export to youtube. I'll keep you all updated. For those of you that have stuck with me, THANK YOU!!!!! I wish I could give you all a huge hug and personally say thank you.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday, you made it!

Lots of Love,


P.S. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great and much appreciated

Good morning bookworms!

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend, and enjoyed your 4th of July celebrations. I have a few wisdoms to share with you and a little bit of news as well.

Lets start with the news first, I know I said I would film and get a video up but the footage didn't come out to my liking so I never posted, BUT I found a better camera I can use (yay!) and will attempt to re-film the videos I promised and also attempt to film a June favorites. Hopefully if I can find the motivation I will film today and edit, and upload tomorrow.

Now that the news bit is over, how about some Weekly Wisdoms,

1. It's nice to capture the moment with pictures, but don't forget to experience the moment, and not just through a camera screen

2. Sometimes all you need is sand,sun, beach, music and your best friend

3. Some people just know when you need to hear from them, like they are you own guardian angel

4. Time heals wounds, so you must trust time to run its course and just be a little patient

5. It isn't always what you say that can upset somebody, but how you say it

6. Regular is not a flavor, so when I ask what flavor you want, don't get annoyed when I ask again and list the flavors we have for the second time

Hope everyone is enjoying their week, and for those of you that are just waiting for the weekend, just one more day! Talk to you all soon.

Lots of Love,

Good Morning Bookworms!

I know it's been awhile since I have posted anything, but I guess summer, sun and heat got to my head and I forgot about this wonderful little blog for a little bit. But fear not, I'm back and ready to post.

I know I posted about a video a little while ago, but the iPad footage didn't come out as great as I had hoped so maybe filming for now should just be put on hold until I can invest in a decent camera. That being said, I may try and do a blog post on the empties, highlighting just a few things I believe are worthy of mention, and will do the same for the haul. Then hopefully tomorrow, I will have a June favorites out and ready for you all to enjoy before I head off to work.

So for now, here are a few wisdoms from the past few days,

1. Always try to be the bigger person, even when someone doesn't deserve your kindness or sympathy

2. You think you have people all figured out, and then they surprise you

3. Life can be very complicated, surround yourself with people that make everything the complicated bearable

4. Sometimes, you just have to fight through the pain, knowing that the end will be rewarding, despite the journey that it took to get there

5. Sometimes, all you need is a hug

That is everything for today. Enjoy the rest of your week. Hopefully it is sunny and warm where you are, so go soak up some vitamin d ( after you put on some spf) and remember to stay hydrated!

Lots of Love,
