OH, HOW PINTERESTING!!! {Link Up w/ The Vintage Apple}

This week I decided to mix it up and take a break from “The Good Life” Link up because I’ve been pinning a ton!  I stumbled upon this blog {the vintage apple} while I was looking for some new link-ups to try and love the idea of sharing our pins and following some awesome new people on pinterest.

Here are a few of my favorite pins from the past week!

Cooking – I love warm & gooey food especially in the fall!

My Favorite Post ~ “The Good Life” Link-Up!

I didn’t realize until too late that we didn’t have a link up last week so I’m sharing my post from last week…for this week!  Have a great day & thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck!


Welcome to another day in the good life!  Since my blog is still pretty new I pulled a more recent post and a couple older ones from before the relaunching of my blog this spring! Hope you like what you find!

Favorite Post On Organization (Semi-Organized Idea! Upcycling Candle Jars!)

I attempt being organized – but I’m not Martha Stewart! I just tend to like things “in their place” wherever that may be!  I started accumulating this stock pile of candle jars but couldn’t decide what to do with them so I cleaned them out and waited for my a-ah! moment.  One night I decided I was tired of stuff strung out all over my desk – so I started with putting binder clips in one jar from Bath & Body Works (BBW), and then my paperclips fit perfectly in a mini-candle jar that was also from BBW.  It has since grown into helping me organize my bathroom closet and medicine cabinet!  Click the link above to read the full post.

Favorite Posts – Reviews – ps.. I’m a bzzagent!

It’s probably no secret by now that I LOVE makeup!  I am also a bzzagent (see last paragraph if you want to become one) which means companies send me products to try; I just use them and share my thoughts with friends, family, or anyone willing to listen or read my blog!


One of my most favorites was:  Covergirl Blast Flipsticks Review  (Click link to read full review!)  These were fun and great conversation starters when I’d wear them but since the review early this year – I’ve never worn Minx (I’m way to pale for that!) and I’ve given Stunner to a friend who can rock a bright red/orange lip a lot better than me. I did keep Vixen and randomly use it!

One other review that I had a lot of fun putting together was: BATTLE of the RAZORS! (Click link to read full review!)


I was sent the Schick Hydro Razor and had my holy grail Gillette Venus Razor so I put them head to head for a true test.  If you are looking for a new razor – I like them both but lean more towards Schick because to me it lasts longer and I get a better shave but if you want to read all the details click the link above!

As far as being a bzzagent goes – I’ve gotten to try out everything from cosmetics to cat food for my kitty!  Its pretty simple if you are interested go to http://www.bzzagent.com and sign up.  I’ve had some pretty cool products given to me like a Phillips epilator that was a $100 value but those types of scenarios are pretty few and far between.   Usually its smaller scale products but it’s still fun and you get either samples or coupons to share with others and sometimes you get both.

Thanks for stopping by Gracious Luck!  Have a wonderful day!
