Visit Me at My New Blog!

Hello everyone! As you have noticed, I haven't been blogging lately; that's because I have been focused on getting a new blog designed and ready for visitors. If you have been a regular reader of mine, you might have noticed that I'm interested in event planning. I have made the step to FINALLY get "serious" about opening my own business and I wanted my blog to reflect that. So my new blog will be at A Classy Occasion!

You'll still see a lot of the same things you saw here; but a lot more of it; including more about my business venture, projects, and events. It's REALLY important to me that my business reflects my personality; so A Classy Occasion is like an extension of Just Another Daydream.

The final look and feel of my new home (blog) is not finished yet. But I think you'll still like it over there. I hope you have enjoyed visiting me here, and I hope you'll enjoy visiting me more at my new place. See you there!

Beat The Heat

Here in the state of Georgia, the temperatures have been record breaking; the highest temperature being 110 degrees. THAT is REALLY HOT! As soon as you walk outside, it hits you straight in the face; even riding in the car, with the air conditioner at full blast, is hot. So for this week's Pinterest Me Monday is all about trying to beat the heat.

Jet Set With Birchbox

I'm FINALLY subscribed to Birchbox, YAY! I had requested to sign up a few months ago, but was put on a waiting list. Birchbox is a monthly beauty box subscription, delivered to your door, filled with sample size beauty products to try. It's a great way to find new products on the market, without having to fork over huge dollar amounts and then end up not liking.

This month, June, the theme for Birchbox is "Jet Set", all the things that are perfect to pack for a get a way or vacation.

Package Contents:
  • Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids: They feature prints with sequins, jewelry, patterns, and models-These are so ME!
  • Ye-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: This is a Japanese product which help with dry skin, chapped lips, and even sunburns. It has a thick consistency. I actually used some for my sunburn and it help!!
  • Stainiac lip stain: I have already used this product a few times and it really does add a stain to your lips and actually stays for a good amount of time!
  • Melvita Rose Floral Water: This product is so light and airy smelling; I like it!
  • Eyeko liquid liner: I was excited to see this in my package, but when I went to use it, nothing came out, it was dried out or something. Sad.
  • John Varvatos cologne: This smells REALLY good; I wouldn't mind my man wearing it! :)

*What are your favorite products from your June Birchbox; have you tried any yet?

Take Off Your Shoes and Stay Awhile

I found the above quote on Louise Joy's blog, Inspire Magazine. It made me think about the visitors who visit my blog on any given day; how I want them to feel as they visit, and what I want them to take away as they leave.

As you click on my blog, I hope you get excited; like you're getting ready to visit a friend at her home! I'm always here and you're always welcome to come, take off your shoes, and sit in a comfy chair, chat, and stay awhile; there's no rush to leave. It's quiet here, relaxing, and I hope you feel at home. There's no need to dress up; you can come in your pjs. I hope you enjoy our time together and as you visit, we may even become great friends! As you leave, I hope you feel inspired, refreshed, uplifted and encouraged. And, I hope that whenever I visit you; I will feel the same way too. I may even have some fresh, right out of the oven, chocolate chip cookies waiting for us to devour!

Favorite Song of The Moment

My new favorite song of the moment comes from Carly Rae Jepson; titled "Call Me Maybe". It's a very catchy song; which, hopefully, makes any girl want to sing along. This is Carly's first single, which has risen in popularity in many countries. I believe we'll see more great music coming from her!

*Listen to the song below and tell me what you think!
