Planted Garden

This year I decided to plant more veggies & fruit! My only problem was since we are moving in a few months, I couldn't plant anything in the ground - they all had to be planted in pots so I can take them with me. SO, I found veggies that grow well in pots, and got right to it!

Here is a list of what I have, so far:    :)

*Lettuce: Romaine, 2 kinds
*Lettuce: (I forget this one)
*Green Beans

What I learned about gardening this batch so far: 

*Lettuce only needs morning sunlight & shade for the rest of the day.
*Strawberry plants are suppose to be easy to grow & don't require that funny looking pot to grow. A 12" pot is best.
*Lettuce grows excellent in pots!
*My new tomato plant is growing faster than last years (almost time to turn it "upside down")!
*You can grow different sorts of veggies/herbs/lettuce in the same pot. You can even plant them with flowers.
*Not all pots have holes on the bottom for drainage. Why, I'm really not sure since I'm pretty sure whatever you plant (food or flower) NEEDS drainage. Therefore, I had to use some extra manuel labor and drill holes in the bottom of yes, every pot.

Make your eyes POP!

EyeLighter by CARGO~
This product comes in three different colors;
    * White:  this color is the universal brightener, but use it sparingly.  The white can be very bright, and is best used a night.
    * Gold:  this is absolutely lovely on olive, or darker skinned toned women.
    * Pink: perfect for fair to medium skin. 

And just for fun...
Ombre lips!

Phone Prints

Anyone out there ever PRINT pictures from your phone? I don't think I have ever printed pictures I've taken with my phone...I save them to my computer instead :)  Here's a cute [kawaii] idea for printing those pictures!

FYI: If you follow my blog & have noticed my lack of posts this month, I apologize! We are in the midst of packing/moving/building, so my mind is preoccupied & a little scattered with all that. I've kept most of my craft stuff out, but so much of my "stuff" has been packed that I've been a little uninspired to be creative. SO, until we get into the new house (roughly 2-3 months), any posts I make will be contributing to other sites I find & love, Makeup & link-ups to other blogs.
