We are blessed in Detroit to have several beautiful spiritual gathering places beyond parishes. One of my favorites is the Solanus Casey Center, located on Mt. Elliot near Vernor Hwy. Originally St. Bonaventure parish, the site has now expanded to host a visitor center with an exhibit on the Venerable Solanus Casey, a gift shop, meeting space and more. One of my favorite things about the center is that they offer just-about-perpetual confession. Monday-Saturday on the hour from 10-4, except 1 when they gather for prayer and on holy days. With parishes offering embarrassingly little opportunity for confession overall, this little corner of my world is a gem!
Visit their website to learn more about Venerable Solanus - you won't be sorry!
I told you last week I'd be singing the praises of Capri leggings, and I aim not to disappoint! I am loving them! Full length leggings always make me self conscious of my thighs, but Capri leggings split up the visual on the leg to the point that the hips and thighs don't get as much focus. I can dig that. Now, I've seen some handsomely priced pairs, but No Nonsense offers a pair for under $15 - another little factoid I can dig! Here's my little caveat - in my estimation of life and fashion as it should be, leggings, Capri or not, are not pant substitutes. Please, this is an appropriate CYA scenario if ye catch me drift.
NYC brand makeup. I know, it's the cheap stuff. I have to admit that's part of it's charm. I can experiment with color and bolder looks without committing a full paycheck to it. I also have a really hard time finding a foundation that matches my skin tone, doesn't feel too oily and is reasonably priced - NYC does the trick there too! Plus they have fun, inexpensive quick dry nailpolish. All winners in my book!
Last but not least...the bathroom reveal! I didn't get the best picture today, so look for more details on Friday, but here is our new bathroomy digs...
That's all for this segment. Now go love on Hallie and the others linking up over at Moxie Wife!
