New Blog: CAMARADERIE

13 May

Hi everyone! I know it has been a while, but I wanted to share my good news: I have started  a new blog with my friend, Chloe.

Here’s our brief description of the blog, but feel free to pop on over and check it out yourself:

This new blog is the inspiration of Chloe Turbyeville and Mollie Cain, but we hope for it to grow into so much more. We want to build CAMARADERIE in to a place where contributors can come together to share ideas and build a true online community. That’s the great thing about the internet, after all, it can make the world so much smaller and build friendships over miles and oceans! We have both tried individual blogs in the past, but became frustrated by running the whole thing alone. This time, we are focusing on what the very title of our blog means:

CA•MA•RA•DE•RIE – noun, \ˌkäm-ˈrä-d(ə-)rē, :
a feeling of good friendship among the people in a group

We want to share our lifestyles, our crafts, our hometown, good food, and more. So jump in and join us as we embark on this endeavor!

New Blog! Check Out Blogging Mollie!

25 Apr

Hi all! I know it has been quite some time since my last post to GoodGollyMissMollie. Many things have happened in the last couple of years: moving [4 times!], new jobs [4!], traveling, and illness.  For a fresh beginning to blogging, I started a brand new blog a little while back.  Since I continue to get quite a bit of traffic on this site, I thought you might be interested to see what I’m doing these days.  So from now on, feel free to check out Blogging Mollie:

Thank you to everyone who has continued to support this little blog, and I look forward to seeing you over at Blogging Mollie!

moving time!

28 Jul

So, James & I have been discussing this for a while but earlier this week we just decided to go for it; we’re moving back to Missouri… on Monday. As such, I will be MIA on the blog while I’m packing & relocating. Once things get situated in Missouri, I promise I’ll be back to blogging. In the meantime, if you want to know how the process is going you can follow my Twitter to stay updated.

It’s crazy to think that just over a year ago, we made the move to Maine & now we’re moving back to Missouri. Just another adventure in life, I guess.

ob-la-di ob-la-da :: music monday

25 Jul

The Beatles:

The Beatles are a band that need no introduction, but I’m learning that not everyone is familiar with “Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da.” This has to be one of my one of my favorite songs. Could it possibly be because my name is mentioned throughout the song? Maybe… But really, it’s a great song. Have a listen…

no A/C? :: save the world saturdays

23 Jul

Okay folks, it has been in the 90′s this whole week & we don’t have an air-conditioner. Today we are trying to run as little electronics as possible as to keep the heat in our apartment to a minimum [so this post will be breif]. In this way, we are doing our part to conserve energy [mind you we are slightly being forced because if given the option, it would be like an ice box in here today!]
But, turning the A/C off is seriously something to think about! Some people always run either their heater or air-conditioner, which can be wasteful. I just want to suggest to you that when the weather permits, turn off your “fake air” and open up your home to the outdoors.
That’s all I can afford for today. Much love to you all!

meet darkeyedfran :: follow friday

22 Jul

Hooray for Friday Follows! I’m so excited to share Dark Eyed Fran’s blog, Life at the Vanity. I mentioned yesterday that blogging about lipstick was a hint. Fran’s blog is “a makeup addict’s duty to the world.” She shares all about her personal experiences with makeup: the products she loves & why. On a personal note, I’ve known this lady since she was in 6th grade; she’s been one of my sister’s best friend for years. It has been so great to see the girl bloom in to an awesome woman. And now, I’m addicted to her blog! But enough of my babbling, read the interview & see for yourself…

Good Golly Miss Mollie: Tell us about yourself…
Dark Eyed Fran:
I am currently in Graduate school to get my Masters in Teaching so I can teach either middle or high school! I graduated with a BA in art and have won numerous awards including the converse “punk your chucks” contest, and designing the Hyatt hotels house chardonnay! I love vintage things (even before it was popular I was an old soul), baking, art, makeup, and a glass of sweet tea!

GGMM: Where does “Dark Eyed Fran” come from?
DEF:
Darkeyedfran was the name I used for my deviant art account, my middle name is Frances and and I have dark eyes which I love!

GGMM: When you were apartment hunting was a vanity a requirement or just a bonus?
DEF:
The vanity was an added bonus but it pretty much sealed the deal in my apt. hunt. Also the building itself is a historical monument built in 1926 and still sports the original elevator with closing gate.

GGMM: What made you decide to start blogging about makeup?
DEF:
I consider makeup reviews to be my “duty to the world” in a way, I always try and make informed decisions when buying a makeup product because there are so many flops! So I find it my duty to report how well the makeup performs, which are my favorite etc. I also have ALOT of makep.

GGMM: Since you’re just recently started, what kind of feedback are you getting & are you surprised by any of it?
DEF:
I’m very surprised that my blog isn’t even a week old and it had views from 5 different countries and over 200 american views! I was floored and really excited that I could make even that amount of difference in someone’s cosmetic journey! Alot of people respond on my facebook because they dont have blogger and they really seem to be receptive, even people i haven’t talked to in years have suddenly come to me for advice!

GGMM: What is your goal for this blog?
DEF:
This blog is really my incentive for finishing my homework I must say, I tell myself that I can make a post if I finish on time! the overall goal is to help people save money, there will be some mediocre reviews eventually, i’ve just started with drugstore things I really love!

GGMM: What do you hope readers take away from your blog?
DEF:
I hope to take away a sense of purpose for this blog and to instill the idea that beauty is not the same thing as being vain…you can love makeup to feel better and more classy and thats not a bad thing. I often post in my PJs! I think in my mascara post I have my hanes t-shirt on…If I can show people that i’m not afraid of being imperfect even though im a beauty blogger then i’ve made some kind of a difference!

To Fran, thank you for being a joy & all around wonderful! To everyone else, go check out Life at the Vanity.

lipstick that i actually like :: thursday treats

21 Jul

So, I love makeup. I do. I don’t feel that I need makeup to leave the house, or anything. I just love the versatility that makeup provides. Plus, I’m an artist at heart & what better canvas to paint than my own face? That being said, I have never liked lipstick [or lip gloss for that matter]. NEVER. I’m pale & growing up my mom was always telling me that I needed some color on my lips to complete my look. I would slick on a tinted lip balm & call it good. My biggest complaint about lipstick was that it felt like I was wearing lipstick… eww! Goopy, slippery, unnatural lipstick. While I do love makeup, I hate feeling like I’m wearing makeup! I stick to stuff that is lightweight & natural feeling while fulfilling it’s make-uppy function.

All of this to tell you now, I have found a lipstick that I love. LOVE. This is also a neat post because: a) I don’t just want this Thursday Treat, I actually have it & b) I’m giving you a hint at tomorrow’s Friday Follow… I’m not going to say any more than “Dark Eyed Fran” is the one who introduced me to this lipstick. Okay, let’s get on with it.

Introducing Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick! This stuff feels like wearing lip balm, but looks like you’re wearing lipstick. Seriously, was this lipstick designed just for me? I am really excited about this makeup find. I think one of the ways they accomplish the great feel is through the LiquiSilk, which basically means that there is silk in your lipstick! Can you say luxurious? Plus, the first color I tried “Pink in the Afternoon” was the very same color that Audrey Hepburn wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

So, if you’re looking for a good drugstore lipstick that is worth more that what you spent on it, try Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick. I’m not being paid by Revlon to tell you about this product, I’m just trying to share my joy for this product.

Have you tried the Super Lustrous Lipstick? Tell me what you think. Or, do you have a lipstick you love? Tell me all about it!
