NAIL INSPIRATION FROM JULEP*This post contains affiliate links*
1. Mini hearts: Use two coats of Florence, a classic camel crème polish. Let dry, then use a toothpick or the dotting tool in the Creativity Kit to make the heart with Shawn, a poppy pink polish. First make two dots, then add the bottom triangle of the heart. 2. Dots with Naked Nail: Start with a clear base coat. Create the naked naked look by cutting out a V-shape out of scotch tape and sticking it on your nail. Use Shawn, our poppy polish, to fill in around the nail around the tape. Let dry, then use theCreativity Kit dotting tool or a toothpick to make white dots using Brigitte. 3. French Stripes: Apply two coats of Brigitte, a white crème polish, to all nails and let dry. Then, using the striping tool in theCreativity Kit or a toothpick to add your stripes. I always use scotch tape to help make guidelines for my lines, or else they often get squiggly! 4. Heart Accent Nail: On four nails, use two coats of Shawn, a poppy cr…

Tyra Beauty Review

Amateur Approved
My First Impression: The face contour looked a little dark. After applying it was definitely better than I thought, given the dark color. The highlighter, looked cakey up close (like a mask) under my eye, but this could be MY ERROR because I skipped moisturizer that day.  Highlighter was just noticeable enough to look natural. *I used the dab on approach when appying instead of a long stroke* As you can see in the picture below, the light reflects (the highlighter) and my face looks thinner and the edges of my face look sun-kissed. (face contour) This brings peoples natural eye reaction toward your eyes. Tyra Take 1 Results Tyra take 2 Moisturizer and primer in hand I was ready to take a go again I googled different ways to contour and highlight the night before. (By no means am I an expert). But I am learning and love playing in makeup.
 I saw on Pinterest, a face line out with contouring and highlighting. This was not like the others I have seen or been reading. This app…

Seventh Generation Review *Natural Laundary soap

Sensitive skin approved As you all know I am a savvy shopper, if I can go cheaper I will. After shopping and buying from all price ranges, I seen very quickly that laundry soap was not one of those things I could compromise on. But not only for myself , my family.also ( well the majority of us anyway) Itchy and in total discomfort , I was now on the search  for a brand we could use. At this point I was desperate.

I did find one and we used it for months , when another itch/break out spell came about. I took my daughter to the doctor to make sure that this rash wasn't something else. While I never heard of what the doctor told me "find two brands and alternate."  Trail and error once again , ugh I got this detergent in a Seventh Generation party pack and I don't know why it didn't occur to me to try this then. My mind was preoccupied with giving them goodie bags to hand out I couldn't wait to see their face when they seen all the awesomeness inside, We had a …

Macee Leigh Opportunity #workfromhome & Be Your Own Boss

Be Your Own Boss
Before I get into what Macee Leigh has to offer, I need to give you some background about me. This way that you can see the WHOLE picture.

My Story
   Like many mothers today, I have always wanted to give my children the world, but sometimes struggle to provide the basic necessities. For years I had wondered how I could maintain an income for myself and be able to give my children the life I knew they deserved.    I am currently home bound due to extreme anxiety issues this leaves me unable to drive. However, I’ve always had a passion inside and I felt could empower people and move mountains, but I couldn’t find an outlet that could accommodate my own personal needs. Due to being home bound, I did feel a void of loneliness, but was able to fill a little of it, with access to social media. The more I stayed on social media, the more I saw moms staying home and working.  I wanted that. I researched many companies, but nothing seemed to fit my needs. Prices of their produc…

Tastefully Simple Review *Mug Cake

Sweet tooth cravings Uncovered?Tastefully Simple provides exceptional tasting experiences and lifestyle solutions, through simple, delicious food and enriching business opportunities. (their mission statement)
I wanted to try so many things from this company but it was just not in my budget at this time so I settled with the "my mug cake" cause I often crave sweets and this was a convenient way to achieve that with minimal mess as well as fast. Total win win, right?

This came so cutely wrapped that for a brief moment I thought of using it as a gift instead. But the Salted Caramel Cake mix kept calling my name. Temptation got the best of me. Don't judge, it happens. This is so easy to do a child could make it. Simply fill the mug ( line inside the cup) empty packet, stir , microwave for 2 minutes, and BAM you have a cake. While I don't like chocolate (unless it's paired with peanut butter) these cakes were just enough sweet to satisfy my craving but it wasn't an o…

Happy New Year

Each year I see/hear so many people start the year with a positive note. With resolutions and determination best intentions are set forth. But this year, I decided to do something a little different. First, we our adding a new tradition.

Secondly, instead of listing the things that we aren't going to do or what we are going to give up this year (resolutions). We have decided to set a list of things that we want to achieve in this year. For me it mostly pertains to my business. Reaching moms who want to make a little cash and stay home. engagement on my fan page, more YouTube videos, and starting my Periscope. Personally, I am focused on learning from every angle of my interests. Like blogging, networking marketing, and dealing with my illnesses.
I have great feelings about this year and can not wait to see what it brings.
