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 crème polish. Apply two coats of Brigitte, a white crème polish, to your accent nail. Let dry. Then, with a tooth pick or Creativity Kit add the heart on white nail, starting with two dots and then filling in the rest of the heart.

Tyra Beauty Review

Amateur Approved

makeup sticks
I received this product free in exchange for my honest feedback.

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 highlighter and contouring

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 approach took the contour around the side of the cheeks then stopped, not to the jawline.  Feeling inspired, I thought I would try it this different approach.

This time I glide it across the top of my forehead instead of dabbing it, since it blended good before I wasn’t worried. However, I got some build up that would not blend. I did still have that mask or cakey look even after apply moisturizer prior to the makeup application. I decided to try adding some powder to my finished face. That did lessen the effect of most of that appearance. When I asked others about if it appeared cakey to them, they stated no. Luckily that means it isn't noticeable.

My final thoughts: Overall, the concept and the convenience of the stick is extremely appealing. I am sure it is also less intimidating for those ladies whom what to incorporating highlightening and contouring into their makeup routine. It has a creamy texture once it’s on your skin. Extremely a light wear, to the point I forgot I had it on and slept in it. OOPs (yes I know this is bad)
This definitely brought back memories of my teens. When I first started wearing makeup, I started with a foundation stick. Oh boy, that sounds funny. The makeup world has definitely come a long way since then.

Now let’s meet the awesome lady with this makeup, Sammie Gathercole

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 blast 
           I received this product free from Generation Good for my honest feedback.

Well guess what? I was lucky enough to receive three free samples of  this "plant-based formula"

First thing I thought was: oh my this is little, can it really get a load of clothes clean?  Skeptical I thought to myself if this can get my fiances work clothes clean with this little amount, then I need to buy this. Come on you know you use more then the recommended use also? 

The test went fabulous, They were just as clean as the previous brand I used but with less the amount. Now, to test on this on the rest of us in these house. GUESS WHAT? We have a winner, this was actually something that we can all use. I immediately contact my neighbor,who was having similar issues with detergents like us. I ran over to give her a sample to try for her self. She said I was just in time she was putting a load in right then. lol

Her feedback: I wanted to add more soap to the washer as I always do. I just didn't see how that little bit could get something clean and I missed the smell (this is unscented). When they dried I was surprise that with my bladder/bowel issues these were not only clean, but there was no oder.

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 products where outrageous and only seemed to help one specific need. I wanted variety and affordable for the average individual. 
    A few days before my birthday in 2014, a friend approached me about a new company I had never heard of. Automatically, I thought, "No way I can afford a starter up kit." As we continued to talk I got really excited learning about Macee Leigh and what they could offer me. It was not like the other companies that focus on a particular item; rather they have a little bit of everything. We continued to talk over several days, and I finally had to explain that as much as this seemed like it was for me, I didn’t even have the small startup fee in my budget.
What she did next changed my life forever..........
Her words still ring in my head till this day, 
 To make along story short, I had no idea what I was doing, where to begin, and was terrified. I started out very slow, but have grown to have my own team, achieve the incentives, and recently earned the title of Team Builder Specialist. IF I CAN DO IT ANYONE CAN.

What is Macee Leigh?

It is the opportunity to start your own business for a small investment. ( 3 price options available) Our motto is No Woman Left Behind. This motto was built around the idea of all woman being equal and able to succeed regardless of any barriers that might be thrown in her way.
Macee Leigh is also the newest and most innovative, online shopping experience. Unlike other direct sales companies, being a Macee Leigh Specialist will give your customers a "girls nigh out" experience every time they shop. With our every changing and selection of various products, you can meet multiple needs/wants with just ONE company.

Final thoughts

   Macee Leigh has given me a sense of direction, purpose, and the confidence.This has given me the confidence that I now can do anything. I have formed so many meaningful friendships throughout this experience. I have even broken out of my shell and went way beyond my comfort zone. I am so honored to be a part of this company and look forward to the upcoming years with all these amazing ladies. I know if I can succeed, anyone can.  My sponsor (aka upline) at that time, showed me that motto stood for women like me, women that need support, friendship, and financial freedom.
For more details, contact me in the comments to set up a time for a pressure free chat to see if we are a fit for you. You can also check out the Macee Leigh site to see our current line of products.

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?

My Mug Cake

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.
Mug cake
The fill line inside the cup
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 overpowering sweet that you typically taste in a full size cake. Some parts seemed a little over cooked and some seemed a little under cooked,but this was expected. That's just how microwaves cook.
I did a little different  with the second cake. Instead of setting the time and letting it cook, I cooked for one minute then stirred and cooked for another minute. This seemed to help the issue of it being cooked consistently.
Overall, this was a very user friendly, less mess concept , that I like. This would make an excellent gift for any occasion. I think I just might purchase again for gift this time.

If you're a foodie, be sure to check out all the varieties of mixes, seasonings, recipes, and more.

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.
We have already added one.
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.
