Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

July 28, 2015

   A few weeks ago I found myself in the nail aisle at Walmart.  I was on my weekly search for the perfect nude shade. I'm looking for a pinkish nude if ya'll happen to know of one. Any who I found the set of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel. I liked the coral color so I decided to try it. I added the nude to my cart too, but I honestly don't like it that much. After several little brick scratching tests, and lots of hand-washing dishes, I conclude this is the best polish ever!

It Cosmetics: Bye Bye Pores

July 22, 2015

       post button

I cannot express enough how much I love IT Cosmetics. At first my thought was wow this is too expensive for me, but after trying the products, I don't know how I'll ever live without them! After receiving their products I've noticed such a change in my skin. Less acne, softer, supple skin. My skin-tone is more even, and believe it or not but my old acne scars are diminished. I have not changed anything in my skincare routine. I just added IT Cosmetics to my makeup routine.
Recently the company sent me the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder, and let me just say.. this stuff is legit! I have been playing with it for about a week or so truly testing its boundaries. No, seriously I mowed with a full face yesterday. FLAWLESS! I paired it with my Naturally Pretty Face Palette for the perfect highlight and contour, with perfectly rosy cheeks.

Life Lately...

July 21, 2015

My life has been a series of wake up, study, stress, forget to eat, sleep, redo. I am studying for an entry test into college. Yep, I'm doing it! I realize its not a pass or fail test, but it is a test and they freak me out all the same. I have taken a practice online six times. Every time I fail... MAJOR! I already know when I take the real one I'm either gonna freak out, and have to take extra classes to make up the knowledge, or pass get into regular classes and not understand a damn thing. 
Why am I being so candid? I want you to show this to your son or daughter. I want you to save this to show the younger ones when they get to the age they need to be thinking about college. The next words your going to read are ones I heard personally, but never took the time to think about.

So a few weeks ago I posted a picture on instagram of the most delicious random creation I've made thus far. These awesome treats were a huge hit with the kids, and were so easy.

The Honest Truth: Letting Go....

July 14, 2015

I wrote about six posts on motherhood this past week. Erasing everyone, starting over, until I wrote this one. It's leery to post because it's so personal, but I felt like if I felt this way maybe other moms do too. Maybe too, someone out there has a different spin on it, maybe they can help me, and others like me. This is my moms honest truth.
