GIVEAWAY: Wrinkle Filler and Concealer called Dermaflage

WorryLess: The 1st and Only Cosmetic That Looks Like Real Skin.
Movie Magic In Your Medicine Cabinet to Erase Worry Lines

Inline image 1
Time to toss all those plumping products that promised to work.  Say bye-bye to Botox.  Make room for the only at home anti-frown line product you’ll need from now on – WorryLess.  Worryless is indeed the stuff of movie magic. Developed by Hollywood makeup and special effects artists, it uses medical grade silicone to simulate skin—filling and concealing frown lines between your eyebrows instantly!   WorryLess is the first and only topical dermal filler created to virtually erase glabella lines (the deep vertical lines between your eyebrows).  If it works for A-list actors on high definition film, it will work for you!

Upon application, the silicone transforms from a liquid to a flexible rubber-like consistency, which simulates skin.  It seamlessly fills in the deep crevices and because it is translucent, allows your skin to shine through.  The result?  Perfectly, smooth realistic looking skin.

WorryLess is:
Waterproof (lasts approx. 36 hours)
Non-irritating
Non-invasive
Clinically and dermatologist tested
Allergy tested
Pain-free
Instant Results
      
How to Apply in 3 Easy Steps

Step 1: Prime. Brush on Primer over the areas you wish to conceal. Let it dry for 30 seconds.
Step 2: Apply. Apply a small amount to the skin using the pointed precision application tool. With a spatula tool or a finger, blend the edges into the skin.
Step 3: Texture. Place Skin Texture Pad over the area. Press around the edges. Hold in place for about a minute.

Using Makeup With Worryless

Jesus Sees Us Doll & Book








How do you introduce your child to Jesus?

Imagine your children took the same interest and wonder in Jesus and the Christian message as they did in princesses, fairies, and elves… Jesus Sees Us is a packaged Jesus Christ doll that has the same comforting power as a child’s favorite toy or blanket, but is rooted in lessons that last a lifetime. Children respond to the comfort of tangible items when they are young, so why not make that item Jesus and the comfort He gives to ignite their faith? The accompanying book is a tool to assist you in engaging your child and starting the conversation about Jesus’ teachings.

By the time a child turns three years old, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that, like them, Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him. They can understand that Jesus grew up to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same. Children become excited and inquisitive when they can master these facts, ultimately making them more open to deeper conversations and ideas about faith.


The Jesus Sees Us doll is an integral part of fostering your child’s initial introduction to Jesus. Even though we talk to our children about Jesus or take them to Sunday services, they are not always able to understand the importance of the Christian message. Jesus Sees Us is a tool that makes Jesus, His teachings, and the concept of faith both relatable and positive to young children by introducing Him as the loving and forgiving presence in our lives. The doll becomes the tangible connection to the stories and lessons in the book. He is the touchable source of comfort that a child can relate to. The Jesus Sees Us doll has a soft body and a warm, welcoming face. His arms and hands are open, inviting your child to hold him, engage with him, and pray with him. The Jesus Sees Us doll allows your child to “play out” the valuable and timeless lessons of the Bible.

**perfect for Easter**

My son loves getting "presents" in the mail, so I barely had time to grab my phone before he started digging into it. I'm not sure he really knew what to make of it. He's really into trucks and cars right now, so at first the Jesus doll just couldn't compete. But he now enjoys hearing Bible stores at bedtime like Jonah and the whale, David and Goliath, and he enjoys acting out Noah's ark with all his animals. While he is still not a huge fan of the doll itself, he really enjoys hearing Bible stories during the day and at bedtime. It's a start! :)

Would your child enjoy this? Enter to win one!

My husband and I had been using silicone baking mats for years so I decided to try these COOKINA reusable cooking sheet for a little St. Patrick's Day Fun.

The cookies also didn't burn, which is a benefit of using a cooking sheet or mat!

How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You?

{MORE ABOUT HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU?}

How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You? (Apologia Educational Ministries, March 2015)
You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to what you’re saying?
“I remember the day you were born.”
“Turn down the music!”
“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”
“Hold my hand.”
Your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things. Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you’re raising children—she has seven! But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You’ll learn how to recognize God’s instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.

{MY THOUGHTS}
If I'm being honest I only received this book a few days ago, so I haven't gotten too far yet, but it's not what I thought it was. I thought it was a book on how to be a godly parent, or how to NOT use the typical "mom" phrases with your kids, but it turned out to be a daily devotional. I was hoping it was a parenting book, but I can already tell that I will enjoy this book. Each chapter is about 3 pages, and very easy to get through. While I haven't found too many shockingly profound things yet, I still think it's a nice light devotional for people who want something short. I've been reading CS Lewis and John Piper lately, so it's a nice change of pace. Some nights you want something deep and very thought provoking, other nights you want something that will bless you with limited amount of time needed.

THE ILLUSIONISTS – WITNESS THE IMPOSSIBLE™ - COMES TO PHILADELPHIA BEGINNING FEBRUARY 24


THE ILLUSIONISTS - WITNESS THE IMPOSSIBLE™ is the world’s best-selling touring magic show. The show comes directly from Broadway, where it recently finished a 6-week run.   THE ILLUSIONISTS is part of the Broadway Philadelphia season, presented by the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and the Shubert Organization.

The seven stars, each a master in their own field, are:

·         The Manipulator, Yu Ho-Jin.  Considered a rising superstar in the world of magic; Yu Ho-Jin was recently named the 2014 “Magician of the Year,” by Academy of Magical Arts and was the first Asian to win the Grand Prix at the Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques, also known as the “Olympics of Magic.”
·         The Anti-Conjuror, Dan Sperry. Described as Marilyn Manson meets David Copperfield, Dan combines the art of magic with the macabre and is one of the top-10 most Googled people, thanks to a legendary “America’s Got Talent” appearance.
·         The Trickster, Jeff Hobson is the epitome of glamour and showmanship. Don’t be fooled by his innocent appearance; Jeff has audiences laughing long after the curtain goes down.
·         The Escapologist, Andrew Basso. Italy’s star escape artist, Andrew considers Houdini his hero and is fast becoming one of the world’s most popular illusionists. He is the only person in the world to perform Houdini’s famous Water Torture Cell with absolutely no covers.
·         The Inventor, Kevin James, known for innovative illusions, is an inventor, comedian and collector of the strange and unusual. Kevin is one of the most prolific inventors of magic in the world and has created some of the most celebrated illusions of the last century.
·         The Warrior, Aaron Crow, a strong and silent type specializing in weapon magic, has mastered some of the most dangerous acts without saying a single word. Belgium’s international magic sensation, a first place finisher at the World Championships of Magic, he uses swords, paintball guns and powerful crossbows to keep fans on the edge of their seat.
·         The Futurist, Adam Trent, shatters stereotypes and brings a new generation of magic to fans fusing technology illusions, dancing and comedy with classic techniques.

If you want a night full of laughs, edge-of-your-seat moments and fun, you need to see this show! Andrew Basso had me covering my eyes, while simultaneously holding my breath, as he entered the water torture cell. The show had a smooth flow, with a great juxtaposition of comical light moments and serious, death-defying moments, but like most shows, I still had my favorites. They would be the trickster and the futurist. I'm not much of a thriller connoisseur; you could say I am a wuss, so the comical and mystifying acts were the ones I enjoyed most.

GIVEAWAY & BEAUTY REVIEW: Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

I had been hearing a lot about this product by Younique called Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash mascara. People were posting photos on FB that made their lashes look 3x longer, and I'll admit, I was skeptical. I am a beauty buff and usually have to try the new products and see if they measure up to the hype, which is why I was thrilled when I was contacted to review Fiberlash Mascara.


What is Fiberlash Mascara? It's a simple three-step process combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. First step is putting on the transplanting gel which operates like regular mascara coating your lashes and defining them. The second step is the Natural Fibers. They look like the little magnetic pieces in an etch-a-sketch, but they cling to the transplant gel making your lashes look fuller and longer. Final step is another coat of the transplanting gel to bring it all together.

I found that this product is not like other mascara or products where you can use it once and it's mastered. The first time I tried it, well you'll see....




After my first attempt I had fibers all over my face [see arrows]. Since watching a tutorial video, which I'll include below, I learned that it's best to apply the fibers from the middle of your lashes up, NOT starting at the base. That was my problem. I was trying to apply them like mascara, starting at the base and through the tips. First time was a mess, second time looked okay but still not impressive, but by the third/fourth/fifth times I think I had it down. I even learned that you can apply it ones, and then go through all the steps again just at the tips for even longer lashes. Though my application is not yet perfect, it does have an impressive affect. In the future I need to work on spreading my lashes out to get a more natural look instead of "spider eyes," as I call it. You be the judge, what do you think?

Overall I'm very impressed with this product. Had I given up after my first I would have missed out on what this product was capable of. This just goes to show, practice makes progress.

Here is the tutorial video that I found to be so helpful:

Shoplet Review - Duck Tape and Geckotech reusable hooks

I love exciting mail days...when you get more than just bills and flyers...and it was an exciting day when these products office supplies arrived at my door. I received two types of Geckotech reusable hooks (one for up to 3lb, and one for up to 5lb), and Duck packaging tape with dispenser. This may sound like a boring mail day to you, but you don't understand how much I needed hooks and how often I use packaging tape. ;-)

The first product I tried out was the duck tape. They said this tape dispenser was going to be quiet but I didn't believe them. After years of using tape that made annoying stretching noises and crinkling noises, I was a skeptic, but this product proved me wrong! It was quiet. Imagine that, quiet packaging tape...what is the world coming to? haha. I use this all the time when I mail books to Amazon, or mail gifts to friends, and even when I mail paperback books without a box via paperbackswap.com. My son also thinks it's funny to try to stick a small piece on the pets, but don't worry, he doesn't catch them! The opperative word being "try".

I tried out the reusable hooks next. I am a beauty/fashion junky, so I have more make up and styling products than I know what to do with, same goes for scarves and accessories, so hooks are my friend. I decided to use the light weight hook on the side of my vanity so I can hang my hair straightener when I'm  not using it, instead of having it laying on the floor surrounded by cords gallore.I cleaned the surface, pressed on the hook, and voila! I would have hung the hair dryer too, but it didn't have a loop to hang it. Rest assured, the other hook will be put to use in my closet holding belts and scarves.

While I have not had to remove this hook yet, it's supposed to remove easily and without leaving a mark, so when/if I decide to remove it, I know I shouldn't have any issues.

Say "I love you" with Bouqs Flowers

 About the Bouqs:
"Our flowers never sit in a corner store or a dingy warehouse (where they send you the oldest, most-dead flowers they have in the fridge), and they never show up in a van with a 1-800 number on the side. We ship straight from an active volcano where they are grown or from the sunny surf of California, seriously - we’re putting a little romance back in the Bouq. We also cut only what we sell. Other providers source from a supply chain that sees 1 in 3 stems wasted. Across hundreds of thousands of bouquets a year, that’s a lot of wasted land, resources, labor and fuel. We cut only when you order, so we avoid the waste. Finally, our farms provide living wages, childcare, healthcare and adult education. And our growing business supports farm communities, so you can feel good about shopping The Bouqs Company's flowers."

If you aren't already convinced that this is a great company how about I share my experience with you. I decided to order a bouq for my birthday. I realize this sounds a bit silly, but I love getting flowers, so why not, right? They arrived in the morning and were immediately cut and put into water. The rose buds were closed, but by the next day they were open and absolutely gorgeous. While I didn't intend for them to match my kitchen, they ended up doing so, being yellow with red tips. Lovely!

Even the celebrities are raving about them!!!

If you are looking for a site that offers beautiful bouquets for a loved one in your life, try Bouqs today. Valentine flowers are a great way to say "I'm love you." Order them today!
