I am a stay-at-home-mom of two plus two fur kids. My hobbies and interests are many and varied. I love to cook and bake and I'm always trying new recipes, preferably with a good glass of wine nearby. I am a makeup and skincare addict. Waaay too much space in my bathroom is dedicated to these items. I also am an avid crafter! Yarn is my medium of choice, hooks are my tools. I also sew some, and I would love to learn woodworking. I make homemade chapstick that many people have told me I should sell (hmmm), and though I haven't yet, I want to foray into the world of candle making.
My husband and I both love this subscription box. Mostly, it's for him, but I use the blades we get too and they're really great quality. You can pick your own price point by what grade of razor you want and they send you a free handle with your first box. If you switch the blades you get, they send you a new handle to fit those blades.
We also get shave butter shipped to us and it gives me the best shave I've ever had. My husband agrees. It's very moisturizing and leaves my skin feeling very soft.
I love this bronzer. It's pigmented, but not too much, and it's easy to blend. If you end up looking like an oompa loompa wearing this, you really had to be trying to. Wears nicely, doesn't get weird and patchy, lasts all day.
I love NYX but I can't stand this powder. It's very finely milled, yet I found a few larger, grainy chunks in mine. The rest that was milled properly was exceedingly....powdery, but not in the right way. Even just opening the lid would send a puff of powder flying. And it has a weird smell. It's been a while since I've used this product so I can't describe the smell exactly, but it's enough that more than a year later, I would recognize it immediately.
I think this is a good primer, but it's not the most ideal for me. It is moisturizing and feels really nice on the skin. I feel like that makes it better suited to normal to dry skin, but not as good for oily skin. My t-zone tends to get oily and this seems to contribute to a bit of the shine. It's not a dramatic difference, but it is noticeable.
I have volunteered for and adopted from the ASPCA and I recommend it to anyone searching for a furry friend. The people that I have volunteered with all have a passion for animals and want nothing more than to give neglected and abused animals a better life. Every pet deserves a loving home, and the ASPCA does its best to be that home until an animal can find its forever home.
A few hours a month can make such an impact in a child's life. I have worked for BB/BS before and I absolutely love the organization. Bigs are encouraged to do free and low cost things with their Littles, and local chapters are more than happy to help you find fun and enriching things to do in your area. Also check out Bowl for Kids' Sake, which usually takes place in the spring, to help raise money for the organization.
This is such a great organization to participate in, and they make it so easy to get involved. If you don't have time to volunteer, take an hour or two or of your day and go to your local Relay for Life event when it's in your town. Walk, check out what people have for sale, get something to eat. Every booth donates proceeds to the organization so you're helping the cause without even having to think about it!
I've been actively playing WoW since 2007, and this is the first expansion since Wrath that has really hit the mark for me. It's a lot of fun, even when you're just leveling. Even when you're leveling through the content for the 4th time, it's still enjoyable. If you are even a little bit interested, I recommend you check it out.
This stuff is literally what the packaging says: amazing. I have hair that gets greasy roots if get anything too heavy on them, yet I have to use something in my hair because the ends get dry and frizzy. This leaves my hair soft and silky, and if I get it too close to my scalp, it doesn't leave me an oily mess. And it smells so good!
I received a generous sample in my ipsy a few months ago that I have been using since because a little bit goes a long way. When I run out of the sample, I will definitely be purchasing this product.
