Hi! I am... A Child of God, a busy Mother of 3 very energetic, rowdy, sweet little Boys! I am also a farmer's wife who loves farm life and country living! Love trying and reviewing new products, esp playing with hair and make up! Perfume is my one vice though! Very active in church and school activities. Every day is a learning experience, from grocery shopping to maintaining tasks as Secretary of Morris Inc Farms, our century family owned farm where we raise rice, corn, and soybeans (and a few chickens too ;) I think sharing what we know about anything with one another is helpful! I like to try and review new products for home, health & beauty, children's clothes, fragrances & more!
By FAR the prettiest GRAY eyeshadow i've ever seen/touched! Gray is a hard color anyway, and Guerlain nails it! This pretty, classic color is named Grey Charles as the brand originated in Paris! The shade itself reminds me of that perfect gray sweater or scarf, the one thats really warm...yet cool, and goes with everything! Shimmery-No, Silky-yes, buildable, blendable, goes with smokies or shake into a nude pallette- this is going to last and last! Beautiful design and compact. Kinda large and bulky, but part of its beauty! I m6srlf think its a tad rich for my pocketbook, thankfully, mine was a gift from a contest with my friend Dave Lackie, beauty editor. ;) All in all- i have yet to find a dupe that is near a match for this actual color either. I gave this 4 stars because you dont get much for the price- but if price is no factor- this is the winter gem for you!
The Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick comes in a very high end expensive looking tube. It is black with 2 square cubes stacked for the lid that sit ontop of the third cube as the base. Pros: Very nice looking packaging Very creamy formula Very high pigmented color Blendable Cons: On the pricier side $$ Will get on teeth Tip: Take a sip of water from a straw right after applying to keep from getting on teeth. Conclusion and Rating: I gave this product 5 stars because it is a very well made formula that actually has some science behind it...as well as art...presentatiom is great too! #guerlainlover
My #1 go to when coffee just wont cut it is my 5 hour energy shot! I am a super busy mom of 3 super busy little boys, very involved on our family farm, in church, school, ect. Sometimes I feel like i'll fall asleep driving and i will pull out my 5 hour! I like that it does not have negative side effects on me- such as jitters, nerves, ect. Also- unlike many (most other brands of energy drinks, espresso shots, and so on - that i have tried the big differenciator here is there is not a huge 'crash' or sugar roller coaster as with many energy drinks. I like the pink lemonaide flavor because it is sweet and tart and goes down quick. The aftertaste is pleaseant and sweet sour tangy with this as opposed to the berry or pom flavors which can leave a bitter aftertaste. Not pink lemonaide, just a twang and a bang!
Laura Geller Gilato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey is a gorgeous color! If you are to imagine a bar of pure gold, fresh natural honey, glistening of the sun on the water on a sunny day and swirl in some glittery dust...this is what the illuminator is like! It is a combo of shimmer, glitter, and rich dust that is smooth and glistening. It is a multi layered type formula that if you continue to blend with thin out from glitter to shimmery fairy dust. Spreads out easily, is soft and dusty yet creamy. Pigmentation is depending on the amount of blend and spread...like honey on toast! For those not seeking the golden honey guild glisten goddess but a more subtle shine- you can use this just sparingly and blend away or build upon easily. I like to mix a little in or on lids, lips, and blush from time to time as well. Also looks great as a all over body accentuate: just dust in collar bone, around base of calfs, ect for an all over glow!
This stuff really works!!! Briogeo Rosarco Milk leave in conditioning Spray is an ultra light mist in a pump spray bottle. Normally, milky products are thick or heavy and can weigh down the hair or leave it feeling 'filmy, sticky, gummy, or greasy'... I will tell you this will not do that. I like the detangling effects, softening, strengthening properties, and versatility of the product. I have used it when my hair is wet or even a spritz on a dry pony or bun to smooth flyaways and 'soften' my hair. Rosarco really does make my hair feel sooooo soft! Now, it is a bit on the pricier side at $20 a bottle- but you dont have to use a whole lot- even on long, thick, hair. My hair is very dry from our well water- and this seriously helps it.
I think its fair to begin with telling you, I don't drink a lot of beer so I am no expert- but occasionally I will. I chose the ultra superior light because of the lower carbs and lower calories. I have actually tried it a few times. It is not a real strong bitter flavor, which is good. Some may say taste is a bit watered down or weak, but, I am okay with that. Knowing it is low carb, low cal, it is still a decent flavor and is crisp and carbonated. Best when cold
Although the tray is very handy and a good toy topper- they are not the sturdiest things. My baby boy did like it however ended up breaking it off when he realized he could. pros: helps baby reach toy or teether, handy, easy to use cons: small, not very durable
I had never tried a lip plumper before I recieved one in a free gift with purchase from e.l.f. online. I like the conveinance of this duo stick also. Its handy little packaging is two ended for easy storage. The plumper actually does work and heres how: it contains a cinnamon based ingrediant that tingles causing the lips to temporarily swell. It is non painful and pleasant in smell. (If you like cinnamon) It is great for pre-selfie, family photo, or just a little pick up to your look in the evening or morning. The primer does not have a scent. It is a strong thick primer for your lips and must be used as a base! Be careful to apply after moisurizing and/or exfoliating lips- as it can be drying. However you wont get the drying effect as long as you use a chapstick or lip balm first. I wouldn't apply on top of any color because the off-white will mix with the color and you may get an inpleasant looking result of the mix. So, apply primer sparingly, let dry for a couple minutes and blot excess on tissue or hand. Then you can apply your color or plumper, or plumper-color-plumper - gloss is my preferred method with this product.
The Velvet Matte lipstick by e.l.f. comes in about 10 shades and is by far the Esscence of its name... a matte lipstick that goes on velvety smooth and fine. Its not quick drying and wont stain. It does not last super long like some mattes, yet is moisturizing. I have found that I just barely sprinkle some dusty powder or shadow a top center of bottom lip and ever so gently blot together- it prolongs setting and wear time!

The frontline Spray for flea and Ticks is helpful for prevention. As far as for treatment- you may need to invest in something a big stronger. Also, for short haired animals- its fairly easy to just spray and go- but for longer haired animals- using a brush (wear gloves) comb the spray from root to tip for a more thourogh application.
