I am a woman in her later 40s who believes skincare is the most important step of any beauty routine. But I battle burning, ultra-sensitive skin making even skin care hard. I love perfume, okay, I'll admit I'm perfume junky, and I love getting samples of perfumes just so I can try as many as possible. My mom raised me to look my best whenever I step outside and I try very hard to do just that. Although I battle a disease with no cure, I do my best to stay positive and continue to do things I love, such as reading, exercising when I feel well enough, and educating myself about topics I find interesting. I'm a magazine junkie and subscribe to many different ones covering fashion, beauty, health and fitness, entertainment, politics, and even a medical magazine about neurological diseases. My children are the most important people in my life and my daughter shares my passion for looking good, except she has more girl in her than I hold in my little finger (so she pulls off the "tight" much better than this old lady). Education is a big deal to me, hence my love for learning about all things. If I'm passionate about someone or something, I'm fiercely loyal and will always give 110% in everything I do. I believe honesty is the best policy and making good decisions only makes you happier.

Purchased these business cards as an alternative to spending a huge sum of money towards a new business venture. They work just as described and printed off beautifully. The perforations made breaking down the cards so easy without any tears or mishaps. They look as good as any I have had professionally made for me. Laser Business Cards AVE5377
I use a lot of OPI products and I do like the convenience of the combination of top and bottom coat in one jar. There is no denying that the products are high quality and do their job well. Great formula. The brush is excellent. It fans out to deposit the polish as designed. It produces a glossy top coat so your nails really take a shine when you use their Start to Finish base and top coat. OPI Start To Finish Base Coat and Top Coat
I love Majestic Pure and they put out some good quality essential oils. I have had to learn that you need to read the label because not all of their essential oils are pure or therapeautic grade. So I am lucky that one of my first purchases from them, their lemon essential oil, is classified as a pure essential oil. This is a great quality essential oil and I use it all the time. When I purchased it I bought it to share with my children, but since then I have used this to diffuse into the air, as well as in soaps, creams, and balms. I never knew lemon was such a versatile essential oil. This is a must for anyone getting into essential oils. Majestic Pure Lemon Essential Oil - 100% Pure and Natural, Therapeutic Grade, 1 fl. oz.
I had never used an EOS lip balm before, so I wasn't expecting such a large sphere. I purchased the flavor Vanilla Mint as an add-on item for $1.84 on Amazon. I couldn’t pass up what I thought was a darn good price. I'm not much of a mint fan, but it is a well-balanced scent without one overpowering the other. I did take one star off because I didn't find it as moisturizing as I had hoped it to be. It's definitely something I can use come summertime, but its just not strong enough for my winter dried lips. eos™ Visibly Soft Lip Balm Vanilla Mint
I am faithful to Trim nail care products. They are high quality for a reasonable price. I like to purchase the dual kit where I get a nail clipper and toe nail clipper at the same time as it is cost effective. Even though I no longer clip my finger nails there is still the need to have the smaller clippers around. Hang nails, slivers, etc. I trust my nail care to Trim and have for many years.

It took me years to break the habit of clipping my fingernails. Now I prefer to use a buffer to smooth out my nails and shape them the way I prefer them. Trim makes the best nail care products and I prefer their buffing block over all others. With one tool I’m able to smooth, shape, shine, and buff my nails. And the Trim block lasts much longer than similar blocks. Trim Buffing Block
I love Onyx nail polish remover! It’s super strength makes removing nail polish a breeze. I also use it to remove permanent marker off the bottom of shoes for resale. If you are careful it will remove the marker without leaving behind any damage to the soles of the shoes. If you’re reckless and over forceful it will discolor the soles but leave no other damage. I have found that Onyx works the best in removing marker. So while I no longer use it to take off my polish (unless in a pinch) it is my go to for permanent marker removal on the bottom of shoes.
