I am a wife, mother and lover of all things glam, edgy and fun. I have lived through a lot of difficult situations in my life and I am still growing and learning. One of my joys is makeup and also trying to be a positive influence for others going through a tough season in life. Sometimes, just one positive word can make someone's day and that is what I want to do!
I live a good body scrub and this is one of them. I am always envious of tgose that have great skin because I struggle dily with dry skin and Keratosis Pilaris. In addition to moisturizing frequently, the thing that works best in elimonating those stubborn KP bumps is exfoliation. The Clarins bidy scrub does this and when Im done it leaves my skin feeling a ton smoother and much more healthy. Definitely an item I would repurchase and use frequently!
Anyone with skin issues or no skin issues needs to have this product. As a 42 year old woman who has always had problem skin, I have tried a lot of different products that promised to be the answer. They weren't! This product kept all of it's promises and has turned out to be the answer. Since I was young, my face has been dry, red and highly textured. The redness is most heavy on my cheeks, between my eyebrows and on my chin. The bumps are extremely noticeable and heavily concentrated along my jawline and chin. I started using the Good Genes in the morning and then the Luna Oil and Good Genes at night before bed. I noticed an immediate difference in texture the very next morning after my first use and have noticed a reduction in redness over the last month and continued softening. It takes less foundation to cover the redness as it has decreased daily and my skin looks and feels softer. My makeup applies easier than ever and I continue to notice changes in my skin. I am very excited to see this much difference in one month and can't imagine the difference I will see after six months of consecutive use. This is a pricey product and I had to pinch my pennies to buy it, but it is soooooo worth it! Definitely a must!
I love Milani lipsticks and that didn't change when they came out with these. The Milani Matte Lip Cremes are one of the best liquid lipsticks for the price point. The formula goes on with ease and dries fairly quickly to a matte finish without being overly drying. You do get a small amount of transfer when smooching or taking a drink, but that is the trade off for the comfort. They have a large variety of colors to choose from including metallics and for the price you just can't beat it! Definitely a great buy!
We have had Time Warner Cable Service for the past four years. We have their mid size plan which is supposed to allow us to have three to four devises running on it at roadrunner speed all at the same time. Although it works most of the time, it doesn't work great and has issues. At least twice weekly it will just go offline and we have to reboot everything. If it rains, we start getting signal interruption like there is water in the line and so our signal gets patchy. This leads to frustration when you are watching a video that is stopping and starting or trying to download/upload files for work. Time Warner has been ok, but I can't give a glowing review because they have never once done anything more than what is absolutely required or necessary. We are moving soon and will be changing providers, hopefully this next one will understand the benefit of going a little bit above and beyond because this is something TWC has yet to learn!
It's not a complete day in our house until we have had a bag or bowl of goldfish spilled on the floor. That right there tells you how many bags of goldfish we have bought. They are our daughter's favorite snack, and I don't mind giving the. To her because she has always had the whole grain variety. She loves the, and will choose those over chips most days. That is a win for Goldfish in my book!
We love cheesy crackers in our house, at least that is what our six year old calls them. We started replacing potato chips with these a while ago and know one seems to be missing out. All of us like Cheez-It crackers so it was an easy change to make. This way we still get a crunch but in a little healthier way. If you are looking for a snack cracker, Cheez-It is definitely the best brand of cheesy snack cracker out there!
I Loooooe cashews! These are my absolute faves and usually the only kind I buy. If you are a cashew lover, then you definitely need to try the Planters brand. They are awesome. I buy them for our pantry, but I love the, so much my husband gets them as stocking stuffers at Christmas for me. You definitely need to try these!
I love these peanuts. I think most people always love a salted peanut the most, but that isn't the best to have all the time. I really like the dry roasted as it still gives me a little salty taste without all of the oil and added salt of regular salted peanuts. The have great flavor and we love having the, as a snack.
The Strawberry Pop Tarts have been one of my faves since I was a teenager. I try not to eat them all the time because of the amount of sugar, but they make a great little treat in the afternoon or evening. What's funny is, I don't think we have ever had them for breakfast. For us, they are more of a fun treat to change things up. Sometimes we don't even warm them up we just eat them straight out of the bag. It's like a little piece of strawberry pie. Definitely not your best for a nutritional morning start, but they come in handy on those super busy days when you are in a pinch and also make for a great treat!
This is my husbands favorite cereal, by far. We buy a new box every time we go to the store. If you are looking for a natural cereal with tons of fiber and protein that still tastes good, then try the GoLean Crunch. Seriously, I am the picky eater that tends to not like a lot of the all natural and whole grain products, but my husband got me to try this one and it is a genuinely good cereal. It isn't often that something this healthy tastes good too, so I would suggest you give it a try! You might be surprised. The price is a little higher than your average run of the mill cereal, but if you are a healthy eater, then you are used to seeing that with most products that are a healthier alternative.
