I am a teacher and a student. I'm also a mom to a boy that just became an adult.
I Iove reading, hiking, art, music, cooking, and seeking new ways to be healthy.
I recently started a woman's community on Facebook. I don't allow politics or religion to be discussed there because I want women to meet each other on an equal playing ground. We inspire each other. We build each other up. It's wonderful to see how many women come together and support each other in business and on a personal level when they don't know the lines that would normally divide them like religion and politics. We have women of all ages ranging from their twenties to their seventies. We discuss books, we tell naughty jokes, we share recipes, we share health tips. We also share Beauty advice. I was in the beauty industry for 35 years and learned a lot in that time. I love passing that information on.
I'm a little bit of a makeup junkie. I love trying new products. When I find stuff that really works, I get excited to tell other people about it!
I don't like the original Too Faced mascara because of the wand. Honestly let's think about it and be truthful how does that really work on the eyelashes being narrow in the middle and fat on the ends? It wasn't a great mascara and it got all over my eyes and smeared horribly. I was willing to give the waterproof mascara try the formula itself is okay but the wind is so stupid. Honestly who do they make this one for? It's way too big and the shape is stupid it did nothing for my eyelashes. The only thing going for it is that the formula itself is pretty good I used a wand from another mascara and it replied okay. It didn't build eyelashes didn't look real. Lie quite a bit of it to make a difference. I'm sorry but it's just not worth the almost $30 price tag
I did not purchase this particular brush set from tarte. Tart has always excited me every season with a new brush collection to match their current theme. Last year during holiday time I received the Park Avenue princess brush collection and I love them. The mermaid brushes, the flower power brushes are all beautiful and work wonderfully. However this collection is cumbersome, awkward, and the sizes of brushes don't seem to very that much. I saw them in the store and I was really disappointed. I personally would not purchase them I've seen cheaper brushes at TJ Maxx that looks like the same quality. I'm really disappointed in this particular collection and I hope they're planning on something better for the holidays. Sorry tart I love you but this collection is a fail or me.
This palette is Iconic. Every makeup Diva should have this in their wardrobe it is the original neutral palette that started the pallet craze. The Shadows are smooth and creamy and last all day. There are cool and neutral Shades in this palette to be able to create anything from a new dye to a dark smokey eye. I believe Urban Decay has discontinued this one but if you can still find it at macys.com it's at a reduced price.
This is a beautiful hydrating concealer it doesn't cake up under the eyes. I would say the coverage is about medium I am not a person who likes to wear heavy makeup as far as foundations and concealers go. This is very creamy consistency and sets easily with a finishing powder.

I received a surprise complementary pouch of this brown rice quinoa pilaf in the mail. It was super convenient and easy to heat up. Usually I'm not a fan of prepared foods. But when I checked the ingredient list there really aren't a lot of preservatives like other pouch rice products on the market. I added sauteed mushrooms and parmesan cheese and turn this into almost like a main dish it was so delicious and convenient. I seriously recommend this for people who are looking to add more nutritious side dishes or options that are convenient to their lives
I love Luna bars! I'm allergic to peanuts and I'm glad that Luna offers many varieties that are peanut-free. The coconut chocolate one taste just like an Almond Joy I have a mini one as dessert sometimes. When I am working and I don't have time to sit down and eat a full meal a Luna Bar can be the most satisfying thing to hold me over until I can eat real food. Luna Bar is real food but it satisfies my craving for junk food. My absolute favorite flavor is the Almond cinnamon it tastes to me as good as cinnamon Frosted Flakes or a Cinnabon cinnamon roll. It's my go to breakfast when I'm in a hurry a small glass of almond milk and the cinnamon almond Luna Bar. Keeps me going for hours
