I’ve decided that this is a great year to start thinking about my skincare. In hindsight, I probably should have started thinking about it when I was 20, but 51 is as good a time to start as any! Recently, I started noticing that I was getting darker spots on my face, so I reached out to a fried of mine who sells R+F and she turned me on to one of their skincare line, REVERSE Brightening Regimen for the Appearance of Skin Dullness, Discoloration and Uneven Skin Tone. I started using it and noticed results immediately, but even more important, I fell in love with the way it makes my face FEEL!! So I decided to go ahead and join up as a consultant. R+F also offers other skincare regimens if you have different issues! If you want to check it out, click on the link!
I’m one of the lucky ones. If you want Kylie Jenner’s new lipstick, you have to be online the MINUTE she restocks. If you wait even a minute, there’s a very good chance that you WILL NOT be able to order Kylie’s Ultra Mattes. I was the lucky one, not once, but TWICE!!! I got my first oder of Dolce K about a week ago and I’m in LOVE!! I got in a second time to get the Koko K, but I’m waiting (im)patiently for the mail to come in. Now, If I could just get lucky enough to get the glosses!!!!
Enjoy my review. The lighting is a little off and I look really shiny. It’s also the first time I’ve put lipstick on using a computer as a mirror. It’s all good though! I made the video just for fun!!! Also, make sure to like my youtube channel!!!
Last week I was involved in a car accident. Another driver ran a red light and got me pretty good. I was very lucky and walked away with only a few bruises, and so did the young man.
I didn’t even see it coming. In fact, I was so disoriented I thought I had died. All I heard was a loud POW!! I began spinning around and everything was black. There was a smell of what I thought was gun powder. I thought maybe I had been hit by a bomb. By the time I realized what had happened, the boy was already at my door, trying to help me out of the car. Luckily, I was able to get out and move with little problems.
The first thing I did was call my boss. I was on the way to a meeting with her. I knew I wouldn’t make it to the meeting. I then called my husband and my parents. I broke down crying by the time I talked to my parents. By the time I had finished calling them, one of my colleagues was there to help me. I will be forever grateful for her presence. Soon after my husband and my parents were there to make sure I was ok. I realized how blessed I am to have all these people in my life to drop everything to come check on my well-being.
I’m pretty sure one of the coolest cars I’ve ever owned will be totaled. While it’s sad to see it go, it’s just a car. It was a great car and it kept me safe, but it can be replaced…and it already has been…
There is no way I could go without a car, so Saturday I went to Sewell Cadillac and picked up this BEAUTY!! I’m in love. I never really thought there was much of a difference between a luxury car and a regular car. Let me tell you…THERE IS!!! The Cadillac drives like you are floating on air. It’s actually indescribable!!
The experience of buying the car at Sewell was amazing. Their customer service and care is top notch. They truly care about their customer!! I would highly recommend them if you are in the market for a new car. See Scott Dulin because he was awesome!!
I’ve been looking at all these beauty blogs and they take these really pretty pictures of their Colour Pop Lip Liquid in their mouth, so you can see what the color looks like on actual lips. Well, apparently, they either have no flaws or REALLY good cameras with REALLY good filters. Since I only have a camera phone, my picture turned out HORRIBLE. I guess you won’t get the standard lipstick in lips picture from me.
Colour Pop Limbo is the last of my reviews on their ultra matte lip liquids. This is another daring color for me. It’s a bit darker than I would normally wear, but I don’t feel uncomfortable in it, so I think there is a place for this color in my life. I think this color will be perfect for the dress up night on my upcoming Carnival Cruise.
Overall, I highly recommend Colour Pop. They are long lasting and very inexpensive. Definitely worth a try!!
^^Not my lips!!^^
I signed up with Ipsy this month!! I’ve been so excited about getting my first bag. When it finally arrived, I was a little disappointed. I think I need to go update my quiz because I got random items. My two friends got stuff that seemed more like what I would want, so I’m going to have them show me what they put for next time!!
It’s pretty fun getting the items in the mail and it’s only $10, so if you want to sign up, too, use this LINK!!
You may be asking yourself, “What color lipstick should I wear when I go flying in a private plane?” I never thought I’d be asking myself that question, but today I had that very question on my mind as I made plans to fly from Rockwall to Terrell in my brother-in-law’s plane. I decided that Colour Pop Trap was just understated enough not to draw any attention to myself as I climbed aboard this cute little plane!
The flight is about a ten minute flight, which was the perfect amount of time for a first timer like myself. Strangely, no planes were in the air today. When we were about to leave, a man came running out to let us know why. Obama is in town. We had to call in a flight plan to make sure we were safe to fly. Once we got clearance, we made our way to Terrell, but they gave us some wrong code and when we let them know we were about to land, we found out they were about to call in Secret Service because they didn’t know who we were!! Of course, they worked it out and we landed safely. I wonder if my lipstick choice was the actual reason they didn’t have send out the Secret Service!! 😉
My friend turned me on to the Colour Pop ultra lip mattes. Her lipstick was always on point even after a long day. The big secret was Colour Pop!! Since the price was only $6.00 a piece I decided to be a little adventurous when I made my order.
LAX is way darker than I’d normally wear, I kind of feel like a vampire wearing it! I doubt I will get this again, but it sure is fun to play around with on a gloomy Saturday!!
If you are looking for a large palette of eye shadow for a reasonable price, I highly recommend BH Cosmetics. The price was so easy to my wallet, that I figured I would be getting something where each color was the size of a dime. Boy! Was I wrong! Each one of these shadows is about the size of a quarter!! It’s crazy how much you get for your money!!!
Another bonus to purchasing, was that they stay on pretty well! I always use primer before I apply, so I’m not sure if you would get the same results if you don’t use a primer. There are several different color palettes to choose from, so if you’re new to make up like I am, this is a great buy!
I ordered Essential Eyes on Monday and received them on Thursday, so it’s close to instant gratification!!
Recently, I decided to start spray tanning. As I get closer to 50, I figure the spray has to be better for my skin than laying out in the sun all day. I got a membership to Darque Tan for $40 a month and I can go tan any time I want. One of the benefits to spray tanning, is it takes about 5 minutes as opposed to 3 – 4 hours in the sun! I have been going for about 3 weeks and I have a nice tan, I’m just a little worried about turning orange and looking like an Oompa Loompa!
One of the drawbacks to spray tanning is that my nails were starting to look a little yellow. I even put tons of that cream on my nail beds, but I just felt like I was looking a little sick with the off color nails. I decided to combat the yellow, I would start getting fake nails. I went to the salon and they suggested shellac nails. I just got them done, but I’m sure I’m going to like them better than the acrylics. My nails don’t feel as thick and they last about 2 weeks.
With all this self improvement, my sister asked me if I was getting ready for the real housewives of Manor!
