Just a silly picture of us rolling our tongues, something funny we share together that knowone else in the family can't do!!

This is a picture of my niece, from 2 or 3 yrs ago, we went to Boston for the day and it was a hot one, there was this cool little waterfall not pictured that she was playing in, I so remember those days when I would go into town with my Nana, they were the best days ever, we would go places that mom never toke us too. I really love doing family things with her and to give her things that she will take with her for the rest of her life. Like this day trip, till this day she still talks about it off an on.

Mac Libery Of London Collection

the above eyeshadow is Birds and Berries, out of all the eyeshadow in the collection this one got my eyes big time

Beauty Powder - Shell Pearl, I love wearing this alone or on top of my blush it has a nice shimmer to it which I highlights the cheek area nicely
if your a collector for Mac you will love the packaging on this one, it's really pretty and springy I will say, there was one more item I wanted a lipstick but there out of it in the store and on line I'm keeping my fingers crossed to getting a hold of it..

Lush Easter Products

On March 15th Lush came out with there Easter products, I was very excited to see what they were and smell them for sure!! they came out with a little yellow bunny( toward the left bottom of the picture) it's called honey bunny which smells just like honeybee it cost $3.95 which is smaller then the bath bomb so if you do like honeybee then this is a good deal, (next above that towards the right) is Hippie Chick which is a chicken bath bomb it smells amazing like grapefruit, citrus something that Lush doesn't have present in the stores and I LOVE THIS !!! cost is $5.95 (above that in pink) You have the Candy Fluffy Egg, if you love or like sweet smells then this one is for you, it smells like candy fluff the body powder they have with a mix or godmother soap and fairy godmother, to me it's too sweet but for someone else with a sweet tooth they will love, cost $6.95. The big yellow egg is honeybee and that's a big bath bomb you can get about 4 -6 baths I would say off of that big guy it also comes with Ma bar bubble bar and Honey I wash the kids soap which is placed inside half of the bath bomb, this is a great deal I think $24.95 because if you think about it honeybee bath bomb goes for $6.25 4 of those would be $25.00 alone and you get 2 other things along with that great deal. you can see the read up about Dorothy the bubble bar below

Lush Bubble Bar Dorothy

Lush just came out with a new bubble bar, if you like Figs and leave soap from them your will Love this bubble bar Smells just LIKE IT. They say on there site that it's a smell of ylang and sweet fig, quote from site will make you want to go skipping off to see the wizard haha. Not to sure why they come out with this or if it was just for fun anyway it is a nice smell and the color of the water looks just like that pretty blue bar . I for one love there bubble bars they make your skin feel so softed plus soo yummy !!!

Nars Sheer Matt foundation

I was on the hunt for a new foundation, I have heard so many good things about Nars sheer glow that I wanted to get it but after reading on their site sheer glow is for people that have Dry skin which I don't have. I went to my nearest Nordstrom to have a MUA apply to my skin and help me pick the right color for me, she put about 3 to 4 different shades on me until she found the right one Light03 Gobi. The color is so perfect for my skin color I was very please with her help over all, I also did ask her if I could use sheer glow she then asked if I had dry skin which again I don't,( combo skin is what I have) she said sheer matt is the best bet for me. The next day I did my foundation an I did notice that it does streak a little (I did apply with my fingers as the directions had said to) then I ended up spraying a little Fix Plus by Mac on my face an wow it helped out so much, it covered nicely and looked so good on I was very please with this foundation over all. I did notice by the end of the day that my skin wasn't so shiny as it has been in the past so that was Great!! I also liked how it evened out my skin tone as well plus oh I forgot to tell you that just cause it called sheer matt it didn't make my skin look so matt after all, it did have a sheen to it which was nice cause I Hate that Matt look on my skin since I do hav a little bit of older skin and that Matt look doesn't look so nice on older skin I think :) the price for this foundation is a little on the higher side over I do think it worth the money $42.00

Magnet punch for depotting Mac eye shadows

The other night I was depotting my Mac eye shadows that came in the containers, (by the way I real hate depotting can I tell you that much I just about broke not 1 but 2 eye shadows what a pain in the butt this is) so I was at this craft store called AC Moore an got a sheet of magnet an I was wondering how the hell am I going to cut them into circles( plus what size) then I got an idea(light bub went off LOL) that my mother does all different kinds of crafts so I came across this punching tool she had from Stamping Up, for those who don't know what that is it's where you make cards, scrap books and other crafts like that, so she had a punch stamp in 3/4 that fit perfect on the back of the eye shadows so I punched out the whole sheet as you can see from the picture to the side. I'm sure you can find a punch like this at any craft store, it was soo much earier then cutting out circle. Just had to share my craftyed find or idea to you all so that you can look into something like this as well
