Y’all know how I love my bronze shadows, pigments, liners…pretty much every makeup product that is a bronze color belongs in my makeup drawer and on my face!  When I saw the Maybelline Color Tattoo Pure Pigment in Breaking Bronze…OH. MY.  I had to have it!!  So in my cart it went, and the next day immediately onto my eye lids for a very simple, very smoky makeup look!  Check out the video below to see how I created this makeup look!

Be sure to check out the details in the description box to find out how you can get all of the products I used in the makeup tutorial!  

What is your favorite shadow color to wear?

High Five for Friday


1.  Going to the fair can only mean one thing.  Footlong Corndogs…


2.  And strawberry swirl soft serve.  Yum!


3.  In love with these boots and leggings right now!


4.  These two.  Love them to pieces!


5.  I couldn’t agree more.  Sometimes feeling helpless is all there is.  Just remember to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move forward.

I’m linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!

A Girl and her Baby


I fear that there will come a day when this little frog AKA “Baby” no longer makes a cameo appearance in every single picture little miss is in.  Baby is also known as Tadbit which originally was purchased for our little man when he was a baby and he could’ve cared less about it.  So I save it thinking that maybe our next baby would love it.

Little did I know Tadbit would become our little girls very first BFF.

This little guy has been run through the ringer a few times too many.  So much so we had to search high and low for another one just in case the original fell apart.  The company that created this little lifesaver no longer makes this version.  Super sad!  Luckily thanks to the Gods, we were able to find ONE.  In Japan nonetheless!  It took us 6 months to get him!  

She now has 2 babies.  Both are well loved.  Both have been stitched back up by a wonderful Nana.  Both have lost their necktie ribbons.  Both have given my girl comfort in her times of need.  Both have been tucked into bed with her.  Both are constantly dragged around behind her.  And we never leave home without at least one of them.

Tadbit, I had no idea how much of a part you would play in our lives.  I am thankful that you are a shining light in my daughters life.

First day of Autumn!

This day is ridiculously exciting for me!  The first day of Autumn means SO many great things.  
Cooler/Colder weather.
Boot weather.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes…pretty much everything Pumpkin.
Spicy scented candles.
Comfort foods.
Much needed family get togethers.
And most of all, time to relax and cuddle up with my family.  That’s pretty much the best!

What are some of your favorite parts about the Fall?

Fall Beauty Secrets and a GIVEAWAY!

I have undergone countless changes in the condition of my skin.  Every single time theres and influx of hormones, everything changes.  I’ve dealt with the good, the bad, and definitely the ugly.  Up until 4 months ago I battled severely dry skin, rosacea, and extreme sensitivity to pretty much everything…I mean everything.  Nothing I did helped.  If anything, on occasion, it made things worse.
Fall is officially upon us (well, technically tomorrow is the first day of Autumn), and this means my skin will be at its driest, and most vulnerable.  I have to really amp up my skincare to help protect my skin from the harsh weather changes which means I get to really pamper myself!  

give_it_a_glow1In four simple steps my skin will be refreshed, renewed, silky smooth, my lips will be plumped and ready, and the dryness will disappear!  In the photo above you will see three products, and one tool.  Let me break down what each product/tool is, and how they can benefit you!

  • Micro-Dermabrasion Paste – a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote maximum gentle exfoliation. Use intermittently to enhance cell turnover and improve skin tone and texture. Lucky Magazine reports that it smoothes away rough spots!  Massage directly onto skin of face or body for 30 – 60 seconds; do not wet skin before use. For gentler exfoliation, use on damp skin and slowly add water to lessen the intensity of the exfoliation. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Use 1-3 times per week in place of a cleanser.  Despite the fact that I have battled sensitive skin, this doesn’t cause any issue for me, and doesn’t leave my skin feeling like it’s on fire from the exfoliation.  I even like to use this on my body while showering for a fantastic exfoliation.  No more rough patches!  LOVE it!!
  • Night Renewing Serum – these awesome blue capsules contain a potent, proprietary blend of peptides and retinol to visibly improve skin texture and firmness and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Retinol, favored by dermatologists for decades, improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores. Patented time-release technology increases skin’s receptivity throughout the night while reducing potential irritancy. Recognized by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine as an Editors’ Choice!  Each container contains 60 capsules – one for everyday use!  Every evening, after cleansing and toning your skin, open capsule and apply serum over the entire face, avoiding eye area. Follow with nighttime moisturizer.  It’s not necessary to go through an entire regimen to get great results out of these, however, it will prolong the results as well as give you faster and more noticeable positive changes in your skin.  Below is a photo of a fellow Consultants Mother in Law who began using the Night Renewing Serum coupled with the AMP MD Roller (that tool is next).
    night_renewing_serum_resultsInsanely amazing results, right?!?!  I still can’t get over this transformation!  
  • AMP MD Roller System – take a firm position on aging skin with our patent-pending REDEFINE AMP MD™ System, which includes the noninvasive AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller and REDEFINE Night Renewing Serum. The AMP MD System utilizes micro-exfoliation roller technology for visibly advanced skin-firming benefits. Based on our clinical studies of our REDEFINE Regimen and the AMP MD System, smoother, softer skin can be experienced after just ONE use! With continued use, the AMP MD System is clinically proven to help skin appear firmer and make lines and wrinkles less noticeable for a more luminous and refined appearance.  This is the BEST spent minute in any skincare regime ever!  By rolling the AMP MD over your skin for one minute, and massaging the Night Renewing Serum into your face and neck, your skin will be luminous, softer, and the appearance of wrinkles will be FAR less!  
  • Lip Renewing Serum – when it comes to lips, time and the environment take their toll in a profound way. The smooth, naturally full, defined lips that nature gives us will, over time, become thinner, flatter, less rosy and more lined. Reclaim or maintain the lips of youth with REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum. Each peptide and antioxidant-rich capsule helps lips retain natural moisturizing factors, smoothes lip texture and reduces the appearance of lip wrinkles. Each container has 60 capsules inside it, however, because these little grey pods are SO potent, you can get 2-3 uses out of EACH capsule!!  My lips have never been so soft and plump.  SO worth it!!

With these three super easy products and this amazing tool, your skin will be completely changed.  Keep in mind, the tool is NOT necessary.  It will amp up your results (hence the name of the tool lol) to give you better and faster results.  You will feel like a completely new person, and will never look back once you’ve started using these award winning products!  How would you like to get your hands on one or ALL of these???
