Things about Me

My Photo

Hi!
I'm Lisa, a stay at home mother of 2 beautiful girls. They keep me on my toes and I learn something new from them everyday. I'm also proud to say I have an amazing man. He has done nothing but be supportive and accepts me for who I am. He's been a great father figure to both my girls.
I'm attempting to write more about products I love, be it make up, clothing, food etc.  I've been doing freebies and surveys off and on and I've recently decided to be more active. Hopefully I can use this site to share what I've done. I'm also interested in giveaways so this is going to also be a new adventure for me.
I love to dabble in make up, play around with hair styles etc. I've lost a lil over 100 lbs in the last year. It's still a work in progress. After all, the weight didn't just pile on over night. I recently started to attempt to follow fashion. There are lots of cute ideas out there and many styles I would love to attempt.

I'm back

Hi all, sorry I have been M.I.A for so long.
My family was pretty sick over the holidays and of course we were pretty busy as well.
I"ll be posting more this week and hopefully posting more in general.

I've got a few reviews to do for @BzzAgent, I am also going to be hosting a Sodastream party courtesy of +House Party Fun .


I'm also hoping to post a bit more about my polish etc. My collection is slowly growing and would love to add to it.

Take care and happy posting.

Monday Mani (day late) 12/03/2012

 Hi all :)

This is my mani for Monday, December 03 2012.

I decided to go with Julep all the way from clear basecoat, 2 coats of Donna followed with some accent dots of Barbara and a finish of Juleps Matte Top Coat.


If you would like me to review or post about your polish, you can contact me through my blog.
Always up for something new :)

Monday Mani

Since I have been loving painting my nails, thought I would do a Monday Mani.
This one is courtesy of Essies Recessionista and Nailtini Millionaire.
I decided to do an accent nail with the Nailtini Millionaire. I think it looks pretty good.

Nail Mail

I am in a polish group on Facebook that swaps Julep Polish and some other 3-free brands as well.

This was my nail mail for today.
I've really fallen for Brooke. She is a beautiful glittery sheer purple. I use her as a top coat on some of my darker shades.
Here is an example of my mani below. Sorry about my sloppy manicure. Forgot to clean those cuticles up.
These are Julep Brooke and Gayle

My swap mail Kleancolor Sugar Coat Julep Morgan, Brooke, Leslie and Vanessa. Also a sample of Julep lotion and some nail applique.

influenster revamp

I love word of mouth companies.
I've been a member of http://www.influenster.com/for several months now and I've had the pleasure of taking part in 3 boxes so far.
It used to be pretty easy in my opinion to get qualified for boxes. Now, they are making you work harder and getting your influence out there. I think it's great. The more active, the better.

They are now doing a sort of point system. If you follow and meet certain criteria you get better chances of awesome themed boxes to review.

Here are a few of the boxes I've gotten to do.

Latelies

I haven't been writing like I should.
Both my girls are back in school. They have been back about a week now and both seem to enjoy it greatly.
I have one daughter who is enjoying her first year of Kindergarten and my oldest daughter is now a 7th grader. She's loving it. She seems to be wanting to do better than last year.
My bf is paying for grades. He's got a pretty great deal, I'm not sure why she didn't try harder last year.

My health is still the same. Nobody seems to know and the one doctor I am seeing now is "certain" that I have i.b.s. I don't agree with him of course but who I am to argue with a doctor.
I also spoke with him about the pelvic pain I get as well so he ordered an ultrasound for that which I had Monday, yesterday. It seemed to take a while. She didn't say much and I wasn't really sure if I could ask her questions about what she saw, if anything. I hope something gets figured out. Whatever is going on with me is taking a toll on me.

I've got a BzzAgent review or two to post here soon. I also have another Julep post as well. Hopefully I can get them up tonight. I've got swatches for a couple eye shadows I own as well.

Thanks for reading tonight.

Nail fun with Julep, Harley, Piper and Susie.

So I've been wanting to play with my new Julep colors since I won a golden box earlier this month.
It's not the greatest, I am still new to this nail, beauty, hair thing. It's fun in the process of learning though.
Hopefully I will get the supplies I ordered soon. I just received my nail tape and now I'm just waiting on the dotting wands, or whatever you may call them.
I attempted dots on mine with the really cheap toothpicks, for some reason we don't have "normal" toothpicks in our house.
Any who here is a lil snapshot of what I did.
Next time I hope the dots are more uniform, it does take practice for anything.

I first used Julep Base-coat then allowed to dry about 10 minutes.
I then used some tape to tape off the tips of my nails.
I used "Harley" for the bottom and "Piper" for the tips.
"Susie" was used for the dots.
I almost think it would have been great with out the dots.

I'm addicted already and I've been a Maven for a few months.



If you do want to give Julep a try you can click my link and join. It's a penny to start and you can cancel at anytime. Julep Maven use the code "mavenintro" or "penny".


This post is 100% my own opinion. I pay for my own Julep, they are in no way sponsoring this post.
