theBalm NUDE Eyeshadow Palette

I have been pleasantly surprised that I prefer this to the UD palette (got that as a gift recently). This palette has a nice mix of matte, soft pearl and soft metallic shades as well as rich and dark shades. The UD palette did not have enough matte shades for me and had a little too much shimmer since I was looking for something versatile enough to create multiple looks for my conservative job.

The other good thing about this palette is that it includes a rich matte black shadow. I have used it as a liner or smoked it out for a traditonal smokey eye.

The colors are very intense with a good color payoff. They do not fade throughout the day. The brush is ok and I have used it when I didn't have my own brushes. The palette itself is about the same size as the UD palette and it also has a magnetic closure.

There are several shades that are similar to the original UD palette (specifically Buck and darkhorse and Sin) but they do not contain the same amount of shimmer.

Want one of these??? You can get one here on Amazon.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Do you love cookies as much as I do??? Mmmmmm I love them every Kind!!!!
I baked some for my monster in law yesterday because it was her Birthday and she likes M&M's!!
 Look how oooey gooey these cookies are!! I actually used a large ice cream scoop to make these so they only made about 12 each batch... I made these really large so that I could make some Ice cream sammies!!!
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 Bag M&M's

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in M&M's and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

3 in 1 Diamond wedding Set

I ordered this ring in a size 7....
It came in a cute little box and the size is perfect!! I have a wonderfully snug fit ring that is super beautiful!!
This 3 in 1 18k white Gold plated Marquee cut cubic Zirconia cz Sapphire crystal Bridal set is really adorable.
3 rings that are meant to be worn together but if you wanted to wear the center one alone it is beautiful all by itself.
I love how shiny it is in the sunlight... Now looking up closely it does not look really expensive but when you are out and you have it on
it looks amazing.... I love how each side to the center diamond fits perfectly as a 3 piece band set.
The prongs are really help set this piece together and I love how the prongs do not get caught on my clothing like some other rings do.

It is very easy to clean and every time you clean it you will get them shiny Zirconia's to brighten back up.
Although I would not wear this every day, It is beautiful to wear when you are going out and it looks great on special occasions.
After an 8 hour wear the ring did not change colors and it did not leave any discoloration on my finger which is a good sign for a well made piece of costume jewelry.

I wore this to a party Last weekend and I got a lot more compliments then I expected to... I had to tell everyone where to get one of their own.
If you are looking for a really great piece of costume jewelry to add to your collection this is a perfect piece.

ZMODO Security camera

These days everyone needs a security camera.
For a long time I did not think that I needed one....
But we smoke outside and so we have a large ashtray for cigarette butts.
Someone has been coming on our porch and stealing the butts!!
It is super scary because our bedroom window is right next to the front porch where apparently someone is coming up on at night when we go to sleep.
SO I got this amazing camera!!!
Yippee!! I can finally see what goes on in the front of the house!!
This Zmodo WIFI Wireless Smart Security camera is great!!!.
It is really small so you can hide it better than the big ones.

When you get your camera you need to set it up before use.. There is a ZMODO app that you need to download.
Once you get that downloaded on your phone you can set up the camera.Just follow the simple instructions included in the box, which will just have you pair your wireless home internet with the camera. It is very easy, just let your phone search for new devices, that is what I did.
When the option comes up just click it and let it connect to your wifi, you will see this process happening on your cell phone while it is happening.
SUPER EASY!!

Now you are ready... Just hang your camera wherever you want to have the security work. It comes with a little base that attaches to the wall or wherever with just a few screws and then the camera just attaches on there.
Then you are ready.... You can watch from your phone live OR you can choose to get alerts whenever something comes into view of the camera.
I have plugged this inside and outside. The outside is a little trickier because if you get some strong winds or stray animal come by the system will alert you!! Which is funny cause mine actually captured a squirrel looking at the camera!!!
Inside works great as well!! I put mine in the living room and aimed it at the front door so I can see who is coming and going from the back of the house!!

3D Fiber Lashes

You know we all want fuller longer lashes...
At least I know I do!!
hahahahahaa!!!!

I have finally found an excellent product!!!
Have you ever wanted long beautiful lashes without having to get falsies?
Then grab up some of this Fiber Lash.
It is so easy to use!!! It comes with 2 tubes. Step 1 and Step 2
I do one eye at a time. Make sure you use a lash comb to separate the lashes before you start to avoid clumping. You can also use your eyelash curler before you start to go ahead and curl the lashes that you already have. I find that it makes them easier to blend in.
These lashes are buildable so when you start you use the comb and add some lashes, check and see how long they are and if not long enough just reapply. Be very careful that you do not poke yourself in the eye with the brushes!!
MAKE sure that you use step 2 because step 2 makes sure to seal with the transplanting gel.
YOU want to remember to wash your face every night and make sure that you wash off the lashes, you do not want to go to sleep and get one in your eye. Also they get all over the pillow while you are tossing and turning,

Want your own??? You can get your's Amazon.

Dead Sea Mud Mask~ Sephora

About the Product
  • Natural Dead Sea Mud Mask - Say Goodbye to Acne: Pimples, blackheads, and breakouts don't stand a chance against our Dead Sea Mud Mask! As the mask dries, it pulls out the toxins and excess oils present in your skin from poor diet and atmospheric pollution. Your skin will feel clean and refreshed!
  • Incredible Anti-Aging: Get ready to turn back the hands of time! Packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals, mud from the Dead Sea has been referred to as the Fountain of Youth. This mask will improve your skin's elasticity and minimize the appearance of pores for a youthful and flawless glow. And since it includes nourishing oils like Sunflower and Jojoba, it also deeply hydrates the skin, giving you a healthy appearance and reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Melt Away Cellulite: Cellulite is a stubborn problem that no one wants to talk about. But because Dead Sea mud is loaded with circulation-boosting minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium, those unsightly dimples will become a worry of the past! By stimulating blood flow, our mask removes toxins and smoothes away the cottage-cheese look we all want to cure.
  • Spa Quality Luxury: Why spend a fortune on expensive spa treatments when you can get the same results right at home? This incredible mask includes all-natural ingredients like Dead Sea Mud, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil, Aloe Vera Juice, and Jojoba Oil. The result is a soft and creamy mask that's safe for all skin types to use on either the face or body. You deserve a little pampering from the Dead Sea cosmetics.

I'm totally in love with the Dead Sea Mud Mask. First of all I love that this company actually puts the date that it was made on the bottom of the jar and actually tells you that its shelf life is 3 years from that date. In my case it was 06/08/2015 and so it was nice I can tell it was extremely fresh and not going to go bad anytime soon.
I bought this because I wanted something that would give me that little "Spa Treatment" and yet help me reduce my pores. I used this one time and it truly felt so good I didn't want to rinse it off! I actually could FEEL it working on my face and neck.
It is made with all natural ingredients and I like it can be used not only as a pore reducer but also a skin cleanser and moisturizer. I will admit my skin felt totally moisturized after only using this product one time.
I'm in love with this product.
I also saw a major improvement in the size of my pores. This does have an odor to it but it's not bad and it does somehow help me to relax.
This is actually made with Dead Sea Mud,Aloe Vera Juice, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba oil, and Shea butter. The dead sea mud is also loaded with minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium which are known to boost circulation and this is what is supposes to be great for cellulite.
I'm a huge fan of this product and would HIGHLY Recommend it. Try it once and you'll be hooked!

I ordered this ring in a size 7....
It came in a cute little box and the size is perfect!! I have a wonderfully snug fit ring that is super beautiful!!
This 3 in 1 18k white Gold plated Marquee cut cubic Zirconia cz Sapphire crystal Bridal set is really adorable.
3 rings that are meant to be worn together but if you wanted to wear the center one alone it is beautiful all by itself.
I love how shiny it is in the sunlight... Now looking up closely it does not look really expensive but when you are out and you have it on
it looks amazing.... I love how each side to the center diamond fits perfectly as a 3 piece band set.
The prongs are really help set this piece together and I love how the prongs do not get caught on my clothing like some other rings do.

It is very easy to clean and every time you clean it you will get them shiny Zirconia's to brighten back up.
Although I would not wear this every day, It is beautiful to wear when you are going out and it looks great on special occasions.
After an 8 hour wear the ring did not change colors and it did not leave any discoloration on my finger which is a good sign for a well made piece of costume jewelry.

I wore this to a party Last weekend and I got a lot more compliments then I expected to... I had to tell everyone where to get one of their own.
If you are looking for a really great piece of costume jewelry to add to your collection this is a perfect piece.

Bellmain Ramekins

I love making dessert!! What I really like is to make them individually!!
These Ramekins are just perfect for that!!
These ramekins are really adorable.
These ones are 4 oz and they are porcelain, They are very sturdy and I have already dropped one and it did not break so I am super excited about that!! That means I dont have to worry when the grandkids are using them.
These are very versatile. You can use them in the microwave and the oven.. they are dishwasher safe and stack on top of each other so they are very easy to store and do not take up alot of room.
I made Chocolate Melting Cake in mine the other day. I have always wanted to make this cake and never had the ramekins until now.
They were easy to fill and easy to take in and out of the oven. I love how they cook your dishes very easily and they all cook at the same time.
If you do not want to bake with these they are also great for setting out condiments like BBQ sauce and ranch.. You could put these out with taco toppings or even sprinkles for when you are decorating desserts.
Single serve desserts and dishes are all the rage right now and so if you are looking for some ramekins I really hope that you will get these. The brand comes in another size as well if you want the bigger ones.

You can get your set here!!
Let me know what you make with yours!!

Bellmain Grinder

I am such a coffee lover!!
Do you all like Coffee? Can you make it just one day without it??
I dont even think I could make it one hour!! Hahahahahhaa
Coffee is in my veins!! I bleed coffee!!
I like to have my beans fresh ground!!
I am telling you that if you grind your beans fresh everyday it will change your life!!!
Finally!! A coffee grinder that meet's ALL my needs in one!!
I was super excited to get this grinder in the mail!!
This grinder features 17 setting's... Every setting you need to make a wonderful cup of joe!!! You can change your mind as often as you want and only have to use this one grinder!!!!

You can grind 2 to 14 cups of coffee beans in this grinder and the amount you grind depends on the setting you use!!
All you have to do is lift the lid and pour your whole coffee beans inside, place the lid back on and then set your grinder setting!!!
Never move the setting while grinding..
It is so easy to grind, just one button to push and it starts grinding away...It also shuts off automatically which I love because I am bad about remembering to turn things off at 4 am when I am trying to get my cup of coffee!!!

if you have the wrong setting then stop grinding and change it... Also if your beans get stuck, and sometimes they will make sure you stop grinding and then tap the grinder so the beans fall back to the bottom.

I have used several of these settings and each one works great. I love how easy it is to clean. it comes with a little brush that you can brush the leftover grinds out of the grinder.... NEVER put your grinder in water!! I have used different brands of beans for this grinder without washing the machine inbetween and have not had any issues.

I am going to purchase another one of these and use them for dry herbs!! I think it would be amazing to grind your dry herbs up fresh!!!

Want one of these Bellmain Grinders?? You can get one here!!!!

Flameless Candles

What a cute set of candles!!!!
They are actually made of wax and I think that makes them look way more authentic.
Each candle needs 2AA Batteries so make sure you have some on hand for when these cuties come in the mail.
I ordered these candles so that I could have something romantic in the house. These candles totally give that romantic feel.

You will get 5 candles and a remote control with your order. The heights of the candles are 4" , 5" , 6" , 7" and 8".
The nice thing about that is you can rearrange these candles so many ways to make a wonderful centerpiece or a room split with candles.

The first time I used these candles I put them on a tray in the middle of the dining room table when I hosted a dinner party.
These candles are controlled with a remote that allows you to change the way they light up. You can either have the little wicks move by themselves or you can have them move and then flicker at the same time. You can also control how bright or dim the candles are for whatever event you are having.
For the dinner party I had them on low and just flickering. I received so many comments about how adorable they were.

I also placed them in my bedroom before bedtime and used each one in a different spot in the room, I had them all flickering and they just made the room look so inviting and peaceful!!!!
These would be great in the bathroom when you are relaxing in a wonderful bath or even a shower.
You don't have to worry about catching them on fire!!
Just remember that even though they are wax, you cannot burn them!! DO not try and burn them!!!

The remote also comes with settings so that you can schedule how long they burn, when they turn on and when they turn off!!
So easy to use and the settings make it to where you can set them and not have to worry about forgetting to turn them off or even on if you are in a rush!!

Want a set of your own?
