And Another Year Goes Bye

Chocolate Cake made by the men in my life

Cake,Love,and Happiness...What more could a girl want:)

Flowers for Me???

I'm not really 1 years old!!



Beautiful

 Wow, I can't believe how fast another year has passed. Today I spent it with the ones that matter the most. Frank and Alex made me a delicious birthday cake. I thought they forgot that I asked them to make me one last week. I was so happy when they asked if they could still bake it for me this morning. I'm a simple kind of girl. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Frank asked me where I wanted to go for breakfast, honestly I just wanted some frosted flakes and toast. He went to work for a few hours so me and Alex headed out to Hobby Lobby and Target. A YouTube friend of mine, ShaySpeaks, told me about Target having beauty products on sale. I picked up 2 Sally Hansen polishes,1 Loreal lip gloss, 1 toothpaste, and an activity book for $10.00. I posted a video on my channel if you want to check it out. For dinner, we went to Chili's. My sister in law came over with these beautiful roses and enjoyed cake with us. As I am writing this post, its still 20 minutes until the day is over. There is one person who has not called me or text me or emailed me. I am hoping she does. If she doesn't, I think I will be OK but kind of sad. I thank God for these 34 years He has blessed me with and praying to have many more so I can see my future grand babies.

The Lashes I Always Wanted!


No Mascara=Skinny Volumenless lashes

$8.79 at CVS-don't forget to check for $1.00 coupons

2 Coats of Revlon Growth Luscious Plumping Mascara
This is the video I posted today on my YouTube channel. I have had this mascara for about a week. I bought it because I had a coupon for $1.00 plus another $4.00 of with CVS ECB's for that mascara. I usually don't buy mascaras with such thick wands. I always get it all over my eyelids. Today I decided to take my time to apply it. I never thought my eyelashes could look this pretty. I applied 2 coats. I am very pleased with my purchase. I'm not sure if this comes in waterproof but it is opthomalogical ( I'm pretty sure I misspelled that word!!) tested. I will definitely purchase this again.

Just Clayin' Around





 Lately I have been looking at YouTube video of charm making using polymer clay. Some of my favorites are SoCraftastic,PaperPastels,GentlemanBunny. SoCraftastic's channel is the one who really got me curious though. I just love her creativity and her detailed tutorials. So I ordered this book called The Incredible Book of Clay. The book cost about $20.00. Today was a rainy day and my husband stayed home from work. Alex and him hung around together so I finally had the chance to use the clay. This was my first time using clay. It gives your hand quite a workout.I decided to make a Hello Kitty key chain. After I finished making and baking it, I did not realize how much of my mistakes would show up. Their was alot of lint visible and little marks that I did not smooth out. After they cooled off, I applied a thin coat of glitter nail polish. After that dried, I applied a thin coat of ModPodge to give it a little shine.I know Sculpy has a gloss that you can apply, but that was all I had on hand. I may purchase it, because I have a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby. I really like the results. I will definitely keep practicing.


Last night I was able to do this pattern on my nails using Bundle Monster Plate 221. I applied a beige color as my base coat then sponged Jaguar by Pure Ice over it in little splotches. I used the Konad Speciall color in black to stamp on the image. After that dried, I used a dotting tool to color in some dark brown spots on the stamped image. I will keep this design on for a few more days.Thanks for stopping by.

Frisky meets Oxidized Aqua Crackle Metal

Orly-Frisky


Crackle Glaze Metals-Oxidized Aqua


Last Friday I headed to Sally's Beauty Supply. They sent me a $10.00 off of $20.00 coupon. I really wanted some nail polish. They had a few of the new China Glaze  Crackle Glaze Metal polishes. The only one that I liked was this green one. The name of it is Oxidized Aqua. I eneded up getting 2 China glaze polishes. When you purchased 2 they gave you a free fast dry nail polish. They did not have any more in stock so they gave me a rain check. I also picked up the Orly  Frisky nail polish. It such a pretty color. I applied 2 coats of it. After it dried, I then applied the crackle polish. I applied it going in different directions instead of the usual base to tip application. I applied it going sideways and angled.  It gives each nail a different look. I really like this combination alot.



OPI-Shatter- Dried up:(
The pictures here is now my OPI shatter nail polish looks like now. I was going to put it on a few days ago and saw this. I was so upset. I store all my polishes standing straight. They are not near a window. The polish has dried up completely. I didn't use it very much, so I don't know if that is the reason why it looks like this now. This was a Mothers Day gift from my baby, so it will stay with me forever regardless of what it looks like. Has this happened to any of yall's Shatter polish?
Thanks for stopping by.

June Favorites

 You can buy this big bottle of Olay at Walmart for about $8.oo. It leaves your skin so soft and clean smelling. It reminds me of Country Chic from Bath and Body Works. This by far is my most favorite lotion ever.

 Last month my face started breaking out really bad. In my twenty's, I used to get really big pimples on my cheek. I had a habit of popping them and they would leave a really dark blemish mark on my face. I was getting really upset that I started to get them again. I was even getting them on my neck:( I was using Clean and Clear Foaming Face wash,but that did not seem to help.  I saw this Garnier face wash on sale at Walgreen's and I also had a coupon. I ended up getting both the cleanser and moisturizer for about $5.oo.  This helped clear out my pimples so fast. I was amazed. I really love the brush head. It feels really good on your face. The bristles are not rough or stiff. It really feels good on your face. It leaves your face feeling clean. One thing I will mention though, is that it does not remove eye makeup very well. It will also leave the brush head a little black if you use it on your eyes. If you use eye makeup remover before you wash your face them you should have no problems. Keep your eye out for sales at CVS or Walgreens and coupons in your Sunday newspaper. I've already got 2 more bottle stocked up.
 This is an excellent moisturizer. I love it because it has sunscreen. It gives your face a nice fresh scent. It's not oily. I will definitely continue to use this product.
 I bought these at Ross for $2.99. For some reason, I thought this was by Garnier also, but it is not.The green packaging really got me! They still work really good. I love the way they smell. They leave your face feeling clean and smooth no matter how much makeup you have. It takes off eye makeup really well too. I also have a few back stocked too. I try to buy one every time I get a chance to go to Ross. If you shop at Ross you know you have to buy what you see because the next time you visit it will not be there any more.
 I bought this Biore face wash because I had a coupon for free blackhead strips and because it was on sale. I bought this about 2 weeks ago. I use this to wash my face in the morning and use the Garnier at night in the shower. This face wash really wakes you up in the morning. Your face feels refreshed and clean and awake. For some reason, when I saw the word "ice" on the bottle, I thought it was going to have little crystals in the cleanser but it does not. Its just a clear cleansing face wash. I will definitely repurchase.

 This is my new straightener. I posted about it a few blogs ago. I love the way it leaves my hair. It really made my hair look board straight and shiny when my hair was longer. My hair is super short now but I still use it to straighten out my hair when I wake in the morning.
I also posted about this in a recent post. This is the Lysol Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner. It comes two in a pack for about $2.47 at Target. I'm constantly cleaning the toilet bowls so I cant say how good it cleans it but it really does deodorize your restroom. Especially around the toilet bowl area. I buy the blue ones. I believe its the Mountain Fresh scent. They last a long time too. I would say about 6 weeks.


So this was my June favorites. I don't normally buy alot  of stuff monthly to make a favorites post every month. I always put myself in the back burner and buy for my son before I buy for myself. I'm pretty sure alot of you can relate. Well thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great 4th of July weekend. Be safe and be Blessed!!
