Younique

younique products

Have you heard of Younique? A wonderfully rich line of beauty products designed to bring out the inner and outer beauty in every woman? It’s the first direct sales company to market and sell almost exclusively through the use of social media (think “virtual parties”). For an introvert like me, a virtual party is like a dream come true!

When I was offered the chance to try out a couple of the Younique products, I had no trouble saying “yes”. I was thrilled when my package of their specialty mascara Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes and eye pigment arrived.

Want to see what it looked like?

The eye pigment was rich and luscious and stayed put when once applied. And the mascara…wow! For someone who has thin lashes, this is a godsend. The process to apply is simple and straightforward. I have to tell you, I kind of love it. Now if we could just do something about those forehead wrinkles (that I’ve had forever…).

Yep! I’m a happy girl! Visit the Younique site or send my friend Sara an email for more info (sclymer77@gmail.com). You won’t regret it.

Party to Pine For :: A Bunny Birthday

bunny party

Do your kids have a special stuffed friend? (Or maybe you’re like me, and you still have one too?) This party’s bunny theme makes me want to throw parties for all three of my kids themed around their special stuffies. Besides, this bunny theme seemed appropriate to share so close to Easter.

The table with all the rabbit food is delightful, isn’t it? I could nibble all day long. And that floral “C” is breathtaking. To see all of the hoppin’ details of this party, go to Annie’s Eats. The details are impeccable.

As Seen On…Burnt End Grilled Cheese by Bake Your Day

bbq-burnt-end-grilled-cheese-29-560x840

Back today with another tasty nibble from Cassie at Bake Your Day. I remember hearing something about it being grilled cheese month (there is seriously a month for everything, isn’t there?!), but you certainly don’t need an excuse to try this mouth watering recipe–especially because it is far from your typical grilled cheese sandwich. Find the recipe on her blog.

What makes this photo, in my humble opinion (other than the food, of course), is the use of the simple kraft bag from the shop. Perfection! Like I’ve been saying, shop products make for great photo props, don’t they?

If you haven’t heard, I’m clearing my shelves of all my party goodies–you can read about it here. Use code STOCKUP35 for 35% off any order in the shop (while supplies last, of course).

just begin

just begin 2

A while back, I did a post on AlwaysVery which included a lists of have to’s, love to’s and want to’s. Calligraphy was one of the things on that list.

I signed up for a SkillShare class to introduce myself to the basics, but I think there are loads of resources out there that anyone could use (see the Antiquaria blog for a whole slew of tutorials). Let me tell you, it’s harder than it looks. For me, at least.

The whole hand-lettering thing just has my attention though, so I’m going to keep at it. Practice makes perfect and all, right? I’ll gladly accept any tips that you might have to offer. In the meantime, I’m proud of myself for tackling something on my “want to” list.

You really do have to start somewhere. So just begin.
