Facial Day

Hi Girlfriends

I'm going to share a little secret with you...just between us girls.

I haven't been taking the time to take care of my skin lately and it is beginning to really showing. I have a birthday coming up in a few days and just maybe that is why I have been staring in the mirror a little longer. I went to the Walgreen's and did some shopping. I found this product....

The facial wash is called ...

Yes To Tomatoes

Trouble-free Facial Wash combines Organic Tomatoes, Watermelon, Rosemary and Dead Sea Minerals

The lable reads....

We know it's hard to keep your skin balanced and clear.

That's why our Trouble-free Facial contains organic watermelon extract to remove excess oils and other impurities. We've added purifying Dead Sea Minerals and powerful anti-oxidant Lycopene form organic tomatoes to maintain your skin's pH balance while it gently cleanses and refreshes your skin. Now you're ready to show off to the world!

This is me before..

I look cross eyed in this picture and OMG the next thing I need to do is color!!

Here we go.... Step one Apply Trouble-free Facial Wash to your wet face, massaging gently in circular motion avoiding the eyes

Rinse off with lukewarm water. See how fresh you feel.
This is me after the Facial Wash... No beg change... Just cleaner


Time for the Mask

This is the fun part

Yes To Carrots

The lable reads...

Exfoliating and Soothing Mask

Do you know people who always eat their veggies? Love them or hate them, they'll have great skin. Cheat a bit with C the Difference Exfoliating Mask, C the Difference tones, revitalizes and purifies the skin with out a smoothie maker in sight. C the Difference firms and tightens the tissues leaving a velvety luster and a bright complexion. The Mud's grainy texture improves the skin's moisture retention to provide a revitalized appearance.

Apply a thin layer of mask to cleansed face, using a circular motion. Thoroughly cover your face, avoiding eyes and mouth. Allow to penetrate and dry. Remove after 5 minutes, using a damp wash cloth. Splash with cool water and pat dry. Check your skin and see how pretty it looks !

OKay OKay

A girl needs to learn how to laugh at herself now and then.

Are you laughing at me???

OKay seriously now I only have 2 more minutes to go


MY face feels soft and clean...

I think the age spots are alittle lighter

Time for some make up!!!

Will thats enough fun for now... I hope you get a chance to treat yourself to a facial this week end.

Keep Smileing

I Feel Pretty

I came across Deb’s place, you can find her at
She has a post “ I Feel Pretty” …
I thought it was a cute post about her relationship
with make up. I love make up sooo here is
My Love Affair with make up.
I’m not the kind of lady that can’t leave the house
with out my make on. I don’t wear it if I’m staying home.
You may not believe this after seeing
how much make up I have.
I grow up in a house with a Mom that truly
believed in taking care of her skin…
and she taught me and my two sisters very early…
Our bathroom was full of all kinds of girly things.
Masks, Make up of every color, lotions, treatments,
and don’t get me started on the hair products.
Let me just tell you that there are four of us girls
including my Mom and three of us are Cosmetologists.
Our bathroom was a play ground. LOL
My make up routine starts with a clean face and moisturizer.
I use Aloette skin care…believe me
I have used hundreds of brands and this one is my favorite.
I think starting with a good skin care line is key
to making your make up look its best.
I love the glominerals foundation!!
Next a little blush, lipstick, natural colored eye shadow,
eyeliner and mascara.
One of my favorite things in my make up case is
SONIA KASHUK eyebrow liner.
I get it form Target and I just can’t finish my make up with out it.

Draw # 1

A bit of every thing

Draw #2

I travel with this little school box

I have lipstick every where in the house.

Guess what? .... this is my week end house... you wouldn't believe my bathroom at home... and like I said I only wear make up about 4 days a week. LOL

Whats in you make up bag?
