 PRODUCT REVIEW!! Senegence’s Newly Formulated Concealer! 

Alright, so as a women you all the importance of a good concealer. In all the years I’ve been wearing makeup I’ve never found one that I felt did a good job. They seem that they either don’t cover the bags under my eyes, which is a MUST for me. Or they aren’t the right color, they may be too yellow or to orange so they don’t match my skin tone. Or it takes so much product that you feeRead More

Working From Home…,,

Okay so I don’t have a “real” job anymore thanks to my Health. But honestly, what is a “real” job anyway?  Is it real because you have to get dressed, do your hair and look presentable? Is it real because you actually leave the house to do said job? Is it real because you have coworkers that you interact with in person, or because you have an office?  All those things don’t make a job “real.”  They are just thingsRead More

About a month ago I worked with  Gabriella  and her awesome ETSY shop ForeverGreen Healing.  Everything she offers is just that Green. Totally natural.

Two weeks ago I received the AMAZING products in the above picture to try out, from the lovely ladies at the ETSY shop ORGANICskincareByTNS. Almost every product they sent I totally fell in love with.  They sent me their facial moisturizer, vitamin C Serum, Facial Toner, Shampoo/Body wash for her, body butter, magnesium lotion and Muscle Rub.   The only product I wasn’t a huge fan of was the lotion. For me personally it was to oily. I run aRead More

Find beauty within- Do You!!!  Makeup Haul!

Now you might be wondering why I would include cosmetics, beauty products and makeup on this blog. The answer is simple. I feel it’s important that we all feel good about ourselves when our disease processes often make us feel so terrible. And if you are anything like me, most days unless I’m going somewhere, makeup or skin care is the least of my worries.  I recently read somewhere though that changed my way of  thinking. I read that evenRead More
