Hometown Epidemic

The zombie apocalypse has reached my hometown and taken over!

Okay so maybe not the zombie's, but isn't the FLU close enough?

   Our school systems have completely shut down the past 2 days because of the amount of staff and students absent because of sickness. My children (luckily) don't get sick often so I was hoping we'd kind of slide right by it this winter. Wednesday my oldest starting feeling bad with a sore throat and Thursday it had progressed to fever, cough, chills, headache and more. So I took her to the Dr yesterday and she tested positive for the flu.

The hardest thing about this is
#1- Trying to keep a 7 year old contained in a room so **FINGERS CROSSED** no one else in the house gets it.

#2- Trying to make a 16 month old understand that sissy can't play because she's sick. So now I'm dealing with a sick child and a pissed off baby, isn't that fun?

#3- Medicines are not meant to taste good...tell that to my daughter. If it doesn't have a good flavor then be prepared for a crying battle. But mommy always wins.

   I really hope she's better in a couple days and that once the flu leaves it doesn't develop into a secondary illness. Christmas isn't going to be very fun for her if she's still not feeling well. I hope you are all staying healthy and feeling fabulous. If you do come down with the flu make sure to stay hydrated, get plenty of rest, and dose up on the

Happy Friday!

E.L.F. Cosmetic Brushes...Fave or Fail?

Admittedly I've been using the same Mary Kay makeup brushes for a while now, along with a few other random brands thrown in. I was just satisfied with my MK brushes because they washed well and have help up for a really long time. But it was definitely time for a whole new set and I had trouble making up my mind on which makeup brushes to try. At first my plan was to snag a few from different companies to see what I liked best, but then E.L.F. Cosmetics had a 50% off sale with free shipping over $35. Naturally I had to give it a shot since I was getting so much bang for my buck. I already knew that I wasn't too fond of their cheaper $1 brushes so I opted for the Studio Line which ranges from $3-$10 and I'd heard great reviews. All together I got 15 brushes (1 didn't make it to the picture) for only $37, definitely a steal! Keep reading to find out if it was worth it. 

 I am extremely pleased with these E.L.F makeup brushes. The only one that I'm not too fond of woul…

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...

1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…
