I am a huge family girl, but I have had a long standing relationship with cosmetics and skincare for almost 30 years now. Yes,I do believe that when I was an infant I cried if I did not get the correct booty powder. My animals are my babies and my husband and step daughter are my life. My husband said that if I talk to him about makeup\skincare\cosmetics anymore then we are going to have to get divorced. Thus I am branching out and looking to find my online family lol. I am self employeed and this gives me much time to devote to my passion of helping people. My current mission is to help cancer patients with "Make me Beautiful" days. I am a big believer that if you look good then you feel good. I am an ex smoker so I prob go over board on skincare trying to reverse the damange, but we will see. And that is about all I can think of now, I will prob update as I go.

|My Beauty Secret:||
Ok, so one of my secrets is that I brush my lips. I've never found anything that works as well to get all the little dead skin cells off as my sonicare toothbrush.
I have 2. A morning and a night. They might scare you, one is 9 steps the other is 14. If you would really like to know, email me and I will share!
|My Horror Story:||
OMG, there was a mask by garnier that my daughter told me I had to try. I have very sensitive skin, but since I had not had any troubles in the past few months I decided to give it a go. BAD IDEA. 90 seconds into the mask my skin started warming up, and then came the fire. I washed it off as quick as I could but my face was more red than the Gatorade I was drinking. We even tried putting milk on my face to sooth it, but nothing would work except time.
|My Celebrity Look-a-like:||
I'm not sure I have one. I got told once that I looked like a flight attendant in the movie "Catch me if you can" does that count?
Ok So let me start by saying that my husband is 26 years older than me and looks maybe 4 years older than me due to the fact that he has been taking blue\green algae for 15+ years. I am amazed that it has just now been worked into skin care. The brand is called Algenist and it is HEAVEN!! I am 29 and have very oily,sensitive, acne prone skin and almost EVERYTHING has some sort of reaction on my face. I was shaking when I went into Sephora to get samples of this wonder serum ,moisturizer, and eye cream. I got home and washed my face and went to work. My skin felt like silk!! I swear I even saw a glow, but the end all be al
Ok so this is kind of a two in one - but since they are both lip balm I chose to keep as 1 post. Have I mentioned that I love lip balm, really, I have even checked out the LBA (lip balm anonymous) in my local area. So here are my must have will never be with out at least 2 new unused ones in the house at all times.1. Jack Black - Natural Mint - I can close my eyes and it's just like I'm putting on La Mer. But I think this one is better :)2. Buxom Lip Plumping Balm in Portofino - it's the perfect color, the taste is great (not my usual mint) and even somewhat addictive. I love it, love it, love it. I seriously can't go anywhere without this. I've even been known to put it in my bra at times...hehe
Ok so I have crackly dry hands. I love Korres body butter for my feet, but it is a little to greasy for my hands. I use my laptop, my phone, and most importantly I touch my face alot!! I just found the Body Shop body butter a few weeks ago at Sephora. I had like 1000 VIB points and needed to do some cashing in. I found this is the mini section right next to the checkout and at $5.00 this was in my willing to try price range. No kidding, I went back the next day and got 3 more! The lotion last at least 3-4 hours before I have to reapply and it's not greasy at all! It last forever too. The travel 1.69oz lasted me 18 days. Must Must Must have for me.
