Back on the Blog Train!

Hey y’all!

I am super sorry about being gone for so long. Actually, I am kinda happy that I just came to my blog and it let me right in. I have been trying to sign in for months and it would not let me in. I a actually had a review for a company and could not post because I could not get in no matter what I tried.

Soooooo much is different now since the last time I have been on here. I am still happily married with our never ending growing children. Do they ever stop growing?? We are living back in my hometown  in Louisiana. I currently work full time at Starbucks as a Shift supervisor/ Coffee Master for 4 years now. Time surely flies by quickly!

So, this blog will kinda stay the same but kinda change. I will still post DIYs, my own reviews of things I like, topics that catch my attention, but I feel the need to start blogging about my faith. I really feel that God/Yah (his true Hebrew name) is laying things on my heart to share. I know this topic can get a little heated and this is not my intention. I am always open for discussion because we are human and we can ALL make mistakes, right?! No negative comments will be allowed.

I’m trying to learn how to balance my home life, full time work, my business with Young Living, and most importantly my faith. It seems there is never enough hours in the days of this crazy life.


I will mix in the fun things that I like to do including  my love affair with my Young Living essential oils and Yahs words given to me, testimonies, scriptures,  music that touches my soul, and some of my dreams. (Yeah, they can get crazy and downright scary! Be forewarned!)
I have really been impressed with some things on my heart lately that I hate just spamming my Facebook feed up when I want to share. A blog is a perfect way to follow if you want to see what I post and it gives me a better platform to actually go in depth to what I am trying to share.

I cannot express how excited I am to finally be able to get back on this thing. About time!

So, Let the fun begin!!

DIY Project-Spruce Up Old Treasures!

Have old items that you love the shape but not the color? Well, I have this DIY that I did on an older mirror that was still in good shape, just wanted a more modern color.. You can find lots of items through flea markets, Goodwill, etc and spruce them up with just a little spray paint!

All you need is the item you want to fix up, spray paint in your choice, gloves, newspaper (or something to cover areas you dont want painted, painters tape, and a mask for your face.

Here is my mirror before(prepped and ready for paint of course):
I didnt sand it because I bought the Krylon Paint that should be good for any surface and figured I really didnt have anything to lose but a few bucks for paint.



Here is the after, with a few coats of paint:







I used Krylon Special Purpose Metallics Spray paint in Bright Silver. I think it came out really well and love my new mirror! So, find something to brighten up and be daring! Spray paint comes in almost any color you can imagine and many different textures.. I would love to see your DIY projects also! Please share...

Love and Spray Paint!

Are you "Supreme"??














Just wanted to share with yall my Supreme "Kandee Johnson" inspired necklace that I have been waiting to purchase. This necklace was originally made for Kandee as a gift. Her necklace was made from the real original logo of a Cutlass Supreme car. These are a replica of that same necklace with all of the appropriate measurements.
I finally awarded myself with one for doing so well in my first month of Scentsy. I received my necklace in the mail, in a box and when I opened it up it was so much prettier than I thought it would be. I knew it was going to be beautiful but it exceedes my expectations. It is made out of Rhodium but the Sterling Silver necklace is available for a bit more pricier for a limited time only, if it is still available to order. Missy with Pinky Loco is soo friendly and was very helpful through the order process which was short and sweet.

I opened the box up and touched it for the first time and realized it is much sturdier than expected. Heavy duty and just plain stunning!
Definately glad I purchased this one and maybe one day I would love
to give one of these beautiful Mama Jammas away!
Hoping my business takes off so I can do this for my very special friends
that support me soo much. I really am so glad to have all of you as my
followers and friends.

Please stay tuned for more reviews, hauls, giveaways, etc~

I also have a giveaway going on right now on my youtube channel!

If you would like to purchase your very own "Supreme" necklace,
You can do so here:

Heading to bed now and hope to get a few more blogs up soon!
Thanks for reading!

Great Prices on NYX Cosmetics at WWW.PorkDaisy.com

First off, I would like to thank PorkDaisy.com for sending this review to me. This is a super generous amount of products to review. I was very impressed with the fast shipping and great packaging of their products.

I will start with the HD primer.

It came in nice packaging along with everything else and came out really easily. You do have to be careful with this one because a little goes a long way and it does pump a good bit out in one pump, so go easy on it. It glides on fast and smooth and gets your skin revved up and ready for your makeup. It comes in 1 universal color and the bottle is 1.16 oz (33g).

The HD Foundation in HDF01 Nude..
This color matches my fair skin tone really well! I was quite surprised how porcelain it made my skin look. My skin was soft and smooth and did not look cakey. I have used Clinque foundation for years and the color is great but I always did find that it would cling to blemishes and dry spots more. This one did not. I dont know if the primer helped with that or if the foundation is just that great. I do have a few spots that I wish it would cover a little more but the whole point of a HD foundation is to have more flawless looking skin that looks like your natural skin and not "makeup". This one I give 2 thumbs up! The bottle is 1.26oz or 36g.

Next is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in color smlc08 San Paulo

This is such a beautiful color! To be honest I didnt quite know what this was going to be but I really am impressed with it. I thought it would be like other glosses. Its not a gloss though, and its not lipstick, it is a lipstick cream that goes on smooth and silky and looks soft matte. It is really silky to the touch and glides on well. Not clumpy at all. It smells like Vanilla cake batter. Does not really have a taste but I have to commend this one as well! Tube does not list the amount inside.

Then the Fly with me Mascara in Jet Black
This mascara is really great. Its a dark black color and does great applying your mascara. The wand is like one I have never seen before but whatever it is, it works! lengthens and seperates. Not the most dramatic mascara but great for everyday wear! The tube is 8g or 0.28oz

And last but not least, the fabulous Nude on Nude Eyeshadow and Lip Color Palette!




This palette has 20 deliciously gorgeous eyeshadows and 10 perfectly chosen lip colors for Nude on Nude look! It also comes with a double sided eyeshadow wand and a double sided lip color brush applicator.The colors are nicely pigmented and are soo beautiful! Many different choices for a more nude look to a more dramatic evening look. Some of the colors were a little crooked in the packaging but that does not bother me, they are all still there and intact. Nice shimmery colors and more matte toned down colors compliment each other really well. Lip colors range from shimmery pink to a plum color. All in all, it is a great palette and worth every penny of the $22.50 that is charged for it on their website. It is very well made, heavy duty and sturdy. Net wt. 24g or 0.85oz

They have the best prices for NYX Cosmetics, such a great deal!

Hope yall enjoyed this review! Stay tuned for more!
