Start Your Own Business Today! Decembers Younique Preseters Kit

I am building my team and I would love love for you to join!
I'm so excited!!
Younique is a great company to earn some extra money from home.
You can do it completely from the comforts of your own home. Of course you can still do face to face, booths, and at home parties but you don't have to. You decide how you want to run it. Also, you do not have to carry any kind of inventory unless you want to. Isn't that great!
With Younique I am making some extra money but it doesn't feel like work!! It is so much fun!! I get to play in make-up and people want to buy! Some ladies are already making a killing. It's pretty amazing!
My upline just make OVER $26,000 last month. It may take me 3-5 years to get to this but I can do anything for a short amount of time if it could give me financial freedom like this! THIS IS INSANE!
If you are coachable you can do anything you set your mind to!
Message me and ask how you can get started today!
Add me as a friend on facebook and see how I'm doing it!
I couldn't have said it better myself....

"Perfect time to start your business! Only a few reasons to get in NOW! Tax deductions, launching in UK and Australia, new incentive trip being announced with the qualification period starting 1/1/14, Spring product launch, less than 6000 reps and I could go on and on and on!

Time is money. Get going. A year from now you will wish you had started today." -Nichole
Who is signing up?
You'd be surprised who you're seeing sign up! We have the stay at home moms, work from home moms (like me), work moms, teachers, college students, doctors, & some men!
We are still under 6,000 presenters but we are growing fast! SUPER FAST! I signed up presenter #2264 just 2 months ago :)

Pirate Birthday Party Ideas

Boy Birthday Party Ideas
Pirate Theme
This post is a year late but I hope you enjoy it.
Last year Jax had a Pirate Theme 3rd birthday.
Skelton Garland... 
Since his birthday is near Halloween, I was able to find a lot of skulls and skeletons from the dollar tree. Like this Skeleton garland, in the picture above.

 Pirate Birthday Banner...
 I made the "HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAX" banner myself using different papers, my ink printer, twine, hot glue and a lighter. Read more about the banner and see a close up HERE.


Pirate Snake Food Ideas:
Fruit Sword Kabobs, Chocolate Scrolls, Polly's Crackers & Cheese, Pirate Candy Oreos, Cheese Canon Balls (cheese balls).
I used burlap to help decorate the table and random beaded necklaces. I covered boxes in brown wrapping paper to lift up some foods.

The Cake...
I had so much fun making this cake! Find out more about this Pirate Skull Cake Here.

Finger Foods Table...
Pirate Finger Food Ideas. So good! We had...
Home Made Chicken Wings,
Sweet BBQ Meatballs
Veggies & Dip
Pasta Salad

Sweet BBQ Meatballs: Canon Balls. Find the recipe HERE.

This was a simple Skull Center Piece. I found the wreath and skull at the dollar tree.
How else does a Mom to a Pirate cut his cake? With his Pirate Sword, of course!

We asked the kids  to dress up as pirates (some did some didn't).
We had pirate patches, swords, and beads for all of them too.

My little man!
His Pirate Birthday Shirt....
Read more about his Pirate Birthday Shirt Here.
Pirate Thank You Goody Bags...
We made some cute handmade Pirate Loot Bags. Read more about the Pirate Goody Bags HERE.
September 2012 was a great day and I'm blessed that we got to celebrate Jaxson's Birthday together as a family.
Well... what did you think about this party?

Tinker Bell Inspired Tutu Dress. Tutu Fairy

Tinker Bell Flower Girl Dress
I love this new creation that I was asked to make over the weekend. It was for a little girls Tinker Bell Birthday Party, but they didn't want an average tinker bell costume. They asked if I could turn my Midnight Peacock Dress into a Tinker Bell Dress and this is what I came up with.
This dress is made with shades of green tulle included: Mint, Olive, Hunter Green, Green, and Lime. It comes with a braided sash.
I hope you like it as much as I do.

2 Great Freebies. 2 days only. Teacher Gift Ideas

2 Freebies.
Today & Tomorrow Only!

I'm so excited to share this with you.
I just found out about it today and it's too good not to share.
If you spend $50 or more through my Younique website you get both of these freebies!
A FREE Compact Mirror &...
A FREE Eye Pigment (eye shadow).
This is a $15 value perfect for the Holidays!
Teachers Gift Idea & Options...
Every year I give the kids teacher's a $25 gift certificate and a goody bag for the Holidays (I spend about $30 each teacher), but since I love Younique so much I'm excited to give them Lip Gloss & Eye Shadow.
 To save some money, I bought a 3 piece Lip Gloss Set & a 4 piece Eye Pigment set making their gifts only $22 instead of $30 each. I have 3 teachers this year, so I got to keep an Eye Pigment for myself. SCORE!
Depending on your budget....
$10 Budget: 1 Eye Pigment
$15 Budget: 1 Lip Gloss
$20 Budget: 2 Eye Pigments
$25 Budget: 1 Eye Pigment & 1 Lip Gloss
Have more than one teacher buy in sets and save money!
I made little gift tags that read....
"Thank You for letting me do "MAKE-UP" work!"
"I hope this "MAKES-UP" for my excessive talking."
I will post a picture of those soon. I can't wait for you to see them :)

3d Fiber Lashes from Younique.

Right now my favorite product is the 3D Fiber Mascara from Younique. Look at my lashes....
I know it's a bad picture but my lashes are amazing. I love them!
Every time I use the 3D Fiber Mascara I get a compliment. EVERY TIME! They are just waving at you saying "HI" and you can't help but notice. I'm obsessed!
Younique is having a 5 day Freebie (while supplies last) and you can get a free Mirror with any order you place. I really think you should come over to my website and purchase a set of these 3D Fiber Mascara (go wild & buy some pigments and bb cream too).
Younique also sells other great products that I use on the daily.
Here is what I use...
Awake Face Wash - it's really clearing up my skin!!
Brilliant Moisturizing Gel - leaves my skin silky smooth!
BB Flawless- not greasy like the store stuff (I use shade medium)
Concealer - I use Fabulous like a loose powder
Blushers - I love Sweet & Stunning
Pigment Eye Shadow - I love them all but Sexy & Devious is my fav!
Lip Gloss - Lavish - & it's not sticky!!
& of course my....
3D Fiber Lashes - It goes on just like mascara. Super easy and well worth it!
If you have any questions let me know, but I should tell you that.....
 Your husband called and said you can buy what ever you want. You deserve it!

My year in 5 pictures... Happy Thanksgiving. Be thankful!!

Happy Thanksgiving!
This year, my heart was stopped by paramedics. It was beating 280 beats per minute and wouldn't slow down. We finally had an answer to my personal health issues. 

My husband finished school and became a Desoto firefighter & paramedic. 
My kids are healthy little terrors.
My meant-to-be and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary (then & now).
 And my 18-year-old baby brother survived a horrific, 7 car, car accident.
It's been a crazy year and I'm so thankful for all the great things that has happened. Wow this year went by fast! There is no way that it is already Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for.  Thank you God for all of your blessings!!
Share your 5 events that you're thankful for.
Happy Blessed Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

Work from Home with Younique

Hey everyone!
I hope you are all doing well. My life has been busy since my last post. Tutu Fairy is busy, the kids have more activities, I became a Fire fighters wife (husband made his dream come true), and I started a new business.
Yep you read that right. I stopped doing cakes, and I am weaning my way out of Tutu Fairy. CRAZY CHANGES!
I discovered, from another blogging friend, a company called Younique. Have you heard of it? Younique offers high quality beauty products (make-up/skin care company) that uses naturally based products that avoid harmful ingredients and cheap fillers like talc & corn starch (bare minerals sells some very pricey corn starch).
If you are interested in more information please contact me. This company is a new company, less than a year old, so you would come on at the ground level. I signed up #2264. That's exciting!! When I singed up for Mary Kay in my early 20's I was number___?___ I don't even know, but it's hundreds of thousands. And I did good in Mary Kay but I didn't feel that it was a young company. I felt like an old lady trying to sell make-up to other old ladies and I was only 21 years old. Younique is young and fun!
The lady who I signed up under is already getting checks over $5,000 monthly. That's insane and I know that I will be there someday soon :)
I would love for you to join my team!!
It is $99 to join my team. You get a start up kit and you will get added to a fb group that helps and supports you along the way. You will never feel alone in this company.
  Top Selling Product is these 3d fiber lashes! Look how pretty my eyes look :)
Every time I put on this mascara I get compliments all day long. I love them!
My start up kit came with 30 eye shadows (15 matte. 15 shimmer), 6 concealers, 5 blushers, 3D fiber lashes, eye brush set, free website for 3 months, $10 Younique Cash.
You got this! Start making your dreams come true today :)
Start your own business today! Work from home! Set your own hours!
Treat it like a real business and you will have great success!

Cute Teachers Gift. Blinged Key Key Chain

Teachers Gift
 Last weekend my jazzed up Keys that I turned into Key Chains was a great addition to my craft show. I was able to knock out over 30 keys in just a few hours and each one turned out adorable. The kids helped me and we had a great craft time. 
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week!
For Madison's teacher we gave her one of these Blinged Keys and added a tag that said
Madison's teacher loved the gift :)

Can't upload pictures to blogger

Are you having issues uploading your pictures to blogger?
I am finally back to this "blogging thing" after a 2 month hiatus and the upload picture button was gone! It took me awhile to figure out how to upload a picture after playing with it for an hour last night. Then, I got on Facebook today and another friend blogger Kathia from Pink Little Cake was having the same issue.
If you can't figure it out...
 just upload the picture in HTML format instead of the Compose format. It's that simple! Write up your post in the Compose format, like you normally do, and switch over when you get to the upload picture part. I hope that helps :)
Are you having the same issues?
Switching from Blogger to Wordpress
One of the things I want to do this year is to switch from Blogger to Wordpress. I'm terrified to say the least. I do not know where to start and I do not want to lose half of my content. Have you made the switch? Any tips?
