5 Year Old Flips Out When His Elf Comes Home For Christmas {Video}

Elf on the Shelf, Todd

Of course our Children love Todd, as he has been apart of the family for the last three years, but this year my son had a melt down. Watch Jax flip out when his Elf, Todd, comes home for the Holidays. Enjoy!

Did you watch the video? Share with your friends and give them a laugh today!

This picture says it all....
5 year old having a melt down over his Elf on the Shelf with sister's evil laugh in the background.

Does your family participate in the Elf on the Shelf tradition? This fun but sometimes hair pulling tradition parents create for their children to encourage them to be good. The idea is, your Elf reports to Santa every night to tell Santa if you've been naughty or nice, but upon return your Elf gets into things. So us parents have to come up with new ideas each night for the elf to do. This is all fun and games until you wake up at 5 am and remembered that you didn't move the Elf. We have done that more than once & our kids have a melt down. Our excuse is "You must have touched him" or "He had a sugar high and crashed". What excuse do you make when you forget to move the Elf?

DIY Ombre Lips

Ombre Lip Tutorial

Have you seen this new trend going around? It's simple to do and gives any old makeup routine a pick me up. 

For Ombre Lips pictured above you will need:

Outline your lips in Pompous while bringing the color toward the center of your lips. Do not fill your entire lip. Then, add some Lovable to the center of your lips. Blend as well as you want or don't blend at all. I did a soft blend.

The Pompous liner will last all day, but I did need to touch up the Lovable Lipgloss after I ate lunch.

What do you think? Would you rock this look?

Cranberry Lip Stain. Youtube video

Smear Proof, Kiss Proof.

On days that I don't feel like getting fancy I just throw on some big shades and my lip stain. This stuff does exactly what it says. It stains my lips, last all day, and passes the kiss test. 

I'm all for a red lip but some ladies do not think they can pull it off. I'm here to tell you that YES, YOU CAN! I was once like you thinking that I couldn't rock a red lip, but now I'm obsessed. I get more compliments when I wear a red lip then when I wear any other color. 

Technically, it's not even red! It's a light cranberry color that you can layer to get a darker hue. 

3d Fiber Lashes, Cranberry Lip Stain, and some Black "Perfect" Eye Liner is all you need on a sick day. 

Stiff Upper Lip can be yours for FREE if you order $150 worth of products through
It's a great time to go Holiday shopping and we have the best gift ideas out there. Every lady loves skin care and/or makeup, not to mention our 3D Fiber Lashes.

Check out my Youtube Video that I made just for you! 

Happy Holidays! What's on your Christmas list?

1 Tier Wavy Nautical Cake

Wavy Nautical Baby Shower Cake
This is a cake I made in 2013 for a baby shower.
This nautical cake came out exactly how I wanted. I love it!

I can not take any credit for this design. This design is from Smash Cakery. I borrowed her idea and compacted her 3 tier cake into a 1 tier cake.
This is a 6" small cake. I covered it in fondant, added the waves, then added the decorations. The decorations was made a few days prior. The cake topper is made out of gum paste.

Shake the Crave Product Review. Control Hunger Today!

 When I was asked to sample Shake the Crave by Trusted Health Products I was all game. I mean, why would I not want to control my hunger? Some days I lose all control and eat everything in my path. Admit it you have days like that too! 

Then, when I read that Shake the Crave is made from 100% pure ingredients including natural sugar cane, I got excited.

I received Shake the Crave in Vanilla and in Chocolate. 

It was so easy to mix. Just add 8oz of your choice of milk and blend, but don't blend it too fast or it comes out like this...

The first time I blended it I didn't follow the steps and blended it on high. I got a foam layer on top, but this foam layer did not effect the taste what-so-ever.

If you are looking for something to control your hunger, to give you an extra boost of energy, or to replace unhealthy snakes then this is the product for you. It was delicious and I forgot to eat lunch! Yes! I drank this at 7am and at 2pm I realized that I didn't eat my lunch! That never happens!

So Chocolate vs Vanilla? What would you pick?

I preferred the Vanilla more :)

Smear proof lip liner. It passes the "KISS" test.

Smear Proof Lip Liner

I've received numerous comments on my lips the last few months, since I started to use this new product. People have seen me kiss my husband and kids and have stated, "Wow, your lipstick didn't budge!" 

I have a secret. I'm not wearing lip stick! 

I kid you not, these last all day long. I just put a solid coat all over my lips. I can eat, drink, take a shower and it's still on! It's the perfect matte lip look you're looking for. 

Easy to remove. It will fade away eventually or you can add some chap-stick over it and it will glide right off. Tell me what you think. Which shade is your favorite?

I never thought I could pull of red lips, but it's my new thing!

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara VS Younique 3D Fiber Lashes Review

Perversion Mascara Vs 3D Fiber Lashes

I enjoy all brands of makeup, so when I had the chance to try the Perversion Mascara from Urban Decay I was very excited to compare it to Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes.

I love the Urban Decay Perversion. It might be the best mascara that I've ever tried if it was before I tried the 3D Fiber Lashes. 

The Perversion Mascara from Urban Decay went on smooth and the brush was incredibly soft and flexible. It covered my lashes great, but it took 3-4 full coats for my eyes to get the effect that I like.

When I compare the Urban Decay Perversion Mascara to the Younique Moodstruck 3d Fiber Lashes, Younique 3d Fiber Lashes WIN!!!

Although, the 3d Fiber Lashes are more time consuming the results are worth the extra step. It goes on just like mascara and washes off with soap and water. I use eye makeup remover to get it off quick. 

Here are my results....
This is with 2 coats Perversion Mascara from Urban Decay VS one coat of Younique 3d Fiber Lashes. What do you think? I should have used a lash comb, but I do like the results.

Now, I use both! 
The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara under the 3d Fiber Lashes from Younique and I get these results...
My results are incredible and my Regal Eye Pigment tops off my look.  

What do you think? What is your favorite mascara out there? I would love to review it.

Red, White, & Blue Makeup - 4th of July

4th of July Makeup
This past 4th of July I was challenged to do something fun with my makeup. The challenge was to create a red, white, and blue look using Younique.
The Details...
All my skin care & makeup was Younque and my skin has never looked better...
For my skin care routine I used (in this order)...
For my make up I used....
If you have any questions on these products and the benefits of them just let me know. Mineral Naturally based makeup is good for the skin. Primer is a great base for the mineral makeup to last all day. Rosewater works as a toner, reduces pores, and gives you a dewy look.  Awake & Brilliant helps aid acne and helps fade acne scars and more.
My personal results...
I want you to have fabulous lashes too!

Check out my Younique Website for all the products above. Save money by ordering a collection. We have wonderful collections that come with a great makeup case.

Utah Timber Moose Lodge Green Leadership Retreat

Just from selling some "Mascara"...
Last weekend, 23 other ladies and I won a trip to Timber Moose Lodge in Utah.  This place was amazing! It is the largest private cabin in USA and it's breath taking. Here is the link to check it out this 13 bedroom, 16 bath, little piece of heaven ...
My view from the balcony in my room....
A few of the Taxidermy hanging around....
Snap shots of the fun....
When we all hit Green Elite Status with Younique they treated us to a 3 day Leadership Retreat. It was pretty incredible. Not only did we get training from the Co-Founders of the company, Derek Maxfield & Melanie Huscroft, but we also had a chance to bounce off leadership ideas off of one another. We stayed up late, had catered breakfast, lunch, & dinner, and we have a common love for the company we are promoting.
Younique might be the best thing that has happened to my family in years. It's incredible how something could change my life so fast, but it has. I am forever grateful for the weekend I had with this group of ladies & the Co-Founders of the company.
Maybe, you're looking for something to change your life? If it's only $100 extra a month or $2,000 extra a month;  the sky is the limit! Some women are making the extreme at $50,000 a month... yes MONTHLY!
I would love to tell you more about how you can start your own Younique business and join my team. If you can copy and paste, share this business, have fun, and be coachable then you can do this! It's so much fun. Check out my Younique website HERE.
