MKMR or just MR

My friend and neighbor, Lori {a.k.a. T.W.I.T.}, just started her new business with Mary Kay.

If you don't know her personally, I just wanted to fill you in a blurb about her.

She's a mother of 2, her son, Rhys {a.k.a. Rhys Monkey}, is 2 and her daughter, Charlie {a.k.a. Charlie Chunker Thighs}, is 9 months old.

She's an ultrasound tech for a local hospital 2 to 3 days a week.

She's a stay-at-home-mom when she's not work at the hospital.

And now, she's a Mary Kay beauty consultant.

So what does "MKMR or just MR" mean, you ask?

It's going to be MY "Mary Kay Makeup Review" or just "Makeup Review" on products that I try that I think you need to know about or even experience for yourself. 

A while back, I told you about my love for MAC and how I just wasn't going to ever stray from them.  They are a good product, the price point was OK and the color selection for eyes and lips was just amazing!

Well, then about a year later, I was talking with Lori about how I didn't like the coverage of the MAC studio fix and that I was tired of it being cakey... So, she convinced me to try Bare Minerals.  It was a thought in the back of my mind for some time now but it just wasn't a purchase that I wanted to make.

I received a gift certificate and went to the store to have someone try it out on me.  I wasn't sure that it was going to be something that I wanted and I didn't want to buy until I had felt it on my face.  They did a great job so when I got home I decided to sign up for their club.  It's been great.  My only complaint is that it's not ideal for the car nor does it come out of clothes that well.

Lori was an advocate of Bare Minerals and felt that they were a great product.  I followed her lead and wasn't disappointed.

So, {basically after proof reading this I've come to the conclusion that I'm a HUGE follower, but} with all of that said, Lori has now had the change her mind on a couple of things, now being a MK consultant.  She's not full blown MK, as you can't really be because there will be things that you will still adore from another product line.

Lori has only been selling it for about 3 weeks now and during that time, we've both had a chance to attend two different MK shows/demonstrations.  During that time we've learned a bit more about the product and about other products that the company had that we were not aware of... Or maybe just how certain products would work.

Get on with it, right?

Okay, ok, ok...

The first product that I would like to talk about in my MKMR session today is the Facial Highlighting Pen.

You just crank the bottle part of the pen to push the liquid to the top and use the brush to dab it onto the inner corner of your eye and the outer corner/under eye part.  From there you take your ring finger and tap it into your skin.  It brightens or highlights your eye just enough that it can make a huge difference.

It's perfect and will make your eyes so much more open and bright.  It's also much better than concealor because the texture of this liquid is much more light and still gives great coverage.

You should try it!

If you want to buy this pen today, contact Lori, HERE.

The last thing I want to note is the product quality you are getting for a less if not comparable price of the department store products!  Bare Minerals is almost $5 more than Mary Kay's Minerals and they feel so much better!!

Alright, I'm done for now, but I'll be back with more suggestions...

I'm a MK consultant too. and I was getting ready to blog about one of my own favorite products. I LOVE their stuff. (hence why I decided to be a consultant and get it at a cheaper cost. :)

Yay for Lori!!!!
Yay for T.W.I.T.! Exciting! I wish her all the best!

I've been using Mary Kay since I was 14. (I'm 30.) I SWEAR by their skin care line. I SWEAR by it.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
