AMAZING Friends & My Mom’s New Start

I started writing this post an hour ago entitled “This year can SUCK IT”.  I still stand by that statement, but I feel like my rambles deserve two posts.  So first, the saga of my mom’s horrible, no good, very bad summer that is starting to turn around thanks to some truly generous and AMAZING people I’m so glad to count as friends.  This is going to be long & very personal, so strap in.

The Goodbye I Didn’t Get to Say to Lunchbox

This year can suck it.  I’m almost afraid that I got a new pet, because it has not been a good year for my pets.  Not only did I have to say goodbye to Winston the Wonder Pug in January, but this week, without warning, one of my cats Lunchbox passed away.  Cancer sucks.

Lightning Bolt Manicure using NailVinyls

I am a bit of a hoarder of nail vinyls.  Even though I think I’ve figured out making my own for the most part with the Cricut, I have some that I purchased from NailVinyls™ and I don’t want to just blow through them.  So I tend to forget I have them.  I’ve been in a bit of a nail art rut lately while working on other projects and having some pain issues in my left thumb, so I decided I wanted something simple to do, yet fun, to shake things up a bit.

Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers Review

There are a lot of trends in crafts right now, but one I have just not jumped on board with is the CHALKBOARD THE EVERYTHING trend.  It’s a look I just don’t find appealing, most of the time.  I like things to look more precise, more measured, and while I have nice handwriting, I can’t draw for shit.  That said, I have previously bought cute little “chalkboard” clothespin signs and a standard white chalk marker for entertaining purposes, but found that the chalk never really removed from the signs.  I think being able to play with these liquid chalk markers had taught me the limitations and how I can be happy with a chalkboard look project!

Mia Adora 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review

More dreams of full, flirty lashes danced in my head when I was given a significant discount on 3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Mia Adora.  Like many women, I’ve been invited to more Younique Facebook parties than I can count (don’t get me started…) and I can’t say I wasn’t at least curious, but the price tag and pushy sales tactics of the product turned me off.  So, let’s see how well this product does, shall we?

RFID Blocking Sleeves Review

Anyone who is even a little tech savvy knows that RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification.  That’s how some hotel key cards work and that handy tap & pay feature on your debit or credit card works.  So of course, that’s how savvy identity thieves are thieving.  Fortunately, here’s my review of these handy RFID blocking sleeves.
