Looking Fresh


Hi Everyone!!

I thought I would share a few of my favorite beauty products that I am addicted to.  These products give me the Fresh-Dewy look this girl loves.

I always begin with a clean slate which is my First Aid Beauty Cleanser, First Aid Beauty Moisturizer and Must Dew by Limelight. Once I have step one complete I am ready for my day-look application.

Step 1: Tarte Shape Tape, 2 in 1 full covereage concealer. Sculpt and highlight as you mask any imperfections. It is hydrating, long wearing and delivers a radiant coverage.
(I apply with a concealer sponge)

Step 2: Tarte BB Cream, Oil -free, vegan tinited moisturizer that offers light-medium coverage. I love that it diffuses the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It has an Amazonian clay-powered formula with chamomile and vitamins A, C, and E to nourish your complexion. (I apply with a blender sponge)

Step 3: MAC Studio Fix Powder, A one-step powder/foudation that gives skin a smooth, flawless finish. It is long-wearing and adds a velvety texture that allows your skin to breathe. (I lightly dust over my face with my Limelight Professional Vegan All Over Powder Brush)

Step 4: Limelight Perfect Bronzer, This bronzer I use below my cheek bones to give a light sun-kissed illusion. It is ideal for all skin tones to enhance your natural glow.
(I apply my bronzer with my tapered powder brush by Limelight)

Step 5: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, This ultra creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara is amazing. It glides on easily and creates sexy lashes instantly.
(I apply as directed for stand-out lashes)

Step 6: MAC Prep+Prime fix +, Finish your look with this lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals. It is hydrating, sets and prolongs the wear of makeup. (Spray and get on with your bad self!)

As always, thank you all for following my blog!

Kale Yeah!


I have been missing the crunch of crackers and chips living the keto lifestyle, so I made Kale Chips! Kale Yeah! I did and they are delicious and satisfied my craving for traditional chips.

KALE CHIPS

1 head of kale
2 tablespoons  avocado oil or olive oil
Himalayan pink salt, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wash and dry kale and cut into bite size pieces, removing the ribs. Lay kale on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and toss with avocado or olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp about 10-15 minutes, turning leaves halfway through.

Enjoy!

Keep Busy, Empty Nester


So, I am fairly new at Network Marketing (two months), been Blogging for two and half years and Teaching Montessori for fifteen years. I have been questioned on why I decided to start a business when I already teach full-time and blog part-time.

Well, here is why. Lets just go back to when our four kids were at home in school, involved in sports, after school activities, etc… I was busy 24/7. Drop off/pick up at school and practices, running to 2-3 games on game days (mind you we had three boys on three different baseball teams) and a very social teenage daughter.
img_5288As each of our children graduated high school, left for college, moved out on their own, I began feeling unneeded, bored, a bit depressed. That is when I began blogging about fashion, family, fitness, wine country living etc.. It gave me an outlet to express and share the things I love.

Then last year after my youngest graduated high school I started researching Network Marketing and really became intrigued by the idea of being a business owner. I love the products and love being able to share them. I am contributing to our retirement, vacationing and helping out the kids more when needed. Last but not least I have met some amazing people that I call friends through this business from all around the country ( I hope to visit South Dakota someday) 

So, here I am busier than ever and loving every minute of it and still having the time to spend with my family. Also, realizing having our four kids ranging from 18 – 23 now is just a new phase of our family. They have all grown into exceptional adults and our bond is stronger than ever!

Cheers to being a blessed mom, wife, teacher, blogger and business owner.
