February Ipsy


This months Ipsy bag didn't fail me! I actually canceled my Birchbox, This month was the last straw. I know I could have went in and changed some settings but I just didn't feel like it. I am going to try a new subscription, next month. It's called Darby Smart! How cool is it that they send you DIY projects.. Love the idea. So I signed up and should be here in March! 


Anyways so here is February's Ipsy bag.

This months bag included Pacifica Body Butter, a Zoya Polish, POP beauty lip gloss, Eye-lashes, and Eye shadow cream. 


The bag is pink on the outside with a white zipper & the inside is a pink leopard print. 

Tini Beauty
Eyetini Cordial Cream Shadow + Base In One


I love cream shadows! Usually I don't go so dark, but this color was pretty good. It went on very smooth and stayed on for a long time. After rubbing it in though it left a streak of where I put it on. 
You can use the wand instead of your finger to get a bolder look. Just let the shadow dry completely before doing to much fluttering of the eyes. 

Pacifica
Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter

When I opened the envelop this is all I could smell. It is amazing! It made my skin so soft and touchable! I absolutely love the lotion. It didn't make my hand or body greasy either. 

POP Beauty-Plump Pout Mini
Peony Petal





POP Beauty's Plump Pout Mini glosses are full of lip plumping peptides, avocado and jojoba oils. Application was very smooth and not sticky at all. I don't normally do color lips or lip gloss for that matter, but I think I'll try it out now! I am now in love with this new lip gloss =)

Zoya Nail Polish
Odette
As always, application for Zoya is wonderful! I wasn't impressed by the color at first but then I put it on and it grew on me.

J.Cat Beauty
Eyelashes + Eyelash Glue
I've never done fake eye lashes before, so I don't know how they normally are to put on. Based on what I hear, they are great. They last a long time without bothering your eyes. These are a little more dramatic so I would like to wear these on like, my birthday or something.

Weigh In Wednesday NEW Link-up HERE!

Eating Healthy! No, not "dieting".. but eating healthy! I have joined a group on facebook (actually more then one) to help me keep on track. This is more for my health more then anything.. but of course, I can't help but to think about myself in my two piece this summer! 

One group that I joined are a bunch of friends, it's called "fit and sexy" you can't get any better then that! We give each other the motivation we need to get up and eat healthy, and stick to it! 




This week I am also doing a "5 Day Eat Better Plan". It's basically five days of no sweets, processed foods, soda, & juice. Which is pretty simple for me, the challenge is more of processed foods & buying all the right foods to feed my house of 5, including two grown ass men and a picky 4 year old! I will post my entire week challenges and all, next week.

These are my before pictures & measurements. (February 23,2014)
BUST- 36
HIPS- 40
WAIST- 31
THIGHS- 42
WEIGHT- 160

I was debating on putting my name up there, but what the hell. If someone wants to steal THAT picture.. smh be my guest! :/  by the way - please excuse the babies mess! 

Since I've been eating healthier the past few days, and working out regularly.. Or maybe it's all the water I'm drinking (not including the wine I had earlier) I feel great! The only thing I really need to work on is sleeping and drinking more water. Other then that I think I'm on the right track for eating and being healthy! 


Today is an unusual day to weigh in for me, working over night shifts usually have my weight all screwed up.

  • Gym Scale (2.25.14 9p.m. before dinner, right after working out) - 153.5
  • Work Scale (2.26.14 3a.m. after snack, before breakfast) - 158
Normally you weigh yourself first thing in the morning, so technically the gym scale would be about right. (hopefully). Keep in touch with me on FACEBOOK to see updates! 


Now let's see yours! 

So here it is ! A new link-up for everyone to share there thoughts, feelings, motivation on fitness, & etc. (you get the point) posts! I will try to post my weight every Wednesday but as you know with me, life is hectic, life is crazy, and it might not be "Weigh In Wednesday" next week it might be "Weigh In Friday"... So that's why I am letting the link-up stay open for 5 days after Wednesday! 




There are no rules I only ask :
  1. Link-up any of your recent fitness/weight loss posts. 
  2. Follow your host, THAT'S ME! & Also our co-host, if there are any for that week! 
  3. Grab the "Weigh In Wednesday" blog hop button & place it anywhere on your blog page or a specific entry with a link back to me.
  4. Check out at least 3 other links. You may want to follow these awesome bloggers!

How to fix Broken Make-up!


So I like to carry my make-up with me at all times and of course it almost always breaks. 

I found out how to fix that though! 

Here is a simple DIY on how to fix your broken compact make-up! 





First cover with saran wrap, break up your powder and smooth it out. Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol and using your finger to smooth the powder back into shape. Let dry before using.

If the damage can't be repaired, you can always crush it completely, and use it as loose powder! I'm just sayin! Your welcome ! LOL

discipline

Before you read this, this is a disclosure ; 


DO NOT JUDGE ME , I TAKE CRITICISM WELL,
SO YES YOU CAN SPEAK YOUR MIND BUT DO NOT JUDGE ME. THANKS =)

Sooooo Josiah had a Valentine's Day party at his pre-school that I helped with last week .. And it went ... 

pretty damn good!

YES, you heard me right. I went to his school and he was so good. Obedient to his teacher.. I'm just standing there like WTF, is this real life right now? 

She told him to stop doing something and he stopped right away.. No fussing, no whining, nothing.He put his hands in his lap like she told him to, and he sat there! 

Can someone please tell me why the hell do I have to say something twenty times then leads to screaming and shouting for you to STILL NOT listen to me?! I try not to lose my temper because I don't want him to think it's okay to yell and scream (which he does that too)

I really think it's because he knows he can get away with it at our house or with us . Not on purpose but for the simple fact that he whines, cries and screams about something until the end of time..

I mean literally...THE END OF TIME ....it's like he is determined to get his way with us. And he usually does. If not from one person, it's from another person in the house.

Which brings me to this. A few weeks back I wrote a status on my facebook about how I threaten him with the belt and it still doesn't help.. 
I got a lot of feedback on it 




I also think since starting school, he has been a little worse then normal. I think he sees that we are trying to "not give in" to him or what we call "spoil" him as much and he is taking it personal! 

I have tried the timer, I've tried time out, I've tried giving him choices, I have tried taking away all his toys, I've tried the belt, I have tried a lot!

What disciplinary actions do you use at home to make your child listen? Does your child act better with other people then with you? Is this normal?!

Never will I ever..

So remember in my post yesterday telling you that I was tired out of my mind because Joe kept me up all night. Please let me explain! 

I got off of work Saturday around 3 and just knew I would get everything I needed done, have a dinner date with my babies (Joe & Josiah), and maybe go to movie after Josiah went to sleep.. After I got off Lindsey asked me to go to dinner.. I wanted to go but Joe didn't. I haven't seen her in a while and she offered free food (& I couldn't pass that up)LOL  Love you Lindsey ...While we were deciding on what we were going to do the rest of the night... Joe went to have a drink with his friend and I had dinner with mine. 

During dinner, me & Joe decided on going to Dave & Busters with his friends. When we get done eating and get back to Lindsey's house, Josiah was playing and didn't even want to leave... but Joe insisted that we bring him -_____-

Mind you it is around 8 PM now... he hadn't had a nap all day and was livid when I tried to make him leave. 

After about an hour of begging him to get his shoes and jacket on, we left.

Got there, and everything was going good... UNTIL I got frustrated. I don't know if it was mother nature or that it was 12 AM and I had my four year old out this late that bothered me the most. I always said I wouldn't be "that mother that has there little kid out this late at night". "They should be in bed" All of it ...it bothered me. 

It took an hour just to get a seat. another hour just to get our food ordered, then another hour to get the food! I was beyond frustrated... Joe was getting so mad at me because I was complaining that I wanted to go home. but we didn't drive (which I always said I would never do that again either SMH) 

We left and Josiah fell asleep on the ride home.. It's about 1:30 and we pull up to their house. I go get the car and what does Joe do? Pull Josiah out of their car & he is running around like it's time to wake up. When we say we are leaving, he is crying and wants to stay at their house and play. 

After another 30 minutes of begging him to get his shit back on.. We drive to my mom's house (a.k.a my house) where my mom is still up. For those of you who don't know, Josiah is a spoiled brat when it comes to his grandma (nana) 

Now here we have another problem. If I didn't live with my mom Josiah would have went right to sleep. but no.. He cried for my mom for another hour...

Moral of the story : NEVER WILL I EVER BRING MY NON- NAP HAVIN CHILD OUT AFTER DARK EVER AGAIN!!!!!!

Valentine's Day really sucked. I bought Joe Katt Williams tickets & a datevitation book.LOL  I mean we went to dinner (which by the way,sucked too)but if you keep u with me on facebook you'll know that mother nature came and so after dinner we went home and went to sleep. 




Yep I made this one. & I wasn't referring to snow either.


I haven't linked up with Jenn for 5 for Five in a while, so here it is
  1. Work out 3x 
  2. Blog interaction at least 3x
  3. Mail out giveaway polish
  4. Call to get Obama-care
  5. Call my lawyer & get things in order from my car accident 
There ya have it. I have to do all these things.

DIY "Superhero" Valentines


Yesterday I stayed up all night making these damn things.


I didn't think it would be that hard, but I couldn't find a picture of Josiah that was front facing. (which I highly recommend)



So instead of using Paints bubble maker thing, I had to draw on his mask! You try doing that with a computer and mouse.



Then I found a very cute "Superman" logo replaced with a "J".
Next, still using Paint, I wrote the note that goes on the cape.



After printing everything, I cut them all out it was time to make the cape..



Draw the cape, cut it out, punch a hole at the top, glue his head in place &
Viola !




VIA MY PINTEREST BOARD

Valentine's Day Crafts

Hey everyone! I know I have been MIA for a while with my personal posts...but I'm back!

After every thing that I've been through the past few months (you can read that here) it has been hard to manage it all plus blogging. I am always find great things to make on pinterest or from my facebook, but time and money are the big issue. Losing even the two weeks of work, my entire budget was at a stand still. Like ...I'm broke. I didn't mean to spend all my savings but it happened.. and FAST. 

I don't want to bore you with my incomplete sentences and my sob story TODAY, so I want to share what we have been doing here at home and STICKING TO A BUDGET! 

Valentine's Day is right around the corner!!! Who is excited??

I saw these ideas on Pinterest so I invited a few friends over to try them out!

You'll need paper plates, scissors, construction paper, stick glue, a hole puncher (not necessary), & string.

Cut out the middle of paper plates & cut out a few different size and color hearts for them to glue on. Then punch a hole at the top and pull any kind of string for it to hang. 





NEXT...

You'll need toilet paper rolls (you can even cut them in half like I did), Tape, Construction paper & Paint .. Any color, but if you are using pink and red paper, you'll want to use a different color of then those. 

You just bend the toilet paper roll into the shape of a heart, tape it in place and VIOLA ! They had even more fun getting messy with the paint ..

 was he eating the paint?? LOL 




Oh and I know  alot of you are here for the #SITSblogging WELCOME!

If you could take the time out to vote for me on the right hand side is the link..
 I am trying to win my son an xbox one! Please and Thank you so very much!!
