3D Fiber Lashes, Say What?!?

Friends! Have you seen/heard about Younique? Specifically Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara?? No? Let me tell you about it! I LOVE this mascara, it makes my boring lashes Sassy! LOVE it! It takes your lashes from "Hi" to "Hello Baby!"





The 3D Fiber Mascara actually adds length to your lashes. Not like regular mascara. It's a 3 step process where you start with our Transplanting Gel first, then our Green Tea Fibers (there is where the magic happens!), then you seal it again with the Transplanting Gel. You will literally see the length of your lashes grow as you apply it. It stays on all day and is water resistant. This is seriously the best mascara I have ever come across!
**naturally based makeup, paraben free, carcinogen free, free of harmful chemicals, cruelty free, hypoallergenic! In less than 3 minutes you'll have the best looking lashes of your life! This goes on just like mascara, is safe for contact lens wearers, and water resistant! Removes easily with any face wash and water.

Check out my mom's before and after:


 Isn't that a transformation??? Look how her eye pops! Look how long her lashes are!! Mom's got some Sassy Lashes now!!

Here are some other before and after's:




We also carry other products, Here a few pictures:
 



Run, and grab your SASSY LASHES now! You can thank me later!

Blogging through tears...

Tonight I come to you through a waterfall of tears.

Right now they are angry tears. Asking how? Why?

I'm asking God to show me...I hear no answer, or maybe I do and don't want to listen, I don't know right now. I'm crying out to Him. Why me? Why us? What did I do to deserve this?

I know I didn't deserve anything. Its just the Devil trying to rear his little head in there...

The Bible says it is supposed to be a physical representation of the Holy Trinity and learning how to Love and Serve one another unconditionally. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her.

Be Kind and Compassionate to each other, Forgive one another, Just as Christ God forgave you.  Ephesians 4:32

Week one of counseling has yielded nothing really. I just relearned what I knew already but forgot/set aside.

I don't know what he got from it, he isn't talking to me right now.


Ending with tears of sorrow.

Trichotillomania, AKA: Hair Pulling

What is Trichotillomania? (I can not even pronounce that)

Trichotillomania (trik-o-til-o-MAY-nee-uh) is a disorder that involves recurrent, irresistible urges to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body, despite trying to stop.
Hair pulling from the scalp often leaves patchy bald spots, which causes significant distress and can interfere with social or work functioning. People with trichotillomania may go to great lengths to disguise the loss of hair.
For some people, trichotillomania may be mild and generally manageable. For others, the compulsive urge to pull hair is overwhelming.

(I linked the Mayo clinic site up there ^ )

I have a mild case. I've always had it. One of my earliest (13 years old maybe younger) memories of it, is plucking most of my eye lashes out!!! Youch! right? 
My eye brows have been paper thin before, trying to get a straight line.
I still over pluck sometimes...and have to painfully let them grow back in. I say painfully, but what I mean is resist the urge to pluck and maintain a clean line.
I catch my self doing that with my eye lashes too! If there is one or two out of line I have to pluck. Or resist the urge to. Not really an urge but a compulsive behavior that just happens.

When my third son was born, I developed a habit or compulsion to pluck my hair out. I had a few spots that were BALD on my head. One was at the base of my hairline on the left side of my neck/head. I felt ashamed to put my hair up and let people wonder why. I thought it was stress, until I stumbled upon this disorder. I felt better about it, knowing it was 'real'. I thought it was all stress, overwhelmingness ( <--- a="" baby...new="" house...etc.="" kids...new="" not="" of="" p="" thats="" three="" word...="">
I 'grew' out of that slowly, my hair grew back.

Until recently. about a year ago. I started pulling my hair on my head again, right at the top. I had to part it differently, or rather a deeper side part to cover it up. And still it shows. I see it. Others may not. But I do. I am getting to the point where I may not be able to cover it up. It scares me, but I CAN'T stop!

I have tried occupying my hands.
When I realize what I am doing, get up and move around.
I change the way I'm sitting. I tried a squeeze ball.

I have also noticed my eyebrows getting thinner, and a greater distance from each other.

So I am hoping by admitting this, or rather publicly outing myself I can cope with it better, or lessen it, or hopefully stop it all together!

Do you have Trichotillomania? If so, do you have any techniques that you have in place to avoid plucking?
Or even if you don't, do you have any thoughts on how to overcome, or lessen my 'urge'?

Thanks for getting through all that.

Footnote: I do NOT eat my hair.

New Family members

If your new to my blog, We have chickens. Last summer we hatched 6 eggs. We currently have two laying hens from those eggs, pretty amazing. Rosie and Valentine. They are Red Dorkings. Or Colored Dorkings.


Rosie in front, Valentine you can see her backside here. Shimmer and Sparkle are the black ones in the back.
 Shimmer and Sparkle are Black Americaunas

The girls run to the gate every time I come out and try to jump it.

Delicious home grown eggs. What could be better? I get light tan ones slightly pink, and a nice green blue color.
I think I told you that Shimmer and Sparkle were Christmas Gifts from some very special friends of ours. They have taught and given me so much. I don't know what I'd do with out them! Thanks Christina and Robert!

So, one night I was going out to put up the girls, into their coop, and lock them down so they don't get attacked by raccoons or possums. I upgraded the run also - fully enclosed it with chicken wire and PVC pipping, so now its more secure and things won't get in, hopefully.


And this little chicken is just roaming around the outside of my run! All by his lonesome self! I was shocked! Kevin (hubby) thought I bought a new one and said I found it, lol. So we scooped it up, put it in a cage inside the porch and posted pictures of him in my chicken group. They told me he was a friggin BALD EAGLE!! I panicked! Then I realized, nah, impossible. So we then decided it was indeed a chicken, after numerous amount of other bird predictions including a turkey...

Odd Ball when we first found him, when he was about 4-5 weeks old.
 He was lonely, So I went to get him some friends....Kevin wasn't so happy about it...

Odd Ball and his new friends.

Odd Balls new friends, Henny Penny (back right), Amelia Bedilia (front right), and Thelma and Louise (two left ones)

Henny Penny turned out to have a scissor beak, its just unaligned jaws. Hard for her to eat and drink, she is half the size of her sisters. She is being babied, gets special food, more love. She is a Buff Orpington. I forget what Amelia Bedilia is, something with a W, and the twins are Barred Rocks.

Now, remember the lovely Lavender Orpingtons I adopted back in December? Well they have grown up. They are beautiful!! Victor and Violet. Violet is not laying yet, but Victor has found his purpose in life, besides crowing. I can't wait to try my hand at hatching his biddies!!



Here are current Pictures of the newbies:

I think Odd Ball is some sort of Game Poultry

Amelia Bedilia is such a sweet girl, very friendly.
