Shine, Shine, Go Away!!!


5ed19fc65b990124d5f027764fdf8295I recently received my Paradise Vox Box from Influenster and absolutely have fallen in love with the Olay Fresh Effects facial cleanser that was sent to me to try. I have naturally oily skin and since using this product for the past two weeks my skin is less shiny, oily and has dramatically cleared up.


I also love the way it smells and how it feels on my skin. Also, I have to add that it doesn’t leave my face feeling dried out like other cleansers that I have tried. I can’t recommend this product enough if you have oily skin. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! If you would like to find out how you can join Influenster, feel free to email me and I will send you an invitation.

¤Tell It All Tuesday- July 2nd 2013¤



As parents we all have our “bad” moments. Moments when our nerves just can’t take it anymore and we do or say something we aren’t so proud of.

My moment happened just yesterday while at the grocery store with my kids. First let me tell you about my babies.

Damon, my oldest, is my brainiac. Always thinking and so observant (all the better for plotting). Dylon, my second oldest is my little wild man. He is constantly in motion, is crazy strong for his age and has the most determination to get his way out of any child I’ve ever met.

Dalilah is my only girl and a princess nonetheless. She knows how to get her way and how to get away with things. (btw, her and Dylon are close and partners in crime). Daydon is my youngest and the sweetest little guy you’ll ever meet.

Now back to the story, we were in the grocery store and Dylon wanted a Lunchable. I said no and that set off the snowball effect. He began repeating “please” over and over, getting louder and louder. I have been trying to ignore him when he does this sort of thing but then he began running around the store and laughing at me.

I grabbed everyone, left our basket of groceries and went home. I took the two babies and locked myself in my room and cried. I wish I could handle his behavior more effectively. Giving up was not my finest hour.

Now it is your turn, what was your moment? You can post it in the comments or email me and I can post it anonymously for you.
