Blogmas Day 13- Easy Makeup!!!


Hey everyone,

So today, I had a doctors appointment. The one thing I hate doing when I feel like crap, is looking anywhere near acceptable to walk outside my door. I want to stay in my yoga pants and giant t-shirt with my hair all messy. But no, I had to go to the doctors office. So, I did the absolute least.

The absolute least-

I wanted to post a before picture but forgot to take it until I was almost done with my concealer..lol

Step 1- I applied the Wet n Wild Conceal Makeup Stick under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin. Then I blend it out. The formula of this is very creamy and feels more like a foundation stick than concealer.

Step 2- I used the Wet n Wild Blush in Floral Majority on my cheeks and blended it out.

Step 3- Wet n Wild Highlight stick in When The Nude Strikes. I applied this on the high points of my face.

Can you see a trend with the Wet n wild makeup sticks?? Lol

Step 4- Next I applied Maybelline Fit Me Powder all over my face to set all the cream products.

Step 5- I applied Younique Splurge Cream Shadow in Unapologetic on my lids and blended it out.

Step 6- Makeup Revolution Focus & Fix on my brows.

Step 7- L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise on my lashes.

Step 8- Wet n Wild lipstick in Will you be with me.. weird name lol. I love this lipstick, it’s only 99 cents and they are really creamy and feel amazing on my lips.

There you have my easy peasy makeup of the day.

Blogmas Day 12- Holiday Stressing!!


Hey everyone,

It’s that special time of year where stress seems to be more present. Why are the holidays so stressful? Most of the time I feel like we create our own stress. Worrying about trivial things, like will my daughter have enough presents, will I make enough food and cookies for everyone on Christmas Eve. We stress out about stuff that isn’t even about Christmas. We forget that Christmas is about the birth of our lord, instead we worry about the elf of the shelf and Santa.

The holidays are about spending time with family and friends. I think once we remember what Christmas is really about, we stop stressing and enjoy this magical time of the year.

Blogmas Day 11- Motivational Monday!!!


Hey everyone,

I’ve decided to take a break from motivational Monday until the new year. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to still try to eat and drink healthy. I’m just not going to stress out about it during the holidays.

The holidays have been very stressful this year, which makes me want to eat. I’m starting in incorporate healthier eating habits. So, when I do eat I grab some veggies and not a bag of chips.

Who knows, maybe by the beginning of the year, I will have Lot 10 pounds because I’m not stressing about losing weight.

Blogmas Day 10- Skincare Routine!!!


Hey everyone,

So, I’m gonna be honest with you, I don’t wash my face everyday and sometimes I leave my makeup on while I sleep. Since I’m getting older, I really need to start keeping up with my skincare. I don’t want to look like the walking dead by the time I’m 40..lol

Here is my skincare routine!!!

First I use the Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser to clean my face. Then I use the Pixi Glow Tonic to tone my skin. It’s also exfoliating which makes my skin glow.

I use the Pixi Rose Oil Blend to help with my skins luminosity and I love the smell lol

I end my skincare routine with L’Oreal Reviralift. This stuff is amazing, it’s anti-aging, which I need. Plus, it moisturizes like a dream..lol

There you go, that’s my skincare routine. I swear this post is not sponsored by Pixi. Lol

Blogmas Day 9- Favorite Christmas Movies!!


Hey everyone,

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is getting cozy and watching Christmas movies. There are so many cute Christmas movies.

Here are my top 5-

Philip (Steve Martin) manages a suicide-prevention hotline called Lifesavers, assisted by Mrs. Munchnik (Madeline Kahn) and Catherine (Rita Wilson). On Christmas Eve, Philip learns that their landlord (Garry Shandling) is evicting them from their office. Amid all this unrest, Catherine proclaims her love for Philip. And when a transvestite (Liev Schreiber) and a pregnant woman (Juliette Lewis) enter into the equation, things get even more interesting.

This movie is hilarious!! I have to watch it every Christmas.

Singers Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) join sister act Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy Haynes (Vera-Ellen) to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont. There, they run into Gen. Waverly (Dean Jagger), the boys’ commander in World War II, who, they learn, is having financial difficulties; his quaint country inn is failing. So what’s the foursome to do but plan a yuletide miracle: a fun-filled musical extravaganza that’s sure to put Waverly and his business in the black!

I’ve been watching this movie since I was a kid. I know all the words to all the songs. It’s such a good movie, especially if you like musicals.

When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O’Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.

Home Alone came out when I was a kid, so I could really relate to this movie, I’m not sure that’s a good thing. Some days I wished my parents would disappear lol. This has turned into one of my daughters favorite movies. She’s only 2 and it’s a little weird when we are out eating and she starts yelling, I’m living alone lol

Buddy (Will Ferrell) was accidentally transported to the North Pole as a toddler and raised to adulthood among Santa’s elves. Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn’t fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father. As it happens, this is Walter Hobbs (James Caan), a cynical businessman. After a DNA test proves this, Walter reluctantly attempts to start a relationship with the childlike Buddy with increasingly chaotic results.

This movie has become a classic in our house. We watch it so many times during Christmas, we practically know all the words.

My all time favorite movie-

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations. However, things go awry quickly. His hick cousin, Eddie (Randy Quaid), and his family show up unplanned and start living in their camper on the Griswold property. Even worse, Clark’s employers renege on the holiday bonus he needs.

Who doesn’t love this movie??? I’ve watched it so much already that my husband is getting sick of it..lol.

There you have my top 5 Christmas movies!!!

Blogmas Day 7- Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies!!!


Hey everyone,

A lot of people have problems with gluten, I’m not one of them but I have a couple family members that deal with gluten issues. This recipe is perfect for anyone with a gluten intolerance. You can also make a low carb version of this recipe.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies-

2 cups peanut butter

2 cups raw cane sugar

3 eggs

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

Bake @ 350 for 15 minutes.

You can substitute Splenda for a low carb alternative. Some baking soda and powder contain gluten, so check the label to make sure it’s gluten free.

If you double the recipe, you will have a ton of cookies and may go into some sort of shock from all the sugar lol

These are so easy to make and are very yummy 😋< strong>What’s your favorite cookie?< strong>Thanks for reading my post!! Don’t forget to like, comment and follow < strong>
