Have any of you heard of tapping?  And no, I’m not talking about tap dance!  lol!  It’s where you tap certain pressure points  to eleviate stress.   Check out the latest YouTube Video from one of my FAVORITE bloggers and health/yoga/fitness instructor and all the other hats she wears, Rebekah from BexLife…





Tuesdays with TED!

Why you will fail to have a great career?

Larry Smith

This is a great TED talk exposing some of the crazy and ridiculous excuses people come up with as to why they haven’t met their goals and why they aren’t pursuing their dreams and passions.

Product Review! Younique

I have been hearing about this 3D mascara for a few weeks now, supposedly it is good enough to replace false lashes…I honestly haven’t worn false lashes in 5 or 6 years but only because it’s a pain in the arse to put them on…

So I saw that my sister was having an online party for them and I put an order in.

I normally wear Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Mascara and love it!


After using Younique 3D fiber lashes (I put 2 layers on…)I can say that I could probably get close to the same effect using my Rimmel mascara…however, it would require way more than 2 layers and my lashes would be totally weighed down..and with regular mascara after so many layers it just gets too clumpy.

Top: nothing on Middle: my regular mascara Bottom: 2 layers of 3D fiber lashes

It was worth the purchase and I can definitely see myself using this product frequently!  It runs about $35 (I’ve heard it lasts about 2 months)…so not something I would buy too often, but if you don’t want that heavy clumpy feeling from multiple layers of mascara and you’re tired of messing around with false lashes, Younique is a great alternative!   🙂



Update: cleaning is super easy with this product! Here is also another comparison pic. 🙂

Moving = Declutter Opportunity!!

As much as I dread having to move next month, I’m also a little excited.  I’m going to be **hopefully, fingers crossed** be moving from an apartment into a house.  I’m excited for more room and a yard, even if it’s a small one!  🙂  I’m SOOOO tired of lugging groceries up the stairs every time and can’t wait for that to be over! I don’t mind living in a 2 story and going up and down stairs, that’s never been an issue…I just don’t want to go up stairs with 10 bags of groceries in my hands (because I refuse to make a 2nd trip… 😉 )  

I’m also a little excited to lighten the load a bit.  I have already gone through both mine and my daughter’s bathrooms and gotten rid of all of our things that we haven’t used in the past 6 months (why I was holding onto sunscreen & makeup from 2 years ago I have no idea!) and I recently went through her clothes and toys and donated the unwanted or overgrown.  Now I need to go through my closet and the rest of our “stuff”.  The best part of moving, at least when you have plenty of notice that you’re moving, is that you can take the time to go through everything.  I hate packing and unpacking, so the last thing I want to do is pack something that I STILL won’t use or pack something that as soon as I unpack it I toss it.   I’ll try to remember to take a picture of everything that I get rid of before the big move!   For tonight I couldn’t help but get started on my school binders.  I organized them and threw out material that I just don’t need anymore.  On the outside, I listed the subjects inside of each binder to make it WAY easier for me to refer back to in the future.  I credit One Organized Mama, Janel, for getting me excited to organize!  https://m.facebook.com/OneOrganizedMama

This isn’t all of them but most of them…
