Everyday Minerals Sample Kit and mini haul






















Hi beauty addicts

I really like EDM they have wonderful prices and they have a free sample kit where you only pay shipping and handling. I thought I had found my perfect foundation in Winged Butter but it's summer and now I can also wear Buttered Tan. Anyway I'm still trying to find the "right" color foundation. The finishes also make the colors different. For example Winged butter in Original Glo will be different in Matte. Here are the pics of my little haul. Let me know if you have questions.
I don't have any pictures to post but this is just an update. I feel very good today and have been for a couple of days now. My two fav nieces are coming over today and we are going to detox our bodies. My niece is having her quinceanera and needs to have clear skin so we are going to try to achieve that while she's here. That means no junk food, sodas and a very limited amount of red meat. UGH although I love red meat I know it may not be the best for my health. It would not hurt if in this process we could loose some weight too. I'll keep you guys posted as to how this turns out. I might even take a picture of my niece as a before and after to see if the food that she eats and the products she uses will clear her acne.
I was asked as to why I did not demonstrate the SSC colors on my face. I hate having my picture taken I'm far from being vain and I just hate it. What I can do is put the colors on my niece and see how you guys like it on her. I can post some pics later. TTFN

I believe in Karma and I do think that if you do good to others, others will do good to you. People might not understand me or they think they know me but just when they think they do I will give them a run for their money. As of today many things will be different. I vow to only speak and care for those who speak and care for me. I do not wish anybody any harm or ill will in any way shape or form because I know that bad energy will come back to me. So, I will sit back and do the best thing that I do, I will wait. I will wait and let things happen however they will happen but I will NOT be bullied into anything that I do not want to do. I will not be persuaded to change my mind. I guess as long as people talk about you, good or bad the fact is they are talking about you and that means you are still on their mind. I will continue to be myself and I will never ever change for anyone. Either you like me how I am or you don't.
I am no shrinking violet.

Trip to Disneyland
















So my husband and I took our 6 year old nephew and his brother my 12 year old godson to Disneyland. It was my nephew Michael's first time at Disneyland and he had such a great time. Here are a couple of pics from that day.

SSC Color of the Seasons Kit
























































I finally got my kit. I realized it would help other people if I posted pictures of the makeup. I'm really glad this time around that they included two new products that SSC launched recently. The colors IMO are gorgeous. They are extremly wearable for summer. I love, love, love the lipgloss and lipstick. The gloss is the perfect shade on it's on a gorgeous gold color and the lipstick is the perfect peachy nude. The blush is so pretty kind of a peachy bronzy color. The bronze is not too sparkly which is nice for a change. The eye palette has four colors a med matte brown, a light blue that is so pretty it goes on really sheer and a light golden color for highlight and a medium gray with shimmer that can be used as a subtle smokey eye. I'm so glad I got this and will use all of it. I forgot to take a picture of the purse that comes with it, really cute that you can take to the beach. It also comes with the bellarose foundation and an eyeshadow brush and the regular brush for the mineral makeup. Let me know what you think of this collection.










For reference I'm a MAC NC40. But I did the swatches on the inside of my arm which is lighter than an NC40, any questions ask away.
