30 Day Makeup Challenge Day 9

Hello yall!

Today I did not want to put any makeup on. I almost did not! But alas, I put some makeup on and I have to tell you, it really did make me feel like I was ready for the day. I dressed up to help with my children’s school store and I have to admit, it truly did make me feel better to put my makeup on instead of just being dressed up.¬† How do you feel when you put your makeup on? It used to be a rare occasion for me because I was not 100 % about wearing makeup anymore. I just¬† was so so about it.

I have noticed in the last two weeks that when I put my makeup on, I truly do feel better about my appearance. I have started to notice that I am actually trying to make sure my hair is ok and that I look good even when I have my home clothes on. I am noticing that I am looking in the mirror a lot¬†more. It kind of sucks for that. I used to be a mirror hog. I loved looking in the mirror. Well when you get babies running around, You do not always have time to stop and look in the mirror. My babies are growing up and getting older. I have a little more time to make sure that I look presentable.¬† If you are a momma, do you feel that it hinders you being able to look more “presentable” when babies won’t give you enough time to do it?

Well… Without further a due…

Makeup Challenge 30- Week 2

Hey Yall!

Sorry this post is late! My kids had a doctor appointment this morning. I barely got my makeup on this morning but did it! It is not very crazy today. Very minimal makeup but I got it on! I had a fantastic time this morning at the doctor, there was an elderly gentleman who asked me if I was American Indian. I happen to be Choctaw Indian. I never have people ask me this question. He talked the whole time how when he was younger, all he wanted to be was an Indian. I thought it was really neat that someone liked it so much! Kinda made me think, are you proud of your heritage? I never really bring up the fact that I am American Indian. But I just may do it.

Makeup Challenge Day 7- Confessions of a Military Spouse

Hello wonderful people!

I am feeling sooooo much better today! The allergy medicine must be kicking in! Today I decided that I wanted to do my makeup a little more dramatic today. I am still wearing my bum home clothes but with full makeup. Too funny!

I decided to look at that magic tool, oh come on you know Pintrest! I love that app on my phone and tablet. I am on there all the time! Today I looked for some inspiration. I decided that I would go with green eyeshadow and even make it a little smokey! I mean if I messed it up, the only people who would see it is my son and his friend! I am feeling better today and as a result, I wanted alot more fun makeup!

Today I am not going to be going far from home. I will be getting things organized around the house. I hope that if you are doing your own 30 day challenge, that you are doing good!

Without Further a due: Until Next time….

What are you favorite Fall/Winter Recipes?

I absolutely adore the fall! I love that we can eat more hearty meals that stick to your ribs. Moving from Cali to SC, we still have the heat coast to coast during the summer. The winter is alot cooler in Cali than in SC. I do not wish that I lived somewhere that it snowed alot. I love to visit places that get that cold!

My husband is very picky when it comes to eating food. He is like my baby. He will not eat anything green. Well I can not say anything because he has recently started eating Avacados ( Only if it is guacamole). He does not eat hardly any veggies except: Corn, Potatoes, and Mac n Cheese ( because in the south, Mac n Cheese is a veggie). We usually eat alot of chili, potato soup, pot roast, beans and rice, alot of cornbread.

What are some of your favorite meals? Care to share the recipe? I would love to feature you on here!

Until next time

Make up Challenge Day 6 Week 2

Hello everyone! Man o man what a weekend we had! We spent time with some good friends. You know you have those friends that you sit and talk and just have a good time and before you know it, it is 6 o’clock in the morning? Well we had that kind of morning yesterday! I truly believe that God brought us here to be friends with our previous neighbors from the base. Earlier this year we moved off the base into civilian housing. We are loving this housing a whole lot better since we can really be on our own!

I have to tell you, I feel horrible today! I realized that it is the allergies in the air making me feel bad! I just did not want to put make up on today but I did anyway because of my word, but it was not easy! I thought if I put make up on this morning that I would feel better! NOT! I still feel bad and can’t rub my eyes. This weekend was great to not have to worry about money! I loved that I could just be ‘free’.

Without further a due.. Here is meNow I gotta go fold the clothes behind me. See I threw them down and put my makeup on fast and took the picture to have the post up. I may need a nap today! ( btw, do you love the fake smile today? I sooo tried to look not sick ha ha)


Until next time…

30 Day Makeup Challenge – Confessions of a Military Spouse

Hello! Happy Friday!

I am so multi-tasking today. Been on the run! I am now making dinner and posting on the blog. I hope that you are all going to have amazing plans for the weekend. I mean even if it means just sitting around and hanging out on the couch.. it will and can be amazing! Today concludes the first 5 days of wearing makeup every day. It was easier today to get the makeup on my face and in fact, I was kind of like.. ” I got to get my makeup on today”. It was nice to go around town today with a made up face. I colored my hair last night too. I love light highlights during the spring and summer. During the Fall and Winter I LOVE Dark hair. I have naturally Dark Brown hair. I used¬† foam on my hair. It was difficult for me to color my hair properly. I actually missed a spot and I have to redo it¬† in a few spots. I gotta get running, my daughter has ballet class on Fridays….. Why I picked the night to relax to do dance class, the world may never know. I hope you have an amazing memorable day!

ME Day 5!

I leave you this friday and I hope that you again have a fabulous day!

Until next time…


30 Day Makeup Challenge Day 4- Confessions of a Military Spouse

Hello! Thanks for checking back again! I am just so excited today! We have had an amazing blessing for our family happen over night and I can not believe how amazing God is. We have been praying so hard for a miracle and it has happened. I am going to keep my blog post short and sweet today as I am in a time crunch. I am heading to a bible study for Operation 31 Wife. WE are talking today about being thankful! How thankful are you today that God allowed you to breathe life? How thankful are you for your situations, either good or bad? I hope today you can take a moment and think… How thankful am I today?

Without further a due…

Today I am wearing just a light pink eye shadow, full face otherwise. I was not going too crazy today as I went to volunteer at my children’s school. I also dressed up a little bit! I am wearing a black dress with pink under shirt and black tights.

Remember try to be thankful for something today.. even if it is just the fact that you have the sun shining outside. God is faithful and he will take care of you!

30 Day Makeup Challenge- Confessions of a Military Spouse

Well it is now day number 3. I am feeling a little run down today. I feel sick and I bet it is due to the weather changing so fast. One day it is hot and the next day it is so cold. I am excited though because today I put some jeans on and it is one size smaller than the size  I have been wearing. It just gave me the boost that I needed today to get going! I am so excited! I put my makeup on, it was easier than it has been.My husband has been encouraging me with my make up challenge. He thinks it may be an expensive experiment but he is very supportive none the less. I am so incredibly blessed to have an amazing husband.

Today I did my hair ( well slicked it down with hair spray) and got dressed. Today was the first day that I felt like I should be getting more dressed than normal. I am not leaving the house at all but it is nice to feel like I am dressed and ready for my work day ahead. A little hard to explain. So without further a due… Here is day 3!

I would love to hear about your progress if you are accepting the challenge and going with 30 days of Makeup! How is changing your day? How are you feeling when you put makeup on?

Until next time…..

Wednesday Work At Home- Confessions of a Military Spouse

Who would not love that dream job of working at home? I know that I love the fact that I can work from home. I have always wanted to be my own boss since I was in high school I always took business classes in high school to get going too. I hope that I can help to inspire you to find the work at home job or business you would love to have!

Today we are going to discuss the Work At Home Opportunity! We have all seen the Direct Sales businesses out there. There are thousands of these businesses that will help you to become independent! If you love make-up there is Mary Kay, BeautiControl, Avon, et. If you love kitchen supplies there is Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Tupperware, Etc. If you love Candles there is Party Lite, Gold Canyon Candles, Scentsy, Etc. I have researched these companies for many many years. When my son was born in 2005, I wanted to work from home more than anything. I wanted to make a full-time income working part-time. I loved this idea. Unfortunately it was not true. You do have to put in 40 hours to receive the payment that you will receive.  I really do not like knowing that someone is making 75% of the work that I am putting 100% in. Now do not get me wrong. I love Direct sales companies. In fact I rep for two of them! I love Scentsy and the scents you can fill your home with. I love the company because they are very family oriented and want the best for everyone!

I love Tupperware too! I love the organization that you will have in your home, not just kitchen! I have been with Tupperware for about 5 years now. I love the company and how they are there to make sure that you can reach your potential. I love the pay scale and that you can run your business how you want to!

Most direct sale companies have a compensation plan of about 20-25% of your sales. You pay upfront for a business kit which usually includes everything you need to get started. There are usually fast start programs to help you become the most successful with your new company. These companies truly do have the best intention in making sure you make the most money with the quality products. You can usually have a website where you are able to have your business open for 24 hours. You usually are able to have training from your directors, upline, etc. They can help you get going. One of the best things about direct sales business is it is pretty much cookie cutter. If you follow the  tips that the successful give you, you yourself will be successful! It is pretty easy!

Now with any at home job, you have to do work in order to make a sale. You can not just sit back and say ” yay I sell xxxxxxx, I will be making money in no time.” You actually are the marketing, accountant, sales man( woman), manager, Delivery person, and coach. You have to make sure your host know how to host their xxxxxx company party!

If you are interested in either of these two businesses, I would love to help you with your new journey! You can email me or you can visit my Tupperware site or my Scentsy  site and learn more about these amazing opportunities!

If you have any questions regarding business, please let me know! I would love to work with you and help you start your new business venture!


Until next time…..
