Covergirl Face Make Up Review



Recently I was sent a couple of products to try for Covergirl. I got  COVERGIRL + Olay FaceLift Effect and Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer. I love makeup and love trying new products out all the time. I own way more makeup than anyone should have but I just love it.

 The COVERGIRL + Olay FaceLift Effect was a bit lighter than what I normally wear which is odd since it was medium and I am always so pale. But once I was completely made up, it wasn't too bad. I loved how the foundation felt on my skin and how it moistened it. Now that I am in my 40's my skin tends to be a bit drier. I can't say that I noticed any facelifting effect but I don't have but a couple of eye wrinkles so that could be a factor.

I have terrible dark circles under my eyes. Its part heredity and partly health issues. People are always commenting on them and wanting to know if I am ok. I used the Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer before church and I got so many compliments on how good I looked and how I must be feeling better. Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer did a great job of masking my dark circles. I explained to the women that it was my new Cover Girl + Olay De-Puffer Concealer I was trying out for Bzz. I just let the men think I looked that good naturally lol.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from Bzzz . Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

A Robertson Family Christmas Book Review and Giveaway.



Title: A Robertson Family Christmas
Author: Miss Kay Robertson with Travis Thrasher
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
ISBN: 978-1-4143-9820-4

I don't really watch Duck Dynasty but I do catch it once in a while. I am not much of a tv sort of person.  I love this family and the foundation they have built their family on, faith, family and fun. I would love to have a family like theirs and I think this book appeals to that part of me. The story line is a a young boy who is a product of divorced parents and he mostly seems to feel lost and invisible to his family. His mother enters him in a contest to spend Christmas break with the Robertsons. He gets an up close and personal view of a whole new life style and what its like to be in a family that is centered around Christ. I liked how the book kept it real and you knew Hunter wasn't miraculously going to go home to a happy Christian home full of love. I liked the advice from Willie that basically Hunter needed to be the change he wanted to see in the world.

This book is a work of fiction but the writing is so on point that you can see how it would have played out in real life. To Hunter with his broken family, a mom who is too busy and a dad who has forgotten he has 2 sons, the Robertson's must seem like aliens. Nothing in his life has prepared him for such a radical switch of lifestyles. I think the book does a great job getting a message across without beating you in the face with it. I would love to spend some time with the Robertson's and see their life up close and in action.

 I liked the view into the Robertson family life and how someone from the outside might see them. I would have liked to see more of the family brought into the story line but it was still a good book. It took me about an hour to read it and I didn't want to stop during that time and resented interruptions.  It would have been nice if the recipes were in the back that were cooked in the book.  I think the audience for this book is probably intended to be teenagers but I honestly loved this book and would like to see a series of some sort.  I would recommend this book to others.


Now for the best part. I have a hardback copy of this book to share with one of you. If you want an opportunity to read this great book for yourself or to share with someone else just enter the giveaway below. The giveaway ends on October 31st 2014 at 11:59 pm EST. You must be in the US due to shipping costs. I will email you and you must respond with your mailing information within 48 hours.  ( I had so much trouble with my last giveaway, getting people to respond that I am adding another option in the giveaway for you to enter your mailing address if you want, that way I don't have to wait for you to respond.)



*Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the Tyndale Blog Network.

Madonna and her very horrible, terrible no good day.

Tonight is the opening for the new movie Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.  I wanted to share my own version of my  terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. I was headed to the pharmacy to get my prescriptions for my back problems when the car started acting badly. I pulled off the road and the car died. Naturally I had no phone numbers plugged into my cell phone for towing service. My daughter went into the hotel nearby to ask for their phone book. At this point I discover that my cell phone is dead. The first company we call that I had used before, no longer tows cars. Thankfully they gave me a referral number. After my car was loaded on the tow truck I saw a huge oil spill under it. So I am pretty certain it threw a rod and I can't afford another engine.  I get home and was going to call my supervisor about working today. My house phone is also dead :( For some reason the charger wasn't charging the phone. And finally my laptop died again. I am not going to lie, I had a meltdown and cried. Now, I am going to have to find a super cheap used car and see if my boss will loan me enough to get the car.
