~Haul~ E.L.F. Cosmetics...

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Call it rant....but I can't buy E.L.F. products like everyone else can in their local Target:( Local as in 30 miles 45 miles away....and they MIGHT have a sprinkling of e.l.f. items but not a full wall like some Tar-jays. Sheesh.

I braved another e.l.f. order haul...the last one, over two years ago, was not good. I waited two weeks to receive it. I got this order in less then four days. Every since then, I've been picking stuff here and there from Walgreens, Big Lots and my new makeup hot spot, good ol' Dollar General.

Here's the haul!!!

I got two of the Blending Brushes, an Eye Crease brush and the Studio Powder brush.I see alot of girls on YT use the Powder Brush as a foundation brush and I can attest to that claim that it is an AWESOME foundation brush!!!
I also got all three of the Eyelid Primers. I've used the the basic shade and champagne colored one and they work really good so far.
These two new products caught my eye. I got the High Definition Concealer Setting Powder and Mist & Set Spray. Using them as we soon!!!
I must be obsessed with red polish because I got Smokin' Hot and a hot peach shade in Party Peach.....
Lastly, I got two of the Matte Lip Colors. The nude shade is a no good for me. Wayyyy too light, not even workable. The red is perfect, just perfect!!! Also, got one of the Waterproof Eyeliner Pens in Black.

Starting to feel my way through e.l.f. again....Do you have any favorite e.l.f. products that I should pick up? Let me know in the comments so I can start another "wishlist" maybe even a small haul!!!

Winning Big in Online Auctions!

It’s the thrill of the sport. It’s the passion behind winning. It’s the competitive drive. Wondering what I’m talking about it? Bidding on online auctions and winning awesome goodies! Yes, placing a small bid, like on a penny auction, watching the price and want for the object rise brings out emotions of every kind. I personally love penny auctions because it gives you a change to start low and bid in different increments until you are either right where you a want to be or sometimes over your head! LOL!

In the last 10 years, ever since I discovered online auctions, I’ve bidded on and won the gamut of items. My favorite items would include a Betsy Johnson hand bag, a brand new discontinued Victoria’s Secret perfume (remember when they did the Horoscope fragrances in 2000?), a Kate Spade pencil bag complete with pencils and authentic MAC cosmetics. Some of my key tips would be to start as low as the bidding will go, even if it’s a penny and take it slow. If the auction isn’t’ up for a week, watch it for a while after that first bid. Normally, the last couple of hours of the auction are the key ones but you want to test the waters by bidding early.  Hope that these tips and tricks help you in your next pursuit online when winning that ultimate must have item!

A Big Thank You To Great Plumbers!

On a hot July day in 2011, I went into the bathroom to find that toilet was overflowing. As much as I’m a confident woman, a Jill of all trades…I was stopped in my tracks by all the water. What do I do? Apparently, one of the kids that I have my “possession”, flushed, flushed and FLUSHED the toilet until Lake Superior was on my bathroom floor. I didn’t even hesitate, I went old school and open up the yellow pages of the city phone book, picked the biggest ad and called that plumber!

Nearly an hour later, two gentlemen came to the house and assessed the problem. It was more than a clogged toilet but some clogged pipes. There was no fumbling or second guessing because those plumbers went immediately to work! Somewhere outside there is a “manhole” that’s in the yard and one of the guys pulled out:

-a facecloth
-two toy cars
-a plastic ball
-a fingernail clipper

I was speechless!! LOL!The plumbing professionals had the problem done and solved in about two hours. The plumbers left the bathroom clean and yard back the way it was. They even told me that the bill would be in the mail and call if there were any other problems. A wonderful sigh of relief blanketed my home that July day. Thank God for reliable, professional plumbers!
