Things I Love!

First, I must get the most important things out of the way first: I love my God, my boys and the rest of my family, my friends and my job that allows me many indulgences! Oh yeah, I also love how my boys smell! They have their very own sweet scent that makes me fall in love with them over and over again! Who knew 2 guys could make me such a mush pot! LOL

O.K. so I am gonna copy my little sis a bit here, as she has turned me onto some really great products . . . then some products I just discovered myself . . . (after much trial and error)


Dust It Hair Power

OMGoodness, while having my hair cut, I had the opportunity to share this product with Ms. Janie Johns (HS friends mom) who has very fine hair. This will give all the limp locks of the world the most amazing volume. It is very user friendly and very unlikely that you will mess up while using it (unless you just go crazy with it). This is not a product for thick hair unless you really wanna BIG it up!

Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer in SIN

This has gotta be one of the best kept secrets to date! This product is designed to be glue for your eyeshadow, but can also be worn alone. For anyone that has a difficult time keeping your shadow in place . . . . This is a must have! I wear it alone and with shadow. When I use it with shadow, I promise you, go to sleep with the shadow on and you will wake up with it still perfectly intact! This product comes in 2 shades (SIN) is my pick because it has a light goldish, champagne color to it.

Tinted Mineral Veil by Bare Essentials

This product is the perfect mix of color and perfection. For anyone who has used mineral veil in the past, you know it is a very light color (although it goes on transparent), I still felt that it would make my foundation appear lighter than it was. The Tinted Mineral Veil leaves your skin flawless with just a hint of color, so if you do not wanna wear make up, just swirl, tap and buff. I just bought this Friday so I am still in the trial phase with it, but so far so good!

Dermesse Skin Care

After my Dermaplaning, my spa consultant recommended that I begin a good skin care regimen to assist the Dermaplaning procedure so she prescribed Dermesse. I was a little concerned in the beginning because you use so many products, but as I have been using the system for the past 6-7 weeks, I have indeed notice a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin. My system consists of a 7 products that are used either 2 times a day or some only once. For anyone that needs to reduce or wants to start protecting against sun damage, I encourage you to go to their website and look at the products. I love, love this whole system.

Smashbox Photo Finish Lite

This is the best makeup primer I have ever used (I had used the photo finish regular in the past but it was much toooo oily for me). First, I am very oily and most primers just tend to make it even worse. This product makes the skin flawless (you can even wear it alone) and does not add to the oil production. It makes any product you add after the primer, go on so smooth. If you go to Ulta, you can try before you buy! It also helps keep your makeup in place all day too.
As always, I will be the first to admit to being a product JUNKIE! It is in my genetic make up so I refuse to apologize for it. On the flip side, you really should come check out my product closet that holds all the other wonderful products I have purchased in the past that have turned out to be not so wonderful! My main passion (aside from clothes, purses and shoes) would be hair products and make up! Thanks little sis for the turn on to the Dust It! It works wonders . . . .

PEOPLE you know and PEOPLE you shouldn't

O.K. this is gonna be a rant, but Jes says that you feel so much better after you just write it. So here it goes . . . . . Some people just irk the crap out of me, you know the kind of people that say they are your friend, but will so screw you as soon as they get the chance, or the kind of people that portray themselves as one way, but will not hesitate to start a RUMOR as soon as humanly possible. This has so been brewing with me for several months now, and I guess it got the best of me today. I just do not get why it is so hard for people to be a friend?? I mean dang, is it really hard to be a true and faithful friend without hunting for boogers?? This is the main reason why I do NOT befriend females very often, because I have been screwed by my SO CALLED friends more time than I am proud to admit (due to my stupidity in trusting these people). I also find that so many times, the friendship is mostly one-sided with it always being about the other person (what they need, how they feel, what they are going thru) without any regard to exactly what is happening in your world. I have been told more often than not that I am much to caring about others feeling and thoughts and worry too much about if someone is mad, sad, upset etc. So, with this being TYPED, I am now coming into my own . . . . New Year's Resolution . . . . Just STOP! STOP already! 2010 is all about MEEEEE, MEEEE, MEEEEE! This is so much needed. I am and will continue to be happy with exactly who I am, the choices good and bad that I have made and any future decisions that I make that affect me and me alone. OK Jes, if you read this, TA-DA . . . you are right! I feel mucho better. Much Love WT

The Best Christmas Present Ever!!!

Let me tell you about my Jessi. She has to be the most amazing little sister anyone could have. I cannot begin to express how much she means to me. I am in constant awe of her beliefs, her ethics, her love of people that she is close to and so much more. Tomorrow is her birthday and it seems like yesterday she was being born. I moved to MS when Con (my mom) was pregnant with Jessi. I was a typical 15 year old girl from Tennessee. I moved here to live with my Dad and Connie after I finished my 8th grade year of school. I left 3 little brothers in TN when I moved here, so I was very excited that there would soon be a little one to occupy my time. I had always wanted a sister, after all, I had 3 brothers and with each one of them, I had prayed that they would be a girl. Obviously, it was not the plan. So, when it was confirmed that she was a girl, I was sooo excited. It was going to be like I had my own baby as I am almost 16 years older than her. We went into labor with Jes on Christmas Eve. Of course, Dad panicked, as Connie's water had broken he thought she was fixing to have her right at that moment. NOT. We get to the hospital to wait patiently on our beautiful little girl who had her own idea of when and what time she wanted to meet all of us. I think if she had it her way, she would have spent a little more time in the womb. We went thru 18 long hours of labor with no baby, so finally they performed a C-Section and the rest is history! The most beautiful, caring, loving and nurturing girl became my most treasured Christmas Present. I have watched over the past 23 years as this little loving baby has grown into a loving young woman who now is beginning to start a family of her own and I cannot be any prouder of her even if she were my very own child. In my heart, she is mine. I love her as I love my own 2 boys. On her wedding day in Cabo, I realized that she was not the little girl anymore, that she was now a woman, a wife and one day would be a mother. You know, I guess when you are around someone you love on a regular basis, you seem to take them for granted and don't always share your feelings with them. So maybe if she reads this, she will know how much I love her.
