Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay
This has been a week of highs and lows and I am not even going to talk about the zany weather. Life is so very fragile, I am asking each of you to tightly hug and tell someone that you love them tonight before the clock strikes midnight! I also want to say, “thank you” for being part of my life, I will probably need to borrow some of your strength as time goes on…but we’ll talk about that later, in the meantime. please say an extra prayer for the “Blake Family”.
Can you believe that this is the 10th Weekend Wind-Down Party? It has been so much fun, reading, sharing and laughing at all the wonderful posts each week.
BTW – this is the last weekend to enter to win the $50 Gift Certificate to Midnight Velvet!

Hello Friends, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!
As an Avon Independent Sales Rep I probably have more cosmetics than I need but I like trying new products so that I can spread the word to my customers or answer any questions they may have. I don’t particualarly like to spend a lot of money on makeup and usually stick to an under $5.00 price point but I was curious about the new Mega Effects Mascara.
The $10 cost made me a bit apprehensive as well as the fact that it looked a little more complicated to apply and I don’t have a lot of time in the morning, but I bit the bullet and ordered it. The first morning I tried it I ended up poking myself in the eye and getting smudges on my lower lashes, I was trying to use it like a traditional brush.
The WonderBrush handle is like a mini paint brush that is adjustable, and is shaped to fit the natural curve of your lashes.
I am going to be honest and say that it took two mornings for me to become comfortable in using it but now it’s just as quick to apply as any other mascara. It provides great volume, there’s no clumping, and it’s easy to remove at night.
This was definitely worth the price.
Yesterday I received the 3rd and from what I’ve read, the final FREE Beauty Bag from Target. This one is definitely my favorite, a 6″x 5″, vinyl SOHO Beauty Bag in leopard print, perfect for the season and can easily be wiped clean. It wasn’t until later this morning that I realized it matched my OOTD perfectly so I had a co-worker take this picture.
Inside the beauty bag were the following sample size items:
Included was also a booklet of coupons with an expiration date 12/31/12

If you ever shopped at a five Below you’d know that in addition to the toys, school supplies, candy, plastic wear, swimwear, iPhone/laptop/computer accessories, blah blah blah blah blah, they also carry nailwear and cosmetics on the cheap. I stopped in last evening and picked up a few items to add to my already excessive nail polish collection! Unfortunately, my nails were weaken by a Gel manicure done at a salon so I have been doing my own and I like the new colors and products currently on the market. fiveBelow also carries a brand of the Magnetic nail polish which I would like to try, but they only had one bottle and it was a color that I didn’t particularly like so I’ll check another store over the weekend.
Sally Hansen HD Hi Def Nailwear – $2.00
