Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara

Glittergurl recently received a full size sample of Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara and I'm sharing her honest opinion below.

If you haven't heard of Younique, it's a direct sales marketing company that sells beauty products for women almost exclusively through the use of social media. Hosting a Younique Party is as easy as sharing a link!

No more expensive lash extensions or falsies. Younique 3D Fiber Lash Mascara provides natural looking length and volume to your eyelashes, up to 300%. The packageackage comes with two separate bottles, the transplanting gel and the all-natural fibers and is as easy to use as your regular mascara.

 Nothing on!

Step 1- any brand of mascara. I use cheap wet n wild!

See!
 


Steps 2 &3- apply even coat of transplanting gel...IMMEDIATELY before the gel has time to dry, apply fibers. (I do one eye at a time!)

Step 4- Seal the fibers with the gel.


Final results!!! Love love love love it!! So easy to apply!

Pumpkin Pancakes

I'm not Betty Crocker, never have been, never will be. Lately a gourmet meal for me consists of popping a Lean Cuisine into the microwave. Breakfast is more often than not, two frozen waffles in the toaster oven and then topped with raspberry preserves.

This morning I was feeling creative like I should really make my husband something a little different for breakfast because, well just because.

With Halloween just around the corner (and I really have to keep reminding myself that because the weather man says it will be 96 again today) I thought I'd give pumpkin pancakes the old college try.

How hard could it be?

I already have an industrial size bag of Krusteaz Pancake Mix, pumpkin pie spice, and a can of pumpkin.

Dump all that in a bowl and mix.

Hmmm.

It's kind of doughy.

Add water.

Ok better.

Pour onto hot frying pan, flip and voila.


They were good! Not the best presentation but they were good. In 20 something years my husband has never once complained about any meal I've set in front of him. That right there is GOLD peeps!

For those of you wanting to try this at home I'm sure there are a gajillion recipes you can google, but this is what I used:

2 cups pancake mix (like I said I used Krusteaz because Costco people!)
1/2 a can of pumpkin (15oz can)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
About a cup of water more or less

With enough butter and syrup anything will taste good ;)


This is what my pumpkin pancakes looked like (HA! in my dreams!) (Picture from internet used without permission)

Celebrating Milestones #Netflix #StreamTeam October 2014

 Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Netflix, all opinions are my own

October's topic for Stream Team is celebrating milestones. I think it's a very appropriate topic for my family as both GlitterGurl and I celebrate birthdays in October. Birthdays are the best milestone I can think of right now because as we get older, milestones are few and far between. 
Whynot and I have shared a few biggies in the past year. Moving clear across the country, buying a new house and getting new jobs are a few. Kids, on the other hand always have something exciting to celebrate. Baseball trophies, a new grade, a lost tooth or a good report card.
In recognition of "mini milestones," Netflix has compiled a list of movies and TV episodes that highlight a variety of these achievements. Whatever "firsts" your family is celebrating this fall, Netflix can relate.

It's a Netflix Kind of Night - #Netflix #StreamTeam September 2014

 Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Netflix, all opinions are my own

Back in the day, Friday Night Family Night meant setting the VCR to record Full House, Family Matters, and Step by Step and stepping out to Chuckie Cheese for Pizza and video games. Then on Saturday nights when the shows were not so age appropriate for my little ones we watched the shows we recorded the night before. It was win win!

Fast forward to the 21st century and Netflix makes it super easy to choose age appropriate shows for your Family Nights. Including all-new episodes ofTurbo: FAST—the first-ever Netflix original series for kids.

As a continuation of Turbo, DreamWorks’ popular flick about an ‘underdog’ snail who kicks into overdrive with his miraculous power of super-speed, Turbo: FAST follows Turbo and his pals on their pursuit of big dreams, as they continue to amp up everything to the extreme.
