I LOVE Younique 3D Fiber Lashes!!


Look at my BIG Lashes!


The Lashes on the left are 3D Fiber Lashes. 
The Lashes on the right are coated with regular mascara. 
Those Lashes are ALL mine.
Looks pretty Younique to ME. ;)


It all started on Facebook when my friend Debbie ANNOYED me with all those 3D Fiber Lash pictures but SHE WAS right! BAM!!! LASSSSSSHES!

Debbie and I have been friends since we were 12 years old so I knew when I saw her pics on Facebook that she was on to something. When she explained to me that a portion of her commissions were going towards combating Domestic Violence I was SOLD to try this product.

When I first heard about 3D Fiber Lashes I thought it was some sort of false eye-lash product that involved false lashes and lots of messy glue. It is a bit misleading when you see “Fiber Lashes” plastered everywhere. But, I can tell you that is NOT what the 3D Fiber Lashes are all about.

Younique 3D Fiber Lashes are NOT false or fake lashes. The product is actually 1 tube of mascara and 1 tube of tea tree fibers. All you do is coat your lashes with the mascara, then coat your lashes again with the tea tree fibers, and then run another coat of mascara over the fibers to keep them in place.

The fibers are these small soft natural tea tree flakes that add a little bit of pizzazz to your lashes. You can manage the intensity by how you apply your mascara. Yesterday I applied a light coat for a daytime look and the application lasted all day so there is a lot of longevity with this product.

See the picture of me and my husband? That was the night we celebrated his 40th birthday bowling with our friends. My lashes pack a punch in that picture even though I didn’t apply too much of the product. It just really makes your lashes POP! I LOVE THAT!!

People ask, “So what’s the trick?” There’s NO trick whatsoever. You purchase the mascara and TA-DA!!



If you’re interested in trying Younique 3D Fiber lashes please consider ordering through my friend Debbie’s website: www.LashesAgainstDomesticViolence.com

Debbie is a passionate fun-loving quirky girlfriend I grew up with whom I absolutely LOVE. She will answer all your questions and even share picture swatches of color if you’d like to see what the products look like. She is also very honest about what she thinks will work with your routine too.

A lot of people always ask me what’s in it for me by writing up this blog post. Nothing is in it for me. Debbie is my friend of many years who I LOVE and I wanted to help her out by sharing this great product with you.

I’m not hosting a virtual party because those tend to expire at some point. To be honest, I don’t have time to sell the product myself or I would! It’s THAT good!

If you’d like to try the product I hope you consider ordering it through her website. She didn’t pay me to say that and I haven’t received free product or discounts from her at all. I just wanted to help a friend get the word out about what I believe is super cool eye-makeup.

What can I say? I’m a makeup girl and I’m all about the mascara! Go BIG or Go Home – Right!? ORDER AWAY!!

I think I need blog therapy

I think I need blog therapy...

Seriously!

I don’t write like I used to.

What is up with that!?

It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about.

Quite the opposite really because I have a lot on my mind!

I’ve been holding back on you guys – I really have.

Let me ask you something:

Is there something you’d like to know about me?

Do you have any questions about me or anything I’ve written?

Now’s your chance to hear it straight from the horses mouth!

See that form on the right hand side of my blog??

It says: What’s Up?

It asks for your name, e-mail address, and message.

Send me a message or leave a comment.

Let me know you still read my blog or that you’re still thinking about me.

Ask me whatever you want. (Keep it clean people!)

Who knows…?

Maybe you’ll ask me something I can write about.

Your note may just get me out of my blog rut.

This could be a form of blog therapy… Ya know?

Are You So Foolish?

You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?  Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”    Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”  So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.   For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”  Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.”  The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.”  Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”  He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.

Signs of Real Repentance


People sometimes tell you they will change when they won't and that they are sorry when they are not. Here are some of the signs of real repentance:

  • The person will take full responsibility without blaming someone else or making excuses.
  • The person will be self-motivated to do whatever it takes to change and to heal the relationship.
  • The person will be able to hear and care about your concerns including your emotions about the problems without getting defensive. There will be genuine remorse for your pain.
  • The person’s behavior will be different and if there is a slip to the old behavior, they will acknowledge it and work to heal the distrust that results.

You can watch how the person acts to see if the repentance is real.

This Is NOT My Problem


Toxic people lie, triangulate, twist the truth, and then lie some more. After all, they have to keep up their appearances. Their flying monkeys wear blinders and stupidly do their bidding OR they adjust because they know if they go against the grain there will be hell to pay. This is not my problem.

The Reality of the Situation


Detaching doesn't mean you stuff your emotions. You face the reality of the situation, feel the emotions, and then recognize that you have choices. You recognize that even if the other person is making bad choices, you don't have to fix them. You recognize that even if the other person is upset, angry, or unhappy that you don't have to be. You recognize that everything the other person says and does isn't about you and doesn't have to affect you. You recognize that you can choose how to live your life. ~Karla Downing
