GIVEAWAY: Mia Mariu Makeup Gift Pack! -CLOSED-


Winner

I'm one of those people that gets asked if they are tired a lot.  Most of the time I'm not :)...so I know I just look like crap.  I went to a beauty counter at a mall and told them this and they did me up.  Did I look awake? yes.  Did I look like I could squirt you from a flower on my lapel? YES!   For me it's about wearing a little more makeup than I usually do, and choosing the right colors.  I still remember years ago my Mom asking me if I had a black eye...lol..I didn't LOL
Anyway, I was excited to try out Mia Mariu Makeup products!
Mia Mariu’s high performance products are formulated with the most natural ingredients available helping you achieve vibrant beauty and health inside and out. Each unique product fuses nature and technology by combining the highest quality botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and peptides. The result is healthy products that provide a perfect balance that reflects itself through youthful, healthy, beautiful, glowing skin and renewed energy and vitality, at an exceptional value. Mia offers natural skin care, professional makeup artist quality mineral cosmetics and brushes to Reveal Your Unique Shade of Beauty!
Here is what I tried out and will also be included in the giveaway! Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara Black and love it because it isn't clumpy or hard to apply.
Loose Mineral Shadow Liner Marino and the Precision Shadow Liner Brush.  At first when I saw the Shadow liner I thought it was too sparkly.  I'm not ready to look like a Solid Gold dancer.  But I tried it and it was perfect!  Not glittery looking at all so its great for daytime use :)  And I really like the color!  I've never used loose mineral as a liner before.  The brush is great and the perfect size so it goes on right and really easily.  Honestly if it's not easy, I don't use it :):)  So thankfully all of the Mia Mariu products of mine will get used.
Mineral Blush Maria Bonita is a great color and it stays on pretty good!  I rarely have to reapply during the day and it is made of pure natural minerals!

One reader will win the a Mia Mariu Makeup Gift Pack! A $60 Value! US only

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
