This Mascara is EPIC, Literally.

When I first heard about Younique, ladies could NOT stop raving about the 3D Fiber Lash mascara that we’re exclusively known for. As businesses grow, they always get better & man, oh, man – did we!

The newly released Moodstruck Epic Mascara is living up to its name. I mean LOOK at my lashes! Epic? Uh, yeah.

It helps gives my lashes a nicely separated, voluminous look. I prefer to use it alone, but it can be paired with the still amazing Moodstruck 3d Fiber Lashes+.

Low density bristles grips lashes at the root, giving flaunt-worthy length while giving you a bit of curl too! Polymers in the formula help to bend the shapes of your hairs. I don’t normally use a lash curler and love that this eliminates the need to. The tip of the mascara wand is tapered that way you can reach the itty bitty lashes on your lower lash line with precision.

It’s so good that it’s already on backorder – which means it won’t be available to ship out until September 1st! You can still check it out here. You can always contact me with any questions.

Influenster: Apple & Eve

Yay! My Influenster box filled with Apple & Eve goodies finally arrived!

I was super excited after I got the e-mail telling me it would be something for back-to-school. Perfect timing! My eldest just started 1st grade & my son starts Kindergarten next week. I have some picky eaters so packing school lunches is what I’ll be doing and these juices are just perfect!

The flavors I received were: Apple Juice, Very Berry, Fruit Punch, Berry Berry, & Apple Harvest.

The packaging is very bright & cheerful – I’m fond of the design. It’s also going to be very easy for my kids to handle putting in the straw by themselves at lunch time. I know there will be aides in the cafeteria to help them just in case – but learning independence at that age is important.

If you haven’t signed up for Influenster yet – you totally should! It’s 100% free. After some time & participation you’ll start getting more & more goodies at your door.

Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Exclusive

There’s going to be a new Dusk From Lycanroc coming to Pokémon later this year. The Pokémon Company announced it’s being released as an exclusive to those that purchase Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon.

If you’re hoping there’s a trick to evolving a regular Rockruff into Dusk Form Lycanroc, think again. You can’t even catch it in the wild. Did you think they were going to make it that easy?

To get Dusk Form Lycanroc for Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon you’ll need to purchase the game within 2 months of it’s release. Then hook up to the Nintendo Network where you’ll be able to download the special Rockruff that’s can evolve into this new Dusk Form. It’ll be available from November 17th to January 10th, 2018.

Even though Dusk Form Lycanroc looks like a mash-up of it’s Midday & Midnight Forms, it’s ability Tough Claws sets it apart from the rest. Lycanroc will still remain rock-type. It does have the ability to learn the moves Accelerock (fire-type) and Counter (fighting-type). Each of those moves are evolution specific to Rockruff in Sun/Moon.

I love that you have a full 2 months after the game’s release to get this. If you can’t pick up a copy when it’s release November 17th, and you end up getting it for Christmas then you still won’t miss out!

But wait, there’s more…

If you pre-order the game through the Pokémon Center, you’ll get a keychain plush as a bonus! You don’t get to pick the keychain but it’s one of the 3 starter Pokémon from the Alola region – Rowlet, Litten or Popplio. While the bonus plush keychain is “while supplies last”, you can maybe catch one in-stock at the Pokémon Center shop for $9.99.

I love how people come together to support a great cause. Bonus when the items you’re purchasing to support that great cause are something you already love in the first place anyways. In this case… MAKEUP!

August Customer Kudos 2017

Recently I purchased an exclusive bundle that The Younique Foundation released with limited edition colors. All proceeds of the bundle went to support the Foundation and all the amazing things they do for women survivors of sexual abuse while a child/teen. We literally SOLD OUT of the bundle in less than a week! That’s amazing.

The collection consists of exclusive metallic colors, created to honor kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery through precious metals. Kintsugi symbolizes that these women are stronger now, after having been broken.

Included items …

Moodstruck Powder Blush in Supported
Moodstruck Splash Liquid Lipstick in Secure
Splurge Cream Shadow in Cherished

There are so many great things coming to Younique in September.

Barnes & Noble: Trip 1

BNTrip1

I’ve never really shopped inside the Barnes & Nobles near my house. I honestly think the last time I was inside was for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. A quick bit of Googling tells me that was 10 years ago!

I decided that I was going to take a trip out there yesterday to pick up the new book I was talking about, The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones. I ended up picking up The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe as well.

I will admit that I totally picked up the Poe book because of the cover. Remember when I said that I judge a book by it’s cover? Well I did. There was an entire table of different books in that same style. Unrealistically, my plans are to own the all. Seriously though, there are quite a few that I want to purchase like … Classic Horror Stories, Dracula, The Complete Sherlock Holmes … trust me the list is way longer than that. They are part of the Barnes & Nobles Collectible Editions.

Yesterday I signed up to be a Barnes & Noble Member, which gives a few good perks that I plan on taking advantage of in the future.

Keep reading to hear how I saved on my purchase & how you could too! Read More »

Finally, Nintendo.

Finally.

That was my 1st thought when I heard the Nintendo 2DS XL was going to be released. Ever since the release of the original Nintendo 2DS (way back in 2013) I’ve been waiting for a version that is able to close.

New Nintendo 2DS XL

So here are a few facts about the new release…
Date: 7/28/2017
Pricing: $149.99
Color: Turquoise/Black
Japan Exclusive: Orange/White

The 2DS XL is the smallest large-screen portable device to be released by Nintendo. The Switch being considered a console. It still has the same 4.88-inch display screen as the 3DS XL but it is a much cleaner appearance. I never purchased the 2DS because even though I could fit in my purse easily, the fact that I wasn’t able to protect the screen by closing it was not appealing. Who wants to have to rely on screen protectors?
