ImPress VoxBox from Influenster!

Hey Everyone!

  So I got a VoxBox to share with you, this is the second time I've tried the Impress nails because they came in a previous VoxBox.

I got two different styles and I thought both were fun and surprisingly wearable! 

I have to say I love these nails! When I want my nails to look done but not have to spend hours doing them I always reach for a set of these. They really do last and they are so easy to apply! 

Thank you @Influenster for sending me these for review!

Here's a link to the video I made on these!

4 or More TAG!

Hey Everyone!

  So here is my 4 or more TAG!

 When I was pulling the products for this video I had a really hard time, as most of you know my makeup collection is pretty large. It truly would have been a lot easier to pull things I have 4 or less of. And of course this got my thinking, how much is too much?

 I do makeup for a job, it's not a hobby or just YouTube for me. I am a working makeup artist so I find that I justify the amount of stuff I own using that excuse. Truth is I haven't used some of my makeup for a really long time, coming up on a year now, so maybe it isn't about what you do but how much you use. I rarely wear makeup myself, I have super sensitive skin and no time!

I have thought and even tried to go thru and pull what I don't use as much but at the end of the day no matter how big of a dent I make I always get it filled right back up! Makeup is a never ending obsession, there will always be a new product, a new colour, or special packaging. My words of wisdom for all yo out there reading this, buy what you will use, don't buy something that you know you will never touch because the packaging is pretty. When you buy something and it doesn't work for you return it (yes you can do that!), don't just let it sit and grow, trust me before you know it the collection will over take you!

Anyways hope you enjoy this video!

Thanks for watching!

Where have I been!

I know I know!

 I'm an awful Blogger and I'm truly sorry, I don't have a laptop anymore so so whatever reason when I'm sitting at my desk I do a lot of editing but I always forget to get on here and BLOG for you. So my goal is now to host at least 4 BLOG's a month and also try to link to all my YouTube videos thru here.

So the last two months have been super busy, with what you ask? Well planning for Brilliant! has started again, for anyone who doesn't know Brilliant! is a charity fashion show for St. Paul's hospital in Vancouver, I've been a part from year one and now at year 3 I am in change of all things makeup. I have over 60 makeup artists and around 100 models and it can be a very hectic time. The show isn't until September but we start planning in March!

The boys are both doing really well, Logan has his 11th Birthday coming up, I really can't believe he's almost 11, where idd the time go? Paxton is going to be 3 this year, WOW, I have a hard time even typing that. He is my baby after all and he's not a baby anymore.

Both the boys took skating lessons so far this year, Logan did amazing and Paxton had no desire to skate until we put a hockey stick in his hands, then you couldn't get him off the ice! 

He's also very artistic and thinks outside the box, I guess the paper wasn't exciting enough so his body became his canvas. He was covered by the time I finally stopped him!

And he got his first haircut, this was a very sad day for MOM!

Even with an 8 year age gap there are the best of friends, these two are my life blessings, and I'm so thankful!

We took a trip to Alberta to see their dad and my parents who are now living there. It's a very long drive and both my kids were so sleepy! This is them sleeping on the drive home, so cute!

Well there's an update and some of the awesome kid-cuteness! Hope you in enjoyed it and I'll be sure to talk to you guys a lot more!
