Make Up by 1D Giveaway!

I've been trying to find the perfect holiday gifts for my girls. They are 8 and and my 21 year old has special needs, she's often hard to buy for. They both love 1 Direction! The make-up kit came in the mail and my girls were ALL OVER IT. They are so excited! Included in this kit is:

Give your look a jolt of electric colour, with this limited-edition trio of ultra-bold coloured mascaras for hair and lashes, in three heavily pigmented, buildable colours. FOR LASHES- Make a subtle statement by adding a pop of colour to the tips of your lashes, or add coats to your entire lashes for a shockingly chic look. The more the better! AS A HAIR MASCARA- Apply to small sections of hair and swipe through for instant ELECTRIC highlights. Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink Story of my life- Amped canary yellow  

Liquilights Glow Gloss sparkles brilliantly during the day and illuminates under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night. Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or paired with One Direction crème lipstick for a bolder look. Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light Taken - Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light

ROCK ME NAIL KIT, featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings that add even more sizzle to your mani, for nails that light up day and night.

Thank a Veteran!

Today is Veteran's Day. It's a day that we thank those who served in the military or are currently serving. Without these wonderful men and women, we wouldn't have the freedoms we have, today. I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for all that you bravely do, each and every day. This is a great list of businesses that offer free items to service men and women and Veterans today. :)

At Least it All Happened at Once!

I'm amazed at how, when things go badly, it seems things go really sour all at once. I often wonder why one thing can't just happen here and there and let me catch my breath before something else comes along that is kind of nasty, you know? No, not in this house! That isn't how that works! Last week was the week from hell! It seems that if it could go wrong, it did. I'm not talking little things, either. My oldest daughter has worked at the same location for almost 7 years. She lost her job on Thursday, basically due to no longer being a good fit for the company. Alrighty then. We started looking at other employment options (yes, doors are opening for her, but they are opening slowly and without a lot of income so far!) We started filling out the food stamp application and the site went down and was down all weekend long. One thing after another. I took her to get some groceries (thankfully I actually had some extra cash!) The same day she was let go from her position was trick or treat night. I took my youngest daughter out trick or treating. After about 5 homes, my knee gave out. I couldn't put weight on it. I had to call my son to come get me and my daughter and take us home. I felt so defeated. I ended up in the Ouch Clinic and left with a cortisone shot in my knee, a script for pain medication, and crutches, of all things. I joked that the crutches may cause me to be a return patient sooner than later... The cortisone affects my mood. This reflected on to the rest of the weekend's events and not in a good way. My son suffers from anxiety and depression. He was coping fairly well with everything, but reached the end of his rope and left me and his sister at McDonalds, Friday night. I had to call my husband to come and take us home. That was fun. No, really, it wasn't, but you have to laugh it off, or cry, or become a crazy lunatic. Every. Little. Thing. is making me crazy around here. I'm to snapping at innocent people, like the UPS delivery person, for example. This isn't good. There are more little things that make me want to scream, but just aren't blog worthy. I'm hoping for a better week! Hopefully your week is going great! ~Maggie PS. I'm planning on moving my blog over to wordpress. I decided to wait until I feel less stressed. I think this is wise. :)

Jord Wooden Watches- A Moment in Time

I am so excited to share with you a product that I believe you will LOVE!  I was given this gorgeous Wooden Watch to review for you all!  Jord Wood Watches have a wide variety of Women's and Men's Wood Watches.  I was given the Fieldcrest in Black to try. I was so impressed, when I opened the mailing box to discover a very sturdy box, suitable for gift giving!  It's a very classy looking box!  Nestled securely inside, around a soft pillow stamped with the company name, is your wooden watch!

 Oh my gosh!  It was more beautiful than I had imagined!  I couldn't wait to get the protective film off so I could wear it!  I'm a plus size gal, so I got a Men's Watch for myself, it fits somewhat loose and gives a casual yet classy feel.  I wore it with jeans and a sweater to go out to dinner.  My date commented about it right away!

Yesterday, my son and I had a meeting to attend, with a lunch afterward.  He wanted to wear my watch. It is so versatile, it worked well for a young adult male. 

If you are looking for a unique holiday gift idea for your loved one, this is it!  It's great for the special someone.  My son is 17 and he loved the uniqueness of this watch!

One of my lucky readers will win one of these gorgeous wooden watches of your own!  Please follow the directions below and you will be entered!  Good luck!
