New " Easy " Kiss Lashes...

While I was browsing the isles at CVS I saw some new lashes that I had to get to try!!

One of the most requested post and videos for me has been in regards to how to apply fake lashes. A lot of people struggle with this.. While for me its not too difficult anymore.. for many of you it is.

Sooooo.. I when I saw these..


I thought they might really be on to something!!

These new lashes claim to be 5 times faster and easier to apply!!

How they work is ..

on both sides of each lash.. there is a thin red string that it attached to the lashes.. You add the glue, allow it to get sticky ( as normal ) hold both ends of one of the lashes.. you pretty much position the lashes by holding the strings on the inner and outer corner of you eye.. Hold it for a few seconds until the glue dries and then carefully place a finger on on one end and then pull the string out.. do the same for each end.  Then repeat for the other eye..

As you can see in the first picture the red strings are what you hold on to to apply the lashes.. Not just a string holding the lashes in the box.

I have yet to try these but when I do.. I will be sure to come back and do a review on these.. Have any of you seen these out yet and tried them out???  Email me if you have tried these and have any feeling on these!! kishajaggers@aol.com.

I think they might just be on to something with these if they work as well as they claim to!

Happy Halloween!!

 
Hello friends!!
 
Happy Halloween to you all!!!
 
I know many of you are working right now and a lot of our trick or treaters are in school.. waiting and waiting to get out of there!! I think its cute to see all the little kids roaming around the neighborhood getting their treats! Remember you really do need to check that candy before letting them eating it. I hate to scare anyone but I still think we have to be careful because not everyone out there is kind. So just safe.
 
I don't have any big plans today. I am hoping to stay in most of the day. It took a while for me to fall asleep last night too. I think tonight.. I am turning off the tv and trying it that way. I am having such problems trying to fall asleep.. I got to get that fixed.. Its miserable on me.
 
Its kinda cool today.. I got the fireplace going to warm it up in here. Scott woke up late and was rushing around here. I had hoped  he would have got it warmed up in here but he was in such a hurry that I don't think he did anything but iron and get out the door. I am going to work around the house, take it easy and just wait on him to get home tonight. I have no idea what I'm making for dinner but it will be something easy being he works till 8pm.
 
Well I got a friend I want to email right now.. so going to work on that and I will be back soon!
 
HAVE A GREAT HALLOWEEN!!!

MONDAY INSPIRATION..




Childhood is the world of miracle and of magic.
It is as if creation rose luminously out of the night,
all new and fresh and astonishing.
Childhood is over the moment
things are no longer astonishing.

A Long Day..

 Hello.. another late night post for you guys! Its about 140am and after this post is done.. I am going to go curl up in bed and watch tv till I drift off asleep! I didn't get to sleep last night till after 6am.. Yea.. I was none too happy about that. It sucks when my sleep meds don't work. I had a ton of things on my mind in regards to a couple of my girlfriends.. but tonight.. I am going to do my best to clear my head and get some sleep!!

So today.. Scott got up early and started helping our friend to move.. I was so happy they didn't force me up to help. At 1 pm Scott called to wake me, and even then.. I was a little grumpy about getting out of the bed. But I felt bad for Michael because I knew I need to help him.. even if I woke up late. So I got up and heading to his house. It didn't take long to finish loading the rest of the stuff and before I knew it...


We were heading down the road. The boys were hungry so we made a quick stop at


And had a quick lunch.. Then we were off again to..

drop the empty trailer back at the dealership..


The boys got it unhooked and put up and back on the road we went..

We finished moving him in.. Thankfully this time.. all I had to do is move the stuff in.. I didn't have to unpack anything!! That job is theirs! I am really happy that he is getting settled in his new apartment and working on making a happy happy life with the a family that loves him dearly. I think there are tons of good things in store for them!

So after that.. I drove my car back.. Scott drove the truck back.. We went to the dealership to clean both vehicle's up..

Ohhh.. remember the broken window I was telling you about last night??/

Well here it is..


Shattered..

Scott got busy on the truck first trying to get all the glass vacuumed up.


I kinda didn't see the point in doing it himself. They pay people there to do that kind of thing but since it happened when he was driving.. I think he wanted to do it.

Another thing that took me by surprise is that he offered to wash and detail my car.

So..


he got busy doing that. I really would have rathered running it through a gas station car wash because it cold and I was tired.. didn't want to wait at all!


but he got busy..


and got it all suds up


and cleaned

and even dried and waxed..


At this point the car was about done. I think we were at the dealership for about an hr and a half.
I wish I would have taken a picture of my car after he was totally done.. but I didn't. I had misplaced my visa card and was kinda in a panic around this stage. I had it in Scott's jacket that I put on at Sonic and thought it fell out either at Sonic or Michael and Courtney's apartment. We called them to check the parking lot.. and nothing. So I am on the phone.. getting ready to report it lost when Michael called and said he found it in a box with the hamburger that I didn't finish! Wooooo...that was a lucky call!
Thank you Thank you.. So he is bringing it to work with him tomorrow.

On the way home from the dealership I stopped at the market.. got a few things for dinner and as I was pulling into the house..darkness was setting upon us. I was so tired and cold that when I got in the house.. I got the fireplace going and just flopped on the couch until I got warmed up. Scott was tired and beat up too. He cut his finger really bad on that glass and I think we both just wanted some food.. showers.. and bed..

My mom flew to Indiana today to see the kids and her mom. She was going to go work for the week up North but her vehicle was having issues and she decided at the last minute she was flying up. I was in the middle of moving Michael when she called.. I answered and immediately told her that I would have to call her back.. my hands were full but for some reason she sounded kinda sad.. I am happy she sounded that way because it got me to call her back faster. Little did I know she was sitting in the airport waiting to board her flight. I about died when I realized that. What if I had missed her and she flew off and something happened.. I told her next time.. FOR SURE get ahold of me before flying off.. I just worry about her. I don't have much family left.. she means the world to me and even though there have been times when we both wanted to ring each others necks.. I would be lost without her. I am really thankful I got to talk to her before she took off.

It wasn't but a few hours later that she sent me the following pictures... 


My Brittany Belle with her new American Doll Baby " Courtney " that she wanted sooooo bad for her birthday.. I have a problem paying $100.00 for a baby doll.. But her grandma sure didn't!
And here is my wild child..


He went shopping with my mom for his birthday gift.. So he was a happy camper too!



Mom said she felt Brittany's hair was cute.. Its kinda a shag cut.. I love mom.. love Brittany.. but kinda disagree.. But.. with that said.. I think Brittany is beautiful no matter what.. and it will grow back out. I am still way upset about it.. and I doubt that will change but I am trying to handle it better. I think what gets me is it was done out spite for me.. not love for her. And thats not just mean.. its cruel. My father had a hand in it. Not a big one but he told them where to go to get it done without ever talking to me about it and did it without much thought. I expected more out of him.. Since then I have not talked to him. While I do kinda miss him.. I have to cool down first. Thinking about it now.. I just expect more out of him. I feel let down a lot with him but I do love him and when the time is right.. probably when her hair grows back out like it use to be.. we will hopefully talk again. But I am glad my mom is there and really feels her hair is ok.. and that helped me..but I wish it would have never happened..

Ok.. back to tonight...

I got busy in the kitchen while Scott soaked in big hot bath.. For tonight's dinner.. I decided on..



Chili.. I make a really fast good chili with very little work.. I will post the how to and pictures tomorrow.. Again. Chili is something that you don't have to take all day to make. I think this was done in about 30 minutes.. Yea.. Its that fast.. and it was sooooo good.. In fact, I just had a 2nd bowl a little while.. I made plenty for Scott to take into the dealership tomorrow. I told Michael I would send some for his lunch tomorrow too. So its all ready for them!

After dinner.. I went straight to the hot bath and my babies are starting to make it up the stairs now.. I went in to see Scott and

Gizmo was watching tv.. I mean really watching it and it wasn't long before


Sweet Pea was up there too watching tv.. How cute are they!?

Those kittens are my ♥. I am not ready to get rid of them at all.. who knows if I will. I might just keep them all! =) I don't do it for the $.. I do it for the joy they bring me.. However husby says they are a very expensive investment and he wants to make some of his $ back!! I guess we can agree to disagree on that one!

Tomorrow.. no big plans.. I am sleeping in all day if I want. I am just going to take it easy.. work around the house and wait till he gets home around 8 to watch House and Dancing with the Stars. I am not even sure I am handing out candy. I will have to go out and get some and I am not making myself do that if I don't feel like it. We will just have to wait and see!

We are also having problems with Cooper. I won't go into details but tonight I wanted to beat him to death.. I didn't.. but I sure wanted to. We are going to have to get him to the vet and get him checked out. He keeps up and he is going to get a brand new dog house and live outside.. Scott sticks up for the dog but how he is acting.. no one needs to stick up for him. He needs to be bopped upside his head. I know Scott loves him like I love my cats.. but his behavior has really gotten worse since we moved in this house. Maybe I need to call Cesar the Dog Whisper to come help!

Well friends.. I am tired.. I am off to bed and tonight.. I am thinking I am not going to have much trouble falling asleep.. but you never know!! Fingers Crossed my meds work and my eyes shut.. and I start dreaming..
Happy Halloween!!

A C-R-A-Z-Y Night!!

Cute-cat-vf66jrdo-166668-320-320_large

Hello everyone... Its late here.. I should be in bed.. but yea.. that's not happening. I have been up late talking to one of my girlfriends who is having a very hard time in her marriage. I feel so bad for her. But we will get her through this, with her husband or without her husband. But its really hard for her right now.. She is so in my prayers.

I need to get to sleep because I HAVE to get Michael moved tomorrow.. Let me tell you how today went moving wise..

The boys went to Michael's right after work.. grabbed the furniture that Michael wants us to keep for him.. which included our old kitchen table and a bed.. So the boys get it loaded.. and on the way here the table slid.. and busted out the back window of the truck they were driving from the dealership.. Glass all over them.. They get here.. Scott needed to change his clothes.. and wanted to get all that glass off him.. so Michael drove the busted up truck back to his apartment.. We were to drive my car there to his apartment to help him.. well hell.. I lost my car keys.. and was having to listen to Scott bitch and complain about the keys.. Long and behold I found them about 30 or 35 minutes after.. then we head off to the gas station.. once we are there we realize that Scott did not have his car keys or phone. So back to the house we came.. looking for his crap. All while Michael is waiting on us. We finally got back on the road to Michael's. Its about a 15-20 minute drive to his house so we arrive as the sun is setting. I am sure at this point Michael was ready to kill us both. We worked really fast to get a load in the truck and trailer and got a lot of his clothes in my car. Scott was tired and came up with the bright idea that we would just park the truck and trailer in the service garage at the dealership.. and then tomorrow in the early am.. we would get the truck up to his girlfriends. In the truck we loaded up one of Michael's dressers and Scott didn't want to put the drawers in it.. because they would fall out.. Mr. Michael didn't think so.. so he put the drawers in. Well we made a turn on a busy street.. and guess what happens.. The drawers fall out in the middle of the street. I am the 2nd car back.. Michael is right behind me.. and Scott was driving the truck..Well when the drawers flew out.. the full drawers..so I pull out in the oncoming lane..Michael pulls right behind me.. and all 3 of us fly out the cars and get all the stuff picked up in about 2 minutes and back in the cars we went. But Micheal's drawers got all busted up. I felt so bad about that. I think it was best that we did park the truck and gave up tonight. I mean.. shit.. it just was not going the way we thought it would. I am pretty sure Michael is in a shitty mood too. I mean.. I totally understand why.. but I hope we all get rested and finish up tomorrow..I know we ALL need a new day. Michael has to be out of his apartment TOMORROW..So we have to get him finished up.

Is that not a C-R-A-Z-Y night? Fingers crossed tomorrow goes smoother!

Well.. I have to get to bed. Its close to 4 am... I am still on the phone with my friend by the way.. So going to wrap up this conversation and get to bed!

Hope you guys had a better night that I did and I do wish you a beautiful Sunday!

xoxo

The " hunt " for my Orangy Red Lipstick!!

As I told you in last nights beauty haul post ( if you didn't see it you can click HERE to read it )
that I wanted a lipstick that would match well with my new polish..

So here is what I found..


The polish I got yesterday..The 2 lipsticks and lipliner is what I got today..

I found..


This Revlon Lipstick in


and I think it matches..


Pretty good!!

But.. I found another in ..


also by Revlon that I think matches..


even better! Ha!! Sooo happy finding these 2!!!

Finding a lipliner to match up proved to be more hard.


I settled on this one by Covergirl in


# 205
Smoky Intense..

I am not sure how this will look with the lipsticks.. but I think once I outline my lips and fill them in with this pencil.. it will look just fine after the lipstick is applied on top of it..

I will get swatches and do reviews soon!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects ~ Plaid About You ~

Yesterday I got more of the Sally Hansen Polish Strips.. I love these handy little things. I am not the best at doing my own nails..in fact, I suck at it.. But these sure help a lot!!


Here they are..

Now.. I did do these after I took a couple sleeping pills so its not the best application but still..


I think they turned out pretty good!


I did put a coat of clear polish over them.. just to maybe help extend the life of the polish strips but you don't have to. Also as I have mentioned before, these come with 2 little packets of polish strips but since my nails are short right now.. I only used one. I put it on my nail.. then cut it and put it on the same finger nail but on the other hand. I love this because I can get two uses out of 1 box!

If you want to check out more of my post about this polish strips.. click any of the links below!!






Have any of you tried these yet? There are many designs.. and I am for sure getting the lace design next! Let me know if you have tried these and what you think of them!

Halloween Weekend!!


Happy Saturday everyone!

The sun is shinning and it looks like a beautiful fall day. It might be fooling me and be cold out. Not sure though.. haven't been outside yet. Even Super Cooper is sleeping in today and hasn't wanted to go outside yet! I slept pretty good. The cats were keeping me up last night so I went upstairs and shut the door. Scott just called and said its 50 outside.. see, I got fooled from that sunshine!

I am going to clean up in a few.. and head back out to get that lipliner and lipstick to match that polish.. Hoping that I can find one! I am not looking for a bright orange lipstick but instead looking for a matte redish orange color.

I have been studying a lot of make up looks that are from the early 1950's. Where they wore basically a pretty plain face.. maybe a little eyeliner and mascara but had a strong lip. I rarely wear a strong lip but I am really wanting to try it out. I might even try pin curls too! I don't know why I am liking that look but I am.. So yea.. going to give it a try!

After Scott and Michael get off at 4pm.. We are moving him into his girlfriends house. I am not so crazy it but he has helped us many many times. So we owe it to him and even if we didn't we would still help him.. because he is such a good friend to us. We love him just like a family member!!

I did talk to my friend about doing a guest post for Thursday's Married Life Post.. She and her husband are coming up on their 18 year anniversary. I mean that's something to be proud of! So I am excited about that post coming up! I don't know if she will have it done by this Thursday or next but I will get it posted as soon as she gets it done! Well on a Thursday anyway!

Also.. I have a friend getting me some new make up brushes from Target today. I can't wait to see them.. will get them up tonight probably!

Well got to get cleaned up and go find that lipstick and lipliner and then get home and work around the house until the boys get here and pick me up!

Have a great day!

I will be back in a while to chat more!

Late Night Chatter!!

Hello friends..

Perhaps you are you are up when this goes out or more likely its Saturday Morning or Afternoon for you! Hope you are having a great day!

Around here today..


It was gloomy and cold.. I would have given anything to have stayed in my bed and snuggled up with my husband and kitty cats. But I went to the dealership.. saw Scott.. then went shopping.. then paid some bills and then I came upon..


Yummy Subway.. For some reason it just sounded good..


So I got a meatball sub and..

brocolli cheese soup. It was so good. Perfect for a cold day..

And look who else liked it..

That's Gabby's head down in the bowl.. I just let her have a little bit.. Its crazy how much that is like me.. She eats everything I eat. I have had cats before that ate meat and cheese.. but this cat eats.. pasta..sweets..vegetables.. If I eat it.. she wants to eat it too! Please don't send me a ton emails about how unhealthy it is for her. She has everything in moderation!

Today while I was shopping.. I saw this ..


auto feeder.. I have always just used bowls but we have been having a problem with one of the kittys thinking the food bowls was his litter box..

In fact.. here he is!! Hahah.. he is the baby of the bunch and really likes to pee in his and the dogs dry food bowls.. I am hoping.. hoping.. hoping.. this auto feeder is too small for him. His litter box pretty close and I have took the lid off temporarily just to help remind him where to go! So far tonight.. he has ONLY used his litter box!! =) I don't what it is about this little guy.. but hes my favorite.. hands down! Right now he is sound asleep right here beside me.

Also today.. my friend Courtney brought us some..


tickets to go to this Kaleidoscope show on ice where Sasha Cohen, Johnny Weir, Nancy Kerrigan, Kurt Browning, Paul Wylie, Joannie Rochette, Elivis Stojko and Sinead and John Kerr will be preforming along with Musical Performances by Patti LaBelle and Jordan Sparks!!

How fun does that sound! Little did Miss Courtney know how much I love ice skating!! Super Excited!!! I am so thankful she got us tickets! So that's where you will find us the of November 18th!

Well its 236am.. I am awake.. and need to be asleep! So taking my ambien and getting my butt to bed!

So good night from me and..


Ferdinand! He looks so much like his daddy! And Gizmo is right there beside of him sleeping!

No big plans tomorrow.. I am going to hunt down that lipstick I am wanting.. then helping Michael move.. That's about it!

Sweet dreams!

Friday Haul!!


I picked up a few things today that I thought I would share with you guys! I get a lot of questions about how much I spend on stuff.. Please remember.. I rarely buy anything that is not on sale.. I just don't do it unless of course, I have to. 

So lets get to it!!

First off I went to Rite Aid to pick up.. 


some of the Organix Body Wash. Right now these are buy one get one free. They are normally $ 10.00 each and with this sale.. It was like they are $5.00 each! How awesome is that. I love doubling up on bath and hair products because in my bathroom.. my shower and bath tub are separate. I don't like having to transfer things from one area to the other. 


This one is my favorite. As you can read its a blend of cherry blossom and rice milk.. 
Smells and feels really good! 


I decided to get a different one for the shower.. 

This is the Coconut milk and sugar cane.

 I Will let you all know what I think of this one after I have tried it a few times. 

Both of these are a gel consistency and really lathers up really well! 

I am not sure when the sale ends.. so if you are interested in getting these for the sale price.. get there ASAP!!!!

Next up.. 


I got these Sally Hansen Salon Effects in 

" Plaid About You" .. 

How cute is that name!? Anyway.. got these on sale too at Rite Aid. 

The next sale item I got was.. 


This Revlon Color Stay Lipliner in # 630 ~ Nude ~.. 

Thinking about it now.. I should have got 2 of these and I will explain why towards the end of the post. Not 2 nude ones but 2 lipliners. If I remember right these are 30% off. 

Husby's good electric razor broke recently so he is back to shaving with a normal razor. He was complaining how my " girly " disposable razors were tearing up his face.. So I got him..


Some special Aveeno Shaving Cream that is suppose to help prevent razor burn. 

And some more.. 


disposable razors because I couldn't remember what kind of blades his razor took.. 

( sorry but these were not on sale ) but they were for him.. and he is worth full price. 

I next picked up some lipstick that was on sale too..


Please look over my nails.. I was swatching all kinds of polishes on them.. so they look a mess right now.. Will fix them soon! 

Anyway I got this Revlon Colorburst lipstick 


in 


Now I don't normally wear red lipstick.. But I have been looking a lot at how the lady's in the 50's wore their make up.. and red lips were a big part of it.. so really want to try. .

What I was trying to do was get a lipstick that matched up with .. 



This new Revlon Polish that I got. This one is in .. 


I just love it for fall! But I failed at finding a lipstick that matched up well with it.. 

So tomorrow.. I am heading back to the store.. I am getting another one of those lipliners in whatever color matches best to the other lipstick I am buying that matches that polish better!!

Will be sure to show you what I find! 

Had fun getting some good deals today!

Later tonight.. I will show you what I got for my kittys!

Ohh.. and I almost forgot.. 


I got my baby's some birthday cards too while I was there! They are growing up so fast on me. This year.. I am sending cash for the first time ever for their birthdays.. It kinda feels weird not getting gifts for them but I thought they would have fun shopping and I also liked the idea of saving on the shipping!!

Thanks for reading!
