DITL Vlog: Moving Days + Food Haul | Video |

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Hello friends! It feels like forever since I have been on here chatting with you guys. We have been so busy with the move. I am so thankful that we are finally in the house and things are beginning to seem normal again. I didn't vlog a ton while everything has been hetic, stressful and busy. Hopefully that will change soon. I did pull out the camera a few times to catch little moments in time. Hope you enjoy!

Apparently in my busy state I never posted my last video which was a quick food haul a week or so before we moved. Here it is in case you missed it. 

I actually should have another food haul for you guys tomorrow. My family has been going crazy trying to get me to the store. But we have made it and I finally have the kitchen together so it's time! 

There has been so much that has been going on from things with the kids, to all the unpacking and setting up house again. I plan on doing some kind of catching up vlog in the coming days...stay tuned and don't forget about the giveaway going on right now as well! I'll see ya tomorrow with a new haul! ♥

Avon Big Daring Mascara Demo, Review & Giveaway + More! :)

Thursday, April 7, 2016

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am back with a more fun beauty related video, blog post and giveaway! A friend/subscriber Jacqueline sent me some Avon items to test and review. I happily said yes! In the video below I am going to go over a few of the items she sent including demoing the Avon Big Daring Mascara. Here are my thoughts...hope you enjoy! Also there is more information below about the other items she sent along with a fun giveaway sponsored by Jacqueline herself!

This is the Avon Power Serum is by far is my favorite item out of everything she sent me. It feels amazing on the skin. I have used this mostly at night ( I do use moisturizer after ) and when I wake up my skin really does look better.  That was just with a few samples. 

Here's the benefits:

• Anti-aging serum compliments moisturizers to hydrate, smooth, and firm skin
• Advance Boost Technology helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles while increasing skin's natural radiance
• Dramatically improves skin's overall appearance
• Hypoallergenic and non comedogenic
• Allergy-tested and dematologist-tested
• Suitable for sensitive skin

I noticed my skin really looking and feeling better using this serum. It felt firming and my skin felt moisturized and the over all appearance actually changed after one use. I swear. I was shocked at how much my skin really enjoyed this product. 

Jacqueline also sent me a full size Avon Big & Daring Mascara.  This is an interesting mascara because it is a 24 hour formula. Meaning it will stay put for a very long time. 

Here are the benefits: 

• Plumping Complex and innovative creme-gel formula delivers 5x the volume
• Clump-free, smudge-free, flake-free
• Curved brush with mutl-level patented bristles
• Brush captures every lash while sculpting and filling in gaps.
• .338 fl. oz
• Available in Blackest Black, Black, Brown Black
• Hypoallergenic
• Opthalmologist tested
• Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

This is a wet formula for sure. It has a huge wand with a lot of bristles and as you could see in the video, it really does plump up and lengthen. I think you need to really take you're time when applying this because it is a bit wetter. It does coat every lash and dries rather quick. You will need to use a oil based remover to get this easily off you're lashes. I don't wear my make up that long but it's nice to have a strong mascara that wont smudge or flake. It's not my favorite of all time but it's pretty nice.

Another product I got to try out is one of the Ultra Color Lipsticks in Carnation. She also sent cherry jubilee which was a little to bright for me but a beautiful shade. I personally liked the pinky mauve Carnation. 

Here are the benefits:

• Lip-nourishing formula with Shea Butter, Omega-3 Oil, Arctic Berry and Vitamin E
• Conditions and moisturizes lips
• Over 60 shades
• Chose your finish:  Satin, shimmer & soft matte
• See shade instantly with clear view window packaging
• Designed for every skin tone
• Full coverage lipstick

This color was perfect for me. It glided right on. It didn't feel heavy. I think the color alone is perfect for any time of the year. I did have to reapply it a few times through out the day but with as with any moisturizing lipstick, it didn't do that ugly feathering appearance on my lips. This was another favorite that she sent me!

I got a bunch of samples of Avon's Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray. However the bottle is super cute! Here's a little more about this scent:

Ultra Sexy Heart will win your heart! Scented like gifts of love—Maraschino cherries, irresistible red rose petals and decadent chocolate marshmallow—this intoxicating floral gourmand will capture the heart. 1.7 fl. oz.

Top Notes: Maraschino Cherry, Mandarin, Blackberry
Mid Notes: Red Rose Petals, Jasmine Petals, Vanilla-Orchid
Bottom/Dry Notes: Chocolate Marshmallow, Benzoin, Australian Sandalwood Oil

I am picky about perfumes. This one however is very spring like. It's very light...not a heavy scent at all. I personally couldn't smell a lot of the rose petals or jasmine but I did smell a lot of the drier notes such as the chocolate marshmallow and sandalwood. I smelled the orchid too. I actually like it a lot. It does smell fresh and light. Perfect for spring and summer. 

She also sent a few samples of the Black Suede Sport cologne for Scott to try out. Here's a little more about this scent. 

The newest fragrance in the Black Suede line. Discover rugged sophistication with Black Suede Sport. An energetic mix of watery citrus, sexy sage, and captivating vetiver that embodies the essence of rugged masculinity with an air of sophistication. The extra inclusion of spices make this 3.4 fl oz bottle of cologne spray a sensual must have for daily use.

This scent seemed to linger all around the house all day. I could smell it on the animals and even on Scott after he got home from a long day's work. I was taken by how good this smelled. I was kinda shocked it was an Avon product. I have paid tons for other colognes for Scott and this one is just as good. This would make a great gift for any man in your life. 

Avon has really stepped up their game in the past few years. Their skincare lines are amazing. All of them from what I can tell. Their makeup is top of the line as well. If you would like to check them out yourself or buy any of the times I shared, go visit Jacqueline! She is a super sweet person and is sponsoring a giveaway for one of you guys! You will receive the same goody box that I did. It's very simple to get entered. This is open to everyone in the US. You must be 18 years old to enter or have your parents permission. Good Luck!

These Avon items did get sent to me to review, but all opinions are honest and my own. Thank you so much for Jacqueline for sending them to me. If you have any questions or comments be sure to leave them below. xx

Tuesday Truths

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. I am back with another edition of Tuesday Truths. Hope you enjoy! 

* Moving back to Indiana makes me wonder about some relationships that I haven't wanted to think about for years. I think I need to remember when people show you who they are...I need to believe them. It makes me nervous.

* I had traffic court this morning. I have never seen anything like it before. To me it seems like the officers were acting like lawyers but they were really nice. The officer who pulled me over twice is a nice guy. I might not like my fines but he was kind. He was nice to my kids the 1st time and really nice to me the 2nd time. And even today, he was kind and dropped a lot of my fees and gave me a little extra time with the move to pay them. I was nervous about going but it was ok and it worked out better than expected. It's a good day! 

* I have 90% of the kitchen packed up. Today I finished up with the spices and other nick nack items but thankfully that job is done. I am thankful for taking this at my own pace. I might have to get moving a little faster this week...the boys are home from school for spring break and their help would be nice. Garage here we come! 

* I lost a important email and I can't get it back. Delete means delete on gmail and that's that. SHIT!!!!

* I think I need to buy one more load of boxes and then hopefully I will be done. I don't really want to buy boxes. I never have before but this job is hard enough. Dumpster diving for boxes just isn't happening this time. I think I am just getting too old for all that. 

* I saw a bee on the back porch today. Thank goodness I left the epi pen out. I am so scared of getting stung. My reaction is different every time. No telling what will happen to me. It could seriously kill me. I want Scott home. 

* Facetime has been such a gift. It makes me so happy to hit a button and see my family and friends. Its amazing! Also Uber has been kick ass as well. Who would have guessed I would love it so much!? I might never drive again! j/k

* The sun was out today but it was still a bit too chilly for me. Come on warm weather....come back. 

* I watched a show on Netflix about the Amish. It was about the ones who left and were shunned. It was actually touching and by the end I had tears running down my face. They have their way of life and their reasons for everything. 

* My kids are totally turning into legit teenagers. None of them like getting up out of the bed. At 1pm I am anxious to wake them up. But I am torn in letting them rest and get the sleep they probably need and getting their butts up. 

* I am thinking about persicope. Do you know about it? It's simply an app...you follow whom wish or sign up yourself and do live broadcasts. I like the idea and I think I am going to try it soon. Get the app on your phone and follow me → @kishajaggers 

* I wasn't going to take you through house picking. However Scott went and checked out this house his new boss wanted him to check out. It is a rental and it's beautiful. All the kids were like yessssssssssss! We'll see! We have been looking hard. I haven't settled yet...which I thought I might have to. I also an apartment for a few months was another possibility. I couldn't find many homes that really suited our family. God is guiding us where we need to be. However, mom is not happy with the price tag of this one so she is determined to find another. It should be interesting! 

* I miss Scott. Not every second but there are times during the day and evenings when I just feel a little sad and empty. It's been strange not having him here. It's about to be over though! :)

* I need to buy a external hard drive. Yesterday I spent over an hour deleting old photos and videos just for more room. I keep putting it off but I need to find one.

* Cooper has been driving me crazy. I don't know what he is trying to say to me. He's just stands close and stares at me. I played ball with him today for a long time. Fed him well. He's been out a bunch but I know what is going on with him. Maybe he misses Scott too.

* Tonight is the end of the OJ series. It's been interesting. Cuba has done a wonderful job. It still makes me very sad. But I am so watching in just a few minutes! Hope you had a wonderful day. I'll talk to you soon. xx

My 2016 Midori Travelers Notebook Setup- Video | April 2016 |

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I got up early today just for traffic court! I will have more about it in my Tuesday Truths blog post later today. Instead, I am back sharing a look inside my Midori Travelers Notebook that I am so in love with. It has worked really nice and I love how you can replace the inserts as you need or even when you want to change it. Here's the video if you want to see how I have it set up! 

Everyone is different and my setup might not work for you but as you can see, it is full and customized to my life. I realize that a lot of the Midori products are not cheap but I reason it out because this is a book I can keep forever. I think it's ok to spend a little more on a planner system that you can reuse for years to come. I do have a cheaper alternative that I plan on sharing with you in the coming weeks but nothing beats Midori. I am still using the passport size for my wallet which I doubt I will ever change. It works great and again..it's simply beautiful. 

If you haven't checked out my unboxing yet, here's that video as well. 

At the bottom of the blog you can find links to these notebooks in case you want to get yourself one! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day. xx

Week in Review | DITL Vlog: Finding my Mojo |

Monday, April 4, 2016

Afternoon friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am moving so slow today but I am actually feeling good and happy for a new day and a new week. We are actually kicking of spring break with the boys today so it's ok if we take it a little easier...a little slower and a a little more relaxed. I didn't vlog as much this past week because wasn't feel that good over the weekend. Here's a little from our week...hope you enjoy!

This is no going to be a long dragged out blog post with photos about our week. It was mainly a week of packing and trying to get things finished up around here. Then the weekend came and I just wasn't feeling good dealing with a lot of different things. So I feel like I kinda fell behind a little but it's ok. I started packing early just in case of something happening. I still have plenty of time and as we move through this spring holiday I am going to have the boys help out some. I for sure want their help in the garage. 

Scott is busy and has been working hard, hanging out with the grandkids and trying to get everything done up there that he has to do. If you guys only knew how long my to do list is as well as Scotts this week. We will both probably feel dead by time the weekend rolls back around. Here's a few of my to do's...

- Keep packing and moving forward. 
- Figure out dates when everything has to be shut off. 
- Transfer cable
- Find the UNO cards. 
- Answer Emails...like seriously...I can't put it off any longer. 
- Start cleaning packed up areas. 
- Keep up with filming and blogging schedule. 
- Pick up Zanes glasses. 
- Clean out car so Scott doesn't kill me when he does get home. 
- Take the boys out for a picnic. 
- Clean rocking chairs on front porch. 
- Wash and hang out bedding. 
- Fill up bird feeder. I won't be doing that much more here but I think they sing more for me for food! :)
- Answer some youtube comments. 
- Try to get treadmill cleaned off ( boxes ) and make time to walk. 

Here's some inspiration for your week:

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful week. It's going to be mostly packing for us. No fun but it's what has to be done. I am still excited about everything coming up. I just have to find my mojo again and get at it! See ya soon. xx
