My name is Jessica but you can call me Jess if you'd like. I am 32 years old, younger at heart, artistic, crafty and I am a down to earth woman who wears her heart on her sleeve. I am also a Mother of 5 beautiful children, from 9 months up to 12 years old. I love being a Mom. I am married to the love of my life; almost 13 years now. It has been a long hard road with many wonderful memories in between. The last 13 years has truly been full of learning for me. As hard as life has been, I wouldn't trade any of it because I would miss out on all the beautiful moments I got to experience with my family. 

Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes

Hello my friends! I am super excited to share with you another great review! 

Life is busy and we will be starting another homeschool year soon. Another thing that excites me! I know, I am a bit different. My kids aren't excited at all but they will be when we get started on some fun crafts and activities this year.

Back to the review. I am sure you all have heard of Younique and their awesome, nothing else like it, mascara! I was pretty skeptical the first time I heard of it. I was so curious too. I use to buy all those mascaras that claimed to give me full/big and long lashes. I was born with hardly any and have always wanted something to work. Well...let me tell you! It really does work! After a few times of practice I had the biggest fullest lashes I have ever had in my whole life. It is really that big of a deal to me lol.

So here was my very first attempt:

Even at my first attempt my lashes look amazing! This is with only one coat. I will explain the steps and you will know what I am talking about. So it is pretty simple. You have the transplanting gel and the 3D Fibers.

Three simple steps to achieve sexy lashes:

1. Apply an even coat of the transplanting gel to your lashes.
2. Immediately apple the 3D Fibers while the gel is still wet.
3. Seal the fibers with transplanting gel. 

You may repeat until you reach desired fullness. To see how it is done and for a few tips and tricks check out this awesome video: 

I am so impressed with this mascara. Not only because it makes me feel beautiful but it is natural, safe to use, water proof and easy to remove! You should check it out for yourself.

I hope you all enjoyed this review. I had a ton of fun trying out the 3D Fiber Mascara by Younique courtesy of Erica Muse. She sent me this awesomeness to show all of you how great it really is. To order the 3D Fiber Mascara go to Erica's website here!

Erica Muse is from Calhoun, GA and is a Yellow Star Presenter.

Here's what Erica has to say: " I have always loved makeup but have never been one to to think I can't leave the house without it. With Younique, I don't want to leave the house without it. I love how it makes me feel and more than that, I love sharing that with my family and friends."

Ruby Ribbon Cami Review

**This post contains affiliate links. This is at no cost to you. Thank you.**

We are in the middle of July and it is very hot here in Georgia. The older I have become the less I admire the fun summertime. It isn't so much fun anymore. No longer can I stay cool by running around in my cute childish swimsuit. It is okay though, I am very blessed to have air conditioning so I will try not to complain too much. I hope your summer vacation has been a fun and comfortable one. As for me, I am patiently waiting for Fall.

Thieves Laundry Soap by Young Living Oils

**This post contains affiliate links. This is no cost to you. Thank you.**

Good Monday everyone! Can you believe I am writing another blog post so soon? Haha yes! After weeks of feeling in no mood to write or anything for that matter, here I am sharing another great review with you. It is true that so far I have not had one bad product experience that I have wrote for you. I would think that is an amazingly great thing. I just want you to know that each review and post I make is my complete and honest opinion.
Today I want to tell you about my experience with Young Livings Thieves Laundry Soap. First of all, I love essential oils, making my own laundry soap and anything that is safest to use for my family. You probably know that by now but in case you do not I wanted to make that clear in my review. When I make my own laundry soap I do add lavender EO for the nice fresh scent.

First, I noticed that I did not have to use much soap for a medium sized load of clothes. It is a small cap as i…

DIY Paint for Kids

**This post contains affiliate links. This is at no cost to you. Thank you.**

I stumbled upon a really cool homemade paint recipe.....
You see, my kids love to paint so much that it was starting to get expensive. Acrylics, watercolors, the list goes on. Young kids don't usually care about they type of paint. They just want to have fun and be creative!
So like I said I stumbled upon this great, simple and cheap paint recipe. With ingredients you most likely have in your kitchen. Can't get any better than that ;)

Check below for this simple recipe....
Here is what you need:
1 Cup Salt 1 Cup Flour 1 Cup Water Food coloring Jars are squeeze bottles.
That is it! You mix those well together and you have paint! I made four batches so the kids could have four colors! Fun to make and fun for the kids to use :)

Preparing to mix...

Once you have all the colors prepared just pour into jars or squeeze bottles. Really, you can use just about anything to store it in.

Natural Health: Oxylent Supplements

I am always trying to find the best vitamins for my kids. It is important to me to give them something that will help their growing bodies and immune system. Most vitamins sold at stores like Wal-Mart are full of synthetic ingredients. One has to really pay attention to the ingredients list, even if it does say Natural. I have an eight month old, and although he doesn't need vitamins because I breastfeed, I need them very much! 

Breastfeeding takes a lot from a Mother. She needs all the nutrients and vitamins that she can get. If she doesn't then it all goes to baby, leaving her with nothing. Let's face it, Mom needs to take care of herself too! I have recently discovered a natural vitamin supplement for the whole family. This is not your everyday vitamin. It is a vitamin powder that you add to your water. Shake and drink!
A company called Vitalah and founder Lisa Lent created an amazing health and nutritional supplement. I was sent to review a few from their Oxylent line. I…

Four Dirty Boys Soap

Good October everyone! It has been awhile since I have sat here to write to you all about something or another. Have you all been enjoying the cooler weather? If you are from the South like me I bet you are. I know many that love the summer but Fall is my happy time. My kids agree with me on this one ;)

Today, I am introducing you to another amazing business and its owner. Teresa makes natural handmade soap. She has a big family of boys to keep clean! What better way to do that than by doing it the healthy and non-toxic way? From what I have learned so far by my own research, it isn't simple work....but highly rewarding. Keeping her family healthy, happy and clean :) All while running a family owned business. I am truly in awe of her and what she has accomplished.

I have ordered her soap and tried many great scents. My absolute favorites are Sweet Orange Chili Pepper and Spearmint. Each soap has an amazing …
