Avon- Product Recommendation 

I’m an Avon Representative and although I don’t like to be forward(pushing products for profit)we ARE homeschooling and I have a teen and my son has a one year old baby girl so extra income would come in handy. 

I’d love to feel successful at my home based business like a lot of people, so I will share my favorite products from Avon and if I get a few customers I’d be forever grateful! I’d definitely offer some giveaways, discounts etc. if I did.

Here is a hand cream that works miracles on dry skin…

My daughter also uses it as a primer when she does my makeup!

You can shop my website through Avon here and it will be shipped directly to you!

Feel free to comment any questions about products and I will get right back to you.


Waiting Sucks a Little….

…but it pays off.

I’m so not a fan of what I call Overphotoshopping or Photoshop misuse but that doesn’t mean I don’t love the product. The best program I ever owned was Elements 6 and still I felt I was jipped that the real, full on product was mega expensive, I wasn’t going there.

Then, I was browsing around Amazon as I do a gazillion times a day and see that the latest version and Lightroom are 9.99 plus tax a month as digital downloads…I’m not stupid, I seized that opportunity!

Thankfully, I paid attention any time The Pioneer Woman offered PS Elements tutorials back in the day. I checked her site, they are still there but sadly and not so sadly(she is totally fabulous and way too busy for that jazz)there aren’t any new ones.

These images were totally unusable prior to PS and LR:



Wow, just wow…what a Christmas Gift to me and all my fellow photographers(who are cheapskates and won’t take out a loan for software programs.)

Homemade Frapp’s in a Frapptaculous New Blender!

It’s no exaggeration, I’m in love with Starbucks Frappuccinos. It’s a family trait…


Paige and Mom, Hyatt Regency St. Louis Riverfront October 2010

This morning I tried out the ice crushing feature on my new blender. It’s powerful and pulverized every ice particle it came in contact with. Here is the frapp recipe, I used Starbucks Mocha coffee and whole milk in mine. Simply amazing! Make sure to double strength the coffee as the recipe states or I’m sure it would be Crappuccino.

A visual…


The cup is very important to the authenticity 🙂
