Have you wondered how to know  when it is time to repair, or replace your roof? There are several tell tale signs on your roof that the experts at a roofing company look for and now you can look for too!

The three key things to check on your roof to know if it’s time to schedule a repair are:

  1.  Shingles – can you see any curling, damage or missing shingles? If yes, it’s time to schedule a repair estimate meeting.
  2. The Roof Valley – can you see a dip in the V section of your roof? Is there an uneven line in the roof valley where the corners meet?  If yes, it’s time to get a professional to check your roof!
  3. The Roof Boards – when you are on the roof, say , putting up Christmas lights, was there any spongey feeling or softness in it, it’s time to call a roofing professional!

Don’t do it yourself! Call a professional for your safety and the best possible care of your family home.

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Say hello and welcome to the month of August! This year, 2017, is now officially more than half over and Christmas is only 146 days away.

With that in mind and upcoming holiday events and photos – it may be time to try a new face product, so meet FACE atelier Ultra skin foundation.

Many many thanks to them for sending me a sample in the color 6.  I love the lightweight feel and  texture. The finish is beautiful and dries down to a soft powder that can be built up from sheer to full coverage. I really like the look and  feel, though, I experienced a series of pimples and breakouts along my lower cheeks and jawline.

Gack! I really like the product but won’t be able to continue using it because it took a full week to heal the breakout and I had to work like crazy during that time and I can’t risk another breakout. I know for me, when I saw that the silicone was a major ingredient in this PETA approved product, I knew right then that I was risking a pimple or two.

It’s worth a try, and a sample can be purchased from their website so you can try it before committing to the $50.00 full size price.

Meet Ultra Skin – the ultimate lightweight foundation!  Its
silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin
finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflé-like
texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a
foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising
performance.  Ultra Skin’s 11 shades cover the lightest to richest
complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation.
There are three new shades – .5, 8.5,11.5 – that can be also used to
adjust Ultra Foundation shades.
No primer needed!  It’s built into Ultra Skin’s
sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing
the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn’t
need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it’s ideal
for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Read more about silicones.
Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the
FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s
beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube
make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types,
water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid
and arid climates.

I made this video while getting ready – and share some updates along the way!

I’m
asking for your help so as I develop the makeup color story for BEARLY
film, Jael, ZBoy and Nascar Nights – I want to be sure and create the
top products that people are most interested in buying!

Personally, I live in bronzer and gloss – so those are top items for me to create! Looking forward to your thoughts!

Hi ya Gorgeous,I am in Arizona, and though it is hot and  feels every bit of  summer, the school year has begun and as   a Mom, the family schedule really revolves around the school year so we are back on a stricter schedule. Sigh.

This summer has been fun and epic with adventures and travel, college courses for my cub and making new friends.

I just received  some samples of the new Arbonne Rescue & Renew products made for rejuvenating   one self in at home spa treatments that are simple to  work into daily life.

First, the Detox Bath Soak. I do not take baths, like ever because it’s a vaginal yeast infection waiting to happen. If you do take baths, enjoy! Or if you are a bath taker and in a hurry, no time for all that tub filling, simply plug that tub up while you are showering and put a shake or two of these salts infused with grapefruit, tangerine, lavender juniper berry, ginger, orange and rosemary.

The water will fill around your feet and give you the aromatherapy on rising steam from a shower. Bada boom bada bing – a quick refreshing!

For the shower, use the Rescue & Renew detox wash infused with orange and grapefruit.  This has a light lather and rinses clean on the skin. It has a fresh and invigorating scent to it.

I like the product and love that Arbonne is vegan, natural, recycles and helps women builds businesses from their homes!  To get Arbonne, you either need to register on the website as a client or find a representative near you to order through.

Finally, I got a box of samples of the Rescue & Renew Detox gelee. Truth. I didn’t know what these were when I opened them.

The back of the box instructions said to apply regularly morning  and evening or after sports, exercise or sun exposure. So I opened a tube up and rubbed it all over my face. Talk about tingly. Really tingly. Don’t get this near your eyes and I definitely do not think that this is an anti-aging treatment to “rescue & renew” signs of aging.  In fact, I think it more of a sport muscle rub?

I like the light gel, and the scent, and after my next  run I will rub some on and see how that works versus trying to use it as a face serum!

Thank you Arbonne for the samples and remember to get yours from your local Arbonne independent consultant! Find one at www.arbonne.com

Hi ya Gorgeous!Today is more than Saturday or Caturday,  it’s National Lipstick Day!

Did you know that  lipstick was not rationed during the war? The Queen of England had a shade made just for  her in a red that matched her robes and sash, it’s called Balmoral after her childhood home in Scotland.

I am a lipgloss lover, though today, we celebrate lipstick. I have some beautiful samples to share with you from several brands.  I love that lipstick can elevate a low mood as well as be the perfect accessory to a power suit or party dress!

 

In this photo from left to right is the Black Opal lip crayon with a super rich matte color. Catrice lipstick is a popular European brand and the coverage is full with a tone of color and moisture. Next is Pacifica, one of the best vegan beauty brands out there!

The Pacifica liquid mineral lipstick is smooth and well wearing on the lip.  I have two colors from Essence Cosmetics in their matt matt matt line, there is a nude beige tone and then a warm mauve tone –  these lipsticks are matte and buttery on the mouth – not drying at all! In the photo, the next lip stain from Alima Pure is new to me and I’m in love with this soft tint with lots of moisture!  It’s perfect for gals going back to school!

Finally in the photo you see the two Lorac Alter Ego lip stains in Activist and Secret Agent. I’m a fan of this brand, and these lip stains pack a powerful long wearing tint that is also moisturizing that doesn’t build up on the mouth.

 

Finally, how do you apply your lipstick? Sure, it’s easy to bullet it on but if you take the extra step of applying with a precision lip brush, like this one from Royal Langnickel in the Moda Metallics collection you will have a longer lasting application with super precise detail to the cupid bows and corners of the mouth.

You should try one and be sure and get a couple, one for your home, purse and work/school space!

Final thought, remember that today, MAC Cosmetics is giving away a free lipstick! Go get one!

Hi ya GorgeousHow’s your Monday now? Or should I say, how’s your summer? Here in Arizona, the summer is in full broil and school for the cub starts back in 3  short weeks …or are they short? He is definitely ready to go back and see his friends which brings to mind the question that year round school, with a 2 week break in between semesters would do just fine. On to the makeup!

I recently received some very lovely samples from LORAC of their color story collection for the reboot of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Something to know going forward, I am ride or die for the original
1990’s animated version and none to thrilled about another warmed over
version of an Oscar winning trophy of a film.  In short, I have not seen the film yet, and when it arrives on Netflix, I will let you know my thoughts.

In the meantime, I think that LORAC has knocked it out of the park again, with Disney, and another amazing, collector edition of a makeup color story for a film. I was SO impressed with the Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales collection ,though this is just as stunning.

 

I have the eyeshadow pallet, cheek color palette, lipglosses and lipsticks and I’m beyond delighted! The colors are everyday perfect and if you know LORAC products, you know how soft, silky, smooth, blendable, pigmented, wet or dry they are!

 

I love all of the lip colors and the lipsticks or lip glosses can be worn alone, with liner, paired together or mixed and matched!

If you are a fan of anything Disney, Belle, Beast, the film or LORAC and special editions, rush to get these now because who knows how long they will be around!
