I Started A Business!

Hey everyone! I know it has been forever since I actually blogged about life.  Don’t get me wrong I LOVE blogging but ever since discovering Instagram it seems to be easier to throw a picture on, add a few words, and post instead of write up a whole blog and include the picture.  I need to be better about it.  I want to be better about it too!  Stay tuned for more LIFE of me!

Here is the latest and GREATEST update….I started a business!  I recently partnered with Nerium International as a brand partner and couldn’t be more thrilled.  Nerium is a 100% plant-based skin care system, geared toward anti-aging.  Our company stands by the ‘you give us a year, we’ll give you 10 back’ philosophy, and this is evident in our before/after results.


Right now, Nerium has three products.  NeriumAD Age-Defying Day and Night Creams are for the face.   They contain an exclusive patented extract that helps with fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, reducing pore size, smoothing out skin texture, hydrate, firms skin, and lets your youth reflect through.  One of the greatest advances about Nerium is that it is simple.  Because it consists of ONE step for day and ONE step for night, it is designed to be a long-term skin care regimen…because it works with almost every rhythm of life, for both male and female and every ethnicity.

day and night

Nerium Firm is a body contouring cream that you helps with cellulite and dimpling.  It helps make skin more smooth, tight, and firm.  You can use this on places like love handles, stomachs (like mommy tummy…me!  thank you very much!), thighs, and upper arms.  Another amazing product!


Nerium and myself know that you will love the product so much there is a 30 day money back guarantee! There are no contracts either!  This company is just plain amazing!

If you would like more information on Nerium I would love to send you a quick 2 minutes video.  I just know you will love these products.  Interested in the business side of Nerium?  I would love to tell you about that too.

Quick and Easy Changes

I love clothes because with a simple wardrobe change you feel like a whole new person.  It is the same for shoes, makeup, and hair color.  But wait!  I have found one more thing….GLASSES!  When I was little faked that I need glasses because I wanted to wear them so bad.  Well now that I am 30 and truly need them, my love for them hasn’t changed.  I feel like I could go as crazy with glasses as I do with shoes.  I just love changing them up.  Let me introduce you to my new favorites…


These are Firmoo’s #F045 green glasses and can be found here.  I never thought I would like green glasses but I thought I would give them a try and I LOVE them.  They are a deep olive and really could pass for black.  You can only really see that they are green when the light hits them.  The inside of them are a lighter shade of green and can be see at just the right angle.


I love these glasses because not only do they fit great but they make me feel great.  I feel cute, smart, nerdy, and trendy all in one.  I wanted to try some that were bigger than what I normally wear and I am glad I did.  This size if so fun and different.


I have had so many compliments on them.  Each time I have said, “And can you believe they are only $36!?”  YUP!  $36!!  Firmoo is dedicated to bringing customers budget-friendly yet high quality glasses.  These are just that…quality at a little price.  These are not like that cheap reading glasses at Walgreens.  These are great quality lens and frames.  No one would even know they were only $36 unless you told them.


Want to try Firmoo and quickly change up your style?  Well you are in luck!  They have renewed their First Pair Free program for new customers.  Use the widget below to see what pairs are currently free.  (If it were me I would get the light brown ones…#F036….so cute!)  You will get  one pair of frames, one complimentary case, one cleaning cloth and other accessories. You just need to pay for lenses & shipping.  Don’t see a pair that tickles your fancy?  Use code THANKS for 20% off all frames sitewide…but hurry before it expires!

Wish List Wednesday

I am dying to get a new pair of Nike Free’s.  The last time I bought a pair was when I started at the tanning salon…about 4 years ago.  My shoes practically have no tread left on them.  Plus the colors now are way cooler than just plain black.

Until then let me share with you the movie that will be coming out from Disney this Christmas season….


Here is a little sneak peek for you!

into the woods

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Rob Marshall, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the Academy Award®-winning musical “Chicago” and Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directs the film, which is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine, who also penned the screenplay, and legendary composer Stephen Sondheim, who provides the music and lyrics. Produced by Marshall, John DeLuca, “Wicked” producer Marc Platt and Callum McDougall, “Into the Woods” will be released in theaters Dec. 25, 2014.

Starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, “Into the Woods” is a humorous and heartfelt musical that follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

Disney, PG, All Star cast, Christmas Day….sounds like a winner!  What do you think?  Want to see it or will you pass?

Living in a college town I always tell when school starts.  The traffic just about doubles from summer to fall.  It is crazy!  The nice thing is the students boost our economy.  Between rent, food, and gas students pay a lot of money.  Normally I would say books cost a lot too but now they don’t have to.

See in the Sun

When I was little I tried to fake that I had bad eyes so I could get glasses.  I loved the way they looked.  When I was in high school I bought a pair of black framed glasses from Claire’s so I could wear them on days I wanted to look a little more hipster.  (I was sporting the hipster look before hipster was cool.  You could say I was a trend setter ;-) )  For my wedding I bought colored contacts so my eyes would be a brighter color of wedding photos.  They ripped when I went to put them in.  Womp! Womp!   Now that I am 30, I finally need glasses!  Some may say I am crazy to be excited that my eyesight is off but I kind of am!  I love wearing glasses.  I love that they can be a fun accessory to your outfit.  I love that you can see personality in glasses.  I love everything about them.  The only thing I don’t love is that when I forget them things can be a little fuzzy.  Then I feel like I need to pull out my eyeballs and wash them off so I can see better. 

I may or may not have passed along my love for glasses to my son :)


When I began wearing glasses I had a dilemma when I drove.  I either had the sun in my eyes because I was wearing my glasses or things were a little fuzzy because I was wearing my sunglasses.  I didn’t want to spend a lot on prescription sunglasses so I decided not to own any. 

Firmoo.com is “the world’s most popular online eyeglasses store.”  They offer a large variety prescription eyewear in high quality yet at extremely affordable prices. When I say affordable I mean it!  I am talking $16 and up!  I think the most expensive pair I saw were just $66.  Try to find deals like that in a brick and mortar store.


I was given the opportunity to receive a pair of prescription sunglasses.  No longer would have have to debate between being able to see in the sun and being able to actually SEE in the sun.  I was so excited to try out my first pair of prescription sunnies.  The Firmoo.com site is super simple to use.  Just find the style you like, put in your prescription information, check out, and done!  The hardest part is trying to decide which pair to get.

I chose this great pair of tortoise glasses and then picked the option to darken the lens to a dark brown.  They currently retail for $33 and to darken the lens it is an additional $10.  Talk about a great price for prescription sunglasses!!  The frame is light weight without feeling cheap.  It is a tortoise shell look.  They are a little more on the red-brown side…not chocolate brown.  I like this because it gives it a little more spunk than a chocolate brown tortoise design would.


I really like these glasses.  The tint is nice and dark and keeps the sun out of my eyes.  The lightweight frame keeps me from getting a headache.  These are cute and stylish and at a price that can’t be beat.




Right now Firmoo is offering the FIRST PAIR FREE!  Click the banner below or HERE for more details.  How can you turn down a FREE pair of glasses?  Go on!  Give Firmoo a try and see for yourself why I like Firmoo.
