L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream

I will confess that in 30 years I have never owned makeup of my own. In fact I think I could count the number of times I had worn makeup. Turning 30 this year my skin sadly just isn't as picture perfect as it use to be. Starting into makeup later in life then most women I was excited to get the chance to review a new product. L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream was something to me that was pretty exciting.
I remember as a teen the never ending process my mother went through to "put on her face" in the morning. Honestly it was just never worth the effort to me, so when I read how quick and easy this could make the process I was very excited. L'Oreal Paris Magic BB Cream offers fours beautifying actions in one to hydrate, prime, perfect and correct. When I first put in onto my finger I wondered how in the world a white thin cream with little black specs could possibly work on my skin. Maybe I was over tired, or I am just easily amused but watching it even out over my skin was pretty neat. The color looks quite natural with my skin and there is no makeup line. Now you may want to add another layer to your makeup but for me this was enough of a change that I felt more secure with my skin. With a retail price of roughly $11 it is a little pricey but one small tube will last you quite a while and if you are like me and just need a little extra help then it is well worth the money. I have sensitive skin and I had no reaction to this product.

I do not like to wear make up either, in Florida, you do not get much time between putting it on and being beautiful and becoming a clown thanks to the heat and humidity, lol. I have however started wearing a little foundation for the hydrating and concealing, I will check this out. You wear it well!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
