Harvest festival & Birthday

Yesterday T went to the town Harvest festival with her friend. We went towards the end to pick her up. She threw together a costume. She was a spider bat girl.

Yesterday was also Anthony's birthday. So after we picked Tara up we went to eat & then went to the outlet mall. He wanted to get some new shirts, but couldn't find anything.

Lipsense review

Not sure if you've heard of Lipsense, but I have heard a lot of people raving about it. So when I got a chance to try Lipsense I was really excited. I chose the Persimmon liquid lipstick & got a matte gloss with it. They also have different glosses to chose from. 1st you put on the liquid lipstick & then put the gloss over it. The gloss is moisturizing shea butter based. It is a system that must be used together to work. It comes with directions. You have to put it on clean/dry lips & apply color in 3 thin layers (waiting between layers) & then apply the gloss at least 5 seconds after color. Lipsense is a long lasting liquid lip color that is guaranteed to last 4-18 hours. It is waterproof, smudge proof, kiss proof & non-drying. It is lead-free, wax free, gluten free, vegan, kosher & not tested on animals. Sounds great doesn't it?

 I love the color that I picked. It's really pretty. It did stay on really good.You can mix different colors. There are 40 colors to chose from. Apply a different color with each layer.  It does tingle a bit when you put it on. The tingling can be noticed more by someone that has very dry lips. My lips are really dry. The tingling sensation is cause by the cosmetic grade alcohol which creates a bacteria free environment in the tube. It took me a few tries to get it to go on right & look good. It's a bit different than most lip products, but that's why it works so good. I kind of wish it had a better scent/taste to it though. The gloss doesn't really have a scent. This is a swatch that I did. The color matches our deck.

To remove Lipsense you can use Ooops remover (sold by the company), an oil based make up remover, a neutrogena bar soap or castille soap. I used coconut oil before & today I used some wipes that I had in the car to remove the swatch. It really does stay on good, so it isn't going to come off on it's own. Would I recommend this product? Yes, I would. If you would like to try it I have a discount code to share with you. Use the code bloggymoms15 at check out for a 15% discount. Go to Red Gate Beauty to order.

Nail Files. Week # 319

This week I felt like wearing light colors. So I had on an OPI mini (no name on it) that's the Silver 1 & the blue is Orly color blast~Secret grotto. I liked the color combo.

Stuff & Things

* So yesterday I went & had 2 moles biopsied. I woke up today & 1 of the areas was itchy. I looked at it & noticed that there were blisters oozing. I think it's the tape that is causing the blisters. I can take the tape & gauze off tomorrow. Can't wait.

* Hubs birthday is Saturday, so we are making a cake for him tomorrow when T comes home from school. He has his day all planned out.

*I'm going shopping tomorrow & looking forward to it. I have a few things that I want to get. I need a new Fall/Spooky/Halloween cozy mystery book, so I'll probably be going to Barnes & Noble, Target & I want to go to Kohls to get a perfume.

*It's finally cooled off here. I don't like it. I'll be in most of the time now. Hybernation time. I've been lighting more candles, my salt lamp & turning on more lights. It somewhat makes me feel better.

Tasty Tuesday~Creapy Cobwebs

 Creapy Cobwebs

 We made these yesterday since there was no school because of Columbus day. Tara did most of it. These don't exactly look like cobwebs, but they still tasted really good. Check out the photos of T cooking at the bottom.
The recipe is from Kids Treats cookbook.


4 to 5 cups vegetable oil, divided
1 cup dry pancake mix
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Pour 1 inch of oil into large deep skillet: heat to 350f.

2. Combine pancake mix, milk, egg & 1 tablespoon oil in medium bowl. Do not overmix. Place 2 tablespoons batter into funnel or squeeze bottle; swirl into hot oil to form cobwebs. Cook until bubbles form. Gently turn using tongs and slotted spatula; cook 1 minute or until browned. Drain on paper towels.

3. Repeat with remaining batter. If necessary, add more oil to maintain 1-inch depth and heat oil to 350f between batches.

4. Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Sprinkle over cobwebs.

Mommy & Me Monday (Flashback)

This pic was taken at Topsfield fair in October 2011. We didn't get to go to this fair this year. Today was the last day. We will definitely go next year.

Stuff & Things Sunday

Stuff & Things

*I've been kind of obsessed with watching You tube videos lately. It just motivates me & I like that. I look forward to seeing that 1 of my fave You tubers did a new video. Of course there are times where I check the title & if it isn't something that I'm interested in, I will skip watching it. Just because we like the person doesn't mean that we are going to love every video that they do. Some of my fave You tubers are Hollie Eats Lipstick, Jessica Braun, Samantha March, Taylor Nicole Dean, Kathleen Lights, Cheap Crafty girl, But 1st Coffee, Coffeebreak with Dani, Madison Miller, Love Meg, Amy Lee, Beauty & the Beastons & lots more.

*I'm sick of Fall, football & hearing about pumpkin spice. I don't like any of those 3 things.

*Not sure if I'm dressing up for Halloween. Probably just cat ears & some cool cat make up. I usually go out for a little while & then Anthony goes out.

*I'm glad that Jason is back on General hospital, but not sure how that whole story is going to play out.

*I wish there was school tomorrow. No mail either. She had Friday off too. Such a long day.

New England Minute~Vermont

We went to Vermont today. We ended up leaving late, so it seemed like we had to rush a bit. It seems like everything in Vermont closes early. The stores close around 5:30-6. We got there at 4:00, so not much time. I got some post cards, earrings & some chocolate. I think this is our last trip for this year.

This pic below, we were driving. That's why it looks like a flash of color.

This is the Quechee Gorge.

Nail Files. Week # 318

This color looks a lot different on than in the bottle. Maybe you have to do like 5 coats. I did 3 coats. I thought it was more of a purplish pink. But it look pretty much just pink on. It's still pretty, just not what I was looking for.
