PDDU Episode 10

This week in our PDDU Series I had page 66. I made this simple Howdy card, using the Boots and Hat. I had this picture in my head of a hat draped over boots, so I went with it. I think it turned out Cute, but yet simple. You could use this for a just saying hey card or a cowboy birthday invite.

My Project
 DCWV PP-Single sheet @ J's, Wausau CS--PDDU cart pg.66 Boots 9"--Hat 6"--CTMH Ink- Desert Sand--Martha Stewart Black Marker.*Free hand the Howdy--4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card

Kristie is on vaca so she wasn't able to upload her project. When she gets back I will upload her pic to next weeks project.

TAG: 10 Little Secrets!

Sam Schuerman tagged everyone to do this fun little Q&A. I love Sam, she is so funny. I love watching her beauty videos. She also has a blog. Stop by an show her some love Here are the ?'s and my answers. Enjoy!!
10 Little Secrets!
1-What is one product that makes you feel like a million dollars? ~ I would have to say my Mario Badescu skin care products. I have been using MB now for over a month. My skin have never looked and felt better until I started using MB. I can actually go without makeup and feel great in my skin.
2-What is your Skin care secret?/A passed down skin care tip? ~ Moisturize everyday, wash your face before bed, and drink lots of Water!!
3-Share your hair care secret? ~ I don't really have a secret. I have to wash my hair everyday(I know there is a rule out there you're not suppose to wash it every day, but I have to) I guess my tip would be don't use heat on your hair all the time. If you do use a heat protecting spray. 
4-What is your biggest diet rule? ~ Lots of FRUITS & will be surprised the pounds you lose just by cutting out sugars, such as Soda. That includes all Soda's
5-Any workout Tips? ~ Change up your routine so you don't get bored. For me I walk, hula hoop, and do yoga everyday. I have break days also. 
6-Which perfume is your secret weapon? ~ I love YSL Parisienne...But I am a Body Mist kinda of girl. VS Pure Seduction is my all time favorite.
7-A clothing item of yours that always turns heads? ~ Wow, I never thought of this really or pay attention if any of my clothes do. I would say low cut tops or a really great fitting pair of jeans. I'm blessed in the boobs & butt area :)
8-What is your most treasured piece of jewelry? ~ My engagement ring and wedding band. I'm not big on jewelry...those are all I wear.
9-Who is your style crush? ~ Hmmm...I love Rachel Bilson and Jen Aniston.
10- Tell us something we don't know about you? ~ I plan to go back to school to get a BA degree :) 

This is just for fun. I plan on sharing more beauty related post, not just card making and crafts. I don't make youtube videos, so I made a blog post instead for the Q&A. I tag everyone!! It's something fun and different.

Hugs, Sheena

Spring Beauty VoxBox UPDATE/REVIEWS

A month ago I mentioned I received a Spring Beauty VoxBox from The site is really neat. You can review products you have already tried, earn badges to try and receive the next Beauty VoxBox. I had so much fun trying the Awesome products I received.
Here is the list of Items:
Sheer Cover Duo Concealer
AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash
Chapstick Lip SHIELD 365
Sally Hansen Salon Effects
Bath & body Works Fine Fragrance Mist
extra* Dr.Scholl's For Here Ball Of Foot Cushions

Disclaimer: All these items were sent to me for my opinion/review. These are my HONEST opinions.

Sheer Cover Duo Concealer-sold in one-month supply kit of 6 products + 3 bonus for $29.95...I am always looking for a great concealer to go under my Mineral Foundation. The Sheer Cover is that product. The staying power was great, it didn't crease thru out the day like other cream concealers I have tried before. The color match is great for my skin tone. Now with the warmer months being here I was able to put it to the Heat/Sweat test. It did great! I know it worked for my skin. I have combo skin and dark circles. My dark circles are fading due to I have been drinking LOTS of water. This concealer covers what I still have. Also works great on those stubborn breakouts. I use Bare Minerals Foundation.

AVEENO Daily Moisturizing Body Wash- $6.99 to $8.99 for full-size bottle...I Love It!!! I have been using other Aveeno products for awhile now, I just never thought to try the body wash. I am a cheap body wash buyer. All the cheap brands have been doing pretty good for what I needed them for, so why change?! Well after giving the Aveeno a try I was hooked. My skin was so soft after the first use, and I really didn't need to put lotion on after my shower (but I did anyway, ALWAYS moisturize your skin). My only complaint for this product it the PRICE. Yes, it is worth the price, but I am a cheap body wash buyer. So getting over the price was hard, but so worth it.

ChapStick Lip SHIELD 365- $1.89 to $2.39...Great product. The taste of it reminds me of a chapstick I loved using when I was younger. The SPF is great. I tested it out at a outdoor concert the other day and it did great. Also on my Vaca I used it while being outside. I tried finding it in stores, but I haven't seen it yet. I wanted to buy a few tubes for family members. 

Sally Hansen Salon Effects-$9.99...FUN Patterns!! I received the Animal Instincts Pattern. At first I had no idea it had glitter added. I love glitter polish. The nail stripes lasted a long time with no chips. However I don't like the smell. My nails smelled like fingernail polish for a couple days. That is my only complaint. This product is easy to use, even better to have a friend help. Fast and Clean. Lasts for days. 

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist- $14.00...I got a full size bottle of Moonlight Path. I however did not like the smell. It was a flower/powder smell. I am more of the Fruit/Sweet smell type. I gave my bottle to a friend who loved the smell and I got went to B&BW to pick up a different scent that I loved. The lasting power of the mist is great. Most body mist last an hour after shower. With the B&BW Mist it lasted all day. That is a plus when outside all day.  Great product. You also get a lot of product.

SOYJOY Bar-$0.99 to$1.29...Okay when I opened my VoxBox and saw the SOYJOY bar I was kinda like UGH!! Let me explain why I felt that way. A few years back I got a few SOYJOY bars to try...they were dry. I didn't even try the rest of the flavors, due to the first one was so dry and it just turned me away from the product. Since it has been several years now, I thought maybe they will be moist. YES!! My Blueberry bar I got was Awesome!! It was moist and it made me want to go out and buy more. I thought the taste was great. It filled me up and I wasn't hungry thru out the day. Now that I have changed my diet, eating habits, and workout. The SOYJOY bar will be a great add to my snack thru out the day.

Dr.Scholl's For Her Ball Of Foot Cushions**EXTRA TREAT** - Price??...These are for the ladies out there who wear heels all day or Wedges. Great for those nights you want to go out and wear those great heels you been dieing to wear, but the thought of having your feet hurt has turned you away from those heels. I placed these in my wedge sandals. So comfy and my feet didn't hurt. Great product. Easy to apply to shoes.

These are my opinions. Not everyone is going to get the same reaction as I did to these products. Feel free to leave a comment on products you may have tried before. Have a great Week everyone.
