New Products!!!!!!

Hello Beauties!! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I just wanted to come on here and share my happiness with ya’ll. Ok, so over the past couple months I have purchased a crap ton of new makeup, but I must say that the products I ordered this week have become my most anxious to get. I love MAC cosmetics with all my heart. Knowing that they are kind of over-priced {depending on what you are getting I guess} I try to minimize my purchases from them and only go completely kray-kray about once a year. So, anyways, even though I was super happy to get all my new lipsticks and lipglass products, foundation and powder, the order I placed last night has me on my toes ready and anxious for UPS to come tomorrow! They just released a NEW PRODUCT. They jumped on the ‘chubby stick’ bandwagon and introduced the Patentpolish Lip Pencil!! They have 12 colors and it is quite the variety. I got mine in the nudist color called ‘Innocent’.
M·A·C Patentpolish Lip Pencil is your new magic wand for lips, with a single swipe instantly achieving luscious shine. A unique blend of creamy emollients replenishes, keeping lips soft with an ultra-smooth texture that isn’t heavy or sticky. The pencil’s effortless twist-up application keeps things clean and mess-free, with no need to sharpen. Enjoy colour in a dazzling range of 12 new shades that stay bright and true on all skin tones.
1             Patentpolish Lip Pencil ($20.00 U.S. / $24.00 CDN) (New, Limited Edition)
§  Innocent Nude beige
§  Berry Bold Orange-red
§  Fearless Deep blue-pink
§  Go for Girlie Bright yellow-pink
§  Hopelessly Devoted Bright clean fuchsia
§  Kittenish Mauvey pink
§  Patentpink Washed-out lilac
§  Pleasant Rosy pink
§  Revved Up Creamy peach
§  Sincere Mojo Maker??
§  Spontaneous Soft plum with pearl
§  Sultana Dark grape
§  Teen Dream Bright coral orange

They are absolutely stunning and if you are a lip junkie like myself, then you better go get you some!! I also ordered the Prep + Prime lip treatment which will also be here tomorrow. Today I received my Sheen Supreme Lipstick in the color ‘Supremely Confident’ and a tinted lipglass in ‘C-Thru’ just because I need all the Nude lipsticks I can get! It would probably be cheaper to put concealer on my lips but it looks better and fancier {because MAC has the best sleek packaging ever} to carry around a lipstick or gloss. I did order their lip erase but I am not a fan of that at all. The first and hopefully last MAC product I think is a FAIL.
There is one more purchase I am waiting on edge for, almost as much as my lip pencil. I put an order in from Sephora {which is having 5 free samples now instead of 3} yesterday and the order should be here Friday as well. I purchased an atomizer, just because, well, that is pretty self explanatory. BUT for $25 {tis crazy but from every review I heard it is worth every penny} was the Marc Jacobs Beauty Liplock Moisture Balm in the color ‘Makeout’. {I think it only comes in that one color}.

Doesn’t that look fancy?! I cannot wait. It supposedly takes away dry chapped lips. The only downfall to it is when warm weather hits, it melts very easy. I found out the hard way that so does MAC’s Crème D’Nude. That was my first ever MAC purchase and I had it about a day before it turned into a puddle of goop that I could no longer use. So I will be sure to keep this magical piece {I have high hopes} in a safe and cool place!
That is all for now beauties, I am going to be working on a post tonight of some products I have been using and my thoughts on them, so stay tuned for that!! I have been wanting to get it up for quite some time now.
I hope you are having and continue to have, the most amazing day ever.
Until next time,

Tasha xo

High Five For Friday!!!!

Hello beauties!! It is 10:06pm right now on Friday night and I just realized I need to do my post! Does that speak at all about how busy I have been? That has never happened before and in 2 hours I would have had to just skip this week because I couldn't bring myself to upload a Friday post on Saturday. {You can call me weird, it's ok!} So without further rambling that is just wasting valuable minutes, here has been my week in a nutshell!!
One|| This whole week I have been doing mad, crazy, maybe not all so needed, online shopping! It is not very often I can pick up a bunch of high end beauty products without any guilt. When the time comes though I go CRAZY! The thing I love most is watching my email, checking it every couple of hours everyday to see what has shipped, or tracking info on what I should receive that day. That is the most thrilling part, even more than finding stuff to buy. That is a struggle trying to think of all the things I have wanted recently so I spent a lot of time on YouTube watching my fav people {WhatWouldLizzyDoVadIsRadMelissa RaymondShadesOfKassieKelly StrackKellylovesbeauty1Sadiekins21, Nicole GuerrieroSorry I got a little carried away, I wanted to say more people and not leave anyone out but I would have been here forever.
All those beautiful women helped me to achieve my shopping cart each and every transaction!
Like I said, I went above and beyond. Keeping in mind that my life revolves around Rite-Aid and there are no department stores here, no MAC, no Ulta, no Sephora. Nothing at all. So I never get to sample anything I just take everyone's word for it :) I want to do a separate post on things that I have bought thus far so I won't go into too much detail. I will say that I repurchased Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo foundation but in the next shade {54} because that foundation is incredible and is everything I look for in a foundation. I also bought MUFE Matte Velvet +, MAC Studio Fix, NARS radiant concealer, Laura Mercier secret brightening powder, Benefit's Hoola {never tried before and am in love with first application}, and I will just say I purchased every single one of Real Techniques brushes!

Enough of this topic, more info soon to come!! 
Two|| My son is getting too old and I have been watching him and I see my little boy slowly maturing into the adult he is going to become. He is only 11 {12 in August} but it just amazes me some of the things he does. For example I was upstairs getting ready the other day, probably for work, and the two babies {4 and 2} were downstairs jumping on a big box that has metal desks in it {that still are not together from Christmas} and I heard him go downstairs and yell at them and made them get off. Had it been a year or two ago he would have just walked right by them and thought to himself, "It's not my job to babysit them". It's little things like that that have been grabbing my attention. I brought him and his two friends to the movies Wednesday night to watch the LEGO movie. Now I am scared about girlfriends. Which I know he has had. He is addicted to his iPod more than I am my phone and if you knew me, you'd know that is pretty impossible to beat! My first baby and only boy is going to grow into a great man! :)
Three|| There has been something weighing on my mind a great deal this week. Our dog Haylee. We got her when she was 9 weeks only and today she is 4 1/2 months. So it's been a decent amount of time. Getting her in November, dead center of winter, was a bad idea I heard, after it was too late. Training her has been a undescribable nightmare and still is. She goes to the bathroom inside sooo much and it is driving me literally insane. I cannot take much more of it. She goes outside, loves it out there. She loves going for walks and hates coming back in when walks are done. Yet, no matter how long we are out there for, she comes in and immediately goes to the bathroom. She goes outside too, and gets praised when she does. I just don;t understand it. Then, when she goes inside she will take what should be one pee and make it seven different little puddles of pee scattered everywhere. She could literally pee, you get a towel, and she is peeing again. But it's not only that. In my eyes she is mean to the babies. The boyfriend says no she is just playing. Well she doesn't 'just play' with us, why just the babies? The two older kids and boyfriend have become real attached already and I don't know what to do. I have never had a dog before Haylee so everything is brand new to me, and I am stressing out and not liking it!
Four|| I hate my job. I never used to. I used to love going to work everyday. Loved the 20 minute right to and from. Not anymore. I work at the bank in our local Casino. Busy, steady, robot work. Mistakes are not taken kindly. It's millions of dollars you are working with a day. Your mind has to be with it every single second. I have been there 4 years, I have the emotional stability of it down pat. What pisses me off is their consequences. People are human, not robots. Everyone makes mistakes. It's normal. Here is the issue I have. The rules, like I said, are hard core. Something as easy as forgetting a decimal or hitting a 1 instead of 2, could mean your job. Any slight mistake, if the cashiers forget to give a patron {customer} a penny, you are marked up. If that happens twice, you are suspended for 3 days with no pay. Suspended. If you here that word, you think like normal people and think oh no, that is so bad, you are going to lose your job. That's not the case. You could be suspended 40 times, doesn't mean your job is on the line. That is their punishment. You don't get a verbal or written warning, you expect suspension. I have been suspended about 6 times now. The first time I was so scared it was crazy, I think I cried for the 3 days I was off. Then I learned the rules and learned that's just the consequence for everyone. suspension happens so much there, you now look forward to it to have a few days out of that place. That is sad. You try to enjoy your days off as much as possible and don;t take it to heart but when your paycheck rolls around, you feel the impact of $300 missing. I am on suspension right now. Wanna know why? I'd be glad to tell you. Because I called in yesterday. Because I was sick. Because I was puking. I have been there four years and have called in about 2-3 times. Average once a year. I couldn't believe it myself. And while you are getting and signing your life away that you know and understand if you are caught on property during suspension you may get arrested and blah blah there are 3 people in the room {2 female witnesses} and it was then that they brought up "and also because you were 1 minute late on such and such date", I said {out loud by accident} you have got to be kidding me right now. 
Sorry, had to vent about that. Will shut up now :) Well, after #5!
Five|| I wish dinner in my house was like it used to be when i was little. My Mom used to work {still does} in a hospital the next town over, as a xray tech. She would work 8-4 come home and cook dinner. Sometimes she would call and have me take stuff out, or cut up cheese needed for mac and cheese, etc. Stuff I always took for granted and now look back on in admiration. I am not a cook. At all. I hate cooking. I eat some meats just chicken. I do not know how to cook it unless it is on the grill. I can cook simple things like grilled cheese, alfredo and mac and cheese. That's it. Before you get over worked, my kids do eat, but nothing fancy like I used to. Mom always had some kind of meat, no matter what. We would sit down at the table and she would tell me and Dad about her day while we sat there each and every night and nodded our heads. There was always so much drama where she works apparently. We would always say to everyone, ya Mom had a long story at dinner last night. Dad and I would joke about it A LOT. I miss that so much. Me and the kids sometimes sit at the table, not often at all though. I usually don't eat. I always have other things to do and dishes to wash. I do sit down sometimes though and the kids absolutely love it when I sit at the table. Their eyes brighten up with such an amazing glow and my heart melts. Daddy never ever ever sits at the table. I;m pretty sure he never has. Oh no, at family gatherings {xmas, thanksgiving} he sometimes does, but otherwise he eats his food at his computer... that a whole post on its own. How about you? Do you all eat at the dinner table for dinner? Did you grow up doing things you wish you could continue?
That is all I have so far beauties I hope I did not make you bored out of your skulls, I did not have a real interesting week. It has been emotionally draining and I cant wait to breathe again! 
Until next time,

Hello beauties! Happy Friday Eve :)

I am in a deep rut and totally confusing myself!! I had this bright idea to start a blog on wordpress for two reasons.
{One} I have been told numerous times that it is better and easier {ha!} than blogger. I will admit it looks a lot nicer and I love the fact of hundreds of themes to choose from.
{Two} Because you can buy your domain. I think. I don't friggon know. I was looking to create my own website that didn't involve a address.

But after working so hard one night to get wordpress up and going, I started wondering if I was doing the right thing. I have so many people reading and following this blog, would they {you} really take a new link from here and follow me somewhere else instead? In my head, I think no. And I have worked so hard on this blog and have put so much thought and time into my posts.

How about you help me decide! I am going to leave the link to my wordpress and go check it out. Leave me a comment either here or there letting me know which one looks better to you! Again, wordpress is a few days fresh so I think I have 1 or 2 posts. 

Come and help me out woman!! Yes YOU! :)

Until next time, 

Tasha - XOXX

Hey beauties I am sorry that I have been missing and havent done a blog in so so long! I just wanted to update where I have been and where I am going.

Life has been super busy lately. I have felt like a non stop machine. Between just regular ordinary events and then throwing money my way {tax return} I have been so busy! I bought some new stuff for the house, new makeup items, clothes for the family and myself. There is still quite a bit of shopping to be done. I am going to sit down and take pics of what I can and just write down what I can't get pics of, so I can show you what I have been busy buying! I am happy with this years turn out and am glad it's not all gone and wasted.

I have been trying so hard to get my own blog site built. But I obviously don't know what I am doing. I thought I was cool and went to, purchased a website for a year, but after spending so much time on it, I think it is for businesses. Not blogging. So that is a fail. I am however, trying to move out of this blog and create a new one, to enhance the new me. I have tomorrow {2/18} off and there will not be any kids here for most of the morning so I am going to spend a good chunk of time between tonight and tomorrow to figure something out. My blog brain is getting antsy.

I hope you all have an amazing day and stick around, I will be back in no time! :_

Youtubers, Bloggers, someone please help me!!

Hello Beauties!!!!

Thank you for at least checking this out in an attempt to help me!

Ok, so here is the thing. Tomorrow {less than 24 hours away} I am going to be purchasing a laptop. Unfortunantly I do not have an apple store around here nor anyone that sells computers who I would trust for an opinion. I do not know what to get. All I use it for is blogging, watching youtube and searching the internet. I seen a few things of interest : 

1- Chromebook. Looks nice but I don't know if it would be enough for me. And would it last me awhile??

2 - Macbook air/pro. Expensive but would last awhile. Would that be too much for me though??

I appreciate any input or suggestions you have and I thank you soo much!!

High Five On Friday!!!

Good morning beauties!! I am actually going to try to get this up before work today rather than trying to catch it all before midnight. I have had a pretty decent week, even though on my two days off I had no time to come here and relax I was on the go the whole time. Other then that it's been great.

Here are a few highlights and random bits of my week!!

{ONE} Ok, well some may have an opinion and say that what I am about to say makes me a bad mother. Here is the scoop. I have four kids. My only son is the oldest he is 11. My three girls are 8,4 and 2. So two kids are in school and my four year old should have been able to start headstart this past September. I live in a teeny town and sometimes, no matter how early you apply to get your child into their first year of school, there just isn't enough room. And that is what happened to us this year. We signed her up in June and in August we received a letter that there wasn't enough room for her. Now, keeping in mind, headstart is an option and not mandatory. My son went there and I was pushing that he did because he was an only child {at the time} and he had no interactions with kids and I knew it would be best for him to start before starting actual school. If you know what I mean. So, my 8 year old was denied her time too. It wasn't that big of a deal for us because her brother was teaching her amazing things. When I got the letter in August saying my now 4 year old was denied too, we were ok with that. Sure it would have been a great experience, but not necessary.

So the beginning of this week, the school called. They said we have this new system and would like your daughter to start headstart. I was thinking oh ook, that is cool!! BUT there was a catch. The catch was that the classes were two towns over {about 30 minutes away}. I was turned off by that completely. Not because of the long bus ride, but because if something ever happened {anything at all} It would be hell to drive to that town. What if I don't have a car, or a ride. Or what if she was sick and was waiting for me for so long. I turned it away. I just couldn;t justify that.

{TWO} So I just found out this morning that Vanessa {Vadisrad} is going to be starting everyday vlogs for her 29th year of life!! She doesn't turn 29 until the end of February but she is going to start them February 1st on her Vlog Channel You should definitely go support her and watch her. She has a cute, amazing family and she is the most down to earth person you will find on YouTube. I love watching her so so much!! In her announcement video she prepares you that her vlogs are going to be real. Maybe some swearing. Like I said, she is real.

                                                    VADISRAD VLOG CHANNEL

{THREE} I have been trying all week to find the perfect nude lip. I have received my MAC lipsticks in the mail {they are the first and only ones I have ever purchased}. I got Myth, Fleshtone, Creme D' Nude and Japanese Maple. Myth and Fleshtone kind of are drying on my lips. I had purchased a few weeks ago, the Maybelline buff line, the nudest they have, and I almost like that better than the MAC's. Then Creme D' Nude and Japanese Maple are so creamy they melt. And it is winter. So I am not sure what all the hype is about MAC's lipsticks. So I will continue my hunt. If you know of any nudes let me know. When I say nude, I am talking like concealer shade nude. That may not be for some people, but that is my thing :) I am also still waiting to find a good lipgloss!

{FOUR} I am super excited about getting my iPhone 'back' real soon! I do not have an exact date yet but within the next month! When I say 'back' I mean that I had an iPhone for many years. Probably around 3-4 years. That was the first smart phone I owned and had it for quite some time. I had the 3g then the 4 for a little bit. I got rid of it because everyone at work had the Samsung Galaxy phone and I was amazed by all the personalization you could do with it. Change the fonts, change the text screen background. Have awesome lock screens. And the iPhone you cannot change ANYTHING. Well, I have come to realize that you can customize TOO MUCH crap on the galaxy. If that makes any sense. I want simplicity back in my life. I am beyond excited!! PLUS I will not have to carry around an ipod and my phone, all my music can be stored right on my phone. Hell to the Yes! :) Do you have an iPhone? What are your favorites must-have apps?

{FIVE} Ugh, the last topic already?! I was just getting into it :) Ok, the dog again, Haylee is still not having the peeing and pooping outside. I mean, she does. I know she does, I clean it up but its like she goes a little outside and as soon as she comes inside she finishes. I know getting a puppy in the winter wasn't the greatest idea I have ever had, but my goodness. The house does not smell like pee or anything i am always right there behind her cleaning it up, but it is just the point. If you know of any way at all, I will try anything, to help me help her to know that outside you do your business please let me know!!! We keep her outside long enough to go because I thought that first. But we are. I don;t get it. :(

I hope you all have an amazing FRIDAY!!! Off to work I go!!! I will be catching up on everyone Else's post when i am done work.
Until next time..

Tasha - xoxo

Going vegan?

Beause I will be 30 soon!

I've seen this list going around for months and months and months, so I figured I would do it. You know, since I'malmost 30?  It's always something I joke about, when people ask my age. I don't feel anywhere near 30, I don't look 30, and I certainly don't fear 30.

From Glamour magazine:

By 30, you should have:

1. One old boyfriend you can imagine going back to and one who reminds you of how far you’ve come. IF I WAS SINGLE, there's an old "boyfriend" I can see myself, at least giving a second chance. It wasn't because of anything in particular. We weren't technically "boyfriend" and "girlfriend." Things were left unfinished and never really officially were started, so it would have been interesting to see where that would have went. There's definitely A LOT of guys I have dated that have definitely realized how far I've come. (NOT necessarily a bad thing!)

2. A decent piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in your family. Every piece of furniture I own (couches, bed, washer/dryer, bookcases) are all brand new. However, the three piece sectional was given to me by my bestie, because she was getting rid of it.

3. Something perfect to wear if the employer or man of your dreams wants to see you in an hour. I have clothes for every occasion.

4. A purse, a suitcase and an umbrella you’re not ashamed to be seen carrying. I have all of those. I do want a new set of luggage. Maybe, some leopard print?

5. A youth you’re content to move beyond. Sure. I was the only child. I always had the opportunity to do extracurricular activities (dance, piano, tennis, summer camps, etc). I had many great opportunities and fun, while growing up. 

6. A past juicy enough that you’re looking forward to retelling it in your old age. Most definitely. I DO have some stories, but sorry none of those will be going on the blog ;)
7. The realization that you are actually going to have an old age—and some money set aside to help fund it. Sure. Hopefully, with my job, since there is NO limit to the money you can make, I can achieve it. If I want to make just $30,000 I can, or if I want to make $100,000, it is entirely possible. There is UNLIMITED income and A LOT potential with my job. So, here's to me...going to work my ass off, so I can get out of debt, live debt free, and have anything that I could ever want. *crosses fingers.

8. An e-mail address, a voice mailbox and a bank account—all of which nobody has access to but you. Yes, yes, and yes. I'm the only one with access to these three things. My hubby doesn't even have access to these things. I mean, my voicemail ANYONE that uses my phone does, because I have visual voicemail. Either way, I hate voicemail, so I don't use it or rarely check it.

9. A résumé that is not even the slightest bit padded. I don't use resume, and haven't since I was about 16 years old. I use a CV/Vita that is about four pages long. It has ALWAYS worked, and that's how I landed like TEN interviews in ONE week. Even though, I have been at my current position for about three weeks, I'm STILL getting calls about interviews.

10. One friend who always makes you laugh and one who lets you cry. I do, but I rarely cry though!

11. A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill and a black lace bra. I have a set of screwdrivers and petny of lace bras. I'm not sure about a cordless drill, but I do have a drill.

12. Something ridiculously expensive that you bought for yourself, just because you deserve it. YES. Probably more times than I should.

13. The belief that you deserve it. NO ONE deserves anything. YOU have to work for it.

14. A skin-care regimen, an exercise routine and a plan for dealing with those few other facets of life that don’t get better after 30. Yes. I NEVER sunbathe. I NEVER go to the tanning bed. NEVER HAVE AND NEVER WILL.

15. A solid start on a satisfying career, a satisfying relationship and all those other facets of life that do get better. See #7 in regards to career. I've currently been married for 1 year and 2 months. I love life, and REALLY do think that it gets better and better.

By 30, you should know:

1. How to fall in love without losing yourself. In the past, no. Now? Definitely know how not to lose yourself.

2. How you feel about having kids. I do NOT have baby fever, nor do I want kids until I'm actually 30. 

3. How to quit a job, break up with a man and confront a friend without ruining the friendship. Yes to all three. I may not like it, but I'm not afraid of confrontation.

4. When to try harder and when to walk away. Yes.

5. How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next. Haha. Mmmm yes :)

6. The names of: the secretary of state, your great-grandmother and the best tailor in town. I don't need a tailor.

7. How to live alone, even if you don’t like to. I didn't/don't mind living alone at all.

8. How to take control of your own birthday. Ummm.. yes.

9. That you can’t change the length of your calves, the width of your hips or the nature of your parents. Yeah, but a plastic surgeon can work some miracles.

10. That your childhood may not have been perfect, but it’s over. Well, it has been over for quite some time.

11. What you would and wouldn’t do for money or love. For money? Just name it, and I will possibly do it.

12. That nobody gets away with smoking, drinking, doing drugs or not flossing for very long. You want to age fast? Go ahead and do all those things.

13. Who you can trust, who you can’t and why you shouldn’t take it personally. I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt and would like to believe most people have good intentions. However, I'm NOT naive or stupid. I do realize some people just simply cannot be trusted, and that is just simply a reflection on them, not you.

14. Not to apologize for something that isn’t your fault. I don't really like apologizing for something that is NOT my fault. 

15. Why they say life begins at 30. I think 30 is the new 20.

A few simple beauty question!!

Hello beauties!!!  I just seen this link up and decided that since I have nothing else to do on Sundays I would join in!!  You can link up Here. Even though today is Monday, meh, who cares?! I still want to answer the questions and I hope you do too!! Leave a comment if you did, I would love reading yours!

1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup?

I was in Junior High {7th grade} I started wearing cover girl to cover my freckles. Something I'm very self conscious about and have always hated. I never remember getting picked on about them I think it was just me who was sick of looking at them!

2. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products?

1- I've mentioned this many times,  but cover girl 3 in 1 has been my most loved ever since I found the right color!
2- Stay Matte setting powder by Rimmel. I have tried a few others, including some new ones that came out this month, but I will always resort back to Rimmel. It never lets me down!
3- MAC lipstick in Myth. I just reeived it about 2 weeks ago and I am OBSESSED!

3. What is one makeup product you don't leave home without?

I never leave my house with makeup or a makeup bag. I figure my plan when applyibg y makeup is to have it stay all day. I think I have finally found all the products that allow that to happen. The only 'makeup' accessory I bring to work with me is my lipstick and/or gloss I am wearing that day.

4. What is your daily beauty routine?

I shower, wash the remaining makeup off my face then apply moisturizer. I have a few different ones I like but have been reaching for my Simple Moisturizer a ton this month. I then apply my makeup {I am going to attempt a getting ready with me blog post this week}. I have been setting it with Ben Nye Final Seal setting spray but I think it has been making me too Matte so I am going to try to leave that step out and see how it looks :)

5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you've discovered in the last year?

OH - EM - GEE!! I have found an amazing amazing product I forgot all about telling you!! Redken Smooth Down Serum. I apply 2 drops to my hands and rub it through my hair {roots and all, it is not heavy and will not make you look greasy} before I brush my hair. This stuff leaves my hair soo super soft and amazing, I have never ever felt my hair like this. It is absolutely stunning!

I guess that was all the questions, like I mentioned, I hope you do this as well and if youdo, let me know down below!! 

Until next time..

High Five For Friday!!!

Hello Beauties! I am cutting in pretty darn close, I have like an hour before it chimes in midnight {Saturday} and I need to get this High Five For Friday post up for sure!! This week wasn't too thrilling for me, I had more bad days then good days. Not bad, bad, but not the happiest I can be kind of bad. But here are some things that have made me happy and/or entertained this week!!

{One} I AM DOING A SWAP!! I know I have mentioned this before, but I don't care it is going to be one of my favorite, most talked about things for awhile! I was lucky enough to be pairs up with the gorgeous Lindi {check out her blog!} It is a Valentines Day swap, where we are supposed to spend like $10... but I can't help it if I have a shopping problem. So I apologize for not being able to stay within a price range! :)

{Two} I filed our taxes this week. It is always a special time of year for me/us! I am going to be getting a mac book for my big purchase and I CANNOT freakin wait! I am using a DELL right now, have been for awhile and I hate it so much. It's so slow and I cant really save anything of mine on it because it is technically my sons and even though he only uses it to play minecraft, my luck he would 'accidently' erase anything and everything I try to save on here. 

{Three} I need to find a miracle foundation, I was using Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo {she seriously could have chopped that name smaller} but it was way to cakey for me. The coverage was ok, I use my foundation to cover freckles {a billion all over my face} and so when I ran out of that I tried CoverGirl 3-in-1. I love it so much! I still have to use a concealer first to cover my face. I use MAC's pro-longwear. It seems  to be the most full coverage and lasts all day, but if I could only skip all that and just use one single foundation I would be in heaven. Unfortunately we do not have a Sephora around here so I cannot try samples of any before purchasing. And lets face it, high end makeup is VERY pricey! If you have any suggestion of complete full coverage foundations for combo skin please let me know! :)

{Four} I am so glad I made the decision to get Haylee {our now 3 month old puppy}. I have always had a fear of dogs, big or small. On a limb one day, my boss sent out an email, she was giving away puppies. Half German Shepard Half Black Lab. My 8 year old daughter is OBSESSED with animals. I thought, meh if I can handle 4 kids, why not! She is still having accidents in the house {Thank God for hardwood floors} but I blame it on the weather. It has been between 20 and 40 BELOW ZERO here and I just cant leave her outside longer than 2 minutes. Poor little baby will freeze to death. I decided to get her because I felt I needed her at this point in my life. I give out my attention constantly with my 4 kids. I needed someone to give me attention. Someone to run up to me and lick my face when I got done a 8 hour work day. And she does just that. She follows me everywhere, will lay on the bathroom floor while I shower and my bedroom floor while I get ready for work. I love her so much!!

{Five} I think I need a schedule. Actually I know I do, but it never works out for me. I need organization in my life. I need more to rely on than just High Five Fridays! I absolutely love waking up and reading blogs, I have way too many in my bookmarks bar but they are just all so amazing! I am fairly new to blogging and did not realize the whole picture of what it is all about until just recently. There are so many amazing people out there. INCLUDING YOU!! Thank you so much for taking a few minutes out of your day to read my post!!

I hope you all had a great Friday and continue to have an amazing weekend!! Until next time..

Excuse My RandomNESS!!

Oh my goodness! Hello beauties! I have had the most horrible blogging experience EVER. I have about 3 drafts saved from the last 3 days. I have began my blog posts, then life got in the way and I never got to finish or post them. I have been itching to get something up and last night I had the perfect opportunity but the boyfriend was near by and I couldn't!! {That's a whole post in itself I will explain in detail later on}. I just want to get this up, I never thought I would miss talking to you so much!!

Like I said, the last few days have been taking my whole attention. My first day off from work {Tuesday} I was like YES! The babies are being so well behaved I can get a blog post in today and probably catch up on my daily reads! Nope. As soon as that thought entered my head it was the battle of baby vs. baby for the remainder of the day. On top of that I was having a really stressful day from bill paying and such. So that day went by, with nothing accomplished except some laundry. Yesterday I felt as though I was on the go all day, then when the older kids got off the bus at 3:30pm, it was time to plan and make supper then give baths and off to bed they went. I had the perfect opportunity to sit down, come to my blog and breath. I usually catch up on youtube at night, which is what I ended up doing because like I said earlier, the boyfriend was right there. I know you are probably thinking, so what Tasha? Well the reason for that is many. Does he know I have a blog? Maybe he does if he sees my Twitter account at all. Or maybe he has never noticed it. I get very, is the word I am looking for self conscious? That may be the word I want to use. I am afraid of being talked to like what I am doing is dumb and stupid. "A blog? Why would you want to do that?" .. and those such things do you know what I mean?

Is it weird that I always want to erase and start anything and everything i am doing all over again? I was thinking about doing that with this blog yesterday. I was thinking, I should just erase it all and start fresh, maybe I go all over the place with this blog and maybe it would be better to keep it on one topic. Although deciding not to, it made me think, why do I always want to do that? Even with monthly planners. Sometimes I will use them as a diary and there has been many times I have bought new ones and in the new ones re-write every single day i already have in the old one. If that doesn;t make sense I guess I am trying to say I transfer all the writing and hard work, just to get a new looking design for my planner, or maybe I though a couple days weren't neat enough, my handwriting. I just did it with my phone last night. I completely restored to factory setting and re did everything. I do that quite often.

I received my MAC prolongwear concealer yesterday. This is the second time I have purchased it. I am kind of light-medium skin tone and the first time I bought it in a light color for highlighting. I think i had NC15 maybe? {Anyways I had their lightest color} and so this time I went a little darker because I want it to cover my freckles before foundation. I didn't want to go darker than my foundation though of course, so I went with NW25. I will have to say  I'm kinda scared. It looks super dark in the bottle. I double checked the color and it is written on the bottom of the concealer so I don't know. We will see this afternoon. I was going to test it on the back of my hand last night but I didn't want to waste one single pump!! They don;t sell that stuff for cheap!

I'm sorry this is all over the place I am just trying to include everything I wanted to the last couple days! And I am just happy I have stuff to write about. Most of the time when I sit down to write a blog post I just sit here and stare at the computer and think way too hard on what to write about that day. I could write on paper all day things I want to do or say, but when it comes time to type I get a huge "DUHH" moment! I have joined a couple link ups which I absolutely love and am so happy I found. Tomorrow I get to do the 'Five on Friday' link up, so I better keep this shorter than I wanted or I will have nothing to tell you tomorrow. :)

One more thing before I go that I will probably mention tomorrow but need to mention today too because I am TOO EXCITED! I joined up to do the Valentines Day Swap!! I got hooked up with Lindi and CANNOT wait to send out her package!! {Hope she doesn't get upset, I kind of have a shopping problem!} This is my first ever swap and I am glad I got such a sweet woman!!

Ok, sorry for the random shits fired. I have to stop for now or tomorrow I will be stuck in DUHH land again. I hope you all have an amazing day/night! It's back to work for me today, so until next time!!

Five On Friday!!

Happy Friday Beauties!! I almost ran out of time for this post, it's been one heck of a day. One of those days where time isn't on your side. At all. Know what I mean? This morning started off with me waking  up late {I set my alarm for 6 to be up before the kids and get their breakfast before school}. My alarm is a piece of crap {knew when I set it last night it probably wasn't going to work} and never went off this morning. So I never got up until 7:30. Bus comes at 8. So I had to wake the babies up and bring the kids to school today. The coldness outside pisses me off. Especially when I am not fully awake yet. Anyways, here I am with the 5 highlights of my week!! :)

{ONE} Haylee our now 3 month old puppy has been getting to me real bad. She has destroyed most of the girls barbies and little toys they received for Christmas. She is still peeing and pooping anywhere and everywhere, except outside. She would rather just go out there to hang out with the snow I guess. I don't know. That's all I can say is I don't know. It's just really frustrating. This is my first dog ever, so maybe it's just me being impatient, ignorant or stupid. Who knows.

{TWO} We had a  bitch fest meeting {mandatory} at work this week. It was basically to get everyone on 'the same page'. That was a fail. I didn't see anything come out of it at all. Was my day off but luckily we get paid for the one two hour meeting.

{THREE} On a positive note, the ipsy bag this month was AMAZING. I loved absolutely everything and I am pretty sure I valued everything at $45!! For a $10 fee I think that is pretty damn good. I was going to cancel this month too because for the last two months I have been so disappointed. To be so disappointed over $10 must really mean I HATED it. Ipsy grabbed me for another month though, lets hope they keep on being awesome!! Did you guys get yours yet?

{FOUR} I am already spending taxes that aren't here yet. I just want to make one big purchase really really bad. I want to get a mac book. Nothing extreme or too fancy, just the most easy and useful one they offer. No matter what. I always say I'm going to get this or that for myself and every single time I always bail out to try and 'save' the money. Which ends up being spent anyways so whats the point. I am going to get one and that is that! Hopefully taxes will be on and done within a couple of weeks.

{FIVE} Kind of on that same topic I am due for a phone upgrade and I am going to get my iPhone back. I have had a Samsung Galaxy for about 2 years now and after only the first week I was missing my iPhone. I think it's because it was more simple. I don;t like having to choose from 1 million themes or fonts. I'd rather it just be simple. You know? Why does life have to be so complicated?! 

Well that is all for now guys. I know it was boring as hell but this week has just been blah! 
Have an amazing day!!

Raising The Barrs

These guys { Jacob and Allison} do DAILY vlogs. They have 2 children Gavin & Berkley who are so so adorable. She just recently did an 'interview' with Gavin and it was absolutely hilarious!! These guys have been my favorite for a short period I just found them not too long ago and have a LOT of vlogs to catch up on. They don't seem to have any social media connection besides YouTube so that is a bummer :/

The Schuerman Show

I cannot say enough good things about this family. They have been a favorite of mine for a good couple years. I won my first ever giveaway from Sam! She is like the sweetest woman ever and the relationship she has with her children I am so amazed by. They are also the most well behaved children I have ever seen. They also do daily vlogs and Sam alsoo has her own makeup channel!

That Taylaa
I discovered Taylaa a while back, but then she had gone some time spent away with family so I hadn't seen many of her videos popping up. I'm not sure her exact plans now but she IS making more videos that are amazing and as far as her reviews, the bomb dot com.

Jotdam is the most sweetest and adorable person ever.She works super hard to do videos including every week on Mondays {if I am right} she does a "whats on sale at the druugstore" video and usually 9 times out of 10 if she does a product review and says he likes it, I'll be ata my local stores buying it!

The Lehoux Family
Next is Sara and her family! She is currently pregnant with baby #3. She is an amazing stay at home Mom with lots of support from her boyfriend. She does pregnancy series where she goes into details about her cravings, feelings etc and I think that 1st time Moms or even 3rd, 4th or 6th time Moms would find her very helpful and fun! 

Tiff & Yan
O.M.G. I started watching Tiff awhile back and what drew me into her was watching a vlog she was doing where Yan {her boyfriend} was in the background playing video games and the more I watched the more I was in shock of how crazy similar we are in so many different ways. They do not have children but they do have a dog whos name is Haileigh. She is very very spoiled!!

Melissa Raymond
You probably already are subscribed to the lovely Melmphs but if you aren't then you really need to check her out! She is hilarious and full of such a great energy that I enjoy watching! She puts up videos almost every day and they are always really informative and fun! 

Carah’s Life
I love these guys so much they are so super cute together. Carah is pregnant with baby #2 at the moment and is also a great stay at home Mom like Sara from The Lehoux Family! Def must check them out! They also do daily vlogs!!

Meghan Rienks
Meghan is someone I can watch and just feel at ease. She has an amazing life and her personality totally pulls you in. She is absolutely gorgeous and if you aren’t already involved in her awesomeness, you need to be!

Her accent. That basically describes my love for her. She has the most cutest accent ever ever. She has a little girl and husband and they also do daily vlogs. She is a somewhat stay at home Mom {she owns a hair salon but usually takes her little girl with her}. She does makeup reviews, ipsy unboxings, DIY and she taught me the best methods for going between hair washes!

She speaks what is on her mind, no matter what the outcome. She is the most straight forward person in the world. I just recently found her so I don’t have too much to say, but of you need a good laugh go check her out!

Alexa ‘Ra
Oh my, she is a sweetheart! She is currently going througha life changing experiencing after losing her Mom bacj in October 2013 in a horrible car accident. She has a brand new outlook on life, and she is doing amazing. I love her to pieces and know she is turning into one amazing person!

That’s all I have for now, just some quick ones I could think if that I have been obsessed with and watching! I hope you enjoyed!
