Finally! A Pair Of Polarized Prescription Shades To Beat The Sun


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

Yes! Finally, I get to own a pair of polarized sunglasses
I felt and looked funny while driving because I would wear my regular eyeglasses with my big sunglasses over them. I looked like a weirdo really but I didn't care because I needed to see.

Living in the South demands for shades so I learned that very quickly, and driving without them can be dangerous because the sun tends to be blinding at times.

Thankfully, I was contacted by to review a pair of their cheap glasses meaning cheap in affordable price but of course I was sent mine for the purpose of this review.

The frames I chose are the Kama Wayfarer and they retail $29.95, told you they have cheap prices.

All I did was submit my eye prescription and chose my style and they mailed it with in a month but if you order as a customer it takes 7 to 15 business days. You also have the option to add on extras like anti reflective coating, UV coating, different types of tint ranging from $4.95 -$12.95 but still under a $100 dollars unless you need a stronger prescription it may be a little more. 

My Stylish black Wayfarer glasses do not look cheap at all, they are very durable and made from the Acetate material. They come in a cute case with a lens cloth and they have a little star detail on the legs.

I'm so happy and blessed with these sunglasses because now I do not need to stack glasses on top of each other and look and feel like a weirdo. lol 

Yay! I can see in style and drive confidently without having to get blinded by the sun on the road.

GlassesShop has given me the code MarianMX20 to give to you, my readers if you are interested in trying out their frames. They have so many colors and variations to chose from and again their prices are great! And if you order over $49.00 shipping is free worldwide and they have customor service available from 10 am to 6pm Monday through Friday through email and by phone.
I'm so happy with my sunglasses:) here are some more pics of me sporting them.

The Organic Face Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Quad And Giveaway!


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

Ooh, do I have a beautiful shadow quad to show you. It's called Mesa from the Organic Face. 

These shimmery metallic shadows with gold undertones are very beautiful and pigmented and the packaging is super cute!

The Mesa Quad is encased in a silver round case with a mirror and with the hot pink Organic Face logo and is 10 grams.

These shadows retail for $24.99 and can be purchased on

Here are some swatches:
First row is without primer and second row is with primer

A Peach shade, A Bronze Shade, A Terracota and an Olive Green Shade
All Have Gold Flecks in them which is pretty cool and makes them unique

These Earthy Toned colors are silky and long wearing and can be worn dry or wet or transformed into an eyeliner.

I was surprised with the first color on the left which is like a light peach swatched but when I applied it to my lid, it turned into a darker peach almost bronze color. So to me, that was a relief because swatched it looked very sheer.

I decided to do a couple of looks with this quad and I'm very pleased with these shadows.

Here are the Mesa Femme Fatale Shadow ingrediants :
Mica (CI 77019), Oryza sativa (Rice) Powder*, Zinc Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Panthenol, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme)Extract, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum Bark Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavendula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract
Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Root Extract

And here is the first look I did with the Mesa Quad.
I decided to use 2 shadows for a more natural look and to show that using two shadows can also be enough in a look.

So, I used the light peach on my lids and lower lash line and the bronze on my crease and lower lash line as well. I also winged the shadow out a bit something I really don't do but I wanted to experiment. Because, the quad does not have a lighter color I decided to use a highlighter creamy pencil for my browbone and I tight lined my eyes with a black kohl pencil.

For the second look I decided to use the olive color with gold flecks on my lid and the terra-cotta color on my crease and I used both of these colors for my lower lash line. The look came out very elegant yet very simple and very easy to accomplish just by adding some mascara ,tight lightning my eyes with a black kohl pencil and lining my water line.
I did use a flesh toned shadow for my browbone as a highlight. But the choice is yours on how you opt to wear this quad.
Mesa is also great for creating  daytime and evening looks.

Overall, I was very impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these shadows. I do wish they had names on them and maybe a highlighter shade in the center but I guess it wouldn't be considered a quad then lol 

But Yes, these shadows are gorgeous and they lasted well over 8 hours on my lids with primer.

Sweet Sweet Almond Oil And Giveaway Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah


Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

Ahh, the title reminds of the song Sing Sweet Nightengale from the Disney movie Cinderella. But that's because I'm a singer so I associate with words and music all the time.

Today is all about the Sweet Sweet Almond Oil from the company eHsense Naturals there I hummed it again lol

Sweet Almond Oil is a carrier oil that dilutes the potency of essential oils like the Peepermint, Lavender Ect.

This Oil is unscented and can be used as a makeup remover, for hair and skin conditioning, to soothe chapped lips, improve dark circles, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and can be used as a cosmetic base for shea butter, sugar scrubs, and soap making, massages and so much more.

Sweet Almond Oil is very good and beneficial for your skin in so many ways, it is rich in Vitamin E and D as well as minerals such as calcium and magnesium. 

The bottle I recieved from eHsense Naturals is 16 ounces , it comes with a pump for a more convenient dispensing of the oil, it is 100% all natural cold pressed and can be used alone or mixed with essential oils.

It also comes with a little card with a few examples on how you can use it with certain essential oils and of course the web is filled with recipes and more.

I decided to do more shea butter and added the sweet almond oil, plus sweet orange oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and lavender this time. 
Look at the previous post on how I did shea butter body cream for the first time and be sure to measure because this second time around mine looked more creamier than whipped but it still felt nice and looked beautiful. So less oil makes a nice whip:) and more oil makes it creamier:)

You can get this awesome Almond Oil from eHsense Naturals on Amazon for $16.99

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes.

Jacki Easlick, a Manhattan based Handbag Designer designed a special unique hook to help women organize their handbags in their closet. These special hooks are called Tote Hangers but they were first used by Jacki to hang and organize her own handbag prototypes in her office.  

Then, the Patented and designed Concept took flight out of her office and into the Container Store where it's available to every woman for purchase for $9.99.

Six hooks come in one package and allow your handbags to be organized, kept protected and look elegant as well in your closet. The Tote Hangers are made out of nickel and the size is 3-3/4"h x 2"w and you simply hang it on a closet rod. 

Here is a demo of my handbag using one of the Tote Hangers just so you can see how easy it is to hang. 
Unfortunately, my closet space is not that big and I have a lot of clothes using up the racks so when I get rid of some things then I can properly use all 6 hangers.
Also make sure to hang your handbags empty so that they can hang effortlessly without the bulk.

So, There you have it Tote Hangers for your special handbags. I think its a cool concept and it really keeps your handbags clean and nicely organized.

The Yorkshire MayFair Flannel Sheets: My Experience

Leave a Comment

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

This will be the first time that I use Cotton Flannel sheets and I have to say I really like how they felt and how I felt when I slept in them.

When I received The Yorkshire Mayfair Flannel Sheets, I decided to wash them first and see how they handled the wash.
Well, after I dried them I did see pilling but they were still soft to the touch and I didn't even use fabric softner.

I usually sleep with my ceiling fan on and I cover myself with a heavy plush blanket although I live in a hot climate, I'm always cold at night.
But, I wanted to see how these flannel sheets felt and and made me feel while I was sleeping without my heavy blanket.
I have to say I slept very comfortable and I did not get over heated at all.

I pretty much slept in and forgot to get up until my hubby woke me up. lol That's how comfortable I was.
So, My experience sleeping with The Yorkshire Mayfair Flannel Sheets was very pleasant.

Oh Yes, I did forget to mention that I sleep on my silk pillowcase so this material never touched my face, which is good for me because I tend to have sensitive skin so I did not want to sleep on it but that does not mean you can't use the pillowcase to sleep on.

This Dark Grey  Queen sized sheet set contains a fitted shitted, a flat sheet and 2 pillow cases and be found on Amazon for $60.00 and in a variety of colors.

But in my opinion $60.00 is a little to steep for this set but hey if you can afford it then Go for it!

Here I'm displaying how it looks on my Queen Size Bed

And How it looked up close with some pilling

Finally An Oil Diffuser! My Experience


Press SampleProduct given by the Company for Testing and Review Purposes at a Discounted Price

I never owned or used a diffuser before so I'm happy I purchased this diffuser by Soothing Lotus. It's very lightweight and easy to use as you follow along with the directions on the little booklet it comes with.
I love all the led colored light choices that you can choose which colored light to keep on.
I decided to use my Lavender Oil and that not only filled my living room with a beautiful scent but it also relaxed my senses. 
I also tried it with Peppermint Oil and it left my room with a invigorating and strong minty scent. 
I did notice I poured more drops than recommended in the diffuser so thats why the minty scent was so potent but still I felt like it opened my nasal passages which is great for this allergy sufferer.

This almost makes me want to not invest in candles anymore but I still like my candles from time to time so I'll use both. lol 

In the picture collage I'm filling the diffuser with water to it's max level then adding 5 drops of Lavender Oil to it.  I Plugged into the outlet then I pressed the right button to hear it beep then the mist started. And then I pressed the left button for my 6 led color choices. The diffuser stays on until the water runs out then shuts off. But of course I'd watch it to see how much water is left.

I'm really enjoying the experience of a diffuser so much that I'm buying one for my Mother for Mother's Day. 
And if you are in need or never experienced one and want to try one out, click here on Amazon 
The oils are purchased separately.
