New Month, New Collections, New Kudos!

I am amazed at all the new stuff there is to offer this month! I first want to start by saying; there has been some who look at what I'm doing and think that the only reason I am doing this is for the money...they would be dead wrong.

Am I bringing in some income, yes... is it much, no not really, not yet. But, money IS NOT why I sell Younique...I sell Younique because I love the products. [Read that again!--I LOVE THE PRODUCTS!]

The products I have from Younique don't irritate my skin, they don't make me break out, and the do instill confidence within me. The colors are fantastic, the quality is fantastic, and I can sleep soundly knowing that part of what I spend; and, part of what my customers spend goes to help women and children get out of violent situations.

Okay, so now that I've gotten that out of my system; I want to first tell you about the new Kudos!

Here's how it works:

Spend $75 get free Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect

Spend $125 get free Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect & 2 free Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Powders in Confident and Corrupted

Spend $175 get free Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect & 2 free Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Powders in Confident and Corrupted & free Lip Bonbons tinted Lip Balm in Red Velvet Cake

The more you spend, the more you get!

The new collections are AMAZING! My two favorite are:

You also get the eyeliner and pigment powders with each of these collections as free gifts. Order these and something small like a 3rd pigment powder and get the Lip Bonbons as well! 

You can check out the rest of the collections at
These are just my 2 favorite. 

The last thing I want to tell you about is the new presenter's kit! Yep, that's right, there is a new kit that  makes me envious that I didn't wait to join!

The presenter kit comes with 
3D Fiber lashes+
Addiction Shadow Palette
Splurge Cream Eye Shadow in Hopeful
Moodstruck Splash Liquid Matte Lipstick in Sentimental
Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect
Moodstruck Precision Lip Liner in Plush
Moodstruck Minerals Lucrative Lip Gloss in Lucid
Royalty Pore Purifying Cleanser
Royalty Uplift Beauty Serum
Royalty Rose Water Toning Spritz
Deluxe Eye Brush
Angled Shadow/Sponge Brush
The Purple Presenter Bag 
+ More!

  I am seriously so jealous! But, look at the value! Even if you don't want to become a Younique presenter, you can still get all of this for just $99, save yourself some money and be a "kit-napper" or sign up and get a discount on your makeup, or start working for yourself. Join my team today! I'd love to have you!! 

Well, that's all for now. Remember. Be Bold. Be Confident. Be unique. Be You!

It's Thrifty Thursday!

   Today is the day to save some money! I am going to show you a few tricks about how to save and still be able to afford quality makeup. Who doesn't need to keep their budget in check when it comes to their beauty regimen!

   Most women know, there's a lot that goes into being beautiful. Very few are gifted with naturally good looks, and natural beauty. Even those that don't wear much makeup still have skin care to worry about. While we are on the subject; remember, our skin is our biggest organ and our most vulnerable. We only get one, so we should take the best care possible to keep it nourished, vibrant, and healthy.

   So, the things we need to keep in mind are quality, price, and longevity when it comes to purchasing our beauty care products. There are three different levels of products to choose from: low quality, mid-quality, and high-quality. The prices for each reflect the quality; I guess the old saying is true: you get what you pay for.

   Within those categories there are products that are going to last a long time because they have so many toxins and preservatives that they refuse to go bad, but are terrible for your skin; or you have products that are so fresh and natural that they will only last you a week or two. For those that are packed with unhealthy and unnatural substances the price is low on your wallet, but high on your skin. These products are terrible for your skin! For those that don't last long, they sure do cost an arm and a leg, but most of them are wonderful for your skin.

   So what about those people that want to take care of their skin, without the price tag? Well, there is a solution and I'm going to show you that! It is not a sales gimmick, although I will tell you right now that I am a Younique presenter; but, I am not going to only show you Younique products. Do you know why? Because my makeup bag is filled with more than just Younique products, and I realize that in order to save some money, you may have to sacrifice for a little while to build up your healthy collection of makeup. I mean, that is why we are all here, right?!? To learn how to have quality products for a thrifty price.

   Now that I have your attention; what are your three 'can't live without' items in your makeup bag? For me it's eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara. I can go without everything else, all day long, but I feel naked without putting these three things on. So, these were the first items I chose to replace with quality products. I went from using drugstore eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara, to using Moodstruck from Younique, and Addiction from Younique, and I will tell you; there is a HUGE difference in quality; but not such a huge difference in price.

   Most people who are Younique presenters will tell you to save money with the collections. I will admit, there are HUGE savings to be had on the collections; in fact, you can save up to $107, but in order to do so you are purchasing a $406 collection for $299. Yes, the savings are GREAT! But, how many people have $299 just sitting around ready to spend on all new beauty care items? I wish I did, but I don't. Therefore, I have to build my collection one or two items at a time.

   The other thing that you can do, which I did, is sign up to become a presenter with Younique. The catch is that you really don't have to become a presenter, you can literally just become a 'kitnapper' and buy the kit for a really great price. The kit is just $99 and you get everything you need to replace most of the items in your makeup collection. Plus, if you choose to, you could actually build your own business and make some money as well. If you go that route, you can literally work for yourself and have the tools to do so, without keeping inventory on hand, for only a $99 investment. I don't know if you're interested, but I sure was!

   I will tell you, the quality of the products is outstanding. It is worth what you pay for it. The products are naturally based, paraben free, and aren't harmful for your skin. It also lasts for quite a long time. The 3D Fiberlashes mascara is one of the hottest, if not the hottest, selling items. It lasts for a very long time with every day use, I can tell you from experience.

   So, my advice; stop sacrificing your skin. If you have the money to spend on the collections, you can really save a huge amount. However, if you are like most of us; buy a little at a time. If you really want to save some money, follow me on facebook and watch for the deals. I usually hold a weekly sale. You can grab some great savings on your favorite items, every week!

Until next time; be bold. be confident. be unique. be you!

Why Detox with Bamboo Charcoal?

Bamboo Charcoal

   Activated bamboo charcoal is kind of like a miracle cleanser for skin. It is capable of removing all the 'yuckies' that are trapped within your skin and pores. It removes unwanted minerals, toxins, impurities, and other harmful substances you don't want in your skin, and it exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. Bamboo charcoal also oxygenates your skin, leaving you with healthier, softer, and stronger skin.

The best part about activated bamboo charcoal is that it is a NATURAL acne treatment! In fact it is commonly referred to as the black diamond in the skin healing industry. It is more absorbent than other soaps, which makes it more capable of cleaning deep into those pores and removing all of the nasty impurities. Not to mention that it leaves no residue on the skin after it is removed, fully cleansing, and then allowing the skin and pores to breathe.

Did you know that dirty, clogged pores can cause your skin to sag? Yea, me neither! Something I learned while researching for this article. Premature sagging due to clogged pores, can mean premature aging! No one wants that. Using bamboo charcoal as a cleanser allows you to avoid premature sagging and aging.

Additionally, bamboo charcoal has been shown to be beneficial in treating eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin...I mean, really! In fact, bamboo charcoal kills bacteria, allowing the skin to naturally heal itself; that's pretty powerful! It is also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial...

Can your current soap do all of that? ...

Have you ever used activated bamboo charcoal? Let me know below! Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Be Bold. Be Confident. Be Unique. Be You.

It's All About the Eyes

I sat on the fence for a very long time, wondering if I should take the jump and buy the all-new 3D 
Fiberlash Mascara from Younique... I finally decided to go for it. I figured if I didn't love it, I could 
always return it since they do have a Love It Guarantee! 

Well, not only did I love my new mascara. I took the plunge and became a presenter!That's right
folks, I now own my own business, sharing something that I love with the rest of the world!
I really struggled because I don't believe that women need make up to be beautiful. In fact, I hardly
wear any makeup at all. I didn't want to send the message that women needed to cover up their face to beautiful. However, I have found a new confidence, I have started to believe in myself even more now that I am a presenter; and it's not because I wear make up. In fact, it has nothing to do with wearing make up.

It is because I am pushing myself. I am proving to myself that I can do something, and it feels amazing! I have become brave enough to put myself out there without any make up, and have learned to love myself for who I am. I have learned to overlook the nay sayers and the haters. I am beautiful despite the opinion of others, because I love myself. The compliments I receive are icing on the cake. No longer do I shy away from conversation, I embrace it. I am reaching down to the center of my being and finding out who I really am...and that is all because Younique offered me this amazing opportunity.

Be Bold. Be Beautiful. Be Unique. Be You!
