NARS Cosmetics Website

I love makeup - but probably don't wear it enough.  I am always, though, up for trying new products and new lines.

I discovered a website called NARS cosmetics which sells a variety of makeup online - from lipstick and foundation to brushes and makeup removers.

I was looking through the lip gloss and lip laquer products and they have some great, bright colors - perfect for the holidays!  In addition, I noticed that many of their lipsticks are "exceedingly longwearing." Now, that is just what I need.  I can't STAND when my lipstick comes off 30 minutes after I apply it!  Who has time, with three kids, to constantly reapply lipstick!?

I also saw a big section on their website for gifts - perfect since Christmas is just around the corner.  They have a wide selection of gifts, separated by gifts under $50 and ones above $50.  Every woman always needs more makeup, right?
If you're in the mood for some new makeup shades or products, or even some holiday gifts, check them out.

Butcher Block, Stainless Steel and Adirondack Chairs Websites

I have a myriad of tastes when it comes to decorating a home.

When I attended college in rural Pennsylvania, I developed and affinity for butcher block tables and counters.  Maybe it was the Amish influence of the area, but I have always admired a kitchen done in that style.   I was pleased to find the Butcher Block Co. website which sells so many of these products that I enjoy.

Other pieces of furniture I'd really love to have in my home are adirondack chairs.  My best friend has two on her front porch and I love to visit her and sit in them, hot cup of coffee in my hand, as we watch the kids play in front of her house.  Adirondack Chairs, Inc. has a great selection of those.

I have another friend who did her kitchen all in stainless steel - like a commerical kitchen - equipped with even a utility sink. It looks fabulous!  If you're interested in going down that road in your own home, check out the Stainless Steel Sink Store.

No matter what your decorating style, there are companies out there designed to suit your needs!

Popcorn and Raisins

Nov 16, 2010

My kids always make a complete mess of my car.  Usually, the mess involves food - snacks I have provided for them.  My husband is constantly saying that I shouldn't let them eat in the car, but of course, he doesn't drive with all three of them, for an hour, in rush hour traffic to get them home from school at night.  Food spilled in the car is the least of my worries.  At least, with a snack in their mouth, they have a harder time screaming at the top of their lungs.  The food, though, does nothing to stop foreign objects from being thrown close to my head.

Yesterday, on one of those snack-filled car trips, my four year old spilled his popcorn all over the backseat and the floor.  I told him he'd better clean it up.  He threw a fit.  I stood my ground and ultimately, his sister ended up assisting him by leaning over from her seat to help him get the pieces that were out of his reach.

By the time we got to a stop light, the kids were done cleaning.

"Mom," my 8-year-old daughter said to me.  "We picked up all the popcorn and we even found some raisins, too."

"Great," I said, with perhaps a little too much sarcasm in my voice because, clearly, my tone wasn't lost on my daughter.

"Mommy?" she asked.  "Why is it that sometimes, when you say 'great,' I feel like you're really saying, 'Oh, brother?'"

Flexible Careers for Moms

Nov 8, 2010

As you probably know by now, I am a mom who stays home with her kids, but also works a BUNCH of part-time jobs to bring in some extra cash.

I have been really, really fortunate to find employment opportunities that pay well, allow me to use my BRAIN, and help me work around my kids' schedules.

Thus, when I find other companies that are doing the same for women and moms out there, I need to pass them along.

Moms Corp is a company that provides moms the opportunity to find great FLEXIBLE employment.  Employers post on their job board and potential employees can search through the job openings.

They are not in every city yet, but they are getting there!

Employers realize, when they post on this site, that the people searching for work NEED to be flexible.

Click here to sign up with them (it's FREE) and look for work!

Let me know if any of you find any good jobs!

School Scholarship Websites

I used to work as a high school counselor and, a big part of that job entails helping students find scholarships.  I wish there had been a website like "School Scholarships" to help me a few years ago!

On this site, you can find a huge number of scholarships and financial aid information - and the website is completely free.

They have information on everything from black scholarships, geared towards finding grants for African American students, to engineering scholarships, where there are programs all students can apply for, or ones specifically designed for minorities or women.

If you have a student headed off to school soon, make sure to stop at this site first!

Bed Bath Store Website

My husband and I own two sets of sheets - one set we LOVE and one set we HATE!!  Right now, the "hated" sheets are on the bed and we are anxious to switch back to the fabulous ones.  There is nothing worse than a bad night's sleep because the bedding is uncomfortable!

I was just made aware of a website that specializes in bedding, bath and home decor.  So, if you're looking for new bedding by Veratex or new new bedding by Triangle Home Fashions, you might want to check out this site.  (By the way, I saw some allergen-free bedding when I was browsing!)  I think some new sheets are will be arriving at our house in the near future!

I also saw some modern stools and chairs on their site.  I was intrigued by the outdoor fireplaces, since it's getting so cold outside!

I hope you find what you're looking for!
