What Do You Think About Blog Sales!

I have been thinking about doing a few blog sales for  items (some slightly used) such as perfumes, books, jewelry making materials, etc.... And I kind of wanted to avoid listing on etsy and/or ebay and  racking up  fees. Prices would be extremely reasonable or one would need to pay for shipping only.   Has anyone out there done a blog sale? If so, how did it work out for you? Is is first come first serve? Please let me know if you have an opinion on this. Thanks!

I Have A New Twitter!

I  have another  twitter account (  which will be a little more professional than my other account (! I decided to create a new account because I am in the job market and I'd like to focus on getting work and making connections. I will still tweet about my jewelry and what I am making but will keep the foolery out of it. Lol! That means less le sighing, ranting, OMGing, LMBO, Oh LAWDing, cackling, posting of ridiculous photos, etc...... but I will still add a dash of my personality as to not bore people. And just to be clear, I am not closing my old account and I will tweet from it too. I merely want to have a more focused, streamlined account as well. And I have seen several people who have personal and professional accounts which seems to work for them. So if you'd like to follow please do so and I will return follow.

Indie Find: The All Natural Face Cosmetics

I have been wearing mineral foundation for at least five years (various brands) and I usually wear the loose powder versions because my skin has always been bit on the oily side. However, my skin has been a little dry lately and powders seem to only make my face look drier and they also accentuate pores and other blemishes. So, I decided to look for a mineral foundation stick (sticks tend to be more moisturizing and have more coverage) and my search brought me to The All Natural Face Cosmetics which offers a wide variety of very affordable natural mineral based cosmetics including foundation/concealer sticks.

As I read the description of the foundation stick I thought it sounded it great.  It's vegan and contains argan oil and jojoba oil which are great for the skin.  I definitely wanted to try it and at that particular time there was  a huge sale so the sticks were only $3.50 each (regularly $5). I ordered 3 in three different potentially matching shades of which there is a wide selection (check photo below).  Along with the foundation I also bought a brow powder.

I got my order a few days later,  tried everything out and I was very pleased. The foundation felt creamy, not oily and dried to a nice barely there finish. The coverage was really great, a little bit goes a long way,  and one of the shades was an absolute perfect match for my skin tone. The brow powder is nice too-it makes my brows look very natural as oppose to a brow pencil.  I must also mention that I received samples of  eyeshadow and gel eyeliner which I really liked so I went back and placed another order for the liner, some shadows, and I got mascara. I should be getting this order soon and I can't wait.
