Enhance your looks with Younique Make-Up! | Review + A Giveaway


*Disclosure: I received the following items at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 

Being that I am a natural blonde, my eyelashes are also a dark blonde. Ever since I was a young teenager and allowed to wear make-up, I liked and still like wearing mascara. As I'm getting older, I'm noticing my lashes getting thiner and shorter. I recently was contacted by an Independent Presenter for Younique, Megan Eckstrom. Megan asked if I would be interested in reviewing Younique's best selling product, their Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, and I knew right away that I would love to! Megan also sent me a Lucrative Lip Gloss in the color 'Lethal'.


Right away, I was impressed with the packaging of the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes. They have their own case...that right there should tell you how special they are! In the Moodstuck 3D Fiber Lashes case, you have a Transplanting Gel & Natural Fibers.

About the Moodstuck 3D Fiber Lashes:
Our simple three-step process combines Transplanting Gel and Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. Watch as your lashes transform into something you have only dreamed of! The 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant but easily washes off with warm water and facial cleanser at the end of the day. Try it! It will quickly become your favorite makeup must-have! (adapted from https://www.youniqueproducts.com/MeganEckstrom).

Applying the 3D Fiber Lashes is simple in 4 easy steps:

1.) First, you apply one thin coat of your own regular favorite mascara and make sure that it fully drys on your lashes. 

2.) Then, you apply Moodstruck Transplanting Gel to your lashes.

3.) Immediately following and while the gel is still wet, apply the Moodstruck Natural Fibers. 

4.) Next, you reapply the Transplanting Gel a second time to secure the natural fibers onto your lashes. 
Below you can see my right eye's (on your left) top lashes have the applied Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes on, and on my left eye (your right) I only have my regular mascara on. You can really tell the difference!



At first I was nervous putting on the natural fibers onto my lashes because I wear contacts and I knew I had to be extra careful to not drop any fibers into my eyes. The wand is so easy to use and I'm happy to report that the fibers do not just fall of the wand and do go on smoothly on my lashes. You need to make sure that the Transplanting Gel is still wet for you to apply the Natrual Fibers, and then make sure you apply the Transplanting Gel right away once you get the Natural Fibers on-- to seal the deal! 

I'm super impressed with how much they lengthen and thicken my eye lashes! I have only been wearing them on my top lashes, but I think they would look great on the lower lashes as well. I recently did my mom's eye lashes and she too was amazed, impressed and loved her new look!



You may be wondering, how does the fibers wash off? Just like my normal mascara, I wash my face with warm water and then use my gentle eye make-up remover and I have no problems at all! Even though they wash off rather easily, the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant-- I love that!

I also really love the Lucrative Lip Gloss in the color Lethal. I usually wear more natural colors, but every girl has got to have a red lip stick or lip gloss! It's too fun and just makes you feel extra pretty! I love the Lucrative Lip Gloss wand, it's flat and easily to apply to my lips. It has a great glossy finish as well. I do find that I have to reapply about 2 hours after I've been wearing it, but that is because of the bright color I chose and that also seems like normal timing to me for reapplying lip gloss. 

I recently dolled myself up for a date night with my hubs and with the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes and my Lethal red lip gloss, this is what I came up with...


I'm absolutely in love with my new look and now know why I'm seeing and hearing to much hype about Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes! You just have to give them a try, it's such a great kit!

Connect: Stay connected with Younique by Megan Eckstrom on her website and Instagram.

Buy It: You can buy Younique's Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes for $29.00 and their Lucrative Lip Gloss for $15.00 each (comes available in 10 shades).

Win It: One lucky fan is going to win Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, a $29 value!

Speck iPhone 5c Cases Review {+ A Giveaway}


*Disclosure: I received the following items mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced.

Having a cell phone these days, for most people, is very important to have. I know it's important for me because I not only use it to keep in touch with family and friends via phone calls and texts, but I also have my email on there, my calendar with appointments, and so much more! Needless to say, it is also important to keep cell phones well protected so that you can keep your phone safe from damage and keep it nice looking as well as working correctly! With flat screen smartphones these days, one drop to the ground and even the slightest hairline crack on your screen can cause you to not be able to use it properly or at all (had that happen to me once)! Then you'll be shelling out $600-$800 for a brand new phone-- not cool!!

My husband and I recently each got new iPhone's-- the 5c in particular. I personally have always been an LG droid fan, but my husband finally talked me into getting an iPhone since I love our MacBook Pro laptop. I recently came across Speck Products and their really nice durable cell phone and tablet cases and knew I wanted to give their iPhone 5c cases a try. We ended up deciding on their CandyShell Case in White/Charcoal for my husband's iPhone, and the GemShell Case in clear to show off my pretty pink iPhone!


The CandyShell Case has 2 layers of military-grade protection in a single-piece case.  They come available in 10 colors and retail for $34.95  What I like about this case, is that it is still sleek and slim enough to slide in and out of pockets, plus it also has a rubber inside and reinforced corners for the daily bumps and occasional drops that your phone might go through. My husband loves the white/charcoal look and is very happy with his new case.


I for one have never been a huge fan of clear cases. I have always wanted fun pattern and vibrant color cases on my phone to really show it off. Since getting a new phone with a really cool pink color, I didn't want to hide that color at all. I saw that Speck has a clear GemShell Case that would fit my iPhone 5c perfectly! This case sells for $29.95  The case itself if slightly flexible, but definitely durable. At first I had to really get use to pushing the on/off button on top of my phone because it took a little more pushing down than normal-- the case goes over that button with a raised button look. Overall, I love my case and hope that it stays clear and does not turn blue from jeans or yellow from "time".

Speck has so many great cases, for smartphones, tablets and laptops! Be sure to check them out and to fully protect your devices!! Trust me, you do not want to accidentally have one of your devices get damaged and have to buy a brand new one.


Connect: Stay connected with Speck Products on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Win It: One lucky fan is going to win a Smartphone case and tablet case, both of their choice!

*Disclosure: Jessica from IHeart-Motherhood received the following items mentioned in this post at no cost to facilitate her review. All opinions are her own and were not influenced. 

I'm a huge fan of granola & my entire family loves snacking, of course I don't mind snacking during the day as long as it's on something healthy! I was recently introduced to Sweetgrass Granola & I couldn't wait for my family to try out their granola!

Shipped all the way from Kentucky & started by a young farming couple by the name of Jacob & Carolyn Gahn, who were seeking an alternative for processed sugary desserts. Sweetgrass Granola currently has four mouth-watering flavors available, I was sent all of Sweetgrass Granola flavors which included: 
  • Cherry Home Companion
  • Cinnamon Kane
  • Germantown Chocolate
  • Kentucky Harvest
All of the granola at Sweetgrass is made with Kentucky grown & natural ingredients, sweetened with sorghum syrup & blended with healthful extra virgin olive oil. Their granola contains no GMO's, preservatives or refined sugars. 

Every bag contains ingredients like organic whole rolled oats, wildflower honey, sea salt, pure bourbon vanilla extract & more! 


Sweetgrass granola is sweet, crunchy & is the perfect combination of flavors! Granola is great to bake with, enjoy with milk for breakfast or if your like me, I just eat it right out of the bag! 


Hands down my favorite was the Cherry Home Companion while my children were grabbing the Germantown Chocolate by the handfuls!
