First Impressions ~ Pure Silk Raspberry Mist

Makeup Maniacs I am flat out loving the Pure Silk Raspberry Mist Shave Cream with Aloe!  I was sent a complimentary can of this fruity-scented goodness by Influenster via the Fresca Vox Box for testing purposes, but all opinions are my own.  For more information regarding Influenster please click here.

Now let me tell you why this stuff is great...

First off, this smells amazing!!

Secondly, it is super thick and provides a rich lather that helps me get a smooth shave.  This prevents nicks and cuts.

Third, because of the aloe that this product contains, I am left with silky skin once I am done shaving.
You can get 5 fluid ounces of this stuff for approximately $5 and it is well worth it.  If you are interested in trying this product, you can purchase it by clicking this link.

So, on a 5 star scale, with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best, I give this product 5 stars!  Go check it out for yourself!  If you've tried this already, please let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

My 42nd Birthday!

Today is May 6, 2015 and I turned 42 years old!  Makeup Maniacs, I am so grateful to have reached this ripe age.  However, there are times when I think I should be in a different place in my life.  More established.  More successful.  I believe this type of thinking is normal, and it keeps me growing as an individual.

I have always been a "day dreamer".  As a child I truly believed I would be famous one day.  At different stages of my life, I thought I'd do something great.  Win the Nobel Peace Prize.  Be the world's best child psychologist.  Be the author of the great American novel.
Although I never achieved any of the above "goals", I am quite accomplished.  I have a college degree.  I have two children who are healthy, polite, and do well in school.  I have a steady job, a loving husband, and an amazing extended family!

So, even though I have never won the Nobel Peace Prize, what I have and what I do is quite fulfilling.  Happy Birthday to me!
