My New Business Adventure!

I know, I know...

I barely have time to parent 5 kids. I'm in school full-time to become a teacher. I'm honeymooning with my wonderful husband and trying to find time for him.

But friends, I tried Lipsense by SeneGence and was absolutely AMAZED.

I have worked in the beauty industry for 20 years (!!) and have heard ALL the promises for long lasting makeup. I stopped believing that it was possible.


So, I set out to share this magic everyone.

Yes, I am busy. But this stuff is just simply amazing. And trust me- if you try it, you WILL be hooked.

And that's why I joined an MLM. Because it is the ONLY line that I've tried in 20 years that does what it says that it will do.

That and the fact that Lipsense is: 

*Completely Smudgeproof
*Vegan- Not Tested On Animals

It was just a no-brainer.

Visit my Facebook Group or email me at 


to ask me any questions or to place an order!

Oh, and please check out and share my new blog:


Thanks for reading, friends!

Oh, and coming soon...posts on the rest of the SeneGence International Line!

New Giveaway- Gorgeous Jewelry, Just in Time for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day Giveaway

Friends, I am EXTREMELY excited about this giveaway.

It is amazing. It is beautiful. It is planet-friendly AND it supports organ donation.

And it is oh-so-perfect for Valentine's Day.

flutterELLE is donating one Valentine's Collection Piece Bracelet to one very lucky reader!

My friend, Jess, started her own business creating stunning jewelry for HER, SIR and JR.

I'm seriously in LOVE with everything that she makes. 

I met Jess years and years ago in college. Thankfully we have kept connected over the years because Jess has encouraged me when I was in low times, and is just an absolutely gorgeous person- inside and out.

She co-founded a not-for-profit company called Because I Can (becauseicanproject.com) that supports organ donation in Canada. A portion of every purchase of the advocate collection flutterELLE jewelry supports this incredible charity.

This wife and mom of three designs and creates the jewelry herself. And have I mentioned that it is all stunning!!??

(From the website):

The Butterfly Effect

The BUTTERFLY EFFECT stems from the concept that small causes can have large effects. Our family motto is, BE the change you wish to see in the world. It is not our personal responsibility to change the world, but it is our responsibility to change OUR world. To flutterELLE, the butterfly symbol represents expressions of transformation, growth, beauty, change, diversification + strength.

Each piece from flutterELLE is authentic + hand-made with equal parts precision + care. Our collection pieces are inspired by cherished individuals who have graced our lives with significant impact + love. Each one has a unique story, as we believe that every story matters. Our company is family derived + proudly Canadian. x.

Gorgeous jewelry. Hand-crafted. 

Proudly Canadian. 

Need I say more?
