Exfoliating your Lips!

Exfoliating your lips will give smooth moisturized lips.
There are three different methods of exfoliating your lips.
The first way I know of is by using coconut oil and a toothbrushes with straight soft bristles. You scrub your lips gently with the coconut oil than leave on for continued moisture…
The second way I know if is to make your homemade lip Scrub with either Extra Virgin Olive oil and brown sugar/white sugar mixture. You create a paste by equal parts of a tablespoon each of part. The if you need to add more sugar to make a paste you can
I also use the Platinum Eye and Lip cream for the lips with the special tool!vaseline and tooth brush

Your organic reach is important to others seeing what you post!
A good way to do this is by messaging people ..
Create a positive vibe by liking posts on their timeline and then be bold and enter in to a conversation !
Start by saying hi and complimenting something you saw on their timeline.
I know this is crazy but… I noticed you coming through my news feed a lot and just wanted to say that I really … compliment ..
Or I heard one person say she sings happy birthday through messenger to starting getting a strong reaction..
you could follow that compliment by saying I noticed you get a lot of likes on your posts and seem to really have a great following you would be really great at what I do for work…
Let them ask what do you for work they are going to spy out your page for sure..
Then if they don’t already bring it up because in some cases they will ask would be open to earning some side money along with what you’re doing now!?
They may say yes they may say no but either way they way they are going to get you closer to the yeses!

A pumice part of the tool is a great way of softening and treating your rugged, rough feet!

You may also paint the toenails. In order to do that, use toe separators.

Put a base coat on your nails is a great idea. A base coat which is a bit opaque is a good idea because it provides robustness to the nail and prevents breakage.

Now apply your favorite shade of nail polish. Allow the initial coat to dry off. Repeat the process on the other feet and repeat.

Absolutely Love this product !


I bought this Anew Age-Transforming 2-in-1 Compact for me but at first I didn’t really give it credit because I love my True Color Flawless Ideal Foundation ! Still love this product still ! But I bought the compact foundation for my mother ! She is 82 going on to 83 and I love this for her because instantly it covered very well any spots she had from aging and it literally transformed her to looking much younger ! My mother is very wrinkled from Age and this compact helped her tremendously!

Give Value , Give Value , Give Value ! Sell!

direct sales
How do you get more sales? Whenever you want to sell product or services it is a good thing to keep in mind the idea of giving first before asking for that sales. In order to get repeat sales it is a great idea to give three times as much as you ask for the sell.
give then ask for business
How are you providing value to a customer or prospective customer in order to want to buy from you ? Why not buy from anyone .. giving them a reason to buy from you first and foremost is important to repeat sales. There are plenty other salespeople that are willing to sell to them so it is a good idea to have their mind gravitate towards you ! This literally works for all direct sales.
I want to give you an example of what I mean. Whenever I go out prospecting or looking to sell I give a lot of samples and coupons for things.. Online I give deals , special offers and giveaways in emails that subscribe to my website.
Email Marketing is a great way online to give to be asking for selling.
In person I create sample brochure goodie bags to give to people when I see them and then I hope they they will give me their information by asking if they want to be entered into a sweepstakes or sometimes I ask if it would be okay if I could follow up on the samples to see what they thought about them.

Tips and Tricks to applying Nail Polish!

Avon Nailwear Pro+ (1)
After reviewing a few different resources on tips and tricks on how to apply nail polish effectively I have got some pretty cool fun things for you to try and do.
One of the tips is before applying the nail polish it is great idea to clean your nails with Vinegar before applying ! It helps with how the nail polish lays on your finger nails.
vinigar nail polish
Always put on a base coat because it helps the nail enamel adhere to your nails and it makes the nail polish last longer and not peel off as quickly ..
apply a base coat
Before applying nail polish a no fail way to polish your nails is to add elmer’s glue around the nail and let it dry so when you paint nails and after drying them all you have to do is peel off the glue and wah lah “perfection”.
elmers glue 2
When you are applying your nail polish you only need three strokes. Put a bead of nail polish in the middle back of your nail and brush the one stroke down the center and one on the right and one on the left. Let the brush do the work brusk for you !

To dry your nails quickly. Apply Quick Dry Coat from Avon and air dry your nails for about 1 minute then take your air dry nails and stick your them into a bowl of cold ice water for another couple nails and they will dry quickly.

Happy Mother’s Day!

flower header
With mother’s day approaching soon I thought I would begin to search for ideas on how to make the Day awesome for my mother!
My mother is in her 80’s and I am blessed to be able to have her with me in my home! She lives with me and I am her caretaker .. and even my mother is 82 she is always there for me as well.
To start Mother’s Day out great you might consider making her Breakfast !
A special breakfast for my mom with be Swedish Crepes with cream cheese and strawberry preserves. A yummy gourmet speciality coffee some homemade creamer of her favorite flavor of choice!


Spending time with someone especially mothers mean a lot to them ! Set aside some time to visit with you Mom on mother’s day!
A Great Idea I thought was to get her or make her a handcrafted mother’s day where it can make her feel special because you took the time to give her a card that was unique to her.hand made mothers day car
It can be crafted by you or if your not crafty you can hire someone to make one for her!
This idea is of the folding paper card with the Tulips would be awesome because there could be a variety of messages to you mother to show her you love her and appreciate you!
One last idea among many I saw was the idea of framing a picture of you and you mother you can buy a pretty frame at a store or you can make one but I think it would be awesome idea !
mothersday photo
For a gift I like to be pampered so I will probably get my mom Fragrance Set of some Sort from my business my top two choices !
I hope you and you Mother have a very Blessed and Special Day ! 🙂
