Montagne Jeunesse

Another produt review From my INFLUESTER, Holiday VOX BOX.
On todays agenda is Montagne Jeunesse- Face mask.

Overall. I am not impressed with this product. allthough I like the price point, I just dont love Mask. My scent was Strawberry. Very weird for a face mask I think. It did feel a bit soothing, and tingly while on my face, but I did not notice my skin any softer, or better in any way after using this mask. This is a thumbs down for me.

Here is a link to their site- and a little about the product I am reviewing.....

imPRESS Press-on Manicure review

I recently recieved Impress press on Nails. from my Holiday Vox Box, through Influnester.
Here is a pretty plain and simple review on this product. ALlthough I like the idea, and the simplicity of this product, I would only re-buy if some changes were made to the product. The main issue is they DONT FIT! I dont evenhave big nail beds, and they were much to small. IF they were to create sizes that would fit, I WOULD consider buying these for a manicure in just minutes. I dont normally wear nails, so these are really a great idea for those who want nice nails for a night out.

Pros- NO drying time, FAST, Easy removal,Great designs.
Cons- Not very Thick or strong, THEY DONT FIT. Not enough variety in sizes. They will not last the advertised 7 days.

Check them out here

LONG overdue update

Well, I am confident there is NO possible way to totally update in one or even 10 posts. I cannot believe the last time i blogged was BEFORE i moved to Germany. SHAME ON ME! lol

Tyler and I Joined Gary in Germany late November. We had a Brutally COLD winter here, and MISSED Az winter weather, family,and friends for sure!!! We have been SO happy to be back with Daddy though. Now that summer is here, and the weather is FInALLY getting nicer (in june I should add) we have been loving it here. This post is a Bit wacky, but our family is together again!!! I will make it a point to get on here more next week and upload pictures and update on life in EUROPE!!!!! the sights, and castles are AMAZING!

Right now I am working on a HUGE order. 53 pages to be exact... I started them Thursday and they need to ship to the uk MONDAY (its its Friday night) AHHH I should not be blogging right now!

I DO have plenty of time on my hands, and PLENTY to rant AND Rave about, when not working on Crazy orders :) I will be back soon to update. As of now, we are all well and made it to Germany.

And Some Pictures :)

I have totally neglected my Blog YET AGAIN! here are some new pictures from the past few months. we Visited Gary in MD 2 times and had a FABULOUS time each visit :)

I went to MD for a few days without Tyler for the 4th of July. I swear I fell Madly in Love all over again this weekend. This picture says it all.

Another picture for the 4th of July. WOW Is he handsome in Uniform or what!!!??

Tyler and I both went to MD for Gary's 27th Birthday.
This picture was taken By the Bay on Base.

HAPPY birthday Daddy!
We Brought him a cake and spent another night on base with him

What a STUD!!

This gun is FAKE, just for traning,
but WOW, look at the TOUGH guy!

A favorite picture of mine from our trip.

We LOVE Rock state Park in MD

We walked around the inner Harbor and visited the Baltimore aquarium
We didnt mind the rain, we had eachother :)

I wish I could describe the love between these two,
and how excited Tyler was to be in Daddys world of tanks while we were on Base.

Just a Random shot of my HANDSOME little Love.

I discovered these collages and fell in Love!


WOW! SO much has happened since I last posted. I have been fairly scarce on ebay :( Aside from a few custom orders, I havnt been doing a whole lot of scrap booking and I miss it! You may or may not have seen in my auctions, but......


Crazy right? About 6 months ago my husband Joined the Army, Completed BCT in June and has been in Maryland now for almost 11 weeks doing his advanced training to be a tank mechanic. He hasnt slept in my bed now in over 5 months, and I just want him BACK ALREADY!! So He gets HOME in a little over a week :):):) Sept 16th to be exact. Then we will have a month in Arizona to spend time with our families and friends, and we than start our Journey to Germany. After training all active duty soldiers get orders to a Duty station (called a PCS) and out of his whole company in AIT, he was one of the Few NOT going to Ft.HOOD Texas. BAUMHOLDER, Here come the Bersets. Its quite the process to get sponsored to get a visa in Germany, so Its likely I wont get to go WITH gary in the end of Oct, but we are praying if we have deferred travel orders, Tyler and I will be in Germany with Daddy shorty after him, if not WITH him.

I am kind of at a loss for what this means for Julies Pieces :(:( Of course I will still be creating. Of course I hope more wonderful customers will still want Julies Pieces INTERNATIONAL creations :):) Shipping will be a whole new ball game for me, Hopefully using the FPO/APO will be a good experience. I did check out the German EBAY, and WOW... EVERYTHING is in German... I was flat out LOST :(:( I am taking German lessons and know some key words and Numbers and 99.9% of the German ebay was flat out gibberish.

Ayyway..... can you tell I ramble yet?

So we will have our belongings shipped overseas. regardless of when Tyler and I get to Germany, Our Stuff wont be there for a month or 2, so I will be MIA in the scrapbook community At least that long. No cd's No layouts, no Nadda :(:( I sure hope to remain with my fabulous design team and be back active in the community after Christmas. I hope to keep in touch with my fabulous Customers/Friends in the Ebay-Scrapbook Community. Thanks to everyone for your support over the years. Its been a wild ride and I cant wait to Be creating in GERMANY!!!!

Skiing in Flagstaff

So i have really neglected my Blog and am feeling chatty today so here I am again! Because my hubby is leaving in a few short weeks, we are trying to do lots together and making lots of memories to hold onto while he is gone. Last week we made a trip up to flagstaff, AZ ( a few hour drive Up north in Arizona) and went skiing! here are a few pictures of us "tearing up" the slopes. This was only my second time skiing. I can tell I am getting older and wiser. The first time we went skiing 4 years ago I ski'd down a black diamond slope (VERY STEEP for advanced skiers) this time we did beginner slopes and one intermediate slope. I refused to do anything that made me shake in my ski's!!! lol

Here I am on the Bunny slope getting familiar with the Ski's.

and here is the Love of my Life.If you have ever been skiing you know its VERY exhausting! If i could give any advice I would say DONT drive after a day of skiing, get your hotel the Night after skiing and not before... we always make this mistake and drive home POOPED!

Allthough Tyler is one year too young to Ski, My mother in law drove up later in the day with Tyler to let him r play in the snow. (we dont get ANY snow where we live)I know where my husband aquired his selflessness trait. Gary and his mom and are the most generous people I know. They will do anything to make the people they love Smile. I am so blessed to call them both my family!Here are Tyler, Gary and my Mother in Love Sharon.
We had such a nice mini trip!
