hard candy heart attack

so last weekend when i was strolling through wally world i came across an amazing discovery!
walmart carry's hard candy cosmetics now!!
i know right?
in an almost panic, i dropped the basket i was carrying, and looked at every last item.
i seriously was so excited i couldnt hardly stand it.
i wanted to buy everything...but came to the realization that i already have boxes of make up (literally, left over pieces of lancome gratis-under my bed) at home.
so i picked a few pieces to try out.
liquorish walk the line liquid liner

pinup blush crush baked blush

american girl plumping serum gloss

and light sheer envy tinted moisturizer

i love them all so far!
the tinted moisturiser is a nice coverage and has spf 15!
the lip serum is a nice sting- not too burny like some plumpers are...and it smells yummy.
the liquid liner is great- but seems to take longer than my lancome liners to you have to be patient.
and the blush is awesome. can be used wet or dry. it has a nice bronzer in it...and i heart that.
wallyworld had a nice selection of bold colored shadows, liners, lipsticks,polishes, etc.
i was disappointed that they didnt have more foundation choices or any powders to choose from...but its a good start for walmart.
everything was under $10 which is nice for us cosmetic junkies and they had about a 100 choices of glosses which is also always good for the girl who already has 99 glosses in her purse.
needless to say i know next time i go to wallyworld i will swing by the cosmetic aisles and pick up some new shadows and lipsticks!
i also just noticed you can buy all of these things online here...and shipping is only .97 on beauty items!
score! now we dont even have to go to walmart if we dont want to!

eclipsed by glory

i love this song.
its amazing how some songs just speak volumes to you.
this song is powerful to me because it reminds me of what i was taught as a child. its amazing what we sometimes forget as we 'grow up', but how comforting a tiny reminder can be.

...i want to be eclipsed by glory.

wtf? (where's is the funding)

check this out friends: november is lung cancer awareness month.
my friend jennifer started this group called "WTF" ((Where's the Funding) for Lung Cancer) in honor of her brave (non-smoking) mama who is battling stage IV lung cancer that is inoperable and at this time incurable.
help us spread the word- lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the u.s. and these fighters deserve the funding for a cure!!!

here is what jennifer has to say:

"WTF" (Where's the Funding) for Lung Cancer?

Yeah, you get the double-entrendre. Some may find it a bit crude. I find it necessary to get peoples' attention - attention to THE #1 cancer killer in the U.S AND the most under-funded. Why? Well, the stigma of smoking.

My mom, Leslie Lehrman, who is 65 years-old and a life-long non-smoker, has stage IV lung cancer - inoperable, incurable. Yes, that's right, you DO NOT have to smoke to get lung cancer. Many people do NOT know this. And more and more people who have never smoked are being diagnosed and dying of lung cancer.

I will not let my mom die without having told her story and without making a difference.

It's time to take the stigma OUT of lung cancer - smokers or not - and get lung cancer the attention and funding it deserves.
Until then, I will continue to loudly scream, "WTF" for Lung Cancer?"

Wanna scream together?
