Flawlessly beautiful skin in one step with Olay Total Effects CC Cream.
The benefits of Anti-Aging plus a Beauty Balm, to create Color and Correction for a youthful look.  Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen combines a daily anti-aging moisturizer, SPF 15 sunscreen and sheer tint for younger-looking skin. Olay Total Effects fights the 7 signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. It helps to even out tone and provides nourishing moisture while creating a barrier to keep it locked in. Plus, it exfoliates and recaptures a youthful luminosity.
This product should be applied 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapplied every 2 hours. Refer to the packaging for other helpful anti-aging tips and additional directions.

Minnesota this time of year, is pretty rough on a person's skin, especially mine. My daily regimen involves lotion and moisturizer. Lots and lots of moisturizer. When I tested out the Olay Total Effects cream, I decided to go for it without first applying any moisturizer to my face. With this one claiming to be 'moisturizer' ~ I wanted to see just what that entailed, & if it could live up to my winter needs.
This product is very creamy and did a GREAT job moisturizing my skin. It went on smoothly and did not feel thick or greasy. It comes in three different tones, but I, however, got a tone that was much to dark for my fair, winter, hasn't-seen-the-light-of-day in months, skin. If you are fair/light skinned like myself, I recommend going with the fair to light product. The light to medium ended up being way too dark and while it was great for wearing around our house and I loved the light, moisturizing feel on my skin - it was just too dark to wear anywhere. You see those women walking around with the dark faces and the visible make up line? Yeah...that was me...I'd be thrilled to try the fair to light, as I loved the way it made my skin feel.

You can find this great product at your local Walmart store ~ retailing for around $22.00.
Have you used a product like this in your get ready routine?

FUNdraising with Signazon

As a parent of elementary school kids, and as someone who sits on the board of our school's PTO, one of the most common things we find ourselves grappling with, is money. More specifically, the lack there of, for our schools.

::Insert fundraising here::

We try to make fundraising, FUNdraising, with various events taking place throughout the school year. Some are better than others, and we are always looking for exciting new (and improved!!) ways to do things.

When I was recently introduced to ~ I instantly knew they could help us draw attention to our FUNdraising efforts...

Whether it's at the admission table for the school dance, hanging outside the loop for our school walk-a-thon, or even hanging up in the restaurant on Culver's night while we sell our Spirit Wear bracelets...

A large vinyl banner from really does something for our FUNdraising ~

Wouldn't you agree?

Sure, the kids could sit at that table with their rubber bracelets and try to sell them. They can even move about the restaurant wearing them and peddling them.  But having a nice big sign hanging above our cause ~ that sure helps!

There are hundreds of banners to choose from, all designed up and ready to go. Simply plug in your information or how you want your sign to read, choose the size you'd like, and viola, within days, you will have a gorgeous new vinyl sign to raise awareness for your cause! You can also custom design your own signs if you have an idea of what you'd like - maybe a logo or a tagline that you like to use.

Whether we like it or not, fundraising is a necessary evil in most, if not all of today's schools and sports organizations. Investing in a banner from will help us to raise awareness to our causes for years to come.

Check them out for your cause/party/business today!

Happy Valentine's Day ~ Gift Giving with Eden Fantasys

We aren't huge on Valentine's Day around here ~ I never really have been...but add in the fact that we've been together for the last 13 Valentine's Days (YIKES!) and that my husband's birthday is just two days after Valentine's Day...and all of a sudden it's that much harder to ignore the special occasions that February brings.

It's not that I want to ignore them, I just feel like we shouldn't need the special day to say 'I Love You!' - and I hate how commercialized it is...

And as for the birthday...well, we always do our best to make birthdays a big deal around here...


What do you get for the guy who has everything, and wants nothing?

How many wallets, new sweaters or restaurant gift cards can a person get?

Thankfully, if I visit Eden Fantasys - there's still time to put together my very own special gift basket...

filled with.........


I'd never say!

If you need a gift for your special someone but aren't confident in picking out items to gift - why not use an Eden Fantasys gift card?

You can't go wrong with a gift card ~ (and isn't it nice to give one that isn't for the *usual* places?)


With something for everyone, from lotions and lubes to candles and clothes, there should be no shortage of things to explore!
