Peanutty Peanut Butter Squares

I tried these Peanutty Peanut Butter Squares one day when I craving something gooey and chocolatey. These hit a home run!  Even my husband liked them.  I added dark chocolate chips because I LOVE pb and chocolate together.  I took the left overs to work the next day and my coworkers gave them a big thumbs up!  Only a few ingredients and very easy to make.  After you make them, tag me on Facebook and let me know how they turned out.  Enjoy!

Why Aren’t More Women Lifting Weights?

There are various reasons women are wary of lifting weights.  The biggest fear and most prevalent myth is that weight lifting will make you bulky.  As you can see from my before and after pic, weight liftingthe opposite is true.  Women generally don’t have the hormonal makeup to “bulk up” like a man. Our bodies just aren’t built that way.

Makeup That Last ALL Day. I finally found it!

Tried it. Loved it!: Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup

Makeup.  There’s tons of it out there.  We ladies spend a fortune trying to figure out which Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeupproducts live up to the advertised claims. Don’t get me started on all the money I’ve spent trying to find a mascara that will truly give me mile long lashes.  Haven’t found one yet.  But, I digress. That’s another blog post.

Back to the subject at hand.  Makeup!  I searched high and low for makeup that would last all day.  Who has time to “touch up” in the middle of the day? Not me.  I have oily skin and would be horrified to look in the mirror and see an oil slick.  Yikes!  And I thought I was looking cute all this time. Not.

While doing make up trials for my wedding last year, my make up artist (hey Keisha!!) introduced me to Estee Lauder’s Double Wear makeup.  I’ve been using it ever since!  What I love about it?  It cost more than drug store brands, but it truly lasts ALL day.  No need for touch ups throughout the day and it doesn’t come off until I wash my face at night.  And since it’s a liquid that dries to a nice matte finish, it doesn’t transfer to my documents at work.  I’m a face toucher.  I know, I know germs, bacteria, yadda yadda.  I’ve tried to stop, but my hands have a mind of their own.  I’m all about living life “jiggle free” so, I had to find a product that fits my lifestyle not the other way around.

Anyway, I happily give this makeup 5 Stars for quality and living up to it’s claim “double wear stay-in-place makeup”.  I don’t get paid to review products (yet!).  So trust that this is my honest review of a product I’ve tried and love and thought you might too.  If you found a foundation you love, please comment below.  I’d love to hear what’s working for you too!   Love you, ladies! Smooches!
