Announcement

So, after an approximate 3 year hiatus, I am excited to announce that I am re-joining Beauticontrol as a Consultant. Previously I represented this company for nearly 7 yearsΒ  and upon our transition to New England I switched gears into focusing solely on Health Products. I offer Young Living Essential Oils and Nature’s Sunshine Health Products. I will CONTINUE to offer these wonderful products and am simply re-implementing Beauticontrol Spa Products to my regime.

For those that do not know, my umbrella business name for this endeavor is Starstuck Spa – focusing on Health and featuring products from all 3 outstanding companies; Beauticontrol, Young Living, AND Nature’s Sunshine.

My return to Beauticontrol did not come as a surprise for me really.Β  As my inventory dwindled over the past 3 years, I was forced to look at alternatives to the level of quality I was used to with Beauticontrol products. For the price, I could not find anything to rival. The final straw for me was going to Walmart to purchase some foundation. I had finally come to my last bottle of my favorite Beauticontrol foundation and I went to Walmart to pick up an “old” favorite, a Lorea’l product. The entire incident was a fiasco, from going into the aisle to make my selection on a heavily monitored aisle of the store, not only by the blaring and literally strobe lighted, blinking -to let the shopper beware that they are being watched, there was also a Walmart employee at the end of the aisle that would have made a knock-off spy movie proud with her obviousness.Β  She was peaking at us from one end of the aisle and when we walked to the end where she was standing she scampered off. I realized I forgot something and went back into the aisle, she returned and continued to spy. I only became aware of her return when we turned to leave and she scampered off a second time. I was NOT happy about this treatment. I understand it is necessary due to them obviously having a theft problem, but really Walmart? Back at home I used this product and upon application it immediately BURNED my skin, just the sensation, it did not leave my skin red or give a rash thankfully. The foundation was very watery, not what I had been accustomed to with my Beauticontrol products. The next day, my skin was PEELING! I was shocked. I had to do a skin scrub and moisturize my skin to get things back to normal. Lorea’l did refund my money for the purchase of the product as I did call their company and report it. So back to square one, I realized that I was just going to keep spinning my wheels OR I could return to the trusted, and loved company that I enjoyed so much. So there you have it!

I rejoined the company under my former Director, Paulette Moose. She is amazing!! Her story of how she came to Beauticontrol is inspiring and she is quite the business woman. She is a great example of how to run your Business to a well-oiled success.

If you are interested in hearing more about this, send me a private message and I’ll be happy to help. I will be adding tabs to my Home page here on my blog that will have some basic info on the products. I look forward to hearing from you!

Don’t be a Fickle Friend

unfriend

Why is it that Social Media seems to make us, that is …people that participate on the Internet Survivor as another FB’er recently coined, to make us all become so fickle!! :/

Think about it, we are all just one click away. Ugg, and then you may run into these people in “real life.” Then what? Choose to be real, fight being fickle!

How many times have you been voted off of someone’s Internet Social Media Survivor? I have lost count!

Have I participated, sadly I have to say yes. I don’t anymore though. I refuse to reduce myself to that level.

Worcester County 4-H Fair 2016

clover

We just got back from the Worcester County 4-H Fair in Spencer, MA at Camp Marshall. It was a fun time, but we are glad to be home… it is a brief interlude until our next show which starts this Friday and lasts through until Monday.Β  You’ll have to wait until my next post to find out where πŸ™‚ .

I’m not certain that I posted on Bolton Fair, here’s a recap in case I did. We did fairly well there, but we actually showed up at the fair a week early! A little mishap on our calendar where we got some dates a little mixed up. Ha well, it happens to the best of us. We took a critical look at our calendar and are all sorted now. So here is a little photo gallery of that fair, see captions for a quick run through on the events….

So with that aside, let us now turn our attention on this weekend’s show, the Worcester County 4-H Fair in Spencer, MA at Camp Marshall.

It was a fun, but long weekend. Not as long as a couple of upcoming shows will be, but it was the longest for us since the Big East we attended in May 2016. Here is a link to a post covering both The Big East and Hampden County Fair.

The point about the length is that we got to sleep in our horse trailer!! πŸ˜€ We converted the tack room into a sort of cabin, well it fits a nice set of twin/full bunk beds, and this was the first time since The Big East that we got to sleep in here WITH BUNK BEDS. Last time we slept on a raised air mattress. That was interesting and decent, but the bunk beds… well… they were real nice! ❀ The only hang up is that we had no electricity and while our tack room is well equipped with an A/C we were unable to run it because of the lack of electricity. We had to tough the 1st hour at bedtime, but after a little while things cooled down to the point where we appreciated the extra blankets we had brought along.

Bunk Beds

Here is a short slide-show about this weekends fair. πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

New “Pet” #TBT

The year and month is circa October 2010:
So here’s the story… I was at my friend’s house today in San Marcos. We were making some tea in the kitchen when over her shoulder and through her kitchen window I spy this “thing” on the wall. I’m like… odd, it isn’t Halloween and my friend does not even celebrate Halloween (good thing) but this strange thing I spy looks like a giant “splat” or a giant “spider.” Note I am analyzing this creature/object from about 100+ feet away!

So I ask my friend, “Hey (friend’s name), what is that thing across the way there on the wall underneath the brown lamp?”

Torantula

So matter-of-fact she says, “Oh it’s a tarantula.”

haha!! I was like “WHOA! Are you serious??”

So I ran out and snapped some photos. Then I caught it and I planned to bring it home and put it in an aquarium for “further observation.” When Jason found we had yet another furry pet (LOL) he guessed what it was right away when I said it is furry and loves to eat crickets and bugs. He was like “NO WAY!”

So I guess attempting to throw the spider on us and make us scream, well, like girls!! haha!! He made us decide we did not need to take the little fella home after all. So we released him…or her, not sure which they seem to be sexually dimorphic.

Torantula2

Until next time, Yah bless …

Massachussets!! I love these two, plus the kitty, too! Never a dull moment with these guys about! ❀

Spouse Day

My advice for a good marriage – I’m running out of advice, just kidding! I know you’ve heard this a thousand and one times, but I’ll say it again… “never let the sun go down on your anger.” Forgive! No one is perfect and arguing is unfortunately something that sometimes goes hand in hand when people are together a lot. Show some grace and when necessary be the FIRST to forgive! πŸ™‚ You’re own heart ❀ will thank you, bitterness is a slippery road. Don’t let bitterness take a hold of you!! Forgive, lest you be forgiven.

Until tomorrow, Yah bless …

My advice for a good marriage – NO marriage is perfect all the time! What we have learned over time is a that “a couple that prays together, stays together.”

Until tomorrow, Yah bless …
