What are you up to?

Hi everyone. I know I haven't posted much on this blog. I was hoping to have guest contributors to blog with me! So far, nobody is interested! I am looking for fellow moms, women, and pen pallers, who love to blog! You would be welcome to blog about anything, not just pen palling.

In the meantime, I have been busy with another blog I just started. Since both my husband and I are not working, I am finding additional ways for us to save money. I have been looking for homemade recipes for beauty and other things, rather than buying expensive remedies at the store. You are welcome to visit my beauty blog! I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Everything else is going okay with us. My son just started speech therapy! I am excited and hope it leads to more for him.

So, what have you been up to? See you in the comments!

Mineral Makeup Doesn’t Have to Cost a Fortune

We have all seen the commercials for mineral makeup, been tempted to order the product. But did you know, those companies require a club membership to receive their products. Not only that, the products are pricey, at least for my budget! In these hard times, people are cutting back everywhere they can. You don’t have to cut back just to look great!

Attention Ladies: You do not have to break the bank just to look fabulous with mineral makeup!

Did you know mineral makeup is affordable, 100% natural, and good for your skin? Have you heard of Monet Minerals? Monet Minerals is mom owned and has been around since August 2007. Monet Minerals offers monthly sales and specials to help clients save money. Every order includes free samples. This gives you a chance to try new colors and products.

Are you aware of some of the benefits to using mineral makeup? Mineral Makeup does not clog pores or irritate the skin, which makes is essential for sensitive skin. A little product goes a long way, so you won’t end up spending so much in the long run. Mineral Makeup is water resistant, perfect for those who live in humid climates or for those who want to wear makeup while they are working out.

Monet Minerals have 5 or less ingredients in their products. Can you say that about your current makeup? Mineral Makeup does not expire, how great is that?

Houseplant Care Tips

Do you have a brown thumb when it comes to houseplants? As a houseplant addict, I have several tips I have learned throughout the years to help others successfully keep your houseplants growing and thriving. Did you know houseplants naturally clean and filter your indoor air? Houseplants bring many benefits including calmness, productivity, and cheer to any room or office they are in. Plants can also help keep you healthy and reduce sick days!

The easiest way to kill a houseplant is over watering. Over watering refers to watering your plants more than the plant needs. With my plants, I try to water once a week or when the soil is dry to the touch. There is no need to water a plant everyday. When you do water your plants, make sure to drain the water from the plant dish, do not let your plants sit in water! Plants do not like having wet feet.

Assess the light your plants are receiving during the day. Are they receiving enough light? If you are unsure, check the tag that your plant came with, it lists what type of light your plant needs and watering instructions. If there is no tag, check online, there are many helpful websites, forums, and resources. Houseplants don’t like direct sunlight. In addiction, be sure to rotate your plants every few days, so they will grow evenly and each side receives sunlight.

Clean your plants. Take a soft cloth or damp paper towel and wipe the leaves of your plants. If you prefer, bathe your plants. Put them in the bathtub and light spray them with water.

I have learned that fertilizer is not required with houseplants. If your plants are receiving plenty of water and sunlight, they should thrive without fertilizer.

I hope my simple tips have helped you with the basics. I truly hope my tips have helped some. I love houseplants and adding new plants to my collection. Good luck to you!
