Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Sign me up!

After much consideration, this weekend I will join the the glamours ladies of Mary Kay!

That's right! I am going to become an independent beauty consultant and I couldn't be more thrilled with my decision. I needed a part time job anyway so why not trying something new, with a product I love, on my own time and on my own terms.

After trying Mary Kay I haven't looked back. I am not going to lie, I was a little skeptical at first because when someone said Mark Kay I thought of older women, pink Cadillacs and the mom from Edward Scissor hands (I know she was Avon but I thought of her none the less). But I was totally blown away by there products. At that point I had what I like to call a make up counter (or makeup jail as I heard it put on Saturday) in my very on bathroom.

I am a product junkie, weather it be make up,shampoo or some other bottle of elixir, when a new product hit the shelves you can bet within a week it would be in my cart in the checkout line. I think it was the excitement, the possibilities that come when you get a new product. Being that I am said junkie there were times of let down, when the shampoo made my hair lifeless and flat, the new beauty mask made my skin break out but more often than not make up let me down the most. I would battle through a bad shampoo, find a friend that wanted the beauty mask but with the make up you knew after one use if you liked it or not and that stuff is harder to find takers on because it is YOUR skin tone or YOUR color choices. After the initial grieving process the unwanted purchase always went to the plastic Rubbermaid container under my sink aka the makeup counter. I am not sure why I kept it, I guess I thought after awhile it would change or I would change... kind of sounds like a bad relationship...

The straw the broke the camels back was the Lash Blast mascara from Cover Girl. I loved the commercial, with spunky Drew Barrymore looking cute in a white suit, promising me big, bold look at me lashes I was hooked. I wanted it and when I walked down the florescent lit aisle I found the magic tube of mascara in WATERPROOF!!!!!!!! I didn't think this day could get any better, I went to check out and I handed the cashier a $20 because this tube of goodness cost about $10. I thought "I can't put a price on big, bold look at me lashes." So I grabbed my change and went home and did my usual ritual of using my new product as soon as humanly possible. I put on some music, and started my beauty regime on my fresh face. It could hardly stand waiting for the mascara step because I never break out of my make up routine, for anything and the mascara was always the last thing I put on. When it was time I opened the package and looked at the brush, it was one of those rubber grabby ones (that look like a french tickler) and I was little disappointed. The brush itself was huge but the last 1/4 inch was nothing but these little nubbin things, no bristles, I brushed it off and I slide the applicator in the tube and swirled it around. I pulled it out and started applying it, I noticed how clumpy it was, the formula was so thick that it just globbed on my eyelashes and made them stick together I looked like Tammy Fae Baker, my she rest in peace.

Doubting my mascara application skills, I wiped eye lashes off and then the brush and decided to try again, same thing. At this point I knew that this product was a bust, I already had one eye done and I figured I could use my eye lash brush to fix eye number one so I finished. And remember what I said about the piece of the brush that only had little nubbins well when I went to finish eye number 2 and I was brushing my inner lashes I had to hold the brush so close to my nose so my inner lashes could get some some love that I glooped black mascara all over my self....

To the plastic bin the tube went. I was mad, mad that it was such a bad product, mad that I was out $10 and mad that I had Black waterproof Mascara all over my face.

At this point I was late for my very first Mary Kay Party. So I got the black smudge off of my face and walked to my bestest house and fell in love.

Needless to say I walked away with face wash, the micro derm kit, some eye make up and remover and have been buying the product ever since. I know I can sell this product because I think every woman out there has had a story like mine and then they are stuck. Either they can't return the product because it is open or they won't because they don't want more crappy product. Not to mention I can sell this product because it is A.MAZ.ING!!!

Wish me luck on my new venture!
