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.

Duh, Pinning!

I am, like most people are obsessed with Pinterest.

I was pinning one day and I thought to myself how maybe I should actually try some of these pins. I am going to rate the pins WINNING for the ones you should try and LOOOOSER for the ones that you should pass on. Are you ready?


I am going to make it a blog series and try one Pinterest pin a week. This week was DIY pore strips:

This pin came from the blog Petit Elefant, this honestly is the one of the easiest DIY home beauty tip ever. I had heard some complaints that mask hurt when you were trying to take it off and I STILL wanted to try it for my self.

If you read the instructions the Petit Elefant, it is easy enough to put on . It kinda smells like grossness but that aside I soldiered on and applied the mas in a timely fashion  because it is no lie that this stuff hardens really fast.

Here are some glamor shots of me with the mask on:

This is after 20 minutes of having the mask on.

Showing how tight the mask makes your face.      

 I found that on the areas that had a thin application hurt like a mother to take off, but if it was on thick enough it didn't make me want to cry when I took it off.  On my T zone it worked wonders, I was sitting on the couch when I started pulling the strips off and I was ( and so was Husband) mesmerized buy the amount of crud coming out of my pores. I have huge pores to begin with and it pulled everything out of them.

Because I put some on that was really thin I had to take a shower to get it off.
After the shower.
See how shiny my skin is! My verdict on the DIY pore strip is that it works, but if you don't get it thick enough it will hurt getting it off, so I say use it for it is a pore strip and I think you will be just as happy with it.



  1. Wow, you can see the shine...get it girl :)
