Alluring Bath & Beauty

So I'm sure you remember hearing (technically reading) me mention my Sis-In-Law and her Beauty Blog...but I don't think I've ever actually gone into detail about the things she blogs about.  In my opinion her Blog goes beyond what most Beauty Blogs cover, because hers is filled with all sorts of fabulous hand made recipes.  So to give you guys a better idea what her and her blog are about I have done a small interview with her.....

-What made you decide to start blogging?..and why a "Beauty Blog"?

You were my inspiration to start blogging. I loved learning about you and I figured I should give it a try. I decided on a beauty blog because I love getting ready. I was stuck in a rut and figured that this was a good way to get out of it. I have to say, it has! I feel much more secure with myself, and for the first time in my life I believe I'm beautiful.

-Where do you get your beauty inspirations from?

I get inspiration from people I see on the street, the blogs I follow, and my beautiful friends. I also believe that outer beauty starts with inner beauty. Its the type of person you are that makes the rest of you. Looks are just looks. I think you need to have substance to take your beauty to the next level.

-What motivated you to start making your own body/face products?

I've always been interested in the hows and whys of things. Basically I just woke up one morning and decided this is what I want to do. I eventually plan on opening up my own spa that caters to the everyday person and uses homemade product. I think people are looking for an alternative from all of the chemically manufactured products.

-I've been wanting to try many of your recipes that you have tested on your blog, but I don't know where to get half of the ingredients...where do you get yours from?

I have been buying my supplies from, but I've also picked up odds and ends at the health food store and at different craft stores. Or you can check out my products on my Etsy shop. I'm also starting to do custom skin creams for people who are looking for the right product for their skin and haven't found it elsewhere.

-What are your beauty essentials?

I have to have Mascara!! I can't live without the stuff, and Burts Bees Cooling & Soothing lip balm.

-What tips/advise would you give to someone who doesn't have the slightest clue about doing their own make-up?

Practice! Sit in front of the mirror at night and try things out, look at magazines and try and re-create the look, or get a professional consultation from a makeup counter. But remember, just because the look works on someone else, doesn't mean its going to work on you.

-If you could give one celebrity a "beauty" make-over who would it be and why?

Perez Hilton... he is just WAY WAY too over the top!

So now I think it's time for you to go check out her Blog...and while you are there be sure to enter her super fun giveaway!!

Also while we are talking about her...she gave me a blog award today...once again it has nothiing to do with the fact that we're related...but strictly because I am that fabulous!!

So thank you Corrine...I'm sending you a hug in the should see the cloud in approximatly 6 hrs 27 mins (It looks like a 3 legged Turtle)

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person that gave this to you

2. Go on, give them a virtual hug

3. Copy the award and put it on your blog

4. List 3 things you love about yourself

5. Post a picture(s) that you love

6. Tag 5 people you wish to pass this award onto.

3 Things I love about myself:

1.  I love that I'm quite creative...I was never good at sports or anything like instead I spent my time making arts and crafts...when I was younger I wanted sooo badly to be good at sports...but now I'm thinking that my craftyness has come in handy alot more than an ability to play sports would.  (One example is I saved SOOOO much money on our Wedding by making my Dress, 3 Bridesmaids Dresses...4 mens ties...the center pieces...and the party favors...I will admit my Mom did help alot)

2.  I love that I did such a good job picking my man (well maybe he picked me....)

3.  I love that I'm not an up-tight freak out over everything kind of Mom....

So it said to post one picture that I love...instead I am posting 6 pictures I love...because I thought it was quite funny at the time...

Am I horrible for finding it humorus when my child is stuck in the bed rails?!?

Finally I'm passing this on to:
