Covergirl’s LashBlast Fusion Review

I’ve been trying out Covergirl’s LashBlast Fusion in my latest bzzagent mission. I have long, fine lashes. Typically I purchase high end mascara a so I was excited to see how Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion would compare. Pros: It works well, adds length and volume and darkens your eyelashes. Cons: Get’s clumpy if you don’t wait for it to dry between coats, the wand gets a lot of product on the end, it’s hard to apply to lower lashed and there is some fallout by day’s end. 

Verdict: I’ll stick with my usual mascara

I came across this website and had to share! The styles are awesome and what a great cause! I plan on ordering a pair for a Christmas gift for myself from the cats and a pair for my sister-in-law. They are super cute PJs bought from an amazing organization!



The Story of International Princess ™ Project

In India, over 2 million women and children work as prostitutes (1).  Of the 200 girls and women who enter prostitution each day (3), 80% of them enter against their will and 35% are under the age of 18 (4). The women and children trapped in the sex trade are caught in a vicious cycle of poverty, illiteracy and disease that is seemingly inescapable.
In February of 2005, International Princess™ Project founder Shannon Keith went on a trip to India that opened her eyes to devastation of lives happening on the streets and in the brothels. After visiting a red-light district, she could not forget what she saw – young girls sold by their families, orphans picked up off the street by pimps, even young mothers just trying to feed their children. Many were held against their will. Others were trapped by economics. Those who escaped the brothels often returned just to survive.

Compelled by the magnitude of this reality, Shannon and her team of volunteers founded International Princess™ Project to advocate for these women, give them opportunities to restore their broken lives and empower them to live in freedom. The traditional Indian Sari, worn in even the darkest places in India, became the inspiration for International Princess™ Project. The sari’s bright color and beautiful design are fit for princesses.

Women who leave the brothels need occupational training and job opportunities to help them find dignity, self-worth and hope for a future outside of the red light districts. When women become a part of an International Princess Project sewing center, they take the first step toward supporting themselves in a dignified way.

PUNJAMMIES™, pajamas made from the beautiful Indian fabrics by women employed at sewing centers in India, are exported to the U.S and sold as a premium-brand of sleepwear. Proceeds from these sales go back to paying the ladies fair trade wages, money towards their living expenses, holistic support and restoration, funding towards their children’s schooling and operational support for the program.  International Princess™ Project is committed to creating self-sustaining enterprises in India that provide opportunities for women formally enslaved in prostitution a place to heal from the past and find hope for the future.

Purchase PUNJAMMIES™ and not only will you get some beautiful pajamas great for lounging or sleeping, you will empower women with dignity and hope.

THE BEAN LADIES made me a black bean lover!

I met “The Bean Ladies” (Julie and Jamie) at a craft show.

They urged me to try a black bean dip, I was sure I wouldn’t like it. I really don’t like beans, however with some coaxing I gave it a try and found out I love black beans!
They offer soups, chili, appetizers, side dishes,desserts and roasted soybean snacks.

My favourite products so far:
Que Pasa Black Bean Dip
Potluck Pasta Salad
Chai Latte Soybean Snacks
Toasted Sesame Soybean Snack

I want to try the Double Chocolate Bean Brownies (Gluten Free).

These products are sold at juried craft shows, fall fairs, specialty stores ,community events and online.
