Worked just a little bit on baby blocks since I was done with my book and still away from home.

I put up a new giveaway here on my blog.  Win 3 FREE 20 oz Minute Maid Coupons.  It ends
Tuesday evening.

I listed bookmarks,  little girls bracelets, and free 20 oz Minute Maid coupons on listia.

I know I did accomplish quite a bit this week just by looking at the list, but it sure seems every week I should have gotten more done.....or, well, that there was a lot more that I wanted to get done.

Until next week, have a great week!

Covergirl ShadowBlast and ShineBlast Review

My most recent bzz campaign with is Covergirl's Shadow Blast and Shine Blast products.  I love make up and I get excited when I get to try new things.

I received #820 Citrus Flair in the Shadow Blast.  I was taken aback with the green, but happy to report that it goes wonderfully with the brown and doesn't go on dark as I was afraid it might.
In the Shine Blast i got #825  Smolder.

I really like the eye shadow's that are not powder, so the Shadow Blast is perfect for me.  It's so easy to apply.  First you use side one and cover the whole lid, then you use side 2 in the crease and to line your lid.  I've not tried it lining under my eye yet, but will.

Shadow Blast has an average retail price of $7.99.  I've only looked for it one place so far, and that was Walgreen's where it sells for $8.49.  I fully intend to buy myself some more of the colors!

The downfall that I see after reading others comments, is that because it's not a powder, it does crease during the day.   I have this trouble even with powder eye shadows, but still prefer to use eye shadow like what is offered with the Shadow Blast.  Despite the creases, which I am used to, I still love this product!  I feel it's very innovative on Cover Girls part.

I also am enjoying the Shine Blast as well.  It goes on smoothly and really adds a shine to my lips that I like.  It has the ShineSculpt applicator that hugs your lips' contours.  Very easy to apply.
It doesn't leave a thick sticky feeling on your lips at all.  It has a nice fruity scent too.

Shine Blast has an average retail price of $7.49.  I would also like to have more of it as well.

I was sent 5--$2 coupons with my bzz campaign kit to use myself and hand out to others.

Below is a picture of my eyes after putting on the Shadow Blast and my lips with the Shine Blast on them.

My Frugal Week May 2-8

Just a few things this week, but every thing that you can do that will help to be frugal and save money helps.

I am still using the larger bags from the second hand store for trash bags.  Good thing I was well stocked up on them.  My money ran out before I got to the dollar store to buy trash bags.

I did my Walgreen's shopping --Walgreen's Shopping 5/3/10
I always enjoy my Walgreen's shopping, and you can see in the photo that I got quite a lot for my money.  I don't buy a lot of food items in my shopping there, but last week I did.

I froze left over supper foods again.  I've already warned the family that this might be the week we have a left over night for supper.  We will see.  We are finally getting low on meats after Steve paying WAY too much for meats from the guy who drives around in the freezer truck.

Here is a post I wrote on gather on re-using tv trays.  It has some good tips and uses, and those who commented came up with some more ways.  Re-Use Those TV Dinner Trays

We discussed some things last night.  He bought celery, forgetting that I had already bought some.  He agreed for me to cook up what he bought and freeze it for later stews, otherwise it will end up going to waste.  He over bought on hamburger and hot dog buns both for our Mother's Day bbq.  He agreed to let me put the 4 packages too many into the deep freeze so that they don't go to waste.  Maybe he is finally getting it.

I also did a couple of pretty good grocery shopping trips with coupons.  Those are posted here in my blog.

Until next week,

Happy Mother's Day!!

I'm pretty tired and the company hasn't even arrived.

I went to church, did my Walgreen's shopping, then home to clean, chop veggies etc.

Yep, I will be up late online tonight.

I'm sure I will have lots of family photos to share from the day once it's over.
