Handmade from Natural and Synthetic Hair for a Precise and Soft Application

Our brushes are made with a combination of high quality pony hair, goat hair, and synthetic hair. Synthetic brushes are great for liquid-based makeup, while natural hair brushes pick up and distribute powder makeup evenly and smoothly. They are super soft and silky on top, yet durable and long lasting at the bottom, and with continuous use these brushes get even softer. Allows you to apply colors smoothly and pigment does not cling to hairs after application, enabling you to blend and reuse colors without cleaning after each use.
Easy to Clean and Dry
These brushes do not need to be cleaned frequently, but when needed, run them through warm water, then clean with a gentle shampoo, and rinse thoroughly. Place brushes on a clean surface to air dry or blow dry.
Sleek Fold-up Pouch for Organization and Travel
Kept in a sleek folding pouch that is convenient to bring around and protects the brushes from dust and dirt.
Petunia Skincare is a proud member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and does not test any products on animals. No animals are harmed to create these natural brushes.''

OK I have to admit I was excited to review these brushes!
Do I dare show you what I've been using?
How old is it? I'm not going there ;)
These are professional brushes that apply your make up beautifully and seamlessly.  Another admission....who knew there were so many types of make up brushes?!
Thank goodness the people at Petunia include a booklet describing what each is for or I would have been totally lost.
I love the brush guards (they will prevent my old brushes mangled look), such an easy way to keep their desired shape after washing.

 These quality brushes are sturdy and don't shed, a big plus in my book. No one wants stray hairs left behind. I think my favorite is the Spoolie brush, it is awesome for use in separating your lashes so they look their best. 
I had my make-up professionally done for my son's wedding, now if I could only remember how and what she did!    
With these brushes I'm going to be looking like this everyday!
Off to play!

Thoughts for the day

1. I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying
let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People move out of the way much faster now.
3. You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry.

 4. Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers. Now they drink like their fathers.
5. You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like
someone?  That's common sense leaving your body.

6. I don't like making plans for the day because then the word
"premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

7. I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes five years in a row.

8. I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim".  I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.
9. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers. If you find one, what's your plan?
10. Everyone has a right to be stupid. Some just abuse the privilege.

#Tenantify Review

Tenantify is a FREE and very useful service for the landlord.
How do you know the people or person you are
about to rent to are legitimate?
Sure you can call their references
(who just may be family or friends)
run their credit report and jump through a few other hoops to try to be sure they are reliable and have the funds to pay their rent,
but in this day and age with all the fraud out there,
it would be nice to have just a little more reassurance.
We lucked out when we rented my parents place.
 There were slim pickens, with only one person interested in it
and we really needed to get it rented.
Sure I fumbled through the internet trying to verify his information, but was I doing all I could? I had pretty limited access to what actual information I could get.
Tenantify has the resources to access vital information for the landlord regarding the applying tenant.
Tenantify provides the landlord with credit reports from all 3 major credit bureaus (TransUnion, Experian and Equifax), which in actuality shows the just the last 7 years of  their creditworthiness and not what they are currently up to. So Tenantify digs deeper to provide the landlord with an authenticated bank statement which verifies their income and also verifies employment through their employer.  

'The empowered landlord can then make informed decisions'
So should you ever have the need,
Tenantify is there for you.
We could have really used this service and
would have had a better peace of mind.

To find out more about Tenantify check out their Website .
You can also find them on Facebook, LinkedIn,
Twitter, and Google+.

IGotTech #Texting #Gloves for Smartphone & Touchscreen Review

Product Description from IGotTech

Color: Black With Gray Tips

But Baby, it's Cold Outside...
Don't let the cold cramp your style! These premium Smart Gloves utilize our most recent "Touch-nology" to keep your fingers cozy, comfortable, and doing all the things warm fingers do best, like:
*texting in the nippy air on your Smartphone
*using a find-my-car app in a freezing parking lot
*placing phone calls during snowball fights with no interruption
*snapping that perfect wintry shot on your iPhone
You'll LOVE how they FEEL... iGotTech's #1 Best Gloves are made with attention to detail of premium materials for comfort & durability. Enjoy a full Season or more of warm-fingered texting bliss with every pair.
Our Famous 100% Winter-Smart "Wear-antee". If our #1 Best Gloves construction quality, or anything about our product is not up to par: WE WANT TO KNOW. Our Top Priority is your satisfaction, and stand behind our premium products. If you're not satisfied for any reason, return your purchase for a 100% refund, no questions asked. You literally RISK NOTHING trying this Premium Product Today.
First let me tell you how amazed I was with the thickness of these gloves! We've tried other brands in the past and they, well, were pretty thin. Warmth was not one of their strong points. BUT IGotTech has gotten it right! These are so thick you wonder if they will actually work. Upon putting them on I felt this luxurious softness and such warmth. I have small hands and were so surprised that they actually fit the length of my fingers!
I love the snug cuff too.
I'm not up north with snow anymore, but we get some pretty nippy frozen mornings and there's nothing like trying to answer or text after having to remove your regular gloves, which only make your hands/fingers feel even more chilly, then trying to make them text or fumble trying to answer your phone! Well, NO MORE!
These gloves work like a dream!
I was really amazed at how well I could actually hit the correct space, not clumsy at all.
Everyone in the house tried them and they fit us all ~ now that's quite a wide variety of sizes of hands to fit.
I see a fight coming!
Need to buy a few pairs more to satisfy everyone :)
Like IGotTech says:
"Get 1 Pair for your chilly hands & Extras for your phone-loving family members!"

And with their:
''100% Winter-Smart "Wear-antee"! Don't LOVE our iPhone Gloves for any reason at all? Just let us know for a FULL Refund. Your Satisfaction is our #1 Priority!''
You just can't lose!
