Contests · My Thoughts

Review and GIVEAWAY!!!!

I was soooo lucky to have been contacted by Jessica, a Pink Papaya consultant, about trying out a few of their products a couple of weeks ago…and all us girls understand the fabulousness of new products!!


She sent me a goodie package filled with a travel set facial cleanser, body lotion and lipstick.   My little girl was almost as excited as I was to open the package, AND I have had to fight her for the lotion ever since…it works sooo great on our poor, beatup Alberta skin and smells like a dream! I love anything citrus and this is perfect…the scent actually lasts all day and is soooo mosturizing…love!

The Facetini Travel Set is also working wonders on my poor pregnant and winter weathered skin. I adore the facial brush for the cleanser and have never had to double apply the face lotion, once is great and battles the dry winds we have around here! I couldn’t ask for more and the travel kit made the cut into the bag I have packed and ready to go when this baby comes. It is so portable and handy!!!

And the lipstick…

All I have to say is that, at 9 months pregnant, I actually got down and crawled under a parked car to get it after it fell out of my purse. Not a pretty picture…but obviously I love it. Jessica sent me “Tease”, such a fabulous color…not too out there and more than gloss…perfect!

AND NOW for my favorite part!!!!!

Darling Jessica has offered up FOUR Holiday Hand Sets to you lucky ducks!!!

Good luck and thanks again to Jessica for this fabulous opportunity and GIVEAWAY!!!

Fashion & Beauty


I just heard about this company yesterday and am SO SAD because they don’t currently ship to Canada.


For all you USA girlies!!


The concept of this company is fabulous!

For a $10 monthly fee, you get a gorgeously packaged box of beauty samples. All the samples are of generous portions and it gives you a chance to discover new and different products.

I am a sucker for new stuff and LOVE trying them out. But some things work and some don’t. So sample sizes would be fabulous…and try it and buy it if you love!!!

And if you do sign up…let me know what you think!!!



p.s. Birchbox has no idea who I am or what I do….I just like the idea and wanted to share!

Filthy Farmgirl Soap

Isn’t that the best name ever?!?!!?

I found this fantastic company back in my Mink & Manure days and have loved them ever since. The soaps are great…so great in fact that our hired hand commented on them. Trust me, this is a major deal…he’s 16 and a boy…can’t get a tougher crowd than that!

The “Live Nakedly” concept has to do with their pledge to be natural and eco-friendly. Their labels are on 100% recycled paper, they use no detergents, surfactants, sulfates, artificial scents, colorizers, or petroleum products of any kind, and their recipes are 100% natural…the ingredients are either grown by them or bought locally.

My favorite is Loopy Lavender and I’m planning on getting Lucky Ducky Lemon Drop next…they will also send out free samples for you to smell and try out.You can get the soaps from the website Filthy FarmgirlOR through my girl Jenn’s company Mink & Manure…check out her site and either give her a call or email her!

So lather up all you filthy farmgirls and enjoy!!
