Over the Hill!

My sister-in-law, Mandy, turned the BIG 3-0 this weekend. We had her b-day dinner @ one of our FAVORITE restaurants here in Knoxville, Lakeside Tavern. YUM!! We had such a wonderful time. Happy B-day Mandy...we love you so much! I'm the next one to turn 30 in the family and you better believe that Joshua keeps reminding me that I'm almost on the 12 month plan! Why, thank you for the reminder, honey. :) Here are some pics from our fun night!

Showered with Blessings!

For those of you who don't know, my sister-in-law, Mandy, is pregnant with a sweet baby girl (Mahala) & she will hopefully make her entrance into this world by May 19th. Since Phillip & Mandy have triplet boys and because they own absolutely nothing PINK, we were so excited to throw them a baby shower! Mandy's mom and I had the best time planning it and after all the wonderful things she got, I have no doubt that little Mahala will be one stylin little girl! :)

The ADORABLE diaper tree she got!

New Mary Kay Products!

I was encouraged by my friend Hannah, to blog about some of the new Mary Kay products that have recently come out. So...here we go!

Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation and Brush Kit
Price $28.00

It’s beauty made simple. A foundation that goes on with the sweep of a brush. A weightless powder that blends effortlessly for a flawless look. A skin perfecter that makes lines, wrinkles and other imperfections seem to disappear. And it’s transfer-resistant, so it won’t fade away midday. The secret to a perfect application is having the perfect brush, and that’s why we created one. The Mineral Foundation Brush is custom-designed to work with the foundation. They’re made for each other to deliver results like you’ve never seen or felt before. No other brush you own will even come close to the Mineral Foundation Brush. The bristles are soft, natural hair that is short and flat across the top, so you get the right amount of foundation and right level of buildable coverage.

WHAT’S THE BUZZ IN THE MARKETPLACE? Mineral-based products are the hot trend in cosmetics. Growing numbers of specialty brands as well as mass retail brands offer mineral makeup options to meet the ever-increasing demand by women worldwide. As more consumers strive to lead healthier lifestyles, being “natural” and using more botanicals or mineral-sourced ingredients in food and personal care products continue to gain huge popularity. Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation provides an additional foundation option to the current Mary Kay foundation line. This product can be used by women of all ages and all skin types. And it’s suitable for sensitive skin.

WHAT MAKES MINERAL POWDER FOUNDATION DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FACIAL POWDERS? Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation is a foundation in powder form. This weightless formula blends for a flawless look and evens out skin tone while providing buildable coverage with the comfort of a silky powder. It’s transfer-resistant and won’t fade away midday. Other regular facial pressed or loose powders generally have sheer/luminous coverage or shine-control properties. These powders provide neither the coverage nor the benefits of a foundation.

HOW DOES MARY KAY MINERAL POWDER FOUNDATION SPECIFICALLY DIFFER FROM MK SIGNATURE LOOSE POWDER? In addition to the general differences mentioned above, Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation contains a higher percentage of minerals than our loose powder. Also, the key function of our loose powder is to help control excess oil while setting makeup for a flawless look. It’s easy to see why minerals are a girl’s best friend.

WHY DO MY CUSTOMERS HAVE TO USE A SPECIAL BRUSH? The Mineral Foundation Brush is custom-designed to work with the foundation and provide the flawless results your customers expect. The bristles are soft, natural hair that pick up a precise amount of powder, releasing it evenly as your customers sweep. The bristles are also shorter and flat across the top, so your customers can easily customize the level of coverage. Plus, the handle is the perfect size for maximum control.


Also, check out our new lipstick shades!!!

Mary Kay Creme Lipstick
Price $13.00

Now in 32 of today’s hottest shades, featuring 10 new fresh-from-the runway shades. Each in a sleek new black case. The long-wearing, stay-true color glides on with a lightweight, creamy formula that doesn’t feather or bleed. It’s even enhanced with two vitamin derivatives to help protect from wrinkle-causing free radicals. Perfect! Check out my website @ www.marykay.com/christybmartin to see all the new colors!!

It's Been Way Too Long!

I know, I know....I've been TERRIBLE about keeping up with my blog lately. Sorry everyone!! February was one of those months where so much happened that it was hard to keep it all straight...much less, try to blog about it. :) But things are starting to slow down a bit and life is somewhat back to normal....thank you Lord!

My February started out with us moving to a temporary office here @ work. This may sound like it's not that big of a deal...but when your boss has been in the same office for over 18 years and is packing things up to move to a "temporary" place, its a HUGE deal. We've been somewhat settled now for a couple of weeks and then we'll pick up and move AGAIN to our brand new office hopefully by April. We are so excited...it's going to be beautiful!! All of this has just made for a busy month here @ work. Good thing I love my job!! :)

The highlight of our month was having my brother, Bradley, and one of my greatest friends, Lyndsey here to visit with us for the weekend! We had the best time...ate way too much, laughed a lot, and did some things that we haven't done in awhile, like go see a late night movie (I sound like an old woman huh????? haha). Joshua & I took them around Knoxville and we enjoyed their company so much. Here are a couple of pics from our weekend!! Love you all.

Me & my sweet Lyndsey girl!

As always, Jasmine was a HIT!
