Not By The Hair Of My Chinny-Chin-Chin Printable and Gift Idea

October 23, 2017

Women of any age suffer from the dreaded whiskers. Grab her some electronic tweezers and this fun facial hair printable and gift her something useful.Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin. Grab this free witch printable for the hairy person in your life.

This post contains affiliate links. Just like any printable I offer on my site, this is for personal use only.

I don’t know any woman who doesn’t deal with whiskers or full-blown chin hair. If you don’t, then I don’t know what kind of witch-craft you’re doing but teach me your ways! It’s always a fun joke in our family and so one day at Ulta, I found this electronic tweezers that has six that spin around and grab them. It works awesome so I had to get my mom and sister-in-law one ASAP.I couldn’t just hand it over. That’s not my style. I had to make a cute little print to go with it. One of the witches faces even have two little whiskers on it. It’s only on one of the witches faces by mistake but it’s actually pretty cute so I’ll leave it to you to decide which one you want.

Supplies

Easy enough, just print off the printable and cut it into the 4.25×5.5″ rectangle. Punch a hole in the corner and attach it to the box with some twine. I looped my twine a lot of times and so it looks like hair. Just a play on words. Give it to the hairy women in your life and laugh about it. There is always wax and someone is always coming up with great inventions like this to help women like us.

I love the thought of giving something like this for Halloween. Who knows, I may make one for men one of these days but I know hairy chins don’t bother them as much.

July 12, 2016

All opinions are mine alone. #OREOTHINSideStory #CollectiveBiasMaking time for mom and summer nail polish trendsBless my kids – they try so hard, I try so hard and never live up to any of my expectations and I feel like I never live up to theirs. They’ve endured a lot these last 12 months from a pregnant mom and a sick baby brother, they deserve to have some fun time with me but it’s really just a ploy to get them to help me out. Making time for mom and summer nail polish trendsI’ve compiled some summer trends in nail polish because we need to look good when we don’t feel good. I ‘suckered’ Siaki and Leila into polishing my nails while I just sat by and ate OREO Thins and life was good for ten-minutes again.img_1099We headed over to our Kroger banner store, Smith’s and grabbed the polish and OREO’s in one visit, that’s why I love shopping at Smith’s. Malakai was in his saucer toy – being content – and although it was just a moment, it was a good moment and I’ll cherish that I got to spend it with my three youngest children.Making time for mom and summer nail polish trendsNow on to color trends…pastel everything is in. I love the mix of the muted pinks and purples but my favorite is the mint color of nail polish that’s been popping up everywhere. You also can’t go wrong with metallic but copper and rose gold are the new black and gold. Go out of your comfort zone, get ones that you normally wouldn’t try and give yourself an update. You never know which one of the new ones you’ll love. Making time for mom and summer nail polish trendsAdd some glitter to your routine and make the sheen different. My favorite combo is matte and the muted lavender color. OREO Thins are available in more flavors than ever so check them out at www.oreo.com/thins and tell me which one is your favorite, I love mint.

Victoria Jackson Makeup Review and 25% off!

March 16, 2015

I participated in this sponsored campaign on behalf of Victoria Jackson and One2One Network. All opinions are 100% my own.Read this honest review about Victoria Jackson Makeup, only on frenchiewraps.comSo I was given the opportunity to review Victoria Jackson makeup and I love me some makeup. I honestly had never heard of it, on,y through some other bloggers so I really had wanted to see what ins of quality of makeup it is. I received some of their Foundation Duo in Light (obviously), some of their Here Comes the Sun bronzing powder, their Perfect Everyday blush in Garden, and some of their Lush Mascara.You know that from now until April 4th you can save 25% off all Victoria Jackson makeup, so head to their site and grab some now using the code LOVEVJC. But first, check out what I think you should get for yourself!Read this honest review about Victoria Jackson Makeup, only on frenchiewraps.comI decided that I’d wear it to church and I was really pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. I’m not someone who buys expensive makeup because of the money and the name. I buy makeup because I like it. I can buy $5 lipstick and pair it with a $20 foundation, if I like it, I will use it almost forever or until I find a superior replacement. 

Now, for the foundation, I’m not a foundation person. I normally wear a CC cream but for when I wear a foundation, this is what I’ll now choose. This feels light and smooth, it’s not over bearing or the wrong color. It blends well and I like the tone it gave my skin. For the bronzer, I ended up using it like a contour powder. My skin is too fair for an all over bronzer but it does look darker in the pressed powder than what it does going on. For the blush, the Garden color was a it bright for my tone. I did end up rubbing some off even after I had patted some off my brush. The mascara! The mascara was and is my favorite. I have a really hard time with finding good mascara that doesn’t flake or leave dark circles around my eyes. I really loved this stuff. Read this honest review about Victoria Jackson Makeup, only on frenchiewraps.comMake sure you follow Victoria Jackson on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for other ongoing promotions.
