I haven't done one of these in a really long time. It's seems like life and business have definitely been keeping me busy and I have forgotten all about these. Since Monday has come and gone - I'm gonna just do this today - on a Thursday ;)
#1 - I took the photo above (on the left) in April or May I believe. I weighed about 268 lbs. It is now November 29th and I am now 248 lbs. I have lost 20 lbs to date. I'm super duper proud of myself and excited. You can seriously see it in my cheeks in comparison to the photo I took a week ago (on the right). The photos above have not been edited besides lighting correction.
#2 - I have been working on some awesome things lately. I can't share anything right now - because I'm still working on the details... but I'm super excited. I can say that this change is not only a positive one for me... but surely one that is exciting.
#3 - I switched up my YouTube layout (above) along with the site layout, in celebration of Christmas and New Years. I took several different photos and layered them to create a sweet background effect. I really love how it came out.

#4 - Even if it is a week after Thanksgiving - I can still smell my turkey in my nose. lol I swear this year's turkey was awesome and so moist and juicy. I can't wait to make it again. ;)
#5 - While my hubby and I were outside playing with the boys today, the twins both got on their own swings and swung themselves without help. They took turns pushing each other too. They did it all on their own without any help. *BIG SMILE* It had always been a little difficult for them... but today they laughed and giggled and enjoyed their new "BIG BOY STATUS". *proud mommy & daddy*
#6 - I am super duper stoked about Christmas and the New Year. This is my favorite time of the year and I am loving sharing it with my family. The boys are enjoying all the decorations every where we go and they are loving the Christmas Trees too. At the age of 3 - this is the year where most children truly understand who Santa Claus is. The boys know he is coming soon. ;) I love it - such a happy time. <3
This week has been beyond crazy. It is late and I am attempting to finish this blog post in 3 minutes... I hope I can complete this task. I love that I-Candy Couture has been so busy... it is awesome and we (I-Candy Couture) has come so far. So - here are 6 Randoms...
#1 - Can you say Breathe? Well, I hope so - because I haven't been able to say it or literally do it. Reviews for companies (I'm not complaining - I'm so very thankful ;D) have been pouring in... I promise you all - I will get to them :)
#2 - I rolled out lipsticks for I-Candy Couture this past week. They are gorgeous and in bullets which make them much more convenient and of course a little easier to apply to the lips when not in a pot. I am so happy with the color choices. ICC Likers on our Facebook Page helped to choose the colors.
#3 - I'm pretty proud of myself. I'm slowly getting back into the routine of bloggin at least 3 times a week. Okay - wait, I lied... maybe not quite yet - but I did write several posts this week... so I can at least pat my self on the back for those... right? lol
#4 - I did my video... "My Secrets". It was actually requested several times over the last year for me to do it... but I never really had the courage to do so - but after one of my subscribers and a great customer of ICC suggested it again (MScreamFilms) I decided to go ahead and just make one. The responses I received were so sweet and so heartfelt. I truly appreciate it and am so lucky to have such awesome subscribers and supporters.... <3 you guys ROCK! <3
#5 - Considering my love for Pepsi and even if it helps calm me down - I have been doing good again. Only taking a sip here and there... woohoo! It's probably my only addiction, besides my husband and my children... of course. lol But as much as I love water and it is the only thing that quenches my thirst... Pepsi is my drug sometimes. lol
#6 - Time for a new week. Monday (today) has been very very busy so far so I can only imagine that it is an insight to what the rest of the week will hold. It's Spring Break for my eldest... but he even chose to go to school for his Friendship Program - where he spends time with children with special needs. His best buddy is Autistic - so he goes and hangs out with him for a few hours a day during his breaks. Hopefully it will be a week where I accomplish many many things. :D
Wishing you all an awesome day and a very awesome week. Chit chat with you in a day or so!
This past week was quite interesting... lots of stuff going on and a lot of interesting ones at that. I've been working on some new pieces for I-Candy Couture's handcrafted jewelry and hair accessories and I am loving the outcome of them. Also ICC will be releasing some new goodies really soon... sshh... secret! This post might be a little more picture heavy then most of my 6 RFM Posts - so you are warned! ;)
#1 - Received a bunch of goodies from Incoco last week and am so stoked to be able to share it with you. I put them on yesterday and it's been 24 hours since I have had them on. Needless to say - they are actually doing really well and so far are meeting my expectations. I am doing a full review as well as a mini tutorial and first impressions video that will give you some of my thoughts :)
#2 - I'm officially addicted to Pinterest. I will be placing my link here on my website so you can check out all the goodies I'm currently in love with and trust me - there are a lot. I have everything categorized and separated into boards that will allow me to go back and check them out. I love finding new goodies - it is so addicting. The foodie ones are probably my favorites - but I'm not discriminating against any other board. lol http://pinterest.com/honeygirlk/
Come and hang out with me and see what I am crushing on right now!
#3 - I actually filmed 2 tutorials this week. One for an inspired St. Patrick's Day look and another using the Milani Cosmetics goodies that they sent to me. I will admit however, I haven't even attempted to edit them yet... lol - I have to find the time to do it this week - but things are seriously crazy.
In the images pictured above - I am using cosmetics from Milani. I will post the complete list of products when I upload the tutorial. The cool earrings can be found at I-Candy Couture. :)
#4 - After tons of requests - I have finally been able to gather my entire Julep collection (thanks to my Julep Maven membership) and snap a photo of it. It's a great selection of colors so far... and I really enjoy my Julep goodies.
#5 - I've received a lot of emails this week - mainly on topics with regard to cyber bullying. I think that most of it stemmed from my most recent video vlog that touched base on it very lightly. It didn't have many views so I didn't think that it had been the contributing factor. But my posts on Facebook about the subject has also made a few people come forward. I will be touching base on this subject in another video really soon. Remember: CYBER BULLYING IS WRONG!
#6 - I am in need of a detox this week. Salads, Green tea, the whole nine yards. My body always has that feeling about once a month - so tomorrow... watch out - because IT - IS - ON!
Have a wonderful week everyone - wishing you all the best.
