Low Carb Comfort Food? It's Roast with Gravy!

It seems like most "comfort foods" are sky-high in carbs.
If you miss them, I've got a good one for you today.
It is not the "cleanest" meal ever, because it does have a few processed foods in it. So it won't work for some of you food "purists" (no judgment either way...promise).
But, if you're faced with falling off the wagon or fudging just a little...well, I think the latter would be the better option.
So here it is:

Youthful Wear Spotless Serum Foundation Review & Demo (A Dupe for bareSkin)

I was super excited when bareMinerals came out with their new bareSkin liquid/serum foundation back in May.
What's a good dupe for Bare Minerals Bare Skin
I used to LOVE bareMinerals loose powder foundation, but as I aged (and gained lines *sigh*), that powder tended to settle into those lines and actually age my look. I still drag it out every once in a while, hoping for great results, but find that it just doesn't work for me anymore.

Ivory Soap Clouds Experiment (Summer Time with Kids!)

Yes, it's been almost 3 weeks since my last post.
It's summer!
Plus, there was a holiday...AND my 41st birthday!
There's a garden to tend, a pool to clean, and
grass that just. won't. stop. growing.
I decided to incorporate a couple of my kiddos and do an experiment with the bar of Ivory soap I received (free) in my TLC VoxBox from Influenster.
To make soap clouds...super easy...super cool...
