Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #TurtleTakeover   My Thoughts I remember the first time Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came out. My brothers and I could not wait to watch it.

It was a movie that not only reminded me of my childhood but it was also a great movie to watch with my family. Recently I was able to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with my nephews.

Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay

** I was sent a product for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay There is nothing more embarrassing then getting acne at my age. I hit the big 3-0 this year and I never thought that I would still be battling something that began occurring on my skin over 15 years ago. Recently I was sent the Clear Proof Acne System from Mary Kay. This system has four great products to help keep your skin free and clear. #1 - Clarifying Cleansing Gel - This gel is oil and fragrance free. It says to apply 1-3 times daily. I started out with one time each day just like the instructions said. I did notice that when I increased to twice a day it dried my skin out. The air has been horribly dry recently so I think that I will wait a few months before I try the twice daily again. But for now the once a day seems to be doing great with my skin! The Clarifying Cleansing Gel helps in reducing black heads … [Read more...]
