Black Friday Holiday Facebook Social

Join me, this Black Friday weekend for an Online Beautycounter Social.

This holiday season give the gift of safety. We shouldn’t have to compromise our health in the name of beauty, and now we don’t have too.

Why is this so important? Did you know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the U.S. WILL BE diagnosed with Cancer in their lifetime? Or that our children’s generation is the first generation to live sicker and die younger than the generation before? Genetics hasn’t changed that much in the last 50 years, but something has, and I believe it has to do with the toxins in our environment that we are exposed to every single day.

I’m not suggesting that we should live in a bubble, and there really is no way to avoid these toxins completely, but let me help you make an easy switch. It’s not about perfection, it’s about progress.

Beautycounter has created a line of safe, stylish, and chic products. Products that you will love using and products that you will love recommending to your friends and family.

So this weekend join me from the comfort of your own home, or from your phone while you are waiting in line, do a little shopping, and be entered in to win up to 4 products at 1/2 off with my Mystery Host Giveaway!

Also, I will be giving away over $100 in products, so be sure to join me on Friday and find out how you can win!

This event will start at 12:01am EST on November 28th and will last until 2:59am EST December 1st

All orders must be placed by 2:59am EST December 1 to be eligible for any giveaways or contests. No exceptions.

One of my dearest friends isn’t doing so well these days. She has a brain tumor. If left untreated it will take her life. She needs to raise $30,000 this month just to pay the surgeon’s fee so she can have brain surgery to remove this tumor.

I want to help Heather raise this money, but I can’t do it without you!

I invite you to come take a look at Beautycounter. These products are amazing. They are completely safe. No parabens, phthalates, fragrance or any other harmful toxins! Not only that, but they also deliver the results we are looking for!

I will be donating 95% of my commission to Heather and her family for the month of September. So help me save a life while also saving yours by making small changes to your personal care products.

Join us Monday, September 15, at 7:30pm EST right from the comfort of your home. All you have to do is log into Facebook, slip into some comfy pi’s, just hang out and learn all about this amazing company and their life-changing products.

I’ll have a couple of videos for you to watch. A few pictures to look at. I’ll be available for any questions you might have. And I’ll give you time to do a little shopping!

The Collection
Our fifteen essentials. The Face and Body Collections, as well as all three Lustro Face Oils, and Lustro Body Oil. Lustro Face Oils help promote soft and nourished-looking skin. Collection includes three different face oils: Lustro Face Oil 1 – Calendula, Lustro Face Oil 2 – Jasmine, and Lustro Face Oil 3 – Ylang Ylang & Wild Chamomile. Glow Sugar Scrub refreshes skin and the senses with a natural, cleansing exfoliant and a refreshing lemongrass scent. A few drops of rosemary-citrus scented oil can be applied directly to your skin, or mixed into Hydrate body lotion for a silkier finish. A safe and luxurious beauty experience.

Face Collection

The six products you need for your healthy daily skin care regimen. Routine Clean gently washes away impurities and makeup, morning and night. Rosewater Uplifting Spray refreshes skin. Depending upon your skin’s needs, follow with Every Day or Every Night creams. Use Any Time Eye Cream in the morning, at night, or throughout the day. Two or three times per week, replace Routine Clean with Gentle Exfoliator to reveal smooth, healthy-looking skin.

The Body Collection

The four products you need to keep hair and skin looking clean, healthy, and beautiful. Clean shampoo removes build-up. Rinse conditioner helps restore luster. Wash body wash gently cleanses skin without over-drying. Hydrate is a lightweight moisturizer perfect for everyday use. All products are lightly scented with notes of citrus that enliven the senses at any time of the day.

Lustro Face Oils

1. A luxurious blend of seven radiance-boosting oils—including organic argan nut, organic grapeseed, organic marula, meadowfoam seed, rosehip, rose otto and sea buckthorn—deeply nourishes skin with antioxidants and vitamins. This concentrated, yet lightweight elixir is easily absorbed, sinking into skin for lasting moisture (and making it the perfect primer for makeup). Calendula oil provides a warm, floral aroma, plus refreshing moisture that is excellent for sensitive skin.

2. A luxurious blend of seven radiance-boosting oils—including organic argan nut, organic grapeseed, organic marula, meadowfoam seed, rosehip, rose otto and sea buckthorn—deeply nourishes skin with antioxidants and vitamins. This concentrated, yet lightweight elixir is easily absorbed, sinking into skin for lasting moisture (and making it the perfect primer for makeup). Jasmine oil provides a sweet floral scent—plus it promotes the appearance of increased elasticity, and is excellent for dry or mature skin.

3. Liquid luminosity (with a touch of calming ylang ylang and wild chamomile). A luxurious blend of seven radiance-boosting oils—including organic argan nut, organic grapeseed, organic marula, meadowfoam seed, rosehip, rose otto and sea buckthorn—deeply nourishes skin with antioxidants and vitamins. This concentrated, yet lightweight elixir is easily absorbed, sinking into skin for lasting moisture (and making it the perfect primer for makeup). Ylang ylang oil provides a creamy, delicate aroma—plus it promotes more balanced looking skin. Wild chamomile soothes and improves the skin’s texture with a fresh herbal scent.


Beautycounter believes children deserve to be protected—which is why we’ve taken special care to create a bath collection that is pH-balanced and gentle on the skin (and smells yummy, too). Kidscounter Bath Collection includes Squeaky Clean Body Wash, Nice Do Shampoo, and Not a Knot Conditioner.

Protect All Over Sunscreen

This broad spectrum all over sunscreen works on your entire body (and is safe for use on your entire family, too). Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide, the lightweight, water-resistant formula sinks into skin without leaving white streaks or that tell-tale smell. PROTECT All Over’s non-nano UVA and UVB formula also includes aloe vera that hydrates skin and green tea and blood orange extracts that supply antioxidants. Wear PROTECT All Over Sunscreen from Monday to beach day, to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

Protect Face Sunscreen

This broad spectrum face sunscreen with powerful UVA and UVB blockers is lightweight yet deeply moisturizing, so much so that PROTECT Face can be worn alone as an everyday moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid and safflower oleosomes supply and retain hydration, green tea and geranium extracts soothe, calm, and balance skin, while non-nano zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide safe, mineral protection from UVA and UVB rays. Wear PROTECT Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Face Sunscreen alone or under makeup to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

Complete Lip Collection

Everything you need for beautifully healthy, happy lips. Includes each of our six universally-flattering Lip Sheer shades, plus Lip Shine (for a clear, healthy dose of lustrous sheen and a hint of vanilla planifolia).

Safer Because: Our Lip Sheers get their soft touch from plant-based ingredients such as jojoba esters, and their light fragrance from real vanilla — not from synthetic flavors, or ingredients that are linked to health harm.


Our scientifically-proven line, Countertime, revolves around deeply hydrating, nourishing, firming, and lifting formulas that effectively fight the signs of aging. All six products are composed of powerful, natural, and botanical ingredients.

Nourishing Cleansing Balm


Nourishing Cleansing Balm melts into your skin, while removing makeup, moisturizing as it cleanses. It can double as an overnight face masque for extra hydration. This comes with one cleansing cloth. Raspberry Seed Oil and Cranberry Seed Oil hydrate and revitalize the skin, while Vitamin C brightens skin tone.

Shave Shaving Cream

This shave cream is specifically formulated at a milder pH than traditional shaving creams to minimize irritation and ensure a clean, close shave for both men and women. Ingredients like witch hazel minimize irritation and razor burn while emollient and fatty acid-rich coconut oil and shea butter condition and smooth skin.

Shine Collection

Time to shine. What makes make-believe even more magical? A little play makeup, of course. At Beautycounter we believe in creative play — which is why our Kids Shine line is 100% safe and super-subtle (so it’s perfect for little ones). Includes a trio of kid-appropriate products sure to make dress-up time even more fun:

Shine Bright Lippy Gloss: A good-for-her gloss that lets her smile shine through.

Stellar Shine Nail Polish: A pop of glittery polish for itty-bitty fingers and toes.

Pearly Powder: A barely-there, shimmery, glimmery finishing touch.

Who knew safe, could be so beautiful?



I know, it’s been awhile since I’ve done ‘Friday Favorites’, my apologies. If you know anyone or anything that you think should be featured let me know! Email me, Facebook me, Twitter me? (That last one sounds weird!)

Anyways, today I wanted to share with you something new that I am doing and much deserving of a ‘Friday Favorite’. I thought that I could come on here and just talk about what it is and who it is, but I thought that I should tell you my story. I wanted to share why I made this choice. Why I knew I needed to join this movement.

To be honest with you, it all happened kind of quickly. I had a friend who was very passionate about Beautycounter. She talked about it all the time, but I never really saw myself doing that ‘whole thing’, you know, working from home, trying to be a salesperson, (because I’m not. At all.) I just couldn’t see myself doing this, and trying to make a living off of it. It just wasn’t for me.

I was content already with my busy life. I had my own small business that was really starting to grow and demanded a lot of my time. I had just started working with my church and being in charge of Communications in The Women’s Ministry.  Not to mention my full-time job of being a mother to Jaxsyn and Adelaide. I mean, who was I kidding, I didn’t have the time to devote to something else. And especially something like, selling beauty products.

But then I received a call. I guess I could say now that it was a call that would change my life. I listened to a very nice, very personable lady describe all of her success doing this sort of thing. She had made a lot of money. She was passionate about her career choice. She was pretty inspiring. However, she was not from Beautycounter.

I had thought about what it would mean to sell Beautycounter. At first, I thought about doing it just for myself. Getting a little product for me was worth it. I wouldn’t make this a career, but I would make it a sort of ‘coupon’ way to buy what I wanted.

So then I started doing a little research. Now I know when people think of the word ‘research’ they think of some long, drawn out process, but that wasn’t the case at all. Just a little ‘googling’ and I learned all that I needed to know.

We have been deceived. Companies have broken our trust because of what they put into their products. As a culture, especially recently, we have noticed the trend of worrying about what goes in our food. We have been told over and over that what we eat is just ‘food-like product’, and while that is true, I’m afraid that we have been distracted by this idea that we have neglected to think about what we put on our bodies. 

And so I texted my friend, that night, and told her that I was going to make the commitment. She was thrilled. I ordered my starter kit and I was in, er, business.

I hesitate when I use that word, business. Not because what I do is not a business, but because it’s more than that. This is a movement. This is women standing up for themselves and saying ‘enough is enough’. And that is something that I will always have time for.

Let me help you become a part of the movement. Because we deserve better.


He’s Been Trying to get Your Attention

There’s a blog circulating around on my Facebook page titled ‘God will give you more than you can handle: I guarantee it.’ It is by the author of Let me just say, I couldn’t have said it better myself.

This piece is perfect and it is exactly what I needed to read.

I was always the one telling people that God knew how much they could handle and that He wouldn’t give them more than they could handle, and until I read this piece I believed that. I mean, after all, our God loves us, so it was hard for me to believe that He would just sit back and watch us suffer, to the point of breaking, but then I read this piece and I realized I had been very wrong.

You see, God isn’t sitting back watching us suffer. He’s patiently waiting for us. All. Of. The. Time. Just waiting. I know my history with patience, and it’s never been a good one, so could you imagine, just sitting back watching your creation do all of it so wrong, just waiting for them to turn to you.

So this is why this piece spoke so clearly to me. As I’ve mentioned before a huge struggle for me in my walk with Jesus is giving up control. I really, really, really don’t want to give up control. I know that I could never handle anything like God and I know that it really is in God’s hands, but I’ll be damned if I don’t try to figure it out myself. So if the author is wrong (I don’t think so) then wouldn’t God giving us just as much as we can handle be playing into our own desire for control?

As I approach the 1 year anniversary of moving to Texas I really appreciate this piece because it makes everything clear. I’ve mentioned my struggles with the move, I’ve mentioned my feelings of loss, and hate, and sadness. But when I read this piece I experienced a new feeling. I experienced love.

I experienced love because I knew that God gave me more than I could handle when He moved us to Texas. How do I know this? Because I finally turned to Him and I admitted to myself that I needed Him in order to survive this chapter of my life. For those of you who struggle with control you know how hard it is to admit to yourself that you need someone else.

If I didn’t know how loving my God was, then I would struggle with the idea that He opened these doors out of love, but He had been patiently waiting for me, and He had given me ample opportunities before to surrender, but I wouldn’t. I needed something drastic and He knew that and, well, here we are.

And I’ve survived. Let me fix that sentence, I have survived only by the grace of God. He has been with me from the beginning. He has walked beside, walked behind, walked in front of me, but most of the time He carried me.

He gave me more than I could handle because He knew that was how He could get my attention. His timing was perfect. He gave me more than I could handle so that I would finally and completely turn to Him.

And He did all of this for me. Because He made me in His image. Because I am important to Him. Because He can use me. He did all of this for me because He loves me.

I don’t deserve it. Let’s be real honest, none of us deserve what God gives us. Even when we think that He has turned His back on us, and forgotten us. Even when we think our plate is too full. We don’t even deserve to be forgotten (even though He never forgets). My point is this, maybe It feels like He’s given us too much. Or maybe it feels like He’s nowhere to be found. Whatever the case may be, we just need to remember that He’s always there. He’s there, just waiting for us to need Him like He needs us. Wrap your head around that for a minute. Like He needs us.

So, friends, let me be the first to encourage you to watch your plate get full, feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, get ready to give up, but then remember He’s right there and then give it to Him. All of it. But most importantly, give yourself to Him. I mean, after all, He’s been trying to get your attention.
