November 2014 – Girl Meets Glitter
Elizabeth Mott you’re so FINE Eyeliner – J. Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint – Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Base – TEMPTU S/B Highlighter – Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray. I absolutely LOVE the bag this month. Overall rating for this bag 3/5. I didn’t like the Wonder Lip Paint and how I wish the eyeliner was in black (that’s all I wear).
December 2014 – Thinking of You
CAILYN Cosmetics Just Mineral Eye Polish – Sexy Hair 450° Blow Out Heat Defense Blow Dry Spray Mini – tarte deluxe lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara – Beauty Without Cruelty A.H.A. 3% Facial Cleanser – NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Balm. Not the biggest fan of the bag this month. Overall rating of this month’s bag 3/5. Sick of seeing facial cleanser! Lots of repeat brands this month.
January 2015 – Fresh Start
I’m not really sure why this picture is in black & white. When I sent it from my phone to my computer is magically did that on it’s own!
Hikari Cosmetics Eye Liner – Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow – La Fresh Eco-Beauty Be Good. Good Day. Day Moisturizer – Velvet 59 Lipgloss – Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush. Not a big fan of this bag either, it’s hard to tell but it’s white on one side, blue on the other, with a red zipper. Overall rating for this month 3.5/5. MORE silver eye shadow :(. Didn’t really like that lip gloss either.
February 2015 – #IPSYLOVE
Eva NYC Up All Night Volumizing Spray – Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil – Emite Make Up Professional Eye Lash Curler – City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain – ModelCo BLUSH Cheek Powder. The bag this month was kinda cute. Overall rating for this month’s bag is 3/5. I won’t use the face oil, not a big fan of the volumizing spray or lip stain. But I’m very happy I received the eye lash curler!

February is Heart Month! Heart disease is often thought of as a man’s disease, but did you know more women die of heart disease per year than any other cause of death, including breast cancer? Each year, 455,000 women die of heart disease as compared to 410,000 men. Moreover, heart disease causes 1 in 3 women’s deaths each year, equating to the death of approximately one woman each minute.
Women are not only more likely to die from heart disease; they also have higher mortality rates due to complications after a heart attack. Though this might be frightening to hear, this reality is due to the misconception that men’s and women’s hearts are the same and that their symptoms of heart disease and heart attacks are the same. A 2011 study focused on heart disease and women, conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), found that women were twice as likely to die within one year of having a heart attack than men who also suffered a heart attack.
When UnityPoint contacted me about sharing this I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. As a registered nurse I know this, but it’s important for everybody to know. People need to take extra steps to take care of themselves. Starting with a healthy diet, exercise, and annual physicals!
