Beauty Swap Jackpot

Winter has lasted long enough mostly due to the extremely cold temps not so much the snow...love me some snow.   The only thing that is getting me through this never ending winter and keeping me from slowly falling into a severe depression is the wonderful sights and colors of spring.....and makeup!!  I'm so excited about spring and in its honor I recently picked up an adorable new pink lipstick from MAC in hopes it will entice spring to arrive.
 Crystal Cattle and Cowgirl Crush teamed up to hold another beauty swap and I cannot express how excited I was to be partnered up with Courtney Nolz owner of Cowgirl Crush.  If you haven't been to her online boutique I suggest you stop what you are doing and go there now and browse the amazing clothing and jewelry.  This is one of the top boutiques that I shop from!! 

I was definitely spoiled with what I received and I can't wait for you all to check out what I got and link you up so you can go out and get some yourself!  So without further ado.......

First off I received an amazing peach colored fringe scarf and a peach colored wrap bracelet that were way cute!  You can check them out at Cowgirl Crush

Victoria's Secret Heavenly Perfume-this stuff smells amazing!!  If you're looking for a nice smelling perfume this is a must try!

Fresh SUGAR tinted lip treatment- I received this in the color Berry and it is amazing.  It is like a chapstick that is tinted but leaves your lips feeling smooth.

Benefit They're Real Mascara- this mascara is legit.  It is jet black and does all that stuff like volumize, lifts, lengthens, separates.....etc

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer-a good primer is a must have.  It keeps your makeup vibrant and lasting!

Benefit 15 hour primer- like stated before.....always use a good primer.  I didn't see much of a difference between the 2 and neither felt greasy so either one is a great choice if looking for one!

Revlon Saucy Nailpolish-this is a great color that is a mix of red and orange!

That sums up the contents of my gift box and I hope that you find some of these items to love just as much as I did so go out and gettcha some!!

Super Bowl Commercials....#AmericasFarmers

The day is upon us......when we get together in large groups and eat an insane amount of wings and other delicious finger foods that we all seem to regret later.....ah yes its the super bowl.  They say its the second biggest day after the new year that people again try to start to diet the day after (ain't that the truth!)

I don't watch professional football.  For some reason I just can't get into it.  College football on the other hand I am obsessed with (Go Spartans!)  I honestly wouldn't even know who was playing in the super bowl if it wasn't for the fact that I was out in Denver the other week when the broncos were playing for the spot in the big game.  I was sitting in the airport waiting for a flight home when the whole airport erupted into cheers.  My sense of elimination told me they must have won.

While i don't watch pro football I do find myself watching the game for the commercials. You all remember last year right?  If not here is a recap of the famous Dodge Ram Commercial.  I'm hoping that this year is just as profound.  I love seeing farmers and ranchers promoted on the big screen!!!!  I have seen early releases of commercials and I have to tell you that you need to be on the look out for the Chevy commercial.  It is amazing!!

Another commercial that will be airing around the country is one from Americas Farmers featuring someone that I have actually had the opportunity to meet and hear speak through some of my social media events and that is Debbie Blythe from Life on a Kansas Cattle Ranch.  She was also chosen as Farm Mom of the Year!!
The commercial is pretty amazing in the fact that it shows a split screen of how even if you are from the farm or live in the suburbs everyday begins with a farmer.  Check out the commercial here....

There are a total of 12 farm families that have been recognized so feel free to check out all the commercials and head over to Americas Farmers to meet the other families and learn a little something about them!
I hope you all have a great Super Bowl Sunday and remember......your new years resolution can always begin again tomorrow :)
