Wholly Guacamole and Jennie-O Turkey Burgers are a winning combination! Giveaway!


I was selected to be a part of a promotion with Wholly Guacamole and Jennie-O. I’m already a big fan of both, so I was quite excited! I received a package with a  few cool things like a Wholly Guacamole T-shirt and a Meat thermometer. But, my favorite were the free coupons for Wholly Guacamole and Jennie-O.  So, off to the store I went to buy my favorite Guacamole and some Jennie-O Turkey Burgers. I quickly selected the Classic Guacamole 100 Cal Snack Packs and the Spicy Wholly Guacamole Dip. I had a bit of search at my local Walmarts but finally found the New Jennie-O Turkey Burgers Jalapeno Jack.  Let’s just say they were worth the search! I already like the regular Turkey Burgers but this new one has just the perfect spicy kick!

Face & Cheeks:“I used mark Min-A-Real Cream-to-Powder Foundation to give Rashida’s skin an even base. Then, I layered mark Touch & Glow Warm Glow onto her cheeks to give her skin an extra glow. I finished with mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy.” Eyes:“I started with mark Please Hold Eye Primer to help the eye shades last all evening. Then, I applied I-mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in Barista close to the lash line on her eyelid. Next, I used I-mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in Tiki above the previous line. I applied mark Keep It Going Longwear Eye Liner and Shadow in Exposure as a brown eyeliner to the top of her eyelids. After that, I added mark No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner in Foxy Brown to her lower lash line. Adding the final touch to her eyes, I applied mark Lash All You Want Mascara in Black to the top lashes and mark Lash All You Want Mascara in Brown/Black to the bottom lashes.” Lips:“To create bold lips, I applied mark Lipstick Full Color Lipstick in Cha Cha.”


Face: “I started by applying mark Powder Buff Natural Skin Foundation as a base to create an even skintone. Next, I applied mark Glowdacious Illuminating Powder in Amped Up and mark Just Blushing Powder Blush in Cameo to compliment her beautiful skin, adding some extra color.” Eyes:“I began by applying mark Please Hold Eye Primer to extend the wear of her eyeshadow. Then, I used the center left shade from mark On the Dot Neutral Palette on her lid, blended it then pulled it out to elongate her eyes. Next, I applied mark What A Line Felt Tip Eye Liner in Brownie Points onto the top eyelid.  I filled in her water rim with mark No Place to Run Eye Liner in Jet Set and used On The Dot Neutral Palette as liner under the bottom lashline. I completed her eyes with two coats of mark Scanda Lash Mascara in Blacklash.” Lips:“To add the final touch to her stunning look, I applied mark Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon in Hot Sauce.”

set things right      min a real 2012   just pinched_Peachy_Product 001

 I received set things right Loose Perfecting Powder, min-a-real Cream To Powder Foundation and just pinched Instant Blush Tint and these are perfect for Spring looks! My favorite is the set things right mineral-infused powder. It is great to use over foundation or even alone. I also like the min-a-real cream-to-powder foundation because it is not messy, simple to use and leaves my face looking fresh all day.
