Mary Kay Eyeshadow Swatches

Mary Kay Eyeshadow Swatches

I recently got my Mary Kay eyeshadow palate set up and I am thrilled with the colors. So, I did the only logical thing: swatch them all! My neighbors were surely wondering who was sticking their arm out of the second story window and photographing it. Well, too bad! Because it was fun!

Here is my arm in all of its swatchy glory…

Ladies and gentlemen. If you are a member of the SF Bay Area; you must come see this show. If you love Harry Potter; you must come see this show. If you love improv; well…you know the drill. There are still a precious few tickets available.

I hope to see you all tonight. I will be in the audience–laughing loudly and applauding wildly.

Operation Sunscreen is Underway!

Standard

I am in a competition to see how many soldiers I can protect this month. You may be wondering how I can protect our troops… well… Mary Kay is working with Soldier’s Angels to provide support and supplies for our service men and women. One of S.A.’s programs provides care packages for those who are deployed overseas, and while donations of toiletries are frequent, often sun-care needs are overlooked.

My personal goal is to provide a sun-care package to 25 soldiers by July 31st, and I need your help! Each $37 package includes sun protection and lip protection, as well as an after sun gel that eases windburn.

I am personally matching each package purchased, so together we can impact the lives of 50 soldiers!

Thank you for helping me meet my goal! Please leave a comment or give me a call at 510.779.2386 to let me know how many packages you’d like to donate.

With love,
Stacey

ps. Soldier’s Angels is a non-profit organization, so I will be providing you with a receipt for your taxes. Let’s make a difference!
