Did You Get A Lot Of Chocolate?

How was your Easter?

I got this:

Tom surprised me with it--er, I mean, the EASTER BUNNY did.

The kids?

Were left with this:

For like five minutes I thought I might have gone overboard.

Then I checked Facebook.

And I saw people were getting American Girl dolls. iPods. iPads.

Can that Easter Bunny come here too?

I mean...holy crap.

Were those people trying to compete with Mariah Carey's "dem babies?" or what?

We had chocolate for breakfast.

Chocolate for lunch.

We might have had chocolate for dinner if my friend Jennifer hadn't invited us over.

We enjoyed a real meal there. Ham. Potatoes. Green bean casserole. Deviled eggs.

I also managed to get some photos of Natalie:

She said, "Natalie bunny wants to be left alone."


(She had a lot of chocolate. And Peeps. She loves Peeps like I do.)

I hope everyone had a chocolate-filled Easter!

3D Fiber Lash Mascara by Younique Review and Giveaway!

I am not a beauty blogger.

But I still appreciate good makeup. Sometimes I like to shock my husband by actually putting some on.

I was contacted by Holly asking if I wanted to review Younique's 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. (Younique, for those who don't know, is a company with naturally based makeup and skin care products. They also don't test on animals and have gluten-free and vegan options.) I said, sure, why not, I can put it on and confuse my husband. The 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, by the way, is supposed to make your lashes look thick, but at the same time have them look natural.

I was impressed by how it arrived.

In an awesome case.

It came with two tubes and instructions, which is a good thing, because at first I looked at the two tubes and was like, "Um, what?"

Basically you put your favorite mascara on first. Then you use the transplanting gel, followed by the natural fibers, followed by the transplanting gel again.

My eyelashes did appear to be thicker.

I was trying to look as tranquil as the model. It didn't go well. And pardon my frizzy hair. I had just washed it.

For someone who doesn't know what they are doing, this was very easy. I didn't poke my eye out. I didn't accidentally get the stuff on my cheek.

And I managed to baffle my husband.

"Something is different..." he muttered as I fluttered my thick lashes at him.

If you want your own 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, check out Holly's Younique page. For the month of April, for every 6 mascaras sold, Holly is personally donating a set to a woman who is fighting cancer, or has in the past.

Holly is also giving a lucky reader a chance to WIN their own 3D Fiber Lash Mascara.

(And I was not compensated for this post. I was given the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara to review. My opinions are my own.)

Contest Rules:

--Must live in the US, Canada, or Australia
