Cover Girl Smoky Eye Kit Review and Giveaway!!!

I have always had a hard time getting that Smoky look I see all the stars wearing, so I usually tend to stay away from it. Give me one color shadow, some mascara, and that's all I'm used to. BUT, now thanks to Cover Girl's Smoky Eye kits, I have finally gotten to wear the Smoky eyes I've been looking at others wear!
And, it's so easy, even my 7 year old daughter can do it!
Thanks to Cover Girl and MyBlog Spark, I was sent 3 kits to try out, Glam, Natural, and Bold. My favorite was the Glam look, black and silvery shadow that made my eyes pop like crazy! It's great for going out at night, or just wanting to feel glamourous! I've been wearing the Natural kit almost every day, and it still amazes me what a difference it makes on my eyes! The Bold is nice too, but I would probably only wear that one for special occasions, it is a blue shadow and I just didn't like how it looked on me. 
What I really loved about these kits is that there were step by step instructions on how to apply all of it. THAT is what I've been needing, something to read and look at, so I know exactly what I'm doing! So finally, thanks to Cover Girl, I can  have the eyes I've been wanting for a long time! My hubby kept telling me how bright my eyes looked while he was snapping pics, (which will be up here as soon as he gets them to me!), and my green eyes needed something for that!

Happy Birthday Ashley, I miss you so much : (

Today is my little sister Ashley's birthday, she would of been 26. She passed away when she was 20 months old, due to heart problems. I miss her every day, no matter how many years go by, I always wonder what she would look like, what she would be doing right now, and if she would be healthy. When I found out I was having a daughter 7 years ago, I decided I wanted to name her after my little sister. My daughter acts JUST like my sis!
I wish I could remember all of the time she was here, but now I have to look at pictures to get back those memories. And the one thing I wish over and over I could forget, I can't. Why can't I erase that bad day, and keep all the good days?
No matter how hard I try, I can't forget that. I'd trade it for just one memory of me and my sister together, but I guess life doesn't work that way.
I love you Ashley, I miss you more than words can say. I know you're looking down on us, probably giggling that my daughter has your stubborness, but she also has your beauty and spunk, so I'm so glad I named her after you! Happy Birthday Ashley!

A Call for Help!

Hi everyone!
I was wondering if I could ask you all a favor? My family is hosting a Benefit for my sisters boyfriend, who was shot in the eye with a BB gun last month! He has already had 2 surgeries but the Dr's have NOT been able to remove the bullet yet! Sadly, they don't think he will ever regain sight in his eye, and worse yet, he is a Tattoo artist, so he's been pretty bummed out : (
If you, or you know anyone who might be able to help us out with prize donations, I would be sooo forever grateful to you! ANY donation is great, we are having a regular raffle, and later in the evening we will be having a Silent Auction for some larger prizes. We are thankful for anything, and if I can, I will feature you on my blog, along with having info at the benefit!
I thank you for any help you guys can give, I've been up the past few nights emailing like crazy!! So forgive me if I'm rambling, just gettting tired, lol!
Thank you all again!!!
