Tree Dazzler Deluxe Christmas Tree Lights

Why was I watching an infomercial recently and saw this on TV?  I was amazed but skeptical.  For $40 this promised to light up your tree to make it look like a professional did it.  So since I had not put my tree up yet, I thought “why not?”  You know that the WORST part of decorating the tree is the lights so this seemed like an answer to a dream.

I went on YouTube first and looked at a video and was pleased with what I saw and decided to buy.  When I did a google search I saw that HSN had the same item for the same price BUT they had easy pay so you could split the payment in two.  I did go ahead and pay the $40 lump sum payment.

I took some still shots so you could see how it looked.

Just as they mentioned, you take it out and plug it in and you are ready to go.  It really can’t get any easier.

Here is the video from HSN’s YouTube channel showing the demonstration of how it works: https://youtu.be/Q5Evg39z-HM

When I tell you that this was the best $40 I have spent in a while, I am so serious.  It made decorating the tree so much easier because if you had gaps you didn’t have to worry because the size of the lights would fill in the gaps.

The lights have 3 modes: still mode, shimmer mode and show mode.  Each mode has corresponding colors that show in that mode. I keep mine on show mode which gives a continuous flash of multiple colors constantly.

I ordered it Nov 25th and it shipped Nov 29th so I had it in about 1 week. If you are tired of struggling with lights, you MUST have this.  HSN is currently doing easy pay on THREE payments and it’s now $50 – I guess they are trying to give people’s pockets a break from Christmas shopping.  Here is the link to their site if you would like to purchase or just find out more information: https://www.hsn.com/products/tree-dazzler-deluxe-christmas-tree-lights/8205253

The official Tree Dazzler website still has it for $40 but you have to pay shipping and handling: https://www.treedazzler.com

Anastasia Beverly Hills gloss

Hey all.  I just did a video on these glosses but I thought I would provide you guys the pics that I took after using the glosses.

Am I the only person that is almost off of the matte lipstick train? It’s not like I’ve tried tons but the ones that I have tried have been drying.  I know that this is the nature of the beast (matte = dry) but still, my lips are tired.

I can’t seem to find a matte that doesn’t eventually dry my lips out and I’m assuming that I never will.  I can’t help but think “why am I paying a lot of money to dry my lips out beyond recognition?”

Any who, I went back into my happy drawer and found this set of mini glosses from the ABH Fall Collection that I bought a few months ago.  I always loved the feel and colors and was just wearing them sparingly.

I decided to give my lips some much needed TLC and switch back to glosses for a minute.  Why?, because it’s cold and I just want another layer covering my lips to combat the elements.  I live in Atlanta but it’s still cold in the mornings and after the sun goes down. I just feel like a gloss or creme lipstick is better for your lips in the cold because you aren’t drying them out twice: once from the lippie and second from the weather. Just my opinion.

For all of my Sephora Beauty Insiders and VIBs, the ABH glosses can be purchased at Sephora: http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830http://www.sephora.com/lip-gloss-P404830?skuId=1791730&icid2=products%20grid:p404830

You can still purchase the kit on the ABH website: http://www.anastasiabeverlyhills.com/mini-lip-gloss-set—fall/ABH01-18302.html?cgid=makeup-lips#start=3&cgid=makeup-lips

So here are pictures of me wearing each gloss.  I had worn all except Amber and Carla. I love the creamy consistency.  They all went on smoothly and evenly except Amber, which was the lightest so I wasn’t surprised. Have you worn these? What are your thoughts, fav colors?

Birthday scents, Sephora mistakes and Scentbird

Hey all,

My birthday was on the 3rd so I wanted to share my new scents that I bought and scents bought for me.  I treated myself to some Scentbird fragrances.

By the way, if you choose to try out Scentbird, I have a link where you can try it for free: https://www.scentbird.com/r/d/patriciajackson6

Did Sephora redeem themselves?  You gotta watch to find out.  Check out my video showing how Sephora almost ruined my scent buying spree: https://youtu.be/F14s6hZ25ps

I’ve been duped . . . Part 2

You know by following me that I posted a video previously where I was duped on some super expensive fragrances: Flowerbomb and Spicebomb.  I had purchased these fragrances from Scent City Perfumery and when I got them, the codes inside the box had been removed.  The fragrances also didn’t smell the same as the originals which were acquired previously through Scentbird.  I told everyone in that video that I would do another video because I had also purchased 2 Juicy Couture fragrances that I was now unsure of their authenticity.

So we fast forward to now and I have bought the authentic scents from Luxury Scent Box (I’m a subscriber).  I bought Viva La Juicy and Viva La Juicy Noir and compared the scents.  Check out the video to see the results of what happened next:

Lash break: mascara or falsies????

I have been wearing falsies consistently since the beginning of the year. I decided to take a break for about a month but I’ve been missing my lashes (falsies) like crazy. I need all of my Lash-in-nistas to let me know how you got over the hump. Have you taken a break? If so for how long? Are you still wearing your falsies consistently? Do you like my look with falsies or au la naturale (with mascara)?

Here’s my new video on the mascaras I’m currently wearing: https://youtu.be/-_NQQKY2Lps

You can check out my previous videos to see me in lashes: https://youtu.be/ymqiDbUGG_g

BUYER BEWARE: How I got duped by a perfume company and how I got my money back

Well most of you know by now that I LOVE perfume.  Well, I fell for a company that claimed that they sold legitimate fragrances for up to 80% off.  I know, you’re thinking “you fell for that?”.  Yes, I did.  I got burned but I also got vindication.

Check out my video to see what happened:

Green Chef food subscription service

Hello all,

Yes, I have joined the food box bandwagon.  We are all so busy nowadays.  I live in Atlanta and traffic is a beast.  The last thing I want to do after sitting in traffic is stop and go grocery shopping so I thought I’d give this a try.

I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but I’m a Pescatarian (for the FIFTH time). This time, I’m going to do it.  I will be 50 in November and I’ve got to do better by my body. So I did my research and saw they had a Vegetarian option.  Even though I’m not hard core about eggs, milk and cheese, I still want to stick my toe in the vegan pool just to check it out and see how the food taste.  I want to see the options I  have outside of the normal way of eating. All of the food is organic so I decided to give them a try.

Check out my video that has a link where you can get free food for a week ON ME!!!!
