*WARNING* Non decor related post to follow...

So, I don't win things. I just don't. All that changed last week when I entered a giveaway over at my friend Kristin's blog, Change is Necessary for Growth. She is a rep for Avon/mark and I won a whole slew of fantastic products!

First up is  mark Relief Effort Total Comfort Body Crème. It's a fair trade certified product and I won a whole tub of it! Not joking, the jar is monster sized :) I've been using it daily, and although the organic-y plant-y scent takes some getting used to,  it's a product I will use every last bit of.

here it is living in my medicine cabinet

Next up is mark The Big Fix 15-in-1 Benefits Balm. I have not yet used this product, but have no doubt in it's healing abilities. I'll give you an update just as soon as I can, which I'm sure will be fairly soon due to our casting weekend this weekend where I'll be meeting and shaking hands with dozens of finalists and, given my germaphobic nature, will be washing and thus drying my hands over and over and will be in desperate need of something soothing for my fingers. holy run on, batman!

Now, for the fun stuff! I love makeup, love love love, and Kristin sent along two goodies that are making their way up my 'must use' list. The first is mark Keep It Going Longwear Eyeliner & Shadow in Iconic. It's a fantastic hunter green and golden tan color. I applied it with a q-tip, though an eyeliner brush would have been preferable. I used the green color to smudgily line my eyelid and the golden creme to blend. I wore this along with my second makeup win, mark Juice Gems in Cherry Pop. Ok, I use the adjective 'awesome' quite freely, but this stuff really is awesome! It goes on in the prettiest sheer pink and lasts and lasts. It is a bit sticky, but not overly so and smells and tastes like strawberries! I've posted a pic below of me in my 'marc face.' I took a few close up, but was scared so a 3/4 shot is all you're gonna get!

Hi, my name is Ashley. I am not comfortable looking at pictures of myself.
Thanks, Kristin!
