Default post image

EWRT

As you’ve probably heard, I’ll be speaking at one if the LARGEST blogging, technology innovation, social media and branding conferences coming to Cincinnati, Ohio in October! Road Trip 2013 is going to be a blast, and I’ll be sharing the stage with Seth Godin, Tanyalynnette Palmo (of BIG FIX fame!), Crystal Paine, Peter Shankman, and my personal favorite; Make-A-Wish founder Frank Shankwitz.

If you want a full run-down of the conference, click here.

I can’t wait to share with all of you what I’ve learned first hand from blogging! I’ll be covering some pretty heavy topics- from dealing with trolls to using social media (the right way) during a crisis.

We already have a few amazing sponsors lined up- including Google! Several brands are already jumping in to also learn and share. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor, you can check out more here.  It’s truly going to be an amazing conference that I can’t wait to not only speak at, but also attend.

You can click the image below to download the conference booklet to find out even more!

Want to attend?

There are several different ticket options, but BLUE tickets are the only ticket plans that EXCLUDES hotel accommodations.  Silver and up all include hotel in the cost.  In other words, you only have to figure out how to get there! Which is a huge plus. Very few conferences offer this option. Also, you can split up your payments into 3 installments for a more budget friendly option. You can check out what’s included by clicking here. Want to purchase tickets? My discount code will get you $500 off by typing in “DomesticDebacle” without the quotations.

We want you attend, so personal sponsorship is encouraged. So many conferences try to limit the blogger/brand relationship, but that is NOT the case with Road Trip 2013. We don’t care if you come in a full-on Ronald McDonald costume, we just WANT you there!

Win your very own Tony Awards Red Carpet Look from Mary Kay! CLOSED

Default post image

I’m a huge makeup junkie, and rarely go without it. My absolute FAVORITE brand of makeup is Mary Kay. I have very sensitive skin, and Mary Kay makeup doesn’t bother me at all, AND makes me look my best. They literally have something for everyone- whether you want a bold look, or lean more towards neutral. I’ve compared some of the expensive high-end makeup at the department store counter to Mary Kay, and Mary Kay wins out every time!

I don’t know about you, but I was glued to my phone watching the photos come in of celebrities on the red carpet for the Tony Awards last night! But I wasn’t looking for what gown they were wearing, I was looking at their makeup!

What’s great about Mary Kay Makeup is that you can get the same Tony Awards Red Carpet Makeup Looks at home! My friends at Mary Kay have already put together two of their favorite looks from last night’s awards with some tips you can easily recreate.

Pucker up in a bold red lip inspired by Scarlett Johansson:

SJMaryKay

  •  Cover the entire eyelid with Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist and dab Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Crystalline onto the inner corners of the eyes and under the brow bones
  • Apply Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner in Black along the top lash line and wing outward.
  • Generously coat top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Clear. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red directly from the tube, using a lip brush if needed. Blot with Mary Kay Beauty Blotters and reapply for intense, long-lasting wear
  • Apply Mary Kay Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation and contour using Mary Kay Mineral Bronzing Powder in Sandstone

 

Turn heads with defined eyes and a neutral lip inspired by Anna Kendrick:
AKMaryKay

  • Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Matte-Wear Liquid Foundation then dab Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in Sparkling Cider on the apples of the cheeks
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in White Lilly to the eyelid and up to the brow bone, then blend Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Silver Satin onto the eyelid up to the crease
  • Apply Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Coal to the outer corner of the eye to create a smoky effect then line top and bottom lashes with Mary Kay Eyeliner in Black and smudge with a Mary Kay smudger brush
  • Generously apply two coats of Mary Kay Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black
  • Line lips with Mary Kay Lip Liner in Neutral. Apply Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beaute to complete the look.

So now for the giveaway!

  • Tell me which look (between Scarlett Johansson or Anna Kendrick) you love the most. You can only pick one in your comment! One winner will win the entire Mary Kay Makeup look they have chosen.

One winner will be chosen on Monday, June 17th at 11:00am by random.org. Giveaway valid for US residents over the age of 18.

How to conquer the mold and mildew in your home.

Default post image

sponge0707

As we’re entering the summer months, you’re probably noticing the humidity rising by the amount of frizz your hair is experiencing. Or at least, I am. For some reason, our region of Ohio has the WORST humidity. And with humidity, comes mold and mildew (ew, gross). But here are some of my tips and tricks to keep the mold and mildew away. Or delay it a bit.

To start, make sure you’re keeping things dry. Keep all surfaces wiped down, watch for leaks, and make sure the water from your tub STAYS in the tub. When spills happen on your carpet, make sure you pat the area as dry as you can, and get a fan on it as soon as possible.

In the bathroom, it’s a real struggle to keep the mold and mildew away, and I admit this is one area that drives me bonkers. If you have ceramic tiles, use dishwasher detergent and hot water to rub them down with a good sponge or brush. If you have some stubborn spots, you can use a cut lemon to rub on them and they will dissolve easily. Just make sure you leave the lemon juice on for about 15-20 minutes to let it really do it’s magic.

It’s a lot easier than you think, and by using my tips you can go longer between cleans!
