Nerium AD – Before and After Results


Hello!

One of our Nerium Brand Partner has her husband using this product – and this is what he had to say…

You know – I think this stuff might just be working. I feel silly doing this, and then I see our commissions and just smile. Yes, I believe this stuff IS working very well. What do you think?” ~Steve Hargis

This product works, and the opportunity works to make a great income. Basically, the product sells itself… all you have to do is show your results and the results of people you know. The natural reaction by anyone is “I wonder if this would work for me?”  After you explain the 30 day risk-free trial period – most people are excited about trying it! DONE! Once they try it, they will love it and you will have a long -time customer!

Please let me know if I can share more about the opportunity with you… its working great for me and my family!

Find out more about this accidental discovery that happened at MD Anderson Research Center a few years ago. The story behind this product is as amazing as the results people are seeing from using it! I am so proud to be a part of this skin care revolution – and getting on board with Nerium International during it’s first year in the market has been a life changing decision for me and my family.

A great Cause … Little Brayden


A couple weeks ago I was enjoying lunch with my husband at Wiseguys in Harker Heights. We were discussing the day’s events and catching up when a young mother came in with her adorable little boy. I noticed him first because he looked about Sadie’s age – maybe about 18 months or so… then I noticed his Mother carrying a tiny little walking stick – the kind you see being used by the blind to navigate while walking. I am sure by that time I was unknowingly staring and trying to process everything I was seeing, trying to figure out what was going on with that beautiful little boy.  As the moments went on, I noticed that the little boy wasn’t looking at or focusing on anything and deducted that he must be blind. I was overwhelmed with emotion – initially thinking of Sadie and how we would be coping if in the same situation and then wondering how this young Mother was coping…and then…wondering what it must be like for a toddler to be in a world of darkness.

Then I noticed that his Mother was talking to him – just like normal. She was trying to drop off her flyer so she could get home for nap time. She was smiling and happy and something about that made me feel better – for them and for me. I guess as a parent you just deal with whatever you are faced with in the best way you can. I think that’s what this Mother was doing.

When she left, the owner of Wiseguys showed me the flyer she had dropped off and my suspicions were confirmed. This little boy – who I then knew to be Brayden was in fact blind and was born that way. He suffers from a condition called OPTIC NERVE HYPOPLASIA (ONH)  – which is the under developement of the optic nerves preventing the brain from receiving images that the eye sees.

Michelle Ellis, the young Mother of this amazing little boy has started a web page to keep those interested in Brayden’s progress up-to-date. BRAYDEN’S BATTLE FOR SIGHT  She is also hosting a fund raiser on APRIL 16TH at Oveta Culp Hobby Soldier & Family Readiness Center (18000 Battalion Avenue, Fort Hood).  This is a spaghetti dinner, silent auction and raffles to raise money for a hopeful procedure in China. Thanks to the help of everyone so far, they have been able to raise $25,000 of their $35,000 goal – which is so amazing! Please offer your support in any way possible – for this last leg of their goal, they need the remaining $10,000 to make the long journey to China where hopefully all their dreams can come true.

Here’s some helpful information for those who can donate;

  • Contact: Michelle Ellis (Brayden’s Mother) at (254) 383-5991 or email mellis.101@hotmail.com

Vintage Pearl Necklace -Reclaimed (Project)


Last Thursday – me & Ric headed out for San Antonio. We love to get away down there for a night out, dinner, recharging…and other stuff 😉 This time on the way down there we took a detour through Gruene, TX…a quaint nostalgic little town with a historical district that has been reclaimed by adorable shops and antique stores. Gruene will forever be a detour now – on our way to San Antonio. I found the coolest stuff there! An old planter stand (taller than me) that I repurposed as a wine bottle rack and a set of old railroad spikes that you will soon see in my Etsy store!

But the most unsuspecting find was this tiny pearl necklace piece – and when I say “piece” I mean it wasn’t all there – I think it was longer at one time – there was something more to it than what I found. I had no idea WHAT I would do with it- but I knew I had to have it – and for $5 – why not??

We arrived home from great weekend trip – and a few more fabulous finds found their way into the back of the suburban. The little pearl necklace layed out on my kitchen island all weekend while we fed kids – cleaned up after feeding kids – and fed kids some more. Last night as I was getting ready for bed – brushing teeth and all that – I noticed some old stretchy-beady bracelets in my misc. organizer in the bathroom- one of them I’ve never worn because it was too small the others were just old and have long been replaced by newer trendy pieces over the past few years. And there it was…the idea. What if I combined those old bracelets – with that tiny little pearl beauty??

Eureka!! Thanks to my hometown friend Stacey Bruce, I have discovered artist Julie Pishny &  the most fabulous handmade and inspiring jewelry line to share with you!

Here’s what Julie says about herself on Etsy;

“Life in the Prairie Lands of Kansas influences my Jewelry featuring bird nests, nature elements and found objects. Enjoy my online boutique filled with French inspired decor mixed with American farmhouse influences for the perfect eclectic mix.”

Julie has a talent and eye for vintage, yet natural beauty… and has created a line of amazing pieces that capture that place in your heart where “cozy & homey” live. Lest not forget stylish and trendy too though…these pieces have it all. Admirers can browse this beautiful work in Julie’s Etsy store at GardenologyKC – and she even takes custom orders! For my Facebook & Discover Fabulous fans… I hope to bring Prairie Thistle Jewelry to Central Texas this year!  

I especially thought of my friends Misty Cole & Cara Latham as I clicked through Julie’s gallery – but I bet there’s a little something for everyone here 🙂 Check out a few of my favorite pieces…
