D.Y.I. Chain Headband

What you need:
Chain, Elastic, Needle, Thread, Pliers
Rings(optional)

Step 1:
Measure your chain from ear to ear if your making a double chain headband you would double the length.
 
Step 2:
Attach rings at both ends.
If you don't have rings attach the ends of your chain to make a continuous chain.
 
Step 3:
 Measure your elastic from ear to ear across the back of your head.
 
Step 4:
If you have rings loop the end of your elastic around your ring and sew it together.
If you  don't have rings simply loop the end of your elastic around your ring and sew it together.
 

This is how it should look when its done.

Sojos Dog Food Mix Review

I received a sample of  Sojos Dog Food Mix from Swaggable. The mix that I recieved was Sojos turkey complete dog food.



A wholesome GRAIN-FREE dog food that you simply combine with water to create your own fresh, homemade dog food. 1 pound rehydrates to 5 lbs. of fresh, raw food. Made with USDA FREEZE-DRIED raw turkey and other all-natural ingredients.
 
Sojos Dog Food Mixes are all human grade ingredients such as:
Sweet potato, USDA turkey, whole egg, broccoli, celery, apples, flax meal, pecans, pumpkin, cranberries, basil, dried alfalfa, ginger root, dried kelp. 

With that being said I love the fact that this product doesn't have anything in it that maybe harmful to my dogs. When I took the food out of the bag it seriously reminded me of Thanksgiving. It was really easy to prepare, all I had to do was add water and let it sit. One of my dogs isn't picky at all while the other will pick through her food and only eat what she wants. I didn't know how my dogs would act when I gave them the food. Suprisingly the both ate it. I could see myself buying this food for my dogs.

2lbs.bag of mix = 10lbs. Dog Food $24.10
8lbs.bag of mix = 40lbs. Dog Food $85.50

I  received these products(and coupons) from Swaggable for review at no cost to me. I receive no monetary compensation for my open and unbiased review.

Maybelline Turbo Volume Express Mascara Review!!

I was at the store and decided to go on a stroll through the cosmetics department. While strolling the Maybelline Turbo Volume Express Mascara caught my eye. I picked it up in 251 very black. The packaging states that you get 7 times the volume, and that's what really peaked my attention. Lets see if it works. 
 
Here how it was packaged.
 
This is how the bottle looks.
(I'm loving the bottle!)
 
The brush is the run of the mill average size brush.

These are my lashes without mascara.

This is after applying the mascara.
( My lashes are sparse but the mascara makes them stand out more.)

My Opinion

Overall I think that the mascara makes my lashes look a little thicker. There were a few clumps. The mascara did flake a little and ended up in my eye and that wasn't fun. The mascara is not waterproof so I didn't have a problem taking it off with baby whips. I spent less than $8 on this mascara so its reasonably priced.
 
Have you ever tried this mascara and if you have how do you feel about it?

10 Day You Challenge - 8 Fears

8 Fears

1. Failure plain and simple.
2. Falling no matter what the distance is to the ground.
3. Snails because I stepped on one when I was a child and It burst and I couldn't get the stuff off my foot (Its a total phobia for me).
4. Snakes, just because I know they can bite and possibly KILL ME.  
5. Mold, when I was like 6 I was getting apiece of bread out the bag and when I pulled it out it was covered in mold (Freaked me out)!
6. Going anywhere by myself , I think it stems from me watching so many crime shows because anybody can be a killer and strike anywhere or anytime.
7. Diabetes
8. Heart Disease
(Diabetes & Heart Disease both run in my family)
