Usborne Books & More


I am a new Consultant for Usborne Books & More – awesome children’s books! I LOVE these books, and I’m thrilled about my new journey with this company. I’m honored to help change lives with these wonderful books. Usborne are fabulous books that capture a child’s imagination and interest. Ready for The Bookstore at your Door? Let’s do it!

Take a look at these wonderful books visit my link below and place a order if you see something your child or grandchild might like:


I know a lot of people are rolling their eyes thinking oh great another person selling something. The way I look at it I can’t put a price on my kids education. We as parents put so much faith into the school system and completely forget that we still have to teach at home. I am very huge on my kids reading, because it all starts with literacy. It’s time to Make a Difference, any time is a good time to read. Get your kids off the technology and make them pick up a book. The best thing about Usborne Books is they work towards expanding your children’s minds and imagination.

We are quick to buy the newest technology, the hottest toy for our kids but what about books. What about something that will help grow their minds. We are quick to buy things for ourselves like Younique makeup or it works wraps, which I’m am not saying its wrong to buy those things. If it works for you that is great, if you are a consultant for those products that is great as well. I decided not to go with those products because for me to sell something I have to be able to get behind its movement. Which is why I decided to sell Usborne Books & More and become a Consultant, Literacy is something I can get behind because anymore we forget how important reading is and I want to bring back its importance and share mine and my kids love for reading with others. Usborne Books & More opens a whole new world of reading & imagination for your children.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Please take a little time out visit my website and place a order if you find something you love, we have books for every school age, even books for babies and toddlers.


Today I will be decorating and putting together my kids bookshelf that their poppop made for my little sister and I when we were my kids age. I’ll post pictures of that tomorrow. 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog please take a moment to look at previous post that may interest you.

My Favorite Mommy/Nap Time Activity

First off I know it has been 4 days and I haven’t posted anything so I promise I wont over load on post today 🙂 ❤

When I first had my daughter I didn’t have a lot of mommy time as a first time mom I was so worried about failing so worried about not being able to be a good mom. I always feared I would do something wrong, I wouldn’t listen to the mommy inside and do what was best but the one this I learned and I learned it very quick as a mommy we can only do our best and some times we will fall short but that’s ok we are suppose to make mistakes. My biggest thing was not leaving my daughter for the whole first year of her life she had only stayed with someone else a hand full of times if it was myself or her father and she only stayed with them for 2 hours tops. So when she would take a nap my favorite thing was watching my shows 1:00pm was Wendy Williams 2:00pm Lets Make A Deal 3:00pm Ellen now she didn’t sleep this whole time she would actually watch Ellen with me this was my mommy time while I was a stay at home mom.

When I became a working my that of course changed now my daughter does stay with other people even sleeping over (only family of course) and my favorite mommy time consist of a long uninterrupted steaming hot shower as my fiance says it feels like lava lol and sleeping. Those are my favorite things when I have mommy time unless we are going some where special I take a little “mommy” time to do my favorite hobby which is my makeup.

What is your favorite mommy/daddy/nap time activity? Let me know in the comments below or on my facebook page MommyinMakeup

Makeup Review


Quick makeup review.

This was my look on Thanksgiving, Yes I was feeling myself that day 🙂 I didn’t think pregnancy could look so good 😀

Now don’t get me wrong I see a lot wrong with my makeup, the lighting etc but I don’t care why because I am OK with my imperfections.

My foundation is Estee Lauder I am a huge fan of the Double Wear Maximum coverage foundation. If you go with this foundation please remember a little goes a long way, I literally only use a pea size of the foundation and it give me a full face cover.

My lips, eyeliner, highlighter, contour & blush are ALL bhcosmetics. I am a huge huge huge fan of bhcosmetics they have amazing deals all the time, and even with out the deals the makeup is very inexpensive & a great quality. I can put any of the makeup from bhcosmetics on in the morning and it will last me ALL day. I also used bhcosmetics to do the girls from the Cinderella Affairs Makeup.

All of bhcosmetics products are

  • Paraben Free
  • Non-Irritating
  • Allergy Tested
  • Clinically Tested
  • Cruelty Free Product

Go visit and check them out yourself. Let them know MommyinMakeup sent you 😉

My lipstick is their Color Lock Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in Seductive

I used their Contour & Blush palette for my contour.

For my Eyes & Highlight I used their new NUDE ROSE 12 color shadow palette. (Beautiful colors compliments any outfit)

My blush is out of their 39 color special occasion eyeshadow & blush

One of these days I’ll be able to give you guys a quick video of how I apply my makeup distractions and all 🙂

The power of beauty

Before I get started on what this blog is truly about let me first say in my last post I posted cold and flu prevention please check it out. I know most of it is well known but we don’t always prevent getting sick. There is a nasty little bug going around and it hits you out of nowhere so please try to stay healthy this winter…

Well I was sent home today from work not in trouble or anything of that nature but that nasty little bug I was talking about has gotten the best of me. So I am in bed I slept most of the day and now I decided to type up a post for you all 🙂 My blog is called MommyinMakeup so I know a lot of you are wondering well when will the makeup part ring is pretty little bell…well the bell is ringing. The one thing that people do is judge it doesn’t matter how nice you are at one point or another you judge. Don’t worry I do it to sometimes we don’t even realize that we are doing it. One of the main things I hear women and even some men judging other women on is BEAUTY. We all hear beauty is in the eye of the beholder some may not know what that means but it means that all because you don’t find him or her beautiful doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t or wouldn’t.

I have seen a lot of women lose so much confidence about themselves due to others talking them down. Let me tell you sweetie you are beautiful maybe not to them but who cares about “them”. I hear other girls say man I hate her because of how pretty she is, or are you kidding me he is with her, he can do way better, I look way better than her, or why is she so big and trying to look pretty she will never be pretty until she hits the gym. See that’s where people are WRONG that comment that you just made is what makes her better than you looks and all. People don’t realize including me sometimes that the words that come out of your mouth are what make you look ugly inside and out. I have friends who rock their natural beauty and I have friends who love their makeup it doesn’t matter how you decide to wear your beauty just wear it. Just don’t forget to be a humble person that’s what truly makes someone beautiful.

I personally rock both natural beauty and makeup, I hear a lot of people criticizing others for wearing makeup because “natural” is the only way well let me enlighten you. Everyone likes to believe that people (I’m not going to say women but I know a few fabulous men who wear makeup as well and they look gorgeous) < don’t judge go somewhere else for that 🙂 anyways back to what I was saying Everyone likes to believe that people wear makeup because it has some kind of magical power to make you into something or someone else well let me bring on the bad news it doesn’t turn you into anyone else if your a b* without makeup your still a b* when you put it on, not to say it can’t give the illusion of being someone else hint hint (Drag Queens) but at the end of the day those queens still know who they are and the people around them still know who they are it isn’t their makeup that makeup its the person behind it. I have days that I just want to be natural and I want to wear my freckles yes people I’m African American and I have freckles lol, then their are days will I will do a quick 15 minute face concealer, mascara, one eye shadow & a little gloss, but then there are days that I want to really enhance my beauty and I take a hour just to do my makeup.

It has always been my opinion that makeup should only be used to enhance the beauty that is already there. To help those beautiful eyes pop, to give those gorgeous cheek bones a little lift & color. I look at makeup like a art people can judge me if they want I’m fine with that but any time I put on my makeup I look at my face as my canvas and my makeup as my paint, When you start with a blank canvas anything is possible and you only add to the canvas you can’t change that its a canvas but you can enhance that canvas ( just my out look of it) and for you men who say you were deceived by her appearance because of the makeup she wore lets get real you knew she was wearing makeup when you met her stop playing the victim. When I started dating my fiance I wore makeup all the time, one day I decided I wasn’t going to and he still loved the way I looked freckles and all. When I do wear makeup it isn’t to please anyone, it isn’t because I’m insecure or that I’m trying to be someone I’m not, It is to enhance the beauty that my man sees every day, the eyes that he loves to look into, the lips that he loves to kiss. When you decorate a tree you don’t think that the tree is trying to be something else right? NO because underneath it is still a tree. So at night when I take off my makeup I am still a mommy, a soon to be wife, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, I still try to be a humble person (doesn’t always happen but I can admit that), I act not differently makeup or no makeup. If that person is a sweet heart 9/10 out of they will still be a sweet heart when the makeup gets taken off and the house clothes get thrown on. ❤


In a later post I will talk about my makeup and what products I personally enjoy using. I will also cover how I manage to take a hr out for makeup and still pay attention to my munchkins.
