Thanks for checking out my page! I promise to update it as often as I can. With a little baby girl... it won't be as often as I like... But I'll do my best! -Pinky Swear.
Hi! I'm Jana. And I feel like I am just starting to figure this "life" thing out. As a mother of a one year old girl my world has changed. I still love finding great deals, enjoying wonderful restuarants, and catching a fun happy hour with friends…but I'd skip it all for a smooch & snugglefest with my little lady!
I love an intense film, crave music, and recently (and finally) got back to running. Here's hoping these Mommy lbs melt away.
I work and play a little too much. I'm flawed and BLESSED. No doubt about it.
But yes, in my life before becoming a Mom, I have travelled and lived in many places. I am a southern girl by birth and in my heart. Originally from Alabama I have lived in VA, NC, GA, MO, KS, IN, TN, SC, and FL. I married a Michigan man... GO BLUE! I went to UNC...GO HEELS! And grew up all Bama... ROLL TIDE! I'm SEC football, ACC basketball... and always prefer College sports to Pro Sports. And I know enough about them all to be dangerous.
I am plugged into pop culture like a champ! Whether its celebrity gossip, hot trends in fashion and make up, or current events...I'm your girl. Oh, and I'm a total wine-o! I love a great wine list.
I have make up in my bag from 2003... no joke. After reading this article... I'm (probably) going to throw it out. So here you go... When it comes to your make up back or other bathroom products... when do you throw things out?
From an article in yahoo health with advice from Sonya Dakar
SKINCARE products: 2 years
SPF: FDA makes them put on an expiration date. Use that.
FACE MASKS: 18 months... but if its starting to dry out, toss it.
FOUNDATION: 6-8 months.
POWDER: 18 months
ZIT CREAM: Use expiration dates
MASCARA: 3 months (OMG...3 months! Uh oh)
PENCILS: As long as you sharpen as you use, up to 2 years.
LIQUID EYE LINER: 3 months. Don't mess around with eye stuff.
LIPSTICK/ STAIN: 2 years. But sniff it... if it smells off, toss.
HAIR PRODUCTS: Many contain alcohol as a preservative. Should last a few years. But if it looks or smells off, toss.
NAIL CARE: Use Expiration dates. If ingredients are seperating, toss.
One great tip they gave is to buy your products in smaller portions. That way you are less likely to keep them laying around until they go bad.
Needless to say... I've got a lot of products to throw away. Oh Goodie.
