I have been using elizabeth arden's green tea face wash for about a week now. (sally's beauty for 9.99) It contains green tea extract which rids your skin of acne and refines pores. I hardly ever love a facial product. But this one, I wouldn't say I love it but I am so far very fond of. It has made a dramatic difference in my skin. It's cleared up all of my spots, and marks.
However, I still have two tiny little scars from before. The rest has completely cleared. Even when I did get a breakout, which has only been once since I started, it still reduced the redness and appearance greatly.
Overall, I like the product very much the only thing I wasn't happy with was that it as well as most products, dried out my face! Not too awfully nothing a little drop of pond's mosturizer or makeup removal wipes couldn't fix. I choose the pond's makeup removal wipes to swipe across my face right after I shower because it relieves they dryness from the soap overnight.
I believe I will be sticking with this product for a while. Another plus for most women: it leaves a pretty green tea scent. I was more concerned with how well it worked rather than the scent but it added a little extra.
Has anybody else tried this product? Plan to? Love it? Hate it?
Always let me know, leave your feedback thanks!

Lately, I've been reviewing kashi go lean crunchy cereal. It's supposed to be extremely healthy & packed with antioxidants. I have been eating the cereal with almonds. It's great! I only eat one small bowl & didnt even want to eat another thing until later in the evening. You can get a free sample of this product. go to my freebie blog to learn more: http://www.kendraswriting.blogspot.com/ it will be in several of thee freebie links Ive listed there.
You can also get kashi go lean bars,cereals, etc. The cereal was very good and it was super crunchy. & since it supresses your appetite for soo long I can see it makes a big difference for women trying to lose weight, or just eat healthier. I have always been a big fan of the special k cereals to help with weight loss but now, I like kashi even better!
If you have trouble finding the freebie link then just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave me a comment on my blog (listed above) and Ill direct you straight to it.
I really love feedback & opinions. I would love to hear from you. what you think about the product. Did you try it? Love it? Hate it? All comments are welcome! Please do leave them. :)

Lately I've seen several posts about how to make him jealous or pretend to accidentally call/text him if you're tired of waiting for his call. This was a little upsetting being a woman & all, & I thought why the hell are women giving advice telling other women to play games anyway? First of all, when he sees that youre playing those silly, high school games he's gonna be turned off. & as for making him jealous goes, don't bother. If you have to go through this much crap just to get his attention then he's not worth it.
A couple of other women are giving relationship advice like me, but as women do we really want to tell other women "how to make him love you, or make him jealous or how to get him to call you" If he's not man enough to make a simple phone call or pay attention to you then that sends a red flag. HE DOES NOT CARE & IS NOT INTERESTED, MOVE ON! now, we are women, we were not put on earth just for men. We can have a life of our own with out having a man right beside us at all times. It is ok to be a little independant. I promise it will not kill you.
I think that we have been sending the wrong message to young women for too long. When I see magazines in the checkout line they always say things like: how to make him fall in love,etc. or the one I hate most: "How to please your man" or "how to keep him interested."
HELLO! why are women telling women that ur job is to keep him satisfied?! WRONG. All I see anymore is things about how to run your ass off trying to keep him. We do not need to work to keep him. Sure put forth effort & do nice things. Im not saying let the man do all of the work in the relationship Im just saying why is it that women's lives revolve around making a man satisfied with us?
I dont know about you people but my MAN (key word there man) is happy with me no matter what I do or do not do. He does not need a blow job just to be happy with me. (forgive my french) This topic just upsets me. We need to stop putting so much damn energy in trying to "keep him" or "get him" & start putting some well deserved energy in our own lives. Use a little of that energy on yourself. Instead of spending money on how to please him mags, use that money to do something nice for yourself for a change.
Real men will appreciate us no matter what. Real men do not have to be reeled in by some magic love spell. When it really comes down to it the relationship does not revolove around what you have learned to do in bed from cosmo. Am I right? Do what makes you happy then in the process you will end up finding who really is right for you. If your too busy doing these magazine ideas then, you really will miss the big picture when it comes to relationships, & maybe even pass up the right one.
Why don't women spend more time giving other women tips on pleasing themselves instead of a man. We'd be alot happier that way. & a man who respects us will not expect all of that artificial crap anyway.

I just had a woman ask my advice on her dating crisis.
CRISIS: The first time she & a guy she really liked went out together he seemed super interested later into the game he started acting a little less interested. He wouldn't return her calls & texts when she finally reached him his excuse was "my texts aren't going through." Thats it, but what about his answer button is it broken too? So he assured her he'd call her back later that night. Well she has been waiting by the phone for a day & a half now!
My advice to you: Never, ever wait by the phone for a guy to call! Never! If he respects you he will not leave you hanging just for the hell of it. If he does happen to disappear for a couple of days when you're supposed to get together then he's no good for you. Your time is not important to him & more than likely neither are you. As harsh as this may sound, it's the truth & it's time women hear the truth.
If he's gonna start ditching you, leaving you hanging or stand you up with no good reason then count on getting used to this if you plan to stick around. You do deserve better don't you?
So, that was pretty much my advice to her. I'd like to know what you all think. What would you say to a person asking you this kind of advice? I love your feedback. I'm always happy to hear what you think you would do in this situation.

1. Use a translucent powder & sweep it across lids & under & all around. This will keep the shadow from smearing all over your face when those little flecks fall onto your upper cheeks.
2. Start from the inner corner of eyes use the lightest shade i.e. if you're using purples then use the lightest shade on the corners.
3. Fill in you lids & go up to your brow (or lower if you prefer) as you reach the middle thats where you start blending the already colored with the color your applying next.
4. Now for the outer lids, lay the color on thick. The thickest color should be at the corner of your eyes & at the outer corners.

There have been many "tests" over the years on how to determine if he's the one. At some point we all wonder if he/she is the one. But how do we actually know what to go by before saying I do? Well thats where I come into play & tell you just how you determine whether or not he has the qualities of being the one.
Quality number 1:
How does he treat his mother?
Is he respectful to her? Does he raise his voice or treat her with unkindness? This is an important thing to find out. Chances are the man your so deeply in love with will more than likely treat you with the same respect or lack of respect he shows towards his own mother. Sounds strange but if you really test it you'll see. Paying attention to things like this can really open your eyes to what your relationship may hold.
Quality number 2:
Does he care for you when you're sick?
This is another very important thing to know before going to deep into a relationship. Let him see you sick when women are sick we tend to be a little bit on the helpless side & need some extra help. Does he bring you tissues so you don't have to get up with that pounding headache, is he patient, caring & loving or does he act like he'd rather be snoozing until noon on a buddy's couch? You don't want to wait until you're married to find out that he doesn't care enough to help you out a little & show you the care you deserve.
Quality number 3:
How does he act around other women?
We all can agree that this is one is top of the list important. When you both are out somewhere with friends or a group socializing, steal a few glances at him while your chatting with the girlfriends & see just how he acts toward other women. This does not mean set him up to sleep with your best friend just see if he feels the need to flirt. Chances are if he's flirting heavy then he's not commitment ready. This doesn't mean call it off completely just try having a serious talk with him & let him know that it's not ok to embarrass you & disrespect you in such a way. If he's fine with that then you could have a good chance. however, if he blows up & gets really defensive then he probably doesn't want to committ to just one woman or either he needs to boost his ego. Thats not ok. If you're not enough for him then no body will be he still needs time to mature & see that ego is not everything. Faithfullness is important if he can't be completely 100% faithfull then he is NOT the one. If he does truly love you then he won't see other women, he'll only have eyes for you & it will show!
Quality number 4:
How does he act when you fight?
Does he blow up, over react, or get too defensive? Can he own up when he makes a mistake? These are all qualities that can be improved that is unless he says or does things to hurt you or your feelings when he's upset, verbally abusive, abusive, violent, etc. If he falls under any of those categories then drop him now! If he can keep his cool & deal with things rationally then he could be husband material. Make sure he listens & finds what you have to say important. If he doesnt care to listen now, then he wont ever. Every couple fights, it doesn't mean they won't make it but both people have to compromise. You can find a way to work things out to where you're both happy. & If he truly cares then it will be important that you're happy as well.
Quality number 5:
How well does he treat others?
Is he rude, uncaring, & disrespectful to those around him (co-workers, or people who are beneath him professionally, service personnel) or is he the stop & ask if you need help changing a tire kind of guy? I'll be the first to tell you, you do not want a man who's rude to others, even strangers or if he treats others as if he is better than them or that the rest of society owes him something. Men like that are always self centered & thats the last thing you want. If he's good to others then great. If he's just a little rough around the edges then you could work on that. Just mention it after the waitress says how are you & he says fine & continues to order just say hey, next time why don't we ask her how she's doing too? Or when it happens You start speaking up. When the waitress says hello, how are you? you say "Fine, thank you & how are you" say it loud & clear so he hears you. It will catch his attention & very soon he will begin to form the friendly habit.
Quality number 6:
Who comes first?
This seems to be a tough one for most women. Does he regularly stand you up to go hang with his friends? Does he blow you off because they want to do something with only him, does he ask you to come along, or does he make time for you both equally? What woman wants to be left alone in a basement full of beer drinking men watching the game? We don't consider that a date it also doesnt count as spending time with us. There comes a time when the woman should come first i.e. He's with his guy friends hanging out & you call to ask if he can pick up something at the store on his way over does he say hey I gotta go my girlfriend needs me or is he more like the "yeah, yeah, whatever I'll get around to it when I feel like it" type? If so then he's lacking total respect for you & more than likely does not care enough to bother making things work. You will probably end up more frustrated & disappointed than happy.
Quality number 7:
Are you his "princess"?
Does he pamper you? Note that pamper is not the same as spoil it does not mean that he bows down to you just that he can celebrate his appreciation for you as a woman. And EVERY woman deserves it. If he's the type that does not want to show you you're special, important & different from any other woman, then you should really figure out whether it's really worth it to be with someone who does not treat you special & let you know how much your loved. Not many women would prefer this kind of relationship. We all desire some kind of special appreciation, the kind of love that he only shows you.
Quality number 8:
Is he a power holder?
Does he feel that in order to be in any relationship someone has to hold the power or is he fine with equality? This must be something you know before you ever become serious with a person. It could mean serious control issues & could do alot of damage to you. Usually you can tell whether or not he needs some kind of power in a relationship very early. Does he give you orders or commands? Does he say what goes or does he take your needs & wants into full consideration too? If he needs to have control over you then it would be in your best interest to get out asap! A man like that will not make you happy or make you feel special you'll end up feeling like your duty is to please him. or else.

I haven't been doing much blogging lately because Ive been in surgery. I'm out & healing now surgery went ok. It was my first major surgery so it definetly spiked my anxiety. I was terrified. Even had to have anxiety meds before surgery they made me crazy! Now I seem to be ok just in ALOT of pain. So I've been praying that now all of my problems are gone. Gone for good & that I won't have to live this life anymore. I am trusting God to take care of everything & heal me. I honestly believe that I'm well now & will be for a very long time. So what I wanted to say was to all of you that kept me in your prayers THANK YOU. It really means alot. Prayers can never hurt. I will be doing alot of that. I'll be back to normal & living a real life now & then I'll be back to my regular blogging. In the meantime all of you that have kept me in your prayers please keep me in them. I'll keep you all in mine as well. Until then, HAPPY BLOGGING

Beauty Tip Of The week:
Another way to take care of a bad pimple:
Make a paste using epsom salts & water use something very small to mix it in ( I use a coke bottle lid) Pour about a half a teaspoon of the salts then add a tiny, very tiny drip of water then mix well until its a paste. Add more water or salts as needed then apply a few layers of the paste to any trouble spot pimple, blemish, etc. Let it dry then go to bed with it. Rinse in the morning & The redness & swelling will be reduced or nearly gone. You may have to repeat for a couple of nights just to be sure it goes & stays away for good. This will leave your skin clear of scarring or those spots that tend to stay around ages after a zit has cleared.
I use this so often. It's one of my favorite!
Please let me know what you think if any of you try my tips I'd love to hear feedback & any tips you may have too!
