Product Spotlight Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in Riviera Strip

Hello Dumplings,

          I absolutely love a really good multi use product in my makeup arsenal. Nothing is better than getting your money's worth, especially when it comes to makeup. I like shimmer strips because they give you a grouping of coordinated colors. You can use them alone or blend them together. The intensity of the color depends on the type of brush you use. A bigger brush diffuses the color to a soft shimmer. A smaller brush gives a more pigmented opaque result.

          I chose this particular shade because I felt it went best with my complexion. It is a mix of cream, warmer bronzes and cooler toned bronzes. I've heard people say that these could be used wet, but I haven't had much luck with that application.

          I mostly use this product in different combinations as eye shadow. It makes a lovely lid or inner corner color. I like to anchor it with a matte color in the crease to add dimension I also use a matte cream highlighter. I can easily create day or night looks.

          The other thing I like doing with this palette is blending the colors together with a big fluffy brush to use as a highlighter for the tops of my cheeks. I wouldn't recommend this look for day time because it is a bit shimmery, but for special occasions it creates a lovely.

          Lastly it works really well when placed in the center of your lips over lipstick or gloss. The shimmery color makes your lips look plush.

          Physicians Formula makes shimmer strips in different types and colors. I suggest you check them out. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Fun Peeps Inspired Recipes

Hello Dumpling's,

          I have been completely addicted to peeps this whole season. It's funny because peeps aren't usually my favorite Easter treat. I've gone through three boxes so far. I thought it would be fun to find some delicious dishes using peeps :) I hope you like what I've found. I can't wait to try some of these!


This is a way to make lovable peeps more grown up. I bet these are delicious.


    A cute twist on a classic favorite. I will let you how mine come out :)


                                           That peep in the back looks like he has an attitude lol.


                                       These look really easy to make. I think they are great for
                                       gifts or pot luck events because they would travel well.
                                       I'm so making these :)

These would be so cute for a kids party.

            Well now I'm jonesin for some peeps for sure. I can't wait to try some of these babies out. Have a PEEP-tastic day :)

Best Spring Dresses For An Apple Shape

Hi My Little Apple Blossom's,

          Being an apple shaped woman isn't easy when it comes to looking cute. This is even harder when it comes to sporting a cute spring dress. I scoured the interweb lol to find the best. I also tried to find them all in a reasonable price range :)

Coral Print Hi Low Dress  $18 This dress is the perfect color for spring, and being a shorty I love the hi low hem.

V Neck Ruffled Dress  $19 Okay, this dress makes me want to walk through a garden. I love the feminine detail. It also comes in a bunch of pretty colors.

Chevron Print Maxi Dress  $29 I love the retro print of this dress, and I think these colorss would look good on anyone.

Tube Maxi Dress $25 Dress it up, dress it down, wear it all around the town. This is one of those essential dresses.

Color Blocked Hi Low Dress $22 I love this dress. The cute accent of turquoise makes this so much fun. This is also another one you could dress up or down.

          When dressing your apple shape just remember to accent the smallest part of your torso. This is the area right under your bra line. The bottom should gently flow outwards from there. I hope this helps you out. Happy shopping, and if you find something cute tweet me @misplacedmoo.

Soap That Looks Like Donuts (I'm Obsessed With This Etsy Shop)

Hello Dumpling's,

          Oh my word lol, this shop is so amazing. I spent the better part of my morning perusing through all of the amazing soaps and concoctions she creates. It is so hard for me to choose what to buy. I honestly want it all. (Warning this post is going to be full of pictures lol.)

          The shop is called Aubrey Elizabeth Apothecary. Her products are hand made, adorable, reasonably priced, and of course vegan and cruelty free :)

Okay now for the pictures.

                                          Sushi  $17.75


                                          Macaron's  $7.50                                                

                                          Oreo's $7.50

          Also check out a new blog based on two of our characters Lily and Daisy. Daisy is featured in the Yam Yamz & Friends "Missing Daisy" book. Lily is a character in her own right. They are both very different and have different tastes. This blog explores those differences in a fun way. That's where I learned about this awesome Etsy shop. Please check them out and let me know what you think :) Lily vs. Daisy

To My Dearest Dumplings,

          My birthday is coming soon :) I really love reading other peoples wish lists so I thought I would share my list with you guys.

Sigma Sigmax Round Kabuki This brush just looks so amazing. I don't have anything like it in my collection.

 Sigma Sigmax Precision Round This brush would make my life so much easier when applying eye primer and concealer.

Cannon Vixia M500 HD Camcorder  I have been wanting a better quality camera for my videos for a while. This one is freakin amazing !!!

How To Beat The Blues


Hi Dumplings,

          We've all had those days when we wake up just feeling blah. It seems like once you wake up on the wrong side of the bed the whole day just doesn't feel right. Sometimes the blues hit you later on in the day. These are some of the ways I turn my mood around.

Write in a journal
     If you're feeling angry, anxious, confused, or sad writing your thoughts down will help you release them. It also helps you understand your feelings.

Take a shower
    Feeling clean helps everybody feel better, and use some delicious smelling products. Follow this with some pampering to your skin with moisturizers.

Drink water
     Doing something good for your body reinforces a love for your self

Move your body
     I know that when you feel down the last thing you wanna do is get off the couch. Trust me on this one. Moving your body not only releases mood boosting endorphin's, but it will also help take your mind off of what's bothering you. So work out, take a walk, or clean the house.

Put on some music
     Everybody has that list of songs that they love belting out and dancing to lol. I put together a list of songs I love Right Here :)

Watch A Scary Movie
    I know this sounds counter productive, but if you are caught up in a good exciting scary movie you won't be feeling blue :)

          I hope this post helps you guys :) Cheer up and know that things will get better <3

                                                                      <3 Jen
