Review of New York Biology's Retinol



Made in the USA, I love that!

This is a great product. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth! That surprised me, happily. It takes very little to cover the entire face and absorbs quickly. It does not feel greasy or leave a film on your skin. I was very skeptical about using Retinol. I am 51 and starting to get fine lines. I used it before bed and definitely felt a slight tightening sensation that made me feel good. It also felt moisturizing at the same time. My face was night stiff, or feel like it had a mask on. It just felt so smooth. I kept touching my face. I have used some different skin care but none that made my face feel smooth.   
I feel like what it says on the box is what it delivered to me.  I cannot wait to see the results after using it for awhile longer.
The packaging is great also. I love how the pump dispenses a the right amount, then is clean when you grab the product.  
It doesn't have crazy perfume scent, which I also appreciated.

Directions say:
Apply all over face and neck after washing skin. Lightly massage with fingertips. Can be used once or twice a day.  I chose to use it at night to work while I slept. I have read when using Retinol to start slow and low. I have never used a Retinol product so that is why I used it at night. 
This is definitely a good one. I did receive this in exchange for an honest review.
Overall I am very happy with this cream. Thank you so much New York Biology for making a great working product.

While I am in Planning/ Journaling mode...Here is a RAK

I have been watching some Periscopes recently and just won a RAK (Random Acts of Kindness).
So it is my turn to pay it forward. Which I am happy to do and bless someone.

I just popped on Ladybug Stampin's scope and was happy to play a game, I never expected to win or want to win the stuff. I just really enjoyed playing. I am hoping you will enjoy the game to be announced on the scope.  You must follow me at thewifeypoo on Periscope and be in the chat to win.
The rules seem to be 25 on to start the giveaway. So be sure to share it out.

There will be a lil something for Homeschool moms, Stamper moms, Scrapping moms, & Planner moms.
So here it is. An album with paper starters, Stampin' Up Crayon Cuties, Making Memories glitter flowers, and felt petals, Pink ribbon that was from my mom, Project life cards, washi, personal size folder, creative memories, and project life stickers, and Confidence to Teach by Debbie Strayer.

So follow me on Periscope and be on to play the game.


Convention 2016

This will probable by the last one I attend. Joe will be starting 8th grade in July and I don't really feel like I need to go to Orlando again. Maybe I will just get the recordings after this.

I just got these Frixion pens from Pilot, they are erasable. They come out like a marker but they do not bleed. I think they are pretty cool. I am a little obsessed the paper & pen products.
I also just got a new Filofax Original Personal planner. I am hoping this takes care of  all the things I need to do in one book.
The last year I have been toting around at least three books, one for our fam biz, one for my south home school group, one for my north home school group, and sometimes one for just for me to jot personal stuff in. My back has had enough!





I am new to the decorating planner and I made a mess out of a few pages but I will get better!
I am enjoying the Pilot Frixion Pens. They will add nice color to the planner.

May is so busy!

I have a really busy this May with my home school groups. I am the Middle School coordinator of one and the VP of another. I also just realized I admin 12 pages on Facebook alone, along with this blog and one group web site. I also schedule appointments and answer the phone for our family biz.
 Joe getting a plumbing lesson 

We have had our K-8th grade graduation, our very formal High School graduation, we just did our annual two day used book sale, end of the year beach party. 

It was filled with happy tears.

Got books?

 Tonight I have the Birthday Club dinner, then Friday night is the last MNO for my north group.

Next week doesn't slow down either with Dr's appointments, and our states Home School Convention (yay!).

My south group is also busy and doesn't stop for the summer because we are a mom's support group as well as a home school support group.

As with everything give praise, and do all things to the glory of God. I am so blessed and honored to have wonderful people in my life.

Who's Holding Up Your Arms When You Are Weary?

If you are a home school mom and are getting to the end of your rope at the end of the year, who do you turn to?  Who is your Arron or Hur?

Exodus 17:11 "So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed." Eventually, Moses became weary, and so Aaron and Hur responded by holding up his arms until the Israelites were able to finally defeat the Amalekites. 


Do you have a group that supports you? A trusted friend to say you can do this?  I encourage you to seek out Godly women, Titus 2 women that will hold you up in prayer, phone/text support, or just getting a quick cup of Joe to get you out.  


If you don't know anyone in real life that will encourage you, there are many home school sites with wonderful support. I just joined Homeschoolscopes on Facebook. What a fun place!

You get to see real women who love to share their hearts, ideas, blogs, and resources. 

2nd Timothy 4:1-8  
I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at[a] His appearing and His kingdom:Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
We need to finish well. With Him all things are possible! God Bless you in your journey.

At work with the hubs

Today I am keeping my beloved company as he works. We are in beautiful Treasure Island, FL. Someone got a real sweet deal with a fixer upper. It is small but charming right across the dare I say street, it is more like a skinny sidewalk from the beach.
Oh how I would love to be further south and steps from the beach.

I really love living in Florida and I am so thankful to be here.

My hubby works beyond hard to provide for our family and I appreciate when I can go with him and see beautiful houses.

God has given him incredible talent with his hands and he is well loved by everyone he works for. #proudwifeypoo.

I love this man to the core if my being.
As it is the National Day of Prayer, I hope all you wives lift up you husbands with a special prayer today for strength, integrity, honor, wisdom, health, and humility. I pray you all respect your husbands as head if your homes and as God's gift to you all.

Life goes on

Time has come and gone as people in my family have.
I have grieved for a very long time, in my humble opinion. I never thought I would be that person that would get stuck, but there I was stuck in the sadness of losing my mom.

Well God sustained me and I am on my way back to life. I ate myself to a gross version of myself I didn't even recognize. I have lost some of that and I will continue to work on my diet for health sake and my family.

I am looking forward to a great summer. We have just finished another year of our co-op with our group ggmfl.com It was a great time with cooking, p.e., photography, foil lettering, civics, card making and more.
Valentines goodies.
