‘Eye’ Am In Love

Hello all!

I know, where the hell have I been huh??? Well, just living life being busy with working, shuttling kids around, and managing all my side hustles b/c who likes to sleep, lol.
You can see a bit of what I have been up to on my FB Styled by Mowad group. I am sharing tons of deals and styles I am loving over there. So go check it out and join in on the fun.
Here’s one of my most recent shares and it is just too good to not share with more. I get so many brands in my IPSY box (with the box you get full size items!) that I just don’t pay attention to until a couple months later when I see the box is still sitting on my desk with everything in it. I just so happened to be out of mascara and grabbed this brand new box of Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ from my JULY(!!!) BOX and ran out the house.
I opened it, looked at the wand and was like, “meh”. I applied it to my lashes and it went on so smoothly, which was different from what I am used to where I can feel it sticking to the lashes with each pass. So I still wasn’t hyped. This went on like black ink, so smooth and wet. Separated my lashes like a comb going through wet hair. Again, I don’t like mine to just be skinny strands of lashes, I want thick, covered, full looking lashes. So, still not 100% sold on this pretty green tube yet. But, that was until I stepped back after only two applications and thought “my gosh, my lashes look so fresh and long and just natural!” So I kept it in my bag and continued to use it and EYE AM IN LOVE! I have received more comments on my lashes in this month with my everyday look than I have in the past with my other favorite mascara.

It does not flake. It does not smear. It does not lose the length it gives your lashes (even when one sleeps with ones eye mask).

Another bonus I learned…
I have a weird habit of pulling at my lashes, I know it’s bad, but sometimes it just feels like one needs to get out of there. I know I am not alone b/c I have asked and it makes sense to a handful of people, lol.
ANYWAY, when I went to pull at my lashes, it stretched like rubber before coming off! And it didn’t even pull my lash out! This stuff forms like a tubular “something” around the lashes and that is why it holds up so amazing! That is also why when I wash it off it looks like I attacked a small spider on my face and won. It just comes right off, in its satisfying tubular like shapes.
So… all of that to tell you that I have a new favorite mascara on my list! And you all need to give it a try.
Here’s $10 off your first order if you want to go grab some.
Let me know below in the comments if you have tried this brand and what else is a must try.

Today is….

First I would like to say, “hello there stranger!!!”, to myself! Man, it has been a hot, hot minute since I last punched these keys. But!!!! I am here and that is all that matters, right? 😉
So, today is the best day ever! Why??? Well, besides the fact that y’all are getting to finally hear from me again, duh, but it is the day I was born. I won’t tell you how long ago, but it was not recent for sure, lol.   It’s MY BIRTHDAY!!!!  
Usually days leading up to your birthday you get the repeated question “what do you want for your birthday?”.  I can never think of things when put on the spot, so I always say, “Oh, just whatever” or the go-to “I don’t need anything”.
So, to help us all be more prepared for when your birthday rolls around, or when you have some extra bucks to spend on yourself, I created this list. You are welcome. 🙂
I wanted to share a few things that make me happy and put a little extra pep in my step.

My Favorite Things from Styled by Mowad




1.   Apple Watch Band

Apple Watch Band –
I get so many compliments on this watch band all the time. I love that I can wear it while working out and when I get dressed up. It goes with so much of the clothing I wear and makes my workout attire look better. But the best part, it’s under $10!

2. iPhone Square Case

iPhone Square Case –
This phone case I first saw on a friend’s phone. It totally confused me b/c of the shape and I was intrigued. “What new phone was this?!” No new phone brand, just a different shape case. So I bought this and get the same reaction from everyone I gave my friend. It even comes with the matching ring holder thingy. (That did take getting used to b/c I had the pop socket before, now I wouldn’t go back to a pop socket.)

3. Graphic Tops

Rocker graphic shirts –
Give me all the vintage, rocker, graphic tees/tanks out there! The more the better. I love to go for an edgier look any chance I get. This huge trend right now makes it sooooo easy. Pair it with some destroyed denim and fun heels and you are good to go! Don’t forget to check out the kids section too. You may be surprised when you fit into the kids XL tee. And while you are roaming out the women’s section, head over to the men’s. Just size down!

4. Hammered Hoop Earrings

Hammered Hoops –
I am going to say it… I have never been a fan of big hoop earrings. They always reminded of the Bon Qui Qui skit. But someone call “sa-curity” b/c I wear these Stella & Dot hoops on the daily!!! They are so light weight I forget I even have them in my ears. They go with every outfit and every hair style. THEY ARE A MUST!!!

5. Diamond Initial Necklace


Diamond Covet Pave Initial Necklace –

I want you to know I NEVER TAKE THIS OFF! Unless the doctor or nurse tell me to, I do not. I workout in it, I sleep in it, I shower in it, I go to the beach in it, I go to the pool in it. I never take it off. It is hands down the best necklace I have and layers beautifully with everything.

6. Stella Stacks Bracelet


Stella Stacks Bracelets –   ***USE CODE TEN10 FOR 10% OFF***
If you have to get one thing from this list, this is it. I found this maker on Instagram a few years ago when I saw one of her bracelets with the large coin and fringe. I had to have it. The quality, communication, and service was so amazing I quickly became a huge fan and now have more than I can wear. Check her out and use my code to get 10% off. You will not be sorry!

7. Dipped Nails


Dipped Nails – View my Pinterest Board of all my favorite looks 
Do I have to explain why this is a favorite? Having strong durable nails that the color doesn’t chip away after the first day is just perfect. I love changing out color combos and it just makes my hands look better.

8. KanCan Jeans


KanCan Jeans – 
These jeans I found years ago and it is seriously the only brand in my closet! They fit my curves perfectly, the pockets sit on the booty in just the right place to make that peach look good, and the designs are so trendy and on point. If you haven’t tried a pair, you are seriously missing out.

9. Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime 3-month gift –
I know this one seems silly, but I love having Amazon Prime! Prime is not only about ordering from Amazon and getting it faster. You can instantly watch thousands of movies and TV episodes, Borrow Kindle books, and Get unlimited FREE two-day shipping (no minimum order size). Plus there is a Prime Day coming up and who doesn’t like to be a VIP in a members only Day???

That is just a few of my favorite things. Pretty much everything I don’t leave the house without.
