Fine Lines....? Puffy Eyes....? Dark Circles...? No problem!!!

I'm baaaaaack.....well at least until life gets crazy hectic again. The last year and a half of my life has been so totally busy that I feel a bit dizzy when I think about it. I finally completed my mild to moderate special education teaching credential program AND completed the course work and thesis project for my masters in education! Ahhhh! Yes! I am very proud of my accomplishments but now I am on the lookout for a teaching position. But in the meantime, I will be happy to be blogging again about some of my favorite things....

I have been on vacation for a week and a half now. I have spent four days in San Francisco, spent some time at the beach, gone to a car show, organized and cleaned my house,taken my kids to the pool several days in a row, and in the meantime applied for twelve different teaching positions. I got two calls back. One for a telephone interview in which I did in my pj's and one regular face to face panel interview. You would think that I would be all rested up and looking my best with all this time off but NOPE--I jam my days full and have trouble falling asleep at night and unfortunately my brain is programmed to wake up at 6:30 A.M. even though I can sleep in....ugh!

Anyway, my face to face interview was this afternoon and I was freaking out just a bit because I was up late last night at the Angels vs. Dodgers baseball game, eating my nachos, drinking my beer, and getting a great session of people watching in. By the time I got home and to bed the wee hours of the morning had snuck up on me and I had to get some sleep! I woke up a few hours later and looked like hell! I showered, had my coffee, and I was still looking horrible. Then I remembered that I had a Collagen-Fibre Eye Pad Kit that I had already used once and was amazed with the results.

This kit is pretty cool. It comes with four eye pads that are contoured to fit right under your eyes. These pads are made of collagen fibre and infused with Myoxinol which is extracted from hibiscus flowers that helps relax the tissue under our eyes giving a smoother appearance. Who needs botox these days with such amazing products like this one? So, I put the eye pads on and then apply the skin energizing gel to moisten the collagen pad. This helps contour the pads under the eyes and provides optimal results by reducing the puffiness and dark circles from lack of sleep and proper water consumption. Fifteen minutes later I took the eye pads off and honestly, the results are terrific. I looked like I was completely rested. My makeup went on flawless and I walked into my interview feeling confident and knowing that I looked my best. Well almost confident--I was a little nervous that my duct tapped hemmed pants would come undone--but that's another story.
