Black Friday Shopping

Woo Hoo! It’s Friday! Not just any Friday this week but the Friday after thanksgiving! That makes it Black Friday! A day for shopping! The “official” kickoff to the holiday shopping season! Oh and let’s not forget stuffing ourselves with those yummy leftovers….

Are you a Black Friday shopper? Are you Thanksgiving night shopper? Did you clear away your Thanksgiving day feast and hit the stores last night? No judgment, just wondering.

I hope you had a great day with family and friends. We had a quiet relaxing day of sorts. That’s because we aren’t having our “traditional” Thanksgiving dinner until Sunday. That means I’ll be going crazy the rest of the weekend, lol!

I have never been much of a Black Friday shopper. Watching the news and seeing people go crazy and attacking others over saving a couple of dollars was enough to keep me home! I said long ago there was nothing out there worth risking your life over! That’s not to say I have never been out and about, and the few times I have stood in line for something it was a good experience. I know some of the stories are the extreme and not the norm, but boy are they scary!

“The Man” took off work one year just so we could go shopping on Black Friday! I don’t think he believed how crazy it was out there, until we got to the toy store and the line was wrapped three times around the park lot at midnight-ish! After standing there for what seemed like forever, he gave up, lol!!! We wandered through a few more stores that were open and came home and went to bed. Later we got up to get to Barnes and Noble before they opened. That year they offered a special edition nook e-reader for $79 . That was my present to me. I had made the jump to e-readers before that with the nook color, but after some time realized a regular reader would be better for reading while traveling in the car. I have since switched to the nook glow light…..speaking of which a new edition the nook glow 3 is being released today and is only $99! If you are an e-reader person that might be for you! That year was “The Mans” first and last foray into Black Friday shopping! He is now okay with going to work, lol!

I’m perfectly ok staying home and shopping online! I know there are some crazy good deals out there, my inbox has been flooded with them, and I bet your is too! Here is one of my favorites.

I just got off the phone with “The Man” a few minutes ago and he said “I’m surprised you don’t want to go to the “black store”” as  he calls it. Well, now the you mentioned it, we could go……lol! I probably will not. I don’t “need” or want anything so why go?

Last night going out wasn’t an option for me. The only vehicle I could have taken was “the bus”, it can be a challenge to park on a regular shopping day, there was no way I was going to try and park and maneuver that thing around parking lots full of crazy shoppers 😂😂

To help you out with your shopping I have a few deals of my own to share with you.

PLUNDER DESIGN: Plunder will have a lot of Black Friday specials throughout the day. The savings are really great but there is a catch. The specials will be released at different times throughout the day and no one knows when they will release. What I do know it that nothing will be released today before 9am EST! Here is a sneak peek at what I know will be coming out today. There could possibly be more throughout the weekend and Monday.

I will be posting to the Facebook page when they are released. Just go to http://plunderdesign.com/grandma2glamma, hit the shop button and pick a party that has my name in it. These items will be found under the Specials tab.

Below are a few items that were released yesterday and as of right now are still available.

I just love this one for the tweens/teens. What a great stocking stuffer!

In addition to such great specials. If your order totals $30 or more (excluding tax and shipping) you can choose to add one of the items below for every $30 you spend. You would pay $10 for the Tony necklace and $5 for the Lilo earrings. This is while supplies last (of course). These have changed a couple of times this month. So don’t be surprised if you go to check out and your offer is different.

Legging Army: There is a site wide 10% discount. That will apply all weekend. Who doesn’t  love or need leggings?

Rodan+Fields: You can’t get much better than this deal. Today only, make a purchase as a Preferred Customer (PC) and you pay what I pay!!! That means any product OR Any Business Kit if you decide to become a consultant. Just go to http://jearlingbencivenni.myrandf.comTo become a PC just scroll down to the Subscribe and Save option. If you are interested in the business then message me and we will hop on the phone and chat.

Happy Shopping!

I Have Lashes

What a week! The littles were off the charts this week. I wonder if it was the full moon? Someone mentioned the lunar eclipse that's coming. Does that affect moods and such too? The baby wasn't even her usual sunshiny self!

I realized on Wednesday that the start of Yoga Teacher Training was only a month away! Yikes! Life is about to get busier yet! Before we know it the holidays will be here….

We will be off to Lancaster, Pennsylvania shortly to shop the outlets for back to school clothes for Noah and Miss Quinn. First I am going to attend my usual meeting of the #saturday7amsocialclub.

My friend Rosie from The Midlife Aesthetic posted a challenge (?) yesterday on Facebook and Instagram. Her challenge was to sit down and plan a "you" weekend. Nothing but you and what you want to do! Wow! I wish we hadn't already planned our weekend. This will be on my list to do, though. If you haven't read Rosie's blog you should check it out. What is your ideal "you" weekend? What would you do, just for you, if you could?

A few weeks ago I told you I had signed on with Rodan+Fields and shared my beginning experience with using Lash Boost. Today I am sharing my results so far. Yesterday was four weeks in.

As you can see my lashes are getting longer and thicker. You can actually see my bottom lashes! I even put mascara on the bottom yesterday! I have never been able to do that!

The picture below is from day one.

The area circled is an actual bald spot in my lashes.

This next picture was yesterday morning.

You can see there are lashes growing in the bald spot, you can see bottom lashes in general! Look how much thicker the top is too!

Below is with mascara on the bottom. I only use one coat of mascara, ever.

My selfies still look like mug shots, lol, but there are lashes on the bottom that I can put mascara on and not accentuate that bald spot (it's on its way out)! My left eye still has to catch up with the right but it's on its way! If you have thin, sparse lashes you really need to try Lash Boost. It typically takes 6-8 weeks to see results.

I have also been using the Redefine regimen. My "eleven" lines (the lines on your forehead, between your eyes) have diminished considerably and my skin overall is tighter! Ladies (and gentlemen) these products do work! If you've been thinking about trying them, don't hesitate. With a 60 day money back guarantee you have nothing to lose. If you don't know where to start go to my website and take the solutions tool. That will help you determine the regimen that's right for you.

It may seem as if I've been talking a lot about Rodan+Fields lately. Maybe. I am becoming more and more passionate about the products and opportunity. This is the first product that I have been able to use a night cream from and not break out!

We all have skin and are aging and so is every one we know. That isn't going to change. Everyone needs good skin care!

If you've been thinking about signing up as a consultant this weekend is a great time. The business is growing and great things are happening. If you decide to join me this weekend you will receive three of the new travel size Redefine regimens and a Lash Boost with the purchase of a kit. To become a consultant go to http://jearlingbencivenni.myrandf.biz and sign up. This is only good through tomorrow night.


Lash Boost is currently sold out. I can't even buy a new supply right now😲and I don't plan to be without it! If you only want Lash Boost send me a message and get on my VIP list. I will let you know when it's back in stock. We are hoping by mid month, which is almost here!

There are three ways to order.

If you just want to try the products and not commit, you can order as a retail customer. That's the most expensive way. Next Friday 8/18  I will be placing a bulk order; if there is a product you would like to try message or email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com and I will order it for you at my cost and ship it to you.

Not Going Down Without a Fight

I started my new skin care regimen

I hope y’all had a great weekend! Last week was crazy here! Add to that the heat. It was wicked! The weekend wasn’t any better! This is the longest stretch of incessant heat I remember in a while. We get a day or two here and there but this has been couple week stretch with no break. When I woke up Saturday morning at 5:30, to go to the #saturday7amsocialclub AKA WW, it was 84 degrees out. It was really too hot to be out, last week, if you didn’t need to be. I’m not sure what, if anything, I even accomplished last week. Do you ever those weeks? The only thing we did over the weekend was grocery shopping and went out to dinner Saturday night.

This week is still hot, but the temps are back in a “normal” range.

I did survive a FULL week with the “babies” back (the first week back they were only here for three days) AND they survived too, I guess that’s something, lol! It’s the little things!

I started my new skin care routine on Friday, July 14th. Do you have a “regular” or “specific” skin care regimen that you follow? Tell us about it. Last month I told you about my “make-over” here and that I was thinking of trying “Lash Boost” from Rodan + Fields. There was such a great special and sign on incentive that I couldn’t pass it up.

Here is a selfie I took on Friday the 14th before I used the products for the first time. No make up, just “me”! Ok, I don’t “do make up” a lot, so you might see “just me” more often than not. Sometimes it’s because I “fiddle around” too much in the morning and don’t have time to put it on, lol!

This was at night. Since the product arrived that day, I was excited to get started and used them right away! After taking the “Solutions Tool” I chose the Redefine regimen to accompany my Lash Boost. You can certainly just buy Lash Boost if that is what you want. Last month there was an extra discount for purchasing a regimen and Lash Boost together. I’m about saving as much as possible, so of course I did that!

As you can see my bottom lashes are practically non-existent.

I’m not going to win any selfie awards, for sure, lol!

Below is the morning of Friday, July 21st, the end of week 1. I want to think I see some difference in my lashes but I really think it’s too soon to really tell!

This may be a little easier for comparison.

I do believe I see some firming of my skin, which is a little surprising. I thought my skin was pretty toned/firmed. I have long tried to “take care” of my skin. I have had a habit (?) of switching out products for summer and winter. It seems my skin has different needs in different seasons. Do you find that? That’s a good thing with Rodan+Fields, there are different regimens to choose from, so it will be easy to change, if I need to, and still use the same line.

Are you a current Rodan+Fields customer? If so, please share your results. Are you new to Rodan+Fields. is this the first you’ve heard of the company and line? They are not a super new company, the skin care line has been around for a few years. Rodan+Fields was developed by the same dermatologists that developed the acne line ProActiv. I know everyone has heard of that! It has only been the past few years that R+F has become a home based business.

With the results I’ve seen from others using Lash Boost, I’m confident this will work and I’m so excited to see my “new lashes” that I’m going to share the journey with you each week. Some people see results in a few weeks, but realistically it can take a couple of months.

Have you seen or heard of Rodan+Fields, but weren’t sure how to purchase or get started? There are three ways to get started.

Are you a traveler? Just last week we released these adorable travel size, TSA approved versions of R+F regimens.

You can get them free right now by ordering your favorite full-sized regimen along with an Active Hydration Serum! To sweeten the deal, since today is July 25th. let’s have a “Christmas in July” special!!!

if you sign up as a PC from now through the end of July, I will personally reimburse you your sign-up fee of $19.95! That’s right, I’ll mail you a check for your $19.95 back. So not only  will you get a product discount of 10% off all products and free shipping; you will get your sign up fee back! The only thing better than that would be to become a consultant and save 25%!

Don’t know what regimen is right for you? Just go to my website and click “take the solutions tool”. That will take you through a series of questions and recommend the regimen you need. R+F offers a 60 day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose! If you have any questions or need help sighing up, email me at grandma2glamma@gmail.com. I’ll be happy to walk you through the process. Interested in becoming a consultant but aren’t sure if this is right for you? And it isn’t for everyone, there is a Zoom opportunity call every Wednesday night at 9pm EST (Zoom is a free app that you can download to your phone or computer) then hit “join a meeting” and put in 736 578 7052. There is no obligation and you can “hide” and remain anonymous. If you are even slightly interested in making a few extra bucks, maybe eventually quitting your current job to stay home with your littles, or just retire; hop on the call and see if this is right for you! Of course if you just want great skin care to help fight the signs of aging, you can still hop on the call or just order.

Do you have other friends who are in the direct sales business? You know Avon, Tupperware, Lipsense, etc? If so, do you support them and like/love their posts on Facebook and such? If not, please start. You can like, comment, and share (just like with the blog). You don’t have to buy a thing, it doesn’t cost a dime, and someone you know may be interested. I have many friends who sell various products, that may not be for me but you never know who may be looking for just that product. Who would you rather your other friends buy  from a stranger or a mutual friend? So please support your friends!

Do you want to be the first to know about my escapades? Just sign up for the blog email with the subscribe button at the top right side of the page or on the “pop-up”. I will not share your email with anyone else (that would be mean) you will just be the first to know when there is a new post.
