If you’ve read the review of my experience with a Lash Lift & Tint, you’ll know why I’m addicted! If you use a good lash serum that works (as I do), there’s really not too much need for expensive and high-maintenance lash extensions! I get a lash lift and tint at B-Lashed Beauty & Bridal Bar about every 2-3 month! Interested? If you live in the Dallas, area, call the salon at 817-881-2009 to schedule yours.

Oh, hooray! 😀 I think we’ve found it, y’all. Really. I think we’ve found the holy grail of cereal. Catalina Crunch makes cereals that are:
- Low Carb
- Contain no artificial ingredients
How do they do it? With a blend of seven plant proteins and fibers. (The fiber keeps you full longer! 👍) If you order, I highly recommend you get the variety pack the first time so you can try several flavors! You’ll get four 9 oz. pouches—one of each flavor of cereal they make. (Dark Chocolate, Honey Graham, Cinnamon Toast, and Maple Waffle. 😋) This discovery has me so giddy 💃 that I reached out to the company, and I managed to score an exclusive discount code just for Empty Nest Blessed readers! Use the code EMPTYNEST_10 at checkout for 10% off your entire purchase! (All orders ship free.) For more information, click HERE. #ifeellikeakidagain
City Beauty is one of my favorite beauty companies and I especially believe in their lip products! Did you read my Tips for Aging Lips post? In it, we tackled issues that plague midlife women’s lips—like dryness, lines, and thinning. My new favorite color in their line of plumping lip glosses is called “Sun Diego.” It’s a warm-toned pink gloss with a slight golden sheen. It’s beautiful! I wore it at the Makeup-Over-Fifty Class and got so many compliments! My complexion has warm undertones, but if you have cool undertones, check out the shade called “Los Angelips.” (Also, if you’re not sure if your complexion has warm or cool undertones, I told you how to figure it out in this post.)
I also love City Lips matte plumpers. There’s no burning with City Lips lip plumpers! Their matte colors stay put and won’t bleed into lines and wrinkles, but they never dry out my lips! Lately, I’ve loved a shade called Rosewood. It’s versatile because it can look pinkish or more coral, depending on what you wear with it!
An Empty Nest Blessed follower recommended Dazzle Dry to me when she heard that I was DIYing my own nails! She takes Dazzle Dry’s nail system to her nail tech and has hers professionally done, but she said I could easily do my own at home too! She told me that her nails had never been as healthy as they were right now!
After such a glowing recommendation and some in-depth research on the Dazzle Dry website, I reached out to the company. They sent me this starter kit, and I’ve never looked back! Since then, I’ve bought lots of nail laquer from Dazzle Dry, and I have to tell you…that smart Empty Nest Blessed follower was absolutely right!
Created by a biochemist and a natural nail care specialist with over 20 years of experience, the Dazzle Dry system is both nontoxic and hypoallergenic, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. Dazzle Dry is a vegan nail care system that dries in just five minutes and lasts up to two weeks. It applies and removes like a traditional polish, delivers the performance of a gel polish without the need for UV light, and strengthens natural nails in the process.
I’ve been using it for three months now, and I absolutely love it. My nails have never been healthier! Typically, my manicures last for about a week. (But keep in mind that I work on the computer for my job, so my nails take a beating!). The Empty Nest Blessed follower who recommended Dazzle Dry to me (I will be forever grateful!) says that her manicures routinely last ten days to two weeks, depending on how much her hands are exposed to water.
