Mascara Love


**Quick post on my new favorite Mascara. I have tried many different mascara's but I have never been so in love with a mascara before. Lots of times if the mascara runs or gets into my eyes it will sting and prevent me from driving safely.  Maybelline Volume Express THE Falsies Mascara is amazing. Every time I use it, it gives me the look that I have super long and beautiful looking eye lashes. With the drug store price it is and easy choice to try this out and see if its for you! I buy a couple at a time now just so I can have one in my purse and one in my makeup bag :) The link below will take you to amazon so you can buy your own and try it out.**

People Water Review!


So after finding out about People Water a year or so ago I wanted to try it and review it. I have only had a blog for a few months now and I decided it was time to try the water. I have had the water in my fridge for 3 months. I opened it and took a swig. It went down smooth, there wasn't a bad after taste like you can get from some waters. I have always had trouble drinking enough water each day, but I believe if I have people water I could stay hydrated every single day. So the taste is nice and clean.
Besides the fact that it tastes great, I have found that People Water gives back to those in need in many ways. If you purchase a bottle of People Water the equal amount of water bought goes to someone in need. The water can be a little more pricey then the cheap brands, but if you can spare a little extra for water just think of all the help you are sending to those who don't have any clean drinking water. You can check the links below and read the entire story about People Water, or buy some cases and enjoy for a long time. I will also be giving away this 16.9 fl Oz bottle with burlap case to one lucky blog follower in an upcoming giveaway happening Soon!
Thanks,  & Stay Hydrated :)

Christmas Gift Wishes for All


So I thought it would be fun to put up some Christmas ideas for everyone and give some ideas on what people can buy. Right now I am starting out with:

1.  Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish. These colors are so beautiful. One is a little more subtile with pink and flesh undertones, and the other is a fire Hot pinky orange. Such a great friend, sister, wife and mom gift. I will be putting links at bottom of this blog so you can check them 

2. Is a nice little stocking stuffer for ANYONE. Carmex Lip balm in "Pomegranate" helps moisturize in the winter time. It has a nice fresh smell to it, and is smooth. With most lip balms beware, because you will get addicted and find yourself re-applying alot :)
Cabbage Patch Cuties

3. Third cute Gift Idea are the "Cabbage Patch Cuties". Many of us has grown up with these dolls, and these new CUTIES are so precious. I believe the age kids will like this goes from 1.5 years old to about 13 years old.. PLUS if you know adults like me that love cute things like these or likes to collect dolls this is a great gift idea! Better hurry these little things are selling out quick. I also have a link below to check these out. 

4.  If your man or women, mom or dad, brother or sister likes a good cup of coffee or hot cocoa on the go, they will love these mugs. Great for a drive to work, or if you work outside or long hours and you want your drink to stay warm for a few hours this is the way to go. Some of the mugs can also keep your soup warm. Lots of colors and sizes to choose from.

5. This Victoria's Secret robe is an early gift I bought myself this year and I couldn't be happier. It is so soft, but the material inside is just like a towel so it absorbs and dries you off quickly. Your Mom, Wife, sister or any lady in your life would love this gift and would never want to get out of it. 

6.  I fell in love with this Elmo. One of the cuter Elmo dolls I have seen in the last few years. Fun gift for the little ones. You tickle his tummy or press his feet and listen to him make fun noises and silly jokes! The fishbowl makes a squeaky noise as well. These also might be collectibles very soon so don't wait to long to pick one up, or buy one from the link I will post below. 

Ok this is it for the gift ideas today! I will be back in a couple days to add some more fun gift ideas. Make sure to check the links below and buy some of the gifts you love.  Make sure to follow this blog and go LIKE the Outdoors Gal's facebook page to enter yourself in the giveaway.

Merry Christmas Everyone

Blood Warmers

                                    Blood Warmers

Hello everyone.. Sorry it has been so long, but I have been a little off the grid since I got my knee surgery. I am very excited to tell you about my new review today. I tried out a product called Blood Warmers and I fell in love with it. Basically it is a wristband looking item that you strap about your wrist and put the disposable warmers into and it warms you up completely. Since you are putting it on right on your pulse it works to warm you up faster, and it keeps you warm. In the past if you needed to use the disposable warmers you would have to either stick it in your glove with you and it would burn or get to hot, or you would have to hold the warmer the entire time. With this new to the scene invention it makes so many things possible. You could go fishing and still keep your hands free and warm with Blood Warmers, Snowmobiling, Skiing, Hunting, Snowboarding and so much more is possible. Even if your not into sports and you just have a wife or daughter that always seems to be cold then you could use this product to keep them warm. When I was testing it I didn't want to take it off because it kept me so cozy. An awesome part about the wrist Blood Warmers is you can use them over and over again. The quality is awesome and they are all made in the USA! :)  I will put a couple links below so you can go check out there website and facebook. These would be a Perfect stocking stuffer for anyone in your household. I have a certain hubby fisherman/ and boarder that will be getting these for Christmas and I will be buying an extra set for myself ~ Thanks all. I hope you have a great day/night and weekend. Be safe out there.

Some of My Favorites :)

                                                        Some of My Favorites :)

I am starting off today with the: Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color. These colors can sure pack a punch. I found these to be very creamy and they glide on so easily. The colors last a long time, so make sure to test them out a night or so before you want to use them. The colors Crush, and Fruit Punch are both Very colorful and glamorous a big night on the town is the only time I would wear those colors. My favorite color of the bunch is Love Child. I found it to be a very deep pretty pink that can suit any situations. 
Thanks all and make sure to comment with any questions or any concerns. Make sure to join my blog for some fun reviews on beauty and outdoors. Lots of How To's coming soon! :)

My love for Harley Davidson

                                                         My love for Harley Davidson
Hey there everyone~ Today I just wanted to share my love of Harley Davidson Accessories! It is true I do not own a bike and I am sure I never will, BUT I seriously love all the Harley Decor, Accessories and ETC.
My favorite purchase at Harley Store is my ring. I have bought 3 total Harley rings in the past. Due to the fact that my hands shrink in the winter I lost two of the rings so on this third ring I made sure it was a snug fit. I have also owned hats, pens, pins, scarves, shot glasses, t-shirts, boots and etc. Harley makes quality products so they are meant to last! Make sure to check them out and see for yourself how many wonderful products they have :)

Thanks for reading! Have an awesome day:)

My husband and I have got so many wonderful memories out of these boats already. They move around so nicely, and the boats with out the huge metal frames can be picked up and moved by anyone over the age of 16(including They are so worth the money you spend. His policy's make it so you will Never regret buying the boat. Even if you are looking to buy one for your wife(or husband) so they can sit in the water and enjoy a little reading.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Review!

I seen these in the store a few weeks ago and thought I would try some out. There are Many cute selections so you can easily pick out your style. In the box you can find a cuticle stick, nail file(buffer) and 16 nail strips.

So first off do not, I repeat DO NOT try to apply these if you are in a hurry. I found these to be such a pain to apply. The nail file they have in the box never seemed to work right. When I would take the nail polish off of the backing it would never pull off easily and would get so many rough edges that never seemed to file off correctly. I did however manage to use one nail strip on two different nails a couple of times so I will be able to use the Salon Effects twice instead of once. Honestly the only two reasons I would buy these again is because there are so many selections to choose from, and it is nice to have fancy nails from time to time. If you decide you want to try them out I will put a link below where you can go buy them :) 
Good luck and Happy Shopping :)

Starbucks Refreshers


Well it is my turn to talk about the Starbucks Refreshers ! I have seen people post pictures of this so I thought I would give it a shot. I am usually picky when it comes to what I drink. I usually stick to the same things day after day so I was a little hesitant about trying this. The first few sips of this drink I didn't like, BUT after that I was hooked. Some of you might know how refreshing Iced Tea can be on a hot day, and this 'Very Berry Hibiscus' drink felt so refreshing and satisfying it was like I was drinking the iced tea. Who ever came up with the advertising on this did a great job, and was spot on. So if you are looking for a good drink this summer you better run to Starbucks and try it out.. Only downer to the drink is of course the price of the drink! So maybe only try it once or twice this summer and you should be fine :) 

Go Like my page on facebook, and subscribe to this blog and to my twitter for exciting reviews, and how to's on fashion, food, fun, fishing and all outdoors adventures. ALSO, I will be doing Prize Giveaways. The links are below. Thanks for reading, and enjoy your day. Keep Smiling :)

Fishpond Gore Range Tech Pack~

Just wanted to post quickly about an item that saved me for the Horrific hip pack I use to wear while fishing! It is the: FISHPOND GORE RANGE TECH PACK (Cottonwood)...  There is tons of off brand vests that will work great for people, but I wouldn't give up my Fishpond pack for anything. It makes fishing so much more comfortable and convenient then when using the hip packs. Maybe it is a girl thing, but those hip packs drove me Crazy! With the fishpond vest it makes it easy to get new line, fly's, chap stick, sunblock, water, or anything your heart desires. It is pricey for a vest, but in my mind it was totally worth the money. WELL totally worth the money my husband spent, since it was a gift after all :)  SO Fishpond= A+ in my mind ...

                                     ROSE GOLD CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES!!

I don't know about you guys,, but I am LOVING the Rose Gold fashion right now. Displayed is a few items I have purchased recently. The two bracelets are amazing and can go with most anything. I usually pair them with my watch that is in my previous blog. The shoes are from Target and have a little sparkle to them, but they are not overwhelming so I believe any age can get away with wearing them. This top from Oasis is one of my favorite purchases in a Long time. It is a tank top style with a shimmery sparkle front and a see through rose gold color back. Which you could easily add a tank underneath it to make it more wearable. I purchased this top after I seen it on YouTube by FleurDeForce. You still might be able to find it online, and they had Free shipping at the time I bought it. I will be putting up a video on YouTube that shows all my recent purchases, and I will put links below the video so you can find where to buy the items easily!
So if you guys are loving the Rose Gold like me, I would go get some fun accessories quick! Make sure to check out my YouTube also at :
ALSO my Twitter at: and subscribe to both. I will be doing alot more fishing/outdoor product reviews and How to's as soon as my husband gets back in November.
Thanks all! Have a fantastic Day ~

Michael Kors Watch, Women's White Horn Acetate Bracelet

Michael Kors Watch,  White Horn Acetate Bracelet
Michael Kors Women's Chronograph White Horn Acetate Watch
Hello Ladies and Men~  Today I wanted to talk about one of the best purchases I have made in awhile. It is the 'Michael Kors Women's Chronograph White Horn Acetate Bracelet(Watch) 37mm MK5625'. This watch is so much Fun.  It is high on the price scale, but it will be worth every penny with the use you get out of it. I was originally going to get a Rose Gold watch, but this White Horn is so beautiful and can go with virtually everything you wear. From total casual to formal dress. The only time I didn't wear the watch was in Disney Land, and that was just because I didn't want to lose it. I believe most of Michael Kors watches come with a warranty as well. So if you are looking for the perfect accessory that can last a lifetime then for sure check out the Michael Kors watches. I got mine at Macy's, but I have seen them at Nordstom, and Nordstrom Rack as well. Have fun shopping. (FYI Ladies, If your men like watches there are some Hot ones for guys also) 
ALMOST forgot, I will be putting a video up on YouTube soon with the watch in it and I will put a link to a place you can get the watch or take a better look at other watches like it. So go check it out and please subscribe to my blog and YouTube so I can keep you updated :)

Day 1- Healthy Living

Healthy Living Day 1

Hi All~

It is Day 1 of a new adventure in my life. The adventure is to change my outlook on what is good for me and what isn't.  I have made horrible choices when it comes to what food I eat and how much of it I eat. Im starting a blog today so I can try to improve my eating habits and workout habits :) So far I walked on my 15 minute break at work and it at least energized me enough to keep me awake and stay busy at work. Its now lunch time and Im thinking a salad with Chicken from Harmons sounds Great! See you Soon

Well I ended up going to the gym after work and did 60 Minutes of Cardio Jam :) Cooled down and went home to shower and relax for the night.
