100 Layers Challenge - Have You Heard of the Challenge?

There's a channel on YouTube called Simply Nailogical- she does nail art tutorials.  She posted a video a little while ago of her applying over 100 coats of nail polish to her hand and issued a challenge for people to do better.

And the YouTube community went crazy.  250+ coats of nail polish, and then it spread to the rest of the beauty community-100 coats of mascara, foundation, blush, liquid lipstick, false eyelashes.....and I thought it would be fun to bring some of that game to the culinary community.

This is by far my most popular video so far on my new crafting and cooking channel!  Check it out :D

Awesome Possum Product Reviews :)

It's been a while since I shared some product review goodies with you guys.  I've got 4 awesome things for you that touch on a few of my hobbies :)


The first item I wanted to share was this cool Dino Trivia Game.  I changed the rules a bit to make it more my style, but I had fun playing it with my brother and his wife and kids.  I feel like it's maybe better suited for teachers than the average household. 


Next up-Nail Decals.  I have had fun with these.  I've been inspired by a nail art channel on YouTube and wanted to give it a go (I'll talk more about that in a post soon, possibly tomorrow.)  I'm definitely not an expert, but I've had some pretty cute nails because of these lately :)


Next up-this Selfie Right Light.  I recently got a microphone for my cell phone and now with this, I'm all set up for better pictures and video on my cell for my YouTube channels :)


Last but not least, another hobby is our container garden.  It's pretty small this year but we're also in a new place where we don't have automatic spinklers so we have to balance the hoses and sprinklers and drip lines with the grass too.  I recently got this kit to help with that!

Where to find an Affordable Modest Dress!

I was a bridesmaid just about a month ago (wow time flies!) and we were having a bit of a dilemma finding bridesmaid dresses that everyone wanted to wear.  A big thing for all of us gals was modesty-covering up a bit to be comfortable and to match our religious commitments. 

Finding bridesmaids dresses that aren't short and revealing is 1) ridiculously hard and 2) expensive.  As we were helping the bride look for options, I was literally looking online for Mother of the Bride dresses because I knew that more of them would be modest.  Some were still more revealing than we'd want and those that covered up were either limited in options or "mature and maternal".....let's just put it that way.....

The bride stumbled upon a website none of us had heard about before, it's called  We were so impressed with the selection they had-different cuts, styles, colors, sizes, lengths etc.  They'll make something custom if you need.  I wish I had my bridesmaids order from there when I got married!

Anyway, I did a short video going over my experience-the good and bad.  This is definitely a dress I'll be wearing again and just wanted to share that resource with those that might be in the market :) 

You can check out my video review HERE and the dress website HERE.
