It's a very sad time in my home today, on Thrusday my mother in law passed away of cancer. They gave her 6 months to live back in Sept. and she didn't make it the whole 6 months. I am not sure how to feel right now, my husband says he is glad she is gone because it ended her pain. She got to die at home and that was better than the hosptial but still why now? She was finally made peace with her ex-husband who ended up being her caregiver at the end. They were together for 30 years. He made a major mistake but was forgiven by her it was really hard to forgive and forget but she forgave him and that was all that really mattered.
Being Jewish they believe 3 days to being into ground but where she lives that was a impossiblly so she will be laid to rest on Wednesday. Nothing fancy just a pine box, she been telling us for years how she wanted to be buried.

I know its not that hard to find a new one and I know she just wants to make money as much as the rest of us but still...
AT least I know of a different company that will be taking her place.
I am not mad I am just disappointed but she is just a small company trying to cover what she does.
Have a good week everyone!

22 years ago I got married in Henderson to a Air Force man. It is surprising at times that we
are still together but there are things one must do to stay married.
When we decided to get married we laid down a few rules that to this day have never been broked.
1- You don't hit me <--me being the writing this blog. Why you might ask? Because I was someone hitting post growing up and I refuse to marry someone who was going to do it.
1a- if there are children there is no using them for hitting post because you can't hit me.
Both rules NEVER BROKEN!
2- You don't cheat <-- because I have a family member who does and has and I have seen what it does to one's family.
2a- I don't cheat either.
Both rules here NEVER BROKEN!
Can you say that you have made promises that have never been broken? Till I met my husband I could not say that. How sad is that? Then I met this amazing man who after less than a month ask me to marry him. I said yes. He gave me roses and wrote a poem about why each color was important to him and his love for me.
Years later when I called from Lowe's asking him if he minded a pick up a couple of roses for our front yard. I was told to get one of each color he wrote about in his poem. These roses are the brightest ones in my yard! Cheap no brand name roses are growing beautiful in my front reminding me each day of his love.
Yes I married a very romantic man! He hides it well!
I am so glad that for no reason what so ever there has been no need to break either rule. Being married is hard and sure there have been times we have wanted to call it quits but we worked it out.
Happy Anniversary Mike! I Love You and looking forward to another 22 years!!

Now what I mean by that is not all women are home makers anymore, money is just way too tight or there is no one else bring in the money so women need to work. The idea is there is a need to market to those women without insulting their intellect. Now ladies have we not all seen the ads that do just that? Now I work on the computer thats my job, I am at home and I work on the computer and I have seen ads that are so looking down on the fact that I don't work outside the home. Now I have also read that more and more home businesses are created by, you guess it, women who have decided to stay at home raise their kids and still bring in money. Bravo ladies Bravo!
Now a few of the books I am reading have to do with that subject. One book is called Mompreneurs on using the internet to build a home based business. At the end of this I will put all the names of the books I am talking about and who they are by incase you want to read them. I have another one about small business sourcebook. I haven't had time to look it over yet but I got it cause its has information about small business. Do I have any books not having to do with my site, my job me..I count myself as one of the women a lot of advertising is created for marketing. The reason I am reading all these books is a good reason I guess. I started a business and didn't do all the research on marketing, advertising, writing articles etc so I am playing catch up. I don't mind cause I am a very fast reader Thanks Mom! and I can read most of the books I have and have them back before the end of this week and then start looking for more. I have this major thirst for knowledge and I have found that now as I am older it doesn't bother me to read, take notes, find books mostly do all those things that when I was in High School I was too busy trying to get out of. Now a lot of home businesses the women do all this before they even take a business so that no mistakes are made and no money lost.
The problem I have is I am still working on the true niche business that will make me money I just want to do so many things but money is the one thing holding me back so I read. By reading I am finding ways to get things done with little money or none depending and thats good. I have three site ideas I want to do. The one I have done Overallbeauty.com the second one I am working on Giftsandbeauty.com and I want to setup one of eBay. Not asking to do much am I? The work is all me thats why Iam trying to find the best way to do it and for me the best place to find out information is in a book.

One of more important things to do when being someone who sells items online whether it be information or products is branding your name and web site. To find out if your name is getting out there is to look for as a keyword in say Google or Yahoo. So I googled my name.
Well if you look at that link you will find that me as in Overallbeauty doesn't come up till page 2.
If you ever want to find out whats out there with your name in just Google your name.
It seems that there is a Kim Snyder who sings Christian music, voice over in Hollywood,Special Events Assistant, writer and painter, gee I sure that was me but as a web site owner I come up on page 2 at the top one and two only for the reviews I did at Amazon.com when you get to page three there I am as Web Site Owner.
IF you are thinking I am whining about the fact for real I am not because 4 months ago I couldn't find me at all! So this means that I am getting out there under my name. But this also tells me that I can't really use my name yet because I haven't online as a site owner long enough or should I? There is 1,960,000 , I am thinking I am more but in not that much in the top 3 pages that everyone looks at most. Should I push me as me? Or keep going at it as Overallbeauty? If you were in my place what would you do? Have you Googled your name lately?
There are women when they meet someone either offline or at some matching making site, my single mother does this, they google the name of the person just to see. It there is bad news about someone it will run wild on the web, in fact bad new of any type runs fast on the web its just a shame that good news doesn't go as far that fast. Its just one of the ways women who chat with or gets dates is by googling that person's name. Do you? Its one of the ways to try to find out if that person is safe enough to meet. Its hard dating as it is or so I am been told. I can give you the secret to how to stay married but dating Nope I ask mother. My mother been single a long time and dates and finds alot of them on the web cause she does long distance eduction.
Anyway, why not google your name and see what comes up, its just another way to find out about yourself. Do you know you? hahaha

So off I go to visit the oscommerces shopping cart forum the only one there is. And as ususal the fourm doesn't remember my user name only cause I void doing anything with this one. They say that forums are a good place to get help, ideas, business what not, not this forum. In two words, it blows! The ones running it are smarter in oscommerces so I always feel like they are talking down to me. Lord forbid they are wrong cause they are never wrong..Why is that when one needs help with something the compaines send you to forums only to have the ones running forum can't believe you don't know that answer allready and why are you bugging them? Thats how it feels for me, I know I am probably very wrong but this is the only forum I don't like.
I am going to get get myself a new user name and see if maybe this time they might be helpful..
Word to self, :| if you don't like a forum see what you can do to fix on your own or see if there is a different forum for that product.

It's about going to the mall and why as a site owner of beauty why I would go to the mall next to why you or even my sons girlfriend might go to the mall. Come to think of it I think that article is going to be a pretty good one but I don't think I can top my article "Let's Create Sultry Smoky Eyes" you can view it by following the link or by visiting my site either way. Its very good if I don't say so myself!
I am carrying cosmetics from Juicy-Cosmetics and I am so HAPPY I got images I don't think I have seen anywhere else!!! Ok maybe I didn't look hard enough but still I got images that I can't wait to add to the site and show off the products and the images. I have started on my second site and here is the header I will be using..I am creating it myself!!

Anyway I came across this page and thats all it was, one page. Now I seen them before and I know that all they are there is for is to collect my name and email address and when I sign up with enough emails they just might get lucky and I will buy something. Sure whatever I been online long enough to know that game..Now what bothered me and it stills does that this one page was just for Beauty and I wont give the name of it but its was for Free beauty secrets and its going to exposed tips and secrets that I don't already know..Yeah right..
I wont sign up for it cause it bothered me..Why? Cause I can't tell what it is selling me, yeah for real I know it wants my name and email address but it didn't get me to want to know its over 1,000 hot new whatevers..I probably got that many if I really felt like taking the time to write them down. What bothered me is its in my field but its not really selling anything and its doesn't grap me ..when I looked at the url and took off what it had after / in it all it did was redirected me back to the that only page.
What I am saying that unless you really got to know what they are selling or need to have what they are selling don't sign up. All you will get a ton of emails till you unsubcribe yourself or buy. Its always going to be your choice of what you do and where your email address goes..If you really need to know what the beauty site one page that bothers me email me..kimAToverallbeauty.com and I will be more than willing to tell ya..And then I will delete your email address so you don't think I'm saying that just to get your email address. I don't send out emails to those who are signup on my site why would I start with yours..Your choice as always..KIM OUT

Oh this is one of the lastest products I am going to add to my site that I just had to much fun myself playing with!! In Blue, Silver-white, Pink, Gold..
I was told today that I should take my articles and put them into a ebook and either give them away or sell it. Well right now I am just wanting to get them out there, after that then I will start thinking about putting them into a pdf file or something. I need to write way more than just 5 at least I think I have 5..I been adding them to my site as well as putting them into Searchwarp.com which has so many articles its like WOW! I think its trying to get to be number one in that field and that will be hard but I am helping it along by adding articles. I think writing is a way to release feelings, ideas etc and putting them into a article that others would want to read. The latest one is about creating Smoky Eyes..Now who doesn't want to have Smoky Eyes on that one date where you know you are going home with him?? or not..hehehehe

Makeup Tips for an Overdue Makeup Checkup
By Kim Snyder
Makeup tips for an overdue makeup check up, thought it might be hard? It isn't as not as hard as one may think. No one wants to look older
than they really are, so when you get to certain ages, be it late 20's, late 30's, late 40's or older, it's time to do a makeup check up.You
may not realize that your style of makeup is too young for you or too old depending on how you've been doing it. You may be over doing or
under doing your makeup. As our face changes what we once did at one age can be the worst thing to do now. As with skin care there is a need
to change your look to keep looking as beautiful as always but start working on those little issues that are coming up. No need to name them,
we all know what they are.
We all can remember in our teens and twenties choosing makeup on a whim or enjoying bold, shiny eye shadows, (bright blue anyone?) Heavy or
mismatched foundation, not blending it in at the chin or too thick concealer, giving you the opposite raccoon look. How about that obvious
blush in neon pink? Be it on someone's else face or
even your own, who else can remember their mother licking both her thumbs wetting down you cheeks trying to help make your blush less
obvious? Remember how in the earlier years of drugstore brands of blush even that couldn't work, you needed to use major makeup remover?
Try changing from a cream or gel blush. It is better for your face as you get older, as dry blush doesn't blend well as your skin loses the
ability to hold on to moisture,as little lines start to appear around the eyes. Don't forget those nasty smile lines. Keep the blush on your
cheek bones to highlight them if they are one of your best features. Powdered blush tends to cake on skin that is too dry.
How about those overly greasy or super glossy lipsticks, or a Kaleidoscopic array of eye shadows, often mismatched colors as forgetting
certain shades of purple AND lime green do not go together at the same time! We all can get confused on what really looks good on us, in
most cases pastels draw attention to and refresh your eyes, brights make the eyes look vibrant and muted tones softly add color or shape
to the eye while dark colors add dramatic impact. Start experimenting at home with what you have.
Do a checkup on the way you're doing your eye liners, heavy doe eyed look doesn't look good on any age! Heavy outlined eyes just makes
look older, great for teenagers to try out but not someone who is trying to make a impression on a new boss. Its high time you really
should consider making adjustments to one's routine.
Even more examples of what not to do-
The a retro Marilyn Monroe look with the liquid-lined bedroom eyes, and pouty red lips, only she could really pull that look off.
The Crayola Crayon-colored eyeshadows.
Spikey mascara that been in countless fashion magazines and billboards with what looks like only 5 or 6 lashes.
Over the years mascaras have changed from jumping out at you, fake lashes extremes to a more natural look, black-browns, even navy looks
good if not overdone. There are some glitter mascaras that aren't as wild as you might think too so don't forget to at least look at them
for night time use.
It's time to think about changing to a classic, well blended look where no one aspect of your makeup can be more important than the other.
As you create you new look, start thinking of more natural shades of neutral colors
just making sure that they work with your skin tone.
Try wearing only two coats of mascara not three or more.
If blonde try brown or brownish-black
As your hair color darkens, either by age or stopping coloring it, try changing your mascara color to bring out the natural beauty of your
eyes. Not everyone should be wearing black mascara.
There will always be a time and place for all types of free-self expression but one should only leave the house looking as if one is
on the way to a halloween party unless there is a halloween party! As much as you might not like it, overdone makeup or even the smoky-eye
look if not done correctly, just makes you look opposite of the what you are going for.
When we all a certain age regardless of how many years add up, its time to discover a style that makes you feel beautiful, finding colors
that enhances your appearance not take away from it. If you haven't started yet, look up beauty tips or make ups online or go to your local
book store to see whats out there. Even fashion magazines of late are going towards a less is better.
Start practicing blending techniques that makes your eyes look natural not piled or painted on. Praticing to create one's own style and stop
being a slave to whatever the latest look and think before pairing of colors. Even a teenager can have a basic but undone look that enhances
not take away from their natural beauty.
Check out what you have brought over the year and work on designing your own style, one you can call your own, need help try your girl friends,
who better than to tell you what looks good? We all need to stop being a slave to today's "in" look start showing
off the real beauty that may of been hiding behind layers of the so called 'fashionable look'.
Starting with soft neutral colors, blending them, creating a signature look thats easy to put on in the morning for work, add glitter or more
color to for nighttime fun.
Then start throwing out all those colors that makes most teenagers daughters laugh at even the thought you might still be thinking of wearing
it! Start today and tomorrow at work just smile and agree when asked "Have you lost weight?" You may never know even just a change in your
makeup may change you into a whole new person.

I love this blog and writing in here that helps me find the reasons for things by sharing my thoughts, emotions and whatever else I felt like sharing.
If you have been reading this blog on a kinda regular bases I would like to thank you for doing so. I tried to recreate this blog using this amazing template that I found at blogfrocks.com
called cherry blossom dreaming but I don't know how to get it working.Now that really bothered me and if I host this blog say at the website then the url would be wrong. I already have a blog setup on my site and a really great friend of name gave me a few urls for templates for wordpress which is what that uses. You can check that blog out at Overallbeauty.com/beauty-blog
that way I have a blog for my site and havecofee.blogspot.com which was the first one I started.
Yes I am still upset about the fact that I couldn't fix the other one here in I even went for help from the blogger team and got told that the template I got off this site was not a blog they would help cause it was a third party template. Humm BULL I got the blog template from here cause I had no idea how to create or get a different template. That was just so hard to take cause I used the template I found from here and that sudden because a third party template. I am thinking the problem would of been because I did some mods to it to make it my own but still not so many that it would be seen as their template!!
Oh well after a few days this one will be as close as I can get to be like the orginal.
