They're gonna put me in the movies...

Several years ago we sold our old ,but in immaculate shape, 79 Volare wagon to Ragtop Picture Cars. A business that supplies cars for movies, videos, etc. We always joked that we would see her in the movies.

Tonight my ex-husband called and asked if I had seen the video for It's a helluva ride by Frankie Ballard. I honestly hadn't so he told me to go watch it and pay attention to the car at the gas station. Well sure enough there was a car that looked identical to her. I wasn't completely sold because well there has to be a few of them left around right?? I asked him how he knew and he said it's the gas cap. When we bought her she didn't have one so I had to buy one. It was shiny and silver. I had to replace that thing three times from people stealing it! The video shows the little girl helping put it back on.

I still wasn't convinced so I emailed the guy we sold it to. It wasn't long before I got this response:

HI Susan
Great to hear from you. I do still have the Volare wagon and it is running and driving great. I get it a out and drive it every now and then. Still looks the same as it did when I bought it from you except I put a grill in it.. YES, that is the same car in the Frankie Ballard video. Here are a couple behind the scenes shots from the video shoot and some pictures the way it still looks.. I have used it in a couple other much smaller film projects but this video is by far the biggest  thing it has done. Hopefully some things will come up where I can use it again. Once again I appreciate you selling it to me.. David

I was so surprised to hear back and that it was in fact our car! These are the pictures he sent me:

It's nice to know the old girl got her ten minutes of fame :)

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!

2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.

3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
