Hymns and Praise Songs by Sharalee - My Latest Project

Recently, I completed my second CD....

 

This is fully instrumental...just me and my "one-man-band" performing unique arrangements of the following songs:

*Praise Him! Praise Him!
*Shine, Jesus, Shine
*Love Medley (Love Divine, All Loves Excelling; O How He Loves You and Me; My Jesus, I Love Thee)
*What a Friend We Have in Jesus
*How Great Thou Art
*Savior, Like a Shepherd and Knowing You
*Great Is Thy Faithfulness
*Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing
*Medley:  Blessed Assurance and No Other Name
*Amazing Grace
*Medley:  All Creatures of Our God and Shout to the Lord
*Jesus Loves Me (based on Clair de Lune)


Cost: $15 + $5 shipping and handling (rate applies to contiguous U.S.)
*If you purchase more than one CD and have them shipped to one address, you will only be charged one $5 shipping fee

Many of you are probably a little skeptical about how my "one-man-band" sounds and might be curious as to what kind of hymn and praise song arrangements to expect on my CD.  Click on the link below to hear a Sampler of 7 of the songs from my CD (see below).


To purchase a CD, send an email to me at:  sharaleesboxofchocolates@gmail.com
Please include the following information:
*Name and Shipping Address
*Email Address
*Quantity of CDs requested

I will then email you an invoice for you to pay through Paypal.  Upon receipt of payment, I will ship your CD(s) to you and send you a tracking number. 

Thank you in advance for your support of me and this project♥

Neutral Everyday Eye - Most Requested Look!

Several of you requested a tutorial on the eye look I was wearing in the "Sephora Give Me More Lip Swatch Video". So that is what I'm bringing you today! This is a great look for everyday but can easily transition to evening as well just by changing out the lip color.

This eye look is super easy and especially great for those of us with hooded eyes.  I hope you all enjoy this tutorial!

Testing New Hair Products...What Works Best for Styling a Pixie Cut?

If you have watched any of my hair tutorials, you know I'm a pretty die-hard fan of two hair products in particular.....Catwalk Root Boost and Enjoy Dry Wax.

At the request of several viewers, however, I embarked on a journey to see if I could find any other hair products that might compete (or win-out) over my current favorites.  So, over the course of several weeks, I tested three pomades and one root volumizing product and have compiled those reviews into one video.  I hope you enjoy!

New LORAC PRO Palette 4: Review + Swatches + Demo

Are you considering purchasing this latest release from LORAC?  I've been using this palette for a little over a week now and have formed some opinions which I will share with you today.

At the bottom of this post, I've included a review video I posted on my YouTube channel that also includes an eye look using this palette.  So, if you're interested in seeing these shadows in action then definitely check out that video!

Ok, so now it's bullet-point review time....

PACKAGING:
*Sleek and slim with a magnetic closure and large mirror inside
*Rubberized texture which unfortunately gets pretty dirty but I LOVE the plum color they chose!

 *Includes a travel size "Behind the Scenes Eye Primer"


SHADOWS:
*8 Matte and 8 Shimmer Shades
*Colors are more in the "cool" family with more mauve and plum tones
*Matte formula performs great across the board
*Shimmers are a bit mixed for me. 
  • Candelight (as you'll see in the demo) is BEAUTIFUL and shows up super metallic on the eyes with very little effort.  
  • Java and Midnight also have GREAT pigmentation but don't show up very shimmery at all on the eyes (which I actually don't mind).  
  • Iced Rose and Silver Mauve really had to be built up and then I also wet my brush just to get a little more of a sheen to show up on the eyes.
Here are some swatches:

SUMMARY: 
I think this is a really good palette overall and is probably my second favorite of the 4 LORAC Pro palettes.  Even though I usually prefer more of the "warm" toned shadows, "Ginger" and "Amaretto" provide just the right amount of warmth needed for me to pull off the other cooler toned shadows in this palette. The color range is good and you can create some great looks with just this palette.  If it were up to me, though, I would have swapped out the "Soft Pearl" shade for one that is a little more of a "champagne" color to use as an inner corner highlight.  But that's just my preference :-)

ABH Soft Glam Rosy Bronze Tutorial | Viewer Requested

Several of my youtube viewers requested a tutorial on the look I was wearing in my Favorite Nude Lipsticks video and this is it! It's super easy and utilizes one of my favorite palettes, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette.  And, if you aren't crazy about the bright berry lip, you can swap it out for a nude lip or a deeper burgundy/cranberry shade.  I hope you will give this look a try!
