Why Most People Don’t Know How To Use Eye Cream

Why Most People Don’t Know How To Use Eye Cream

  So I was kinda shocked when a few people I sold eye cream to, told me they had never used eye cream before – and they were in their 50s!  I started using it in college!  Well, a few of the eye cream virgins woke up with red irritated eyes that were puffy.  Turned out they were practically putting the eye cream in (or too close to) their eye!  So, I feel the need to help educate on how...

Officer Down

Officer Down

Today is Sunday, May 24, 2015. The weather is overcast and cool, and it’s definitely one of those days where the video games will get a lot of use…. Funny thing – this was also the case exactly one week ago. May 17, 2015. It was overcast and cool, and a Sunday much like so many others. The kids were playing downstairs, and I was hiding out in my room for a few minutes just to clear my mind before ... Read More »

There’s a First Time for Everything!

Getting to this very moment has been an incredibly interesting journey and I can’t even express how ecstatic I am to be writing my very first WIRL! Seeing my vision and dream become an actual “thing” is more motivating and surreal than I ever thought it would be. I can’t wait to share what it was really like to create and build a business and website; I learned so much and ... Read More »

My Introduction to WIRL

Hello my name is Michele Barrett. I have been a stay at home mom for the past 9 years with 3 children, ages ranging  from 4-9 years old. I always had  a vision of owning a small business one day. I decided to take a leap of faith this new year and I started my own decorating business. I always felt I wanted a little something I could call “my own” especially when you are a mom and you ...

Being a Work at Home Mom

If my 14 year old wouldn’t kill me, I would take a picture to show you what is happening right now in our house. But first, let’s rewind just a bit… Yesterday when I picked my daughter up from school she was coughing, her nose was running, and she had a sore throat. So we stopped at the store on the way home to pick up the essentials.. medicine, kleenexes, cough drops, and juice.... Read More »

You’re Sinking Without a Desire to Swim

You’re Sinking Without a Desire to Swim

At least one person in your life has probably told you that you cannot fix the broken.  That no matter how hard you try, if someone doesn’t want to be fixed; they won’t be. A lot of us also consider ourselves to be “Fixer uppers.” By that I mean we will date some people with seemingly more issues than us, just to feel better about ourselves… Or maybe you are the oppos...

Infertility – 1 Samuel 1:27

Infertility – 1 Samuel 1:27

A little over a year ago, my husband and I shared this video with our family and friends. For anyone struggling with infertility, please don’t give up. It’s worth it all. I’m hesitant to post this because I’ve been on the other side – constantly seeing success stories while I was still waiting for mine. But I want to encourage people to keep fighting the good fight. T... Read More »

Perfect Start to the Day and Breakfast of Champions

Perfect Start to the Day and Breakfast of Champions

For the past two plus years, I’ve started my day by pleasantly waking up to Daft Punk’s Lose Yourself to Dance which quite possibly could be the best wake-up call ever. No more jolting awake to some terrible repetitive beeping sound. This tune starts slowly and quietly, and builds up into an awesome catchy beat. Definitely check it out. https://youtu.be/NF-kLy44Hls Then I typically scr... Read More »
