3 Day Sale, 12% Savings!

Affordable Mineral Makeup™ is celebrating three years of sucessful business on Sunday, August 1! I have been proud to serve as your AMM consultant since Novemeber, 2007 and look forward to many more years providing you with quality makeup, free of additives and fillers, all at an affordable price.

What's a birthday without presents? In celebration of this lankmark I'm offering two gifts, and they are both for you! First is our company-wide special 12% discount code, valid three days only, Aug. 1-3 (until midnight EST) to be redeemed at - click on "Shop" near the bottom of the page, add items to your cart, then
use coupon code: 3year
at checkout to receive your discount.

The second present is my personal gift to my faithful customers. When you have made your purchase, come back here and leave me a blog comment with your order number and I'll give you three entries into a drawing for a free makeup bag! :) (Please note, this give-away is sponsored directly by me and is NOT connected to Affordable Mineral Makeup™ as a compnay. It will not do you any good to leave a comment about the makeup bag in the shopping cart comments area when you place your order. In fact, doing so would only complicate the fulfillment of your order as the company would not know what you are talking about.) To enter for the makeup bag you must come back to this blog at ("girls/z" is spelled with a "z" for this blog while spelled with an "s" for my main product page) to leave your comment with your order number.

Want to earn more entries into the drawing and be sure you never miss deals like this again? Here's how to earn up to five more entries!

1. Please follow this blog - and leave me a comment for this action (if you are already following, leave a comment stating so) including the email address associated with your follow. Earn one entry.

2. Follow me on Twitter, username InfertilityMom and leave me a comments with your Twitter ID (even if you are already a follower). Earn one entry.

3. You can also earn entries for posting the following messages or re-tweeting my Twitter posts on this sale at least once per day during the three days of the sale. Leave me a comment with the link to your tweet each day for one entry per day. RT messages:

Visit @InfertilityMom at for 12% Affordable Mineral Makeup discount & enter to win FREE bag. RT!

So now you have a potential of earning up to EIGHT entries into this contest! (three for purchase, one for blog follow, one for Twitter follow, one per daily RT on each of the three days of the sale). I will accept entries through Aug. 4 (so those who order on the 3rd still have time to post order numbers) and will announce a winner by next weekend. Please be sure to leave me a valid contact email address with each entry so I'm able to contact you for mailing address when you win!

10% saving if you email your order

I'm participating in several blogging parties right now and meeting lots of great new friends as a result. What most of us have in commen is that we are women bloggers who either are attending, or in my case would like to be attending (but aren't), a conference called BlogHer this weekend. In honor of this event, I am offering my blog readers 10% off your Affordable Mineral Makeup™ order (discount applies only to products, not tax or applicable shipping) if you email your order directly to me and I receive your Paypal payment by July 29, 2009. To receive the discount, simply mention "BlogHer" in your email and I'll know how you found me. (No, you do not have to be participating in any of the NonBlogHer events to enjoy this discount. It is available to any blog reader who will follow these instructions.) :)

To view available products please visit my page at and select "Shop" near the bottom of the page. You are welcome to place your order directly through the website there, but I will not be able to extend my personal discount to you if you choose to do it that way. If you want the savings, please email me with your name, mailing address and items you wish to purchase (including sizes and if you want makeup in sifter jars or baggies) along with your PayPal address so I can invoice you and receive your payment by July 29. :)

My email address is InnerBeauty AT AffordableMineralMakeup DOT com (changing AT to @ and DOT to . and removing spaces) or if you have any email issues you can also try jsaake AT yahoo DOT com. If you email me, be sure to check your SPAM folder for my reply as some ISPs don't like the AffordableMineralMakeup domain and a few others don't seem to like yahoo either.

If you could also help me out by visiting and leaving a comment on my "Top 10 Reasons I'm Excited to Be Staying Home This Weekend" thread I would really appreciate that. (Note to infertile friends, children are mentioned in that post.) I'm trying to win a $100 cash prize for most blogging comments on that thread. Thank you!

Beauty of Sisterhood

I came across a delightful post this week. It's much more about inner beauty than outward beauty, but I wanted to share it with you all because it made me reflect on the many beautiful friends/sister I have made through the internet over the years, especially through Hannah's Prayer but not only there. My life is truly richer for all the "sisters" God has given me. If you are one, thank you!!!

Take a moment to enjoy You Know You're a Sister When... at (Note to my sisters stuggling with infertility, prengnacy and motherhood are mentioned in this article, so be prepared. But it was in her description of post-partum depression that I most related, not only for my own journey of post-partum depression, but in the same kind of life-giving, life-saving, life-enriching sisterhood of support described here that I found from you all in the midst of our infertility joureny.)

And we are talking about sisters, drop by my post at to join in the sisterhood of blogging women who are celebrating this weekend. :)

Where's My Focus?

In her Selective Focus post on the "Already Pretty" blog, author Sally McGraw gives some great ideas about how to rethink what I see when I look in the mirror. While not a Christ-centered article, her thoughts made me think of the advice found in Philippians 4:8-9 (MSG)
Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse... Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
