     Miracles do happen!  In the 38 years I have been alive, I don't think that I ever have made sugar cookies that have REALLY worked well.  I have tried many, many times and today was my lucky day!  I googled NO FAIL SUGAR COOKIES and picked a recipe that you could use intricate cookie cutters with because the dough held its shape really well and the dough was to die for!  I am a sucker for cookie dough!    
      I also liked the trick of using parchment paper (I used waxed paper...not sure the difference) and didn't have to wait an hour or two to let the dough chill.  Patience in the kitchen is not one of my strongest virtues!  Here is my cute little 4 year old Lilly and it was her idea to make cookies.  The other 6 kids weren't home...they will be in charge of frosting them if they don't get eaten first, LOL.  Here is the recipe!



cups flour



  1. 1
    Cream butter and sugar.
  2. 2
    Add eggs and vanilla.
  3. 3
    Mix dry ingredients and add to butter mixture.
  4. 4
    Mix well.
  5. 5
    Chill for 1 to 2 hours or see HINT below.
  6. 6
    Roll to desired thickness and cut into desired shapes.
  7. 7
    Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges.
  8. 8
    HINT: Rolling out dough without the mess-rather than wait for the dough to chill, take freshly made dough and place a glob between two sheets of parchment paper.
  9. 9
    Roll it out to the desired thickness then place the dough with paper on a cookie sheet and pop it in the refrigerator.
  10. 10
    Continue rolling dough between paper until you have used it all.
  11. 11
    By the time you finish preparing the dough, the first batch will be chilled and ready to cut.
  12. 12
    Reroll left over dough and repeat the process.
  13. 13
    An added bonus is that you aren't adding any more flour to the cookies by rolling them out the old fashioned way.

Younique First Ladies 1st Team Meeting!

 The Younique First Ladies 1st Team meeting was a huge success!  Thanks to all who attended!  It was on Friday, November 14th, 2014.  We first had an hour of meet, greet and eat and then 2 hours of training.  We did a team exercise where we got into two teams and stood staggered across from each other.  As a team, the object was to lower the tent pole to the ground with only letting it rest on the top of your index finger.  It actually was much
more difficult that you would think!  It takes a lot longer.  I loved observing..I observed natural leaders blossoming. They were encouraging the team, staying positive, and pointed out things that could be applied to our Younique business.  For example, were you competing?  We are not in competition with each other.  Were you encouraging or discouraging?  It was a great team building activity and the power of positive thinking!


Here is the slide show that was shown.  Simply copy and paste into your browser!

Our top selling product:

Younique's Moodstruck 3 D Fiber Lash magic mascara!  


Have you tried Younique's 3 D Fiber Lashes yet?  If not, you have not tried the best mascara in the world!  It helps you obtain amazing lashes.  It helps you naturally increase the length and volume of your own lashes up to 300%!  

1.  How does it work?
  • Younique 3D Fiber Lashes comes in an adorable black case and 2 tubes.  1 tube is the transplanting gel and the second tube is the 100% all natural green tea fibers.  
2.  How is it applied?  
  • Just like mascara.  Some prefer to apply their regular mascara as a base.  I personally prefer to apply to  my bare lashes.  You apply one coat of the transplanting gel, one coat of the fibers, then another coat of the transplanting get to seal the fibers.  Repeat as necessary.  If I am getting pictures taken, I will do several coats.  I seriously love them so much!  I feel naked without them on!  
3.  What if fibers fall on my cheeks through out the day? 
  • All you need to do is apply more transplanting gel to seal the fibers.  That will keep them from falling off your lashes through out the day.    
4.  How is it removed?
  • Very easily when you wash your face at night.  I love how easy it comes off.  I purposely don't buy waterproof mascara because it is so difficult to remove and I feel like it damages my lashes.  
5.  How much does it cost and how long does it last?

      For a 60-90 day supply, it costs only $29 dollars.  That is even wearing it every day.
6.  How do I order?    

Check out this is only 2 mins.
