beauty ho, pop culture, shopping

5 things I love in June

  • eBay.  Don’t be all like “Dude, I was loving eBay back in 2001.”  Yeah, I know.  But I went a while without shopping on eBay and over the last year I’ve gotten back into it.   There are some serious deals to be had.  I fell in love with these earrings at a Lia Sophia jewelry party a while back.   But they were like $24 or something.  I found them on eBay for $6.  With shipping.  They are my absolute favorite earrings.
  • My latest eBay purchase is actually a birthday present from CSP.  I’ve been coveting my sister Sara’s Black Rapid camera strap.  Well, those sell for upwards of $50.  I found it on eBay for $18 with shipping!  Mine may be a different brand, I’m not sure as it came from Brooklyn and while it was new in the package (like the earrings-used earrings would be gross) it has a Q on it instead of an R.  Whatever.  It works the same and now we have $$ left over!  I love it so much!  It holds the camera down on your hip so it’s not bouncing off the girls right in my way.  LOVE.
  • Revlon Scents of Summer Nail Polish.  Scented nail polish.  At first I was dubious.  I bought the Coconut Crush and the Ocean Breeze at CVS for less than $1 each with coupons.  I use the Ocean Breeze on my toes (makes me feel like a mermaid) & the Coconut Crush on my fingers.  It really smells like coconuts!  Plus the colors are fab.  I painted Olivia’s nails with the aqua as the base and white polka dots.  She said her hands smelled “refreshing”.
  • Cuddling in the bed watching movies with CSP & the pugs.
  • Adele.  Buy her album 21.  It’s amazing.  I can’t stop listening to it.  19 is fabulous too, but right now 21 is on repeat in my car.
