Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick:  Gorgeous color!IMG_5924_2

Kimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Liner:  I’m not normally a lip liner girl because I wear lip gloss and I’ve always associated lip liner with lipstick.  Plus I can never find a lip liner to match my gloss.  Problem solved!  This liner is clear so it holds my gloss in place and matches everything!!!IMG_5923_2

Day 14 of 30 Days of Thanks- The Internet

I’m thankful for the internet.  Not just for daily tasks (but we do rely on it for everything- I mean, when’s the last time anyone used a phone book?), but for Facebook and Twitter and blogs.  I’m on Facebook every day.  It’s how I keep in touch with so many friends and family.  It’s how I’ve reconnected with long lost friends.  And through Twitter and my blog I’ve met some of the greatest people!  I can’t imagine not being able to check in on my peeps’ lives now that I’m so used to it.  I’m also thankful for the internet for shopping!  I rarely shop at a brick and mortar store anymore for clothes, gifts, etc..  Love online shopping.  I love mail anyway so to get goodies in the mail is even better!

The most wonderful time of the year

It’s Fall y’all!  Well, not officially, but Starbucks is selling Pumpkin Lattes so that’s good enough for me!  Another sign it is Fall is that all the holiday stuff is coming out!  For instance….Scentsy‘s Holiday Collection is available now!  Scentsy has you covered for Halloween, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, and Christmas!  Check out some of these adorable warmers!  

 And there are lots of new Fall/Winter scents available too.  Like Autumn Sunset, Christmas Cottage, Pumpkin Marshmallow, Festival of Trees, Pumpkin Roll and more!  With less than 100 days left til Christmas you better get to shopping!  Click here to see the entire Holiday collection!

Hunger Games Nail Polish

I am a HUGE fan of the Hunger Games books and I am SO excited about the movie!  Usually I don’t get too excited about promotional tie ins but I saw the Hunger Games nail polishes by China Glaze and fell in love!  They have a ton of gorgeous colors.    I controlled myself though and chose 2.   I chose Riveting and Luxe and Lush.  LOVE them!   I also really like Fast Track, Stone Cold, Hook and Line, and Smoke and Ashes but a girl’s on a budget.  Electrify was pretty amazing looking too.  Luxe and Lush goes on clear with big chunks of pearlized glitter.  I like it over Riveting for my fingers and Riveting alone on my toes.  I’ll be all decked out for the premiere!   By the way, another reason I can’t wait to see the movie is that it was filmed right here in NC!  They filmed in Charlotte, Concord (just North of CLT), and outside of Asheville.  Funny, I don’t remember Lenny Kravitz asking me to hobknob with him!

A new venture!

Next week I am starting a new adventure!  The first of August I will become a Thirty-one consultant.  I’m really excited about this new venture.  I LOVE Thirty-one products and can’t wait to share them with my family and friends.  I’ve attached the link to the new Fall/Winter 2011 catalog!  As soon as I get hard copies I’ll send you one if you’d like.  So go ahead and make your wish lists now!  If your list is long, consider having a party (either a home or catalog party) so you can get your wish list items for free.  The new products are awesome but FREE makes them even better!

White Out

I’m on a white kick right now.  I’m in love with this white nail polish: Wet n Wild French White Creme   Love how opaque it is.  Kinda modern and retro all at the same time.  And for less than $1!

I also love my  Bare Minerals Snowflake eye shadow.  I’ve had this for years now and I’ve barely put a dent in it even though I use it about every day.   I suppose if you caked it on you’d get an opaque look eventually, but I use it mainly to brighten up the inner corners of my eyes and just below the brow bone.  It’s perfect.

I’m on the hunt for some cute white sunglasses.  Like these.  $14 is a deal I guess but as soon as I pay more than $10 for a pair of sunglasses I will lose them the next day.  I stick to under $8 if I can.  I broke my white sunglasses last summer and I’ve been pining for a pair ever since.  I’d also like a cute white headband.   Not a wedding looking headband though.

I’ve been partial lately to white home accents as well.  I love my gnomes and owls from West Elm.   It’s fun to take an everyday item and get it in all white.

 

 

 

Cheaper peepers

I have been wanting a new pair of glasses for a while.  My old pair (just a year old so not old old really) are pretty beat up already thanks to Zoe.  So I looked around online and found the site Eye Buy Direct.  I know there is that one site that has like $6 glasses but I’ve heard it can take weeks to get your glasses and that made me nervous.  Eye Buy Direct has glasses for less than $10 too and they ship much more quickly.  They have one of those things where you can upload a pic of yourself and try on glasses before you buy.  I found a cute pair of basic blacks.  Well, there are little stars on the side and they are far more subtle than I thought they’d be.  CSP said “Well, you aren’t 5 after all so I think subtle is good.”  Punk.  After I put in my Rx and chose all the non glare coatings etc, my total including shipping was only $37!  They came within a week.    Please forgive the quickie web cam pic.  I started shopping at Ebates so I got 7% back.  And if you use this code IF8TLMVGGD
then you’ll get 15% off your purchase!  Woot!   If we have some extra money left on our FSA card I have my eye on a couple more pairs.  Hey, glasses are accessories too!

Ah, sugar sugar

I am so excited!  Ok, so we have these fabulous neighbors who are always doing sweet things for us.  I was trying to think of a way to thank them when my mom, Gigi, suggested that I buy them a Scentsy plug in.  So I contacted Maryann, my Scentsy hookup, and placed an order.  I took the opportunity to order a couple of wax bars for my own warmers since I was placing an order.  I liked the description of the scent called Sugar: Fruity blend of lemon drops and cotton candy.  Who doesn’t like cotton candy?  I was thinking that the description sounded kind of familiar.  Then when my package arrived I smelled the Sugar bar and about died.  It smells almost exactly like my favorite perfume Pink Sugar by Aquolina!  I mean I LOOOOVE this perfume.  I can barely stand myself when I wear it.  I’m so excited!  Now my bathroom and bedroom smell all Sugary!
