Bath and Body Works Haul

Hi dolls! I know it's been awhile but I promise to make it up to you.  Ok I had to go over to Bath & Body Works since it's bee forever since I have been there   I was in desperate need of some soap and hand sanitizer.  They were having a 5 for $15 sale on the hand soap and a 5 for $5 sale on the sanitizer.  I tried out some new scents too.  I got fresh picked peach and bella flora hand soaps.  I also got some favorites with warm vanilla sugar, white citrus and cucumber melon hand soap.  I love this scent so I had to get some white citrus shower gel and hand cream.  How cute is my pink chiffon hand cream? last but not least I got flip flopped fruit, pink champagne, pink lemonade, pink diamonds and pink frosting hand sanitizers.  TTFN

Product Spotlight

Do you remember this?  I loved Electric Youth perfume back in the day.  Does anybody know of any current perfumes that smell the same or similar?

Ulta, Target Haul

Had some stocking up to do. Hit up my favorite store Target and got the Sonia Kashuk brush and spronge cleaner spray.  I've heard great things about it. Also picked up some grey nail polish by NYC called side-walkers   I'm thinking it's going to be a dark neutral  Finally I get to play around with the tattoo eye shadow.  I've been dying to try it.  Let me know if you have already.  The colors I got are tough as taupe and bad to the bronze.  Next stop was Ulta for some baby lips and nail polish.  I picked up a really cute coral polish by Essie called tart deco and one of the newer polishes by OPI call a woman's Prague a tiv.  It's a pretty bronze.  Ta Ta for now

Product Spotlight

One of my recent fragrance purchases, Pink Ice from Rue 21.  If you have never been to Rue 21 you definitely need to go.  They have the cutest clothes and accessories   And they are affordable.  This bottle of perfume is only $9.99. It has a really light sweet scent, perfect for everyday.
Last week I purchased the Blistex Raspberry lemonade lip balm and i'm not sure I like it.  What do you guys think? I am in love with the JR Watkins hand soap though.

Target Haul

I love target and their clearance shelves.  I found Say yes to cucumbers face wipes and neutrogena makeup remover wipes for half price.  Score!!! I also picked up some JR Watkins grapefruit scented hand soap.  I love the vintage label. Of course what would be a trip to target without some new lip balm.  They had a cute hello kitty strawberry lip balm in the dollar area and I also picked up the raspberry lemonade blistex.  It was a small trip but a good one.  What is your favorite thing to shop for at target?

Products i've used up recently

Avon Naturals Almond and Milk lotion. I love this scent from Avon. Unfortunately they only had it for a limited time. These are some of the best makeup remover wipes around. I always keep some mints on my desk and these are the best. How can you not love Nivea Creme? The scent is heavenly. This formula is great when you have really dry skin. Jasmine is probably my favorite scents of the OPI lotions. They all are great. I love how light this lotion is. And a winter must have Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream. Love It!!!

Quick and easy makeup bag cleanup

Every now and then we need to clean out our makeup bag. This keeps everything organized, helps us rediscover things we hadn't been using and lets us know what new products we need. So here is a quick little checklist. 1. Empty all the contents onto a clean flat surface such as a counter top. You want to use a surface that is easy to clean up just in case something spills. 2. Get rid of anything that is old and expired. Toss broken pencils and lipsticks. If your mascara or liquid eyeliner is more than four months old toss it. 3. Wipe down everything from the bag to all the products with a damp cloth. Let dry. 4. Now it’s time to reassess everything. Are you using everything? Do you really need everything here or can you get rid of something? Is there anything that you need to purchase or restock up on? 5. In an organized fashion, repack everything into the bag. You also might want to consider some of the nice organizing trays that are available. Try to keep like products together so that you can find things fast. If you do this on a regular basis it doesn't take too long. I hope this helped. Ciao

Walmart Haul

OK did a little shopping at Walmart and I thought i'd show you the cool stuff I got. First Is this cute owl mug that I just had to have. It comes with conversation hearts inside.
I bought Suave's everlasting sunshine lotion to go in my bathroom. I love the scent it has and it lasts for a long time. I also love that it's thin but not too thin and also not too thick. Next is the Nivea smooth sensation lotion. Nivea makes the best lotions and cremes ever. They have a wonderful scent to them. I wish they would make a perfume. Next is the Neutrogena naturals fresh cleansing and makeup remover. This line of products just came out and I was dying to give it a try after receiving samples of it at a hotel recently. I'll let you know how it works. Of course you must always have a billion blistex and chapsticks around. This is the blistex medicated lip-balm with SPF 15.I love vampires, so of course I had to have the vampire perfume from body fantasies. It kind of smells like cotton candy. Also it came with a purse spray which is awesome. I also have been meaning to try the strawberry fields tic tacs and I wasn't disappointed. They're pink and raise money for breast cancer research how could you not love them. Next is Cover Girls contouring blush in refined rose, eye-shadow singles in mink and bedazzled biscotti. These are some very neutral colors and staples in my makeup bag. I love that the bedazzled biscotti has some sparkle to it.
I have heard some amazing reviews about the author John Green and this book in particular, the fault in our stars. Can't wait to read it. Let me know if you have read it and what you think.

Beauty Resolutions

1. Take better care of my skin. I need to be more diligent with using toner and applying moisturizer. I have used my favorite Clinque dramatically different moisturizing lotion since I was a teen.

2. Keep my brows in shape.  I hate tweezing but it is a must.  The brows frame the face and must be keep under control.  I am in love with Avon's ergonomic tweezers.  I must have 6 of them.

3. I have a ton of nail polish and I need to use it.  I'm going to change my polish more often.  One of my favorites is Essie's wicked.

4. I love face masks.  Unfortunately I never remember to use them.  I need to get on a regular schedule of using one once a week.  I love the little face mask packets from Montagne Jeunesse passion peel off face mask.

5.  Like using a face mask I need to exfoliate more often.  I have really luxurious body scrub that smells like cucumber melon that I want to try out.  Of course you can't forget St. Ives Apricot Scrub.
