2 Minute Facial


Thank goodness for Sephora samples!

I am sick, beyond sick with bronchitis so I have been home from work for a few days, needing to clear up my skin I looked through my samples and wahla I found this Kate Somerville Exfoliate 2 minute facial… this stuff is AMAZING I am so sad I didn’t try this sooner. It freaked me out at first with the dark gooey green that came out, but when you put it on to your damp face it immediately turns white leave it on for about 2 minutes and then wash it off and BAM my skin felt AHMAZING! Literally, I keep gropping it as I write this blog post. It is a bit pricey at $85 for 2 oz it better work!

I am going to put my hardworking money into this product & purchase it ASAP!

This isn’t a sponsored post, I am just beyond impressed with this product!

#DIY Halloween Treat bags!

wpid-img_20141026_153320.jpg wpid-wp-1414593913233.jpg

In the spirit of Halloween tomorrow, I decided to show these super cheap totes I made to give out at work for Halloween! I purchased everything ( 9 totes) and tons of crafts for under $10 all at Michael’s! These are great to make with your kids, cheap and quick. I bought the plain black felt totes $1 a piece on sale for 75 cents a piece. Grabbed some cute foam pieces, chalkboard name tags & used my hot glue gun and got to work!

What kid doesn’t want a huge back to put all the goodies in? I remember using pillow cases to fill up our bags as a child!

Hope you guys have a great time crafting for Halloween!

Bobbi Brown nude on nude palette #MOTD



Bobbi Brown - Nude On Nude Palette

Bobbi Brown - Nude On Nude Palette

I really need to invest in a good camera, this photo just doesn’t do justice to the Bobbi Brown eyeshadow I had used and purchased from Nordstrom during there yearly sale a few months ago, although they don’t sell it anymore at Nordstrom it is available at Sephora for $65!

I love Bobbi Brown, it was one of my first real makeup purchases back in high school given to me as a Christmas present from my mother. I fell in love ever since.

What do you think about Bobbi Brown products? I will have to create another post sometime soon with a close up of this beautiful palette!

Who doesn’t want the perfect brows? I for one try to find the perfect products to make my brows look perfect. I was so thrilled when I found out I’d get to try out Paula Adorf’s 2+1 Brow (c/o).

Seen in the latest issues of In Style, Allure, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle and on celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Sandra Bullock, Debra Messing and Rene√© Zellweger, Paula’s products are constantly embraced as industry favorites.

What I love about this product is that everything you need is all in one, seriously. It comes with 2 colors ( pick which color is best for you) and setting wax all at one cost! I actually mixed both colors together to achieve a light to dark contrast to make it a little more natural looking, and with the brush they provide you it goes on so well!

You can purchase this item from Paula Adorf’s website for only $26

and now with a special code you can get the Perfect Brow Brush a ($24) value free with a purchase of the 2+1 brow Jude use code BROWBRUSH at checkout!
