~Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Mascara~ My current eyeball enhancer (January 2011)! Thanks to my sister for the introduction!
Johnson & Johnson 24 Hour Body Lotion. LOVE THIS STUFF.
I am probably one of the few women who still regularly indulge in this heavenly treat. I love scented bath bubbles or fizzy bath balls, yummy candles, and if I’ve got more than a few minutes I’ll grab a book, too! These lovely me-time moments are less frequent now, but it just means that I enjoy them more when they do happen. What do you do to pamper yourself?
I was born a strawberry blond, it turned platinum on it’s own and gradually started getting darker around 4th grade. Sigh. Enter highlights in the early 2000’s. I don’t have any right now, and haven’t in a bit – being pregnant and running after a toddler I just don’t have the time or energy for the upkeep of my beloved blond enhancement process…but someday I’ll make the time again and revive my luscious locks!
Cotton candy & cupcakes!
Who doesn’t love these things? Sweet, scrumptious, puffy concoctions. The cotton candy is usually a once-a-year treat at the fair in the fall, but cupcakes are more attainable (or do-it-yourselfable). My sister and I braved midtown Atlanta last year to find “Chocolate Pink”, a gourmet cupcake provider ~ SO WORTH the parking hassle!!!
I love this stuff from L’Oreal! Eye De-Crease
I’ve been using it for a few years now on the occasion I do wear eye make-up. It keeps my eyelids oil & crease free for hours, and it’s under $10 compared to similar department store brands!
Do I really need to say more? If it’s not sweet, I don’t want it!
MAC’s new To the Beach Collection. A set of wonderfully luscious, sandy, beachy colors to play with when the temperatures rise! This link has photos of all the products in this collection:
Lovely glosses, bright shadows, blushes and bronzers in pretty packaging, among other things. I think May 27th is the launch date in the U.S. – so go check out your local MAC counter or order online (place online orders early as they tend to run out of things faster than the department store counters!)
Floral or frou frou headbands are a wonderful way to perk up a day look. With or without a ponytail they’re fun, girly and I love them! If you have a dressy one, it’s an easy way to top off your wardrobe for a night out!
I adore MAC cosmetics. I’m not a daily make-up wearer (except for mascara – I MUST have eyelashes before leaving the house, but that’s a whole different discussion!) But MAC is loaded with awesomely pigmented eye shades, oodles of finishes in their fabulously huge color palette, and I am a gigantic fan of their lip glosses. I prefer the ones with the sponge tip applicators, but every time I empty a tube, I save it in case I need to do an applicator switch out with a new one that came with a brush! I also like some of their special collections, most recently their Hello Kitty, Heatherette and Barbie limited editions. It’s fun to buy a new lip gloss for yourself in a pretty, shimmery shade or an out of the ordinary eye shadow color just for fun. You totally deserve it once in a while!
