My Best Beauty Product Choices of the Year Are!…..

I will love Sephora always and forever, but sometimes the best deals you can get are as cheap and easy to find as a cheap drink in a dive bar.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on my top beauty products that I’ve chosen as my super favorites!!

Sally Hansen Nail Strips!

Hands down, the BEST deal on “nail polish” strips out there.  They last for almost a week, you can peel them off, or take them off with nail polish.  Sometimes it can be a crapshoot though!  If you buy a pack that’s not super new, and that can be hard to tell, the strips may not stick to your nails…but a hairdryer can help soften them up for you 😉

I’m just super excited to try their new gel strips which are hitting shelves soon!

Loreal B & B Cream.

This stuff feels like nothing on your skin.  I LOATHE makeup, but for those times where I have to actually throw something on.  This is the bomb!  It comes out of the tube white, with little pigment capsules that burst and magically match your skin tone! (purchase appropriate shades, ala, light-medium-dark).  It’s about $10.00 and I really like how it comes out white and not too cakey.  I purchased a $40 designer brand at Sephora and promptly returned it.  This stuff rocks!


CK One Liquid Eyeliner

This stuff goes on like a felt tip marker.  It stays on for awhile as well.  I slept in mine, and barely had to touch it up the next day.  It’s worth the $22 price tag.  You get what you pay for with eye products.



I am STILL in search of the perfect Mascara.  I’ve been impressed with CK One, Dior Show, and pleasantly surprised with Rimmel which is an affordable drugstore version.  As much as I love eyelash extensions, I cannot be bothered to lay down long enough to get them done.  I have too much to do nowadays.

Does anybody have any stellar mascara they can recommend?

Until next time, enjoy….


Theraflu, where are you?

I found out today from my pharmacist that Theraflu has been discontinued.  I’m really annoyed about this because I really rely on their nighttime formula when I have a cold.

I did a google search and the most valid answer I’ve found for why it’s being discontinued is because of “many variables”.

I looked on and you can purchase it there from $20-40 a box.  Or a generic version for $5.00 a box PLUS $30 shipping and handling.

Really? That is MEAN people (but I do appreciate and respect someone who’s trying to make a buck).

Walgreens has a generic version that is still around.

Anybody have any laying around they’d like to give me?  I can’t take the daytime kind, it causes an allergic reaction, but the nighttime kind…bring it on.


Have your Ice Cream and eat it too. Arctic Zero, 150 calories for a PINT!

Can I just say that I think I’ve found a new comfort food that’s actually not BAD for you?!

Look at this:

You know what I like to do sometime?  Go ahead and judge me, but sometimes there’s nothing more satisfying than eating a pint of ice cream.  Why?  Just because.  I’d heard about Arctic Zero, and finally got the courage to buy it.  Yes I was skeptical, but I tried the peanut butter chocolate flavor.  YUM.  I will seriously make this one of my diet staples.  It’s like a protein shake, but frozen.  Nice job guys!  Nice job. It’s 150 calories, it has stuff in it that’s good for you.  Most importantly, I didn’t feel guilty or cry after I ate it.

I’m in love.
