About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Let's Go Shopping

I love a great beauty product but don't trust those chicks on infomercials- too perky.  
So, since you all know I'm quite real (and not getting paid), I thought I'd share some new finds that I'm truly excited about!

On my birthday Sephora gave me a free sample of Benefit's they're Real! mascara.  (Makes me giggle as it reminds me of Seinfeld.)  The sales lady told me it was really good.  I was just happy to get it for free and not expecting much.  She told me the trick was to wiggle the brush down my lashes- so I did.  Wow.  Worth the $23.  Lashes are thick and lovely and I think my eyes even sparkle a bit.;)

My fabulous Mom gave me L'oreal B.B. Cream for my birthday.  I was really excited to try this as I'd heard so much about the new "B.B." creams on the market.  Let me start off by mentioning that I hate lotions/creams on my face.  My skin tends to be oily so I was prepared to be disappointed.  Oh, my, this cream is niiicccceeee.  It takes the redness out of my skin and doesn't feel a but greasy.  Nice coverage without feeling heavy.  The $7.96 price tag is a steal.

Here is the splurge.  Aveda Green Science Firming Face Cream is for those of us ready to do battle with aging.  Yep, that's me.  This product is another beauty from my parents.  I hate creams on my face, remember?  Well, Aveda has impressed me once again.  It feels wonderful on my skin!  A creamy application and no greasiness.  $58 but it's a war on aging!  $5.00 is not going to cut it, ladies.  This product is worth every penny.

*I didn't receive a penny to promote these products.  I just love you guys and wanted to share.;)*

That B.B. Cream is the best! I love it for days when I don't feel like applying 'regular' makeup.

So is the B.B. cream a foundation too or just a daily cream like oil of olay? I'm to the point where I definately need to start putting some lotion on every day. I'm having little lines and creases show up under my eyes :( The mascara..is that something you have to buy through a book like Mary Kay or is it something you can buy at the mall? You can tell I don't got to the mall a lot can't you? LOL I'm sure that the face firming cream would be awesome! Sounds like you had a nice shopping spree!! So would you share what perfumes you love? Enjoyed this! Love & Hugs, Jerelene

Jerelene- The B.B. cream is a light foundation that "princes, perfects, hydrates and corrects"- LOVE! The mascara is available online or in stores at Sephora. It is amazing- truly. There are lashes I never knew I had before that have appeared!:) Lori

I might have to try those! I don't wear creams or things--oily skin and so many things have a fragrance that makes me crazy!
