A Few New Things




Having a CVS literally down the street from my apartment is both awesome and terrible at the same time. Awesome in the fact that if I run out of something, I can walk one block to get it; terrible in that I can never leave with just what I came there for.

Today I picked up a few beauty goodies, and one non-makeup item that I am really excited about [yes – that is People Magazine – love Lauren Conrad. Love.]. Here we go:

Skinny Girl Sparkler in Pink Grapefruit – I love the Skinny Girl Margarita and Cosmo cocktails, so I thought I would give this non-alcoholic drink a try. It is both delicious and refreshing, and only 5 calories.

L’Oreal The Infallible Blackbuster Liquid Eyeliner – you guys know how much I love my Super Slim Eyeliner, so I thought I would test out this thicker, marker-like eye pen. Just from its appearance, it seems like it would be very easy to use to draw a precise line. I will keep you posted . . .

Maybelline Blushing Beige + Rimmel Nude Eclipse – two more nude lip products! Are you surprised? Probably not. These two purchases were inspired by the lovely Faith of That’s Just Fabulous. When a fellow blogger recommends a lipstick of the nude variety, I cannot resist.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – so this is really interesting – gel nail polish that doesn’t require cleansing pads and a UV light. According to the package, a manicure using this two-step color and top coat should last without chips or smudges for 14 days, and is removable with your everyday nail polish remover.

Blog Logo! – I recently changed my blog logo [as recently as yesterday] to something that I think is a bit more clean. I created it using Adobe Indesign, and have been making several small tweaks. Let me know what you think!

What have you guys been loving?

    Let us know how you like the Miracle Gel. I saw it the other day at the store, but they didn’t have a good color selection so I thought I would wait. Really want to try it though!

    The logo looks great!I am really into super clean lines and classic looks, so naturally I love the logo. Great job making one for yourself!

    You’re page always looks so nice and clean and you give off a really sophisticated vibe which is good! I have a CVS near me as well, pretty much down the street lol. I know what that’s like. I am always picking up goodies. 🙂 xox

    Just tried out the Sally Hansen and it worked well for me. Got much longer wear out of my polish than I usually do. Looking forward to your thoughts.
