New Beauty Products

10 Mar

I bought a few new beauty products last night, and I am really loving them! I bought a new nail polish by Essie called “Ladylike”. It is a nice creamy neutral pink. It went on smooth and had great coverage with just two coats. I’m loving it for spring! I think it will be a great fall color as well.

Essie polish-ladylike

This was the first time I tried an Essie polish. I have to say that I’m really liking it, and it was well worth the money.

I also bought a new lip color. It intrigued me when I say it in the store because it looks like a big crayon. I wasn’t too sure about how it would feel on my lips; I thought it may be a bit dry, but decided it was worth a shot at $5.

Sally Hansen colorfast

It is Sally Hansen brand, and the color is called “Get Mauve’n”.

It is not dry at all like I was afraid of. It is very moisturizing and fun to put on. It is not sticky at all which I really don’t like. And, the color is a perfect neutral. I would definitely recommend this for an everyday lip color at a very decent price. I think I’ll be buying more colors soon!


Is It Spring Yet?

5 Mar

I’m so ready for spring! I am excited for it to warm up a bit and be more colorful with pretty blooming flowers everywhere. I have slowly started shopping for spring clothing and decor for the house. And, last weekend the hubby and I did A LOT of spring cleaning. I could definitely do without that part! But, what I am looking forward to are…

New Frames

23 Feb

Today, I finally broke down and went shopping for new glasses. I have been wearing my old pair for almost seven years now. I usually wear contacts, but it’s nice to have the option of glasses when my eyes are dry or tired. I haven’t had this option in the past year or so because my prescription is just too weak with my current pair of glasses. So, needless to say, it was definitely time. Here are my old pair of glasses.

I love these frames, but I also want something new, so I decided to just get a whole new pair of frames and lenses. I went to Walmart of all places. I went in just to look expecting to be ignored and not find anything cute. I went right when they opened this morning, and I was surprised to be greeted by the assistant manager who was super nice and helpful. She showed me around, told me how much everything would cost and verified my insurance. There was actually a really good selection of frames to choose from too. These are a few of my favorite ones.

Making a decision was tough! The hubby helped me through pictures via text messages. 😉 Which one is your favorite?? I will post a picture of the ones I picked when I get them in ~10 days. I can’t wait!
