Happy Wednesday, everybody! And if you're a student or a parent, happy back-to-school time! (Groan. Cheer?)


Speaking of back-to-school, I was browsing some back-to-school sales online and that got me thinking about online shopping. And thinking of online shopping got me wondering about online clothing shopping. (Sort of related to the original topic, right?) So here's my question:

Do you prefer shopping for clothing in a traditional retail store or online? Why?

I used to love poking around in clothing stores for hours and hours, especially places like TJ Maxx where there are often numerous clearance treasures to be discovered. Nowadays I find that I rarely have the patience, so I do end up buying a lot of things on the internet, even knowing that there may be fit issues and I'll have to return them (though luckily, that doesn't seem to happen too often). Online shopping could never replace a visit to a good thrift store though. So many special things waiting to be discovered there. I wish there were better thrift stores around here.

How about you? Do you enjoy shopping for pajamas in your pajamas or the more "traditional" way?

L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation (and That One Time I Had A Tan)

Affiliate Links Sponsored

It's still summer, despite my wishes that it would suddenly become fall. And stay fall. Autumn weather is nice. But since it's still summer, I remain gung-ho about trying out lightweight foundations that contain SPF. I like my sunblock mind you, but anything extra that help prevent my face from getting sun-fried is good, in my book. Today I'll be talking about my experience with the new L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blur Foundation, which has SPF 18 (in the form of Octinoxate, if anyone's curious.)

Review: Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA

Affiliate Links Bought It

I've been on a "test all the AHA body lotions" kick lately. Someday I may do a detailed comparison if I have time, but I'll give you a big fat spoiler right now: Paula's Choice RESIST Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA has been the most effective and least annoying to use for me of the bunch so far. Effective how, you may be wondering? Well keep on reading and I'll give you the whole scoop.

Memebox Superbox #34 - DermoCosmetics 2: Review & Coupon Codes

Affiliate Links Press Sample

One of the nice things about beauty boxes is that they give you the opportunity to try different (and potentially more fun) versions of products you may already use. Case in point, certain items in the Memebox DermoCosmetics 2 box. I already use an AHA treatment regularly, but it's not terribly interesting. In this box there was an AHA treatment that makes bubbles. BUBBLES! OK, maybe I'm overreacting a bit. But novelty can be a good thing once in a while.
