Recent (not-just-beauty) favorites

Affiliate Links Bought It Press Samples

Hey, so it's been MONTHS since I did any sort of "favorites" roundup. I just don't always feel motivated to write one, even when I've tried lots of things I liked. What makes this time different? I don't know. Probably unicorns. In any case, I have several recent (not-just-beauty) favorites to share with you today!

Since I do tend to write about beauty products more often than anything else, let's start with that.

Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation Review & Swatches

Affiliate Links Bought It

It's almost fall, y'all! Weird. I actually just bought a bunch of summer clearance clothing in preparation for winter, but that's a weird topic that should probably wait until later. Um, anyway, who wants to hear about a new (ish) and awesome foundation? The product du jour is Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation. Some of you may remember this popping up in my Walgreens summer beauty post, but I wanted to give it a more detailed review.

Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation 10 Porcelain Ivory 15 Ivory

I own this foundation in two shades: Porcelain Ivory (10) and Ivory (15). These are the lightest options in the range and there are 10 additional, darker shades. Not a bad selection.

Use It Or Lose It: August 2014 Samples (and more) Edition!

Affiliate Links Bought It

The end of August can only mean one thing: Time for another Use It Or Lose It! Well, technically two things because online shopping. Labor Day Weekend sales are happening in abundance at the moment. I need to buy underwear ... where do y'all buy underwear? My favorite kind was discontinued. Um ... yeah. Anyway, back to the topic at hand ....

Use It Or Lose It: August 2014 Hello Pretty Bird HelloPrettyBird

In case you're not familiar with my Use It Or Lose It series, here's the lowdown: Each month I select a few beauty/personal care items I've been hoarding in my stash and vow to either use them up and review them or throw them away! I chose five products this time—four samples and one full-sized lip product. Let the reviewing commence!

Style your hair like a Rock Star with TRESemmé and Walmart


How do you "amp up" your hairstyle? I'll admit that elaborate styling is usually low on my priority list on the average weekday, but when I go out on the weekends I like to add a little more volume and "oomph" to my hair. Pass the hairspray and blow dryer please! Having "big" hair makes me feel like a rock star. Or, y'know, slightly taller.

Looking for a little rock star hair-spiration yourself? TRESemm√© has teamed up with Walmart in celebration of the VMAs to bring you five red carpet-worthy styling tutorials—you can check them all out on the Walmart website. Personally I think I'd go for the "Full Blown Volume" or "Pumped Up Pony" looks—how about you? In any case, TRESemm√© makes salon-quality products at very affordable prices, so make sure to look for them at your local Walmart!
