Pre Thanksgiving Cleaning

For a bunch of reasons, my family has decided to have Thanksgiving dinner TOMORROW.
Bummer right? Thanksgiving on the biggest shopping day ever and I'm going to miss it. Oh well family first!!
This year the meal and family gathering will be taking place at my parents house.
During the school year, I live on campus and visit my house every other weekend.
Because I'm only home for two days at a time, my room sits and collects dust.
Yesterday I cleaned and did a bit of decorating... it took me almost the whole day.
I apologize for the horrible quality pictures but at least you can see my room decor.
I really like the way my room looks... My hardwork payed off and I am excited to show
my family that after a year of being in this house... my room is finally clean and decorated.

Clinique Splurge

Ok! So I got the Clinique free-gift from my grandmother and it came with a lot of cute things…
One of THE BEST products inside was the Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser.
I put it on in the shower and it was so smooth.
I didn’t really want to rinse it off.
After rinsing and getting out of the shower, I noticed that my face felt unbelievably soft and looked quite awake. It was as if this face wash woke up my skin cells and brought them to life. I was glowing.
With that said, I’ll probably be asking Santa for a little bottle of this face wash. Until then, I’ll be squeezing it out of the sample

Here’s to pretty skin and happy faces, Blondes on a budget <3 (Lynn)

Nail polish tip

Nail polish tip
One of the benefits of purchasing higher quality nail polishes such as OPI, Borghese, or Essie is that they typically stay un-chipped much longer than drug store polishes.
But they typically begin to wear down at the end of day two. How do you put off that wearing away you get?
Here’s a few tips:
1.) Buff lightly over the tip of the nail before you paint.
2.) 2 solid coats over the entire nail.
3.) Brush an extra coat just over the tips. Imagine you are doing a self french manicure.
4. A great top coat.
These tips should help you to make your polish last (a functional) 3-4 days at least.
Hugs and pretty nails!

A Kiss of Moisture

I currently own two if nivea’s chap-sticks and I use them both religiously. It’s that time of year when the weather is killing my lips. I’ve searched high and low for that “perfect” lip balm and by golly, I’ve got IT!. “A kiss of moisture” is thick but goes on smooth, and it feels like I’m putting lotion on my lips. I think what I like the most about it is the tact that it has no scent or color so my boyfriend can borrow it, and isn’t grossed out when he kisses me while I’m wearing it. Nivea’s lip care products are cheaper than burts bees and can be found at most drugstores, targets, and walmarts!
My lips have never been happier :)

My New Favorite Product!

Hello all!  I realize that I (Kelly) have not personally posted anything on here for a week or so and I apologize!  As Lynn mentioned, we had fall break and I enjoyed fall in BEAUTIFUL upstate New York with my lovely family!
Now to the good stuff….
I have a great steal/deal for you bargain beauties.  The e.l.f. “Zit Zapper.”  This little bad boy works miracles!  I tend to have breakouts when I change water, change shampoo, or pretty much change anything!  I personally know that witch Hazel and Tea Tree are great natural ingredients for healing.  However, purchasing them separately and making your own “concoction” could be quite pricey!  Fortunately, this little prize is only $1!  I have been using it for a week now and have only used a tiny bit of the tube.  Since it is roll on it is very EASY to use!  Oh and did I mention, it has been clearing up my face!! I give this product 5 STARS!!!!
You would be wise for investing in this little jewel to keep in your purse on the go and in your regular cosmetic case regardless of what kind of skin you have!
Till next time!
