Smooch Proof

I know most of you know that I have a stupid big collection of lip gloss. And my search still continues for great glosses cause I believe you never have enough and there's always something new coming out.

Sometimes our lip gloss purchases are a gamble and I have a morgue of bad glosses, BUT, I recently got super lucky with this one. I took a chance on a long wearing lip stain. I remember wearing the cover girl version way back in the day, and let me tell you, that stuff stays on even when you don't want it to! I woke up like a cheap date with it still on in the mornings.... that was a little to "long weraing" for me.
New York Color is an inexpensive collection (althought I don't really like anything else from them) you can get at the drug store or Walmart and this Smooch Proof 16 Hour lip stain is perfect! It doesn't stay on for 16 hours, (not sure why they can't just be real about how long it stays on for... I'm totally fine with it staying on for 5 or 6 hours max, I guess it wouldn't sound like a good selling point) but it stays on long enough for you to eat, drink and smooch when your out doing whatever it is your doing. I LOVE IT!
I have "never ending nude" and think my next one may be "forever freesia". It's $4.99 so you cant go wrong choosing from one of these colors to try. The tip is like a felt tip pen and goes on perfect.


Happy Tuesday! <3

Drop kick Tom

Last week I went to my eMags on my iPad and this was waiting for me to download...
My first reaction was "how awesome" this cover was (i'm kind of a magazine cover snob-InStyle sucks these days)... And my second thought was, "what timing!!!"....

They do the cover stories for mags a couple months ahead of when they actually appear.
SO, since Kate decided (or so I it looked to us anyway) to drop kick Tom in a matter of minutes I'm really curious what she may have had to say a few months back on his interview.... I havent seen this on the stands yet so hopefully I'm showing you first :-) (unless it came out over the weekend while I was obssessing over Kenny Chesney)
I haven't actually read it yet cause when I downloaded it I was so tired, it was like, 1 am and I needed to sleep. If she says anything profound I will report back immediately; otherwise keep your eyes peeled for this and pick it up, theres other good stuff in this issue too :-)
With the eMags you get to see the alternate covers so I posted that one for y'all too. Your welcome :)
Happy Monday! <3

The NEW old ME


To all my regular readers, I'm sorry I fell off the blog planet for so long, but I'm back for your reading pleasure! To all my new readers, welcome and hope you enjoy the blogging journey your about to embark on with me.

I'm going to talk about myself and get it out of the way since its my first post in almost a year, then after that you can rely on daily/weekly topics and product reviews that I hope will make you laugh and be useful to your life in some way.

I won't bore you with ALL the details, but I was laid off 4 weeks ago and it ended up being a blessing in disguise... During the last 3 months of working I experienced some heart breaking personal medical problems and with all the stress at work it made for a rough patch up to the month of May. Prior to my last job some of you may remember I was unemployed for a year and it was awful. But this time it's GREAT!

My position was eliminated due to lack of revenue in the company. We won't talk about the guy that flew in from Chicago to lay me off rented the biggest and most expensive Mercedes Benz I had ever seen.... But, yeah. Regardless, life is good and I feel great thanks to being relieved of a stressful job and loosing 20 lbs. For a long while I was carrying around about 15 lbs spread out all over me; i dont think i was fat, but it was just enough weight to make me feel uncomfortable. Now, 20 lbs are gone and it's helped how I feel about myself and my outlook on what's next in life for me.

A few things you can look forward too each week on my blog is "Website Wednesday" and I'm bringing back "Fabulous Friday"!

So, like the image says above, Don't forget to be Awesome! If there is something bothering you or holding you back from something, make an effort to fix or change it; even if it's a small effort or it's a small thing your trying to conquer.

You can view all last years posts by clicking "older posts". :-)

Talk to you soon <3
