Beauty on a Budget

I have been pursuing my Drugstore Chic quest and found some amazing products that I am very impressed with. 

  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Airbrush Makeup:  This was so impressive it is as nice if not better than Dior Spray Makeup, seriously.  It smells nice and light and goes on very light so that you can build it up should the need arise.  I put this on at 8am and it was there and perfect at 7 with no touch-ups!
  • Maybelline Born With It Lipstick: Gorgeous that should say enough. Not cakey or too thick.  It is creamy and the color rocks.

Drugstore Chic?

I am a cosmetic junkie, I love lip gloss, mascara, eye liner, you name it and I want or have it.  I am devoted to MAC eyeliners and shadows they have the best pigments around.  I have been using La Mer tinted moisturizer and other super expensive brands and decided that I am fed up!  I take great care of my skin with baby shampoo and Cetaphil.

I take my eye makeup off with Vaseline.  I don't have clogged pores or acne either.  I use Clearasil for pimples and yes it works.  So, if my skin care is drugstore why not try to use and find great products from the drugstore and save money!?  I am going to start buying some products and see how they compare to name brand stuff that I have used or currently have and pick my favorites. I have been using Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara for $26 and it lasts about 3 months at which time it really dries out.  My old Maybeline Great Lash in blackest black is still the best buy ever, it is $4.50 and you can get great results with it.  My next favorite pick is Aquaphor, it is fantastic for dry skin, dry lips your heels and your baby's bum.

Tsk Tsk

On Tuesday night we all went to Jason's softball games.  I was having a fun time with Liam walking around, playing at the playground and just watching him be cute.  This other chick showed up with her two kids and the younger one was like 2.5.  He started running back and forth on the bleachers so of course Liam wanted to play too.  So, I took his little hand and went back and forth on the bleachers until the other kid decided that he didn't want to share the bleachers that we were on.  He came over and kicked my son, yeah totally kicked him while I was holding his hand.  I looked at his mom for her to come and get her monster, I mean kid and she didn't.  She said (kids name) honey get out of the way, move, move honey.  And, this went on for the next hour until they left.  She never got up once to move her brat even when he got right in Liams face to me mean.  My kid being the best baby ever puckered up for a kiss when the monster got too close!  The kid turned and ran the other direction over a kiss.  Who knew a kiss would do it?  So, the chick never disciplined her kid, never said sorry he kicked Liam basically she sat on her ass and watched her tiny boyfriend (he is my size) play ball.  When did it become okay to ignore your childs poor manners in public?  I think I may have missed that memo...

Hello again...

I have been busy and uninspired the last month and today I feel like I got my mojo back.  I am four papers away from finally graduating this December.  I cut all of my hair off yesterday and I went to JCrew and bought some gorgeous things, all on sale! 

Liam is getting so cute and smart and funny each day it is amazing to me.  Now he full on chases our dogs while yelling.  He kisses like a kissy monster.  He loves to give hugs.  He can point out so many body parts it is amazing and he actually listens to me when I say NO. 

On another subject, I was feeling like me blogging about me and my life was too self important and wasn't into it.  I joined groups and clubs and other blogs trying to get a ton of followers and for what?  I don't really give a shit if people think I am cool, so I am not doing the high school blog popularity contest thing here.  I follow who I really like to read and see what they are up to because they inspire me.  I write to get what is going on in my head out, period.  I enjoy writing about what is going on because who else am I going to bore with my fashion obsessions and crafty ideas.  So XOXO to my Aunties that LOVE my blog and XOXO to anyone else who really likes to read this!
