I am LOVING this coral lip gloss by Revlon. It is so bright and summery! There was a big display of new Revlon lip wear at Walgreens and I just could not resist! Love it!!


Hello SUMMER! Everyone (especially us teachers) loves sweet summer- pool time, long days spent with family, Popsicles and hotdogs! Everyone also wants that perfect golden tan. If your like me who doesn’t really tan in sun and is afraid of getting skin cancer or zapping your ovaries in the tanning bed but still crave that deep tan- fake bake 60 minutes is for you!! It is perfect! Blends nicely, last a good bit longer than flawless and WON’T RUN OFF IN CHLORINE POOL!! Win win!!


Q
hey i was wondering if you had any problems with Fake Bake Flawless? (I saw your tagged picture on tumblr.) I recently purchased it and when i use it, it creates a beautiful tan and after 12+ hours, I shower, and all the tan seems to wash away and i'm left looking pale again?? (please answer privately so i see this in my inbox!)

Hey! Sorry- just seeing this question. Yes- flawless is awful in that way. It seemed like it would wash off the next time! BUT try fake bake 60 minutes!! I LOVE it! You can choose your tan- wash it off after 1 hour, 2 hours, or 3 hours. It doesn’t wash off like flawless does. It stays on for about a week and doesn’t turn splotchy after so many days!! Love it! Try it.


This may not be makeup or clothes related, but it is beautiful. 

 I can not believe my baby is already a year old!! Time has been flying by, all too quickly! It has always been easy for me to get lost in beauty aisle at Target or Walgreens, memorized by the shiny lip glosses and fun nail polishes. Not because I think I am ugly or insecure (even though we all have those moments of insecurity) but because I am truly a “girly girl” and just love everything that sparkles and shines!! :) 

Now I am memorized by my beautiful son. I am easily lost in his dimpled smile, syrupy sweet kisses and the sound of his little footsteps. I love everything about being a “momma-momma-mommmmm” (in the words of my 13 month old). From the joys of him puckering up and the snuggles to the nasty diapers and food throwing. He has turned my life upside down, changed the meaning and purpose. 

I love him dearly. He is my little piece of beautiful perfection.

OBSESSED with this fantastic sheer lip balm by l’oreal! It goes on so smooth  and makes my lips feel silky soft. It was more than I like to pay, I think around $5.00, but I had a$ 2.00 off coupon!! Woot woot! Mommy on a tight budget meets beauty! :)

I currently can’t get enough of wet n’ wild lip colors!! At only 1.99-2.99 a pop you can’t go wrong. The mattes are really nice, especially in the nude colors. (I have a pale pink some where that looks good too though…) The price of these mattes are really unbeatable but they can sometimes get a little clumpy, so I put a Vaseline on my lips first before smearing on the mattes. 

Their new shine colors are simply fantastic as is. They go on smooth, with no bleeding! I love it!! They really last longer than I expected, which is always nice for this mommy of a toddler and 3rd grade teacher to 44 students! I smear it on at 7 before heading out and reapply after lunch! When I get home my lips still have some color on them. Amazing!!! 

This is definitely a simply fantastic product! Poor and busy mommy/teacher meets  beauty!!

This is a MUST HAVE for all my pasty white Texas gals! Even in December is is hot outside and my I go straight for Fake Bake’s Flawless to give me a nice, very subtle glow. This fake tanner is NOT very dark at all, just a nice healthy glow. It comes out dark so you can see where you have missed. The mitt it comes with is marvelous and even if you use a different self tanner I would order a bottle of this just for the mitt!! The mitt has to be the main reason why I have never had any streaks. I slap this stuff on my body after each shower. It is super easy. 1. Begin with pasty legs. 2. Spray on said pasty legs. 3. Use mitt to rub it in. Repeat above on all body parts!! After I am done I just rub the mitt on my face going into my neck and ears. The left over spray on it gets my face a nice glow too! This is a simply fantastic product. Plus, with my amazon prime membership it ships for free and only costs around $15.00! One bottle lasts me close to 2 months.

**FYI** That is just a funky shadow on my hand from the mitt! :)

Check out these two STEALS I found at Marshall’s and Kohl’s!! The glittery one is my Christmas dress- $20.00 at Marshall’s! This little sparkly number definitely put me in the Christmas spirit. The one on the left is a perfect school dress. I love simple dresses for school. Especially when they are Hornet Green (our spirit colors!) Got this dress for $8.80 at kohl’s!!!! Great deals like these make this poor mommy/teacher smile big!!

E.L.F. Makeup is fantastic for anyone on a budget! Especially this busy mom. It is easy and stays on. I love their primer. It makes my skin feel velvety and smooth. My foundation and everything else really sticks. I also love their fake lashes. I do wish they had lashes with a clear strip though!!
