Product Faves

Are you a product junkie or do you like to stick to stuff you know?  I tend to stick to products I know/have used for years.  I love trying new products from time to time but with sensitive skin, I have to be careful with that.  Below are some of my favorites and also a couple new things I have tried recently.


Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Enduringly Divine & Comfortable Makeup

Love this foundation.  It goes on super smooth and is very light but also provides great coverage.


Moroccan Oil

I have been using this for maybe a year now and love how it makes my hair feel and smell. 

Clinique Lash Building Primer

I think a lash primer is a must.  It makes your lashes look fuller and also your mascara will last 4x longer!

Booth's Ginger Sugar Body Scrub

I recently picked this up from Ulta and love it.  I have always liked a similar scrub from Origins but at under $7, I think I will be using this one from now on. Love this scent and the way it makes my skin feel.


OPI French Quarter for your Thoughts

Loving this color for Fall/Winter!  I use ORLY Won't Chip top coat and it keeps my nails from chipping for about a week.


Dolce & Gabana Light Blue

Great scent if you do not like heavy perfumes!  Love the light smell.

alba Papaya Mango Body Cream

This is also a new product I recently picked up at Whole Foods.  My skin gets very dry in the Fall but this is keeping it moisturized and also smells great.

Clinique High Impact Lip Colour in Red-y To Wear

Recently picked this red up for the Holidays and love the pop of color!

WS Glass Hurricane

I'm back with another Pinterest project!  Can you tell I am addicted?  Anyone else?  This one is super easy. I saw this post on pinterest about William Sonoma Glass Hurricane's ($58 each!!) and how this blogger DIY'd them by items she found at Dollar Tree.  So, I went to my local Dollar Tree and found all the items that I needed and purchased 3 of each item below.



Remove the tags and try not to stab yourself with a razor blade like I did. Then put some hot glue around the rim of the candlestick and stick it to the bottom of the hurricane.


Then take your white candle and stick it in the hurricane so it will look like this:


Next I went outside and found some pretty yellow and brownish leaves from our yard and placed them in between the candle and the hurricane.  I actually removed two of the bases so there would be variation in height but they can easily be added back if I decide to move then or change them out for Christmas. 


I love how they turned out and they also look great with my Target Table Runner.  AND, I only spend $9 + tax for ALL the supplies!  Not bad compared to $58 EACH for the William Sonoma version!
