Wish List: Sam Edelman Adena Shoes

Product Review: Blinc Mascara

I have always had issues with mascara. Either I am allergic or they are messy. For a couple of years I have been using the Maybelline Colossal , then I started using the Maybelline The Falsies. Both worked fine but were messy and I have to put on layers to get the look I love. In this month's Birchbox I received a sample of Blinc Mascara. I was scared to try it due to allergies, but I took the risk once I read that it was non-irritating. I have been wearing it almost everyday. My eyes do no get watery when applying and I do not need to apply make-up remover to remove it! How so? Well you see, the mascara creates little tubes around each lash, it then binds the lashes so that it won't run, smudge, clump or flake even when you rub your eyes. My eyelashes look thicker and longer than ever without feeling as if it's being weighed down by product. Removing it is as easy as washing your face with warm water. The tubes slid right into your hands with no raccoon eye mess. Its a little pricy for mascara but totally worth it and strongly recommended.

Current Obsession : by Oscar De la Renta

I have a crazy obsession with De La Renta pieces. When I saw this dress , the same exact warm feeling came up on me as when I first spotted the dress that is on the bottom back in 2005. Yes I remember the year because the dress seemed to be in every publication I picked up and I could not stop thinking about it. I can just tell this dress is going to be a big hit.

From the Daily Love

"Be easy about it. Don't rush into things. Savor them more. Make more plans and be more deliberate and specific about the plans you are making, and in all you do, let your dominant intent be to find that which pleasures you as you imagine it. Let your desire for pleasure and your desire for feeling good be your only guiding light. As you seek those thoughts that feel good, you will always be in vibrational harmony with the Energy that is your Source. And under those conditions, only good can come to you -- and only good can come from you."

Review: Miss Jessie's Rapid Recovery Treatment

Used this Miss Jessie's on my hair for the second time today. The first time I tried it was the Saturday I was stuck at home because of Hurricane Irene. I did not follow directions fully at that time. You are supposed to leave it in your hair for 30 minutes while in the shower. The heat from the shower is what makes it work. With my luck, we did not have enough warm water that day. So I wasted some product. Yesterday I tried it again and my hair was more silky and shiny than usual. My curls bounced back with more definition and let me not forget how great my hair smelled. I got this travel sized tub at Ricky's for about $8.99 and can be used up to three times (once a week). The big tub is $50.00 . I will absolutely invest in the big tub for next time.

5 favorite links this week :

  • As I was job hunting on craig's list earlier today, I came upon an ad for a Social Media Manager for Pretty Padded Room. This sight offers online therapeutic services for a low price at anytime. 
  • All you Zara fans out there. You can now shop online ! 
  • Watched a great Documentary film on the Palladium Boots site called Tokyo Rising featuring my big  time crush Pharrell Williams. Tokyo Rising is divided into five different parts touching on the subject of 3/11 .
  • As I was browsing through some blogs , one that stuck out was Dear Photograph. This is a place for people to submit "a picture of a picture from the past in the present ". Did I just confuse you? Awwww. You'll get it once you visit the site.
  • Who said big girls can't dress hot ? Sakina from Saks in The City shows you how it's done!

Birchbox Goodie and Review : June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Masque

I received the June Jacobs Papaya Purifying Masque about a month ago and have been using it once a week. I still have some left in this 0.5 fl oz sample from Birchbox. I massaged it into my face and left it on for about 15 minutes while I got some work done (recommended time is 3-10 minutes), then washed it off with warm water in the shower (kill two birds with one stone) . My face felt amazingly soft (like a baby's behind) every time I used it. This product runs for about $63 dollars. Would I buy it? Yes, after having money left over from paying my bills, and putting a designated amount into my savings account. The smell is hypnotizing. I feel like I am on vacation every time I open it. I definitely recommend it.
