just a few opinions…

here goes.

if your occasional zit gets you down, try burt’s bee’s blemish stick. it’s perfect. all natural ingredients and no drying or harsh ingredients or side effects. i dab the first sight of irritation and it’s dead by the next day. seriously. and i have uber sensitive skin!

lansinoh lanolin is awesome. it reminds me of a more intense aquaphor. it is also all natural {safe enough for babies to ingest}! it has it’s lovely post-natal uses, but i have also found it to be useful in other ways. for instance: my bee’s little spots of super dry skin love this stuff. also, it’s great for super chapped lips and cuticles {esp in winter} and lately, after i shave my legs {i ALWAYS get razor burn} i apply this to my leg where i know the burn will later appear. and if i do use it, no burn! just super supple legs.

next is the best performance polish i can find. sally hansen’s hard as nails extreme wear polish stays on. period. i put it on mine {and bee’s} toenails over two weeks ago and it hasn’t budged! esp on my toes, polish either chips or starts to wear off, but not this stuff. if you want color that stays, stick to the extreme wear from sally.

p.s. the color choices are great! my current is mint sorbet.

okay, if you want really good and cheap shampoo/conditioner, you have to try the suave professionals in the rosemary mint or almond shea butter. they both are great! i alternate between the two and sometimes mix and match. they smell really nice and make my hair super healthy, shiny and soft. and no build-up, just sqeaky clean!

okay, so i’m on a new mascara…again…but i have fully converted and refuse to go back to the useless wannabe’s. this not only GROWS your lashes {swear it does}, but it has that perfect dior show brush {just a smidge smaller}! it’s the perfect mascara! thank you, revlon.

random…but….adam and i are on a sugar-free-drinks-diet. and because you can only drink so much milk, tap water and crystal light…this is the best replacement! it’s really refreshing and tricks your mouth into thinking {do mouth’s think?} that you’re actually drinking something that HAS to have sugar or sucralose in it. but guess what?! NONE! so refrigerate and enjoy!

my new favorite brand/line of clothing! canvas is like ralph lauren meets jcrew. perfect, right? not only is the style fantastic but so is the quality and 100% guarantee of the garment. lands end is now owned by sears {kinda a turn off, but…} and so their policies are great! you can buy online or in some stores {only two in atl @ roswell sears and north point sears}, try it out and if you are not 100 % impressed, return it! full refund! no questions asked! the prices are comparable and the sales are amazing! not only do the prices drop soon after the new arrivals comes out, but they also have additional percentages off and then the “classifieds” are outstanding! but you’ll have to check out their website to get what i’m saying. lands end has been a great traditional/conservative brand, but their new addition is even greater! check them out asap, you won’t regret it!  canvas.landsend.com

sorry this blog had turned into a forum of product reviews…i promise to start posting more interesting and attractive topics again, soon! but until then, i hope you enjoy and for further entertainment check out my tumlr – plentyopretty.tumblr.com !

  1. I’m wearing that same exact nail polish and mascara right now! I recently got hooked on OPI polish and swear by it, but Sally Hansen X-Treme is the only thing that comes close to lasting as long… and you just can’t beat $2.50!
    I bought that mascara on a whim when it was on clearance and am so glad – best impulse purchase ever!

    I’ve been on a hunt for a new pretty-smelling shampoo that won’t put me in the poor house – thanks for the tip!

    My legs, and skin all over really, get painfully dry – especially during Utah’s harsh Winters, I found this baby oil gel that has totally changed my life. Cliche, but so true – and dirt cheap! http://www.johnsonsbaby.com/johnsons-baby-oil-gel-with-shea-and-cocoa-butter
