Cyber Monday! My Favorite Websites for Beauty, Fashion, and Savings!

With today being Cyber Monday, I decided to do a quick post on just some of my favorite places to shop online.  Feel free to click on the names to go to their site.

When it comes to beauty/cosmetics, I have a few.

Ulta

Every time I go into Ulta, I feel like a kid in a candy store for the first time.  I literally walk every aisle and spend a good 2-3 hours in the store.
They’re having their Cyber Monday Sale so head over there to get some great deals!!

Mary Kay

Now, Y’all know that Mary Kay has been around forever!  They have amazing products.  I personally love their facial cleansers.  I also love the fact that it empowers the average to upper class women and men to be able to run their own successful business.  They can do it on the side/part-time along with their regular corporate jobs or run their Mary Kay business full-time.
What is your favorite product from Mary Kay?

Sephora

Need I say more about Sephora?
It’s just like Ulta to me, I spend so much time in this store that the associates know me by name!
Plus I love the fact that you can get samples to take home with you to try out before purchasing the full product.

Now on to fashion.
My clothing styles varies depending on my mood, where I’m going and with whom I’m going with.
When I’m at home, I’m comfortable in my PJ’s and I totally fine with staying in my PJ’s all day with my kids.
My daughter is the same size as me, so she basically wears all my clothes.  I just have one rule…….. I WEAR IT FIRST!
Does anyone else have to go through this like me?

HOT TOPIC

Get some great deals on print t-shirts or whatever you fancy.
I normally just get the print t-shirts here, like my Maryln Monroe shirts.

BODY CENTRAL

I get tons of hipster, as my daughter says, clothing here.  From jackets, jewelry, shirts, pants, socks, etc.
Now, to me, I always get a size bigger just because after I wash them, they tend to shrink.  They are reasonably priced so that’s what I found that works out best for us.

When it comes to my smell goods for my home, office, and automobile; I turn to Gold Canyon

Gold Canyon

These are HANDS DOWN the best on the market.  Just like Mary Kay, Gold Canyon is also a home-based business for women and men.
They have candles, tealights, wick-less products such as Pod Warmers, Diffusers, Auto sprays, linen sprays, Homeology “Go Green” home cleaners, etc, etc, etc…..the list goes on.
With the candles, you will not have those wasted wax all along the walls of your jars.  They burn evenly and clean.

When it comes to everyday products, I go to my Coupon Guru.

MyCouponingLife

I’ve learned so much from her with saving money on my everyday need purchasing.  With me being a single mother with two young kiddos, I need to save as much money as possible.
This website has a mega coupon database and she posts consistently to keep us updated on deals.

Well, I hope y’all have a HAPPY CYBER SHOPPING MONDAY!!

November Beauty Empties

20131201_081649-1

Can you believe it’s already December?!Where has the time gone?
It’s time for my November empties!

First up is…….
20131130_072912
Hypnotic Poison by Dior.
My FAVORITE perfume!  I can not go without this perfume.  Once I ran out, I went and bought me a new bottle.  This is my signature/holy grail perfume.  It retails for $98 for a 3.4 oz’s.  It’s so worth it!
If you haven’t already tested this out yet, next time you see it at the counter, you must give it a go and let me know what you think.

It’s described as:
Mysterious and mesmerizing, extravagant and bewitching, Hypnotic Poison is a magic potion for modern times. Audacious and profoundly feminine, the fragrance is an unsettling harmony, a fusion of contrasting olfactory facets.

Notes:
Bitter Almond, Caraway Spice, Sambac Jasmine, Cinnamon, Tuberose, Vanilla, Musk, Mosses, Jucarunda Wood.
Style:
Hypnotizing. Extravagant. Bewitching.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment 4.2 fl oz

I received a sample in one of my Ipsy monthly beauty bags a few months back and fell in love with it ever since.
It came at a perfect time too.  I just had my naturally dark filipina hair dyed and highlighted to honey blond/light brown.  So, naturally I needed to make sure I take care of my hair and this is perfect for my long strands.

It’s described as:

Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic hair oil perfect for all hair types and is especially beneficial to dry, damaged hair.

  • Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
  • Hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
  • Natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
  • Reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%The last place I purchased this was at CVS and at that time they were having a Buy One Get One for half off.  You can also get them at the Macadamia website and at Target.
    FYI, at Target they are having the Buy One Get One for 50% off NOW!

Olay Silk Whimsy Cleansing Body Wash with Rose Extract & Almond Oil 700 ml’s
I love this stuff!  The fragrance and silkiness is heavenly in a nice warm bath or shower.

It’s described as:
Awaken your senses with the deep cleansing and fresh scents of Olay Cleansing Body Wash. Unlike regular soap, Olay Cleansing Body Wash won’t dry your skin, leaving it fresh, beautiful, and more hydrated. Bring home specialty-brand indulgence at half the price* with Olay Cleansing Body Wash.

For my ever so changing hair needs…
Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Complete Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
For some reason, every now and again my hair goes through a strange stage when I literally feel like my scalp is like a snake shedding it’s skin.  It’s not the normal dandruff stuff, its big chunks of my scalp and it’s soooo embarrassing!
One of my life-long bestest friends Veronica from MyCoupoiningLife suggested I go out and get this, and of course she had a coupon for me to save some money.
I went out and purchased it and have used it ever since.
It retails around $5 and you can normally always find a coupon to save some money.

It’s described as:
Specially formulated to deeply nourish and help eliminate dandruff symptoms, while leaving hair strong & beautiful. Made with Nutrium 10™, an advanced moisture complex of vitamins and nutrients.

20131130_072722
Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Hair Conditioner

I’ve had this for a while because I like to switch up my hair care needs.  Macadamia Oil is the big trend when it comes to hair care and this was an inexpensive conditioner.  I really didn’t notice a difference in my hair from using this but I didn’t want to just throw it away and waste my money.
It’s described as:
Drench your strands in an ultra-moisturizing luxurious conditioner infused with nutrient rich macadamia oil to instantly hydrate and smooth parched, fry hair while exotic sugar cane extract and bamboo extract soften and mend split ends for a luscious, vibrant mane with brilliant shine.

20131130_072753

Skintimate Moisturizing Shaving cream Extra Gentle

I absolutely LOVE this for shaving my legs.
Of course with my life-long Bestie Veronica at MyCouponingLife, she turned me onto this too.  She always has coupons for this.
It makes my legs feel so soft and smooth after I shave.  I seriously can’t help but feel on my legs after I get out of the shower or bath.
It’s infused with Vitamin E & Soy, but really all I care about is how my legs feel afterwards.
It’s a MUST BUY.

Loreal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray

This extra strong hairspray has a micro-diffusion technology humidity protection formula which is a must for me being that I live in the capital state of humidity.  It holds strong yet it doesn’t flake out with those white little flakes everywhere.

It’s described as:

Elnett Satin is the legendary hairspray of choice for red carpet events and cover photo shoots. Its micro-diffuser spray offers a clean, soft shiny finish. So fine, it disappears at the stroke of a brush. So strong, its hold lasts all day.

20131130_072815
Garnier Mosture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream
(Normal/Combo Skin)

This is a refreshing moisturizer face gel-cream that has a light cooling cucumber scent.  I used this throughout the summer and now.  I use it after I wash my face in the morning and before bed.
It just soaks into your skin leaving a lovely scent.  It locks in moisture and is Oil Free.  Which is what I need for my combo skin type.

20131130_072735

bigsexyhair Weather Proof hair spray

I received this in one of my previous Ipsy monthly beauty bags.
Just like my Loreal Elnett Satin hairspray, this did not disappoint.  So, this is another hairspray that is on my MUST HAVE list.

It’s described as:

A high-performance humidity resistant spray that contains polymers that, when sprayed on hair, create a shield of protection against humidity. It is perfect for keeping blowouts, updo’s and curls from collapsing due to climate conditions. This spray is the last step before walking out the door.

20131130_072650

Neutrogena Shampoo anti-residue formula

I use this weekly to get all of the leftover hair product residue out of my hair.
My hair feels so light after I use this.
I also had my 13-year-old daughter use this.  She is constantly using tons of products in her hair.
Prior to me making her use this, when she flat ironed her hair in her room, I could literally smell all the products in her hair burn throughout the house.  I don’t even know how much left over products was in her hair.
I was so fed up with the nasty burning smell, I made her jump in the shower one day and had her use this.
When she finished in the shower, she was a new child!  When she dried her hair and straightened it, she couldn’t stop flipping her hair everywhere!  I didn’t even notice that she was flat ironing her hair because I couldn’t smell that nasty scent.
I am so grateful for this product!  She now uses it weekly.

Last but not least…..

U by kotex sleek tampons

Didn’t see this one coming, did ya.
Now all child-bearing aged females goes through the monthly.
I love how these are very protective and saves us from those ever so embarrassing moments.  They are super cute and small enough to tote around in your purse, pocket, or even in your evening clutch if you’re out on the town.

Well Dolls, this wraps up my November Empties.

As Always, Thank You for stopping by and reading my posts.  I hope you continue too and Share the Love with your friends and family.

Colgate Healthy Teeth

Colgate Slim Soft toothbrush

Colgate Slim Soft toothbrush

we all love healthy white clean teeth that makes our smiles stand out from the crowd.

Recently,  I received a box from @Influenster to try out this awesome new toothbrush. They also sent me some toothpaste and mouthwash to go along with it. You can’t beat that at all.

so I gave it two weeks now I am doing my review on it.I have always use Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste, just because I’ve always love them. Well to my surprise this little things have the tiniest softest bristles in a toothbrush that you will ever find. No other toothbrushes that are soft, you don’t think they will do the job right. This one you can tell that it is cleaning all of the little areas in between your teeth, along the gum line and making it nice and smooth. As you all may know I am a coffee addict. Sometimes when I drink coffee, for some reason the grim just sticks to my teeth and has that nasty feeling. Now if only Colgate can make mini to-go Slim Soft toothbrushes that are just like this brand that I can toss into my purse, throughout the day after I eat and drink that would be so awesome.

Now I will not automatically throw away my old toothbrushes just because I have this new one. With the old ones I can clean with them as in the corners of the outside of the bathtub, any little area that has a grime inside and out, I can go ahead and use it to scrub those off. There are endless ways you can use your old toothbrushes without automatically tossing them in the garbage.

Now I went to the store to see if I can purchase some more that way I have back up for myself. But I did not see any on the shelves so that is how new the toothbrushes are. So once you see them on the shelves go ahead and grab one, try it out, and tell me what your thoughts are on the toothbrush.

When you go out and buy you a new toothbrush, what do you automatically do with your old toothbrush. Maybe I can get some ideas from y’all and use it in those ways as well.

So now that my teeth are nice,healthy, clean,white, shiny and smooth, I am totally enjoying this new toothbrush. It’s crazy how it just the little things in life can get you so excited. Especially if you have your special person, honey, husband, boyfriend, and bosses that you have to be around to talk to, you want your teeth looking the best that they can be. With this you do not have to have any doubt in your mind that it is not working.

if you also receive this toothbrush please let me know what your thoughts are.

also don’t forget to subscribe, comments, share, like, or just give me a quick hello.

September Favorites

September Favorites

My September Favorites

I can’t believe September is coming to an end already!

Here are my September Favorites!

To start off, Urban Decay’s Vice 2 palette.  OMG Urban Decay has outdone themselves with this one!  I’m loving EVERY color that is in here!  The color payoff on each and every color is amazing.  They are so easy to blend and you don’t have to use a lot of product on your eyelids. It is a MUST HAVE for any makeup lover! 20 AMAZING shades for only $59.

My next favorite are the EOS lip balms. I always wanted to know what all the hype was about the little round egg-shaped balms. they do look super cute. They have several flavors for only about $2.99.  When I start putting on my makeup for the day, I start off with this to make sure my lips are nice and hydrated.   I catch myself putting this on throughout the day cause it’s just so soothing for my lips. They are another MUST HAVE especially for the fall season.  They’re also a good stocking stuffer for the Christmas season. Go out and get some! You can buy them individually or in packs.

My last two items are from the same brand.

Macadamia’s Deep Repair Hair Masque & Heating Oil pump.

As you may, I changed my hair color to Honey Blond.  So with putting my hair through that process,  I’m making sure that I take care of my hair from the damage of coloring it.  I absolutely love the smell of these products and how they have been maintaining the health of my strands.  They are quite on the expensive side but they do the job and my hair is most definitely worth it.  They also have the spray, shampoo, conditioner, dry shampoo spray and many more, but these are my two favorites.

So there are my September Favorites!

I have my September empties coming soon.

Until then, Stay beautiful,  gorgeous,  and healthy!
