New Obsession

You know what it is like. You get all excited to go out for a night on the town, you get all of your friends together, pick out the perfect outfit and then you spend HOURS on your makeup just to have it all melted off by the time you get in the club. I have said it before and I will say it again, I am a snob when it comes to the things I put on my face. So to spend all that money on makeup and have it melt off before the night gets started can be really frustrating! But, I have found the cure in the name of Urban Decay’s All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.

This stuff is LIFE SAVING! You mist it on over your makeup and it helps keep everything in place for 16 hours. The All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray works because it uses Temperature Control Technology. The Urban Decay website states, “this baby actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush and concealer in place – even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions. The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or all night).”

It is literally magic. The numbers are in 78% of users said All Nighter lasted the full 16 hours, 80% said it helped their makeup look better and stay on better without fading into the lines of their face, and 88% said that it was the best product they have ever tried to help keep their makeup in place.

It does all of this for $30.00 which, for me is a little pricey but the awesome thing is if you go to Ulta they usually have sample sizes for $14.00. That is the one I use.

I used this product on Halloween and it helped my makeup stay fierce all night, I just bought my own today so I am VERY excited to try it.

Can’t Stop Shopping at Target

blog-targetThere are so many things at Target that it’s just an endless amount of good finds, great products, good deals, and fun shopping!

I love that I can get things at Target from groceries to clothing and absolutely everything in between including home decor items, health and beauty products, gifts for others, and so much more. Just an example of my shopping trip today including picking up prescriptions, getting treats for my dog, picking up a pair of shoes to wear to a wedding that I’m going to this weekend, choosing a wedding gift off of a registry for said wedding, getting toilet paper and hairspray, and of course my magazine that I always pick up when I’m checking out.

Save big if you shop at Target by signing up for their RedCard and downloading the CartWheel App on your smartphone.

StumbleUpon is Such a Fun Website

suI love finding new websites to get “hooked on”. This happened to me with Pinterest (a couple visits to this site and I was suddenly spending hours a day on it). I don’t think this is necessarily a bad thing because if I’m going to be online anyway, I might as well be doing something enjoyable! It’s probably a lot cheaper for me to browse around on Pinterest than a website that involves a lot of online shopping.

 

I’m really glad I came across StumbleUpon. This is a site that allows you to choose your interests and hit the “stumble” button and be led around the web to different sites that match your interests. You can then “like” the page and save it for future reference or “dislike” it and never have to see it again!

 

Massages in Orange County for Graduation

thIt is graduation party season the top gift for grads seems to be cold hard cash, which is a great idea, what graduate does not need case? None of them that invite me to their parties that is for sure. Another great gift is gift cards and gift certificates. I love to give a graduate a gift card for Target or Walmart or something. They always have something they could use from those stores.

Another thing is gift certificates for salon and spa services for the graduate or even for weddings. Which bride does not need massages in Orange County ? Wedding and graduation season are both here and I decided to make it easy on myself and buy all my gift cards/certificates at one place. So when I get invited I already have the card to slip in an envelope and there is not last minute running around. Making life easy (easier), for myself is one thing I always appreciate.

My Fitness Pal is Great!

my fitnessI’ve been doing a really good job keeping up with my New Year’s Resolutions, which really surprises me because usually they’re out the door and forgotten about by February. One of my main goals was to lose some weight, work-out, and eat healthier. I’m not the most disciplined person in the world so I needed a little outside help for it.

I decided to sign up for My Fitness Pal and am really glad that I did.  Some of my friends tried it out in the past and had a lot of success with it. This is a website (which is also available as an app in most “app stores” for smartphones) that help track the food eaten and exercise done. You can track your weight loss overall and adjust your goals accordingly. I love this website and I think if you are wanting to eat healthier and lose weight, you should check it out!
