i LOVE bows- i cant have enough.
so, when i saw these flats on my friend jordan's blog, i just HAD to have them!!
i went right on over to nordstrom this weekend and bought them with a giftcard i had from my bday. i love them!!!
in my constant quest to find awesome drug store products, i found this one.
i had been waiting to try a new moisturizer until i finished my old one(s) and wanted to try the olay product, since people say that its as good as some really pricey department store products.
well- i love it.
it makes my skin super smooth, and its oil free, which is totally awesome and makes me feel better about having it on my skin for 24 hours.
i just started using this product, so i cant really attest to whether it works or not yet, but my mom has been using it for months, and says that it really has improved the overall appearance of her skin.
i will do an update on this in a few months, after i have used it for awhile.
i do like the way it feels on my skin, as you are supposed to put it on under your moisturizer in the morning and at night and it is supposed to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. hmmm. we will see about that!!
tip: to get a 7 day supply (that probably will last way longer), ask about it at a lancome counter and they will give it to you. the serum is $78, so the week's supply i have for free is awesome!!
also, happy st. patty's day!!!! i made these for the office st. patty's day party. not my best work, but they taste good!!
the girls in my office have a tradition of putting a gold pendant on a necklace, holding it above a woman's (pregnant) stomach and if the the pendant swings in a circle, the baby is going to be a girl, and if it swings back and forth in a straight line, it is a boy.
apparently, you can play this game if you are not pregnant.
my boss decided to try this on me, and it was pretty amazing. the pendant moved all by itself!!!
on the some of the girls, it swings marginally, but when it was done on me, it swung wildly!!
first, the pendant swung around in an obvious circle. then, it stopped suddenly and swung back and forth!! so, apparently, i am going to have a girl and then a boy!
i have no idea what vibes my un-pregnant tummy was giving off, but it clearly works!
i love this thing!!!
my mom got herself and me one a few months ago and its GREAT.
now, i have not used the gazilion-times-more expensive clarisonic scrubber, but im gonna go ahead and make the claim that this product just as good.
one disclaimer- when my mom told me that she has to sit down when she uses it because it kind of makes her dizzy, i thought she was crazy.
SHE IS RIGHT- it totally has a dizzying effect.
so, sit down when you use it. i kind of use it like like i brush my teeth- try to focus on each area of my face for about 30 seconds, focusing on the T-Zone.
it comes with extra pads, and it says to only use each pad once, but i let it dry and definitely use each pad a few times before i throw it out.
usually, i do it after a night of beautifying- right after i use my beloved black mask!
is it anti-aging like it says? who knows, but it makes my skin as soft as a baby's tushie
i went to trader joes at lunch to do a little marketing so i didnt have to during the weekend and when i got to the checkout counter i realized i didnt have my credit card. i did something (or maybe i should say didnt do something), that even surprised myself. I DIDNT FREAK OUT. OMG. THIS IS SO NOT LIKE ME.
i quickly looked for it, then used another credit card. i think i remembered that it was probably at the bar from last night (party foul). this is something that i had never done before. i felt pretty dumb, but i was very distracted when paying my bill at the bar, so figured it had to be there.
when i got in my car, i used my fab yelp app to call the bar, where they promptly found my card.
the day progressed as a normal friday does (ie. slow), and i decided to leave a little early so i could make my 5:15 spinning class. so, i put on my lululemon outfit, and went down to the parking garage to drive home.
then, the unthinkable happened.
my car didnt start. all i wanted to do was sit down and cry DDAAADDDDDDD.
however, i did the unthinkable (2x in one day) and i DIDNT FREAK OUT.
i called AAA and they came in about 20 mins.
(while i was waiting, i called dad, clearly)
AAA came promptly, and an hour later and with $77 less in my wallet, i left the parking garage and was home in time to watch say yes to the dress in HD.
although i missed my spin class, i learned a lot about myself: i no longer need to freak out in situations like these and (gasp), everything still works out!!
moral of the story: i must be growing up!
ps- i retrieved my credit card the next morning and apparently, lots of people leave their credit card at bars, since the bar tender had to go through a stack of cards to get to mine
