Great Way to End August.

August has been pretty decent. An old friend, my best friend from the early 90s is back. The one I joked about who knows modern lingo. I’m terrible with new words and slangs. I love her filling me in she cracks me up while she does it. We ended up on chat for 5 or 6 hours which really isn’t my cup of tea but it was so fun I lost track of time. Great to hear how happy she is because she is a wonderful person through and through. We’ve been talking on a daily and its been so much fun.

I’ve kinda stepped up my eating better and taking better care of myself but really cutting back more, adding more good stuff. At one point I was too lazy to prepare my food like I used to and it showed. My skin was breaking out sometimes I would get allergic reactions from food dye or preservatives or whatever is in quick food but sometimes it tastes good and you’re like screw it–bad idea. I’m not a fan of the term you are what you eat but you could eat the best you can. I started stocking up on yogurt, nuts, tofu, and eggs…and believe it or not oil free banana chips! New to my daily rituals adding fish oil gummies and the OGX brand vitamin e shampoo(which is really,really good so I’m getting more before they discontinue it you just never know)I think I might even purchase the conditioner…!

Is everyone else prepared for the Sephora VIB sale–Im keeping my fingers crossed I get my hands on at least 3 items I have on my mind. I’m going in to the store serious mode-reading glass in tow. My family was like why so serious I was like “I have a budget and I’m going in only once I have no reason to keep going back.” More on that visit soon–and empties!



Ofcourse, They Sell Out of Kevyn Aucoin.

The one time I remember I want to purchase Kevyn Aucoin foundation, they sell out of everything that could be considered my skin tone or close to it…Sephora—first its Kate Somerville(years ago)now its the one foundation I want to try! On the brightside looks like its good stuff so I almost wonder if I should ask for it as a birthday gift or Christmas gift. I would mix it with my Juice beauty cc cream. Heck at this point I would even buy that one in the jar..but that’s sold out in my shade too. Very sad about that…

That hourglass powder looks very nice, the drunk elephant set and that youth to the people selection…if anyone knows how great they are or if they’re not for dry/sensitive or combo skin…I’d love to know!

Have You Seen the Travel Sized Goodies on Sephora?

Just as I was like Im not shopping at sephora anymore(its not their fault its a shipping issue Im pretty sure im getting the one today slaughtered too)they send you a $25 coupon. I gotta admit when someone gives me more than $10 off I will consider it but $25, I gotta start my list!

So I was looking at tiny things I can use up but also wanted to try and came across the travel sized items and wow have you seen it? They now carry the 1.7oz size of the Kate Somerville cleanser?The bite beauty gift set was incredible(didn’t buy it this time)and they had the tiny spray version of the leave in from living proof I saw on the beautyiQ channel. I was like I’d buy it if it wasn’t so….wait a minute a travel sized one? Dangerously good choices right now. I dont always want to commit to the full sizes because it turns my bathroom and room into a mess. Oh sephora, you pull me back in just when I start walking away…!
