Give Me Some Sugar (Fresh Sugar Lip Balm)

Sephora has a wonderful birthday treat this year!


Fresh Sugar Lip Balm pairs.


I love these! They give my lips just the right amount of moisture without feeling sticky or gooey.


 I use them in the morning right before applying my lipstick or gloss and the softness lasts for hours.






The original (clear) has a pleasant  lemon taste and scent.



 The rose tinted one is a very sheer candy pink,just a blush of color,so it's not too overpowering.



What makes these unique, is the screw on cap. They stay secure in your purse or pocket. No worrying about caps coming loose and making a huge mess.


This is such a great value because the regular size is $22.00  Beauty Insiders can pick up these pairs during your birthday month at your local Sephora.

Pucker up baby!

Until next time~

Gone Wild


I love the look of a fresh manicure, but I don’t always have the time to give myself one.

I saw Sally Hansen's Salon Effects over at my local Rite Aid, and fell in love with this adorable giraffe pattern called "Queen Of The Jungle"


These come in tiny little pre packaged strips with a file for smoothing and an orange stick for smoothing back unruly cuticles. 

Cute idea, but these smelled so bad. They had a very strong chemical smell. The application was messy and wasteful. 

These aren’t shaped very well, especially for small nails like mine, and I had to cut away a great deal of the product. The strips are thin and tear easily.

For $9.99, I just felt that it wasn’t worth it. I have used other brands that were much cheaper and had a better application.

I adore the designs available, but for the money, I wouldn't use these again. It might just be the shape of my nails, but I had a really hard time applying these. 

Overall, these were not what I had expected. On a scale from 1-10 these rate about a 5 not the worst, but not the best either. 

Until next time~

Happy Fourth Of July


 A heartfelt,deep "Thank you" to all of the men and women who serve and protect our country so that we may enjoy it's freedoms.


 May you have a blessed and Happy 4th of July!


Please remember that our freedom came with a price. A price of American lives.



 Today we can enjoy so much because of those who were willing to lay their lives on the line for us.


As we are sipping lemonade,and grilling hot dogs, and enjoying time with our families,take a moment to reflect on what we are actually celebrating,and the meaning behind those fireworks.


Be a sparkler!

Until next time~
