Is it cold? No…it’s hot

Is it cold?  No…it’s hot

That’s the weather here in Texas right now.  Wake up…its chilly.  By lunch time…you’re sweatin’.

It’s sad when your children wake up in the morning, step outside to feel the 60 degree air and scream in terror “IS IT CHRISTMAS?”  Like Santa is really ready for Christmas??

And yes, that is a true story.  They thought it was Christmas…in September because the temperature dropped below 90 degrees.

We really never know how to dress but I do know:

I have alot of tank tops.

I own a boyfriend cardigan in every color under the sun.

I wear flip flops year ’round.

I love my 7 jeans.

And I go crazy over cheap jewelry.

Here is what my go-to outfit consists of:

Comfy casual

My favorite jeans…a plain tank top…bright scarf…fun cardi…great, cheap jewelry…and flip flops.

I carry a big bag that holds only 2 of my things, my phone and wallet…the rest of the space belongs to a 2 year old’s goldfish, trucks, and Buzz Lightyear and 8 year old’s gum, Justice magazine, and fancy water bottle.  Can you feel my pain?

You can find a super cute cardigan like the one above at Target.  Who doesn’t love Target?

A bright hot pink scarf and these fabulous ankle boots at Forever 21 for your date night with your hubby.

I think you deserve to buy yourself something fun today…because it’s Tuesday and you’re fabulous.

And there are only 60 days left til Christmas.

Love ya friends!

Meet Stila

Meet Stila

Oh Stila…where have you been all my life?

I have extremely sensitive skin and foundation typically makes my skin act like its a 13 year old hitting puberty.  I’ve tried the good, the bad, and the ugly…and nothing works.  Also, living on a pretty tight budget makes me very conscious of the money I spent on things for myself…can you feel my pain?

I read about Stila’s new foundation, One Step.  Worth a try?  Sephora gives free samples of their products so why not…

A quick drive to Sephora and I left with a sample size in my big ol’ purse.  I went straight to the mirror, dabbed Stila on my face…and the angels started singing!  My skin looked like a Photoshopped picture straight outta Cosmo!! It is so lightweight and fluffy…like caramel mousse.

I was in love with Stila…but not the price tag…$44.  Yicks!  Rather than running out and buying a bottle, I used the sample…til it was gone.  Empty.

And when there was nothing left, I absolutely, 100% did NOT drop a little water in the container, stir it around with a Q-tip, and get a couple more uses out of it.  Nope, not me

But, after saving my last dollar…I splurged on myself and bought a shiny, pretty bottle of Stila One Step makeup.  I love it.  It is magic.  Kinda like that time I removed the SOLD from that dresser I bought…ahhh, pure magic.

What’s the moral of this story?  Take time for you and make yourself feel pretty. It’s worth every penny!

Have you ever seen a color that is so striking that you wanted to wrap it around you like a blanket? I have searched hi and lo for the perfect shade of nail polish for fall. Everything is too brown, too black, too blue, or just not right. I found the perfect shade yesterday, Rimmel London steel grey! The price makes it that much better at $3.79 a bottle. The brush is flat on both sides and the consistency is great. This is my new fall must have.
