Friday Favorites (7/11)

1.  Radishes Until last week, I never ate radishes.  I just always knew them as the vegetable that Fraggles ate on Fraggle Rock, and that didn’t really make the seem appealing.   But for some reason, I decided to buy a pint of them when I was at the farmer’s market last week, and I’m now completely hooked.  I even made a special visit to the farmer’s market again this week for more of them. There are so many great health benefits to eating radishes.  They can help to control blood pressure, protect us from certain...

Friday favorites & a NuNaturals giveaway!

1.  Starbucks Iced Green Tea Maybe it is the summer heat, but I am just not as into coffee lately.  I’ve been drinking iced green tea like a madwoman instead though. (A special thank you to my sister for treating me twice in the past week!).  The iced green tea is so refreshing, and I might even start to make it at home to save a few bucks (although there’s just something about ordering one at Starbucks…).   2.  Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation On Tuesday evening, I had a minor accident with my PMD and ended up...

8 tips for beautiful skin (& break up with your makeup)

8 tips for beautiful skin (& break up with your makeup)

I’ve always loved makeup.  I love shopping for makeup, looking at the pretty packaging, and choosing what beautiful shade of blush I feel like wearing on a particular day. Even when I was in high school and rarely wore a lick of it, I still enjoyed reading beauty books and wandering through the makeup aisles of the drugstore. Somewhere between then and now, makeup became something that I not only enjoyed wearing but something that I felt I needed to wear to feel complete.   All of the lip products that I found in my diaper bag...

But the beauty of my shopping addiction is that I discover great products, foods, etc. that I can share with you!  So, I’ll be posting my Friday Favorites a few times a month.  I’ll still my Things I Didn’t Share posts from time to time too. OK, let’s get down to business!     1. Beach Babe Lip Balm (3 pack)  I recently won these as part of a giveaway, and I was actually kind of blown away by them.  They are...

What to Try: LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics

[Please note: This is not a sponsored post.  However, some of the products mentioned below were sent to me for consideration.]   The first time that I ever visited a LUSH store was many years ago in San Francisco.  After reading about how much celebrities loved their products, I was just dying to try them out for myself.  However, I felt very overwhelmed when I got to the store and left empty handed.  There were just so many fabulous scents, soaps, and creams, and I didn’t know what to choose! After lots of research (or...

Beauty Brand Spotlight: Raisin Face

Beauty Brand Spotlight: Raisin Face

This is not a sponsored post.  When you’re a beauty product junkie, it is tempting to constantly try new things, and no matter how much you might love something, you can always be swayed to try something new… Until something amazing comes along, such as the product I am about to introduce. A few weeks before Addison was born, I felt like an ugly, old hag (to put it mildly). I am sure the feeling was mostly caused by pregnancy hormones, but regardless of what influenced my thoughts, I desperately wanted to refresh my...
