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...

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)

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...

You all know that I am a fan of trying out new things.  Alright, I also just really like to shop. 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...

Mommy fashion & beauty essentials

(Please note: I received the Links of Necklace for free, but I have not been paid to write this post.  All opinions below reflect my own true thoughts and opinions.)   If you’re a fellow mommy, your clothes are probably also covered in unidentifiable stains most of the time, and you most likely don’t have the luxury of getting dressed to the nines every single day. I’ve said it time and time again, but I still think that it is important for us to take care of ourselves and look polished- mostly because it makes us feel...

Things I’m loving lately

First order of business… I am still pregnant.  This baby girl is awfully cozy in my belly!  Like I keep on saying though, I know that she’ll come out when she is good and ready. And now onto all of the things I’ve been loving lately… I actually had a really difficult time narrowing down the list this month.  I’ve been using some great products!     1.  IT Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+ You might recall that I mentioned this product in my 5-minute face routine, but I just had to bring it up again...
