Treasure Hunt

My tipsy girl AK has often commented on how I find cool things in the most random of places. Well, what I am about to reveal to you absolutely proves her right on the money. In the midst of Payless surrounded by cute new spring sandals and bargain boots, I zoned in on a small section of accessories that were to die for!

  2. Payless, Chunky Cabashan Earrings

5 Deals on Basics Under $5 Dollas

5 Bucks! 5 big ones! 5 Smackaroos! 5 greenbacks! These are some mighty fine staple items for just a teeny tiny price tag. I’ve personally tried all of these items and can vouch that they are awesome squared. Get prepared for a bargain induced coma!

  1. Walmart, Faded Glory Organic Stretch Cotton Tanks $4 each- These are a great staple tank top that I buy every year. Perfect for under a cardi, over a tee for some cute layering or just alone on those hot summa’ days.
  2. Forever21, Basic Fitted Tee $3.50 each- I have been buying these tees for YEARS and they actually hold up remarkably well. Great basic and I love that they are made longer for us long torso gals and the stretch helps them keep their shape all day long.
  3. Walmart, Lace Tanga Panties $3.70 each- I’m not trying to be all up in yo face with my undergarments, but I’d be doing you an injustice not to tell you that these are the bomb. And pretty damn cute too, if I don’t say so myself.
  4. Old Navy, Womens Flip Flops– $3.50 each- I feel like I’m preaching to the choir here about these, but they really are a staple in my book. I end up with about a bazillion of these each summer and they are so cheap that I can replace them every year and think nothing of it.
  5. Forever21, Polished Hoops $3.80 – Being that I feel naked without any earrings on, these are a savior on the mornings when I don’t wanna give much thought into anything. And um, UNDER.4.BUCKs. Need I say more??

Der Daily Beauty Staples

I don’t always wear the same make-up every day, like a lot of my Tipsy girls do, but I can tell you that I have noticed that when I am in a hurry… I reach for my tried and true staples. Here they are.. the best of the best from a drug store make-upaholic.

  1. Maybelline, Expert Wear Blush in Apricot Flush- the perfect pinched my cheeks flush I need to keep from looking like a zombie and it seems to stay on all day.
  2. Covergirl, Lash Exact Mascara in Black- This is my daily mascara. It’s so clean and doesn’t flake or clump at all.
  3. Maybelline, Superstay Silky Foundation – I saw this foundation used on Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style ( um, sad about that cancellation BTW) and so I had to try it out.  It’s awesome! Stays on all day and is light as a feather.
  4. Maybelline, Experwear Single Eyeshadow in Creme De Cocoa- Neutral and slightly shimmery and easy to wear or blend with other colors.
  5. Covergirl, Outlast Smoothwear Eyeliner in Espresso- goes on so smooth and stays on like no other.
  6. Hardcandy, Honeymoon Peach Blush– I pop one sweep of this over my cheekbones, on top of my regular blush.  This is a recent find and I don’t know how I ever lived without it.
