Fast Flats

I love a pair of cute heels as much as the next girl. I cannot count the number of times I have gotten dressed to go out and put on a pair of sexy high heels to finish off my perfect outfit. Fast-forward to the end of the night, and the only thought in my head is “What the HELL were you thinking??”.  Those things, as cute and sexy as they may be, are killer on your feet. Especially if you are doing anything more than sitting for long periods of time. Enter the Dr Scholl’s For Her Fast Flats. These cute little ballet flats fold up and fit in a tiny pouch you keep in your purse, so when those feet start hurting you can bust out a pair of flats and let the night roll on.

Crazy Hair

Curly hair –I have it and it’s nuts, but I really love it!

Call it what you will (Poodle head,  Shirley Temple, Curly Fry, Krusty Lion Head, Carrot Top, Side-show Bob, Medusa, Nappyheaded Monster), curly hair is certainly a gift to embrace.  Don’t deny it–if you do, it’ll bite back.

I generally have to rotate through a combination of products/brands to get my hair in the condition I need, but recently I started trying an entire  line that I am completely diggin’.

John Freida pretty much invented products for trying to tame our beasts, but these latest few products leave my mop lookin’ real nice!  Soft, but not frizzy.  Defined, but not crunchy.

Here they are in order of when I use them…

  1. FRIZZ-EASE Curl Around Style Starting Daily Shampoo
  2. FRIZZ-EASE Curl Around Style Starting Daily Conditioner
  3. FRIZZ-EASE Curl Clearly Defined Style Holding Gel
  4. FRIZZ EASE Dream Curls Curl Perfecting Spray

The best thing about this line is the price tag.  All four can be purchased for a total of around 20 dollars at your local CVS, Walgreen’s, or grocery store.

Beauty is only $3.00 deep in your wallet

Ok, so I am a drug store troller in addition to a bargain hunter and crazy dog mom. I admit it, you can find me lurking in makeup aisles of the area drug stores on any given day. Some of you may hit up a movie or pick up a good read to get your kicks… not me. Give me a Walgreens or CVS makeup aisle… and you will see what true happiness looks like.

Recently, I have found some gems in my quests. These babies will turn your frown upside down, I tell ya. Each one of these items is like $3.00  max and badass. Cheap thrills…gotta love ’em.
