Drugstore Find Du Jour 12.31.11

One of my guilty pleasures is trolling the aisles of drugstores for new beauty finds. I don't know why but it gives me a cheap thrill. My boyfriend makes fun of me that I can't leave Duane Reade without spending over $40 and it's true.

Anyway- my point is, I know, it's taking me a while to get to it, but I have one. My point is I found something amazing that you all should try.

It's called J.R. Watkins natural apothecary hand and body lotion in the scent Aloe and Green Tea. Im not going to lie, the first thing that attracted me was the retro looking packaging! Moving past my shallowness, It's 97.8% all natural which I love ( you can actually read all the ingredients on the back) and not tested on animals! The scent I picked up is delicious, warm but fresh an clean at the same time. Plus you all know I'm a sucker for anything with green tea.

Best of all, it was only $11 and works on dry skin like a charm with zero greasy residue. It's light but very softening. You can put it on and put your fave shirt on after without worry!

Total win in my book! Have you tried? Will you pick it up?

Jewels Du Jour 12.30.11

Even when you are wearing a not so fab outfit your accessories should always be oh-so-fab!

PS: They don't even need to be expensive!

Urban Decay Naked 2 Du Jour 12.29.11

If you are like me and already own the first version of the Urban Decay Naked palette you were probably hmming and hummming over getting the Naked 2 palette.

I first decided, NO! I absolutely do not need it. I love my first one and this is basically the same and just no. I was also a little mad they raised the price on this one. Capitalizing on success huh? I guess I don't blame them... But still!

Then I felt myself wavering and what do you know, low and behold, two weeks later I ordered it. Well what do I think?

I think I have not used my original naked palette in 3 weeks! I like the 2nd so much better. I might be biased because I love when palettes have a great black shadow in them.

Also, some of the colors in Naked 2 are just becoming HG's for me. Hello Busted and snakebite!

This palette leans a tad cooler than the original but not too cool. As I am a warm lover! Additionally the packaging is SO much better.

So do I think you need both!? Not really! But is it nice to have both? Yes! An even better yet- if you dot have the first, definitely get this one!

Did you get Naked 2? Do you love/hate? Would love to hear!

Early New Years Resolution 12.28.11

Hi all! I hope everyone has had an amazon holiday season, filled with joy, love and health.

I know, I have been a terrible blogger. However, I am going to make it up to you all and regain your faith in me as a blogger! Yes, it's true, I promise!

My New Years resolution is to blog every day in the month of January (and for the rest of this month). I have so many product reviews and things to share with you. Although I will admit some posts will be photo's of things I love.

For now I will leave you with a picture from my vacation on the beach as I fly from Palm Beach back to NYC.

Miss you all, thanks for sticking with me!
