So you walk in to Sephora, all excited, and you find… 40 dollar lipgloss. WHAT? You can’t believe

I love lip glosses that come in a little tube, they're easy to keep in your jeans pocket, and if you loose htem you don't feel as bad.

your eyes! I mean 40 dollars for a lipgloss!? You walk out of the store, your head drooping, defeated. Sound like you? I know I’ve been surprised by the mind blowing prices in that store. But lipgloss is neccesary in the winter monthes, not only to keep you looking fly, but to keep your lips soft and smooth. So were do you find the best affordable lipgloss? Let’s take a walk in your local Walgreens.

Yesterday I headed down to Walgreens to get a new shampoo and conditioner, but decided I needed a new lipgloss while I was down there. I walked past the rows of covergirl, maybeline, and Lorreal, all the lipglosses were still to pricey! And then in a little rack with the big words “DEAL ALERT!” on it, I thought I might have found the one. I looked down and discovered “Squeeze’ n Shine” by jordana, for $1.99. Why not, I thought? 10 minutes later I was driving home and took off the cap to smell the lipgloss. YUM! It smelled just like candy! And it even tasted good, not nasty and sour tasting like other lipglosses can be. I think I met have found the most perfect lipgloss ever!

So shine this winter with super tasy, super shiny, super cheap lipgloss!

Uggs are the ultra comfy, super cute, shoes of the season. But with majorly big price tags, most people

The Uggs from costco are basically the same!

have found altearnitive shoes, or “fuggs”. Fuggs are basicly any shoe that is an ugg look alike. But where to find the best quality Fuggs, not to mention the least pricey Fuggs, can be a challenge. Luckily, you can learn by my experience.

The other day I was with one of my close friends Micheala. And all of a sudden I noticed what I thought to be Uggs. “Hey Micheala, where  did you buy your Uggs?” I asked, because I am a beauty and fashion fanatic, and come on Uggs are Uggs. “Oh, these aren’t Uggs, these are Fuggs, I got them at Cosco!” she replied. Costco? I mean come on, Costco? In my experience, the only things I have bought from Costco were food! But of course I just had to have a pair for myself, and with a fantastic price of only $35.00, I could afford to. And, to my surprise, they were the best Fuggs I have ever seen, let alone try on. Made with genuine australion sheep skin, the were practicly Uggs without the name!

So rock “Fuggs” with the best ones out there!

I couldn’t find the Costco uggs online, but the next time you go to Costco, just look for them, I’m pretty sure they’ll be there.

Ahhhhhhh, the holidays.  Candy, cookies, parties, and fabulous hair do’s. But sometimes fabulous hair do’s can be hard to pull off. I mean have you ever spent an hour on some fancy braided hair do only to find that it’s completely not right? I have. So here’s a simple hair do, that is still graceful, without being crazy.

  1. Make a part down the center of your head, then take 1 small section of hair from each side.
  2. Twist the sections of hair together.
  3. Now take a  smaller section of hair from 1 side and wrap that around the twisted “rope” of hair you have.
  4. Take another small section from the other side of your hair and wrap it aroung the “rope”.
  5. Secure with an elastic arounf the middle of the rope, so you can see the twisted strands.

So be graceful and not go crazy, with this easy holiday hairstyle.

I love a good deal, especcially around the holidays. But black friday just scares me to death! But everybody expects a good gift, and

Be cozy!

now I have the perfect gift for any girl you know!

Next time your down at the mall, stop at Old Navy. This saturday (and probably the next few days too, their one day sales are always more then one day) , they have cozy wool sweaters, just $10! I’m going to get one later today, so why don’t you get one too?

So  be cozy this holiday, and still have money left over!

Now that fall is gone, along with thanksgiving (by the way, you can tell me how yours was in the comment section below!), it’s time to think winter. But uh oh, if your anything like me, you haven’t even been thinking winter at all lately! And the last thing you want is to be wearing last seasons nail polish! But don’t worry you don’t have to freak out, because I’ve already found the perfect nail Milani Nail Lacquer Disco Lights 89 polish color, that will be fabulous all season!

Next time your at the your local drugstore, CVS, or Walmart, pick up a nice sparkly color. “Sparkly?”, you may ask. I thought this winter was all about the dark and drab? But in a sea of dark blues and purple, a nice sparkly color is just what you need to stand out! Try going for one that has actually sparkles in it, because other wise it’s just another shimmery nail polish, and those are so last summer!

So sparkle this winter, with sparkly nail polish
