Drugstore Haul - Joe Fresh

Usually I try to avoid Real Canadian Superstore, it's over crowded, poorly laid out, and generally more of a head ache than it's worth. But I NEEDED to try out the new Joe Fresh Makeup. So I took a deep breath and went in!

Man am I glad I did! This is makeup is such a good deal! I picked up two eye shadows for $4 each, a blush for $6 and an eye brow powder duo for $6! Along with the Maybelline gel eyeliner, in black (I can never find black!) These products are all comparable to a high end brand version as well.

10 Uses for Aloe Vera You Probably Didn't Know

I touched briefly on aloe vera in my sun burn post, but did you know that aloe vera has more uses than relieving the pain of that nasty burn?

Eve Pearl Haul & Review

I have gig doing makeup for a wedding coming up and I realized that my foundations in my kit were both old, and very limited. So I picked up the Eve Pearl Pro Trios Pro Kit.

'Tis the season for sunshine and the great out doors. Unfortunately we can feel the negative effects of the sun if we don't protect ourselves. I have happen to encounter such events this last weekend.
We went out to the lake and I had just got a new pair of shorts and was very excited to get some rays on my legs, that never seem to tan no matter what. So all day, I layed in the sun, basking in it's warmth. After dinner I realized I had some redness on the tops of my knees, I thought at first this was from crossing my legs for long periods of time. Nope, the beginning of a nasty burn.
