tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6 Piece Collection with Bag

be your own tarteist groupTarte is one of my all-time favorite brands, so when they launch something new and amazing, I can’t wait to do my bloggerly duty and tell the world.

A few weeks ago, Tarte gave me an exclusive sneak peek at their Miracles from the Amazon 6-Piece Collection with Bag – and even though I’m a woman with an enviable beauty arsenal, I’ve been using these products in my daily routine ever since.

That’s what I love about Tarte…so many of their products become my instant beauty besties. They’re the “how did I survive my whole life until now?” type of products. Anyway, I can finally dish on this amazing makeup set because it is now available for purchase on QVC and QVC.com. In fact, it’s QVC’s “Today’s Special Value” today. Ladies, turn this Friday the 13th into a lucky day by scoring this bag of beauty goodies. Here’s what’s in the collection:

But since my husband and I decided to cut out “wants” vs. “needs” (we are saving for our first home), I decided that I have to start doing my own nails and requested a sample of CND Vinylux to try.

My typical go-to colors are very neutral, so I decided to go for it even further by requesting brighter colors. I selected: Wildfire, Pink Bikini and Powder My Nose. I trimmed my nails, filed them and buffed them as best as I could. I then applied 2 coats of “Wildfire” and then the top coat – no base coat was required. In about 10 minutes my nails were completely dry!  And in the couple of areas where the polish got on my cuticles, I was able to peel it right off.   (more…)

Beauty Products to Keep Eczema at Bay

eczema beauty product gold bond yes to coconutI have eczema. Not all year round. Just December through March. Sometimes, it’s just a minor annoyance. Other days, I’m covered with dry patches and the itchiness is almost too much to endure.

For the past few years, I’ve been eczema-free. So I thought that maybe I’d kicked the condition…that is, until it returned with a vengeance last month.No joke – in less than a week, two tiny bumps on my upper arm morphed into a scaly, raw, inflamed rash that covered the right side of my torso, hip and upper thigh. And there’s no cure. Can you believe that BS? We can land a space probe on a moving comet, but can’t figure out a way to prevent me from scratching my own skin off? Anyway, I digress…  (more…)
