Have you started your holiday shopping yet? I’m really hit and miss when it comes to preparing in advance for holiday gift giving. I like to find the perfect gift that speaks to me about the person it is intended for. So, sometimes I find an item all the way back in September…and sometimes it takes until the week before Christmas.
One place I know I can always turn to for my holiday shopping is Marshalls. I am sure most of you don’t find this to be a surprise, as Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods pretty much dominate my home decor, my wardrobe, and my life in general. Marshalls is also (surprise surprise!) one of my all time favorite locations to search for holiday gifts. I can discover brand name, awesome gifts at prices lower than retail. Who wouldn’t be on board with that???
It’s the start of yet another work week….are you ready?
It has been a little over 2 months since I traded in my work-at-home style for the new gig. For a gal who enjoys selecting wardrobe pieces in the morning, it’s been a nice change to be forced out of my uniform of yoga pants and tee shirts into a more professional look. However, that does not mean I am thrilled about the process of getting ready every day. Thank goodness I’m a morning person! I actually don’t wake up any earlier than I did when I was working from home (yes, I still woke up before 6am even when I didn’t have to go in to an office. I’m very strange.), but now my morning is devoted to showering, hair styling, and makeup before running out the door.
I am always looking for tips, tricks, and products that will allow me to speed up my beauty routine in the morning. I always aim to look put together, but not made over. Professional, polished, and natural is the goal. Today, I wanted to share a video tutorial, courtesy of Almay and Kate from The Small Things blog. She’s sharing a few affordable and approachable makeup products to help you look put together for a work day – enjoy!
Products for this post were provided by Revlon. All opinions are my own.
Do you have a “secret weapon” when it comes to makeup and beauty products? Is there an item you just can’t leave home without putting on? For me, it just so happens to be mascara. I apply foundation, blush, or other makeup items to my face in the morning, but without a few coats of mascara my eyes just don’t stand out. Lengthening and volumizing my lashes helps to make me look bright, awake, and perfectly polished. It makes everything come together, even on those days when I just don’t feel my best!
However, selecting the right mascara for my makeup collection can be quite the process. I am notorious for purchasing a new brand and new style of mascara each and every time I require a new tube. I recently began using Revlon’s Lash Potion™ Volume and Length Mascara, and I might just be hooked once and for all.
I don’t know about you, but the weather right about now is at the height of humidity season. For me, it’s my least favorite time of the year (living in Florida). The moisture outside is potent: walking outdoors in the morning makes your skin feel a bit sticky, your face gets shiny, and your hair gets crazy.
As a long-time Floridian, I have discovered some products over time that have helped me to battle the season of shine. Today I wanted to share three of them that I absolutely cannot live without right about now:
