I currently have burgundy hair which I love and my hair is fashioned into an A-Line Bob. I love my hair-color but am looking to perhaps go for a new shade this time around. My hair looks black indoors but then while I’m out in the sun the burgundy color really pops. So..should I go with something more electric like this shade of blue or pink? Or go for a midnight black/blue that looks vibrant outdoors? Help me out guys!! What direction should I go?

Stylin’ “Soccer Moms”!

Today was my son’s third soccer game. It’s Peewee soccer so just imagine a group of 4 year old’s running around in circles chasing after a ball. Adorable. And the weather was gorgeous BUT hot!! To keep my skin from frying on the sidelines, here are a couple of my budget friendly items I keep in my bag on the regs.

s1604164-main-hero-300

Supergoop is one of my most favorite sunscreen brands. It’s water-resistant and oil free so I don’t have to worry about my pores clogging up. It doesn’t have that typical chemical smell AND is moisturizing. Purchase your own bottle here.

450

I’m a huge chap-stick hoarder. And Softlips is one of my favorite brands. You can get a 2 pack at Walgreen’s for around $3 and the added sunscreen and soft vanilla scent is scrumdillyumptious!

300

I received a small sample of this and fell in love. It smells amazing and protects even color-treated hair from fading in the bright sun. As someone with burgundy hair this definitely comes in handy. It’s not drying and has sunflower seed oil for added moisturizing benefits. Purchase your own citrus-scented spray here.

Walmart Beauty Steals

I love, love, love Walmart for a few reasons. Yes, they can be a bit of a controversial store (and usually I prefer online shopping here compared to visiting the actual brick and mortar location) but when it comes to beauty steals they usually can’t be beat. Here are just a few of my favorite things from this ginormous company.

 

softsoap-body-butter-coconut-scrub

This body scrub smells scrumptious and the soft scrubby beads are a devilish delight! Retails for $2.97 here.

A standard classic and still ridiculously affordable. This gets my lashes luscious looking in no time flat and all for around $5. You can pick some up here.

 

2246784

This is my absolute go-to lacquer liner for super defined eyes. I must admit, I have a slight eyeliner obsession. I prefer to play up my eyes rather than any other feature so I am always on the lookout for a seriously great eyeliner. This one fits the bill and for less than the cost of a movie ticket. Stays on strong and doesn’t smudge. Win-win. Purchase your own here.

This fragrance is iconic for me. My stepmother would keep a small bottle of this on her bathroom mirror shelf. I loved smelling the fruity yet woodsy apple scent. It’s nostalgic and always brings back sweet memories. And Walmart has had the best price point on this by far, at around $20 for a small bottle. Evoke your own memories of this scent here.

While this is not by any means an exhaustive list of every beauty product I love at Walmart, it gives you a good idea of what I like and what, for me, beauty on a dime is all about. No matter what your budget is, beauty is about self-expression and most importantly self-love. Keep staying beautiful lovelies!

Guess who’s back? (Back again!)

Hey y’all. For those who still might follow me (and if you don’t, I totes forgive you) I’m back and more than ready to begin this beauty journey again with all of you folks. Be prepared for more beauty hauls, reviews, product giveaways and wishlists from me. I cannot wait to start blogging again. It’s been a long few years. During my absence, I’ve had a son (now four) and am hoping to have a rewarding career in retail (I know…I’m crazy right?!).

Let me know what you guys have been up to!! I’ve missed you and this blog like crazy and am so excited to be back!!

With much love,

Product Review: Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil

Hello lovely readers. Sorry for the abscence. I have been busy with life and getting my eBay store up and ready. Shameless plug but feel free to click here to check it out! It’s chock full of designer jeans, cute shirts, kid clothing and more… all for under retail value! =P

Anywho, with that being said.. a few weeks ago I was the lucky winner of Lucky Magazine LuckyBreaks contest!! I won a prize package totaled to be worth around $200!! Needless to say I was super stoked. One of the prizes I received was something I have never tried before called Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil.

Doesn’t it just look gorgeous!? I’ve never used dry oils before and was super excited to try this. It says multi-usuage so I used it on everything!! Hair, skin, cuticles, body, etc etc.

Pros:

The smell is unlike anything I’ve ever smelled before. I can’t even begin to describe it to you but I shall try. To me, it smelled somewhat like coconut and sunscreen with floral undertones and a coffee note. Weird, I know. But honestly.. unless you use this.. you cannot even BEGIN to imagine the pleasantness of the smell. The bottle is gorgeous, sleek and luxurious and sexy. LOVE. The feel of it on the skin is amazing. It literally made my skin uber-soft and almost glowy! On hair, it felt silky as long as I didn’t overdo it and turn it into a giant greaseball.

Cons:

Definitely pricey!! The size I received retails for about $45 but you *can* get a 1.7 oz bottle for around $29. The good thing about either sizes is that a little bit of oil really does go a looooooong way. Also, be careful when using multiple times. Since it’s an oil your hands will obviously be slick until it drys. Careful when picking up the bottle as it could easily slide out of your hands and break. *cry*.

Final Score: 5/5

Despite the price, I still firmly believe that while not the cheapest of dry oils out there, it is still a good value because you only need a little drop to get amazingly smooth skin. The smell is great, the bottle is sexy, and my skin has never felt smoother. Seriously in LOVE and definitely my product of the month.

For purchase, click here. Trust me, you won’t regret it!! If you have any other dry oil recommendations let me know in the comments. As always, stay beautiful!

Sorry for the absence!!

Hey lovelies. I am so sorry for the absence lately. My son has been keeping me mighty busy and I can’t say I haven’t been enjoying it!! But I promise that more entries are coming your way!! Be on the lookout for my next Coupon-ing 101 Part 2 entry as well as reviews for Revlon’s Photo Ready Primer and much more! Thanks for the understanding and hope y’all are staying cool in this triple digit weather!!
