The first on this list are a couple of products from Avon. My mom ordered them for me when she placed her order and I have been using them constantly. The first is a brow gel and shadow set. It comes with some brow wax and a dark eyeshadow powder. I wasn't sure how effective this product would be, but it works really well! I was so impressed with the quality and ease of use. The other product there? An Avon eyeliner pencil. The great thing about this? It has a sharpener inside the actual cap. So every time you twist the cap back on you automatically sharpen it. An always sharp eyeliner pencil. Perfect for when I am in a rush or on the go. Love!
Next up? A few Betsey Johnson items. Believe it or not, I actually picked these up from the arts and crafts store, Michaels. There were these little baskets full of adorable Betsey stuff (for so cheap!) that I could not resist. I ended up picking up a super cute plastic cup and two plastic zippered pouches. The cup is surprisingly sturdy. I have packed it away for now but cannot wait to use it! As for the zippered pouches, they would be perfect to throw makeup into your purse for the day. But I have actually been using them as a little clutch when I go out for something quick. Lightweight, cute, and easy to use. What more do you need?
While I was at Michaels (shopping for wedding stuff. Fun, fun, fun) I also came across these fake flowers. They were buy three get one free which was of course tempting. But what really sealed the deal was the fact that they came in leopard print! I have a serious addiction for all things leopard print, so these basically had to be in my life. I meant to pack them as soon as I got home since I am trying to pack as much up now as I can....but I just couldn't do it. They were too beautiful! I wanted to enjoy them for as long as possible. Right now they are sitting on my dresser and they make me smile every time I look at them.
I have a thing about scents. The right fragrance can totally turn my day around! Which is why I like to spray things around my room every now and again. There is something about a gorgeous scent that just makes you feel good! One my recent favourites comes from Sonia Kashuk. I picked up this little set from Target before it closed down and I am obsessed. Every other day it seems, I spray some of the perfume around my room or wear some of the lotion. It is like an instant mood booster. Floral, pretty, and feminine....I absolutely adore this.
The little things are powerful. Just as powerful as big moments and major life events. That is why I am trying to focus on them as they come. And hey - just writing this post made me happy. Score one for the little moments.
