Learning to Paint (Nail Designs)!

I have something to share with you.

My daughter LOVES getting her nails done. And one of her favorite things is going to the nail salon and getting her nails painted with super fun designs. But that costs money(especially since it’s an excuse for me to get my nails done too) and once she is done she gets super bored waiting for her nails to dry.

And then I learned about Stripe Rite, skinny bottles of polish in fun colors sold at Sally Beauty and other online retailers that have a long, straight brush and are awesome for lightning bolts, flowers and so many other designs!  Add that to another product I already have at home, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color which dries in 60 seconds and available at Target, Wal-Mart and most pharmacies. Bye-Bye  “I’m bored Mommy” conversations – Time to go choose our colors!!

Beauty Buys at Target

I have something to share with you.

I am at Target at least once a week.  And if I can pick up any beauty items in between the aisles of paper towels and peanut butter, it saves me a trip to Nordstrom, Sephora and sometimes even the salon/spa.

Here is my Top 10 shopping list for beauty items at Target:

Cover Your Face

I have something to share with you.

nugg-revitalizeI was recently at Target and saw these single use beauty masks in the skin care aisle.  Of course I was curious so I googled Nügg and was surprised to see that Allure magazine rated them as a Best of Beauty item.   Nügg Offers six different options, even one for sensitive skin so I decided to try two.

The first one I tried was the exfoliating face mask made with cranberry seed oil and Jojoba Beads.  The small container was enough for two uses so I put some in a small leftover sample jar for a second application.  I covered my face, left on for 5 minutes and rinsed off.  Next I applied my night cream and off to bed I went with my super soft skin.

The second mask I tried was the revitalizing mask and I LOVED it.  It has peppermint oil and immediately tingles and wakes you up.  I love my Bliss body exfoliator with mint for the shower and had hoped I would love the Nügg mask just as much.  This container also had enough for me to save for another application and I cannot wait to apply again.  The best thing is this can be used at any time of day and it definitely “wakes up” your face.

Next on the list…..the Anti-Aging Face Mask!

The Halloween Splurge

I have something to share with you. 

IMG_8815My daughter has always loved dressing up in costumes.   It doesn’t matter if it’s a princess,  a superhero or a pirate, she loves costumes.  Plus we often dress in costume for birthday parties.
So how do I stock up without spending a small fortune at the Disney store?   I wait till Halloween and the day the sales hit, I run to Target and Party City and I get a bunch of stuff in her size.  Last year we got lucky –  I bought two superhero costumes and in kindergarten, we had a superhero day at school.  We had two outfits to choose from and everyone went to school happy.
