Friday Five-Skin Care

I cannot believe that it is Friday,
and it is almost the end of August.
It is as if I blinked and summer is over. 
Time really does fly.

I thought I would shake it up for my Friday Five.
Change is good right??

Today, I'm sharing my five new favorite skin care products.


My friend told me how awesome this stuff was and how
great a job it did at removing her makeup.
Honestly, I thought she wascrazy but I went out and bought it.
Oh man, I was wrong. This stuff removes all your makeup
 without leaving your face dry.  It even removes
 my waterproof eye makeup!!


I got this in one of my Play by Sephora's Box.
I'm not really sure what this stuff does but
I put it on at night before my moisturizer
and I wake up with beautiful, radiant soft skin. 
As it is a bit drying, I only use it every other night
but wow what a difference in my skin now 
that I started using it.  I love this stuff.


I'm obsessed with this mask.
This stuff makes my pores look so much better.
In the summer, my biggest problem is my enlarged pores
and they make me crazy. Since, I have been using 
this stuff, my pores haven't been giving me any trouble
and you can hardly see them. They are so small now.
Plus, I love peeling it off. Sick, I know.


Let The Good Times Roll by Lush

I'm loving this cleanser by Lush.
Normally, I'm not a fan of natural products
because I find them to be drying. However,
this stuff is fantastic. It's not drying at all.
In fact, it's really hydrating and makes my skin so soft.
The only downside is that is smells so good, I just want to eat it. 
What a problem, right? 


Shiseido White Lucent Anti-Dark Circles Eye Cream

I have been using Clinique All About Eyes for years 
but lately my dark circles have been worse than ever.
I have been putting this eye cream on top of all about eyes
and my dark circles have been getting lighter and lighter.
Who knew layering eye cream would help?
I totally can see a difference now that I'm using 
two eye creams. I think the all about eyes hydrates
and this one actually lightens the dark circles.
Used together, my dark circles (the bane of my existence)
have diminished so much.

Neiman Marcus

Those are the new skin care products that I have 
been using lately and loving.  You only 
have one face, so it's important to
practice good skin care. And never
ever go to bed with makeup on. I always
wash my face before bed, no matter how 
tired I am. I cannot sleep if I don't have
a clean face.

That is my Friday Five.
I'm going to see Aaron Tveit
tomorrow night in concert and I'm so excited!!!
I couldn't even tell you the last concert I went to,
it has been that long. 

Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Do you have any new skin care products you like? 
Please, tell me all about them.

Back to Blogging with Custom Labels and Stickers

Hi All, remember me?? 

I was hoping to only take a small break but it 
ended up being longer than I thought. 
I have work to thank for that.
 This summer has been absolutely crazy and not in a good way. 
All I have been doing is working. 
Haven't even had a vacation.
Talk about a disappointing summer
and I really really missed blogging 
and all of you. 

When Sticker App contacted me and asked me if I wanted
to make some custom labels and stickers, I jumped at the chance.
I have loved stickers since I was little.
In fact, I have stickers all over
my planner and my memo boards.

Here are the stickers I made.
Aren't they adorable??
