Nature’s Shea Butter Purchase from HauteLook

This is my first HauteLook purchase of 2015. I’ve been making an effort to buy things I actually need from HauteLook. They have fantastic sales and it’s easy to want to buy everything. This purchased arrived just in time too! I was almost out of argan oil and black soap. These two products have been a staple in my Winter beauty routine.

HauteLook Shea

HauteLook Shea3The argan oil has been a great tool to use underneath my moisturizer.

HauteLook Shea2I also ordered two bars of black soap. My oldest daughter has been using the black soap as well. Now she has a bar all to herself.

I do plan on placing an order the next time Nature’s Shea Butter is on HauteLook. :)

Most Recent MAC Purchase from Macy’s

MAC Skin Finish

I had $10 in Macy’s money I really wanted to use. It’s very rare I buy something from the MAC counter I actually need. LOL! Any other time I’m buying something based on impulse. This time around I purchased the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder. I use this as a setting powder. I like the coverage since it looks so natural on me.

I had the pleasure of receiving a pair. The pair I received are the “50 Shades” leggings. They’re made of spandex but don’t have a spandex feel. They feel like cotton and are very soft. They are a little pricier than if you were to buy a pair of leggings from a clothing store. They have a huge variety and you get what you pay for which are quality leggins. If you’d like to order some contact Amelia Plunkett in Facebook or visit her website at http://www.myfunleggings.com

Super Bowl XLIX Inspired Look: New England Patriots

The New England Patriots have made it to Super Bowl XLIX and there is already controversy. An investigation has shown 11 out of the 12 footballs used in the game against the Indianapolis Colts were under inflated. Under inflated footballs are easier for quarterbacks to grip especially in cold weather. People will be keeping a close eye on the Patriots for Super Bowl XLIX February 1, 2015.
