Mini Maybelline Haul from Rite Aid

I decided to take advantage of the 40% off Maybelline cosmetics this week. It also helped that I had three Maybelline coupons to use.

Maybelline Rite Aid Purchase

I already have my fair share of red lip colors. I saw the Burgundy Beauty Color Sensational® lipstick and decided to get it. This shade is perfect for Fall.

I am already a fan of Maybelline’s mascaras. They are my favorite drug store brand. I wanted to try out the Great Lash® Real Impact™ Mascara just to see how the formula is.

I was on the fence as to whether or not I was going to purchase the Nudes Palette. I already have nude eyeshadow palettes. Was having another palette going to be redundant? This palette being on sale and having a $2.00 off coupon helped in making my decision to purchase this palette.

The total price of this purchase after I used $5.50 in coupons was $9.17 (the price before the 7% sales tax was added).

Affordable Halloween Style

My youngest daughter Naomi and her friends decided to wear Halloween costumes today. They are all way past the age of trick or treating too. LOL! Buying a Halloween costume is almost like buying an outfit you’re only going to wear one time.

This is what Naomi wore. She called herself the Magical Mad Hatter.

Naomi Halloween Costume

  • The hat she is wearing is actually two hair accessories she borrowed from me. The bow tie is another hair accessory she borrowed.
  • The necklace is mine along with the red shirt.
  • The vest, black jeans, and boots are hers.
  • The cape is a long cardigan of mine.

NFL Teams Makeup Look: Washington Redskins

There has been some controversy as of recent regarding the Washington Redskins name. There has also been a push to change the name of this team. Many say the name is offensive to Native Americans. As of today, this NFL team is still known as the Washington Redskins. They have won three Super Bowl Championships. Their team colors are burgundy and gold.

Rae’s Birthday Style

My oldest daughter Rae recently turned twenty-one years old. YAYYYY!!!!! Writing that sentence was the easy part. The hard part was helping her pick out a birthday outfit. Mid October can be a little tricky in Pittsburgh. Fall weather has started to make an appearance. There can still be some mild days too. The weather was definitely going to dictate the outfit Rae was going to wear. She decided to see what was already in her closet.

Rae Birthday Outfit

Rae bought this dress a couple of years ago from Charlotte Russe. She bought the shoes from Journeys back in 2011. She borrow the purse I bought from Charming Charlie.
