August Favorites!

August, you’ve come and gone, but I couldn’t ignore the favorites I discovered and continue to love throughout the month.

First and foremost: My feet. Let’s just say my heels are pretty much in bad shape all the time. Scratchy, scaly, rough heels are not attracting anyone. But using the Amope Pedi Perfect has made a huge difference. Used on dry skin, the rotating file grinds down the tough skin, leaving it smooth and ready for lotion. It’s not a one and done deal, but with regular use in between pedicures, you’ll be able to keep your feet looking nice and soft. It’s a little pricey, but if you think about how often you’ll use it, it’s worth the cost. You can find it anywhere from the grocery store to the drug store to probably even drugstore.com or Ulta.

Wrinkles – be gone! I’ve been lucky to not have many wrinkles, and I believe it’s due to the fact that I moisturize and use sunscreen daily. However, Caudalie’s Anti-wrinkle Eye and Lip Cream is a crazy duo that I really love. It’s a great moisturizer, and is safe for the tender skin around the eyes and the mouth. It’s not greasy – it melts into skin instantly, offering moisturizing benefits and skin plumping ingredients to keep eyes and lips looking youthful. Because let’s be honest, the crows feet and lip lines are a dead giveaway we’re not 19 anymore! Available at Sephora.

¬†Last but not least, I’ve found a line of makeup brushes that are reasonably priced, and work really well. They’re from the Drew Barrymore collection, FLOWER. I’m obsessed with the powder brush. It’s soft, picks up powder easily and places it evenly on the face. I can’t vouch for the longevity of the brush, but the prices are so reasonable, even if you only get 6 months to a year out of it, you’re in good shape. It’s definitely worth checking out. I think it’s important to save where you can, so you can splurge on that one item you can’t live without! The FLOWER line is available exclusively at Wal-Mart.

That’s all I’ve got for August favorites. Let me know if there’s anything else you’re dying to hear about. Happy to share and love to hear your comments.

Primer Worth Time and Money


So it took me awhile to buy into the whole Primer phase. I use a moisturizer everyday and I didn’t honestly believe a primer would make that much of a difference. I was wrong!

I tried Global Goddess Beauty’s Upgrade Complexion Face Primer and Holy Cow! It certainly did upgrade my complexion! With a hint of pearlescent pigments, Upgrade Face Primer evens out complexion and protects skin with luxurious vitamins A and E.

The best thing is that ANYONE can use this product, your skin coloring is irrelevant. It brightens and smooths and for me, helped my makeup last longer without sliding off. And let’s face it, ladies. Anything to help prolong makeup is a plus in my book.

Get yours today at Sephora.com. They always have great deals on shipping and wonderful freebies, too! Now it’s easier than ever to look and feel like a Goddess!
