Fall Beauty Swap

Happy Monday!!

Is that too much enthusiasm for a Monday??  I mean the sun is shining and we're supposed to top out somewhere near 80 degrees today so it should be a great day!

If that's not enough, I get to share with y'all my Beauty Swap goodies I received from my new pal Whitney and let me tell you she spoiled me rotten.  Take a look and see for yourself!

Coming all the way from...

Greeting Card

Whitney sent me some super cute Halloween goodies!  Aren't those eyelashes the!?  My costume doesn't really warrant them, but I may just have to wear them just because!  And the press-on nails have such cute designs.  I'm thinking of mixing and matching! 


And because we both aren't pregnant and also to ward off any threat of Ebola...
Has anyone tried the Deep Eddy cranberry vodka?  I'm thinking Sprite or 7UP as a good mixer?!

Prevention Kit

Now for the make-up goods!!  I'm telling you, Whitney out-frickin-did herself with this box of awesomeness!

Beauty Swap Goodies

Beauty Swap Goodies

See... I told ya!  I haven't even had time to give everything a try, but I'm seriously looking forward to all the fun I'm going to have when I do!

This morning I made myself presentable to the public by using the Smashbox BB Cream, the Too Faced bronzer and mascara and the Buxom lip gloss (which it's name, YOW, cracks me up!) and I'm liking it all so far.  The lip gloss isn't sticky and stayed on through my breakfast smoothie, so that's a win!  I've never used a BB cream, heck I'm not really even sure what it IS... but I'm loving the coverage and it feels great on.  I'll have to see how the mascara holds up throughout the day, but I've already had a couple people comment on my Instagram photo about how much they love it, so I have high hopes!  I'm a pretty big fan of L'Oreal's Beauty Tubes, but maybe I'll be swayed?!?!


  1. This package is too funny! I giggled at the not pregnant part. After posting my Carmel Apple Drink recipe everyone is also telling me Fireball and Apple Cider is awesome. Those tattoos are awesome!

  2. I haven't used the Glam Glo mask you received. I'll be on the look out to see if you like it. I have used the org. (white) and recently the hydrating (blue) and have fallin' in love with them. I enjoyed reading about your box and look forward to following you here.

  3. I am totally in love with the package you got! Talk about a wonderful sense of humor :) I cannot wait to hear about how much you love the products you got!

  4. Please let us know what you think of the Living Proof mask and the Glam Glow! Those are two things that are on my must-try list :) I have the Better Than Sec mascara and the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, love them both. The bronzer is a great matte color perfect for contouring!

  5. Wow, such a fun package, and jam-packed with goodies! I still need to try out all of my products too, looking forward to finding some new favorites :)

  6. This is completely awesome-- she sent you so many great things-- love all the festive halloween things too!

  7. Girlfriend, you totally got the hook up!! So many awesome things - I'm impressed!!

  8. I'm so glad you loved everything! And thank you so much for all the goodies you sent me! Hope one day our paths cross in real life!! :)
