FAVORITE FRIDAY WEEK 2...



I have to tell you It cosmetics has work great for me. I saw it on TV and decided why not give it a try.  I have been using it for 2 months now, and love it. It covers everything acne mark, brown spot. I even turned my mom and both daughters on to it. When it goes on it feel thick but after a second it is so light it feels like you are not wearing foundation. 
The eyeshadow palette TARTe is amazing. I am a sucker for trying new eyeshadow. I have tons of MAC shadow, every Naked palette they make. But what I liked about the TARTE palette was it doesn't flake under your eye when applying it. 
This NARS blush is Orgasm!! lol No, thats the color name. It is the perfect pink for every ones cheeks..
Thanks for stopping by!! Come Back next week for Favorites Friday..

Would love to here from you on any products you love or hate too...

Favorite Friday Products




On Friday's I will start posting my favorite beauty, hair, skin, makeup projects. So check back every FRIDAY!!
This week I started with some hair products, self tanner and deodorant. I have to say I never used a spray deodorant before. I was at walgreens and the sale person talked me into buying this Dove brand  it was on promotion that week. So the suck that I am for trying new things- I did!!  Guess what? I love it, it smells so good and definitely keep you dry. Pureology shampoo and conditioner is by far the best hair products. I have tried all kinds from cheap to expensive. This is so worth the money. The best part it last at least 3months for the shampoo, and 4-5month for the conditioner. I have short-medium length hair - you only need a little bit of each if that helps. As for hairspray " Big Sexy Hair" is awesome it holds your hair but it still so soft, definitely a plus. I hate when hair spray makes your hair so hold. I have been using Catwalk root lifter for about 4 years now. I can not seem to find another product that gives me the lift and still lets me blow dry my hair with out pulling it out.. lol
I am a crazy person when it comes to self tanners. I am constantly trying new products, so if you have any good ones PLEASE let me know!!! This L'oreal is ok for now, I hate smelling afterwards.. When done with my shower, I shake off  water and spray this on an rub it in and then towel dry (dapping). I get no streaking.. and don't smell as bad!!
I hope this helps, please come back for a visit next Friday for product reviews!!

Finished Powder Room Remodel


This ladder I made out of pre-stained wood for Home Depot. It has a weather look with out doing any of the work.;)  First, measure the width of you toilet tank so you know how long to make the width of the ladder. My height of the ladder is 75". I went to Home Depot with my measurements and they cut the wood for me. It was great, because this makes this project so easy and fast. I got 2pcs - 75" and 3pcs - 24". I found down the crown molding aisle little flower wood pieces that I hot glued to the nail heads.
I used 2 inch nails and nailed the width pieces behind the length pieces. I used small mug hooks and nail to hold the baskets to the center bars.(see picture below).


My cabinet is a weird shape so with out having to special order a new cabinet that cost a small fortune. I did the next best thing and painted it. This time I used Rustoleum chalk paint from Home Depot in Linen White (color.) I have to say after using this paint for the first time, I still like Annie Sloan Chalk paint the best. I appied 2 coats of paint and let it dry for a couple of hours.

                           This is after 2 coats of Rustoleum chalk paint.


This is after I applied 1 coat of Annie Sloan clear wax. I used an old white T- shirt to apply. When done I applied a Annie Sloan dark wax with a very small brush in corners and then use a rag to rub it in. So the corners will look darker then the center.






































I went to a granite store and pick a piece out for the counter. I had them put in a small sink. My son removed the old counter and sink. I was really easy, and all took about 30 minutes. If you are considering removing you own. 


Finally, The finish project...

DENIM NIGHT..







Friday night we had dinner and drinks at our home with close friends. We love entertaining, it is so fun planning the minuend setting up.  So not expecting the fabulous weather we had Friday. Sunny and 80, how can you go wrong with that. We didn't even have our patio put together yet. But of course we managed to have fun and laughs as always. 
I decide to wear this chambray dress that I purchased at Nordstrom before vacation. It is now sold out, sorry I waited so long to post it. I have linked a similar one. As for the shoes and bracelets that I am always asked about. They are linked above too.:)

Is it Shorts weather yet!!!

       Scallop Tee Shirt // Sandals // Necklace (similar) // Shorts

When will it be shorts weather in Chi-town??? I hate winter will all the layers of clothes, and then to have to put on a heavy coat..UGHHH!!  I was so happy on vacation when I was able to wear shorts, sandals, and short sleeves. This outfit was perfect for a day of shopping and lunch with friends in California. The t-shirt is a must have it is lose fitting on the bottom, can be worn casual or dressy. I love to think about that when shopping. Especially when traveling it makes it much easier when packing.
Enjoy Shopping!!!

Night out!!!


                                          OFF THE SHOULDER TOP // NECKLACE // JEANS

My outfit of the night!!  Hubby and I went to friends new home for dinner and drinks. We had a great time catching up with them. I wore my favorite distressed jeans by Old Navy. I have like 6 pairs of the same jeans. I love there Rockstar jeans only. The way they fit and never stretch out or sag. Sagging is my biggest pet peeve when it comes to jeans. My shirt is from She-In online store. The best is its only $17.59 and your first order is 40% off. How can you bet that savings. I am getting addicted to Kendra Scott, like I am Alex and Ani. I love all the colors her jewelry comes in. Just think between my shirt and jeans together its under $50. :)
