The guys from Vintage Trouble are so much fun to listen to, and I love their video sampler. A great old rock-n-roll w/ some blues thrown in kind of sound. "Still and Always Will" is awesome. Also check them out on NoiseTrade.
I was an overnight David Ramirez fan when I first heard his song "Shoeboxes" a couple months ago. Then I fell in love with "Fires." Brilliant songwriting. You should definitely give him a listen, especially since he has a FREE live album download right now.
I'm still in love with B&BW's Pink Chiffon lotion/spray. For real. This feels like a lifelong love affair. If you haven't smelled it, you need to. If you are a guy, go buy some for your girl. Trust me. :)
But I also love Avon/Mark's whipped up lemon butter. It's greasier going on than I usually like, but the smell.....intoxicating! Most of my lotions are repulsive to my silly dog and he will walk away when I'm putting it on, but when I put on this lemon butter, he literally sits next to me DROOLING. Really gross, but hilarious. I guess that's a compliment to Avon. :)
Estee Lauder's Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara may be on the record books for the longest makeup title, but it's also an amazing product. I have been on a hunt for the perfect mascara for about 6 months now, and this is where I've landed. It also comes off easily (w/o using the special eye makeup remover stuff that makes me break out) and does not clump. It's about twice as expensive as its drugstore counterparts, but I've had great luck finding it on Amazon. (I've read that you should avoid buying liquid makeups on reseller shops like Amazon b/c you don't know how old it is or they stored it or what it was exposed to, but I've had great luck buying mascara online.) If I did have to buy it at the dept store for full price, I probably would still fork over the $23 b/c this stuff is amazing.
I saw these Peeps&T-shirts sets in the store and was almost compelled to grab one...almost. Totally cracked me up. Some good marketing.
I'm trying to drink more milk in the morning (and less Diet Dr. Pepper....and mocha frappes....and S*bucks iced mochas...) but milk isn't my fave thing all by itself. So these little iced latte packets are a great compromise. Just add to a glass of milk w/ a couple ice cubes, and voila--a great drink w/ way less calories and w/o the guilt of a $5 latte. The whole box of 6 packets was about $2.30.
Last month I posted about this Prevage moisturizer stuff that was liquid gold--amazing product but way over my beauty budget at $130. My skin has become so dry that a moisturizer is essential. So I called my lovely Avon rep and dear friend Helen and ordered some of their ANEW products. I've been using the moisturizers for 2 days now, so a little too early to have a serious opinion, but so far it's very good. The price is more doable than the Elizabeth Arden line, too. The trial kit was just $20, and the full size products range from $30-60. And AVON has fantastic deals all the time, so I rarely pay full price for anything.
My stomach literally hurt from laughing so hard after watching this parody of Downton Abbey, entitled Downton Arby's. If you loved the original, you must see this! Poor Lady Edith and that straw! :) Oh my word...still laughing. "Sybil, put down those curly fries!"
And if you loved Disney's movie Tangled, then you will love Tangled Ever After, the story of their wedding. It's well-worth the 6 1/2 minutes. We saw it in 3D at the theatre, and it was awesome!
