I watched that movie "Up" last night. I thought it was so cute! If you watch it, get a box of Kleenex ready. It had me tearing up in the first 10 minutes. Lovely message and a lovely movie overall.

I was looking like death this morning. My face looked really sleepy and just out of it. You know what I can always count on to brighten my face and make me feel good?
Do you like my old school Maybelline mascara?
It's so good to know that all it takes are these three little things to pick me up. I never wanted to be one of those people who needs to put on all this make-up to look normal, and then look like crap when I don't have any on. Don't get me wrong, I love make-up and I can wear quite a bit when I'm going out. But it's nice to know that all I need is an eyelash curler, mascara, and some lip gloss to make me feel human. And come on, it doesn't hurt that looking good makes you feel good, too.

What are some beauty items/beauty routines that make you feel good about yourself?


  1. I HAVE to use my face scrub every 3 days or so. I use that St. Ives Apricot stuff, it just makes my whole face feel so smooth! I also use this amazing cleanser by Clean and Clear. It is tingly and makes me feel awake and alive in the morning!

    (I'm not a huge makeup user but if I need something to brighten my day I use purple or bronze eyeshadow, they just make me happy!)

    Congrats on rocking Day 3!!!

  2. Hmmm - I'm not a huge makeup user, but My go-to pick me up's have to be eyeliner and lip gloss. If I really need to pick myself up from really down, I have some really light, slightly sparkly eye shadow. You can barely see it once it's on, but it lightens the look of my face.

    Oh, and on the challenge thing? You rock!

  3. I try different mascara's all the time, but that Maybelline is ALWAYS the one I go back to!

  4. You're rocking it girl!! Keep it up!!

    Oh and Im a mascara and lipgloss girl myself, but the curler scares the crap outta me. lol

  5. Mascara & Burt's Bees for the lips - the original stuff that makes your lips all tingly.

    I swear I feel more "grown up" when I put on mascara. Must be leftover from my youth when I'd wear my mom's make-up. lol

    You're rocking the week! Bet you can do it through the weekend, too!

    Best wishes,
