The Declaration of.... the rest of my life...

Today I declared my CIS minor.

Math is my major.

And Economics will hopefully be my second major.

Hopefully I'm not making bad choices for the rest of my life.  Maybe chemistry is my calling? Or astrophysics? Who knows.  It has been chosen and silly money has set it in stone with budget constraints.

Top Drugstore Products: NOT YET COMPLETE

  • Revlon Lip Butters
With 20 different colors, there's something for everyone and every lip butter I've tried (7 so far) have been phenomenal.

  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains
My favorites are Crush (berry) and Honey (medium pink, NOT pictured below).  They last for ages and are so simple to apply!  They are a much cheaper alternative to Tarte's Lip Surgances.

  • Neutrogena Mineral Sheers 

My Must-Have Products for Fall 2012: NOT YET COMPLETE

  • Revlon Lip Butter in "Berry Smoothie"


  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains in Crush (berry) and Honey (medium pink)


Can't find that product you've been dying to have?

Recently I have been lusting over the Guerlain Shine Automatique Hydrating Lip Shine in shade 760, Lou-Ling, from the 2012 holiday collection, and, to my dismay, it was sold out everywhere I looked.  Sephora doesn't carry the holiday collection, and Nordstrom was sold out.  Living in Oregon, Nordstrom is the largest department store we have.  So, I turned to the magical world of the internet and found the lipstick I've been wanting from Saks Fifth Avenue online, and they had a free shipping promotional code!  

So, the moral of the story is if you can't find what you're looking for, try, try again.  Keep in mind that even if a product is sold out online, that doesn't mean that it isn't in stock at a particular store.  

Happy shopping, Loves.
