My boss asked me to train the new girl. Now, I'm not going to start bitching about work because I actually love my job- I have one of the best jobs in the world, but it took me ALLLLLL DAY. Literally. Just got home an hour ago and a friend stopped by. It's 12 am, I'm exhausted, and I have to train tomorrow again too. But I couldn't not post on my 2nd day of the new bloggy blog! I'm just too excited to skip out!
First of all- before I get into the thick of things- I have to say thank you so much to all of you that commented yesterday. You warm my heart. Seriously- Draz will tell you- I'm a serious lover of comments and 18 comments on the first day sent me over the edge. I am in love- with you. Which is good for you because we're in the honeymoon phase and I promise to be extra giving and try extra hard to make you happy and do everything right so you love me back. :)
A few of you commented yesterday about wanting to know about products and I am SOOOO excited to talk shop. I have been thinking off and on today about what I could start with- and I picked three things. They're definitely only the surface of what really goes on- but this is where we need to start...right?
1) Teeth whitening. Check. Crest 3D White Strips with Advanced SEAL No Slip Technology- my favorite. I literally only have to do 1 little pack every few months and my teeth stay perfectly white (you whiten to the level you want- then do a maintenance pack every once in awhile "as needed"...it's awesome). Those of you who know me, know I have white teeth.
2) Oh- you wanted eye cream? One that helps minimize wrinkles and crow's feet, lightens the under-eye area AND gets rid of puffiness???? Check again. Skin Medica TNS Eye Repair. Yes- it's $89.10 for a little bitty dribble of it. Yes it's worth it. It will change your life. One of my biggest issues is puffiness under my eyes- it's HORRIFIC without this stuff. This stuff takes it all away and keeps people thinking I'm 25-27 years old. Seriously- it works. Don't doubt- try it out. You'll thank me later. If the TNS Eye Repair is a little out of your price range- my roommate swears by Burt's Bee's Naturally Ageless Line Smoothing Eye Cream. It's $25 a bottle and her favorite thing about it is that it stays on thick enough to last through the entire night.
3) Eyelash Enhancer. Duhhhhh! The best? Latisse. But if you can't afford Latisse ($130 minimum for a bottle, and you need a prescription)...try Beauty Society's Enormous Lash...it's 4 times stronger than the original version and you don't need a prescription- and super gentle so even contact lens wearer's won't get irritated. What does it do? Stimulates your eyelash follicles so your lashes grow thick and long...hey get help where you can is what I say. Between getting rid of puffiness and adding length on my lashes- I take years off my eyes (this isn't even including all the collagen pumping, youth boosting, anti-oxidant crap I put on everywhere else). A little Enhancer and a little mascara and you will be one hot mama- swear.
These are just some of the things I'm obsessed with. As I mentioned though- I'm a junkie. I'm crazy, I admit it. But I'll be damned if anyone thinks I'm over 27 (which I totally am). While I do try to watch what I buy and spend...I tend to "treat" myself a lot too...maybe a little more than I should.
In short: if I had to start somewhere- this is probably where I'd start. Now- #3 is totally interchangeable with ex-foliating the skin and keeping it hydrated and lustrous. Beautiful, youthful skin may be as important or more important than youthful, expressive eyes. But I will save that dissertation for another day, as it's now getting late and I have another long day tomorrow. For my recap: I had a great day- didn't work out, and drank too much coke zero. But I hope your day was fabulous too...
Let's talk beauty! What you got????
