So fall is around the corner, slowly creeping up and waiting to strike parents with out them knowing! It is the time of year when shops start to fill up of parents trying to find good deals, crabby children who do not want to go back to school, college students, and the poor souls trapped in the middle. Ahhhhh back to school shopping how fun.

I was at Old Navy yesterday and WOW what a nightmare that was. People pushing by each other while trying to remain in control of their children. There was not nearly enough employees and it was way too crowded! Target was the same, over crowded lots of people in one spot, it was like Christmas only with out the lights, music, somewhat good cheer. I thought to myself wow this is crazy, and there has to be a way out of it!

Yup there is, online school shopping! There is no hassle of everyone and their mother being at the same place as you. You can be at home and your kids will be ok with it, especially if they hate shopping! Ahhh shopping online is nice and relaxing. There is no wasted gas from driving from the "bad" mall to the "good" one. Also, it is great to get a package in the mail that is fun to open and feel like your birthday or Christmas.

I looked around and found some great deals for Back to school and well just in general. I am all about being fashionable and saving money. If I can help someone save money then I feel like I have accomplished something! So, take a look through and I hope this helps the BACK TO SCHOOL BLUES!!!!!!!!

Mascara love!

I love mascara, I love the way some mascaras make my lashes look. Long and luxurious or full and dramatic, I love mascara. There are so many out there to get so many mascaras to choose from it's sometimes hard to pick which one and how much you can spend. But as I have learned from using drugstore mascaras and designer, sometimes you need to spend more for hat you want.

I used to do Mary Kay back in the day and used Avon cosmetics. I loved getting that tube of mascara in my stockings( thanks ma) at Christmas and in my Easter basket. The products were good but stopped being good for me as I developed eye allergies to certain mascaras. So, I switched to drug store brands for awhile they worked as well. Great lash was a staple for a long time and I just put up with my itchy eyes.

When I started working for Clinique cosmetics I discovered how awesome it was to have great mascara and no eye funk! I loved Clinique's high impact mascara! It's dramatic and full of that oomph that women love! Another great which they do not make anymore was the lash curling mascara oohhh how I loved it! But alas they no longer have it. I got spoiled working for Clinique and getting to try all that new great stuff! I also got to play with makeup from Lancome, Chanel, Este Lauder, Arden,and MAC. I love volume and length for my lashes but not everyone feels the same. I just feel my eyes pop when my lashes are full! I wish I had Elizabeth Taylor's lashes! Some great volume and full mascaras that I have tried are High Impact by Clinique, hypnose by lancome, and lash blast by covergirl. If you want length and slight volume there is high definition mascara by Clinique it's double sided brush is unique and fun! One side is the bristles the other side is a comb. What you do is use the bristle side first for depth and comb it through for length. Lancome has the oscillating mascara, this mascara is pretty savvy if you think about it. In the wand is a button you press to make the mascara wand vibrate gently. This makes the mascara get on to the lashes evenly but its brush is like lash blast. This mascara is 25 dollars but well worth it! Once you get past the tickling of you eye it leaves luxurious lashes. Use this mascara with a white primer and you have drama! For waterproof or rather water resistant mascara Clinique lash power takes the cake! This mascara was number one in Asia for a reason! It does not come off! In humid climates it stays put and is beautiful. It is 24 hr wear. To take off use hot water!

My friends always have me pick there mascaras either at a dept store or at a drug store. The best advice I can give is when picking a mascara think about what's important for your look. Length, volume, natural, waterproof, dramatic you can be sure to find the right mascara! I would also suggest talking to a beauty professional at a cosmetic counter or your Avon or Mary Kay consultant.

bright colors and nail polish.

How much do you spend on your nails? Do you get acrylics or just a manicure? It seems that more women are doing more on their nails than anything lately. I was listening to MPR the other day and they were talking about how more women are spending more on nail polish than on lipstick. Has nail polish replaced lipstick in this economy? Well, nail polish can be very cheap to expensive it does have a more lasting effect. Lipstick you have to reapply a lot, nail polish on average every 7-10days. Acrylic fill every 2 weeks or if you have slow growing nails 3 weeks. Nail polish is not just the red and pink everyone is used to. More women are going for bold and vibrant colors. Greens, neon pinks, orange, and yellow. It is fun to play with color and even black nail polish can be chic now. No longer reserved for Gothic girls and guys, even Hollywood stars are wearing it. I know women have been wearing polish all the time but, it is growing in trend to have fun and funky nails. Even lacey nails are in and unusual patterned nails, like camo. This nail trend is going into everything women are wearing.
This summer more women are going with bright colors and vibrant prints. I am not sure if it is a major thing or just summer fashion. There are plenty of fun and adorable things to wear, either on your nails, as a outfit, or on your feet. This summer is color and lots of it! I know people start to focus on the fall but, hey it is ok to still talk about summer fashion. It is still hot outside!
