Sludgy OOTD

One of the greatest feelings in the world - wearing rain boots and being able to walk through puddle after puddle knowing your feet will be nice and dry.

The Best Smelling Beauty Products

Pictured: That's a lot of stuff.

There are two types of people: people that use the phrase 'there are two types of people" and people that don't. Unlike that situation, there are many different variations when people regard scents of beauty products, e.g, people can either use only products they like the scents of, ignore the scents completely, avoid all terrible smelling things. In this case, it's not limited to just two kinds of people. Let's be honest here, it's probably impossible to have just two types of people in such a world so vast with every human being unique.

Okay, back to the scents. Obviously, not everyone likes the same scents, so if I'm dissing something you happen to love the smell of, or you're absolutely appalled that I love something that makes you want to barf, let me know by leaving a comment!

Part 1: The Best

A) Fruity

i. Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
I love the scent of citrus so much. This cuticle cream smells like these lemon cheesecake bars, which are more fresh lemon-y than dessert-y, and by that I mean it focuses on the fruit.

ii. Burt's Bees Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit
Like I said before, I love citrus. This smells exactly like grapefruits (because they use grapefruit oil, duh) without their bitter taste.

Sally Hansen Colorfast Tint + Moisture Balm - Swatches and a Review

Happy 2014, friends! Back in my Annual Clearance post, you may recall that I found the Sally Hansen Colorfast Tint + Moisture Balms for 75% off. I happened upon them at several other CVS's, and I now own almost all the colors except for Nude n' Natural, which I didn't pick up because I don't do light nudes... and Made Me Blush, which I could not find ANYWHERE. It makes sense though, because it's a nice soft pink and seems to work for most people.

I'm afraid these are probably going to be discontinued, since they are on clearance and are featured in Sally Hansen Glam Packs, which are pretty much just a way to get rid of the stuff that the company knows no one really wants anymore, haha.

I'm sure the lip crayon packaging is reminiscent of the popular Revlon Balm Stains and the Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balms, however, don't believe these are balmy lip stains. As the actual name of the product implies, they are a tint + balm, meaning they are essentially a tinted lip balm in jumbo crayon form.

Victoria's Secret Haul

So after school today, I was determined to go on a spending spree at Victoria's Secret - partially because I've been really stressed lately and needed some retail therapy, also partially because it's finally winter break and it's a nice treat to myself, but mostly because I had a $10 off a purchase card that was expiring soon.
I'm sorry if you're not into looking at panties (I'm not really).

Annual Drugstore Clearance Sale

You may or may not know already, but CVS, Rite-Aid, and Walgreens are having their end of the year product purge, putting things that no one wants anymore on clearance. For more details, I recommend checking out nouveaucheap's many posts regarding this topic.

Anyway, the other day I stopped by a CVS, and was pleasantly surprised to see the clearance sale going on. My local drugstores are very slow with just about everything, so I hadn't expected the clearance items to be marked already.

Here's some of the marked displays I saw.

Throwback OOTDs Pt 2

Sadly, my phone died recently, and so along with it went all my photos and videos from the past two years (I actually do have most of them on my computer, but all of the recent stuff is gone).  Luckily for me, some of the photos I do still have are my old OOTDs from sophomore year, so I present to you, another collage of throwback OOTDs, only this time *gasp* not in Target (Two of which feature fellow blogger, Kitty).
