Dove Cool Moisture

For Christmas I actually received a nice lot of beauty products, including a Dove Cool Moisture gift set from Grandma with the Beauty Body Lotion, Body Wash, and the Beauty Bar soap. I've tried the soap and the lotion, I've yet to try the body wash. The scent is nice and light with a cucumber and green tea fragrance. I am definitely loving the lotion and absorbs into my skin fairly quickly leaving it soft but not greasy! I'll admit I usually don't buy Dove because I'm usually a Suave girl but treats are always nice. I have a bad habit of misplacing my lotion so I'm now trying to keep one in my room and one in the bathroom so I can be constantly moisturized with this dry weather.

I need to finish up laundry and getting ready so I can go shopping. Christmas money is already burning a hole in my pocket... I briefly checked out H&M yesterday but I didn't have time to really dig through the racks. So I'll hit up Short Pump Town Center and Regency in a little bit.

I'll keep you posted if I find anything good!

Blogging On The Run: My New Silver Shoes

On Wednesday I found these fab Kenneth Cole Reaction heels at Ross for just under $20.00! They're perfect "going out" shoes and the rubber sole makes them fairly comfortable. I hope all of you have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday. :-)

Bargainista Babe: New Years Eve

Hello all! Massive apologies for the lack there of posting... Finals kicked my butt but I managed to survive with a B in Survey of Economics and a C in Marketing Management. I'm on "winter break" from my county job so I am working full-time for my always fabulous retail gig for some extra cash. Classes start back up again January 7th and hopefully taking Business Leadership as well as Spreadsheet Software (Excel) won't be too taxing!

Earlier this week on Wednesday, I managed to record my Bargainista Babe spot for Q94's Melissa and Sid which aired on Thursday morning. I haven't heard the official end result myself but I talked to a few who caught it on air and said it was really good.

So here's a re-cap of what I featured!

You always want to look fabulous on New Years Eve and a classic little black dress (L.B.D.) is always a good choice. My two picks are by Old Navy and AB Studio at Kohl's. Both dresses feature empire waists which are great if you enjoyed a bit more than your fair share of cookies, fudge and other holiday delights. The AB Studio dress is good for covering up any "arm jiggle" but still shows a bit of tasteful cleavage (sounds like an oxymoron but trust me on this one).

A great dress always needs a great pair of shoes to go with it! I've liked some of the shoes for the Hollywould line at Target, these red shoes are too cute and will add a nice pop of color to your outfit. Check out the matching clutch too!

I'm still a Payless girl at heart so check out their massive collection of cute party shoes. Ladies, remember that you do need a bit of a heel when wearing empire waist dresses so you don't look frumpy and make sure to wear your heels around the house a bit to break them in before New Year's Eve!

If you decide to stick with a black or metallic shoe, why not add some color with some fun footless or patterned tights in a bright color! Target always has a great selection of fun hosiery but also check out DOTS, Ross, T.J. Maxx, and K&G Fashion Superstore as well. You never know what you might find! DOTS also has a good selection of cute metallic and sequined clutches so if you want to go the metallic route for a handbag, check them out!

For jewelry I'd suggest a pair of dangly earrings and a cute bangle. Target has a cute jewelry selection including their Marvella line. A fun pair of earrings will work for New Year's Eve as well as any fancy event or to dress up a simple outfit.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a happy holiday season! Happy New Year too!!!

A little pampering never hurts anyone!

Considering it's finals week combined with the stress of two jobs, PMS, and a migraine yesterday - I needed some rest and relaxation! I had an appointment booked for a facial at Let's Face It which is a new day spa that opened near the Short Pump Town Center. I chose the Alpha Beta Clearing Facial and let me tell you, they pamper you like crazy. All of their facials include a back, shoulder, neck, facial, and scalp massage as well as the hands and feet covered in lotion and placed into these awesome heated mitts and booties. My hands and feet are super soft now! I will admit my skin looks AMAZING and quite a few of the blackheads are gone. I definitely plan to splurge and try to get an Alpha Beta Peel Treatment every couple of months to help clear out more "junk" from my skin but my fabulous aesthetician Erin said my skin was in overall pretty good shape.

So if you're looking to treat yourself or someone else during the holidays, give Let's Face It a call at (804)364-1112. They've got lots of great specials going on so call to find out!

Blogging On The Run: (Finally) A Picture Of My New Boots!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME! There's nothing like a pair of new boots to get you in the mood for winter.


So the lovely ChicArmoire requested I show off my new boots I ordered from Nordstrom.com. I should be able to upload a picture later on in the day but here's the link to the Trotter's Audrey boots online.

I'm in a migraine induced fog today so back to being passed out on the couch... Ugh.
