New Favorites …from the drugstore


I went a little wild in the drugstore last week …like $235 worth of wild. And do you know what $235 gets you at the drug store? Quite a basket-ful of fun! Here are a few of my new favorite items.

* Sally Hansen nail polish 220 in Cafe Au Lait $7.59 …I was looking for that perfect shade of nude a’la the 70’s and this is perfection. {you can see the color on my nails on my DIY Lanvin Necklace post}

* Sally Hansen Lip Inflation in Sheer Mocha $6.59 …besides the brush {I like a little sponge better} I LOVE this. For the past 5 or so years I’ve been using LipFusion which is $38 and Sally just saved me $31.

* Scunci No-slip Grip Evolution Opaque Jelly Ponytailers (Pack of 14) $2.99 at the store $4.97 on amazon {link} …hands down THE BEST hair elastics I’ve tried so far. There is NO SEAM. And no fabric to stretch and grab and pull hair out.

…and allowed me to create this bow-like bun {with one little jaw clip in the front to hold the fly-aways}


* Organix Shampoo, Nourishing Coconut Milk $6.99 at the drugstore, $9.19 at amazon and Organix Conditioner, Nourishing Coconut Milk $6.99 at the store, $$5.56 at amazon …A. I die for anything coconut so that, along with the packaging drew me to this shampoo and conditioner set. When I read closer it claimed to be Sulfate free and that sold me {but really it was the smell}. However, the duo did leave my hair tangled and dry. It works best if you’re going for a messy, tangled, beachy hair look …or if you’re staying home. I still stand by DOVE shampoo & conditioners in color repair and volume boost …and mix in the Mane’n Tail as well. yes, I traded in my Fekkai for DOVE


* And last but CERTAINLY not least Kushyfoot lace foot covers. I’m not kidding when I say I squealed a little when I saw the wall full of these little padded-under-the-ball-of-your-foot socks. In fact it was less of a squeal and more of a WHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT?!?!? And then I said out loud WHY DON’T I KNOW ABOUT THESE? Because in theory they may be the best thing ever invented …yeah, better than toilets. Well, no …but pretty great. So of course, I bought them in black lace, white lace, and nude …er 2 nudes.

oh also, THEY’RE $3.49 EACH. Yeah …I know!

* I may have to go back for KushyFoot Foot Tubes Wrap Around Foot Bands …because really, they may make like 50% of my shoes more comfortable. I hope so anyway.
