Just like the we are into Tuesday. Guess what I forgot to share with you yesterday? My bachelorette party is this weekend! I cannot wait to get away for a few days with some of my most beloved gals and just relax and be spoiled. I seriously have some of the sweetest bridesmaids. So I thought for this things I’ve been digging lately post I would keep it all within an affordable budget since everyone seems to be scratching their heads a little bit with that holiday shopping. Also since half of my life is still in stackable plastic tubs I have rediscovered some products that were some sleeper gems.
Trader Joe’s Coconut Butter
I mean it smells like coconut frosting but its not that sickeningly sweet smell that lingers all day and makes your stomach turn. It is thick but absorbs quickly and isn’t greasy. When you put it on I swear it feels cooling. Out of my arsenal of body lotions this one has rose to the top. Best part it was like five or six bucks I can’t remember. Write yourself a note the next time you go and pick it up. I forgot like 10 times because who honestly travels down that aisle. It’s like frozen section, grab some chips and then head to the wine/heavenly aisle. The bath products usually gets skipped.
If you don’t live near one apparently you can get it through Amazon here it is cheaper in stores…..I would tell you to phone a friend for a favor and we’ll send it ;-)
While you’re at Trader Joe’s
Pick up some of the organic jasmine frozen rice. It passed the strictest of all rice critics. Mark. You heat it up for 3 minutes and it is two hearty servings. I’m sure it is supposed to like serve four but for two it was perfect. Sorry for the generic picture the box in our over stuffed combined freezer didn’t make the cut.
Also if you are lucky enough to snag this do it. Amazing.
This Eye makeup remover
I mean it’s not the Lancome holy grail but that is the upper echelon price tag and I always spill that screw top bottle……let’s be honest. I also love the Sephora brand remover but I got this Rimmel London one in that influenster box. I almost threw it in a holiday gift set but I really liked the squeeze top. It makes it Amanda idiot spill proof basically. It takes off my waterproof eyeliner, isn’t greasy and non irritating. It actually reminded me of this Bioderma which is three times the price. You can pick it up at your local drug stores for under $5. Also please divert your eyes from our mismatched towels….someone can’t part with his just yet.
It’s not the urban decay 24/7 liner (perversion is my favorite black color) but it’s pretty darn close. The Rimmel london Scandaleyes in black glides on very easily and is super dark. If you don’t have a primer on your eyelids or you immediately blink it did transfer up to my lid. The next time I put it on with a primer and it wore really well for New Year’s. For under $5 I threw it in my every day makeup travel case. Win win.
This Cream for Smooth Arms
Do you have that problem at all especially when it gets cold out you get those little bumps on the back of your arms? Like right in that tricep area? This KP duty cream has glycolic acid and green tea extract. It doesn’t cure them but it does really soften them up nicely. I keep the small bottle on my nightstand aka my small pharmacy.
Y’all know my love for the YSL lip stains. I have added to my daytime collection. Beige Anarchist color 106 is the most perfect swipe on for work and it will last till lunch. Not glittery it just gives your lip that subtle hint of color. It is on the left. Naughty Mauve color 107 is a tad darker and is a great going to dinner but not trying to overdue it color. Highly recommend adding these to your arsenal. No lie they last forever.
Those are a few things on my radar right now! What are some of your affordable everyday go to products? Hope you are having a fabulous day! xoxoxo
