Cake Beauty Strawberry Shortcake Decadent Hand Creme Review

Cake Beauty Strawberry Shortcake Decadent Hand Creme 1

I just took the 80′s test and I’m a little uncomfortable with how many of these things I remember:

You Know You Grew Up In the 80′s if (Bold black for the things I remembered, italics for the things I REALLY loved about the 80′s):

  • You’ve ever ended a sentence with the word SIKE.
  • You can sing the rap to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and can do the Carlton.
  • You know that “WOAH” comes from Joey on Blossom.
  • If you ever watched “Fraggle Rock“.
  • It was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.
  • You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.
  • You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.
  • You made your mom buy one of those clips that would hold your shirt in a knot on the side.
  • You played the game “MASH”(Mansion, Apartment, Shelter, House).
  • You wore stonewashed Jordache jean jackets and were proud of it.
  • You know the profound meaning of ” WAX ON , WAX OFF”.
  • You wanted to be a Goonie.
  • You ever wore fluorescent clothing. (some of us…head-to-toe).
  • You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose fell off and his cheeks shifted.
  • You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.
  • You took lunch boxes to school…and traded Garbage Pail Kids in the schoolyard.
  • You remember the CRAZE, then the BANNING of slap bracelets.
  • You still get the urge to say “NOT” after every sentence.
  • You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you exchanged handmade friendship bracelets.
  • You ever owned a pair of Jelly-Shoes.
  • After you saw Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure you kept saying “I know you are, but what am I?”
  • You remember “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”
  • You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates.
  • You have ever played with a Skip-It.
  • You remember boom boxes and walking around with one on your shoulder like you were all that.
  • You remember watching both Gremlins movies.
  • You thought Doogie Howser/Samantha Micelli was hot.
  • You remember Alf, the lil furry brown alien from Melmac.
  • You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool…and don’t even flinch when people refer to them as “NKOTB”
  • You knew all the characters names and their life stories on “Saved By The Bell,” The ORIGINAL class.
  • You know all the words to Bon Jovi – SHOT THROUGH THE HEART.
  • You just sang those words to yourself.
  • You still sing “We are the World”
  • You tight rolled your jeans.
  • You owned a banana clip.
  • You remember “Where’s the Beef?”
  • You used to (and probably still do) say “What you talkin’ ’boutWillis?”
  • You’re still singing shot through the heart in your head, aren’t you!

Heck, they did leave out some important things about the 80′s, like how about Thunder Cats, Rainbow Brite, Sweet Secrets, Glow Worm, Rose Petals, My Little Pony, and most important, Strawberry Shortcake!

I can’t really recall exactly how old I was when Strawberry Shortcake entered my life but I’m pretty sure I was in doll land bliss. Seriously..she was a doll that smelled like strawberries, what wasn’t to love here? It was the innovation of the 1980′s and every little girl was foaming at the mouth to own such a doll!

Cake Beauty celebrates Strawberry Shortcake’s 30th Birthday and celebrates in style with a Canadian beauty release that includes decadently scented products that will bring back the 80′s for every girl who’s in their 30′s!

Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips Review, Swatches, Photos

Etude House Miss Tangerine Sweet Shower Lips 1

As you know from my prior Musings Korean Brand, Etude House has released Miss Tangerine which is a collection that features vibrant shades of orange for Spring.

So far, Miss Tangerine has been a fun journey but some of the lip products haven’t quite lived up to my expectations. The stains had a way bitter taste and the two selections of lipsticks were a bit too orange for me!

With all this in mind I didn’t set my hopes to high for the last of the lip products featured with the collection which are the Sweet Shower Lips.

Clinique Pretty in Prints Milly for Clinique Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Clinique Pretty in Prints Milly for Clinique Palette 2

Milly designer Michelle Smith brings a whimsical touch to Clinique’s Spring Collection 2011 with the Pretty in Prints Palette. You may have a tiny case of deja vu here as the Pretty in Prints Palette does so remind me of the Holiday 2010 Strawberry Fudge Palette but this time we go a bit peachy rather than pink!

The palette features four shades of shadow, blush, applicators, a how to guide, and a Milly drawstring pouch for stashing it all in!

Review: Obsessed with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 3

Tired, dry skin…mmm I’m coming out of hibernation now kids and I don’t really love how my skin looks in the harsh light of Spring. I’m pretty dry, pretty dull, and pretty tired looking.

The seasons are changing so I really want to start getting my skin into Spring mode. It’s always a difficult time since it takes a hot second for my skin to adjust to the fact that it’s not freezing cold outside anymore and it really doesn’t need heavy duty moisturizers!

To eliminate fatigue and make my face appear rested, smooth, and brighter I reach for Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, because that’s just it, in a FLASH, it makes me look all kinds of fresh and well rested!

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage Review

Skin Food Lettuce Cucumber Massage 1

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Massage is an oil-free massage gel with lettuce and cucumber extracts that provides water and nutrients to skin.

I’m a huge fan of the Lettuce & Cucumber Collection and it’s my skincare of choice for Summer. I’ve had the massage gel laying about for a while but I never actually sit around massaging my face. Anyone actually embrace the technique?

A facial massage facilitates blood circulation and relaxes skin while helping with wrinkles thus a massage gel with good glide is always helpful.

Gimmick? Who knows! Lush Cosmetics had instructions and a video for giving oneself a full face massage which proved interesting and many Asian products and magazines recommend such techniques but I honestly don’t have the patience for it…I’m already doing way TOO much with my skin as is, now I need to massage it too?
