We were up at stupid o’clock on Saturday to hit up the orchards and do some apple picking. The orchard is a two hour drive away so at the butt crack of dawn we were on the road and a little exhausted by the time 11ish rolled around but at least we had apples to last us through the zombie apocalypse.
Actually, crazy but true, I make apple butter. I burn boiling water but one thing I can make is damn good apple butter!
Needless to say we were hungry after our adventures so we hit up Cracker Barrel which is a novelty in itself since we don’t really have it around our area. I absolutely adore the fact that Cracker Barrel has a little country store right in the waiting area. So even if you’re starving and feeling like you’re about to die if you don’t get some waffles and eggs in your stomach immediately you won’t mind the long wait for a table on a busy Saturday morning because you’ll be wandering aimlessly around their little store as you wait for your table! They have cute little bits and bobs, old time candy (holler at me peanut chews), and really unique little finds even beauty ones in some cases.
Which brings me to my purchase of Dionis Peppermint Hand Cream!
Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips Lipstick ($9.50) are an adorable new moisturizing cream lipstick that Etude House released with their new Disney collobration entitled XoXo Minnie Collection.
Whether you’re a fond fan of Minnie Mouse or you just love cute little makeup purchases you’re sure to adore the Etude House Minnie Kissing Lips Lipstick!
Possibly one of the best and cheapest glosses on the market right now is the NYX Butter Gloss ($5) in my opinion. These beautifully flavored glosses are available in twelve shades…
But that’s part of my problem.
Softsoap Wintermint Snowfall Moisturizing Body Wash ($3.48) is one of two new, limited edition Softsoap Holiday 2013 Body Washes launching exclusively at Walmart.
This is an excellent budget pick for stuffing stockings or keeping for yourself this Holiday season. I happen to be a great lover of anything minty in my body wash so I’m loving this scent.
It gets me right in the mood for the Holiday season with burst of sweet, fresh mint!
Take a peek!
The Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge ($18) recently launched and I couldn’t be happier as it has made me a double cleanser lover. I have a few Konjac Sponges, they aren’t really a new beauty epidemic however, Boscia will likely make them a more wide spread phenomenon here in the US for those that aren’t terribly familiar with Asian beauty tools and products.
As much as I’d like to be a double cleaning person I’m not. When I get home at the end of the night I typically remove my eye makeup with an oil based eye makeup remover and proceed to follow up with a cleansing oil. Occasionally if I have the time I do a double cleanse. Double cleanses consist of cleansing first with a cleansing oil and following up with a lathering cleanser or foaming cleanser of some sort.
Konjac Sponges kinda make you a believer of double cleansing because they are great gentle exfoliating sponge that really get your face super squeaky clean.
Take a look!
