What I've Been Up To!

Happy Weekend everyone! Over the past few days I have been trying to decide on the scents of my Fall candle line for my new business venture. (I'll post all about this soon!) I finally decided on Maple Pecan Strudel, Pumpkin Pie, Spiced Cranberry, Apple Cider and Cinnabun. What do you think?

Anyways, I got several of those made up and put them in our gift shop. So far they seem to be a big hit. People also still seem to be buying up my left overs from spring...which is great! I'm also working on getting our web store back up so I can sell online again. So needless to say I've been a busy girl!

On another note, I am, and have been for a very long time, a cosmetic-a-holic! But what girl is not!? Here are 2 great products I have picked up lately that I wanted to share with you guys!

1. Sally Hanson Natural Lip Butter Shimmer

I am in love with this stuff! I actually picked it up at my local Dollar Tree...who knew!! It is a moisturising lip balm with a hint of sheer color and a slight bit of shimmer. The first time I put it on I could tell a difference in the way my lips looked and felt. It is made from 94% natural ingredients and the packaging is also environmentally friendly. This is, in my opinion, a must have for the cold weather coming up! And at $1, you can't beat it! I just went back and got 3 more!

2. Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara
I always had a hard time finding a mascara that adds length and volume while being waterproof all at the same time, until now! I picked this up today and was so excited, I tried it out as soon as I got home. As far as mascaras go, this is the best one I have ever tried. It lengthened and added lots of volume to my lashes without me having to use my eyelash curler. But when I did use my eyelash curler, they looked even better! I would really recommend this to any of you ladies who need a dual action mascara like me!

Do any of you ladies use any of these products? What do you think about them? Are there any other products you use that you just can't live without?

P.S. Before I go, I wanted to let y'all know about 2 great giveaways going on out there in the blogasphere!

1. College Prep is doing a giveaway for an Angela Moore bracelet of your choice!

2. Coffee at Nordstrom has a giveaway going on for a monogrammed tumbler!
