PLEASE SHARE- My puppy broke her leg yesterday, and needs emergency surgery.

Zora broke her leg yesterday when we were playing frisbee in a public park. No one asked if we were ok or offered to help me get her to my car. Thank god I had my phone with me. I called Andrew and told him he needed to come home NOW and come save us. I waited there holding her screaming in my arms for almost an hour for him to fight through traffic. We called the vet and the only appointment they had was in another hour and a half. We tried to just keep her comfortable until we could get her into the vet and get some pain meds. We were all hoping for just a sprain, but it was immediately clear when we saw the x-ray that her leg was not only broken in half, but also had additional fractures in the bone.

Zora's Xray

If you can donate to us, we are eternally grateful. If you can’t please share this post or the video so we can get the word out. We really only have a day or two of her in the hospitalbefore we have to just put a cast on it and pray it heals ok enough that someday she’ll be able to use it again.

elf Essential Lipstick Swatches (On Lips)

I promised I’d do a collection video of all the elf Essential Lipsticks and swatches on lips for you from my recent elf haul, so here they are!

I had an amazing birthday week (almost 2 weeks ago now lol) and will have a video up soon where I talk all about it! We went out of town and had a lot of fun, and now I’m working my butt off to get ready to move! I can’t talk much about that yet, but I promise soon I’ll be able to talk about it more.

They are only $1 and you can order them online or go to Target. The 11 shades are:

Classy: Dupe for MAC Angel

Freeman Beauty Pineapple Enzyme Mask- #FaceMaskFriday No. 1

Hey ladies! I’m so excited to finally start my #FaceMaskFriday series! I’ve been thinking about doing it for so long now, and I can’t be happier that I finally started!

I don’t know about you, but nothing relaxes me more from the long week than stripping out of my work clothes by the time I’m up the stairs, throwing on my oldest and most comforatable pajamas, pouring a (big) glass of wine, and slapping on a face mask! TBH, it’s usually accompanied by a obsessive amount of YouTube videos in front of my computer or on my phone while in the bath tub. My boyfriend plays his video games, I catch up on all my favorite YouTubers… it’s a win win.

This is the same mask I’ve been using for a minimum of 10 years, but probably closer to 15 years. My sister brought home a Christmas 3-pack from Rite Aid that had this one, the peel off cucumber one, and the mint clay one. We loved pulling the peel off ones off each other’s face, and used to try to cheat by applying the clay mask and blow drying our faces so we didn’t have to wait as long! (Don’t try that at home!)

Freeman makes a whole range of amazing masks, and I’ll be covering most (if not all) of them in the upcoming weeks.

You can buy the full size for $3.99, or a sample pack for $1.99. I see them go BOGO at Ulta about 3 times a year and take advantage of the sale to stock up and try new ones. You can also order from their website.

Pineapple Enzyme Mask- from their website:

This enzyme-activated exfoliating mask revitalizes and reveals your most radiant skin. Pineapple Extract and exfoliating AHAs clear away dulling skin cells and stimulate skin renewal. Skin is revived and refreshed. Perfect for normal to combination skin.

Directions: Massage gently onto damp skin. Rinse well. Use three or four times a week.”

Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) helps remove dead skin cells, assists skin tone and skin texture. When you’re using an AHA, it’s really important to remember your sunscreen for the next few days!

Onto the video!

(SOOOOOOooo Sorry that this wasn’t able to be posted on Friday! I tried for the last 3 days to get YouTube to process my upload, but something was wrong with my Java plugin and it wouldn’t finish uploading!)

Next Friday (the 15th) is my birthday! Send me photos of you with a face mask on to make my day! @sarahlovescoffee on Instagram or @LipstickDupe everywhere else!

July Favorites 2014

Holy crap it’s August 5th already! I’m sorry I’m almost a week late on these, hope you don’t mind too much!

But first, HAPPY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO MY BEST FRIEND! I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since you got married in the redwoods! Congratulations dear! 

This month was a month of discovery for me. I bought a crap-ton of new things, and to my surprise loved A LOT of them! I’m a super picky person, and even more so when it comes to makeup. When something works for me, I’ll do/wear the same thing over and over and over and over again.  My boyfriend calls it my ability to loop- and I do it with songs to. I can easily listen to the same song on repeat all day.

ANYWAYS- July Favorites! I’m in an ultra peppy mood today! Woo!

Makeup Graveyard- Makeup I’m Tossing

Hello & Happy Monday! This weekend I FINALLY sat down and filmed a video I’ve been trying to get around to filming for SO LONG!

This was inspired by a) moving a year ago and b) PinkSoFoxy’s Declutter Your Life series. My boyfriend and I went through a crazy decluttering of our own two years ago after reading Clutter Busting by Brooks Palmer and let so much of our stuff go to better homes. But the one thing I never got around to cleaning out was my makeup.

So when we moved last October, I sat down and pulled out all the old, expired, or never used products. I’m ashamed to admit I think I only saved about half of what I threw away back then for this video, but I think this is a pretty good sum anyways.

They’ve been sitting in a drawer waiting for me to blog or film about, and Tati of GlamLifeGuru started doing her Makeup Graveyard videos, and then Allison Anderson just did a post on her blog about clearing out her lipstick drawer… and I just needed to sit down and film it for you! (links to those at the end if you want to watch/read them)

So, what’s in your makeup graveyard?

If you do a post or a video, leave a link in the comments! I can’t wait to see them!

I know some of the swatches didn’t show up very will on camera, so here’s some more up close photos! (I didn’t edit any of the photos so hopefully the colors come across as true as possible!)

How To Shave Your Legs

Are you just learning how to shave, but not sure where to start? Never fear, I’m here to teach you how to shave your legs and armpits! Here’s almost 15 years of shaving tips in 20 mins!

Let me be your sister for the day and teach you all the tricks I know, okay? I’ll also answer questions like “When should I start shaving? How far up my legs should I shave? Can everyone see my hair growing out? Does shaving make my hair grow back faster?”

Let me know if you have any questions!


1) Exfoliate! Let your skin soak while you’re in the shower for 5-10 mins before you start shaving so it has time to soften the hairs.
2) Shave! SLOWLY until you learn your body! Then you can go a little faster. Rinse your razor every swipe!
3) Moisturize! Lotion up!

Products I recommend:
A good razor! (Like a Gilette Venus, Bic Soleil, or Dollar Shave Club. Buy the Venus at Costco for the best price! 1 pack will last about 6-12 months!)
Shave Gel! (I like the Aveeno for Sensitive Skin)
St. Ives Apricot Scrub (generic versions are great!)
A natural loofa!
If you want to try out the Dollar Shave Club, click here for their site or click this link to help get me free razors! (Not affiliate, they’re just an awesome company that gives rewards to their customers for recommending new people!)

I won a giveaway! Adore Cosmetics

Hi all! I just wanted to quickly share something exciting: I won my first prize EVER! I entered on Twitter or Rafflecopter…. I don’t really remember. I was so surprised when they told me I won a few weeks later!

I’m one of those people who just have bad luck with winning prizes; raffles, giveaways, claw machines, carnival games… Whereas my older brother wins every single thing he enters. He’s won a year of ice cream, a wind surfing board, teddy bears the size of Mars, and more wacky stuff. I guess you could say he has all the luck.

Anyways, Adore Organic Innovation (or just Adore Organics) was hosting a giveaway and I entered and won! When I was giving them my address I mentioned that this was the first time I’d ever won anything, and they added some extra samples too!

I am in love with the lotion! It’s been about a week since I shot this video, and I loveeee the lotion! It’s amazing and I will probably buy it from their website once I run out.

Muah! Thank you Adore!

I’m loving the shining/buffing block too! My hands are loving you!

I’ll let you know on Twitter or Instagram when I use the samples. I can’t to use the 24K gold one!

Hask Keratin Protein Deep Conditioner

Hello beautiful!

Yes, you. Sitting there with your left hand on your face and one leg tucked up under you. :) (Was I right?)

I discovered a super cheap hair mask that I am now OBSESSED with, and I want you to know about it too. My hair has been super soft, un-frizzy, and manageable since I did the mask on Saturday morning and I can’t wait to use the other half of the package! My hair is shortish right now so I didn’t need to use the whole packet, but if my hair was still long I could see myself applying the whole thing no problem. It smells really nice and you let it sit for about 10 mins. I let mine sit in for about 15, and then rinsed it out. I was really scared that it would be hard to get it all out of my hair, but it only took marginally longer to rinse it out vs a normal conditioner.

So, have you tried anything from Hask? Is there something else from the line I should try?

What’s your HOLY GRAIL hair mask/treatment? My top favs are the Hayashi System 911 Emergency Pak, the L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm (the yellow one), coconut oil, and then the Hask Keratin Protein Deep Conditioner
