I finished Makeup Graveyard and now I’m looking to fill out my lipsticks with some new and exiting shades… of MAC lipstick dupes!

Seriously, I can’t remember the last time I bought a lipstick without knowing that it was a dupe for something!

Makeup Graveyard Day 11- SAMPLES

Makeup Graveyard day 11 samples

I know I am not the only one who has that basket somewhere in your house full of samples. 3 free with every Sephora order. Free samples with purchase. Free gift bags FULL of samples with purchase. Sample boxes. Subscription boxes that fill empty space with samples.

I try pretty hard to use up my sample stash- I keep the sample bucket on my vanity and try to set out 2-5 each week to use. But good god do those little bastards stack up!

I’m trying a new strategy of splitting up my sample bucket into smaller piles/stacks/containers- one for hair, one for lotion, one for perfumes, etc. So far it’s working really well and you will see that in action when you see my next empties video!

Do you have a mad samples stash? How do you get through them, or do they just stack up?

If this level of samples continues, I’m going to give everyone a bouquet of them for Christmas this year…

Makeup Graveyard Day 10 Haircare

Makeup Graveyard day 10 haircare

Good morning and happy Saturday friends!

Only 2 more videos till the end of this series! So far I haven’t had any review requests on the products I’m letting go of, so at the end of this if no one wants to see any I’m going to send it all of to my sister, my mom, my bff, or the dump. Let me know for real if you want any reviews on the old stuff!


Makeup Graveyard Day 10 Haircare

How do these things even stack up like this?! I think it’s because I don’t usually spend any time staring into the depths of under my bathroom sink… it’s scary down there! Even tho the cabinet stays clean and organized, I’ve had a phobia of under sinks since I was a kid. I think it’s because we used to have a really bad spider problem, and spiders scare the shit out of me… No joke.

How do you organize your haircare? Do you keep in under your sink or do you have an “above ground” storage system? Let me know if you’ve found a better way than under your sinks!!

Things I’m Keeping:

  • Herbal Essence Curl Boosting Mouse
  • CVS Eye Makeup Remover
  • Dove Dry Shampoo
  • Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil
  • Rimmel Eye Makeup Remover
  • Dr. Bronner’s Citrus Soap
  • elf Brush Shampoo
  • Orgaix Moroccan Oil
  • Salon Selective 3 Min Hair Therapy
  • Joico Humidity Blocker
  • Paul Mitchel Super Skinny Serum

Makeup Graveyard Day 9 Lotions

makeup Graveyard day 9 lotions


Does anyone else feel this way?

Good lord I need to start reading ingredients before I buy things… Some of these were gifts and some of these were samples, but most of these were impulse buys and man of man I have to stop!

In case you were wondering about the Cetaphil comment…
Why Cetaphil Is The Devil: http://beautybets.com/2012/01/31/why-cetaphil-is-the-devil/
The Body Shop body butters are actually really good ingredients! They have one or two alcohols, but that’s about all I can complain about. On the other hand, looking at the ingredients of the Bath & Body lotions? Not so good… Don’t think I will be repurchasing anything from their Signature line anymore…

Let me know if there are any products you want me to review before I toss them!

Dollar Tree Haul #6 | Summer Stuff! | April 24 2015

Dollar Tree Haul 5 Summer Supplies

The urge to go back and get EVERYTHING is intense. I love decorating for summer, and we finally have a back yard/patio and I want to make it super cheery! But, I’d also like to invest in some pieces of decor/cups/etc that will last a long time and are made of materials that are labeled BPA/BPS free. I do really want a couple of those coconuts cups tho… too cute, and would keep the bugs out of your drink!

I did go back and get 5 more food tents (for $1? Hell yes I’m stocking up!) and some candy, some cumin, some candy, and 5 packs of stickers that are just the cutest things in the world! Also 1 roll of washi. I wanted to get more of those microfiber mats because they are just the cutest ones I’ve ever seen, but they were all out of the patterned ones and just had solids left.

White Rain Botique Collection at the Dollar Tree

I found the White Rain Botique Collection at my Dollar Tree! Has anyone tried them? Are any of them worth it? Comment below!White Rain Botique Collections at the Dollar Tree

They had makeup remover, foot lotion, face scrub…White Rain Botique Collection at Dollar Tree

Perfect for the patioI grabbed the ‘It’s 5 O’clock somewhere’ sign and it is SO cute out on the patio! Perfect for summer BBQs! Coconut Cups from the Dollar Tree
