February Fun!

For a the shortest month of the year, February was certainly full AND fun! I thought I’d share the highlights with you today as we wrap up this last full week.

Paint – We had all of the downstairs of our house painted (except my husband’s office). After 9 1/2 years of living here, it really needed to be freshened up! I chose to cover the original khaki color with WHITE! It’s called, Blue Kiss. It has slight cast of blue in the white, rather than gray, brown or yellow. I love it! It really brightens the rooms up. I chose a semi-gloss and love how it reflects the light. I know it’s going to be easier to clean as well.

Three Beauty Products I love – $3 or Under!

With prices on the rise, it’s pretty great to find beauty products that are both effective in use AND in price!

One product I’ve been using for a couple of years that I love is the Elf Eyebrow Pencil. I have purchased it most times at Target where it sells for $3. However, I looked on Amazon this week and found it for $2!! I like it better than many others that i tried that were more expensive. It is creamy, but stays in place. The pencil swivels up, so there’s no sharpening needed. The other end has a brow brush. It comes in a variety of shades. My choice is Blonde. This is just a great brown pencil!

The next two items are new hair products I recently picked up after Whitney told me about them. It’s great when you daughters give good suggestions, isn’t it?! I have thick hair that can lay flat without some kind of volumizing help! Herbal Essence has two products – a mousse and a hairspray that give volume.

Herbal Essence Mousse is nice and foamy – a promise of good things to come. It didn’t make my hair sticky, just more full.

The hair spray isn’t sticky, but holds things in place after I style it.

Each of these products were $2.99 at Target. WARNING – it seems, like lots of good things these days, it can be hard to find, and in some cases its price is upwards to $10! I was blessed to find several cans at my local Target store.

Don’t be fooled – good things don’t always have to cost a fortune!

What products do you love that are cost effective? I’d love to hear!
