{i feel pretty, oh so pretty} : my top 5 beauty must-haves

What makes you feel {pretty}?

(And who now has that song stuck in their head?)

The last couple days I have been feeling very blah so I decided to whip out my Top 5 Beauty Must-Haves that make me feel oh-so-pretty and share them with you...

1. Baby oil.
Not trying to be weird here, but I love baby oil. I use it instead of body lotion. Partly because I am lazy, and partly because I am cheap. For $3/month my skin stays glowing and baby soft, and it is easy to just slather it on after a shower, quick rinse, towel dry. Lurrrve my baby oil.

2. High heels.
These are not my fabulous legs or my Louboutins, but even I can go from shlup to sassy just by putting on a pair of 4 inch heels. Sometimes I wear them around the house. With my sweatpants. Just 'cause.

3. Bronzer.
I'm no Snookie...but I love to be tan. At least a little tan. So when I am going out and feel a little pale I am instantly energized when I use some mineral bronzer with a touch of glitter. Oh yes, I did, in fact, say glitter.

4. Bright scarves!
This is my go-to accessory to feel lovely. Jeans, t-shirt, scarf. Something about a fun, bright pattern hanging loosely around my neck makes me feel cozy and chic at the same time...and brightens my mood!

5. Clear lip gloss.
You know, the really shiny, plumping kind? I don't know why I bother, as it ends up being licked off unconsciously within the first hour, but for that first five minutes my lips look, well, fantastic - and shiny!

{So what are your top 5 beauty must-haves?}



  1. 1. Nail polish-toes and nails
    2. curl the hair
    3. High heels-completely agree:)
    4. Jewelry
    5. nice pair of jeans

  2. Absolute Must haves for survival:(in no particular order)

    **Cute Jewelry whether statement pieces or classics


    **Fierce Shoes

    **MAC eye paint in stilife. Nothing on the market compares and 1 tube lasts 6 months.No creasing no smudging no movement in the eye makeup department even in 90 degree weather.


  3. Pedicure!
    Highlights(Unfortunately I like the blonde)
    Purple eyeshadow
    Smile :)


  4. 1. Since I'm a redhead - MASCARA
    2. I always wear perfume, even on the weekends when I don't leave the house.
    3. Chapstick - one by the bed, one in each purse, one at my computer, one by the couch
    4. Yummy toothpaste - you can't beat a great smile!


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
