The Coupon App that You Need Now

Ibotta coupon app

Friends! I am so excited to share with you an amazing new coupon app I have discovered, Ibotta!

Ibotta Coupon App

Let me start by saying, I AM NOT A COUPON GIRL. I have tried, but I find the whole thing just too much organizing and planning for my current state of life. Which is officially “hot mess”. Probably always will be.

But this app is super easy to use and takes the work out of it for you. I promise, I wouldn’t waste time on it if it wasn’t super easy, and I certainly wouldn’t suggest it to my readers if I didn’t think it was awesome. {read more}

Eyelash Extensions: Are they worth it?

Over the holidays I tried eyelash extensions for the first time. Let me tell you, they are amazing!

If you aren’t familiar with eyelash extensions, it’s a beauty procedure where individual false eyelashes (about 90 individual lashes!) are essentially glued to your real eyelashes. The extensions stay on for a few weeks and start to fall out as your natural lashes fall out with their normal growth cycle.

I purchased a groupon for the eyelash extensions at a great deal, otherwise they are super expensive. I can see how they are addicting though! I didn’t wear mascara at all while I had them on, and rarely wore eye makeup. This was awesome, I wear contacts and I loved not using eye makeup, especially mascara. I didn’t have that smudge of mascara under my eyes halfway through the day that add to my lovely genetically imposed dark under eye circles. {read more}

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! I mean I’m a full-time mom so it’s all the same to me. But yay for the freakin’ weekend.

I didn’t watch the Grammys but can we please all agree that The Biebs needs to shave the mustache? I mean, seriously. You are hurting my eyes and you were just starting to sort-of redeem yourself.

LAP: Speaking of bad styling choices, please view this very important video about LAP (Leggings As Pants) from Jen Hatmaker. Unless you are a toddler, the only exception to the LAP rule. {read more}

Have you tried beauty box subscriptions before? There are so many…Ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, Julep, etc. I liked this box because it’s by far the best value, and focused on skin care and hair care instead of makeup. Kind of a fun treat for yourself and a good way to try out new drugstore products without committing to buying a full-sized product. {read more}
