It's been rumored that people are spotting Gwen Stefani's, Harajuku Lovers at Target. As of right now, it's limited to just school supplies, but here's to hoping they bring L.A.M.B to Target as well.

I will def be at Target this weekend searching for this... school starts soon... I have to look fashionable.

Beauty On A Budget

It's no surprise that the economy is still hurting and people are budgeting like no other nowadays, and I'm no exception. I've always been one to budget, the boyfriend often laughs at me because I will see something that's over $20, freak out, and then put it back. Most of my clothes are from Forever 21, Love Culture, or Target and are normally on sale or under $20 (I don't know where my infatuation of not spending over $20 comes from). To cut costs, I'm all about giving myself mani's/pedi's (although every now and then I'll treat myself to a salon pedi....with a discount coupon of course) and doing my own waxing, hair coloring, etc. just to save a buck or two. The only thing that I haven't really budgeted on is my makeup, I LOVE my MAC, but this week has been rough (I didn't even get my Starbucks this morning,....the horror) money wise and I had to do a little penny pinching....but let me tell you, I've found some awesome stuff, let me show you.

The bf and I were having a Sunday date so I needed to get ready and my face put on:

I first put on my concealer that I've had and then I wanted my powder to cover up my blotchy skin. I'm always skeptical to purchase powder at Target, Wal-Mart or some other drugstore because you never know the right color you will get, but I took a chance on Loreal's Color Match powder (I read the little helpful hints, chose my color, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best). When I went home and put the powder on, wouldn't you know, it did what it said it would do and the color matched perfect, and it only cost me $8 compared to the $30 I spend on MAC Studio Fix
I've told you before about E.L.F. cosmetics where everything costs from $1.00-$3.00. You can get everything online or most Targets now carry it. I put E.L.F. eyeshadow primer, along with Glow Blush, and highlighted my eyes (so I didn't look tired) with E.L.F.'s highlighter. All three items cost me $3. 

To finish out my bronzy look, I used Cover Girls Gold Sizzle Eyeshadow- which only cost me $3. 

I threw on some lipgloss that I have at home and went on my Sunday date with the bf. Although I doubt I'll leave my MAC forever, it's nice to know, I can take a little break from it and still remain decent looking. LOL. 

Now, it's not my greatest makeup look, but at least I won't scare the kids with my unmasked, no makeup face when I hit the public...LOL... this is how my $15 or so makeup looked when done. As you can see, the powder matched my skin tone. Wooop!

Sweet Valley Confidential

If you're a child of the 80's/early 90's then you remember Francine Pascal's "Sweet Valley Twins" and "Sweet Valley High" books. I didn't have the greatest upbringing and the Sweet Valley Twins books got me through many scary nights. I would sit there and read and read for hours on end. I loved these books!!! Well, Francine is back at it again, this time bringing you Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, but 10 years later. So basically, they're our age!!!!! I am sooo looking forward to this new series. Are you?

Best Friends Forever

Get the new BFF bracelet for a good cause. When you purchase one of these babies for only $10, go online and register it. A soldier will then receive an identical bracelet to wear which is engraved with a special number linking the two of you together.

25% of the purchase price will help support veterans through the American Freedom Foundation.

A few celebs have already started rocking it, so should you.

Who's That Girl Revealed

A couple of weeks ago I posted a video of the celebrity muse who would be the face of Madonna's Material Girl clothing line, and well, it's none other than Little J, Taylor Momsen herself. Interesting pick if you ask me.... on another post I did on Little J, she was rocking some stripper heels. Hopefully Madonna knows what she's doing. I would have thought, Madonna would have picked her own daughter, Lourdes.

Reggae Bush

Reggie Bush is not only gorgeous, but he's hilarious as well!
