1. Bobbi Brown Dress for Success Set - a really incredible gift from my mom, who knows how obsessed I am with Bobbi products. It's a Macy's exclusive, and all the proceeds are donated to the charity "Dress for Success" which empowers women by providing support, training, and clothing so that they can become self-supporting. This set must be flying off the shelves, because it's no longer available online. If you're interested I would check in-store.
2. Kirkland by Borghese Age-defying Protective Moisturizing Lotion SPF15 - Picked this up at Costco for $13 because I ran out of all my sample sized SPF lotions. Normally I avoid most drugstore / cheaper brands (like Olay, Aveeno) at Costco because their companies or parents companies are all animal-testing guilty. However, I didn't really want to shell out $50 for a dept. store brand SPF day lotion, so I picked up the Borghese lotion. They're not PETA approved, however the back of the packaging claims "Product not tested on animals" and there's little other info out there, so I'm trusting what I see for now. According to the package, key ingredients include Rice Bran Protein, Mineral Salts, and Sea Salts. That sounds nice, but I'll see if it agrees with my sensitive skin and review it later.
3. OPI Guy meets Gal-Veston - After seeing this on Short N Chic , I started lemming this polish. I like my nail polish to be sheer and shiny, but I also like bright colors. This polish is all those rolled into one! I now have a need for jellies (or sorbets shall I say--- ha). Must. Get. More. OPI Big hair, big nails was my top choice, but apparently it was everyone else's favorite too. Ulta was clean out of that color only. Fortunately, there's always Amazon!
Well, that just about wraps things up. In terms of life, my presentation went better than I expected, although there are still loose ends I need to tie up this weekend. Work was pretty intense the last couple weeks, however a few things got me through, including coffee (duh), flowers from the fiance, and taking quick breaks here and there to read everyone's blog posts. So thanks to all you bloggers for brightening my days =).
P.S. Can you believe there's still sporadic snow? It's April! As in month of rain showers and flowers!! I just bought a planter box that I'm going to fill with yummy greens this summer, but it looks like I shouldn't start planting anytime soon.
