Friday Favorites!

Empties, a new old outfit and a dog mustache

During February, while I was under a self-imposed shopping moratorium, I used up many different beauty products.

All gone!
The first to go was my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream. I really like the level of coverage it provides as well as the moisturizing and smoothing effects. I will definitely buy it again.
Next to go was the Scentsy perfume solid. I LOVED the smell of it (My Wish) and got lots of compliments on it. If I'm ever invited to another Scentsy party, I would order it again. However, I'm a creature of convenience so unless that happens, I probably won't get around to it.
Then was the Cover Girl Clean makeup remover for eyes and lips. I didn't really like it. It didn't work very well and my eyes felt crusty the next morning. So when that ran out I turned to regular ol' Baby Oil. It worked great and I now use it on my entire face every night to remove my makeup before washing with a mild soap.
The Clinique Moisture Surge gel-creme in travel size was part of a free gift with purchase a while back. I used it at night mostly or during the day when dry spots occurred. It felt great and even the next morning still continued to feel smooth and hydrated. It's expensive though! $37 for 1.7 oz. I may not buy it on it's own for that reason; but if you have the money it's worth it!
Beyond the Zone Get'n Creamed hair smoothing cream was the last to go. It's the best smoothing cream I've ever owned and made my hair incredibly soft. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued so I can't get more. :-(

Horrible photos of a fabulous outfit
I know those pictures are terrible, but I really liked this outfit! It was my favorite outfit of the week, made up of things I've owned for quite some time. The top is from a general store in my hometown (2010), the skirt is F21 (2012), leggings from Ross (2012) and boots from Payless (2008). The belt came on a shirt I bought at JcPenny in 2011 and the locket is from an estate sale from last summer. It was fun to mix together a "new" outfit with older items!

The Mustache Pup
We have Tucker a haircut. I started it on Wednesday but didn't have time to finish. Tim finished the haircut on Thursday and I was surprised to see he left Tucker's mustache full-sized! I think Tuck looks pretty adorable with his under bite and mustache; but I think that's how most people feel about their funny-looking fur babies. ;-)

I'm hoping to get some time and photo help this weekend so I can share an outfit post with you all next week.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
