Show Us Your Life Beauty Tips

I am really excited to be participating in this week's Show Us Your Life over at Kelly's Korner. It's all about beauty tips and products which is a favorite topic of mine. Per my post below, I love make up, but completely clueless about applying it! I have been focusing on trying to get my appearance back in order since my pregnancy so I really looking forward to reading all of the great tips!!! Here are a few of mine that I love!


CHI FLAT IRON - This product is by far my favorite. I have tried a couple of flat irons, even a few of the more expensive ones from Sally Beauty Supply, and none of the hold a candle to the CHI. This thing is a miracle worker. I have very thick hair that has random waves through out. Nothing gets my hair as straight and smooth as this.

Before I use my CHI flat iron, I use this product by Aveda. It smooths out my hair and adds a protective barrier from the heat.

I love pretty much all Aveda products and use several of their styling products. A few other favorites are:


My favorite make up lines are MAC, NARS, and Aveda. A few of my favorite products are:

MAC STUDIO FIX POWDER PLUS FOUNDATION - I ran out of this product right before I went into labor and haven't had a chance to go to the mall to pick up a new one. I am thinking of just purchasing it on line and having it shipped to my house because I really miss it. I am using a drug store compact right now and it just isn't the same.


NARS EYE SHADOWS - I went to Chicago several years ago with friends. For fun, we had a NARS make over done at Barney's of New York. I loved all of their products, especially their shadows and lipgloss.



As a thirty something girl, I am sad to admit that I do not have that much of a skin care regime. I have been intrigued lately by all of the Olay Regenerist commercials and am thinking of picking up a few of their products. I do use the Olay Total Effects 7 - 1 Anti Agind Moisturizer Daily after a shower which I love.

I may be a thirty something, but seem to still have the skin of a teenager. I am prone to break outs and love the Clearasil Daily Face Wash. I have used this for years and love it. I have tried using other daily cleansers but will notice that I will start breaking out again once I stop using the Clearasil. I hope they never stop making this product or my skin is in big trouble!!!!

Be sure to post your favorite products here or on Kelly's Korner. I look forward to learning a few new tips!!!

Take care,


  1. I love Aveda!!! Can't imagine using anything else!! Have a great weekend.

  2. Aveda rocks!! I have picked some products up when I am out of town. It is a good thing that I do not live near one, I would be sooo broke!! I love your blog and congratulations on your little one, that is so awesome.I also struggled with infertility for two years with my now three year old daughter and then God blessed us with another baby when my daughter was only five months old. I am so excited for you, I would love to follow your story!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi Maria, I am feeling pretty well. Jill slept for 5 hours last night so things are going well. We just have to change her bedtime to an earlier hour, it's at 1am again!

  7. Our show us your life posts are very similar! LOVE aveda; although I've never used the smoothing gel which looks good. Love the pics of your house too! Thanks for feeding my blog addiction!

  8. Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! :) I think we do share the love for home decor...and AVEDA! I have been hooked for years and will never stop using it.

    I am going to have to go and get me one of those Chi Flat Irons so many put that on their list for Kelly's Beauty Tips....and you have convinced me after reading you have thick hair too. I need something better than the one I am using now.
