A daily lipstick I love!

When spring finally arrives, and yes, it has arrived, I saw the fat white guys' bellies shining in the sun outside my work window the other day and that's a sure sign. Anyway let's get that thought immediately back out of our minds and talk about new lipstick. I mostly always wear red lipstick except in the spring. I yearn for something pink! For the workday I really don't worry about whether or not lipstick lasts that long because I can always reapply but I do want it to last. I always wear Cover Girl Outlast lipstick in Ever-Red-dy whenever I want a lipstick that will stay put and that I will only have to reapply once and that's only a maybe. Like when I am going out for the day, have lunch plans or I am doing something after work but unfortunately that color is really the only color I like in that line. In looking for an everyday lipstick, I tried Maybelline Super Stay which was ok but after awhile I found I didn't favor the smell of it. I also tried L'Oreal Infallible which I liked but found a bit too shiny and messy to suit me even though I did love the colors available. I also tried Revlon Colorstay but wasn't overwhelmed with love for it either. None of those lipsticks were that particularly long lasting on me and for the price tag I decided to keep looking for an everyday lipstick I can put on easily in the morning without painting on. I was even getting to the point of money not being an issue.

I have been reviewing long last lipsticks and I decided I was finally going to splurge and go for MAC Longwear which seems to get the best reviews but at $18 a tube I cannot afford to just try a color so I plan to get a red and then if I like the lipstick, which I so hope I do, I will try another color. I thought I might even venture to the mall and look at colors if I liked It. I am so much  in need of a second lipstick I love I am willing to spend money and go to the mall!

While looking through reviews I kept coming across ladies suggesting Wet and Wild Megalast lipstick which sells at drugstores and large department stores for under $2. It sounded like a no brainer to me to at least try it. At lunchtime I ventured to my local Walgreens and I'll be damned if it wasn't on sale for $1.49. I got 8 tubes for under $13 which included the tax! It took a little bit to find it in the store. It's one of those brands that set out in the aisle (which I always think of teenagers when I see) but I did find it in the makeup area also down by where the nail stuff starts. I highly recommend it. As an everyday lipstick that you don't have to keep reapplying or worry about your hair being strangely attracted to it can't be beat!!

I'll show off my reds I purchased after my MAC tube arrives :o)

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

The Cabbage Patch Kids inspired crochet hat

I just love Cabbage Patch Kids! Years ago my dad went on a mission to get me one when they were hard to find. With the invent of the internet you can almost find anything these days but back in the day it wasn't so easy. He finally succeeded but there was always a story about what a time he had. He was able to get me two in the long run. The first a little boy named Bobby George (my dad's name was Bobby also) just in case he couldn't get his hands on a girl with red hair. Luckily eventually someone was able to get the girl doll for him to give to me. I was so pleased to get them and he was so happy giving them to me that it is a memory I will always treasure. Whenever I think of Cabbage Patch dolls I always think of him. I get them out once in awhile and clean them up but I hope to display them after I paint my second bedroom which I hope to make whimsical and colorful. Arlene looked like she could use a bit of sprucing up when I got her out for pictures so I'm not su…

Dreaming of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Ok, so last night I had a dream that I was standing on the roof watching the Red Hot Chili Peppers play "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" and I was featured in the video. I was looking great in a cute outfit with some type of hat and having a ball! lol The next thing I know I'm running through the jungle looking worse for wear with a dinosaur chasing me.  We watched an episode of Terra Nova and then Jurassic Park III was on so I know why I was dreaming of dinosaurs but where did the Red Hot Chili Peppers come from? I was so excited I woke up and had to pee!

How cool can you get?
I love a man that cooks! Although Flea scares me a bit!
Now this is a fashion statement if I ever saw one.

Saturday was date night!

♥ Dress:  Modcloth ♥ Sweater:  Ralph Lauren ♥ Booties: Modcloth-boots
On Saturday morning snoozing late was a must after all that booze on Friday night. After finally getting up I was still tired and since my favorite show recorded the night before I wanted to watch it while I tried to wake up. I absolutely love Haven! Although it's just one more reason to stay out of Maine :o) Art got up early and went to breakfast with his brothers and washed the car so I had the house to myself. If I wanted to watch tv in the morning, why not? I mean I was going to be another year older the next day so I figured I could do whatever I wanted. Although not productive I didn't have to wonder what strange occurrences were happening in that strange little town. I did finally get up and do a bit of housework since my family were coming over the next day for cake but I only gave it a lick and a promise. Before I knew it it was time to get ready. I bought my dress from Modcloth when they had the …
