I have some new favorites that I’m loving lately and wanted to share them with you.
one // two // three
ONE// I’ve been using the Caldrea hand soap that Target sells for a couple of years now, but I have just recently tried their countertop cleaner.  Holy.  Cow.  I bought mine in the Green Tea Verbena scent and I want to spray myself down with the stuff it’s that good.  The best part though is how well it cleans my counters – zero film or streaks.  Clean counters and the house smells amazing.
TWO//  I just picked up this sleeveless blouse from J.Crew Factory yesterday.  I’m not normally a sleeveless kind of girl but it’s a winner.  The shoulders have a pretty little pleat at the front, it drapes beautifully, and it’s long enough to cover the wagon I’m draggin.  Done!
THREE// A friend of mine from college sent me the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes to try.  I’ll admit I was skeptical.  I’m blessed to have long lashes and I like the mascara I’m currently using.  But…. this turned out to be pretty darn fabulous stuff.  Here’s my before and after – Fiber Lashes on your left and regular mascara on your right (excuse the towel head):
You apply it after your normal mascara, and these teensy tiny fibers (made from green tea leaves) lie on top of your lashes to thicken and lengthen their appearance.  It looks like you’re wearing a really nice pair of fake eyelashes without having to mess with the glue, them coming part way off, or having them poke you in the eye every time you blink.  Now I don’t see myself wearing them to the grocery store, but dinner out or any time I need to up my game this will be my go to.  Check out Amy’s site here for more info.
I’m leaving you guys with this little sneak peek of the pillows I made for the back patio.  I’ll share more with you guys next week!
