Bits & Pieces Of What I Loved This Week

Can it be any stinking hotter these days??  Don’t get me wrong I love the heat but when it is too hot for me to drink my morning coffee we have a problem.  Obviously this is where iced coffee comes into play.  I haven’t quite mastered making it at home so in the meantime Starbucks is filling the need….and yes I know, the #icegate struggle is real, there is way too much ice, but it gives me the perfect opportunity to brush up on my social persuasion skills with the baristas

Vlog I enjoyed this week – The Sorry Girls, I particularly enjoyed this DIY.  I finally have a use for those belts that have shrunk 😉

With summer finally hear, I am tearing through books, in particular beach reads. I just finished C.J Duggans’ Paris Lights and I really enjoyed it.  It was one of those books  I was a little sad that I finished.  Thank god for Book Bub, I can indulge in beach reads all summer long

In the past when I  have tried the infamous hack of using rubbing alcohol to put back together my broken powder shadows and blushes and it has saved many products for me.  It never looks as pretty as the day  I ought it but it saves me big time money, because let’s face it, we only ever drop the makeup we spent a small fortune on.

So one day I was thinking about my empty little corrector container and what I could use it for as it seemed a waste to throw it out. And wham I had an idea.  Why not take some of my broken blush and set it in the corrector pot and add some rubbing alcohol and make myself a nice little travel size blush?!
