Do you have it? If so, what do use to organize within the drawers? 

Re: Joyful June Hauls!

I don't...I'm on the hunt for a new one. I had something similar in my old apartment and I used silverware organizers in the drawers to keep everything separate. It actually worked really well for mascaras, eyeliners, etc. Some have a little bit wider compartments and I could fit my quads, blushes and what not in them..worked pretty well for most things. upload_3996410716082987392.jpg

image.jpgShazam! this little baby arrived before my husband did...Can I confess to you guys that I have some empty boxes shoved under the bed? LOL! He wouldn't be mad...I just don't want to admit I am purchasing stuff...I know you all won't judge me!

Anyway, another reason I love QVC. a little sampler set, 19.00 with NO shipping charges. A nice  0.5oz Genius, and deluxe samples of Super Smile toothpaste and activator, WEN Cleansing Conditioner, Living Proof PHD 5-in-1, Dr. Gross BB Cream and a little Bliss hand lotion (peppercorn and orange--smells wonderful!) I haven't ever tried WEN, and with my baby fine hair, I don't want to commit to much of a sample in case it doesnt work. I love the Genius, and it is 100 for 2 oz, so just this sample alone is worth the price!

I love Wen, although I use the lavender, because my hair is very thin.  Those are excellent samples.  Tip on the Wen is it does not lather, so you need a lot of product (probably the whole sample for one wash- no joke).  Scrub it into your hair and scalp for at least 2-3 minutes from root to tip.  Rinse with less than hot water at the end of your shower (after letting the product sit in your hair while you clean the rest of your body).  I try to do it in cold water as they suggest, but that is hard.  If you use enough product, scrub it into your hair and thoroughly rinse it out, you will probably love it.  The biggest complaints (other than price and amount of product you have to use) are that it does not clean hair and that hair falls out.  It will clean if you scrub, and your hair should not fall out if you rinse it all out.  There are agents in the product that are not ideal for it to be left inside the hair shafts.

Re: Joyful June Hauls!

thanks for the tips! My hair is short--will I still need a  lot of product?

Even short hair will need a lot of product, because I use the majority of the product at my scalp.  My ends are extremely thin, so I use less as I work my way down.  The good news is unlike other products where you can use too much (looking specifically at traditional conditioners), you cannot use too much Wen.  You can use too little though.  If you do not work enough through your hair, it will not get fully clean.  I personally use 12-15 pumps from the large bottle (even though my hair is half way down my back, it is really thin), which looks like more product than that sample has. Shorter hair would probably use 8-10 pumps.  Wen suggests more, but I find my hair looks no better when I use more than 15 pumps, but it does look worse when I use less than 12.  I would honestly just use the whole sample in one sitting to see what the product can really do for you.

ok, thanks! I will use it on the weekend, just in case...I don't want my hair to look plastered to my head if it doesnt work right for me! :smileyhappy:

Just make sure you have plans to go somewhere.  You do not want to spend one of your best hair days at home!!!  Yes, Wen is that good.  Maybe, you can have a date night with your hubby.

The polish I ordered online came in the mail today!

I went a little crazy with American Apparel nail polish. Wish this photo would do the colors justice.

These nail polishes are so pigmented it's insane.

I haven't heard of this brand...it must be wonderful!! tell us more!

Re: Joyful June Hauls!

They're all lined up like a little beauty army.  Based on the amount you ordered, I am assuming this is great quality polish.  I do not own any.  Maybe, I will pick one up in the future and try it out.  

Re: Joyful June Hauls!

It's a great quality at a reasonable price. Many of the shade are opaque with just one coat. These are all cream shades so I like to apply a top coat for super shiny nails. If you go to a local American Apparel store, they sometimes have select nail polish colors on sale for 50% off. It's a great way to try their polish for cheap. 

 

Poppy and peacock are my favorite summer colors so far. Here is are swatches I found online American_Apparel-Poppy-swatch-Parokeets-1B.jpg

Where did you get the mask? I'm interested to try it! I love the HT Shimmer SPF - I use it all the time, and it smells so good!!

Re: Joyful June Hauls!

(0) Hearts

yupp, at ulta! And I love the HT shimmer, I don't know how I didn't know about it before! My skin has been shimmery all day, and it doesn't rub off on anything.
