E.l.f Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets ( $1.00)
I used to be really into Sephora Films but I like these much better! They are insanely cheap, are much easier than films to get out of the package, and they seem to be more absorbent. I don’t notice that they minimize my pores, as promised, but I def. think they work great for oil and have been handy as hell this past month.

Dior Poudre Shimmer in 001 Rose Diamond (approx. $52.00)
This lovely little shimmery gradient brick in a shades ranging from pearl white to dusty rose was released in Spring 2008, and it took me around three years to finally decide to purchase it. Now, I wish I had long ago!!! These colors look mixed together or used separately as blushes, and the pearl white on the end is the absolute best cupids bow highlighter I have ever used.

Lip Smacker Biggie in Black Cherry ($4.00)
You know when you drink a little too much and end up at a drugstore? Yeah. I saw this and gasped out loud- I used to wear this stuff pretty much all through elementary school and junior high. It smells great, absorbs well, the tube lasts forever and the tiny bit of color is nice. The best thing about this lip balm though, is it’s so big in your pocket that you’ll never accidently put it through the wash.

Henri Bendel BNO. 7 Paddlock Drop Earrings ($150.00)
On vacation in June, I ended up doing some shopping with my sister at the Mall of America. I had never been into a Henri Bendel store, and I gotta say I am in love with that place. The jewerly and bags are very nice quality and so paying a bit more than usual is really, really worth it. I have been wearing these earrings all month and have gotten so many compliments on them.

Soap & Glory The Righteous Body Butter ($22.00)
It’s a pretty good sign that a product does the job when you go to a store to buy it and every single time you try, you find it’s been sold out. Finally got my hands on some of this stuff online and it really is great. Good moisturizing, quick absorbing and a clean, day lily kind of scent going on…great price too. Only downfall is I go through the stuff FAST.
