Tidbit Tuesday: What I'm Loving This Week

It is that time of the week again. That time where I share what I love at the moment. It is mostly beauty products but I do like to throw in one non-beauty item. Stay tuned...that will be last. :)

So here we go:
This is probably my new favorite nail polish combination. For the base coat, I used Essie's Sugar Daddy and for the top coat, I used OPI Katy Perry's Teenage Dream.

It does not get much better than this. I have never used Lush products. Mostly because I never knew Kansas City had a store and didn't want to pay for shipping to shop online. One Sunday, my friend Ashley (over at The Ramblin' Rooster) and I decided to go to the mall. She had heard that we in fact did have one and low and behold, she was right! I smelled like every product in the store. Some, I was not so fond of to be honest. Others, like this....I CAN'T STOP SMELLING. But I have always been a sucker for rose smelling products. This is an interesting concept too. After I am finished with my shower, I step out of the water and apply this to my legs and arms. I little bit goes a long way. Then, when I step back in the water to rinse of the excess product, it leaves this substance on your skin. It is such a cool feeling. It feels like I have taken a bath for 45 minutes in straight lotion. I just can't say enough about this product. When I get out of the shower, I just pat dry and there is no need for me to apply extra lotion. Mmmm and it smells so yummy! Let me know if you have any questions about this product in the comment section. :)

My next favorite this week is something that I have been using on and off since I was 13 years old. When I was 13, my mum took me to get my first bit of makeup. I think every girl's first makeup experience was with Clinique. They are very basic, classic and clean which is pretty much what a 13 year old should look like when wearing makeup. She also got me my first skincare routine from there. I think every girl has tried this at one point in their life. It is just so cute! She bought be the bar of soap cleanser, the purple toner and the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion. It is recommended for combination skin, which is exactly what I have. I LOVE this stuff. I just recently ran out of my night cream from Clinique that I posted here. I felt that the night cream was too much for my skin. I would wake up to greasy skin in the morning which told me I need a lighter night time lotion. So, back to the basics I went. I like that it has no SPF in it because I don't need that at night. I still use my Cetaphil lotion during the day for that. I like to keep the Clinique lotion in the refridgerator so after I wash and tone my face at night, I put a few drops of this on my face and it gives a nice cooling effect. With this particular product brings me to my next favorite...

When I was at Clinique getting my lotion, the associate informed me that it was free gift time! Woo hoo! She asked me if I wanted the violet or pink color line. I randomly said violet because I feel like I have enough pink stuff. (What girl doesn't?) Anyway, she presented me with this super cute Spring looking, flowery makeup bag and some awesome gifts inside. By far my favorite thing from this gift was the lipstick inside. It is called "SHY" and it is the most amazing every day lipstick. It is a soft, glossy, muted, sheer berry. I love that it has no shimmer and is so polished, yet neutral. It is the perfect shade for any eye color, skin color, hair color...you name it. It is perfect. I got so lucky. If you need anything from Clinique, RUN! Tell them you want the gift with the lipstick named Shy! You will thank me! This is probably my favorite lipstick I own...and that is a lot coming from me because I own about 50 in all shapes, sizes and brands. :) So creamy! Love it!

There is not much to say about this mascara except for "Hallelujah! I think I have found a winner!" It is affordable, just as good as any high-end mascara and it has real bristles...which I love. I can't stand mascaras that have plastic wands. Maybe I am crazy. Anyway... Walgreens, CVS, Target; they all have it! I wear the Black Noir in Waterproof. :)


Okay, and last but not least. My favorite non-beauty item of the moment has got to be....DRUM ROLL, please. I have been eating it non-stop for 3 days. So random.
Yes, Fruit Loops. Back to 2nd grade people. Mmm!

Okay, that is all for this week. Leave me comments and tell me what your favorite things are this week! I love seeing what you love... (and maybe trying them out myself) :)

  1. Taylor, Ashley told me about your blog and I just love it! :-) After reading The Ramblin' Rooster's take on Lush, and now reading yours, I'm going to have to visit their website and place me an order. The products sound fabulous. I had used the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion for years, and just switched to the gel. Awesome!!! One more thing, I love the Clinique "Shy" lipstick, too! It's the perfect color. I look forward to meeting you in person. Ashley thinks you are the best! Take care!
