1. Younique 3D Fiberlash Mascara
Have you ever actually tried to get a good picture of your eyelashes? It's a lot harder that it seems!! Well, I've never really focused my attention on my lashes. They are really sparse and I usually just focus on a little wing in my eyeliner and a good red lip. My eyes are always covered by glasses so It just wasn't something I put much thought into. Now, I totally love my lashes. I give them a little curl, put on my regular cover girl mascara then do the gel, fibers, and gel again. You can't really tell from the pic but in person, it looks like I'm wearing falsies. I'm totally hooked. Now I'm willing to shell out $29 when this set runs out. Oh, and I've been wearing it almost everyday since memorial day weekend and I'm no where near the bottom of the tubes. I highly recommend this stuff.
2. Tiny Tasty Treats from Kitchen Vixen
Aren't these just the cutest??? I found Kitchen Vixen at a local street fair selling the most amazing cookies and other treats. As I had already had my fill of decadent street fair food, I almost walked right by the most adorable little ear rings and necklaces I've ever seen. First I spotted the little cupcake necklace. You all know I love anything cupcake related (Hell, my dog's name is Cupcake). Then I found the little cups of Hot Coco and the Tiny Cake Pieces. I absolutely had to scoop them all up and take them home with me. Unfortunately, they didn't have the little red Kitchen Aide at the fair and I only discovered that on their website. It was just to cute not to share it with you. You can be that I will be looking for it the next time I stumble across them in person. For now, my budget is too tight to order it online.
3. Floral Purse from The Bag Ladies of Fairbanks.
Something about summer time makes me gaga over floral prints. That, coupled with a pretty serious purse addiction and need for retail therapy and there was no way that I couldn't buy this wonderful bag. It's an added bonus that this purse and the many others made by The Bag Ladies of Fairbanks were made right here in my home town by some wonderful ladies.
If anyone one wants to buy me the polka dot's and poppies one, I sure would appreciate it. Unfortunately, I've already gone way over my budget as it is. Damn, I can't wait till I can be working again!!!
4. Vintage (80's does 50's) shirt dress.
Not only have I been swooning over floral's these days, but I have also been drawn to pink lately. This is an unusual one for me. I have always been more of a red girl and always felt that pink was just too dainty for me. I guess things are always changing and so am I. Not only does this lovely dress have pink in it but I don't think I've worn a white dress since I was a VERY little girl. I will have to check with my mother on that one as I don't remember ever wearing one. How could I pass up this adorable frock? At 50% off of $12.99 I just couldn't, even if I was already in the red for the month......oops!
5. Brooches made by yours truly
It all started with this little lady, a cute little polka dot dress made from a scrap of fabric left over from a skirt I made. A few people had shown some interest in it so I decided to make a few more and try to sell them. Here are some of the others I've made....
I've been asking $10 each with shipping included (U.S. only) and I take PayPal. If you'd like to help a girl out head on over to My Instagram and leave me a comment. Or leave me a comment here. After last months over spending and an unexpected trip to Reno next month, every penny is a big help. I am not in a position to work extra hours or pick up shifts in order to make extra money as I no longer have a job and am unable to work at the moment. So, this is what I can do. I'm also thinking about setting up an etsy shop. What do you guys think?? I've got to find some way to bring in extra moneys.
