It's that season again... time for Saucy and Loopy to share some of their favourite things with you. Sorry we're not like Oprah, we can't give you one of everything. But, we can tell you how much we're liking some stuff lately and you might want to try it for yourself.
Saucy boldly ordered Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty skincare regime as seen on TV. It was the money-back guarantee that lured her in rather than the claims made on the infomercial but it was the results that will keep her using Cindy's skincare. As a ProActive user for many, many years, Saucy was starting to suffer with dry skin as her adult acne settled and was even faced with the occasional ghastly deep pimple... the kind that makes you want to hide under a rock for five days. Since trying the Meaningful Beauty system her skin is softer and clearer. There aren't any deep monster problems lurking and even makeup is going on smoother and looking fresher longer.
Saucy's only complaint? The introductory kit didn't come with toner. Isn't toner one of the important pieces of any skincare program? It even says to use the toner after the cleanser. What gives, Cindy?
The next celebrity product is Jennifer Aniston's new signature scent. If you ever wondered what Jen smelled like (and really, who hasn't) its a fruity/floral blend of rosewater and violet with citrus and beachy "top notes," whatever a "top note" is. At any rate, the bottle is a gorgeous design and it's a very nice scent for the summer but Saucy will likely shelve it by autumn. It really does smell like a beach, if a beach had a smell and looked fabulous all year long in every single photograph.
Loopy is keeping her manicure looking fresh and rad with OPI's crackle nail polishes. She's crackling the black over her selection of colours but she's got her eye on the Katy Perry collection, it seems to be sold out everywhere. If Saucy can get her hands on a bottle of Last Friday Night, you know what Loopy will be wearing to the Katy Perry concert in three weeks.
Oh... and the other thing we're into... Katy's latest video for the song Last Friday Night. If you're a child of the 80's or 90's check it out for a good giggle and see how many celebs from the past you can pick from the crowd. Take things a step further and friend Kathy Beth Terry on Facebook or her cute crush Steve Johnson.
Saucy's been snacking on Chocolate Cheerios. They have just a touch of cocoa and not too much sugar so it doesn't seem like a very disastrous indulgence. Sometimes a girls just wants something a little chocolately without eating a whole cupcake, dig?
Of course everyone is watching Extreme Couponing on TLC and Saucy remembers fondly the days when her local grocery stores doubled coupons but those days are long gone. She still registered for websaver.ca to have coupons mailed directly to her door... if there wasn't a postal strike going on.
Bulk Barn opened two locations locally and their selections of baking sprinkles are second to none! Saucy can hardly wait to install the new kitchen cabinets and build her massive wall of sprinkles...
To use all of those assorted sprinkles, Saucy plans to make as many cupcakes and cupcake pops as she can, using her new My Little Cupcake pop mold. She hasn't tried it yet, but it looks promising and she absolutely will blog the entire process when she gives it a go.
Lastly, Saucy picked up a couple of rings to start Loopy on a collection from the Stack Ring Co. They're cute, affordable and real 925 silver. Mix and matchable, you can personalize your collection with birthstones, plain bands or decorative bands interchanged with the different theme rings. It didn't hurt that they are on for less than half price right now at London Drugs - just nine dollars each. The Fan picked up a few also... time to stock up on stacks!
And just so you know, we just really like this stuff. Nobody's paying us to tell you and we didn't get one bit of it for free. If you try anything, let us know what you think.
We're seriously considering the Wen haircare system... has anyone given that a shot? What are you into lately, Dear Reader? Spill it. Don't hold back. We want to try it, too.
