we're into it

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.

ohh the little boy on the cupcake pop mold is really cute - always something new on your blog - love it

Gracie said...

Pinterest! I HEART that site! I love seeing your post too!

Michelle said...

Not QUITE the same vein as I think you mean - but I am insanely into the Wainscoting I just redid my master bath in - that and the subway tiles. I am IN LOVE! I am also hugely into Party Planning blogs (the Brynncess's Sweet 16 is in Nov). Oh, and super large marshmallows - and Amigurumi (I just crocheted the sweetest baby zoo for a shower gift)

Those cupcake pops are VERY cute!!

PatQ said...

I've tried the Wen and it made my hair oily. I know several people who love it. I have very thick hair so maybe that had something to do with it, but it's not for me.

Holy SPRINKLES!

Cassandra said...

I tried the WEN and it made my hair very oily. I called to cancel & they recommended I use the formula for fine hair, but by that point I was turned off. It did make my hair feel like silk, and super shiny, but then there was the fact that you needed to use a TON of it for each washing, separating your hair into 5 sections and using 5-6 pumps per section!! Way too much hassle. I still have a whole order of it unopened that you can have. Oh, I entered Pioneer Woman's macaroon contest, & if I win I'm taking you as my guest! So keep July 23rd to 25th open for a trip to Oklahoma! (in my dreams!)

Right now I'm into salad in a jar, Mrs. Meyers products in Lemon Verbena, Handi-wipes instead of paper towels, Paprika app for my iPod, and everything Pinterest!

That perfume sounds really nice, I have been looking for some to try but get stuck in a rut. I think I'll check that out.
I would suggest calling around a little bit for the nail polish. I myself am OBSESSED with the Katy Perry line and had to have Last Friday night and the black shatter. I found mine at a really nice day spa after trying every.single.other nail place in the area. I would have never pegged this place for that kind of polish and that's probably why they had it. Good luck.

I'm another one into Pinterest and organizing (lame but necessary).

I'm loving this list!

Shannon said...

Thanks Saucy! I really want to try that perfume, do you have to order through Sephora or can you buy it locally?

Saucy said...

Shannon, the perfume is only available at Sephora right now... so you can't buy it locally unless you have a Sephora in your city, and we're getting one here in October!

Lisa Loo said...

tried the Wen system. LOVE IT! It works beautifully for my 18 year old daughter who has very thick, naturally curly/wavy hair, and on mine which is a short pixie cut. You have to rinse VERY well. Niether of us uses an additional pump in our hair as a leave in conditioner after washing. My hair stays cleaner longer, and my daughter's highlights (natural) really come out in her brunette hair.

Kate said...

Love reading your blog. The stackable rings are so fun. Where are they sold in Washington state? Or the US for that matter. The website wouldn't show retailers outside of Europe.

Maija said...

Off I go shopping again!!

Kate said...

Oh my word...deep dark secret...I LOVE infomercials. And my top 2 wants right now are the Wen hair care and Cindy Crawfords skin line. If I take the plunge I will report back. Weird amazing discovery...I love my food steamer. It has a timer and has changed my thoughts on certain long cook foods I never had time for before. And I still use my Magic Bullet almost every day.

SOINSPIRED said...

I can't wait to see your cupcake pops! When will the kitchen be finished?

Thyri said...

Saucy- do you know any online stores that sell red and black sprinkles? I can't find any- and my Miss (14 in a couple of weeks) is having a red and black themed birthday party. I thought if anyone knew where to find them online it would be you!

Thanks! Thyri in Australia

I've always loved Bakerella's wall of sprinkles too!! Hubs doesn't think jars of sprinkles lining my walls is such an awesome idea though. I did make a few jars for my daughter's play kitchen!
Glad you're back to blogging! I have to catch up! Do you have a facebook you post your posts to?

Saucy said...

CakeEater,

Add me on Facebook (Sasha Libby) and I usually put a link up to my most recent posts in the feed :)

Also... Bakerella has a wall of sprinkles?? MUST GOOGLE IT NOW! xoxo

CakeEater said...

Its just a spice rack, but she was inspired by a wall of sand in jars from around the world. Your picture of sprinkles is from her site - I thought that's the "wall" you were referencing. :D Thanks for the fb info!
