Two Tip Tuesday

Because I am in the middle of studying for a policy exam, learning the stuff I need to know for a Math quiz, a huge project at work annnnddd trying to pack for Tgiving all before Jim arrives tomorrow night, today is gonna be short!

Just thought I'd share two of my cheap/useful beauty tips with y'all:
1. Vaseline as eye makeup remover! Love love love love love this tip. Vaseline is so cheap and I have been doing this for about three months and the jar looks barely dented. I just take a little swipe with my finger, apply it on my eyelids, eyelashes and under my eyes and wipe with a tissue. So cheap, so easy, so good for your eyes! The bags under my eyes have never looked smoother ;)

2. Suave's Dry Shampoo. I'm going to be honest with y'all. I'm not much of a brand whore when it comes to beauty products. If it works and its cheap, I'm probably going to try it out. When I was 20 I went to New Jersey/New York with one of my best friends to visit her roommate. Her roommate had this magical concoction called dry shampoo that I had never seen before and it changed my life. Seriously. We went to a local beauty supply store and I happily spent more money than I normally would have for it. And I loved it. However, I use it at least three times a week and it goes by pretty quickly. Enter, Suave. It is about 2 dollah dollah bills at Target and works just as well. Ah-maiz-ing. It lets me sleep in a few mornings a week and actually gives my hair some volume that I need. B-e-a-utiful. Side note: Stuart hates the way it smells. He thinks it smells like gummy candy. However, I have gotten compliments on the smell before. Just a warning!

Happy Tuesday!

I have wanted to try dry shampoo so bad! Mostly because of those extra minutes of sleep I could get...
I tried a different brand and didn't like it, so I'm going to have to get the Suave next!

two dollah bills HAHAHA you seriously make my day errryday! I have never tried EITHER of these- shocking, I know- and really need to! Dry shamp doesn't make your hair super greasy? I know that's not the point but that's the vibe I get! TGIVING IS SO SOON! What's this I hear about being in the mond?

That dry shampoo works good for me also. The BF is not a huge fan of the smell, but I think it's fine.
