five {favorite things} + a GIVEAWAY

For five on Friday, I wanted to share with you five of my absolute favorite things.  Seriously, the following five things are, like, the best things ever.  I cannot live without them.



1. GLAMGLOW Super Mud Clearing Mask

Have you heard of this stuff?  I read about it in several beauty magazines and on beauty blogs.  Supposedly, it will literally pull the dirt and grime out of your pores.  I was really skeptical, especially where it is $69.99 for a jar.  However, one month I was particularly curious and I found a sweet deal on it, so I bought a jar. 

First off, the inside of the box says "Hello Sexy," and that's enough to make anyone feel good.  The packaging is beautiful and the mask does not disappoint.  I washed my face and put the mask all over.  After about 20 minutes of letting it dry, I took a look in the mirror.  I could actually see where it was pulling out my blackheads and zits.  Seriously, it was unbelievable.  I'll spare you the pictures of my face, however, I will for sure show you the pictures they provide explaining how the mask does it's magic. 


2. Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

I use this stuff every single day.  It is my absolute favorite.  I have acne (yeah, overweight and acne in my twenties, do you feel better about yourself now?) therefore, moisturizer kind of becomes a curse word.  Putting more oil on my face, no thank you.  However, I've noticed some early wrinkles forming and I needed to figure out a way to moisturize my skin without clogging my pores.  This moisturizer is definitely the answer.  It softens, moisturizes and clears up blemishes.  For realz, it is the shiz.

3. Seriously, I'm Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres

This book will brighten your day no matter what.  I have read it at least a dozen times.  Every time I have a bad day, I open it up and instantly I have a much better outlook on life.  Ellen is hilarious (if you can't tell by my million posts about her, I'm kind of obsessed) and she can make any bad day better.  This book is the bees knees.  Enjoy the following quote from Ellen's newest book:

“Laugh. Laugh as much as you can. Laugh until you cry. Cry until you laugh. Keep doing it even if people are passing you on the street saying, "I can't tell if that person is laughing or crying, but either way they seem crazy, let's walk faster." Emote. It's okay. It shows you are thinking and feeling.” -Ellen DeGeneres, Seriously I'm Kidding

4. Target

Adorable products, amazing prices, 'nuff said.

5. Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara



This stuff is amazing.  The commercials don't even do it justice.  I love the look of having big, full lashes.  Most mascaras clump up and make a gunky mess of my lashes.  However, this stuff defines each lash making your eyes look big, and beautiful!

So, if do these things sound amazing to you?  Well, it's your lucky day.  I wanted to celebrate all of you new readers, so how does a giveaway sound?!  Well, if you want to enter to win ALL OF THESE AMAZING PRIZES (over $100 dollar value) go ahead and enter below.  The giveaway will be open until midnight on Friday, August 16, 2013.  A winner will be announced the following Saturday, August 17, 2013.

  9. Clump Crusher is soooo amazing! I was a little skeptical at first because Covergirl has never given me much luck on mascaras, but they got it right with that formula.
