This time of year....I am CRAZY for a Star*bucks Pumpkin Spice Latte
However, I cannot justify spending $4.50 (appx) for a grande.....
SO....I have perfected my own!
I have been hunting around trying to find the right stuff. Star*bucks does not sell their pumpkin syrup, I have tried another syrup called Pumpkin Spice...and it just wasn't right
DaVinci's Pumpkin Pie Sauce
YES...it has to be "sauce"...more like the consistency of Hershey's syrup!
I add some of this to the bottom of my latte mug, make my latte (with non-fat milk) on my espresso machine...and voila...my very own...
Pumpkin Spice Latte
Do you have a favorite coffee drink this time of year??
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish in
Commander in Chic!!
I first read about this polish in InStyle magazine, and thought I would give it a try!
Amazing...this color, first of all, is so fabulous, a taupey grey neutral, that looks so great on short nails for fall...and the compliments flow! They have lots of great colors from palest pinks to a black/brown that resembles a cool OPI color!
The best part...this polish LASTS and it dries very quickly!! I rarely paint my fingernails anymore. With all the cleaning and dishes and bathing, polish never seems to last more than a day before it chips! This polish LASTED...seriously it stayed on for 5 days without chipping while still doing all my usual chores. It is about $7 a bottle and I bought mine at Walgreens.
You MUST try!
L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara
So, I saw an ad for this one too, and was in the market for a new mascara.
You apply this using the white end first (a primer if you will) and then the red end.
Yes, it does make your lashes look longer, but for me the cool factor was that it doesn't smudge or run. I wear contacts, so I usually go for a waterproof mascara, so there is no flaking etc...but I hate trying to get waterproof OFF...and with some, all the black that ends up on my white towels!
This mascara literally comes off in "tubes". Once you rinse your face with water, and wet your lashes the mascara comes off each individual lash...very cool...and no more black eyes!!
So...there you have two of my new favorite products!
