Pink and Red

What shall I blog about today, I asked myself. 
{brain cells desperately trying to rub together}
 I thought, maybe I'll just list all the things I really like and use everyday?
Why the heck would anyone care about that, myself asked me. 


So I decided to list all the things I like that are pink and red 
and pretend like it's a well-thought out post relating to valentines's day in some way. 
{I know. Kind of lame-o. I'm just not feeling creative today}

Well after that enticing intro you're hooked like a fish, aren't you.
Can't look away. 

Here you go anyway. Some things I love- In Pink & Red.

Diet Coke. 

This is me:
That is all I need to say about that.

Neutrogena pink grapefruit scrub
Smells delicious. Exfoliates without being too rough. Love it.

Method pink grapefruit all-purpose spray
 Nothing's worse than a kitchen that smells all chemical-y, 
like the inside of a janitor's closet. 
This smells great and uses natural citrus oils to cleanse and sanitize. 
I always get it at Target.

Burt's Bees pomegranate oil lip balm.
Super smooth, and soft without being sticky.
Pretty, sheer wash of color.
No weird, unidentifiable ingredients. 
I have one of these in my purse and another in the girl's diaper bag. Definitely my favorite lip product.

Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
Every time a new mascara comes out I get sucked into the marketing and I buy it. 
But I always come back to this classic.  

Got this for Christmas from my sweet mother-in-law.
I am a compulsive ruffle purchaser. If it has ruffles...I want it. 

It's almost bathing suit season here in Charleston. 
I'm overwhelmed with excitement at the idea of showing my 
birthed-two-babies loose bits in a few pieces of material.
If I can stop reading blogs and maybe work out more some, I think these might be contenders.

and this...

and this...

O-Glow blush
A bit pricey, but I've had the same tube foreeever. 
A little goes a long way. 
I have really dry skin in the winter,
 and putting blush on dry skin can look like a hot mess sometimes.
 But this is a gel, so it always looks natural. 

And finally,
  {and this is going to horrify some of you that are all
 "I like to bake, and make everything from scratch, and me and martha are on a first name basis" and such}
But these...are my favorite.
You know the pillsbury slice-and-bake cookies that they have for every holiday?
Like snowmen in the winter, and four leaf clovers for St. patrick's day, and of course:

hearts for Valentine's Day...

I love them. LOVE THEM. 
Most of the time I can't even wait for them to be done cooking 
and I take them out when they're still really soft. 
Like...really, really soft. 
{does that sound better than me saying I eat them raw sometimes??}
{still be my friend?}



  1. Great post! I am obsessed with that Maybelline mascara! I am loving that first JCREW swimsuit! Going to browse there now!

  2. Ditto on the mascara! I always get sucked into buying the new ones...but they never work as well as Maybelline!

    I'm going to have to try the Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm. Looks great!
