October Favorites

October is coming to and end and we are sad about that. This month like the last few have flown by.  I can't believe its almost the END of the year. 

Laura Mercier Camouflage  Is My Favorite Concealor! It can be color-customized to address your tone and imperfections. I love because not all areas that need concealor are the same color. Also my skin shade changes with the seasons. 

Too Faced Melted Lipstick  My Favorite color is peony. I am Loving the Matte look of lipstick right now! What I also love is how long this lasts! Pretty much a lip stain. 

Tweezerman Pink Perfection Slant Tweezer I am in Love with these Tweezers and not just because they are PINK! I have gone thru so many $5 pairs of Tweezers none of which worked they way I needed them too. So i finally bit the bullet and got these and have been using for years!

Maybelline Baby lips This reminds me of the days of bonnie bell lip balm. I feel like a kid again! Super cute and Fun! Smells great, the difference is it actually works! Gives Moisture plus a tint of color! 

Scentsy Autumn Sunset Melting cubes. This time of year I love to have my house Smelling Yummy! 

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara-  I recently got a sample of this in my Ipsy bag, and OH MY WORD people its the BEST mascara I have ever used. it makes my lashes thick and long and give lots of volume in just ONE coat. 

Kate Spade Agenda-  I had been wanting this planner for a long time now, and lucky me Cami gave it to me for my birthday, and I love the simplicity of it. Its perfect for me.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer- This is are really good drug store concealer. I use it to cover the dark circles under my eyes and to high light the high points of my face. 

Maybelline MATTE Lipstick in Touch of Spice- Going along with the whole 90's trend this lipstick is PERFECT. While its a matte lipstick is not drying on the lips. Its the perfect brownish nude color. LOVE IT.

Wild Child BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow Pallet- I recently heard of this make up brand from one of my favorite girls on Youtube. She raved about how great these pallets were. So I wanted to check them out. I got mine for $10 they were having a sale. THIS IS WELL WORTH the $10 I would have paid full price it is so good. The color pay off is incrediable and they are creamy and blend so good.

Let us know what your some of the things you have been loving this month!

Thankful Hearts

If you don't follow us on Instagram then you wouldn't know we hold monthly swaps, and it so fun. Each month we have a different things we swap with different people. We post a picture asking for people who would be interested and then the first 20 or so people we take. Check us out for next month. We have a fun idea planned.

Anyway.... If you want to participate in the up coming months then go follow us on Instagram. @simply_girly_blog

This month we are doing something a little different. We are swapping Thank you Cards and Journals. We are going to be handing out those cards to random people thanking them for what they do for us. It could be the cashier at the grocery store, or the lady at the post office, the lady at the post office, or a family member. Just anyone that you can show gratitude towards. We will be starting November 1.

In this world we live in being thanked or even being acknowledged goes unnoticed far to often. So we want to sprinkle the world in just a little way with kindness and gratitude. We want to extend this challenge to everyone. Even if your not participating in our swap. We hope you will join and share you experiences with us. This could be an awesome opportunity to have the whole family be involved. You could pair your notes with a treat or an act of service. There isn't a better way to start the Holiday Season off.

October Ipsy

Another REALLY good month for Ipsy! We are going on 3 months in a row. I am impressed!

What was in my bag:

Skone Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner- ($15) This stuff is REALLY good!! I usually wear the Tattoo Eyeliner from Kat Von D its my most favorite ever. So comparing it to that this is really good.

Indie Lee Brightening  Cleanser- (Fullsize $32) This was the only thing that I wasn't super excited about, but I do look forward to trying it out. I always hesitate to try new things on my face, but I will give this a try.

Ayres Body Butter- (Fullsize $28) This smells a little herbal, but I used it on my hands before I went to bed and it was pretty good.

Nicole by OPI Nail Polish-($6) Gold Nail Polish need I say more. Its perfect and its OPI so its good stuff. 

Noyah Lip Stick- (Fullsize $18) This is lipstick shade is perfect for the "90's" lip that is trending right now. I love it. This is an all natural company!

Everything was a good sized sample or a full sized product.  The bag this month is also really good quality and so cute! Which is always awesome. Total for everything if you were to go out and buy them is $99. WOW so for $10 its not to bad. The awesome eyeliner alone pays for the whole bag. 

If you do not know what Ipsy is its a monthly subscription service for $10. They send you 4-5 deluxe samples based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If your interested you can sign up here.
