Beauty Review: Born Pretty Store Magic Lip Mask Lip Tattoo Tint

Howdy all.  Sitting here in gymnastics, watching my littlest little be awesome and strong.  I watch her in equal parts amazement and horror as she climbs the rope to the ceiling to hit the flag.  In my entire life I've never been strong enough to do that.  Anywho...I figured what better time to type up a post to share than now.  I had some credits earned up over at Born Pretty and since I always review nail products I thought it would be fun to try out some makeup items!  I've tried 2 out of 3 lip products so far and like them both.  This post is about the new peel off lip stain that hit the scene a short while back.  I can't be bothered with reapplying lipstick every 30 minutes so I do like to test different lippies out for wear time.  You can purchase this Magic Lip Mask Lip Tattoo Tint from BaLaLa HERE for $3.61 and don't forget you can save 10% using my code JTOW10.  There are 5 shades available.  Now let's check it out.

Beauty Review: Rimmel London Lip Products and Sally Hansen Color Therapy

Morning lovelies.  This fine day I have some fine beauty products to share with you!  A couple from Sally Hansen, a couple from Rimmel London.  These are great makeup brands that you can pick up at your local drugstore (making life SO easy) for an affordable price.  What I've noticed is that lots of the drugstore brands are venturing out into new ingredients and jumping on trends (sometimes not so quickly).  The products I have for you today do both of those and do the well in my opinion.  I'll go in to detail for each product once we delve in...so why don't we go ahead and do that!

Athletic Wear; Bondi Band Mandala Doodleband

Evening all.  I've spend a fabulous day doing everything but sitting home and cleaning the house!  Had a fantastic lunch chatting with girlfriends and my hubby even popped in for a surprise!  Now I'm waiting until dinner, we are going to a delicious steak house and I can't wait to get dressed up for date night.  But I figures since I already shared non-polish things I'd keep that trend going and share another post from Runner Jen. Yeah, if you haven' figured it out, that's my alter ego.  I run.  A lot.  So it only makes sense that I'd have some related items to talk about.  Unless you live under a rock you'll have noticed how popular adult color is right now.  It's a stress reliever and creative outlet.  Plus it's fun.  I haven't jumped on that bandwagon, don't really have free time to color, but I figured since I am a Bondi Band Ambassador and this is a newer product I'd try it out.  You can get Bondi Band Doodle Bands on their website or Amazon.  They are $12.99 on both sites and come with a 4-pack of markers.  And you can save 10% using my code RunJenRun on the Bondi Band website.  Let's jumping and check out the headband!

Alter Ego Body Care Products: Kinkade's Golden Gate

Evening dolls!  I've got a post for you tonight that is a real beauty!  It's inspired by a painting of the Golden Gate Bridge by Thomas Kinkade.  I have really grown to appreciate San Francisco (I'm local to the area and only about a 45 minute drive away) so I find this polish to be quite special and unique.  The Golden Gate Bridge is a beautiful bridge and I enjoy driving across it and taking in the sights.  Cynthia created this polish for the Polish Pickup group on Facebook.  You can join the group HERE to purchase the polish.  I'm not really sure all the specifics about this group.  What I do understand is that this is NOT a box, so you only buy what you really love!  Great concept.  Anyways, you can pick this beautiful polish up towards the end of the month!  Let' check out pictures!

Fit Snack February Box

Hey guys, I have a new kind of post for you today.  It's pretty cool because I am definitely one that always looking for healthy snacks that take the edge off in between meals.  I also like these types of on-the-go snacks after a hard run or soccer game (and sometimes even during an extra long run).  So since I am going to review products to help performance I thought I'd use a new watermark.  Runner Jen will be my watermark for anything related to running, health, food, athletic wear.  If you see the Runner Jen watermark rest assured, it's still just me! But I figured it would also help differentiate the types of posts I'll be sharing.  Ok so Fit Snack is a Fitness Nutrition Subscription box.  You are guaranteed $32 worth of value per box and proceeds help the Boys and Girls Club.  Each month you will get a box full of different products!  You also get a card with a workout plan.  There are 5 different plans to work with your snacking needs.  You can save $3 using my link HERE.  So let's jump in and check out this awesome box!

Mardi Gras Bead Nail Art featuring Girly Bits Cosmetics COTM Duos

Good morning and laissez les bon temps router!  It's Fat Tuesday people!  Throw some beads, grab a hurricane and munch on some King Cake.  Well, that's my plan for today.  I'll be making a huge meal of jambalaya, cornbread and a king cake to enjoy tonight.  I also did this "mardi gras bead" nail art to celebrate the occasion.  I used the February and March COTM Duos from Girly Bits and think these shades all worked perfectly together.  Not too please with my "beads" but I think you get the gist.  Anywho...the February COTM Duo will be available through today, last possible chance to snag it!  The March COTM Duo will be available starting tomorrow!  You can read more about both of these duos HERE and HERE!
