I still have lots to do before Christmas, but at least I can check off painting my nails with a festive holiday polish. I've gone with a deep berry red shade that's perfect for winter.

This is my Face Of The Day from Friday, but I forgot to post it. Oops.
I've been trying several new products recently, so to keep things balanced out, I decided to I pulled out a few old favorites that I already know and love. I decided to go with eye shadow shades that would make my eyes look more green- just in case the new makeup didn't workout. Keep reading to see what products I used today.

'Tis the season to score some holiday deals for everyone on your list and... stock up on essentials for yourself. That's okay right?
I did a little shopping at Victoria's Secret this week. I wanted to redeem my Secret Rewards Cards before they expired and pick up a few "necessities" for myself.
For those of you not familiar, Secret Rewards Cards were earned before December 5th with purchases of $10 or more. Each card is worth either $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, or $500. Cards can be used in stores or online.
If you haven't used your Secret Rewards Cards yet, get on it!
They expire on Friday, December 20, 2013.

EOS Lip Balms are probably one of the most talked about balms. With all the hype, I decided to (finally) give it a try for myself. I'm glad I finally broke down and bought one of the balms; EOS Sweet Mint Lip Balm has become a favorite of mine.

I wasn't going to purchase any polishes from OPI's Mariah Carey Holiday 2013 Collection, but... I caved. Yesterday, I saw My Favorite Ornament in person and that did it; I needed it. I couldn't wait to paint my nails and share it with you. It's a glitter polish that's great for the holidays or would be perfect for a sparkly accent nail.

I was out running errands and doing a little Christmas shopping today. Before I faced the world, I made up my face; opting for a simple makeup look. I wouldn't consider this minimal makeup since I used 7 products, but I guess it's sort of a 'no makeup' makeup look.

It's CVS clearnace time again! Select beauty products are 50% or 75% off and sometimes marked with pink or green stickers. I showed restraint, but still took advantage of some of the great deals.
My local CVS didn't have any of the clearance items marked (with clearance stickers) so I shopped using Nouveau Cheap's CVS Clearance List. G (from Nouveau Cheap) adds known clearance items to her master list. If in doubt, you can price check any item in the store by scanning it at the red box (the one that prints coupons).
Alright, now onto the haul!

While it's not technically winter, it sure feels like it! Winter dryness is pretty common and I struggle with extremely dry, cracked hands. I blame it on a combination of cold weather and excessive hand washing... oh, and lots of antibacterial gel. If you suffer from dry hands or feet, regardless of the season, you'll wanna hear about this treatment from Bath & Body works.
