-Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque-started using this last night and wow great stuff
-Lypsyl, Blistex and now Rosebud strawberry lip balm(got mine at sephora)
-Philosophy Hope in a Jar

- Scotch Quick Dry Glue-Love this stuff why didn't I get it sooner :)
-Stampin Up Dimensionals-just got some not to long ago, I really like them cause they are not to thick great for cards :)
-Crop-A-Dile-can't wait to make mini books
-Bazzill cardstock-I never really used it til lately and I really like it

I am sure I will have many more come along..but right now these are my favorites :)

Have a great day everyone!


  1. I just got a Crop-A-Dile at Walmart on clearance.. really like it alot. Was able to make holes in some tin for Easter Baskets.

    Hmmmm.. the Mint Julep Masque sounds intreguing.. I have been looking for something to make my pores smaller... You will have to share more on this one.. :)

    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great day.

  2. isn't the crop o dile great? you can use it on so many things...from making new holes on belt to some tin materials.

    enjoy your goodies.

  3. Agnes-yes I love the crop a dile..I never even thought about a hole on a belt..thanks for that idea.My mom wants to get one she picked mine up for me from WM when they were on sale.

    Denine-I have heard great reviews about the Mint Julep Masque..Just the one time I used it my pores shrunk a good bit..They didn't go away the first time, but I say a few more uses they will all be the apricot scrub helps with blackheads..I read a review once that said the Mint Julep masque didn't clear blackheads on their first try(it didn't on mine either but I do know it takes more than one use)..I heard really great reviews about the apricot smells good(too me)..Now the Masque it is kinda tingle cause of the mint. I use to use Mario Badescu Drying Mask..I liked it and it worked ,but I can get Mint Julep for $3.99 at walgreens the Apricot scrub is $ 3.99 at target.

  4. Thank you so much Sheena.
    I have gotten both of the products and really love how my skin is feeling now a days. I have gotten a few comments on how nice of a 'glow' my skin has. I even found the Mint Julep on sale 2/$4.95 can you believe it!

  5. Denine-I'm glad you like them. I love was always hard for me to find good face cleaning products. :):)I will have to look for sales on the Mint Julep. :)


Thanks for all the kind comments and for stopping by my blog. Hugs, Sheena
