Foodwise, the Thanksgiving holiday is a big bust for me.
I don’t like turkey (too birdy), ham (too piggy), stuffing (too bready), cranberry sauce (too slimy) or any kind of pie (again, too slimy). Honestly, I’d rather have fish sticks (yummy!).
But that doesn’t mean I’m not filled with gratitude this holiday. I’m totally thankful for my beauty blogging buddies who have me looking better in my forties than I ever did in my twenties.
Sooooo, a huge Thanksgiving burst of appreciation to:
Beautylogic – If you followed her advice and grabbed NYC’s Sun 2 Sun Bronzing Powder, you had the most gorgeous sun kissed cheeks this summer for only $5. It’s a bargain bronzer that really gives a department store look!
Anti-Hair Slave and Nessasary Makeup – I got turned on to Humectress Luxe Ultimate Moisturizing Leave-In Spray by these blogs. And I love the stuff. I opt to spray a bit on my hair before I wrap it for the night. It keeps my super dry mane feeling smooth, silky and moisturized.
Make-up By RenRen – I was a RenRen beauty stalker long before I started my own blog. Her brilliant video tutorials are like having a make-up artist on stand-by 24/7. She makes tricky techniques look so easy, doesn’t she?
Karen of a Certain Age – Having to don unfashionable reading glasses made me feel oh-so-old, until this blog introduced me to the oh-so-adorable Eyebobs line of reading glasses. I opted for the Smitten Kitten cat-eye glasses in tortoise. They make reading after-40 both chic and easy!
Clumps of Mascara and The Home Spa Goddess – I was never much of an eyeshadow girl, but their recommendation of Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion ($16 at Sephora) has totally ramped up my eye game. This stuff works! Okay, I know I’ve read about the wonders of this product on even more blogs, however these two stand out in my mind because their posts included videos.
J.CrewAholics and Brown Girl Gumbo - Your blogs make me spend, spend, spend. I’ve bought so much because of ya’ll, I can’t even begin to list the items. So why am I thankful? Because your great clothing picks are going to make me the most fashionable woman in the poor house!
Product Junkie Diva – I always walked right past the Aveda store at the mall, because I didn’t think their products would work on my hair. Wrong! After reading reviews of their Damage Remedy line on this blog, I gave it a try. The results were amazing. Pricey, but worth every dime.
Coup de Coeur – For getting me back into my Bobbi Brown pot rouges. I’d forgotten how much pretty was packed into those little pots until I saw photos of your gorgeous Bobbi makeover. Now I'm using them all the time.
Calming Corners – This blog is my daily reminder to nurture both my body and spirit. Always good tips for feeling great - inside and out.
Keep in mind, I only included a tiny sampling of the wonderful tips I’ve gotten from so many awesome beauty bloggers. If your blog wasn’t mentioned, it’s not because I’m not thankful. But this was post was turning into a book and I had to wrap it up to get ready for Friday - the biggest shopping day of the year!
