Hand Cream From Heaven

Ever since I was little I've struggled with super dry hands. They would crack, bleed, and turn beet red every winter. I've tried many different moisturizers and some worked, but I never really found "the lotion." Haha, anyways, I've tried a ton and I was a fan of Curel and Vaseline for a while.

In the fall, my hands were starting to get red and I was like "here we go again!" But, I got some advise:

- Scented hand cream is no good.
- Vaseline actually drys your hands out.

Now, I don't know if those facts are true, but since I've gotten away from those things, my hands have been considerably better. After a recommendation, I purchased Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for dry, sensitive skin. As you probably guessed from the title, it was a miracle worker! Let me just tell you, it totally saved me during this last winter!

Other lotions and creams have moisturized my hands, but never really helped with the redness problem. Cetaphil truly worked and was long-lasting.

If you have been struggling with dry skin and haven't tried Cetaphil yet, I strongly suggest you give it a try!

It can be found at any drugstore, but I've found that Target has it for the cheapest price. It's around $12-15 depending on where you purchase it. Yes, that is expensive, but it lasts for so long. One tub literally lasted me all winter.

Thanks for reading! :)

Cheaper Version of Sperry's

I found a awesome deal this week! I was shopping at kohl's and found a super cute pair of leopard print boat shoes! They were $60 on sale for $40. They looked almost identical to Sperry's! They looked like such good quality, too!


I sadly, did not buy them, but I plan on going back to get them before the sale ends. I'm thinking they will go great with light wash skinny jeans... hahaha!

What do you guys think? Is the cheaper price worth it?

I Cleaned?!

Okay, so I have one drawer to store all my makeup in and it was a disaster. In the mornings, I'm always digging through it in a rush. My makeup was getting all dirty and yucky. So, I realized it was time! Haha, so I began to organize!

I used my old Birchbox boxes to separate my makeup and lined the bottom of the drawer with hot pink tissue paper! I could only fit 3 boxes, so I separated my makeup by face, eye, and lip makeup. I used the rest of the drawer for random beauty items.

It's not crazy organized, but it's for sure better! It's even more fun to put on my makeup now!

Fossil ... My Love!

Ever since I saw my first fossil purse, I've been in love! There's just something about those purses that is just so darn cute! I would say Fossil purses are pretty expensive next to what I'm used to. Fossil purses are around $50-300.

I've been on a hunt for a cute cross body purse for a while. I didn't want to spend a lot, though. So, I shopped at places like Marshals and Tjmaxx.

So, last week I was looking at the purses at Marshals and I saw it! A mini cross body Fossil purse! And guess what?! It was only $34!

Well, I love my purse and I've been taking it everywhere! I thought I would share my new purchase with ya guys!

Zit Zapper!

In my opinion, this is the best zit zapper! It's homemade and only takes two ingredients! It totally dries out and shrinks your pimple!


baking soda & water

Get a bowl or cup and pour in a little bit of baking soda. Next, pour in the water, but make sure only to pour a little. The baking soda will become pasty. If you pour too much water it will be too runny. You want it pasty!

Next, take a spoon or your finger and just cover your pimple with it. Leave it on for about 20 min. or until it starts to crack and fall off. It washes off really easy with water.

Your pimple should be smaller. You can repeat the whole process again for even better results!

Hope this helps!

I want some Crocs!

We all remember Crocs from a few years ago. They were pretty popular and I will admit that I had a pair. I had a pair in the color cotton candy. They were the kind of shoes that were so ugly they were cute!

I can't believe I ever found them cute! It's crazy how fast fashion changes!

I will also admit that I still do wear them... when I'm helping my dad cut the grass... haha (shhhh don't tell anyone!).

So, I was looking online a few weeks ago and saw really cute jelly flats! I looked a little closer and saw they were made by Crocs! Apparently, Crocs are now making different styles of shoes (meaning their shoes are cute & comfortable!). I just discovered them and really want a pair!

**ALSO, I just made a new twitter! So, please follow me! I promise to follow back! @looneybutt

Here are a few pictures of their shoes:
