Do Tell Tuesday #34

Hey guys! I'm still taking some vacation time, so I hope the link up is working right :) If there are any issues, be sure to click over to one of the other blogs so you can link up there. They'd love the chance to feature you!


As You Wish Pitcher

Last month I shared this DIY wedding gift over on The Girl Creative. It's the perfect gift for any fan of The Princess Bride movie. "As you wish" is one of the catch phrases of the movie, because that's how Westley always tells Buttercup that he loves her.

If you know anyone getting married soon they're sure to like this sweet wedding gift that can be used as a flower vase or kitchen organizer.

TreeTop Fruit Fulls and a Blogger Playdate

Blogging for me has been a great way for me to connect with creative people all over the country and even the world. What's extra fun is finding other bloggers right in my backyard! Just a few days ago I got to attend a blogger event hosted by Heather from Heather Likes Food and sponsored by Mom it Forward and Tree Top.

Drugstore Makeup Faves from Simply Girly

Hey everyone--I can't believe I've been blogging for over 3 years now when sometimes I still feel like I have no idea what I'm doing :) But that's why I get so excited to find new blogs that have just started. I remember what it was like! Today I'm introducing you to Simply Girly, a pair of friends--Cami and Krystal--who love fashion, beauty and crafts. 

I first found them when I saw their DIY striped tray. Isn't it gorgeous? 

Anyway, I'll let them take it away here...

We are so excited to be guest posting today. We are fairly new to the blogging community, and we are anxious to see where things go. We are two friends that love anything girly. We love crafts, make up, fashion, home decor, and the list goes on. So on our blog you will find post related to anything girly. We hope you will hop on over and check out our blog, but today we are sharing our top 10 make-up products from the drugstore under $10.

While we really love our high end make up we are not partial to drugstore products. There are some AMAZING drug store products. Here are a some of all time favorite.

L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Pigments- This product was in a recent monthly favorites. Its really good stuff. Very highly pigmented and stays on well and doesn't crease. Its best applied with your finger tips.

CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara- I have Tried Several drug Store mascara's and this was a clear winner. I dont have much Lash and these help to add Volume. My Fav one is their Water Proof. I swim a lot here in LV and it doesn't come off.

Mayballine Color Tattoo- Another really good eyeshadow. It is a cream eyeshadow so if you don't like those you probably won't like this. The pigment is good and they last ALL DAY with no creasing. Again best applied with your finger tips.

Rimmel Eye Stay Matte Powder- This is a very good setting powder. It locks foundation in good and helps with shine. Best drug store one we have found. 

Kirkland Make up Wipes- These are not technically DRUGSTORE, but they are very reasonable. You get a huge box at Costco for $11.99. They really get your make up off. I know you are supposed to wash your face even if you use a make up wipe, but lets me honest I don't always want to, but after using these my face feels clean.

NYX Butter Gloss- THE BEST DRUGSTORE GLOSS they are creamy, long lasting, moisturizing, and highly pigmented. Do yourself a favor and go get your some. A lot of times they are on sale at Ulta buy one get one 50% off.

Elf Baked Blush- Very inexpensive and really good color payoff and the blend very nice.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner- These eyeliners I have heard are dupes for the 24 hour eyeliner pencils from Urban Decay. I can not say they are because I have never tried the Urban Decay ones. I love these they last all day and they are so smooth. I have black and nude. The nude is my favorite for the water line to brighten up my eyes.

Elf Brow Powder- Not Only is it SUPER inexpensive but it totally works! I have Super light Thin eyebrows and I always Felt like my eyes got lost. After I put this on I felt like My face felt Complete. 

Sensational Gel Polish- I had a coupon for this so I thought Id go ahead and try it.  I LOVE it, it Stayed on better than even my gelish gel polish. and is less expensive too. 

Do you have a favorite Drugstore product you can't live without? If so leave us a comment and let us know so we can try some new things out!

Thanks for all the recommendations girls, I'll have to try some of these out, and I totally agree on the ELF blush!

Duck Tape Pocket Folders

{Decorate paper folders}

I can't pass up a good Duck Tape craft, and when we can use it to make cute duct tape school supplies, it gets the kids more excited. I know that here we're only a month into summer vacation, and I'm already posting a Back to School craft! BUT, when Emily from The Benson Street invitedme to her Back to School series I had to do it :)
