Battle of the Masks

Masks are a great thing but their cost is sometimes insane! L’Oreal came out with a drugstore version of my favorite blackhead clearing mask for a fraction of the price. Is it a dupe or should you splurge? Watch to find out!

What are some of your favorite high end and drugstore products?

Thanks to my friend, Brandy Davis, for lending me her face for this video!

VIDEO: I Splurged! #sorrynotsorry

On Friday night, I posted this tweet…

On Saturday morning, I binge shopped. After reading your suggestions I picked up products from Ulta, Sephora, the drugstore and even made my first stop into LUSH. Check out this haul to see everything I snagged. (You might want to grab popcorn because it’s 20 minutes long. Eek!)

Keep checking back for updates on this blog for my reviews. I will say that I’m absolutely in LOVE with Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipstick in “A Go-Go” and the MAC Zoom Mascara. oh em gee. #amaze I can’t wait to try everything else!

What beauty products do you absolutely have to have? What products would you recommend to your best friends? Please leave a comment below! 🙂

February Favorites

February. Only 28 days long but filled with plenty of my favorite things. Here are the Top 3.

3. My guilty pleasure: YouTube makeup tutorials. I’m trying to do a better job about saving money and these prove you don’t need to waste a ton of cash on high end makeup! In fact, most of the drugstore brands are BETTER than the expensive stuff.


2. Dr. Oz’s Two-Week Rapid Weight Loss Plan – The entire Fitz in the Morning team decided to give this a shot after we interviewed the man himself, Dr. Oz. In five days I lost five pounds! Check out my Stuffed Red Pepper recipe HERE for inspiration. Please comment with your favorite recipes, too!
