First week of Jr. High is in the books.
I was a basket case last Monday night, but my son was all cool, calm and collected. He kept telling me, “Mom it’s just school”.
He found all his classes with no problems at all and breezed through the week like a champ. He even had no issues with his Invisalign at lunch.
So I guess in the end he was right.
It’s just school.
Although I am still a bundle of nerves.

I usually have this post up when the sun rises, but I did not get around to blogging this weekend. We have been engulfed in getting all my sons school supplies ready to go for tomorrow. Thank goodness I bought most of the supplies on clearance last year.
Awesome tip if you have the school supply list for this year especially for elementary it rarely changes so when everything goes on clearance buy what you need for the following year. Makes back to school shopping so much easier and way less expensive.
I am not ready for this big step to Junior High but my son is not phased by it at all so I have to keep my cool and just go with it.
Even though I am a bundle of nerves and want to cry all day cause he is growing up toooo fast.
Now for the makeup. I bought these ELF baked shadows a couple months ago at Target. For $3 each I am quite impressed with the pigmentation and lasting power with and without primer.
I have them in the colors Toasted, Dusk and Bark

On Friday I went into Walgreens to get toothpaste and came across this
It is called Three’s A Party and they are from the Wet-N-Wild Pop Art Craze color icon trio collection. I am not sure how I will wear this, but they were GA Bulldog colors so I had to have. My friend suggested it would be great for a zombie look for Halloween. So maybe I will have to test them out on Bub
I also picked up Hard Being The It Girl because I really like the Brow bone and Eyelid shades.
They were $2.99 so if you want some fun colors for special events or if you like to wear bold colors everyday these are definitely on the cheap and pretty good quality.

I bought two products through the 100% pure website about 2 months ago. I can not believe it has been that long. Is summer vacation really almost over .
The two items were the Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
try saying that three times fast & the Glossy Locks Honey Coconut Milk Conditioner.
I absolutely love the eye cream. It claims to depuff while increasing circulation to brighten dark circles and make the eye area look more wide awake and youthful.
I have noticed that my under eyes look brighter and definitely not as puffy. But the main reason I love this stuff is it smells like a coffee latte. I just want to eat it
but I won’t. I also have no sensitivities to the formula. So a big thumbs up for the eye cream.
I absolutely do not like the Conditioner. It claims to detangle, gloss and repair damaged dried out hair. All I can say is a big fat No Ma’am it does not.
First off it smells awful. One review I read after the fact said it smelled like play dough and I have to agree but more like Coconut honey infused play dough. Umm Grooossssss.
It felt very odd in my hair to. It was more thick and greasy feeling then glossy and detangling.
I only paid $8 for this product and did not feel like dealing with the hassle of returning it so I decided to use it as shaving cream and I must say it works well, but still smells so definitely a thumbs down.
I think from now on I will stick with ordering the 100% pure products and not any of the other brands on their site. I really want to try their makeup line that is made with fruits, teas, coffee and chocolate… Mmmmm my face will be smelling yummy.
