I happen to be a big fan of the handmade craft online community, Etsy. That is where I was lucky enough to stumble upon Teresa Ellis- fellow beauty blogger, makeup lover and talented craftsmen. I made my first purchase from her, a few months back, when I fell in love with a custom made lipstick holder (which is currently holding all my MAC lipsticks!). The other day she posted this cute-as-a-button makeup brush roll that I had to have. It was a steal at $14.50 (including shipping!) and arrived within three days of my order. I am borderline obsessed with this Barbie print and the custom brush holder fits all my brushes and stores neatly in my vanity drawer. If you're interested, check out Teresa's T Collection on Etsy and stop by her blog, The T Collection By Teresa Ellis, for other goodies!
While picking up a birthday gift for a friend of mine at Sephora, I picked up a guilty little splurge from Korres. Hailed as one of the best lip balms on the market, Korres offers their lip butter in several flavors including Plum, Wild Rose and Mango. I am on a huge orange kick, so I naturally went for the Mango. It adds just a tiny sheer tint, but feels so good on the lips. Not only does this feel great, look great but it tastes yummy too! I may just have to pick up another flavor!
