Currently... June 2017

Watching: Orange is the New Black, and we're almost finished Shameless

Eating: Ice cream - it's hot!

Doing: Working on our yard. I have dreams of having a vegetable garden, but not sure I'm willing to put in the work.

Thinking: A lot about how to let myself enjoy the life I've created. Sometimes it's hard for me to get out of my own head and just be.

Planning: My first girls trip ever. My best friend and I are heading to Niagara Falls for a weekend in July. We just booked the hotel and I'm beyond excited.

Ebay Find: 99 Cent Beauty Tools

This post contains Ebay affiliate links, but all opinions are my own.

I love a good deal, and along with Amazon, Ebay is my go-to for discount beauty products. There's a wide selection of items for less than $1, which makes me smile oh-so-big.

What I purchased:

What I Liked: The price cannot be beat. I found that one eyebrow brush goes for at least $3.99, while sets of eyebrow razors are $5+. After I received them, I actually found the exact same set of razors at Winners for $7.99.

The quality is comparable to local stores. I'm not talking Sephora quality, I'm talking Forever 21/Claire's/Dollar Store quality. Regardless, the items are a fraction of the cost when purchased on Ebay. The eyebrow razors work perfectly, and the angled brushes are soft and exactly what I needed for my eyebrows and winged liner.

What I Didn't Like: There's only one thing I don't like about $0.99 products from Ebay - the wait. I usually make sure I'm not in a hurry for the items I order because unfortunately, the wait for them to come from China can be up to 3 months.

My #1 tip? Pay attention to the date range for your item's arrival. The second the items are late, file a complaint with Ebay/Paypal. Every time I've done this, I've received my money back (and still receive the items eventually!).

Final Thoughts: If you're not in a crazy hurry to get your items, ordering cheap beauty products from Ebay is a win-win. There's minimal risk in ordering crazy and fun beauty products when they cost so little.

Links Vol. 23

1. This closet organization has me inspired to tackle some closets in my house.

2. I want this water bottle SO bad, especially for summer.

3. My current favourite face mask. It's inexpensive and does the trick for oily skin!

4. I just bought this adorable journal for Brooke's birthday. I love a good monogram.

5. Dying to own this Tarte palette, but having series sticker shock.
