Fashion Finds Galore at Saks Off Fifth in King of Prussia

When I set out to curate my ideal handbag closet my wallet hid in fear. This endeavor would cost me thousands of dollars if I didn’t play it smart. Since I’m not ever one to pay full price for fashion I knew that I could grab great finds by shopping at outlet stores.

Using Carefree® in the Morning Creates Carefree and Confident Days!

MAC Cosmetics Work it Out Collection Review and Swatches

I am a sucker for colored mascara. Since I work in a lab I can get away with some non-traditional makeup looks. The only problem I run into is finding a GOOD colored mascara that is pigmented enough to apply alone and actually show up on my lashes. One of my absolute favorites is the DiorShow mascara.
