Beauty: One Love Organics

I have very sensitive skin. Very. To the point where I just stopped washing my face at night because no matter what I used, I would wake up with a very irritated looking face. Last week, for no particular reason, I decided I had had enough. I sent out a tweet to my lovely friend Meghan of High Plains Thrifter and Elizabeth Dehn of Beauty Bets for suggestions. Elizabeth responded with lightning speed and suggested One Love Organics and Arcona LA. I decided to start with One Love Organics travel pack as a sampler. I can't remember the last time I was more pleased with a purchase. First of all, their customer service is stellar. They sent my order less than 24 hours after I placed it and sent me receipts and tracking numbers- my favorite.The best part- the products work great- my skin looks and feels rejuvenated and smooth- I was instantly thrilled! No redness, bumps are subsiding and I even feel glowy. Oh, and it all smells really good. This stuff is pricey so if you don't have endless disposable income, do what I did and try the Essentials To Go for $48- I promise you won't regret it! The application of the products is a little nontraditional, but don't fear, they have tutorials too.

Freaking out over: Mad Men for Estée Lauder

Shake. Stir. Seduce. The Mad Men Collection for Estée Lauder. YES, PLEASE. I was a little disappointed when the Mad Men for Banana Republic collection came out last year- it just wasn't the retro glory I was hoping for, but my hope is again restored with this new Mad Men collab. The only have two offerings, but they are pretty exciting ones! One Lipstick ($25) in Cherry and a Creme Rouge ($40-that's blush, ya'll) in Evening Rose. I might have to buy them both for their pretty packaging alone! Get yours in time for the Mad Men season premiere this Sunday 9/8c on AMC. (BTW- if you have cable, and want to have me over to watch it I would gladly accept the invite).

Freaking Out Over: Maybelline Lash Stilletto Eyeliner + Halloween

(in blackest black)

// $7.25

AND we are exactly 60 days away from Halloween!

Hostess with the Mostess already posted some absolutely to-die-for Vintage-Style Haunted Halloween Party ideas. I'm so excited to put some of those to use along with this adorable idea for apple cider cups originally posted on Gimme Some Oven

Besides all of that you know what makes me happiest of all? It's going to be 95 tomorrow here in Minneapolis and I am heading straight for the beach after work. Going to need to soak in enough Vitamin D to last until April....or May...or June if we are really unlucky. Hope you are all enjoying these last moments of summer (sniff sniff). Here's to a great September!
