Nature's Gate Toothpaste

In my quest for Cruelty-Free product use only, I have been scared to actually switch my toothpaste. I've been a Crest user all my life and to make the switch now seemed almost CRAZY. I finally bought a cruelty-free toothpaste after asking people and searching the web. I not only bought it and used it, but I love it. Nature's Gate spearmint paste is really refreshing. I like the packaging too. Something about the simplicity of it all. So far it works, (well... someone, be a pal and please tell me if it isn't.)

It's a bit more than my normal paste but, I am willing to spend the extra money if I know an animal didn't have to suffer so I could have clean teeth.
Found this at Sprouts on sale for $3.99

Surgi Honey Wax Face Strips

Yes, I did it. I am announcing to my solid 10 readers that I love Surgi Honey Wax Face Strips. I'm not gonna lie. My lip needs to be waxed, I blame the Italian genes. Eyebrows too but I leave those to the pros. The lip, it's easy-- just take it all off. These strips are so easy.... so while I am getting ready in the morning, I notice a 'stache, I can just quickly take care of it with these easy no heat strips. The ol' microwave doesn't need to be used and it saves so much time.

Simply rub the 2 strips in the palms of your hands to warm them up a bit, pull them apart and you have two strips, one for each side. Pop them on and voila-- no 'stache. Easy. Maybe a little tweezer here or that to make sure it's all good and you are done.

About $7, and you can be all- women for the day.

Velvet-Like Hangers

I don't know about you, but I know for me- personally, if my clothes make it on a hanger-- they better stay on the hanger! It's enough of a chore getting laundry done but then actually putting the clothes away-- sheesh! That's why these hangers are so important to me. Too often, I see clothes that have slid off the hangers and end up on the floor. This is not okay.

This is why you need these wanna-be velvet hangers, they grab the clothing a bit so they do not slide off--- even those wide necked tops stay.

For Real. Invest in at least 50 of them for only $15 at Costco.
