Patricia Wexler Night Repair Cream

The time has come. I need to use a special night face cream. I've been using Patty's Night Reversal & Repair Cream for a couple years now and I still get carded sometimes when I buy alcohol (AND once last month while buying a lotto ticket!!) so I think it works pretty well. The good genes and extra weight I carry may help with keeping my baby face but I like to think this cream has a bit to do with it too. I like having that regime, it makes me feel like a starlet. I am going to admit that some nights (okay many nights) I barely wash my face but when I do, I am so good about applying this super think moisturizing cream to my face and neck. While I sleep, I envision everything being all repaired and perfect so when I wake up I look like Jennifer Lopez.

The entire Patricia Wexler line is pretty awesome. I use many of her products but this night cream is my fav! It's about $40 at Bath and Body Works, I use all sorts of coupons and often times it goes on sale. That's when I buy it.

Earth Therapeutics Moisturizing Socks & Gloves

Some people think going to sleep with sock on is just too uncomfortable... can you imagine sleeping with gloves on?! Both seemed like torture to me until I tried it. I still wake up quite often like M. Jackson (sans one glove), but for the most part, I keep them on. I do end up searching for the "other" glove, it's always somewhere in the the bed, or under the bed or beside the bed or even one time, it took 2 days to even find it but whatever.

You know how people say, you can tell the age of a person by looking at their hands... well, that motivated me to keep my hands in better shape- lots of lotion, sunscreen and by lubing my hands up and popping on the moisturizing gloves. After a couple nights sleep with your feet and hands being pampered, it sure does make a difference! The look and feel LIKE NEW!

Good Bargain too: about $6-$8 at Ulta. Target has them too.

I really love my bangs. They are not totally new but they have grown to the length that I really like best. They are long but not. Does that even make sense? Well, the most important part is that they are covering my eyebrows that need to be waxed and tweezed back to perfection. But since I am feeling too lazy and too cheap, that just isn't happening soon enough.

Getting bangs made me change my look a bit and even my attitude just a tad. I feel kinda hard ass with them. Not sure why, but I just do. Maybe b/c my hair is dark and how it frames my face. I feel like I might look like I give off the "Don't even THINK about messing with me- I've got bangs!" look. Uhhh, so yah. I like them, I love them- you should try some out, they grow back so it's a low risk investment. (FYI- I took a slew of pictures covering my face b/c I just wasn't feeling camera ready but I didn't look nearly as tough with hands over my face)
