Freezer cooking!

So for those of you asking about the freezer meals that I've started, here you go!  I decided to start this because I work overnights at my job every other week.  Most of the time I'm too tired to cook for a couple reasons.  Taking care of Mila during the day and working through the night, doesn't allow much time for sleep.  Now all I have to do is take the meal out of the freezer the day before, thaw it in the fridge, then put it in the crock pot when I get home from work!  Here are the meals that I have made.  I still have to make two Chicken broccoli rice casseroles but I ran out of room in my freezer!  I shopped mostly at Aldi, which saved me lots of money, and got the rest at Dierbergs.  I spent a total of around $106 and got 2 weeks of food, not including left overs!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain

Balm stain in Cherish and Charm

These are new from Revlon and I got mine from Walgreens when they were 30% off. 1st of all let me say I love the packaging on these.  They twist up from the bottom so there is no need to sharpen them.

Cherish is a pretty light to medium pink that would look good on any skin tone

Charm is a light nude color.  This is very light almost clear on my lips. If you use a concealer to blank out your lips a bit, it should show up better

They do last quite a long time even through eating and drinking, but the shine does disappear.

These come in 12 different colors, retail for $6.79, and can be found at your local drugstore

Have you tried these yet? What do you think about them?

Revlon Haul

Revlon Lustrious Smoky Crayon in Bronze Smoke

Swatch of both Smokey Crayons

Revlon Diamond Lust shadow in Starry Pink
These have a TON of fall out so make sure to use them wet

Revlon 16 hour eyeshadow quad in Inspired
These shadows are nicely pigmented with minimal fall out.
The colors apply true to how they look in the pans
Revlon CustomEyes Mascara
You can chose between 
#1 length and Drama  
#2 Length and Definition.
So far I like this mascara.  It can be a little goopy so you'll need to scrape off the brush before you apply it

Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish in Buttercup

So far I do not care for this nail polish but I will give it another try

Sorry about the weird layout.  For some reason I couldn't get it to cooperate with me

NOTW- Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

Custom Search

I decided to give fake nails a go!  I never really use them, but my nails have been in horrible shape lately( thanks to my job), so I decided to try them out.  I really like the way they look and they were easy to apply!
I chose the Nailene brand in the active square shape.  You can find them at your local Walmart for less than $6.

I painted them in a very summery color- OPI Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

How do you feel about fake nails?
