Precious Moments has Adorable Figurines for your Valentine!

Jewelry, candy, and flowers are the staple gifts of Valentine’s Day, but bonus points are always given to those who thoughtfully go outside of the box with their Valentine’s Day gifts!  I’m not suggesting you go full on practical with your gift like shelves or storage bins, just look outside the usual trappings.  Precious Moments has some adorably lovable figurines for your favorite Valentine that you can mix things up with!

Proactiv 3 Step Acne Treatment System Review

According to the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, 54% of women over the age of 25 have acne.  I’m here to say that, unfortunately, I think I’m one of those 54%!  I’ve never been really good at following a facial care routine, so I’m not sure if it’s actually acne or just dirty pores, but when I was given the chance by Facing Acne to try Proactiv, I jumped at it!  I had a friend in high school that used Proactiv right when it came out and raved about it, so I was excited to finally try it.

Stardom Crafts Liquid Chalk Markers Review

There are a lot of trends in crafts right now, but one I have just not jumped on board with is the CHALKBOARD THE EVERYTHING trend.  It’s a look I just don’t find appealing, most of the time.  I like things to look more precise, more measured, and while I have nice handwriting, I can’t draw for shit.  That said, I have previously bought cute little “chalkboard” clothespin signs and a standard white chalk marker for entertaining purposes, but found that the chalk never really removed from the signs.  I think being able to play with these liquid chalk markers had taught me the limitations and how I can be happy with a chalkboard look project!

Mia Adora 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Review
