Cheap Thrills

1. Physician's Formula makeup


They're beautiful, long-lasting and cost less than $15 at the local drug store.




2. 5-dollar bracelets.


Loving the colors - and how they clink when I move my arm.




3. Turning A into B.


Not gonna get points for structural integrity or aesthetics, but this Art-chitecture was 30 minutes of undisturbed fun with the toddler.







4. Two for the price of one.


Two of my favorite mascara for one reasonable price - now that's thrilling.




5. Best lotion ever!


This Eucerin moisturizer lathered on evenly, and softened skin instantly.

Excellent formula. $10 at the most. I highly recommend.




6. Affordable hair care.


I've used Pantene for years. It leaves hair smooth and shiny. I like the new plant-based formula, because it's healthier and still works well.

If you haven't, please give them a try.





7. Olive oil as makeup remover.


It's a bit greasy, but does an excellent job with removing makeup. 

Mascara too.





8. This week's Time.


A few pages of pretty good writing: $4.99.

Feeling 0.0000001% smarter, or worldlier, or something like that: priceless.

(Seriously though, the Bee article was pretty interesting.)





 That's all for me.

 

How about you?
