7 Beauty Tips for Slackers

1. Keep your tweezers in the car and pluck in the parking lot, or when safely stopped at a stoplight. Ever looked at your eyebrows in the rear-view mirror – EEK! Save time in the morning by plucking in the car on the way to work. Plus, the natural light helps so you don’t miss some of those pesky strays.

2. Use L’Oreal BB Cream. It is a moisturizer (with SPF), primer and foundation all rolled into one. You can apply it same as you would moisturizer and it evens out your skin tone almost perfectly. Set it with a little powder and you’re done. Best part? It lasts all day, even with oily skin!

3. Dry shampoo could save your life. Or use baby powder if you’re cheap like me. Sprinkle a little bit in your hair, tease it with a comb and you may fool some people into thinking you actually showered.

4. If you have a gross zit, try tooth paste overnight. It works (sometimes).

5. If you’re running late in the morning, bloated or hungover and just want to wear a t-shirt and jeans to work, throw on a cute scarf, earrings and nice flats. It’ll make you look like you actually tried.

6. If you don’t have time to shower, pin back those bangs. I’ve gotten compliment before while wearing my hair like this – like people actually think that’s what I wanted to do to my hair…

7. Pre-game heavily before you go out at night. I find that getting ready while buzzed gives you a steady hand to apply eyeliner and leads to overconfidence. Super easy to do your hair and make-up if you already think you look good.

Note: If this ends up having the opposite effect and you cry because you hate everything in your closet as well as your face – just go to bed and do NOT leave the house. I promise you won’t regret it.

Sarah’s Favorite Things: Part 1

My middle name isn’t “I-Love-This-Song” for no reason. When I like something – I get really passionate, mildly-obsessive over it. So I’ve decided to start a series of posts dedicated solely to the many things I hold near and dear to my heart.

Here’s a list of some of today’s obsessions:

1. Vodka Diet Coke with Lime: Obviously.

Vodka Diet

2. Taco Dip: I’ve made this half a dozen times in the past couple months for football games, Christmas Eve and any other occasion that encourages people to eat ridiculously large amounts of food.

Super easy to make. All you need to do is mix 8 oz. of cream cheese, 8 oz. of sour cream and one pack of taco seasoning. Then spread that on a large plate and cover with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, green onions and cheese. Serve with a margarita.

3. SOCK BUNS: Best way to avoid showering in the morning when you’re feeling lazy and need to look nice.

4. Criminal Minds: Derek Morgan, duh.

5. Group Texts: …Because then I’m not the only one judging when I get a text like this on a Sunday afternoon. Looking at you Rachel…

What are your obsessions this week?

So we’re starting a blog…

After months of talk we’re finally doing it. Starting a blog. Channeling our inner Carrie Bradshaw, minus the whole sex column thing and expensive clothes. And this is serious, not just a “We’re gonna start a blog so the entire world can see how hilarious and insightful we are” blog and then stop three months into it. This is more of a “We’re gonna start a blog so the entire world can see how hilarious and insightful we are” blog and then actually keep up with it. Mostly because we invested $30 to get this domain name, so at least for the next year we’ll keep up with it …

Buckle up, folks. This is really happening.
