Have you entered my Vanessa Eves Giveaway yet?? It's a classic piece, you won't want to miss out!

So I've been having a love affair with Aveeno products lately. The SPF is beyond silky smooth to blend in and it's scent-less so it's not at all irritating. The eye brightener is a little magic wand for my eye-bags, now I'm not sure it's actually doing anything but it sure feels nice! For your chance to win $100 in Aveeno and J&J products just leave a comment below, and I'll choose a name at random. Good luck! 


  1. I will have to search for the Caramel Apple Spiced Ale from Blue Moon! Sounds delicious!
