Currently Loving | Jil Jordan Manicure Set, MAC, & VS

           Being away from the blog for so long made me realize how much I love writing and taking pictures. How are you all doing? I am still recovering from what I thought was just a fever. My doctor told me today that I have fluid in my throat. I cannot hear well in my left ear as a result. He prescribed antibiotics for the infection in my throat, and steroid for the inflammation of the Eustachian tube in my ear. I hope everything gets back to normal soon. I miss hearing myself talk, although I am not a big talker. I also hate having to tell people to repeat themselves.
Have you been loving anything special lately? I have a lot of products that I love a little too much and won't stop buying. Aussie 3-minute miracle conditioner is one of them. It is affordable and so effective.  But today I want to share with you a few beauty products that I have been loving. I reviewed the MAC Powder  here, so you probably know why I love it. I am also sharing with you Jil Jordan Manicure Kit, and Victoria's Secret Mist collection fragrance and body lotion.

             My MAC Studio fix powder and foundation fell on a concrete while visiting a waterfall last year. I beat myself up and was very upset.  I had trouble remembering the shade when I tried to buy it online. I ended up buying one that was a few shades lighter than what I had. I gave it away, but was unable to find my shade online. Hubby and I were on our way to lunch when we stopped by the mall to get one at Macy's. It was a $29.00 well spent. That's how much I love that stuff.

         I stumbled upon Jil Jordan Manicure set while doing some shopping a few months ago. And boy, am I glad I did! This particular set has been discontinued. I tried to find it on Ebay so I could buy another one, but they were all sold out.  If you find a set like this one, please let me know so I can run and buy it. The magical tool from this set is the 4-way nail buffer. It files, buffs, cleans, and shines the nails. After you are done with all 4 steps, your nails will look like you had a gel manicure. That's how good that set is. I paid less than $5 for this set. And I am willing to pay more than that if I get a chance to buy it again.

              When the Mist collection from Victoria's Secret came out, I was way over my monthly budget and decided not to buy anything. But my husband took me to a Victoria's Secret store in South Carolina last year and told me to get whatever I wanted. I got the Goddess mist and lotion. They cost me about $36.00. I use these before going to bed, right after my shower. They smell oh so good!
Please pray for me so I can get better. Thanks for making blogging a safe place for us all!
