I'm Alex. I'm a classic twenty-something navigating my way through life. I like to make pretty things, pretend to cook, fuel my caffeine addiction and shop online. I write a lifestyle blog about DIY projects, recipes, beauty products and my everyday adventures.
LOVE using H&R Block's online services. Filing your taxes is easy, and it is great that they store your past returns and information within your account. We have only ever used the online version, and have never met with a tax preparer in a store, but I bet that's great too.
This is an extremely easy service to use, as it walks you through all the steps needed. My husband and I have run into a few issues with this software in the past few years, as we have earned income in a couple of states. The cost of adding another state return on Turbo Tax isn't worth it in my opinion. If you have a simple return though, I'd recommend it.
I LOVE the smell of these products and think that my hair has never felt better when I use it. I have an oily scalp usually but can get some acne in my hairline. I have color treated hair, and I know that Nexxus is going to be safe and gentle on it. I do think it is a little bit expensive.
The original formula of Pantene shampoo is my favorite. It has a nice scent and makes my hair super silky and shiny. I love to buy the travel packs to have on hand when we travel, or when guests are visiting. I would certainly recommend this product.
This is a great drugstore mascara. It lengthens and volumizes, probably as good if not better than some high-end mascaras. I always get my Revlon products at Walgreens or Target, but I have also seen them at CVS. I would definitely recommend this product.
Love this stuff. It is great after you've been in the pool or at the beach, and want your hair to dry wavy. Be careful though, because this product does have a tendency to weigh down hair and feel sticky if you use too much. I think this is a great salt spray to keep in a beach bag.
These are so gentle on skin, and yet get all makeup off (including stubborn mascara). I buy these again and again, because I love that they are effective, and the scent doesn't bother me. I think that these can be a little pricey if you buy a single pack, but I've been buying them in bulk at Costco and it seems cheaper.
These are a staple in my backpack and purse. I have oily/combo skin, and these are perfect for blotting my T Zone without messing up my makeup. The packaging is fine, nothing special. I also have tried other brands of this product, and keep coming back to Clean & Clear because they are so good.
I love using this powder foundation in the summer, because it feels great on my oily skin. The product blends well, and I love that the packaging has a little piece of mesh to contain the powder. I highly recommend this if you have oily/combo skin, and I find it is best used with a fluffy kabuki brush. tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation
