  1. are you able to see the Target shirt on their website? Can you link? Thanks! 🙂

  2. YES! Love this episode! Your thoughts on cruises are spot on. I haven’t tried the Paula’s Choice Shine Stopper, but I am loving the boscia White Charcoal Mattifying MakeUp Setting Spray. I use it under my make-up and I don’t have to blot oil midday.

  3. Agree! I came here looking for that link too. 🙂 Loved this episode!

  4. I have not been able to find it yet Veronica. Ill keep looking though!

  6. I also recently read To Kill a Mockingbird! I hadn’t read it since high school and I think I loved it even more this time around. I’m now reading the sequel Go Set a Watchman. It’s interesting, but am not loving it as much.

  7. P.S. Meant to tell you that coconut oil is the best eye makeup remover! I just rub a little bit between my fingers, massage onto eyes, and then remove with a cotton pad. So easy and natural!

  8. Hahaha, a cruise ship kindred spirit! Thanks for the recommendation, I think we need all the oil control we can get.

  9. My mom gets those shirt holes where the button or belt is too. I was just making fun of her the other day because all of her shirts have it. No good advice here, it just made me laugh, sorry!

  10. Ha! There must be a solution!

  11. I wanted to mention, my eye doctor actually recommended Almay’s makeup remover pads for getting rid of Mascara. You can get them at any pharmacy and they are small round pads which are perfect for getting rid of even the most stubborn waterproof mascara! I use them only for my eyes since they are small but those things pack a punch!

  12. Good to know! Thanks Kayla
