Makeup Monday - Sephora Favorites

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  


WEEK 29 - SEPHORA FAVORITES





Hi friends, and welcome to Week 29 of Makeup Monday.  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  I had a nice weekend going out to dinner with friends and family and I went to an appreciation  party at my church yesterday.  Today I'd love to show you a few makeup favorites that I purchased from Sephora.

My first favorite is Benefit Beyond Mascara - They're Real.  This mascara is amazing and makes your lashes look full and thick without any clumps.  It lengthens, curls, adds volume, lifts and separates the lashes without any smudging or drying out.  This color is jet black and the cost is $23.00.  To see the link at Sephora click HERE.

My second favorite is MARC JACOBS Gel Eye Crayon in the color 42 Blacquer.  This eyeliner gives you a dramatic look and gives your eyes some pop with intense color.  This eyeliner is perfect for a night out.  The cost is $25.00.  To see the link at Sephora click HERE.

My third favorite is Formula X New Classics Nail Polish in the color Harmonics - Deep Lilac.  This polish gives your nails high shine and dries fast.  This polish is a bold shade of lilac.  There are many shades available and the cost is $10.50 a bottle.  To see the link at Sephora click HERE.

My fourth favorite is Nails Inc. Gel Effect Polish in the color Mayfair Lane.  This polish gives the effect of a gel polish with a lot of shine.  The best part is there is no UV lights needed to apply this polish.  This color is a very pale pink and goes with everything you wear.  The cost is $14.00 and to see the link at Sephora click HERE.

I love shopping at Sephora and I do hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favorite makeup I bought there.  

Thanks so much for stopping by this week for Makeup Monday.  In case you missed any posts you can see them HERE!

Oat Bran Pancake Recipe Again!



Hi friends, back in November of 2012, I shared with you this recipe for Oat Bran Pancakes.  This recipe was given to me by our friend Ruby.  I would love to share with you this healthy pancake recipe again.


OAT BRAN PANCAKES

Minutes to Prepare: 2
Minutes to Cook: 5
Number of Servings: 1

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 tablespoons of Rolled Oats (Quaker Oats)
1 1/2 tablespoons of Greek Yogurt or Cottage Cheese - (I used Greek Yogurt)
1 egg (or egg white if you have cholesterol problems)
a dash of vanilla

Number of serving:  Makes 1 large pancake or 3-4 smaller pancakes

DIRECTIONS:

Put oat bran in a bowl, add Greek yogurt, one egg and a dash of vanilla.  Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and pour on to a non-stick pan that is sprayed with PAM.

Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.

Note:  Cut into strips and dip into nonfat flavored yogurt, you can use salmon fat free cream cheese or any flavored cream cheese instead of yogurt.

At night for dinner use a tbsp. of tomato sauce, Italian herbs, onion & garlic powder, red pepper flakes, and reduced fat shredded mozzarella melted on top! 


These pancakes will keep for at least a week in the refrigerator and wrap them in foil or cling wrap so that they do not dry out.  The pancakes can also be put in the freezer.

For more flavor you could also add in a dash of vanilla and cinnamon.


I hope you enjoy these pancakes because they come out fluffy and moist!  

Let me know if you make these pancakes and if you liked them.

Crochet Fun & Enjoying Fall!

Hi everyone, I'm glad to be back to blogging this week and feel refreshed.  I missed all of you and blogging so much!  Thanks to all of you that left me such sweet comments and featured me on your blogs, I appreciate it!  

I accomplished so much while I was on my break.  I did a lot of cleaning, winterizing the house, decorating for Fall and Halloween, crocheting, reading, taking long walks and the list goes on!


This is where I walked my dog Bosco the other morning.  It's very refreshing taking walks in the early morning and Bosco keeps me moving.  We usually walk for a half hour everyday.



Here is a neck warmer or cowl I crocheted along with hand warmers too.  I only had a small skein of yarn to use so this was the perfect project to make.





While I was busy cleaning and decorating my house for Fall and Halloween I could not find the little pumpkins that I crocheted last year.  I was so upset so I decided to crochet new ones.  I made 6 new pumpkins.  In this picture is only 5 but I did make another white pumpkin.  



To see the pattern to make your own you can click HERE.



I'm on Instagram and to stay connected with me and see my photos you can find me at @brklynhousewife HERE!

Makeup Monday will be back next week, but in case you missed any, you can see them HERE!


Wishing everyone a Happy Columbus Day!

Makeup Monday - e.l.f. Cosmetics

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



WEEK 28 - e.l.f. Blush


Hi friends, I hope you all had a nice weekend.  I had to find out about all the hype on e.l.f. cosmetics, and by the way e.l.f. stands for eyes lips face!  I had been seeing so much on Pinterest and on beauty blogs about their cosmetics and never tried them before.  I decided to go to Target recently to buy some things that my family and I needed and discovered that Target sells their line of makeup.  

I decided to buy just one item since I have never used any of their makeup before.  I bought their blush and I love the color I bought - it is called tickled pink.  It looks good on my skin and goes good with my blonde hair.  The blush is a light subtle color and it gives a soft and natural look.  




I'm very happy with this blush and I would recommend it to you and you can't beat the price at $3.00.  The size and the packaging reminds me of the blush I just bought recently from NARS and I paid $30 for it!  To see that blog post in case you missed it, you can click HERE.  To see the link for the e.l.f. website you can click HERE.  To see how to purchase this blush from Target you can click HERE.  

Here is the description on the back of the box for the blush:  The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish.  Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth.  Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow.

Have you tried any e.l.f. cosmetics?  I hope I was helpful and maybe inspired you to try their makeup!

Thanks for stopping by today for Makeup Monday and see you all next week.
