Yummy411: Go Mommy Go! Etsy Newbie

I learned about Etsy from I Like Her Style a while back, but being the apprehensive online shopper of small e-tailers, I never indulged until I saw this Etsy post by the 'bluetiful' Virtuous Blue babes.

I broke my Etsy cherry....

...on these earrings from AccessoRehab!

My locs aren't quite long enough yet to rock these, but my sister was able to!


She looks great in them! Can't wait to wear them!

She put these on to spice up her 7 minute mommy look as she doesn't have much time with her two little ones (21 month old -- yes months describe development! The mommies know what I mean! And her nursing 3 month old)

Face: CoverGirl Tru Blend Foundation (5) with a bit of moisturizer to make her own tinted moisturizer, (in T Zone and cheeks) MAC Golden Bronze Loose Iridescent Powder

Eyebrows: CoverGirl CG Smoothers Brow Pencil in Dark Brown to lightly fill in brows

Cheeks: MAC Blossoming Cream blush

Eyes: a bit of MaxFactor Pan Stick foundation (133 Rich Beige) as brow highlight and under eye concealer, Clarins Waterproof Eye pencil in 01Noir-Black, Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil in 04Turquoise on waterline, MAC Plush Lash Mascara in Black

Lips: Maybelline Lip Polish in Pinch of Pink 06

Go Kia, go!

Etsy's great for fun pieces of jewelry! I have to stop with the jewelry shopping already; my jewelry tree is already getting a bit crowded.

Actually, there's one store I buy my shave creams from:

http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5267741

It sells a bunch of great skincare stuff and is worth a look see. It's shave week, so I'll try to post a review of the cream, tomorrow or the day after.

Koffee "Trecia" said...

yummy411 said...

@ danielle: hey! thank you! they aren't heavy at all. My guess is that they are made of wire, foam and a stretchy nylon cloth of some sort. innovative and fresh, but i do find them grazing my shouldes as they are huge! ;) but oh so fun.
