    Oh, I adore xojane! And Erno Laszlo black soap; it was one of my first products I bought because of a WHT recommendation and it’s LOVELY.

    My latest impulse purchases have all been the Revlon Lip Butters! I am in love with them, and I am NOT a lipstick girl. I own 8 of them now! (It’s a problem.)

    I will never be without Erno Laszlo soap if I can help it either! It lasts forever and is one of the best soap out there!

    My latest purchase was (and I shouldn’t have cause it’s pricey) Dior’s Creme de Gloss – # 735 Creamy Burgundy. It’s sooo pretty on. Yup, and a dab will do you with this one.. and the color is so intense I will only use it in the evening!

    Thrilled to hear about xojane, after posting this comment, I am hurriedly off to go check it out. I want to say that I enjoyed Sassy as a teen, but that is such a shabby understatement for my deep & abiding love for that magazine. Lol, I guess everyone who loved sassy, LOVED sassy. It really is one of those things, isn’t it? So thanks for keeping me informed:):)

    My mom loved Erno Laszlo, I have grown to love Erno Laszlo–they used to carry a makeup line that I miss desperately. Now it’s just skin care. They offered a sheer lipstick in a Berry shade that I have been unable to find in another brand. It makes my soul weep.

    My latest beauty-related impulse purchase was Wen Cleansing Conditioner. QVC has a limited edition scent in Ginger Pumpkin and I love all things pumpkin scented, so I finally decided to give this brand (which I was already curious about) a whirl. I washed my hair with it yesterday and I noticed my hair was shinier and my natural wave was…wavier. The scent isn’t as heavy on the pumpkin as I’d like, but I use Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin bath stuff this time of year, which is, so it’ll balance out.
