Out With The Old...

Sometimes being a frugal Lifestylist® can get you into trouble. Cosmetics and beauty products are so expensive, I just hate to throw them away if there is even a little bit left. Today I decided to break that cycle and let go of some items I've held on to for waaaay too long.

I read somewhere recently that you should throw your toothbrush out after you have been sick, and that really makes sense. Past their prime moisturizers and skin products can cause a lot more damage than good. I've heard that 6 months should be the longest something is kept, but I would check with the manufacturer to get their recommendations.

When I went to replace the items I finally let go of I decided to go back to my frugal ways and try some products that are modestly priced but have been getting great reviews. I'll let you know what I think and hopefully we can all save some money this year!

Beauty and Style Resolutions for 2012

Happy 2012 from the Lifestylist family! January 1 is always a day I look forward to - it's like every year we have that wonderful opportunity to start fresh and make this a better year than the last.

There are some moments in 2011 I wouldn't trade for anything (especially the birth of my beautiful new grandson) but there are other areas that I hope to do a better job on this year.

iVillage has a great list of Beauty and Style resolutions I thought I would share - I can't think of a better place to start working on a great, healthy 2012. Take a look and let me know which is your favorite.
