6 Mugs, Water Bottles and Tumblers That Will Make You Squeal

Bottles

If you roll up to my crib and ask for something to drink, said beverage will probably be in a mason jar. I have a thing for mason jars. I put everything in ’em (helllooooo fridge oats) and I just love how cute they make everything look. When I’m not entertaining folx and treating myself to green smoothie, tea or ice water, chances are they’ll be housed in a mug, tumbler or water bottle.

And so, this is PERFECT timing for a Shopbop sale. I mean, when isn’t there a good time for a Shopbop sale? Tell me how much you love these…

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara review

Marc Jacobs mascara

Yeeeep, that’s a mouthful, ain’t it? I don’t think I’ve ever featured Marc Jacobs anything on Clumps of Mascara and is a darn shame, because I actually really like the brand. Their nail polishes are absolutely wonderful. Granted, it’s the packaging that I go gaga over, but shoot…I love me a higher-end brand that makes me feel all fancy when I’m using their products. Marc Jacobs is IT.

That said, I had been meaning to try this mascara for quite some time and I finally swooped by Sephora a month ago to test drive it. Like many higher-end mascaras, I had high hopes for it because well, it’s a $26 mascara. You’d have high hopes for it too, am I right?

My Blacklane Experience

Blacklane

Flying. I’m hitting the airport at least a half dozen times each year. It was about double pre-kids and now that I’ve got two babes in tow, it’ll be quite a while before I travel with both. Have you ever seen parents with more than one kid in the airport? Everyone is flustered. I’m not ready for it yet but when the time hits, I will definitely be using Blacklane.

I’m Not the Best Parent

Kid at Whole Foods

Well. I’m not. Is that a surprise? I hope not. Nothing makes me feel this more than when EB says ‘You’re not being nice, mommy.” 

One should never be that touched by what a 3-year old says but sheesh, raising this girl has proved to be well, uh…a challenge. And you know what? That DOES surprise me because I thought I would rooooock in this parenting thing. I thought that since I had so many siblings and was a nanny, babysitter, teacher and mentor to children that raising them would come fairly easy to me. Lies, y’all. All kinds of lies.

Sleeping masks! Have you ever used one?

Headwraps

Hey y’all! Happy Weekend from me and my Lipstick League sisters. Check out these hot posts circulating the web. 

Olive & Ivy – How pretty is this soft rosy brown eyeshadow look? You won’t believe how affordable everything used for it is!

Phyrra – has the deets on the new Makeup Geek MannyMua Palette! See the video, swatches and look. Would you wear it?

Prime Beauty – has been spending a lot of time in the shower thanks to the luxury Aroma Sense Shower Head. A lemon scent and tons of water pressure makes her a happy girl!

we heart this – (to read like Stefan from SNL) “This mask has it all: cream that turns into bubbles, a high but worth it price tag, a space age bottle…”

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara review

Revlon Ultimate All-In-One

I hate Revlon mascaras. Yeah, I said it. I know it’s pretty risky making such a claim about a brand as big as them but I’ve reviewed so many of their mascaras and most, if not ALL of them have sucked. I purchased their Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara only because a friend of mine wanted to get my thoughts on it. My expectations were anything but high so mmmm, let’s see if this mascara turned me into a believer.
