My blog will always be nail polish, but I figured once a month I will showcase some under $10 general products I'm loving. These will most likely be in the cosmetics/beauty category, but you never know! I hope you find this helpful to you in your searches for products outside of nail polish.

Before I go, I had to share this picture of my cat from last night. She is something else!

I hope you all enjoyed this! Happy Mother's Day and have a great rest of the day!


  1. Aw, your cat is adorable! She looks like a less-chubby version of one of my cats, haha.

    Batiste is one of my favorite beauty products, too, and it's by far the best dry shampoo I've ever used. Way better than those crazy-expensive ones from Sephora. How is the Original scent? I've only used the Blush scent, which I like well enough. But I'm almost out and really need to go get another bottle..can..whatever.

  2. AHHH I used to have a bottle of Tahiti, Sweetie when I was in like 9th grade and I loved it! I totally forgot that it even existed, i'm so going to go get a new bottle of this next time i'm at the mall, it smells so yummy.

  3. jlove this! :)
    for some reason, they don't sell that maybelline eye shadow trio here. :(

    your cat is sooo cute.


  4. Jean- It's light powdery scent. I don't find it overpowering or offensive.

    Caitlin- I just got Tahiti,Sweetie for the first time a few weeks ago. I've been wanting to wear tropical scented things since it started getting warm here. This is exactly what I was looking for. Fruity tropical not coconut tropical, which I also love but it reminds me so much of sunscreen.

    Everyone-My cat appreciates your comments, but if she could talk she would say she already knows shes cute. She's definitely a Regina George (from Mean Girls) type. She thinks she amazing :P.

  5. i love shea foot cream! I ran out last night and ran to pick up more!

    I've been eyeing some of the dollar tree items you mentioned but I'm just kind of weird about it... I know it's a #1, but most of the stuff, at my dollar tree anyway, is all older, retired products, so I'm afraid to try anything. hah.

  6. I wouldn't worry about that at all. Many people find great discontinued beauty products at DT. I've never had an issue with anything, and it's not as if they were used. As long as everything is packaged and sealed it should be good.
