Nightmare Before Christmas Must-Haves from Townleygirl

 

If you’re like my daughter and I, you have a few favorite movies that you just have to watch every year.  Around this time of the year EVERY year we just can’t get enough of the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.  The classic Tim Burton movie is timeless and kids (and adults) of all ages just can’t get enough.  With Halloween just around the corner, what could be better than some Nightmare Before Christmas themed goodies from Townleygirl?  That’s right, new to the Townleygirl lineup this year and just in time for the fall season you can get your hands on a whole fabulous collection of spooky stuff.

What little girl doesn’t love lip gloss, right?  This 4 Pack Lip Gloss with Coffin Carrying Case is the perfect addition to any little girls collection.  This set includes four flavored shades of lip gloss and a coffin-shaped tin for storage, all featuring your favorite Nightmare characters!  The included lip gloss colors and flavors include: rose raspberry, green watermelon, purple grape, and magenta bubble gum.

Lip balm is another must for every little girl and this Mood Changing Lip Balm Set with Bonus Bag is no exception.  These lip balms dressed up as lip sticks are the perfect Halloween season accessory.  Their shades shift with her mood, perfect for embracing a variety of looks.  You’ll also find a bonus bag featuring Jack Skellington, because who doesn’t love a little Jack in their lives?  Your little one will say “oh look, what’s this?” (in my best Jack Skellington voice).   Lip balm colors and flavors include yellow bubble gum, warm red cherry, and purple grape.

Every woman out there (whether they’re 5 or 95) knows that the nails complete any look.  This Coffin Nail Polish Set is sure to make heads roll!  It includes three vibrant shades of polish in coffin-shaped bottles, plus a spook-tastic nail file and of course they all feature your favorite Nightmare characters! These lavender, fuchsia, and red polishes will add a bit of flair for any occasion.

Turning into Sally herself is the ultimate way to have some Nightmare fun.  The Ultimate Sally Dress Up Set is a must for any little Sally-lover.  This set has everything your little one will need to emulate her favorite rag doll.  Complete with lip stick, lashes, face paint, eye liner and much more!  The eyelashes worked well, but made my daughter’s eyes ‘itchy’ so they aren’t pictured here, we used a little mascara to give her long black Sally lashes.  This set includes 4 wells of face paint, lip stick, sponge with stick, eye liner pencil, sponge brush, faux set of eye lashes, body paint and sheet of tattoos.  

Keep an eye out for this new lip balm set on the Townleygirl website soon.  It’s a new, hot item and will be a favorite among Nightmare fans of all ages.  (I’m not ashamed to admit I kept one of the Jack Skellington lip balms for myself!)

Get That Sun Kissed Glow This Summer With Hard Candy

content_Hard_Candy_Horizontal_Logo.jpg

HardCandyMain.jpg

This summer is the perfect time to keep your skin looking great at great prices.  Hard Candy has tons of great options available, but I’m totally in love with their glowing skincare items.  Whether you’re looking to illuminate or add a little bronze, Hard Candy has perfect options that won’t break the bank.

HardCandy2.jpg

This Hard Candy Sheer Glow All The Way is fabulous!  This pearly, luminizing highlighter brings radiance to all skin tones.  Apply the cream highlighter to your face and body for a luminous, pearlescent glow.  Every shade in the range is infused with real 24 karat gold, so your look will really sparkle.  The light, airy formula applies evenly to face and body without streaking, and dries onto skin so that it will not rub off on to clothes.  To use, simply apply a desired amount to the high points of your face: cheekbones, brow bone, and top of the nose.  On your body, apply as a highlighter to collarbone and shoulders; or apply as a bronzer to your entire body for a sun kissed glow no matter what season it is.  Glow All the Way is available in sheer, radiant, and tan shades. The Tropical Tan shade is formulated with a sunless self-tanner to gradually give you an all-over, lasting, bronzed glow.  I live in Arizona so during the summer my skin tone gets a few shades darker after spending so much time out at the pool.  I love the variety of shades offered in the Glow All The Way line…I can keep wearing my fave look all year long!

HardCandy1

Glow All The Way is another fabulous line with great results you’ll love at a fraction of the department store prices.  Wear them the same way as the Sheer Glow All The Way for great looking skin all day long.  I really love the Doll Face (pink bottle), it highlights your skin tone with a hint of rosy color to create a beautiful, youthful skin tone.  As a tired, 30something year old mother of 3, I need all the help I can get and Hard Candy is my go-to fix for my tired skin.

Whether you’re looking for great skincare this summer or just plain fabulous eyes, lips, and nails, Hard Candy has everything you need to stay looking great all summer long.

The Motives Costmetics line is for everyone from makeup artists, to salon owners, or just the everyday woman like myself.  I received a few different items to review and I couldn’t wait to try them out!Lumiere.jpg

The Lumiere de Vie Intensive Hand & Body Creme is SO appreciated by a busy mom like myself!  Between washing dishes, doing laundry, cleaning bedrooms, bathrooms, the living room, and tending to pets, my hands are washed constantly!  My hands are always so rough, dry, and painful from being over-worked and over-washed.  This creme is an intensive rich creme that saturates skin for long-lasting hydration. With nutrient-rich ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil and sunflower seed oil, this powerful creme helps break the cycle of dryness and dehydration to give skin a new softness and suppleness.  I have had a hard time finding something that keeps my hands feeling great through all the abuse they endure, but the Lumiere de Vie Intensive Hand & Body Creme has worked wonders!
