Fall for FALL! (Trend Alert!)

It's that time of the year again!  New trends and colors to add to your wardrobe for fall! 

Here are a few of the trends I am digging at the moment. 

1.  COBALT BLUE -  This color is super popular for the fall.  This color looks good on a lot of people.
I bought the above Max & Cleo dress last week for $30 on sale!  I changed out the ribbon belt...for a different look. This dress is featured in InStyle Makeover Mag (Fall 2010) for $118.  I got it for $30 from Ross Dress for Less!  $88 savings! 

2. LACE UP BOOTS - I love a nice new pair of boots when the colder weather creeps in. I absolutely love these boots!  They are French Connection, I have to wait for them to go on sale. But these will definitely be on my list!   

3.GREEN EYESHADOW -  I am really digging this look on Jada. This color is beautiful on many skin colors, you just have to blend and find the right shade.  If you are not this adventurous with makeup, Try a neutral/light gold eyeshadow and add a little green liner, or just a hint of green shadow in the outer corners.

Pep the Mascara Maniac!

Hey Ladies, I have been a very busy woman lately, and have not had the opportunity to update these past couple weeks....but it was worth the wait, because we have our first guest writer on Diaries of a Recessionista!

Pep is a college buddy of mine who has a secret obsession about mascara!
Lucky for us, we can use her addiction to find us the best there is in the beauty isles!!

Read Pep's message below!

Are you looking for an everyday mascara that gives you length and division? Look no further!

In my many trials and feeding my Mascara addiction, I discovered Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Lash Flirt Volume & Lift.

I found it walking into my local CVS and I was thinking what could it hurt to try a new mascara. I read what it offered and figured what can it hurt?

I normally use 2 coats and WOW!

$6.99 ( you can get coupons out the Sunday Paper)
Great separating brush that distributes evenly
Feels like you don’t have anything on

Although not waterproof it does not come off or flake easily

Till next time, Pep...the Mascara Maniac!


Thank you so much Pep!! I am running to Target tomorrow to try it!!

Ladies, look forward to hearing more from Pep...her next review will be on Falsies by Maybelline!
