Archives for June 2017
Watching: Orange is the New Black, and we’re almost finished Shameless
Eating: Ice cream – it’s hot!
Doing: Working on our yard. I have dreams of having a vegetable garden, but not sure I’m willing to put in the work.
Thinking: A lot about how to let myself enjoy the life I’ve created. Sometimes it’s hard for me to get out of my own head and just be.
Planning: My first girls trip ever. My best friend and I are heading to Niagara Falls for a weekend in July. We just booked the hotel and I’m beyond excited.

I love a good deal, and along with Amazon, Ebay is my go-to for discount beauty products. There’s a wide selection of items for less than $1, which makes me smile oh-so-big.
What I Liked: The price cannot be beat. I found that one eyebrow brush goes for at least $3.99, while sets of eyebrow razors are $5+. After I received them, I actually found the exact same set of razors at Winners for $7.99.
The quality is comparable to local stores. I’m not talking Sephora quality, I’m talking Forever 21/Claire’s/Dollar Store quality. Regardless, the items are a fraction of the cost when purchased on Ebay. The eyebrow razors work perfectly, and the angled brushes are soft and exactly what I needed for my eyebrows and winged liner.
What I Didn’t Like: There’s only one thing I don’t like about $0.99 products from Ebay – the wait. I usually make sure I’m not in a hurry for the items I order because unfortunately, the wait for them to come from China can be up to 3 months.
My #1 tip? Pay attention to the date range for your item’s arrival. The second the items are late, file a complaint with Ebay/Paypal. Every time I’ve done this, I’ve received my money back (and still receive the items eventually!).
Final Thoughts: If you’re not in a crazy hurry to get your items, ordering cheap beauty products from Ebay is a win-win. There’s minimal risk in ordering crazy and fun beauty products when they cost so little.
