Gratitude

curioushappyblogger.wordpress.com image 

Imagine I here checking old post to see if I missed any comments and discovered that that 22 year old cutie Christina from Chrisamor Goodie Jar nominated us for a Liebster Award. The purpose of the Liebster Award is to promote blogs that have less than 200 followers, and to generate attention towards them. I certainly appreciate the thought and welcome any chance to "pay it forward".

On to the questions...

1. What was your inspiration to start blogging and what keeps you inspired?

I think we started *this* blog, Heidi had two others before this, to expand on what we were doing on our Facebook page. Our Mavenz' feedback keeps us at it. Every question, comment, like, share, retweet...thank you, thank you, THANK YOU :)

2. What is your biggest source of joy at current?

Sleep.
Ok, onna real; helping people. I actually want that on every business card for all the companies I'm involved with: Lucinda Robinson. Helper.

3. How many siblings do you have?

I don't have any biological siblings, that I know of, but I have two "adopted" brothers and two sisters.

4. Stranded on a deserted island, what would be your essentials?

Water and chocolate. Preferably Cadbury Fruit and Nut but M&Ms would suffice.

5. What's your favourite ice cream flavour?

Chocolate. I know, borrrrrring.

6. What if the one thing you wish you could have most right now?

Besides 9 billion dollars in cash? Tods Gomminos. All. Of. Them.

7. How do you cope with sadness/disappointment?

I try to remember that sadness, much like all feelings, are temporary. Disappointment however gets me madder than a mofo! But hey, "this too shall pass".

8. When it comes to makeup, do you save or splurge?

Oh lord now. Errrr, both? I buy whatever tickles my fancy.

9. Who is your blogger crush?

Temptalia, duh!

10. Coffee, Tea or Hot chocolate?

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

With Key Ingredients:

Purified Lactic Acid: One of the most hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), Lactic Acid exfoliates the surface layers of t…

It's A Dupe!

Long time no dupe.

Corny? I know. I try.

Faithful readers would have seen me rave about the Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, a.k.a Face Cement, numerous times. Well, we have a dupe: The Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer. I knew it instantly. So instantly that I've used the MUFE twice and decided that it's ridiculous to keep both since they are the same.

You can read all about the Becca primer in the link above so I'm just going to talk about the MUFE version here.

Can you tell which is which? No? Well, neither can I.
