So I just scheduled a Friday post for y’all, yesterday! (I mentioned on Thurs I was super busy) Wrote it a few weeks back, left it in drafts, and simply changed the time stamp! Very handy stuff. I mean, I get that it’s Friday, but now it’s like 8:00 and most people are now out having fun.
Erm. It makes sense in my head.
I have my own private little Post Secret for Sunday – I’ll post it up with an explanation. Aren’t you soooo excited, lol?
My temporary dry skin solution (temporary, because I know it’s not nearly moisturising enough for winter, or maybe even summer, weather.): London Drugs Fragrance Free Hypoallergenic Baby Oil.
What it says on the back of the bottle: Our Baby Oil provides all-over skin conditioning for babies and adults. Smooth on after bathing to soften, restore moisture, and prevent dryness and flaking. (*note: I find that this makes my skin too oily. See below.) Perfect for removing eye make-up, and replenishing the skin after sun exposure.
Ingredients: Paraffinium Liquidum. Just one simple ingredient, no smells or fragrances!!
Application: In the shower, after soaping. I put it into a travel-sized pump bottle, and I just pump it into my hand and slather all over. Because it’s oil, it won’t wash off when I rinse my hair, and just the right amount is left on – I towel dry, don’t moisturise, and there’s enough left on my skin to keep it hydrated, but not greasy.
Cost: Under $5 for 600mL! Ah, don’t you just love it when you can use something cheap in place of something more expensive? Lol!!
I wish: It was a gel, because the I bet it could be applied post-shower a lot more easily, and a lot less greasily.
Great for: Everyone but me! I love how there is no scent, and how it makes my shower routine a bunch shorter, but I know that with my dry skin, this will not last me through the winter. So, once I run out, I will not be rebuying – but if you’re a hurried woman, or man, on a budget, with normal skin, this is a great solution.

AWOL for a while, swamped with work and very hungry! I think I forgot to take time for dinner, again.
I won’t be gone for too long – if I’m gone any longer than Saturday, I’ll let you know. Promise!
See you Saturday :)

If you are one of these elusive creatures, I’ve linked to the selling page for each in the text below each photo!
This adorable Betsy Johnson “Rhondelle” necklace was just too cute not to post! $54 from $110 here. I wish it was symmetrical, though…
Now this is a hot tote at a great price – Bloomingdale’s Leather Tote, a true steal at $80, from $200!! If I bought leather, I would buy this. In black and red. I don’t buy leather*, but… can we make an exception?
Okay, so the model wearing David Meister’s Off the Shoulder Matte Jersey dress looks awkward as hell, but this is a really cute $170! (From $290)
The best for last! I love love love this Rickie Freeman for Teri Jon Envelope dress, and once again I’d totally buy it for $141 and wear it to grad, if they had my size. Actually, I’d buy it for that price and just keep wearing it over and over again, because it’s so damn gorgeous! (I would even lust after it for it’s original $300 price tag. That’s how much I love it.)
WAIT. They do have my size. *desperately wants it*
