When I started out in the mid 80's doing makeup as a professionally a lot of us used the little sponge applicator that came with the products or sponge wedges and cotton buds. There were brushes sold in higher end companies but it was really hard to change the way that I had applied makeup for years. I call my new Friday Blog post Frugal Fridays because everyone has a different definition for Frugal. I am middle class, makeup is my passion and I am willing to save and pay for higher priced one if a certain brush I can't live without. But never have I forgotten where I came from, so I shop for brushes anywhere from the dollar store to high end that I have to get from other countries. So,only you know what you can afford. These are recommendation for super affordable brushes that every artist needs in their collection. 1. The first company is E.L.F. , It stand for eyes,lips, face. There web address is : http://www.eyeslipsface.com/. The company has two lines of brushes. The essential collection, that start at $1.00. Their next range is the Studio Collection and they start at $3.00. I have many of these in my collection because when you are doing a Photoshoot sometime I don't have time to clean my brushes so I just have tons of those so that I can put them in a bin to clean at a later time. This is the essential collection the cost is 12.00 for the entire set.

The Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles that I received from Influenster Vox couldn't have come at a better time. I have been training with Physical Therapist / coach Jackie Mah with and also with Team Defiant barbell club. When I first started working out Jackie told me that the athletic shoe that I was currently wearing wasn't going to work. So my wonderful friend Jennifer Hall gave me a pair of Nike Shocks ( her holy grail athletic shoe). Comfort in an athletic shoe is very difficult for me because I have extremely flat feet. Now have new athletic shoe it better. But it wasn't until I received the Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles. That my workout became really comfortable. The Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles are designed to prevent pain from shin splints , Runner's Knee and Plantar Fasciitis. They are designed with a triple protection zone, The ball of the foot, padding was added to improve cushioning. The arch for reinforced to support foot. The Heel has a deep heel cup to absorb impact with every step. My athletic are now like waking on clouds. I am older and I need to protect my body as much as it can. And with the Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles I can do that.It makes training a delight. I want to thank Influenster Vox for the Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles, Jackie Mah for training me and believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself. Also for Jennifer Hall cheering all the way and bringing me Epsom salt when I hurt. To the team at Influenster Vox for providing me with the Dr Scholl's Active series Replacement soles. Influenster Vox you rock!!

To help me with my challenge I had my friend brew two cups of tea. One iced tea she made with sugar the other she made with Truvia Natural Sweetener. While she was doing this I worked in another part of the house. The time of truth was upon me, I tasted both beverages. Then I tasted them again, I couldn't tell the difference. The taste was spot on. So, I challenge you to take the Truvia Natural Sweetener Challenge. Send a comment to let me know what you think of Truvia Natural Sweetner!!!!

I rushed to open my Gillette Venus & Olay Razor that I had received in my Love VoxBox from Influenster. The first thing that I noticed is that it smells amazing. It is so easy to use. Dampen your legs , take long even strokes. Easy as one two three. Perfect silky smooth legs. Shaving and moisturizing all in one.My shave lasted six days. And It even has a hanger to dry it on. This is my new holy grail razor. It has five blades so all you have to do is take one long even stroke and the hair is gone. Plus, it leaves you legs silky and smooth. You have to try it. You will never go back to a regular razor.
