Hip Homemakers' Favorite Things 2014

Have you checked out our very first video introducing ourselves?  We would love for you to go check it out as we tell you who we are and we also share the Hip Homemakers' favorite things this year, 2014.

We briefly touch on the following items in the video but have more details about them below, check it out:

E.L.F Blush, color: Diva - Everyone loves E.L.F cosmetics because you just can't beat the price.  I use many of their products every day.  Sometimes you can use make-up items for other things than what they are intended for.  I use this liquid blush not only for my cheeks, but also for my lips!  This makes the best lip stain ever!  I apply it to a Q-tip and then put it on my lips for a color and matte look that will last all day, literally!  I sometimes put a gloss over-top.  I promise you, you will love it!  The color I use is called Diva.

Juicy Couture Perfume - My husband gave this perfume as a gift to me.  His mother is the one that actually recommended it.  I love a fruity smell in a perfume and this is a good mix of fruity and sexy.

Toma's Airbrush Spray - I don't know about you but every time I look at pictures of myself in the winter I look so pasty and white that I look sick.  It is hard sometimes not to over-use the bronzer in the winter to get rid of your pasty-ness.  I have used this airbrush tanner the past few years to give myself a glow in those winter months.  What I do is after I wash my face and apply my moisturizer, I go into my shower (without clothes on), so that they over-spray doesn't get all over.  Spray around the outside of your face so that it gives you a natural contoured look.  Let the tanner sit for about 15 minutes before applying your make-up.  FYI I don't do this every day; mostly when I have a special occasion or just want to look extra cute!

Unite Blonda Shampoo - Calling all blondes!  This toning shampoo is amazing.  Blonda shampoo will get you through those weeks that you have a bad grow out.  I usually wash with normal shampoo first then I shampoo with the Blonda. I leave it on for about 3 min.  If you are trying to tone out some yellow then you could leave it on longer.

Caldrea Countertop Cleanser - Sometimes I get so sick of my countertops looking dirty and dole!  I have used this countertop cleanser for years and love it!  The scents is comes in smell so good and so fresh and they are strong enough to make your whole home smell wonderful!  The price point is great, I love giving this as a gift!

Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Mascara- Who needs a good mascara? I hardly ever try new mascara but a friend recommended it on Instagram and I have become obsessed.  I do 2 coats of the colossal mascara (yellow tube) first, then I wait a few minutes and then finish my lashes with this mascara.
Maybelline The Colossal Mascara- I only use this before I use the falsies mascara.  Adds thickness to my lashes!!

Betsey Johnson Earrings - If you are like me, you don't splurge too often on jewelry.  I have found the once item that I feel okay splurging on, and when I say 'splurge' I mean $30.  These earrings are my favorite, I wear them with everything!  You can dress them up or dress them down.  They even look great with your favorite graphic tee and a pony tail!  

Wallet - Simple, convenient and organized.  Sometimes I don't want to take my purse and sometimes I just need to run somewhere quick.  This wallet is perfect for the mom on the go.  When I travel I use this wallet and it is perfect for my needs!  It comes in a lot of colors and cute prints.

Great Value Drink Mix - I am a water drinker and that means I pretty much only drink water.  Yes, it can get boring sometimes and that is why I have to kick it up a notch and add a little flavoring.  I have loved mixing these flavor packets into my water because it is a fresh taste and leaves me wanting to drink more water.  There are no artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors and it only contains 15 calories.

Eminence Face Products - Super expensive but totally worth it if you are in need.  I have a master esthetician I have always gone to and she has used this product for many many years.  This stuff is a splurge but I am obsessed.
