My ten product preferences (NOT a sponsored post)

Happy Sunday My Little Flowers...........................

I am trying to write more. Last weekend I attended a travel writing course, and it was very inspiring and was the little ray of sunshine that I needed. I really love writing, it really helps me organize my thoughts, is therapeutic and helps me reflect on my life in a more rational manner. I may write about that class later. I've been writing more lately, which is good. Not as much as I want to, but a little progress is still progress.

Anywho, as you've probably figured out, there is no theme to my blog. I just write whatever the hell I feel like, I just let it all out as I please, without caring if I have tons of readers or not. I write for me and cherish those few people that can relate to me and follow me.

I haven't given out product preferences in a while, so here goes. Here are they are, complimentary of yours truly, aka Senorita:

1.) I love using fine point Sharpie pens as regular pens. I am tired of using everything else, most pens leak all the time or have ink clumps which are so annoying. These fine point Sharpies make writing smooth, and bring me back to my childhood days where I felt like such a grown-up using a marker. When I was a kid, my mom made me use a pencil all the time, what was up with that ?

2.) I use Sharpie markers at work to label boxes or write an emphasized note to my boss and while I love writing in marker (makes me feel like a such a grown-up- see above), I really love using them because they smell good. I don't sniff them all the time, but when I am writing a note, I will take an extra wiff, as long as I don't see anyone standing around. Hey, I wouldn't want anyone judging me.........

3.) Don't use Sharpies to draw in your eyebrows.

4.) I am so over expensive conditioners. I love Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar to clean my scalp. I pour it into an empty hair-dye bottle and use a little on my scalp to cleanse it. It works just as well, and is waaaay less expensive.

5.) I also drink Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar with my water at least once a day. It helps balance the ph in my body, it also helps alleviate any stomach pains I may have (not related to stomach flu of course). Don't believe me ? Just look at all the testimonials on the internet. The key is using an apple cider vinegar with "the mother" which is a cloud of bacteria. Try not to use the distilled apple cider vinegar. Does it taste absolutely nasty ? Yeah, but I deal with it.

6.) I drink aloe vera juice mixed with prune juice to help my digestive system. I'm not gonna lie, it tastes absolutely fucking disgusting, kinda like drinking vinegar water, but I feel better after I do it.

7.) I like Urban Decay primer. I used to use Monistat anti-chafing cream as an inexpensive substitute for actual primer, but I never felt it really worked. Now I will just shell out the bux for Urban Decay, an expensive brand name.  I got their primer as part of a gift, but I think I will buy it when I run out.

8.) Monistat anti-chafing cream may not be an effective primer for me, but it really does work for anti-chafing. Especially in hot weather around my upper arms and armpits. Or if you're wearing a skirt and your thighs rub together.  We've all been there.

9.) I don't believe in expensive mascaras, when the 99 cent brands are just as effective. Spending over 2-4 bucks on a lipliner is also a total waste of money.

10.) I love Estee Lauder double-wear foundation which comes in a glass bottle, and may try more expensive department store brand names down the line. Usually the price qualifies me for a free gift if I buy it during a free gift season. I did try another foundation from Estee Lauder called Nutritious (comes in a plastic tube), but found it too oily, so I will just stick to Double Wear, or try another brand at Sephora or Nordstrom (Macy's blows).

Okay, so that is all for now.............

Besitos !

I will try to refrain from using Sharpie on my eyebrows ;)

Also another good primer is from Benefit. I do like the UD one too!

I think it's safe to say I haven't used anything that you've recommended, not even a sharpie. I feel I'm missing out on life now.

OK, I got stuck on the part where you said "don't use a Sharpie to draw in your eyebrows" because it reminded me of a family reunion where a woman who is apparently related to me do this very thing. It was SCARY!!!!
