"Do you want to try some new chocolate?"
Yes I do.
The answer to that question will always be a YES.
Chocolate covered grasshopers?
You can imagine my excitement when asked to sample Brookside Chocolate. "Sorry diet! I have work to do." I got to try two of their delicious flavors. Dark Chocolate Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry.
I usually don't like to add fruit to my chocolate. Why ruin a good thing? I must say I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy these are. The rich dark chocolate paired with soft fruit juice pieces work perfect together. The fact that they're bite sized makes them super addicting! I've already eaten a handful while writing this!
If I had to choose a favorite between the two flavors I think I'm leaning a little bit more towards the Dark Chocolate with Pomegranate. I think they're a tad bit sweeter. They're both delicious in their own way. The blueberry flavor really comes through with the Dark Chocolate Acai with Blueberry.
I definitely recommend trying these. Especially if you already like dark chocolate. You'll love them! You can discover Brookside at your local Sam's Club. On October 5th, 2013 Brookside chocolates will be doing in-store demos at Sam's Club. They will be giving out lots of samples. Bring your family and friends and try them out!

I'm warning you. These are addicting!!!

Elastic Hair Ties Pink N' Gray Set of 5 by PoofyCheeksShop - These hair elastics are the B to the OMB! Like I said I have long thick hair. These elastics actually hold up my hair without giving me a headache. They also don't leave a huge dent in your hair when you take them out. Don't you hate that? You put your hair in a ponytail in the morning and your committed to it all day because you don't want to walk around with a big a$$ bump in your hair. Then when you finally take it out you can feel every hair follicle on your head because it's so soar. These elastics don't do that. They're rad. End of story.
it's a 10 miracle finishing spray | drugstore.com - I don't use hair spray everyday. Only when I curl my hair. Here's my routine: I curl my hair. Spray it as I curl. Let it cool. Then I brush through it so I have soft wavy curls. I like this finishing spray because it's not sticky at all. I can brush through my hair and the final style will hold all day.
S-Factor by TIGI - They call this stuff "serious" conditioner and that's exactly what it is. It's thick. It smells like candy. It leaves my hair so freakin silky soft it's insane. Downside: it's not cheap and I am. Every once in a while I splurge and buy this.
Dry Shampoo | Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo | TRESemmé - I use this on days that I don't wash my hair. It takes the oil off my scalp and gives my hair some volume at the roots. It does leave a little white residue, so I don't know how well it works for dark hair. I just use a teasing brush to brush it away.
Johnson’s Baby Pure Cornstarch Powder - Magnolia Petals (15-oz.) - If you don't have dry shampoo use baby powder. Check out my tutorial on how to apply it HERE.
Tweezerman Hair Shears - The most important and easy thing you can do for your hair is get a haircut! A trim every 6-8 weeks does wonders.

Tweezerman eyebrow tweezer - I know spending more than $20 on twezzers is kind of ridiculous (If you're me) but, I love these. I've had these same tweezers for ten years and somehow they are just better than others. They just are.
M·A·C Eyeshadow CORK | Nordstrom - Mac Eyeshadow in Cork. I use it in the crease. I have blue eyes. It's great for everyday wear.
Elf Concealer & Under Eye Highlighter - I buy this stuff at Target (along with the other Elf products I use) for $3. It covers my dark under eyes without being too heavy. I use it under Bare Minerals powder foundation.
MAC Cosmetics evening eye makeup SHROOM - I use this as a highlighter on my inner eyes and brow bones. I pair it with the Cork.
Maybelline Voluminous mascara - I've always been a Maybelline mascara girl. They just make great mascara. This is one of my favs. I like how the brush fans out my lashes.
Sonia Kashuk Eye Lash Curler - Pretty basic must have. I curl my lashes before I add mascara. How do you do it?
