EauMG’s August 2017 Empties

August 2017 Empties

Let me just say I bought so much while I was in Europe. I can’t even list it all. I stocked up on European sunscreen, German bath/body products, makeup that isn’t available in the US and fancy skincare. I’ve got to stick to a no-buy for the rest of the year now. I just have to. Because I really went overboard. I’ll share my haul with you guys if you promise not to shame me.

Since I traveled so much in August, I thought this would… Continue reading | 20 Comments

EauMG’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Niblings & Teens

Teen Gift Guide

 

HUG your auntie! My holiday gift guides are back! I’m not in the mood; it doesn’t feel very holiday-ish but I’m pushing through. This is an annual tradition on EauMG. Previously I referred to this guide as the “Holiday Gift Guide for Sweet Nieces and Teens” but I wanted to find a word that was more gender neutral or something I could use collectively. I have four nephews and once niece and another nephew on the way. I was told to use the word “nibling”, which… Continue reading | 8 Comments

The Lipstick League – week of 9.12.16

Question of the Week: Do you think it’s important that body wash and body lotion scents complement each other? Or match?

EauMG’s Answer: Personally, I like for my scented body products to complement each other. Since I test fragrances so much, I do use a lot of unscented products. But, as you can see from my Empties, I bathe too much. At least once a day I use scented bath/shower products and lotions.And I like for
