Recently I checked out an app called Tophatter. It's a bidding site. It operates very simply and I thought it was cute. You can even chat with your fellow bidders. A large group of us were gathered for Urban Decay & Smashbox cosmetics. Now I'm plenty old enough to know all about buyer beware, but this was crazy. The bidding started to get out of hand & go way over retail price. So, quite a few of us spoke out & our ability to comment was abruptly silenced. The worst part is, the cosmetics they were selling weren't even current. I'm just really disgusted with the way it was handled. Any time you buy an item online, decide beforehand what your maximum bid is and find out how much the product currently sells for. I watched silently (forcibly silenced) as women paid more than retail for cosmetics that had been on clearance a year ago. Buyer beware!

Grove Square makes these French Vanilla cappuccino K-cups that are less expensive than other brands. I found them at Wal-Mart. I love a French Vanilla cappuccino from the gas station, so I was excited to try these K-cups out.
The taste is somewhat similar. It's not as flavorful or smooth. It certainly doesn't have that delicious fullness to it that the gas station cappuccinos have.
Basically, it's hot chocolate. It is tasty though. After trying this brand, I'm really willing now to plunk down extra cash and try the Gevalia cappuccino K-cups.
Have you tried these? What did you think?

Go to Paula's Choice right now and buy this. Click on Paula's Choice and it will take you right to the product line. There's a liquid as well as a gel. YOU NEED THIS.
What is it? It's a 2% BHA liquid (or gel) that gently exfoliates your skin. It reduces redness, reduces the appearance of pores and it also reduces acne breakouts. It leaves your skin looking brighter and reduces the appearance of wrinkles as well!
I saw results OVERNIGHT. I am not making that up. I received a full sized bottle thanks to BzzAgent, who allows me to try some incredibly great products (and some stinkers). Thankfully, this is the best skin care product I have ever used. You put a little on a cotton ball and apply to a clean face. Now swish that cotton ball over your neck & chest area, as well as the backs of your hands. Follow up with a little moisturizer on your face. Wake up in the morning and you look marvelous! My pores were gone. Where were those little bumps that are always hanging around the bottom of my lip line? With continued use, my skin looks brighter. My dark spots are still there, maybe not as dark. I love that my pores are GONE. They were nasty and I don't miss them! Instructions say to use it 1-2 times a day and I did find that this was too drying for my skin, so I scaled it back to once at night. Make sure you use a moisturizer afterwards because this can be drying.
I use this on my rough knees, on my heels, on my elbows. My kids use it for redness and acne breakouts. It is incredible how fast (1-2 days, I'm serious) the breakouts go away. For the price, you just can't beat it. It's effective, does what it says it's going to do and a whole lot more. It seems I'm always finding new uses for this.
I've always loved reading Paula's books - Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me! - but now I am hooked on her skin care and am looking forward to trying more!
Best part of all about Paula's Choice? Head on over there and score samples! That's right - you can purchase samples and deluxe samples of just about every product she creates. That, dear readers, is what a real company does when they have nothing bad to hide!
I shall leave you now with the info from Paula's website:
