I’m a major fan and follower of Jennine Jacob of The Coveted, and when she started Eat Sleep Denim – a blog dedicated to my favorite thing of all time – denim – I of course started to become a regular visitor.

In December the blog hosted a fantastic giveaway in partner w/ Shopbop.com and MiH jeans seeking 70s style inspiration. To enter to win a pair of MiH jeans, they asked that you upload a photo of what screams 70s style to you on their Facebook page.

I had just uploaded a bunch of old pics of my parents on my laptop for their anniversary gift a few months before, so I automatically sifted through the beautiful pics and chose this one of my mom:

“Isn’t she a total Betty?” 😉

Turns out I wasn’t the only one totally inspired by her style – because I won!!

I got my jeans in a few weeks back and just LOVE them! Perfect fit, perfect length and perfect for spring time!

You know I’m awful w/ pics of myself… but here’s a few to share my super cute new MiH jeans! Thanks Mom! 🙂

I’m not a huge sucker for name brand cosmetics. I covet them, but cringe at the hefty price tags for a blush that I can easily get at Big Lots for $2.50.

However – I must say that Benefit cosmetics is REALLY sucking me in and I just love them. It all started with the lip plump that I got as a gift when working at the SF Magazine. Then from there, I was introduced to the moon beam and high beam products by my friends followed by late night viewings of their latest products on QVC. They just HOOK me in!!

I went to their brow bar the other evening for a touch up on my mangy brows and of course didn’t leave with just the wax. I had to get a new lip plump and tried their ‘Stay don’t Stray‘ primer for my eye makeup – LOVE THEM!!

Today on one of my favorite blogs, Fantabulously Frugal, I saw that the cosmetics company has a promotion for a free full size Pocket Pal tint/gloss with a $60 purchase. Just use the code ‘PALSTYLE’ at checkout until october 24th.  Since I had my eyes on a few other goodies at the counter the other night, I decided to get them so I can get my freebie on!! LOVE freebies!!

Can’t wait for my Brow’s a Go-Go, They’re Real Mascara and  Ohh la lift to come in!! YAY splurge of the day! Check out these pics from the Benefit blog post about the They’re Real Mascara:

If you stop by their counter, grab one of their holiday pamphlets. It is the cutest thing!!
