Lara DiPaola replied to Maureen Sytsma's discussion 'Which holiday item are you excited to purchase?' in the group Makeup Mamas
"I comb the weekly ULTA add like a crazed woman. Also I'm a HUGE fan of E.L.F (four kids puts a crimp in my makeup budget). I love the jewel tones of the season. PLUS the sales. I snagged a great flat iron on the cheap last week."

Hi there and welcome from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time. Don't be too overwhelmed by MBC. The ladies are awesome here and sooo embracing. Hope you enjoy your stay :)
