I've been diligently collecting my trash so it's time for another empties post!

-Korres Castanea Arcadia Night Cream :) OMG HOLY GRAIL! I reviewed this recently and have been using it every day for about 3 months. My skin is so supple when I wake up and it really helped me avoid dry flaky skin during winter time.

-fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream :) I actually gave this to my mom to use and she really liked it! She said it was refreshing and the gel texture was unique!

Prescription Sunglasses with GlassesShop.com

Having bad eyesight is pretty annoying sometimes, especially in the summer time when I want to just throw on a pair of sunglasses. I end up having to put in contacts first any time I want to wear sunglasses. I've wanted prescription sunglasses for a while now and am so glad I got the chance to test out a pair from GlassesShop.com.

I find that I'm always scraping by in my optical insurance. Between new glasses and contacts, I end up never having enough insurance room left over to get prescription sunglasses. Since they are usually at least $200, I haven't made the splurge. But these ones are easy on the wallets coming in at only around $35 including lenses!

However, I'm determined to get back on track and use up these six products by Summer!
