Carolyn Braden's Geek Chic Winter 2013

Carolyn Braden: Adam Levine 222 and Kmart

I am pretty impressed with Kmart's attempt to up sales with more designer collaborations. My husband loves henley style shirts. I showed him Adam Levine's 222 clothing line at Kmart and he was game. We went to Kmart for the first time in a long while and walked out with 2 Levine shirts. He liked the jeans too but probably has like 50 pairs already so he will wait on those.

My only complaint is about the Kmart store in general. It will never compete with the likes of Target if they don't start a major makeover of the store. It just looked old and tired. I loved Kmart as a kid (hello cherry Icee!) so they must do something more if they want to get their brand back. 

While I was there I picked up an ear cuff and earrings from the Nicki Minaj line. She had some smart and cool stuff in her line that is worth checking out.

Carolyn Braden: Nexcare Acne Patch

Why oh why am I just now using Nexcare Acne Patch?!

This product is a miracle for my skin. I (ug!!) still get pimples and recently had a skin disaster. My face seemed to think I was a 13 year old for about a month. It was mostly my fault due to trying some new face lotions and cleansers. Luckily the breakouts could be covered with my Makeup Forever Velvet Skin foundation and Bare Minerals. Covering up though was taking forever and rushing to school is not a great way to start my day. 

I did much searching online knowing there was something that would help and I found it. These patches help pimples heal without scabbing. They also have helped me get rid of a horrible painful red spot in 2 days or less. 

I order them on because unfortunately I can't find them at local stores. I need to buy stock in this product because if word spreads even more about them, they'll be purchased by every person who suffers from bumpy skin. 

I place a dot on a pimple at night and by morning, my spot is less red and much flatter. Everyone's skin is a little different so it may not be a miracle for you but it's worth a try.
