Latest and Greatest

November 30, 2011

TAGG’s here’s today with a few new borderline stalker obsessions. Check them out to test for yourself.


1. Canon Rebel. I jumped on the DSLR bandwagon on Black Friday when I scooped up the T3 version. Without stellar photog skills, I’m already in love. The quality and detail of the photos are outta this world, even with the auto function. Handy because who has time to read a manual? :) For nights out, I’m always with my faithful Canon Elph 300 (so tiny! Fits in my back pocket or clutch).

2. Luna Protein Bars. These have become my new on-the-go snack bars, breakfast bars… and just, I’m starving bars! Since I’m avoiding extra fiber (doctors orders), these 180-calorie, protein-packed bars (they have 12 grams!) in delish flavors like cookie dough and peanut butter/chocolate have quickly become necessities for my pantry and to toss-in-my-purse. They’re sooo good.

 3. BaubleBar necklace.  Sorry: this is such a tease because you can only get this BB necklace with earned points (through purchases or referrals), however I had to share because when I wear it, I’m bombarded with compliments (rough life, right? hah) and questions where to purchase. It’s BaubleBar, my online obsesh for quality (affordable) jewelry. In less than a year it seems like it’s exploded on the scene… every major mag has at least an item they covet each issue, and I agree! An awesome site for holiday gift giving and best of all, new customers get $10 off their first purchase! PS: check out its super handy ring sizer.

4. Cozy pj pants. Not the sexiest, but what average gal doesn’t lurrrrvvveee cozy pj pants?! While I have my some Victoria’s Secret and pricier pairs, I must show you my new cozies from Tarjay! Holla if you’ve been to their pajama/lingerie section lately… killing. it! I scooped up these cozy fleece pants with this fun pale grey print for a measly $10 (on sale this week!), and yes… have worn them three nights in a row. Don’t judge, it’s our little secret (they are so freaking comfy!).

5. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara. While I was a Maybelline Stiletto gal for a while, I’m a convert after stumbling across this at CVS. It really plumps and adds volume to my lashes without making them clumpy. Perk: it’s less than $7.

6. MAC Viva Glam VI lip glass. Even though the more neutral Viva Glam V still has a prime position in my purse cosmetics bag (often paired with Gaga lip glass; see my review), VI has this shimmery berry hue that adds a fun pop of color. I thank the MAC artist who put it on me for my Cleopatra Halloween look. Very grateful. If shimmer is not your thing, try the lipstick version. Almost universally flattering!

    Love the luna bars and congrats on the Canon Rebel :)

  • MJ

    Congratulations on the Canon Rebel. I got the exact same one and I absolutely love it! I also have that Mascara and it’s great for everyday wear.

  • Lia

    Great picks! Congrats on your camera! I’m holding out for the t3i….we’ll see if I ever get it! I need to try those luna bars, and I cannot believe those pajama pants were only 10$! I’m going to Target at lunch, hopefully they have them! I live in pajama pants and fuzzy socks in the winter time, is there anything better?

  • Tiffany

    Oh, those luna bars are delicious!! I used to eat them when I was breastfeeding, but I haven’t had one in a while… And cozy pjs, heck yeah, those are a necessity for this colder weather Florida’s been having!!

  • Sophia

    I joined the DSLR team a few months ago and couldn’t be happier. Such amazing pictures! Enjoy

  • Jules

    I would love to have a Rebel. That camera has been on my wish list forever! That lipglass from MAC looks pretty. I’ll have to check it out next time I visit the MAC counter.

    • Alyson

      if you’re considering it, take the plunge while it’s about $100 less than it is after the holidays. And, definitely check out the lip glass… shade would look great with your complexion!

  • Bonnie

    Camera! PJ pants! Lip gloss! Mascara!
    Fo sho.

    I’m hurt that you’ve moved on from Lash Stiletto. :( Haha. I think I have this mascara from a CVS deal but haven’t opened it because I’m still using Stiletto. BUT - I’ve noticed my last two tubes haven’t been working their magic. I don’t understand it. Or maybe it’s all in my head. The latter could be true.

    • Alyson

      lol, that’s how I felt too about the stiletto… wasn’t feeling as wow’ed by it as I had in previous tubes. Test out this one and let me know if you see a difference. I’d be curious! Or do one with each eye for our next skype call. haha.

  • qin

    awesome picks <3

  • Grace - Stripes & Sequins

    Love all of these things… especially the Rebel and the BaubleBar :)

  • Kirstin Marie

    Those pj pants are amazing and they look sooooo comfy. I’ve heard great things about the canon rebel, but I’m a nikon user/lover. :)

    • Alyson

      those PJ pants are the best, and still available for $10 online… hint, hint. :)

  • Laura Snell

    I feel like we are T3 sisters now :)

    • Alyson

      LOL, totally T3 sisters!!

  • Fashion By Alicia

    Love that necklace!! I need to be earning more credits. I need to jump on the DSLR bandwagon. Soon hopefully!!


    So jealous of your new Canon! I need a serious upgrade. I’m sure you love it. I have one too, but it’s time to move up to a more powerful body and lens. Enjoy!

    • Alyson

      your photos are stunning, v! from my perspective, looks like you have an excellent camera but can understand the desire. Now I just need to learn how to use it… and teach my husband, too!
