Bath and Body Works 

The water collection is awesome. I love the body scrub , gel wash and lotion. It smells amazing, fresh, light and clean. While Bath and Body Works has the semi annual sale I stocked up on everything that they had for that collection, 75% off at the time. So worth the $4.13 for each item, normally when they are about $13.50-$18.50. 

Arctic Fox Ritual

Ritual is such a gorgeous burgundy color and you can use it on unbleached brown hair. Its also one of their more “work safe colors” Which is a plus. 

Book of earrings 

This little book of earrings have been really helpful with keeping all of my post earrings organized. This little book holds up to 48 pairs. I love that now i can just flip through and see all my pairs of earrings. 

H & M Jeans 

I love going to H & M for basic tops and pants. Most of my jeans are from H & M, hey for $10 you cant go wrong. I have a light,  dark blueblack and white pair. They tend to hold up well and I even wear them to work. I think next I’m going to get some of the $10 jean shorts as well. 

Daily burn

I started working out with the daily burn and so far i really like it. If you have a roku or a amazon fire you download the app and have it on your tv while working out. I really like that feature.

Medusa Jewelry– Finally I was able to switch out the post for my medusa. I went for the 8mm post and is the perfect length for me, not to tight or to big. Before I had a 10 or a 11mm post. I still have enough wiggle room for movement. I paid $9.99 for 4 posts. 
Lotus earrings– I was browsing through amazon, what else is new and stumbled on to these earrings. You get 4 different colors, silver, gold, rose gold & black for $6.99. I love how they look and are my favorite for earrings right now. 
Fitbit Versa lite – I updated my fitbit flex 2 and I am so happy that I did. I have really enjoyed the versa lite, especially the heart rate monitor for workouts and being able log your workouts, water on the watch. Plus I can check the time and see my step count on my wrist. 
I used up the rest of my Pacifica bb cream and was cures to try something new but still on the lines of a natural BB Cream. I picked up  Burt’s Bees BB Cream with SPF 15 in light & Physicians Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream SPF 30 in light. From what I can tell the Burts Bee is more neutral in color than Physicians Formula, more on the warmer side. Both work well for me since I am neutral with slightly warm undertones. Both apply really nice with a brush, I have yet to try with a sponge. 
OGX Bodifying + Bamboo Fiber-Full Sugar High Tousle Spray I really like how much volume this spray gives my hair and does not fall flat. A light hand is needed, at lest for my fine hair, when applying. I normally apply on damp hair and blow dry. I might also add a little volume powder too just for extra poof. 
In my April boxy Charm I received a Artist Couture – Diamond Glow Powder Its a loose Powder highlight and can be used on the eyes, lips, face and body. Its amazing! It gives you just enough shimmer. 
Pink recently had one of their 8 for $28 sales for underwear and I bought myself some more. I normally wait for a big sale like that to buy underwear from Pink.

Mariro Bascado Drying lotion

This last cycle of mine I had about 4-5 big fat zits on my face. Lovely. This made them disappear. This is my new best friend and all you need is a q-tip size do on the zit and some beauty sleep. Magic. 

Coco Cabona Cream 

Tropical island. Yum. Hydrating. Not much more to say, but smell it. Just don’t eat it. 

Yes To Dual Ended Mask Tool 

I was so happy to find this tool. It is so helpful with my skincare. The straight edge is to apply mask and the round edge helps lift peel masks. It’s also very easy to clean off and no more wasting product. Some masks do apply better then others and I will use my fingers for my nose and other harder areas. 

EcoTools Facial Cleansing Brush

I like to use this guy when take off my makeup at night. The bristles are soft enough that I can use daily without making my skin red or irritated. Its also very compact & travel friendly. I still use my battery operated facial spin brush, for shower time with the harder bristle head for deeper exfoliation. 

Litter Genie Plus Pail & So Phresh Odor-Lock Crystal Cat Litter

Im not sure how we have made it this long without the litter genie or using a non clay litter . For my two cats the genie holds up to two weeks of waste. Since we don’t use a clay litter anymore, it gives us a bit more room. I have yet to notice a smell coming from the genie. I empty it out every two weeks when I completely change the cat box. The refills last about 8 weeks or so. You can buy a 4 pack for about $20 and be set roughly for the whole year. Not bad in my opinion. Before we would use little doggie bags and throw them in the garbage. As for the crystal litter, it awesome. The tracking of litter is so minimal now. Occasionally there is a few crystals that get kicked out but nothing like before. The crystals also absorb the urine so there is less to scoop, which is also awesome. The bag does say that it can absorb liquid, waste and odors the box up to a month for 1 cat or two weeks if you have 2 cats. Like I said before I change it out completely every two weeks.

Far Cry New Dawn 

I have been slightly obsessed with this game since it came out . It takes place sometime after Far Cry 5 in the same town, but different storyline. Overall not a bad game. The husband has already finished it.


My 4 Favorite Blogging Apps

Boxy Charm

So I signup for a month to month subscription with boxy charm in late January and received both the January and February boxes around the sometime. Boxy Charm is roughly $21 a month, they have 3, 6, 12 months plans also. So far i have really enjoyed each item that I have received. In the January box I received one of the Tarte Limited Edition Rainforest of the Sea Highlight Which alone is $36. 

No Poreblem Primer

This primer is one of the items I received in my February Boxy charm, and I have been using it so much now. I really like how it applies and makes my makeup look. 

Medusa piercing 

I finally went and got my medusa piercing that I have been wanting for the longest time now and I’m so happy I finally did it! I have to wait until about mid march to be able to change it, I’m counting down the days. The longer bar that I have in, to help with healing and swelling, is so annoying. It catches on the bottom of my teeth sometimes when I’m trying to eat or drink. 

Silicon Wedding Rings

We finally went ahead and got some silicone wedding rings. This is something we have talked about before and felt this was better for our lifestyle. Nether one of us has to worry about losing or having something happening to our “nice” wedding rings. I just keep our “nice” rings in a safe place where if we choose to wear them we can. 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

I have finally found my go to foundation that works so well for me. Blends like a dream and is more on the dewy side. I don’t find the need to powder after applying and is long lasting. I would give a 5 star but I could do without the scent. It’s not bad but not terrible, it does fade over time. 

Crystal Water Bottle 

My mom bought her self and me one of those water bottles with the crystal that sits at the button of the bottle. It is the coolest thing ever! She picked out the fluorite crystal for me and her birthstone, amethyst.

January Favorites

I cant believe January went by already! Hope everyone is is having a good start to the new year! We are just going to jump right in to my favorites for the month of January.

January Favorites

Pacifica Glow Greens Beauty Powder

So pacifica came out with beauty powders, one for sleep, skin, probiotics and stress. Im not going to lie, when I saw that they were coming out with supplements, I was so happy and wanted to try the one for the skin. I am finishing up my 1st bottle of the Glow Greens and will be opening the a second one in a few days. You don’t even know your drinking greens! It has a lemon flavor and is so good. I drink this every night with my vitamins. 

UpSpring Reproductive Support 

For a while now I have been battling with some pretty bad hormonal cystic acne along my jaw and chin. No amount of exfoliating or deep cleaners has completely cleared it up even with my spin brush. I didn’t want to be on medication, so I found an alternative solution. So far, I’m on my third bottle and my skin has not had a flare up once. It’s so clear and good looking its unreal. Mind blowing, honestly! I do still get the occasional, what I call pop ups (tiny/small zits that are gone by the next day) but nothing like before where it would be weeks going into months where I would have a cystic zit. 
I mainly bought UpSpring Reproductive Support solely to try on the hormonal acne but it also has added benefits for reproductive health, and it also helps with female fertility and  libido. Shatavari helps with hormonal balance, Black cohosh supports increased fertility and pregnancy and Maca with  libido.

Overtone Vibrent Purple 

Well I went back to purple hair and used the overtone vibrant purple deep conditioner. It smells so good and minty. I always go back purple, there is just something about purple hair, its my favorite. 

Static Nails Glue

Im not sure what Staic Nails does with their nail glue but it is amazing. Their nails are great also but that nail glue is the shit. I also have use the glue with other glue on nail brands and it works just as well. Im talking, these nails aren’t going anywhere for 3 weeks. And did I mention the glue is only $4! I have tried other glues and after a day or two the nails pop off. Right now im trying to use up some of my other glue on nails from kiss and other brands that I have bought in the past before I buy more from Static Nails. But I will be ordering more from them for sure. 

New Glasses 

So I ordered some more glasses from Zenni Optical. I couldn’t decide between the the black or tortoiseshell cat eyes so I got both, and I’m so glad I did. I love the clear frames also! Not sure which ones are my favorites.

Static nails

These puppies stayed on for not 1 or 2 or even 3 weeks but 4! 4 weeks they stayed on. Holy. Fuck. They say you can reuse them but after I took them off i thought it was better to get rid of them. I must of used a little too much glue because there was quite a bit of glue under the nail. I bought these

Overtone

I bought the Plumberry Kit with the extreme pink and vibrant purple. I decided to put some of the extreme pink over the dusty pink color I had and holy pink! I mean pink. Barbie pink. Its been a little over a month and its fading very nicely. I think my favorite part of coloring your hair a fun color is the fade out. Basically Overtone is a conditioning treatment with color and extra-hydrating ingredients.

Urban Decay Heat

I bought the Urban Decay Heat palette during a black friday sale from ulta for 50% off. Normally $54 and I got it for $27. The colors are gorgeous colors and they blend so well. I can use this palette with no primer if I choose to. 

GlowSpin : Premium Facial Cleansing System

I have been loving this Spin Brush. This was another black friday sale from Vanity Planet. It came with 3 brush heads- daily cleansing facial brush, exfoliating facial brush, and silicone facial brush and 2 settings a lower speed for a gentle, everyday cleanse, or a higher speed for deeper exfoliation. My skin has been looking great for the past month since i have been using it.

November Favorites

November Favorites



Here are  some of the things I really enjoyed  and reached for a lot in the month of November.

Pacifica Face Lotion 

I picked up 2 lotions by Pacifia one is a overnight Wake Up Beautiful Mask and the other is Kale Luxe Oil-Free Cream. The Kale Luxe, is good for helping  improve appearance of healthy skin texture, tone and brightness. Its also good for acne prone skin.  I apply after doing my nightly face routine, of washing and toning. Then right before bed for  little extra hydration, I apply the Wake Up Beautiful Mask on. Boy, does my face feels so soft when I wake up. I am loving this combo so far for winter. I have also noticed that my foundation doesn’t cling to any dry patches that I might have. 

Morphe Eyeshadow Palettes 

Both the Jacklyn Hill Palette & 35M Boss Mood Artistry Palette are to die for. The colors are gorgeous and buttery. I have no need for primer when I use ether palette and the staying power is great. I don’t know which one is my favorite out of the two, it would have to be a tie. I almost got the Jacklyn Hill Vault Collection  instead of the Boss Mood Palette, but then I saw the color story of it in the store and decided for the price and how many shadows you get compared to the 4 and it’s almost the same color story. I thought it was a win win. 

Always Cold Club Coffee Mug

I finally got my hands on a coffee tumbler by Girrlscout. I just love it! I have a few more of her items that are in her shop. I can’t wait for our trip next month to use my Overnight Shit bag, which goes great with my Face Shit  makeup bag. 





 Soph x Revolution Highlighter Palette 

I was in the need for a highlighter palette. The Soph x Revolution Palette  gives me 8 different options to pick from. I love the pink and purple highlight the most out of this palette. They add just a little extra something.

Design.Me Quickie Dry Shampoo & Puff  Me Up Light

I really like their Quicke Me Light  Dry Shampoo. I picked up the light one for blondes and pastel hair because I have a light pinkish purple color at the moment. It works really well at soaking up any oil I might have in my hair and makes it look so fresh. Puff Me Up Light  is one of my favorites to use to add volume to my hair. A couple of puffs  in my hair and we have some big hair. 

Sally Hansen 7 In 1 Nail Treatment 

So I had acrylic nails on for about 3 months (had fills done in that time) and finally it got to the point that they were starting to lift a bit on a few nails. I figured it was time to say goodbye and let my nails breathe. Since then I have been putting the Complete Care 7 in 1 Nail Treatment Sally Hansen. They are looking so much better now, I apply nightly  before bed.

October- What I’m loving

October- What I’m loving



I thought I would share with you some of the items I have been enjoying for the month of  October!

Candles

I bought so many fall smelling candles from Bath and Body Works I can’t even begin to pick and choose which ones are my favorites but I do really liking Evening Hearth (can’t find on the web site), Autumn woods & Sweater Weather.

New shoes

Who doesn’t love new shoes because I know I do.  I got 2 new pairs of Champion Gusto from Payless when they had a BOGO sale. I picked the Grey jersey/ coral and Turquoise/black. In total with tax I only paid $39. Not bad for 2 pairs. I love the Turquoise pair, its such a fun color!

New phone

For the last few months now I have been wanting to upgrade my Iphone 7. Well we  finally did it! I upgraded to the new iPhone XS and picked the gold color and my husband picked out the space gray. I. LOVE. IT. The camera is awesome. Its a little odd not having a home button and keeps throwing me off but I’ll live.

Skincare & Haircare

For hair I have been reaching for Evo Salty Dog Salt Spray and Not Your Mothers Girl Powder Volumizing Hair Powder. I really like this combo together with Design.Me Hair Fab.Me which is a 18 in 1 leave in treatment. Hask Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo is a favorite dry shampoo of mine and will be buying a third bottle soon. It leaves little to none white residue when applying. Garnier Fructis Deconstructed Pixie Play has been a staple of mine for the last four years since I went pixie. It does not make your hair greasy, unless you use too much. It is a must for me.
Right now for skincare  I’m loving the aloe, herbs and rosewater facial spray from Mario Badescu. It smalls so good! I use this in the morning before I put any primer on for my makeup and after I take off all my makeup at night before I apply my moisturizer. I have been using to set my makeup too! Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers I like on days that I don’t really want to wear makeup but want to wear a little something.
