Every month or so I will put together some skincare/makeup goodies for my mom. She certainly doesn’t need to go shopping on her own! I have a lot of samples, face masks I buy a bundle of, products I have tried (but I have a million more waiting to be tested and these need to be used!!!), Birchbox samples, and products I will buy for the both of us to use together. This month I feel like is more than usual and I’m excited for her to try these new goodies out! 😍👏👏🌟
Yesterday I was given the most beautiful bridal shower by my loving friends. So much thought went into the party-every little detail had ‘Susanna’ on it! The brightness- especially the hot pink!! Gift bags for guests with little decoration details included with Korean face masks!!!! Chocolate mousse cake and eggs benedict…all my favorite! 🙂 Here are some of the pictures for you to enjoy! I ended up wearing the LWD I got from Express! 🙂 What a perfect occassion to wear it to!
My friend, Lisbeth, is an independent consultant for Arbonne which is a company that’s all about being green. Arbonne uses botanically based ingredients, and they state earth friendly has everything to do with who they are and how they choose to grow. I love products that are healthy to the world and that is pure and safe. If you go on their website they have a list of ingredients they use for their products and how it is beneficial to the skin. 🙂 Arbonne formulas are based on botanical skin care principles and formulated without Animal products or animal by-products, parabens, formaldehyde, PABA, mineral oil, petrolatum and phthalates toluene. Lisbeth sent R and I samples to test out knowing I love natural skincare products, and we couldn’t wait to test it out! 🙂
R and I found the Arbonne products to be lightweight and gentle on the skin. I love how quickly the product absorbs into my skin. My skin felt softer and moisturized almost immediately after applying it. (I really love the sample packs, because you can test out all the products in their skincare collection for a few days and see how your skin reacts to it!) I have sensitive skin so I’m always worried about an allergic reaction but all the products were great. I’m happy, because since the cooler weather, my skin has been quite dry. All the products R and I tried out were for the face, and it’s been looking smoother and firmer since trying Arbonne. I’ll definitely also be looking into their makeup line in the near future! 🙂

Some skin products and a lip tint gloss ordered from Club Clio! I’m excited to try the new toner, emulsion, and cream. Also, I tested out the Phytowash Bubble Peeling product when I went to their store and it looks very interesting to use. Mmmm supposed to get rid of your dead skin-yay!!! Couldn’t resist the lip tint- I enjoy most of Peripera’s lip products so I can’t wait to test it out! 🙂
Hello beauty lovers! I think My Beauty Diary is officially one of my top favorite brands for face masks. I tried plenty but the ingredients, size of the face mask, texture, and results are amazing. There are some masks that are so huge or sticky and I can’t fully enjoy the process of it. I look so funny with the mask on 🙂 but after I took if off my face was visibly brighter and definitely much more moisturized!! Those of you who read my blog posts regularly know I can’t stand stickiness, but this one was just fine. I was worried because comon it’s HONEY, but it was just fine and I wiped all the leftover residue on my neck and arms! This product was made in Taiwan. 🙂
Howdy doo!! It’s a beautiful Sunday and I’m about to go to my first and perhaps LAST CF class with R. Today is bring a friend day so R is bringing me..yay! After work started I haven’t been really been going to the gym regularly and I haven’t been to the Kickboxing class that I already paid for in MONTHS! Such a bad track record when it comes to exercising…
Anyhows more on how my CF class went later. This morning I wanted to share my eyebrow products. I already posted in the past about my favorite Anastasia eyebrow pencil and clear brow gel. Remember to get clear, because the colored gel may make your eyebrows look unnatural and too dark. I changed up my eyebrow routine a bit because the Brow Wiz isn’t cheap and I’ve been needing to refill it every 2-3 months! I added the Brow Powder Duo to my collection along with their brow brush number 26. I use the color caramel,because my hair is dyed and lighter. I’ve been using the Brow Wiz pencil to shape my eyebrows and the Brow Powder Duo to fill it in. It looks more natural and I love the color. There is nothing special about the brush so you can use whatever you normally use and once by accident I used a eyeshadow brush and it worked just fine (or even better!)
First product is the Quinoa Rich Body Milk lotion. Description: A rich body milk with quinoa extract that creates a creamy layer to give dry skin a softer, smoother texture. Quinoa, the Supergrain from the Inca Empire, is enriched with proteins, starch and minerals.
I love the light scent and it’s a nice big bottle to use. It’s not heavy but definitely helps the dry patches. Love that it’s not sticky oowhooo!!
Second product is the Lychee Essence Mist in a spray bottle for your hair. Description: A hair serum mist that contains lychee extract, and transforms damaged hair into a silky smooth texture. Shake well before use. Evenly spray an adequate amount on the entire hair.
Lovely product! I love looking for products for my hair because it’s so dry, frizzy, and damaged. I have a bunch of oils for the hair but I’m lazy when it comes to applying it on my hair because I don’t want my hands to be oily… This product is awesome because I just need to spray spray spray regardless of whether my hair is wet or dry. My hair is usually in knots and unmanageable, but this product definitely helps my tangles and frizzes!!! Plus it smells nice. 🙂
Love my new purchases!!
Halloween goodies for my classroom from Party City. Despicable Me pumpkin tattoos! Can’t wait to do this with my class! Have to paint our mini pumpkin yellow tomorrow first! 🙂 I got two cute headbands to alternate and wear everyday in October. I wore my spider one and the boys in my class loved it! 🙂 Got some tattoos as well – this year they won’t lose it like they do with their stickers.
Ray got a Captain America costume! He already has the t-shirt so he picked up some props. The socks are not pictured but they are over the knee socks with mini capes on the back. It is so cute! 🙂
Went to Ulta and get a mini, but expensive makeup haul. I love my Anastasia eyebrow pencil, but it runs out so quickly so I decided to try out their powder so I got the Caramel color and picked up an eyebrow brush as well. Picked up a Stila primer that is so cool!!! More about it later!! 🙂 Also, picked up a new mascara and I did try it out & it’s pretty awesome!!!
Birthday watch for my brother – he’s 21 today!!! 😀
Chocolates for the sweet! Got one for me and the rest for our parents to share. 🙂
Hahaha love this fuzzy warm hat I tried on at Century 21. Would’ve purchased it if it wasn’t $270!!!! Geez!!! 🙂
