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.

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.

Thanks for reading!

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

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!

Things I’m Loving Right NowThings I’m Loving Right Now

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.

 

 

Things I’m Loving Right Now

Tv- Into the Badlands

My husband and I have recently started watching Into the badlands. Honestly we are kinda obsessed with it. We watched all of season 1 and got caught up with season 2 which is still airing right now on Sundays. Think of it as a modern Game of Thrones, which we can not wait for it to come back.

Youtube- Channels I’m watching

Lately I have been back into into watching YouTube videos, especially Tati, Gabby, Bunny, Sara Nourse and Jenna Marbles.  Yes I know, what a diverse mix of people. These are people that i have been watching for years now. I started watching Tati about 5-6 and she’s been on YouTube for 7. Im really liking the direction she’s taking her channel.

I am also thinking of starting my own channel soon. Right now I’m looking for some good lighting that is budget friendly.

Affirmation cards

The Miracle Now affirmation cards are ones that I have been reaching for quite a lot lately. I just love the sayings and colors that are on the cards. When I first bought them I wasn’t to sure about them but now I’m pretty happy I did.

My Favorite Tarot & Oracle Decks

Happy planner

I love Happy Planner. I can’t wait to use my 2 new planners in July. Right now I’m using a mini for home/budget, two classics for wellness/memory planning and social media. A few weeks ago I bought some pineapple papers clips and stickers that go great with the new pineapple mini that I will be starting next month.

Books

Some of the books I’m reading at the moment are Big Magic, Love your Lady Landscape, Total Cat Mojo, Lunar Abundance and Detox Judgment. I bounce around alot depending on my mood.

7 Things I’m Loving Right Now

 

1. New Hair Color

What more can I say? I love this color. I used Cosmic Sunshine, Porange, Sunset Orange and Electric Paradise. All from Arctic Fox. I just mixed until I liked the color.  I plan on putting Electric Paradise over it once it starts fading badly.

2. New Furniture

Earlier this week we got our taxes, we went and bought a new coffee table, sofa & loveseat  and kitchen table and chairs set. The couches are so comfy and I love how the kitchen table and chairs look in our kitchen.

3. Candles

I recently went to Bath and Bodyworks  and picked up two new of single wick candles YUZU with Sugared Lemons, Mandarin, Dewy Waterfruits & LILAC with Lilac, Peony Petals, Lush Green Grass. Smells so good. I need to get more.

4. Shampoo and Conditioner

Love Beauty and Planet‘s Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower will make you think you are on a tropical island. No Joke. I did not want to leave the shower. Can you make a candle please?  They may not be organic but they do claim they  are vegan, cruelty-free, paraben- and sulfate-free, and enriched with organic coconut oil in place of silicones.

5. Tv

My husband  and I have started watching a show together called The Expanse. This is what it’s about.

“Hundreds of years in the future, things are different than what we are used to after humans have colonized the solar system and Mars has become an independent military power. Rising tensions between Earth and Mars have put them on the brink of war. Against this backdrop, a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain come together to investigate the case of a missing young woman. The investigation leads them on a race across the solar system that could expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.” 

So far its really good and we are already finishing season 2 and I think season 3 will be out sometime soon.

6. Weather

Here in Wisconsin the weather can change multiple times in one day. Lately we have some nice sunny days that are in the 30-40’s with SUN!! On Tuesday we had 50 degree weather and we had the windows opened for a short time for some fresh air. It was so nice.

7. New Shop Items

I am super excited about the new items that will be available  in my etsy. I hope to have them added with in the week. I will have readings and digital prints. I might even have some artwork added as well. Jewelry will be added more towards the end of the month going into April.

 

 

5 Things I’m Loving Right Now

I hope everyone is had a great week, I know I did. We had some warmish weather here in south eastern Wisconsin, meaning 30-50 degrees with rain.  Which was so nice compared to the 20 or colder temperatures.  But besides the weather here are the 5 things im loving right now.

1. Essential Oil Sleep Blend

I have been loving my essential oil sleep blend that I made a awhile back. In this blend I have orange, lavender, pomegranate and chamomile. Lavender is a great sleep aid orange can help ease anxiety, pomegranate is one of my favorite smells and chamomile for calming.  I love how orange and lavender smell together, it is one of my favorite mixes.

2. Sea Salt Spray

I found this sea salt spray called Salty Dog by EVO on amazon and heard some people on Instagram really liking it. So I thought i would give it a try. So far I really like it. It doesn’t leave your hair dry feeling, as long you don’t put too much in and it smells good. I’m not even sure how to describe it.

3. The Ultimate Guide

The ultimate guide to tarot by Liz dean. This is a great book for reading tarot, I find it very useful and helpful. There are a few tarot spreads and tips to help you read tarot better.

4. The Path

Last week I finished up Season 2 of The 12 monkeys on Hulu and now I started season 3 of The Path, also on Hulu. It was a show I wasn’t sure that I would like at first, but after a few episodes I was so into it. I just find this show to be so fascinating. Right now I’m on episode 3 or 4 and it’s really good so far.

5. Heel Genius by Soap and Glory

Heel Genius by Soap and Glory is great! I use this quite often during the week for my feet. I put this on at bedtime and let it do its magic. By morning my feet feel so soft. Sometimes I will use it on my hands too if they are super dry.things im loving right now
