April Favorites

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.

9 Holy Grail Skin Care Favorites Of 2018

I wanted to make a list of items that I really enjoyed and repurchased thought out 2018. I feel that I have a good skin care routine now and I have my cystic acne under control with the help of this supplement. All of these products work really well for me and my skin. Also none of them break the bank.

Alba Acnedote Deep Pore Wash I really like using this to deep clean my face once a week when I use the exfoliating brush head on my facial brush. I bought the spin brush during black Friday sale.

Yes to Cucumbers Hypoallergenic Facial Wipes These do a great job of taking off any makeup that i might have on and they leave your face feeling clean. Honestly any of their wipes work well, but the cucumber wipes are my favorite scent.

Yes To Cucumber Micellar Water I like to use this for heavy eye makeup, eyeshadow, eyeliner or lash glue that I might have on. It does a good job of removing everything and cleaning my eyes. Again any of their Micellar water works, I just love the cucumber scent.

Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay I like to use this once a week to really get in the pores of my skin. As the clay dries it sucks all of the nasty junk out of your pores, think of it as a vacuum. Just make sure to moisturize after really well since it can be very drying.

MARIO BADESCU Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater I love this spray. I”ll admit i went through the first bottle a little too quickly because I keep spring myself with it. I like to use this after washing my face and right before applying my moisturizer. The smell is divine.

Pacifica Wake Up Beautiful Mask This mask is my last step in my skin care routine. I have been using this since fall now and it does a great job with the couple of dry patches that I have on my face. It’s very hydrating and smells amazing.

Pacifica Sea Foam Complete Face Wash I use this wash daily. It has coconut water which is a natural toner, skin balancer and cleanser. The sea algae extract, helps with moisture content and brightness. 

Pacifica Beauty Kale Lux Oil-Free Multi Cream I use this every night after washing my face and using the rosewater spray. Not a lot of people like the smell of it but honestly I like the smell. It is great for acne. After i run out i will most likely keep using it even though I seem to have my cystic acne under control by using this supplement.

FORMULA 10.0.6 Keep Your Cool Mask I use this mask whenever I have a breakout. Which consists of maybe one or two very tiny zits that appear around the time of my period. This mask will help with redness and shrink the zits.

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.
