March Boxy Charm!!

You have to know by now that this is my favorite day of the month. I mean, makeup has been delivered to my door!!! This months box was good and I’m so excited about it. From the sneak peeks I saw I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on the goodies.IMG_4243

So let’s jump in to the Bae-cation boxy charm box.

Let’s start out with the most exciting item which is the Pur cosmetics X Boxycharm eyeshadow palette. It is drop dead gorgeous. The peaches, the mattes, the shimmers, and my favorite summer color- a bright pop of blue. Retails 36$ and you can find it at Ulta or Purcosmetics.com. The colors are stunning and blend like a dream with major color payoff!                                        IMG_4250

Next a Mascara from Bellapierre Cosmetics. MSRP: 20$ This guy promises long lasting, volumizing mascara formulated to help create thicker and fuller lashes. After testing this one, it was a super disappointment. Not a huge deal since I wear false lashes but for the days I don’t… I will not be reaching for this at all.                                         IMG_4249

South Mane Beauty gave us Under Eye Gels for 10$ These make for a great easy mask without the clean up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed.                                                                                              IMG_4246

The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave us a Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set retailing at 23.15$ This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning smokey eye. The brushes are so soft and who doesn’t love getting new brushes?? I know I’m a total addict. After testing these guys out I do like them for packing on color but probably won’t be my number one go to brushes. Still very nice tho! IMG_4248

I was so excited to get this Blush from Pretty Vulgar. I adore their packaging with the vintage look. I know Boxycharm sent out two shades and even though I didn’t get the shade I was hoping for, the one I got is still really pretty. The blush runs for 26$ The color I received was called Prim Vixen and it is so insanely bright.. Must go in with the lightest of hand.                                                                     IMG_4247

If you added that up, that is just over 115$ worth of product for only 21$!!!! I love this box so much!!! Definitely sign up while there is no waitlist!

February Favorites!

Hey Lovely Friends! This month I dove in to some great products and I just have to share. February was a strange month here in the South because it went from being really warm to a little chilly… I do not enjoy this chilly weather. I’m hoping it warms up soon. So I didn’t get out of the house much. Doing your makeup with no place to go is still fun but not clearly as exciting haha!

Even through all this I still managed to find some fabulous products I couldn’t put down and here they are.

  1. Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara. I am Obsessed with this mascara!!!! It is pitch black and leaves my lashes so full and long. It is definitely my go to for those days that I don’t put lashes on. The brush defines my lashes and I really can’t say enough good things. If you haven’t tried it then what are you waiting for???Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.06.59 AMScreen Shot 2018-03-09 at 5.59.27 AM
  2. E.L.F. BB Cream SPF 20. This BB cream adds just the perfect touch of coverage and smooths out any redness. It is very inexpensive and gives spf coverage for the day. The BB cream is super blend-able and creamy. I reach for it everyday!
  3. Bad Habit Beauty “After” eye shadow collection palettes. These palettes are dupes for the Huda Beauty Palettes and OMG they are sooo creamy, pigmented, and build-able. And at only 10$ a pop… I mean come on. Ah-Mazing!
  4. Indian Healing Clay. Only 10$ and this jazz can do so many things! I have been using it for face masks and after only one use my pores were cleaner and smaller and my skin was incredibly silky smooth. It sells out quickly on the Hush app so keep your eyes peeled for it and get your hands on it as soon as you can!Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.28.38 AM
  5. Lastly is not a makeup item but I am obsessed. The Ultimate Classic Jogger from VS Pink. OMG so soft and comfortable. A must have in your wardrobe for lounge days or everyday if you are me!                                             Screen Shot 2018-03-09 at 6.23.57 AM

What were you loving last month??

Bad Habit Review- MUST TRY!

Hey friends! I know I have baby fever and I have lots of mommy posts prepped and ready but trust me I have not forgot about beauty and how much I love all things makeup!

If you have been with me a while you know that since becoming a mom I love finding amazing affordable makeup that performs high end but costs drug store. I know some people have expressed how they have a problem with companies making dupes of high end products but I love it, if it is done well. Bad Habit Beauty is a bomb.com company with whom I am obsessed with!!! You can purchase Bad Habit through the Hush app.

Wanna know how much I love Bad Habit?? I have purchased every item they have made!!!! Everything has been amazing quality and such a great option if you can’t afford or don’t want to spend 45$ on a palette. BHB makes dupes for many palettes like many of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes and Huda Beauty.

To the left is the newest collection from Bad Habit Beauty. It is a great dupe for the Huda Beauty Obsessions eyeshadow palettes which run 27$ a palette. The Bad Habit palettes run 10$ each or bundle all 4 palettes for 30$. It is really amazing that they can get such great quality product and fantastic packaging for such a low price.

The Hush app is a must for any beauty lover. They have so many amazing brands and some other brands I have never heard of, but I can confidently tell you that Bad Habit Beauty is a must!!!!

What I’m Packing in My Hospital Bag- baby #2

There are so many lists out there for what to pack in your bag for the hospital. I was really overwhelmed with my first baby. So on my last visit I simply asked him what I need to bring. He told me – Clothes to go home in and toiletries… THAT’S IT!!! Of course you might want to bring a few other things but these super long lists are ridiculous. You can pack all the comforts of home but if you want to be simple and not have a ton of stuff to bring home along with a baby then here is the simplest hospital packing list.

I have written this post before but wanted to update it as times change and all my friends are pregnant. So I will have the bare minimum and then a few extras you can add as you like.

  1. Plambag Oversized Canvas Duffle Bag– You have got to have a bag to put stuff in. I use a canvas/leather bag from Lucky Brand but unfortunately they don’t make them anymore that I could find. This Plambag is a great option and it’s not crazy expensive.
  2. You gotta have clothes to go home in. While you stay at the hospital you can wear the hospital gown. If you really want out of it after giving birth and you get that first shower then bring another outfit. With my first baby I brought a soft night gown and robe for at the hospital and then clothes to go home in. I will be going home in my favorite staples from victoria secret Pink. Oh and don’t forget some panties- skip the thong, get you some mom panties with room for large pads for those first couple weeks.
  3. Toiletries. You definitely need your toothbrush and toothpaste. You may also want to bring some travel size shampoo/conditioner, soap, skincare, and a few makeup items to make you feel normal again like tinted moisturizer and mascara.
  4. Lastly for yourself bring your camera, phone, and chargers. I suggest getting an extra long charger cord. iPhone Charger, Lightning Cable 3FT 6FT 10FT“>These Cords are my fav!!
  5. Alright the hospital provides everything you need for baby. Bring your breast pump if you have questions for the lactation consultant. From there your baby just needs an outfit to come home in and the car seat: Safety 1st Grow and Go 3-in-1 Convertible Car Seat . If it is cold bring a blanket.

That is all you really need. I’m sure all hospitals are different so make sure you talk to your doctor. My experience was awesome. I never was hungry, I was given undies, pads, tucks, pain medication, and ice packs. I literally didn’t need or want for anything.

Was there something you couldn’t live without? Let me know in the comments!!!
