New Journey – New Business

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share this new adventure I am going on with you. As you probably know I am pregnant and I was doing weekly updates but the past few weeks have been incredibly difficult. Pregnancy is hard!! I have been so insanely sick and can barely eat which makes me super tired. It was gross and boring so I decided not to write about it. But yesterday I took a leap of faith and started my own business.maxresdefault

I had watched a girl on Instagram for a while talk casually about products she was using and loved and after months of consideration and research I decided that it was a journey I was ready for. Being a stay at home mom makes me a little crazy sometimes and sometimes I feel guilty. Its not an easy job but I still felt I should try and contribute to helping make some extra money in our house. So I have joined Arbonne. If you are like me and never heard of this it is because it is still relatively unknown in the US but it should be!Arbonne_1thumb-40ca67f12ddd4a6cbafba50201cae1d4

Arbonne is a science based company who believes in creating botanically based powerful and pure products. These products are the best you can get all while being free of GMO’s, parabens, soy, whey, gluten, animal testing, waste and so much more! I am truly blown away by how amazing this company is and how well the products work.Screen Shot 2018-09-19 at 10.00.26 AM

I of course will continue to keep you updated on what my favorite products are and my healthy, green journey. I wanted to write this post because I truly beleive in the values and products of the company and it needs to be shared!

PLEASE email me, message me, tweet me with any questions regarding nutrition and health which I have my masters degree in or questions about makeup and skincare which I have worked in for the past 10 years! IMG_0409

Huge News, Follow My Journey

This momma is so proud to announce that I AM PREGNANT! Friends I am so excited to share this exciting news. I know many people like to wait until the second trimester to share the news but I am not one of those people and I am just too excited!

Each friday I will be giving a weekly update about how I am feeling and what is going on. Things will include general pregnancy stuff, shopping, dr appointments, bump updates, and more!

So today I am 7 weeks pregnant. I have been feeling pretty good overall so far. With my son I had the most intense sense of smell and was so sick. I do have heartburn and slight nausea but no sickness so far. Loading the dishwasher makes me the most nauseous surprisingly. I have fallen into a cycle of waking up at about 2 am and not being able to go back to sleep for hours.. annoying!!

I’m not showing at all but I will begin to add bump pictures starting next week!

Stay tuned for more bump-dates and follow along with my journey this second round.

xoxo Erin

Berber’s Treat Review- Exfoliate and Moisture!

Hello friends! First I want to say I’m sorry for my absence last week. My son is teething his molars, had ear infections in both ears and just wasn’t feeling good so that was where I have been. Things are much better with my little one. Then this weekend I got ate up by mosquitoes. So I have welts all over my legs now, I’m desperately trying everything to get them to go away since I leave for my honeymoon in 5 days! So if you know of anything that will help please leave me comments! Now let’s get to this review. This post may contain affiliate links. I was sent these items for review purpose, all opinions and statements are my own.

I received the Berber’s Treat Black Eucalyptus Gel and the Kessa Exfoliating Glove. I was a little afraid that the combo of these two were going to irritate all the bug bites I previously told you about but I am so extremely surprised. My skin has been left feeling smooth and moisturized and surprisingly not itchy. I love that the Black Eucalyptus Gel is 100% natural, 3 ingredients only!

I have been searching for an awesome exfoliator and I can’t believe how much I love this one. The gel can be used on your face or use it with the mitt to exfoliate your body. Product InformationInstyle-BerbersTreat

And can you believe Kylie Minogue loves it too! You know it’s good when a pop star talks about it as a favorite product in a magazine!

Cute AF Collaboration

My fellow blogger and twitter friend, Kyles, reached out to me to do a collaboration. Now saying that we don’t live in the same city or state for that matter we had to get a little creative. So we chose a palette we both have and created looks. The palette we used was the Colourpop cute AF palette which is a super warm palette. Don’t forget to go check out and follow Kyles to see what she created!! you can find her : BLOG and TwitterIMG_3406 For this look I created I wanted something a little more simple than some of the looks I create because I had a ton of errands to run and had to take the baby to his checkup.

Out of the palette I layered and smoked colors over the lid starting with the lightest colors in the palette then gradually adding in darker colors but focusing them more on the outer corner. I used every matte shade except the yellow. Then to add a touch of shimmer and blend everything together I added the gold/orange shimmer in the bottom row.

I really love this palette but wish it had more dark tones in it. I find it almost a little difficult to create a whole look with the palette, It can be done but just not to what I love personally.

till next time!! Everyone who celebrates have a great Thanks Giving!!!!

An Autumn Tag

Hello friends!! Hope you had an amazing weekend and have been having a great weekend. My husband and I hosted a little gathering at our house and I cooked a bunch of snacks and we had a fire pit with some friends over. It was a good time. I think next weekend I will be having a little celebration for myself and go out to dinner with the family because as of Halloween, I will be a graduate from Grad school!!!

Any ways I got this tag from a twitter friend and fellow blogger so definitely check her out : HERE (:

1. The smell of pumpkin guts or rotting leaves?

HAHA Umm I am really not sure, I guess leaves because pumpkin smells best when it is sweet and baked lol

2. Sweat or salty pumpkin seeds?

Definitely have to go with Salty!

3. Store bought or pumpkin patch pumpkins?

Pumpkin patches are just fun and pretty. Being someone who has grown up around farms it is definitely the way to go. Pumpkin Patches all the way

 

4. Wool or knit sweater?

I guess I would have to go with knit. There aren’t a lot of wool sweaters where I am from and it is way to hot for wool where I live.

5. Halloween party or explore haunted places?

This is so hard to choose!!! I love scary and haunted stuff but I also love dressing up and doing the scaring so I really can’t decide. BOTH!!!

 

6. Apple pie or pumpkin pie?

I personally am not a big apple person so it would definitely be Pumpkin pie for me with extra whipped cream!!!

7. Still silent nights or rainy windblown nights?

Well where I live anytime we have storms our power goes out so I will take a still silent night… with the tv on lol

8. Witches or ghosts?

Definitely ghosts. I mean there are people who have the ability to talk to the dead right??

9. Raking leaves or climbing trees?

Climbing trees! Who in their right mind would pick a chore lol

10. Ouija boards or ghost stories around a campfire?

Ghost stories. I am not about to piss off the dead messing with a quija board. plus campfires mean hotdogs and s’mores!         Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.16.04 PM

11. October or November?

October! Like I said I love halloween and all the creepy, scary stuff!

12. Black cats or owls?

CATS! I am a total cat lady. Owls are cool and pretty but I am all about some kitty cats!

13. Fireplace or candle light?

Hmmm I like both.. If I had to pick one I suppose I would pick a fire place only if it was electric because I don’t want my whole house smelling like a camp fire. Otherwise I would pick candles.

14. Monster movies or classic novels?

Monster movies because I rarely have time to finish a movie let alone a book. Plus my husband is not into reading so we spend time together finding movies and watching.

15. Carve or paint pumpkins?

I have literally never painted a pumpkin so I would have to go with carving pumpkins. Its so classic and fun and the best part is ripping the guts out! hahaScreen Shot 2017-10-30 at 12.15.06 PM

 

Friends what are your answers? Let me know in the comments or fill the tag our yourself!

Colourpop Review

Lately I have been getting so much new makeup! I love it and I’m not sure where to even start so I will begin with all the colourpop newness that I have. First off I got the “I Think I Love You” palette.                                                Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 7.51.55 AM As you can see this palette is so stunning! It is perfect for creating everyday looks and includes some seriously stunning and pigmented shades. I absolutely live for a deep matte black and a shiny gold. There are great mattes in the palette for a perfect base and all the metallics add the perfect punch to any look! And only 16$ colourpop is a non brainer for the girl on a budget.

Next up I tried out their new brow pencils. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.05.30 AMIt is much like the original ABH auto pencil. Very thin tip with a nice spoolie on the other side. It is very creamy and the product is smooth. I don’t think it will replace my ABH dipbrow any time soon but this is a nice pencil to have!

Lastly my mom gave me this lippie. Screen Shot 2017-10-20 at 8.15.41 AM This is an ultra satin lip in the shade “First of All”. It is a rich raspberry shade and I love it! My mom typically only wears nudes so I get really excited when she gets bright colors because I know they will be mine! And this color is awesome, right up my ally.

Alright friends if you haven’t colourpop yet what are you waiting for?? The prices are so affordable and the products are seriously fantastic! A+ from me!!

xoxo Erin
