Bumpdate!

Hello friends! Just got home from my doctor appointment. I am 30 weeks and 5 days. I am so ready to be not pregnant anymore! Haha I’ve reached the point of when I drop something it stays there, I don’t tie shoes, and I need a chair next to the stove so I can take breather breaks. I’m so exhausted but don’t get me wrong I am so excited. I want baby P to be here so I can see her sweet face and love and cuddle her.

I want to be able to workout and get back in shape. I want to know where we are moving and move so I can decorate and organize the kids rooms and the whole house. It is just such a big year for us and I want to jump head first!

This pregnancy has been difficult but also easy. I have been very sick and my heartburn has gotten so much worse. I start coughing at night to where I pee and almost throw up and leave the bed bc I know my husband needs sleep. But only about 8 weeks left. I keep telling myself I can do it. It’ll go by quick 🤞🏼

Boxy and Chill: January 2019

Hey hey!! How are we all doing today? Are you rocking this New Years butt? My health challenge is going well! Today starts week 2 of it.

Well let me get to business. Here is what I received this month. This months box is definitely lack luster in my opinion. I was just not a fan.

First up I got the Briogeo Roscaro milk leave-in conditioning spray MSRP – 12$. I have gotten this product before and as most of you know I hate getting most hair products. Something has to be beyond mind blowing for me to get excited about hair.

Next I received the OFRA Long lasting liquid lipstick in the shade Miami fever MSRP- 20$. I do love liquid lipsticks and I’m excited to try out ofras formula. The shade is not one I would normally select for myself but I’m ready to try something different. The shade is like a brown/burnt red.

Up next I got the Tarte rain forest of the sea highlighting eyeshadow palette vol 3. MSRP- 36$. To be honest I think this would be a total waste of money and I would never have purchased this if I didn’t get it in my box. It’s literally all highlight shades but for your eyes… I will definitely try this on my cheeks and hopefully get more use out of it.

Next is the Tatcha luminous dewy skin masks. MSRP- 24$. I know tatcha is an awesome brand but I’m still undecided if I will be trying it or not. I have such an amazing skincare routine that is all natural. I may just give these to my mom or a friend.

Lastly I received the Billion Dollar Brows universal brow pencil MSRP-18$. This is actually what I’m most (only thing I’m) excited for. The pencil is actually really creamy and smooth and blends nicely. Something had to be awesome in the box!

I’m really hoping the next box will be bomb because this one is not exciting at all. It is still a very great deal but I won’t continue to be a charmer if I don’t like the boxes.

Till next time friends!

New Year, New Me?!

Such a cheesy saying I know. But a new year typically marks the start of changes we want to make. Whether we want to be more confident, thinner, more fit, less debt.. and so on. Today I am 28w4d pregnant. Fully in my third trimester and ready for everything this year is going to bring me.

Today I started the 30 days to healthy living (30dhl) challenge and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I plan on sharing a little more of my pregnancy journey as well as my fitness and nutrition journey. I know this will be a huge year.

I wanted to explain the 30dhl a little bit because I realized many people had the wrong idea of what it is. First I would like to mention I have been studying health/nutrition for many years and have my master’s in public health. These aren’t just opinions, I will be stating facts. The program is not a lose weight quick fad diet, tho you can lose weight. You don’t have to work out tho physical activity will help you reach results and is always a good idea for your heart health. This program focus on detoxifying your body and teaching you how to FUEL your body with proper nutrition. Using Arbonnes products just makes it so much easier bc you only have to worry about one healthy meal a day and use the shakes to provide all the nutrition you need for the other 2 meals.

It seriously couldn’t be easier to be healthy. And as a pregnant lady I can feel so good about getting all the protein and nutrients and vitamins I need with little to no effort!

I feel the need to share this info because it seriously changes lives! Balances sugar with no spikes, no feeling hungry or depriving yourself through the day, just pure, beneficial nutrition.

If you have any questions please let me know! I get so excited about this stuff and I am so focused on helping people get healthier.

Happy New Year Babes!

Hey everyone! I hope everyone had a fun, safe new year. It was my husbands birthday yesterday so we made lots of food and hung out. Simple but that seems to be the life with kids and being prego.

I’m currently 28 weeks pregnant and I can not wait for this to be over. I feel bad saying that because there are so many women who would love to be pregnant but this has been a rough one for me.

Any ways, it’s a new year and for some reason we take that as a chance to set new goals and make changes. Even tho we literally can take those steps anytime. What are your resolutions for 2018? Here are mine:

  • Survive the last couple months of this pregnancy and delivery a happy, healthy baby.
  • Focus on my health. Nutrition will be huge for me and I’ve already started this but I will be getting more intense on this point.
  • Working out WILL be a priority. I feel I let taking care of everyone else take up so much time that I neglect myself.
  • I need to learn to love my body and self. Post baby bodies are not what Victoria secret models get because most of us do not have cooks, trainers, and nannies to take care of everything. I know it will take time but I will reach a place where I’m not crying in fitting rooms, hating how I look.
  • Focus on my business and my blog and post on a better schedule
  • Lastly it is always a focus of mine to be positive and spread good vibes. Patience is key. Life is hard and we shouldn’t make it meaner and harder than it already is.

2019 is going to be a huge year. I will be having a baby, my son will be a big brother, we will be moving, selling our house and buying a new one and my husband will start a new job.

I pray only the best for 2019 for all of us 💚

BoxyLuxe Dec Sea-Sun!

Guess what day it is my friends?! Today I got my Boxyluxe delivered! Last month was a bit aggravating to me bc my box came super late and it was just frustrating. But this month I will not get pissed because I actually got a tracking/shipment email and it arrived at a decent time!

Have you signed up for Boxyluxe or boxycharm? Charm comes every month and luxe comes every 3 months now. It is a little guilty pleasure of mine. I get excited to see what the months box brings and if I’ll use it or not. I have a feeling this will be a good box so let’s jump in!

First I got the Luxie rose gold complete face brush set. MSRP – 65$ These brushes are soo cute and super soft. I can’t wait to put these to the test!

Next I received the Spongelle body wash infused buffer. MSRP – 20$. These sponges are so convenient with body wash infused in the buffer, which exfoliates at the same time. I will be finding this guy a new home since Arbonne is all natural and is good for my skin. I don’t want to use anything else!

I received the Elemis pro collagen marine cream. MSRP – 89$. I will also be giving this cream away since I use the best skincare available for my skin and it’s natural and not chemical filled. But this cream has lots of great claims!

Then I received the Violet Voss Pro HG palette. MSRP – 45$. This palette is so beautiful and pigmented neutral palette. They are silky smooth and blend like a dream.

I also got another palette from Suva Beauty, the protégé palette. MSRP- 34$. It contains 6 highly pigmented shadows and 2 beautiful highlighters!

From Tarte I received a glitter lip paint. MSRP- 20$ This lippie is soo pretty!! I can not wait to give it a go on my lips! Also with that lippie I got the Grande Cosmetics grandemascara. MSRP- 25$. I can’t believe it is that expensive. I have received a few things from this brand now. I’m not impressed and the packaging feels sooo light and cheap.

Up next I got the Pretty Vulgar the powder room translucent setting powder. MSRP- 32$. Pretty Vulgar always kills it with packaging. The component is so stunning! I can’t wait to give this a try and see how it compares to my favorite Arbonne setting powder.

Lastly we also go a Crimes if Beauty wristlet and portable charger. MSRP- 22$. Wristlet is shown previously is super cute and I can’t wait to try out this portable charger!!

What do you guys think?? I’m pretty excited about it all and think I got a great value! Stay tuned with me on Instagram to see how things worked out!

October Boxycharm 🍂

Hello friends! Who is ready for the holidays? I am so excited and love Halloween but I am even more excited for thanksgiving and Christmas!!! We travel for the holidays and it always makes me excited!

Anywho, what did we think about this months boxycharm? This was a great box but I think I’m getting a little bored with it. Is it just me?? This month I received a Kat Von d liquid lip, makeup removing balm, a Pur cosmetics face palette, an it cosmetic mascara and a lace face mask. All the products were great but I feel so uninspired.

It is definitely worth the money. You get great products but let’s be honest, are we not drowning in liquid lipsticks that are in shades we don’t love? And eyeshadow palettes that are lack luster except when we do happen to get a Pur palette? And me personally I hate getting face masks. I never use them with the exception of this one just so it’s not wasted.

Hopefully next month will inspire me but for now I will be waiting and hopeful. I love my boxycharm posts but I’m not sure they are here to stay!

April 2018: Hits and Misses

Can Y’all believe it’s already May!?!?! I can’t and that means in just 25 days I will be on my Honeymoon!! I seriously can not wait and I’m sure that isn’t obvious haha. I have a few posts thought up for honeymoon related things and we are hoping to come back pregnant! Then I will have tons of post ideas ready to go! Okay enough blabbing, let’s jump into what I loved this month.

HITS

  • Herbal Essences Sheer Moisture Cucumber & Green Tea Foam Conditioner. Woof what a mouth full!! Anyways I have been seriously loving this foam conditioner. I thought I would hate it, especially with my long, thick hair. It didn’t leave my hair feeling slick like a normal conditioner but I still was able to get a brush through it and my hair wasn’t ever greasy. I really loved the results and my husband loved the smell.                                                                                                        Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.20.16 PM
  • Bad Habit Eyeshadow Palettes. Honestly they are all amazing. So richly pigmented and blend like a dream. And you can not beat the affordability. I would recommend these to anyone wanting amazing color payoff without a hefty price tag or if you just want a bomb palette. I can’t wait to see what else comes from this brand. Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.18.43 PM
  • The Balm Mary Lou Manizer highlighter. Sometimes when you gather and collect makeup like I do you tend to forget about old favorites. I rediscovered this beauty and even put it in a pile to be packed for my honeymoon.Screen Shot 2018-05-01 at 12.17.18 PM
  • Lastly I have be Obsessed with the BH Cosmetics Festival palette. I know I’ve talked about this before but the colors and the color payoff are so amazing. Such a great palette!                                                                                                    IMG_4852

MISSES

  • Just Nutritive Self Tanner. Let me start off saying this is not a total miss. I actually love how easy this is to use and the color that develops. But because it goes on clear you can not see what areas you have missed which leaves it streaky. Also I waited hours after applying to allow dry time and after putting my watch back on even a day later, I have a white strap around my wrist from the watch.
  • Spiral Twisters.. I just don’t understand how these work for girls with straight hair. Maybe because my hair is very thick and heavy they don’t work? My best friend loves them but I find that they just stretch out and my hair slips out of the pony tail very quickly.

 

That’s it for today! Leave me comments about what you are loving!

xoxo Erin
