Boxycharm After Glow: Feb 2019

Hey friends! It’s that time again! I just got my boxy box in and I wanna unbox it with you!!

First I got a Too Faced Better than sex mascara. This mascara is amazing!! I have loved it for years and I’m so glad to have a fresh one. Retails for 24$

Next I got the Pretty Vulgar shimmering swan highlight. This highlight gives a natural, beautiful glow to the face but can be built up. It’s so pretty! Retail is 32$

Up next everyone got the Touch In Sol no poreblem primer. This primer is so soft and silky and blurs any skin issues you may have. Retails for 18$

I also received the Farmacy Clean Bee ultra gentle facial cleanser. This cleanser is formulated with naturally derived ingredients and soothe and hydrate skin while deep cleaning the skin. Retails for 22$

Lastly I received a Trestique prime and glaze lip crayon. This lip duo features a primer on one end and a shiny color glaze on the other. I’m excited to try this out since I don’t do shiny lips often. Retails for 25$

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.

Ulta Haul!!

I have been going a little crazy shopping lately.. my excuse is my birthday. That works right? Anyways if you haven’t seen my SheIn haul check it out here What Iā€™m Packing For a Caribbean Honeymoon. I got tons of great stuff for so little money! But now it’s time to jump in to what I got at Ulta!IMG_4847

First I had to get my hands on the BH Weekend Festival Palette ( 18$ ). It has 20 vibrant and insanely pigment rich colors. I do wish it had one matte light pale color to use as a base but other than that there are so many looks to be made!! I can’t wait to dive in to it! IMG_4852Next up I got a kit from Lorac called the Sun Kissed Glow Collection ( 34$ ). It includes a bronzer, blush, and highlighter. I thought this was an amazing deal. I really love Lorac’s products. I feel like they don’t get enough recognition but I own practically the whole collection.. Just so good!!! IMG_4850IMG_4851

I picked up some Ardell Items because they were on sale and I can always use spare lashes and glue. So I got a duo pack of wispies and the Duo brush-on dark adhesive ( both were 3.59$ ). They always look good, stay all day, and don’t look too crazy.

I lastly picked up two items based on Youtuber recommendations. I got the essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder ( 4.99$ ) and the NYX Pigment Primer ( 6.49$ ). I will let you know what I think. So far I have tried the brighten powder and I do enjoy it.

So I did get a free gift with spending so much which was awesome. It was a makeup bag filled with lipsticks! I got to choose from nudes or bright colors and of course I chose bright! IMG_4849From left to right I have a lipstick queen, nyx velvet matte, e.l.f., maybelline superstay matte, makeup revolution, and models own. And below are swatches in the same order from the bottom.IMG_4848

That is it for this haul friends! As always leave me what you are loving in the comments so I can check it out!

Ulta and Target Haul

I have done a little bit of shopping with my mom in town this past weekend. Here is what I got! IMG_1972First off I’m sorry about the photo quality, my flash wasn’t working properly. Any who! I absolutely love Target, what girl doesn’t? I can’t pass up the 1,3,5$ dollar section in the front of the store which is where I got this super cute note pad for notes and lists. If you know me, you know I love making lists! While at Target I also picked up the elf brow cream which works really great! and it is only 3$! I also picked up the Shea Moisture Mommy stretchmark repair cream and spray oil. I have been testing this out and will let you know how I like it later. Lastly from Target I got the heel genius cream by Soap&Glory.

From Ulta I had a 20% coupon and so I picked up this blue nail polish which will be perfect for my nails for my Son’s birthday party. I also got the Bronze Goddess body oil, picked it up for my honeymoon. Plus I love the smell of bronze Goddess. I got 2 matte liquid lip colors from Rimmel London, a foundation from models own, and a dry brush which I talked about earlier.

I love all my purchases and can’t wait to try the rest of the items I haven’t had the chance to yet!

till next time

Dry Brushing 101

I recently and finally got my hands on a dry brush. Sometimes I feel like I live in the middle of nowhere with people who know nothing… I know I know not very nice but I literally went in to so many beauty stores and not one single person knew what I was talking about when I asked for a dry brush so I finally ordered one from Ulta.com.

This is the particular one I purchased. It is ecotools and only 4.99$ There are so many great benefits to dry brushing!!

I got this particular chart from pinterest, credit to Dr. Axe.
Dry brushing is great for you. It improves your lymphatic system. You should always brush towards your heart to help drainage of toxins from the body.
It improves circulation.
It can help to reduce cellulite!! ( Hello did you really need any other reason?? )
It reduces stress.
I am all about it and you should probably too!! give it a try friends!
Till next time,

UD Naked Skin Shape shifter

It should come as no that I am obsessed with Urban Decay! When I worked at Ulta as an artist and manager I used their products non stop! They really are bomb. After I left working there I sort of fell off the Urban Decay train. Not for any specific reason. I just started testing out less expensive options of makeup when I found out I had a baby on the way. That has not stopped my love for all things beauty whether cheap or expensive. Okay anyways while on vacation for the 4th of July weekend I of course had to stop in at my old stomping grounds and pick up this gem! IMG_0114This bad boy retails for 45$. It comes with 5 cream contour and highlight shades and 4 contour and highlight powders. There is a brush you can purchase that goes along with the palette for 39$, I opted not to because I have plenty of brushes to highlight and contour with.

I am so pleased with my purchase!! The creams blend like a dream and the powders are silky soft and if you are looking for a natural highlight and contour this will be perfect. The shimmery highlight shade that is in the palette gives a beautiful natural glow but not super beaming so if you are like me and want a super glow you will want to add another highlight.

Overall this is an A+ palette and purchase!! I would definitely recommend this if you are on the look for an excellent all in one contour and highlight palette!

Till next time loves!

High End VS. Drug Store: My Favorites

It’s no secret that I have an obsession with makeup. It has been a major part of my life for the past 10 years, since I first started as a makeup artist. As a mom now I haven’t quieted my obsession but I like to look at prices a little more and find products that I love just as much as the high end product but at a faction of the cost! Here is my list:

Screen Shot 2017-04-07 at 6.55.59 AM

I will say this disclaimer before I start bc I will end up repeating it a million times. It was extremely difficult to pick my number 1 product for some of the categories and I have many favorites in some of them like concealers..

Primer: Smashbox 36$ vs Rimmel 7$ Both of these primers are awesome and if you have oily skin then definitely give the rimmel a try! It is so bomb! and worth a try before spending the 30$ more.

Foundation: Clinique beyond perfecting 28$ vs E.L.F flawless finish 6$ I have been using the clinique for about a month and a half now and I really enjoy it. It has such a beautiful finish. The elf is only 6$!!!! It is literally so amazing only downside is there aren’t many shades.

Concealer: Stila aqua glow serum concealer 27$ vs other high end brands like mac pro long wear. I haven’t found a drug store brand that i love yet.

Powder: Laura Mercier. Need I say more? I don’t even have another translucent powder.

Bronzer: Marc Jacobs O!mega bronze 49$ vs Covergirl Mineral Bronzer 7.99$

Blush: Pur Minerals 18$ vs Milani rose powder blush 9$ both are so amazing that I have back ups for them both. Literally.

Highlight: Becca 38$ Unfortunately I don’t have a drugstore highlighter. I ordered one from elf today so should be here shortly. If you have a recommendation for me Please tell me in the comments!!!

Eyeshadow: Lorac vs Morphe Both are impeccable quality and should be owned!!!

Eyeliner: Mac gel 17$ vs. Maybelline 8.99$ They both work great but Mac is still my absolute favorite. I have been using it for years!!

Mascara: Too faced better than sex 23$ vs L’Oreal feline 8.99$ TF gives insane volume and l’oreal gives great length.

Brows: ABH dipbrow 18$ vs. elf brow pencil 2$…. 2$!! need I say more? Both are amazing but if you want something super quick and easy then elf.. just try it trust me!

Lashes: House of Lashes 12$ vs. Ardell 3.99$

Lips: Bite Beauty lip crayon 24$ vs. Colourpop lippie stix 5$ The great thing about about bite beauty is how long they last and the amazing color it puts out. But then again colourpop is pretty amazing too!

Let me know all of your favorites in the comments so I can give them a try!! All of my favorites can be found on Ulta.com, sephora.com, or target except morphe, colourpop and house of lashes which can be found at their own personal websites.
