    April 2019 Favorites

    April flew by in a flash and I guess because of that I only have a few favorites this month. Of these few favorites a few of them have to do with entertainment, one is a skincare item, and one is an experience. Let’s get all the entertainment things out of the way first. This is technically from March, but I didn’t watch it until April so that’s why it’s an April favorite. On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and a few members of The Roots filmed themselves singing “In the Still of the Night” under the Brooklyn Bridge as an homage to doo-wop. I loved it! Next up, a…

    Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser

    If you have been following me on here and/or on social media for a while then you know I have been lucky enough to be gifted some great products from Skinfix over the past two years. They make an array of wonderful products that are good for the skin and free from harmful things like parabens, sulfates, formaldehyde, etc. They recently sent me their Foaming Oil Cleanser and I wanted to try it out right away so I could share my thoughts with you guys because it is going to be exclusive to Sephora starting April 2! This foaming oil cleanser is clinically proven to increase hydration, improve smoothness, reduce blotchiness,…

    Peter Thomas Roth – Peptide 21 Collection

    Happy Wednesday! For a split second yesterday morning I thought it was Wednesday, so that was a bit of a let down but it’s Wednesday for real today! I’m hoping the work day goes by smoothly and then I’ve got plans to hang out with the bff after work. On to the topic for today’s post. You guys know I love trying out new skincare so I was excited when I got a package from Peter Thomas Roth and Influenster a few weeks ago. I was sent the new Peptide 21 Collection which includes the Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads, the Wrinkle Resist Serum, and the Lift & Firm Moisturizer.…

    February 2019 Favorites

    February flew by in a flash (alliteration anyone?). I can’t believe it went by so quick! January was a little bit of a crawl, but February really went by in the blink of an eye. I was supposed to go to a blogger event last night and I did get there after driving for an hour, got dinner, got Starbucks….and then got an email saying the event had to be canceled last minute….It was a bummer especially after my friend and I drove all the way up there but oh well. Anyway, I have a few February favorites to share with you so let’s get to it! First up, in…

    Love & Mickey Mouse Top

    Over the summer Uniqlo launched their Love & Mickey Mouse capsule collection. I’m not sure if the collection is still launching pieces, but I was in Uniqlo last week and there were still Disney pieces. I may or may not have picked up a couple tees. But, that’s neither here nor there. Like I was saying, over the summer the collection launched and when I saw a preview online the brightly colored, multicolor Mickey on a black 3/4 sleeve top immediately grabbed my attention. I needed this top! The problem was it was only going to be available at select Uniqlo stores and the online release date was when I…

    Keeping Skin Looking Radiant Throughout Winter

    As the winter chill bites your skin, it actually sucks the moisture out of your skin cells. It’s a strange thing for most people because you would think that a hot sun of summer would do that. True, summer does mean you need to moisturize your skin more frequently but winter is probably just as prominent in this category. The thing is, there’s no humidity in the air during winter. This means that any natural oils on skin slowly begin to evaporate because there’s simply no equilibrium. The fact that there is water in the air means that your oils are not being sucked off your skin. The exact opposite…

    Volition Beauty – Rose of Jericho Renewing Elixir

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I am a fan of Volition Beauty and for over a year they’ve been kind enough to send me some products to try out. The newest is the Rose of Jericho Renewing Elixir. The Rose of Jericho is known as the Resurrection Plant, which sounds pretty cool to me. Using the resilience of the plant, the elixir ” helps to re-energize and assist in the acceleration of skin’s cell renewal process. Naturally retaining moisture and springing back to life from its once dried out state, its the most effective skin care ingredient that you’ve never heard of.” It’s also described as…

    Neutrogena Rainbath Shower & Bath Gel

    I love trying out new body washes and bath/shower gels. Who doesn’t like good smelling bath products? I recently got spoiled by Neutrogena when they sent me not just one but 5 shower & bath gels from their Rainbath line! First of all, how gorgeous are these colors?! I love that each scent is a different color. I received fresh plum, pomegranate, pear & green tea, ocean mist, and one without a name so it must be the original. I’m currently using “Ocean Mist” and it smells like I’m at the spa! I love that the scent is there, but subtle and not in-your-face strong. The shower gel lathers up…

    Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Cleanser

    Sunday Riley is a brand that I’ve been wanting to try for years. People rave about the brand all the time but I hadn’t tried anything by them until now. When I was sent the Ceramic Slip Cleanser I was very excited to try it out. I’ve been using it for about a week now and I’ve been loving it! Here’s info about the cleanser: “This balancing, foaming gel cleanser pulls out impurities (while pulling in clean hydration) for smaller looking pores and baby-soft skin. Made with plant-based soaps that naturally purify skin and remove makeup, Ceramic Slip is formulated to clean and balance even the most sensitive skin.” Essentially it…
