IMG_0079

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my first impression review of this Pixi set. I’ve heard so many good things about some of the products that are included in this best of brights set that I knew I had to pick it up. This set retails for $22 at Target, you can purchase it here.

What’s in this set: 

Glow Mud Cleanser – 13 milliliters

Glow Tonic – 30 milliliters

Glow Mud Mask – 13 milliliters

Glow Mud Mask:

First off this mask is a similar texture to the cleanser and it makes your skin so soft and hydrated. I left my mask on for 20 minutes as I was finishing up a tv show. I know I know it states it’s a 15 minute mask, but who really follows those rules. I lost track of time and boom it was on my face for 20 minutes. Surprisingly the mask didn’t break me out which is always a plus in my book.

Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner:

Glow Mud Cleanser:

This cleanser left my skin feeling baby soft. I was so surprised by the way my skin felt. It was a mixture fo clean and hydrated skin that I am not used to. It did a great job of prepping my skin for the rest of my skincare routine.

Overall I enjoyed this skincare set. It has given me a chance to test out three new products that I would have never picked up full size. I now know what all the fuzz is all about with the Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner which is one of the main reason why I picked this up. If you are curious in trying out any of these products I highly recommend you try this kit out.

Have you ever tried any of Pixi products before? Have you tried any of their skincare products before?

Have a good weekend!

Affordable Jewelry Haul

IMG_0125

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today I am sharing with a few pieces of jewelry that I recently purchased. As you all know I try and stick to a budget when it comes to the new jewelry I add to my collection. I already own plenty of expensive statement pieces and I don’t need to add any more of those to my collection. But let’s be honest trends come and go and you may gravitate towards a particular trend this season, but not want to spend to much on it since it will be temporary most likely.

I realized that Walmart has some amazing trendy affordable pieces that I couldn’t pass up. I would suggest you go personally to your Walmart and see what they carry, if you can’t here is the link to all of their fashion necklaces.

Can you believe that the necklace sets were $10, the first necklace was only $5, and the last pair of earrings were $3. I am in love with these new additions. They will come in handy for wedding and birthday season.

Where is your favorite place to buy affordable jewelry? 

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.

Stay chic!

How I unwind at the end of the day

IMG_0086

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all how I unwind at the end of a stressful day. I have adapted a routine that truly works at helping me lower my stress and my anxiety and I owe it to these simple steps.

One.  Diffuse Lavender about two hours prior to falling asleep.

Two. Brew a cup of my favorite tea.

Three. Apply Valor Essential oil on the bottom of my feet as I am jumping into bed.

Four. Apply Panaway essential oil to my knees and sore muscles.

I have been loving adding these essential oils to my daily evening routine. Even just the simple routine of making a cup of tea has been such a relaxing experience. Even if you aren’t into essential oils taking time for you is such a important of your self-care. I am a firm believer of taking time for yourself.

What is your evening routine? How do you unwind after a stressful day? 

Have a great Friday! I will see you on Monday.

Spring Wreath DIY

IMG_0050

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today I am sharing with you one of my first spring DIYs. I started this DIY last year and never actually finished it. Call me level 10 procrastinator, but sometimes things happen and you have to put projects away until next year and that is exactly what happened. All of the supplies I use are actually very affordable. The flowers come from the dollar store and the wire base comes from Walmart for a few bucks. I used floral wire and my glue gun to secure it in place.

Profusion 6 Color Blush Palette

IMG_9970

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today am so excited to share with you all this super affordable blush palette that I picked up at Target. It has 6 versatile colors for every day use and the best part that it’s only $4.99! Honestly, I have found that I sometimes you don’t get the best quality for $5, but this palette was a real gem of a find in my opinion. Now let me be clear you aren’t going to get blushes that are so pigmented that you are intimidated to even look at the palette for fear of applying to much.

These blushes are build-able and are perfect for beginners, intermediates if you are a pro you probably have other blushes that you would much rather use. I love that Target has started to carry more affordable brands that actually work and aren’t crappy products.

Have you used this brand before? What is your go to affordable blush palette? 

Have a great Weekend! I will see you on Monday.
