Update + Future Giveaway

IMG_9752

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

2018 has been such a interesting year for me. I learned such a valuable lesson straight off the bat that has shaped who I am becoming. It wasn’t anything earth shattering it was a lesson I was avoiding all of last year. I kept putting my head in the sand and just pretending it wasn’t meant for me. Life took the veil off my eyes and here I am today feeling like the same old me, but with more life bruises than I would have liked. I have learned to accept that I will get scrapes, bruises and scars during this journey called life and you can either embrace them or continue to sit with your head under the sand and ignore them.

These upcoming weeks are going to be crucial because I took a huge step towards my own happiness and better mental health. If all pans out I will be writing a follow-up blog post explaining a bit about what I am referring to. I think others like myself may find it helpful. As vague as I am currently being I just want to let you know you always have a option, even if it’s not convenient at the moment life has a way of figuring things out to give you a way out of any tough situation you may be in.

Okay… Enough emotional stuff let’s talk about my future giveaway. I have decided that once I hit 700 followers on my blog I will be doing a exciting giveaway for you all. I want to give back to all of you who have supported me and have stuck by me through the good and the bad.

With a grateful heart I want to say thank you!

Stay tune for the giveaway and make sure you share my page if you think this may help someone.

Have a beautiful day!

My Current Primers

IMG_9706

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you three primers that I use on my face on a daily basis. As a oily skinned girl I have to make sure that I use products that help my skin retain all of moisture and makeup products I put on my face. If I am going to spend 30+ minutes on a full face of makeup I want it to stick around for a while.

For the face:

Soap and Glory One Heck of A Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer

NYX Pore Filler

For the Eyes: 

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Primer

This trio has been doing amazing things with for my skin and my makeup. I think I finally found three bases that help keep my makeup on longer. If you are in the market for a new primer and have a similar skin type like mine you might want to check these out. Luckily they are all extremely affordable.

What is you current go to face primer? Have you tried any of the ones I currently use?

Have a great weekend. See you all on Monday!

Wet n Wild -Micellar Cleansing Water

IMG_9698

Happy Monday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a review on this Micellar cleansing water. I have been using this product for the past couple of weeks after I ran out of my normal Micellar cleansing water. I really wanted to love this product because it affordable and you can pick it up at any local drugstore.

The main reason why I don’t like this product is that it’s 50% oil and 50% cleansing water. The direction states that you need to shake well before use. Other than the oily residue that is left on my skin this micellar water really takes off all your makeup.

Overall I think you can find something that’s a bit more affordable and that has more product that does not leave you with that oily residue that no one wants after they cleanse their face.

Have you tried this Wet n Wild -Micellar Cleansing Water? What are your thoughts?

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday

January Favorites 2018

IMG_9648

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you some of my favorite beauty products for the month of January. I am still in awe that this month has flown by. I feel most people don’t like the month of January, but I actually enjoy how this month  prepares you for the rest of the year. It’s the beginning of change starting from remembering that it’s no longer 2017 and you have to stop writing the wrong year.

Graffiti Park – Austin, TX

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you the last installment of my trip to Austin Texas. Keeping with the theme of creativity and art. I visited the Graffiti Park at Castle Hills. This place is a paradise for Graffiti and art.  You could bring your own spray paint and add you own master piece to the walls. Normally Graffiti is frowned upon, but not here. I was too busy spray painting my own art, but I did manage to get a few pictures of my favorite art that other artist had left behind.

I absolutely loved being able to partake in this experience. I never thought I would of been able to spray paint a wall that was out in the open without getting in trouble. This was definitely a 2017 highlight.

Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday!
