A Blue Beauty Haul

IMG_0612

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome Back to my blog. I know it’s been a while since I posted on my blog. So to make it up to you all I wanted to share a haul and explain a bit why I have been absent. So while I was gone I did a little bit of shopping and I started a new job. I also have been working on my personal relationships. I also have been nurturing my relationship with myself something that continues to be a top priority. I really needed a break to work on the real parts in my life. I hope you all can understand why I have been gone for so long and can forgive my absence. So now onto the haul.

I was in dire need of a few staple items and others were a simple treat to myself for accomplishing a few of my goals. There was a bit of a blue common theme with all the items I picked up.

e.l.f Shimmering Highlight Powder -Starlight Glow

IMG_0553

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing a first impression on this e.l.f. Shimmering Highlight Powder in Starlight Glow. I have been trying to branch out from all of my high-end highlighters and give some drugstore brands a try. Off the bat I had heard some pretty good things about the e.l.f highlighters. The price is very affordable ($6) for what you are getting and I wanted to see for myself what all this talk was about.

What e.l.f states about this highlight: This lightweight, versatile pressed shimmer highlighting powder helps amplify your natural radiance with a refined glow. Microfine particles blur lines to create a soft focus effect on the skin. Designed to highlight and reflect light for a luminous, photo-ready finish.

They have 7 other shades available in this same formula, you can shop them here. Overall I like that I can build this highlight up as much as I want and can wear it on a every day basis without feeling like I look like a disco ball.

IMG_0555

I am really curious to check out the other shades that they have available for this bronzer. I definitely see this bronzer staying in my makeup routine for a little while longer.

Have you tried this particular bronzer? Any drugstore highlighters you recommend I should try? 

Have a great day!

DIY Deadpool Themed Jean Jacket

IMG_0580

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you a really awesome DIY project I had been working on for the new release of Deadpool 2. I really wanted to wear something that showed my love for Deadpool, but not dress up in costume. I compromised on this jean jacket and at the end of it all I had such a great time watching Deadpool 2.

IMG_0529Step One:

Use a jacket you already have, or find one at the thrift store or at your local retail store that maybe on clearance. I wanted to add more texture to my jacket and decide to spray paint it and sponge on some white paint all over it (this step can be optional).

IMG_0530

Step two:

Buy a assortment of iron on patches and place them in the areas you feel work best with the jacket. I also purchased iron on letters and numbers to add Deadpool’s last name and the year the comic was created.

IMG_0532

Step Three:

Follow the directions on each of the patches and apply heat. You can also use fabric glue to apply the patches if you don’t own a iron.

IMG_0543

(Optional) Step Four:

My iron on letters had me peel off the plastic bit off of them to complete my look.

The finished product!

This DIY was so much fun to create and I am so excited to try to create more wearable DIY’s in the future. I hope you all enjoyed.

Are any of you Deadpool fans? How about any other superhero?

Have a great weekend!

Heart Felt Wool Dryer Balls Review

IMG_0364

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I bring you a different kind of review. Today I am reviewing these Felt wool dryer balls made from pure New Zealand wool. I have been trying to make a effort at taking better care of my clothes. I was reading online and stumbled upon these reusable wool balls that can replace your dryer sheets which can only be used once. I was sold when I read that these dryer balls are reusable and would practically pay for themselves before I have to think about replacing them.

IMG_0367

Now you may be asking well how do you get your clothes to smell as nice as the dryer sheets? All of the reviews I read said to apply two to three drops of my favorite essential oil and viola! you have amazing smelling clothes.

IMG_0366

I’ve used them a few times now, and I can honestly say that these dryer balls do cut down on my clothes dry time. I also love that I can control what scent my clothes smell like without taking away the softness.

Have you ever tried felt wool dryer balls? Any other tips or tricks you use on your laundry? 

Have a great day!

First Impression: Smashbox +Vlada Highlighter

IMG_0348

Happy Monday Everyone!

I am so excited to share this product with you all. I think I have found my new everyday highlighter. This Smashbox + Vlada Petal Metal Highlighter is absolutely stunning. It’s not only beautiful, but it’s also the perfect every day highlighter. I picked up the shade Gilded Rose and I believe they also have another shade that is much more intense with pinky undertones.

IMG_0334

IMG_0342

I applied this with a very gentle hand and it gave me the glow I needed for my everyday makeup look I have been wearing recently. I think I may have to go back for the other shade because I’m absolutely obsessed with this formula.

Have you tried this highlighter out yet? Are you a fan of Smashbox Cosmetics? 

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