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.

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.

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.

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 a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all another beauty box I found at Target. Here is the first one I shared with you all. This particular box was available at the actual store. They had a side display with four different variations of the “beauty” box. Each beauty box retails $7.00 and comes full of awesome goodies.

What the beauty box includes:

Simple Water Boost Micellar Remover Eye Pads 

Nexxus Keraphix Shampoo

Nexxus Keraphix Conditioner

Like I mentioned in my other beauty box review you can’t beat the price that these boxes retail for. It’s like buying one of the full size products and getting the rest of the box for free. I love that Target has made these available for those of us that like to try new products, but don’t have the money to spend on full size beauty products.

What do you all think of these beauty boxes?

Have a great weekend see you on Monday!

Da Apothecary Calming Herbal Steam

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you this Calming Herbal Steam I found at TJ Maxx. I have been trying to give my face a little bit more TLC because my skin has been acting out due to the drastic temperature change her in Northern Virginia.

I first found out about Herbal Steams when I went and got a facial a few months ago. The mixture of the Herbal Steam + the heat opened up my pores and allowed for my skin to release the toxins out. It was also very calming and a nice little treat. I decided I wanted to find a Calming Herbal Steam to try at home. Luckily, I found this at TJ Maxx and I really like it.

This Calming Herbal Steam has been such a fun way to test out more unique products that I normally wouldn’t try out. I am excited to see what other products I can try using the steam tent methods.

Do you ever shop for beauty and skincare products at TJ Maxx? 

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

My Favorite High-end Highlighters

IMG_0253

Happy Monday Everyone!

This past weekend I went to a local beauty convention and it got me thinking about how when I started my makeup journey I didn’t know how to distinguish between what kind of product was going to work with my skin and the products that the beauty gurus were “selling me”. I am easily steered into peer pressure and ended up buying product that completely sucked. If I had to tell my younger self what products I should be investing in I would want her to know this about high-end highlighters.

IMG_0237

Highlighting can be such a intimidating thing so start with a versatile product that will give you more bang for your buck. I do have to point out that the highlights I mention come from my collection and there are plenty of other great highlights, but these are the ones I wish I knew about sooner.

IMG_0247

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette will provide you all you need until you are ready to move onto a more power punching highlight. This palette has three shades that can be used all over the skin. It’s soft enough to be worn every day and can be built upon each other to create a more dramatic look for school dances and parties.

IMG_0241

The Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlight is a next level highlighter. It brings two different tones that allow you to mix and create a really show stopping look. The Mean Money highlighter can be worn every day and if you mix it with Hu$tla Baby it creates a really show stopping look.

IMG_0243

This Dose of Colors Highlighter by the Desi X Katy is one of my absolute favorites. This highlighter look a bit dark in the pan, but when applied to my skin it’s absolutely stunning. If I build it up it definitely is a show stopper.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post style.

Let me know what other beauty product I should do next?

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

April Lifestyle Favorites 2018

IMG_0267

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you all my April Lifestyle favorites. This month I had a different variety of favorites spanning from earrings to a keychain and my favorite pen, which is the Pilot Precise V5 0.5mm. I want to start sharing more lifestyle things on my blog and I figured that a start would be my monthly lifestyle favorites.

IMG_0265

If you have any suggestions on what else you would like to see, please leave it down in the comment below?

IMG_0270These are my most worn pair of earrings this month and they were extremely inexpensive. The silver pair is from Kohl’s and the gold pair is from Walmart.

IMG_0274

Guys my pom pom obsession has reached a new level. My car keys now have a mini pom pom so I don’t loose them. I know I know it’s so adorable. It doubles as a stress reliever because it’s so soft that you just get lost playing with it in your hands.

IMG_0275

This month I have been taking care of my tattoo a lot more. I have been applying this Tattoo Goo twice a day to help keep vibrant. I have also been trying to make sure I don’t get sick and my new favorite anti-bacterial hand gel has been this Eucalyptus + Spearmint from Bath and Body Works.

IMG_0278

SOY Candles are amazing! I recently discovered my new candle addiction. I have been burning this one for the last month and it’s still going strong.  I have also been adding two drops of the Young Living Lemon Vitality oil to my water every morning to help with my digestion and over all health.

What have been some of your favorite lifestyle favorites this past month? 

Have a great Weekend and I will see you all on Monday!

Empties + I hit pan on – Beauty Products

IMG_0235

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today I am excited to share with you all some beauty product that I have finished up + some that I have hit pan on, yay! As you all know my goal is to use up any product that I purchase. That is not the case for every product in my beauty collection. I thought I would share this historic moment with everyone I finished three products, plus hit pan on four products.

IMG_0235

I am hoping to keep this momentum going and will make this a series on the blog if you all enjoy knowing what products I finish up.

IMG_0232

First up are the products I managed to completely finish. I finished two concealers and a mini dry shampoo. I have been tackling quite a few face products because they have gotten out of control. I definitely need to stop buying concealers I have way too many.

IMG_0241

IMG_0234

These are all the products that I hit pan on and I am so excited because I normally don’t stick to one product long enough to see the pan. I’m crossing my fingers that these will soon be finished so I can start tackling other products in my makeup collection.

What are some products that you are working on finishing up? Do you get just as excited as I do when you finish a makeup product? 

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