Quick tip/review: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Balm

Hello! How is the first week of 2017 going for ya? Hope it’s going better than it is for me. I’ve been having some rough days (long story), but nothing too serious. On some days I just get a little overwhelmed by everything and everybody, but I’m trying my best not to let stuff get to me as much…. Anyway, I have an awesome product to share with you today. I’ve been wanting to review this product in forever (I’ve almost finished the entire jar, that’s how much I love it), but today is finally the day! It’s the Bye...

My End of the Year Makeup and Skincare Haul (it’s a lot!)

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s a new year, let’s all make it a great one. 🙂 Are you ready for a huge haul? I’m going to be showing you ALL the goodies I purchased in November and December and yes…it’s a lot! I kinda went overboard, because of all the sales that were going on. I didn’t pay full price for any of these things. Most of these items were either on sale or I used a few (early Christmas) gift cards I had. That’s my way of justifying the money *blank stare* I know it’s a weak excuse, because,...

Happy Holidays! Here’s this month’s PLAY! by SEPHORA box

Merry Christmas, everyone! Hope you had a great time with your family and friends. We had an amazing time. 🙂 I love creating memories and starting new traditions with my little family. Check out my Instagram for a selection of pics. Anyway, thanks so much for sticking around and reading this. My posts are becoming more rare and I don’t have any other explanation for it than the fact that I now have 2 kids instead of 1. Double the fun, but I also have way less time for my blog. Most of the time I’m just tired. I have...

Review: Chamomile Eye Therapy, an organic eye cream, by Made From Earth

Two months ago I announced that I would be trying and comparing two popular eye creams and I enthusiastically named my upcoming review the ‘battle of two eye creams’. I started using the Stem Cell Collagen Moisturizer by Lady Soma and I planned on switching to Made From Earth’s Chamomile Eye Therapy after 4 weeks of use. Unfortunately, the idea of comparing the two didn’t quite work out, because I immediately started getting little bumps under my eyes after a few days of using the first one. I think it might have been an allergic reaction to one of the...

Upcoming review: Battle of two eye creams

Remember me? I’m still here! Barely though. I think I’ve been getting about an average of 4 hours of sleep every night. I can barely keep my eyes open. I have to admit, my first born Mason is 4 years old now and I had forgotten how much work a newborn is. It seems like such a long time ago that he was this little… Baby Kayla is doing great though! She’s now almost 6 weeks old and growing like grass. We’ve been breastfeeding, which is going really well. She looks a lot like Mason, but I do see a...

My skincare routine: L’Oreal Revitalift Bright Reveal (drugstore)

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I’m here to share with you which products I’m currently using on my skin. It’s been a while since I last went over my skincare routine, so I thought it was time. I’m actually currently on a mission to use up most, if not all, the makeup and skincare samples I have. I’m also not buying anything new (limited edition makeup excepted) until the end of the year. This decision sounds hard for someone who’s so much into beauty like I am, but actually…it’s not. I’ve done something like this before (last year, I believe) and...

I received this month’s PLAY! by SEPHORA last week and shipping was surprisingly faster than it was last time.

Upcoming drugstore skincare review: everything by L’Oreal Paris

I’m 35 weeks pregnant now! This means in a little over a month (probably less) the baby will be here. Woohaa! I’m scared and excited at the same time…Scared because of the delivery (even though with my son the delivery was relatively quick and easy, but every birth is different of course) and excited because I can’t wait to see her little face! I caught a glimpse of her last week during the sonogram and she’s beautiful. 🙂 Anyway, on to the topic of this blog post. Ever since I found out I’m expecting, I’ve been keeping my skincare as...
