|Makeup Bee-Gone |


I’ve had such a hard time finding a makeup wipe that is not only gentle enough to not make my sensitive skin break out, but also effective enough to remove even my most stubborn waterproof makeup. Recently I decided to purchase the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towlettes and I have fallen in love! These wipes are formulated for normal skin, ( as opposed to their Sensitive Skin, Normal to Oily, Normal to Dry Exfoliating, or Normal to Dry cleansing wipes), and works so well on my skin. Although I almost always wash my face before I go to sleep, (and YOU should too), these wipes give you a chance to take the day off and let your skin breathe before you cleanse it at night. Or, these wipes can be useful to remove your makeup before swimming, before working out, or before trying out a different makeup look!

You can purchase these wipes pretty much anywhere! I picked mine up at CVS, but you can also purchase them at Target or a Walmart!

| Camouflage | 

When it comes to summertime, there is nothing I hate more than wearing a full face of makeup. I have always been very minimalistic when it comes to using products on my skin and it has taken me awhile to find the perfect balance between achieving a medium to full coverage look while using little to no product. I think I’ve finally found my holy grail item for just that!

ºMaybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector:  This product offers perfect coverage for your undereyes as well as for blemishes without looking thick or cakey. Also because this product is infused with ACTYL C, (an antioxidant), that actually works to help heal your skin. (Obviously I wouldn’t rely on this alone to heal acne).

  • Shade: In the winter I normally use this shade while in the summer I use this one.

ºTo Apply: Instead of putting the wand directly onto my undereyes and blemishes, I take the wand and dab a dime-sized amount of product onto the back of my hand. From there I take my Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush, dab it into the product, and apply it on my skin with a light stippling motion. I don’t like putting the wand directly onto my face because I don’t want to transfer any dirt or impurity from my skin back into the product. This way, I can ensure that every single time I use my concealer, I’m not using a product that has been affected by use on troubled skin.

ºSonia Kashuk Flat Top Multipurpose Brush: I purchased my brush at Target as part of a Limited Edition four piece core makeup brush set. I absolutely love this brush because it doesn’t soak up a lot of product into the bristles and it blends my concealer so naturally. If you aren’t interested in purchasing this entire set of brushes, you can purchase the brush separately here!

| Sunkissed |

In my opinion, the next best thing to laying out in the summer months is creating a makeup look that resembles a sunkissed glow. For this reason, these two products have become my go-to items this summer. Here’s why I love these items so much and how you can get your hands on them!

ºMaybelline Fit Me BlushThis blush is in the shade 208 or Medium Nude. I love this product because it isn’t too shimmery where it looks like you’re walking straight out of the 90s but it does have a little sheen to it that perfectly captures the light. This shade really compliments your bone structure while offering your face an overall warm glow. I have olive skin so this may not work for you if you are fair or if you have a deeper skin tone. In that case, I suggest this shade for fair skin and this shade for deeper tones.

This product is also available at Bed Bath and Beyond and Buy Me Beauty. (I picked mine up at the local CVS).

ºSonia Kashuk Tapered BrushI purchased this brush as part of a set sold at Target! This brush is amazing because its shape lends an easy application for inexperienced to professional users and is amazing quality. I find that this brush does not soak up or grab too much product but allows you to transfer the pigment easily from the product to your skin. If you aren’t interested in purchasing this entire set at Target (although you get more for your dollar if you do!), then here is a great Sonia Kashuk brush alternative!

| Spring Lip Favorites |

As we cross the finish line of Spring and head into Summer (aka the best season), I thought I would share with you guys the lip products that I loved during Spring! Each of these shades could be worn in any season but I personally loved the way these products complemented my spring wardrobe. Comment down what your favorite spring lip product is!


ºMaybelline Color Blur: | Shade: Although the actual shade that I own is only available in certain stores (I’m Blushing!), the shade that is most comparable would be I Like to Mauve It. | This product is one of my all-time favorites because of how long-lasting it is! Not only is the formula matte but it also won’t make your lips dry or cracked. This product is double sided, one side with the lipstick and one side contains a smudger that you run over your lips to give the color that blurred effect. I would definitely recommend wearing a lip liner under it to give you a good base for longer wear.

This product is also available at: Ulta, Walgreens, and Amazon

ºMilani Amore Matte Lip Créme: |Shade 10: Adorable | You guys have already heard me talk about this product multiple times but I can’t help myself, I love it! This shade is a perfect transition from cold Winter months to Spring and even into early Summer. The formula is super long-lasting and dries very matte. I would suggest pairing this product with a lip liner as well just so the color has a good base to grab.

This products is also available at: Walgreens, Target, and CVS

ºRevlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor: | Shade: Comparable to HD Devotion and HD Intensity | This product I have had for a few months now and it has become one of my go-to’s because of its ability to compliment a variety of looks. The formula is very smooth and dries matte without being tacky. This product can be worn alone or paired with any lip liner (I personally don’t love the formula for Revlon’s lip liners).

This product is also available at: Ulta, Target, and CVS

| Sabbath |

Although some of you may be unfamiliar with the term sabbath, this concept should not be foreign to your lives. In the Bible, God commanded the people of Israel to take one day to do absolutely nothing but remember all that the Lord had done in their lives. I know what you’re thinking, what a waste of time! In all reality though, the Lord that we humans actually crave sabbath or rest. I know as women we often keep ourselves too busy to find time to relax. Then, even when we have free time, we almost feel guilty if we take a second to just rest. However, I really encourage you, yes YOU, to take thirty minutes this week to recharge and pamper yourself. Take time to think about all that the Lord had done for you and how much He has blessed you. I can bet you that those thirty minutes will give you the endurance to keep pressing forward in this life!

| Need help creating your own sabbath? Here are some of my personal favorites that encourage me to relax! |

º Lavender Milk Bath: My favorite thing to do for my own sabbath is to take a bath! Pouring just a capful of this into your bath not only makes your skin smell amazing but it actually delivers on its promise to leave your skin extra moisturized! You can also look for this product at your local Target or Walmart!

º Stress Relief Body Wash: This body wash smells amazing and contains a mixture of lavender, chamomile, and ylang ylang that truly help your skin. I don’t normally use body wash, (I’m more of a bar soap girl), but this stuff is so moisturizing and is a great replacement for shave gel! You can pick this up at Target and Walmart as well!

º Milk and Honey Bath Bomb: This pack of six mini bath bombs are amazing! All you have to do is fill up your bathtub and then pop one (or two if you’d like) into the water. You can watch as the bath bomb makes your water smell and feel amazing! I bought my Me! Bath bombs at Target because they have a ton of different scents there! | I included some below! |

Papaya Nectar     Mini Ice Cream     Cucumber Melon     Pomegranate Mini Ice Cream

º Stress Relief CandleThis candle was gifted to me from a friend and I must say that although I usually lean more toward sweet or fruity scents, this candle looks and smells great! It has Eucalyptus and Spearmint essential oils in it to help you relax! In fact, if you’re interested, Bath and Body works actually sells an entire line of Stress Relief products!

º Over and Over Bath BombLast but CERTAINLY not least is Lush’s Over and Over bath bomb! It is no secret that I am not only obsessed with all things Lush, but also that I am especially in love with their bath bombs. This particular one is covered in organic cocoa butter and contains Lime oil, Cypress oil, and Orris oil that work to moisturize and rejuvenate your skin! ***Information about this product was taken right from the Lush website!*** If you’re interested in shopping for other bath bombs made by Lush, click Bath Bombs.

| Summer Essentials – Baby Edition|

ATTENTION ALL MOMMIES (and anyone with small children!)

    I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t believe summer is already coming!” Well have no fear! These summer essentials will allow you to breathe a little bit easier knowing you have products that you can depend on throughout the coming months!

º Tinksky Leather Backpack/Diaper Bag: [bottom left] I used to carry around a diaper bag that was super cute but was also big and bulky. This synthetic leather backpack (that doubles as a diaper bag) is easy to carry and acts as a cheaper alternative to the honest brand diaper bag. I find that even though they are smaller, I am still able to fit everything I need for a day out with my son. These backpacks come in various colors and are available for free shipping via your amazon prime account! If you’re planning on taking trips to the mall, to the zoo, or to the local pool this summer, then I strongly suggest you purchase this bag!

º Baseball CapIt is finally time to ditch those scratchy, sweaty knit beanies and purchase some baseball caps for your baby this summer! I find that not only do baseball caps protect my son’s scalp from the sun, but also the bill of the cap protects his face! I love having the peace of mind that his head is protected from sunburn! While I could not find the exact hat pictured, I’ve included links to various affordable baseball caps! Also, if you have a baby girl and want them to wear something other than a baseball cap, I’ve linked some sun hats as well!

Spring Cap        Pineapple Print Trucker Hat     Sun Cap

Polka Dot Sun Hat     White Sun Hat     Reversible Sun Hat

º Bubbles: If you’re looking for a simple activity to entertain your baby that leaves little to no mess, look no further! You can purchase bubbles anywhere and they provide your baby with hours of fun! Not only that, but also buying your baby (or toddler) some bubbles gives you a great excuse to get outside and enjoy the warm weather!

º Sunscreen: If you purchase nothing else from this post, PLEASE purchase your son or daughter some sunscreen. While there are many brands to choose from, including some organic brands, I have found that the Coppertone Water Babies Lotion Spray with SPF 50 works best for my son! I love this product because it’s easy to spray on your child without the mess of lathering them up and it is water resistant so it’s perfect for a day at the pool!

| Please be sure to wait until your baby is at least 6 months of age before applying ANY sunscreen |

º CAT Dump Truck: Sometimes it can be difficult to find a toy that will be able to transition through various ages with your growing child. This CAT truck is the perfect solution to that problem! I find that my 8 month old loves to play with the blocks in this truck set and I know that as he grows, he will be able to push it around and play outside in the dirt with it. This is a great purchase for both sitting babies and for busy toddlers. |For a more affordable option, click here! |
