|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!

|Go-To Palettes |

While I know there are extremely nice eyeshadow palettes out on the market today,

(Such as the MAC and Laura Mercier), I love trying to find more affordable products that are in some ways comparable to the more expensive brands. Now there is a definite difference in quality between these products and high-end products, but here are two more affordable palettes that act as a great substitute if you’re looking to save a few bucks!

ºL’oréal La Palette Nude 1This palette retails for only $20 and contains both matte and shimmery shades which allow you to accomplish different looks all with the same palette. It comes with a nice sized mirror and its own eyeshadow brush! (Although, you should know the brush is not the best quality so I tend to use some EcoTools brushes). This palette is perfect for everyday wear and has become one of the staples in my makeup routine!

It is also available for purchase at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.

º Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics: This palette retails for $30 and has the quality of a full-sized Urban Decay palette but is less expensive. This palette contains six matte colors and a nice sized personal mirror. Each and every shade has amazing color payoff and is very blendable and it has become one of my very favorite makeup products. If you’re looking to give yourself a smoky eye for a night out or a softer look for your job, this is the palette for you!

This palette is also available for purchase at Sephora and Ulta!

If you’re looking for a simple way to improve your strength, stamina, and overall health, then look no further! This 30 Day Shred is one of my absolute favorites for a quick and effective at-home workout. Jillian Michaels has a way of motivating me that I hope helps you too! The DVD includes three different 20 minute workouts that go from beginner level strength and stamina to advanced so that you can gradually build your strength as you work out. One of the great things about this program is that you do not need to go out and purchase a lot of equipment to complete these workouts. Jillian combines a focus on strength, cardio, and abs to give you an amazing full body challenge. Comment below your favorite at-home workout!

 I am a firm believer in the importance of working out not necessarily to lose weight but to take care of your body. You are IMPORTANT and you are WORTH IT! Don’t let working out intimidate you. I think you will be shocked at how much peace you will feel emotionally and spiritually when you take care of your physical being. YOU CAN DO IT!

I believe in you.

The 30 Day Shred is also available at Walmart, Barnes and Noble, and Ebay.

| 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.
