Hello! Can’t believe it is Wednesday already… this week is flying by with promise of Friday being right around the corner! I wanted to continue my beauty series for you all to enjoy.. please let me know what you think! I have been trying to lay low the last few day’s it has been so cold outside… just makes me want to snuggle and watch movies all day… I plan to make some homemade chili and perhaps a lasagna to get us through this cold weather… comfort food and soup always make me feel better! Hope you are all enjoying your week and have some fun activities planned for the weekend ahead!
Purity- my go to facial cleanser… I have been using this for a few years and I love the way it makes my skin feel… helps manage breakout’s and leaves skin feeling so soft!
Glam Glow- Amazing! This mud mask is truly amazing… when you put it on and see it cleaning out your pores right before your eye’s it’s just so crazy to actually see. It is a bit expensive but worth every penny in my opinion… who doesn’t love clear skin!
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse is perfect to hide those pesky blemishes and just even the tone of your face… I use this in problem area’s and the coverage is flawless… it blends so well with my skin tone and feels so light and fluffy… stay’s on well for all day coverage!
After I have treated and cleansed my face I like to add a bit of color… I am a huge believer in high SPF on my face at all times in the sun… so when I tan my face is still way lighter than my body- I use Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess to even my face/neck out to match the tone of my body… it leaves a hint of shimmer and just makes me smile… easy way to make everything blend!
That’s it for today! Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again soon!

Hello Darling, I am going to get a little serious today so bear with me please… just something that has been on my mind a lot lately and I thought I would share. This is no one’s opinion but my own…I have come to a point in my life that I realized it is time to stop focusing on the negative and appreciate the positive. We often dwell on things that are out of our control making it easy to fixate on them causing us to spiral downward into a depression like state… we all have things that happen in life that are not expected. Losing a job, car breaking down, someone breaking into your home, losing a loved one… no one enjoys these sorrows… but unfortunately they are just a part of life… we have to try our best to move past and get on with our lives. This is not always easily done. Lately I have found myself dwelling and focusing on the negative… I stop take a breath and think of something that makes me smile… in that moment hold onto that feeling and remember that you only live once… make it count. Make life something that you enjoy. Stop dwelling and appreciate all the good things in life, and try to block out the bad… tell yourself I want to be happy. My life is not a movie, I am a real person with emotions and I want to do my best to make my life count. Make it your own- we are all unique individuals, yet we all strive to be alike… don’t be afraid to stand out. Make yourself proud and others will follow your positive energy. We can all take a few steps forward and together we can change the way we live!

Hey! Today I am excited to share it is day 60 of my no heat plan!! Still moving forward and loving the results… I am going to put myself out there for you all today… I have one of my night routines… which includes photo’s with no makeup… yes that is right… I am including photo’s with no makeup for the world to see… I have been breaking out due to going from the harsh winter to sunny warm Mexico for the last 2 weeks, getting home to the cold also means a shock to your skin… drying everything out and causing breakouts. I am usually pretty lucky in that department, but I am only human and breakout’s do happen… thank’s for stopping by darling! Enjoy!
On dry hair (preferably not newly washed) I coated my roots to tips with a mixture of half organic coconut oil/half olive oil… olive oil helping with silk and shine and dryness- coconut oil for moistening and protective coating (I am in no way an expert this is just in my own opinion) after coating I placed in a bun and covered for a minimum of 30 min… the longer you leave it the better!
After at least 30 min- wash hair with light shampoo and conditioner… brush out gently with a wide toothed comb, next divide hair into 2 sections and braid each side in a loose french braid… after which I cross over my head and pin to keep in place overnight…
Sorry no makeup and ridiculous hair calls for a crazy facial expression (please forgive me!)
Finish your nightly routine apply acne spot treatment, toner, moisturizer etc. Get your beauty ZZZZZZ’s and wake up feeling fresh and rejuvenated : ) Fast forward to the morning and start your routine… make-up applications, moisturizer, leaving your hair braided until your ready for the day! Take out the braids and comb through with fingers and enjoy! Loving this easy no heat, no product hair style!
Have a great rest of your day!

Part 1:: Beauty Series::
Hello Darling’s! Happy Monday to you all! I am sorry for being a bit MIA the last few weeks- Cory and I were in beautiful Puerto Vallarta MEXICO for a 2 week vacation! More on that to come :) I do want to share with you today a few of my go to beauty item’s- on vacation and everyday use back at home… I am trying so hard to get back into the swing of thing’s- it is soooo cold here! Hope you all had a lovely Valentines day and a great weekend- Cory and I stayed in and snuggled watching movies, just wanting to relax after the trip, made some steaks and veggies and I was at home- it felt good!! Enough of my babbling…
First is this amazing Paul Mitchell Texturizing Sea Spray- this was perfect to help me stick to my NO HEAT :) and made for an easy transition from the beach to nightlife!
Velocity- my go-to light-weight moisturizer since I was in high school- I love this Mary Kay product you don’t need much of it and its sooo light to wear…
Ulta Blue Bayou eye shadow… perfect for just a hint of color… when I am traveling I like to keep my makeup light during the day- sunscreen is usually my main product- but I like to add a little pop of color to help my eye’s stand out!
This is my go to MAC eyeliner brush- I use this when applying Blue Bayou as just a liner/pop of color!
Lancôme- Vintage Rose Lipstick- sticking with the minimum makeup look- this helps my lips from drying out and adds just a nice touch of color at the same time!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
