Birthday!

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday but it was my brothers birthday! He just turned 19 and it is soooo weird I still think of him being 9 years old. But because of his birthday I wasn't able to post anything yesterday and probably will only be able to post this today. I hope you all are having a great weekend!!

Favorite Post-Workout Snack!

So since I have been working out I have been really enjoying peanut butter and banana toast after I am done. It is tasty and not that bad for you. Plus, it isn't to heavy to eat since sometimes my tummy gets upset after I workout. I just wanted to share this with you all and I want to hear what your post-workout snack!

Much Love!

Favorite Summer Nail Polish!!

I have recently been venturing out of my normal color for nails lately from my dark blues and reds into more light and bright summer colors and I have finally found some I really enjoy. Right now I am into Mint colors on nails and found one by Revlon called Minted that is prefect for me! Also, to go with it in the one nail painted differently trend I found a great yellow by Revlon called Sunshine Sparkle which goes amazing with the Mint color.

  
I am always looking for suggestions on colors. What is you favorite color for summer?

Passion Iced Tea Lemonade!


I am obsessed with this drink! If any of you follow me on twitter you know I got one the other day. I went to Kroger today with my mom for some groceries and found the passion ICED tea bags. I am soo excited and I already have a batch in the fridge getting nice and cold ^_^. I didn't add a whole lot of sugar because I don't like my cold tea being SUPER sweet plus I thought if I wanted it sweeter I could add more later. This drink is so refreshing during the hot summer months and tastes so delicious!

What is your favorite drink?

Much Love,

Little Black Bag



I know that many of you have heard of the company Little Black Bag and how amazing they are, but just in case you haven't I wanted to share the brilliant idea of this company with you! Little Black Bag is something I am dying to try very soon, but because I am still looking for a job that may not happen for a while. But even though I haven't tried it yet I wanted to share my opinion on the concept and a bit of how it works.

So basically the way LBB works is you sign up for the site and take a survey about things that interest you in the fashion and beauty world so they can get to know a bit about you and what items to suggest. Then you look through all of the amazing items from designers like Betsy Johnson and Steve Madden. You select one item you like and then they suggest two other which you will see once you purchase.

Once you had purchased your items then they allow you to trade items you have in your bag with others! This allows you and other customers to get exactly what you want. This is amazing because sometimes programs like this you don't know what you are getting and then you may not like it, but LBB takes care of those issues and allows you to make some more choices! Overall, this program is brilliant and I can NOT wait until I can make my first purchase with LBB!

Have you used LBB? Let me know I would love to hear about your experience!

BIC Soleil Savvy Razor Review




Before I start this review I want to be transparent and say that I am a bzzagent and received samples and coupons for this product. However, all opinions are my own and I was not paid to do this review.

I have to say when I was informed I would be getting a BIC razor to review I was a bit skeptical. I have used a different version before and the results were less then par compared to others I have used. However, I tried this one out just for the heck of it and oh..my..gosh..I am loving it! The quality of this razor is definitely up there with other name brand razors. The BIC Soleil Savvy razor is adorable first off because it is pink and has rubber gripping which is nice because it won't slip out of your hand when shaving. It has three blades which is nice and looks similar to the other name brands. However, something that concerns me about this razor is that even though it comes with three replacement heads you cannot go out and purchase more when you run out. It is still a disposable razor so once the heads run out you can throw it away. Now, I think this is a bit strange and I don't really understand it from my own perspective. Other then that I really like this razor so far and hopefully the heads will last as long as the other name brands. I will let you know how long the sharpness of the blades last in a later post, but for now this is definitely something I would suggest, and have suggested, to friends and family.

Let me know what razor you use and if you have tried this one!

Much Love,

Tuesday Tip! - Coffee Body Scrub

Today's tip is a coffee body scrub that you can do at home with just a few simple ingredients! All you need is:

Coffee Grounds
Olive Oil
Sugar (Whatever kind you feel is going to create the best scrub for you)


After you have all your ingredients add some coffee, about a cup or so, to your container. This is something that is done to taste, metaphorically, so just add as much as you think is best for you.


Next add your sugar, about two big tablespoons, to the same container I used organic raw sugar because I like rougher scrubs.


Next, add as much olive oil as you feel your body would need to be moisturized.


Last, mix is all together and you are finished!! This will keep in the fridge for about a week and then you will need to get rid of it. Also, please don't let a whole lot of coffee go don't your drain or you will cause drainage issues.


Have any of your own scrub recipes? Let me know I love finding new ideas!

Much Love,

Hopefully some of you are going on a trip soon and I would LOVE to hear were to! Trips can be so relaxing and super fun with friends and family.

Ebay shopping!!

I did some shopping the other day on ebay and got some great pieces which should be delivered at some point soon and I am so happy! I got two gorgeous bracelets, see below, which are goldish in there tint and edgy. I love them so much and am sooo excited to do an actual video haul when they get here! I got both pieces for around $7 total and free shipping on both! Ebay is a great way to shop, but as a fellow blogger Rachel has stated, and something I really learned from, is that you need to go in knowing what you want and search specifically.

Much Love,

New Camera!!

I finally took the leap and bought a new camera. I wanted something that wasn't too expensive, but was still higher quality and could take HD. I researched a lot and found one for like $179 at walmart but got it cheaper on amazon! I am super excited to try the Fujifilm FinePix S3280 it is a long zoom camera with HD video and 24x zoom. I am beyond happy because I think that I will love this and it will serve my needs for the time being. Also, this means hopefully more videos! I am still trying to build my desk but it is taking long than expected.


What camera do you use?

Much Love,

Kroger Haul! Vitamins!!

So I went to Krogers today to get some vitamins!!! I got some vitamin D, a multivitamin, primrose oil, omega 3-6-9, and folic acid. I am afraid of the folic acid though and overdosing so I am going to be careful for a bit when taking it! Any of you take vitamins?


Much Love, 
 

Motivation Monday

So for this Motivation Monday I thought that I would do a DIY project I am about to work on and inspire you to take this Monday to come up with your own DIY projects! So I am about to have my dad help me build a desk so I can have a place to put my makeup and a place to start potentially vlogging from (fingers crossed). I will be posting more blogs about it so you can see it in progress and maybe do it as well! Also, let me know what your DIY projects are I would love to know what everyone is up too!

Sunday's Best...

Garnier BB Cream Review!

So with it being summer and makeup meltdown season in full swing I have been loving Garnier's BB Cream. It is super lightweight, gives a natural look, and tends to not meltdown through these hot summer days! It has an interesting fragrance which I really enjoy because it makes me feel that more feminine and girly. Also, since I am usually really pale but get some color in the summer I hate having to purchase more expensive foundations and this is nice because since it is light/medium and medium/dark and tends to blend better with the change of my skin.


I wanted to upload real pictures of the product I purchased instead of images I got from the web and I also wanted to add ones of the product on my skin to show what it looks like.


It looks SUPER different then my actual skin tone above but as you can see it isn't as drastic in the below, plus my face has more contact with sun so it is more tan then my hand.


It doesn't really do anything to prevent my skin from getting oily, but I have come to accept that especially during the summer my face is going to be oily no matter what products I use. I was able to get this product for $9.00 at my local Kroger which was a dollar or two cheaper then Target or Walmart, around $11.00, when I got it. However, I have had this for over a month and the price might have changed since then. This is for sure something I would recommend to those looking for a cheaper BB Cream then the high end ones out there for the summer.

Please note however, that some skin tones I have noticed don't take to the product as well as others so keep that in mind. This is something I plan to keep in my collection of makeup as long as I am able to.

Much Love,
