She's Got 'IT', Yeah Baby She's Got 'IT'!

Happy Friday darlings!

I cannot believe we are at the last Friday in January! Where is the time going! 

Today I am going to be sharing with you my latest obsession. It's from none other than the amazing brand It Cosmetics! As I mention in last Friday's post, I would be reviewing the brands first ever moisturizer. Called Confidence in a Cream, that's exactly what this super cream is! 


Jamie Kern Lima, the CEO and Co-Founder of It Cosmetics, has worked for years along side dermatologists and plastic surgeons to create this line of beauty products. All of her products take into mind people who have skin issues as well as sensitive skin. With that being said this super cream has been formulated for all skin types and it is mean to transform your skin and rewind the hands of time. Jamie and her team worked for SEVEN years to come up with an perfect this 
product and it is defiantly worth the wait!


At first application you can visibly see the difference in your skin. This Anti-Aging Armour makes fines line virtually disappear!! I couldn't believe my eyes! After using it for a few weeks I've notice a difference in the overall appearance of my skin too. My pores appear smaller, my lines on my forehead are less noticeable and my skin tone is more even! I would bath in this cream if I could! 


If you remember my post from a month or two ago, I wrote about my nightly skin care routine. At the time I was using seven, yes seven skin care products during my nightly routine! Thanks to this cream I now only use THREE!! It has replaced every serum, every treatment and every moisturizer that I was using! I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone and everyone! My mom is even using it now and is LOVING her results! Give 'IT' a try for yourself ;)

Have a beautiful weekend!

January Glossybox #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Here in New York we were hit with a huge snow storm so I spent my Saturday night shoveling the 16 inches of snow in my driveway haha glad that's over!

Today I am do a Reveal and Review of my January Glossybox. If you are new to my blog and don't know what Glossybox is, it is a monthly subscription service that sends you everything from hair products to make up to body lotions all for $22/month. The products that you get in the box definitely make up and cover the cost of what you spend for the box. Plus they aren't little samples of products! They are either luxury size samples or full size products!

Here's a peek at what I got this month......


I really do love the box themselves. Not only are they so pretty but they are good boxes too! I like to use them for extra organizational storage in my dresser and nightstand drawers.



First up is this clarifying treatment from Beautiful Nutrition. It smells like lemons! This is a great treatment to use one to two times a week to help get rid of excess shampoo build up. After shampooing and conditioning saturate your hair thoroughly and let sit for 30 seconds and rinse off. My hair is so squeaky clean and refreshed! I am a big fan of this product.


Next is this foot nourishing cream from -417. This product is packed with water from the Dead Sea and aloe vera to keep you tootsies nice and soft this winter season. It has a nice soft scent to it. I actually have been using it for a hand cream haha, if it can keep my feet soft then why not show my hands some love and care too ;)


Next up I got this Diamond Heart primer from Emite Make Up. I have gotten other products from this brand and I haven't been disappointed and this primer definitely lived up to my expectations. This primer helps to prep the skin for makeup and provide a natural glow that helps to even out skin tine and minimize imperfections.




Next up is this Lip Glide velvet finish lip color from MeMeMe in the shade Playful Peach. This is a beautiful lip product. The color is actually a lot brighter than the picture portrays it. It really gets me in the mood for warmer weather ;)



Las but not least is this Royal Apothic Cream Creme. This moisturizing body creme is formulated with milk proteins and lactic acid that help to gently exfoliate your skin as well as hydrate. I got mine in the scent Cutting Garden. I smells like I'm in a beautiful flourishing English Garden. So pretty!

Thank you all for stopping by! Have a great week!

It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's........

SUPERGIRL! 

Or in today's case SUPERHERO Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara from It Cosmetics haha! 

Let me tell you, this mascara has changed my whole makeup world! If you don't know by now, the number one makeup item I can't live without is mascara. My lashes are very fair so I really like to wear mascara, it makes me feel complete ;) 

If you haven't tried anything from It Cosmetics yet, I HIGHLY recommend you trying this brand out! Pretty much every makeup brand that I have been using has been replaced by It Cosmetics! Stay tuned to my blog in the upcoming weeks because I will be sharing with you all the amazing products from this brand including a review on their latest and first ever moisturizer! :)

Here we go.....


What makes this wand so amazing is the variation of bristles on the brush. They are all cut at different lengths making it easy to grab onto every single lash. Your lashes go through a two week growing growing cycle, so you constantly have lashes falling out, growing in and growing up. Since your lashes are always going to be at different growth cycles, you need a brush that has different length bristles to grab every lash at every stage. One coat of this mascara and you will want to throw out every other mascara you own! 


The results truly speak for themselves! This is just ONE coat!! My lashes are stretched to 
"infinity and beyond!" Jamie Kern Lima, the CEO and co-creator of It Cosmetics worked with an ophthalmologist to create this mascara to ensure the nature of its ingredients making it great even for people with eye sensitivity.


Thank you all for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!

Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats #TastyTuesday

Happy Tasty Tuesday!

Today I am going to be sharing with you a quick and easy recipe I use to meal prep my breakfast for the week. I love making overnight oats because it is such an great healthy breakfast option for when you are on the go. Plus this recipe only calls for 5 simple ingredients! I usually make a fresh batch on Sunday night and it'll last me though the week. 

Chocolate Coconut Overnight Oats

2 cups of Rolled Oats

1/4 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

2 scoops of Chocolate protein powder

1/2 Tbs. of Chia Seeds

2 cups of Unsweetened Coconut Milk

Combine all ingredients in a deep dish and cover.


 Place in the refrigerator overnight to let the oats rise and soak up the liquid. In the morning scoop out 1/2 cup serving and microwave until warm. 
I love topping mine with a sliced up banana :) This will keep you nice and full until lunchtime!

Thank you all for stopping by! Happy cooking :)

All Eyes on You #MirrorMirrorMonday

Happy Monday my pretties!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Today I am going to sharing with you what I got in my January Ipsy bag. This months theme was all about your eyes. Clearly that can be seen from the bag itself!


How cute is this retro mod themed bag?! It's like an Andy Warhol take on a cosmetic bag ;)


Here's a closer look at what I got.


First up is this Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus Eye Serum. This eye serum came just in time, I just run out of my eye cream and I needed something to hold over until I got to Walgreens :) This serum is nice and light weight. It's only been a week but the results seem promising :)


Next up is the Mr. Write (Now) eye liner crayon from The Balm. I got mine in the shade Scott which is a nice deep brown color. The tip is very skinny and has a twist top so when the liner gets low you can just twist up the crayon. No need for a sharpener! This liner really stays put too so there's no fear of your eye liner smudging. 



I received a crease brush from Beau G√Ęchis. I like this brush. The bristles are shorter making it easier to blend out the color in your crease. This pair perfectly with the next item I got.





Next up is this beautiful creme eyeshadow from Hikari in the shade Mink. This color is a pretty taupe brown color. The texture of this eyeshadow is so nice as well! It goes onto the lid so smoothly and blends out really well.



Last but not least is this organic lip balm from Lasting Smiles. I got mine in the scent peppermint creme. Not only does this balm keep my lips hydrated but the minty scent keeps me smelling fresh ;) But even more importantly is that with every purchase of this lip balm, some of the proceeds go to Smile for a Cause which helps fund cleft surgeries for children. How amazing is that!? 

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Thanks for stopping by!
