Shine Bright Like A Diamond #MirrorMirrorMonday

Monday, May 30

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your long weekend with friends and family! In celebration of all of our Veterans that have served our country and fought for our freedom, I thought it would be fitting to pop some "Champagne" to celebrate!

Now nothing beats a ice cold glass of Veuve but I something that, in my opinion, is just as good if not better! I'm talking about the NEW Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Palette!

I was on a mission to get my hands on these palettes last Thursday and I succeeded! I purchased the Champagne Glow palette as well at the Eye Shadow palette. Oh they did NOT disappoint!

First of all how AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS are these palettes!? They match the aesthetic of my room perfectly! The Champagne Glow palette is one heck of a palette! As Jaclyn describes it it's "meaty" haha! Your precious highlighters feel protected and the palette is the prefect size to travel with you. Here's a look at the eye shadow palette.

The colors are all named after different alcoholic drinks, so fun! The colors complement any skin tone and gives your eyes that beautiful POP. The shade Champagne Toast is the color that Jaclyn came up with and then worked with the lovely people at Becca to pair colors with it to complement the gorgeous golden brown shade. Now it's time for the star if the show!

I can't get over this palette!!!!!! I literally get so excited to open up and use this palette every morning! I'm in LOVE! The pigmentation and formulation of these blushes and highlighters are just heavenly. I love everything in the palette but my favorite shades are Rose Spritz and Prosecco Pop! These palettes will be available for purchase in store on June 16th, so if you can get your hands on them I would HIGHLY recommend it!.

We all know it isn't a party without Jeffree Star! I managed to get my hands on the NEW Skin Frost Highlighter in the shade King Tut! It is this gorgeous golden sand color that'll make your skin glow like Ankhesenamun ;)

I CAN'T!!!! The pigmentation is insane!!! I literally want to cover my whole body in highlighter! This is just one little swipe in the palette and that the amount of color you get!

I am so happy for Jaclyn and Jeffree! They have done an INCREDIBLE job with these products and I cannot wait to see what other amazing things these two have up their sleeves in the future, because you KNOW it'll be good!!

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Thank you so much for stopping by on your day off! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Happy Friday!

Today I am sharing with you some Memorial Day outfit inspo from one of my FAVORITE places to shop, Charming Charlie!

If you couldn't tell from many of my What I Wore Wednesday posts, I find a lot of my #OOTDs from Charming Charlie. They have the best clothes, shoes and accessories for really great prices. I always like to dress up around a holiday. I love coordinating my outfit to the occasion and this store has some of the best items to help pull that effort all together. 

Here are some items on my wish list this Memorial Day and the Fourth of July is right around the corner so these items can be recycled for then as well!

May Glossybox Reveal! #MirrorMirrorMonday

Monday, May 23

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I am going to be sharing with you what I got in my May Glossybox!

Rituals Cosmetics- Shower Foam: This Shower Gel is so cool!! It's almost like shaving cream, it comes out like a clear gel and them foams up. It smells amazing too! This is definitely going to be a product that I purchase the full size of. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth.

Talika- Photo-Hydra Day: This is a nice light weight moisturizer that recreates the the effects of natural light on the skin. I haven't gotten a chance to try this product out out but it seems to have a nice consistency to it and smells nice as well. I will let you know what I think of it.

Nioxin- System 1 Cleanser & Therapy Conditioner: I am very picky when it comes to shampoo and conditioner for my hair. Since my hair is so fine and gets greasy quickly it takes me a while to find something that works for me and like. I am really impressed with this shampoo and conditioner! I actually just placed my Ulta order for the full size products! Not only does it clean my hair well, but the conditioner leaves my scalp feeling all tingly cool and refreshed. Definitely check these products out!

Benefit- Roller Lash Mascara: I love this mascara!!!!! I am so happy that I got a sample size of this because now I can take it in my makeup bag for a little on-the-go mascara. This is such a great product and I would highly recommend this to everyone looking for a new mascara to try.

Adore Cosmetics- Cellmax Elite Facial Serum: This little sample alone makes up for the $21 cost for this Glossybox. The full size of this facial serum retails for $749.95!!! This sample is about $200 worth of product! I haven't had the chance to try this product out yet so I can't say if it's worth the astronomical price tag. I will have to test it out and see if it is anything special.

All in all I was EXTREMELY happy with this month's Glossybox! I got to try out a few new products and found some new loves as well!

Multi-Masking With PTR #FacialFriday

Friday, May 20

Happy Friday!

I don't know about you, but when 5 o'clock rolls around all I can think about is pampering myself after a long stressful week at work. I love using my Friday nights to give myself a facial and indulge in a nice dinner and sweet treat.

Of coarse the first place I go to find the perfect treatment is Sephora. As I was doing my daily patrol of their website I came across this Sephora exclusive mask set from Peter Thomas Roth

I have tried a few things out from this brand before and haven't been disappointed. I have heard a lot of positive things about the brand's masks and have been dying to try them out. The Peter Thomas Roth brand is more of a luxury priced item so this exclusive set gave me the chance to try out a few different masks before splurging on a full size product.

Just Mask It- Sephora Exclusive: The set contains the Irish Moor Mud, 24K Gold Mask & Cucumber Gel Mask.

Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask: This mask is perfect for when you are looking to purify, detoxify and hydrate your skin. This mask is made from mud harvested from the oldest bog known to man, the mineral rich mud helps to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines & winkles and dullness. Don't worry I promise there is no smell so you won't smell like an old Irish bog haha!!

24K Gold Mask- Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask: The sole purpose for purchasing this set was to try this mask out! I have heard so many great things about this mask and couldn't wait to try it out for myself. If you are looking to lift, firm and give your skin that golden glow then this is the treatment for you! This anti-aging mask will help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating the skin as well. If it mask wasn't so pricy I would cover my whole body in it! ;)

Cucumber Gel Mask- Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator: Stay "cool as a cucumber" with this refreshing, calming and moisturizing mask. This is the perfect mask to apply to calm and soothe irritated skin due to sun exposure, peels, waxing, facials and extractions. It's like the ultimate Aloe Vera gel mask! Loaded with tons of calming and nourishing ingredients like chamomile, pineapple, aloe and of coarse cucumber, your skin will thank you for it!

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Let me know if you have tried out any Peter Thomas Roth masks before and which ones are your favorites!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and as always Happy Shopping!!


Ulta Haul #MirrorMirrorMonday

Monday, May 16

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I am sharing with you some new goodies I picked up during a recent trip to Ulta!

Maybelline Master Fix Translucent Setting Powder: This is my beauty secret weapon. This translucent setting powder is only $10 and it works like a dream! This powders so finely milled and keeps my face looking flawless all day. When I find this powder I stock up on it because it's usually sold out! This product is a must buy.

NYX Sculpt & Highlight Brow Pencil- I have really been liking this brow pencil. I love the way it fills on my brows but the light end of it helps to clean up and highlight the brow bone as well. Another $10 buy you can't beat. It comes in multiple shades as well so there is a color for everyone.

Philosophy Pure Grace Summer- This perfume smells like Summer in a bottle! It almost smells like a super yummy sunscreen with a beautiful mix of citrus, coconut water, sandalwood and vanilla! You'll smell like a beach goddess!

NYX Pump It Up Lip Plumper (Elizabeth)- Oh look, Christina bought another nude lip gloss HAHA! I really have an obsession with nude tone glosses, I have a cosmetic case full of them on my vanity! This is another pretty lip gloss from NYX. I wouldn't say that it plumps your lips but it nourishes them for a softer more full look to your lips.

IT Cosmetics CC+ Bronzer- Another WIN from IT Cosmetics! So during the summer I use a self tanner on my body but I don't use anything on my face. So in order to match my face to my neck I have to use a darker foundation. When I saw that IT Cosmetics came out with a CC+ Bronzer I knew I had to get it! It works like a DREAM! I love the coverage, it has an SPF of 50+ as well as peptides to nourish the skin and it has a little bit of a sparkle to make your skin looked sun kissed!

Tarte Tarteist Mascara- I had gotten a few samples of this mascara and just after one use I knew that I would eventually buy the full size once my samples ran out. I love the way this mascara fan outs my lashes and love the length and coverage it give as well! I just love the Tarte brand, they never seem to disappoint and have such a great selection of products. 

Here's a look at all of these products in action ;) 

Instant Bronzed Glow, ready for the Summer!

Thank you all so much for stopping by and as always happy shopping!


Cruelty Free Skincare #FacialFriday

Friday, May 13

Happy Friday the 13th! 

Also Happy Birhtday to ME!!!!! Today is my 28th birthday! Fun fact I was actually born on a Friday the 13th ;) 

As promised on Monday, today I will be sharing with you my favorite Cruelty Free Skincare products as part of today's #FacialFriday.
I am all about a good skincare routine and as important it is to me to put the right products into my body, it's also so important to me as to what I put on my body. So with out further adieu, here are my favorite skincare products!


Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser- This is my morning cleanser. I love using this after a restful night sleep to wash way any product I used the night before and to prep my skin for makeup application. It also smells amazing! It contains strawberry seed oil so you know this Strawberry Blond had to get it haha! This cleanser helps to hydrate, tighten, firm and brighten your complexion. It can also be used as a chemical exfoliator. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse away for a clear complexion.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm- I use this cleanser as part of my nightly double cleanse. It is the consistency of coconut oil and once applied to your skin it gently melts into an oil that takes off all your makeup. This stuff works wonders! I do tend to OVER use this cleanser haha i love it so much! I seem to go through it quickly so I have to manage how I use it. I would highly recommend this cleansing balm! 

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Cleansing Gel- This is part two to my double cleanse. A few months ago I seemed to be having an issue with getting oily around my nose area. Since using this cleanser that problem has completely gone away! It has a soft, refreshing citrus scent and really helps to get rid of that last bit of makeup.

Treatments and Moisturizers

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask- Yes this is not the full size of this product, it was a sample I got from Sephora with a recent purchase, but after just one use of this mask, I will most definitely be placing my order for the full size! I have heard a lot about the Tata Harper brand and have always wanted to try something from the line. I love trying out different treatment masks and this one looked so interesting! It defiantly didn't disappoint! The Beta Hydroxy acid helps to gently resurface your skin for an instant glowing complexion.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Drink of H2O Moisturizer- Most AMAZING moisturizer I have ever used! It is so lightweight and refreshing and leaves my skin feeling awesome all day! It doesn't make me greasy at all and makes my skin feel super soft. It is a water gel consistency so it is cooling upon application as well, which is great for the hot summer days ahead!

Remember to keep an eye out for these symbols so you know which products are cruelty free, vegan and not tested on animals :)

I hope you all enjoyed today's post! Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Enjoy your weekend, happy shopping and happy Friday the 13th!
