March Ipsy Goodies | FLORAL FANTASY

A few months ago it was requested I do a monthly ipsy video on my YouTube channel. I had a good go with it until this month. Unfortunately ipsy sent my bag super late this month, shame shame...just kidding shiz happens and they were super quick on getting back to me when I emailed them wondering where my monthly goodies were. 

SO! Because it was sent late and I wanted to test out the products before sharing my opinions I figured I would embrace the change of my bag getting here late and change it up with a blog post rather then a video. 

If you want to see what other goodies i've received each month I have created an ipsy playlist you can check out HERE! 

Lets get started. 

This months theme is FLORAL FANTASY which I am all about. The bag is cute for summer & its well made which is always a plus! Now to the actual goodies...

Products

1. Pur-Lisse cleanser & makeup remover: I am officially a fan of this brand, one month ipsy sent a sunscreen from this same company and I loved it! They have some fun ingredients which I totally dig, for example...blue lotus, white tea, & soy proteins. I am always skeptical of a cleanser that claims to also remove makeup but this one is great! This would be a great product for your summer vacations because its a two in one which makes packing easier. 

2. Crown Brush Oval Concealer Brush (C224): I have never used a concealer brush, so this I am super excited about. The brush is perfect for the under eyes and I loved the way my concealer looked after using it. Definitely makes a difference! I also love getting tools from ipsy as it changes it up and adds some essentials to your makeup collection. Good tools make all the difference! After using this I would recommend a concealer brush to everyone & anyone who want to take their concealer game to the next level! 

3. NYX butter lipstick: This is one of my all time favorite ipsy products i've ever received. First off, I LOVE NYX. Second their butter glosses are some of my all time favorite lip glosses, and third they are so inexpensive which makes me, my wallet, and my hubby happy. This lipstick is awesome, its super long lasting and moisturizing. The color is gorgeous and it stays on even when doing things like eating/drinking. YAY! I want to get a few more in different colors so I have a kick ass lipstick collection. These are seriously amazing.

4. VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind Illuminating Face Highlighter: I wish this was a little bigger since its a face highlighter but it also makes a great eyeshadow which in that case it would be considered full size! I compare this highlighter to the "tarte park ave. princess" contour pallet. Its basically a cooler (color wise) version of the highlighter in that pallet. Pigment is great, its got such a pretty shimmer to it, and a baby touch of pink perfect for those cheekbones. 

5. St. Ives apricot scrub: I love anything apricot/peachy smelling so this ones right up my ally smell wise. I haven't used this one yet so I cant really share my overall opinion other then it smells good and the bottle says its 100% natural which I dig.

Overall this month was pretty great. I am always shocked that its only $10 and I got 5 different goodies that are not only great but definitely equal out to be more then $10.

As always much love to all of you babes!

Life Lately

Yo. Its been a while. 

I'll be honest, lately I have felt super uninspired. Sometimes that happens and its ok, its a good time to give yourself a break and find new inspiration. Ive got some magic in the works that will hopefully be happening early April, stay tuned...

Although I haven't felt super inspired by anything I have kept fairly busy. I joined a yoga studio a month-ish ago and i've been going fairly consistently (more on that later).

Ive added some artwork to my house along with some plants and bright pillows. Its necessary for me to change up my environment every so often, change is good.

I swear every time I re-organize my house I fall in love with my home all over again. New surroundings keep the vibes flowing and bright colors make me happy. Along with adding some life to my home, i've done some serious spring cleaning. I took all the items out of my closet and thoroughly went through each individual piece. Cleaning out my closet not only made me feel like Eminem but it felt good to get rid of crap that I wasn't using. It makes me feel more open! Along with cleaning out my closet, I deep cleaned and organized the main part of my house as well as my very busy basement which was starting to look like a thrift store. 

Ive been trying to drink more water lately and eat seriously clean meals throughout the day. Ive incorporated some new breakfast items into my menu, ive also got a delicious morning green smoothie you can check out HERE! 

I've replaced my morning coffee with tea from "Your Tea". Ive been drinking "Her Tea" in the mornings and "Sleep Tea" at night to help me sleep. Obviously. Both of which are awesome and I would highly recommend. Coffee has become a Tuesday tradition and a snack on the weekends. 

Dogs are doing wonderful as always, our home is always filled with snuggles, treats, and play time. I love having three sweet furry babies. They bring so many smiles to life. 

My dear friend Summer came home from serving a church mission. She's such a babe and gave one of the greatest talks i've ever heard! I missed her dearly while she was away. We had some pretty great times together before she went on her spiritual journey. 

My sweet grandma is having a hard time lately. She's been struggling a lot health wise and needs all the good vibes, prayers, love, smiles, and laughter she can get. She has played such a key part in my life the last 6 years I feel so incredibly blessed and grateful to have her as my grandma. I have to remind myself that the only consistent thing in life is that its not consistent. Change happens, life happens, and unfortunately death happens. Hold your loved ones tight and count your blessings. There are so many things to be grateful for. 

And thats life lately. What have you been up to? Whats new? Whats happening? How are you doing? 

I hope you know how much I appreciate you. I hope you know how much I love that I have this platform to express myself and although there might be times I don't blog for a while I will always be back. I love you, I appreciate you, I hope you are having a lovely weekend. 

ALSO! I created a spotify playlist of music I have been loving lately. Music makes everything better, hope you enjoy it. Click HERE to listen to some sweet sounds. 

Much love!
