•full face of makeup i want•

Hello everyone!!

As I was thinking of new posts for 2018, this was one of my favorites! I’m going to be showing you a full face of products that I really want to try. Please tell me if you have tried any of these and if they are worth it or not.

Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter

I love the Becca brand. As soon as I saw one of my favorite youtubers talk about this, I wanted it so bad. From what I know, it’s suppose to refresh and energize your skin and create a really dewy base. It’s just so gorgeous!!

Lush Color Supplement Jackie Oates

First of all, I love the lush brand. I love that it’s all natural and cruelty free. I’m not into super heavy coverage foundation. I usually looks for something that’s going to give really light coverage and just cover up any redness I have.

Nars Creamy concealer

Nars is such a good brand and I’m super picky over my concealers. Again I like lighter coverage. I mostly look for something to cover my dark under-eyes.

Coty Airspun Powder

If you watch any beauty video on YouTube, you’ll probably come across someone talking about this powder. The only thing I’m not sure about is if it’s cruelty free or not. If it’s not I’m not interested, if anyone knows please let me know!

Too Faced Chocolate Soliele Bronzer

My sister has this bronzer and honestly it’s so pretty! It gives the perfect shadow effect to your cheekbones. Also it smells like hot chocolate which is always a plus.

Physicians Formula Glow Booster

Again, one of my favorite youtubers talked about this and I honestly want it so badly!! I’m a highlighter fiend. The more blinding the better. Also, I love that you can combine the colors or use them as is.

Essence Make Me Brow

I have naturally really dark and thick eyebrows. I still really enjoy filling them in, I love the elf eyebrow pencil, but sometimes that just takes way too long. Plus, this is really inexpensive, so that’s always good.

ABH Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette

I mean just look at it!! The colors are so beautiful, especially since I’m all about warm tones. Ever youtuber talks about how amazing this is and I have wanted it since it came out!!

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

I’ve tried the better than sex mascara and honestly I wasn’t impressed by the formula, but I love the wand.This has a really similar wand and I’ve heard it’s a really good formula as well. I tried buying this from Sephora a couple months ago, but apparently they don’t sell Stila products anymore. Ughhhhh.

NYX Slip Tease Lip Oil

This color is Bang Bang. In the winter my lips are always chapped so I tend to use tinted oils and lip balms. This is just a really beautiful color. NYX always has amazing lip products so I’m sure this is no different.

•Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

I always have trouble with makeup staying on my face. I’ve heard this really does keep on for forever. I’ve never used a setting spray before so I really want to get this!!

Have you tried any of these products? What products are on your wishlist? I hope you guys enjoyed!! See you next Monday!

•my new years resolutions•

EDIT: I was originally going to post this on Jan 1st, but something went wrong with my WiFi and never posted. So it’s a little late but hope you enjoy!!

Hello y’all !

Happy New Year! I genuinely can’t believe it’s already 2018. I’ve recently been thinking a lot about the coming year. I realized how I’m always so disappointed at the end of year, no matter how fun it was, I feel as if I haven’t changed. I, obviously, want to change. I want to learn and grow. This year my biggest goal is to improve my life in every possible way. To be genuinely happy. I’m hoping these resolutions will get me there!

Drink more water

I’m honestly the worst at remembering to drink water throughout the day. I did get an adorable water bottle for Christmas so I’m hoping that will help

Go completely gluten free and eat healthier

This year I’ve learned that I have a gluten sensitivity. It just makes me feel gross. I’ve been off and on eating gluten free and eating healthy foods so I really want to go all in this year.

Take care of myself more

I’m really bad at keeping my things clean, doing laundry and the small things like taking care of my nails etc. This year I just would like to improve on that.

Go outside

I realized I just do not go outside enough which is not good! Even just a walk for 10 minutes is enough, I sometimes forget how wonderful fresh air is.

Read 100 books

I love books! I have trouble finishing them though. If you have any book recommendations please leave them below!!

Spend time with Jesus everyday

I’ve been having trouble keeping a strong relationship, or any relationship at all with Jesus the last couple months. I just haven’t wanted to. I also really want to ask more questions and learn more about my beliefs. Also, I really want to do more research and see what the Bible says about some of my opinions:)

Volunteer

I think volunteering is so so important. I’m hoping I can find an animal shelter to help out at, if not I’ll probably volunteer at my church!

And those are most of my resolutions. I actually have a bunch and it would take so so long to write them all out. I’m hoping to actually stick to these though! I’ll keep you updated! I’m hoping to have one or two goals each months so I can finish all my resolutions. I might do like an update at the end of every month and tell you about my goals that month and how I did or didn’t complete them!!

•if you were at my house on christmas morning•

Merry Christmas!

And happy holidays if you don’t celebrate Christmas! Wow, it’s finally here. Now to be honest, it’s actually not Christmas when I’m writing this. It’s the 21, I think? Anyway, since this is my favorite day of the year I was trying to think of the best blog post. Because, it’s Christmas! So, I was originally going to do a day in the life on Christmas Eve, but I had this idea last night as I was trying to fall asleep(which is when I have my best ideas)

It’s always crazy to me how different people celebrate each holiday. So, I thought, why don’t I tell you about a typical Christmas morning in my household!

I wake up with a start, it takes a second and then all of the excitement that has been building up for 365 days comes rushing towards me all at once. Looking over at the clock on my bookshelf I realize it’s 6 am. One hour and thirty minutes until the knock on my door giving me the freedom to run downstairs. I slip out of bed carefully, not wanting to wake up my ten year old cousin asleep next to me. I plug in my Christmas lights and snuggle back in my bed. I do whatever I can to make the time go by as quickly as possible.

I hear the knock, I run to the door and race downstairs. I stop in the kitchen. I hear a chorus of “Merry Christmas” coming from all around me. I return the gesture and request to go into our living room. I’m politely denied and told that I must wait till everyone is here. I wait impatiently. After what seems like ages, everyone is herded into the kitchen. I, again, ask to go into the living room. As soon as I hear the word, I race into the living room.

Once I step foot into the magical room, I see the presents under the tree, the stockings filled to the brim, and the treasures left on the couches by the big man himself. I stand there in awe. Taking it all in. I give my parents a big hug. Everyone files into the room, my Grandma hands out the stockings, we laugh as we tear through them. Showing everyone the weird, funny, or amazing things in our stockings.

I hop up from my spot in the floor and get a mug from the cabinet. I pour myself some coffee. Grabbing the milk, eggnog and a spoon. I put in a spoonful of sugar, a dash of eggnog, and a bit of milk. I go back into the living room. I put down my mug and start passing out presents. We start with my cousin, then me, then my sister, then my brother, then my other brother, then my sister-in-law, then my uncle, then my aunt, then my mom, then my dad, then my grandpa, then my grandma. Then we start again. We do that for most of the morning

After a couple hours, when the presents have all been opened, I take a deep breath and hop up to help with breakfast. I set the table, pop the cinnamon rolls in the oven. Once breakfast has been devoured by my family and me, my cousin and I play with what we had been given.

And that’s my Christmas morning! I hope you all enjoyed. Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday season!

•winter pamper routine•

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry for not posting last week and that this post is going up a little late, hope you can forgive me! Anyway, I think in winter we are all wanting to pamper a little bit more. I personally would much rather have a warm bubble bath when it’s snowing outside then in the middle of summer. Since it’s also Christmas, it makes the pamper nights even better! So, here is what I do when I’m in the mood to relax and treat myself!

clean up!

Ok this one sounds a little weird, but I actually relax by cleaning! It doesn’t matter how warm the bath is or how cozy my pajamas are if my room is a wreck. Forget it. I’m stressed, all I can think about is the mess. I just do a little tidy up everywhere to keep my mind at ease.

shower

I can’t take a bath without showering first, again weird, but I find it annoying to have to shave or actually bathe in the bath. The Jason’s body wash has been my absolute favorite recently! Also, I like to wash my hair during a pamper night and I cannot do that in a bathtub. So, I just take a little longer in the shower and get myself super squeaky clean!

prep the bath

This is honestly one of my fave parts. It takes awhile for my bath to fill up so I get all the bath products together and get myself a drink, which is usually water because the only warm drink I like is coffee which I don’t think is the best thing to drink when you’re trying to wind down.

bath time!

Yay! My favorite time of the night! I love this part because I really just sit there. I will watch YouTube or catch up on some blog posts I’ve missed. I love just laying in the warm, yummy smelling water. (Sorry for the poor picture quality, I just snapped a quick picture while I was in the bath)

skincare

I love skincare. If you guys want me to do a separate post on my routine and tips for clear skin I would really love to do that! I actually make most of my products, like face wash, facial scrub, moisturizer and eye brightening serum. I’ve just started testing them out and if they work well, I will definitely talk about them in a separate post!

•Christmas movie

I loveee Christmas movies. I feel like I haven’t watch as many this year so the few days I have left to watch them I’m trying to fit as many as I can in. Also, while I’m watching I do like to enjoy a sneaky little treat, typically some flavor of ice cream or Christmas cookies

•get ready for bed

This is where I will brush my teeth, take out my contacts, have a quick stretch, fill my waterbottle with water, and fill my essential oil diffuser. I just recently started diffusing oils again and I now remember why I was so obsessed! At nighttime I will typically use the sleep aid oil from Vereditas.

•read

I love to read and it’s something I always try to do before bed, but sometimes I either don’t have time or I’m naughty and will go on my phone before bed. When I’m doing a pamper evening I do like to do the things I don’t normally do and this is one of them!

•sleep

During a pamper evening I like to go to bed at a early or reasonable time. Typically, 9:30-10. I usually have a pretty hard time falling asleep, so I’ve found taking some melatonin gummies before bed really helps.

And that wraps up my pamper routine! I hope you guys enjoyed it and let me know what some of your essentials for a pamper night are! I love to hear from you all! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!

•simple gifts to give anyone•

Hello everyone!!

Yay!! It’s finally December!! I’m so excited, it’s my favorite month and the best time of year! Along with spending time with family and eating amazing food, there’s also giving presents!(and getting them too, but I like giving better). While giving gifts is so much fun, it can also be kinda stressful. We all know that person that you can never think of a good gift for. Don’t worry! I’m here to help!

I’ve thought of three presents that you can customize to fit pretty much anyone! They’re all pretty inexpensive and you can totally run out to the store to grab everything on Christmas Eve ;). Without further ado, let’s get on with the post!

Cookies and money:

So, for the first one, you will need to make (or buy!) some cookies. This is the part I love, where you can choose any cookie to fit the person you’re buying for. I chose gingerbread, because they are one of my favorites and my friends favorite.

I just cut out some Christmas trees and little men. I left them blank because i was kinda running out of time, oops. They turned out amazing though!

Then I put them into an adorable Christmas box and added a note. I suggest putting in money or a gift card but I was giving this with some other presents:). And you’re done! This is really simple and anyone would totally love this gift.( my aunt gave this gift to everyone in my family last year and we all LOVED it. So I speak from experience). Like, who doesn’t want food and money?

Gifts from a mug:

This one is reallyyyy simple. I just got this mug, which was pretty inexpensive. Then I added a hot chocolate packet, some candy canes and fuzzy socks! Again, this is totally customizable, you can add the person’s favorite candy or coffee if they’re more of a coffee person. Or if they’re a tea person. I could go on for literal hours!

Movie night:

I love this one so much! All you need for this is just a Christmas (or just any) movie, I added some popcorn, candy and a blanket from Walmart that was like $5. Any holiday movies work, my favorite are:

Charlie Brown Christmas

Elf

White Christmas

How The Grinch Stole Christmas( the animated version though, the other one creeps me out)

You can find some pretty inexpensive holiday movies at Walmart or other stores.

I really hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more Christmas posts! I hope you are all having a very merry week so far and I’ll see you next Monday:)

•how I decorated my room for christmas•

Hi everyone!!

I’m genuinely very sorry for being gone for a month and just leaving you hanging. I feel terrible that I post for a couple weeks then disappear for a month. I do love blogging but I put too much pressure on myself. I decided that from now on every post is going to be something I’m proud of, and excited for you guys to read! Anyway, on to the post!

I recently decorated my bedroom, last weekend and I really wanted to show you all and hopefully give you some ideas! I personally LOVE Christmas! It’s my favorite time of year and I have tons of fun Christmas blog posts planned! (Sooo stay tuned for those ;).

Im obsessed! So for my bed, I have a reindeer pillow and a little stuffed Santa. I also added a sweater blanket that I got from Target and a fuzzy red blanket, which I’m OBSESSED with curling up with! I also have lights around my bed which just adds to the magic, I think.

On top of my bookshelf I have a little nativity with some Christmas tree branches. I grabbed a couple branches when we went and picked out our Christmas tree! I just cut off small pieces and stuck them together till I was happy with them. I also put a couple pine cones scattered around in the branches.

On my dresser, I have my advent calendar which is a penguin. ( her name is Peggy, because I know you are all dying to know) and a stuffed reindeer. On the mirror I have a gingerbread man gift tag and a Polaroid of my cat. I also put the leftover branches behind my mirror so it almost looks like my mirror is sprouting which I think looks super cute!

And lastly I put an elf hat on my tumblr quote, picture, thingy. I don’t know what it’s called. Anyway, I thought it added a cute touch and I do wear this hat a lot throughout December, so this isn’t permanent!

And that’s all folks! I hope you enjoyed and it’s awesome to blog again. I missed you guys!! I hope you are all having an amazing week so far! Have you started decorating for the holidays? What do you celebrate?
