LUV BBW Club, Victoria's Secret and Nabi haul

Hey beautiful ladies!

I hope your week is going good so far, mine is I've finally had some time to relax which I'm loving since the last couple weeks have been stressful.

Anyways, I wanted to share a few things I've hauled lately.

This is the last month for the LUV BBW Club so I got my freebies which were the mini Coconut Mango body lotion, Pineapple Mango candle and Fresh Picked Apple PocketBac. You got to choose the scent of each so you don't have to get these ones they had bunches to choose from.

Me and my mom split the deal at Victoria's Secret so I got the Mango Temptaion body mist and the Love Spell ultra-moisturizing body butter. I also picked up a mini Aloha Pink body mist in Tropical & Juicy (LOVE!!)

I stopped in a dollar store up the street from my house and picked up these Nabi nail poishes.

L to R:

88 Neon Blue, 118 Summer Purple, 39 Lavender, 81 Neon Light Pink, 98 Ace, 17 Neon Hot Pink and 29 Neon Pink.

So, that's everything!

What have you hauled lately?

Products I've finished lately


First I wanted to say Thank You to all the new followers I've gotten lately and also to those who have kept reading after all these years. I know I've been really on and off and I'm glad you've all stuck around :)

So, I must say I've been on a roll with finishing up products I've had for awhile. I think it really helps with my spending too because I'll think to myself, "no I don't need this I already have something like it at home!!"

 Kirkland Daily facial cleansing towelettes, Elf makeup remover cleansing cloths (2), Aussie 3 minute miracle deeeep conditioner and Proactiv Oil-free moisture SPF 15 moisturizer.

Sally Hansen hair remover wax strip kit, Bath and Body works Sweet Pea intense moisture body butter, UDPP, Loreal lineur intense carbon black liquid liner and Maybelline define-a-brow in Dark Brown.

I need to repurchase a few of these things soon but others I'll pass on.

What have you finished lately?

NOTW: Mango Motion

Hey everyone!

Just sharing my nails for this past week, I changed my polish color mid week which isn't usual for me so I just held off the post until this week. This polish color is SO pretty in person, the camera wasn't picking it up but it had a more orange tint to it that I loved! I will also warn you that the consistency is kinda weird, it took 3 coats to get it completely even.

Polishes used:

Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Mango Motion and Seche Vite fast dry top coat

What's on your nails this week?

Products I regret buying


I hope you're all having a great weekend so far!

OK, so I've debated on doing this post for awhile because I really don't like bashing products but I figured since it only helps if other people are thinking of buying these products to hear the bad side rather than only the good.

But yeah, I only have a few products because I give away things all the time and these were still left laying around.

1. ELF makeup remover cleansing cloths. I heard some pretty good reviews on these so I figured why not just try them. Well I ended up not liking them because they're really oily and burn my face a little, also if they get even a little close to my eyes they water like crazy. I gave them another chance when I ran out of my usual makeup wipes but they still disappointed me.

2. Suave professionals dry shampoo spray. I was so excited when I finally seen this in stores so I hurried and picked it up. I used it once and it really didn't do much for my hair at all then on top of that all the product evaporated so I never got to use it more than that one time. Boo!

3. Dove damage therapy daily moisture replenishing mist. Yes this was in my favorites once but while I was thinking it was this that was making my hair feel nice it was actually the combination of products I was using along with this. When I used this on it's own it did nothing for my hair at all, it was like spraying plain water on my hair.

4. NYC liquid liner in Pearlized black. I was in a rush one day and just grabbed this and man do I wish I had more time that day! First of all it has glitter in it which isn't at all pretty just makes the formula thick and chunky, second the brush is so flimsy I couldn't get a straight line no matter how hard I tired and forget trying to do a wing! Total fail.

Let me know if you like these types of posts and I'll for sure do more of them!

What's something you regret buying?

Review: Elf studio Tinted Moisturizer

Hey everyone!!

I got a request from LJ (check her out if you haven't already!) for this review, sorry it took so long get up! Enjoy! :)

What it claims: The lightweight and hydrating formula is breathable and provides anti-aging sun protection with UVA/UVB SPF 20.

Achieve even skin tone and naturally radiant skin with this moisturizing tint of color.

Skin enhancing aloe, cucumber and Vitamins A, C and E.

Where to buy: Target, certain Kmarts and

Price: $3.00

My Rating: 5 Peace Signs

The good: I find that this gives a light coverage with a slight glow to my face. A little goes a long way, about a pea size covers my entire face. It blends very well no matter what tool you use including your hands, my preferred method is a flat top buffer brush.

The bad: Like many others I was disappointed in the fact that the packaging leads you to think there is a lot more product then there actually is. I also find that this dries pretty quick so you have work in sections or very fast.

Overall: I really like this and will definitely be repurchasing after I finish my current one. It has made it's way into my daily face routine especially since it's been getting hotter where I live.

*This is just my experience and opinion on this product, it may or may not work the same for you, you never know!*

If you have any questions on anything I might have left out please comment and let me know!

Target beauty bag, ELF and F21 haul


Sorry about the lack of posts but I've been really tired lately and have a few things going on but I just wanted to share some things I've been meaning to blog about.

First is the Target beauty bag, it's no longer available but I received mine about a month ago. I hope they do another one of these but it was a really great little gift.

Everything came in this really cute Sonia Kashuk makeup bag which includes samples of  Pantene fine hair solutions shampoo, Nivea express hydration lotion, Fekkai shampoo and conditioner, Neutrogena naturals lip balm, Revlon color burst lip gloss in Hot pink and a coupon book with over $25 in savings.

Next are 2 small hauls from a few weeks ago.

ELF Brightening eyeliner and Eyelid Primer.

Nerd glasses and Anchor necklaces from Forever 21 (Aren't they cute?!)

I haven't been doing much shopping lately except for the essentials and my makeup has been the bare minimum since I pick sleep over getting ready lately lol.

I also have a question for you all, I have a few ideas about upcoming posts but I would like to know what you want to see on my blog.

Any requests? Please leave a comment and let me know!

Personal post: My neice is here!!

Hey everyone!!

I'm a little late in doing this post but I wanted to share with everyone that my sister/bestie Rachel had her baby girl on April 20th! Her due date was the 19th and they didn't want her to go past her due date so they induced her that day at 4:00pm and they put her on Cervadil since she wasn't dilated at all. It lasts 12 hours and the next morning when they checked her she was 3cm dilated but as the day went on she only progressed another 2cm. She got her epidural in the afternoon but once the evening of the 20th came around they decided that since she wasn't progressing anymore and the baby's head wasn't all the way down it was best if she got a c-section. I was shocked when she chose me to go in the room with her and I'm very happy and thankful she did! It was a really cool experience, I got to see the baby come out and hold her for the first time. I of course cried and was so happy for Rachel!

Gianna Jade was born at 7:12pm, 8 lbs. 11 oz. and 20 inches.

I'm babysitting her for the first time as I type out this post so her mommy can get a little nap in and it makes me so happy!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, I had to do it because I'm a proud auntie!
