My Self Care Routine

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Wednesday already and half way through the week. For today’s blog post I wanted to share my usual self care routine. Now since am a mom I dont get much time for myself to be honest so whenever I do get a chance I do these usual routines. Its important to get some time out of the day or week to have a little self care time I believe its healthy for us. And its extremely important of course for us mom because it helps us not lose ourselves in motherhood. Now the best brand for your care needs would be Farm House Fresh. They have the best products go check them out now!

Self Care

Shower Time

Now I know a shower is just a shower, but I love when I get time out. This is one of my best care times because I love doing a good body scrub. Right now I am currently using a caramel body scrub and I absolutely love it. Almost every time I get my time out to go shower I am using this. Another great tip I use that I actually found on Pinterest is a great shaving tip. If you are a shaver like me a great tip is to use Johnsons baby oil prior to shaving. In the shower and then your going to want to shave. This prevents ingrown hairs and helps get a better shave then shaving dry. This also helps hydrate your skin when you come out your legs will be so soft I promise yall!

Work Out

Working out is another great idea, I am going to be completely honest I hate to work out. After having two kids my tummy has not been looking to great. And I gave in to least try and change that. One of my revolutions was to least try and work out this year so I have been trying to. I have not been doing it on a regular but I try to whenever I have the energy. Its not as fast results but I am proud because we all have to start somewhere right.

Nails & Make up

Now another great thing we can do for ourselves is least get our nails done or get pretty for no reason. One thing I do whenever my husband is home is go and get my nails done! I love just having time out for me and have time to relax. And to be honest it feels pretty good I dont even care how much I spend on them. I do though always do my own toes at home. I dont trust nail salon tubs I just have heard to many horror stories in college since am a esthetican. However if I am not doing that another great thing that makes me feel good is make up. Sometimes we just need to put on some makeup, even if we not going out sometimes we need to do something for oursleves. I use to prior to baby number two always have time for this and now I rarely touch my box. I usually not even in the mood to put it out when I go out because I dont have the time. But I honestly want to get back into finding time, hopefully soon I can.

Breakfast

So I am not much a healthy eater but I always try to have breakfast in the mornings. My usual routine after dropping my oldest off at school is laying down with little one for awhile. Then when she goes down for her nap by 11:00 AM I am then usually hungry and go quickly make something. My usual : Eggs, Oatmeal, Toast, Banana, Waffles, Bagels with a cup of coffee.

Self Care

Down Time

Last but not least having some down time. As a mom I always make sure to get a break into the days and especially after the kids go to sleep. Throughout the day my down time usually consist of Netflex and some good online shopping or browsing. This helps me reflect relax a bit and rest my body. Even if your not a mother we humans are always on the go. Its always good to get a break in and relax a bit and gain some energy. If I honestly didn’t take any down time for myself I couldn’t have typed this post lol. By 6pm I usually dont have energy in me and cannot wait till 7pm – 8pm bedtime to finally get the whole night to myself. I am sometimes to exhausted and just need that whole time and night to regain my energy.

That is all for my self care routine, I hope you all found some of my tips useful. I am surprised I found energy to type this out tonight. But remember to squeeze in a little care through out your day we all need to be pampered. I feel like all of this is what least helps me and keeps me going. Thank you all for reading, please remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all. And if you haven’t checked out my last post you can do so HERE.

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day, my weekend was great and somewhat relaxing. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on how I feel about Milk Makeup hydro grip primer. I got a good feel on it and got time to gather my thoughts about this product. And wanted to share just in case anyone looking to try it out.

So I purchased this primer not to long ago, I was looking to try out a new primer. For a good two to three years now I’ve been using the becca matte primer and I’ve stuck to it. And I wanted to look for a primer that can hold my makeup, not make my face look or feel dry. The becca primer is matte but sadly it leaves a white consistency on my face. I wanted to try the hydro primer, at first I was unsure about it because how the consistency looked. And it looked like it would leave a sticky feeling afterwards but I decided to give it a try. I needed a primer and I had no second choice t to be honest lol. You can find the product here on sephora.

The hydro grip primer is a hydrating gripping primer. This product carries cannabis seed extract and blue agave extract for all day hydration. One of the things I love about the product is it has aloe water in it. And it blends clear to work with all skin types. For product to work best is to apply product over clean skin. Pump one to two shots apply product and let sit for one minute to activate grip. You can also wear this primer alone if you just want an no make up day. After using this product it does what it says my face felt 100% hydrated. I did not get a sticky greasy feeling after application even a few minutes after applying the product. And a little goes a long way with this product, which is a bonus.

After applying my foundation on it blended well with no issues my foundation looked smooth and blended. . The only thing I didn’t get to test was the length of time it holds up. I didn’t have my foundation on long enough to see how my foundation looked hours later. But I cant honestly talk about that and give results because we all have different skin types. And how my make up may look hours later yours may look different. so it all varies. My skin is only oily in my T zone and chin so usually hours later it gets oily. But hopefully this product helps with that issue.

If I had to rate this product out of 10 id give a 7, just because I still need to wear the product more and get more of a feel out of it. And wear it for a good couple of hours and see how my foundation holds up. But overall I love the product it was worth the buy and I honestly cant complain. If any of you have tried it what are your thoughts? Or is anyone going to try it out? Let me know in the comments. I always love to hear from you all, and ill talk to you all in the next blog!

Fenty Pro Kiss’r Review

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. This is my first blog post from being gone for awhile, a lot has been going on and I needed some time away from my blog. Soon I will be back to regular scheduling and settled again, being gone away has been upsetting but sometimes we need to just focus on ourselves and that’s what I needed and still need a bit. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review on the new fenty pro kiss’r luscious lip balm. 

 

So the fenty pro kiss’r luscious lip balm is a creamy moisture lock lip balm, its an non greasy light weight gloss. This product can be used with the fenty lip scrub stick, you can exfoliate with the scrub before hand and then use the pro kiss’r lip balm after. I just bought the product about a week ago and I already love it this is my current go to lip product at the moment, I feel like so far everything of Rihanna beauty line I love I haven’t came across a product of her I didn’t like. I love how nude and clear the lip gloss comes across when applied it blends in so well with you natural skin tone which makes the gloss come off as nude.

I love that I can wear this with any make up look am going for, and also use this in any season I like. The gloss was $23.00CAD and I personally think it was worth the money, I would absolutely go back for a second. The texture of the gloss is great it feels creamy and moisturising it has no sticky after feeling which I love because I know that is a big thing when it comes to glosses. And personally I am not much a gloss girl I usually start looking for matte lipsticks, but I think its just because I could never find that perfect gloss for myself and that could also fit my tone of skin but I have finally found it.

My overall thoughts is go and get you some pro kiss’r lip balm you will thank me! hint hint is going to be my summer go to beauty must have and go to for my summer look I also can not go wrong with the packaging always love how rihanna does her packaging. If you have bought this product already what is your thoughts on it? And if you have not is it on your bucket list to get or at least try? Let me know in the comment section I always love to hear from you all! Thanks for reading talk to you all soon in the next post.

Green Clean Sample Review

Good morning everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Friday everyone I hope everyone had a pretty chill week? This week for me has been hectic it’s crazy, am currently in the process of moving and I have been busy trying to organise everything especially the way I want lol you already know moving and with small kids equals mess and I don’t do well with mess. Then also I have been slightly sick this week “yay for me” that has been tough also my six month old too and then my husband has severe allergies so my house hold at the moment is crazy. I’m surprised I even could type this out with the way am feeling and praying I get sleep tonight from my six month old. But for today’s blog post I just wanted to do a quick review on a product I got as a sample of and I never used it up until yesterday and I instantly fell in love with it.

134b05cb-e180-4a10-b264-1ad10c4ef9ab

The product is called Green Clean, I haven’t heard of it until I got it as a sample in my Ipsy monthly make up bag. For awhile I had the product just laying around until yesterday I decided to get it a try, the product is a make up melt away balm and yesterday I was in the worst mood and just wanted my make up off asap and decided to give it a try. Now so far personally I haven’t came across any great make up removers other then Dermalogica 
pre cleanse, this is one of the best make up removers its not just a make up remover but a cleanser as well I would highly recommend trying this product out! 

So not only do I love the bottle packaging but I love the texture of the product as well, it does come off like it said as a balm form its really soft and comes off as creamy when applying to your face with water. Now that wasn’t the only thing that caught my attention when trying out the product I also noticed the smell of the product, it is more of a mint smell to it and it wasn’t to strong as well. It was not to strong of a mint smell or to light just enough to notice when applying to your skin and I absolutely love it. Now with the product I only have about a sample size (as you see in the pic) but what I love is with this product is ” a little bit goes a long way” . I grabbed about three small amounts to my finger tips and worked it around on my face and it got a good amount of make up off my face, I was actually quite impressed to be honest and you wouldn’t even need to apply more after I rinsed off that portion I continued rinsing and just that amount lifted most of my make up off.

This product is for normal to oily skin type, it helps with dryness, uneven skin tone and dullness of the skin. The top highlighted ingredients in the product are sunflower and ginger root oil, this is what helps melt away your stubborn make up. This product also helps remove impurities and gently exfoliates the skin! This is an absolute plus for me as I didn’t even know this. You can find this brand simply at your local sephora! I can say I will be buying the full bottle of this and add it to my daily skin re gamin. Thank you for reading and I hope you all enjoyed today’s post! If any of you have tried this product out let me know your thoughts about the product, or even if you haven’t if your going to try it out. Remember to like and comment I always love hearing from you all! Hope you all have a great relaxing weekend.

 

 

Quick Sephora Purchases

Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. I hope everyone week is going great so far, it’s Thursday already I feel like this week has been going by so fast. I have been so busy lately so much has been going on it’s crazy, I feel like 2019 so far for me been throwing a lot at me but I am trying to handle everything without freaking out. Sorry for the random uploads I have been trying to upload whenever I can as possible, I don’t want to abandon my blog and end up to busy to post anymore. I am in the process of moving and I am trying to find somewhere and still attend to my blog and social media pages while run a house and deal with my five month old. There is other things going on too but I won’t get into that as yet. But for today’s blog post I wanted to show my quick purchases I made this weekend, because I got I product I really wanted to try for awhile now and also wanted to see who else has been using this product or found it helps.

So I had to make a quick Sephora run this weekend, I had finished my eyebrow pencil and need a new one and one thing about me is if I am not wearing make up I at least need my eyebrows done and a pair of lashes and a gloss and am good. And to be honest am not a fan of dip brows or pomades or anything like that I absolutely hate them we just don’t get along and I can never get my brows the way I want them using those products. Also am a fan of a nice natural realistic brow, nothing wrong with a bold brow it just doesn’t suit me at all. So my favourite brow product I fell in love with that gets my the brow am looking for is Benefits precisely my brow pencil. I love it I always buy the $17.00CAD one, just cause am trying to save some coins to be honest. I find the fine tip is great for filling out the shape you want and doesn’t give a over powering colour to your natural brow, and the whole point to filling out your brow is to complete a full brow and fill in that choppy look. And I feel like that product does just that and maybe even more, it honestly lasts pretty long too.

So the other product I was looking to get is the Tatcha dewy spray, I wanted the mini size because I wanted to try it out first because it was between that or the new Anastasia Dewy spray. Unfortunately they stopped selling the mini size in the store and I would have had to purchase it online. So I decided to go with another product that I have been dying to try and I have been seeing it almost everywhere and heard nothing but good stuff about. So I decided to get the SOL DE JANEIRO Bum Bum Cream. So I heard that the product smells really good especially the body mist, I have got to smell it when I was at Sephora and let me tell you guys the things I have been hearing is absolutely true that body mist is one of the best smelling sprays I ever smelled. I will be going back to buy that spray, I decided to get the small $25.00CAD size. The reason I decided to go with the smaller bottle is to make sure I love the product, I have bought bigger sizes of products from Sephora in the past and end up not feeling the product. And one thing about me is I am one lazy return, I can buy products and if i end up not liking it instead me getting up and returning it or least switching I dont I throw it in the section of “not using”. I know Sephora has a return thing but I never take advantage of it which I should. But anyways I never tried the cream yet but I will do an review on it soon once I get a feel of how I like the product.
