Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week. It’s the 5th of June and I am just now writing my June goals for the month, I have realized that I probably won’t have high expectations this month because of a lot going on. This month I am doing a lot of packing because I am getting ready to move, I am super excited for this move I am so ready to be leaving my apartment. I am ready to start a new chapter in my family life, also after this move I will be putting up more content and be even more consistent with my blog.

One of my goals are to consistently at least on my social media platforms. Especially Twitter and Instagram I want to increase my followings, be more engaging with my followers because before increasing numbers I at least want connections with my followers. My second goal is pretty similar to the first, I want to continue to improve my content with Instagram. I am always trying to put up the best quality of pictures on my instagram; one thing I believe in is if you don’t put out the best or least quality it can always lead to lack of following and engagement. I am always hearing this consistently when doing my research on social media containing being a blogger. My third and last goal is to work hard and increase my views on my blog, I feel like this will always be a goal every month for most bloggers I mean even if you got a thousand every month you want to push for two. Sometimes I feel like giving up on blogging but I remember it’s not about the numbers I started all this because I love it. Soon enough my numbers will grow, heck today I made it to more views ! I am getting somewhere and I feel proud of it.

And there you have it three of my big goals for the month of June, its always hard to keep up with blogging especially being a mom and a wife but I feel like setting goals for yourself every month helps motivate you even more. I hope this blog helps in some way, thank you all for reading, sorry if my blogs seem short I am trying to put out posts while dealing with a move and kids running around. There will be a post up Friday morning at 9am EST standard time so look out for that! Remember to like & comment I always love to hear from you !

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.

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.

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.

 

 

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Thursday I hope everyone week is going well, for today’s blog post i wanted to share my kids thrift haul in review of some recent purchases I did and how the whole trip went. So funny story my at the time three month old needed a new swing and my mom decided me and my husband to go to ” Once upon a child” a thrift store in Toronto for kids and babies and sell our old one and buy a new used one from there.

I was so hesitant on this because to be honest I am not much of a thrifting person, I never have for me or my oldest most of her clothing comes from zara. So me and my husband get there and I start looking around and omg guys I start getting carried away and picking up items. I have so far made about two trips so far or three and I have bought so much items that came up to about $70.00 CAD, that is about the same amount for three items i buy at zara.

I swear it has became an obsession for me because now whenever I get money that’s all I think about thrifting. I am happy for the least I gave something a try and stepped out my comfort zone, now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with thrift stores but that was the first time I ever really been in one. For my overall experience it was great, the clothing most is new and the ones used is actually not to bad looking you cant really tell for the most that they are used. The service I had was okay I received great service the only thing I think that part of their service that is not so good is how much they give you in selling. It seems what you give to sell they dont pay you as much as what the item may cost, I have picked up some designer clothes from there and they didn’t cost much seriously i paid for some for about $5.00 CAD.

I know it is a thrift store and the whole idea is buying a lot for less but if I paid for an item for a lot I would want at least a decent amount of money back. Another down side was that they sell a lot of cute clothes from newborn till about 3 years and I noticed for my oldest daughter which she is about 5 going on 6 they didn’t have good clothes to me for her age. Pretty much what id buy there for her is about dresses and pj’s. The items I did get were some dresses for my oldest because it was all I can find that i liked, and for my four month old I got some cute shorts for her and some cute outfits I got to find a good decent amount of clothes. My most favourite items from both of them if I had to chose would be one of the dress from my oldest and this cute jeans jacket I found for my youngest. Overall I would say I am now a 100% thrift shopper, I know for sure ill be spending a lot of time there. Thanks for reading, because of a busy day yesterday I did not get to post yesterday I hate when I have to switch up the schedule due to a busy week but I am happy I at least got to get it up today. Monday usual post will be up at 9am EST time for sure, have a great rest of your Thursday!

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday! I hope everyone’s weekend went well? Last Wednesday I put out a blog post on how I organise my blog posts and I decided to now do an update post on all the apps i basically use for blogging and what I use them for. From since the last post I have used different and new apps that really help me a lot and this can maybe help you out so lets get right on into it!

Plann

So the first app we will be looking into is plann, this app is made to help plan and organise your Instagram postings before uploading them to your Instagram. This app is a huge life saver for me and I pretty much use it all the time, it helps me plan out and upload everything I want to it so I can plan out a whole week of Instagram uploads to post. This app also helps me keep my Instagram colour scheme I want and not post something that doesn’t go with my colours I have going already.

Canva

Next is canva, almost every blogger probably knows canva. This app is like one of the top must haves for a blogger, this app is for designing. I use this app for designing all my blog covers and Instagram story graphics etc. This app pretty much goes hand and hand with Pinterest because this is what everyone is using to make their blog pins.

Pinterest

Ok, so everyone has Pinterest ! I always had a Pinterest account way back and pin and bit here and there but never really focused on Pinterest and all what it does until now. I am fully in the Pinterest obsession now, I am now making use of Pinterest for my blog, I am still trying to get my Pinterest strategy and see what works for me but so far so good. I must say Pinterest is like the best yes for getting your blog noticed getting whole loads of traffic but a huge frustration if you ask me.

VSCO

Most people use VSCO, I only mostly use this app to whiten my backgrounds in my photos for my Instagram. This app is really great for overall photo editing I would recommend it for blogging, but overall I use this app only for background whitening.

Preview is pretty much another Plann, it helps organise and help sort and plan out everything you would like to post before uploading your photo. I love using this app for photo editing, if you are looking for an app that can help with colour coordinating your Instagram and making a colour scheme I highly recommend this app. It also helps you with your stats for Instagram you would just have to connect your account.

Tailwind is an app that I just started using, I am still trying to understand it and figure out how this whole app works. But I love using this app to organise and plan and schedule my pinterest postings. I also connected my Instagram account but I dont find it helpful for Instagram just because I have another way of posting my Instagram. This app has help me gain loads of monthly viewers to my pinterest account over night just by planning and scheduling postings for over night. I am still trying to understand and build with tailwind tribes, and find a strategy that works best for me. If you do not have tailwind I would recommend getting it, it is a huge help for pinterest gaining huge amounts of traffic. Hopefully this post has helped with maybe adding something new to your blogging, I hope I somewhat explained how all these apps work. Sorry for todays late posting ( life has taken over) next post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST.
