Color Street Amazonia

Color Street Amazonia is new this spring! This is a beautiful glitter snakeskin print. The glitter nail art are always my favorite designs from Color Street. They just seem to be the wraps that adhere to my nail the best and the easiest. For some reason, I have a hard time with the solid colors. Probably due to my sharp c-curve. But the glitter wraps? They go on smooth as butter!

Pixi Eyeliner and Mascara Review

{Press Sample}

Pixi sent me a collection of eyeliners and mascara to review for you! Pixi is available in drugstores and online (such as on Amazon.) I like the variety of colors they sent me. It’s been a while since I’ve worn not black eyeliner so I was excited to experiment with these shade!

pixi-eyeliners pixi-mascara-review pixi-eye-liner-review

The color payoff is very good. I barely had to press at all to get vibrant, colorful lines. I was also impressed with the staying power. Not only was it harder to smudge, but it didn’t “travel” under my eye throughout the day.pixi-eye-liner-swatches

In this photo, I am wearing the metallic gilded eyeliner, the black eyeliner, the mascara primer, and the mascara. I’m also wearing eyeshadows from a shadow palette Pixi sent me previously.

I’m very happy with these products. It’s nice to be able to find an affordable product that is excellent quality. Since my divorce, I can’t splurge at Sephora like I used to, so I’ve been reaching for my Pixi stuff over and over again.

Thanks again to Pixi for sending this collection my way! I definitely recommend it!

Color Street Blue Lagoon

Color Street Blue Lagoon is new in the spring collection this season. This is a very simple wrap and I freaking love it. It’s clear polish with aqua microglitters. I put this on top of my bare nail, but you could put it on top of black polish or a black wrap and it would look frickin’ amazin’.

Color Street Capital Hill

From the new Spring Collection, I bring you….Color Street Capital Hill!!

This is a gray polish with pink glitters. The pink glitters are micro and medium hexagons. This wrap reminds me of the cherry blossoms in Washington DC when the petals start falling off and landing on the pavement. I absolutely love cherry blossom trees. I used to have one in my backyard, but it died. (Cue sad violins here.)

Color Street Tempe Vibes

Woah! It’s been a couple minutes since I posted, eh? Oops! Don’t worry, though! I haven’t forgotten about you! :P

Today, I’m wearing Color Street Tempe Vibes. This is a gold glitter wrap with Arizona-themed black pattern on it. I’m still flabbergasted at how easy these are to apply and remove. I did my nails last night while watching DeathNote on the couch with my boyfriend. SO fricking easy that it’s ridiculous!

Weigh-In Wednesday: April 4th, 2018

Howdy! One week ago, I confessed that I’d rejoined Weight Watchers. I’ve now been following the program for a week. Except for last Friday-Sunday when I completely fell off the wagon. LOL. The good news is that I still lost 1.5 lbs this week. I am now at the bottom of the range of those two pounds I’ve been cycling for all of 2018. That means that, if I’m a good girl, next week I’ll be able to report a loss that actually means something!

Here are my FitBit stats for the week. You can see I was good Monday through Thursday and then got a wee bit lazy on the weekend. I’ll see if I can slowly start to do better on the weekends even though they are filled with fun and games.

Here’s my usual side-by-side shot! I need to figure out some better lighting for my quick morning picture. But, at least you can get an idea of my silhouette.

weigh-in wednesday April 4, 2018

I’m also looking for suggestions on songs that make you wanna move your booty. For example, some songs on my current playlist are:
Meghan Trainor, Me Too
50 Cent, Shake That Ass
Tape Five, Dixie Biscuits
Beyonce, Single Ladies
Ke$ha, Warrior

If you know of any songs in that vein, with a good beat, that make you wanna move and groove, please let me know!

Toilies Review

{Press Sample}

Toilies sent me some of their toilies personal air fresheners to review for you!

Picture this: You wake up, brush your teeth, and have a cup of coffee. Since you drink your coffee black and strong, it does its job quickly. You quietly listen to see if your boyfriend, still asleep upstairs, is stirring. Determining it’s probably safe for a quick trip to the bathroom, you scoot on over there and begin making preparations.

You’re about to sit down, and you hear the telltale creak of the steps. Shit. He’s awake. And he’s coming downstairs. NOW. Unfortunately, your body was already told it was going to get to poop. Now what?

Enter Toilies! I ripped one of these bad boys open and threw it in the toilet and plunked down. This was very risky because I hadn’t tested them yet! Would it work? Would I scare my boyfriend away with an evil “last night’s Mexican food” stench? Would that weird little doily looking thing really help???

review-of-toilies

I am happy to report that Toilies worked amazingly well. I was able to take a dump incognito  literally right before my boyfriend entered the bathroom. Honestly, I’ve never felt more relieved in my life.

Also, I hope he doesn’t read this.

Cheers!

Thanks to Toilies for sending these my way and saving my morning! They are available at Toilies.com!

Weigh-In Wednesday: March 28, 2018

Well, I finally caved! I rejoined Weight Watchers. I joined a week ago today, but really only started doing it on Monday. It’s going to be a bit of an adjustment, especially since my boyfriend and I eat out a lot. But, WW has worked for me in the past, so hopefully it will work again. The scale has been pretty happy the last two days! :P

I’m still toying with the same two pounds from my “low” since really trying to lose weight in October. However, I think joining WW will jump start my weight loss again and I should be able to break through this plateau.

I’ve also been trying harder to reach 10,000 steps per day. Back when I was super thin and healthy, I was walking 3-5 miles in the morning every day. I could almost eat whatever I wanted since I was exercising so much. However, I had to get up at 3:50am in order to do that. I’ve been trying to get up earlier to get back into that habit, but my body is refusing!!! I am such a heavy sleeper; I can sleep through nearly anything. I have three alarms. One of those alarms is my cell phone with 5 alarms set in the morning, all with different sounds. The other two are physical alarm clocks. I also have TWO lamps on timers that turn the lights on to help wake my ass up. And I STILL SLEEP IN. WTF. I may never be able to get back into that morning walking routine!

If you’re reading this and you’re on Weight Watchers, how do you like the new Freestyle plan? Have you found success with it? Any tips or tricks you can share?

Some of my favorite weight-related memes:

Dia Box Review

{Referral Link}

I decided to try a new clothing subscription service called Dia box. I wrote to my stylist to let her know that I work during the day and then see my boyfriend right after work. I asked for some pieces that could transition from work to chillin’ without too much effort.

I forgot to take pictures of the two items I returned. One was a pretty wrap dress. I would have kept it, but it was way too short. It barely covered my lady bits. But, it was too long to be a shirt. So, just awkward in general. The other item I returned was a statement necklace. It was just a little too bulky for me.

I kept a blouse, a cardigan, and some jeans. Let’s take a look!

The blouse is white with black dots on it. (The skirt is from Gwynnie Bee, by the way.)

dia-box-review

I also kept this black cardigan. It seems pretty standard from the front, but wait!dia-box-clothing-review

Check out the back!! It’s so cute! It laces up and has a little peek-a-boo chiffon. I’ve probably worn this cardigan 1,000 times since I bought it a week ago. Ok, that might be an exaggeration, but I freaking love it!clothing-subscription-review

Finally, I kept the jeans. They actually fit really well! I’ve lost a wee bit of weight and all my other jeans are too baggy. I constantly have to pull them up. It’s really nice to have a pair of jeans that actually fits so I don’t have to worry about my pants falling down!

I just swapped the skirt out for the jeans and now I’m ready to hang out with my man! A pretty easy transition if you ask me!dia-box-subscription-review

I feel like the stylist at Dia really took into account my feedback for my initial order. We’ll see if they can keep it up long-term! I’ll post again in March when my next box arrives! And, hopefully this time I’ll remember to take pics of all the pieces! LOL.

Pixi Rose Collection Review

{Press Sample}{Affiliate Links}

Pixi sent me their Rose Collection to review for you! This came in an adorable box with a little lock that opened up to the products. It was really fun to open! I don’t know if this packaging was just for bloggers or if it’s available to purchase. I can’t find this specific box online…but maybe it’s out there? I know Pixi is in Target also, so it might be there.

pixi-review pixi-rose-review pixi-rose-collection

The two skincare items are Rose Caviar Essence and Rose Flash Balm. Both of these made my skin feel SO freaking soft. And, I think my makeup looked better, too! (Better canvas=better painting!!)

Rose Caviar Essence: Instructions-After cleansing and toning, press gently onto skin, neck and décolletage and let absorb. Encapsulated flower oils suspended in this weightless serum-essence melt onto the skin delivering fresh botanicals to hydrate and restore skin’s brightness for optimum radiance

Rose Flash Balm: This radiance-boosting balm is the ultimate pick-me-up for tired, lackluster skin helping with signs of fatigue in a flash

How-To Apply

• Use AM or PM or as needed
• To use as a treatment primer, apply a thin layer to face and neck after cleansing
• Do not rub. Follow with foundation if desired
• To use as a mask, apply a thick layer and leave on for 5 minutes 2-3 times a week.

This collection also has an assortment of lip colors. I’ll be giving these away since I exclusively use LipSense so if you know me IRL and want some of these lip colors, let me know!pixi-liquid-matte-review

Vintage Cosmetics Company Products Review

{Press Sample}

The Vintage Cosmetics Company sent me three products to review for you! This company produces very useful beauty products in unique, vintage-inspired packaging.

vinTAGE-cosmetic-co

First up, we have the Exfoliating Face Sponge. This is a silcone product with a sponge-like thing inside. You put your face soap in it and use this sponge to massage and exfoliate your face while your usual face soap does the work of cleansing. It’s a clever product and definitely helps my soap work through my long-lasting makeup!vintage-cosmetic-company-exfoliating-sponge vintage-cosmetic-company-sponge

Next, we have this eye mask that can be used either hot or cold. I have to say, this is fantastic. I had a headache the other day and used this mask cold to help alleviate the pressure. It felt great on my eyes!!

vintage-cosmetic-company-gel-bead-eye-mask gel-bead-eye-mask-review eye-mask-review

Lastly, we have this headband and it’s my favorite product of the three that were sent! This helps keep your hair off your face when you’re applying your makeup or you can use it when you’re washing your face.make-up-headband

The extra bonus of this headband is that it keeps my ears warm! It’s been so frigidly cold here lately!

Weigh-In Wednesday Feb. 28, 2018

Today’s post is dedicated to my mother! Whenever I don’t post a Weigh-In Wednesday update, she calls me on Thursday to ask what’s going on. LOL. Oh, mom! :P

And now the dog trainer in me is screaming, “Don’t post today! You’ll just reward her behavior!” LMAO.

Anyway, I’ve been toying with the same two pounds since the last time I posted. I guess the good news is that I haven’t gained? The even better is news is that I’m feeling reinvigorated and even got over 10,000 steps on my pedometer yesterday. (I should be doing that every day….but…sometimes laziness wins!)

The kind gentleman I’ve been dating also is interested in losing weight and getting healthier so we’re trying to be good influences on each other. We’ve been making dinner at our houses a lot more instead of going out. This is good for our waistlines and our pocketbooks.

As the weather turns less frigid and wet, we’re also going to go take the dogs for more walks and hikes. My butt and hips will like that and my dogs will like it too. So, win-win!

All in all, this updated is to say that there really is no update…yet. But perhaps if I’m a good girl, I’ll have a nice update for you next week! Thanks for stopping by today!

Sky Organics Bubble Box February 2018

{Press Sample}

The Sky Organics Bubble Box February 2018 might just be the best smelling bubble box yet! I had to really control myself from trying to take a big bite out of the bath bombs because they smelled so freaking delicious!

sky-organics-bubble-box-february-2018

Sky Organics is starting to make cute shapes with the products. This is the first box I’ve gotten where there were shapes. In the upper right-hand corner, there is a heart and the bottom left is a cupcake!

feb-2018-sky-organics-bubble-box

I love this monthly bath bomb subscription because it reminds you to pamper yourself AT LEAST once a month! Self care is so important, but it’s so hard to remember to do! When this little box of delightfulness shows up on your doorstep each month, it’s a wonderful reminder to take a few minutes and enjoy an luxurious bath!

Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip Review

{Press Sample}

fliexi-clip-reivewRebecca from Lilla Rose sent me this gorgeous flexi clip to review for you!

Every month there is a special Flexi that comes out, which is called our “Flexi of the Month” (FOTM). It comes out usually on the 1st of every month (sometimes early if it is a special holiday, like Christmas or Valentines) and is available until it either sells out or the last day of the month hits, which ever comes first. There are many times that the FOTM sells out within hours or days! So, it’s best to be connected with a Stylist, if you want to know the newest hair accessory designs, as well as awesome sales.
lilla-rose-review
In the past few months, Lilla Rose has had 2 Flash Sales, which last only a couple hours and the prices are equivalent to Black Friday, which this past year, were up to 60% off.
If you want to earn some hostess rewards, there are 3 ways to have parties; In-Home, Catalog (“Style Boutique in a Bag”), and social media. The “Style Boutique in a Bag” is one of Rebecca’s favorites.
Rebecca has a bag that she gives to the Hostess, which contains at the very least, 1 of each size Flexi, XXS to Large and a set of our Strong Hold Bobbies. Then you can go anywhere and collect orders.
lilla-rose-flexi-clip
For February, corporate brought out 2 Flexi’s of the Month, Darlene and Amorette. They can be worn as is, or you can put a picture in the frame. Another use could be that anyone who diffuses essential oils can wear an XS or Small on a scarf (depending on the scarf thickness) and put a piece of cotton batting in the frame to put a drop or 2 of their oils on.
There is also an online Customer Special in February. During the month of February, receive 1 free Bobby Pin with an order of $40 or more, or 2 free Bobby Pins with an order of $50 or more.

lilla-rose-flexi-clip-review

I actually own about 7 Flexi-Clips by now so I’ve been a Lilla Rose customer for a while! They are a great way to quickly put your hair up without having to use one of those butterfly clips that are straight out of the 90’s.

Thanks for reading my Lilla Rose Flexi-Clip Review! If you’d like to order one, make sure to get in contact with Rebecca!

This collection is the Pretty Serious Consider Outer Space collection. Each one is a holo glitter that is extremely rich in color.

Pretty Serious My Immortal is actually my favorite of the collection. This blue has a teal shift. It’s freaking gorgeous AF.

The colors in this collection are very rich and vibrant. I think it’s gorgeous and each one is unique. I’m so sick of polish companies putting out collections where half of the polishes are a similar color. This collection has diversity in shades, but it’s also cohesive! That is exactly how a collection should be!

Color Street Downtown Romance

Color Street Downtown Romance is part of our limited edition Valentine’s Day Nail Art collection. This set lasted forever on my nails. PLUS it is freaking gorgeous. So sparkly in the sun!
