LipSense Review & Exclusive Discount

Have you heard of Lipsense? I have heard so many of my beautiful friends and family talk about Lipsense and long it lasts! I honestly had no clue what it was! I was a Lipsense virgin up until this week!

I thought I should  give it a whirl, since almost everyone I know LOVES it and is raving about it in all my newsfeeds. I have to see what the fuss is for myself. Plus, I’m a huge fan of lipstick, I currently have 12 different brands of lipsticks in my make-up bag. For me, putting lipstick and mascara on just makes me feel like I’m good to go and can accomplish anything that day!

The assortment of colors offered are outstanding! I’m a huge fan of bright reds year round and merlot’s for Fall/Winter. I chose to go with Mulled Wine when I ordered Lipsense, it just caught my eye on the website. Let me know what you think!

As soon as I got this past weekend, I tested it out. Wow, this is so much more different than my usual wax based lipstick. I actually had to read instructions on how to apply it.

Step 1.) Prep- I cleaned my lips off, let them dry and shook the bottle of Lipsense

Step 2.) Apply- I was instructed to apply Lipsense in one direction (for someone reason I found this incredibly hard, even after several more applications I goofed on this in my video!) It has a tingly feeling, almost like your lips are drying out & puckering up. I was also instructed to let this dry, without my lips touching… again Lipsense virgin here, totally goofed that up too…

Step 3.) Apply some more – Continue to apply, dry and apply again. For a total of three coats of Lipsense.

Step 4.) Gloss – Apply the gloss about 5 seconds after your last coat of Lipsense and you ready to have kissable lips all day long! You can also use the gloss to retouch throughout the day for added shine.

VIOLA! Beautiful lips to last me ALLLLLL Day long! No really, it does!!

Our Review on a Baby Unicorn Hooded Towel by Cloud Island

Our little one is growing up so quickly! She has started crawling in the past month and has recently moved onto eating real food and seems to be getting messier than ever!

IMG_20170831_095858615

 

On top of her evening bath every night, we have had to add a few mid morning baths to get rid of breakfast’s mess. Nothing like buttery toast or cream of wheat in your hair to make you need an extra shampooing! This girl loves her meals and takes them rather serious. Even this morning, she decided to rub cereal and banana all over herself. Oye, what a mess.

Thankfully she loves bath time, getting her hair washed and playing in her baby tub as well. When it’s time to get out of the bath, I keep her extra warm and cuddly in her newest baby towel. We received the Baby Unicorn Hooded Towel by Cloud Islands to try out with her and we adore it! It is a plush white towel, with a simple pink trim around it. It fits around her comfortably out of the bath and keeps her warm as I rinse out the tub.

The hooded towel is perfect for an infant’s little head (yes, I know it hasn’t always seemed that little…). This hooded towel is great, because it doesn’t hang to low to cover eyes. (No freak outs here, thank goodness!) It has an adorable design to represent a Unicorn and make your little one feel like one too! Okay not really, I know they are a baby and really have no clue what a Unicorn is, but heck it’s adorable!

I think my favorite part on this towel, besides how soft and cozy it is,  is the gold Unicorn horn! I mean come on, how stinking cute is this?IMG_20170828_191503458

The Baby Unicorn Hooded towel also has pretty bright eyes, a pink mane of hair, cute little ears and a cute little muzzle!

We have washed it a few times and I have to say, it has held up well! I was nervous the gold horn would look worn out after a few washings, but it still looks as great as when we received it over a month ago! This has been our go to towel, due to the softness and plushness of the towel. The little one seems to like it too!

This Baby Unicorn Hooded Towel would make a great gift for a baby shower or an infant’s birthday! I know this will be on our gift giving guide for all upcoming baby showers! It’s just sooooo cute! (Can they make this in my size already?!)

The New Omni 360 by Ergobaby 

Disclaimer: Ergobaby provided me with a free product for review. My blog also makes a small commission when you purchase an Ergobaby product after clicking the
referral links. However, all opinions stated here are my own.

When we added another child to our family, I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to handle my everyday tasks, take care of my oldest daughter and take care of this new bundle of joy. Babywearing has been a sanity saver for myself as I transition from one kid to two kids. Honestly without it, I don’t think I would get anything done around my house, ever.

I have tried a few different baby carriers since having my youngest daughter and I have found better features at different stages for her. We started with a “Ring Sling”, while she was a newborn and then switched to an Original Ergobaby but forgot to purchase the insert to hold her in the Original Ergobaby at the newborn stages, so we ended up waiting until she was older to use it. I had hoped we would find a carrier that would hold her from the newborn stage into toddlerhood without the fuss and extra cost of purchasing a newborn insert, I also had hoped to find a carrier that was more comfortable for us, when holding the baby as she grows.

Ergobaby has listened to their customers and created an infant carrier that does all this and more. We were recently chosen to try out the new Ergobaby Omni 360 and I honestly, I was so excited because I do love my Original Ergobaby and was curious at what has changed to improve the carrier. My husband and I tested it out, since he will wear the baby on walks or when running errands, I was just as eager to see what he thought.

Ergo OmniMy Husband’s Review: “This baby carrier is more comfortable than the other carrier we have. It has lumbar support and padded shoulders, which is alot more comfortable for me and I think it is more comfortable for the baby as well. She seems to like looking out of the carrier, instead of always being against my chest. This is my favorite carrier and I really like how we can carry her more than one way.”

My review: “I love the dark blue on this carrier, it however won’t hide spit up like the tan carrier. I love the pocket option, to store my cell phone when I’m babywearing. I love the lumbar support, it is very helpful along with the padded shoulder straps. The baby can face out or in, which is great to have these options for her as she grows and gets more curious. I love how it can be used from the newborn stages up until she is a toddler. The carrier is the most versatile carrier on the market, with the ability to carry your child from birth to toddlerhood and in different positions.”

We have even had a few people show interest in the carrier, as we have walked around testing it out.

Searching for a baby carrier can be a daunting task, you have so many wants and few carriers offer everything on your list. I have listed a few key points about the Ergobaby Omni 360 Baby Carrier:

  • Ergonomic, forward facing option (and easy to switch!)
  • Adjustable from newborn to toddler (7 to 33 LBS)
  • Lumbar support for extra back comfort
  • Includes detachable storage pouch
  • Crossable straps
  • Padded Straps
  • Forward Front Facing
  • Head to chest facing
  • Hip Carry
  • Back Carry
  • Hip Healthy M-Shape Position for baby
  • Easy to follow instructions
  • Washable Material
  • Sleek design
  • Simple, yet stylish deisgn

We really love the Omni 360 Ergobaby carrier, compared to our Original Ergobaby, mostly for the fact it can be used from birth to toddler years, it is padded and offers more support than the Original carrier which provides great lumbar support for the adult carrying the infant. This should be a must on every parent’s registry, new parent or seasoned parent!

Upclose of the Omni 360

When you decide to babywear, you are providing comfort and love to your infant, in the simplest way possible. I think our bond is much closer with our little one, thanks to babywearing.

HSI Professional Flat Iron Review

Since having my second child, quitting my job and staying home with the girls, I don’t care how I look most days. You can guarantee if I’m not leaving my house, I’m in sweats, a borrowed shirt from my husband and my hair is not styled (unless you count baby spit up and unwashed hair as a style).

BUT you can bet your arse when I’m leaving my house, damn right I’m going to spend some time on myself, in order to feel my best in public. I still don’t put much effort into my makeup, mainly because I keep myself looking natural. Mascara, lipstick and I’m good to go. When it comes to my hair, I spend sometime there. I either use a waver to create a unique look or I want my hair pin straight and use a hair straightener.

This past week I was headed out with a friend and I knew I wanted my hair straight since it takes me less time to straighten my hair than it would take to use the waver. I was on a time crunch and new that straightening my hair was the way to go. I tried the HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider on my hair. I have thick, sometimes wavy/straight/kinked hair. My hair also frizzes up and looks poofy when it is humid outside. Using a Flat Iron is something I have been doing for years, it helps control this mess of hair on my head, quickly.

PicsArt_08-20-12.02.41

The before photo shows how my hair typically looks on a daily basis (out of a bun). I air dry my hair and I don’t add any products. The after photo shows my hair after the us of my HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron, without the use of any products. As you can tell my hair looks much smoother and sleeker after the use of my flat iron. If you would like to view a video I created about the product, you can do so here. (I’m not very good at these videos…. my oldest daughter would have done a better job, for sure!)

The HSI Professional Glider 1″ Ceramic Flat Iron“>HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron is 1” thick, has an on and off button with a light on the back of the flat iron to alert you if it is on and ready to use. The flat iron also has a temperature dial to control the heat you may need for you hair. Change your settings, based on the type of hair you have. The flat iron comes with a sample of argon oil to keep your hair sleek and smooth. You will also receive a nice tote bag for storage and a glove to use, so you don’t burn yourself with the flat iron.

The HSI Professional Glider Flat Iron is simple to use, from the very first usage. You can simply take it out of the box, plug it in and make your hair straight, sleek and beautiful! If you need further product reviews, please check out Influenster.

Testing out a New Dog Harness


We have three dogs in our family, that range in a few different sizes. Our smallest and oldest is our Chihuahua, Duchess. Then our oldest daughter has a dog, my husband adopted for her, that is a Chihuahua and Japanese Chin mixed, Candy Cane. We adopted Elvis, he is a puggle and my furry baby before our baby arrived.

With all of the dogs and our chaotic life at times, sometimes walking them gets pushed aside. To make things easier on our oldest, while walking her dog around the neighborhood, we ordered a new dog harness to keep her dog safer.

When I say safer, what I mean is her dog likes to escape. She escapes under our fence and runs around the block, she has escaped out of a collar while on the leash so the harness is necessary.

The dog harness is easy to use, the mesh harness is comfortable on the dog, there is an adjustable strap that goes around her chest so we can tighten it or loosen it if necessary. The mesh harness is sturdy for a small dog, she is able to run and jump in it as well.

We originally ordered a medium dog harness for Elvis, the puggle, but obviously it was too small for him. When ordering a harness, be sure to measure your dog first, prior to placing the order.
