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!!

It’s finally here! My favorite time of the year! F-A-L-L!! It’s my favorite time of year because I get to break out the boots, jeans and cozy sweaters!! I get to decorate our home with crimson, burgundy, orange and yellow accents that make everything feel so cozy and warm.

Even though I live in Arizona and it’s still pretty flipping hot, I still love fall. It’s the first day of Fall and I’m so ready for the cooler mornings so I can accessorize with my new beanie on our morning walks, from my Fall Fab Fit Fun box. I received my beanie in black, so it can go with everything!

I have already used a few of products out of my Fab Fit Fun box for Fall, and my favorite is my new lip crayon by Trestique! I LOVE it!! It’s a 2 in 1 product, that provides me with a pretty pouty matte red lip! I’m all about pretty red lips, any time of year and this is by far the prettiest red I have seen in awhile!

 

Have you ordered your Fab Fit Fun subscription box yet? You still have time to look fabulous this season and feel great with all the goodies packed inside! Check out my unboxing here and then head over here to order it!

Tuesday Night at the Gym

I went to the gym last night. It was hot and sticky Tuesday outside. The gym was crowded with people, half my age. I’m 32, nothing like looking at kids working out to stay fit with their boyfriends ((gag)) and show your lumpy butt up. Regardless, I stayed, I worked out. I was sweating and I was getting into my workout.

As I’m on this Elliptical machine for the first time in my life, I think “This isn’t too bad, I got this.” I look back down to the machine’s screen and realize it has only been 5 minutes.

FUCK. I’m sweating bullets already. Like seriously, that’s it!?

I decided I must zone out and keep going. Sweating is good for me, as much as I find it disgusting, maybe I will learn to love it?

Okay, elliptical, it’s you and me. Stride, strut, let’s do this.

I managed to squeeze in 10 more minutes. I burned 200 calories in 15 minutes. Not bad. I was sweating like it was going out of style. OMG I’m soooo out of shape. Why am I sweating so much?

I wiped down the machine, I moved over to the stationary bike. This can go one of two ways. I love the bike and it becomes my new favorite machine or I hate it and I can’t wait to get off of it.

7 minutes in, I’m sweating and I can’t seem to get my speed up or my consistency but I’m sweating like crazy. WTF. I’m slow, I can’t keep this up. FUCK THIS. I would rather be doing laps on my bike around the lake. I only burned 64 calories and I couldn’t stop sweating. Like seriously, gross sweat. Buckets of sweat.

I hate it.

I continue to go until 15 minutes and I’m totally over it. 111 calories. WTF. I should have stayed on the elliptical. I can’t feel my legs.

I chill for a minute, go get the towel to wipe down the machine and move on with my life.

I head over to strengthen my legs on the hip abduction machines, to strengthen my inner thighs and outer thighs. These two machines are my favorite! Strong legs are sexy legs!

I round out my 45 minutes at the gym guzzling water like it’s going out of style. I wipe down the machines and carry myself slowly to the counter to ask for the hours and then refilled my water bottle. Slowly slip outside, sit in my car and turn the AC on full blast, because of course it is 96 degrees at 8pm.

I get home, down some more water. Debate about eating dinner and forgo that completely so that I can shower and crawl into bed.

But hey, I went. Even when I was probably the 3rd oldest person there, by far one of the largest and most likely the sweatiest.

Fab Fit Fun Alert!

::Happy Dance::

I received an email last night that informed me, the Fall edition Fab Fit Fun box as shipped!! Waiting impatiently for it to arrive!!

EEEEKKK!!! So excited!

As soon as it arrives, I will be happy to share with you, an unboxing video on my YouTube channel.

It’s still hot here in Southern Arizona, so it doesn’t feel like Fall just yet, but I can use most of the products right now. I think I will hold off on the scarf and beanie until we get out of triple digits! I think I’m most excited for the cute gym bag, since I just started back at the gym. My tween is excited to try the charcoal toothpaste with me, I think we will have to have a mommy and daughter makeover night! I love how I was able to pick out a few products I would prefer and the rest is a total surprise!

When I paid for my annual access for Fab Fit Fun, I gained select access, meaning I get to choose a few items. Mostly the colors of something, but it’s nice to have a bit of a say in that. I also get my items shipped before others, along with the option to shop for items from previous boxes!

Our Review on a Baby Unicorn Hooded Towel by Cloud Island

Disclaimer: This article contains affiliate links! If you love our review and want this product for yourself, click the link offered and order it! I will then receive a small portion of the sale. 

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?!)
