SURPRISE!!! BLOGMAS 2017 BEGINS TOMORROW!

Hello lovelies! I know I’ve been a little bit MIA the last couple of weeks. I wanted to spend as much time as I could with my family and others close to me the week of Thanksgiving. As the title of this post clearly states. I will be doing Blogmas again this year. It starts tomorrow December 1st and will go until December 31st. I would love to hear from you and what you would like to see during Blogmas. Anything from beauty favorites, Christmas and holiday favorites, recipes that I’ve tested out, traditions, and everything in between. I hope that you all have a wonderful December, stay warm, have fun, and close out 2017 with a bang!

Sick Day Routine

Hello lovelies! Nothing like getting sick and tooth problems to derail the momentum I had going. Today I’m sharing with you what I do when I’m home sick all day. Thankfully after some over the counter pain reliever, and a trip to the dentist, I’m feeling much better and not sleeping every chance I get.

First thing in the morning, I put on some comfy cozy slippers and headed downstairs for something warm to drink. I will usually make myself a cup of coffee, but this morning I changed it up. I stirred up a cup of a chai tea latte. I would share the recipe or direct you to where I got the recipe from, but it was a Christmas gift from a family friend.

Once my tea is stirred up, I went back to bed and turned on Netflix. I know Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, but I started watching the made for tv movies/Hallmark channel-esque, Christmas movies. I am that person, that the second Christmas music starts playing on the radio, I listen to it 24/7. Also, the second Thanksgiving is over, I’m decorating my house.

That’s it! That’s what I do on days when I’m sick. What do you do on days you’re not feeling well? If you want to see my morning or night time routine, or if you have any other suggestions, let me know! I will have a Fall Bucket List Update soon! I have been busy working on that list, it was been so much fun doing things on that list, and I’m excited to share an update with you. That’s all for now. Stay warm and have a great day!

Project Pan Finale!!

Hello lovelies! So today I’m giving you the last update on my Project Pan. Let me get the bad news out of the way first. I did not reach my goal of finishing 10 out of the 15 products that I chose. I believe that I chose too many challenging items to try and complete in the time frame that I gave myself. On the other hand I think I balanced it out with enough products that I would be able or should have finished. Although I was not successful, I learned a lot about the way I use items. I am looking forward to do many more project pans. So let me go through everything.

Completely Finished

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

It’s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner

Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub

Blistex Silk & Shine

Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub in Tropical Mango

Almost Done

Buxom Full-On Lip Creme in White Russian

Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream

Nivea Lip Butter (Lost it)

Clarins Mission Perfection Serum

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

Aussie Sprunch Spray

Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx

That is everything! This brings my first Project Pan to a close. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you in my next post!

What I Got for Christmas 2016

Hello lovelies! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Today I’m sharing with you everything that I received for Christmas. I want to preface everything with: I’m not sharing this to brag with what I got. If anything, it is quite the opposite. I would much rather find the perfect gift for someone else.  To keep this post from getting too long, let’s jump in.

As I was working on this post, I realized I didn’t include the Jingle Bell Berry Hand Cream, Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion, and a winter mug fill with peppermints, candy canes and candy, an all natural honey and oats scented soap, and body mitt.

I truly feel blessed, and am lucky to receive gifts that I absolutely love. I hope that you all had a wonderful day with your family. I’ll see you in my next post.

Merry Christmas

Hello lovelies!! Merry Christmas! My original post for today just wasn’t working out, so I will keep it short and sweet for today. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy the time with you friends and family. I hope that you make some wonderful memories, eat tons of food, and pass out on the couch. Hopefully Santa has visited your house and left presents under the tree. I hope that you’ve had a wonderful day with your friends and family. Have a great day and I’ll see you in my next post. Merry Christmas!

My Favorite Holiday Reds

Hello lovelies! Welcome to day 8 of Blogmas! Today I’m sharing with you my favorite Holiday shades of red.

First up are my two current favorite shirts for the season. A red plaid with a gold stripe button down shirt from the Ava and Viv line at Target. A shirt like this is great for a casual look paired with jeans and boots. The second shirt is a red berry toned sweater/sweatshirt for Lane Bryant. The pattern on the sleeves and front of the shirt is a brighter and shiny tone of the rest of the shirt. It can be dressed up with black pants and heeled boots or dressed down a bit with jeans and flats. For a third option you can pair it with a pair of black leggings and fuzzy socks for lounging around the house.

The rest of the items are my favorite. It’s a combination of lip products and nail polish, and one candle. We have:

Rimmel Show Off Lip Velvet Matte in Burning Lava

Flower Nail Polish in Budding Romance

Maybelline ColorSensational in Summer Sunset

Butter London Nail Polish in Saucy Jack

Bath and Body Works Candle in ‘Tis the Season

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Jet Set Red

Essie Nail Polish in Leading Lady

Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella

I wanted to try out something kind of new. I hope everyone’s week is going well and I will see you all in my next post.
