Soap and Glory’s Hocus Focus

Hey y’all! Happy Monday. So, I took the last week off as vacation and for the first time ever in my life it truly felt like a vacation. As y’all know, I went to Kansas and visited my adorable nephews and best friend. Kansas is definitely a different place than Miami but it was so nice to get away. It was the first time that I simply did nothing. When I go and see them, I literally just fall along with their routine and let me tell you, I am 100% completely ok with that. Her sons are adorable and I love them. I have missed them like crazy since they have moved a year ago.

Anyway, enough of my sappiness. Let’s get into what y’all are here for on “Makeup Monday,” today’s review. I will forewarn you, it will not be a good one and it will not be nice. Truth be told, I HATED this primer. Today, we are talking about Soap and Glory’s Hocus Focus primer.

Mario Badescu Awesomeness

Hey y’all! I sound a lot more peppy on here than I really am right now. Lol. I got sick out of nowhere yesterday and have been feeling super crappy. I went to bed at 8 pm and did not even crack my eyes until 10 this morning. I had chills, aches, hot flashes and a headache. I was feeling like I was going to die. (I know, I was being melodramatic but it happens. Lol.) Even now as I write this at 10 at night I am still not feeling 100%, hell I am not even feeling 80% but I gotta suck it up. I go back to work at both jobs tomorrow after having an entire week off from both = spoiled. Lol.

Moving on. Tonight I figured I would let y’all in on a little secret about Mario Badescu.

Water – How To Get It In

Happy Wednesday y’all! I am writing this early because I will be traveling home all day from Kansas. It has been an awesome week of family and fun. Unfortunately, it is time for me to get back to my normally scheduled program. So, as this posts I will be on a plane on my way back to beautiful South Florida.

While traveling and going out I make sure I bring a water bottle with me and a water enhancer. I love water but it makes it even easier to get my water in when I flavor it. My favorite thing to use is Mio.

Today we are going to talk about all the yummy flavors I already love and the super cool ones that I found while traveling in Kansas that do not exist in Miami. Explain that one to me please? How is it that a small town in Kansas has a better Mio selection than every flipping Publix and Target in Miami?

Jaclyn Hill X Becca Eyeshadow Palette Review

Hey y’all! Happy happy Monday! I hope everyone had a long a restful weekend. Today does not feel like a Monday at all. It has been super relaxing to simply be out of town and hanging with my friends and their kids. We have gone to an orchard and I was able to sample some apple wine and frozen apple cider. Y’all that stuff is sweet liquid deliciousness. I am so going to try that at home because it is a teensy bit healthier than other stuff I could shove into my mouth. Lol.

I got to go with one of my nephews to his first archery lesson and he did amazing. I have never seen that kid listen so well and he was super focused. Out of every arrow he shot, I think three didn’t hit the target. He will definitely be honing those skills and hitting the fields with me to hunt in no time.

Today we are talking about the Jaclyn Hill X Becca Eyeshadow Palette. I know a lot of palettes were horrible and that Becca pulled this palette which is extremely sad because I LOVE this palette. I was fortunate enough to be able to have been sent a really good one. So, we’re going to talking about it.

Nude Skincare Perfect Cleanse Clarifying Oil

Hey y’all! Happy Sunday. So, I have decided to try and write more. Lol. I know, lets see if that actually happens. IF I am able to do that Sundays are going to become “Skin Care Sundays” because lets face it, there is makeup and then there is skin care. Truth be told, I think skin care is 100 times more important than makeup any day. If you don’t have good foundation, your makeup will always look crappy.

Recently I was searching through the sale items on Sephora because you know your girl is not made of money and some times things are a little too expensive. Lol. Anyway, I stumbled upon some Nude Skincare products and thought why not.

Winged Eyeliner

Happy Saturday y’all! I hope you are enjoying the day and just relaxing. I have been in Kansas for a few days now and have been loving doing absolutely nothing. Sometimes you have to leave your home for a few days to truly relax. I know that if I was home I would be cleaning or stressing over something to do with work or trying to find something to do so I wasn’t seeming to be unproductive. So, it is definitely nice to just sit and blog and enjoy the chaos that is my friend’s house. Lol. I mean it is a house with 3 boys so it is to be expected.

Today, we are going to talk about the ugly truth about winged eyeliner and how some of the YouTubers lie to you. Granted, they don’t mean to but it happens. Lol. We watch YouTubers and beauty bloggers and expect out wings to turn out exactly like theirs with little to no effort.


But this takes lots and lots of work, practice and patience. ┬áSo, let’s get into this. . .
