December Favorites and 2018 Wrap Up

Hi everyone,

Today, as there’s only a couple of days left in the month, I’m going to be doing my December favorites and kind of wrapping up 2018. I have quite a few things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my December Sephora Play Box. The first is the Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer- Peaches and Cream Collection. I used this on Christmas Day and I really like it. It blurs any imperfections you have and it helps to brighten your skin. I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a primer. And it smells like peaches and cream which is nice bonus. The Peaches and Cream collection is really great.

My second favorite is the Trestique Lip Glaze in Paris Pink. I’ve worn this a couple times since getting it and I like it a lot. I would say it’s in between a lipstick and a lip balm. The color is really nice, it’s really long lasting and it’s very hydrating. I’m definitely going to be checking out Trestique to see their other products.

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in 02 Nothin’ But Nude. This is a really pretty nudey brown and it goes with so many different lipsticks. I like that it’s really soft on the lips and basically glides on. And it has a matte finish. It’s got everything going for it. You can get this in something like 40 shades and I have a couple sitting in my cart right now that I’ll go and purchase after this.

Moving on, my next favorite is Christmas and within that what I got for Christmas. Starting with my stocking, my parents are pretty good at nailing stocking stuffers. Besides some of my favorite candy, there was a bottle of  Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Spray, which is one of my favorite Bath & Body Works scents. A pack of hair ties, which is always needed, and a little loofa. There was also three mini products. I keep a little kit in my handbag that’s full of minis for all situations, so any additions to it I like. So there’s a Crest 3D White toothpaste, a Softsoap Juicy Pomegranate and Mango Infusions Moisturizing Body Wash and a Gold Bond Ultimate Skin Therapy Cream with Aloe.

Moving on to my actual presents, there were a few things I didn’t take pictures of and those were socks and some black tank tops, the basics. I did get one other clothing item and it’s a Mariners sweatshirt. I have some Mariners gear but I didn’t have any sweatshirts and I didn’t have any gear in the Sunday colors which are navy blue and gold. I wore this yesterday, it’s super comfortable and cozy and I like the way it fits.

Next I have a couple of beauty presents and each of these are going to get their own posts, so I’m not going to get too in depth about them. The first is the Sephora Collection The New Neutrals. This is a little box that has five different nude/neutral lipsticks and they’re all really pretty. I’ve worn two of them so far and I’m really happy with them. I’m excited to get into the details of this box.

The second beauty item is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette. I’ve been drooling over this palette since I opened it and honestly I still kind of am. I’ve worn three of the colors so far, not at the same time, but I’m so happy with it. It’s a gorgeous palette.

I have one music item and it’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust concert. I bought this on iTunes and have been listening to it but I have yet to watch it and this comes with two CDs and one Blu Ray. I’m definitely excited to watch this.

My last two items are lifestyle related. The first is new headphones. Mine were just old and I had gotten a lot of use out of them. And it’s always funny to me when you get new ones to remember what they’re supposed to sound like.

CP5

The second is also getting it’s own post and it’s an Erin Condren Life Planner. The one I got is the teal and platinum, has my name on it and is the vertical layout. I’m so happy with this, I’ve already started writing in things and I can’t wait to use it throughout 2019.

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank each and everyone of you for reading, following, liking, commenting and everything else. It means a lot. I hope you guys had a good year and here’s to an even better 2019.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great December and I appreciate you all :).

March favorites

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my March favorites. It’s crazy how fast March went by but here we are and I think I have a good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March Sephora Play Box, which I will link below if you haven’t read yet. The first is the bag itself, It’s blue tie dye and it says ‘Beauty Is My Spirit Animal’ in white lettering and it has dark blue drawstrings. The theme for this month was Festival of Beauty and it really came through with both the design and the products.

MPB1

My next beauty favorite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. This eye liner is absolutely fantastic and I can 100% understand why so many people love it. This is definitely going to be staple in my makeup bag.

MPB5

My second to last beauty favorite is the Amika Nourishing Mask. I used this in my hair two days ago and I’m really happy with it. Not only does it smell amazing, but it has made my hair extra soft. Definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a good hair mask.

MPB7

And my last beauty favorite is the Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm. You put this on before you put your makeup on and it gives your skin a little extra oomph and brightness. I didn’t know if I would like this, but I really do.

MPB2

Moving on, I have a couple of food favorites, the first is Tim’s Cascade Chips. I’m not someone who eats chips a lot but if I’m craving them Tim’s is what I go for.  The flavor that’s in my pantry right now is the Original Lightly Salted, but all the flavors are great.

My next food favorite is Kinder Joy. I watch a lot of British YouTubers and I always see them eating Kinder Eggs and Kinder chocolate and I’ve always wanted to try it but I knew the eggs were banned in America. So when I saw Kinder Joy in Albertsons I was really surprised but I picked one up and the chocolate was really good. And in Kinder Eggs you get a little toy, so they would make a great addition to Easter baskets.

And my last food favorite is actually a drink and it’s Sprite Cranberry. Sprite is my favorite soda and I do really like cranberries and the cranberry flavor and this didn’t disappoint. It was refreshing and the cranberry was just right.

My next favorite is Major League Baseball. Yesterday was Opening Day for baseball and I could not be happier that it’s back. It’s my favorite sport and I’m excited to cheer on my Mariners. Game 1 certainly was exciting and I can’t wait for the rest of the remaining 161 games. I think they’re going to have a great season.

I have a TV show favorite this month and it’s The Curse of Civil War Gold on History Channel. It’s along the same vein as The Curse of Oak Island, which is one of my top five favorite shows, but this one is about possible Civil War gold at the bottom of Lake Michigan. I personally do believe that there is gold at the bottom of the lake and I hope Kevin Dykstra and his team are able to find it.

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is Take Me To The Pilot by Elton John. I came across this song in a very random way, I was on YouTube watching an old episode of the Graham Norton Show, which I love, and Elton was a guest along with Jack Black and they got talking about the song and I knew I had heard the title before but couldn’t remember the song itself. So I looked it up and it’s great, a really fun song.

My next song favorite is Mr. Blue Sky by ELO. I’ve loved this song for a long time, but have come back to it recently because it’s a fantastic spring and summer song. It’s one that you want to play with the windows down.

My last music favorite is Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust album from their concert at Wembley Stadium in 2017. Top to bottom it’s a fantastic album full of amazing songs, I don’t know that I could pick one favorite but I love All Over The World, Rockaria, Shine A Little Love and When I Was A Boy, that one reminds me of my dad and if I keep listing songs I’ll end up listing the whole album. It’s on iTunes and YouTube so definitely go and give it a listen along with the other songs I mentioned.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did love during March.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great March :).
