May favorites

Hi everyone,

As this month is almost over, where did the time go, I wanted to do my May favorites.  This month I think I got a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it. Starting off with beauty, we have a couple of items from my May Glam Bag from Ipsy and if you haven’t read that post, I’ll link it below. The first is the Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense eyeshadow duo in Electric. The first time I wore this I used both colors and blended them and it was very pretty, but since then I’ve worn them on their own and I really like both colors. I definitely recommend it.

Next up we have the Pixi by Petra Endless Silky eye pen in BlackNoir. I always like to try different eyeliner because you never know what you’re going to like and what’s going to work for you and this really went to the top for me. It is really silky and smooth when you apply it and it lasts all day.

My next favorite is the Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour powder highlighter in Sin. I always talk about how much I love Urban Decay and this highlighter makes me love them even more. It’s in a champagne shade and it does wonders. It’s really glowy and it’s long lasting. If you’re looking for a new highlighter definitely give this one a try.

My last Glam Bag favorite is the Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key. This is a gorgeous color and it lasts all day, but beyond that it smells like cake batter. Like actually, and it’s fantastic. No matter what I want to buy more of their Lip Fondants, but if they all smell like cake batter that will make it even better.

And my last beauty favorite is the Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon shower gel. I’ve always really liked this shower gel, it’s summery and it makes my skin feel nourished. I just ordered another one because I’m down to the last couple drops in my current bottle.

Moving to I guess kitchen items, I have two favorites. The first is the Mr. Coffee 3-Quart Iced Tea Maker. I had this iced tea maker for absolute ages, I really liked it and got a lot of use out of it. And when it finally quit on me I had to order another one. It’s getting to that time of the year where the weather is gorgeous and a lot of outdoor parties are happening, and iced tea is a popular drink. So I think you can get this in three colors, but I bought mine in blue and I’ll leave a link to it below.

The next item is the Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven. I had been wanting a dutch oven for ages because there’s so many uses and you can cook so many different dishes in them. My sister has one and wanted another for her birthday, and after seeing the one my mom bought her I knew this was the one I wanted. I bought the Caribbean Blue, 6 quart. But you can get different colors and quart sizes and I’ll link that below as well.

Next I have two TV show favorites. the first I know I am incredibly late to the party on, but it’s Sherlock. I was told forever that I should watch Sherlock and I never did, but recently I was looking for something to watch on Netflix and came across it. I watched the first three seasons in a couple of days. I honestly really love it. The fourth season was just added to Netflix, and I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. So if you have watched season four no spoilers please.

And my second favorite TV show this month is on History channel. It’s called JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald. Basically a retired CIA agent, like a lot of people, was never satisfied with what came out of the Warren Commission report and since over 2 million documents about the JFK assassination have been declassified and released he wanted to do his own investigation. I am a huge history nerd and things like this really fascinate me. I don’t have as much information on this as I do other things throughout history, but this has more conspiracy theories than anything else, so it’s interesting. Last summer History channel did a show about DB Cooper and I loved it. DB Cooper is closer to home for me, so I have more information and I have my theories. If you guys have any theories on either, I’d love to know what you think.

And my last favorite for May is the song Thunderstruck by AC/DC. I’ve liked this song for a long time, as many people have, but I’ve been using it as a pump up song when I workout and it’s been working great. If you haven’t heard definitely look it up on YouTube. It’s a great song.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites this month let me know. And if not, I’d love to know what you’ve been loving this month.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you’ve had a good May :).

I want your input

Hi everyone,

This isn’t the typical blog post, but rather something I want your opinion on. I’ve been wanting to do a Q&A for a while now, and I want to know how you guys want me to do it. What I’m thinking is I can do the traditional blog post where you send me your questions and I write out my answers, or I could do a livestream on YouTube. Let me know what you guys think and remember to send in questions. The questions can be about anything you want, so don’t think it has to be solely about makeup and beauty. Anyway, let me know what you guys think :).

Everyday Essentials

Hi everyone,

I was going through my purse recently and I noticed that there were things in there that I was using everyday and after a while, had become essentials. The first thing I always have in my bag is snacks.

P1

I drink a lot of water throughout the day, so I always have a bottle of water. I’ve been trying to eat healthy more recently, so today I had a Kashi Honey Almond Flax chewy granola bar, a Kashi Trail Mix chewy granola bar, and some all natural lightly salted pumpkin seeds. I had the pumpkin seeds in a little Ziploc bag, but I put them in the container so I could snack while I wrote this :). I like to change up the snacks I keep, so if I don’t eat something I put it back in the box and switch it out for something else.

The next thing I always have is my makeup bag.

P2

This bag is from Forever 21 and I bought the matching compact mirror. I believe this bag and mirror also comes in pink, but I liked the black more. Depending on what makeup I’m wearing, what I have in the bag varies. Today I had my e.l.f. HD Powder, the e.l.f. Blush Palette in Light, e.l.f. Powder Brush, my eyeliner which is the Maybelline Expert Wear in Velvet Black, and two of the Hard Candy All Glossed Up Lip Stains, the nudey brown and the bright pink that I was wearing in my post A Little Bit of Everything, and a Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer in Beautiful Day.

The next essential is a lotion. I’m someone who in the winter my hands tend to get dry so I constantly have a ton of different hand creams and lotions.

P3

This lotion in particular I got for Christmas, have been using since and will soon be repurchasing. It’s the Bronzed Amber Obsession from Bodycology. I am obsessed with the smell of this. This one is travel size so I need to buy the full size and out of the lotions I’ve used recently this one makes my hands the softest.

Next we have a bit of stationary.

P4

In every purse I carry I always have writing utensils and a notebook/ notepad. This particular notebook I use mostly to jot down any blog ideas I may have throughout the day. It says Some people dream of success others make it happen and it’s from the Vintage Dreams Collection by Pink Light Design. When it comes to writing utensils, I always have a lot of different options. Mechanical pencils, highlighters, this particular highlighter is by Sharpie and I really likes these ones because they don’t smear and they come in fun colors. Pen wise, I have mostly black and blue, but I also have a pack of the Paper Mate InkJoy pens. To be honest, I probably use the InkJoy’s the most because the pack I bought had all the different colors and sometimes you want to write in hot pink or bright blue.

The last couple of things are probably the most vital, and that’s the electronics.

P5

The first thing is my headphones. These are just the standard Apple headphones but I really like them. They don’t take up a lot of space, they fit perfectly in my ears and based on what you have your EQ set on, there’s an alright amount of bass in them. The last item is my portable phone charger. This is the Red Fuel SL4 series Fuel Pack from Schumacher Electric. This is the 4200mAh Lithium Ion Fuel Pack and out of the three you can buy this is the one in the middle. These come in six different colors but I got the blue because it’s my favorite color. What I like about this charger is it’s lightweight, it doesn’t take up a lot of space, if you really wanted to you could stick it in your pants pocket, you can take it on an airplane and it can charge any device. Schumacher Electric has a ton of great products, I have one of their battery chargers, so I’ll leave the link down below. If you read my last post, this is the same Schumacher as Don Schumacher Racing in NHRA Drag Racing.

I quite enjoyed writing this, because it gave me a reason to dig through my purse and clean out some of the crap :).I also wanted to note that even though I didn’t include it I carry my wallet and keys everyday, and my wallet is from Forever 21.

Until next time, never forget an essential and if you can help it, remember to clean out your purse :).
