How I pamper myself • At-home Spa Night

Hello, loves! I came across eSalon’s at home spa night graphic and was inspired to share my own at home spa selections! For those of you who don’t know, eSalon is an at-home hair color company with customizable hair color! So, for today’s post, I’m going to be showing you the few things that I do to pamper myself. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Light a candle

IMG_7364

The first thing that I do is light a candle. I’ve been loving this one that I actually got at Dollar Tree. It smells so good! Highly recommend!

Put some music on

I love music and everything I do is 100x better when music is playing. I usually listen to the self-titled Pentatonix album. Or Disney songs. (A wholeee neeewwww woorrllddddddd)

 

Face Mask

 IMG_7047

My number one thing to do to pamper myself is to put a face mask on. I’ve been loving this one from a2o labs. This is the hydrating one. This is actually my second one. And I think I’ll get some more soon for when it starts to get colder and my skin needs some hydration. I love the fact that it’s a sheet mask and you don’t have to rinse anything off after you’re done. It just feels like a moisture bomb is being dropped on your face. And only for a dollar? How can you beat that?

Painting my nails

Pure Ice – Busted (No Longer Available)

 

 

Now, for some people, this is something they do quite often. But honestly, I haven’t been wearing nail polish for the past few months. Because I rock climb so frequently, there’s almost no point in painting them because they’re just going to get ruined when I climb. So, when I do paint my nails it’s a very big treat. When I do paint my nails this is the polish that I almost always go for.

My friend gave it to me for my birthday and I’m in love. It’s a sheer purple/pink/green duo chrome kind of shade.

Hair Treatment

`Aussie 3 Minute Miracle

IMG_7118

Another thing that I do to pamper myself it put on some kind of hair treatment. I love this one from Aussie. I leave this in for more than 3 minutes. Usually, I leave it in for about 10 to 20 minutes. Then wash it out. It makes my hair look and feel SO soft.

So, that’s it for this post. Thank you for reading and thank you eSalon for giving me this opportunity!

August favorites •∆• 2-year​ Post Anniversary​

Hello, loves! And Happy First Day of Fall! For today’s post, I thought I would an August favorites post. Now, there actually is a reason that this post is late for a favorites post. Exactly 2 years ago I posted my very first post and it was an August favorites post. And I realized that I didn’t do anything for my 2 year anniversary on WordPress. So I thought that I would do an updated August favorites. In honor of being on WordPress for two years! These favorites are a mix of beauty and lifestyle products.

• Lifestyle •

IMG_6030

For me, I feel like fall starts in August. At least that’s when I’m ready for it! I recently bought these at dollar tree. Honestly, dollar tree is a great please to go for decorations. It’s even better if you have a huge one near you. I’m absolutely in love these. They just made me more ready for fall than I already was. I think they had one or two other styles of these but I thought that these ones looked the best.

In case you didn’t know, my favorite color is gray. I’m a sucker for anything gray so when I saw these tins at target I KNEW I had to get them. I actually first bought two but then went back and bought two more so I now have four of these. I’m in LOVE. Right now I have them on my desk two of them have makeup brushes in them and the other two have a candle and some other tools in them.

• Beauty •

AOA Studio Perfecting Blur Primer

FullSizeRender 2

I recently hauled this and I’ve been using it everyday for my primer. I’m really liking it. It’s very lightweight. And I fell like it really does blur my pores.

Loreal Infallible Foundation Blender 

IMG_6701

This was the sponge that I was mostly using in August. But if you saw my haul you would know that I got a makeup sponge from Shop Miss A and I’ve actually been using that one recently. But this was definitely the one I was using before that. I’ve heard that it’s a dupe for the Beauty Blender. I’ve never even touched a Beauty Blender so I cant say that it is. But, it is a really good sponge and I highly recommend it.

Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips

IMG_6066

This would probably be in everyone on my favorite because I use it every day. This is my favorite lip balm of all time. Highly recommend.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber, and Green Tea

IMG_6021

Now, to be completely honest I’ve been using this facial spray for about 3 months but I’m so in love with this that I had to mention it. I cant live without this stuff now. It’s so refreshing and just feels amazing. I especially love it for after applying all of my base makeup. I feel like it helps melt the all of the powders and gives it a more natural finish.

Clean & Clear Morning Burst Hydrating Gel Moisturizer

IMG_6020

I recently realized that I have more oily skin than I thought. And I wanted to get a gel moisturizer because I felt that the cream one I was using before was heavy on my skin. So I found this one at Walmart and I fell in love. It’s so refreshing. And it has a cucumber kind of scent which is amazing. It feels so nice on the skin and I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a drugstore gel moisturizer.

AOA Studio F19 HIghlighting Brush

FullSizeRender 38

This was another thing that I hauled in my Shop Miss A post but I’m so in love with this brush that I had to include it. It’s just the perfect size. And it’s super soft. Right now, as I’m writing this it’s in stock. So, if you can get your hands on it, GET IT.

AOA Studio Wonder Matte – Trend 

FullSizeRender 27

And another thing that I hauled. Wow! Surprise! But I honestly have been using this lip product a lot. As I said in the haul post. I’ve tried these liquid lipsticks before and really like them so it was no surprise that I fell in love with this color.

• Accessories •

These have been the sunglasses that I’ve been wearing recently and I’m in love. I got them at Walmart on sale for 2 dollars which was amazing.

AOA Sunnies Canvas Pouch

FullSizeRender 28

I got this on shop miss a (surprise). I’m so in love with it. Obviously, you wouldn’t get this to really protect more expensive sunglasses but for my, Walmart ones it’s fine and super cute.

FullSizeRender 10

One of my mom’s friends gave this to me from her boutique. And I love it so much. I feel like its really good for fall with the gold. It’s also very versatile. And I’m just so in love with it.

3 Piece Button set – TV, the other two are not available anymore. 😕

And the last thing is another thing that I hauled but again I’ve been loving them. I put them on my denim jacket and they look so good.

So, that’s it for my August favorites! And I just wanted to say thank you to all of my followers! Y’all are amazing! What have you been loving this month? Tell me in the comments below!

Shop Miss A Haul

Hello, loves!  Today I thought I would show you some stuff I recently got from Shop Miss A. Miss A is definitely one of my favorite online shops to order from. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s a $1 beauty shop. They have everything from makeup to jewelry to hair accessories. You should definitely check it out!

Just click on the Miss A image to head over to the site!

U6QmGn2r

Every Package comes bubble wrapped and under that its wrap with pink tissue paper. (Sometimes it’s different colors) I placed two orders about two days apart but they ended up actually coming on the same day which was awesome.

So, let’s get to the goodies, shall we?

I’m going to start off with the items that were the main reason I placed an order. (It was also just a little excuse to buy more things but we won’t talk about that. 😂) First, I’ll start by saying that the products that Shop Miss A make are cruelty-free. And I believe the brands that Shop Miss A sale are also cruelty-free. So, I already knew that Shop Miss A loved animals. But, then they announced that they were starting a charity program called The Paw Paw Charity Program. Where they are going to make limited edition items throughout the year where some of the proceeds will go to different animal charities that Shop Miss A has picked. If you want more info on that you can click here and read what their site says. When I saw on their Instagram that they were releasing the first two products I knew I had to get them.

AOA Studio 5-Piece Ova Brush Set

When I saw these I knew I had to get them! I mean come on! Oval brushes, cruelty-free, only $5.55 AND proceeds are going to animal charities?? How could I not? I have already tried these brushes and all I can say is they are amazing! If you’ve been wanting to try oval brushes but you don’t want to break the bank. Then these are for you. They honestly blend everything so beautifully it’s insane.

AOA Studio Super Soft Wonder Blender – Teardrop & Sculpted

They also released a new wonder blender. I have tried the regular wonder blenders and I’ve loved them for a while now. So when they said they’re were making a new one and it was going to be 2x softer? and pink? How could I resist? I’ve also tried this as well. And I don’t want to talk too much about these because I’m planning on doing a whole post on them and comparing them to another blender. But I will say that I would recommend getting these before they’re gone.

e.l.f. Slant Tweezer

IMG_6079

I just needed a tweezer. So, I just picked up this one. I’ve tried these out already and they work fine. I haven’t had any problems.

AOA Studio Wonder Baked Eyeshadow – Saffron

I was looking at this eyeshadow when it launched but I didn’t get it just because I didn’t know if I would use it as much but then I saw a swatch on @kindnessandicedcoffee‘s Instagram and I knew I needed it! I have used this shadow every day since I’ve gotten it and I love it! It definitely works best wet or just with a cream base.

3-piece Button set – Cactus, Stay Wild & TV

When I saw that shop miss a started selling buttons I got very excited!  I just got three packs of three but there are a bunch more on there. I’ve already put these on my denim jacket and I’m in love with them! Highly recommend!

Princessa PerfectWear Eyeshadow Stick – Copper Frost

I was looking for a copper shadow and when I saw this I thought this would be perfect. It is really pretty but the only thing it is a little dry. It’s just not a creamy as I thought it would be. But other than that it’s really pretty.

AOA Studio F19 Highlighting Brush

I’ve been looking at this brush for so long but every time I would want to place an order it was out of stock but this time when I went to go look at it to get it it was in stock! So I got it and I’m so glad I did! This is my new favorite highlighting brush and I HIGHLY recommend it! It’s absolutely amazing.

AOA Studio Wonder Cover – Porcelain 

I’ve actually had this concealer before and absolutely hated it. It just didn’t really blend out and when I did get it to blend out it looked horrible. Just patchy and cakey looking. So, I just ended up throwing it out. But I have bought two color correctors from the same line and really liked those. So I thought I would get another one and see if I just got a bad one or something. I’m glad I did. Because I actually like it now. It blends out much better than my last one and seemed to look a lot better when I blended it out. I use it for spot concealing because it is quite a full coverage concealer.

AOA Studio E122 Small Flat Shader Brush

FullSizeRender 25

When I was looking at brushes I wanted to get some more AOA Studio brushes but most of the brushes that they have are pretty basic brushes that I already have. I decided to get a brush that I didn’t have. And I go this one. All the brushes that I’ve tried from AOA Studio have really impressed me. This brush is good for packing on a shadow. And I also think it would be good for carving out your lid for a cut crease or carving out your brows. It’s  also good for highlighting your brow bone too.

AOA Studio Wonder Matte – Trend

I saw this color swatched on @didymosphenia‘s Instagram and thought it would be a perfect orange kind of nude for fall. And I was right. I already have two other Wonder Mattes and I’m in love with the formula. Highly recommend.

AOA Studio Wonder Liplocks – Chai & Latte

I already have two other liplocks and I really enjoyed the formula so I thought I would get some other colors. Latte is the lighter pink kind of color and Chai is the darker more nude color. Latte is a little too light for me to wear on its own but it is pretty in the center of the lip for an ombre lip. Chai, on the other hand, is AMAZING. It’s the perfect fall shade that’s not too dark, not too light and I just love the tone of it as well.

A2o Lab Face Mask – Hydrating

FullSizeRender 14

I’ve actually already tried a lot of the a2o face masks and really liked the hydrating one especially. So I decided to get another one for the winter time.

AOA Studio Wonder Skin Perfecting Blur Primer

I saw this when it launched and I was kinda on the fence with getting it. But then I saw on @shopmissa‘s Instagram that this was supposedly a dupe for a YLS primer. And I wanted to try it to see if it was any good. Now the first thing I noticed when I used this is that the “gold flakes” are just really small gold glitter. So, it doesn’t kinda disappear you just see gold glitter. But I don’t see it after I put foundation on so that’s good. I do think that it blurs and it feels really good on the face. Feels moisturizing too so I like that.

AOA Studio Mini Wonder Blender

FullSizeRender

When I was looking for the Paw Paw sponges I saw these and was quite surprised because I hadn’t heard anything about these before and then I just found them. I have tried this and do really like it. The point is really good for getting right up in the inner corner and under the eye. I’ve also used it for baking and it seems to work well for that too.

So, that’s it for my Shop Miss A haul. Have you tried any AOA Studio products? If you have, tell me in the comments below!

My Night Routine • 2017 • Random Friday

Hello, loves! Happy September! Fall is just around the corner and I’m VERY excited. I have a few fall posts already planned so stay tuned for those! Anyways, Today I’m going to be showing you my current night routine.  So, let’s just get on with it.

Take off all of my jewelry

The first thing I do is take off all of the jewelry I was wearing that day.

Change into pajamas

I honestly just throw on some pajama pants and a shirt.

Remove my makeup

I use coconut oil or makeup wipes to remove most of my makeup first. If I use coconut oil I use the LouAna coconut oil and if I use makeup wipes I use the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. Then I wash my face with the Clean & Clear Foaming Facial Cleanser. Next, I take my Simple Micellar Cleansing Water on a cotton ball and make sure I got all of my mascara off. Then I take my Clean & Clear Deep Cleansing Astringent on a cotton ball and go all over my face.  I feel like this really gets everything I might still have on my face. Next, I use moisturizer. The one that I’m using right now and LOVING is the Clean & Clear Hydrating Gel moisturizer. And last but not least, I spray my face with the Mario Badescu Aloe, cucumber, and green tea facial spray.

Brush my teeth

Pick up my room

I try to do this every night I find that this makes it a lot easier to keep up.

Get in bed

 Usually, when I get in bed I’ll work on a blog post, do some homework or scroll through Instagram. Then I’ll usually watch an asmr video and fall asleep half way through it. 😂

So that’s it for my night routine. What is your favorite part of your night routine? Tell me in the comments below!

The Beauty Blogger Tag •∆• MORE Monday

Hello, loves! Today I thought I would do a tag. I just googled a beauty blogger tag and this one popped up. So, let’s get on to it, shall we?

Skincare: Moisturizer Makeup: Concealer

Why did you start blogging?

To be honest I started my blog because I was bored one day. But I’m so glad I did because I’ve learned so much about my self and just the blogging community in general. And how hard it actually is to have a blog.

Random fact about your self?

I don’t like products in squeeze tubes. Mainly lip products but just in general. I don’t know why but I just don’t like them and I tend to not use products if they’re in squeeze tubes.

How much do you spend on beauty products every month?

Honestly like $10 – $50 maybe? I don’t know.

Describe your dream makeup haul

I’ve made both a drugstore and high-end makeup wish list so anything from those lists would be in my dream haul.

How often do you wash your makeup brushes

2 to 3 times a month?

Makeup defiantly. I almost never do my hair even if I do have time. 😂

5 beauty products you couldn’t live without?

Concealer, powder, eyebrow pencil, mascara, and tinted lip balm.

What advice would you give to a beauty blogger just starting out?

Be yourself. Don’t try to be overly perfect. Get a schedule. Be active on other peoples blogs. Show them some love, comment & like. It means the world to some people.

So. those are all of the questions! If you would like to do this then I tag you. Thank you for reading!
