Lush Review + More Fitness Stuff!

Spring is around the corner and it’s flip-flops, sandals and wedges season! That’s why I went to LUSH, because I needed something to smooth my heels. I recently tried Pumice Power from LUSH, and I love it! IT WORKS! This isn’t my first time trying LUSH products, but from my experience before, it was so and so. That’s why I’m thrilled to say that finally, I found a LUSH product worth reviewing.

I also had to get a new fitness mat. I got a Marika Fitness Mat and I’m excited to try it and use it daily!!! (Yes, I said daily.) No more excuses. I’m running out of excuses to NOT work out! And I thought I would get a pink one, but ended up getting this instead.

Lastly, I needed a new track jacket, preferably in black. I got the Puma Archive Logo T7 Track Jacket in Black.

It’s been raining here lately. Anyway, if you have any questions or comments, leave them down below! I hope you have a great weekend!

And The Winner Goes To…

Happy to announce that I have chosen my giveaway winner! For my first giveaway, I wanted to give an abstract painting of “Noel” word art on canvas! It is very fitting for the holidays. Thank you for those who were interested in joining. I made a small announcement of it on my Facebook group and Instagram, in case you wonder where I posted about it. I am also very excited for the coming week! It’s officially the holidays season and Christmas is just around the corner. I think I have an idea of what to get my little nephew! *Shhhhh!*

So I’m debating whether or not to make a Christmas wishlist as a blog post. I have done it on several the occasions in the past. I don’t know what I would want to be honest, but candles are always nice. It would be boring if I made a blog post just about candles, right? So I might not.

Oh, and I got layers when I got my haircut a few weeks ago. I LOVE IT! It is now medium length, and I felt weight off of me. Anyhow, I am getting a hang of posting on my blog again lately, which is nice. Have a blessed weekend!

Trying What’s New

Recently, I got myself a new ceramic mini straightening iron by Conair. It’s the cutest thing, ever! I can see myself packing it around if needed. I like it a lot. Along with it, went to CVS and got the Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector Straightening Mist by Garnier. It has argan oil, and it also acts as heat protection and the description says it also leaves the hair smooth and shiny. I’m loving both products!!!

Today, I finally tried The Halal Guys for lunch. I’ve been curious for a long time now. Anyway, I can’t believe we are halfway through November already. I plan on making seasonal related paintings, just a few. So please stay tuned for those. Oh, and I’m trying to look for a new gym. But if I can’t find one, I might go back to my old gym and renew my membership there. We shall see. With that all said…

My Desk + Current Favorites!

Happy Thursday! I recently re-organized my desk / workspace area. I love how it turned out! It’s motivating and I can’t get enough of it, so I wanted to share.

I also have current favorites, mostly beauty products and stuff I use when I workout:

currentfaves

1. EOS Ultra Moisturizing Shave Cream (Pomegranate Raspberry) – I finally tried this and it’s the best shaving cream I have tried! It lives up to my expectations. Glad I’m using it now.

2. EOS Hand Lotion (Berry Blossom) – I have been using this hand lotion for quite some time now and I really, really love it!

3. Bare Republic SPF 30 Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion – I got this sunscreen in one of the beauty events I have attended. Since I started walking to exercise outdoors, I was glad I got this. I highly recommend this product and will re-purchase when I run out!

4. Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom Home Candle – This was a gift to me from my brother. I kept it in the box and packaging for a long time. It smells so good! I haven’t burned it yet, but I’m using it for decoration on my desk for the meantime.

5. Nike ‘Zoom Fit’ Mesh Training Shoe (Women) – I love the color of these bright workout shoes. It’s not as comfortable as the Nike Free Runs, but I like to alternate with this.

6. L’Occitane Nourishing Shea Butter Gift – I got this for free, but I already know I would like it because I love L’Occitane’s products!

7. Kate Spade New York Wit and Wisdom Mug – Got this mug from my Mom. I love cute mugs + Kate Spade, I also love coffee and tea. So this mug is a must have for me!

Hope you are having a good week! Thanks for reading my post. God bless! xoxo

Product I’m trying for the first time!

So I’m trying a new shampoo that I just got from CVS. I kid you not, but I have been looking for this specific scent for a long time. I finally saw it today! I’m ecstatic to try it for the first time. I did not get the conditioner though, because I normally do not use conditioner anyway.

IMG_0006

It is the OGX in Cherry Blossom Shampoo. The description says: Lightly quench strands with the help of this alluring blend with cherry blossom extract and green tea. It helps to boost shine and body while evoking the graceful beauty of the exotic blossoms of Japan.

Speaking of hair, I found a photo of my hair when it was darker. I love the curls on this.

Long hair can be hard to maintain, but I love having long hair. I’m just so excited to finally try this product to my hair. Has anyone seen this or tried it? Let me know if you have.

God bless and have a wonderful week, loves!

Happy Monday! + Let’s talk soaps.

Hello! I’m trying new bath soaps! LUSH got me hooked. After trying LUSH’s Sea Vegetable Soap, which I got from Generation Beauty… I knew I wanted to get either the same or get another soap from L’Occitane. I knew that L’Occitane have Rose scents at their stores, so I was excited to try out their Bonne Mere Soap – Rose. Also, I signed up for L’Occitane’s email newsletter, and from time to time they offer free stuff! So yesterday, when I got my Rose soap I get to choose a free Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap, and I chose the Verbena (pictured on the top right). So awesome!

On other news, my MacBook Pro’s trackpad is not functioning as it is supposed to. I already called Apple’s technical support, and had to arrange a Genious Bar appointment. I’m hoping it is fixable at the store. I have the feeling it got “messed up” because my nephew loves to watch his cartoons on Youtube, and basically play with my computer. That’s kinda okay, because he is so darn cute! So anyway, I hope you’re having a great Monday and I’m drinking my decaf coffee. Let’s seize the day! God bless. (Photo via Pinterest)

Just The Little Things!

zarasalefaves

Lately, I have been shopping at Zara. It’s about time, I say. Since there wasn’t any Zara nearby me before. They have a huge sale going on, by the way. I got a few things and I wish I can post them, but I only found one of the items I got on their website. It is the first checkered patterned top on the upper left. I also got some jeans, another top and a long cardigan like sweater. I love the quality of them.

I also got the new The Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette by Maybelline. I don’t really use eyeshadows, but I’m starting to learn how to do that. I find it harder to put on eyeshadow, and mix to blend out colors on my eyelids, believe it or not. I feel more comfortable painting on canvas than mixing eyeshadows! I haven’t even opened it, but I can tell that these colors are pretty!

Christmas Wishlist!

christmas_wishlist2015

I thought I’d share my Christmas wish list of things. I had a hard time thinking of what I should have on the list and I am beyond grateful because God is good, as always. I haven’t been blogging lately so I thought I should update. Here are some things I wouldn’t mind having. In no particular order:

1. ‘Rayne’ Tassel Pendant Necklace – This necklace would add a nice pop of color to an outfit!

2. ‘Reva’ Logo Dial Double Wrap Leather Strap Watch, 28mm – I think this watch is a classic piece. You can wear it anytime, whether dressed up or down.

3. ‘Layla’ Headphones – I have seen these around. It looks cool & chic!

4. Starbucks Gift Card – Just gimme a Starbucks gift card! I’m happy.

5. YSL Volupté Tint-In-Oil (Pink About Me) – Can’t get enough lippy! This seems to be a nice one.

6. Floppy Wool Hat – I’m pairing a lot of Olive Green accessories this season!

7. Samsung GALAXY Camera™ 2 Wi-Fi (White) – I need a new camera! I’m not even sure which kind I really want because I haven’t done much research. I like this one because it is in white. I am looking for a cute white camera!

If you want to check out my Christmas wish list last year, you may do so here. I am so excited and feeling festive that Christmas is near. I hope to spend it with family and have a good time. Hope you have a blessed day! Thanks for reading.

Boots // Hat // Ring // Perfume

Hi there! I just want to share my current favorites. It is still summer, but that’s okay. I see this as a transition to Fall, sort of? I mean you can definitely still wear these for summer and also on cold days like in the Fall and Winter. Currently eating ice cream, Haagen Dazs chocolate. Yum!

Okay, I just felt like sharing these. I was excited to put these little things together as my current favorites. What are your current favorites? Hope you have a lovely week!!!

New blog layout + GenBeauty 2015!

Hello lovelies! So I did not officially announce on the this blog that I decided to change my layout. What do you think of it? Personally, I think that it is harder to navigate, but a new look doesn’t hurt. I’m sticking to a feminine, light and whimsical theme. Let me know your thoughts!

IMG_4675

This past weekend, I attended Generation Beauty 2015. I volunteer for this event by Ipsy since last year. I am thankful because it is such a blast to be there. I basically help out and get to meet amazing people there as well. Plus, I get a bag full of makeup goodies!
