This and That

I finished The Leftovers last week and it was so weird and creepy, but if you get into that kind of thing you should try it out! I am always fascinated by cults and end of the world stuff so this show was right up my alley. We don't even have HBO but I downloaded HBO Now on my iPad because you get the first month free and then you can cancel.  I also watched True Detective season 1 for the 4th or 5th time because I love it that much.  


I've recently been plagued with bad dark under eye circles and was looking for a really good concealer that would make them less apparent.  I had a friend suggest this Amazing Cosmetics concealer and definitely lives up to its name! It is pretty thick but easy to work with so a little goes a long way.  Most Sephora stores don't carry it and some have the small little samples by the checkout counter so your best bet is to order it online.  I am the color fair for reference. 



Did anyone else have a spurt of warm weather this past weekend?  We experienced temperatures in the 70's and it was so nice to be able to get outside without having to wear a coat.  I wish I lived in Arizona , Florida, or southern California so I wouldn't have to deal with winter.  I most definitely have SAD (seasonal affective disorder) where you are more depressed and in a funk during the colder months.  I'm really good at diagnosing myself and others with psychological disorders so shoot me an email if you want to tell me your symptoms! LOL. 


I get asked about 2-3 times a week if I am wearing false eyelashes.  I know I've posted about my routine before but just in case you are curious I decided to post it again.  I have been using Revitalash for over a year.  I know I posted about that knock-off Latisse a while back, but I still exclusively use Revitalash.  To me it works just as good as Latisse without the side effects.  Plus a whole tube lasts me almost a year so it's a win-win.  I put a swipe of this on my eyelids every single night and sometimes in the morning.  You have to be pretty consistent with it at first to see results, so make sure to use it every single night. 



I also still use my mother-in-law's face oil to take off my eye makeup and I swear that has a lot to do with my eyelash growth too.  I take two pumps and vigorously wipe over my eyelashes and then I take a warm washcloth and wipe everything off.  


Hope to have more posts this week including a video on how I curl my hair! 

TGIF


Does anyone have any new perfumes they are loving?  I have been on a Byredo kick for the past couple of years and recently got the Sunday Cologne perfume and really like it.  


I am also looking for new candle scents- leave me some good ones in the comments because I love burning candles.

I went to Forever 21 this week and found a lot of cute items.  You really have to dig for cute stuff there and there are always some hidden gems if you take the time to look. 

I couldn't get over how expensive this maxi dress looks.  If you have any sort of dinner or event coming up and you need a cute dress but don't want to spend a ton, check this one out! 




I ended up getting this suede jacket because I have wanted a suede moto jacket for a while but all of the ones I found were 400+ and I just didn't want to spend that much.  This one is very well-made and is the perfect transition piece moving into spring.  



This navy coat was so cute and different but they didn't have it in my size.  I can't find it online so I am going to look at another Forever 21 when I am in Kentucky next weekend. 


And these are the best scarves! They are very thick and give you that chunky scarf look that is really popular right now. 




If you have dry chapped lips this time of the year this mask is awesome - it comes in the natural color as well as tinted colors if you like a little color. 



I recently ordered some Herbivore skincare products- they are known for being all natural and organic.  I ordered the Bamboo Charcoal Soap and the Blue Tansy mask.  At first glance, I thought I was not going to like the Blue Tansy mask because it is very thin gel texture, however, after using it one time I was hooked.  My skin was so much softer and the texture felt better after one use.  I followed the instructions which state to use it for 2-3 nights in a row and then to move to using it once a week.  

I know I've talked about the Olaplex mask before, but if you don't have it already you need to buy it! I dampen my hair in the sink and apply about an hour before I plan to shower.  I am not sure why the hair needs to be damp first, but that's what the directions say.  


Have a good weekend!

Hello ... Can You Hear Me?


Hello from the other side! No, really, hello.  Sorry for the long hiatus.  PS- I am obsessed with Adele and her makeup lately.  I also love her haircut and kind of want to cut mine like this: 


Let's pick right back up with skincare and beauty products because we all know those are my fave! 

I've been using this Murad Rapid Spot Corrector  (it's only $42 on this Amazon link) for a couple of months and love it.  I can really tell a difference in the fading of my sunspots and freckles.  A little goes a long way as you really only need a small drop to cover your entire face.  


I have been trying to find a good shampoo and conditioner for ages that doesn't leave my roots greasy looking but that also conditions my ends.  I already only put conditioner on my ends, but sometimes I would find that the roots of my hair would still appear oily so soon after washing.  This Alterna Caviar Rx Shampoo and Conditioner is amazing! I've been using it for a couple of weeks and I think that I've found my holy grail shampoo and conditioner.  Here is a link for the duo for only $42 on Amazon. 

I've been on the hunt for a new eye cream and went back and forth between a couple but finally decided to just give this new one from Sephora a try.  The brand is one that I haven't heard of before called Farmacy- they make all their products with naturally derived ingredients which is pretty cool.  The eye cream has really good reviews on Sephora's website so that is also what led me to purchase.  So far I am very pleased with it- it goes on easy and smooth and I feel like it's helped with my dark circles.  


Since I have CRS (can't remember #$%@) I am not sure if I've talked about this stuff before or not, but I am in love with this hair serum and have used it for a few months now.  If you ever go to malls like I do (I love malls- my friends make fun of me for going to the mall so much ... hello! mall pretzel, forever 21, plus I get my eyebrows threaded there) you know all too well the people who harass you to straighten your hair.  They always try to lure you in with the question, "Miss- may I ask you a question?".  I usually avoid eye contact (LOOK AWAY) because that is the best way to ignore them, but one day I happened to glance their way and got suckered into taking a sample of their hair serum.  I laughed it off and almost threw the sample away in the trash can but decided I would try to use it to see what all of the fuss was about.  I used it on my hair and was blown away by how much I liked it.  I thought to myself, "OMG YOU IDIOT YOU LIKE ONE OF THE MALL KIOSK HAIR SERUMS. YOU FELL FOR THEIR PLOY!!!!".  Then I decided to check Amazon and low and behold, it's on there for only 7 dollars.  Long story short, buy this and give it a try- it's seriously my favorite hair serum ever.   Here is the Amazon Link for the HerStyler Serum

I found a new fragrance after a recent Sephora visit that I liked so much that I had to go back and purchase it! If you like clean smells, you need to check out the Clean Reserve line.  My favorite scent from the line is Blonde Rose, but I have samples for the whole line and they all smell sooooo good.  

Stay tuned for more beauty posts as I have a lot of items that I want to share!
