If you know me well, then you know that I have a huge love for skincare. Although I have normal to dry skin type, I'm always on the hunt to try new things just to keep my skin moisturized & hydrated. However, lately, I've realized that a lot of products I've used & have been using just isn't for my skin type. Most of these products dry out my skin very badly. Not really leaving it to look healthy or radiant overall. I feel like I have to continue using the product. Not noticing that it's really not doing my skin any good or even truly working. Which I've learned is the approach by most skin care companies.
Just the other day, I was sent some skincare products from Frank Body. I don't usually get sent skincare products. So it's always some excitement when I get some in the mail. Now, if you don't know who Frank Body is, they're an Australian based coffee scrub company. They rose to fame on Instagram. I'm sure you're thinking, "not another coffee scrub company!" Okay, maybe not but hear me out lol! I find their approach on IG isn't to be another coffee scrub distributor. I actually have their coffee scrub & it's pretty amazing. It isn't so gritty or harsh on my skin. I've tried other body scrubs & I feel like my skin gets super dry after using them. Or they leave behind scrub particles even after rinsing. I'll definitely have a review on their scrub soon.
I just tested out these products & gave a demo on my snapchat & Instagram stories. I'll probably do a YouTube video as well. Just need to figure out how. But for now, here is my in-depth review & overall thoughts on their skincare products.
This post is long overdue but Jouer Cosmetics just released some highly pigmented lip glosses & I couldn’t be more excited! You get 14 shades, all ranging from nudes to pinks to some vibrants. Some shades would be perfect for the summer. But they seem to work for all year round.
Let’s start with the fact that these glosses are super pigmented! One swipe of any one of these & the color payoff is amazing! Something a little unheard of with glosses. I think these days, a lot of companies are working on creating less sticky & more comfortable wearing glosses. Again, the color payoff is great. & most importantly, they don’t settle into the lines of your lips. I hate getting a beautiful gloss & it settles into the lines. They also smell like cotton candy to me! It’s a sweet but subtle scent. Continue reading
Hey, everyone! Last week was so busy for me! So drained from my job. I literally don’t have any energy to do anything once I am off from work. This week I picked up some shifts. I’ll be working 6 days straight! 😩 Need the funds but I am not happy with the thought of being there for 6 days 😭 I had to take a break from Instagram. I needed to recollect my thoughts. I hope my motivation to create posts for my Instagram will soon come back this week. I’ve been feeling a little unmotivated, to be honest. Depression is a bitch. I have products that need to be reviewed. Swatches that need to be done but I am feeling so blah 😕
Ironically, I’m here to talk about Instagram anyhow! I recently saw a post in a group I run on FB, about creating flat lays or flat layouts as they are called. A lot of people ask me what I do to create my flat lays. Honestly, they’re pretty easy to do & achieve! Here’s some information on how I create my flat lays/layouts for my Instagram. Continue reading
Hola loves! Bienvenidos! Recently I’ve been sent some messages that really lifted my spirits. I’ve had a few girls come to me stating that they started blogging because of my blog. Or that my blog was really good & that I should never give up. I’ve been super down lately! Super discouraged, so those words really helped me & allowed me to get by. This encouraged me to tell you my story & why I went into blogging in the first place. I think this would be a good time to talk about it 😀 Be prepared for a long story lol!
Hello, everyone!! Happy June! Can’t believe we’re half way through the year! This year is just flying by. So many changes coming about. And speaking of changes. If you haven’t noticed already, I finally migrated to WordPress! It’s taking some time to adjust but I am teaching myself how to maneuver through the site little by little. I was always saying I wanted to switch over to WordPress. But I had no idea it would be so hard to use lol! I find Blogger (Blogspot), to be easier to use. I’ve been using Blogger for years now. However, WordPress is a lot better for bloggers. As far as SEO goes & other plugins you can add to further help your platform. It’s pretty neat overall 🙂 Continue reading
Hey Y’all! It’s been a minute but I’m back & have I got a review for you! It’s going to be really long. So grab a snack, dinner, or what have you lol!
First & foremost, let me apologize for abandoning my blog. Things have been going on & I kept putting my blog to the side. & each day I went to work on it, I just ignored it & well, here I am 2 months later. I’m planning some things. I may move my blog over to WordPress. I’m about to create a YouTube channel (working on getting my camera & lighting as of right now). I really want to make 2016 something, even if it’s going to take me a while to get somewhere, at least let me start now. It’s gone take some time, but I will be more motivated to work on me & my blog. Continue reading
