HomeGoods Haul & How I Styled It

Happy Sunday folks! I’m excited about this post because it’s INTERIORS!!! I feel like I don’t post enough interiors which is really where my passion is.

I went to HomeGoods and had a blast! Here are a few items I bought:

And here is how I styled them:

I’m really into blue right now. So this is how I incorporated it into my living area. I feel like it still gives a fall look even though it’s not your typical fall color scheme. Also I kept it super cozy and still rich with texture.

How are you updating your home?

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Magnetic Lashes Might Be the Devil

Hey there! My latest beauty experiment was with magnetic lashes. I thought ok great this should be easy…. boy was I wrong.

I’ve struggled with fake lashes forever! Anything to make it easier I’m all for! I don’t typically wear fake lashes myself but my clients love them. I purchased the Ardell Magnetic Lashes in 110.

They claim on the  box to be easy to apply! You get two sets of lashes with magnetic strips on them. The idea is that they connect around your natural lashes. The directions say to lay the top lash on top of your lash line and then take the bottoms and connect.

Simple right? No! I didn’t have much luck with that technique so I tried a lash applicator, I was very excited about this technique…. it made it worse!

Finally I figured out that the ends need the most work and maneuvering. I went back to using my fingers and I got it!

This definitely takes practice but after this experience I feel like I will just sick to lashes and glue! I might feel differently trying this on a person rather than myself.

It might be a while before I touch the magnetic lashes again.

Have you tried them? Do you want to try them?

Cream of Nature Pure Honey

Hey hey! Today we’re talking about a new line from Cream of Nature! It’s Cream of Nature Pure Honey. Perfect for this hot drying weather.

I have the shampoo, conditioner, and leave in. They are made with honey, coconut oil, and shea butter. Formulated without sulfates and mineral oil.

The shampoo didn’t strip my hair, the conditioner was extremely moisturizing, and the leave in was creamy and hydrating. Best part they smell amazing!

I’ve always been a fan of Cream of Nature, they really hit the nail on the head with this one! This line is extremely afforable as well!

If you have natural, curly, thick, or just dry hair in general this line is for you!

I found mine at Walmart.

Wall Tapestries

Hello hello! I’ve been looking for an interiors subject to share and finally I have it! Wall tapestries.

Wall tapestries are fun and unexpected ways to take wall art up a notch. I have a big wall tapestry that is black and white with tassels but I haven’t found the right place for it yet. I was shopping the other day and found one a little smaller that fit right in with my color scheme.

I love the flair it adds to my space. You can have a lot of fun with them as well. They add texture and a little culture to any space.

What do you think?

Jade Facial Roller = Obsessed

Happy Father’s Day! Today we’re talking about my latest obsession, the jade facial roller.

There are many claims about the benefits of the jade roller, from lymphatic drainage to increased circulation.

I’ve used the jade roller everyday for the last 7 days straight and here’s why I’m obsessed:

  • It’s a facial massage! I deal with tension headaches a lot and facial massages help tremendously!
  • It’s cooling. I put it in the refrigerator for an extra cool.
  • It’s gorgeous. One of those beauty items you want to leave out on your vanity.

I think I need to use it a little longer to realize some of the other benefits like the circulation and product permeability.

I got mine from Marshalls! I most definitely recommend!

Lip Color: Yes You Can!

Happy Wednesday! It’s warming up outside your winter blues should be long gone! I know mine are!

Warm summer weather means bright  colors! Wearing bright colors specifically. From your clothes to your toes, summer is time for fun bright colors.

Today we’re talking about bright lip colors. A lot of people play it safe and stick to neutrals or their go tos they feel look good on them. It’s time to branch out and take a chance!

Try a bold red or bright pink! Makeup is about experimenting and having fun! Don’t ignore your darker colors this summer either! Both ends of the spectrum are fun!

Don’t want to spend a lot of money on colors you may never wear? Use the Sephora app to virtually try on different lip colors!

Have fun and find your fun summer lip!
