March Favorites 2016

Hello, Lovelies! I know how awful I have been about posting. I even made it a goal to be consistent this year and I've already failed. I wanted to post though and figured since it was the beginning of April, I should do a March Favorites. There have been a lot of new products that I have been loving and I wanted to share them with you. 

NKD Black Clay Mask | I've never posted about NKD BODY but I have been using their products for a while now and absolutely love them. It is a brand by one of my favorite YouTubers, Brittney Lee Saunders, and it is amazing! The Black Clay Mask spreads easily on your face and leaves your skin feeling extremely soft after rinsing. Other than the fact that this stuff is incredible for your skin, it doesn't leave any stains or residue in the shower which has happened to me with other brands. I'm really looking forward to giving their Pink Clay Mask a try!

Carol's Daughter Sacred Tiare Shampoo & Conditioner | I have been a massive fan of Shea Moisture hair products and still am but recently I wanted to change up my shampoo and conditioner. When I was in Target, I noticed Carol's Daughter which I had never seen before. I immediately liked that the product was sulfate-free but then I unscrewed the cap and took a sniff. This stuff smells amazing! It lathers up with very little product and the scent stays on your hair for days.

Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy Daily Skin Therapy | I wrote about my love for Serious Serum in my August Favorites 2015 and I still believe that it is a great product especially for ingrown hairs. However, I have found a product that has cleared up my KP (Keratosis Pilaris) much faster and at about half the cost. I noticed immediate improvement in the KP on my arms and legs after just two uses of the Daily Skin Therapy. I am so excited with these results and just in time for the hot weather. My one complaint is that the product seems to ball up on my skin and fall off in my bed. Lotions tend to ball up on my skin so maybe it is just me but the product must get into my skin because I'm seeing results. 

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream | I am not skilled with makeup in any way, shape, or form so I go for very simple and easy to use products. I have used Maybelline for years and have not found a brand that works better for my skin. I absolutely love this BB cream. My skin doesn't feel like it's being suffocated and doesn't have a negative reaction. This product goes on the face easily and blends well.

e.l.f. Smudge Pot - Cruisin Chic | Again, simple and easy to use. Great pigment, lasts all day. And, of course, e.l.f. is extremely affordable!

Lemon Verbena Soy Candle | The Pure.Clean.Soy candles from Target are simply the best! They have amazing scents that are pleasant and not sickly in any way. These burn super clean and the smell fills the whole room.

Olivia by One Direction | I know Made In The A.M. has been out for a while now but I really think it is a great fun album. Olivia is a song that I find so catchy and happy! When it comes on, I kind of just bop around to it. A really great track for spring!

Dear Santa 2015

Hello everyone! Sorry I have been so MIA! My plan to post regularly this year has not worked out at all. Since it is nearly Christmas and Dear Santa 2014 is my most loved post, I figured I needed to write Santa again. As with last year's post, this is a "wish list". I do not expect nor anticipate that my family and friends will spend this kind of money on me. I truly believe that the spirit of Christmas presents itself through our actions not through what we buy. Happy List-making!

Autumn Air: Scents for Fall 2015

Hello everybody! So I get pretty excited for fall because that means Christmas is right around the corner. In Southern California it is still very hot. It is currently 99 degree outside which makes it hard to get into the fall spirit. Though I can't don coats, scarves, and vests just yet, I have started burning some fall candles. I have been burning Yankee Candle's Spiced Pumpkin for the month of September and can't wait to have these scents surrounding me until November.
