Mellow Cosmetics Review + Swatches

How many of you heard of Mellow Cosmetics? If you haven’t well, let me tell you all about this brand. I was recently sent a few products from the brand to try out and all I’m going to say are GOOD things about their products because I was SO impressed by their products and the quality of it as well. Mellow Cosmetics is based off in New Zealand. They are a cruelty-free, vegan and paraben free brand. 

ghd platinum® tropic sky styler

It’s pretty obvious that the only way I do my hair is either straight or in curls and 8/10 times it’s curled. The only reason why I only curl my hair is because I don’t have the patience to do anything else with it. I always get asked if I use a curling wand or my flat iron to curl my hair, and to be honest I use my flat iron because it’s easier to straighten any short baby hairs I have or my roots. Today I’m going to share my favorite brand that I love to use when I curl my hair it’s the “ghd platinum® tropic sky styler”.  

Taste of France at Home

I’ve never been to France but it’s definitely on my bucket list. But planning a vacation to another country can be quite expensive. So why not bring France to your home. Today I’m talking how you can host a wine tasting party at home with French wine, butter, and cheese. No need to spend tons of dollars to do this. I’ve never done a wine tasting before and I was definitely excited to do this when I received these French wines. I had my best friends and my parents over to help me taste the wines. 

Nighttime Skincare Routine

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. I’m always sharing about daytime skincare routine and I realized that I haven’t shared with you, my nighttime skincare routine. My nighttime skincare routine definitely consists of a lot of misting sprays, moisturizer but most importantly vitamins. I suffer from dry skin, mainly on my legs and arms. Because of my dry skin, I try to find great products that will help me with giving my skin moisture.

As always I love trying out new skincare products so I’m happy to share with you, my thoughts on the Sand & Sky Detoxifying + Brighten Clay Mask.

Go To Midday Snack with Yoplait Yogurt

All opinions are mine alone.  Every day my morning is pretty chaotic. With having to get myself ready, get the coffee started, wake the kids up for school, get them ready/fed and I pack their lunches. I tend to forget sometimes to have breakfast or any at all. I’m sure other moms can relate. You forget to eat because you get so distracted with everything else that is happening around you. But I no longer have to worry about missing or skipping a meal thanks to Yoplait Yogurt. My kids take yogurts to school in their lunch boxes because they’re receiving 20% of their daily calcium so why not have some for myself as well.
