June’s Beauty Favorites

Normally I would be doing a YouTube video on this but the way my schedule is set up, I have two boys this week and I wasn’t able to do it. So for today I’ll show you in the blog my favorites and then I’ll do a video on YouTube next week. Sounds pitchy? FANTASTIC! Lol These are some of my June’s favorites. Featured in the image above: NYX Matte Lipstick // This lipstick is seriously my second favorite matte lipstick. Very pigmented and long lasting wear. It applies so smooth and you know how some matte lipstick are dry? Well this one isn’t. NYX Butter Gloss // I will be the first one to tell you I’m not a fan of lip gloss at all. But when I decided to get the Butter Gloss they were on sale at Ulta and I couldn’t resist. It’s soft, silky and they even smell good. You can apply the butter gloss alone or you can apply it over another same shade of lipstick. Like I did with the Black Cherry Lipstick in this photo. Swirl and Sparkle Brush Cleaners // If you read my review on this amazing product then you know that…

Herbed Baked Salmon

  My boyfriend and I decided to get some salmon the other and we wanted fresh salmon. We went to our local grocery store and they have a seafood market inside, so we decided to try out their fresh salmon. We got these two slices of salmon for a total of $10.50!! How awesome is that?
