Nip and Fab

As you know when it comes to skincare I’m very honest about what I like and don’t like. Well with the winter weather in full swing, my skin has been getting so dry lately especially after a hot shower. I can’t stand when it feels dry. It’s itchy, feels rough and of course it feels like someone is tugging on your skin. When I received the Nip and Fab products, I was so excited to try these out. First of all, I’ve never heard of this brand before. Like ever. So I was definitely curious and anxious to try them and see how well these were. They sent me their: Exfoliate Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme, Dragon’s Blood Fix Pumping Serum, and Dragon’s Blood Fix Plumping Mask. 

Holiday Must Haves – Christmas Edition

It’s no secret that I LOVE Christmas. Ever since I was a little, Christmas has always been my favorite holiday because of the decorations and the time we get to spend with our family. Being hispanic and growing up in New York we would always go to a family members house and all of us kids would have a ball opening up our presents. Now that I’m an adult decorating my apartment is the highlight of my life. I get to go to Hobby Lobby, Target or Walmart find the cutest Christmas decorations and pick out what I want for my living room, kitchen and bathrooms. It’s also something that my boys love to do. We even got them their own mini Christmas tree for their room. They love it. So today I wanted to share with you; Holiday Must Haves – Christmas Edition. 

What I’m Thankful For

Thanksgiving is tomorrow!!! I’m so excited to be spending it with my family, eating lots of delicious food and of course desserts. I’m always in charge of desserts so this year I’m making 3 pies! Pumpkin pie, Apple Pie and S’mores Pie. But it’s also that time of the year where we share what we’re thankful for. There’s always a lot to be thankful for no matter how bad life can be, especially right now with everything that’s going on in the world.  Be thankful for what you have. Your life, no matter how bad you think it is, is someone else’s fairy tale. – Wale Ayeni

Beauty Mix: A Thanksgiving Look

This weeks beauty mix is all about the Thanksgiving makeup look. For me I wanted to do a simple but bold look. Usually I do a nude lipstick and bold eyes but this year I think I’ll be doing the neutral eye and bold lip. We shall see. I’m usually in the kitchen on Thanksgiving day and I’m sure some of you will be too so this look was super easy to do and I’m sure you can pull it off as well. 

Holiday Gift Guide: Blog Friends

You know what I love about blogging? The friendships you create. Blogging has definitely been an awesome experience for me. Since I decided to do blogging full time in January 2015 I knew that I wanted to make new friends even though I wasn’t close to them. There’s something about having a connection with someone else about blogging is awesome! I’ve gotten closer to them because of blogging.  Because of the holidays even though we can’t be there to celebrate with our friends what a better way to send them a cute package for the holidays. I created this Holiday Gift Guide for blog friends.

Travel Essentials for the Holidays

With the holidays being around the corner today I’m going to be sharing with you some Travel Essentials for the Holidays to keep you prepared and sane. Holiday traveling can be quite a pain sometimes especially with this kids. Let’s be honest we’ve always forgotten something in our bags especially something for the kids or we have to run to the our local coffee shop to get coffee because there’s no time to sit down at home and enjoy it. 

Beauty Mix: Red

Holiday makeup looks are in full blown gear. I love creating holiday makeup looks and this week it’s all about the Beauty Mix: Red. Let’s be real here, we all know we can rock the red lipstick. You can wear it by simply wearing no eyeshadow and with some mascara but today I did a sultry smokey glam look to go with the red lipstick.  I usually love to rock the simple wing liner with the red lipstick and some neutral eyeshadow but this makeup is completely different. I used the Morphe 35F palette to create this look. 

Holiday Gift Guide: Makeup Edition

EEK! Can’t believe that Christmas is 41 days and Black Friday is next FRIDAY!!! WHOA. Since Black Friday is next week and I know some of you will be doing some shopping (NOT ME!), I wanted to share with you a gift guide for your makeup lover friends. Sometimes shopping for people that love makeup can be a hit or miss but to be honest they’ll still use it either ways.
