June Swap

Summer is in full swing over here. This months theme is Summer BBQ. Some ideas are table clothes, cute serving utensils or bowls, apron, or your favorite cooking spices. There are lots of options for this one. Make it Fun!!!!



The spending minimum is $10. You are more than welcome to spend more which I think most of us do, but please spend wisely. One GOOD useful item is better than a bunch of smaller items that might not be as useful. I hope that makes sense. So just keep that in mind when your shopping and putting together your package. Also, PLEASE be mindful when you are packing your items for shipping. Package them well so nothing is broken.

May Favorites

I have been MIA for awhile... I'm sorry. We have had a lot going on over here. We moved. End of the year school things. Work. Just life things, but I am BACK and I am so excited. With the move, I have found some inspiration. I now have a place to decorate and make my own, and I am so excited to share all that here on the blog. For now, though the past couple months, I have found some awesome beauty products that I want to share with you.


Take a Deep Breath Moisturizer- This is a perfect lightweight moisturizer that refreshes and restores the skin. I love that this is a gel formula that sinks into the skin immediately.

Sephora Baked Blush in Guava- I have mentioned this blush before, but I have been using it a ton again. The color is a beautiful summer coral color and it has just a bit of a glow to it. 

Tarte Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Slay- Now if you would have asked me if I would ever wear PURPLE lip lips I would have laughed at you and said HECK NO. Purple is just not my color. BUT.... This color is BEAUTIFUL. It's purple, but it looks pretty on every skin tone. If you are in Ulta just swatch it.

E.L.F Blending Brush- If you are in need of a new foundation brush look no further. Buy this $6 brush and you will thank me later.


Soap and Glory Body Scrub- You all know I am huge fan of Soap and Glory products. I love the body scrubs but am loving this one imparticular right now, because of the fresh citrus scent.

Dry Bar Triple Sec- This is dry texture spray. If you need instant volume and like the crazy tousled hair look then you will love this.

Too Faced Bronzer in Sweet Tea- I only owned ONE bronzer before this which is the Benefit Hoola and I love that for contouring, but I didn't have one to just add that summer glow. This Sweet Tea Bronzer is beautiful. It has a sheen but it's not glittery. It looks so pretty on the skin. I just bronze my whole face with it sometimes.  I just cant get enough.

Have you tried anything exciting recently?

Summer Glow the Easy Way -Benefit Hoola Products

Who doesn't love having beautifully tan skin? I know I do, but I don't want to sit out in the sun, and I don't want to sit in a tanning bed. I am a total mess when I try and use self-tanner. When Benefit Cosmetics launched their new Hoola products I was so excited. I love the box powder Hoola bronzer so I wanted to try out their new things. 


They came out with Dew the Hoola which is a matte liquid bronzer. You can use this as an all over bronzer or you can contour with it. It's a little orange until you blend it all the way out. It will just give your skin a sun-kissed looked. You can also use this to darken up any light foundation that you have. 


My favorite product is the Zero Tanlines. This is a body bronzer. It's an instant tanner. This will not last once you take a shower, but for me, it works great. It's not streaky and so easy to use. If I wear a skirt or dress and just need a little color to my pasty white legs this works perfectly. 


The cap comes with a sponge applicator. I just squeeze some onto it and start buffing it into my skin.


As you can see it gives just a bit of color. It's  AMAZING.


These products can be found at any place Benefit Cosmetics is sold. The Dew the Hoola retails for $28 and the Zero Tanlines retails for $30. I got both of my from Ulta. 

Have you tried either of these products? What are your thoughts?
