Comfy Day Essential Fashion Friday

I know I am not the only one who loves to hang out all day in my pjs and do nothing but maybe curl up in a blanket and read a good book or watch a good movie. I wish I had more of those kinds of days, but kids just don't find fun in doing nothing. How come?

 I thought it would be fun to share some of my lazy day essentials. For this weeks Fashion Friday. :) 

I am loving these pj sets from Victoria Secret. They are currently on sale right now. My favorite reindeer head ones are not online though. They are by far the cutest :) I love to curl up in a warm fuzzy blanket with a good book. I just finished reading this book The Mistletoe Promise by Richard Paul Evans and it was so good. I love all his books. I normally do not like to wear socks at all, but these shea butter infused ones from bath and body works are so amazing. I love the way my feet fill silky smooth after wearing them. No lazy day in would be complete without a heavenly Bath and Body Works candle. I just can not get enough of them right now. The holiday scents are my favorite. 

What are some things you love to do on lazy days?

December Ipsy Bag

Ok... So here is the deal. When I signed up for Ipsy I was not planning on keeping the subscription for forever. I just wanted to try it out to see what you get. I think I have only had 1 month that I was not impressed. I feel like they just keep getting better and better. This month was no disappointment. I was actually so excited when I opened my bag. The actual bag that came this month was the only thing I wasn't impressed with. But who cares I have plenty of those. 

If you do not know what Ipsy is its a monthly subscription service for $10. They send you 4-5 deluxe samples based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If your interested you can sign up here.

In my Bag this Month:

Nyx Butter Lip Balm ($4) - This is a tinted lip balm and when it says butter that exactly what it feels like on your lips. (full size)

Cailyn Eye Polish ($15)- This feels like a cream eyeshadow. I haven't used it yet but the color is a pretty pink color. (full size)

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara ($20)- This is what I was most excited about. I had been wanting to try this mascara for a long time now. I used and it was not disappointing. It was really good. Gave really good length. 

Bumble and Bumble Bb Repair ($30)- This is a blow dry serum to repair hair. I have been wanting a good heat protecting product for a while and so this will be nice to try. I have used it only one time so I don't feel like I can give a very good review on it, but I do know I couldn't feel the product in my hair which I like. I hate the feeling of product in my hair. This is a travel size but its a good size since you only need a tiny bit.

Nourish Organic Eye Cream ($14)- This eye cream will be nice to try as well. Its 100% natural which I can appreciate. I need to start taking better of my skin since I am nearing 30 and the fine lines and wrinkles are starting to appear. 

In total to buy these things retail/full size they would cost $83. So $10 isn't to bad to test these products out.

Do you have an Ipsy Subscription??? If so what was your favorite thing you got this month?

DIY Music Sheet Ornaments

I made these a few years ago for a super saturday craft. I have loved them since. Thanks Bobbi :) This year I had to make more, so I decide to share them with you guys. Aren't they GORGEOUS?? They are so easy to.

You just rip up old sheet music into thin stripes (the older the paper the better). Then modge podge them on to glass ornaments. While they are still tacky sprinkle them with glitter. I used vintage glass glitter which I think works better it a little thicker glitter and I like the way it looks. I found some glitter ribbon at JoAnn Fabrics to tie on them so I could hang them on my tree. 

I love the way they sparkle. I have some on my tree and made some to put in an apothecary jar. I think they would be cute also tied to christmas presents.

If you make some I would love to see them. Post a picture and tag me on instagram.
