October Ipsy Bag!

Hi everyone!

So I just recently received my October Ipsy bag and I wanted to share all of the products from my bag. This is a monthly subscription service that is only 10.00 a month including shipping!

This months "theme" was the art of beauty. 

1. Full size Zoya nail polish in Giovanna, I was so beyond excited to get this in my bag this month! You could receive one of three beautiful jewel tones and I would have been happy with any of the colors! Such a great formula and beautiful pay off!

2. Buxom Full On Lip Polish "Dolly" - This was another one I was so happy to get in my bag! It is a beautiful color for fall and the perfect size to throw in your bag!

3. La Fresh Oil Free Face Cleanser Wipes set of ten - I had never tried anything from La Fresh before and I am always going through makeup wipes like crazy. The only thing is you for sure cannot rely on these to take off your makeup or to really clean your face. I feel like these would be perfect for the morning when your face is already cleaned and you just need to re-fresh. 

4. Nourish Organic Coconut and Argan Body Lotion - Before receiving my Ipsy bag I had never heard of this brand before, but after trying the lotion I really do love it! It's USDA Organic and also sold at target! It kind of gives your hands a tingling feeling when you put it on and works so great! 

5. Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel - This product was probably the one I was not excited for at all, I have super thick hair and I really don't need any more volume in my hair! I really do enjoy Sexy Hair products though I just don't think I will get much use out of this one. 

I think that overall this was one of my favorite months so far with Ipsy! I was so surprised by the Buxom lipgloss and the Zoya nail polish! I really recommend trying this subscription service out!

Moment of the week!

Hey everyone! This week myself, my mom, and Joe went to Los Angeles for a day trip and to visit one of my grandparents! I wanted to share some of the pictures from our little trip because I had so much fun! The weather was warm and sunny; around 80 degrees! We went to third street promenade in Santa Monica and The Grove. Of course every time we head that way we always have Pei Wei, which is our favorite place to eat!!! We all never have days off together so this was a great day!

I also picked up a couple things from Lush, because I have never tried any of their bath products! 

I hope you all had an amazing week!!!

So this post is going to be a little bit more personal, mostly because I like reading those types of blogs and not just the same old beauty posts. Don't get my wrong I love those too, but I feel like you can really connect when you find out personal things about them. 

I have a lot of dreams and sometimes that makes it hard to narrow things down and say that's exactly what I want to do for the rest of my life. But I do know one thing; I have worked with kids since I was young from babysitting, nannying, working at a camp, to my more recent job of  being an after school teacher for first grade. I know that being a teacher is something that I was meant to do. 

I however do have other passions such as blogging, the beauty industry, etc. I am a very independent worker, and love to be my own "boss" I know when I have drive for something I can take it to the next level to succeed. So who knows where life will take me; career wise!

I have the best boyfriend who I know supports me in everything that I do, and likewise for him. It makes me so happy knowing that one day I'll marry my best friend and we can enjoy all of life and the future adventures to come! Almost four years strong and I know with him by my side we can do anything! 

I feel like having people who will build you up and help you succeed in life is so important as well, don't hang around people that will drag you down with them. Don't listen to the negative and love your life!

So I really hope that I didn't bore anyone with this; but really build your dreams and have goals, because it's so important to find in life what you love and what you are passionate about! 

Pinterest quotes section just gets me!

Loves of the week!

Love; That our apartment is really starting to feel like a home. My mom and I went shopping last weekend and scored major time on great deals for super cute "fall" like home decor! (I found the cutest pillow marked down from $30.00 to $3.00 on clearance at Kohl's!)  I was super excited because I felt like everything was so bare and nothing was cohesive in our space, now after adding some warmer colors and a really cute ottoman I really feel like things are coming together.
Love; Ulta's most recent circular ad, I was so happy when I saw all of the pink on the catalog for breast cancer awareness that I immediately wanted to go and spend all of my money there; which i sadly, but for the best resisted. I love that they are taking donations for such a great cause, as well as entering people who donate into a raffle to receive a bag full of pink beauty items! Ulta! They are also doing a cut-a-thon to raise funds to donate as well tomorrow 10/13/13!
Love; The weather! I have been so happy that the weather here in California finally is feeling like fall! We even had a very very small amount of rain, but still it was weather!
Love; That some of my favorite shows are starting to come back! American Horror Story started back up this past week, and I think that just from the first episode that I will like this season so much more then last season. Oh and the Pretty Little Liars Halloween special is almost here!!
Love; Fall nail polish. I have been obsessed with Essie's For the twill of it, and the lace is on!
I hope you all had an amazing week!

Current Fall Favorites!


Hey everyone!! 

I thought I would share with y'all my current fall favorites that I have been obsessed with!

My first is the Benefit Gimmie Brow Gel! I received this product in my hostess lash bash kit and I absolutely love it! It gives my brows a natural color and fills the parts that need it without looking fake or crusty (I know that sounds so weird!) 

Second is the Soap and Glory Hand Food, and let me just say...oh my gosh I love this stuff!! I had been looking for a hand cream for the fall and winter time because my hands start cracking and get so dry in the colder months. This product is the best!

Bath and Body works candles in general are a must have and a favorite, but the autumn candle has been my absolute favorite lately!! 

Next is probably the item that is the most exciting for me, and that is....my new pink iPhone 5C! I desperately needed a new phone after mine was shattered. It was right before the new iPhones came out and I couldn't pass it up! I love it and it's pink!!!

PSL's from starbucks are kind of an addiction, but they are seriously so expensive to get one everyday so when I found this creamer I was really a little too excited! I honestly think this is as good if not better, and it's so inexpensive!

My favorite perfume for the fall and winter months is Taylor Swift Wonderstruck, it is the perfect sent for this time of year! 

And lastly is throw blankets, I love being cozy and throw blankets are the best. I keep them everywhere, and I have found really cute ones at TJ Maxx and Target! 

Those are some of my favorites, I hope you all enjoyed this post!!!
