Recent Makeup Haul

Hello lovely people! It has been a hot minute since I have posted anything on my blog. Life has changed... A LOT!!! In a VERY good way tho! Anyways, I thought I would share my most recent makeup haul I bought over the past few weeks. I found some pretty good sales & got some pretty nice items! 

I discovered Hollar(sing up & receive a $2 credit!) over the summer & found some great deals on makeup I haven't seen in stores near me, so I gave these a try. I haven't tried the Sugar Magic mascara yet, but it's on my to try soon list. I did try a sample of the Iced pigment powder & they are really nice. I will doa  review on them soon with some swatches.

 The Family Dollar near me closed, so a few days before they closed for good, I was able to score some more makeup(mostly lip stuff) for about 25 cents each. All of them are by L. A. Colors. Their are a few doubles of some of the glosses/lipsticks because I picked some up for a friend.

I got this lot of goodies at Dollar General. They had Some makeup on clearance & at the time, they had a sale were you got an additional 50% off sell prices. I needed a new foundation & concealer, so that was prefect timing. 

Walmart, Target & Family Dollar(a few weeks before they closed) haul. Out of all of this, I did try the Hard Candy primer stick, sadly, it didn't work for me. I ended up breaking out in an itchy rash shortly after putting it on. I had read such good things about it & had high hopes, wish it had worked for me.

It may take me some time to get back into the swing of things, but I do have some ideas ready! Thanks for sticking around & I hope you enjoyed! Please leave a comment if you see something you'd like me to do a review on 1st!

L'Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Mini Review

The first thing I noticed about this shampoo was the wonderful scent! It's very relaxing, so I like to use it at night & I even use a little as a body wash! It left my skin and hair feeling very soft. I do have somewhat oily hair, so I only use the conditioner from below my ears down(I have long hair, down to my waist). I was afraid it would leave my hair oily, but it didn't at all. It felt very healthy. My mom also liked it. She has dry hair and it left hers feeling soft & shiny, not dull & brittle looking. I recommend if your hair is feeling dry or looking dull and you're ready for a change.

Bandana Bibs, Unisex 4-Pack+2 gifts by Pashoshi Review

I have nothing but good things to say about these bibs. They are very well made. The back of them are very soft and do not leave any irritation on the baby's neck. The snaps are very sturdy. They help keep their clothes dry and cute at the same time.

 I used these on a baby girl that I watch and she looks very stylish in them. The gray polka dot one looks very cute with pink. The pacifier holder is nice to half. Whenever she drops it, I don't have to search all over for it. I have not gotten a chance to try the cup holder, but it does look like it might work better with a curved bottle or sippy cup with handles.

24 Pack of 4" Premium Baby Monthly Stickers By KiddosArt Review

I've come across a lot of monthly stickers for babies, but these have to be the cutest I have seen! I love that they are for a boy or a girl, not for just one or the other. The animals add a fun touch. There is even a fun sticker for the mama to be to wear that says "coming soon". The fox is my personal favorite.

You also get a set of first holiday stickers! Which I think is much easier then buying clothes that say each holiday(and cheaper!). 

They are each 4 inches. They are easy to apply and remove and do not leave any stickiness on the clothing. They are thin and aren't bulky when they are stuck to the clothing. I recommend these for anyone that is expecting or for a gift.

Just In Case Bag

I recently made a quick late night trip to Walmart and came across a cute item in the checkout line. I found this cute Just In Case bag that has 7 items you might need at any given moment.

It was the only one on the shelf at the time, so I wasn't sure if it was a Christmas gift item or not, but when I went back the next day, they had more and in other colors like pink & purple. 

The outside feels like a waterproof material, plastic like, but not hard. Plenty of room to add more items you might need.

Inside you get the following.

Nail File
Lip Balm
Shimmer Lip Gloss
Nail Clippers
5 Hair Ties.

My guess would be that the color of the items would depend on the color of the bag. I did not notice a scent or flavor with the lip gloss or lip balm. The lip gloss left shine, the balm did not leave shine. You get all of this for less then $5! Perfect for a quick gift for any female in your life. Some items even a guy could use. I plan on getting more to keep for last minute gifts!

Jackpot Candle Reveal & Review

I have been wanting to try one of these candles with a jewelry surprise in them for a while. Recently I found one on sale on Amazon & it was in my favorite scent, lilac! I have loved lilacs since I was young. There was a huge lilac bush in the backyard of my childhood home & this scent takes me back to those easy going days!

I know there are many different types of candles with surprises in them. I bought the Jackpot Brand. The scent is great, smells just like fresh lilacs. It fills the room quickly and is not over powering. Mind burned nice & even & didn't burn straight down causing a "tunnel". 

Mine does look a little uneven, but that's because I am very impatient and kept picking it up & moving to see if I could see the foil. You shouldn't dig around because it can damage the ring, but I will admit, I did stick a toothpick in it to see if I would hit anything. I let it burn for about 3 hours & then blew it out. Later that day I let it burn for a while longer & there it was, the purple foil! I did use a spoon to scoop it out. I was so excited, I forgot to get a photo of that part.

This is the ring that I got. It was appraised at $26. I picked a size 9. It fits on my middle finger better tho. The green jewel is really pretty in person. I liked it & got a lot of compliments on it. 

I will be buying from this company again. They have great customer service and always make sure the customer is happy. If you do have problems, they reply very quick and are very friendly. These would make great gifts. Besides smelling great, the surprise ring inside is such a fun treat!

I've taken prenatals for years. I don't know about others, but since I started taking them, my hair & nails grow super fast! These are easy to take. I like taking prenatals because they have just about all of the vitamins you need. You do not need to be pregnant or trying to get pregnant to take these.

These are, sugar, GMO, gluten, wheat, shellfish, milk & yeast free! If you have any of those allergies, these prenatals will be safe to take. They are also sodium free and have no artificial flavors or preservatives. They are safe to take while breastfeeding and even provide vitamins baby might need.

Prenatals are very important to take while pregnant. They have a very high level of folic acid, which is very important. Along with other vitamins like B12, help develop a healthy baby. Calcium and zinc help with the babies bone development.
