BEST AT HOME WHITENING KIT

I am the type of person that is always smiling. I’ve always been that type of person. Lately I wasn’t too confident with my teeth. They have been very dull and off white. With work during the day and blogging at night, and being a full-time mom, there is no break. I’ve been drinking a lot more coffee then I ever used to. It’s really taken a toll on the color of my teeth. I haven’t been wearing bright lip colors ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// OUAI WAVE SPRAY

With summer officially begun, I feel like hair care gets more simplified. I love the look of beach hair that has a little texture and wave to it.  Some wave sprays have funny smells or leave your hair looking greasy. I have tried many wave sprays, but never seem to buy the same one again. Enter OUAI HAIRCARE wave spray. First off, this stuff smells like perfume, some may find it a bit strong, but it does not linger for long. It just smells ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// SEPHORA HAUL

I feel like I am always at Sephora picking something up; whether it’s something I need to refill or something new to try, I’m there often. I have known for a while now that IT Cosmetics is a great beauty brand, but I’m starting to obsess over their products. IT Cosmetics not only look good, but do good. Last week’s BEAUTY BABBLE, I talked about the Confidence in a Cream moisturizer. It’s truly is a life saver ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// CONFIDENCE IN A CREAM

I tried this IT COSMETICS SUPER CREAM about a week and a half ago as a 100 point sample from Sephora. I loved the sample so much so I bought the normal size! This brand continues to impress me. I use their BYE BYE PORES pressed powder and love it!  I was using this KATE SOMERVILLE goat milk moisturizer and still do use it because I truly loved it, but I tried this super cream and have been blown away by how amazing it is on my skin. ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// FUNCTION OF BEAUTY 3 MONTH UPDATE

I have been using function of beauty shampoo and conditioner for 3 months now and have seen the benefits from the customized formula. I found this shampoo and conditioner through Instagram and thought it would be fun to try. Most shampoo and conditioners are designed to be one size fits all (for the most part), but this stuff helps target what your hair needs. When you order your formula, you are asked to pick 5 hair goals. It’s hard ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL

Ok, so last week I raved about the Sephora Collection sheet masks I tried, BUT these were even better!

It’s one of the ways I relax and enjoy some me time. I was excited to try these sheet masks mainly because they contain egg yolk extracts, ...

BEAUTY BABBLE// SEPHORA SHEET MASKS

My obsession with face masks continue! Lately I have felt that my skin needed some extra TLC. While shopping at Sephora, I figured I would try out their sheet masks. Each one is $6 and has a different purpose. I grabbed a few that would soothe my dull and tired skin. Anyone else have fun putting sheet masks on? Kind of makes you look like a creep with a hockey mask (you know…ahem… Jason), but your skin will love it! I like to do ...

I figured for $25, I could try all the face masks from Peter Thomas Roth and see which ones are worth buying in  the full size. Pink: Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair helps fight the signs of aging. It’s important to start using anti-aging products ...
