Mary Kay Cosmetics: REVIEW

Hey guys!

So last night I went to a MKC Consultants home for a foot spa experience and here are my thoughts on the products and the experience.

I will be completely honest with my review... I will always promise you that!

I was not impressed.  I was expecting a spa like experience and what I received was far from that.  When setting up this appointment I was under the impression I was getting more of a pedicure experience but when we arrived at the house we were told she wouldn't be touching our feet as it wasn't her thing.  So we used the scrubs and creams on our own.  This would have been acceptable if that is how it was marketed to me.  I can rub cream on my feet at home with my own products; nothing 'spa like' about that.

The products smelled nice while applying them and seemed to moisturize well but after 30 minutes my hands felt dry and itchy.  Maybe too many additives?

I have pictures of products and can do a full review on them if anyone is interested but I really wasnt impressed with anything so unless anyone wants more information on Mary Kay, I think I will just move on :)

I would like to thank Gloria for her time and opening up her home to us. 

Please remember that I am just giving my personal opinion... You might absolutely LOVE MKC and don't understand what I am talking about here.  That is just fine :) I am quite loyal to my Clinique and Chanel face products and Bath & Body Works body lotions so I will just stick with those!

Have a great day everyone and do let me know if you want to see more about these products!

Magnetic palettes!

Hey guys!

I was looking around for some empty magnetic palettes and remembered Kandee Johnson talking about Z Palettes so I went to their website and was disappointed by their S&H fees!  It was $12 for the cheapest option which did not include any insurance or even a tracking number... That just didnt work for me!  So I have decided to make some palettes on my own! 

Let me know if you are interested in seeing a tutorial on how to make your own magnetic empty palette!  If you are interested in seeing this please leave a comment on this blog post :)

If there is enough interest I might consider making them and selling them to you guys!

I also smell a contest coming soon :) Who would want to win a palette?!

Let me know if you guys are interested!

Bath & Body Works CANDLES!

I love love love candles and I just picked up two amazing ones!  The first is "Homemade Cookies" and it smells exactly like that!  I have been burning this candle for a few hours now and it smells fantastic :) It is making me hungry!  The scent is inviting, not too strong or overpowering.  The candle also burns evenly as it has 3 wicks!  5/5 :)  Go pick one up today! 

The second candle is called mint chocolate... it smells like an After Eight chocolate!  I  haven't burned that one yet but I can't wait to try it out!  Just from the smell alone I am going to give it a 5/5 too!  I know it will burn the same as the first one because it is the same kind of candle... Just a different scent!

Some info from their site about these candles...

  • Highly fragranced candle exclusively developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world's best master perfumers

  • Made using the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks for optimal performance

  • Three-wick candle burns 40 to 65 hours

  • 4" wide x 3 1/2" tall

  • Yay for Bath & Body Works!

    Remembrance Day

    Today we give thanks and remember all of the men and women who fought for our country and gave their lives to protect and fight for our freedom.  It is to those men and women that we dedicate this special day.  Please make sure you take a moment to give thanks and remember those people.  It is also important to give thanks to those who are still fighting the war today.  It is hard to believe that we are still in the midst of a war; but we are.  Men and women are risking their lives every day and night fighting to protect this great country of ours.  To each and every one of them I am eternally grateful!

    God bless the fallen and those still fighting...
    When the sun sets tonight, please keep remembering...

    Hello beauties!

    I received my LUSH products today and I cannot wait to jump in the shower and try out my ROCK STAR soap and the BIG shampoo! :)

    I tried the bubblegum lip sugar scrub and omg it is amazing!!!  Smells delicious and feels so great!  I will try out the lip tint tomorrow and let you know how I like it!

    I just couldn't wait to tell you about the things I got :)  I will post an update to this review with my thoughts and ratings on each of the products.

    ~ UPDATE ~

    BIG shampoo rocks my friggin socks!!  It felt so amazing in my hair and creates a lot of lather!  this morning when I woke up my hair felt like marshmallows... it was so soft and full of body!  RIGHT AFTER I WOKE UP!  Once I straightened it and all that jazz it was still full and super soft.  I love this stuff! 5/5 for sure!

    Snow Fairy lip tint is FANTASTIC!  I didnt like the smell very much, to be honest, it is kind of "fake" smelling but it looks amazing on.  It is this soft delicate pink colour.  It gives my lips colour without looking like I have anything on.  Love it!  I don't like that I have to stick my finger in the pot to get some out; a stick would have been better for me, but I will just sanitize my hands before every use! Despite the minor issues I have with it I still give it a 4/5 :)

    The ROCKSTAR soap is a big dissappointment... whomp whomp whompppppppppp.  It smells so fake and plastic-y.  I am not impressed at all :( My skin was funny smelling after my shower!  I wanted to re-shower! I give this product a 1/5 and a thumbs down.

    The lip scrub, as I mentioned above, is the best thing EVER!  It smells and tastes delicious and works really well!  My lips looked soft and plump.  5/5 for sure!!!!

    Lots of love and big smiles,

    Hey guys!

    Hope you are all doing well :) I, however, am hurting!  I went for accupuncture just over a month ago and since then I have been experiencing some pretty intense pain in my lower back/left hip area.  I tried to shake it off but last week I was in a ton of pain and tried to get it massaged out... well that didnt work!  Today after my appointment at the gym I was out and about and then it hit me... BAM!  Like a ton of bricks...  I can barely walk without wincing in pain :( I am going to try getting in to see the doctor tomorrow and figure something out.  I am a busy girl with too many things to do!  Can't be sitting around all day hoping that this ache goes away!

    I will hopefully have some good news tomorrow :)
