March Ipsy Glam Bag Review

Hello sweet friends!

Its IPSY glam bag time! I loved this month’s bag. The actual bag itself was so cute and so spring and all but one of the products were wins for me!

The first product I tried was the CAVIAR Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist. I applied the product according to the directions but I didn’t notice a difference in the amount of volume in my hair. I really wanted this to work. The only plus was that it did smell nice.

Next is the Illamasqua Percision Ink liquid eyeliner. This stuff is awesome.

It is very black, creates a thin line and stays! Everything you could want in a liquid eyeliner. There was no smudging and it was easy to use.

The Me Me Me blush brush is very soft and good quality. It is small enough to be able to control where the blush needs to go. This will definitely replace my current blush brush.

Next I received the Be A Bombshell Heat Wave Baked Bronzer. First, this is more of an illuminating powder or highlight on me. That being said, it is gorgeous.

It gives just the right amount of shimmer and color without being overpowering. This will be beautiful on the skin in the summer.

Finally is my favorite product! The Model Co Lip Lacquer in Morocco. This is so good! I will purchase the full size version again and again. It is so nice on the lips. It is smooth and long lasting without being sticky. It has a pleasant scent and leaves just the right amount of color.

It is already in my purse as my everyday gloss!

I hope you enjoyed! Let me know what you received in your Ipsy bag!  Overall, I really liked this months bag!

Perfect Summer Tan! [Safe and Affordable]

Hello sweet friends!

It’s that time of the year again! Skin showing time! If you’re anything like me, your limbs have been covered in sweaters and leggings all winter long! This Georgia weather has been beautiful lately so I knew it was time to show the legs.

To get a natural looking tan, I have used Banana Boat Summer Color Self-Tanning lotion for years. About 5 years to be exact. I use the Deep Dark Color version but there is also a Light/Medium Color for lighter skin tones. This is a wonderful alternative to tanning beds! (I hate tanning beds but that’s a different story.)

Before I apply, I make sure that I shave and exfoliate. I apply a nice, even layer to the skin and let it dry before getting dressed. WASH YOUR HANDS! I am yelling at you because your palms will turn orange if you don’t.

I find mine at Target and Walmart but I have also seen it at drugstores. If you want to find it online click here.

The picture below shows that process. The far left is no product, the middle is about 5 minutes after application, and the right is 5 hours after application.

I will warn you, a few hours after this sets, it will have a self tan smell (it smells just like a spray tan if you have ever had one). I always keep it on for at least 12 hours before I shower. You can apply at night before bed but make sure it is dry and you have sheets you don’t mind getting the residual tan on. It does wash out of clothing and sheets pretty easily.

This is the best picture of a freshly applied self tan that I have!

Thank you so much for your support. Let me know if you have a favorite self tanning product! Happy self tanning!

Weekend Wear [featuring Loft and Charlotte Russe]

 Hello sweet friends!

Today was an absolutely beautiful day! I have had this dress for a week and I’ve been dying to wear it.  I did have to break out the self tanner so my legs wouldn’t blind everyone! [I have a blog post about my favorite self tanner coming soon.]

I am wearing two of my favorite things, chambray and lace up flats! I am loving both of these trends and I love them even more together!

My dress is a new purchase from Loft!  It is so soft and comfortable. They are having an awesome sale. Loft is offering 30% off your entire purchase (40% off if you use your LOVELOFT card)!

I am also loving lace up flats! I purchased these from Charlotte Russe. They are also having an awesome sale! Charlotte Russe has their entire site on sale up to 50% off!

  

I paired my dress and flats with simple accessories and my favorite everyday handbag.

Dress: Loft, Similar // Flats: Charlotte Russe // Sunnies: Ray-Ban // Bangle: Southern Roots Boutique

Happy Sunday!
