Bean Boozled Challenge

Hi, I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! Over my weekend my little sister talked me into doing the bean boozled game with her. I reluctantly said yes and I thought I would share with you all how it turned out. This game is interesting for sure lol, I have no idea who came up with some of the flavors but it makes for a very funny video. If you have tried this game before let me know how it went down in the comments. Also if you think I should do more videos/posts with my sister let me know, we had so much fun doing this! Have a great day 🙂

Memorial Day

Home of the free because of the brave soldiers flag patriotic holiday memorial day united states happy memorial day memorial day quotes:

Today before everyone heads out for barbecues and picnics I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all of the men and women who have or are serving our country. Too often people get wrapped up in the sales at retail chains or having too much fun and forget what days like today are for. If you know someone who has served or see someone when you are out today, just take a moment to say thank you. There are so many people who selflessly sacrificed themselves for our country, and they are true heroes. I hope you have a safe and fun Memorial Day!

Night Out Makeup Look

Happy Friday everyone!! I hope your week was fabulous, and if you are needing some makeup inspiration for a night out this weekend I have that for you today.

I did it for my cheerleaders competition last year and they all loved it (some wore it for hours after the competition lol). Let me know what your plans for this weekend are down in the comments!

Pinterest Find or Fail

Cinnamon Toast the Pioneer Woman Way. I've been doing it wrong my entire life!!! Seriously, this toast is awesome!:

I know many of us scroll through our pinterest feed and stare at mouth watering food, see the cutest diy’s, and find gorgeous makeup looks. Do you ever wonder how the recipe, makeup tutorial or diy craft will turn out if you tried it? Well I have, and some things turn out amazing and others don’t end up so well. Today I am starting a new series called Pinterest Find or Fail. We can figure out together what is really attainable from pinterest and what only sounds good in theory.

My first pinterest experiment that I will share today is a new way to make cinnamon sugar toast. This is seriously the best way to make it and pretty much the only way I make it now, it’s so addicting. When I realized who it was from it made sense, Ree Drummond from Food Network’s The Pioneer Woman put a spin on this ordinary recipe. When I make this I will admit I do not follow the recipe completely because it makes 16 pieces of toast. I usually make 2-4 pieces of toast so I guesstimate how much butter to use then eyeball the sugar, cinnamon, vanilla. Essentially you take all of the ingredients and mix them into the butter to make a spread, bake it in the oven and finish it off by putting it under the broiler. This is an amazing pinterest find and one that you have to try! Here is the recipe on how to make it: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/cinnamon-toast.html **Picture above is from Pinterest, however it is an accurate representation of how the recipe actually is** I didn’t have time to make this when I was writing but it looks so tempting I really want to make some now lol.

Let me know if you try this how it turns out. I hope you all have an amazing day and don’t forget to breathe the weekend is almost here 😉

Weekly Beauty Obsession

Welcome back everyone, this weekly beauty obsession is so cool it’s a matte gloss. I know it doesn’t even seem like a real thing but it is, the Loreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss. When I first tried this I thought it wasn’t gong to be matte but more of a glossy sheen but it truly is a matte gloss. It has a gel/whipped consistency when you put it on and it never truly dries completely matte. When you look at it straight on it has a matte appearance but when the light catches it there is a slight glossy look. For anyone who doesn’t like the matte liquid lipstick trend this is the perfect alternative to it. I can wear this to work and it will last a long time, won’t look cracked on the lips and it is so comfortable to wear for hours. I love glossy lips over matte any day but if there is that one day I want a matte look I will opt for this because it is very comfortable and it doesn’t dry out my lips.

IMG_6681 The color I have is 318 Bare Attraction, this is the perfect nude. It goes with any look that you want, which I love. If I am in a hurry for work and can’t decide on a lip color then I will throw this on and it always looks great. Let me know if  you have tried this, if so which color should I get next? I hope you all have an amazing day!

#bossbabe

 :  Good Morning lovelies 🙂 It’s that time again to accomplish something amazing this week.  I honestly never understood why people hate Monday’s so much, it is an opportunity to start your week being productive. It’s a time when you can set goals for yourself or figure out a plan to reach your long term goals. If you are truly unhappy with your job or what your doing with your life then change it. It probably will be intimidating and scary but life is way too short for you to be doing something that you are unhappy with. Now is the time to grab your coffee, put on some lipstick and hustle. Be the #bossbabe that you want to be!

Meet Matt(e) Trimony

Hey everyone I hope your week is off to a fabulous start. Over the weekend I had a little fun going out shopping! I haven’t had a weekend to just go out, relax and shop for a while so it was much needed lol. I have been eyeing The Balm Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette for a while because I love all matte palettes. No matter what time of year spring, summer, fall or winter you can make a gorgeous (wearable) look will all matte shadows. The second I saw this palette I got excited it has light/neutral shades and dark smokey shades that are perfect for daytime and night out looks.

All of the shadows are creamy, smooth, buttery and can blend out easily. However I was hoping that the black would have been a little more of a darker black, it first comes off a little grey but it could be good for a smoky eye. My favorite shadows are Matt Evans & Matt Lopez a warm and cool tone brown you can use in almost every look and these have great pigmentation. If you have this palette let me know what you like (or dislike) about it. I am excited to try this out and maybe have a tutorial or something with the palette up later this week. Have a blessed day!

Weekly Beauty Obsession

(The blue bottle removes waterproof makeup and the pink bottle is the original, I use the blue one)

Hey everybody I hope you all are having a good week so far. Today is another weekly beauty obsession which is the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. I have been loving this for over two months now and I still can’t get over how much I’m obsessed with it. If your anything like me, then you try to keep consistent with your skincare routine but there are those nights when you are starting to fall asleep and you realize you still haven’t even taken off your makeup. Which is why this micellar water is so perfect because it cleanses your skin and also dissolves makeup at the same time. On a typical night I will take off the first layer of makeup with a makeup remover wipe, then go over with this micellar water to completely get rid of all of the makeup, then go on to cleanse, moisturize and etc. However if I am almost falling asleep and I can’t bring myself to get up and wash my face I will just use the micellar water and it takes off all of my makeup, without drying out my skin. This product has become a must have in my skin care routine. Let me know down below what beauty product you have been obsessing over this week!
