Show Your Hair And Skin Some Love 

#CauseBabyItsColdOutside

Hi everyone !!!! Omgosh I am so happy to be posting and sharing with you my winter hair and  skin care routine❄️💕☃️ I took a break from social media over the holiday so I could fully enjoy my time with my family but i am so excited to be writing and sharing with you beauties again. 

Winter time can be super rough on our skin and hair. The cold weather tends to dry us out and is definitely not a fun time ! Here are some products that I’ve been loving and have been saving me from the harsh winter vibezzzzz.

I started off cleansing my face with the Philosophy Purity One Step Facial Cleanser. I absolutely love this product guys ! It washes away makeup, cleans out pores, and conditions the skin. I would highly highly recommend this if you are in need of a new cleanser💕

Next up I used some of my exfoliating scrub that was given to me ! This has all kinds of amazing essential oils and natural oils in it and just really cleans out my pores and scrubs away any left over makeup or dirt on my skin. You can find these products on Etsy or go to Lush and grab some ingredients to make them yourself !

After the scrub I decided to apply my new Philosophy Purity Facial Mask. This is a deep cleaning mask that uses sea salt to naturally purify and detoxify the skin. It says on the bottle that marine extracts and vitamin E help skin feel soft and smooth. I can say I truly loved this product and it really made my skin look amazing and feel super hydrated and soft.

 


Next up I wanted to do a sheet mask ! I haven’t done one in so long and since it’s my day off and I am trying to relax I thought why not. This one is the Too Cool For School Egg Cream Mask. I absolutely LOVE this sheet mask guys and it’s seriously so affordable. Collagen and Egg Yolk Extract are supposed to firm up your skin and leave it super hydrated. Obsessssed. Thank you again Jaclyn Hill for the inspo on this one👌🏻

After I was done cleansing and exfoliating I reached for my Philosophy Renewed Hope In a Jar refreshing and refining moisturizer. I put this all over my face and then added a touch of Marula Oil to really hydrate and smooth my skin. 

I cannot tell you how much my face loves me right now. I feel so clean and smooth and hydrated it’s not even funny. This is seriously the best time of the year to hone in and really really take care of your skin. A few other products I used today on my skin and hair are below as well!

I’ve talked about Project Beauty HairGurt before and I will say it again….this product slayssssss. It smells like a strawberry banana smoothie from the islands and leaves my hair looking unbelievably healthy and beautiful. It’s made with probiotics and super foods like quinoa to leave your hair hydrated and rich and amazing. Check. This. Out.


Last but not least is a new lotion I picked up recently that I cannot live without right now ! This is an Ulta Beauty body lotion and let me tell you it is perfection. It’s made with Vitamin E and Shea butter so the formula is super thick and creamy and hydrates the crap out of my skin without leaving it oily. These lotions are super affordable and come in all kinds of amazing scents. Ulta love forever 💕

That’s all I got for you babes tonight but I am back and I cannotttttt wait to post more throughout the week. I have a Sephora haul coming up that I am so excited to share so stay tuned and as always I hope this gave you some skin and hair inspo !! Love you all very much and I hope you have a fabulous night

Friday’s are nice 

 

#EndOfTheWeekObsessions

 

 

Hi beautiful people ! I cannot believe Christmas is TWO days away💕💕💕 ahhhhh so excited. Anyway, I wanted to share with you babes some things I’m obsessing over today.

 

First things first I am on a HUGE false Lash kick. I am sooo sick of applying mascara for ten minutes and getting it all over my eye lid and screaming at myself in the mirror …please tell me I’m not the only one who does this 😭😭😭 soooo that being said I bought the Ardell Lash Look Book a few weeks back and dove in head first this week. I really really like the quality of these lashes for the price. However, I am currently shopping House Of Lashes and I’m sure will spend way too much money as per usual😐😐😐 the style of these lashes I’m wearing below are the Ardell 105. I think they are like $2 at the drug store 👌🏻


Next thing I cannot live without in my life is my Yeti. I have the 20 oz tumbler and I use it every single day. This has saved my life and my bank account ! I fill this before I leave the house and I’m good to go for hours. It literally keeps it hot forever and it keeps it tasting fresh. This brand also sells beer koozies, coolers, and other mugs. This tumbler is priced at $29.99

Moving on to my nail color and some jewelry 💋 this polish is seriously bombbbb you guys. It is so pretty and sparkly and beautiful without being over the top and obnoxious. It literally looks like Dorothy’s slippers. Ugh it’s so perfect for the holiday season and I am OBSESSED.

The jewelry I want to mention is my absolute favorite ring my bf got me from Macy’s. Its my birth stone with some diamond accents around the stone. I am so in love with it and him and I wear this every single day. If you are in need of some beautiful quality jewelry you guys need to seriously check out Macy’s. I have had nothing but good luck there. Also, I just recently received this Fossil bracelet that I’m loving ! It’s so simple and pretty and goes perfectly with all my other pieces😍😍


Last but not least are these Old Navy booties I picked up about a month ago. I was in desperate need of brown booties and these just jumped out at me. For being from Old Navy and very reasonable priced, they are so cute and super comfortable. They are def stepping up their shoe game.

Priced on sale for $27.99

Okay babies that’s all I have for you today !!! I love sharing with you the things that I’m loving and obsessing over. As always please comment and leave some love as I always love chatting with you all. I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday💕💕💕

OOTD💕💕💕

Gingerbread State Of Mind

 

#ItsAllAboutYourMindset

-A holiday inspired note to my friends-

 

I truly believe from the bottom of my heart that everything we do in this life is mental. The secret to success and happiness is visualizing what you want and going after it full steam ahead.

I am of the thought that everything we do is 80% mental and 20% physical. This means we have to train our brain to perform and our body will follow suit.

 

Ever notice that if you want something bad enough, you get it ?


Ever met a thin person who claims they can eat whatever they want and not gain weight?


Ever known a person who is constantly trying new things and being successful at them?


Its a mindset.


Changing the way you think changes the way you live.
Putting positivity and gratitude into the world will allow you to receive it back.
Live with a grateful heart and dream your goals into reality.

 


Back to the gingerbread:


For those of us who push through long work days, tough workouts, have families, have time-consuming hobbies, or are just running around constantly- our souls need a reward.


Around the holidays stress starts to pile up, food intake increases rapidly, and a lot of the time we start to feel pretty bad about ourselves.

 

Change that.


Find excitement in shopping for others. Give back to those who may be in need. And for Christ sake eat those Christmas cookies you’ve been staring at for days !
I’ve found in my journey that I can put in the work, eat well, keep my nutrition on point, and still cheat without consequence.

 

Why?


Because I believe I can. I know it won’t hinder my goals. I know I will bounce back. I know how well I eat, how hard I push in the gym, and how much I deserve to feed my soul.

Try this in your daily life beauties. Turn a negative mindset into a positive one and watch your life flourish. Take charge of your destiny. Dream big. And never, ever, give up on the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

Violet Voss x Laura Lee😍😍😍

#ThankYouJesus 

OH MY GOD beauties !!! One of my absolute favorite babes in the whole world, Laura Lee, released a pre-sale today at 3pm on her palette that sold out a few months back. She teamed up with Violet Voss to create these absolutely STUNNING eyeshadows. Thank you jesus above I will finally get my hands on this gem. 

LOOK AT THOSE SHADES😍😭😭😭😭 the excitement is real right now people. I seriously feel like Christmas morning has come early. Not to mention the names of the eyeshadows are seriously so bomb …ugh my girl nailed it💪🏻
In addition to being absolutely beautiful I truly love that she made her palette infused with Jojoba Oil, and it’s cruelty free, vegan, and super pigmented. I. Love. Her. If you guys don’t watch her YouTube channel you seriously are missing out. She has so much life and seriously cracks me up in every single video. 

These swatches from the website look so pretty and I love that there is a healthy balance of matte and shimmer shades and a wide range of colors. I cannot wait to review this palette and do a makeup look with it for you guys! 

If you’re interested in hitting up the pre-sale while these palettes are still available head over to shopvioletvoss.com

Holidays Got You Feeling Rushed?

#TwentyMinuteWorkout

Hi my loves! The holidays can be unbelievably stressful and have us running around like crazy people!! Who has time for a workout between work, holiday parties, friends, family, holiday shopping, wrapping, baking….you get the point! The fact is…everyone has 20 minutes of their day to devote to their health! 
One of my FAVORITE quotes maybe ever is…

“We all have the same hours in the day as Beyoncé” 



And let me tell you….that girl slays. 

And so can you!!


Find a space that suits you and some equipment. Either at the gym with weights or even modify this at home with body weight exercises.

Put 20 mins on a timer



Pick two exercises to alternate. Today I chose push-ups  and Bosu Ball Crunches with 15 lb Dumbbell 



Alternate these two exercises with some form of cardio in between until the timer goes off. The circuit I chose was as follows:

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell

30 jumping jacks

5 push-ups 

30 jumping jacks

8 crunches on bosu ball with dumbbell 

Etc… 



By the time I was finished my heart rate was up, I had a major sweat going on, and I had burned a ton of calories. Circuit training is honestly the best ! It combines cardio and weight training so you can skip boring 40 minute sessions on the treadmill and instead blast out a 20 minute circuit that will give you tremendous results. 

Next time you don’t have time in your day for a workout remember two things:

  1. Beyoncé has time
  2. It only takes 20 minutes

Thank you beauties for reading and I hope this workout gave you some inspo to get up and get moving and burn off some of those cookies we all know you’ve been shoving in your face (because I know I have) 

😘😘😘
