Amazon Favorites: Beauty

Like most millennials, I’m obsessed with Amazon. I love that so many of my tried and true favorite brands are now being sold on Amazon and it makes me equally as excited when I find new hidden gem product’s and it’s an extra bonus when they happen to be prime products and/or a great price too. With having so many Amazon beauty favorites I thought it’d be fun to do a blog post sharing them in one place for you to reference. All of these products would make for fabulous gifts for your skin care & beauty obsessed friend + with only 8 days until Christmas left to shop, Amazon Prime two day shipping is here for the win.

Friyay Favorites {October 5th}

Happy happy Friyay y’all! Whew, we made it. It’s been quite the week for me as we packed up our house and moved it all to the garage to prepare for the inside of our house to be painted from ceiling to floor. After paint we’ll get the floors going and then hopefully be back into normal living conditions in 3-4 weeks!  ANYWAYS, I’m super excited for this weekend, if you’re from Kansas City y’all should be sure to come by the HMK store on the plaza to celebrate their 5th birthday!

Favorite Hair Care Products & Tools

So if you’ve been following my Instagram post’s and stories you saw that I chopped some major length off my hair last week, 5 inches to be exact. My hair started to take on some major damage this spring and I think it was a mixture of coloring my hair blonde, using too high of a heat setting on my curling iron along with not using the best products and especially heat protecting products on my hair. I’ve also really slacked at remembering to take my hair vitamins, which I typically see an actually difference in my hair when I do remember to take them. Needless to say this was a much needed cut and I’m excited to have a fresh start at healthy hair again.

Sunless Tanning + SPF Essentials

If you saw my Instagram post over the weekend then you know that my go to and #1 at home self tanner is St. Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse. It’s the best self tanner I’ve used to date, it never leaves streaks and always leaves my skin with a natural glowing finish. Along with St.Tropez I recently started using Tan Luxe’s self-tanning water spray and it is my solid #2 fav.

Today I’m sharing all of my go to self-tanners + tips and tricks for the best application process. along with that i’m also sharing my favorite SPF products that are essential to have in my pool/beach bag all summer long.

Holy Grail, Must Have Beauty Products

If you’ve followed my blog for awhile now then you know I’m a beauty product junkie and I always love trying out new and trending products. Over the last few years but especially this past year I’ve tried so many products both name brand and drug store. I’m all about finding the perfect ones that not only work well in the moment to enhance natural beauty but also work longterm to work against the signs of aging such as wrinkles, age and sun spots, enlarged pores, capillaries, and adult acne and blackheads.

 if I only had 5 min’s to grab items before fleeing These are the beauty products that I would choose to grab (after my dogs, childhood stuffed animal, and other keepsakes of course). my holy grail, must have, go to items that I can truly tell a negative difference in my skin if I go more than 3 days without using them. these are the products that work best for my combination but mostly dry skin.

The Best of After Christmas Sales

Good Morning lovelies, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend with time well spent relaxing with your loved ones. I don’t know about you but I’m chugging water, green juice, and making sure I’m taking my vitamins today as I 100% committed to a full on three-day Netflix binge watching/snack session, haha.  I started and finished season 1 and all that has aired so far of season 2 of the show Riverdale, anyone watch it? It’s Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl meets National Treasure in my opinion. Super cheesy/corny and right when you tell yourself ‘OK this is too much, I’m going to quit watching’ they suck you back in and you find yourself gasping out loud and dying to know the full story. The very first episode is what got me hooked so at least give it a try  and if you can’t make it past the first episode, well, you probably shouldn’t continue watching.

ANYWAYS, there are so many auh-mazing after Christmas sales happening that I wanted to share which sales I’ll be shopping and some of my favorites from a couple places. Get those gift cards and Christmas cash out and ready to use!
