It’s truly a dream to have this little creative corner on the internet and it wouldn’t be possible without y’all, so THANK YOU! I am so excited for 2019 which I have big hopes and dreams for, but first I thought it’d be fun to do a post to reflect on 2018. Excited to share my top 9 Instagram post’s, top 10 blog post’s along with the tops product’s y’all loved and bought this past year.Continue reading for all the details
Consider this your Elle Mae Blog master post for all things Black Friday through Cyber Monday sales. I will share some things on my Insta stories with swipe ups, some things on my ‘Shop My Insta’ page and my LIKEtoKNOWit profile but absolutely EVERYTHING will be linked here. I will continue to update this post from the pre Black Friday sales, to the Black Friday and best of the weekend sales and all the way through Cyber Monday.
I’m so excited to reveal a little corner of our master bedroom with y’all today. Our master has been a lonnnggg work in progress. For whatever reason it’s just been one of those rooms that I put at the bottom of my priority list which in retrospect makes zero sense. being that it’s the room you start and your day in, therefore making it one of the most important room’s in your home. I will eventually share the other two walls with y’all once complete but for now this will have to do ;).
As you may have seen on my Instagram, I went to The Elm’s Hotel and Spa over the weekend with my mom and bestie. We spent the day getting pampered with an hour massage, a facial, mani/pedi, and spent time in their signature grotto. The grotto is what The Elm’s is known for and it did not disappoint. Keep your scroll to read more on the three products I could not leave that place without!
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.

Happy March friends, I’m taking a big sigh of relief that we made it through winter and the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. It was a beautiful sunny weekend here in Kansas City with temps in the high 60’s giving me the promise of spring which I am so ready for. Anyways, I wanted to share a round-up of beauty products that have been on my wishlist for a couple of months now and that I finally went out and picked up over the past week or so. I obviously haven’t tried these products out but for only 3-4 days now so I will be sure to do a full review with all my thoughts here in 4-6 weeks after i’ve had time to use them long term. These are products i’ve had my eye on after seeing other bloggers or beauty vloggers talk about them and having success. Along with that I also love love love to read product reviews and do my own research before purchasing any product so some of these come from my own findings and experts at beauty stores as well.
Happy #maskmonday! So lately I’ve been obsessed with face mask’s and by lately I mean since last May when I turned 25. I’m very fortunate to not have any major skin issues like severe acne, uneven texture or skin tone, or major sun damage. Though I will say I’ve most definitely noticed the larger appearance of my pores in the last year. Large pores can come from genetics, oily skin, or if you don’t have oily skin larger pores can come about from oil and dirt getting clogged in your skin causing the pores to swell and look larger than they normally would. If you follow the Elle Mae Bloom Facebook page (you totes should if you don’t) you’ll remember I posted about how excited I was that this particular brand was launching at Target very soon. Well, its hereeeee!
Happy Friyay Friends! Not a lot on my agenda for the weekend, going out to dinner with friends tomorrow, gathering up some blog content and taking photos for next weeks post’s, and getting prepped for a healthy week ahead – pretty boring! ha. I hope y’all have a much more exciting weekend plan then me! I’m excited to share with y’all this weeks round up of Friyay Favorites and I can’t wait to hear which feature is your fav?!
