Review: Ponds Evening Soothe Makeup Removing Towelettes

This review is going to be for the Pond's Evening Soothe Makeup Removing Towelettes. These towelettes are described as having chamomile and white tea. I was excited to try these wipes out, because I love the original Pond's makeup removing wipes. 

Personally these wipes didn't give me a "soothing" feeling. It just felt like I was using a normal makeup removing wipe. The smell was nothing too special, and actually made it kind of hard to use the wipes.
They, like the regular Pond's wipes. removed all my makeup. Nothing special about these. I won't be purchasing these wipes. I will stick to the regular Pond's towelettes.

Review: John Frieda Full Repair

This is going to be a post about one of the shampoo samples that came with the Target beauty bag. There will be no photos for this blog. The 3 samples that were included in the bag were Tresemme Naturals, Garnier Pure Clean, and john Frieda Full Repair.

If you are subscribed to me on YouTube then you probably saw the video where I said I was trying to break away from drugstore shampoos. That is part of the reason I was so disappointed with this freebie bag. Anyway I told myself I was done with those shampoos, but I had free samples. Only one of them had any appeal to me, and that was the John Frieda Full Repair. I have watched a few videos where girls talk about, and love this product. I was not one of the ones that loved it....I actually hated it. It left a weird feeling on my hair and caused major breakage. My hair has always been...picky? about what shampoo is used. I can't use drugstore shampoos anymore. I currently am using Joico and after ones use of that I noticed my hair was stronger. After I used the john Frieda it once again started breaking, and just wasn't good.

II threw out the other 2 samples because they exploded. I'm impatient and wanted to smell them right away so I opened them all just to smell them. I put them on my vanity, and then one day threw my wallet down on them....explosion.

So those are my thoughts...or maybe this was more or a rant? I don't know. Whatever you want to call it...the point is I didn't like this product. I really wanted to, because it wold be great to be able to buy a shampoo that doesn't cost so much. That didn't happen though. So oh well!!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope you all had a great weekend.

Review: Loreal Youth Code

The next sample from the Target beauty bag I am going to be talking about is Loreal Youth Code. I was excited to try this product. For awhile now I've been thinking about getting into some anti-aging products. Even though I am only 27. It's never too early to start to try to fight off the aging process.

I only got one use out of this sample, but I loved it right away. It felt really nice going on my skin and didn't just sit there it actually soaked in pretty quickly. I noticed my face felt pretty smooth after applying it, and even the next morning. I was sad I wasn't able to get more uses out of this sample, because I really liked it. This is a product I would have no problem spending my money on. I do plan on purchasing this.

Review: Burt's Bees Day Lotion

Earlier this week I finally received my Target beauty bag. I was excited to try some new products that I wouldn't normally pick up while at a store. Now I know that with as small of an amount as you get as a sample I can't do a complete full review, but I can tell you what my first reaction was to it. So first up...Burt's Bees Day Lotion.

I was very excited to try this lotion. I have never tried any Burt's Bees products other than the lip balm, which i love! This was the first sample that I opened up and gave a try. At first when I opened it I liked the smell, but then as I was rubbing it on my skin I didn't like it anymore. The smell is very odd and hard to describe. not only was the smell not so great, but it made my skin feel sticky.
It's very disappointing that one of the samples I was most excited about was a fail, and i will not be purchasing this.
I really wanted to like this lotion, but i just couldn't do it. I ended up washing it off after having it on for 5 min, because the smell was too much for me to take.
Hopefully if you've tried this lotion you had better luck than I did with it.

Target Beauty Bag

So today I finally received my Target beauty bag. I filmed a video pretty much right away, because I wanted to open it on camera. When I receive anything I can't wait to open it. So here's the video of my opening it, and I hope you all received yours too!

Haul: Kmart, Target, Bath & Body Works

 I have a haul for you today! I am so excited about everything I am going to share with you today. I purchased these things late last week so I have had the chance to use everything.  Ready? Here we go!

The first place I went was Kmart. I only bought one thing, but it's something I wanted so badly! I found it a week earlier, and could not stop thinking about it. So I finally went back to buy it.
 Maybelline's Must Have Mauve lipstick.
I love this color so much! This is kind of different for me.
I never would have thought I would ever buy a purple lipstick,
but what's so great about this one is that there's a pink tone to it.
I honestly can not get enough of this color.
It came out with the fall collection.
So it is limited edition, and I am thinking about going back
to buy another one.
Next I went to Target. 
Where I bought yet another lipstick.
 Soft Nude from Revlon. 
I have wanted this lipstick for so long.
I don't know why it took me so long to buy,
but I'm glad I finally did.

 Next in the dollar section I found this pump bottle.
They had a few different colors, but of course I chose pink.
I put baby shampoo inside the bottle to hopefully
make cleaning my makeup brushes easier, and faster.
It worked! I cleaned my brushes the other night,
and this made it go so much faster.
I'm thinking about going back for a couple more.

I also made a stop at Wal-Mart where I picked up a nail polish.
 I chose Rags To Riches from Rimmel.
This is a gorgeous green shade with a little hint of gold.
This is the kind of color I have been wanting for awhile now.
I can't wait put it on my nails.

Last but certainly not least...Bath & Body Works!
 First up...the next scent from B&BW.
Be Enchanted. This the $1 dollar preview.
This scent is so good!
It reminds me of few different B&BW scents.
I can smell a little Charmed Life, 
Secret Wonderland, and a tiny hint of Dark Kiss.
I have heard people say they can smell Peach Citrus in it as well.
I don't get that at all.
I think this is a great scent, and look at that packaging.
They are on a roll with great scents, and gorgeous packaging.

 I also picked up the Charmed Life body spray.
I actually got this for free with the spend $10 get a free item coupon.
I've mentioned this scent before, and of course I love it.

 Next a picked up a candle. They have a few of their fall items on clearance.
I immediately asked if they had any thing in the Leaves
scent marked down, and the girl told me they had 2 bulb wallflower refills
and that those went VERY fast. So I continued to look around.
I came across the S'mores candle...OH MY GOD!
This candle is absolutely AMAZING!
I couldn't resist I had to have it, and it was marked
down to under $10 so why not?!
 Look at that picture! 
How delicious does that gooey mess look?!
The description couldn't be more perfect. 
I totally smell everything they mention, and to have my home 
smell like S'mores is simply amazing.

So that's it. That's all that I got.
I hope you all enjoyed this haul.
and I hope you had an awesome weekend,
and have an even more awesome week!


It's October and fall is least that's what the calender says. It has been so warm here lately. Temperatures in the 70's and even the 80's. It's crazy! Since it's been so nice I decided to go out and try to get some pictures of the changing leaves. There weren't too many trees that had changed yet, but I thought I should get there since it's also been very windy lately. I wanted to make sure I got a couple pictures before the wind blew all the leaves off. So I wanted to share some of the pictures that I got. I hope you enjoy!

My Latest Addiction...

A few months ago I did a post talking about what I was currently obsessed with. Well I have a new obsession that I just can't get enough of.

I don't know exactly what it is, but lately I've been grabbing more for lipstick rather than my usual lip gloss.
I've been searching just about every beauty site I can think of for lipstick, and currently have a list of about 
20 of them that I want/NEED. My list has gotten so long that I don't even know which ones to  purchase first.
Every time I have gone anywhere lately I run to the makeup section...that's really nothing new, but while there instead of looking at eyeshadow, or mascara I am drawn to lipstick. I just stand there trying to discreetly peel off the plastic so I can swatch it. Shh don't tell anyone. I have gone lipstick crazy! 
I have a feeling the next time I go shopping with money in my pocket it's going to be a long one, as I will probably re-swatch colors I've already swatched. 
I can't wait til I am able to purchase so that I can start crossing names off of my list, and I can't wait to share with you the colors I've chosen. 

Random - Cat Cuteness

It's been a lazy Saturday at our house. We've been in all day just trying to catch up some of our shows we had DVR'd. While doing that I took some picture of our cats, and I've really been wanting to blog so I thought I would share them with you.

 Chewy (the white one) & T laying in the window together.
All I can think of when I see this picture
Is the song from the 80's commercial for My Buddy.
Which is funny because we have a feeling most 
of the time they don't like eachother.

 Chewy...pretty much sums up the kind of day it's been in our house.

 Love this picture! 
Adam actually took  this one.

 Another one Adam took.
I'm kind of jealous I didn't take them,
because I love both so much.

 T. And yes that really is his name.
That right there is my baby. 
While they're all my babies, and I love them dearly
T holds an extra special place in my heart.

 T again. Laying on his apron.
Last summer I found a kid size Lowe's Apron .
I bought it for 25 cents and thought it would be funny
to put it on the kids I watch.
That didn't work out.
T instantly claimed it as his...which he does with 
just everything new he sees us bring in the house.

And finally my baby showing his momma some love. 

Now as I'm writing this T is on the couch next to me sleeping,
and Adam is on our other couch sleeping as well.
I guess this means it's nap time at our house.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog, and I hope you all have a great weekend!
