Random Bits + Find Me On Facebook!

Hello everybody!

I just wanted to share some things that I've been working on lately. 

Ever since I took that painting class on Mother's Day, I've really been in the mood to paint. I'm no Picasso or Iris Scott or anything, but I do enjoy being creative. So during my lunch break at work, I picked up a couple of supplies so I can start painting! Maybe I'll even post some pictures of my creations for you all to see! :}



Also, I just recently (yesterday) made a "like" page for my blog on Facebook so it would mean a lot to me if you guys went ahead and liked my page!



One more thing before I close off this post, check out this kick ass Kitana costume that I just received in the mail today :}

Current Favorites

Hey everyone! I just wanted to share some products that I've been loving recently and maybe you'll love them, too!



I got this candle last Christmas and I'm so happy that I got it because it smells so good. The scent I got it in is "Cranberry Woods" and when you light it, it makes the whole room smell absolutely delicious.



I came upon this Tea Tree Facial Wash on Amazon and I'm happy that I got it. I use it after my Proactiv face wash and it makes my skin feel super soft and clean.
You can find this face wash here.



I got this product in one of my Birchbox boxes. It's a very small sample but you don't need a lot of product when you use it so it lasts quite a while. All you do it put a couple drops of this oil in the palm of your hand and apply to your damp hair. It made my hair feel so soft and healthy.
You can find this hair oil here.



This continuous spray moisturizer is so convenient. I love it since I'm kind of lazy I can just spray this lotion all over my body and go on with my day. I got it in Nourishing Cocoa Butter at CVS.



You can read all about my love for this Hempz Hydrating Bath and Body Oil here.



Güd by Burt's Bees is probably my favorite shampoo and conditioner that I've found in a long time. The one pictured on the left is in the scent Red Ruby Groovy and it smells like delicious grapefruit. The one pictured on the left is in the scent Mango Moonbreeze. Both of these shampoos and conditioners left my hair super soft and clean. There's 4 more scents that I cannot wait to try.
You can buy Güd at Target or on their website.



I'm usually not a huge fan of lipstick mostly because I like to eat and I don't want the lipstick to wear off throughout the day but I got this Lime Crime lipstick in Pink Velvet and I love it so much. It's a velvetine so it stays put all day even when I eat or drink. Pink Velvet smells so good and it's a very pretty pink color.
You can find Lime Crime here.



Last but not least are my favorite pairs of boot that I own, Tecnica Moon Boots! I have mine in a light pink color. They keep my feet so warm during the cold winter weather and protect from the snow. They're very thick but easy to walk in. I wear them all year long because that's how much I love them. I plan on getting them in multiple colors.

May 2014 Birchbox Unboxing

Birchbox killed it this month with really awesome products!


SmartyPants All-In-One Gummy Vitamins for Adults
"These delicious gummies provide essential nutrients without artificial flavors."
These gummies were actually really good even though I got some not-so-good flavors (I don't like anything orange flavored and that's what I got.) It was a 2 pack so I obviously didn't notice any awesome feelings but I would totally buy these vitamins for myself!


CoTZ Face Natural Skin Tone SPF40
"Oil-free, mineral sunscreen that blends in sheer for a matte finish."
Like I said in my Ipsy Unboxing, I'm a big fan of sunscreen since my skin is so sensitive and I get burned easily while outdoors. Even though it is a brown color, it blends into skin very well. It makes my skin really soft and I didn't find it greasy.


LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil
"Perfect for spring, this high-gloss, semi-sheer lip color glides on buttery-smooth."
I was really sick of getting these lip crayons in my bags, but this is such a pretty purple that I wasn't even mad. It goes on so nicely and if you build the color up, it reminds me of like a Barbie purple kind of color. Very bright and really pretty. Using when I use lipsticks or these kinds of lip crayons, my lips get really gunky with the product, but I was happy to find out that it wasn't the case with this stuff! Like it says, it is perfect for spring.


Number 4 High Performance Hair Care
"This sulfate-free, botanical-rich cleanser creates bouncy, bodacious hair."
I have really thin hair but a lot of it and I was pleased that this shampoo actually did what it said it would. My hair was full and voluminous, I'm so in love. It even lasted until the next day! It smells so wonderful and I also got a really nice surprise when Birchbox added the conditioner to my bag as well!


Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream
"A shea butter-packed shaving cream in a fresh scent."
The scent that I got was in Acai Grapefruit and it smelled so good! I felt like I didn't even need a lot of product on my legs and it left my legs so smooth and soft. I'm really impressed with this shaving cream. For someone who isn't a huge fan of shaving creams, I will definitely be purchasing this product in the very near future! I'm so in love with it.


I was really impressed with Birchbox's customer service. They were running behind with sending the bags out this month and they sent out a nice e-mail and even gave me 100 free points!

May 2014 Ipsy Unboxing


Avène Thermal Spring Water
I'm not sure why we would need water in an Ipsy bag, but it says it's used for cleansing, after shaving, after makeup removal, and sunburns. "It's unique and constant composition gives it soothing and softening properties proven by scientific studies. Tested by Dermatologists, it provides soothing benefits for sensitive, hypersensitive and allergic skin. Spray a fine mist on skin, wait a few minute and pat dry."
Maybe I'll give it a try after showers and shaving and see how it works, but overall I'm not sure why it's even needed.


Hang Ten Classic Sport SPF50
"Protect and nourish your skin with our clear, lightweight, naturally scented sunscreen. Provides maximum water resistance and full body coverage against harmful UVA/UVB rays."
To me, this product doesn't smell like normal sunscreen, it smells really good. I'm excited to try it when it starts to get warm outside and for someone who burns easily, the SPF50 is a nice choice. It doesn't even feel greasy at all!


Pur~lisse Pur~moist Hydra Balance Moisturizer
"Achieve beautiful balance with the Pur-lisse pur~moist hydra balance moisturizer. Gently smooth over face day or night after cleansing and toning. Glides on like a gel and hydrates like a cream and never greasy. Hydates your skin to create a perfect canvas for makeup application. Dries down to a healthy glow."
This product smells really good and like it says, it isn't greasy. I'm excited to try it because my skin is really dry from using my Proactiv. I feel like this moisturizer would work really well before putting on any makeup.


Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo
"The Pacifica Mineral Eyeshadow Duo are coconut infused mineral eye shadows that are a perfect addition to any makeup collection. These shades can be found in the Pacifica Mystical and Charmed Palette. Smooth application with gorgeous color pay-off."
Pacifica has been on my list of companies to try so I'm really happy that I got something from them. They're 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free which is awesome. The color that I got is Duo 2: Moonbeam and Unicorn. I feel like the lighter color would be a good highlighter. The color payoff is nice but the purple color might need to be built up a little bit. Overall, I'm happy with it!


Olive Natural Beauty The Olive Lip Balm
"The Olive Lip Balm is packed with Olive Natural Beauty’s organic jojoba and extra virgin olive oil for light enduring moisture with no added synthetics or chemicals so your lips are always ready for that spontaneous kiss. We use animal cruelty-free beeswax that is cultivated at a higher altitude to produce the most pure and unprocessed wax, protecting your lips from the elements while allowing them to breathe and stay plump."
The scent that I got is called Refreshing Rosemary. It does leave my lips really smooth, but I don't really enjoy the smell of it. I think the packaging is broken too because the product is twisted up and when I try to make it go down it doesn't and I'm just afraid that the lip balm will break off.

Mother's Day!

Hi everyone!
I had a very exciting Mother's Day with my mom and my sister. I took some pictures of the things we did and I wanted to share them with you!


First, my sister Alison and I went to the Humane Society because we arrived too early for breakfast and we needed to kill some time. This ended up being a mistake because we wanted to take every animal home! 






These poor babies looked so sad, but luckily, a lot of them were on hold and waiting to go home!



When it was time, we all had breakfast at Caribou.



My beautiful mom and my sister!


After we finished breakfast, we went shopping a little bit until it was time to go to Cheers Pablo! This place was so cool. It was a painting class that sold wine and beer and little hand foods. At this class, we painted sunflowers and they all turned out so pretty!

After painting, we met up with some more of my family and had some dinner! Overall it was a very lovely day.


I hope everybody had a wonderful Mother's Day!
