PosT: Dollar tree and their amazing holiday collection this season...
Hello my beautiful moms,
While many people have been talking non stop about the new season of theWalking Dead, I have binge watching the election coverage, and You Tube Dollar Tree Holiday Hauls. I know these cannot be more different, or are they really? Although the appeal is clear to me why Dollar Tree haul videos are so popular, my kids keep saying "mommy, you are watching Dollar Tree videos again? In case you need reaffirmation onto why these type of videos are so poupular here are my two cents:
See the beautiful pictures here
Fabulous finds fridays: Bling pumpkin
When I watch decorating hauls videos, which by the way are so addicting, VERY FEW you tubers talk about Burlington Coat factory as a great resources and I have to tell you that it is one of my favorite stores to buy for the home. Their prices are very reasonable and they usally have really nice things. Lately I have been finding amazing sales, like today's item...ready to see it? It's pretty awesome!!
Big Lots: The hot spot for glam holiday decor
Hey my beautiful moms,
Makeup has taken the backseat for me in the last few months. My focus is now on home improvement and decor. I know, I know we have not celebrated Halloween yet, but most of the stores have rolled out most of their holiday decor. I find myself decorating browsing through three different holidays at the store I start early getting inspiration and I must tell you, if you love decorating for Christmas there are many stores with great and affordable stuff, without a doubt the one that stood out the most the past weekend was Big LOTS. Here's why...
Post: Need an ally to decorate your home on a budget?
Hello my beautiful moms,
My lazy makeup routine has transitioned into the Fall and lately you find me doing crafts, decorating around the house, watching the election coverage, Ellen and Steve Harvey of course. Sometimes when I watch videos with decor on a budget it makes bodth cringe and laugh. I just do not think most people grasp the concept of a budget! When I say that word I mean it and of course it can be challenging, but also very rewarding searching for pieces that will make an impact in your house without making it look cheap, makes sense? My philosopy in beauty is the same as my philosohy in decor: invest in key pieces and then yo can save with the rest of the decor. Ready to see the goodies I found?
iPSY: AFTER 3 MONTHS OF DISSAPPOINTMENT, WOULD OCTOBER BE THE REDEMPTION?
I have been MIA for a while around here. As much as I dislike the constant lecture quotes on Facebook newsfeed, please allow me to say this: Do you have health? then, enjoy life, don't sweat the small stuff, smile, hug, eat, love, and embrace life to the fullest. Unexpected things can come at any time hindering your ability to do the simplests things and that my moms takes a HUGE tall on your overall wellbeing. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let's get back to the makeup talk. I have been taking a break from beauty things and trust me it is showing!wish you can see me right now (hair mess CHECK, DRY SKIN CHECK). With the holiday season fast approaching, I am also going through a decorating phase, that can be just as obessing as makeup. SPEAKING OF makeup, my dissappointment with the last three Ipsy bags, had me thinking if perhaps is time to unsuscribe or would the October bag be the redemption? Let's take a look at the spoilers of what's to come...
Hello my beautiful moms,
After years applying my makeup with standards sponges, my fingers and drugstores wedges, I realized that I needed to invest in a good quality brush. Having the right brush makes a world's of difference in the texture and overall look of your makeup.Tools are just as important as the products you use. 7 years ago most makeup lovers had little options if they were trying to find an affordable and good quality brush, but luckily for us that has changed dramatically in recent years. Brands like ELF, Real Techniques, Up Target brand have introduced some good quality alternatives at least for our pockets. What I have also learned in the process is that some of the popular brushes do not work for sensitive skin. Here are some you should be careful with...
