Weekend Rewind. What's in my Bag?


Hey Hey! So, I promised you Friday that I was going to do better about blogging.
I had to push myself to do this Weekend Rewind post so feel very special that
I had you in mind! : )

You will notice shortly a theme to this post... or maybe not. For those of you that
are like me and not very observant I will tell you... every picture and product has Orange
in it! I actually bought one other thing, but it wasn't orange so I decided to not
mess up my consistency I have going in this post! I will do another post soon
on the eyshadow duo, Loreal Hip in the shade 510 electrified.

One thing I am going to try to get better at in blogging is reviewing more products that
I mention/use. I feel like I blog about things I buy, but I want you to get reviews as
well so you can know what I like/don't like about certain things I may mention.

So, with that said... here is what was in my bag this weekend. I did a little
copy-catting this weekend and bought items that were mentioned in a recent
youtube video by Kandee Johnson. She did a video on her nighttime cleansing routine
and after watching decided I wanted to give Burt's Bee products a chance!



Burt's Bees Orange Essence Facial Cleanser.

Kandee actually didn't mention this face wash, but when I was buying the scrub below
I decided that the cleanser and scrub would work really well together and decided
to get both. This cleanser is an award winning product that claims to "gently
remove all traces of dirt, oil, makeup, and pollutants while moisturizing and
conditioning the skin."

Retails for $8.99

As most of you probably know Burt's Bees products are 100% natural ingredients.
You can purchase at Whole Foods, Drugstore, or Wal-Mart.


Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub

This is the product Kandee Johnson claims to use as her primary means of removing
her makeup. She says in her video that it's not too harsh to use every day to cleanse
as well as exfoliate. Scrub claims to "leave your skin fresh and dewy as it exfoliates
dead skin cells."

It retails for $8.99

Alba un-petroleum Jelly

This was another product Kandee talked about in her video. She uses this jelly
under her eyes, forehead, and smile lines for added moisturizing. It has a vaseline
texture feel to it, but she said that it won't clog your pores or leave you with break-outs
b/c of the ingredients used. It has seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and Vitamin E
among a few other things.

I plan to use this mostly under my eyes, forehead (where I have expression lines) and
maybe a little around smile lines. I doubt I will use all over my face or too much in the
T-zone since I tend to break out in that area.



Ahhh yes, Vitamin C gummies how I have longed for your goodness!! So, the
last few rounds of Vitamin C I have taken have either been the chewable tablets or
Flinestone chewables, which are like eating candy!! I haven't been taking any C
for a while now and several people around me have been sick and with Holidays coming
up I want to do some preventative action!!

I am SO excited about the gummies though. I would take the multi-vitamin in a gummie
too if they weren't so darn expensive!! It's like $13... crazy!

I got these at Wal-Mart for $4.95

And good ole One A Day. I have been slacking on my vitamins lately so
back to the daily grind!

Yay for staying healthy during this crazy, but joyful time of the year!

Have a lovely day!

Friday Faves


Well HELLOOOO there beauties!

After a near month break of blogging, I'm back! Where have you been you say?
Why did you stop blogging? hmmm. I'm not really sure. Laziness, planning trips
to NYC and Mexico, and best of all I got a baby puppy dog last week!! She is a light
apricot maltipoo named Millie and she has consumed my world. I will do a post on her
soon so you can meet this precious little angel!

So, I'm going to try my best to keep up with blogging and doing more reviews, but with
the Holidays quickly approaching I'm not making any promises! : ) Things get cray cray
around this time of the year.

So, I do have a Friday Product Fave that I wanted to blog about. I bought the Revlon
Photo Ready concealer about a month ago and have been using every day under my eyes and
on any blemishes I have!


Guys, I have to say I am so into this concealer. I have quit using my higher end
stuff and grab for this over the expensive stuff now! It is a stick which would lead you
to believe it would be a more dry consistency. Negative. It is the most creamy, smooth,
blendable concealer.

My face recently decided to turn into a pizza right before my trip to NYC and this
stuff covered my blemishes like nobody's business! I even showed my girlfriends on the
trip how well it hide my pepperoni face. They were all impressed and wanted to use it!

It's a bit more expensive than maybe your average drug store product, but much better
than a department store. Retails for $9.99.

I purchased the 003 light/medium shade and it works perfect for me for anyone that
is interested in knowing.

Ok, so this was a quickie. : ) Hope you enjoyed. I will do better, I promise!

Have a Fabulous weekend!
