Lush Roots Hair Treatment

hair care

Ah, I love the scent of this! It is so minty and mentholy. It is just the perfect scent. It did not give my hair volume like it claims. It left my scalp feeling amazing and my hair was less oily at the roots. This pot lasted me forever and was well worth the price that I paid for it. Unfortunately, this contains sulfates and I cannot repurchase it. It will strip my grey hair of its color. If you don’t color your hair, I highly recommend this.

With Love,

Billy Jealousy

Billy Jealousy Hydroplane Shave Cream

miscellaneous

This came in my dad’s men Birchbox and he doesn’t shave. I used this on my legs and I thought it was okay. I don’t use shave cream anymore. I just use my conditioner to shave my legs. It takes me forever to go through conditioner, because my hair is super fine and thin and not that long. This helps rotate through my conditioners faster. I feel like shave cream is not a necessity when conditioner can give me just as close of a shave.

Gliss Ultra Moisture Poo & Conditish

I love the scent of these products and how soft it left my hair. If it is cruelty free, I would purchase this set again or one for blondes/silvers. The shampoo suds up like a dream and the conditioner is really thin and watery. It is great for fine hair. I got about 6 uses out of these little sample bottles, maybe 8 for the conditioner. I recommend them for thin hair, but not if you have dry hair. You would need more moisture than what this gives.

You’re So Fine

Elizabeth Mott You’re So Fine Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Glitterati

beauty

This is a good liquid eye liner, do not get me wrong. It doesn’t skip, you can build up the intensity no problem. I have hooded eyes and can never manage liquid eyeliner to look good on me or keeping a cat eye straight on my own eyes. I can getting better at it and it only looks good if I keep the tail to a bare minimum. Just a baby flick. I tend to stick to my pencils and gels for going out in and my liquids for when I stay at home. After being open for more than a year, this is dried up. I want to get a glitter eyeliner in a clear base. That I can use with my eye shape and I can never have too much glitter.

Clean On Me

Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel

body

As the name states, this was very moisturizing and I loved the scent of this. It is very perfumed and floral, but I do not mind it. It wasn’t too much for me and didn’t give me a headache. It gave a good lather and I would buy it. I know this brand can be a little pricey, I mean it was in Sephora in the beginning. I would wait for a sale and get a big bottle to last a long time. I am no where nears buying another body wash yet, but this has made it on my short list.

A Fresh Start

I totally just accidentally deleted every picture off of my sd card. So, no more Sephora or Mashalls haul. And the rest of my collection posts are suspended until next year. I am so mad at myself right now. lol. Not going to lie, I cried a bit about it. I am so disappointed that I am not going to be sharing this stuff with you, but I am not about to take a million pictures trying to make up for the ones that I have lost. I will take this as a good thing and start my blog with fresh content again.

That means, currently my blog content is empty for lack of pictures. I will be posting my Dean updates and a slew of reviews. I still can kick myself for losing everything. sigh The first time in all of the years that I have blogging have I ever did that before. It was like 75 pictures.

I have been taking consignment bags of clothes every week and slowly weeding out the toys that Dean no longer plays with for donations. I price my own clothes and get 50% of the price when it sells. It is enough to get a little bit of money for me to buy my own clothes with at a thrift store.

Oh! And I will be sharing my college experiences with all of you with the process of applying to an online college, a good old college haul, and more content like how I study or balance school, etc. I want to wait until I am officially registered and have signed all the paperwork first, before commenting on the whole beginning experience. So, probably next week, I will be writing a blog post. If not, the week after for sure.

I have been blogging on Sundays and planning them out for the rest of the week for the most part. Some posts, I will write that day if I don’t get to write all of them on Sunday. I write on Sunday for 1 to 2 hours during Dean’s nap. I want to spend as much time with him as possible on my days off. I sometimes blog during his nap on a weekday, but I am usually watching an adult movie with my dad or another quite activity. I am sure when I start college, it will be doing college work.

I wanted to write a little update about why certain posts are no longer going up and what to expect on my blog right now. I have a heap of reviews piling up, so I am starting to see it as a good thing. I still have a whole heap of products to write reviews about, too. I have been cleaning/organizing lately. I am thinking about posting content like that on the blog as well. I want to buy an organizational tool once a week to try to organize this house. I am thinking about sharing before and afters and the step by step how I did it.

I’m thinking about having a beauty/lifestyle blog and making it more official with some organizational content, cooking/baking, and even some gardening. I think I am ready to evolve from just mostly beauty. I mean, I do book reviews regularly and movie ones sporadically. I think I would enjoy writing my content more with a better focus on what I actually do and care about. A big part is beauty, but another big part is organization. I want to show that on my blog more and have the motivation to buy stuff to organize our small space and keep it nice.

Primer Collection 2018

So, I am continuing this series until I have ran through everything that I have photographed in my collection as of January when I took all of these pictures. I have been trying not to overload my feed too much with these posts, but also I was so behind in the new year. I am at a more comfortable place with my blogging now, where I have room to diversify my content a bit. I am thinking about posting about getting back to going to college, college shopping mini haul, and how online college is. Let me know if any of you are interested in that. I will probably end up doing it anyways, because I think that would be great for others to know that you can ALWAYS go back and finish.

primers

I am super happy to only be seeing 5 primers, four of which are deluxe sizes. I am currently trying to use up the PTR and Benefit primers. I will move on to my full size next along with Cover FX when I want a more glowy look. Once Cover FX is done, I will pull in Smashbox for when I get tired of Studio Gear, which by the way, has little shimmer particles in it. I believe it is a little glowy as well too. It was been a long time, since I have worn it though. I cannot say for sure. I am not worried about my primer stash. I am confident that by the end of the year that I will be looking for a new primer and I already have a couple on my Loves List to try out when that time comes.

I am hoping that more of my collection will become pared down like this. I know my lip products will always be CRAZY, but I am hoping for my eye makeup drawer to be less stuffed by the end of the year. I know what I like now, so I am definitely a smarter consumer than when I first started out. I got so overwhelmed being able to buy anything I wanted, because I had a job that paid well for the first time. My first “real” job. Having a kid brings you down to earth fast on what you can truly afford.
