I know, I know- I go through products like crazy but I think this is one of the best ways to let viewers truly know how I feel about a product because I have not only tried it or used it a few times, i've completly finished it =) Enjoy xo
Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream- I love this eye cream! I received this sample from Sephora using 100 points out of my reward bank a while back and it has lasted for months and months! I looked up the price and its $50! A little much in my opinion, although a little does go a really long way.
Olay Body Wash- Very moisturizing body wash! If you prefer lots of bubbles and foam in your body wash I wouldn't recommend this for you but if you like super creamy and moisturizing then this is your match. It smells really yummy too!! There is no specific personal name on this product so I guess the way you could remember it would be by the Pink Ribbon bottle.
Credentials Vitamin C Serum- This serum is awesome and made my face feel extremely moisturized. This serum leaves my face with a nice glow. This product sells for $47 on dermstore.com which is a little overpriced in my opinion but it is a great serum.
Epsom Salt- This is Target brand although any brand will work. You can find Epsom salt at just about every drugstore. I use Epsom Salt so often and go through these bags like crazy. I will pour the suggested amount in a bath after a workout to insure that I won't be too sore the following day. It's very relaxing as you can feel the little salts in your hot or cold bath, whichever you are taking =) It comes in all different types of packaging but Target's in particular is my favorite because it has a seal at the top to insure freshness. Totally recommend Epsom Salt and its super inexpensive!
Garnier Refreshing Remover- I like this wipes but I don't love them. They smell really good which is a plus but I would literally have to use 5 to get my face completely bare of a full face of makeup. They aren't very damp either. I have to wash my face with my daily face wash to ensure all of the makeup is off but I guess this is a start to get the initial makeup off? I definitely prefer Simple wipes over these ones. Probably won't be repurchasing these.
Phytomer Peeling Vegetal- This is a really great gentle facial peel. If you have super sensitive skin and are looking for a peel/exfoliant I definitely recommend this. This product sells for $36 on dermstore.com and a little goes a long way. I will repurchase this product.
Very Sexy by Victorias Secret Lip Gloss in Passion- The color and pigmentation of this gloss is amazing! The only huge complaint I have about this product is the brush applicator. The hair fall out every single time I would apply it. It was really gross as it would stick to the gloss on my lips! Other than that I really liked the lip gloss itself.

I am SO excited about this find! I grew and harvested my own homegrown wheatgrass!! The quality and quantity was/is amazing!! It grows super fast and last for up to 3 weeks after harvesting it! Most importantly, it's organic! I have no complaints about this purchase at all! If you follow step by step directions you will get your flawless homegrown organic wheatgrass :). It was super fun to do too!! I will definitely continue buying this!
Wheatgrass is SOOO good for you! It increases red blood cell count, lowers blood pressure, stimulates the thyroid gland, restores alkalinity to blood, liver and blood protector, powerful detoxifier, fights tumors and neutralizes toxins, contains beneficial enzymes and MUCH MUCH more!!!!
As you can see in the pictures above, I used a cut cardboard box as my base. I also chose to grow my wheatgrass in indirect sunlight indoors. I left my directions leaning up behind my wheatgrass throughout the growing process because there is so much you have to do to grow it properly, as I found doing that helped me to constantly check the list. I cut my wheatgrass a little sooner than recommended in the directions to insure freshness.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment below and I will answer them the best that I can ;)
I purchased my kit on www.wheatgrasskits.com

First off, I am IN LOVE with NARS packaging. Well, at the beginning of it's life. It is pretty hard to keep clean after a while but it still has amazing quality and each of these products come with their own personal mirror which is very convenient.
Pictured above is Deep Throat Blush, Orgasm Blush (backup), Albatross Highlighter, and Laguna Bronzer (backup).
The only real difference i've noticed in these two blushes is that orgasm has more of a shimmer. As most of the world, Orgasm is my go-to blush. Deep Throat is very similar so I figured I would grab that to try also :).
Like I mentioned in a previous post, I have a slight obsession with highlighter lately being why I just HAD to have Albatross. I love it.
As for the Laguna Bronzer, I received a sample size in a 500 pt reward box from Sephora and I have finally hit pan (lasted forever). I use that little sample size all of the time so it was a given that I was going to purchase the full size. Although, I will say, this bronzer is HUGE! Not going to be very convenient for traveling so I will probably have to pack a different bronzer to travel with.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchases.

Noni Juice- I drink this organic juice every morning on an empty stomach to get the full amount of nutritional value. Noni Juice provides the body with vitamin C, A, Niacin and iron. It is also great for the skin while preventing the growth of tumors and cancerous tissue. I already have a backup of this juice for when I ran out ;).
Sephora Instant Eye Makeup Remover- I have been using and repurchasing this eye makeup remover for a whole because it gets the job done and is super cheap. Sometimes it takes a little longer than I would like to get my eye makeup off but eventually I'm makeup free! I will probably repurchase.
Fairydrops Mascara- I really liked this mascara when I first purchased it but I found the more and more I used it the quality became much worse. I may or may not repurchase this mascara because I really did love it for its beginning life!
Champneys Mediterranean Bliss Body Glow- I LOVE the smell of this stuff! It is a very moisturizing exfoliator. I got this is a Champneys gift box from Target to check out the company's products. They have some really great things at very inexpensive prices!
Warming Massage Gel Oil- I really like this massage gel! I use this to give my fiancé massages after he's done training. It has a rubbery/gel feel to it. It's truly like no other massage oil/gel/lotion I have ever used. I love the rubbery texture as it is really great when you need to get deep knots out without being too slippery! I will repurchase this product.
TooFaced Lip Insurance- You can find my review on this product here.
Jojoba Oil- You can find my review on this oil here.
