Rishi Organic Tea

Oh. My. Yum! This is amazing, organic tea, that you can't go wrong with! As I mentioned in a past post, I have completely quit drinking coffee and switched over to tea. 
Tea not only has amazing benefits but it also gives me the same boost of energy coffee does! Actually, BETTER! It's more of a natural boost! You have to try it!

This is a sample pack from Rishi Taste True Tea that includes 10 different types of tea for $6.99.

To make all of my tea even tastier & healthier I add a spoonful of coconut oil to my cup :) SO good for you! It's also like an instant lip moisturizer!!

Remember- what you put in your body plays a huge role in what the outside will look like! ;)

Drink up, my loves!

Forever21 $5.80 Sunglasses

Check out these FABULOUS sunglasses I got from Forever21 all priced at $5.80!!! Unreal right? I go through sunglasses like crazy so it's rare for me to purchase any high end ones. I also like to have a pair handy in my purse, car, pool/beach bag and suitcase just to make sure I'm never without, especially for these sunny seasons! I have light green-yellow eyes making my eyes super sensitive to light. I will say that these sunglasses do not have the quality of high end ones but of course, that's expected when you're only spending $5. They do scratch very easily so I highly recommend leaving them out of anywhere they can get damaged or putting them in a sunglass case.

Here is a link to each of them:

Personal Goal

Because it gets ridiculously hot in California, it is not fun having to wear any type of makeup during the day or at night for that matter. With that said, I've made it a personal goal of my own to get my face as close to looking like I'm wearing foundation without wearing anything as possible :) Of course, thats a normal everyday goal for all of us but I'm really going to go out of my way to make this happen. To start, I will be using all organic toners, serums and oils to make this goal reality! I've also quit coffee completely (gasps!) -I know- and switched to tea. 

Everyone wants flawless skin but we all know it doesn't come that easy! 

I will be keeping you all updated on my finds and let you know what works and doesn't work for me!

Sephora Haul - 15% off

For those who don't know, Sephora has their 15% off sale going on which is set to end April 11th. So of course, I had to grab a few things I've been eying ;). For VIBs the promo code is vibticket and for rouge members the promo code is rougeticket. If you are not a member of Sephora and love your high end beauty products I highly recommend joining as they have an awesome points program! 

 As you can see I placed a few different orders!! HAHA! It's SO hard not to when they have these deals going on!!

***Whenever I purchase items on I ALWAYS check out the reviews for each product. You can find out a lot of great information on there from tons of people with different skin types whom have tried out the products! If the product doesn't have at least 4 1/2 *stars* I usually will not get it.

I will enable a link to each product listed so that you can check it out on Sephora if you are interested :)

I ordered:

Make Up For Ever HD Invisablie Cover Foundation in #125 Sand which is lighter than my normal color (#128) and a purchase mistake but I figured it would be good to have around on my pale days! ($42)

Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme in Medium 003 because i've heard tons of reviews stating that this is the best BB creme ever! We shall see! I did do a swatch on my hand when I first opened it and it is way too dark for me right now but I plan on getting pretty bronzed as I tan VERY easily in the summer, even with sunscreen which is a MUST for me! This BB creme has a pink undertone. I plan on wearing this instead of foundation now that it is getting crazy hot out (93* today in Cali)! ($44)

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette because everyone raves about this stuff! I am in love with my Dior one, as I mentioned in my last empties but I figured I would try this one to see if its better! Ya never know if you don't try! :) ($21)

Sephora 4-Step Nail Buffer I got to hopefully replace my minis and provide a longer lifetime! I have tons of the little guys of this and they seriously get destroyed after a few uses!! Especially the nail filer side which I need constantly! Fingers crossed!! ($5)

Tweezerman Pink Perfection Slant Tweezer for a backup! I have one of these in my makeup bag but I figured I would purchase one that can stay in my bathroom because we all know tweezers come in handy for all kinds of different things! & my current one is the absolute best tweezer i've ever used! ($22)

St. Tropez Tanning Essentials Self Tanning Kit to try out these little guys as i've only ever used their bronzing muse which is my ALL TIME FAVORITE self tanning product EVER! This kit also comes with an application mitt which I have never used so I'm excited to try that out. Side Note: I never use protection on my hands when using this muse I always just wash them immediately after which works for me, but I figured i'd see if I like this option better! ($25)

Beauty Blender Pro because I own the pink beauty blender and wanted to try this one out for comparison! Also, beauty blenders are AMAZING and you can never have enough! If you haven't tried applying your foundation and/or concealer with a beauty blender I HIGHLY recommend giving them a try! By far better than any brush in my opinion! ($28.95)

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional because every single person on the planet has tried this stuff besides myself!! (I kid) I am super excited to try it myself and let you all know what I think! ($31)

I also picked out a few items with points I had saved up:
Algenist Firming and Lifting Cream- have used before and enjoyed.
Buxom Full on Lip Polish- have heard amazing things about these lip glosses.

And last but not least I picked out some samples:
Glamglow Brightmud Eye Treatment (3)
Tom Ford Noir Perfume 
Kat Von D Unlock-It Makeup Remover Wipes
Jose Maran Pure Argan Milk
GOLD Jay Z Perfume

If you've tried any of these products I would love to hear what you though of them! 

Hope you've had or are having an amazing day depending on where you are in the world! Xo

Note: I haven't done an empties post in 8 monthsbrace yourselves for the empties overload ;)

Acure Moroccan Argan Stem Cell ConditionerHere is a full post on this product

Acure 100 % Organic Argan Oil
Here is a full post on this product

Acure Sensitive Facial Cleanser
Here is a full post on this product

Burt's Bees Beewax Lip Balm- I've always enjoyed this balm although it's not a favorite. Usually the only time I purchase this is if I am in need of Chapstick and my favorites are unavailable. Would only purchase again if in same situation.

Green Beaver Frosty Mint- Here is a full post on this product

It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product- One of my absolute favorite hair products ever! This is my little travel size that I can't travel without! I use this product every single time I get out of the shower! I find it works best to spray on my hair as soon as I get out and then I throw my hair up in a towel and let it soak in for about 5 minutes while I put on my moisturizer and lotion. This is a must have for me! I will purchase forever until I find something better!

Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials in Sand- I seriously don't even know if they still make this product! I've had it for SO long. I don't use this type of product in my routine anymore so I doubt I will be repurchasing. I use an eye primer on my lids and concealer under my eyes.

Josie Maran Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain
Here is a full post on this product

Dior Show Brow Styler in Universal Brown- Another favorite of mine! This is the best eyebrow product I have yet to use. It is mechanical and glides on perfectly! It also has an attached spoolie which is a plus! It is in my everyday makeup routine and will remain there until I find better :).

Givenchy Sample Mascara in #1 Black Satin- I believe I received this little guy with points at Sephora and I really did enjoy it! I don't plan on buying the full size only because I have SO many sample mascaras I need to use up along with full sizes that I've purchased and haven't even gotten to yet! But like I said, it is a really good one to try!

Covergirl LipPerfection in #210- This is one of my all time favorite drugstore beauty products! I have gotten so many compliments while wearing this color and I ADORE the packaging! So easy and fun to use while lasting a long time! I would definitely repurchase and I really want to try out other colors!

Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream Sample- I really enjoyed this sample! It is very comparable to the Bobbi Brown Eye Cream sample I reviewed in one of my previous empties post. Good eye creams are usually very pricey and hard for me to justify as I feel like a good moisturizer and serum should be able to fill the eye cream's roll as well as their purposes. Maybe I haven't found the right one?

Dessert Essence Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner
I LOOOVE everything about this shampoo and conditioner! One of my all-time favorites! I love the smell, the feeling and the price! Will deff repurchase! Highly recommend! 

Yes to Cucumbers Facial Wipes Soothing Hypoallergenic- These were nice to have in my purse because they come in this cute little travel size but not my favorite face wipe. I did enjoy the refreshing scent of these a lot! May repurchase for connivence.

Victorias Secret Very Sexy Sheer Mist- I LOVE the smell of this mist although the scent's lasting time is awful! You literally loose all of the scent within 15 minutes. I personally feel like that's the case with the majority on VS's sprays. May repurchase for the scent.

EOS- I love the packaging of the EOS lip balms! They are just too cute! BUT, the product itself is not my absolute favorite. I feel like the lasting time of this balm is not near as long as many other balms I've used. Would still repurchase for the cutenes of this product! So fun to apply :)

Zim's contacted me by email asking if I would like to sample a couple of their products so I did a little research on their company and found that they have great ingredients so I happily accepted their offer to share with you all :)

First, they sent me this Advanced Organic Crack Creme with Hydrocortisone. This stuff is awesome for super dry skin and comes in great use during the dry cool winter season. It's also used for cracked skin, rashes, inflammation, redness, insect bites, eczema, and psoriasis. Talk about a multi-use cream, eh?! Super handy to have in the medicine cabinet!! This creme was invented by a pharmacist and comes in a 3oz bottles selling for $9.99. Here is a direct link to their site where you can purchase this product. 

Secondly, they sent me their best selling Max-Freeze Continuous Spray which was a HUGE hit for my professional athlete fiancĂ©, which is why I do not have a personal picture of it, HAHA! I showed it to him and never saw it again! This product is perfect for sore muscles and joints. I absolutely LOVE that they make an ORGANIC freeze like this! I can't stress enough how important it is to use organic products especially when using something that your skin is going to soak up and go into your blood stream! Love. LoVe. LOVE. This comes in a 4oz spray bottle for $9.99. Here is a direct link to their site where you can purchase this product.

These products are available on,,, and multiple national drug store chains including: Harris Teeter, HD Smith, Marc's, Medi-Systems, and Value Drug.
