DIY Lavender Face Toner


Hey everyone,

Lately I’ve been obsessed with essential oils. I love using them to make skincare and household products. So, when I found a recipe for face toner, I just had to try it. It’s so easy to make and smells amazing.

What you need?

  • 2 ounce spray bottle
  • Witch hazel without alcohol
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Lavender essential oil

In the spray bottle add 1/4 a cup of witch hazel, 2 drops vitamin E oil and 5 drops lavender essential oil.

Don’t forget to put on a pretty label (I didn’t have a pretty label 😦 ..lol ) and shake it up before each use.

1 or 2 sprays in the morning and at night.

Makeup of The Day!! 2/16/18


Hey everyone,

Yesterday I was supposed to go on a date with my husband but we decided to go to his parents for dinner instead. I still wanted to do my makeup all pretty. So, I decided to use my Too Faced Bon Bon Palette. I haven’t shown this palette love in awhile.

I went for a more natural look but added a little bit of sparkle to my lids.

Here’s what I used-

I used Almond Truffle and Cashew Chew in the crease. Satin Sheets on the lid and then Mocha and Bordeaux on the outer corner. On the bottom lash line I used Almond Truffle and Bordeaux.

I used 1993 from my Urban Decay lip palette.

A very easy look using one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes.

What’s your favorite eyeshadow palette?

LipSense Review 💄


Hey everyone,

If you know me, then you know that lip products are my favorite makeup item. So when my friends started talking about LipSense, I just had to try it. I’m not a distributor but I do love the product.

What is LipSense- It is a long lasting lip color. It’s not a lipstick or a stain. It’s a completely different product that bonds with your lips on a molecular level.

What is in LipSense- LipSense is made from natural materials that are good for your skin. It’s made in the USA and contains no wax, lead, gluten, animal byproducts or GMO’s. It’s also vegan and cruelty free.

How long does it last- One application of LipSense can last 4-18 hours. One tube of LipSense can last up to 6 months if you were to use the same color everyday. One tube equals to 4 tubes of lipstick.

How do you apply LipSense-

I currently own 3 colors of LipSense. Starting from the top- Roseberry, Lexie Beary and Fly Girl. So far Roseberry is my favorite.

I suck at swatches and those are going to be on my arm all day..lol

When you first order LipSense you buy the starter kit. In the starter kit you receive the color of your choice, glossy lipgloss and oops remover. The starter kit costs $55. After you order the starter kit the lip color is $25 and lipglosses are $20.

If throughout the day your lips start to feel dry, just apply some of the lipgloss and the dry feeling will disappear.

I’ve really fallen in love with LipSense. I love that it’s long lasting, especially since I’m a busy mom and don’t have time to be worrying about my lipstick rubbing off on my daughter. I can literally kiss her all day and won’t see any of my LipSense on her face lol.

One thing I do need is more colors. They have over 70, so I shouldn’t have a hard time find more colors to love 💕< strong>My friend Becky is my LipSense “dealer”. She’s gorgeous, sweet and knows everything about LipSense and all the other amazing products from Sengence. Here is the link to her Facebook group https://m.facebook.com/groups/109195349654856< strong>Becky is always posting about new colors and products, plus she does some amazing giveaways.

What are your thoughts?< strong>Thanks your reading my post💕

Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette Look and Review!!


Hey everyone,

How’s everyone today? Here in Michigan it’s snowing like crazy. I’m sick of winter..lol

If you read my last post then you know that I just bought the New Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes. I’ve been playing with them a lot and I love them. I think Wet N Wild in general is an amazing company. They make wonderful products and keep them affordable.

So, I will start with the look I did using mostly Wet n Wild products.

I started out by priming my face with Wet n Wild Coverall face primer

Next I used the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation

Next I used the Megaglo Concealer stick and blush stick.

After that I used the Halo liquid highlighter on my cheekbones.

I set everything with the Wet n Wild Photofocus pressed powder.

My eyebrows were next. I used Makeup Revolution eyebrow palette.

I primed my eyelids with the Wet n Wild eye primer.

I used the new Wet n Wild Rośe All Day eyeshadow palette.

I used the dusty rose shade in my crease and the dark rose shade on my lids. Then I put the dark burnt orange shade on my lower lash line. I used the lightest shade as my brow bone highlight.

I sprayed my face with the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray

I used the Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara and then finished off the look with Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in the shade Lover

I really like the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Palettes. The formula is wonderful. They are very pigmented and blend wonderfully. I love the color selections, you don’t normally see those types of shades in drugstore eyeshadows. I definitely recommend trying these palettes out for yourself. They are only $4.99!!!!

Thanks for ready my post.

Small Drugstore Makeup Haul-1/26/18


Hey everyone,

I’m back!! I feel like I haven’t wrote in forever. Well, that’s going to change. 2018 is the year of Amanda!!!

To start off the year of Amanda, I decided to pick up some makeup while I was grocery shopping. I also had a coupon..lol

Let’s get started-

I wrote in my last post, how much I have these Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink. So of course I had to pick up another one. This is in the shade Ruler.. because I rule lol

I have been searching for these eyeshadow palettes from Wet n Wild since they came out. I found them at Kroger.. so weird lol

I have heard these are really good. I can’t wait to put these to the test myself. The colors are gorgeous and are perfect for me. The palettes I bought are, not a perfect peach and rośe in the air.

That’s it..lol. I told you it was a small haul.

Have you tried the Wet n Wild palettes? What are your thoughts?

Thank you for reading my post.

Makeup Haul!!


Hey everyone,

It’s been a hot minute since I bought any new makeup. I’ve been having withdrawals, especially seeing all the amazing new products that are now available. So here is my first small haul of the new year. I will be doing reviews on these products soon.

Wet n wild hello halo liquid highlighter- I was so excited when I finally found these at Rite Aide. I bought the 2 lightest shades in halographic & halo, goodbye.

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in lover. I’ve heard so many good things about this liquid lipstick.

Maybelline total temptation mascara in very black- I wonder how this will stack up against my favorite Lash Paradise Mascara. Maybe I will have to do a comparison.

That’s my small haul. I can’t wait to play with this new makeup and do some reviews.

Thanks for reading my post.

New Years Resolutions 2018!!!


Hey everyone,

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday. Our family had a wonderful time. My husband was off work and was able to spend a lot of time with Mattie and me. It was very nice.

So usually my New Years resolution is to lose weight, which I will be changing to living a healthy lifestyle. I have realized that I don’t do good with diets. I always feel like a failure if I don’t lose weight and I hate feeling that way about myself. So no more of that.

I will also be getting into essential oils. I just signed up with Young Living and I’m so excited to get started. I’ve seen how amazing these oils are and can’t wait to start incorporating them into my family’s life.

I also want to be more present. I get distracted so easily. I really need to focus on putting my phone down and spending more time with my family.

That’s what I’m going to be focusing on this year.

What is one for your New Years resolutions?

Thanks for reading my post.
