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.

Thank you for reading my post!!

Wet n Wild Eye Look!!!


Hey everyone,

I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day. My husband brought dinner home, which was amazing. Love him more everyday.

So, I did this look awhile ago when I first purchased the Wet n Wild in Not A Basic Peach palette and forgot to share.

This palette is so pigmented and blends wonderfully. The colors are great for blue eyes. Wet n Wild’s eyeshadow palettes are amazing.

I love how they threw in the blue shade. It’s great for adding a pop of color to your lower lash line.

I mostly used the two peach shades. Which I’m sure you can tell..lol. I then used the darkest shade in my outer corner and the blue shade on my lower lash line. I also placed the dark pink shimmer shade on my inner half of my lib but you couldn’t really tell I had any shimmer on my lid.

I added some black liner to my waterline and some mascara. Very easy!!!

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink in the color Ruler on my lips.

Hopefully I will be posting more makeup looks and reviews. Thanks for reading 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.

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink- Review


Hey everyone,

How’s everyone doing? If you’re in Michigan, I bet you have been freezing..lol. While I have been trying to stay warm, I have also been trying out the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lipstick.

I recently bought the shade in Lover. It’s a really pretty mid tone pink.

Maybelline’s website-

BENEFITS

Ink your lips in up to 16 HR saturated liquid matte. SuperStay Matte Ink™ features a unique arrow applicator for precise application and is available in a range of super saturated shades.

I applied the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink at 9am. It was a little tacky for maybe a half an hour but after that it dried Matte.

The first hour or so it would transfer onto my cup but after that, I didn’t notice it transferring anymore. It stayed put really well.

Here it’s been 8 hours since I applied the liquid lipstick. Obviously my makeup doesn’t look very good but the liquid lipstick still looks good. You can see a little bit of wear on the center of my bottom lip but my lips are always really dry and I think that reflects that in this picture more than the liquid lipstick coming off.

Conclusion-

I think that if this liquid lipstick lasted 16 hours it would look pretty rough. I do think that it’s long lasting and did an amazing job of not rubbing off when I ate or drank. I would definitely recommend this lipstick and will be purchasing more shades very soon.

What are your thoughts on Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink?

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.
