I was able to use up my Nexxus Pro-Mend Split End Mender and I would not repurchase this. I didn’t notice a difference in my hair at all. I’d rather use something that helps with strength and detangling. My hair gets knots easily, because of how long it is getting. When my hair was at my collar bone, it was very rare to get a single knot in it. I am tempted to do a big chop at the end of the summer to start my hair afresh without all the bleach damage. I also know that my natural hair is light enough to use the brand SPLAT on it for fun colors. I know that purple works specifically on it, because I did that back in 2013 and it was fairly easy to use.

I am decluttering my Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in 45 Orchid Hush. I actually hit major pan and had intentions on using it up. The formula has changed however and it is super crumbly. I don’t enjoy it anymore, so I am throwing it out. This is the oldest bit of makeup out of my collection and I feel like I got my money’s worth. It just would have been nice to have used it up. I am not a fan of cream blushes in general. I’d rather use powder on my oily skin, but I did enjoy the just bitten color it gave my cheeks. Now, I can move onto the cream blush stain in my project pan.

I finished up my sample of the MAC Strobe Cream in Pinklite. I really enjoyed this luminous primer and I would purchase this once I am out of my current primer and run out of liquid highlighters to mix in with my lotion that give me the same effect. It does the perfect job of primer the skin, giving me moisture, and a glow that does not emphasize texture or bother my oily skin. It just gives me a nice lit from within glow that I am all about. I am a matte girl through and through, but there is just something about healthy glowy skin (NOT DEWY) that has been calling to my lately. It looks more youthful than a matte look. I’ve been reserving my matte look for long work days in the office and special occasions where I want my makeup to last. Otherwise, I have been rocking a healthy glow instead of a matte complexion.

I also had another sample that I used up of the Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover. I really enjoyed this bi-layer makeup remover that I used on my entire face. I would get another sample as a point perk, because it was really nice. If Sephora was cruelty free, I would purchase a full bottle for them too. I highly recommend it for removing all types of makeup efficiently.

Martin bought me this to makeup for me having to go coffee free for a few days and then, his Keurig was broken so I couldn’t even use it! LOL. We got a used Keurig from my mom, so we did manage to use up this Starbucks Breakfast Blend in Medium Roast. I really enjoyed the simplicity of popping in a cup and having a good cup of coffee and the fact that someone else thought of me. I have been eyeing their specialty packs on Amazon like the caramel and the mocha coffees. Seriously considering buying a Nepresso machine and keeping it in our room.

deordorant

Used up another deodorant because you know, priorities. I still love this brand of deodorant, but I am currently using Secret. I went back to a full strength aluminum deodorant, but I will be going back to this one. It was just sold out at Walmart when I needed deodorant.

Last but not least, I was able to use up my MAC Cleanse Off Oil. It is just a baby sample, but another item out leaves room in my collection. May is my birthday month, so I have a ton of items coming into my collection this month from makeup to skincare. So, even tiny samples I am happy to be out of my collection. I really love cleanse off oils and balms. Once I finish off my full sized cleanser, I will replace it with an oil or a balm. I am more partial to a balm personally, because I feel like it gives my skin an added boost of moisture.

I was able to move out 7 items out of my collection, abide one was a declutter but I had MOSTLY used that one up as well before the texture changed. I writing this post on May 2nd and I feel like I will have maybe ten empties this month. I am mostly working on full sized items, but I do have a few samples and items that already have progress in them. I am trying to work through all of my opened products this year. I will only open a new product if I don’t have something like that opened. Next year, I plan on doing another inventory count and sticking with it. I just had/have so much going on this year that it just fell behind.

RuckPack Energy Shots

I am so happy to be bringing you a post about an All American Made In America By America company. Today, I will be talking about the healthier alternative to energy shots that supports our troops. Yes, I am talking about RuckPack Energy Shots. 5% of the proceeds goes towards The Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation. It is also founded by Marine Special Operations Forces and owned and operated by military service-members. It’s a great company/cause to spend your money on.

drink

I hear so many things about the dangers of drinking energy drinks and how their ingredients aren’t regulated by the FDA. RuckPack offers a healthier alternative that has tons of caffeine (if you want it, they also have non-caffeinated version which is my fav.). In fact, it offers the highest dose of caffeine in an energy drink currently in the market. The Energizer Nootropic Shots have all natural sweeteners, colors, and flavors. There is nothing artificial about them, which I love that about them. Also, the caffeine is from green tea, so that is also very natural and green tea has brain boosting antioxidants. These drinks even contain C0Q10, which is another powerful antioxidant that’s important in restoring caffeine during extraction.

 

So, don’t just get high on caffeine.

Give yourself a brain boost as well with RuckPack Energy Shots and Drinks.

I have a coupon code for a 20% off discount! Use code BB052 at checkout. Right now, it’s $34.99 for a pack of 15 energy shots. Giving you a total of $38.79 with shipping.

With Love,

Selena

November Empties

Happy December Everyone!

I have a lot of posts planned for this weekend/week. I have a November Reads, Sephora Haul, and review posts coming up. My test for my class is this Friday, which I’m nervous for. I passed the practice test with an 80%, but I’m still all stressed about it. I CANNOT fail, if I do I owe my work like 500 dollars for taking the course and test. Since I did well on the practice test, I should be good. I’ve also been studying a lot. As long as I get a 75% (a passing grade), I should be good. I also might be moving! I don’t want to jinx anything, so I’ll just start my post now.
