Rainforest Mist

For Secret Body Spray Rainforest Mist Brazil

Shadow and Serena

I thought this was deodorant, since they sell it with the deodorant. It is actually just a body spray, so no wonder why it never worked for my B.O. I will not repurchase. What is the point of this body spray? If I want a body spray, I will use my perfume sprays from Victoria Secret, not this brand. A totally pointless product for me. I do not recommend this at all. The scent isn’t even all that great anyway. It is a “refresh” spray that literally does nothing for B.O. My first fail at an all natural deodorant try on. I need to move towards more natural deodorant. I want to try the La Fresh from Sephora and give it a try. A full size is like $10 to $14, but I want to try one of the mini kits if it is worth it for the price. Otherwise, I’ll just buy one full size.

With Love,

Secret Action *Day 12*

Secret Invisible Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant in Paris Romantic Rose 48 HR Odor Protection


What It Is:

An invisible solid deodorant with 48 hour odor protection.

Key Ingredients:

Aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex gly, stearyl alcohol, petrolatum, hydrogenated castor oil, talc, fragrance, paraffin.

How It Feels/Smells/Looks:

It is a solid white deodorant that smells very floral and sweet. It feels smooth on freshly shaved arms, but will ball up on the slightest bit of stubble.

Why I Like It:

I really like the scent of this one, but beyond that this is just an average deodorant for me. I still sweat and soak the underarms of my tee-shirts that cling to that area. I have a sweating problem, but there has to be some kind of deodorant that is better at preventing sweat/perspiration. Does anyone know of any really good deodorants that they swear by? I’m in the market for a new one. I’ve tried the Dove Spray Deodorant and I’m not a real fan of it.

Final Verdict: Secret

For Secret Outlast Unscented Antiperspirant/Deodorant


What it is: A deodorant that lasts 48 hours and goes on clear while being unscented.

Key Ingredients: A lot of chemical names and added fragrance to mask its natural scent. An oxymoron.

How it feels/smells/looks: It has a nice clean crisp scent that I love. It is a clear, thick gel. It feels nice and smooth going on, which I like. This stick also lasted me a long time as well.

Why I like it: I enjoy the scent and the consistency of the product. I have a sweating problem. I over-sweat. I’m sweating all the time, even if I am comfortable. If I’m nervous, welcome to wet valley, because I already sweated through my shirt just thinking about it. So, it does not surprise me that this did not fully work on me. It did not last 48 hours, more like 8 to 12. It went on clear, but dried white and clumpy. It did nothing to prevent my sweat but like I said, I have a clinical problem. Since using this, I have bought a prescription deodorant and I use it in combination with another deodorant.

Auburn Mall Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I bought a couple of things a few weeks ago for my new job and since I am in love with what I bought, I thought that I would still share them with all of you. I do not know if two items count as a haul, but I did get a great deal on all of these items. Here is what I got:

Sears Metaphor Carson 4204 in Purple in size 8 US Medium, Originally 29.99 USD, Paid 7.99 USD


These high heeled pumps were a definite steal for the price. I wear them once to twice a week. I am still at the spot of breaking them in and getting calluses on the spots that rub my toes. I need to get blister pads, so that I can be more comfortable in my own shoes. I also need to buy a pair of boots, possibly this Friday. Get ready for more hauls. lol.

Forever 21 Harleem Pant Long Wove in Burgundy/Black in Medium, Originally 14.80 USD, Paid 10.90 USD


I love, love, love these pants! They are super comfy and look very trendy. I love the bold tribal print. I usually pair them with a simple tee shirt top and a printed sweater. I am so not afraid of mixing contrasting prints that go together like plaid on plaid or plaid on tribal. Harleem pants are really like classy pajama pants that are acceptable to wear in public. Dani, you would loves these pants as well. I could see you pulling off the tribal print.

Well, that was my tiny haul. Are you guys enjoying Octoberfest?! I know that I am a few days behind, but I plan on catching up during the long weekend.

With Love,

June Favorites

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Another month has came and went. Sorry about being so late on my June favorites, but I have been really busy with work and haven’t had much time to type up my favorites post. I have some time now though, so I thought that I would get it started even if it doesn’t get uploaded until later tonight. I hope everyone is having a great Fourth of July Weekend, whether you are going away or staying home. If you are like me, your only day off is Sunday, so you better enjoy it! Lol. It is the fifth day of #Julamorous! I liked fewer things this month, but still a lot of things. I have a lot of things, so really that is to be expected. So without further ado, I am going to just jump into it.


Body Lotion


DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Body Lotion

I have been loving this as a nice neck/decolletage lotion to go with my matching fragrance. This was a nice light liquidy lotion for hot and humid June. I like that the lotion wasn’t heavy and it soaked right into my skin. I love the nice light, floral scent. It really helped my perfume last longer and it delivered a more layered scent. I am definitely a convert of buying my fragerances with the matching lotions. I just think that the scent pay off is so much better when paired together. I also think that if you used any lotion, it would do the same thing. Of course, a different lotion wouldn’t have the same scent, so it would be slightly different. I think that I used up a third of the tube this month.

Dove Sensitive

Dove Advanced Care Sensitive 48h Antiperspirant Deodorant

I have been really loving this deodorant since I bought it at the end of May. Since I have been using it, it has made my armpits softer and less irritated during/after shaving. It is like not sensitive at all anymore. Plus, I do not nick myself anymore, which helps a lot. This glides on nice and smooth and it doesn’t have much of a scent. I personally layer my deodorant, because I really sweat at the slightest temperature fluctuation. This is a great base application. I would try other types in this line. I think the next one that I would try would be the skin lightening one, because the skin under my armpits are looking a little…tan. I really like this deodorant, though and I have never really had a solid favorite before.

Secret Body Spray

Secret Re-Fresh Brazil Rainforest Mist Body Spray

This is a light deodorant spray that I have been loving over my Dove deodorant for the fresh scent alone. I think it does a better job at covering up odor and just making me feel fresher when it has been yucky out, aka sweltering. It does not smell like a rain forest unfortunately, but it does smell like the great outdoors. There are a few other scents, which I would be willing to try. This has been a lot better than using perfumed body spray, because they do not have that slight deodorant quality. I think that regular body spray just doesn’t cut it, when compared to something that powders down to have that odor soaking technology. For the summertime, it was really worth the investment, plus I had a coupon.


the comforter

Lush The Comforter Solid Bubble Bar

This delivers the best bubbles ever!!! It turned my water the prettiest color of pale, petal pink. It was pure perfection. The bubbles were frothy and lavish. They lasted until I had to get out of the tub and I was sad to see the bubbles and pink water drain away. I was in there for an hour though, so it really had to go. I only used an eighth of the bar. So this will give you a good eight baths. I’m going to use less next time, because I hate wasting bubbles. 😦 The scent was amazing, like I was bathing in cotton candy and yummy black currant. This is a total princess product and I will be repurchasing this. I will be taking pics the next time that I use this, because I want to share the beauty.


shower jelly

Lush Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly

The scent matches The Comforter and it is such fun to use. I use my exfoliating gloves and rub this between my hands to get a bit of lather. This jelly will last a long time, using it this way. I want to try it chilled from the freezer as well. I don’t own a loofah, so I cannot try it that way. I do not think that this is a really foamy product. It is more of a creamy consistency, which is fine with me since it is more moisturizing that way. It is fun to play with it the shower and is really a novelty product that you have to try at least once. I’m not sure that I would buy this again, but it is worth buying just to play with it.


Perfume spray

DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Eau De Parfum Spray

This is the prettiest scent of perfume that I own. It is lightly fruity and very floral. I would call it a very girly perfume. I love that the perfume is pink and that it is in the shape of an apple, which is super cute! I have had this in my collection for almost a year, but I just really used it so much in June. I’m a finicky person and I like to change my perfume as often as my hairstyle. So, sticking with any perfume a month long is a major feat for me. I never get pulled in by cute packaging. I have to love the scent for the packaging to even gain any traction in my mind. The perfume is also very light and crisp with a hint of grapefruit.


blue and white scrub

Lush Ocean Salt Face & Body Scrub

Let me start off my saying that I only use this on my face and not on my body. Using this product on my body would be very wasteful, because this does so much for the acne on my face and I just need a dab to get a good scrub. This is really perfect for oily, acne prone skin. It helps me to get over my breakouts faster and keeps my skin clearer for a longer period of time. If I skip this nightly treatment, my skin definitely suffers. I do not know how I ever got along without this product. It has been a miracle worker, since for some reason my skin has decided to breakout really bad for no reason recently. I will elaborate more in my upcoming skin care routines. I have decided to make my skincare routines a season series, where I update it every time we go into a new season. My skincare changes all of the time, so this should be interesting for you guys. The short of it is, I am in love with this face scrub and it has inspired me to give Lush another try with skincare products. (I wasn’t a big fan of the aqua marina expiration tag.)


Butter glossEclair

NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair (BLG02)

I have been wearing this nonstop, since I received this in my Ipsy bag in June. It is the perfect petal pink that is more preferable to me than a nude. I still like that it is a flush pink and glides on smoothly. It really does feel like butter on your lips…in a good way. It keeps my lips moisturized without all the stickiness. I wouldn’t be surprised if I ran out of it soon. This does not leave a stain, which is the only thing that would make this product even better in my opinion. I love how inexpensive this brand is and that I can actually go out and buy this gloss before I run out. I will be picking more of these up in August or September at my local Sephora.



On My Way by Lea Michelle

Dani has got me addicted to this song and now, I want to get her album. That is how much I love her now. I never used to like her on Glee, but this album has a totally different vibe that I am liking. So, thank you very much!

So, that is it for my favorites. What was yours?
