A Long Weekend Recap…

FullSizeRender 2

Hello Darlings!

Did everyone have a good Memorial Day? It is nice to have a longer weekend but we always need to remember why it is a Special Day. I love putting flowers on those I love and have lost. It is nice to take those moments to cherish.

Jake and I just grilled out. We bought a grill and were very excited about it because living in apartments we were not allowed to have one.

I made my favorite Jalapeno’s poppers, turkey burgers & dogs, with corn on cob! YUM YUM

I literally had 2 beers and was ready for bed!! HAHA I am getting old.

The rest of the weekend was catching up on shows and doing a few more things around the house.

It is looking like people actually live here. Most of the wall decor is up in living room as with the curtains.

We are hoping to get the rest of the rooms done soon but I have no idea what I want to do with them yet! Does this happen to anyone else?!

I am excited to start working on the outside by getting some flowers and potts. Since we are renting I want things I can take with me.

I would have posted on Monday like planned but the day of laziness got away from me.

What did you do this weekend? Do you have any renting tips?

Till the next one..

Starting a New Chapter…..

Hello Darlings!

It has been about a little over a month since my last post! I was stuck and having a serious block!

It was pure luck that Jake got a promotion in Michigan! We thought a lot about it before making the decision because it is some distance from family, friends, and well it is more expensive.

I thought a lot about what my friend Jackie would say and made a PRO/CON list. The PRO was much greater so we took the leap!

I will say it happened really fast! Like had 2 weeks to get everything packed, stored, and get our asses up here! (totally worth it)

We left Oklahoma the last week of April and got to Auburn Hills Michigan on May 5th.

We ended up at ” On the Border” and realized it was Cinco de Mayo! So of course we had to have a drink to celebrate!

Since we had little time before needing to be up here we had no place to live so we lived in an extended stay hotel for a little over two weeks.

It was a nice hotel with a kitchen where we were able to cook. It was better than having to eat out all the time. I utilized the pool and gym to try and stay up with my workouts which was really great!

I am happy to say we found a house to rent in the area and are mostly settled in. We got signed and moved in last weekend and I have been unboxing and setting everything up.

I am trying to get things set up before I start work in June ( so thankful I found a job so quickly!) and Jake is enjoying his new promotion.

I am going to get back into swing of having a post up on the normal days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) now that we are on a secure network.

Till next week!

Goodbye Blemishes & Cysts

 

 

cover
Hand-Holding High Frequency Kit

 

Hello Darlings!

Today I am going to be talking about one of my favorite tools I use on blemishes.

In Esthetics school this was a tool we learned and used a lot! This one is not as powerful as the ones that are professional that we had in school but does just as great of a job.

The high-frequency electrotherapy uses the glass electrode tube to produce high frequency current, when used on face, achieves the treatment result.

You can literally take a before pic and by the next day already see results! I use this everyday till the problem is gone. Some take longer than others it just depends on if it is a blemish or cyst. I still always notice a difference the next day.

I literally found this on amazon as did some of my classmates haha! (We love it)

You can easily use this at your home and can buy it here just like I did. You could also ask your esthetician if they offer it. Some offer as an add on and others just a nice little service.

 

inside
Hand Piece//Glass Tubes

This kit includes a few different Glass tubes that are the pieces you choose for different areas. This is great like I said for blemishes, cysts, etc.

together

 

This is super simple to use and put together. Each glass piece has a metal bar on the bottom which is what you insert into the handle. It slides in easily so no need to add a lot of pressure..Remember they are GLASS and can break easily.

The glass side is used on face or hair. Just turn the dial to intensity level wanted and run over area’s you want treated for a few seconds. (Follow on snapchat to see in action every now and again)

**DO NOT REMOVE OR ADD GLASS PIECES WHEN MACHINE IS ON**

handle

Yes the handle looks like it could be a model for other things!

 

comb tube

This comb tube is great for beards! (YES men will love this machine as well)

 

 

mushroom

This mushroom tube is my most used! I get breakouts on my jawline and neck (hormonal) usually a nasty cyst. I use this one to really cover the area and it lays flat.

 

bend

I use this one around the nose area. The shape makes it easy to get around the curves.

 

tongue

I had almost forgot this one because I really never use it. It is called the tongue tube but is NOT meant for the tongue. Use only on skin areas!

This is the easiest machine to use and I love I can use it in my home!

XOXO

Weekend Recap 3/27/17

recap 327

How was your weekend? Anything exciting or just a rest weekend?

Jake and I finally went and seen “Beauty and the Beast” on Saturday. We loved it of course even with the few changes. We really liked how they added a few things. (don’t want to spoil anything for anyone)

The rest of the day was filled with boring errands but we did swing into the Penn Square mail for some yummy chocolates. We like to swing in every now and again “See’s Candies and pick out a few chocolates for the week.

recap 327-2

Sunday was finish errand day plus catching up on a few shows. I will admit we are several episodes behind a lot of favorite shows but we have become binge watchers and this weekly crap is for the birds LOL.

We just make sure nothing is going to expire and try and wait till the season finale. For example we love BONES and it is on it’s last season. We have 3 eps to watch but we are waiting for tomorrow’s finale to air before we will do a binge. Anyone else like this with some shows?

Anyway, this week you can expect a post on a device to help with acne (prolly up on Wednesday) and beauty review on Friday. Make sure you are Subscribed to every post gets sent to your email!

March Sephora Play “17

sephora march

It’s that time again where we go over the wonderful goodies in my monthly Sephora play box!

This is a monthly subscription for $10!

 

Starting off with this lovely lipstick from Urban Decay. This is from the VICE line and is in the color “BIG BANG”. It is a creamy, bold statement color with a metallic sparkle. This is not really a color I would ever reach for…I suppose I will have to give it a go… Full Size $17

verb oil

I have not heard of VERB before so I am excited to give this Ghost Oil a try. It says it is a restorative hair oil that smooths frizz and delivers shine. In the “how to use” it suggest using at the end of a hair do…on the tips. Full Size $14

 

glamglow

I have tried a lot of the Glamglow masks and love them! This is their mega illuminating moisturizer. It looks like it has a little bit of a tint to it so it might be good for no make up days or quick errand days. It does say you can wear alone or with foundation so I imagine it has no coverage just helps hydrate and plump skin. Full Size $49

 

perfume
Atelier Cologne: Clementine California

This box always comes with a perfume sample and this one comes with a cute postcard. It is ATELIER COLOGNE : CLEMENTINE CALIFORNIA it smells of citrus and florals. It is not to strong and wears nicely. Full Size $130

 

josie maran

 

I use the hair oil in my moisturizer from Josie Maran but that is all I have really used. This is a Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm. It claims to prime and moisturize the skin which seems great! I will use this as a primer most likely and let you know my thoughts. Full size $36

 

becca

Since this month’s theme was all about the glow it continues with Becca’s Shimmering skin perfector in opal. This is a light cream that adds a subtle luminosity and golden pearl shade for a lovely dewy look. You can use this mixed in foundation for all over or as a highlight. I will use it as a highlight myself. Full Size $41

 

I was happy with this month’s box even thought the lip is a bit bold. I will use everything else for sure!

What did you get in yours? We would all love to know!
