“Get Naked” (I Couldn’t Resist)

20140227-084854.jpg

I recently purchased a couple of new makeup goodies from Ulta. I’m obsessed with lipsticks and lip glosses so when I saw these beauties it was love at first sight. It’s funny how stores know the perfect way to cast light over products to draw you near, lol! I love the packaging it’s so trendy, sleek and classy. Now I’m not much of an eye shadow wearer but I like this Naked 3 palette. It’s transitional from day to night which is perfect. I thinking about getting the Naked 1 or 2 even though some colors are similar.

The lipgloss colors I purchased are:
*Freestyle
*Lovechild
*Rule34
*Walk of Shame

If I had one request for the glosses it would be for them to be a little more pigmented (and I have fairly pinkish lips). The shine was great and it wasn’t sticky which I hate in a gloss.

What are your favorite Naked products?

P.S. I’m hooked, I guess they finally got me #Naked

” I Got A Thing For Cognac”

Hey Y’all !! I have been a member of JustFab for a couple of months now and I get lucky every now and again with my purchases I just simply LOVE.  Last month this beauty fell into my lap. Literally fell in front of my eyes. I was going to skip my purchase for the month and this populated in “my personalized boutique”. It’s called the Martin bag. I have no words…. yes I do, lol. I like the color it’s the perfect Cognac, the size and depth of the bag are perfect, the strap is the perfect length to carry on the shoulder without being annoying like most bags with oversized straps and the handles are  perfect for the forearm look. Soooo about having no words, lol!!!  It really can handle EVERYTHING I need it to in a handbag. The best $39.95 I’ve spent on JustFab thus far.

A Blueberry and Strawberry smoothie…

I purchased a single FaberWare blender from Walmart to make smoothies on the go more quickly.  I’ve been doing this every morning before work and it’s really working great. I really feel more energized since typically I skip breakfast; it’s good to have something healthy to start off with.

I used blueberries, strawberries, plain yogurt with a splash or two of Almond Milk.

Healthy benefits of blueberries:

  • Healthy immune system
  • Perserve vision
  • Banish belly fat
  • Bone health
  • Relieves constipation
  • Brain food
  • Heart food
  • Cancer fighter
  • Lower blood sugar
  • bladder aid

  • Lowers cardiovascular disease
  • Promote bone health
  • Prevent cancer

I actually prefer my smoothies in the morning a bit chunky (or pieces of fruit) it makes me feel like I’m really on my health or really get more of the benefits of the fruit.
