Current Skin Care Routine

 Welcome back to my blog!!!

Today I'll be sharing my current skincare routine. Normally these products are scattered all over my house and I had to round them all up to get pictures....I learned today that I use A LOT of skin care products. But I must say my skin is in AMAZING condition.

I have extremely dry skin all year round. If you also have dry skin I would recommend checking some of these out.

Here we go - lets walk through what I do everyday for my skin care routine.

 First off in the morning I wash my face. I use the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam. This is a great cleanser, it gets my skin clean without drying it out. I follow up with the Caudalie Moisturizing Toner. 

 Then I move onto moisturizing. Right now I'm using the Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream. There is nothing special about this cream and honestly I'm just trying to use up the rest so I can move onto something different. I don't find this does anything and it's not really that moisturizing if you have dry skin. Next I mix the Sephora Instant Moisturizer & Cover Fx Custom Infusion drops - hydration. This is an amazing combination! My skin LOVES oil so much, this hydrates my skin really well. I let it sit and soak in for about 10min before I start putting on any makeup....especially because I'm using oil I want to make sure it's absorbed before I start my foundation routine. 

I was really shocked at how much I loved the Sephora product - normally I stick to well known name brands. This is probably one of the more affordable products I use in my skincare routine so I will defiantly be keeping it in the mix. 

 At the end of the day I take off all my makeup and then cleanse my skin. I use the same products as the morning expect I use the Shisedo cleaner with my clarisonic for an extra clean to make sure all my makeup is off my face.

Then I use a VERY expensive product - I really didn't want to like this product because it was so expensive but it has been amazing for my skin. It's the Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil. My skin really loves this stuff....again it's another oil and my skin really loves oil. I let this sit for about 10min before putting my Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Night Cream along with the Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour Cream and that's it!!

These are just some extra products, I defiantly don't use these everyday only 2-3 times a week. Let's face it most of use are busy and just don't always have time for extra treatments. But when I do this is what I use, first off is the Caudalie Moisturizing Mask. I wish I could use this everyday because my skin LOVES it. This puts a lot of moisture back into my skin, now that we're going into the winter season I'll probably use this 3 times a week. Another mask I have is the Sephora Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying - this is a great & affordable mask. I only use this for blemishes, it really clears anything up instantly! Last I have the Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoliator, this is something I use in the shower whenever I was to give my face a quick scrub. It's not too harsh of an exfoliator but it gets the job done!

The great thing about all these products is even though most of them are very pricey they have all lasted me a long time & they all work amazing for my skin. So in my opinion I think it's worth the price point!

Let me know if you've used any of these products in the comments below. I would love to hear what you thought about them. 

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you have a fantastic week ahead!

Fitness Update

Happy Fitness Friday!!!

It's my favorite day of the week.

Yesterday I posted a quick entry about where I've been...if you read it you know I've been BUSY with life events. With that being said I've really let my fitness go. It's been the hardest thing to set aside my workout time in order to move, build furniture and settle into our new place. I love to workout, it makes me feel energized, relaxed, and just overall amazing! When I miss my workouts I basically just feel like crap.

This weekend my husband and I are going to be setting up our fitness studio - FINALLY!!! It wont be anything fancy since it will be in an unfinished basement but it will just be a nice and large space to burn some calories! Then I can buckle down and start workout out again.

Check back next week and I will show you our basement transformation.

Blogtober FAIL | Where have I been?

Well I can officially say that my first attempt of Blogtober was a big fat FAIL!

I had the best intentions...I had a schedule of every post I wanted to do for the full 31 days...I had determination....I had drive...but my world got turned upside down and I fell off track on day 11.

So what have I been doing??

Well in the middle of October I attended a 3 day course to become a Beachbody fitness instructor. I walked away with 3 fitness certifications to teach group fitness for Insanity LIVE, CIZE LIVE and Piyo!! It was an extremely proud moment for me.

During October I was notified that our house was FINALLY ready...hurry! My husband & I have been in the process of building our dream home for the past year. It was supposed to be completed in June but was seriously delayed. October we were scrambling to sort things out with the place we were currently renting, packing up and preparing to move! All while I was denied vacation time to do so...what a nightmare!

We are finally settling into our new place. We have bought TONS of furniture and are doing home projects to put personal touches on our new place. It's been so much fun but stressful at the same time.

All and all I know that none of these are valid excusses but sometimes LIFE just gets in the way. I've had to push aside some fun projects (like my blog) in order to focus on other tasks.


I have missed my blog SO MUCH! I am very happy to be back at it!

I am going back to my normal schedule of posting every Monday & Friday. Please be sure to follow my blog if you want to be notified when new blog posts go up so you wont miss a post.

Today is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. Here is what I'm thankful for this year:

1) Supportive Family
2) Wonderful Husband
3) My Health
4) Great Friends
5) Having a roof over my head
6) My New Employment Opportunity
7) Google
8) My Pets
9) My Education
10) Spellcheck (but not auto correct)

What are you thankful for? Share in the comments below

Blogtober Day 10 | New To My Makeup Collection From Sephora

Sally Hershberger 24K Root Envy Ultimate Root Boost - This has been a great root boost. My hair is really fine and very flat, I don't have a lot of volume at all to my hair. I've been using this after I get out of the shower and blow-dry my hair upside down.


Nars Lip Gloss (Chelsea Girls) - I have a few different color in the Nars Lip Gloss line. I've heard a lot of people talk about this color and I can see why. I love this shade of pink. Its a very nude pink that complements my natural lip color. It can be worn on it's own or over top of a lipstick. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo (Cool Taupe) - This isn't new to my collection but the color is. I love this powder and I was using Medium Brown. The color matched my natural hair perfectly but recently I've lighted my hair. The medium brown was getting way too dark for me now so I've switched to cool taupe. Perfect color for lighter hair. 

Velour Silk Lash Collection - I got my first taste of these lashes from Sephora. These are great lashes and they are very durable. So far I've used my 3 times and they seem to have very little wear and tear on them.  You defiantly get bang for your buck. 

What's new in your makeup collection? Tell me in the comments below 

Blogtober Day 9 | 3 Day Refresh Round 2 Update

It's been about a month since my round 2 of the 3 Day Refresh. Good time for an update on how I'm doing and what's been going on lately.

If you are interested in reading about my round 2 experience check out my blog post 3 Day Refresh | Round 2.

I just did another set of measurements and I am very happy to say that I have kept all my results! In fact I've lost an addition inch off my thighs and wist in this past month. The only thing I can't compare is my weight...unfortunately my scale is broken and I haven't replaced it just yet. But weight isn't everything. Sometimes people focus too much on their weight and not enough on their overall results.

Since completing the 3 Day Refresh my energy level has been GREAT! I definitely think that my fitness level has everything to do with how my energy level is on a day to day basics. Energy and how you feel is everything.

If you  have any questions about my results or curious about something I didn't mention please feel free to leave questions in the comments below.

Have you tried the 3 Day Refresh? What's your experience been like? Feel free to share in the comments below.

Blogtober Day 8 | 10 Things I Do As A Beachbody Coach

What's a Beachbody coach? What do you actually do as a coach?

Here are 10 things I do as a Beachbody coach

1) Use the Beachbody programs - probably the  most important out of EVERYTHING. I don't just sell and tell other people to use these programs. I use, believe and have seen results myself from using these programs. 

2) Drink Shakeology - Beachbody is more than at home fitness programs. They have a whole line of nutrition supplements and it's important as a coach to keep myself fit and healthy in order to encourage others to do the same. Practice what you preach. 

3) Tell Everyone your a Beachbody coach - Get the word out there! A lot of my business at the start was all word of mouth. Tell everyone and anyone that you are a Beachbody coach.

4) Get on Social Media - The best tool at your disposal is social media. It's the best way to reach a lot of people and develop relationships with your customers. Get an account for everything you can Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat...Everything!

5) Invite people to try Beachbody programs - if you don't ask they wont try. 

6) Invite people to join your team - In order to build a team of coaches you have to ask people to join your team. Share what being a Beachbody coach has done for you and what it could do for them. 

7) Post of social media daily - it's not enough to just get a social media account you have to use it! Let people know that you are actively using Beachbody and actively coaching. 

8) Connect with your team - Your team is a powerful tool. You have your upline to reach out to when you need help or advice. I have gotten so much help from upline over the past few months. My sponsor coach was there to get me started and work with me to get my team started. 

9) Build your own team - if you want to be a business builder as a Beachbody coach -  the only way to do it is to build a team. If you want to know how or where to start ask your upline to help you get started and how to recruit coaches. 

10) Help others get active, fit & healthy - I try to connect with at least 3 people every month and get them on track to get active, fit & healthy. I know 3 doesn't sound like a lot but not everyone is ready to get started on their fitness journey when I first start a conversation with them. Be patient and learn to listen and work with your customer to help reach THEIR goals. Everyone's goals are going to be different.

All Beachbody coaches are different. This is just my experience with the company and a few things that I do as a coach.

If you want to join my Beachbody team send me an email and lets chat.

Blogtober Day 7 | Life update

What's new?

Here is a very short life update that I've been up to lately....since getting married in July life has been a BLUR.

We've been very busy wrapping up loose ends and most of my wedding stuff I'm selling online to re-cope the initial cost of the wedding. It takes a lot time to get ads up and organize selling everything off. We got our wedding pictures from our photographers which are amazing! Now the task of going through all the pictures and making sure that grandparents, parents and our other family members have copies to remember the day by.

In addition to that I've been a very busy Beachbody coach and loving it! It doesn't matter how busy I get I always make time for other people and coach them. In about 1 week I got to get certified to teach LIVE Beachbody classes....which I'm excited and nervous for. I've never done anything like this before so I'm not really sure what to expect.

Finally the last update - I'm moving very soon! Over the past year my husband & myself have been building a house. We finally got our letter saying it's almost done so we will be moving in very soon. This past week I've been a busy bee packing up the home we've had for the past 4 years....its been a lot of work.

Until next time

Blogtober Day 6 | Jaclyn Hill Fall Favorites Tag

This is a fall tag was created by Jaclyn Hill on YouTube. I've seen a few of these tags done so far and even though no one tagged me I really wanted to incorporate this into one of my Blogtober posts.

Here we go!

Favorite Candle
I did a post last week all about my new fall candles. If I had to just pick one out of that bunch I would say the Leaves candle from Bath & Body Works in my favorite.

Favorite Lip Color
My favorite lip color is nudes - all year round! I don't care on the season. Right now I'm loving Honey Love by Mac

Favorite Drink
Finally I've transitioned to hot drinks and I love to cozy up with some mint tea

Favorite Blush
Definitely has to be Makeup Geek Bliss!

Favorite Clothing Item
Riding boots, leggings and a long cozy sweater! If I want to get really cozy I will throw on a scarf to go with that.

Favorite Fall Movie
I've honestly been sooo busy I probably haven't been out to see a movie since spring time!

Favorite Fall TV Show
I love that all my TV shows are finally coming back on! Right now I'm loving 3: Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife and Heartland.

Favorite Thanksgiving Food

Favorite Halloween Costume
I'm not really big on celebrating halloween and I rarely dress up. When I do the costume has to be easy to move in and comfortable. I think my favorite costume was last year I went as a bank robber - jeans, stripped shirt, black mask and red lips!

If your reading this blog post then I TAG YOU! Either write and blog post or make a YouTube video and make sure to leave the URL in the comments below so I can read your tag.

Blogtober Day 5 | September 2015 Favorites

Makeup Geek eye shadows: I've heard of Makeup Geek for a long time but this is my first time buying from them. Now I have to ask myself...why have I waited so long? These eye shadows are amazing. Its really hard when you can't actually go into a store to test the quality and color before purchasing but I looked up swatches and did my research before buying-so far I've been very happy with my color selection. The top rows are regular eye shadows and the bottom row are the new duochrome shadows. I pretty much use this palette for my everyday makeup. I have had so much fun playing and putting together different looks. If you want to see a more in-depth blog post on these shadows make sure you are following me....I have a blogtober post coming up later this month on this palette. 

Estee Lauder New Dimension Shape+Fill Expert Serum: Just recently I switched to this serum and I'm loving it. I haven't been using it long enough to tell if it's been making a difference but it's suppose to help shape your cheeks and jawline. I really need so help with my jaw line. My jaw is EXTREMELY round and I have to do a lot of contouring everyday to make it look more sharp. Hopefully this will help me with that. 

Cover FX Custom Infusion Drops: I still love my custom cover drops so when I saw these infusion drops I knew I had to try them. I got the hydration and radiance drops. I use the hydration drops with my moisturizer and the radiance with my foundation. I love them both and if you have dry skin you will too. If you are more on the normal or oily side I would definitely stay away from these. 

Shiseido Wrinkle Resist 24 Eye cream: I've been using this as my night eye cream for about a what a difference. I'm not that old yet but I've really struggled with my under eye area. I've started to get fine lines and bumps - nothing so far has been helping. Since I've started using this cream I've noticed that my fine lines are actually diminishing! 

Sephora Mud Mask Purifying & Mattifying: Unfortunately for me I'm allergy to the GlamGlow masks. An employee at Sephora recommended this one to me and I'm very happy she did. I used about once a week and it really purifies and deep cleans my skin. This make is also great if you want to do a spot gets rid of my spots instantly! I don't like using my hands to apply this so I use a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush. Plus the price point on this you just can't beat. This is mask is $24 and the GlamGlow is $76. 

What were your favorite products from September?

Blogtober Day 4| Irresistible Me

I got presented with the opportunity to try Irresistible Me hair extensions and of course I said YES! This was my first time trying out hair extensions and I was very impressed. As soon as I tried these I fell in love with them instantly. 

I choose from their Royal Remy Hair which is sooo soft and looks completely natural. When you place your order you get to customer EVERYTHING. First off you choose your color...the color that I picked was Royal Ash Blonde (#10). Then you pick the length you want the hair extensions. My hair is already pretty long so I was going for more volume look than length, I picked 18 inches as that's about the length of my hair currently. Finally you pick your weight. I choose 200grams which is the most amount you can order...again I was going for volume. 

The 200 grams came with a VERY generous amount of hair. In total I got 10 pieces:
1 pc of 4 clips
2 pcs of 3 clips
5 pcs of 2 clips
2 pcs of 1 clips

The clips are amazing....I was so afraid that they would fall out but they actually sit very secure in your hair. Don't get me wrong it does take some time and practice to get these in and hid them under your hair so they don't peek through but as soon as you get that done you'll love the way they look. 

Left: Before, Right: After
Keep in mind that I wasn't going for length and I will have to take these into a hair dress to even out the length so it blend better with my hair.  From the back there is a slight difference but not too much

 Left: Before, Right: After
The major difference is really shown in the front. Again the length is pretty much the same but I have WAY more volume in the crown...which is exactly what I was going for.

In the before and after pictures I didn't even use all the clip ins. All I have in is:
1 pc of 4 clips
1 pcs of 3 clips
2 pcs of 2 clips

If I really wanted even more volume I could have thrown them all in! Its great because this is so versatile. Depending on the look you are going for your could just throw in a few clip ins for a less volume look or if you want to go all out just put them all in....completely up to you.

Have you tried these extensions? What are your thoughts? Leave them in the comments below, I would love to hear your experience.

Blogtober Day 3 | Fixing Hot Roots

Picture above: before

Picture above: after

If you've ever gotten hot roots you know...its not cute! Recently I used Wella Permanent Liquid Haircolor in hi lift to lighten my brown hair. It worked out great.....well great except for the fact that my roots were a bright orange. 

It didn't look too bad if I pulled my hair half up or pull&clip my bangs back. Leaving my hair down completely was absolutely a no go.

To fix this problem I used Wella Permanent Liquid Haircolor in 5A (light ash brown) with 10 volume developer. I only painted this on my hair at the roots and down for about 1 inch. I didn't let it sit for very long, about 10min.

Then I rinsed everything out and did a hair mask (for me this is a must after EVERY time I color my hair).

Voila! No more hot roots.

Blogtober Day 2 | Fall Candles

Welcome back to day 2!!

One of my favorite things to do when fall comes around is to stock up on fall candles.  I love fall scents and scenery, these candles fill my house with a warm wonderful aroma.

All these candles were picked up at Bath & Body Works....if you see anything you like I would hurry to the store soon! They normally sell out very quickly of the fall scents. 

Starting on the top row going left to right:

White Barn Vanilla Bean - this is not a fall specific scent but both my husband & I enjoy vanilla so some sort of vanilla candles always ends up coming home with us

Marshmallow Fireside - if you love the smell of marshmallows you will love this scent. It smells exacting like the name your toasting a marshmallow over a fire. You get the yummy smell of the browning marshmallow with the burning smoky wood and some sweet vanilla mixed in

Leaves - I think every YouTuber and Blogger has this candles...this is honestly my first time buying it. Every fall when I head in to buy my fall scents this one is already SOLD OUT! I was so happy to see that it was still in stock this year. This one is probably my favorite out of ll 6 and it's the one I am currently burning

Going from the bottom left to right:

Pumpkin Pecan Waffles: This one we picked up because they were burning it in the store and smelt sooo good! If you love the smell of waffles in the morning then you will LOVE this scent

Sweater Weather - this is candle to burn when you want to just cozy up by the fire. It has some great oils that just make me want to light a fire and cozy up with a good book

Brown Sugar Allspice - This one is a great scent if you like the smell of brown sugar. This makes your house smell like you've been baking treats all day...but really all you did was light a candle

Did you pick up any candles for fall? If you want to share what you picked up please leave it in the comments below, I would love to know what you're burning this season.

Tanks for stopping by!

Blogtober Day 1


It's been too long. I have to admit I've gotten way off track with my blogging schedule.

To make up for the lack of posts I am challenging myself to Blogtober! What's Blogtober? Basically everyday for the month of October I will be posting on my by the end of this month I will have 31 blog posts. Crazy! I know, I know, it's going to be a lot of work and a huge commitment but I'm defiantly up for the challenge.

This month is going to be incredible busy for me. I have huge plans to advance my business (Beachbody coaching) and I am still packing and dejunking my house for our move - for those of you who don't know my husband and I have bought a house last year and we are just waiting for it to be build - which should be VERY soon.

All and all I am very happy to be doing Blogtober, the posts that are going to be going up are a little bit of everything! Little bit of beauty, fitness, and life updates.

Bio Seaweed Gel | Nail Art

This weekend I got to play around with some gel polish from Bio Seaweed Gel. The colors I picked is Ottawa & Montreal.

I highly recommend if you are thinking about buying some of these polishes that you check out some color swatches online. As seen in the picture above the actual color is slightly different than what's on the bottle. 

This is a very unique nail polish...this polish will actually cure in sunlight OR with an LED lamp. I have tried it both ways and it works! I actually really enjoyed taking my nail polish outside and painting my nails on the deck, it was a great way to spend some time outside this summer.

Unfortunately over the weekend here in Edmonton it rain so I used my LED lamp to create this look.

I stared by coating my nail with 2 coats of Ottawa and then I drew on a cute pink bow with Montreal. Here's a tip if you don't have any nail tools like me. To create designs like these use a fine point pen ( on that you don't care about using after or one that is out of ink) as your tool. Put a dollop of polish on a piece of paper and dip the pen in. Brush off any excess polish before starting your design. If you are a beginning practice drawing your design on paper before attempting it on your nails. The Montreal color reminds me of a Barbie pink so I though a cute bow design would be appropriate. 

If you like this nail art please go over to @bioseaweedgel Instagram page and vote on this nail art between Sept 14-16. There will be a nail art contest going on featuring looks done by members of CBB (Canadian Beauty Bloggers). The winner will get bragging rights and host a Bio Seaweed Gel giveaway on their blog! Please go vote so I can give you guys some awesome prizes from this company. 

If you are interested in trying these gel colors out you can use the coupon code "MSPAMBLAM" for $10 off at . 

Share below if you have tried out this polish and what color did you pick up?

3 Day Refresh | Round 2

I'T OFFICAL!! I successful completed a 2nd round of the 3 Day Refresh.

I am so excited to share these results with you...even I'm impressed with how things have turned out. So first off I want to share with you so information, my 1st round of the 3 Day Refresh if you are interested in seeing my results please go check out Round 1 3 Day Refresh Results

I completed round 1 a long time ago in April, my results were amazing! So good in fact that my wedding dress I was having altered no longer fit and I had to have major alternations done. I purchased my 2nd kit at the beginning of summer but I was too scared to do it before my wedding because I didn't want to pay for another huge alteration. I decided to wait and I did round 2 Sept 1-3.

From the time I did my 1st round (in April) to the time I did my 2nd round (in September) I am happy to report I did not gain back ANY weight I lost. I did not gain ANY inches I took off!!! I know there are a lot of detox or cleanse programs out there that will help you lose a lot of weight but as soon as you stop the program - you gain that weight back. That is not the case with this program.

I will say that I tried my best to continue to workout as much as I could, although I was busy planning a weddings so I was probably only worked out maybe 3 times a week. However, I NEVER stopped my Shakeology. I've been on my Shakeology for 9 straight months and it is really helping me with my eating/nutrition.

Between April and September here is what happened...

-my weight stayed the same
-I lost 1 inch around my waist
-I lost 1 inch around my thigh
-I lost 1 inch off my butt
-all my other measurements stayed the same

So how did I make out doing my 2nd round? As you can see from the before and after pictures above you can tell a slight difference - or at least I can anyway.

Here are my results for round 2...

-I lost 4 pounds
-I lost 2 inches off my hips
-I lost 4 inches around my stomach
-I lost 1 inch around my thigh
-I lost 1 inch off my butt

TRULY AMAZING!!! I thought with this being my 2nd round I wouldn't get as good of results but turns out I was wrong - and boy am I happy I was wrong!

This program just continues to amaze me and I can't wait to do round 3!

Of course if you are interested in an update in a few weeks I will be posting on my blog how things are going and if I gain back any of the weight. Make sure you subscribe to my blog so you get an update when my blog posts go live.

If you want to try this program please feel free to email me and I would be more than happy to get you set up to do your own round of the 3 Day Refresh.

Happy Friday!

Product Empties September 2015

Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel with Soy Extracts - This was an OK shaving gel but the bottom of the container rusted and left a ring in my tub which I was not impressed with. I don't think I will repurchase this for that reason

Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover - This was a great eye makeup removed. I got these tiny samples from Sephora by redeeming some of my points. I am trying a new eye makeup removed but I don't know if it works as good as this one

Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream - This was my favorite eye cream...that is until I tried the Fresh lotus eye cream. This one is a very light weight eye cream and I wanted something a little bit richer. This really was a great cream and I did enjoy it while it lasted but I wont repurchase, I'll be sticking with the lotus cream (I've already gone through 2 jars)

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream With Super 7 Complex - I've gone through 4 jars of this's amazing. I have VERY dry skin so I do mix this with a beauty oil and my skin just drinks in the moisture. Highly recommend this face cream!

Cover FX Natural Finish Oil Free Foundation - I know a lot of people love this foundation but it just wasn't my thing. I found this sat on top of my skin and looked like I was wearing makeup, I prefer something more natural looking. I wont be repurchasing this

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Eye Cream - I thought I could cheap out on my skin care and just pick something up from the drugstore....but I really didn't like this eye cream. It was greasy and just sat under my eyes. I had to wipe this off with a tissue before applying my makeup

NeoStrata Intense Anti-Aging Eye Cream Fruit Stem Cells - I got this little baby sample with the purchase of my Neostrata eye lash serum, this was an ok eye cream. I was using it as a night time cream because it was a little greasy. I didn't end up repurchasing it

Josie Maran 100 percent Pure Argan Oil - this is a great oil! I used it for a couple different things (mixing with foundation, on the ends of my hair, on my face, ect) This is such a versatile product the things you can do with this oil is endless and I think therefore makes it worth every penny!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - I know a lot of people love this mascara but it just wasn't for me. This was a little baby sample from Sephora, I used it up but I won't be repurchasing the full size. I didn't find anything amazing or spectacular about the formula or just seemed like a regular mascara so I'll save my money

August 2015 Favorites

Here are my favorites for the month of August:

Sephora Eye Mask - There are 8 different eye masks each with their own unique benefits. My 2 favorite are the Pearl and Rose - I know, I know, the rose isn't actually in the picture above but that's because I just used my last one

Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy - Right now this is my favorite lip balm, it's something that is very moisturizing and I find I only have to apply it 2-3 times a day. With other lip balms I am typically applying them every hour and even though they are also moisturizing I don't want to be applying lip balm all day! 

Caudalie Moisturizing Toner - LOVE this toner, it is very moisturizing for my dry skin. My skin feels amazing after I apply this, my skin feels very fresh and hydrated 

Becca Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Pop - What can I say about this highlighter that already hasn't been said? Probably nothing but this really is a truly an amazing  highlighter for fair skin gals. I wear this everyday and I wore this on my wedding day, it showed up great in pictures

Z Palette - In the past I've only really gotten pre made palettes like the Urban Deacy Nacked Palette. Just recently I've started making my own palettes and it has been so much fun! I love customizing and perfecting a palette that suits me and my taste and my skin tone

What was your favorites this month?
