Post Packages from the Jen's! :)

Jennifer & Jennifae were both ever so nice to send me lovely items in the post during the week! Packs are always exciting like early holiday really so I thought I'd share what was inside!! :)


Jennifae sent me 6 full size everyday mineral products! I was so excited to see them in all their beauty. The colors are gorgeous, I love them all! Thank you again!

Jennifer sent me these lashes. They are so pretty and I can't wait to try them out! I'll have to do a review and FOTD on them soon! Thank you Jen!
 P.S. I know I have only been posting blog's on the weekends, I'm sorry to go from posting everyday to only twice a week :( It's been so busy at the office I hardly have time for anything. I leave early morning and come home late at night and just hit the bed for sleeping hours. I plan to figure out something soon. Perhaps putting my posts together prior to the week and posting them on the week days will be easier. I sure do miss you all! Hope everyone has a lovely Sunday! x

Currently...


Side Note: Grattis, Happy Birthday to my good friend Alex Lamb!

Reading: Lauren Conrad L.A. Candy (once again) & a few of my monthly subscriptions of Glamour & beauty sorts, nothing to heavy.

Buying: Cosmetics as always. I have such a long wish list and it always seems I get everything but whats on it? Why do I do that?

Listening to: EDM. I'm a Trance & Progressive House girl I don't listen to much else besides just that or classical tracks :)

Wearing: Layers. I love when the weather gets a bit chilly because that's when you can layer and have fun with textures patterns and colors! I rely on classic, simple items that don't require a lot of thought and have timeless style.

Drinking: Pumpkin Spice Soy Latte from Starbucks, one of my favorite things that this wonderful season brings :)

Watching: Desperate Housewives & Life Unexpected. I am not really a TV person I never watch it, I even watch these ep's online but they have kept my attention with every season given. Love my shows!

Loving: My Ryan. He is amazing. He has been there to support me in a lot of difficult times this past year and for that I love him with all my heart.

Anticipating: Time spent with my lover,everyday is such a buildup. The airport will definitely get the show of the classic "run jump & hug!"

Beginning:A new chapter now rather than waiting for the silly new year, it's never to late to start over!

How To: Cranberry Mask

Cranberries aren't just for Thanksgiving, they can be used year round in a relaxing facial. These facial treatments can be expensive at trendy spas, but you can make your own cranberry facial mask at home for just a fraction of the cost. The enzymes in cranberries act as exfoliants and will leave your skin healthy and silky smooth.

I use this when the season starts to get cold and my skin starts to get dry! At night I find it to work best for me, I like to apply heavy firming cream at night right after my mask of choice and this helps my face feel moisture packed and amazingly smooth. It also is an excellent exfoliant for my dry skin.Ive tried this out on the weekends early morning and I notice the glow it gives my skin and I just love it. I hope you all enjoy this delightful mask!


Ingredients:
6 Tablespoons Fresh Cranberries
1 Apple
1/2 Cup Water
(optional) Hint of Milk & Cotton Round


Mixture/ Application:
Boil the cranberries with the water for 10 minutes. Mash them up and let them cool. In the meantime, grate the apple and mix with the cooled cranberries.When mixture is done apply for 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water and follow with your moisturizer. Sometimes I even wipe away mask with a bit of milk on a cotton round :) Than I rinse all mixture off with warm water.
