Kate Somerville Mask

I have tried a lot of Kate Somerville products and normally love them. This Exfoliate mask is a great texture, color, smell and always love the packaging. However I didn’t have the best experience with this mask.

When I put the mask on the consistency was great, it was just the right thickness and went on easy and lathered well. After the instructed 30 seconds of rubbing in you let it sit for 2 minutes. Well, that is when the burn set in and boy did it burn. I could barely stand it but I thought maybe it was just the first time so I did the 2 minutes and rinsed off. My face wasn’t red or anything like that, the results were great. My skin was smooth and radiant.

It was recommended to do 2-3 times per week so the second time I followed the instructions and I couldn’t make it through the 2 minutes because the sting/burn was just too much for me to handle. Again no red skin I felt like they were good results again.

Over all this just doesn’t work well for me. I don’t want burning from a face mask even if I get good results. It may work for your skin type but not for me.

The Pub McKinney

The Pub McKinney was the first restaurant/bar we ventured out to visit. It is located in Historic Downtown McKinney. The venue offers a great atmosphere, plenty of seating, pool tables & games, full bar (specializing in Whiskey), craft beer and good food. There was a great outdoor seating area, it was cold the night we were there but we both commented it was a great space. I can’t wait to go back in some nicer weather.

 

We visited for an evening out for drinks and appetizers. The service was great, drinks good and the food was yummy. It was a great first stop in the area to see a new place and explore. This will definitely be one of the stops we take visitors and head to for a date night. Are you ready to go with us?

FabFitFun

You guys know I love my FabFitFun boxes! They introduce me to some amazing products that I would not find other wise. The Spring 2018 box was no different!

The Rachel Pally clutch is the perfect pop of color for any outfit. I love to wear black, grey and white so my accessories are my opportunity to be fun. This clutch is reversible, soft, large enough to carry everything you need and beautiful. The protective storage bag is great to keep it in perfect condition for year and years of use.

The Free People eye mask is so relaxing. I have never used a sleep mask before but it was such a change I love using it now. It is thick and full of cushion, the inside is silky smooth and the added amount of pressure helps me fall asleep fast.

I enjoy burning candles in my house year round, the smells and style make my house more homey. This candle was beautiful to display in the gold container. I didn’t get much sent out of it but I have an open floor plan and I think if I paired it with a matching one it would have been perfect. It is made of all natural ingredients too so there aren’t chemicals just floating up in your home.

You know I love a good workout, everyday, so this roller is perfect for relieving the muscle pain. The handles make it easy to use anywhere on your body. I use it mostly on my legs because I work them hard and this really helps to reduce the pain and restore my muscles. If you work out regularly you need one!

I have never used a lip mask before so I was excited to try these out. They are collagen infused for moisture and plumping. I would pop these on after my evening shower, my husband thought they looked terrible, but they worked! My lips felt soft and smooth after wearing. I am not sure if they plumped them up but I used them more for the moisture benefit anyway.

The Dermelect Cosmeceuticals nail polish was one of my favorites from the box. I bite my nails, terrible habit, and they are weak and rigid. This polish filled them in and gave a subtle pink shine so they looked great too. I am wearing it right now on my fingers and toes. I highly recommend this for any nails that need some help.

This box also had the ISH pallet in it. I love the variety of colors, they went on smooth and the consistency is perfect for mixing to get some additional personalized colors. The small Love bracelet is the perfect addition to my jewelry collection. I love smaller pieces I can mix together with others and yellow gold is my favorite.

My summer box is on it’s way and I can’t wait to share it with you. If you have questions about where to get these products or need additional information about them comment or message. I will post links for each product soon!

Face Mask

I am always trying new skin products because I really haven’t found something I like to use all the time. I had a go to brand in high school but things have changed from then so I like to try news ones.

The Whish Renewing mud Mask was something I started using a few weeks ago and I can see a difference. It is so quick to use and the benefits are seen right away. Simply apply a think layer to your face, avoiding eyes, nose and mouth, leave on for 15 seconds the first time building up to 2 minutes. Then wipe off with a wash cloth in a circular motion for exfoliating. Done! (use 1-2 times a week) It gently exfoliates and eliminates dead skin revealing smoother more even skin.

I really like it because it is paraben free, sulfate free, phthalate free, DEA & TEA free and petrochemical free, naturally sourced and organic ingredients!

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Birds Eye Steamfresh

My sister recommended the Protein Blend Birds Eye Steamfresh and boy was she right. It is quick and delicious. PLUS packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.

It’s in the freezer section of your local grocery store. Only 4 1/2 minutes in the microwave and you have a perfect side dish or meal on it’s own. I grilled some chicken to add to mine for a perfect quick week night meal.

Not all processed foods are bad, you just need to read the label and make sure what is in the package is real food. Not just chemicals. Try this out and let me know what you think, it’s going to be in my freezer all the time.

Ningxia Red

I hadn’t heard of Ningxia Red until I began using Essential Oils a few weeks ago. (I will talk about the oils in a future post) I was very interested in learning more about his berry that makes the drink.

 

 

It is made of wolf-berry, pomegranate, blueberry and other super foods. **Fun fact there are more than 80 species of wolf-berry and each holds a different amount of antioxidants and nutritional value**

Benefits of the Wolf-Berry

  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin B
  • Antioxidants

So what makes this little shot of juice even better than just this singular berry….

  • Whole food source of protein, vitamins, minerals & fiber
  • Essential oils of yuzu, lemon, tangerine & orange
  • Natural antioxidants
  • Highest levels of naturally occurring, age defying S-ORAC activity. Studies have shown that S-ORAC supports cardiovascular health, supports healthy immune function and supports healthy eye function
  • Natural detoxing
  • Natural form of energy

With all of this good stuff, the main question is how does it taste? I was hesitant the first time I drank it because I was worried about the taste, but it was delicious! I had no problem drinking it down in no time. These little packets are great because it is pre-packaged in the 2oz per day that you should drink. However you can buy a large bottle as well. Some people drink it just on it’s own or mix it into their bottle of water for an infused water flavor.

Try it and let me now what you think.
