no-screen week, easter baskets, and recovering from the flu

My weekly Tidbits:

After the horrible week previously we had with the stomach flu, we spent most of this week recovering from it. I think i'm finally getting back my appetite because I spent the past two days binge eating salsa(I eat a whole container in one sitting). I seriously turn into a baby when I get sick to my stomach. It's the worst.
Since we had to take a week off from work, we spent most of this week catching up. I spent days going through  fabric swatches, samples and booking appointments. My little business is finally taking off!

Easter is next Sunday so I went out Saturday buying the kids Easter baskets. My kids have everything, so I just filled their baskets with things they like, Jelly Belly's, crayons, bubbles, hot wheels, chocolate bunny's, flash cards/learning cards, and of course plastic eggs. I didn't go over board this year like I have in the past because like I said before my kids have everything.

Erik and I also tried something new this week, I call it no screen week. We stayed off our phones, didn't watch tv, and no computer or tablets(unless working). It was hard the first little bit, because I compulsively check my emails on my phone but, we ended up having a great week together. You don't realize how much quality time you miss out with your family by always having some sort of screen in your hand. It will defiantly be a new tradition in our house hold.

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead! And as always, thank you for reading!

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on sephora.com. I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.


The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:


Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
