Hello May

Weekly Tidbits:

Happy May! Is it just me or is this year already going by fast? 
May is one of my favorite months. My son Jameson turns 2 on May 30th, my grandfathers birthday is May 21st and Mother's Day is the 11th.  May weather is the best and I love to see the beautiful flowers and nature come alive in May. 

Monday I received a coupon in the mail from Bath and Body Works, for a free 3 wick candle($22.50 value). Honestly, I'm not a fan of Bath and Body(who wants to smell like baked cookies?) but I couldn't turn down this offer. So that afternoon I headed to the mall and picked out the Watermelon Lemonade scent and I loved it! I still don't like their body products but I will  defiantly give their home scents a thumbs up!

Remember to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. I'm giving away the Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette by Too Faced Cosmetics.  It's not too late to enter, the last day is this Thursday, May 8th at 12:00 pm. Full description and rules here.

Is it just me, or is everyone 20 something who shops at Sephora a makeup artist now? Sure, some of those YouTube ladies are very talented makeup artists but i've seen some that were kinda iffy. Watch this YouTube parody of makeup tutorials and you will never watch another tutorial the same again. I literally laughed my butt off through the whole video.

Have a wonderful week and as always thanks for reading!

So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on 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 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…
