Mommy's Day, Giveaway Winner and 20 Questions

Weekly Tidbits:



Happy Mother's Day to all the mommy's, grandma's, step mom's, and mother's to be! I hope all of you are enjoying the day with your favorite women. Mother's are so special to each and every one, shouldn't we all show our mom's more appreciation every day of the year instead of only doing it on mother's day? 
Yesterday I went to my hometown and spent some time with my mom for mother's day.  I wish I could see her more often and I wish she lived closer.  Today, for mother's day I am spending the day with my children and husband. My husband always makes mother's day extra special for me!

I don't have a much exciting news this week. On Thursday I announced the winner of my first giveaway, Maria Cartera. Maria won the chocolate bar palette from Too Faced cosmetics. I will be doing more giveaways in the future, as I get more followers so stay tuned!


I have more posts that I am excited about this week. I will be continuing the designer series and I am going to be giving some style tips. 

I hope everyone has a fabulous week and as always thanks for reading!

I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is.

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…
