Hello y’all. I can’t believe it is February already. This year will go by fast, I can already tell. A new month means a new blog on what I loved. Below are 5 things that got me through the month of January. Let me know what items you loved last month. I would love to hear from you guys. Muah, Love Y’all!
I love this mascara. It really gets in between those lashes and coats them to perfection. I used to use a different mascara every time I saw a new one come out. I would jump from Maybelline to Cover Girl, and then to Rimmel London. I finally found this gem when a YouTuber mentioned it was her favorite mascara. I thought, hummm…let me try this. So I bought it and the first time I used it, I was in love. If you look at the picture, there are little bristles that coat every lash. The formula that they use makes your lashes long; like super long. The key to this mascara is that you need to coat your lashes at least twice and wait for a minute or two between each coat. You can get this at any drugstore, but I would recommend Ulta. They usually have a sale.Buy Here
We all know I have some acne issues. At least while I am on my hunt for clearer skin, you guys get to know what works and what doesn’t. I wasn’t really into the whole facial brush craze. I thought washing your face with your hands was good enough, and then YouTube came around. I saw this and wanted to try it out. After I started using this brush, my face felt smooth and clean. I can really tell the difference when I don’t use it. I will wake up the next morning and my face is rough and just not feeling its best. I use mine at night before I go to bed, and then finish with curology. It comes with a cleansing brush, exfoliating brush, and a silicone brush. I use the cleansing brush every night and the exfoliating brush once a week. You can find it here.
This is by far my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. I discovered Brown Sugar and Fig in high school when I was 17. It was a part of their signature scents along with sweet pea, and cucumber melon. A few years ago, they discontinued this scent and you could only get it during their semi-annual sale. It is still a “retired scent” as they call it, but you can get it all year round on their website. This lotion has a sweet and fruity smell. It doesn’t really remind me of anything so I can’t compare it for you, but if you don’t mind sweet smells then you will love this lotion. I use other scents Bath and Body Works has, but I always come back to this one. You can find it on their website here.
This product right here is a life saver. It is the L’oreal Sleek It heat spray. Almost two years ago I did a big chop after my wedding because my hair was through. I had natural hair but I would straighten it every day and did not use anything to protect my hair. My curls were stringy and barely holding on. So after I big chopped I vowed to keep my beautiful curls healthy. I normally use Tresemme’s heat protectant, but I bought this one day because it was cheaper. I use both, but I do like this one better. It smells good and I feel like it keeps my hair straighter longer. I use this before I blowdry and again before I flat iron. You can find this at Target or Walmart, but I buy all my beauty and hair products from Ulta. Buy Here
Ok, so you know I have to end with knowledge. Naw, but I am reading this right now. This is on my favorites list because I forgot how much I need this book. Now do not let the name fool you. You are not going to read this book and get rich. This book teaches you the principles that you need to change your mindset to become successful. A lot of people think that money or success is luck or hard work. Now hard work is important but if you do not have the right mindset you will continue to chase success and never get it. Or luck. Just think about the people that win the lottery. You will have someone win 60 million dollars and three years later they lost it all. Why is that? It is because they did not have the principles or the mindset to keep or grow that money. I am not going to get all into this, but if you are looking to learn the principles you need to gain success, I would read this book. Buy Here
