It’ll be hard to find someone as passionate about pampering yourself as ME. I’m telling you, the amount of bubble baths I’ve taken, facials I’ve left on all day, and massages I’ve scammed my way into you would NOT believe. And now I’m here to give you a few tips! Normally I try to avoid shopping at Target (I end up wasting all my money on things I don’t need), but I’ve found a new reason to go there! THE. FACE. MASKS. Guys. They’re $2 at the VERY most. So of course, I couldn’t afford not to buy at least 50 (it’s a bargain, okay?!). There are a few different versions of face masks so I took the liberty of picking out a few of each kind and trying them out to review for you guys. I’ll also be reviewing the Lush mask I got to compare. So let the pampering begin:
These Target facials are SUPER refreshing and I’m addicted. They’re so inexpensive and there’s always a new fun “flavor” (I’m not sure what to call it) to try.
There are also different types of masks. These include peel-off, coffee scrub, and paper masks (which looks like a tortilla that has holes for your mouth and eyes). I like them all but wouldn’t recommend any peel-off masks to people with sensitive skin, stick to the mud masks you can rinse off with warm water after 20 minutes. Personally, those are my favorite anyway, and it’s what I’m using in the pictures below.
Like I said, I love these all & love that they make it so much easier to pamper yourself without cleaning your wallet out.
I personally love all LUSH products. They’re so aesthetically pleasing and they all smell incredible. I recently got three things that I’m dying over, which I’ll show below, but I’ll mainly be talking about the facial.
Most of their facials are fresh, so they have to be refrigerated. This can be kind of weird keeping my beauty products where my family keeps the food, but I really like that it’s cool and refreshing, and the ingredients really are fresh!
They all smell delicious, but I personally like minty or fruity flavors. I’m not crazy about coffee scrubs or earthy scents because a huge part of the “treat yo ‘self” facial aspect is in the smell for me. I’ll link the pictures below so you can get a feel for the prices for each product. The only reason I don’t constantly use LUSH products is because it can add up pretty quickly.
Hi everyone! I just came back home from my senior retreat, which was so special. I’m definitely not one to get sentimental about high school, but these people I’ve grown with these past four years have played such a defining part in my life. I feel truly happy with who I am going in to college and I owe it to these people. We also happened to have the most gorgeous view of the mountains, so we took some last minute pictures. The last few years have had their ups and downs, but I feel stronger with the Lord behind me. These retreats always remind me that He is holding my hand every step of the way and that He loves me no matter what. Our retreat theme was Abide, so here’s a Bible verse that carried me throughout the weekend, and a song that I’m loving right now:
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me.”
And the song I’m still obsessed with… Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson
Hello my beautiful friends! Recently, one of my favorite YouTubers, Danielle Marie, went to Palm Beach for a Lilly Pultizer photoshoot. Watching her Snapchat and Instagram stories, it made me fall in love with Lilly Pulitzer all over again. Of course I always like it, but I almost don’t wear any Lilly in the winter, because it’s all so bright and more summer-based. I went the the website (being without a store here 🙁 — But stay tuned!!! A different preppy store is popping up in Denver and I’ll have a post coming out about it soon!) and looked at the new Spring line. There are SO many cute things, but I limited myself to six. I can’t wait until the warmer weather rolls around so I can start rocking some of these! I also just got the CUTEST Lilly jumpsuit the other day, so I’m excited to share with you guys how I accessorize that! I hope you guys enjoy my little comments on each of these and let me know in the comments whether you have a favorite brand that I should check out. Click on any of the pictures to go to the website and see more details!
Also, if you don’t know who Danielle Marie is, she’s a YouTuber who is my age but extremely successful and motivated and inspirational! She just posted this on Instagram and inspires me daily so go check her out! Have a great weekend and thank you guys again for taking the time to read what I write, it truly amazes me anyone would actually come onto my website and read my words. I am so grateful for you all and hope to add a little positivity and make your day a little better every time you come here!
P.S. I also made a Bloglovin’ account! It’s a cool platform full of blog posts, and I’m obsessed so far. If you guys want to help me out and give me a follow on there that’d be awesome! Thanks and love you guys 🙂 !
Hello my beautiful friends! My school has a senior retreat this weekend, and while this may not be out-of-a-tent camping, we are in the straight wilderness and I need to pack as though I’m going camping… Just without the tent and fire starter. Since it’s been unseasonably warm (*trying not to think about global warming while I enjoy the sun*) I thought some of you guys may be thinking of taking your adventures back outside, and come out of hibernation. Regardless, we will be in the great Rocky Mountains and I’m going to need to be prepared for cold Colorado weather & impromptu adventures. I was looking through my older pictures and came across some pictures from our school retreat last year. So here’s a little throwback, and then just scroll down for the packing list!
P.S. To read about the junior retreat last year, just click on this first picture!
And leaving you with that Wizards of Waverly Place throwback, let’s start packing:
To all my friends who are going camping (or possibly going on this retreat, HAAAAAYY GURL), I hope this helped a little bit. I don’t like to pack too much, so this list is pretty simple. I’ll mostly be wearing sweatshirts and leggings or sweats, but I tried to make it more interesting and for a longer time in case any of you are thinking about camping as the weather is warming up. Have a great weekend and wish me luck on the retreat!
