Too Faced Makeup Haul


Hello, Welcome! I had a very interesting day today. I have been waiting for a month for this day to come! Today my local Ulta Beauty store had Too Faced makeup artist doing makeup sesh and where you buy a Too Faced product you get a free gift that was a Too Faced product. I’m a huge fan of Too Faced products, actually, it is my number one makeup brand I use.

I first got into Too Faced when I was in junior high school and always loved it but as I got older I tried other brands but always end up going back to Too Faced. With that being said I was very stoked for today and here are all my Too Faced goodies I was able to get my hands on today.

Too Faced Hangover Face Primer

This is the all-time best face primer. This Hangover Face Primer is infused with coconut water, probiotic-based ingredient, and Skin Revivers.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

I am new to using this foundation. Today when getting my makeup done I couldn’t believe the results afterward. I thought there was hardly anything on my face. When I use foundation I really put it on my face for full coverage and this foundation does it for me without having to use a lot of product and it’s oil free!. This foundation is infused with coconut Water, Alpine Rose which helps empower skin’s health, and Hyaluronic Acid which gives a smoother more youthful appearance. But for me when it comes to my foundation what I look for is Hydration, and with this brand, they infused the product with coconut water so that’s a win-win for me!

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer 

Just like Born This Way foundation with the same infused ingredients and being oil free, this is a magic wand for me. Made a huge difference on my face.

Too Faced Tutti Frutti It’s Bananas Brightening Setting Powder

The moment I been waiting for! I have been wanting to get my hands on this since it came out. Not only does it smell like bananas but the package itself and everything about this I love. I’m a HUGE fan of bananas, bananas socks, banana ice cream, you get it!

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Matte Bronzer

This makes you want to eat this! Smells just like chocolate. I just started to get into bronzer and so far so good. I like how it sits on the face and it gives a natural look.

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Pressed Powder

I was told by the makeup artist to try this one out rather than the original one I picked out and we tested this bad boy on my face and the results are pretty good.

Being 16 Weeks Pregnant Update

Hello, Welcome! Today is my 16-weeks pregnant update. A few things to mention with you all, I am pregnant with my first child with my boyfriend of 10 years. We are expecting a baby girl who will be here on June 22 this summer. I’m over here taking notes and reading tons of information as I have no idea what to expect. One thing I do know is that I’m going to be a mother and there is nothing I can express truly how excited I am to have a mini-me taking over the household.



Every Saturday when I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is walk over to my bookshelf and grab my book called Your Pregnancy Week By Week. Every Saturday is adding another week to my pregnancy, therefore, I sit down with a glass of milk and start reading the new week that I am and what to expect.

Trust me, if you are a new mother to be this book is everything. I was originally Googling everything I felt and experience and doing that just scared me, the things I was reading was a little crazy and making me nervous for no reason when there is nothing wrong in the first place.


With that being said I feel a lot better once I hit the second trimester. I have tons more energy now and enjoy waking up early in the morning and going to bed early at night. I was never the one to get up early in the morning but ever since I am pregnant I have this wonderful sleep schedule right now (Been told not to get used to it, once the baby is here that will be all messed up)

Few things I noticed have changed and one of them is my baby bump. Of course, it’s getting bigger but I mean I’m having a bit of a hard time when I put some pants on or pick something up from the floor the belly is starting to get in the way meaning that the belly is no more squishy like feeling and more solid and I feel something like the baby is sitting on my bladder maybe? I don’t know but it’s a new feeling that I’m experiencing this week.

Another thing that is new this week is I’m starting to break out on my jawline and under my chin. I have a routine where I wash my face morning and night but from my reading, this is totally normal for pregnant women to experience, just a bummer!

Food Cravings for this week!

  • Cinnabon
  • Kettle popcorn
  • Mashed Potatoes


That’s a wrap! Thank you all! Catch my pregnancy update post every Wednesday!



Holly Black The Wicked King released Date Today

img_0234 (1)

I have been looking forward to this day for many many months after I read The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. Today was the released day for The Wicked King by Holly Black which is the second book to The Folk Of The Air series.


Last year I tried to get an ARC for this lovely gem and was unfortunate to get one. I heard so much and how wonderful this book is from the lucky ones that received an ARC. I was definitely the one counting down the days and even woke up early to head to my local Barnes And Noble to get my copy today, and trust me I gave them a call ahead of time to put it on hold for me that I will be there first thing in the morning to pick it up.

Now that I finally have my hands on this wonderful book, tonight is all about “Me Time!” Hot bath, Hot tea, and cuddles with my furbaby on my fluffy bed.

But before I can get that “Me Time” I need to take a trip to the mall to get a Cinnabon! Pregnancy cravings are little nuts right now.

Let me break down the news step by step and save the biggest news for last.

The first news to share with you all is that I am going to be sharing more of my interest with the world. I would like everyone to get an insight look into my life I guess you can say.

What are those three things you may ask that are being added to this blog… Well, I’ll tell you the first two and save the third one for last. I will be adding Fashion and Beauty, I would like to share my daily routines with you all and also learn from others on tricks and tips with their daily routine.

Some other news I would like to share is that my Etsy shop will also be getting an upgrade with more book sleeves that I am working on as of right now with new print so stay tuned and I will keep you all posted.

I will be working on making videos and having a Youtube channel also. I am still learning on how to edit the videos. If anyone has helpful tips that would be greatly appreciated.

And for the biggest news, I would like to share is the reason for my absence was I found out that I will be expecting my first child this year with my boyfriend of 10 years. We are very excited and looking forward to this journey as new parents. So the final interest I would be adding to this blog will be Motherhood, my journey as a new mother and my experiences.
