WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS 2017


 I know its been a few days since i have posted. I wanted to take a few days after the holidays to just relax.
I am going to share with you what i got for christmas and then next week i will start the new year by posting my favorites for the year 2017.

So lets get started with what i got for christmas shall we.
First off, let me just say that this is not a lot but i love everything that i got.




And lets not forget that the most important thing at christmas time is just spending time with family.



 Here is the first thing, its a aminal print travel case. I will be using this bag when i travel to store my makeup in. I love this.
 I  also got this nice warm coat. It is actually perfect since we have been having a very cold spell this week and im talking about temps in the single digits and wind chills below 0.
 How cute are the slippers? I love them. They are so warm and nice to just come after working all day and put these  babies on. They also have memory foam as well which makes them really nice after a full day of working on your feet.
 I also got a gift card for 50 dollars and you will see what i got at the end
 The above photo and below photo are both for my christmas village. I have been putting up a christmas village for several years. Last year i didn't get the village put up because of being sick and i didn't get it up this year either just because i wasn't really feeling putting it up this year but , next year im putting it up and including this two in them. I am also going to try to start getting at least one a year to go with my village.

 The above photo and below photo are both together. It is this cute set that includes this shower gel, shower poof, spa wrap and hair turban. And can we talk about the purple glitter box. I am going to hang on to the box and reuse this for something else. Its too cute not to reuse.

 I got this cute set from Hask. It includes the coconut oil shampoo , conditioner, deep conditioning pack, hair oil and dry shampoo. I have use the shampoo, conditioner and the hair oil and i love them. If you love coconut oil, then this does not disappoint at all.












 With my give card, i headed to target and picked up some goodies from Pixi beauty
I got the glow tonic, and the rose oil blend


 This is the side of the rose oil blend and some info about the different oils that are in this. So far im loving this.

Also i plan on getting the Sonia Kashuk undetectable creme bronzer ,, The target i went to in springfield did not have this but the one in branson does, so i will be heading there on saturday to get that.


Comment below and let me know what you got for christmas this year.

WEEKLY FAVORITES


Today its time for my weekly favorites. I have a mix of american products as well as some korean products and some skincare as well as makeup and hair products so lets get started and see what are my favorites for this week

ETUDE HOUSE FACE BLUR--
 This lightweight cream provides multi-blurring effects for instantly refined and smooth skin, Skin's texture is smoothed; pores minimized and complexion brightened. This really does provide the perfect base for any foundation. I love this.

PONY EFFECT COLOR CORRECTOR MASTER PALETTE--
 Pony Effect's rainbow palette addresses every skin tone imperfection and corrects, conceals, and highlights your skin to natural, even perfection. Its 6 creamy colors deliver buildable coverage that liven up your face and sweep away the appearance of under eye circles, pimples, dullness, redness, and hyperpigmentation.
Peach: neutralizes brown-toned under eye circles
Salmon: nixes blue-toned under eye circles
Papaya: neutralizes dark green and blue-toned under eye circles
Pistachio: conceals redness
Lavender: brightens sallow, dull skin
White: blends moisture into colors to brighten the skin tone

ORIBE  MATTE WAVES TEXTURE LOTION
This is a light lotion formula that encourages salt spray waves and texture. I love that after my shower, i apply this to my damp hair and let it dry and it creates the perfect beachy waves and doesn't leave my hair dry at all. This came in the december allure beauty box

PIXI GLOW TONIC
  This exfoliates and purifies the skin with Glycolic Acid. Ginseng improves circulation and energizes. Aloe vera soothes and hydrates and this refines the appearance of pores.
 It  gently accelerates cell renewal to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion, as well as balances, heals and soothes for radiant, healthier looking skin. The best part is that this is alcohol free. I got this in the 12 days of beauty advent calendar and i am getting the full size of this. I love this.



DHC CLEANSING OIL
This cleansing oil is great at removing my makeup and starting the cleansing products. I use a small amount which this really goes a long way. I then add water and it creates a  milky, vitamin-rich emulsion. This came in the allure beauty box for november

 ASTA STEMCELL GEL CREAM
This special formula builds and restores the skin's natural firmness and elasticity from the inside out. It helps to reduce dryness and rough skin by replenishing and re-balancing your skin to its original, healthy state.
Astaxanthin, the main ingredient is a powerful beta-carotenoid antioxidant found in certain plants and animals (such as salmon, krill, shrimp, microalgae). This is combined with Camellia Sinensis Callus Culture Extract, the extract of cultured stem cells from Green Tea, to restore and improve skin's overall health. Specifically, these ingredients along with Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, and Collagen, protect skin from external damage, repair the skin barrier, increase elasticity, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The Graymelin Asta Stem Cell Gel Cream has a gel consistency which is light and absorbs quickly to moisturize the skin without feeling sticky. Developed to be used right after the cleansing step without feeling too heavy. (It is especially recommended during dry and cold winter months.) Im loving this!!

LYP GODDESS LIP BALM-- http://go.magik.ly/ml/8fxb/---
This is infused with real 24 karat gold flakes. It is strawberry scented and feels so good on the lips. This time of year, we need to make sure to remember to not forget our lips and always keep this moisturized and this really delivers.
