Que bella detoxifying dead sea mud mask review

As I was casually walking up and down all the aisles of Target Health and Beauty section (like I always do) I caught glimpse of these little packets and the detoxifying dead sea mask one really captured my interest so I bought it. These packets range from 1.97-2.50 each and they have several different kinds. It's 80% natural ingredients but read over the ingredients thoroughly if you have any allergies. 

I didn't want to give my kids nightmares so I waited to give it a go till after they went to bed. It says to cleanse your face with warm water then apply the mask and enjoy for up to 15 minutes. So I did just that and it was a very pleasant experience. The mask was easy to apply, did not need to massage the packet in my hands before opening and it goes on with a light blue hue. It felt kind of cool on my face which was really nice and it smells good too. It did not irritate my skin at all and I had a lot left so I put it in a ziplock baggie and have used it a couple more times with plenty left for a couple more! The mask dried nicely and didn't harden to the point where I couldn't move my face which was really nice. I really liked how refreshed and smooth my face looked after I rinsed it all off.  I would definitely buy this again.

I did buy another packet from the same line but I have not had a chance to give it a try yet but I will for sure make a review for when I do.

Glam bag review for Ipsy's August 2013 bag.

I received my Ipsy glam bag yesterday!! Although I am not as excited this time around as I was last month.

"Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month." 

I did not get a chance to do my glam room update because I have been spending all my time on Pinterest getting my family binder finished (I will post about it some other time when I am satisfied with it). But I already knew what I was getting even though I received my glam bag the same day. But anyways onto the goodies!!

My everyday Beauty must haves

Alright so I do try on and wear a lot of different makeup. I have recently made makeup purchases and have noticed that I tend to gravitate towards certain products more frequently then most. I made a little collage in picmokey (awesome site BTW), now let me say that I am not the greatest at creating collages online I am more of a hands on type of girl but I did my best and since I downloaded a bunch of free scrapbook kits I fully intend to experiment and get creative so I am not posting dull, plain or goofy looking collages.

DYI beauty

I wanted to share some of my favorite DYI beauty products that I have found on Pinterest. 

1) Three DIY Lip Scrub Recipes For Super Kissable Lips

Basic Lip Scrub

1 teaspoon of white sugar
few drops of olive oil
mix, scrub, exfoliate, enjoy!

Honey Kisses Lip Scrub

1 tablespoon of white sugar
1 tablespoon of raw honey
few drops of vanilla extract.
Mix, let it sit on your lips for about 15 minutes, scrub away, enjoy!

Coconut Kisses Lip Scrub

1 tablespoon of brown sugar
two teaspoons of coconut oil
1 teaspoon of honey
Mix, scrub, enjoy!
If you decide to make any of these scrubs, chances are you will have plenty left over so just store it in a little airtight container and pop it in the fridge. Enjoy!

Are you wearing the correct bra?

I came across this on my facebook news feed and it was pretty much mind blowing. Now let me say, I use to work at Lane Bryant and have fitted many women with a bra but as it turns out I was not correctly trained on how to fit a bra. It makes me kind of sad that I failed so many women and fit them with a new bra that still didn't fit them correctly. Anyways I am still trying to locate my tape measure in order to check my proper measurements but I know for a fact that when I was last measured at Victoria Secret it was incorrect. None of the bras that I tried on fit comfortably and everything was hanging out on the sides. I thankfully have not had any problems with my back but that doesn't mean it's not going to happen if I don't change my bra wearing ways. So let me share with you a repost of the blog (The writer of the blog actually encouraged people to reblog it) I don't have tumbler though so I will include a link to the original blog post and I am giving her full credit for this. I just had to share it.

DO IT NOW: Guide to Proper Bra Fit and Measuring because Victoria Secret and La Senza and whatever are full of shit and you are definitely wearing the wrong size ok? ok
Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting bra can fix back, shoulder, and neck pain, along with breast soreness - and it can help you look 10lbs lighter, and your breasts a hell of a lot perkier. This guide also works for proper-sized bikinis and bathing suits (many online stores linked to below sell both- sometimes for as low as 10$!)
Don’t just like this, REBLOG IT. EVERYBODY WITH BOOBS DESERVES A PROPER FIT. Even if you don’t wear bras yourself, spread it around to tumblr or with your friends or family.
Grab a soft tape measurer (use inches) and get nekkid - don’t wear a bra or shirt please, you don’t wear a bra or shirt underneath your bra, do you? This part is fast and easy, and will help you find your ‘Starting Point’ bra size - you may not end up in this exact size, but it will get you in the right ballpark.

Ipsy Sneak Peek *UPDATED*

It's a new month and you know what that means? August Ipsy glam bag sneak peeks!! Ipsy starts posting sneak peeks at the start of the month but this time they started one day early which is fine by me. Stay tuned to see glam bag speculations and what also awesome about this month is...........

It's my birthday month!!!! I am really excited to see what Ipsy has in store for this months glam bag. I will be updating this post as often as they post a new sneak peek. 

SNEAK PEEK #1  Pro-lips at your fingertips from start to finish with one of these awesome August Glam Bag items.

Urban Decay lipstick. I really like Urban Decay products but I am not a fan of lipstick and I when I did my beauty profile quiz I did not check this box because I do not want any. So I guess my alternative "OR" product is going to be chap stick/lip balm. Alright so it appears that subscribers will either receive the Urban Decay Revolution lipstick (Retails for $22) OR the NOYA beauty Lip Balm (Retails for $3.99) in vanilla or cherry.
