December Ipsy bag

I am a little behind on this post- especially since I have already received my sneak peek at January. So I am getting it done TODAY.  New year so need a clean slate right??

I have already tried one product from my December Ipsy bag and loved it! Here it is…

Skinn Dimitri James Sugar lips polishing scrub for lips. It can be found here: Sugar Lips

Loved it! I can see if you overuse it if you are not careful…. it can make your lips sore so watch out… but it definitely helped clean off the dry skin on my lips. Loved it!

I also got the following and have not used these…

Julie nail color in pin up girl: Julie nail color

Peter Lamas Intensive repair hand cream (which must be good because it is sold out): Peter Lamas

Peony eyeshadow trio in gilded: Peony Eyeshadow

Peony power of love natural lipstick by Pacifica: Peony by Pacifica

This is it for December! Here is wishing everyone all the best in 2016!





November Ipsy bag

It’s here! My November Ipsy bag has arrived…

Here is the latest and greatest!

Smashbox full exposure mascara

Jesse’s girl eyeshadow primer

Be a Bombshell eyeliner in wild child

Hydra – activ three in one hero hydration cream

Tres-tique mini matte lip crayon in chile red

I cannot wait to try all the stuff! I would take more time to attach links but I am posting from my phone. Will have to do that later. On a side note…my October glam bag pumpkin mask was awesome! Would highly recommend. It had exfoliating scrubbers as part of the mask and when I used it with my Clairsonic my face felt very clean. I would recommend it if you are wanting a mask you can use a couple times a week.

I am currently working on my post about Nashville girls weekend and will get that posted as soon as possible. It’s been pretty crazy and when I got home Monday night I ended up having my car towed home from the airport due to a flat. More on that in my Nashville post!

Off to church in the morning and then an all day basketball tournament for Tyler in the afternoon. Maybe I can get into posting tomorrow night. If not have a great rest of the weekend!


October Ipsy glam bag

I’m so excited! I’m so excited! I love the day my glam bag arrives!

And to be honest I haven’t even tried on the products in my September bag. But I can tell you I’m trying this night cream I got back in August tonight, that tells you how far behind I am!

But truthfully, when you gut and redo your bathroom in the course in the summer most of these things get packed away in a box and you forget about them. This is what happened to me. So I will catch up, I promise!

This is what I got…. I have the link to each listed below. And I must note that the fact that I got a pumpkin mask in October probably excites me more than anything 😉

Update! I have been using this and think it is kind of “eh”. Don’t hate and don’t love. No clumping but if you prefer thicker mascara that makes your lashes fuller… then this is not for you. 

Meet Matte Hughes Liquid lipstick (I can’t wait to try this one~ it came in the color “committed” which looks very neutral Meet Matte Hughes

Emite professional tweezers (eek!) Emite

Eva-Nyc hair mask Eva-Nyc at Ulta

and the one I am MOST excited about simply because the word pumpkin is in the name…..

Update- LOVED this mask! I used it until i could not squeeze out another drop. Fragrant is mild and the mask was awesome in polishing skin. I would buy this again for sure.

I swear I will get to trying some of these things soon I simply forget I have them and like I said this summer we remodeled the bathroom and had all my samples packed away until everything was done. Time to get them all back out.

Have a great weekend! We are in Omaha this weekend for a basketball tournament for Tyler and his traveling team, so it is more bleacher time for this girl.



September Ipsy Bag

Better late than never right? It has been such a busy month with football games 3 times a week, full-time work, and trying to keep up with cooking and running around for my now family of FOUR kids plus a husband that I have not had much time to breathe. It’s Sunday and I spent the morning teaching Sunday school for my awesome class of 4th graders, then home for lunch for the fam, then we had our monthly 4H Clover kid meeting so I am finally sitting down to take a breath. Which is crazy because it is already almost 4pm. Paula Deen’s crock pot mac and cheese is in the crockpot, boys are at football, 4H is done and my bathtub is calling my name. But first I NEED to share my products…..
Admittedly, I haven’t tried most of these products yet. So I will have to come back to post reviews later. BUT I am so excited to share my Ipsy glam bag for September! Love the colors… specially since the trend is fall and browns/taupes which is completely me. PLUS my haircolor has been changed to my fall darb browns and reds for fall so this is perfect!

Here is what I got:

*Ipsy NYX 01 3 color shadow palette in No tans allowed – click here IpsyNYX

Update! I have been using this eye color for several months and love it! Stays on, minimal creasing and love the color! 

*Trust fund beauty nail polish is Elegantly Wasted- click here Trust fund beauty

*Eau Thermale Ave’ne Masque- click here Lau Thermale

*JCats Beauty #Makeup of the day Slide on pencil in Bronze- click here Jcat Beauty

I also got a Crown shadow/crease duet brush that I desperately needed as my old one is getting pretty flat. I cannot wait to try these all and get a report back….

So there you have it- my products for the month. Now that my bathtub is calling my name, I think I may slap the mask on and finally get a chance to try some of these out. Has anyone else used these and what did you think? Anyone else have the same in their Ipsy bag?

Have a great rest of your Sunday!
