100 Followers!!

Ok. I realize that to some 100 followers might not seem like that big of a deal. To me, it’s AMAZING! I have 100 followers!! Like.. whaaat??! You guys, thank you so so much from the bottom of my beauty blended heart. You have no idea what this means to me. If it weren’t for my loyal readers and all your lovely comments, I’d have very little motivation to keep up with this. Maybe I don’t have the most perfect winged liner or have the knack of contouring yet (ugh.. so hard) but I truly love beauty and am so happy you guys love it enough to follow my sporadic postings, musings, reblogs and reviews. You truly make my heart sing. *cue corny violin music*

Thank you my lovelies!! Xoxox!

Welp!

Well it has been some crazy few weeks…

My son graduated Kindergarten last Friday. No.. I didn’t cry. I was very proud of myself, actually. They made little paper caps to wear and even had a red carpet to walk down after the principal said their name. Still didn’t cry. Not even when they sang their four little songs they had been rehearsing for weeks…

It wasn’t until we got home when I opened up this beautiful scrapbook his teacher had made with all the artwork and projects he had made throughout the year… the very last page was a “diploma” and a photo of him wearing a red cap and gown. Guys, I lost it!! It was the sweetest, most beautiful photo I had ever seen of my child. His smile was adorable and gosh… guys!! I’m the mother of a kindy graduate now!! Where did my little boy go that I labored over 48 hours to birth?

It’s crazy how time goes by so quickly at some moments and seems so slow the next. I can’t wait to see what the next school year brings!!

Ruminating Thoughts

It’s come to my attention lately that I’ve lost a few readers in my blogging journey. It always stings a little. I try and bring original content and reblog posts that I think have meaning towards what my blog is all about. But as with all things in life, you can’t please everyone. I’m a single mom, I’ve got a full-time job, and I’m not on here updating everyday because of that. But that’s ok. I can’t beat myself up about taking care of my family. Blogging is fun and it’s something I am passionate about. Yet I totally understand that not everyone is here for the same reasons. I am happy with all my loyal readers and I am so blessed that you’ve chosen to follow my blog and post comments when you feel like it.

So while it’s always sad to see some readers go; I know that these things happen. Thank you to all the readers who HAVE stuck around. Your loyalty and commentary is what keeps me going with this endeavor. Thank you thank you thank you lovelies from the bottom of my lipstick stained heart. =D

Product Review: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask

I recently picked up this Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask at I think Target for like $1 (after coupons, score!) Here are my honest feelings about the product. This is not a paid review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

52593023

At first, I was super excited to try this. I’m a sucker for masks (I’ve got a billion in my bathroom cupboard) and with my coupon I knew I had to grab it. I’m generally a fan of Neutrogena products. I remember my stepmom using their basic facewash growing up and I was a big fan. Since my skin is also super dry I figured the added hydration benefits would be great for my skin.

Unfortunately, this mask didn’t cut it for me. The packaging was cute (favorite color is blue) and the price was right but it just.. didn’t work for me. I felt the mask didn’t stick on the skin well like other sheet/gel masks do. I constantly had to reapply the bottom half to stay on my skin.

The smell was pleasant enough but I’m pretty sure the fragrance irritated my skin. When I woke up this morning, my cheeks were red and blotchy and I’ve got little raised bumps on my cheekbones. =(

I couldn’t even leave it on my skin for the full 15 minutes due to it’s constantly falling off and finally just getting sick of the damn thing and taking it off.

Not sure why this mask was so difficult compared to other one but I don’t think I’d repurchase this again, even if a coupon made it nearly free.

Now, don’t necessarily let this deter you from trying it out. I’m a big believer in trying products yourself because reviews are just guidelines. They aren’t the end-all, be-all of anything. Just because this mask didn’t work for me DOESN”T mean it can’t work for you.

If you’ve tried this mask, let me know how your skin reacted to it. What were your thoughts?

Packaging: 5/5

Price: 4/5

Easy to Use: 2/5 (stop falling off my skin damnit!)

Skin Reactions: 1/5 (ouch to red bumps and blotchy skin)

Scent: 4/5

Would Purchase Again?: No

Stay lovely!
