“Mineral Mud Mask, twice a week for clear skin” — that’s exactly what my esthetician told me and it’s truly been working. I have acne prone skin, sadly and it’s my job to find ways to make it easier on me and my skin. I recently received the Mineral Mud Clay Mask from Vivo Per Lei and I’m in love!
I love a mask that goes on thick, I feel like it’s able to dissolve impurities easier and faster as well as wash away the dirt inside my pores. I purchased a foundation brush to use for applying my face masks and it’s helped me not waste so much product as well as a cleaner application!
How To Use: Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin. Apply all over face and neck, avoiding eyes, mouth and hairline. Allow 15-20 minutes to completely dry before massaging warm water onto mask to loosen. Rinse clean with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, use once to twice weekly.
It’s under $20! To learn more and to purchase click HERE
“Vivo Mineral Mud Clay Mask helps to transform a dull, congested or troubled complexion to reveal refreshed radiance. Combining the powerfully detoxifying benefits of Kaolin Clay, Bamboo Charcoal and a bevy of anti-aging extracts, this botanical-based spa quality treatment helps to target clogged pores and excess oil, dissolving away impurities to leave you with clearer looking skin and a renewed luminosity of youthfulness.” – Vivo Per Lei

Hey There! So, I’ve been getting so many compliments and questions on where these yoga pants are from as well as these sneakers so I decided to give you all the details below.
These leggings are by one of my favorite brands: Yummie By Heather Thompson! You can shop her designs here: Women’s Leggings. They DO sell out fast so if you like a pair, get them. They also get different designs and patterns in frequently. They run true to size as well. I’m wearing a small.
Above I linked a similar pair to these yoga pants at well that I think are super cute. My sunnies are still in stock and these are personally my go-to & I always get compliments on them! My sneakers come in 4 different colors and range from $90-$120 depending on what color you choose. Linked a cute nike longer crop top as well as the coral tank below. The coral tank below comes in 4 colors & I went and bought the rest of them after realizing how amazing they are! They run $18 each but are currently on sale for $11!! Happy Shopping!

Don’t you love having a gorgeous tan? I know I do. How about having a tan that can last all year ’round yet not cause your skin to have any skin damage or wrinkles. Well I’ve been using Jergens® lotions for years and I’m honored to be partening up with them to share their newest product!
JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer!
It’s truly so important to take care of your skin, especially from the sun. Which makes it super hard to get that nice glow without sun damage. You can get gradual, natural-looking color which has now never been easier, thanks to with Jergens® Natural Glow® Wet Skin Moisturizer. I use the Medium to Tan formula. What’s the coolest part?! You use this in the shower!!
Whats another amazing thing about Jergens Natural Glow? It WILL NOT stain your towels as the DHA (the ingredient that creates the color) interacts with the proteins in your skin but there are no proteins in your towels! Amazing right? Won’t stain your bed sheets or clothing either. WIN!!
They have two different color based products:
1.Fair To Medium
2. Medium To Tan
JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer Fair to Medium link to purchase from Walmart is located here.
Some Tips & Tricks:
Apply on wet skin immediately after showering.
Towel dry as normal—this is key to achieving streak-free, natural-looking color.
Use daily in place of your regular moisturizer to achieve beautiful, natural-looking color and then use every other day to maintain your color.
Use to maintain and extend the color from the sun or other sunless tanners.
You will start to see color after 3-5 days! I see mine after 3 days.
If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me. I would love to discuss how you can get your color the safe way by also moisturizing your skin at the same time.
You can it at the last isle of the cosmetics department! See below where mine was:

I finally have time to do one of these monthly! Lately I’ve been leaning more towards the Sephora Play monthly subscription VS the Ipsy. I feel Ipsy used to try a little harder and have been slipping for awhile. You also get one more product in PLAY! than you do in Ipsy. What do you guys think?? Below you’ll find each product linked and which ones I liked the best. Feel free to comment below if you tried any of these with your thoughts as well.
MAY 2017 – Play By Sephora
Christophe Robin – Cleansing Purifying Scrub With Sea Scrub: Smells like heaven, it’s for your scalp! Rub this into you hair while showering. It’s made my hair SUPER soft and has helped with all the swimming I’ve been doing lately. It’s a little pricey but it’s worth it!
Sunday Riley – Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser: Honestly didn’t really do much for me. I personally think it’s a little over priced. I don’t care for the smell too much either.
TreStique – Highlight Stick: it’s does exactly what it’s supposed to do! Leave those cheek bones looking on fleek. Yes, I said fleek. I’d recommend this.
Replica Perfume – Beach Walk: so I’m officially hooked and I bought the full size right after spraying this on myself. Carl looked at me and goes “Ohhhhh” – Click. Bought. Paid for. Haha!
Nude Stix – Matte Lip Color: Personally not a huge matte fan but this got great reviews on Sephora.com
I rate May PLAY! By Sephora to be a 8/10 – only because I didn’t use the Nude Stix and I’m not a huge fan of the Clay Cleanser by Sunday Riley.
Below are the links to shop the products:
MAY 2017 Ipsy
Luxie Brush- Precision Foundation Brush: Hands down on of my favorite companies for brushes. They don’t shed & they keep their form. Worth every dollar! I love when Ipsy includes these.
Direct website to purchase: here
Benefit Cosmetics- “Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel”: It works great! Doesn’t make your brows too drastic, I just wish they wrote what shade I got on my sample size.
HEMPZ- Pomegranate Herbal Body Moisturizer: Smells amazing, I used to use this a lot when I was in college. It’s long lasting and great for dry skin.
TRESTIQUE MATTE COLOR & SHINY BALM LIP CRAYON: Personally not a fan of matte lips but their products are really great. I like how they usually do more than one thing. You could use for lips and cheeks!
K. Voss Macaroon Lip Balm: Smells beyond amazing and feels great on the lips. Only down fall is that I wish it was in a chapstick form, it’s messy for on the go.
Direct website for K.Voss: here
I rate the MAY Ipsy bag a 6/10. The functionality of these things just don’t work for me personally.

LG Front Load laundry benefits:
Cleaning and Convenience are at the top of my list and LG’s list when it comes to front load. Benefits?! Well, let’s discuss the benefits!! The cleaning performance within front load is better than top load; front loaders will typically use less water and also consume less electricity, the washer also spins faster to help keep clothes drier to reduce overall drying time. Sounds like a win, win right? I’m always down to save some water and money on my electric bill.
Key Benefits Review:
· Best cleaning performance
· Gentleness on clothes so they last longer
· Most energy efficient to save on utility bills
· Highest spin speaks to dry clothes faster
Above is a closer view of the new SideKick compatible, I love how you can do an additional 2 loads of laundry with this feature. Getting the job done quicker! Who wouldn’t love that?!
If you purchase an LG Front Load Washer and SideKick you will save an additional $150!
Best Buy Blue Shirts are experts in the benefits surrounding LG Front Load laundry, so don’t hesitate to ask them any questions you might have when you’re in store.
If you’re in the market for a new washer and dryer I would highly recommend checking out the latest and greatest from LG. The technology they have been coming out with is mind blowing. Image our grandparents using these back in the day. I bet they would of had extra time on their hands!
If you need to research the SKUS to find out more information they are these:

Summer is my favorite season! It’s all about fun in the sun, making new memories, maybe even traveling with friends and family. What else do I love about summer? All the fun cookouts and picnics!! I found two of my favorite quick treats to make and you don’t have to go anywhere near a stove. Oh, did I mention they take less than 10 mins to make?! Woo hoo! You’re taste buds are about to party. Below you will find the recipes for Melon Caprese Skewers & Shrimp and Corn Tostadas! Both of these appetizers were found in my June magazine of Women’s Health!
Melon Caprese Skewers
(Per serving 90 cal, 6g fat, 5g carbs, 4g sugar, 146 mh sodium, 0g fiber and 5g protein)
What you will need:
Fresh Basil (We got ours from the garden!)
Different types of Melon (I used only cantaloupe)
Fresh Ground Pepper
On each skewer put the following: A mini mozzarella ball wrapped in a basil left, a square of the prosciutto meat, a melon ball & repeat! When you are finished ground some fresh pepper on top!
Shrimp & Corn Tostadas
(Per serving: 42 cal, 3g fat, 4g carbs, 1g sugar, 46 mg sodium, 1g fiber, 2g protein)

Thanks to Women’s Health magazine for these great ideas, there was another page full of more yummy and quick fun apps! I will be sharing some more next week. Stay tuned.

Ok, I have to start by saying I use 3-4 masks a week and this one has by far exceed my expectations. I personally love a clay mask that tingles and tightens! It makes me feel like it’s actually working! Who’s with me? So, who’s the brand? It’s called Sand and Sky – It’s an Australian brand and it’s under $60 to purchase. It’s a 4-in-1 mask, Made with Australian Pink Clay and botanicals!! It’s worth every dollar and to be honest, I’d pay more after trying it!
All you need is 10 mins to change how your skin feels!!!
No nasties, no parabens, and cruelty-free.
DETOXIFY; DRAW THE BAD STUFF OUT
BRIGHTEN; UNLEASH YOUR NATURAL GLOW
Regenerate skin cells
Create a defence shield
Prevent free radical damage
One of my favorite things about this brand and mask is how it comes with a BRUSH. Small idea, HUGE game changer. Most brands don’t include one, which they need to get onto the brush bus asap because I don’t want to use my own and I’m 100% not using my fingers. We’re trying to keep our fingers off our skin, right ladies and gents? Yes! So big props to them for adding this adorable brush.
In the photos above showing the mask on my face you can see how it goes on pink and then turns white once it hardens and dries. I love this color changing process because it also helps you know when the mask has fully dried. It also gets tighter on your skin once dried, personally — my fav! My pores did seem smaller after just once us, I will give this mask a try twice a week and see my results. I know when reading the review it was said that 93% people see results after their first mask. Guess we can just add myself to that total!
For more information on the mask & how to purchase click here.
If you have ANY questions feel free to send me a direct message on Instagram or send me an email; firstname.lastname@example.org – I think you’ll love this mask as much as I do if you’re a mask fan!!
