My Morning Breakfast Routine

Hazel Nut coffee cream is my all time favorite. I love Starbucks dark espresso roast, and Genvalia espresso roast. I am not hungry in the mornings, but know If I don’t eat I will be miserable and mos likely burn and crash. So instead , I start my mornings off with drinking coffee to start my tummy going, and eat a banana or an apple. If I am really feeling hungry I eat cereal with vanilla coconut milk and a sliced banana. Depending on the season, I get frozen berries unless it is berry season. Oregon has the best berries, I think. I like to add blueberries, and strawberries on the top. Don’t get me wrong I love bacon, eggs, and waffles, but lets get real who has time for that on the week day? Not me. I use a self press coffee maker. I heat water on the stove (in a teapot) and really, it takes me about 5 minutes to make a lovely cup of coffee, and a nice breakfast for the day.

 

SKIN COCONUT TRIP

IMG_8325

I’ve discovered Mountain Ocean Skin Coconut Trip to be the perfect soap for my sensitive skin. A warm hint of coconut lathers together, hydrating skin majorly, leaving my skin feeling lush silky soft. Not smelling overly coconut-y Mountain Ocean Skin Coconut Trip formula comes in soap and lotion. Both are ah-mazing. In the past I have only used the Mountain Ocean Skin Coconut Trip lotion.  A few years ago, my dorm roommate introduced me to this lovely product. I will forever remember this magical skin trip from my early years in college. It is embarrassing to admit for me, but suffering from dry skin and being active outdoors really makes a girl self conscious. For me it is all about my arms and shoulders, I wouldn’t even wear anything to show of dry my skin. How Zzz am I? Anyways, my dorm roommate gave me the magical formula that I will forever remember and thank her for. Recently, I have bought the soap, and am so happy I did.  Loving both the Mountain and Ocean and not so much the after effect of dryness Mountain Ocean Skin Coconut Trip dip your skin into hydration and take a trip while in the shower, why not?

L’OREAL true match I find to apply very smoothly and evenly to my face. True match stays on the whole day with radiant lasting color. My skin ton is tough to find a foundation that not only applies nicely and goes with my skin ton, a foundation that stays on throughout a long day. I like this product because it hasn’t failed me and stays true to its word. This has been my to go to foundation and I love the result every time I wear L’OREAL true match.

Bath & Body Works has been around since I was a teen. I’ve always enjoyed the whimsical experience going into Bath & Body Works. I love the smells and how I can try any of their products and the customer service is so lovey. Helping yet not pushy in anything. Very informative and loves to share their personal loves for a product. While purchased in my bag, I’ve found a coupon for $10.00 next $30.oo shopping spree.

BOHO SHOPS

IMG_8324

I love walking around town and getting lost in a part of town I thought I knew so well. Shops come and go, but the ones that are pure magic stay. In the city I live in how could I not have know about this little cute shop? It imports pretty treasures from Spain. This tin caught my eye, I am a sucker for packaging. My curiousity majorley kicked in and wanted to discover what this tin consited of. Having a bit of trouble opening the tin, I useley have trouble opening things. After what seemed like all 25 nights of Christmas sleeps I opened the magical formula of pure bliss. Violet, oh violet what a lovely skinny dip in the sea of her. When having a lip product I enjoy the product to be dressed in a fabulous outfit and this, this clearly needs to be in my makeup bag and on the go. After I’ve used the Violet lip balm up, it can be used for a nice tin to put whatever in, or that can fit in. I always like colecting little treasuers as I like to call them. That is just me and what I enjoy. It’s not like I have a whole box filled with them or anything.

Color – Tit For Tat 

Pepperpot color Tit For Tat, is an amazing gift I got for Christmas, from my boyfriends mom. It is a local designer from Portland, Oregon. Pepperpot belives strongly in natural products. I love this color and how it makes me happy. The nail polish paints on smoothly and you do need about the usual two coat of nail paint. This color lasted on my nails without chipping  for about a week. Also me smuggeding one painted nail too soon and then hear and there chipping away at it in disgust, I give this product an A+ !!! 

Planet NARS


GULITY! I know, right? This was my very first time purchasing NARS products. I have to admit it was my first time going into a sephora store. 

 As overwhelming as stepping into the makeup galaxy of Sephora was it was also a fun experience. Sephora has everything you need to satisfie the glamour addition. As overwhelmed as I was with all Sephora has to offer and by the crowed rush of shoppers I thought I should go with NARS for my first purchase.

 My friends can’t say anything bad about this product. So I was kind of brain washed previously, so finding NARS was an instant relief. I went through the shades to match my skin tone. Remembering to go lighter and not a nice tan I wish I was. The whole tan face and lighter rest of your body look isn’t a good look for anyone. And I had to find that out with emberessing ever lasting pictures on social media that only the use of them would be in result of being black mailed by those pictures for not my money because I don’t have any but maybe for my candy stash and size 7 shoe collection. 

I looked through NARS collection at Sephora, of course wanting everything i came across two NARS produtcs that looked very interesting and something I could use in my everyday makeup collection. 

NARS Light 1 Siberia 6040 Sheer Glow Foundation Complexion Brightening Formula 

Light 3 Honey 1233 Radiant Creamy Concealer 


Model Cali (no puppy was harmed in the making of this.) Product NARS Sephora

Candles are forever, well kind of. 

Candles are my favorite, recently I purchased a few candles because after all it is fall and what better time to get candles for home to decorate and smells amazing. The first candle is White Spruce and it is one of my favorite types of candles, and I can only buy this time during fall and feel silly burning one in July while playing Christmas music, but you know I’ve done that. The second candle is Lilac and Honey Suckle which  reminds me of the spring time and my childhood neighborhood growing up playing outside. And the third candle is a new scent to me. Honestly, all the little starts of succulent plants I’ve had I never knew had a sent to them. Even though all the sussluent plants I’ve had ended up getting murrdered by my cat or just simply over or under watered the plants. I have just had bad luck with them. So, I was excited to discover  this candle and liked the smell. I am happy with my three candle splurg, just in time for the holidays!
