Good morning and happy Tuesday! One of my favorite parts about the morning is getting ready for the day. I find it very relaxing to take my time sipping my coffee while I go through my daily routine, which includes doing my makeup. Having good light is essential, especially when applying eyeliner. This illuminated mirror, with three different magnifications (1x, 5x, 10x) gives exceptional detail and allows you to achieve flawless pro-quality makeup application. The mirror has numerous light settings as well with simulated natural sunlight and even a candlelight setting. I really love the built-in motion sensor, which lights the mirror up automatically as you approach it. I personally use the 5x magnification side on a daily basis and love love love the sunlight mode. The light is truly amazing and worth every penny. This mirror is a game changer for makeup application.

VIIcode Eye Mask c/o || PJ Set c/o || 

Good morning, friends! Today I’m excited to talk about a revolutionary eye mask system from VIIcode. The eye masks are soft pads with a gel-like material that feels amazing to put on. A fun tip would be to put the pads in the refrigerator before applying them at night. To receive maximum benefits from the eye mask, it is recommended to wear them for eight hours at night. One box comes with six pads, which can be worn two or three times per week giving about two or three weeks worth of treatment. A full treatment would be three boxes total. Now, onto the benefits! Being a busy mom, I typically have under eye circles that I need to cover up with makeup in the morning. Depending on the weather, the delicate skin around my eyes can feel a bit dry as well. The eye pads are so easy to put on. You just peel back the plastic, stick the gel side against your skin, and go to sleep! When I would take them off in the morning, my skin looked refreshed and felt soft. The dryness was gone and my delicate eye skin felt moisturized. My eyes didn’t look tired anymore, but looked revitalized. I really love how these masks work while I’m sleeping too. A totally no fuss system that delivers results with powerful antioxidants. Some of the key ingredients are, Vitmin E, Sodium PCA, Sodiun Hyaluranate, Allantoin, Aloe Barbadneis, and Algin. I was also impressed with the feel of the gel pads. I was worried they wouldn’t ld stay on or would fall off while I slept, but that did not happen at all. The gel had a nice cooling feeling (fantastic in the warm summer months!) and they stayed put all night long. No slipping or moving around. If you’re under eye area needs a little love, definitely give these gel eye masks a try!

T3 Single Pass Wave c/o || Pink Pearl Top c/o || AG Skinny Jeans || DW Rose Gold Watch c/o ||  

Welcome May and happy May Day!  May just so happens to be one of my favorite months and though I may be partial to it because it’s my birthday month, I can’t help but feel an over excitement that the month has arrived. Speaking of, today is also “It’s Gonna Be May” for all of the *NSYNC and Justin Timberlake fans! Did anyone happen to see their walk of fame ceremony yesterday? Ava and I watched the live stream of it. Sadly, they did not reunite for a song, but it was fantastic to see hem all together again! The crowd kept chanting “reunite, reunite, reunite” so I’m definitely not alone in this wishful thinking, haha. 

The one brand I know I can count on for  flawless hairstyling is T3 Micro. I quickly became a fan the moment I tried my first curling wand from them and have not looked back. Their new SinglePass Wave is designed for all hair types and for women who want fast styling with beautiful and healthy results. We’re talking about some gorgeous summer sunshine type of shine for your hair! T3’s custom blend Tourmaline + ceramic barrels emit negative ions that seal the cuticle fast, to retain moisture and produce healthy, shiny results. The lightweight design includes five adjustable heat settings ranging from 260F-410F and a SmartTwist dial to easily turn the tool on/off and regulate the temperature. Along with the Tourmaline + ceramic barrels technology comes the new T3 digital SinglePass technology allowing for a consistent temperature, one pass styling, and flawless, frizz-free waves.

Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon c/o || Floral PJ Set c/o (Use the code AmandaZOV20 for 20% off!) || 

Good morning, friends! Today I’m excited to talk about a new transformative night gel-cream from Dermalogica called Sound Sleep Cocoon. I’ve been using mine for about one month and feel confident to talk about the results I’ve seen. I always put the Sound Sleep Cocoon on as my last step for the night followed by spritzing a lavender-vanilla most on my pillows to help me sleep. 

Now, let’s talk a little bit about skin in genreal. It’s actually nocturnal! It regenerates and repairs itself at night while you sleep. The maximum nighttime skin repairs occurs between 9pm until midnight. In our busy world, not all of us get enough sleep though, yours truly included. For all of the nights when you don’t get enough rest, the Sound Sleep Cocoon is here to help by promoting skin repair so you can wake up with glowing skin by morning. My skin definitely looks refreshed and feels very soft by morning. 

The key ingredients in the gel-cream are Persian silk tree extract, which provides antioxidant protection, reduces the signs of fatigue and brightens tired skin. The next ingredient is quite-shy-ya fruit extract. This promotes a refined, even skin texture and illuminates dull skin, visibly increasing radiance by morning. Lastly, the motion-activated lavender oil is released throughout the night as you toss and turn helping you Sleep even in restless nights. The lavender is so soothing to the senses. I love putting this gel-cream on and immediately smelling the soothing scent. It’s not overwhelming, but pleasently in the background.

Dermalogica all c/o || Precleanse || Daily Microfoliant || Phyto Replenish Oil || Hydrablur Primer ||  

Happy Monday, friends! I was recently introduced to a skincare brand I had heard so much about and definitely wanted to give a try. For those of you that do not know, I’ve struggled with acne my entire adult life. Having to deal with this has led me to become very passionate about my skin care routine. It’s very exciting to find a company with products that deliver on their promise and are just as passionate about skin care as I am. After trying these products for about one month, I am truly impressed with each one. My favorite of the four were the daily microfoliant and the phyto replenish oil, which I’ve incorporated into my daily routine. 

The Precleanse is an oil that gently removes everything from waterproof mascara to chewing gum in hair! It removes excess oil without clogging pores. It was very relaxing to massage this oil over my dry face for a minute or two and then add water to emulsify. After using a cleanser, I would the  use the Daily Microfoliant, which I love. My face always does better when I exfoliate it everyday. Many exfoliants are only to be used two to three times a week so it’s definitely a plus that this one is for daily use. It’s a powder that you activate by adding water in your hands to create a creamy paste. It gently smoothed away dulling skin cells for instantly brighter skin! I would end my nightly routine with the Phyto Replensih Oil, a true all star of the group. I use 5-6 drops and then gently press onto my skin. This oil strengthens the skin’s natural barrier to create a luminous antioxidant shield against free-radical damage. The Hydrablur Primer locks in hydration and provides a light, neutral coverage that can be worn alone or under makeup. This primer blues the appearance of fine line and mattifines shine. I honestly am horrible with primers, haha. I forget to put them on in the morning before my foundation, but when I would remember to wear the primer, it did smooth everything out and I didn’t have to use as much foundation as normal. A win in my book!

Good morning and happy Thursday! Today I’m excited to bring you the latest Glossybox for March, which is celebrating true beauty for International Women’s Day. We’re reflecting on those amazing ladies in our lives who lead by example, lifting us up when we need it, and singing along side of us when we're feeling fabulous. For me, that woman who I admire for her strength, perseverance, ability to do-it-all, and never give up even when life was unfair to her is my mom. She was strong, warm, kind, and represented true beauty to me inside and out. I could not have asked for a better role model or mother. I miss her every single day of my life. Likewise, I’m also teaching all of the qualities my mother instilled in me to my beautiful daughter. My mother’s love and beauty shines bright from within Ava.

Designed to keep skin shine-free and perfect all day, this lightweight primer smooths away imperfections and minimizes the look of pores. Another benefit? The multifunctional formula also gifts blemishes, promising nothing but clear days ahead. This went on so smooth and helped my makeup go on even smoother with little shine throughout the day. Definitely a keeper!

Designed to also strengthen your strands against breakage, this nutritive mist, which is infused with coconut oil, Arian oil, avocado oil, and grapeseed oil will keep any style, from beach waves to tight braids, looking fierce.

Happy Tuesday, friends!  Today I’m bringing you all of the goodies from the February edition of Glossybox’s monthly beauty box. Their campaign for this month is all about “sealed with a kiss” and includes two great lip products! This was soooo much fun to photograph! The box is incredibly cute, but even cuter is my little Ava wanting to be a part of it. She was all about the roses and even handed one to me, which melted my heart. Now when I say, “I love you, Ava” so replies back, “I love you too, Mommy.” Be still my beating heart! Those are the most beautiful words ever for a mom to hear. Of course, Batman got a ton of love from Ava too. She made sure he had many roses. He’s her secret crush, haha. #bemyvalentine. Now, onto the beauty products! 

 

Luxor Beauty Onyx Noir Small Tapered Blending 231  : When it comes to eyeshadow, the brush you use everything! Achieve precise and blended colors with soft synthetic bristles that create a natural look.

Happy Friday, friends! One of my favorite places to find a good bargain is at TJMaxx. This post is NOT sponsored or anything, but rather just some great finds I found on a recent visit there. Note, everything in this post is from the actual brick and mortar store and not listed on their online website. It’s deifntely worth a trip to your local store to see if any of the items are available there! They always have hidden gems at amazing prices so be on the lookout. I actually used to work there back in college and would see first hand how new stock comes in everyday. One of my favorite finds was the blush circle bag by Madison West. It looks EXACTLY like the Mansur Gavriel Bag, but for only $30. The Kate Spade hat was another great find and it was on sale! Perfect for the upcoming spring and summer. I initially went in to find some jewelry cases since I’ve found some beautiful glass ones at TJMaxx and Marshall’s before. Upon seeing the triple trays from Richard’s, I decided to go with those instead and LOVE them. They look so chic and allow all of my jewelry to be seen. I hate when my jewelry is tucked away in boxes or drawers. You cannot see what you have then! How adorable is the blouse from Love Notes?! It has an eyelash, lip, and heart print on it. Plus the blue stripes are a classic print that will never go out of style. The leopard bag from Dune London looks way more expensive than it is with a top handle, gold detailing, and pops of red along the sides. 

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and weekend!

Good morning, friends and happy Tuesday! The holiday season is in full swing and with that comes holiday makeup! My obvious favorite color to wear for any holiday party is red, but we all know how hard it is to maintain with the worrisome smudging or rubbing off. I was recently introduced to LipSense by a friend of mine and was completely impressed with it! No smudging or rubbing off. It’s kiss proof too! I tested the lipstick out for a few weeks and can honestly say it works wonders. It comes in a set with the lipstick color, a top gloss, and a remover for any mistakes made during the application. Below is a step by step guide on how to apply the product and a discount code for my followers! 

  •  Thoroughly clean and dry your lips
  • Shake your LipSense  
  • Start on the bottom lip and apply from corner-to-corner in one swipe on the outer lip. Then repeat on he inner lip.  
  • Apply from corner-to-corner on the top lip in one swipe. Then repeat on the top inner lip.  
  • Once you have applied your first coat, let it dry. This should only take a couple seconds. Try not to touch your lips together. Your lips will feel sticky.  
  • Repeat steps 3-5 two more times for a total of 3 layers of color. Be sure to let dry between layers.  
  • Once the color is dry, you’ll apply your gloss and even out by gently rubbing your lips together. 
  • Apply gloss as needed throughout the day

This may seem like many steps, but once you practice a few times you’ll get the hang of it. I can do mine in about 1-2 minutes and it’s totally worth it! LipSense does have to be purchased through an independent distributor (kind of like Avon.) I get mine from Maddie. She is great and totally helped me the whole way!

In the spirit of giving, Glossybox created their Grateful beauty box for November. Inside are goodies that will not only look good, but do good too. Ava wanted to be a part of the fun also! She loves looking through all of the beauty products, especially the lipstick and perfumes. She had a ton of fun during the shoot! Below you’ll find what’s included: 

  •  Tarteist Brow Gel : Tame and maintain those brows! A paraban-free, water-infused formula means no drying, no flaking, and a naturally clean finish with just a few strokes. I have thick brows and love how this product kept mine in place all day! 
  •  Kat Von D Beauty Saint Eau De Parfum : This parfum is customized based on your own body heat. SAINT features classic floral notes of vanilla, musk, and jasmine. Ava and I both loved it! 
  •  Nature Queen   Shampoo & Conditioner : Nourish, balance, and cleanse your hair more beautifully with help from this cult-loved natural hairline. Aromatic ingredients like honey locust, lemongrass, and patchouli make every hair wash a home spa experience! 
  •  Evoo Beauty Green Tea Primer : This silky green tea and avocado oil blend means a smooth start (and finish( every time.  
  •  Laqa & CO Cloud Lips Airy Matte Lipstick In Daydream : This chubby lip pencil packs a long-lasting, just-applied look that stays put all day. This has avacado oil in it making it a smooth finish that’s high on pigment too! Another favorite of Ava and mine! The color is a dark blush which I tend to wear as my everyday color. Very flattering!

Irresistible Me Auto Steam Roller c/o || 

Good morning, everyone! My favorite hair style to wear is curled, but I don't always have a ton of time to curl my hair everyday. When I saw this auto curler, I thought, yes! something that can save me time and get the job done. Basically, you need to really brush your hair out so its smooth and without any knots. After taking a one inch section of hair and pulling straight down on it, you place the hair into the roller, shut it, and let the roller curl your hair. It'll beep when the curl is finished. I do mine on the 12 second setting since my hair is thicker and never holds a curl very well. There was a bit of a learning curve for me with this. It definitely took me a few tries to get it just right. I used the auto curler on the left side of my hair in the photos above so you can see the difference. I found my hair looked more beachy waves than the curls I'm used to with my curling wand. I did like how there is a setting that will allow the curler to automatically switch the direction of the curl each time you use it for a more natural look.

Hello all and happy Wednesday! If you're like me, then time is of the essence and something I seem to never have enough of! I try to make my morning routine as quick and efficient as possible so I can get my day started with little Ava. When I was in college, I used hot rollers every day. I loved the big bouncy curls they created and how I could keep them in while I was getting other things done like my makeup, brushing my teeth, and so on. I always felt they saved me time while doing my hair. Typically, I don't do very much to my hair so whenever I want a polished look, it has to be with a tool that will be quick and easy.

T3 is quickly becoming a go-to brand for all types of hair styling tools. Their quality and price point cannot be beat! Their newly enhanced hot rollers deliver shiny hair with lots of volume and curl. I was amazed at the amount of volume I had. Powered by advanced T3 HeatCore Technology, equipped with dual temperature settings for all hair types, each roller ensures optimal heat transfer for lasting volume, body and shine. The velvet flocking on each roller boosts shine and grips with no tangles, a huge plus for me! Having long hair, tangles do happen so this is a nice feature to have. Their insulated rim makes handling and wrapping your hair a breeze. 8 crease-free clips are included to hold the rollers firmly in place. These hot rollers are great for shoulder length or longer hair.
