Mini Clothing + More Haul!


Hi loves! I hope you are all having a wonderful August! I recently got some new things and I want to share them with you. I LOVE Joan Boyce slippers. They are the absolute best! I got them in pink, cream, and black from HSN. She comes out with a new version of her slippers every year. She does not have any on HSN at the moment (they sold out); however, keep an eye out for them because you will fall in love! 

I bought a pair of BC Footwear gunmetal sandals. They are so cute! Gunmetal goes with so many different things. I have already begun wearing them. I received the lovely dish from my mom as a gift. "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world" by Bette Midler is one of my favorite quotes ever and pink and purple are my favorite colors. Overall, love, love, love! Lastly, I bought a top from Macys that says "Trucks, Cowboys, and Country Music" because trucks, cowboys, and country music are the best (obviously). :D I saw it and I just needed it.

San Francisco Salt Company Bath Salts Review


I was researching on the internet one day and I was lucky to come across the San Francisco Salt Company. They are absolutely amazing! I purchased their Designer Bag Pack of 3. I chose the Rose Dead Sea Salts, Muscle Soak, and Luscious Lavender Milk Bath. I also received a sample of California Breeze with my purchase and a Certificate of Authenticity for the Minera Dead Sea Salt. I did not know they send a free sample with every order- It is such a great bonus!

They all have a wonderful, strong scent. For instance, the Rose Dead Sea Salts actually smell like roses! The scents definitely stay true to their name. They are all very relaxing and luxurious. The best part is that they all have so many fantastic benefits!

~Rose Dead Sea Salts~ 

The Rose Dead Sea Salts combine Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, English Rose Fragrance, and high mineral Dead Sea Salts. Coloring is used to make the salts pink; however, your bath will not be pink. It is said to be calming and relaxing, as well as possess therapeutic qualities for dry or sensitive skin.

The smell of these salts is heavenly!! I am addicted to rose- I will take anything with this scent. These salts definitely delivered because they have a true rose scent- not a manufactured scent. I agree that the Rose Dead Sea Salts are calming and relaxing. They are very useful when you want to unwind after a long day. Overall, I would say these salts are my favorite solely because they are pink and rose scented. 

Price Description:
28oz Bag (1.75lbs) - $8.99 (sale price)

~Muscle Soak~ 

This soak is eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils blended with pure Epsom salt. It is white in color. The Muscle Soak is designed for athletes, former athletes, or anyone with muscle aches and pains. It would also be beneficial to anyone that works in retail or that has a physically demanding job. Muscle Soak is said to soothe, relieve, and revive your muscles. 

The Muscle Soak is amazing!!! I am an athlete (dancer), so these salts work wonders! My muscles definitely feel relaxed, relieved, and revived after taking a bath with them. If you have muscle aches and pains, you need this in your life! I am starting to think I am going to need a never ending supply of them... I may just buy a gigantic bag of regular Epsom Salts from them and then mix some Muscle Soak into it so it will last longer. 

Price Description:
2lb Bag - $14.99

You can buy this product here.

~Luscious Lavender Milk Bath~ 

The Luscious Lavender Milk Bath combines Pacific Sea Salt and Lavender Essential Oil with Milk Powder, Coconut Milk Powder, Honey Powder, and Ginseng Root Powder. This milk bath is a cream-colored powder. It is said to calm, nourish, soothe, and soften your skin.

I really enjoyed this milk bath! I loved the scent and I felt calmer and more relaxed. I have oily/combination skin, so I didn't see that much of a difference in the softness of my skin. I think this is better for normal/dry skin because I definitely believe you will see a difference. I love the smell of lavender, so I don't really mind if I see the full benefits or not.

Price Description:
24oz Bag (1.5lbs) - $8.99 (sale price)

You can buy this product here.

~California Breeze Bath Salts~  

The California Breeze Bath Salts combine Pacific Sea Salt with a California Breeze fragrance. Coloring is used to make the salts blue; however, your bath will not be blue. It is said to be very relaxing. 

These bath salts definitely smell like you are on vacation in the Bahamas or some other tropical destination. I used to live by the beach in California, so this takes me back home. If you don't live by the beach, these salts will definitely bring the beach to you. I felt very relaxed after taking a bath with these salts. They are great!

Price Description: 
2lb Bag - $14.99

All four products that I tried left an amazing aroma in my bathroom. It lingered there for a long time afterwards. I think it would be a good idea to put these salts in your bathtub and fill it up with water before you entertain guests. You can drain the water out right before they get to your house and your bathroom will be left smelling divine!

I have used these products separately and together! I think that they are very mixable. For instance, I mixed the Muscle Soak with the Rose Dead Sea Salts quite a bit. There is a certain amount that they recommend on their website to put into your bathtub. Of course it varies depending on the size of your bathtub. I did not use the full amount. I know that it will give you more benefits if you use more, but I didn't want them to be gone too quickly!

Everything on the San Francisco Salt Company's website is affordable. Their items make fantastic gifts!! They release special holiday bath and spa soaks which would make great gifts for Christmas. I cannot wait until they have their seasonal scents because I really want to try them!

They have a "specials" page on their website. Check it out here. They also have free shipping on $20 or more! You can purchase their products in all different sizes. They have a multitude of sets as well. I purchased the Designer Bag Pack of 3 (2lb each) for $29.98. You can purchase this set here.

Mascara Haul!


I recently purchased some new mascaras because 1. I needed more (don't we all ;D) and 2. I wanted to try some new ones! I got one full size and three deluxe sizes. I bought theBalm What's Your Type? Black Mascara. I saw the packaging and I could not resist!! My thought process on this was, "Oh my gosh, this mascara knows me so well! I need it!!!" haha 

I also bought Tarte Lights, Camera, Flashes Black Mascara. I have actually already tried this one out since purchasing it. My first impression on this mascara is that I am not that impressed thus far. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on this one- you either love it or hate it. I am going to do a comparison/review on all of these, so stay tuned because my opinion may change! 

I got Estee Lauder Sumptuous BoldVolume Lifting Mascara in Black, which I also got in my Estee Lauder gift with purchase. I did a post on my Estee Lauder haul. Check it out here. Lastly, I got Marc Jacobs O! Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara in 30 Blacquer.

Estee Lauder Beauty Haul


Hi loves! I recently went to Macy's in search for a new foundation. Estee Lauder had a gift with purchase going on, so I decided to take advantage of it! I purchased the Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup Foundation in 2N1 Desert Beige. I received their Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick Rouge in Pinkberry Creme, Pure Color Gloss in Pink Innocence Shimmer, and Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara in Black as a gift. The gift also came with Take It Away Makeup Remover and a face creme; however, I did not want them. I ended up giving them to my mom and she bought me a Shiseido Eyelash Curler. I received a Lisa Perry Sunglass Tote and Sunglass Case as well. This gift with purchase was their summer set. They don't offer it anymore; however, they do have another gift with purchase going on right now if you love Estee Lauder. 

I am excited to try out the products and I will do a review for you on them sometime soon. Make sure to follow me on Bloglovin, Twitter,and Pinterest!

Color of the Month - August

It is finally August!!! Yay! August is one of my favorite months and one of the best months of the year... I am probably a little bit biased because it is my birthday month. ;D I am really looking forward to a new season of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team on August 6th and the Yahoo Live Nation concert of Luke Bryan on August 7th!! Are any of you DCC or Luke Bryan fans?? Let me know in the comments below!

The color of August is Sun Orange. It is a true pumpkin orange that lifts your mood and dispels darkness.

Three characteristics that describe this color are... 

Regal 
Inspiring
Powerful

Sun Orange resonates with power and greatness. It opens the heart, eliminates self-consciousness, and increases creativity and joy. It also helps you gain riches and monetary support.

How do I know about the color of the month? I found all of the information in the book Colorstrology by Michele Bernhardt. You can find it here.
