Hey babes! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend – I sure did! My favorite weekends are the perfect balance of productivity and lounging, which is exactly what I did. I spent most of the day Saturday lounging, put in a few solid hours of work and then Sunday went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2! It was exceptional, of course.

Anyway! I’m sharing a few goodies I got in the mail last week, but first I need your help. I’ve been changing my blog content a bit, but I wanted to see how you guys felt about the shift and give you a chance for any feedback you might have. So if you have just a few quick minutes, I would love your opinion!

L. Tampons

So I haven’t had the chance to try these yet, but I wanted to go ahead and share them with you! I’ve been trying to be more conscious about my period products lately, so I’m really stoked to give L. products a try! They’re organic cotton and they give back to women entrepreneurs in developing countries. Keep your eyes peeled for more details on my Instagram account in the next week or two to see how I feel about these tampons.

Colourpop Haul

It’s been a minute since my last Colourpop order and their most recent sale pushed me to finally making another one! I actually made this order because I ALMOST ordered the Kylie X KKW collaboration but refused to let myself after my last Kylie Cosmetics experience. But seeing all the nudes made me want to order some Colourpop nudes for myself! I couldn’t find any actual nudes that I thought I really *needed* but I found several pinky nudes that I couldn’t resist. My absolute favorite is Littlestitious – I’m literally obsessed. It’s just a bit on the cool side, which is what I prefer for my lip products. I also ordered three pressed shadows, the only one I’ve tried so far is Labyrinth and I can’t stop wearing it. I’m wearing both of those in the photo below and I talk more about my eyeshadow in this post, Easy Eyeshadow Tutorial for Beginners.

Here’s everything I ordered:

Y’all already know how much I love Pixi, and these products are no exception. My favorite in this particular box is the Glow Tonic To Go! Their Glow Tonic is already one of my favorite products, but having them in such a travel friendly container is awesome! I probably won’t buy these often (because the Glow Tonic is just a more affordable option), but I love the idea of getting rid of a liquid for travel and having wipes instead! The Glow Mud Cleanser and Overnight Glow Serum were also included, I’m really excited for the serum because it’s an exfoliator!

Sally Beauty Haul

I had the best birthday ever this year because I got to spend it doing a shoot with Sally Beauty! You might have seen some behind the scenes pictures on social media. After the shoot, they sent me some of the goodies I used during the shoot! Some products were old favorites (the ASP Gel Nail Kit, Wet N Dry Brush, and both dry shampoos) but some are new to me! Right now my favorite is probably the GVP Volume Building Oil Control Finishing Spray. It compares to the Kenra Dry Texture Spray, a cult favorite especially on shorter hair. It’s a great way to make my hair just a little messier without the stickiness of a spray wax. I also find that it doesn’t dry my hair out like a sea salt spray does. Give it a spin!

Enjoy your week, y’all! And don’t forget to take the survey please! 🙂
