The Best Of Samples!

Hey there, how was your day? Hope you had a good one or if you just woke up, then in that case; Good Morning, have a beautiful day.

NEW SERIES. NEW SERIES. NEW SERIES 

Today’s blog post is not really about a product or a topic but rather an introduction to my new series.

Introduction to what you may wonder, well there’s no wondering here because this is a series that will bring you ‘the best of samples’ and to insure the best is the best indeed, there would be a corresponding one ‘the worst of samples’ (when possible) 

images.jpegOkay, so basically the deal is I’ve been thinking about sharing some really good products that were actually samples but they are worth sharing,raving,and obsessing over. So I finally decided I would introduce to you guys a brand new series in which I will discuss, review and share some of the samples I’ve been loving or in that case even hating. But let me warn you, you may or may not find as many regular posts for ‘the worst of samples’ why? Well, only because if I don’t like something the first few times I try it or doesn’t show a negative or positive effect, I just leave it right then and there so there’s not much for me to say and I wouldn’t want to waste your time either.

Stay Tuned For Reviews Coming Soon.Soon.

 

I’m really looking forward to this at the same time hoping you will too 🙂  it’s perfect especially for those monthly subscriptions too, we see the unboxing so why not see how the products hold up to their promises and descriptions. What you say? Leave a comment if you’ve doing something like this all along and I’m just late hehe in that case I have some catching up to do. (well, I mean I have to do that in general)

My Winter Morning Routine: The REAL VERSiON

So I thought it would be fun to do a WINTER MORNING ROUTINE here on my blog, I have always loved watching them and now reading them here on the blog. I hope you all enjoy them just as much as I do and that my morning routine doesn’t bore you away from my blog today 🙂 

9:00 A.M   Alarm Goes OFF…Wake Up!!!

Alarm goes off and I hit snooze at least twice, it’s winter break after all, plus there’s something about winter that’s cozy to sleep in and it feels good 🙂 I finally wake up 9:30 or 10:00 sometimes even 11 shh… did I even tell you about my relationship with sleep, it’s a strong bond!

Let’s have a look…

9:30 A.M – 10:00 A.M   Actually Getting Out of Bed… Slowly 

For this morning routine blog we’re going to stick with my ‘normal‘ timing’s.

When I’m ready to finally get out of bed, I find my phone and check my notifications, ehm… WordPress seems to be most active while I’m catching my zzz’s so I reply to comments, then check my snapchat, reply to some messages and you know all that stuff, I stop there with the social media and get out of my bed, stretch a little and go straight to the bathroom, I’ve had this habit for ever, I never skip brushing my teeth and washing my face, never. That’s what wakes me up! I go back and make my bed so it’s looking all nice when I come back to my room plus if I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it. Make your bed every morning, it has such a great impact throughout the day.

Let’s have a look… 🙂 Today’s shoot features my fav Emoji Pillow

10:00 A.M – 11:00 A.M Skincare. Good Morning. Breakfast

Winter is so bad to my skin… I hate it for that reason!

And for that reason, after washing my face, I take care of it. I don’t take too long but I will apply moisturizer to my face/neck, can’t forget the lips and the hands so I throw some hand lotion on and my good old vaseline to my lips, fix my hair a little. As you can tell I do it all quickly and there is NO makeup, none, that’s mainly because I’m hungry and I need breakfast and caffeine before anything else can happen.

Let’s have a look …

img1484510978564.jpgimg1484516697115.jpg

I say “good morning to my mom if she’s still in her room” and head down stairs to make me some breakfast. I eat differ things or I try to, and it’s not always healthy, yet, I said yet, cause there will be a time I will always eat healthy I’m working on it.

Breakfast 

First thing; I make me some lemon water and drink that before starting breakfast.

A slice of bread with a omelet and of course a good cup of tea, I drink tea in the mornings not coffee, I only need a little something to lift me up and I think that’s a good thing so I keep it at that.

While I have my breakfast I’ll go on my laptop/phone to visit my blog and go through the feed, I have to be on Youtube to watch something while I eat always. That’s how I spend the rest of my morning basically and once I’m done eating, I’ll clean the dishes and head back upstairs or I might just come back to the table and sit there again reading more blogs.

img1484853438849.jpgimg1484853854334.jpgimg1484853816485.jpgimg1484853945704.jpg

11:00 A.M – 12:00 P.M Starting The Actual Day 

Now the best part of my mornings, you might find it hard to believe that I actually enjoy going to the gym… yeah and that’s how my mornings end. I change to my workout clothes, put on my sneakers, grab the keys, oh and of course a water bottle, see I always forget something but I mostly remember before walking out so that saves me 🙂

And with that I think I’m done with my Winter Morning Routine, I did it! This is like my ‘very’ first morning routine on my blog and it ‘was’ different but in a good way, definitely a bit more work compared to my other posts but well worth it because I enjoyed it 🙂

No wait… my Real Winter Morning Routine yup… there you have it, I finally did it. You guys that’s all, sorry if it was beyond boring but I can tell you one thing it was real, that’s exactly what I do, so if you enjoyed it that makes me really really happy and I love you 🙂 kisses xo

If there’s something I could have done differ, let me know, don’t be shy, and most of all, I want to see your current morning routine you guys know how much I enjoy these. I know mine is a bit late and I’m sorry if was suppose to go up earlier but it’s here NOW!

THANK YOU FOR READING!

Stay Beautiful & Share your Morning Routine 🙂

20170210150347_IMG_0758

First up is this LIVING PROOF Full Dry Volume Blast weightless hairspray that delivers long-lasting volume and texture for fuller looking hair that is also silky-soft.

20170210150816_IMG_0763

Next, we have this JOSIE MARAN Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm it’s a game changer for makeup, a skincare hybrid primes and finishes with a whipped formula for luminous effect. This for some reason speaks luminous to me even in the jar hehe.

20170210150850_IMG_0764

Oh, here we have this month’s perfume pick, which is just like a ‘cherry on top’ 🙂 it’s the CHLOE FLEUR DE PERFUME infused with rose petals and fresh notes of verbena softened by freesia that create a lighthearted and luxe scent.

20170210150858_IMG_0765

Fragrance Family: Floral

Top Notes: Lemon essence, absolute verbena, freesia

Middle Notes: Rose, cherry blossom

Base Notes: White cedar essence, bitter almond, amber

                     20170210150938_IMG_0767

Look what we have here, another GLAM GLOW Glow starter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer it’s a two-in-one moisturizer and luminizer that hydrates, blurs, and enhances any complexion with a “lit-from-within” finish ohh!

20170210150948_IMG_0768

After that we have here the BOBBI BROWN Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick In Golden Pink it’s super-creamy it looks creamy and soft, and it’s waterproof, I like that, glides on, blends easily without tugging for crease.

20170210151000_IMG_0769

Lastly, that’s it right yeah the last thing we have here looks interesting it’s from BENEFIT COSMETICS Whatt’s Up! Cream-to-Powder Highlighter told you it looked interesting oh and it’s their bestselling highlighter that defines facial features with a luminous, soft-focus sheen and an easy-to-apply cream to powder formula. Sold, there is a lot going on in this little guy and I’m in love with it.

That was one fun unboxing today, not to mention, I was just bored and this made me so happy, see I even got it up for you TODAY 🙂 probably the quickest upload yet but hey hope you enjoy it, and if you do please give it a ‘LIKE’ let me know that you liked it. I hope your day was a fabuulous one 🙂
