Pool Goddess!

Hey Everyone!

I thought today I would talk about some of my favorite pool-day-products! This is typically what I throw in my pool bag! 

The Bag:

One time I ordered from Victoria's Secret online and got a free tote with a swim purchase! Don't you love those free gifts?! 

Sunscreen/Tanning Oil:

For tanning oil I love the Banana Boat products. 

and for sunscreen...

I like this because the SPF is high enough for me and it stays through sweat and water.

Lip Balm:

I got my lips sunburned last month and it was really painful. So, I suggest you always have some sort of lip SPF with you. 

Romper/Cover Up:

I saw this romper on and thought it was so cute! They have it in black and gold as well but I love the bright orange! 

I also throw in some extras like bobby pins, hair elastics, a book or magazine and a towel haha! 

Hope you guys have a great day!

Update: Stress, Moving and New Videos

Hey Guys!

Just wanted to make a quick blog post on what I'm up to. Without venting too much, I've been dealing with the whole moving process and some personal things recently. We knew we were selling our house and moving, but after we sold the house we didn't know where we were going to end up permanently. Does that make sense? Right now we are renting and just trying to figure out our next move. Financially we can't just buy a house right away, so we could be here for the summer or up to a year. That means I would be going to a different high school this year and then a different high school again the next year. So it's a little stressful not knowing wether I should get comfortable and start unpacking boxes or if I should be ready to pick up and move again.

If we do stay here, I will be working and making plenty of videos this summer! I also haven't been able to make a video yet because we didn't have our internet set up until today. If we do move again I will continue with my channel but might not be able to start really making videos again for a little while.

Whichever way it goes, I hope that everything is happening for a reason and we will end up where we are supposed to be. Know that I am thinking about youtube and my subscribers all the time and I can't wait to be back in the swing of things!

Talk to you guys soon!

Review: YES To Tomatoes Acne Treatment

Hey Everyone!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a few days, just been super busy! I promise I'm getting to the end of my workload though and then I'll be bloggin and vloggin way too much, haha! Anyways, I wanted to do a review for you guys on the YES To Tomatoes Acne Treatment (roller ball.) 

Let me just start by saying that any company that is cruelty free, has natural ingredients and is reasonably priced is something I definitely want to try! YES To... meets- and exceeds that list. I had never tried this company before but had heard about their cucumber facial wipes, but never the tomatoes (acne) products. I saw the rollerball at ULTA for $10, and I was currently unhappy with my acne medicine, so I gave it a try. I am so glad I gave it a chance!

To use the product you simply unscrew the cap, roll over any blemishes and overnight-presto! They are either gone or have significantly improved. This product has done wonders for my blemishes and I no longer have to worry when I see a pimple pop up! What's funny is, it really does smell like tomatoes (or maybe I'm just imaging it...)

So if your looking for a new acne medication, try out YES To Tomatoes Roller Ball Acne Treatment!

Vlog Channel?

Hello Everyone,

I had a question for you all because I need your advice! Do you guys think I should make a vlog channel?
It would probably be unrelated to my beauty channel (in other words it's not a second channel for my beauty channel, just a vlog channel- still me! haha) 

So what do you guys think??

Do you guys have any channel name suggestions?

Bye guys!

Summer Beauty: Too Faced Summer Palette!

Hey Everyone!

Have you girls tried those Too Faced eye palettes? I almost bought the "Romantic" palette but then I changed my mind and got the Stila "In The Garden" palette. Well, I was in Ulta today walking past the Too Faced row when I stopped in my tracks to behold the new beauty that is the summer palette.

I think this palette is so cute and completely perfect for summer! Coral Crush, Mermaid and Toasted Coconut are so gorgeous! Let me know if you guys pick one up and how you like it!

Savvy Shopping: Summer Sales!

Summer Sales!

Hey everyone, I just wanted to tell you guys about some great sales going on right now.
So here are my top three picks to check out for summer apparel!

#1. Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale:

This sale comes around twice a year and can have great deals. Victoria's Secret has great workout wear (almost every girl is in LOVE with their yoga pants), their bathing suits are adorable but they can be way overpriced. So if you are a VS lover, now is the perfect time for great savings!

#2. Nine West

Nine West carries a lot of high end brand shoes and can sometimes have good sales. Right now they have some shoes marked 60% off and buy one get one 50% off. So if your looking for some cute espadrilles, color block heels or gladiator sandals for summer check out nine west. 

#3. Juicy Couture

Juicy doesn't often have sales, so when there are any sort of saving opportunities it's best to act fast.
Their new summer bathing suits have arrived and their sale items are an extra 30% off! (Also they have really cute shades!)
