BH Cosmetics/Shaaanxo Eyeshadow & Lipstick Palette + Swatches

tgio shaaanxo palette 1

BH Cosmetics is one of my all time favorite makeup brands ever! Like most beauty lovers, I love watching beauty videos and tutorials on YouTube. There are only a few vloggers that I trust and will religiously watch their videos and my favorite one is Shaaanxo. When I found out that she was having a collaboration with BH Cosmetics, I knew I had to have it. This product is so unique because not only does it include 9 eyeshadows, but…

Bare Minerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo

Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo

Although I do love highlighter, I always opt for a subdued and more natural look when it comes to my highlight. As much as I can appreciate a really bright and glowy highlight, I just don’t see myself wearing it in real life.  I’ve had my eye on the Hourglass highlighters because I love how subtle they are while still being very pretty. I swatch them every time I go to Sephora, but couldn’t bring myself to buy one yet.…

Things That Made Me Happy (13)

things that made me happy 13

 I ended up taking a bit of an unexpected blog break last week, which was actually really nice. I had been posting 4-5 times a week on this blog and 3-4 times a week on my book blog so having that break was great. I wasn’t planning on a break, but since school was so busy for my kids since it was the last week and they had events planned every day, I didn’t have much time to plan or set…

10 Things I’m Looking Forward To In My 30’s

why im excited about turning 30

For the last few years, people have been telling me how devastated they were when they turned 30 and how it will probably hit me hard too. I finally turned 30 yesterday and I have to say that I’m actually pretty damn excited about entering my 30’s. Although I’ve officially been an adult for a while now and I have two kids (9 and 6 year olds) and I have a house and a car and all that other adult stuff,…

 I had a fun week and hope everyone else did too! I’m still enjoying my time alone although I do get a little bit bored. I’ve been watching some more tv shows and movies, which I don’t really do. I’m also really excited that this week is finally the last week of school for my girls even though this week is full of activities for both of them. Since they go to different schools, even though they are right next…

My Go-To 5 Minute Makeup Look

my 5 minute makeup look

As much as I love being able to take my time in applying my makeup and trying new looks or new products, I do love being able to put on my makeup quickly and easily if I need to. With the warmer weather, I’ve been really lazy when it comes to my makeup, especially when it comes to applying eyeliner.  Before, I always used to wear eyeliner because I felt like my eyes looked really small without it. I also…

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Hispanic mother’s out there!

Pregnancy, birth, taking care of a newborn and trying…

The first week of May was definitely different and interesting and weird and fun all wrapped in one.  It was my first week staying home alone and after cleaning my whole house at the beginning of the week, I wasn’t sure what else to do with myself for the rest of the days.  As nice as it was to have some time to myself, I was also a little bit bored. I found myself talking to myself a lot since…

My Favorite Workouts (No Gym Required)

My Favorite Workouts (No Gym Required)

No matter how much I try to make it to the gym, I always seem to find an excuse to not go. I have a really great gym less than 5 minutes away from my house, and although I have the baby with me 4 days a week, I really have no excuse to not go when he’s off on Tuesdays or the weekends. I have finally accepted that the gym is just not for me. I am better motivated…

NEW Products from Wet n’ Wild + Swatches

tgio wetnwild new

Wet n’ Wild always seems to be such an enigma of a brand for me. They are like the unicorn of makeup, I know the products exists but they are so hard to actually get your hands on.  The products that I have tried, I have absolutely loved, but I can’t seem to ever find almost every other product that I want to try from them. The liquid eyeliner everyone raves about? I’ve never ever seen it? The concealer that…
