|| kinda happy that they kept the same design for the iPhone 8+ as the iPhone 7+ but kinda annoyed because they look the same? At least I can reuse my cases from last year. @esrfun
The pink sequence/glitter case is a great dupe for the casemate one and it’s under $20 CAD with shipping & import fees (its on sale atm!) but the only thing I don’t like about the case is that a couple of the sequence already fell off? Other than that the case is really nice, but the marble one is my favourite since I’m hella basic 😅 All of their cases are pretty cheap so if you’re looking for iPhones or Samsung cases, totally recommend you checking them out! @esrfun#esrcase#esrfun#iphone8plus#iphonecase#cases#newcases#phonecase#phonecases#iphone
Our spunky Chewy the Dachschund Shih Tzu mix dog's skin is pretty sensitive, we deal with his skin inflammation and irritation issues often.
I love keeping tea tree oil and aloe vera gel on hand for their skin healing properties, so it's great having them combined in this pet shampoo by @calilylife. It is non toxic, paraben, phthalate free!
His skin was pretty unhappy looking after getting a haircut. I feel like the shampoo was gentle and soothing. He usually scratches himself to a point of inflaming his skin...not this time around. Pretty surprised about that to be honest. I guess we are onto something 🤔
It comes in a heaping 32 oz bottle. I love the mild, pleasant scent. Consistency is neither thick or too runny, it's just right. It stayed put in the area I squeezed it in & lathered easily without going overboard. We avoid the ones that lather too much, as they are not very useful while trying to keep shampoo off the face & rinse it etc.
It can also be used on cats!
If you want to give it a try, here is where I got mine :

So even though Mother Nature is confused this year and we’ve yet to get any snow, it’s still been in the teens each morning so I was super excited when I got to try two beanies from a company called CacheAlaska. My boyfriend, Corey, was nice enough to help model too! In this review I’ll be telling you about one of the beanies - a hand knit wool style with a snowflake design.
The cap is very soft and not itchy like other wool beanies I’ve tried. The material is stretchy and fit both mine and Corey’s head. The design and color scheme also makes this a great unisex item. We got the black/grey beanie but they also have a cream/light brown and a white/blue option.
Bring that it’s been so chilly, I also really love that there’s a warmer sewn into the inside of the beanie. It helps to hold in body head and it’s made from a super soft fleece. It also helps to keep your head dry while skiing and hiking.
The hat was a bit snug for Corey when we first got it, but after stretching it out a little it fits great on both of us. It comes down far enough to keep our ears and forehead toasty warm in the chilly mornings.
CacheAlaska is based in Alaska and their items are designed for that climate so you k ow they’ll be warm and durable. You can get one of these awesome hand knit beanies for $24.95 by following this link:
Missha paraffin treatment foot mask👣
Directions: wash and dry your feet. Open the package and separate the masks. Stick your feet into each sock and secure with included sticker. Leave on for 15 minutes. Rub in remaining essence after removal.
These days my feet are pretty dry so I wanted to try this mask finally. My feet felt really cold the entire time and to be honest, the cold feeling makes me feel uncomfortable. There isnt really any smell or anything. After removal though, my feet were super soft and looked so much healthier. I'm not sure if I would buy it again or not, but I'm definitely interested in trying the peeling foot masks as I have some pretty bad dry feet.
It’s so hard to shop for boys... so I’d thought I’d share what I have come up with for this year! @longchamp garment bag is the main course with stocking stuffer sides of a @corkcicle tumbler, a portable power bank, fun dress socks, @rodanfields eye brightening complex and @burtsbees chapstick that I’m obsessed with. We used to be that couple that never spent money on each other but the longer we are married.. and the more kids we have... the more I see it as a way to show each other that we were thinking about the other person and value it as a love language. It’s funny how your feelings on certain things change through marriage. I used to think “who wastes money on flowers??” And I just told Brent the other day, “If you bought me flowers every once in a while, I wouldn’t hate it...” 😂 Anyway, I can’t wait for Christmas morning!
This @myhavtorn hand cream was gifted to me recently, and has been a lifesaver for dry hands, face and lips while out and about. I keep it in my purse at all times, and am always so relived when I remember it’s there. It’s very nourishing feeling, and has a great all natural-y smell. Would love to explore this brand a little more!
@bubblebabez brush me off soap // my absolute fav!! rate 10/10
I love this soap to wash my beauty blender and brushes! It’s made with all organic ingredients so no need to worry about any harsh chemicals damaging your brushes!!! I use this soap daily to wash my beauty blender. No matter how dirty my beauty blender is, this soap still manages to make my sponge spotless! Looks brand new after cleaning. And the scent of this soap is amazingggg 😍 There are 2 different sizes and types of brush me off soap. There is a jumbo size ($24.99) and a mini size($14.99). There is the original brush me off soap and a vegan version. There are also refill options of either size/type of soap when you run out! The price is spot on and worth every penny! I used to use the original beauty blender soap bar but it does not compare at all the brush me off soap. Plus the beauty blender soap bar contains so many chemicals that can be very irritating to the skin and can be very harsh on your brushes and cause them to break apart. You can purchase this from @bubblebabez!!

One of my new favorite products, that I've been taking to help fight off the winter lull is the @hempmedspx Dixie Botanicals Kicks Chocolate Energy Chews. Since I’ve received this product, I have been taking it every single morning as a way to help wake me up and start my day. This product is a blend of pure CBD hemp oil, energizing caffeine, and B vitamins in a fun low-calorie chocolate chew. To be specific, each chew contains 5 mg of CBD and 100mg of caffeine. There are 30 chews per jar and each chew is only 20 calories. This is a product that I really like. The flavor is great and it’s like having a cup of coffee in the morning without having to brew it and all the sugar. Plus the added bonus that it contains CBD which just seems to start my day off great.
It’s been a whirlwind weekend, as only the last full weekend before Christmas can be. Between trying to conquer a giant to-do list, a busy schedule and also conquering a family-wide cold epidemic complete with toddler fever, I found my brain to be incapable of generating complete thoughts and therefore, assessing and writing any type of thoughtful review was impossible.
The good news is that today, I got some solo Christmas shopping time and like a moth to a flame, I was drawn to the Bath & Beauty section of TJ Maxx. And what to my wandering eyes should appear but miniature @olehenriksen bottles and other products to keep my skin clear. I’ll digress from my ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas schtick to emphasize my genuine delight in today’s TJ Maxx mini haul. I knew getting decent B&B products was possible there, but I was really impressed by their inventory today
I’m stoked to give each of these a try (and review). We’re traveling to be with my family later this week and these lil Ole Henriksen items will be perfect for a lil holiday glow while on the road. I’m also a big fan of @avalonorganics products so when I spotted this anti wrinkle oil cleanser, I did a wee victory dance. •
I will do my very best to get some reviews posted this week. My to do list will certainly keep me busy, but I’m hoping I can center my brain just enough to get some writing done.

Super quick review of this lipstick is up on the blog! #linkinbio! It's the @clinique Liquid Matte Lip Pop in 01 Cake Pop.
Have you tried this line of lipsticks?
SPOILER ALERT: I don't like it and will probably destash it when I go through my collection at the end of the year...
🍓🍵💕🍓 #Sleepingpacks r one of my favorite kind of #masks - they r being applied at the end of our #dailyroutine, AKA, they r n extra boost of moisture to the skin. As a #dryskin girl I need it n I love it (especially during winter times) 🍓🍵💕🍓
🍓🍵💕🍓 This #StrawberryBubbleTea#SleepingPack by @etudehouseofficial is one of my favorites - Why? Well... 🍓🍵💕🍓
💁 PACKAGING= It's of the most adorable ways to pack a simple product. I wish western cosmetic brands would b inspired by #Kbeauty brands - life would have been so much nicer 💗 The mask actually looks like a cup of strawberry bubble tea (with REAL BUBBLES & a tiny spoon) Cute n practical
💁 CLAIMS= This mask clears the skin & contributes to its #vitality overnight due to the #strawberryextract & especially those extra #moisturecapsule#bubbles •
💁 HOW TO USE THIS MASK? 🔽 Using the spoon, dispense gel & 1-2 bubbles onto the palm of ur hand 🔼 Gently rupture the bubbles with the spoon onto the palm & mix (with ur fingers) them with the gel 🔽 Apply on ur skin in a massaging motion to promote absorption into the skin 🔼 Leave the mask overnight 🔽 Wash off the next morning with lukewarm water (Continue with ur daily routine)
💁 OVERALL, eventhough my skin is dry n I tend to prefer much more heavier masks, for some reason this light weighted strawberry gel is great for my skin! The next morning I usually wake up with glowing skin. However, I have a few reservations:
🔽 I'm not a huge fan of the SCENT ➡ I find that it's too artificial (but maybe that's just ME)
🔼 It's quite hard to rupture those cute moisture bubbles. They r a great gimmick, but I'm not so sure how much they REALLY add to the efficiency of the mask (I'd rather have a smooth texture)
🍓🍵💕🍓 Love this product n I'd repurchase it - preferabl in some sort of a sale 🙌 lol 🍓🍵💕🍓

Portable/mini tripods are your friend. Even professionals with steady hands who have been in the game for a while, typically prefer to use a tripod to secure the shot. Even if you’re producing a quick #MobileVideo, toss your phone on the tripod, stand, or lean it up against a set of books to avoid having your editor do a ton of post production work (unless the shaky look is what you’re going for.

My wash day with @mellaninn_complex 😍😍😍! ✨ 1. I actually let the BerriLiscious Co-Wash sit in my hair covered with a bag for about 15 minutes before shampooing! While shampooing I finger detangled my hair in four sections. It cuts down on the hair loss!
✨ Ingredients - 💜H2O, castor oil, aloe vera gel, shae butter, mango butter, coconut butter, lecithin, tea tree oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, essential oils, extracts & love! ✨✨ 2. BerriLiscious Leave-In - I love this Leave in, it’s lighter than other leave ins that I’ve used! But it works well on it’s own or with other brands as all of @mellaninn_complex products do! I also finger detangled my hair after applying the Leave In! ✨✨ Ingredients - H2O (y’all know I love that H2O), castor oil, aloe vera gel, shae butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, more great ingredients!!!!!! ✨✨✨ 3. Rosemary Lavender Oil - I only used a small amount! As with all the Mella’Ninn Complex products you only need a little! But this amazing smelling oil was awesome as a scalp massage 💆🏾! I near bout fell asleep! ✨✨✨ Ingredients - Olive Oil, Tea tree oil, Avocado oil, Sweet almond oil, Lavender essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, sunflower essential oil , rosemary essential oil & love 💗. ✨✨✨✨ 4. Hair Pudding - You only need a bit! I use this on my sons hair nearly everyday 😍! I applied it using praying hands then finger detangled! It has a light scent & looks like cream cheese frosting! ✨✨✨✨ Ingredients - Aloe Vera Gel, Shae butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, etc & always love! 😍. This entire line smells amazing and is so easy to use! My hair is always soft and manageable after using @mellaninn_complex haircare! The second picture is of my protective style! Yes I tried another twist out and I even put on some raspberry ice lippie on! Use Code melcomshae25 for 25% off @mellaninn_complex products! #naturalista#brownbeauty#naturalhairloves#naturalhaircare
Sneak peak of me painting ☺️
Used here is @escoda_brushes top of the line Reserva travel brush. “Considered the elite hair for watercolor, Escoda selects only the best Kolinsky male sable hair for this brush. Points perfectly and has an extraordinary capacity to retain liquids.”
As far as travel brushes go, they look great! That’s undeniable 😆 Sure, waterbrushes can get the job done, but obviously you can’t do much stroke variations using them and your painting will just not look as vibrant. Compared to waterbrushes, Escoda Travel brushes retain more water, absorb more paint and hold their nice sharp point way better. The Reserva line in particular are more springy as well. Good for washes and fine detail painting.
Lastly, they feel great too. Some may find the bigger sizes a bit heavy, but I personally like the weight. It becomes an extension of my arm when I paint. It feels premium!
I’ve used both Reserva and Optimo and loved them both. You can’t really go wrong with either. ❤️
