Lip Product Organization/Declutter Summer 2017

Hey Friends! Today I’ll be sharing with you my lip product organization and recent lip declutter (you can read about my other lip declutter here). This post has been a long time coming, but I just wanted it to be as updated as possible. For me the cycle of decluttering and acquiring never really ends, it just takes breaks. I don’t think I’ll be doing either for a while (at least with lip products) so I figured now would be a great time to share!

What I’ve Learned after a Year of Blogging!

A Year of Blogging
A Year of Blogging
Hi everyone! Before I do another beauty review, empties post or general ramble, I had to acknowledge that it’s been one year since I started BeautyLifeMom. I didn’t know exactly what to expect after a year or what I thought I’d accomplish in that time, but here we are! Now that I have a year under my belt, I can talk a little more extensively about what I’ve learned, some things I’ve experienced, and areas where I’d like to grow.

Greetings, Friends! Today I want to share with you my first VoxBox! I joined Influenster not too long ago and was excited to receive the Dasiy Voxbox  shortly after.  Of course I have to disclaim that I received all of these products free for testing purposes-all my own opinion (I’m an honest gal after all)-So let’s go through the products!

Liebster Award Part 2!

 

Liebster Award

Hey everyone! I had done the Liebster Award tag last September and recently was tagged again by three awesome bloggers, Alexandra, Jonia, and Enyiie– Thanks so much ladies! I’m doing it again because heck, nothing wrong with an update. Plus their questions were too good so I couldn’t pass them up (I did all 3 sets).

I’m going to break some rules here and instead of tagging people this time around (or who knows, maybe I will), I’m going to invite anyone who hasn’t gotten a chance to do this to do it. Or even if you already did the Liebster and feel like doing an update, go for it! I really love reading facts about anyone so definitely let me know if you do this tag!

Mini Life Update: My Short Break, Why I Blog, Unicorn Frappucinos.

Hey Guys! I haven’t published a post in 10 11 days now which for me is a while. Give or take, I try to post once a week and if I’m really feelin’ it, twice a week. So I guess it hasn’t been been that long, but longer than usual for me. After getting some time away, I felt like doing a non-beauty post and just say what’s up.

Does It Work: Johnson’s Baby Wash for the Face?

Hey Everyone! Here I am today with another Does it Work hack report! I recently tried fixing broken makeup with rubbing alcohol, and now I want to share my experience using baby wash as as face wash- something I’ve been seeing around and was curious, albeit a bit uncertain. I don’t know about you, but any products meant for the body just seems off limits for the face. I have used Dove bar soap on my face at one point, but it wasn’t anything amazing and stopped there.

Now I think people actually use actual baby shampoo as a face wash as well which I haven’t really tried, so keep in mind that I used the head-to-toe wash and not their actual baby shampoo so I can’t make any claims on that.

Anyway, people have been using Johnson’s Head-to-Toe baby wash as a facial cleanser, claim it works really well and is supposed to be great for sensitive skin. I guess it would make sense-if it’s gentle enough to use on a baby’s sensitive skin, what harm could it do to an adult? Some have even said it changed their skin drastically. Again, stuff I was definitely skeptical about and I needed to have my own proof. Let’s get into some info!

This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup

This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup
This Time Next Year Tag and 2017 Goal Checkup
Welcome back! I was recently tagged to do the “This Time Next Year” post by one of my blogging pals, Nicky Ashleigh. And since March seems like a good time to revisit the goals I set for myself back in January, I thought why not combine the two? It’s been a while since I’ve done a tag post but I enjoy them! I’m not big on setting lots of crazy goals for myself but I think it’s healthy to think of things you want to change or do more (or less) of once in a while! I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about goals lately, so this couldn’t have come at a better time.

Product Toss/Declutter: Part 3

Product Declutter/Toss
Product Declutter
Greetings all! March is marching on as I like to say, and here I am back in toss-out mode! I have this endless fascination with decluttering or purging stuff. Last summer I did a major eyeshadow declutter and lip product declutter, and I’m at it again. I’m going through my house little by little and getting rid of stuff in different categories. It’s one of those things that’s an ongoing process- something I really like to do once in a while to keep things neat and updated.

I’ve definitely outgrown products and some are just no longer functional, and for me it’s just finding the time to sort everything out. Sometimes I’ll get rid of a bunch of things at once, other times it’s more spontaneous or random.  I always find it interesting that when it comes to some things, one moment it’s so hard to let go then all of a sudden you’re just ready and it needs to be out of your life. At least that’s how it is for me!

Fixing Broken Makeup With Alcohol-Does it Work?!

Hello, Beauts! So today’s post is brought to you by the unfortunate makeup mishap- shattered powder makeup. Cue the slo-mo “NOOOO!!!!”. I’m sure most of you have been there at some point! While I’m not one to really care too much about using a broken shadow or blush, it can get messy and quite frankly looks…crappy. And being careful to not get it everywhere is too much work. So here I wanted to share my experience of fixing a broken shadow by using the rubbing alcohol method. This method is pretty popular and by no means new-I just felt like playing around to see if it would actually work.

What I’m looking forward to in 2017!

Goals for 2017
2017 Goals
Greetings, Beauts! Welcome to 2017!  We’re two weeks into January and I feel a little late to the resolutions game-at least it feels that way. But I guess that’s life for ya! Anyway, 2017 may just be another year or it may not be, but I’d like to think each year holds some new and cool things even if they aren’t all super dramatic. And is it just me or do the years seem to be blending together more and more?! 

This year, as with any, questions may be answered and questions may arise. What will get sorted out? How much will things remain the same or change? Will I still be wearing this sweater next winter? Ahh. Guess we will have to wait and see!

I don’t typically use the word “resolutionfor my goals just because I’ll never stick with it once that label is thrown on there. Psychological or not, I tend to curse myself that way based on experience. But no matter what you call it, wanting to be a better you or revising aspects of your life is a good thing and can be done at any time! January just seems to be that natural time for me and many to reset things on a more intentional level.

I like thinking of what is coming up or things I’d like to maybe try each upcoming year, but before I get into all of that I want to give a shout out to my blogger friend Jayher New Year’s post inspired me to get my own thoughts down on resolutions! Go give it a read! Anyway, here are some things I am looking forward to in 2017!
