Another needlepoint project

I found another needlepoint project in a closet and decided to finish this one first because it is smaller and has less colors. 9 colors total go into this needlepoint project.

My other project is huge and has many subtle color differences, I’m also running out of some of the colors, I got the set on sale because the package was open for the kit, so I’m wondering if some got lost in moving or people looking at it, so I have to save a yarn and get the colors to finish it.

So this one it is! Have you ever had that happen?? What did you do? Let me know.

Until next time,

Peter Thomas Roth: FirmX Peeling Gel Exfoliant

DSCN0499DSCN0498
Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel

  This product is a exfoliating gel that you put on to remove dry, scaly, dead skin. The packaging is very shiny so taking a picture of it sucks quite a bit. To use this product you put it on dry skin and rub it gently(Not hard)  in circular motions to roll away balled up bits of skin, it’s very weird, but kind of cool. then rinse away with water to get rid of the excess and bits of skin, and you have fresh, exfoliated skin. It’s great for anti-aging because of removing dead skin from wrinkles makes them less deep and  it smooths the skin for a more even skin appearance and it also prevents other wrinkles. it is a chemical exfoliant so I would be careful if you are super sensitive to things on your face, or break out very easily. It uses cellulose, glycerin, and hyaluronic acid to exfoliate and hydrate. I have acne-prone skin, and it is fine on my skin.

I got this small sample tube (15 ml/0.5 oz.) in a sephora skin sample set awhile back. I love pampering my skin, and trying new products and this shows you can find new awesome products all the time. I love the feeling of peeling away my dead skin, and revealing great skin underneath. It’s fun! at least for me. The full size of this product is 100ml./3.4 oz for 48.00$

You can find it at:

~ Sephora stores~  ~ sephora.com~ ~ http://www.peterthomasroth.com/p-272-firmx-peeling-gel.aspx ~  or you can google the product for places and more info.

Exfoliate away girls,

It’s time for this month’s Ipsy bag… I got 5 items and the teal quilted bag with the theme Beauty Candy.

~The Bag~

The bag is a greenish blue teal color (looks darker then the pictures) with square quilting on it. The zipper is on the side near the top, not exactly on top. I actually really really like the bag this month! It’s Cute!

~The Items~

~ Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths~

DSCN0511

These cleansing cloths have white willow and cucumber extract to balance and revive stressed skin/acne prone skin. The cloths foam a bit when rubbing on your skin, they are soaked in the cleansing solution, and is great for removing makeup or refreshing your skin between washes. They smell soo good to me! it’s like floral and clean. I really like these. A full size is 30 wipes for 15.00$ and I would spend the money on them if I had it.

~ Doll 10  H2Glo Highlighter/Illuminator in Champagne~

DSCN0514 DSCN0515

This highlighter is like a creme highlighter, It is a subtle highlighter that is a nude tanish color. weirdly it smells like some lipgloss I had awhile back. This is great for summer months because it stays put and probably wont make you look oily.

~ City Color Be Matte Lipstick~

DSCN0513 DSCN0517
This lipstick is matte in texture, and is a nude brick colored brownish color. The color is called cappuccino, and it reminds me of the current 90’s lipstick trend (“Kylie Jenner” lip trend) going around.

~ Model Co. Volumeyes mascara~

DSCN0512

This is a normal brush volumizing mascara in a black color. I haven’t tried it yet but will after I hit bottom on my other mascara. I hope I like it!

~ Figs&Rouge Mango Mandarin Hand Cream~

DSCN051610710898_10154744734475383_4643042196524244113_n

This hand cream is a lightweight, non-greasy but moisturizing hand and cuticle cream. The smell is amazing, it smells like creamcicles. Mango and Mandarin. I’m in love with this product! It is also from the UK. Love it!

I love 3 of the 5 products in this bag so far, i’m gonna play with some of them and maybe post reviews later. what did you get in your ipsy bag? anything good? let me know. comment below.

Impress Press on Manicure in Holla

These are the impress nails in Holla. The size of the nails are on the short size, which is perfect for me. The pattern on the nails is a lace pattern with roses. The colors are a metallic pink/mauve with the designs in black. You get 24 nails in the pack and 12 sizes so you can find one that fits great.
Kiss Nail Artist 3D Charms

I got a pack of the kiss 3d charms and jewels with rhinestones and little plastic decorations like a butterfly and a little cake. It comes with a little tube of nail glue to adhere the charms on the nails. There is multiple sizes of charms and rhinestones ranging from very small to larger. These will be fun to play with soon.

 Kiss Nail Artist Metallic Accents 

I also got a pack of metal studs and accents to put on your nails for snazzy nail art. It has long rectangular studs, small round studs, and stars. They also have some studs in colors like red, blue and copper. These will be fun to play with later on for jazzing up your normal nail polish.

I cannot wait to try these products when I have the time to plan a cool manicure. I will probably wear the press on nails for Halloween to give me a little festive spirit, even though I have no costume and no where to go for Halloween. I will do a post when I do a manicure to show what I did and what I used. I love nail art!

Stay tuned for more nail art fun!

Softcup menstrual cups

the soft up menstrual cup
Are you tired of sitting in liquid with pads during your period? Are you sick of tampons drying you out after your period? Sick of changing menstrual products every 4-5 hours? The softcup menstrual cup is for you! It doesn’t hurt, and is a greener way to have your period.

IMG_0297.JPG

IMG_0296.JPG

The softcup is a cup that sits at the base of your cervix to collect menstrual blood in a toxic free, cleaner way to have your period. It is folded in half and inserted into the vagina and locks in around your cervix to collect your period. Not only is it toxic shock free, reuseable, easy to use, but it is non drying, and a safer and greener way to have your periods. You can also wear the cup up to 12 hrs at a time with no leaks!!! You can wear it swimming, doing sports, overnight for long periods and even during sex.

To take the cup out you very carefully put your finger under the rubber ring of the cup and pull off of the cervix and out of the vagina to dump the cup out. It is great for knowing your cycle and knowing your body better. You can wash the cup with hot water and antibacterial soap and towel dry and put back in for the remainder of your cycle.

I’ve been using these for 4+ years. I love them to death and will not go back to tampons and pads. I even thought about getting a real menstrual cup for periods for the rest of my life. I would recommend these over any other product anytime. It is great for heavy and light periods and can get a bit messy, but not as much as pads and leaking and such. I Will Not Go Back Ever!! love It So.

For more info or to buy you can go to http://www.softcup.com , Google, Amazon, or eBay to look up products and prices. It was 6.00$ for a 12 pack of cups. If you would like to recommend cups or anything please don’t hesitate to email me or comment.
Thanks,
