My Ultimate Face Mask!

My Ultimate Face Mask!

Hello everyone… I hope all is well of course. You all are probably wondering where in the world I’ve been! Well, I have decided to go back to college. This whole summer has been dedicated to getting ready for that, and just having fun. I don’t like the fact that my blog took a back seat for awhile, but unfortunately it has.

Enough with the updates, I have an exciting experience to share with everyone! A little back story, at the beginning of middle school I started getting migraines. (They are a family trait I wish I never got) One day my mom took me to The Body Shop and we bought a cooling face mask just to try…. It worked wonders! Fast forward twelve years (Yes twelve!), my beloved mask has started to lose its magic. A lot of the blue gel inside has dissipated. IMG_3601

Well, one night I was browsing The Body Shop website and what did I find?!? The same mask in PINK! (My favorite color btw) I could have cried, twelve years later and I find a new one? Crazy! But wait its only $4.80? With FREE SHIPPING? This must be a joke… NOPE!

This mask is a life saver, it helps with a number of things:
-Puffy eyes
-Migraines/Headaches
-Hot days to cool off

It stays pretty cool on its own but you can place it in the freezer for a bit to get cold. It has a strap with velcro. I’m just in love with this mask honestly, there are so many good things I could say about it. I mean you have to love something to buy it twice.

Question of the day- Do you like the body shop? Do you have a favorite product you live by?Victorias Blog Signature

Spa Days With My Mama

Spa Days With My Mama

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well! Today is a super exciting blog post because I will be joined by my mother Jen.

A little back story; my mom is definitely the one who started my beauty craze. I remember laying in her lap as she applied a very “bold” smokey eye, with EYELINER, after I would beg her! She used an Almay trio palette for green eyes. I was probably around 12 years old (2006-ish). The first time I walked out and my dad saw me he practically died! I remember him telling my mom that I was not allowed to leave the house… then my mother said “Roland she would never leave the house with that much makeup”. Little did they know that I would leave the house years later with a pound of it on my face! spa2

Recently I purchased a jar of the Dr. Brandt Magnetight Age Defying Magnetic Mask. I decided that I would use it on my mom, she deserves a little TLC every once in awhile. I would say her skin has an oily t-zone and is very dry around the edges. I’M NOT SAYING HER SKIN IS AGING…. So anyways, I asked her a few questions while she was wearing the mask and after! spa1

First question: How do you like the application? “Its super easy, anyone could do it.” -Mama

How does the mask feel on your skin? “It feels like there is nothing on my face. It’s smooth!”-Mama

How does it smell? “It smells like the tea we brew… not like the Wawa tea but the good kind. Like green tea.”-Mama

How does it feel to remove the mask with a magnet? “Really cool! It feels like light tickles.”-Mama

How does your skin feel afterwards? “Like fake skin.. You know what I mean?”- Mama “Yeah mom I know what you mean.” -Me

How does your skin look afterwards? “The pores are cleaned out! Look at my nose Vic.” -Mama (Presses nose in my face) “Yeah looks good.”-Me

She gives it a 9/10. Mom was so impressed by the mask, she’s still most likely admiring herself.

The mask itself is $24.00 for a travel size. It has about three applications.

If you have any questions or concerns please comment below. Lets Chat!

Question of the day?- Does anyone have any good mask recommendations? For Mom or me? Let me know!

xoxo, Victoria & Mom

 

Prom For The Realist 

High schoolers, you are now getting ready for PROM! Yes, it’s that time of year and things can be stressful but don’t you worry I’m going to put things in perspective.

First things first: Having to have a date is a complete myth. You do not need to go with anyone. I went solo to my senior prom and had a blast!

Second: You do NOT need to spend a fortune on your look. There is a ton of really cool ways to look unique and fashionable, that don’t have to leave you broke and stressed!

Lets break down your needs and your to-dos:

Dress– Try second hand shops or clearance racks. It’s super fun to go dress hunting! Plus, who wants to go in a dress that everyone else has.

Tux– Honestly a sports coat and slacks can be just as great as a tux! Your don’t have to follow all the 1950s rules of dances (You so can though!). Just with dresses try alternative means as well as going to a tuxedo rental store.

Shoes– Guess what? There is more to the shoe game then just heels! My sister wore toms to her prom and looked extremely cute and edgy! Oh and a quick note your going to be ditching those shoes as soon as the music comes on anyways!tom1

Jewelry (optional)- Ladies and gents wearing gaudy bling is out. If your dress is the star of the show, wear simple pieces!

Hair– Like I said keep it simple! Don’t over do it on the products. Remember hairspray is to help hold not make your “do” rock hard! Trust me people can tell! sarah 1

Makeup-Simple chic makeup is just as great/ maybe even better than extreme colors and crazy contouring.

Nails– It is just as much fun painting your nails as it is going to the salon to get a full set! I think both can be just as beautiful as the other!prom sister

Going to get your hair and makeup done is a really good thing to do if you can’t do it yourself. But I think having a get ready party and having your friends come over to help is a great way to have fun and just relax!

Remember prom is suppose to be fun! Don’t worry about others and don’t forget that this is a right of passage! This is for you, so have fun and look how you want to look!

These photos are from my little sisters junior prom so ill be posting a hair and makeup post similar to the ones in the pictures, don’t forget to watch out for those! If you have any questions or need advice let me know!

Question of the day-what does/did your prom dress look like?

Comment below we will chat!

xoxo, Victoria
