Memorial Hermann Park


Park Visit

Beautiful Waterfall

Good day everyone. I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and had a safe Halloween. So many new launches coming during the Holidays with the Holiday sets. I have some exciting news to share with you. I have been working with exciting brands and discovering my favorite brands.

I had an amazing time at my favorite park the other day. The weather was beautiful and a nice cool breeze. The gardens were gorgeous and the waterfalls were Peaceful. 

I wanted to start this blog with some words of wisdom. Cherish those that you have and learn to forgive and not hold onto anger or hate. You will never know when you will lose them and you want to look back at the times that you were able to spend with them. Not the times that you missed because you couldn't forgive. Take risks and follow your dreams. Learn to say yes and put yourself out there or you will never be discovered.

Charlotte Tilbury Nudegasm Review
Charlotte Tilbury soft sculpt Nudegasm color

The colors, the design and glow is what attracted me to this product. I knew I must add this palette to my Charlotte Tilbury makeup Collection. This Palette has four colors and three different textures. There's a peachy glow, golden glow, and two bronze shades (one good for contour). Nudegasm has four shades: multi glow, super glow, soft sculpt and super sculpt. The formula is blendable and glowing. The texture of the contour creates a contour that is effortless. 

Information from Sephora.com

"What Else You Need to Know: This versatile and multidimensional palette will illuminate skin from every angle. It features four luminous, translucent textures to enhance, not conceal, your natural beauty. Super Glow is a soft champagne-gold shade with a lustrous, wet-shine texture to light up the eyes and illuminate the complexion. Multi Glow is a multidimensional golden-peach shade with a satin finish to enhance the sparkle of the eyes and create the illusion of health on the cheeks. Soft Sculpt is a natural-looking, sandy-taupe shade that helps sculpt, smoke, and blur imperfections in a hybrid formula for a creamy, luminous matte finish. Super Sculpt is a rich umber shade that creates the effect of a superstar bone structure and natural-looking definition on the eyes, in a hybrid formula for a creamy, luminous matte finish."

What I love about Charlotte Tilbury beauty products is that they are versatile and long lasting. The pretty packaging holds beauty products that deliver long lasting results. The colors can range from a soft neutral to bold colors.

factor five face serum

I was recently introduced to FactorFive Regenerative face serum. I have been testing it out for over a month. I have been adding this serum as part of my skincare rotation. It smells so great. It absorbs into my skin and soothes my skin. The texture is a clear lightweight serum that absorbs into my skin. My first time experience is that I noticed that the texture is very lightweight. It feels like there is nothing there. It blends into my face perfectly. There is no greasy feeling to it. My moisturize seems to be more hydrating after using this and the moisturizer absorbs and feels like it last longer. I wake up to more hydrated skin.

This toner is refreshing and provides a deeper cleanse to my face. It feels refreshing and cooling. You can put it in the fridge to get an even cooling effect during the hot days.
