Hi beauties!  I was so excited to receive these Konjac sponges from Konjac Natural Care.  One for me…and one for you!  We both win.  At the end of the review, please enter the giveaway.  Since I am currently obsessed with green tea, that’s the one I chose for myself.  I love the Konjac Green Tea Body Wave Sponge.  I know it’s for the body, but I used it only on my face for the first few days then I used it solely on my body.  Go here to read more details and purchasing information.

Pros: it’s natural, gentle, affordable and long lasting.  My skin responded well to it and I found it soothing.  I have sensitive skin so was hesitant but committed to the review.  Besides, it is all natural so I went for it, safe enough for a baby they say. I went on to buy a charcoal one for my daughter with oily skin.

Cons: none.

March Makeup

beauty blogger, makeup junkie

March makeup…maybe?  One of my favorite followers on Instagram, thatcrazy8, shared what she going to reach for in March. I told her I’d share mine, you know as a beauty blogger (or makeup junkie) you acquire a lot of makeup. I do try to rotate my products so I get to use/try them all. Since January, however, I’ve been stuck on my January and February favorites.

Soooo, in response to thatcrazy8, I’m hoping to go back to using my MAC Paint Pots as primer, pink and purples lip glosses and the 2 eyeshadow palettes in the picture. I’ve been moving away from lipstick for some reason…

Do you have anything you’re hoping to use more in your makeup stash this month?

What’s In My Bag With Tori

Tori, my wonderfully crazy MUA turned friend came over to visit and we decided to do a What’s In My Bag video.  She had never done one before and I thought it’d be fun to see what she’s lugging around.  Quite an interesting load…she said her bag was boring inside!  She is so crazy.  Enjoy the video and leave us a comment telling us your favorite part. xx, Pascha

Happiness

Happiness. This quote has been with me since I first saw it…years now.  I don’t remember where I saw it but I must not have had something to write with because I typed it in my notes. The trials and tribulations of my past few years made me want to cling to anything that resonated with being happy. While I still struggle with anxiety and depression (much much better) I truly, truly believe that happiness is a state of mind one must purposely choose. Enjoy this beautiful, beautiful quote by Esther Hicks.

Please leave your thought in the comments area. xx, Pascha

This Manicure Monday I am in love with this deep berry color by Patricia Yankee. Sadly this bottle is almost empty, time to reorder. Have you tried any of her polishes? Great formula that dries evenly and quickly. Her polishes can be ordered online here.

Old Factory Aromatherapy Candle Review

Old Factory Candle, Spa Day, aromatherapy, aromatherapy candle, relaxationCandles soothe me and I was very happy to review these aromatherapy candles from Old Factory Candle.  When I chose the Spa Day set I did not realize that it would be a set of three candles.  Note to self: pay attention.  The Spa Day set contains the following three scents: Lemongrass, Green Tea and Cucumber.  Listennnnnn, all of them individually smell clean and fresh.  I have never burned candles as part of a set.

They burned evenly with a light, fragrant scent. Smells so GOOD in my room right now! I love that they burn neatly, making it possible to actually finish the entire candle (the wick isn’t lost in the wax).Old Factory Candle, Spa Day, aromatherapy, aromatherapy candle, relaxation

The set that I chose made me feel relaxed, I burned them as I played around at my makeup vanity.  Green Tea my favorite scent.  I am going to move them to my nightstand.  You can find them exclusively here and they would make a great gift!
