Wide Awake at 152am…

I ended up making stupid decisions and I’m charging my electronics/gadgets right now. Found out it’s going to take like another hour to charge. Thought I’d tell you I may have found my favorite male friend/soulmate. Remember how I said all I really want from a guy I date from this point on was someone who wanted to check up on me to make sure I didn’t die? Well that just happened. It melted my heart.

As for customer service…has anyone noticed how nice the ladies at the Sephora in the JCP locations are compared to the larger sephora stores because I noticed.¬† I probably talked about my friend who used to work at the sephora inside the JCP she was like if I could go back–so I’m guessing it was a great experience. People around me told me they were hiring and I was like “but what if I end up buying everything I don’t need.” The response from my friends and family were “on a second thought don’t.”


Review: French Girl Organics Lumiere rose doree shimmer oil

I’ve been using this twice a day the scent is light and lovely and the color is pretty. You can’t see too much of the pink but it does make my skin look smoother. I use it primarily on my arms. The bottle you can actually twist off incase you’re wondering it is a push pump style but you can unscrew the lid. I had to unscrew the lid because initially the oil was not liquid enough to pump out and once I mixed it around it worked out much better. Its in a glass jar so that is the dangerous part-store somewhere cool and maybe where you’ll remember it is because it would be too tragic to drop and break. I’d repurchase!

I’ve used it for so many days and yet I’ve only used like 1/10 of the bottle which is not bad at all. 2oz=$50

Review: r+co park avenue blow out balm

You know your hair is dry/tangly when you decide after years that it’s time to blow dry your hair to make it look less damaged. There’s one person I envy when it comes to smooth hair and it’s Meghan Markle. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to chop off anything so for a couple days I went ahead and used my sample of the r+co park avenue. Here are my thoughts:

  • scent reminded me of peanut oil? why don’t ask but I like peanut oil and butter so not a problem for me. maybe my sample was old who knows lol
  • its creamy and easy to dab on I overdid it I’d recommend you put on a little bit and mostly on the ends
  • dried my hair quicker and it was smoother looking but because my hair is so badly damaged it was still tangly but looked much more appealing
  • I enjoyed the product. my hair was beyond repair and I cut off about 6 inches
  • I’d rate this product a 8.5/10 I do recommend it. What I love about r+co is that they offer travel sized products for those of us who want less commitment or take things on travel! I’d even gift this because it seems everyone except for 2 of my friends blow out their hair.

Mind Blown.

Just found out Elizabth Olsen is the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics now. Ah-mazing. How pretty is she. If only I had her skin…I tell ya. After I vented for some time yesterday I realized that no matter how rude that lady was to me I was not supposed to give in and get upset. Its 2019 its a new less sensitive and less irritated Annie 2.0! Dear supportive reader, thank you-because you cheered me up!

I do have some things I want to review in the next few days and I’m super stoked about it! Also bought the most amazing bohemian-liberty-esque design you know with the floral design top from Ross. It is so cute I feel guilty about paying so little. Ross never fails me. I want to spend my big $$ on the select pieces like good bags a good sneaker but everything else I’d like to check every aisle at Ross and TJ MAXX because you never know what you find. Its really impressive.



Worst Customer Service Ever.

The customer service woman was so rude I’ve officially decided to quit doing business with the company. If there weren’t privacy laws I’d tell you who this company was! Rude! I will not be using them to send friends gifts either. Never.

Review: Kiehl’s buttermask intense repair lip treatment

Been using this lip mask for some time now-I like it very much and it smells delicious like cocoa butter but not as strong as most cocoa butter products. I love all things cocoa butter so really in the end, its a win-win for me.

I’m definitely repurchasing. The next lip product on my mind is definitely the mint-version of the fresh lip treatment. If anyone gets to try that, I’d love to know about it!

Review: bite beauty agave sugar lip scrub

My thoughts on the product:

  • more gritty than the original cherry version
  • the other part that’s not the gritty sugar, almost too watery and runny in my opinion but blends well together
  • smells very sweet and delicious like maple and caramel put into one
  • worked quite well
  • 9/10 on this one. Love how natural it is and how I put too much product on the first try. A little goes a long way.

Review: OUAI rose hair& body oil

I finally tried the oil I had bought during one of the Sephora sales here’s my thoughts on the oil:

  • smells elegant and just like the hair and body scrub
  • lightweight
  • because my hair is so tangly and dry, as a hair oil this version falls short but as a body oil it sinks in quick and works decent
  • I prefer the original hair oil and would not repurchase(although I did repurchase the hair& scalp scrub!)
  • rating this one a 7/10 the ingredients are still great the price isn’t bad for something from a popular brand and I’m still going to use it as a body oil. I don’t think I can smell it after it dries to be honest that’s the sad part.

Review: Diptyque Centifolia candle

This is new to my collection and current¬†favorite. It’s a somewhat spicy rose just like the description. Previously I bought most of their sweeter, honey and rose type scents but they come off way too sweet and this spice was exactly what I was looking for. Some days I burn it on its own other days I burn it side by side with the Byredo burning rose. I love the color of the glass and the design very hip.

I’d repurchase this candle. I bought the small candle because I wanted to try it first and I absolutely love it. I give this one a 9/10 because it’s diptyque items it’s pricey!
