Sephora + Pantone Universe colorbyte lip wands

Hey everybody! So I’m back today with some more lip stuff! Can you tell that lip products are my favorite thing to buy? Sephora has a lip gloss set on sale right now that I just adore! Thought I’d share it with you because I also purchased another set but they aren’t available anymore. So I’m really not sure on how popular they might be but I would definitely grab these asap.

They look cool right? I actually didn’t know they were lip products at all until I looked into it but I think they are so unique looking for lip gloss! Here’s a closer look..

There’s four colors which are sheer but they give your lips a nice light wash of color. There is one of them that is clear with glitter which i took a close up so you can see it..

Now they aren’t the most comfortable to use-packaging wise but I don’t mind. The middle is actually squeezable,which is how you get the product out.

I prefer squeezing a small amount onto my hand and using a lip brush to apply it rather than using it straight out of the tube but if you’re not picky like me you can throw them in your purse no problem.

They have a light sweet scent to them which I really like and they aren’t too sticky. If you don’t like the feeling of having anything on your lips then you may not like them. They are a little bit thick so they definitely don’t have a natural feel on the lips but I don’t know what lip gloss does.

Junie B. Jones box set & free bookmark printable

When I was little I used to love reading! My kids? not so much.. & it makes me sad sometimes because they are more into electronics than anything else. I’m always thinking of ways to make reading seem more fun than all those games but I gotta be honest. I’m stuck. No one had to bribe me when I was younger lol. I just really loved getting books. I decided to start a Pinterest board labeled BOOKS & just started adding books that I really think my kids would enjoy. It’s more of a shopping list really. I would like to own the books i pinned, starting with this Junie B. Jones box set! It’s super cute & I usually prefer box sets anyways.

Junie B’s Books in a Bus!

It’s pretty pricey but I would be getting a total of 27 books. I definitely think books are worth spending money on. Junie B. Jones are some of the cutest books! I found free bookmarks on their Facebook page & thought I’d share them in case you have kids who would enjoy them🙂 I know I’m going to print them out & get my kids cracking on some books! lol. Probably buy some nice book shelves too!

Last minute Stocking stuffers

So I’m usually not this late on buying & wrapping stocking stuffers but I thought I would share this in case anyone else is in the same boat as me! lol. I usually fill the stockings with small stuff since everything else is under the tree. We usually fill it with 3-4 candy items & 3-4 toy/other items & let them start opening one present a day one week before Christmas.

I found these cute little face masks for $1.00 each at my local Walgreens. There was 3 different kinds so I bought one of each.

They also had two different kinds of lotion. Also $1.00 each. I got myself Vanilla Noel & Twisted Peppermint for my daughter. She LOVES peppermint anything.

At my local Walmart they always have Hot Wheels for $1.00 & my little one is obsessed with cars so we knew we couldn’t go wrong there!

And how cute are these Whitman’s Christmas Charlie Brown chocolate bars?
Also $1.00 each at Walgreens.

Well I hope this helped some of you if you are doing any last minute shopping & needed a few little ideas. Happy Holidays! -LeAnndra

Wishlist Wednesday- Family

So with Thanksgiving being here tomorrow I wanted my wishlist Wednesday to have a little more meaning. So I won’t be sharing a product with you today but I will still share a wish with you! I live here in Washington state with my fiance & my kids. All of our family members live in different states, California, New Mexico, Oregon & so on. We actually moved here from California in 2005 & boy does it get lonely!

A few of our family members have been able to visit in the summer time which I am thankful for but around the holidays it’s just my little family. So what I would wish for is.. FAMILY! Gosh it would be so nice to spend the holidays together. My kids would be able to spend time with their grandma & grandpa. I would get to meet my little niece & nephew. Yep that’s definitely my wish!

So share with me..What do you do for the holidays? Do you spend it with family? -LeAnndra

Nailtini Nail Lacquer- Review

I received a bottle of Nailtini nail polish in my November Ipsy bag & I was so excited because I have been wanting to try them for a long time now! The shade I got was Caviar Cocktail. It’s your basic metallic gray polish. It is described as a Pure, all-premium nail lacquer in gunmetal gray spiked with shimmer.

I’m just going to jump right into it because there isn’t a whole lot to say about this so I don’t want to take up any more time than I need to. The formula is great! The price? Not so much. That’s one of the things that kept me from buying one yet. BUT if you can justify a $13.00 nailpolish I would definitely recommend this brand! I will be buying some more shades just because of the formula alone but they will definitely be a splurge item for me. I don’t have any Cons except the price. I absolutely love this nail polish but I just wish it was a bit cheaper!

Lets move onto the pix! (click photos to enlarge)

Somersault Snack Co. – Sunflower Seed Snacks

scxc

Just recently I won a giveaway over at Mom stays fit & I was so excited because I never ever win anything! She was hosting a giveaway with a company I had never heard of before. Somersault Snack Co. is the brand & so I looked them up & here is their story:

Our Story

With our busy, on-the-go lives we were desperate for a healthy snack that we could grab anytime – something that would nourish and tickle our taste buds. Disenchanted by unsatisfying snacks, we set out to create our own to share with other active people, just like us.

What we discovered on our quest was a surprise — the sunflower seed! We learned that seeds are the new nut, offering the perfect blend of protein, fiber and balanced nutrition with an excellent taste.

We loved the nut free nutrition of seeds so much, we nominated the sunflower seed as our own personal nutritional super hero, choosing it to be the #1 ingredient in every Somersault snack we bake.

Each of our Somersaults flavors are made with simple, all-natural ingredients of the highest quality so you can feel good sharing Somersaults with your whole family. So next time you enjoy a Somersault, think of those beautiful fields of sunflowers that stretch for miles across America and the incredible nutrition that these little seeds feed your body.

They come in 5 yummy flavors. Cinnamon Crunch, Pacific Sea Salt, Dutch Cocoa, Salty Pepper, & Santa Fe Salsa. My personal favorite is Cinnamon Crunch!

What I won was a 5oz. bag of each flavor.photo 1

Here are some close ups of my favorite kind! Cinnamon Crunch.

The flavor & crunch are perfection. I really could not believe I finally found a healthy snack that tastes GOOD! There wasn’t any lack of flavor or weird after taste.

I also got a cute little pedometer & a lip balm.

I don’t own any of the Naked palettes but they are on my list! I know, I know, I have too many lists! LOL.

Target brought them back in retro packaging which I thought was pretty neat!
