LINK-END ROUND-UP: February 17, 2017

link-end round-up

After a semi-quick week, I’m bringing you another late edition of Link-End Round-Up. I must admit that I’m a little off, because I took yesterday and today off. All day, I kept thing that today was Saturday instead of Friday, which caused me to be super lazy. Actually, I was supposed to get my hair done this afternoon, but my stylist/friend got sick. So, we’ve rescheduled it for Saturday morning. The grey strands in my hair have to go.

After my appointment, we have a pizza lunch date our other friend. I’ve been trying decrease my intake of caffeine and dairy. I’ve been pretty good on the caffeine part, but I’ve had a lot of cheese the past couple of days. Now that I think about it, these might be the reason my skin has broken out. After today, I might go cold turkey on cheese, again.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll catch you next week. 🙂

Holographic Bags for Spring

holographic bags

One of the things that I’ve always been mesmerized by is holographic bags. I’m not sure, but my love of holographic bags might stem from my childhood addiction to Gem and the Holograms. I’m talking about the cartoon NOT that horrific real life movie they put out last year, which I’m still salty about.

Anyway, holographic accessories are my favorite way to add some to my adult wardrobe without it being to teen bop or faux futuristic. While doing my usual daily online window shopping, I noticed that there are some pretty amazing holographic purse and bags out there. Is holographic going to be in for spring? If so, I’m in!

Let’s get into these fabulous holographic bags I spotted.

eSTYLIST: Galentine’s Day GNO 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day! Okay, I completely forgot today was Valentine’s Day until I had to go to the grocery store and the dollar store last night. Last night, all of the parking lots and the Valentine’s Day sections were packed. The checkout lanes consisted of people holding flowers, boxes of chocolates, and covered in a cloud of heart-shaped balloons. I’ll admit, my anxiety was on 100, but I made it out alive.

This year, a couple of girlfriends are in town and we are going to have a small little Galentine’s Day girls night out. We’re just going out for dinner and drinks, because I have an early day tomorrow. My Valentine and I are going to have a Valentine’s Day lunch and then have drinks at his place tonight, which is just my style.

REVIEW: Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel

neutrogena hydro boost cleansing gel

I’m a firm fan of products that make it quicker and easier to do everyday tasks such as washing my face at the end of the day. I do love when I have the time and energy to double cleanse my skin. However, lazy girl beauty products like cleansing sticks and oils are clutch to when time is scarce. One product that seems to fall into this category is Neutrogena’s new Hydro Boost cleansing gel.

Neutrogena has had a pretty good relationship with my skin. However, this was the first product that I’ve tried from their Hydro Boost line. What sold  me on trying this cleansing gel is the claims that it boost hydration for skin and effectively removes makeup and other skin impurities. Plus, it’s a gel formula and has hyaluronic acid, which is good for hydrating skin. So, I couldn’t wait to put it to the test and share my results with you.
