April 2017 Wish List

Air Fryer | Benefit Boxed Blush | Ole Henriksen Kit | Village Candle Coffee Bean | Beauty and the Beast Journal | Iconic Protein Drink

Here are a few of the awesome products that have caught my eye and made it onto my wish list for the new month.  We’ve got a little bit of everything this month.  Check it out!

Air Fryer ($150)- My biggest wishlist item of the month is an air fryer.  After seeing all of the awesome creations people are coming up with in their fryers, I’m having some severe envy about not having one of my own.  Air Fryers help you achieve the crisp cook of fried food while using little to no oil in the preparation.  This sounds like a dream come true.  I’m longing to get my hands on one of these so I can try out different veggies in there to make my own sweet potato fries, butternut squash bites, and I’m really dying to try the Green Giant cauliflower tots in there.  I was obsessed with them when I had them at my parent’s house, and I imagine tossing them in an air fryer rather than the oven will make them even more amazing. This appliance actually surpassed a new coffee maker on my wishlist. That’s just crazy talk!

Benefit Galifornia($29)- I’ve always enjoyed Benefit’s cult classic boxed blushes. Coralista has always been one of my favorites, and GALifornia looks like it might be a slightly brighter, but still completely wearable version of my all time favorite.   Read more

February 2017 Wish List

Every month (okay, every month that I actually take the time to do it..) I  like to compile a list of the things I’ve got my eyes on.  This month we’re looking at a few different kinds of sweet treats and even a new kind of crayon.  Read on!

 

Wicked Good Cupcakes:  If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for all things sweet, and cake/cupcakes are at the very top of my list.  With Valentine’s Day around the corner, all of the best sweet treats are coming out with limited editions for V-day.  I’ve been dying to try these Wicked Good Cupcakes.. I mean, Wicked is in the title! How could I not want to try these?? Has anyone ever tried them? Are they as good as they look?

 

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection:  I know this collection is SO hyped up, but I’ve also heard it’s as awesome as it looks.  Too Faced is the company that really got me into high-end cosmetics (with the purchase of an eyeshadow duo called “bon-bon”) years ago, and I love trying all of their products, but I just haven’t been willing to purchase anything from sweet peach yet. Now they have more than the eyeshadow palette (which I’ve wanted for months).  There are lip glosses, a highlighter palette, and a blush that looks amazing.  If I do cave, I’ll be sure to give you a full review of whatever I get.  What do you recommend?

Optimum Nutrition Cake Bites: Did I mention I love cake?? Now I’m looking at a more Weight Watchers friendly version of cake with these protein cake bites from Optimum Nutrition.  They come in 3 flavors: Birthday Cake, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Dipped Cherry.  How does one choose?? Each serving packs 20g protein, giving your cake fix a bit of a nutrition fix as well.  I’m dying to get my hands on these. As per usual, if I find them, you’ll hear about them.

Clinique Crayola Chubby Sticks:  The latest lip product line from Clinique, a company I adore, is a set of Chubby Sticks inspired by Crayola crayons. How cute is that?? They even look like giant crayons.  I saw them swatched on social media, and every shade is one that I would wear in a sheer, hydrating stick, so it is definitely a collection I’d like to get my hands on. You can get the full set of 8 for $49.50. Read more

May 2015 Watch/Wish List

MayWishList

 

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation | ECCO Sandal | L’Occitane Ultra Matte Fluid  | MUF Artist Shadow Palette | Cane & Austin Pads | Sigma HD Brush | AG Skinny Jeans | Apt 9 Embellished Tee

 

1. Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation ($65)- This is an oil free moisturizer that over time exfoliates and fades dark spots as well as calms and clears skin.  I’ve used minis of this and love it.  Don’t freak out about the price because this is for a 3 oz large tub.  Great value that will last quite some time.

2. ECCO “Damera” Leather Sandal ($119)- I bought a pair of ECCO sandals last summer and I love them.  My feet are high maintenance with CMT, so I need supportive footwear, and those to a stellar job.  The Damera sandals look like they’ll have the same comfort and support as my current pair, but with a bit more dressy feel with the silver shimmer.
