 My Opinion & Tips 
This is my first trying this type of cushions for shoes and I already love the idea of using them everyday. I had never thought using insoles would make a big difference but I was completely fooled! The first thing I thought when wearing them was how warm and cozy my feet were. These cushions made my winter boots feel a lot more comfortable in areas that were a little rough but not anymore. Next thing I did was to try the cozy cushions with other shoes hoping they would fit all the same but that was not the case. I tried wearing them with my casual shoes (flat shoes) but felt a little too tight. I did not tried to trim them to a smaller size because they already fit perfect with my favorite winter boots. 

This was the same case with my other casual and winter boots. The cozy cushions fit perfect with only one of my winter shoes except the rest because they all varied in size. Also, I noticed that these cushions fit better when the shoes are a size bigger than your actual size. This is because the two plush layers add extra volume so it will make any shoes feel more tight. In my opinion, these will not work if your shoes already fit too tight. In order to make these cushions feel comfortable, my shoes had to be a size bigger than my actual size to make room for the two plush layers. As for now, I am using my cozy cushions with only one of my boots because I made them fit exactly to those shoes. I am thinking of buying another pair to make them fit perfect to my casual shoes. Overall, I believe these cozy cushion have tremendously helped keep my feet warm during fall and the freezing weather. I am very excited to have discovered the great benefits of using insoles.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Sephora Birthday Package/Review Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ

I am going to be sharing the products I selected from which I got as a birthday present from my sweet hubby. This is the first time I selected stuff from the Sephora website so I am very excited for this package. There's many things in life that can make me happy and make up is on the top list for me. Besides, trying high end products for the first time makes it a little more special too.
Above are all the products I received. Most of this package consist of small samples except for the Too Faced palette and the Sephora by Opi jewelry top cot in gold.

Package List:
  • Lancôme La vie est belle / sample
  • Nest Midnight Fleur / sample
  • Escada Cherry In The Air / sample
  • BareMinerals Complexion /sample
  • Benefit Happy Birthday Beautiful / sample
  • Tarte The Bright Time Deluxe Maracuja Oil.
  • Too Faced Natural Eye Shadow.
  • Sephora by Opi Jewelry Top Coats in Gold.

It's not the first time I use bareMinerals make up and brushes so it's safe to say that this is one of my favorite brands and for a good reason. I love that is formulated without: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, GMO'S, and triclosan. Not only this but from experience I've seen this make up rarely makes me break out and it's almost safe to sleep with it if I too lazy to take it off. Their brushes are super soft so this mini kabuki brush felt just as soft as the full size brushes. The stroke of light illuminator was new to me so trying it for the first time was great but a little too sheer for me. I prefer one that has a thicker consistency plus a little more coverage.
I am in LOVE with these two and have officially made these my number one mascara and one of my top illuminator for cheekbones. The "They Are Real" mascara was something I had been waiting to try myself for a while because all I ever read was how great it was from reviews and watching videos. As for the "What's up" illuminator the final effect was like putting shiny dust up my cheekbones so the results were pretty. I will be deff be getting the full size samples whenever possible of these two.
Deluxe maracuja oil & eye treatment from Tarte is a product I stumble a few seconds before I was about to finish my order and so far I am glad I added it to my birthday gift list. My favorite is the pure maracuja oil because every time I use it I can visibly see that my skin texture appears softer and renewed. Also, I love that I can use this oil as my night cream so it can replace any other regular cream or lotion after washing my face. As for the maracuja C-brighter eye treatment the results aren't visibly right away but I know that by applying this at night I am taking care of the skin around my eyes with its great antioxidants ingredients. It is never too soon to start taking care of the delicate skin around your eyes and using a night cream.
Pure Maracuja Oil Info:
  • A 100 percent pure organic maracuja oil.
  • Quickly absorbs for firmer, brighter, smoother skin.
  • Rich in Vitamin C.
  • Contains essential fatty acids, a requirement for healthy skin cells that the body can't product on it's own.
  • Potent anti aging elixir with anti-inflammatory benefits that delivers maximum hydration without greasy feel.
  • Formulated with out: Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Fragrances, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, Triclosan
Marucuja C- Brighter Eye Treatment Info:
  • Intense, multitasking eye-treatment that visibly hydrates, firms, and brightens.
  • Contains rice bran, mango, coconut which fight signs of aging and free radical damage.
  • Oat sugars instantly smooth and visibly tighten skin.
  • Delivers the ultimate in hydration for smooth, youthful- looking eyes.
  • Formulated with out: Parabens, Phthalates, and Sulfates.
This top coat from Sephora by Opi is another nice addition to my nail polish collection that is growing pretty fast. For a while I wanted to get a gold glitter top coat but not from any particular brand. The gold glitter is really pretty on top of any matte color or by itself too.
This is one of my favorites ways to do my nails because it is obviously fast to do and it always looks perfect for any special occasion. I used the Sephora by Opi top coat on top of 3 different colors and one by itself.
I am completely in love with this palette and love the cute packaging. The is the one thing that I am most excited about getting because I really wanted to get a new eye shadow palette since the first one I got from wasn't working for me. Included there's a eye shadow sample primer called shadow insurance to try with the palette that is anti-crease and promises to make colors brighter too.
A fun and helpful addition to this palette are these note cards telling you simply ideas to use with this palette. These colors are very beautiful and pigmented. This palette is perfect to create a natural eye make up during the day.

September Favorites

Some of my favorites beauty products from last month also mixed with other miscellaneous stuff.  

 More and more I am noticing my love for Maybelline make up products. It first started when I tried their Instant Age Rewind Erase Dark Circles then switch to their even more popular Dream Lumi Highlighting Concealer. I know both are pretty used up and messy but only because I love this product and will purchase again. 

I have warm undertone skin but the color 230 looks a little too orange and dark but the consistency is very light so it blends easy and smoothly. It also made my skin look oily but putting on a setting powder afterwards helps it look more matte. I might go buy a different color to see if there's a better "fit" for me and if not I will just keep looking for my holy grail foundation.  

The pink frosting blush has a lot of pigmentation and can be easily blended to make it look darker or softer. It is lightweight like a powder yet creamy for dewy cheeks. It is now one of my favorite blushes for summer and Fall. 

I love the combination of a sparkly nail polish on top of a matte color. I could wear this style all year around but with different color combinations too. 

Samples of two perfumes I got for free at Bath & Body Work and a mascara sample I won from a sweepstakes from Bobbi Brown in Facebook. The amber blush perfume was released for the Fall season while the beautiful day last summer. Knowing myself I wear perfumes depending on my mood so both have been my favorite for this month. 

Moving to jewelry, this particular style of earrings never caught my attention before but now they do. I got these at a boutique near my hometown in Blue Ridge, GA. 

These style of earrings have been my favorite to wear almost all year around. I got these at Forever 21 and had to get two in case I lost a pair since the look similar. 

I have never really wear big necklaces like this one so it's kind off different for me. I can wear this with almost anything so I really like it. Also got this at Forever 21.

A pretty infinity scar from the same boutique store I got the white earrings. I think small boutiques are the perfect place to find the most original and rare finds. 

A Himalayan salt rock my sister gave to me as a gift that can be used to cleanse the face and help with acne.  I've not tried it to cleanse my face yet because I like it a lot more for decoration. The store she got it from are popular for selling salt lamps which are said to be beneficial to different groups of people. Also proven to enhance the surrounding air quality. Read more about it here: Salt Lamps.

Last but not least is my favorite Hello Kitty cup of all. During my family trip at Universal Studios back in August I was surprised to even find Hello Kitty stuff since it's all superheroes stuff and all that jazz. I think I've started to have an obsession with collecting cups.

Hello Kitty Handbag Collection. "Baghaus & Tokidoki"


Few months ago I entered a giveaway from on Facebook and the price was a HelloKitty  Embossed bag in the rhapsody color. I first found out about this giveaway announcement on BentleyBlonde youtube channel and lucky enough I was the winner! 

It was kind of surreal to have been chosen and being called the winner by one of my favorite beauty advisers in Youtube. Waiting for the arrival of this handbag was a mess since the deliverer driver never showed up to my doorstep so I had to drive myself with the help of my roommate at that time to nearest UPS location and get it myself.

This has been one of my favorite handbags to use back in college while doing my Esthetics program. It was big enough to fit my textbook, make up bag and even my lunch. It's sturdy and really easy to clean inside and out; alcohol works great for that. I have received many compliments carrying this bag since the unique shape and color are very eye-catching.

Second is the Tokidoki for Hello kitty which was a limited edition at
With the purchase of this handbag there was an offer that included a free Tokidoki calendar with a collectible 5-piece vinyl figurine gift set. At the time I bought it I never expected them to pack the calendar because I knew they were sold out but to my surprise it was there.

I was head over heels the first time I saw it online and was even more once it arrived. The key chain hanging on the left is one of my favorite features as well as the print. I've become very fond of big handbags so I am very happy with the size and how much stuff it can hold.
