I am obsessed with scents. I love things that smell great, candles, fragrances, you name it. I don’t know about you, but whenever I go into a Sephora, or Ulta, or any kind of store that sells perfume or fragrances… I always end up leaving smelling like a million different scents because I just can’t help myself and need to sample EVERYTHING.
I’m always looking for new fragrances that I’ll love. (Lots of times I find them just by getting those sample cards that come inside magazines) Sometimes I end up finding a scent just because I like the look of the bottle or the packaging looks nice. (I know, crazy… luckily I haven’t bought one yet that was a complete fail)
I was really excited to try Jouer Cosmetics highlighters. As you know, highlighters (lipstick & blush) are my obsession at the moment. Before I placed my order, I originally just had my eye on the new ‘Skinny Dip’ lip topper.
The pictures of that lip topper looked stunning! I own two other lip toppers from them and wanted to get Skinny Dip to add to my collection.
I think because I wanted the lip topper, I wanted to add the highlighter as well. I decided to go with an additional highlighter… well, because it was hard not to pick more than just one. 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this package from Pixi Beauty, who very kindly sent this out for me to try.
Pixi is a new brand for me. I’ve noticed this brand maybe, two months ago? I was in Target and had my eye on their Hydrating Milky Mist and Glow Mist. I was hearing wonderful reviews on them and kept debating if I should pick them up to give them a try.
I ended up not getting them… but I’m heading to Target this week and I do have them on my list. With that said, after trying this product, I am now very eager and excited to try other products from this company. (Which is why I will be heading to Target to pick up those mists. ) Continue reading
It’s that time again. New month (the month is pretty much over & I got my nails done almost two weeks ago… but you know what I mean) new nail design. I almost forgot to post this. I know a lot of you like to see my monthly nail designs, so here you go. 🙂
I wasn’t sure if I was going to go with bright summer colors, (I was thinking matte hot pink or turquoise… I can never really decide, let’s be honest.) Instead, I kept it kinda simple. White and pink with some transfer foils and a touch of glitter. (gotta have glitter, who would I be without it?)
Super cute. Super simple. Still girly and fun.
How pretty is my Auora Crystal?! I purchased that a couple of weeks ago and I am in love. It was my first time buying any kind of crystal(s) but I thought it was so pretty… I had to have one! Check out my Instagram to see the woman’s page (I tagged her) if you’re interested in buying. So gorgeous!
Hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
Thanks for reading! 🙂

It’s been a while since I made a post non beauty related. Speaking of beauty, there are a few products I have my eye on that I’m considering purchasing. I may have a post about that soon.
How is it that we’re going into the end of May? Already? The year is almost half way over… didn’t we JUST celebrate the New Year? Feels that way, sometimes.
I’m not a fan of summer, so this time of year is totally one I dread. I don’t like feeling hot and sticky, I hate humidity and super hot temps. I’ve always been that way. (give me fall weather or winter weather) Plus I hate all the bugs and bees the summer brings. Ugh! I dread this every time… I hate spiders, bees, wasps, mosquitoes, random strange weird bugs that show up in my house every now and then at this time. No. No. No. I’m over summer before it even begins. Every. Single. Time.
I’m a little late with my April Favorites, but here they are nonetheless. All my favorites are things that I’ve been loving so much! I mean, of course, monthly favorites are products or items you’re loving for that month… I’m just really excited and loving them more so than maybe past months favorites. LOL.
If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ve probably seen my new nails for the month of April. (I posted over there)
If you don’t follow me, this will be new for you. 🙂 If you don’t follow me, you should! I’d love to connect with you guys over on my other social media pages. (name is the same as here – ThattgirlJenn *let me know your name so I can add you back*
Too Faced did it again and sucked me in with their cute packaging. For the longest time I would resist… I usually only buy mascara, blush, and lip products from Too Faced. I have lots of great ones from this brand… and so far, I’ve had no issues. No complaints.
With Instagram now, I see all the cute pics of all the latest things, of course. It makes it hard sometimes not to buy into the hype. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’m not a big fan of Too Faced eyeshadows. I like the brand okay, just not their shadows much. Personally, for me, I just think there are better quality palettes out there. I usually don’t buy their palettes. With this brand, as I mentioned, I just stick with the blushes, mascara, lippies. This was something new for me to try.
I was shopping the other day and I’ll admit, I had my eye on these. I kept seeing them on my Instagram feed and I was curious. I’ve been on a big highlighter and blush kick lately. I went in and swatched these. I loved the gold one (You Light Up My Life) the best (though I figured it wouldn’t look that great on me.. still, I had to have it) I did noticed these felt very dry. Not smooth or buttery as a lot of my favorite highlighters are.
I received the Miracle Diamond Sponge from Real Techniques through Octoly. If any of you follow me on my Instagram, you may have already read my thoughts on this sponge.
Real Techniques is (somewhat) a relatively new brand for me. Back in November (Black Friday to be exact) I picked up the Miracle Sponges (the orange ones) just to give them a try.
Some of you may remember, I was a bit hesitant to try them out, thinking I wouldn’t like them. Up until that point I only used a Beautyblender. I tried other sponges that were similar, but none worked as amazing as my Beautyblender. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the Real Techniques sponges. I really loved them from the moment I tried them out.
Today is my Birthday!! Seems kinda crazy because I feel like it was JUST my birthday not that long ago. Agh! The years need to slow down! At this point, I sound like a broken record. It’s true, though. I wish time would slow down. My birthday plans include getting my hair done at the salon with my favorite girl… and probably going to dinner with my husband later on. Old people stuff.
The good thing about my birthday is all the free little gifts I get from different reward programs. Free gifts from Sephora & Ulta, free drink from Starbucks, frozen yogurt from Pinkberry. Who doesn’t love free goodies, especially from their favorite places? 🙂
