Spa feeling products

20190302_135316

I’m a big fan of Rituals Cosmetics! Entering their stores always put me in a relaxing mood and their products are great! I have two favorite lines that I love, but my absolute favorite must be this green line, The Ritual of Dao! The hand cream is the best hand cream I have ever tried (and I suffer from very dry skin)! The smell from these products are so beautiful. I don’t use the body cream every day, but when I want a extra treat, it’s my go to! A little tips is to mix in few drops of the oil with the body cream to get some extra hydration. This oil is also perfect for getting or giving a massage to someone you love ❤

Do you have a favorite from Rituals?

If you need a little help to stay more positive and motivated, this book is for you. It’s a self-help book that is easy to read, filled with good stuff to help keep your mindset on track. The Author talks a lot about how your energy level and your way of thinking will affect your everyday life in a positive or negative direction. Here is some sayings from the book that I loved:

“Our thoughts become our words, our words become our beliefs, our beliefs become our actions, our actions become our habits, and our habits become our realities”

“Trust that the Universe loves the crap out of you, kick fear in the face, and head bravely into the unknown”

 “Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive”

A must have in my makeup bag!

20190304_092813

For me makeup is all about getting that GLOW! Personally, I’m always focused on my skin and how to get a radiant healthy look. One of my absolute favorite glow products is the Strobe cream from MAC cosmetics in the color Goldlite or peachlite. This  is a cream that not only gives your skin a glow, it also treat your skin with nutritious vitamins such as green tea. You can use it in different ways, like mixing it with your foundation, use it as a high lighter, or like I do, use a thin layer all over your face before applying your foundation. Try it, it really lift up you look and make your skin look more healthy and glowy!

With one of the highest measured antioxidant (ORAC) capacities, cacao helps protect your cells from oxidation and aging, so chocolate is actually a beauty food!
