Five on Friday! It’s the best day of the week… Friiiiiiday! it’s been a rough week, no new blog posts (besides this one). Just lack of motivation. It happens!
1.Only 6 weeks until our cruise! Oh my gosh, am I excited! It’s going to be amazing, and fun, and I just can’t wait to relax for 7 days on a cruise ship. We’re going on the same ship that we went on for our honeymoon and I’m glad we have 2 sea days to enjoy the ship and fewer hours off the ship for excursions.
2.Week 3 of Keto, this week it’s been a little rough, but I’ve lost another 2 lbs, so far 5 lbs total lost. Slow but I knew this already. I also need to start working out or I won’t have the outcome like I will. Only 6 weeks until our cruise so crunch time!
3.I filmed my first ever makeup tutorial video this past Saturday. Let me tell you, I give MAJOR props to all YouTube bloggers/vloggers because I had such a hard time editing. Also, if you didn’t know, I am a HORRIBLE public speaker. I ramble, I get nervous, I say UHM too much, and I get REALLY red. If I am nervous enough I’ll start getting red splotches all over… yes it’s that bad. So in total, I filmed around…. 45 mins, and the video is around 15 minutes long. That’s how much I rambled, stalled… had to breathe and just things that didn’t need to be added. The editing took me FOREVER because I filed it on my Canon EOS 70D with a 50 MM lens (I researched this is the best lens for filming for newbies), and edited on my iPhone 7 with iMovie… because I have no idea how to edit on my laptop and had no patience or time to edit it on my laptop. So I’ll be taking the time to learn how to edit videos on Adobe (I don’t have a Mac yet so it needs to be Adobe for now), or just film on my iPhone so I don’t have to wait to have things transfer from my laptop to my phone. Once the video is approved by the company I’ll be posting and sharing it, so stay tuned!
4.I WON this past week for Fantasy Football, thank you, LORD. My FF team is now 2-4 (it’s sad), I have a GREAT line up but sometimes not ALL my players come together to do well as a whole. This week CA and I are playing against each other, I play on his paid work league so it’s a real league for money LOL. I’m excited and confident I can kick his butt, hopefully, it works in my favor.
5.Last night I cleaned off my desk, so I can use it for blogging pictures and etc. I have a long desk from Ikea that’s glass and has the words LOVE in all different languages all over it. I am going to be doing more reviews on my Instagram so I’ll need a spot to take photos with artificial lights since I work 9-5 and usually don’t have time in the morning to get them. So I have found a few props (that I’ll share once they ship) and grabbed table lights that will be perfect for flatlays since there are 4 of them it’ll be at all the corners of the area and it’ll be nice. I recently began to start getting free beauty products to review again from Octoly, so it’s a great way for me to get started in the beauty area of blogging. If you haven’t heard of Octoly you get free products to review on either your Instagram or YouTube. The requirements are at least 10,000 followers on your Instagram or 1,000 subscribers on YouTube. If you have either you can sign up with my referral link here! I do get some credits for you signing up under my referral link. You can review up to 5 products at a time, and have 21 days from the day you receive the product to post the review. It’s been a great way for me to review beauty products without being a huge beauty blogger I love it!
Favorites: These favorites will be from this past week or anything that I’ve re-discovered and thought it’s worth sharing.
–Women’s Croft & Barrow® Flannel Plaid Button-Down Shirt– It’s feeling like fall in New York, finally so plaid shirts are definitely going to be worn. I love that these are long sleeve but I can always roll up the sleeves if I am too hot. There are 17 different colors for this shirt and I grabbed 10 of them because fall/winter is my jam for these styles. Also, these are on sale for only $16.99 until October 22nd so if you need a few grab them now!
-I’ve been on a 21-day challenge using L’Oreal® ParisRevitalift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer. And It ends today! I’ve tried using it twice a day for the past 21 days but I do know that I’ve missed a few here and there. I have been wearing foundation less and feel like that I don’t need it. I’ve always paired it with…..
–L’Oreal® Paris Revitalift® Triple Power™ Eye Treatment! I have some wrinkles around my eyes plus deep purple under eye circles. I’ve been paying more attention to my skincare routine more and more because I’m in my 30s so I know that I want to look as young as possible for as long as possible. I have been reaching less for my under eye concealer so I really feel like it’s lessening the purple colors. I’ll keep using both of these products because I feel like I can tell the difference between when I first started to now.
–Vice Liquid Lipstick Comfort Matte– I received 2 different shades from the little samples you can get from either Sephora or Ulta. The color Amulet (brick rose) and Backtalk (mauve-nude pink) were the ones I got and OMG I love these colors! They’re so pretty and really perfect for fall. I love mixing the two of them together and I get a really cool color combination.
-Booties! All of the cute booties. I love booties for fall, I don’t get too hot from having boots too high. But booties are just adorable with jeans, dresses, leggings basically everything! I’ve grabbed a few new booties for the fall and linked below a few favorites from DSW! I have a DSW locally to me so I love going there and seeing what they have, and ya know shopping online never hurts ;).
