Hello! Today I want to tell you all about my Apple Watch, I bet you are wondering what does an Apple Watch do? I know this because I was wondering the same thing before I got mine. I got the Apple Watch Sports Edition 38mm in Rose Gold with the Lavender Band. I fell in love with the Apple Watch from the first time I used it, and I defiantly do not regret getting it. I choose the Rose Gold color, because I think it looks very classy, and it goes well with most outfits. The watch came with the Lavender Sports band, I really like the color of the band, and I love how you can take the band off to change it if you want. So far I haven't found too many Rose Gold bands so I am waiting until I find one I love to buy another one. There is so much you can do on your Apple Watch, one of my favorites is the Activity App. The Apple Watch tracks your steps, how much you move, and if you stand each hour. The watch also can take you heart rate, which is super handy to have especially when you are working out. You can use your watch as a remote for you Apple TV, or control your music on your phone, which is nice if you are the type of person who can never find the remote( I would be pretty hard to loose one inside your watch!). If you are a big couponer like me, Kohl's has there rewards app on the watch for easy use at checkout, also Target Cartwheel is on the Apple Watch so you don't have to fool with your phone while in line. Another favorite of mine is you can quickly check your social media accounts like Twitter, or Instagram right on the watch. What I have named is just the beginning there is so much you can do on the Apple Watch, I am not sure how I have gone without it all these years. What is your thoughts on the Apple Watch? Do you love it as much as I do, or are you not that into the idea? -K.sha
I love music, it changes my mood, and the right song can motivate me to get going, and get things I need to do done. That's why having a great playlist is so important to me. Here are four of my favorite songs from my current playlist! -K.sha
Sinful Colors is my all time favorite nail polish. I have tried many brands and for the price nothing else compares. Usually you can get a bottle of Sinful Colors polish for $1.99. I just recently found a new color while shopping at Walgreens, the shade is called Cherry Blossom. I was really drawn to this color because it is a bright, but not to bright pink. I also loved the shine this color had, and I think this would be a great color for Valentines Day! -K.sha
Recently bareMinerals has come out with a new skin care line. The star of the line is Skinlongevity. I am always hesitant to try a new product so I was really happy to receive a sample. This product is supposed to do four things "Empower, Replenish, Renew, and Fortify". Skinlongevity is supposed make your skin look bright and glow, while hydrating, and helping get rid of the look of wrinkles. The first thing I noticed when I used it was the smell of ginger, since this product has Ginger Extracts (along with Long Life Herb, and California Poppy) the smell of ginger really came through. My skin felt refreshed after using the product, and thought my skin looked glowing, the product didn't feel greasy. The only negative I would have for this product is the price, $48 seems a little price, especially compared the the rest of barMinerals products. Overall I liked this product, I would love to know if you have tried it, and if so what you thought? -K.sha
I love to take pictures, and the majority of the pictures I take come form my iPhone, because it is always there when I need to snap a quick picture. So I really wanted to get some different lenses for my phone so I could take different types of photos. I looked in to different brands and the one I like the best for the price was the Photojojo lenses. For $49 you get four different lenses, which is really a good deal. The only drawback to the Photojojo lenses is they come with a magnetic strip you have to place on your phone, and the lenses attach magnetically to the strip. Which means you have to remove you cell phone case anytime you want to use the lenses. But other than that they work great, and the come with lens caps so your lenses won't get scratched when you carry them. Below I have examples of pictures from each lens.
Telephoto Lens 2x
Above is an example of the Telephoto Lens 2x. To the left is a picture taken without any lens, and to the right is the same shot with the Telephoto Lens 2x. This lens is basically a zoom lens, which is great when you want to take a picture from far away.
The Fisheye Lens makes everything look like it is almost in a bubble, and makes everything zoom out a little. The picture to the left is taken without any lenses, where the picture to the right is taken from the same place but with the Fisheye Lens lens.
The Wide Angle Lens was the Lens I was most excited to get. Basically it makes the picture "wider" by showing more on each side. As you can see on the left side without the lens you loose a lot of the room, verses the right picture where if you look closely there is a lot more on both sides of the picture.
The Macro Lens is actually combined with the WideAngle Lens. When you are ready to use it you just take the top part of the lens off by unscrewing it. When you first look out of the Macro Lens you won't see anything but a big blur. But if you zoom in close to a detail, it will become clearer, and then everything surrounding it will remain blurry, which can make you some really cool pictures. To the left you can see a sweater knit hat with pearls on it, if you take the same picture with the Macro Lens it makes the pearl clear and the sweater part blurry.
I don't know about you but I love a bold lip color, but I also love a good shinny gloss. That why NYX Butter Gloss is one of my all time favorite glosses, it has a great shine, but still maintains that bold color I love. The shades I have are Raspberry Tart- which is a berry shade, Red Velvet- a bright red color, Sugar Cookie- a neon pink color, and Strawberry Parfait- a simple hot pink. I am a fan of purple lipsticks, so I love the Raspberry Tart color, because it has that berry shade without being to dark or over the top. A red lip is always a classic choice, and just like the purple I like wearing this shade in a Butter Gloss so it doesn't look too over the top. Sugar Cookie might look like a really neon color, but on it is really pretty, and gives your lips a real pop. You really can't go wrong with a hot pink lip, which is why Sugar Cookie has become one of my new favorite shades. Butter Gloss by NYX is defiantly my go to lip product, you really can't go wrong with a bold color mixed with some shinny gloss! Have you ever tried NYX Butter Gloss? Which shade is your favorite? -K.sha
As soon as I heard Rachel Platten's new single Fight Song last spring I thought two things: this girl can totally sing, and when is her full album coming out. Well this past Friday January 1st Rachel Platten's full album Wildfire did come out and it totally lived up to Fight Song. Rachel Platten has such strong vocals and when you combine that with her inspiring lyrics, you can't go wrong. I love every song on this album, and I have been listening to it nonstop since Friday. Have you heard Rachel Platten's new album Wildfire? If so where you as blown away by it as I was? -K.sha
