By now I am sure you are familiar with the very popular Orgasm Blush by Nars. Like every other makeup obsessed person out there I also use Orgasm almost daily as a staple in my beauty routine. It gives your cheeks a nice natural color and makes your skin glow without looking glittery. So, when I came across the Nars Orgasm Mini Set I knew I had to try it. I had always been curious about the other Orgasm products Nars carries but wasn't sure what else to try, so this kit is prefect for me. Everything in this set is comes in the shade Orgasm and is small sizes so it is great if you are looking to try these products. When I opened the box, I was impressed by the packaging everything looked so cute, I couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately for me the products where more of a hit and miss. I obliviously already expresses my love for the blush, but everything I loved about the natural looking shade was the complete opposite for the highlighter. I am very fair, so even though the golden highlighter is beautiful it was too dark for my skin tone. One of my favorite products from this set was the Oil-Infused Lip Tint I really loved this product, and in the future I would defiantly buy it again. I tend to have really dry lips, but love color and this lip tint gave me moisture, and a nice shimmery pink shade on my lips. Now the Afterglow Lip Balm gave my all the moisture I could want from a lip product, but the color just wasn't there, I felt like it was just a nice tube a chapstick, that I could apply before my actual lipstick application, not my favorite product. So, I like mentioned before this set was a hit and miss for me, I defiantly plan on still using the blush, and adding the Oil-Infused Lip Tint into my routine, but the highlighter, and the Afterglow Lip Balm was not my favorites. This set is Limited Edition and sold Exclusively at Sephora for $39.00, which is a great deal if you are looking to try more of the Nars Orgasm Products. I am really glad I tried this set so now I know in the future which products I want to keep purchasing. -K.sha
Recently I have become obsessed with a new restaurant in my area, called Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant. The atmosphere is really nice, but also has a casual vibe which I like. So you don't feel too stuffy eating their, but could go if it was a nice occasion. The restaurant is all about the wine, and you can do wine taste there, and the menu has a great selection of drinks. I have been there a few times but one of my favorite dishes that I have ordered is the Gnocchi Carbonara. For starters, I am a sucker for gnocchi, but the gnocchi at Cooper Hawk's is some of the best I have had. It is a little al dente which I appreciate because nothing is worse than mushy gnocchi. This dish also has chicken, peas, pancetta(which I left asked them to leave off of mine since I don't eat pork), a garlic cream sauce, and is topped of with parmesan, YUM! I truly recommend trying Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant your next time eating out, and make sure you try the Gnocchi Carbonara. I am sure you won't be disappointed. -K.sha
So recently I have been all about Kylie Jenner's Lip Kits, I got a few of them for Christmas and they are amazing( I will be doing a review on them soon!). So when I heard that Kylie Jenner was going to also be selling clothes and accessories, at her new website The Kylie Shop, I couldn't wait. The item that caught my eye the most was the Pink Lips iPhone Case. It is so adorable, and I have the hardest time finding cases to fit my iPhone 7plus( it also comes in 6, 6plus, and 7). The best part was the iPhone case is only $15.00, which is a great deal. I love the pink lips, and I think they look so good with my rose gold phone. Kylie also had a few other cases, a Multi-Colored Lip case, a case that says Kylie Jenner Lips, and a case with the Drips running down it. Kylie Jenner is such a girl boss, and I can't wait to see what she does next!
Today is the day us pumpkin crazed fans waited all year for, the release of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. But wait there is a catch, in order to get your PSL before the official release date, which is scheduled for September 6, you have to either be a Starbucks Reward member. Or if you are not a Starbucks reward member you can just go to @TheRealPSL Instagram or Twitter account for a link to a code for early access. I know what you must be thinking isn't it easier just to wait 5 more days to get the drink when it is officially released, but my answer is "no way!" I am far to impatient to wait 5 days for a delicious pumpkin drink as good as the PSL is! -k.sha
I am such a huge fan of Sinful Colors Nail Polishes, they are inexpensive, come in a wide variety of colors, and look really pretty. The newest shade I just got is called Lie-Lac, it is a pastel purple, with almost a hint of blue and grey. It has a shinny matte finish, and it goes on really smooth. I really love this shade because it adds a fun pop of color to your look, it is especially a really great shade for summer or spring. What do you think of SinfulColors newest shade Lie-Lac? -k.sha
I know what most of you are thinking isn't it a little early for pumpkin, well any true pumpkin fan would say no it's never to early for pumpkin! I just recently started getting into drinking Dunkin' Donuts coffee, and overall I have been impressed, so I've been patiently(or maybe impatiently) counting down the days until they released there pumpkin coffee. I was really excited to try it and see how it measured up against Starbucks. I ordered a Pumpkin Macchiato, because it sounded really different, and so far I have found that I like the Macchiatos the best at Dunkin'. The verdict: I was shocked, but in a good way, not that I didn't think it would be good, I was just surprised how different it tasted. The syrup seemed a lot thinner and had more of a spice to it. I honestly don't think I could pick which is better between the Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks Pumpkin drinks, it would really depend on my mood for the day to decide which one I got. -k.sha
I don't know about you but I am music obsessed, music energizes me, and changes my mood, which is why I love it so much. And now since two of my favorite artist, Meghan Trainor, and Ariana Grande just recently released albums, they add great songs into the mix. Which is really making me love my new playlist. -k.sha
Probably by now you know that SinfulColors Nail Polish is my favorite nail polish. It's not too pricey, there are a lot of shades to choose from, and it tends to stay on pretty well. So when I saw they where doing collection with Kylie Jenner I was really excited. SinfulColors and Kylie Jenner came out with four collections King Kylie, Denim & Bling, Trends Matter Velvety Demi Mattes, and Trends Matter Pure Satin Mattes. So far I have tried the shade Karamel from the King Kylie Collection, it is a two step gel polish, so if you have never used the SinfulColors gel polish before you will also have to get the top coat. I myself have never tried the gel polishes before so I was excited to see if they were any better than regular polish. I really liked the color Karamel because it is a really neutral pinky gold tone with lots of sparkles. On I could defiantly see the difference in the gel versus the regular polish, it is more shinny and smooth looking. As far as chipping goes I felt it stayed on about the same amount of time as the regular polish usually does. I am loving Kylie Jenner's nail polish Collections with SinfulColors, and I hope they keep collaborating and continuing to come out with even more shades. -k.sha
As you may already know I try to stick to as much of a gluten free diet as possible, so when I saw Ruby Tuesday got in a gluten free bun for there burgers I was super excited! I love turkey burgers, so I knew I wanted to order that, so I go the Avocado Turkey burger and swapped the bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes for mushrooms(my favorite burger topping). Then I asked to switch my side on french fries for grilled zucchini. I really really loved this Burger, it was juicy, had lots of flavor, and the gluten free bun tasted just as good as a regular bun to me. Ruby Tuesday is actually one of my favorite restaurants there food is really good and if you sign up for there So Connected eClub they are constantly sending out coupons which makes the prices not that bad. This Gluten Free Turkey Burger was so delicious I can't wait to get another one! -k.sha
I do not know about you but I love pancakes! Who am I kidding everybody loves pancakes, and my favorite kind are my Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes. The best part about the pancakes recipe I have for you today is that I used Aunt Jemima Whole Wheat Mix to create them. Which means it is super easy, healthier than regular pancake mix, and I actually prefer the taste of whole wheat pancakes over regular because they are not as sweet. The first thing you will want to do to make Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes is peel and slice apples, then place them on tin foil. Next you will want to sprinkle some cinnamon and brown sugar onto the apples. Then Fold the tin foil and place in the oven to bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Up next you are going to take 1 cup of the pancake mix and mix it with a dash of vanilla extract and 1 1/14 cup of water, then stir your batter lightly. The next step is to take your skillet and spray it with pam, so the pancakes don't stick, then add you pancake mix into the skillet. You will then want to drop your baked apples into your pancake batter. Once the pancakes start bubbling you will want to flip them, and let them cook for about 1 more minute. After that the pancakes are ready to remove from the skillet, the last step is to sprinkle some powder sugar on top of you pancakes. Now your Whole Wheat Apple Pancakes are complete and are ready to eat! -k.sha
I don't know about you but one of my FAVORITE flavor combinations is dark chocolate and fruit, it really doesn't get better than that. So I have naturally been a fan of Brookside Chocolates since they hit the market. One of my favorite fruit and chocolate combos has always been orange and dark chocolate, so I have been patiently waiting for Brookside to create this flavor. Finally I found Brookside Dark Chocolate with Blood Orange and Peach, and since peach is one of my favorite fruits I wasn't complaining that it was also included in the mix. This new flavor is amazing, the sweet and tangy peach and orange combined with the dark chocolate, was pure perfection. One thing I love about Brookside chocolates, is they are tiny bite size pieces so you can eat a few, or a whole bunch and basically portion size your snack. These new Brookside Dark Chocolate Blood Orange & Peach Chocolates are so good, I couldn't imagine them any tastier. -K.sha
I very seldom do a movie review, but that is only because I have yet to find to many movies in the past few years that I really enjoyed watching. Recently I rented The Intern (rated PG-13), and I truly enjoyed this movie. It reminded me of the movies that used to be made not to long ago, like The Devils Wear Prada, that were cute movies, with a strong cast, and good plot line. The Intern stared Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, two amazing actors who made this film. The overall plot of the movie is 70 year old Ben(Robert De Niro) becomes an intern to Jules(Anne Hathaway) who runs her own fashion website. This movie was hilarious, had a great story line, and some really sweet moments. I have already watch The Intern twice, because yes I thought it was that good, and I really recommend if you haven't seem it you do so immediately. -k.sha
I can't get enough coffee, so when Starbucks comes out with a new flavor I get totally excited to try something new. There newest drink is the Caramelized Honey Latte, which is a latte with a Caramel Honey sauce and a Caramelized Honey Topping. I have tried this drink in both a Iced Latte and a Frappuccino. This drink really surprised me because I thought it would be really sweet with the honey, but actually it wasn't over sweet, which was perfect for me. Between the Frappuccino and the Iced Latte I preferred this particular flavor in the Frappuccino form, I feel like you can taste the Caramelized Honey flavor better, and the Topping goes better on the Frappuccino too. On the Iced Latte the flavor was good but the Topping kinda just dissolved in the drink. Overall I was really impressed with both the Caramelized Honey Latte and Frappucciono. -k.sha
I am in love with my new water bottle! I got it at Target, the brand is Sip by S'well. I was drawn to these water bottles because they came in a wide varieties of colors and patterns, I got the yellow one with the bees on it, which I think is adorable. I also loved how these water bottles where stainless steal, I don't like drinking out of plastic, and glass water bottles become very heavy to carry around all the time. Also S'well uses a technology that keeps your drink the temperature it was when you first poured it into the bottle, which is nice when you have ice water and you are in a hot climate. This water bottle is 15oz which is almost the same size of a typical bottle of water, I felt like it was the perfect size. The water bottle cost $24.99, which seems a bit high but I felt like it was worth it since I use my water bottle a lot. I'm loving this Sip by S'well water bottle! Between being made out of stainless steal, and how cute it is with the yellow and the bees, this water bottle was a no brainer for me! -k.sha
I am a coffee lover, and I have been a Starbucks drinker forever, but Dunkin' Donuts has always been the place where I order donuts(surprising, huh?), not coffee. I have always wanted to give Dunkin' Donuts coffee a try but was always hesitant. This past week I finally brooke down and decided to try a Dunkin' Donuts Iced Coffee, and I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered a Butter Pecan Iced Coffee with Skim Milk, I choose this flavor since it is one Starbucks doesn't offer and I wanted to try something really different. In comparison to Starbucks the coffee doesn't taste quite as strong, and it has a more of a sweeter taste, but my favorite part was the Butter Pecan flavor. After trying Dunkin' Donuts I really can't say which coffee I like better, it will probably just depend if I want a sweeter, or a more strong coffee taste, but I will defiantly be ordering Dunkin' Donuts coffee again. -k.sha
I have a huge sweet tooth, so when I go to Whole Foods the first thing I do is visit the pastry section. Whole Foods has some of the best pastries to me. On my last visit to Whole Foods I decided to try the Raspberry Lemon cupcake. It sounded delicious since I love raspberries and lemons, plus look at this cupcake the presentation is spot on with the pink and yellow color scheme. I enjoyed this cupcake so so so much, it had to be one of the best cupcakes I have ever eaten. The icing was raspberry, and it tasted so sweet, then the cupcake part was lemon and it had a lemon filling inside which was tart. Mixing the sweet and the tart together made for the perfect flavor combination. I would defiantly order this cupcake again, it did not disappoint. -k.sha
Music is one of my favorite things so I always like to buy new songs to keep my playlist updated. Music defiantly changes my mood, so I listen to different types of genres of music depending on what kind of mood I want to be in. Today I want to tell you about four song that I really like right now. -k.sha
1.) Sabrina Carpenter's Smoke and Fire: This is Sabrina Carpenter's newest single, which I am completetly in love with. Sabrina Carpenter has so much talent, and this has to be by far my favorite song she has released.
2.) Jana Kramer' Said No One Ever: I love Jana Kramer, she has to be my favorite singer. Her music is so fun and upbeat. Said No One Ever is one of my favorite songs on her newest album Thirty One, and Jana Kramer just recently announced that this will be her second single of of this album. When you hear this song you can't help but sing and dance along to it.
3.) Charlie Puth's We Don't Talk Anymore (feat. Selena Gomez): We Don't Talk Anymore is one of my favorite songs off of Charlie Puth's new album Nine Track Mind. Charlie has an amazing voice and this duet with Selena Gomez is perfect!
4.) Meghan Trainor's NO: NO is the first single released off Meghan Trainor's newest album Thank You. I love Meghan Trainor, so when I heard she was releasing a new album I was so excited, this new single NO is everything I had hoped for in Meghan's newest single. It is upbeat and fun, and a great song to dance to.
I am sure by now you have heard of the Netflix reboot of Full House, called Fuller House. Like everyone on the planet Full House has always been a favorite of mine, so I have been following Fuller House since they first announced the remake. Fuller House premiered this past Friday, and though I was excited to watch I couldn't help but wonder could this really live up to the original? After watching Fuller House I feel like it gives you everything you expect from a Full House reboot. Almost all of the characters returned, which made it feel more like the original, and I love the concept of D.J., Kimmy, and Stephanie now being the ones living together taking care of their kids. I love how older shows are coming back, especially shows like Full House that are such a classic. I really am enjoying Fuller House, and I really hope it gets picked up for more seasons. -k.sha
I am a huge fan of NYX lipsticks and lipgloss! My favorite is their Butter lines, they have Butter Glosses, and Butter Lipsticks. They both are moisturizing and offer a lot of color, it just depends if you want a glossy look or not. I recently picked up a new shade of the NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Razzle. I love this shade it is like a super bright neon pink, and since I am the type of person who loves bold and bright lip colors this shade was perfect for me. It's the type of color you want to wear when you want to stand out! -k.sha
I am all about my coffee, and I love when Starbucks releases a new flavor to try. On Tuesday Starbucks came out with there newest drink, a Smoked Butterscotch Latte. Butterscotch candy has always been a favorite of mine, I always think it is like the "better" version of caramel, because it taste similar but not as sweet. So I have been hoping for awhile Starbucks would take on a butterscotch drink. The Smoked Butterscotch Latte has a Smoked Butterscotch sauce, and a Smoked Butterscotch candy topping, yum! So did it taste as good as I thought it would?.... Yes, I loved it, the only negative would be once again this is a limited edition flavor(now through March 21), so there is only a short period of time to enjoy the smoked butterscotch goodness! -k.sha
Hello. As you know I am a huge Starbucks fan, I have to have my coffee! So when I heard Starbucks was releasing a new limited edition drink for Valentine's Day I knew I wanted to try it. The drink flavor is Molten Chocolate, and it comes in three forms a Frappuccino, Latte, and Hot Chocolate, and they are only available until February 14, so time is almost up! I ordered the Frappuccino, because it sounded the best with the flavors to me. The Molten Chocolate Frappuccino is basically a Mocha Frappuccino, with chocolate chips blended in, then it is topped with a mocha espresso drizzle and a mocha espresso whipped cream. Sound amazing right? It was defiantly a chocolate espresso lovers dream. My only complaint is they are only one the menu for a few more days, so enjoy them while you can! Have you had a chance to try the limited edition Molten Chocolate drinks from Starbucks? If so what did you think? -k.sha
Hey all! I am a huge macaron fan, they are one of my favorite things to have when I want to treat myself with something sweet. So when I found a 6 pack of LOOKA Macarons from my local Walmart I was really happy. In this package there are 2 Vanilla, 2 Raspberry, and 2 Pistachio macarons. My favorite is the raspberry, but I am a sucker for anything raspberry! These are great because there are not too many in the package, and you can freeze them and eat one here and there as you want. I also like how it is a portion controlled snack. I am really enjoying these LOOKA Macarons, have you ever tried LOOKA Macarons? If so what did you think? -K.sha
Trying to eat a mainly gluten free diet is hard. There are foods you want to cook and without all the right ingredients sometimes you can't always make that particular thing. I was really relieved to find McCormick Gluten-Free Gravy and Seasonings, because with these packets its so much easier to create the recipe you want. I use the brown gravy a lot for beef and gravy, a favorite of mine, but the gravy's also come in turkey. They also have seasoning packets with flavors like taco, spaghetti, or meatloaf and once you quickly add them to you dish they create a ton of flavor! I love using McCormick's Gluten-Free Gravy & Seasoning Packs to cook with, have you ever tried them? If you have any thoughts? -k.sha
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
