Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Moisturizer Review

Hello my loves,

Long time no see! I have a perfect review for everyone since we are starting to see the transition from winter to spring and it seems for me, my face dries out very fast. I've realized that I have sensitive skin, since most moisturizers make my skin itch and feel like its almost on fire (Which is not good, obviously lol) 
So as I was walking around Target I came across this area where they were selling Boots products. Now the first time I heard of these products were through Missglamorazzi on Youtube and Fleurdeforce, but I never knew Target actually had these products in store. 

After some looking I came across the Boots Expert Sensitive Hydrating Moisturizer and decided to give it a try. I absolutely love this moisturizer because it not only hydrates my skin but it also helps it feel soft and gives my skin a healthy look. The only thing I could say bad about this product is that the smell isn't that great  but it is fragrance free and although it doesn't smell that great in the packaging, you barely smell anything when it is on your skin. 

I bought this at Target for $5.19 which is not bad for a moisturizer that does so much for my skin! 

Product Grade : A

Rest In Peace ♥ Please Spread this Around!

Hello Everyone,

It has been a long time since I have posted, but this is something that I need to do and I really would love support from anyone who reads this.

This past Monday, a football player age 22 at my University died suddenly after working out at a off site training facility. It is still unsure why, but as he was bending down to pick up a cone from the ground, he fell down and soon after passed away. For me this has hit home because not only was it a football player of 30,000+ students, he was also my best friends boyfriend and I can remember many memories of them and knowing him. He was a wonderful guy and it has hurt many of us to watch such a young man with an amazing future die so soon. I attended the funeral last night which was very heart warming seeing everyone who loved him in one place, but also extremely emotional.

If you would like to see an article explaining what happened scroll down past the donation paragraph.

Right now there is a fundraiser for his family to raise enough money so they can take care of funeral costs and their ultimate goal of sending him back to Greece to be buried where he was born. Now I understand at times like these not all of us are able to give money, but even sharing this page and sending it to others helps tremendously.

I really appreciate this!

Beauty Blogger Question

Hello Ladies!

So I haven't really done this before but I really need some help. I'm looking for a new shampoo since my old one Pantene Flat to Volume became discontinued or renamed because I cannot find it anywhere. So I'm asking all of you ladies what are your favorite hair shampoos!

I do not use conditioner normally because I don't need it and my hair becomes extremely oily even by putting a little at the ends of my hair (weird I know).

My hair tends to be a little oily after one day, so I generally have to wash it everyday or every other day otherwise I get good shine. Only problem I notice sometimes is that my hair can get extremely flat and I love to get some volume.

I know we all have different hair types and it will probably be hard to determine which one would work for me but names and or ideas work perfectly so I can do my research :)

So far I have been looking into Aveeno Nourish + Moisturize but I have seen so so reviews.

Good News :)

So I didn't mention this on my last post but I have decided to change my life up a little. 
About 4 weeks ago I stepped on a scale for the first time since the summer and after all the eating I've done and how crappy I have been feeling I looked down to see 250 lbs staring back at me. At first I was in shock and had to re-weight myself to make sure I wasn't seeing things and sure enough I wasn't. After looking back at how much I was eating and actually what I was eating (fast food, snacks, going out) was not the best choices for my body. Now I've tried diet's and fads to losing weight and either I quit before it made a difference or caved in and ate that one piece of pizza and it all went downhill. So I sat down and got to researching and after a couple hours I realize that I don't want to just lose weight I want to eat healthier for the rest of my life. So I have made a few changes:

- No fast food
- No Diet Coke (which is my horrible addiction) 
- I can eat the foods that I normally do such as when I eat out, but cautious about what is in it and how much I eat (Proportions!) 
-Work out is a Must!
-Drink only water
-Calorie count (although sometimes its hard with time, but in fact helps a lot) 
- Eat 6 small meals a day to get my metabolism going

So far I have been doing all the above and I'm happy to say I am now 4 lbs down and I have so much energy than I did before :) 

I'm ready to change my life forever and I'm bringing you guys on my journey!

September Favorites!

Hello Ladies,

So I'm a little late with the September favorites but better late than never right?

I don't know how it is for you guys, but it is getting extremely cold a little bit too early. I really can't complain because we had a wonderful winter, spring, and definitely hot summer. Yet, I'm extremely scared that this means it will be a harsh winter.
But for now I'm enjoying the cool weather, my heated blanket, and pumpkin flavored goodies!

First on my Favorites list are the Nail polishes;
I absolutely love the colors in Butter London Trout Pout and Sephora by OPI Looks Like Rain, Dear. These two colors definitely gave me the ability to wear colors that transition perfectly with Summer and the beginning of fall. Trout Pout is a Salmon pink color while Looks like Rain, Dear is a sparkly gold, it goes on pretty easily compared to other glitter nail polishes I have tried in the past.

Next is my new Samsung Galaxy s3. Now I was never a fan of getting the Iphone so when it came to looking into a new hone I had no idea where to look. Then came talk about the galaxy s3 and after doing a lot of research on battery life and the phone itself I was hooked. I got it in white and ordered a purple soft case. I absolutely love this phone!! Couldn't be more happier.
Then for my most favorite of September was my new Return to Tiffany™
Heart tag charm and chain ....the best gift I have ever received. I've been wearing it almost every day :)

Lastly, for fall I took a trip to Bath and Body Works and picked up this cute Squirrel Scentportable and they had a buy 4 get 2 free scents. I picked up Apple Crumble, Spiced Cider, Lavender & Vanilla, Cranberry Woods, and Vanilla Coconut. Yummmy
It's definitely Fall :)

Long time, I'm back!

Hello lovelies :) 

IT'S BEEN A WHILE! I had so many plans and ideas for posts but unfortunately those were pushed to the back burner while I tried to get my life all scheduled out. So update on the life: 
1) I started my internship at the district court in the city I live in (Absolutely love!) and I have a possible future working there.
2) I'm currently taking 3 classes at the University and 1 class at the community college. 
3) Working at my new job (Have I mentioned this before? I quit V.S around July and got another job at a International Supermarket as a cashier. Not the best job but I love it and they already have me training people and the only other girls who train have been there for 5 years *pats myself on the back* )
So I'm pretty much doing all the above Monday through Sunday. It's been a little hectic but I have myself in a little routine so now I'm able to breathe once in a while! 

Now enough about me, more about the blog. I will be posting more, which I will be posting my favorites of the week or month, nail of the weeks (because I change them a lot) and actually some neat recipes and holiday fun!

 If you have any ideas also, comment below and let me know what you want to see!

 Hopefully I can get more followers soon too! I'm so happy to be back on here and I hope you are too! 

xoxo Danielle

Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox

Hello Ladies :) 
Still busy with work and school so I've been a little behind with the posts, I apologize! But, a couple weeks ago I received my first ever Summer Beauty VoxBox from Influenster! 

What I received:
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF30
Tampax and Always Radiant Collection
Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread
Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color
Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme

After waking up late I ended up picking out the Soft Baked Bar and ate it on my way to class and I must say not only did it really taste like Banana Nut Bread (and DELICIOUS) but it also kept me full through my class until I was able to get a full meal. I'm planning on using the cuticle creme and magnetic nail polish within my next nails of the week!
