A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Hey everyone, so today I wanted to show you a couple of things I got and hadn’t had the time to write about. Also, I will be traveling in a couple of weeks so I really wanted to do this before I get into the activity of planning and packing and completely forgetting about it…LOL.

First of all, from Forever 21 they seem to have cool stuff right now, you know for me this store is kind of a hit and miss because there will be times when I go and I just can’t find anything, but then there are times when I just feel like taking the entire store (if I only could…) so these are a couple of things that caught my eye and thought are really worth sharing with you.

First of all, and my favorite one a “Back to the Future” Jumper, OMG I love that movie, and I really could not let this pass, while trying it out I even started singing “That’s the power of love” (Yes I am cheesy like that). Next thing is this beautiful blouse with flowers print, with spring coming (which I don’t know when ‘cuz I am freezing right now) I thought that this would be a nice piece in my collection. Also I got a makeup bag, I thought that one was pretty and the perfect size to fit all I need to take in my upcoming trip.

Also I saw these earrings, I noticed that jewelry does vary depending on the Forever 21 you visit, and let me tell you this was the first time I liked the one in this store, I fell in love of the Austin’s Forever 21 (too bad is far away from me). But I got these earrings which I thought would be great for work, especially the blue ones, with a ballerina bun, black sweater and boom!! you are ready to go.

The next thing I saw was their new makeup line, which by the design I will not deny reminded me a bit of the Top Shop brand, they have an entire display full of makeup, and I will say that I was tempted of getting a lot of the stuff I saw, but to be honest, I am trying to limit my makeup purchases and some of the products I tested them in the store and didn’t think were worth it (blushes are not nice). They did have some pretty single eyeshadows, but men I cannot buy anymore. So I only purchased a lipstick and lip gloss, these are very pretty, lipstick is this coral color very pigmented and smells fruity, and the lip gloss reminded me to my Dior lip gloss.

I also got a “beauty blender” because mine is coming to an end and I really wanted to give this one a try, I will have to report back later on that one since I haven’t used it yet. I also got a detangler brush, honestly I needed one for my bag and thought this one was pretty.

My last stop was lush and Bath and Body Works, I went to lush because since the last time I went there I wanted to get their Sea Spray, I am trying to style my hair without heat because to be honest I’ve been abusing my hot tools, and I really need to give my hair a rest, so this product is perfect to style my hair. I also purchased a lip gloss called “The Kiss” (Oh La La) I tried it at the store and loved it, the lady said it was limited edition for Valentine’s Day so I considered it my gift lol!

And the last thing was from BBW, I went straight for the Sleep Pillow Mist, I love this stuff, I spray it before going to sleep and believe me that I sleep without waking up until next morning, it’s very calming and relaxing and smells amazing, so I got the body cream as well. If you get the chance try these products they are amazing.

And that’s all for me right now! Have you tried one of these products?? If so what are your thoughts??

  • Ahava Intensive Nourishing Hand Cream
  • Garnier Undereye Roll On Concealer
  • Revlon Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow (My Holy Grail Go To Red)

What Should I Take to a Spinning Class?

I remember when I took my first spinning class a couple of years ago, I did not know what to bring or what to expect. I decided that it would be a good idea to make a video showing you what are the necessary things you need for a Spinning Class, in case you are interested in taking one.

Enjoy!
