Review: Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Barefoot and primarily vegan (Elemis does animal testing in China when legally required to do so) Elemis is a British wellness brand located in London. Nature powers their products: by sourcing natural extracts that catalyse each other and harness the power of nature’s finest active ingredients, and because of it, they can deliver results that you can see and feel, both inside and out. Elemis has blossomed into a darling company with a cult following of beauty addicts. It offers up its products in artisanal glass jars—a gorgeous design that not only keeps the contents fresh but also showcases the balm’s beautiful buds and pistils. Packed with nutrients and essential oils blessed by Mother Earth herself, Elemis’ Rose Cleansing Balm features nourishing cleansing balms that leave your skin silky soft and rejuvenated. In addition to the balm, the company offers eye and body care products as well as more conventional skincare options like serums and exfoliating treatments.

This was the first product Ive used from this brand and the soothing balm melts into a rich cleansing oil to dissolve make-up and impurities on the skin. Upon contact with water, it emulsifies to a hydrating milk that easily rinses off, creating an exceptional cleansing experience. It nourishes the skin’s lipid barrier, soothing it with hydration, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.

It is for sure a well formulated cleansing balm made from the finest ingredients which is super important for removing dirt, oil, and makeup without causing irritation. The unique balm formula contains no Phthalates (a synthetic chemical that can be irritating to sensitive skin), SLS (a chemical commonly found in cosmetics).

I have been using This now for about 3 weeks and love how easy it is to remove a full face of makeup and how amazing my skin feels after. We are currently in the Sequoias and all the hiking and experiences leave you extremely dirty and dusty. Using the balm to deep clean and effortlessly remove all traces of eww was sooo nice! 😂 THIS is definitely being added to My Holy Grail: Skincare Edition. It is super soft, hydrating and moisturizing . And most importantly this cleanser smells sooo amazing!! I will be honest and say their products are a little more on the pricy-er side but what skincare with proven clinal trials isnt?! You can save 15% off when you sign up to their email list. Also you can check out all their products HERE.

I am for sure trying out other products from the brand! Have you used this brand before? Let me know in the comments below.

The best pair of denim shorts for summer: #Ootd

As we start to get ready for warmer weather. Naturally shorts would be on the list of items you want to purchase. With the many different brands, options and cost it can be so difficult tho. So when I find great-looking, high quality shorts that are comfortable and affordable I have to share.

Introducing Fenty’s new blurring skin tint [Review]

Okay So I wanted to provide a quick review on the new Fenty Eaze drop blurring skin tint. The Sephora Seasonal Savings Event Is happening right now and this should definitely be on your list…

This is a lightweight, buildable light-to-medium coverage liquid skin tint that leaves your skin looking blurred and smoothed. This product is Free of parabens and phthalates. It is also vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

I have been wearing it since our trip to vegas about two weeks ago and I loooove it. It is super easy-to-apply. Its very flexible and will quickly yet visibly even out your complexion with a blurred effect. I love the HydraBlend complex within it that causes it to be humidity & sweat, transfer-resistant! It lasted all day in the hot Vegas heat with no touch ups. It has a smooth texture that layers well with primer and skincare. Overall I give this product a 10 out of 10 and will add it to my Holy grail.

HOW TO USE IT

This product was made to layer with your skincare snd primer so after applying all your skincare You will definitely need to Shake well before use and apply a few drops with fingers or foundation brush or as I love to use a beauty blender.
It is buildable so you can put as much as needed to achieve the coverage.desired.

Brand Review: KellParker || & the cutest designer inspired sandals for spring

Hi loves!! Happy Tuesday! I am so excited about this item I received yesterday that I had to write a post about ASAP!!

KellParker is a brand of 3 long time friends who love fashion and want to curate the fashion experience to YOU, ME & EVERYONE! They always put fashion first, which for me as a blogger who looks for the latest trends and deals says sooo much! They also are working moms and like me, in addition to many of the woman in the world change the narrative that we as woman can be great mothers, run a household, AND follow our dreams!! I mean is their anything else not to like about this brand?!?

Now let me just be 100% transparent and completely honest. The designer inspired sandals upon which this post is focused on #1 were gifted to me. (Thank you Kellparker!) #2 this is NOT a sponsored post so I was not obligated to write this post. I genuinely love this brand and wanted to share. #3 I have purchased two other pieces from this brand before this gifting and #4 I really do love this brand, what they stand for, the quality of their products and highly highly recommend checking them out!

Okay now that full disclosures have been mentioned, lets get into this review:

Click pic to shop!

First off I notice how amazingly similar these sandals are to the designer ones!! [side-note there is a full difference in designer inspired dupes and knock off replicas or counterfeit items & I wrote a blog post regarding that Here] These sandals are made out of faux leather and comes in the color tan, which basically goes with EVERYTHING! The look, feel and quality are soooo comparable its scary. The inspired pair actually feel a bit softer to me. I also notice how the inspired pair is a tad bit thinner in width on the sole of the shoe when compared to the designer pair.

The bottom of the sole is very durable and thick, yet comfortable when you stand and walk in. These sandals do run true to size as I am wearing my normal size 9. One thing I was worried about was the in between the toe area being uncomfortable as a lot of look for less sandals tend to irritate you here. However Kellparker has perfectly executed the covetousness of wanting the look for less while it still being of excellent quality I believe in my opinion. This brand should definitely be on our radar for the future. I see nothing but amazing pieces and continuous growth for this upcoming & young company!

Here are a couple other pieces that I have purchased and love!

These leopard and studded sneakers that give you the perfect look for less to the famous and yet crazy expensive golden goose sneakers. The quality is amazing and they are super comfortable. They run true to size.


Then I have These vegan chain mules that are just the cutest things! They give you that designer and trendy fashion look without breaking your bank account. These also run true to size and fit comfortably.

Below are my top picks! You can click on the pic to check out this amazing store. You will thank me later😉

Like I said before this trio of friends is doing it right! I totally look forward to seeing what this brand does in the future and cant wait to see more amazing pieces from them!

Happy Monday loves. I hope you are off to a great start to your week! If you follow me on Instagram then you know that Unfortunately I am writing this blog post from my in-laws home in Tecate, Mexico for the funeral of my hubby’s grandmother.

The cutest LBD/V Day inspo ||& Review: Gucci Beauty Natural Finish Foundation

O U T F I T – D E T A I L S

LBD- Express {wearing 6} (runs tts)

Love This and This one!

BOOTIES- Super old but similar Here and Here

PAPERBOY HAT- Nordstrom


It’s the 3rd Monday of the month and more specifically it’s MLK day. Which means there are sales going on every where!! I, myself like the next person loves me a good sale! I especially love taking advantage of sales for items that will not be an every day or regularly worn item. I get more bang for my buck since I won’t get a ton of use out of an item that isn’t quite a staple. Now if it’s one thing every woman needs in her wardrobe it’s a little black dress. This staple piece is literally a universal clothing item perfect for weddings, date nights (especially since Valentine’s Day is coming up) and every type of special occasion. I love the lace detailing and the puff sleeve is to die for.

Now moving into the foundation! This Gucci natural finish fluid foundation goes on soo nice and smooth and offers medium coverage that you can build on. I love it because I haven’t been wearing heavy makeup lately since being at home more so it’s so nice to have a lil something that isn’t so heavy and offers nice coverage. I did notice that it does have a very light scent (not bad) to it that I actually like. Kind of smells like one of their lite perfumes to me! I also like that it’s non greasy, wears very well all day and is available in an array of shades ranging from super light to super dark. I’ve worn it now a couple of times and it is for sure a foundation that I’m keeping in my rotation!

P.s a little update regarding my posting schedule here. One of my goals for my blog is to post more often. So I will be slowly incorporating 5 blog posts a week/1 x daily. Now I know life gets in the way so that’s why I said slowly haha. Regardless of all 5 posts I will most definitely be posting at least my 3 weekly post as usual. Thank you guys for being here. And if you have any suggestions to offer you can always contact me or comment.

Until next time,

{COMPLETE OUTFIT DETAILS Here}


Second week of the year? How are we doing so far??! I know the world seems a bit crazy right now but if you are able to read this right now, you are significantly blessed and I hope you feel that way and are thankful. Moving on into today’s post, I want to talk a little bit about skincare. We are in the winter season and while a winter wonderland sounds like the perfect scenario for the even more perfect post for the gram. The colder temperatures that this season brings can actually deplete your skins moisture and leave it super dry and dull. But have no fear my friends I’m letting you in on a little secret today as to why I believe serums are absolutely perfect during the winter season.

What is a serum you might ask? They are usually lightweight products that pack a big punch! They contain a high concentration of active ingredients. They absorb super quick into your skin and are perfect for after you cleanse. Like any and everything else there are all kinds of serums that are designed to do different things. What I do like about them is they can be layered on top of another. In other words you can use multiple serums on your face at a time. Some are even designed to work together with other serums.

I recently collaborated with Maelove over the last month and tried out their products to incorporate in my personal winter skincare routine and found that I absolutely love their The One Cream..

Click pic to shop!

After applying the one cream I put the Eye enhancer on (this has helped my puffy under eye bags a ton)…

Click pic to shop!

Then lastly I apply the Glow maker antioxidant serum

Click pic to shop!

Now for my night time routine after cleansing my face I use their Night Renewer Glycolic Acid Cream

Click pic to shop!

Followed by the Eye Enhancer again…

Click pic to shop!

And lastly their Love 31 Precious Face Oil

Click pic to shop!

Like I said I have been using this product for over 3 weeks now and have found it very beneficial in keeping my skin hydrated during the colder and much drier season currently. I have also found my skin Still feels hydrated even after I have awoken in the morning snd I absolutely love that. (Pro-tip use a silk based pillow case when you sleep at night so the product on your face doesn’t get absorbed & lost in your Cotten based pillow case😉) I highly recommend This one! You will find your skin improves drastically when it is able to absorb all of your night time skin products effectively.

Thank you for stopping by & until next time…

My FINAL Sephora favorites of 2020: December {what I’ve been loving}

Happy Monday friends! I do hope you all enjoyed your holiday! I definitely took advantage of the time off to just be present with my family, not be on social media, relax and not work. I have to say it was so so nice and going into the last week of 2020 all I can say is WOW! I Can’t believe this is my last Sephora faves post for this year! I mean this year went by soooo fast and yet sooooo slow all at the same time it’s crazy! This has been such a fun segment to do each and every month and I really do enjoy it and can’t wait to add even more products to the list monthly! I also included a few pics of some of the lippies I really liked from the Give me more lip gift set (pictured above) like I said I would in the beginning of the month!

1. YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge

This lipstick is such a pretty red! Very hydrating and stays on alll day/night!

2. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw

This is another really good deep and bright red! Perfect for a nice date night, special occasion or even the holiday season. I love that it glides on super smooth! Definitely one of my fave reds thus far.

3. NARS lipstick in Tolède

This is such a nice nude! I love how you can pair it with a simple basic everyday makeup look or wear it with a full glam look! It was also hydrating and didn’t leave my lips dry.

4. Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Matte Long Wear Lipstick in Sell Out

Ok I have to say when I first tried this lipstick it wasn’t my fave but then I tried it with this lip liner and I loved the way it looked after. This is a good nude for all seasons but especially the spring time.

5. Dior Backstage Glow face palette in Pure Gold

Now this palette is definitely being added to my list of holy grails!! It photographs super well (I’m wearing it in the pic) The glow that it gives is sooo beautiful and I just love how it has 4 different shades for multiple looks that can range from a day to night look.

6. NARS Orgasm X Blush

I remember when this blush first came out and it was super popular. I wasn’t in to makeup like that then. But let me just say it is the nicest deep coral color that goes so well with my skin tone and I’m obsessed!!


P.s Pink Lily is having an end of the year sale of up to 65% off! Click pic below to shop the sale tab:
