My Favorite Beauty Bloggers!

Happy Wednesday, or shall we say Hump Day! Today I wanted to do something different and write about some of my favorite beauty bloggers.  Its been three years since I started following some of my favorite beauty enthusiasts.  What I look for in a beauty bloggers channel is honesty, real reviews, unique style, flawless natural beauty as well as a BEAT face.  I will list some of my favorites so that you can enjoy as well!

The GlamTwinz334 – These girls were my first YouTube subscription. I am not sure how they came across my feed but after watching a few videos I was an instant fan.  What makes them unique is that they are twins and have such an interesting collaboration that that set out to grow their hair natural, and with length at that.  They have tailbone natural hair and they started their hair journey years ago.  They showcase tips and products they like to use with honest feedback.  They have a cute style that gave me a lot of ideas when trying to change up my hair.  They match their make up to what they are wearing and its fun to watch and get ideas on styles.  They are very particular about their style like me which I can appreciate.  Besides “Get Ready With Me make up tutorials, Fashion Hauls from stores like Zara, Pretty Little Thing, Asos, Fashion Nova and other online boutiques, I really enjoy their Favorite Product Reviews, they also have a VLOG channel where they show their travels, events, and just day to day life activities. Must See!

Amynicolaox – She is also one of my first subscriptions. I like her channel because she does a lot of fashion reviews.  Most her clothes are high end but every now and then she will reviews on affordable lines.  She is very detailed and honest which I like.  Also, she is from Canada which is cool, and she has a  unique accent.  This makes her stand out and has variety.  She also is really into fitness so she aims to show alot of her work out routines, and healthy meal preps. If your into fashion and fitness she is pretty entertaining to view. Must See!

Brannygiz – I love her channel because she is your everyday relate-able woman.  She is in her late thirties and reviews on affordable finds from store like Home Goods, Ross, Marshall’s, Sephora, Ulta and almost all the usual stores I enjoy shopping.  Whats cool is she is also from Chicago which so am I!  She does a lot of make up reviews, hair reviews, clothing hauls, home shopping hauls and VLOGS of her everyday life.  She is definitely a favorite because her looks are affordable and she aims her VLOGS to the average around the day woman of all ages.  She caters to a mature audience which can be hard to find in the beauty world, when majority are teens- twenty year old.  Must See!                                                                                                                                                unnamed (1)

September Favorites!

Hey loves! I wanted to share some of my recent favorites with you all.  I know its been a while so I am long overdue for a post.  If you tried any of these products or have similar faves please comment below so I can try them out as well. 

  1. Nike VaporMaxx Running Shoes – I love these sneakers!  If you are looking for slim fit, comfort as if you walking on air, a sneaker you can wear without socks that wont have your feet sweating, this is the shoe!  The sneak has small air pickets that allow your feet to breath while wearing.  The tongue is thin and fits to your ankle for a slim comfortable fit made for walking and or running.  This shoe comes in men’s and women’s sizes, and various colors to fit your personality.  The best part I like it is the air sole which makes each step comfortable.  They are on the pricey side and will run you about 200.00.

2. Bahama Breeze Restaurant – This is a Caribbean style restaurant who has the best selection of pasts and seafood dishes.  Some of their most popular dishes include jerk chicken entrees, lobsters, steak, and for those not into seafood you can get soups, salads and burgers.  My favorite dish is the shrimp and lobster pasta, its a fettuccine dish with shrimp and pasta.  Soooo goood! You can also choose from a bunch of specialty cocktails and drinks.  My favorite is the Bahamarita which is a frozen drink which you can get virgin or with Tequila.  Check your local area to see if there is a Bahama Breeze near you. I am in the Chicago area, so the closest one to me is in Schaumburg IL. about 30 min outside the city.

3. Garnier Sensitive Face Wash – This has been great for my skin, and does not leave residue.  It gets into my pores and leaves me with a nice glow before adding moisturizer.  I usually wash my face with this product twice a day and it really has helped me to eliminate breakouts.  It will run you about 8.99 in retail stores.

4.  Apple Air Pods – These are the absolute best!  They are blue tooth ear buds and you can go hands free without a cord or anything connected.  They come with this cute charging case that keeps them ready for use.  They sink with any blue-tooth device.  They will run you about 200.00 but are so well worth it! You wont regret them.

5. Rosati’s Pizza – This may just be a Chicago Pizza spot so I apologize if you cannot fine one near you but they have the best pizza…why? Their pizza sauce and cheese is delicious and the pizza is always hot upon delivery.   This pizza even taste great re-warmed. To me, its the seasoning and the taste of the cheese, if you are in or near Chicago, try it, if there is a location near you.

May Favorites!

Hey! Its been a while since I did a favorites post, we are almost through the month of May 2018, and I want to share some of the things that I really enjoyed the past few weeks! Lets go!

Nivea Hydrating Lotion – this lotion is smooth, and melts right into your skin. It definitely keeps you hydrated.  It has a soft fragrance that is not overbearing.  It can be purchased pretty much anywhere and runs you between 8-10.00 depending on where you go.  Its worth a try if you want something new for the summer.

Fenty Beauty Glow Bomb Lip Gloss – This gloss is the bomb!  Its a neutral color that goes with any outfit, great for the summer.  Leaves your lips plump and pretty.  It runs about 18.00 at Sephora but great to keep in your pocketbook to keep your lips moisturized with a glow!

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Palette – This is still my favorite palette, it has some gorgeous shades, and the colors blend well.  This is a all seasons palette.  Its pretty pricey but one of their best.  It will run you about 50.00 for this palette. There is slight fall out because the colors are so pigmented so a little gets you a long way.

No.7 Beautiful Skin Daily Moisturizer- I have just changed my skin care routine and have been using this daily moisturizer with 25 SPF.  It is the bomb.  It does not break me out and leaves my skin hydrated and clear. I pair this with the No.7 Beautiful skim Foam cleanser and age defying serum.  This runs you about 15.00 so its very affordable and can be purchased at Walgreens.

Carolina Herrera – Good Girl Perfume – this is one of my favorite perfumes, its smells soooo good.  Not to mention the packaging is dope, I love it.  Next time your shopping for a new fragrance, this is worth a try.

Current Favorites!

Good morning!  Today I wanted to share some of my favorites.  Many of these things are random but its always cool to share interests so others can try them out as well.  My favs wont be in any specific order but definitely take a look and try them out if interested.

Restaurants – I am from Chicago so most of these are in major cities.

Benihana – I am a super fan of Hibachi.  My husband and I have tried many Hibachi restaurants but they “take the cake.”  I typically go with the Benihana Delight which has Fried rice, teriyaki chicken and colossal shrimp. What makes them so good is you get a 5 course meal which includes Miso Soup, Salad with Ginger dressing, shrimp and veggie appetizer, fried rice and your main course. You also get dessert which is your choice of ice cream.  Prices are reasonable about 23-33.00 per meal depending on what main course you order.This is a great family outing or date night place. https://www.benihana.com/

steak_and_lobster

Ruth Chris – This place has the best Lobster Mac and Cheese, and stuffed chicken.  If you are looking for a great place to have a semi-expensive meal or date night, try them.  The stuffed chicken is seasoned perfectly. I usually get asparagus or the creamed spinach as sides. The prices range is about 100.00 or so for two people.  This can make a difference if you order drinks or not.  Its def worth trying out if you haven’t already. https://www.ruthschris.com/

Twin Peaks – This is a new sports bar that has a Hooters type feel.  It has good bar food and drinks, with many TV’s to watch the game.  They also have an outside patio where you can eat outside, or watch the game on TV’s outside during the warmer months ( I am in Chicago, so its cold here lol). It has great lemon pepper wings, and Fish tacos.  They have beer specials and a decent selection of cocktail drinks.  If you have one in your area its worth checking out. https://twinpeaksrestaurant.com/

happy-birthday-to-me

Zara Clothing – I love this store because they have very unique pieces.  The jeans fit great but can be hit or miss depending on how curvy you are. This is a UK brand so the sizes run smaller than American sizes. Its a very fashionable store if you want to look cute and trendy and have some original pieces in your closet. Price wise when they have a sale, you can get some great deals, but they can run on the pricier side. They cater to men and women ages small kids to maybe about 40 or so. https://www.zara.com/us/

zara-store

Akira Store – This is my absolute go to store for shopping! This is the “Im a baddie, and wanna hit the club with my girls boutique. The clothes are typically for a women 18-40 ish depending on your style of dress.  They can be pretty pricey but if you catch a sale, your winning! They pretty much follow the latest trends and ship all over the country. https://www.shopakira.com/

Sephora – If you a woman who loves make up, you will have a frenzy in this store, they are the queens of skincare and make up brands. I can go broke in this place. I have to go when I get paid cause if not I will walk out without my coins. They are pricey. Period. If you want to find great products and top of the line brands, this is your store.

Migos – Right now if I am in the turn up mood, I go to the Migos. Their culture II album is pretty good if you don’t mind the lyrics. They do talk about certain subjects that may give you a headache, but honestly I just listen to the beat when I am in a turn-up mood.

H.E.R. – She is the bomb.  She has sultry soulful music that puts you in a laid back trance.  Its easy to ride to in the car, or listen to while getting dressed to go out. She has a soulful vice with a mystery feel.  Its definitely worth a listen if you like fresh R&B.

NetFLIX – I refuse to pay for cable again because to me its such a waste of money. Half of the shows I never watched when we did buy it.  Honestly if you have internet, just having Netflix which has thousands of shows and movies for only 12.00 a month, you can beat it.  I also like HULU which is similar to NetFlix just has more TV shows. So if you looking to save on cable, I would go with NetFlix.  https://www.netflix.com/
