Nico 8 Month Update!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a splendid day. Today I wanted to talk to you about my puppy, I know it’s been a minute.

First, he’s getting so big. That’s to be expected, he is a German Shepherd after all, I just remember when he was small, he’s grown so much and I can’t believe he’s just gonna get bigger. Here is a picture when we first got him.

His biting has not improved, if anything it has gotten worse, now especially because his teeth are so big. But I remember someone commented on my last puppy post to not use so much negative reinforcement, and that has helped because whenever we would slap him on the nose or hold his mouth shut, he would be viscous back, so that’s good I guess.

We discovered some different ways to preoccupy him as far as the chewing goes. I found that he really enjoys chewing on pig ears. We are constantly buying him cow hooves to chew on, and he loves them even more when you fill them with peanut butter or but the pre-filled ones with beef or bacon flavor.

We have started taking him to training classes, and I feel his behavior has improved, and he has learned basic commands like sit and down.

About last week, he started acting like a boy, if you know what I mean. He formed a relationship with one of my favorite teddy bears and absolutely destroyed it. But we are definitely going to be taking him to the vet very soon to get him fixed.

That’s about it for his update. Even though, he’s a pain in my butt, I love him so much, more than I thought I ever could. He does have an Instagram account if you’re interested, it’s Nicothegsd13. Thank you so much for reading!

Decluttering Highlighters/Highlighter Collection

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a great day, sorry for the lack of posts this week. Today I wanted to declutter my highlighters, but I realized after going through them that there wasn’t really any of them that I wanted to get rid of, so instead, here is my highlighter collection.

Tarte Shape Tape Foundation Review

Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing well. I have an exciting review for today, or at least I’m excited about it. I was finally able to get my hands on the Tarte Shape Tape Foundation, the hydrating formula. I swatched them in the store, and I felt that the matte one was patchy, and the hydrating one just kind of blended in with my skin, so it was a no brainer. I was able to try it out for real, and I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

As for my first impression I like it. When I first applied it on my face, it blended in so nicely with my skin. I wouldn’t say its completely full coverage, it’s more of an in between of a medium and full coverage, if there’s a such thing. It feels almost the same as the concealer, even though the applicators are very similar, I can feel that there is more product with the foundation. However, I would love to test the foundation against the concealer alone.

For the foundation itself, it feels really nice on my skin. Maybe its in combination with using a good moisturizer but my skin literally felt hydrated the entire day. And I didn’t really notice it fading much. The only places that it faded that I could notice were around my mouth, below my nose.

If I’m going to be completely honest, I’ve only applied it with a brush, I haven’t tested it out with any makeup sponges, I’m not sure if that would make a difference. But as for my final thoughts, I really like this Foundation, I’ve been using it everyday , it hasn’t let me down yet. I’m not telling you to go out and spend your money on this Foundation, but if I were to recommend one, this is one I would recommend especially if you have dry skin or are looking for a Foundation that will give you a dewy look. I hope you all enjoyed and thank you so much for reading!

Declutter With Me: Bronzers

Hello everyone, I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday. Today I have another declutter post for you all and I will be decluttering my bronzers. Luckily I don’t have too many, but I think I will mainly be getting rid of my non cruelty free products and very old ones.

The ones on top are the ones I will be getting rid of, and the ones on the bottom will be the ones I will be keeping. I noticed a few of these, I only have used a couple of times, but I’ll probably go back and get rid of the ones, I will most likely never use.

That is it for this delcuttering post, sorry it was so short and sweet. I hope you all enjoyed, and thank you for reading!

Declutter With Me: Primers and Powders

Hello everyone, I hope your day is wonderful, I have another declutter post for you and today I will be decluttering my primers and powders. This one is going to be a short one, my stash of primers and powders is pretty small.

IMG_2037

Surprisingly I have a few product empties, so no need to keep those. Then I have products from brands like Maybelline and Neutrogena, which aren’t cruelty free, so it is a must that I get rid of those. Also one product that I just don’t use and won’t really get use out of it is this NYC powder. There isn’t anything wrong with it, I’m just not a huge fan of loose powders and this one can get so messy, it’s just not one of my favorites.

IMG_2038

These are the products I will be keeping, its less than half the size it was before. Of all the makeup I have decluttered so far, this is probably the most where I have gotten rid of products.

That is it for this declutter post, I hope you all enjoyed, and thank you so much for reading!

 

Another Ulta Haul

Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a fabulous day, I recently took a trip to my nearest Ulta because I found somethingย  that I have been wanting for a while there, and I can’t wait to try it out and share my thoughts about it with you. But to keep you all in suspense, I’ll share some other things I picked up.

First, I went through the Nyx aisle, it was so tough, so much I wanted to pick up, but sadly I had to limit myself. First this eyeliner popped out at me. On the box, it had a similar look as the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner, and I know I recently tried out the Too Faced Sketch Marker, but I thought this one would be worth a try and who knows, it could be a dupe for it. I don’t know, we’ll see.

IMG_2093

Next from Nyx I picked up the Vivid Brights Creme Colour. I have seen this before, but never actually took the initiative to buy it and try it. I can try and use it for Valentine’s Day look, but who knows maybe even a festival look or maybe I can try to use it somehow when I put in a submission for the Nyx Face Awards.

Next I found something that I wasn’t super sure about at first. I think it’s limited edition which is kind of unfortunate, but oh well I guess. If I’m going to be honest, if it wasn’t on sale I wouldn’t have gotten it, but it is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette. I’ve actually never tried any of their eyeshadows, so maybe I’ll share my thoughts with you.

IMG_2094

I had to also pick up one of the Tarte Shape Tape Concealers, I picked up the one in Light Neutral, unfortunately they didn’t have the other one I wanted, but that’s okay, maybe next time.

IMG_2096

Lastly, the product I am most excited about is the Tarte Shape Tape Foundation! I absolutely cannot wait to try this out and review it for you all. I got the hydrating formula, I swatched the two in the store and based off the swatch, I could tell that the matte one was really dry and almost patchy. But I actually might go back and pick it up anyway. But look out for a review and other comparison posts!

That is it for this Ulta Haul. I hope you look forward to the future review posts like I am. Thank you so much for reading!
