If you haven't noticed by all the lip balm posts I've been posting its lip balm season! This us about the time I put away my everyday lipstick and wear lip balm during the day. Don't get me wrong I still wear lipstick, just not to school anymore.

I bought my first tin of Smith's lip balm at least 2 years ago. So the fact that I did repurchase I want to say now that I do love this product. Here's why:
Pros
  • Minty, tingly feeling left behind
  • Slight pink gloss tint left on lips
  • Keeps lips chap-free AND soft
  • smells yummy, taste okay.


Cons
  • Low melting point can lead to mess


VERDICT: I may be bias but I do love this lip balm. It's great, and just wonderful. It is a bit pricy for a lip balm about $7 for a tint. It's worth every penny though. I strong suggest you buy it to try it out!

Valentines Gift Idea for your Boyfriend/Fiancé/Husband

Affiliated links. 

I was never really a Valentine's Day mush. It was the holiday that I got chocolate and a gift if I had a boyfriend at the time. When I started dating Mr. J everything changed. I got into the holiday a bit more. I had fun thinking of a way to surprise him and make him smile.

I am all about giving a gift that has meaning. Not something that is just a shiny object. Here are some tips to find the perfect gift for your guy.

Note: I am linking the pictures to the sites where I found the images from for my examples  There photos do not belong to me, nor were taken by me. 
  1. Does he like sports? Does he have a favorite sport team?

    •  If so you could get him a shirt or a team jersey. 
    • Get an item with their logo on it. Such as bag, or phone case or reusable water bottle.
  1. Is he a wrestling fan?
  2. last minute valentines day gifts, last minute valentines day gifts for him, valentines day gifts for boyfriend, valentines day gifts for fiancé, valentines day gift for husband, valentines day gift, gift idea
    Matching Tag Team Miniature Belts
    • You could get him a mini title belt for his key chain. For example a double team title belt. Or even tickets to see the WWE live when they come to town next.
  3. Does he have a favorite color?
    • You could get him a phone case or shirt in his favorite color. There is nothing wrong with basic items. last minute valentines day gifts, last minute valentines day gifts for him, valentines day gifts for boyfriend, valentines day gifts for fiancé, valentines day gift for husband, valentines day gift, gift idea

  4. Does he like a certain activity?
    • Mr. J LOVES to fish. You could get him fishing supplies.
    •  Or you could turn it into something cute like what I did. I bought this tackle box and filled it with gummy worms, and gummy fish. With the saying on top "I'm hooked on you!"

  5. Does he have a favorite candy or snack?
    • I bought Mr. J his favorite candy last year all red starburst. They love the fact you pay attention and do something thoughtful for them. It shows them you care!

  • Love notes are something not to be over looked. No matter how unmushy your other is he will still appreciate a note filled with why you love him, and how special he makes you feel.
  • Cook something for him!

  • Last year I also made Red Velvet Cupcakes.

  • This year I plan to make him Chocolate Chip Muffins and I plan to tape "Stud Muffin" to the top of it! Silly things make them smile! I bought the container and the cupcake foils at the dollar store! Such a steal! Try to make a different sweet each year to keep him guessing.

Another great idea is book a hotel stay for a little get away - What I also did for Mr. J! I didn't book it for Valentine's Day Weekend. We are staying in Atlantic City for a few nights during restaurant week! We are both super excited for this!

Remember this isn't about who can give the better gift. Valentin's day to me is about showing your love one how much you truly care about them.

I've been wearing my glasses lately and decided to do this video for a basic makeup look. In my mind basic tends to be a bit better than wild sometimes.

Having the QVC app to downloaded on your phone makes it beyond easy to check the shows schedule for the following month. In this post I want to give you guys a beauty show round up and potential deals to save your money up for!


First up is Tarte!




Tarte has the 12 am spot on February 13, Friday which means they will be the one to have a Today Special Value. I have no idea what it could possible for the TSV but it's usually some sort of makeup kit. I've seen lots of times Tarte is the TSV and they either do a foundation kit or an eyeshadow kit.

UPDATE 02/06: I do not know exactly what this TSV will be but on Tarte's Instagram page they posted this! Which means they are releasing a limited edition collection that will only be available for one day only, according to their instgram page.

I will updated once I know what it will be! 


Next up is Wen by Chaz Dean
Edit 02/17/15: So far for the month of March Wen will be on March 11th, 2015 for only two designated shows so far. at 1-2pm and 10-11pm. I do not know what they will air or who will be on the show yet. So far no TSV until at least after March 17th. There might be some One Time Offers but I do not know what they could be. 


Wen is not in any 12 am slots this month, but the weekend of 20, 21, and the 22 there are quite a few Wen time slots. I have no idea if it will be Wen's creator or Gianna his spokes women that weekend. What I do know is they usually do at least a One Time Only deal when they are on for just a few shows. So I am defiantly saving my pennies for that weekend!

NOTE: While there is no TSV in the Month of February announced there will most likely be a TSV in March when the new Spring Seasonals are released! I'm 99.8% sure this will probably happen, but nothing is yet officially released yet! 

Friday

Also March 1st is the first day for the spring seasonals! Which I am still crossing my fingers that he will bring back Wen Gardenia Green Tea Cleansing conditioner which is my favorite right next to Bamboo Green Tea and Fig!

Now theses are all my assumptions so please don't bring the pitch forks and burn me of I'm wrong.

What are you excited to see on QVC this month?

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Silky touch 18inches 140grams Review + Demo

Purchased.

With engagement photo shoot #2 coming up, I wanted to do things very different in hopes that I'll be happy with these photos. There were many reasons I didn't like the photos and most of them were at no fault of the photographer. One of them being how wacky my hair was that day. I decided I was going to do what I really wanted and go for that long curly hair look. Which led me to try Irresistible Me Silky Touch hair extensions. Click down below to see what I think of these hair extensions!
