Busy Gal Goodies by BabbleBoxx

Happy Happy Friday!!!!  Yay for another short week  and the weekend!

We have been soooooooo busy at work and it seems like my boss has just been in the office like everyday!  I know, that’s what offices are for but he usually travels all week and might pop in on Fridays. So when he is there, I am always behind on emails and have to catch up on everything in the eventings. He has at least fifty bullets on the to-do list and maybe 2-3 of them get done a day lol – Trust me, I do love my job and I am blessed to have it but when you have your way of doing things and your own routine and then it gets interrupted, its pretty stressful! I hope y’all can relate 🙂

 

Today, I’m going to be giving you all a little review/roundup of what was in my recent Babblebox which consisted of a bunch of different products that I’m all giddy inside for. And the best part is, I have some amazing offers for most of the brands as well so make sure to keep reading on!

 

 

Coobie Bralette

babblebox

 

 Bralettes are a sexy alternative for everyday wear. They are made with soft, stretchy lace for more comfort. The cups are lined with a soft, thin nylon blend that provides coverage without the bulk. This Coobie bralette is probably my favorite item from this box. This bralette is free of pads and wires but it still makes a beautiful cleavage. The straps are adjustable and include a mid strap hook on the back so you can wear it in a racerback style. This bralette is available in three sizes small, medium and large.

 

Bloom Mineral Skincare Set

 

I am not usually one to try skincare products without looking at reviews first but this stuff looked amazing right out of the box. Bloom Mineral Beauty is a brand to put on your radar, especially if you are looking to try out natural beauty products. This four piece set is a perfect simple skincare routine even the busiest of girls can follow. The set comes with a cleanser, moisturizer, mask and eye cream. I haven’t had much time to focus on self-care lately, and that needs to change. I do however always follow a skincare routine and mask at least once a week. The bloom Mineral Beauty Ready.Set.Hydrate set is $39 and an excellent way to try out the brand.

You have the chance to save 25% with code “skin25” – good through June 30. This offer is limited of 2 uses per customer.

 

Clear Eyes Pure Relief®

 

 

I am always messing with my eyes during the day from scaring at a computer screen. My contacts will dry out so easily. Clear Eyes Pure Relief®, helps to keep my eyes hydrated and itch free. Clear Eyes is the first preservative free eyes drop in a multidose bottle available at retail in the US. It’s also available in a dry eye formula if that is an issue for you. The bottle has a built in purifying filter that keeps bacteria out, eliminating the need for preservatives. Click here to download a coupon that will save you $3 when you purchase.

 

Nad’s Hair Removal Cream

 

 

Another item I want to talk about is the Nad’s Hair Removal Cream.  I actually used this when I was younger when my mom wouldn’t let me use a razor. Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream is designed for painless hair removal; formulated with natural extracts of melon, aloe vera, avocado Oil and honey to help soothe and protect sensitive skin. What I love about the product it is perfect for the shower because it does not drip. It is also simple, quick and removes hairs easily, with no pain! I just want to let you know please do not exceed 10 minutes, and when done just wipe away cream with cloth and rinse.
I was truly happy to receive this awesome box which included a lot of my daily essential. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.
What are some of your favorite subscription boxes?

April Beauty Favs

beauty favorites

1. IT Cosmetics CC Cream : Yup,I know I am late to the game but I couldn’t help but share of course! I was so stuck on my go-to Makeup Forever foundation, I didnt want to change. Finally took the plunge and decided to try the CC cream. This stuff is amazing and cuts my routine time in half! And my skin still looks fresh and clean. SPF50 is a huge must have !

2. BabyBliss Curling Wand: I can create beachy S-waves within a few seconds per section. I have medium-long hair and lots of it, and I can style my whole head within 20 minutes. I love this wand! And it rarely catches or breaks my hair. Totally affordable compared to other brands.

3. VS Love Spell Perfume : Absolutely love this scent. This was my first VS perfume purchase, and I must say I am pleased. I use the lotion and perfume together, and the scent lasts all day indoors. I love fruity scents so the guava is what attracted me to try it out.

4. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion:  THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING IVE EVER USED.  The first night I used it, it was a little messy but I didnt apply correctly. I put a dab on two spots that were creeping up… both acne spots were gone the next day!  Its pretty much a magic cream for pimples!

5. Rodial Snake Serum:  This stuff is AMAZE!!!  inspired by the effects of the temple viper venom, smoothes the look of skin and reduces the visual appearance of wrinkles.

6. NYX Matte Lip Cream:  I love the vibrant color of this product! I have received so many compliments when I wear it because even though it is a brighter color, it still makes a difference to your look! I love it! If it lasted a little longer it would be perfect but i mean for the price…I won’t complain much about it!

7. PUR Foundation Brush: I have been looking for a foundation brush to replace my dying kabuki. This makes putting on my foundation easy and smooth. If you don’t want to go out and buy a set, this is a good choice.

8. Marc Jacobs Highlighter : I absolutely love this product. I use it over my foundation and can see a difference immediately. It gives such a beautiful, natural glow. The coverage lasts all day and smells amazing.

What are some beauty products are a loving?

Casual Metallics

Monday, we meet again! I hope y’all had an amazing Mothers Day weekend with all your family and friends. I had such a great day yesterday being “pampered” with a makeover from my son, brunch with family and of course a fun trip to Target! Couldnt think of a better day 🙂

I have been loving the warmer weather lately and wanted to share these metallic shorts that I cant stop wearing!

casual metallic shorts

Shorts // Chambray Top // Sneakers // Clutch // Hair Band

When I first found these shorts, I knew I HAD to have them. Metallic, silver & pockets??….I will take five pairs!!! I have already worn them several times and every time someone stops to ask where I got them! AND they are under $20!!

I initially wore an oversized sweater back in March but totally forgot to snap some photos. With the warmer weather, they will still be on repeat and can be styled so many different ways! For a more casual look, I paired them with my favorite chambray top. This pink clutch adds a pop of color and of course you cant go wrong with a touch of leopard print. I spent the day shopping so the hair was up for the day. Another touch of leopard print never hurts so I slid on my go-to headband!

glitter top

I also styled them awhile back with this amazing graphic tee! This tee couldn’t explain my motto in life more perfectly!!

I hope y’all have an amazing week babes!!

Floral Layered Romper

Happy Monday y’all!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend and had a great time with all the Cinco De Mayo celebrations! We ate LOTS of tacos and then continued the celebration Saturday night with MORE fajitas and mararitas! Guess thats what you do when your husband is all about the FIESTA!!!I actually took a little break from social media this weekend which was very refreshing. Sometime you just need to unplug and enjoy the moments with family and friends.

I wanted to share this floral romper I wore to the blogger happy hour last week….

ROMPER , Sold out  (Similar, Similar)// WEDGES // HAT // CLUTCH // SUNGLASSES 

I wore this to our blogger happy hour we had last week. It was a fun group of local Dallas Bloggers who are not only the prettiest group of ladies ever but they are also ALL moms!! I will share more of our fun little get together later in the week.

Rompers just have a fun, playful vibe to them and I couldn’t wait to style this one when the weather finally warmed up!  The halter detail makes it a perfect springtime transition piece and I just love the floral print!  This romper has everything I love in a spring/summer outfit. I am a fan of the no fuss appeal of a romper…easy to throw on, minimal accessories, paired with a wedge or strappy heel and be out the door!  I can’t believe how much that I love this on my short physique. It is the perfect length too. Unfortunately, it is sold out but I have linked very similar and affordable ones. I am hoping it will come back in stock very soon!!!

Hope you have an awesome week!

Beauty Favorites Lately

I am a little behind on the beauty department shares. I have been loving so many things but these are a few of my favorites!!! 🙂

 

KAT VON D Lock-IT Foundation: When I first used this product, it applied really thick and blotchy. Then I went back to using my usual foundation and noticed it wasnt lasting as long as this one did. I tried using it again and actually adding a tiny bit of water to help make it easier to apply. It totally helped and this stuff is amazing!

TARTE Make Believe In Yourself Palette: Most of you know I love anything with some sparkle. This stuff has the right amount of color and sparkle and is not overwhelming. It is also a cheek palette and the color lasts all day! Totally worth it!

KENRA Color Balance Purple Shampoo: I used this product daily for one week and had a noticeable change in my hair’s brassiness! I have always had heavy blonde highlights in my hair that turn brassy over time. I’ve tried several other products that I was less than satisfied with but this one definitely works! It smells great and doesn’t leave your hair feeling or looking greasy! I would recommend this to anyone that colors their hair blonde!

HOPE in a Jar Skin Tint: I have used Hope in a Jar for awhile now as my daily moisturizer. When I saw this version I was like “Bye Bye Pale Face”!!! Moisturizer + Bronzer = Amazing! I use this everyday as a primer before my foundation!

St. Tropez Self Tanner Mouse: Speaking of bronzer… this stuff has been my lifesaver for my see-through skin! I worked for a tanning salon for 5 years and would spray tan like every other day. GROSE! These days the spray tan solution are so much better than they used to be. The application and color of this stuff is so natural looking. No streaking or weird spots. Perfect for summer!

 BED HEAD Flat Iron: My CHI finally went out after 10 years! I have no idea how it even lasted that long (or how I never lost it)… I heard so many great things about this one and it definitely does not disappoint. It heats up super fast and I only straighten each strand once! Game changer!

EMJOI Electric Razor: I received this from the company in return for a review and I was a little nervous to try it. I normally dont use electric razors for anything. I used it on my bikini line before we went to Mexico and it was really easy. (Kinda weird but definitely easier than regular shaving) It has 18 blades and doesnt leaves cuts or scratches. 🙂

BITE BEAUTY Lipstick:  I first got this lipstick from Influenster for testing purposes and fell in love. I had nt heard of the brand before but I love the quality so much. It literally lasts all day! The texture and the color are amazing. I love it!

I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend ladies!!!
