3 Second Brow | First Impression and Review

I saw another YouTuber try the 3 Second Brow product and it turned out great so when I was in Walgreens I thought…I’ve got to try it for myself!

I purchased mine for $14.99 from Walgreens but here’s another link for you to purchase it for yourself.  I found it on Amazon for $9.99: 3 Second Brow

From what I could tell the product only came in one color that says it “will blend with most hair color and skin tones”.

The applicator is a sponge/foam type thing and it comes in two shapes.  One is an arched brow shape and the other is a curved brow shape.

When you put the product on it does take a little to get the product evenly on the applicator.  As you can see from the above pic, I didn’t quite get it even.  It also comes with a spoolie/angled brush tool so I used that to add some more product to the applicator.

I followed the directions as closely as I could.  This product does work but the application part is very tricky.

I was not successful on my first attempt but you can watch the full video here:  3 Second Brow Demo and First Impressions.

I will definitely try this again.  The product does stamp well but you have to really be careful in how you place it.  I will have to practice some more to perfect my technique.

Let me know what you think and if you’ve tried the product!

Superior Bathhouse Brewery in Hot Springs, AR

We took a spontaneous side trip to Hot Springs on our way home to Dallas and were delighted to pop in to Superior Bathhouse Brewery.

They are actually the first brewery in a U.S. National Park and the world’s first to utilize thermal spring water as their main ingredient.  It’s definitely a cool place to visit when you are in Hot Springs.

I’m not a beer drinker so we opted for their homemade root beer floats which really hit the spot.  They do offer a great selection of beers and typical pub style food.  They also have a friendly atmosphere and sell artisan products such as soap that is locally made.

I definitely want to come back when we have more time to experience the food and maybe even sample a beer!

5 Tips For An Awesome Morning

I think one of the key elements of a successful day is getting it started off right with an awesome morning.  Here are my top 5 tops to create that type of morning for yourself!

TIP #5 – Get up 15 minutes earlier
This might be the most difficult part of creating an awesome morning routine but it’s an important one.  Those that know me know that I love lounging in my bed and just relaxing in general but getting up 15 minutes earlier has helped me get a jumpstart on my day.  It’s a small enough time frame that your whole schedule won’t be out of whack but a large enough amount of time to get some things done without rushing.

TIP #4 – Put your phone down 
Once you are up…put your phone down.  It’s not productive for you to fall into the “I’m just going to check Facebook real quick….” trap.  Before you know it you are 30 minutes into a discussion about something that will not help you have a better day.

tZaKyGvOTJuOyMt2LOtMBA

Same thing goes with emails, don’t check those when you first get up.  Whatever is in those emails (or on Instagram or Pinterest) can wait.  If it was an emergency they’d call.  They wouldn’t wait for you to check your email.

 

TIP #3 – Stretch
This tip is something new that I’ve added to my morning routine this year.  Once I get up I just do some simple stretching to get my blood moving, loosen up any tension from the night before and just get myself in the attitude of taking on the day.

TIP #2 – Drink water and eat something
This is the thing I struggle with most.  I do try to drink a bottle of water, or a Yeti full of water in my case since that’s what I have by my bed.  I am typically not a breakfast eater.  Brunch on the weekends?  I’m down for that but a breakfast meal during the weekday is typically not my thing.

I know though that breakfast will help me with my energy levels later, with my metabolism and will just help give me a good start to my day.  You don’t have to prepare a big buffet, just a simple breakfast such as boiled eggs or cereal will get you going on the right foot.

I try to meal prep for the entire week on Sundays.  If you’d like to see a video or blog about that just let me know in the comments.  I have found that it really helps me keep focused with my eating and helps me with my morning routine knowing I have some healthy, convenient meals ready to go.

TIP #1 – Prep the night before
Prepping is so essential for a relaxed morning routine that I just don’t know why everyone isn’t doing it.  I suggest you prep in these three key areas; food, clothes and day.

Food prep will help keep you on track and you’ll already know what you are going to have for breakfast and possibly lunch, which will allow you to move through your morning routine that much faster.

How many times have you gone to your closet and spent time looking for something to wear and then get frustrated because what you wanted to wear is either dirty, at the cleaners or is missing a button?  Were you planning on wearing a sleeveless dress only to see that it was going to rain and you need different attire?  Deciding what you are going to wear the night before will help you have everything ready to go in the morning.  Check your calendar and the weather to help you plan.

What time is that meeting?  If you check your calendar the night before you’ll know what meetings and appointments are coming up and be able to plan for those.  Are you planning on going to the gym after work?  Knowing what’s on your agenda will help you know if you need to pack a change of clothes for that.  Do you have gas in your car?  Do you have an umbrella if it calls for rain?  Prepping will help avoid that last minute rush and help you have a more relaxed morning.

My Bullet Journal Setup for 2018

I’m new to bullet journaling but I’ve watched so many videos, double tapped on so many IG pics and read so many blogs that I feel like I’m practically an expert.  All of that was super inspiring and yet my bullet journal is actually going to be so simple that’s it’s more of a nod to the original idea of bullet journaling than all the cool stuff you see on social media today.

My plan, for at least the beginning of 2018, is to use my bullet journal as more of a social media planning tool and a space to plan videos that I want to film, content ideas for my Instagram and ideas for this blog.

I love looking at all the mood mandalas, habit trackers, weekly layouts and all sorts of doodles but I know that with those bullet journal pages aren’t really going to be realistic for me to implement into my journal.  I really just want to focus on my social media content planning and if I can toss in some cute stuff as I go along then that’s just a bonus.  I will have some pages that include some those things but it won’t be the primary focus of my journal.

If you’d like to try your hand at bullet journaling then you are going to need just a few supplies.

— A good and sturdy journal, preferably one with thicker pages if you are going to doodle.  I am using the Leuchtturm1917 Softcover Medium Dotted Notebook in Anthracite.  I’ve seen others use the Scribbles That Matter (STM) journals as well as the Moleskin Notebook.  I think it’s more important to start journaling instead of worrying about the perfect one.

— Pen(s) and pencil.  I am using the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner .3mm pens and they are working fine.  I know a lot of folks use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens but I tested them in my journal and I noticed a lot of “ghosting” (ink showing through to the other side) and I had already decided I wasn’t going to do much lettering so I just stuck with the Staedtler.  Lots of folks also use pencils to kind of sketch out their designs to see how it will look first.  I’d suggest doing that too unless you like living life on the edge because, well, ink is permanent…haha!

fullsizeoutput_8512

— Rulers and stencils.  If you don’t trust yourself to freehand a straight line then a ruler will come in handy.  I have both a large and small one and I find that the smaller one is better to handle.  You can get them anywhere but mine is just an inexpensive one from Michael’s that is stainless steel and cork on the back.

A great timesaver when creating layouts is to utilize stencils.  I purchased a small stencil from Recollections at Michael’s and found them in the planner area.  They also had some over by the art brushes area such as one with larger circles and squares.  I don’t know if I’ll use them as I’ve decided to keep mine pretty simple but they weren’t that expensive.

If you would like to see how I set up my journal then click on this link:

I also highly encourage you to check out the Bullet Journal website and watch the intro video to get you started on the right foot: Bullet journal intro video 

fqSbmVnuQfWYHFzgC4h0Kg

I’d like to leave y’all with some final tips.  BEFORE you buy anything I highly suggest you do some research, buy a little at a time and use a coupon when you can.  Both Hobby Lobby and Michael’s have a 40% off regular priced merchandise coupon on their app.  Yes, you will have to make a couple of trips and make several purchases but the Tombow Advanced Lettering Kit I purchased is regularly $27 before a coupon so it just makes sense.

Happy journaling y’all and if you are into bullet journaling leave a comment below with a link to your site so I can check it out!

Glo Skin Beauty cleanser and lipstick

IMG_8809

I love coming home 🏡 to find happy ☺️mail 📬 has arrived from @influenster and @gloskinbeauty. My complimentary products included the Phyto-Active Cream Cleanser and Lipstick 💄 in the shade Pillow Talk.

I’ve tried 🙋🏻 the cleanser for a couple of days now and it leaves my oily skin feeling refreshed, balanced and hydrated without feeling tight after rinsing. The cleansing cream converts to a rich, buildable lather and gently exfoliates with papaya enzymes. I really love how soft my skin feels after using it.

I’ve been looking for the perfect 👌🏼nude pink shade of lipstick 💄 and Pillow Talk is it! It’s a creamy, long wear formula that doesn’t feel heavy on the lips and wears well all day. One of my favorite things though is the tube itself. It is magnetic so you don’t have to worry about the lid falling off.

Another wonderful thing about Glo Skin Beauty is they provide the full spectrum of skincare and makeup **AND** they are talc free, paraben free and cruelty free! 🐰
