My Favorite Things

We all have them...things we love...or things we can't live without...perhaps we've just found them or they've been part of our daily routines for years. I have a few things I am loving right now and a few things that I can't live without. I went around my house and grabbed a few things to talk about! You should try them...maybe you'll love them too!

First up, is a new find for me. I've only been using it for a little over a month but I wonder how I've existed this long without it. It's a tinted mineral sunscreen for your they call it...age defying fusion. Sounds fancy, right? Tizo is amazing!

I am not a beauty blogger, I am the anti-beauty blogger. I try to keep my make-up as simple and easy as possible. I didn't grow up with YouTube videos and"contouring"...HA! Anyway, Tizo is smooth, like a mousse, it provides full coverage on your face, and leaves a matte finish. It's all I primer, no cc cream, to powder. It's easy and leaves my face looking like I've put a lot of effort into it. And it's SPF 40...with no gross SPF smell. I seriously HATE when a face moisturizer smells like SPF. So this product is a win, win for me.

If you live in the Bakersfield, CA area you can go get it today at Europhoria medical and personal spa. If you don't live here, try Amazon!

Next is something I started using about a year ago. It's e.l.f. mascara. Last year my hubby was unemployed for a bit, so that meant we needed to cut back on our spending. But as a woman there are just some things I need...and mascara is one of them. If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for amazing mascara. I've tried it all, expensive to inexpensive, drug-store to department store, etc. But when I found this, I loved it.

Not only is it super affordable, it really does seem to make my lashes look longer and more visible. And I love the little ball on the end to help separate my lashes and make them POP! Go to your local target and pick some up. If you don't like it, you've only wasted about $4, but I bet you'll like it too!

Let's be real...I don't read. I am not an avid reader, but I will read if it's an international sensation like the Hunger Games or the twilight Series...because I have FOMO (fear of missing out), but I ran across "Anxious for Nothing" by Max Lucado while at Hobby Lobby and I knew I had to buy it. My family and I have been through LOT of changes over the past 2 years and as a result my anxiety has been a little out of control. This book has helped put some things into perspective. I am a religious person, and I know Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, but sometimes it's hard to really comprehend what that means in my life. I read a little bit most nights before bed and I love the perspective it gives me and calms my heart. It's a perfect fit for me b/c I'm religious and anxious. wink, wink!

Last but not least, my Advocare Spark!!! It's a true sister and I call it our medication. You see, I'm a TOTAL night owl...I stay up way too late and I pay the price in the morning. Or I pay the price during that 3:00 lull...we all know that torturous time of day, where we still have 1/2 a day to go, but all we want to do is nap! Well, here's the solution. It an energy drink that has 20 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to help you get going and to focus. Seriously, if you want to nap...don't drink this. It does doing laundry at 6 am kinda wonders! Yes, it has artificial sweeteners and caffeine, but but so does my Diet Coke and my Diet Coke just makes me want to crash. Spark has no "crash", just good ole fashioned energy boost. You mix it with water, so it's like drinking water...right?

Let me know if you want to try it out, I know a few people!
