I’ve been needing TLC, so final Sunday, I took a Mom’s Day self-care journey to Ulta.
My brows and lashes have been driving me loopy, so I made a decision to restock some old skool favorites within the hopes they’d assist.
For my brows, I grabbed the OG of forehead fillers, Anastasia Forehead Wiz (my shade is Medium Brown) and Clear Forehead Gel.
As for mascara, I turned to an previous pal, MAC Prolonged Play Gigablack, which I’ve been sporting on and off since 2013 (!). If you need curl maintain, size and separation, this mascara is nice.
I’m making an attempt to get again into the behavior of portray my nails! Proper now I’m utilizing the three-step OPI Infinite Shine system, which mixes lacquer and gel know-how. I have already got a few colours and the highest coat, so throughout this journey I purchased the bottom coat and a nude pale pink, Bubble Bathtub.
Oh, and since Connor was with me, I let her pick a polish. She shut Flip It Up by Orly, a glittery magnificence!
My hair… I can’t even. It desperately wants some TLC! I’m scheduled for a reduce subsequent Tuesday, thank goodness. I simply gotta make it to subsequent week with out chopping all of it off in the course of the evening.
To tide me over till then, I believed it could be good to attempt some new issues: a claw clip by Kitsch (I’ve liked every part I’ve tried from them thus far), a minty scalp conditioner by Not Your Mom’s Naturals (I’m hoping it’ll make a very good co-wash) and a leave-in by Verb (ended up returning it as a result of the scent was too robust).
You already know what? I’ve determined to totally embrace the truth that I’m a woman who loves fancy physique lotion. With that in thoughts, I purchased this attractive, heavy glass jar of Physique Cream by KEYS Soulcare, which is the skincare line by Alicia Keys (yup, the singer).
It’s a shea and cocoa butter physique cream, so it’s wealthy and thick, and it’s scented with a beautiful heat, natural combine that smells like sandalwood and sage to my nostril. The scent is current sufficient to note, however it doesn’t overwhelm my senses. I actually like it.
Oh, and random, whereas I used to be studying the copy on the field, I observed that e.l.f. is talked about because the distributer. Neat!
Final however not least, I purchased some cotton pads and a nail polish remover. All in all, a really satisfying self-care journey.

For the subsequent fourteen days, I’m noting a pair issues that I’m grateful for. For those who care to hitch me, please share within the feedback.
Anywho, immediately it’s sliced fruit in my water (strawberries are particularly yummy) and mechanical pencils. Each are easy pleasures which make my life so a lot better.
