Burt's Bees Lip Crayons- Hawaiian Smolder + Niagara Overlook



Burt's Bees is synonymous with holy grail lip balm for me. I've also tried their tinted lip balms and shimmer lip balms and loved them all! They released lip crayons about 2 years ago but this is the first time I'm trying them. The first thing I noticed is that it's 100% natural which is such an amazing feat.

New Drugstore Mascaras 2016 (Annabelle, Essence, Rimmel)

There are some makeup products that are worth splurging on. But for me, mascara is not one of those. I've had really good luck with drugstore mascaras and often like the results just as good if not better than high end mascaras! 

Luckily, there are always so many new mascara launches in the drugstore to keep my interest high. I'll be sharing with you some of the newest releases from Annabelle, Essence and Rimmel. 


Annabelle recently put out the Lash Launcher Mascaras which are all themed around "mascaras that takes your lashes into the stratosphere".

Try Barre Classes for FREE at The Bar Method 15th Anniversary Celebration!

There's been a lot of dance infused workout methods in the last couple of years and barre is the newest trend! Barre combines ballet movements with pilates and yoga for an all over toning workout.

I hate working out in a gym and I usually stay fit by playing sports. I used to do figure skating and ballet was part of my off-ice training so I was very intrigued to give barre workouts a try! I actually first heard about barre from my mom who raves about them and also recently from some of my corworkers who go to barre class several times a week.

Essence Nail Polish Collection + Nail of the Day Roundups

I've mentioned essence in a few posts before and this super affordable brand has quite the impressive line up of nail polishes available! In this post, I'm going to go through their collection and share some shades that I've been testing out.

Gel Nail Polish
turn the lights on, play with my mint, don't be shy

This is their classic collection which features mostly colors in a cream finish but there are also some with glitter and frost. It's called the gel nail polish but it's not actually gel.

I love the smaller bottles (8mL) as I never finish nail polish anyways and this takes up less room. The brushes are wide and flat which allows me to cover my nails easily. Most of the formulas are quite creamy and smooth. I found turn the lights on which is the soft metal finish a bit streaky but the other shades self-leveled well. The colors are pretty true to what's in the bottle so I won't bother describing them!
