L'Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Masks

I recently received the L'Oreal Paris Clay Masks in my BzzAgent campaign. I was really looking forward to trying because each colored mask has a different purpose for different areas of skin on your face. It's nice to address specific problems accordingly!

Each mask, when applied to your face, feels like you're using paint. But after just the first few minutes, you feel your skin start to tighten like you're making a clay mold of your pretty face!

The Charcoal mask is used to detox & brighten the skin. That's exactly what it did and then some. I've never been able to use a face mask and say that after the first use, there were immediate results. I used the charcoal on my chin. I found that it brightened that area and accentuated my lip color. 

The Red Algae mask is used to exfoliate & refine pores. I have HUGE pores on my cheeks and around my nose, so those are the areas I focused on using this mask. Again, just after 10 minutes, I saw immediate results. My skin was softer and healthier looking. My face felt like it could breathe. So refreshing! 

The Eucalyptus mask is used to purify & mattify. This mask reduces the excess oil that keeps your skin looking too shiny. I used this mask on my forehead. 10 minutes later, guess what? My skin looked so clear and my complexion was beautiful. 

It's really awesome that each mask has different ingredients used to target problematic areas of the skin that YOU want to address. For best results, you should apply 3 times a week. This was only my first use, but I will be updating throughout the next few weeks, as I'm sure my skin will be flawless. I'm very satisfied. Shoutout to BzzAgent again! #GotItFree 

If I could change anything, it would be that the jars aren't labeled with their purposes. So once you throw away the boxes, make sure you remember which mask is for what. I wrote their effects on the top of each jar with a sharpie so I wouldn't forget :) 

I HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone hunting for that perfect skin mask.

Happy beauty & happy Sunday!

And None For Gretchen Weiners, Bye!

If you have also procrastinated on your Halloween attire, now is the time to panic.

But not really.

After the weekend is over, it's time to bust out the candy and go have some fun. I haven't gotten the chance to go out and buy, or even take the time to plan out a good, OG costume. Now.. My next idea is brilliant, and you can do it too.

Have you ever seen Mean Girls? You really should have, if not, do so right now. One of my favorite movies of all time. So much sass and really relatable for anyone that made it through the hardships of high school and the many cliques it had to offer. 

My favorite character, and my Halloween costume for this year is Damien. With his snarky attitude, fabulous style, and witty comments, I absolutely couldn't go wrong with portraying him.

And it's super easy! All you need is a hoodie, big pair of shade, and a sign that uses one of many famous quotes from the movie: She doesn't even go here.

How simple is that? I have quite the attitude all on my own, so this should be a pretty fun costume for me. Mean girls, unite! 

Have a safe and happy Halloween, and never forget when you're giving out candy:


Linking up on this awesome Friday, come join in!

Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party

If you don't know, now ya know. 

Snoop Dogg & Martha Stewart have been close friends for a very long time, & now they have their own cooking show together. As hilarious as it sounds, it is. 

Cooking up a storm, the dynamic duo will have a variety of celebrity guests each of them invites to be featured on the show. The guest lists is pretty impressive, and includes: Wiz Khalifa, DJ Khaled, Kathy Griffin, Seth Rogan, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, Robin Thicke, Fat Joe & Remy Ma, and Bella Thorne. This is just the first season, guys.

Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party will bring an awesome new twist to cooking shows today. So if you want to learn a new recipe, and get a good laugh, I recommend tuning in. I will be :)

Martha Stewart, 75, looks absolutely fabulous and is clearly a joy to be around. A businesswoman, writer, and TV personality, I just adore her. 

Snoop Dogg, 45, also looks great. Former rapper & actor, his sense of humor will be something great to bring to the table. Airing on VH1 on November 7th @ 10 PM. ET. 

You can find Martha feeding morsels of food to Rick Ross, getting a little too turnt, saying "fo shizzle", and asking, "Who's gonna be more fried by the end of this show?"

When asked about the show, Snoop had this to say..
"My homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back. We're gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can't wait for you to see how we roll together!"

Watch the hilarious trailer for the show here. (US Magazine)

Enjoy & happy Monday!
