Lasting Lip Color with LipSense

I was introduced to LipSense through Instagram where I instantly fell in love with so many of the colors. In case you didn’t know what LipSense is, it’s a long-lasting, liquid lip color that dries on your lips and is waterproof. You can find loads of LipSense distributor pages on Instagram that are full of color swatches of their lip colors. While browsing Instagram, I found the sweetest distributor by the name of Kayla. She sent me a collection that included a LipSense color, Glossy gloss, and Ooops! Remover.

Hazelnut LipsenseKayla helped me choose a color I loved and even though she didn’t have it in stock at the moment, she found it quickly for me through a friend who also sells LipSense. My lip kit was shipped quickly and she also provided a tracking number for me so I could see where it was.  Kayla also allowed me to join her Facebook group which contained tons of videos and information on how to apply LipSense which was very helpful.
LipSense Glossy Gloss

Applying LipSense is a little confusing at first, but it gets much easier the more you apply it. You actually apply it by layers. Here’s a video to explain some tips and tricks and also how to apply it:

Here are my thoughts since trying LipSense:

Pros 

  • I like that the color lasts longer than your typical lipstick. Instead of constantly re-applying, you basically apply once and you’re set all day.
  • The Glossy gloss is soooo smooth. I usually have pretty dry lips and I love wearing glosses because they are so moisturizing. The Glossy gloss does not disappoint.
  • There are loads of gorgeous colors to choose from that compliment all complexions.

Ooops! Remover

Cons

  • I don’t like the taste or smell of LipSense at first. It does dry, but before it dries, it tastes and smells like chemicals.
  • Ooops! Remover can take a little bit of time to work so if you’re looking to take LipSense off quickly, you’re going to need some patience.
  • The application can take a few minutes to do which is not as easy as applying a regular lipstick.

Hazelnut LipSense

Overall, I like LipSense. The fact that you are able to apply it in the morning and it can last most of the day is cool. I like that you are also able to apply several colors in layers to create a different color. Like I said, the process for applying LipSense is not very hard but it does take patience and time.

Jane.com – Your One-Stop Online Daily Deals Boutique

*Disclaimer: I received a form of compensation and/or free product from Jane.com. All opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Flamingo Pillow Cases on Couch

If you’ve not been to Jane.com, you should check it out ASAP. They are an online boutique that features different shop’s sales. You can get up to 80% off each product! The catch is that the sales they feature only last for 72 hours so if you see something you like, you need to jump on it.

Flamingo Pillow Case

What I love about Jane.com is that they honestly have a little bit of everything. They have clothing, accessories, gadgets, home decor, baby items, as well as shoes and more. Whenever I go to the site, I find myself scrolling through all the deals so I don’t miss a thing.

Flamingo Pillow Case

I think they have a great selection of products to choose from. I like that they have newer and trendy items and that you also don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for them. Getting nice things for less money just makes shopping so much better. 🙂 Not to mention, they ship it to your house. I am a huge fan of online shopping.

Pink Ballet Flats

If you don’t have access to a computer, no need to fear! Jane.com has a mobile app that makes it way simple to look through their boutique, place your items in your cart, and check out.

Pink Ballet Flats

From my latest purchase at Jane.com, I got the perfect southern girl’s mug that features the phrase “Bless your heart”. “Bless your heart” can be said to be sincerely heartfelt, or it can be said after you’ve said something not so kind about someone to nullify what you’ve just said. 😀 I find myself saying this more than I’d like to admit. Haha. I thought it was pretty cute.

Bless Your Heart Mug

Another thing I got was two bright and fun Flamingo pillow covers. I had a set of pillow cases from Ikea, but I figured since my couches are brown, I needed just a bit more color for the summer time. It’s amazing how much little touches add so much more depth to spaces.

Lastly, I got the cutest pink ballet flats. There were several colors to choose from, but I figured I have so many black, gray, or brown shoes, it’s time to change it up a bit. Plus, these are perfect for spring, summer, or even winter to dress up an outfit. They’re way comfy too.

Jane.com really is such an incredible daily deal site. You’re sure to find something you love.

Creating the Perfect Outdoor Space with Wayfair

It’s finally Spring! The weather is getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and being outdoors is basically a requirement. I love getting outdoors when it’s warmer and soaking up the sun’s rays but currently, I have no furniture outside. Since I have no patio furniture I thought I’d throw together a wish-list of some great pieces I think would throw the space together. Wayfair has so many great and affordable products for the outdoors. They have products for home decor and pets too which makes decorating any space a breeze.

Here are some products I’d love to have on my patio:

Porto 4 Piece Lounge Seating Group with Cushion in color “Spruce Blue” (<-Link Here)

Lounge seating is perfect for spending time with friends outdoors. It’s basically like bringing your living room outside. 🙂 I love the Coastal look of these.

Beechwood Indoor/Outdoor Throw Pillow in color “Light Gray” (<-Link Here)

Pillows add an accent or a pop of color to furniture. I love pillows with patterns, especially.

Tub 3 Piece Metal Pot Planter Set (<-Link Here)

Pot planters are great because you can place them wherever you’d like and put so many things in them. You can put flowers, succulents, or even fresh herbs in them! They add life to your space.

Metal Lantern (<-Link Here)

Lanterns make your patio space cozy during the night. You can place them on your table, on the ground or even hang them in nearby trees.

Tailgater 20 Wood Fired Grill (<-Link Here)

My husband and I love to do cook outs, so cooking steaks, burgers, hot dogs, and kabobs are definitely on the menu. There’s something so delicious about the wood-smoked flavor these grills have.

Classic 5 Piece Dining Set (<-Link Here)

 

If you’re going to have a grill, you may as well have an eating area, right? I love tables you can put an umbrella on to keep the hot sun off yourself while it’s scorching outside, or you can have the umbrella off when you’re soaking up rays.

If you’d like to create your own perfect patio space, check out this Patio Furniture Makeover Starter Kit on Wayfair’s website. There are endless possibilities for colors, materials, style and functionality. They truly have it all!

Spark Imagination with KidloLand + Giveaway

 

KidloLand App

A month or so back, I was asked by the people at KidloLand if my daughter and I would like to review their educational, interactive app for ages 0-5. I had never heard of KidloLand, but after watching a video on their website about it, I was very interested in trying it out.

If your children are anything like my nieces, nephews or daughter, then they love music and games. When I visit my niece, one of the first things she does is asks for my phone so that she can play games on it. Luckily, I have the KidloLand app on my phone which has made music more interactive and games more educational so I don’t have to feel bad handing my phone over to her. 😀

KidloLand

KidloLand is such an impressive app! They have phonics, learning games, letter tracing, nursery rhymes, stories, and they even teach about colors, shapes, flowers, numbers, and more! There are over 1,000 activities, songs, rhymes and games and there are NO advertisements!! This app has everything your child needs to both be entertained for HOURS (if you wanted :D) and also to learn. I absolutely love it and so does my daughter.

My daughter is only 4 months old, but she loves when I sing to her. She tends to sing with me, which is the cutest thing. When I play nursery rhymes for her on KidloLand, her face lights up and she has the biggest smiles. All of the nursery rhymes on the app have interactive cartoons where you can press on different characters and they do fun things like change colors, spin, dig, fly, or make noises.

KidloLand is such an amazing app, not only for children, but for parents too. There are so many songs and versions of songs as well as cute games that you’ll find yourself giggling along with your child as you explore the app. I would highly recommend this app to parents and aunts/uncles/grandparents of littles.

There are 3 options for purchasing the KidloLand app – $4.99 per month, $24.99 for 6 months or the best value: $39.99 for an entire year. It’s much cheaper than sites like ABC Mouse and there is still tons to do on it!

You can download the KidloLand app for iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id533412119?pt=275891&ct=prettyloved

Download from the Google Play store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.internetdesignzone.nurseryrhymes&hl=en

GIVEAWAY time!! The wonderful folks at KidloLand were kind enough to let me give away a 3 months subscription FREE to THREE of my followers (SO THREE WINNERS!). All you have to do is comment on this post or go to my Instagram, follow me and KidloLand and tag a friend; more tags = more entries. Giveaway ends March 31st.  https://www.instagram.com/prettylovedblog/

Lorena Canals Rugs

Some of the top celebrities, bloggers, and magazines LOVE Lorena Canals’ rugs. It’s no surprise because their handmade rugs are not only gorgeous and functional but they’re also made with non-toxic dyes and are machine washable. Which, lets face it, is a need.. especially when you have children and pets!

Lorena Canals has so many designs and shapes for their rugs. Whether you are sophisticated, or fun-spirited, there honestly is a rug for everyone’s taste. I have one of their white, spotted rugs with scalloped edges called “Little Biscuit White” and I absolutely love it for my daughter’s room. The design is so versatile and cute. 🙂

So, as mentioned above, one of my favorite things about these rugs is that they’re machine washable! One thing you’ll find as a mother is that you need products that provide functionality. Even the cleanest, neatest children can ruin the nicest things so it’s nice to have a rug you can actually wash.

Along with being machine-washable, Lorena Canals’ rugs are sooo soft! I lay my daughter down on hers for playing and tummy time and I find myself wanting to join her and run my hands all over it. 😀 Wherever her rug is, my dog is also wanting to lay on it. I’ve found him in her room several times sleeping on it. It’s the sweetest thing. But, again, I love that I’m able to wash it after he has laid on it.

There are so many gorgeous designs and patterns for all. I would definitely recommend these rugs to anyone I talk to. The only down to these rugs is that the price point is a little bit pricey. But honestly, for a rug that is handmade, will last forever, and can’t really be ruined from normal use, I think it’s an incredible value.

If you’re interested in checking out Lorena Canals’ rugs, you can find their site –> HERE and their INSTAGRAM –> HERE. They have more than just rugs, you can also find baskets, pillows, and blankets too — all, which are machine washable as well. You’re sure to find something you love!
