Summer Picks

I’ll gladly caption this picture! My work teamed up with this local cupcakery called StudeCakers and had them come during a lunchtime to sell their gorgeous creations! Part of the proceeds even went to the AHA – American Heart Association Pittsburgh local chapter!

First row = samoa, maple bacon pancake with YES, that is a mini pipette of syrup and strawberry milkshake with mini straw and malted ball

Second row = cookies ‘n cream with a truffled Oreo ball inside, duplicate of that maple bacon and a chocolate chip cookie dough

For this amazing presentation, these gems were $2 each, which is slightly lower than less fancy cupcakes at local bakeries!

I won another Pinchme beauty giveaway! This collab featured this ultra chic beauty company called Poppy & Pout and includes the following:

-3 full size body scrubs

-3 full size citrusy lip balms

The packaging had no plastic in it so I unfortunately pushed too enthusiastically at my lip balm and now it’s stuck at that height. There’s no way to push it back down so…just gotta use this sucker as is! That Lime Rush flavor is so refreshing and summery! Just wish the smell would linger longer! Feels great and isn’t waxy at all on your lips. I highly recommend you check Poppy & Pout out!

This is the current shower gel I’m using and boy, does bath time feel like a treat! I got this from Memebox last year and am still not over the fact they don’t sell any of their amazing beauty boxes anymore or have a loyalty points system. I was their biggest fan. Anyways, here’s my take on this Happy Bath grapefruit sparkling ale body wash:

Pros:

smells like bubbly wine + real grapefruit! Nothing artificial

packaging is just too cute; like a pint of beer

lathers well

smell actually lingers on you after you dry off!

 

Cons:

hard to use on loofah

too runny and comes out really quickly

half the bottle is just foam and the actual product is very little

expensive!

Uhhhh, this is just the fanciest, tastiest drink I’ve ever had. This bottle is so dangass tiny though. It tastes like a sparkling, slightly tart lemonade with a fragrant rose smell! Packaging, color, taste, just all awesome! It was like $3 at Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop. For special occasions only, lol.

Y’all gotta check out Little Poppy Co. It’s a monthly subscription for bows and headbands and the designs are just too cute! Here is August’s! Can’t wait for my biddyboo to have longer, nicer hair to be able to flaunt some of these!

Today is this little angeldoll’s FIRST birthday! To think, this exact time last year, I was a bulbous mess going into the OR for my spinal block…oh glob, I’m so glad that’s over because LOOK WHAT I MADE! She is my joy!

High Tea & Mani

WordPress mobile version is giving me lots of hangups. I can’t upload more than 3 pics without it bricking on me. And the order I upload them apparently doesn’t matter ‘cuz WordPress app will do what it wants like a honey badger.   I guess I’ll start with this out of order picture! It’s my amazing high tea platter that I served this past Saturday for a good work friend. Complete menu details below! I got to use my fine china and the new serving patter my aunt gave me for Christmas. Domesticity score! Everything was finished at a record speed so I’m pretty sure it tasted good as well.
  I am so excited about my Monday mani. I used the nail wraps from my Target Beauty Box and they are out of this world gorgeous. They are a blue and green floral pattern on a pearl background with a metallic sheen. It is real nail polish with a top coat so you had to seal it in a airtight baggie if you can’t finish all 10 strips. The sizing is still not perfect since my nails and fingers apparently aren’t standard size/shape like everything else about my body :(. I joke with my bestie about moving to the land of the pygmies because I’m too small for this world…

Anyways…I had to trim and file the excess away but I think they mostly work pretty well. One strip covers 2 of my fingers! I also like that the floral pattern varies throughout each strip. The rest of my nails are done up with 3 coats of Essie’s To Buy or Not to Buy. Obviously, I bought it, lol. I find that Essie’s pastel colors need 3 coats in order to achieve the same opacity level as Orly’s or OPI’s one coat. I wish the price would reflect that too but alas. The packaging says these wraps will last for 14 days. I’m skeptical so we’ll see!   My new favorite teapot. And yes, I have multiple teapots in various sizes and density. This one pours the best and serves the most number of people at once. Don’t laugh at my awesome memo pad. It says: Shoe love is True love. Yes indeed. I just need to find the perfect pair of heels that fit me! I’m convinced that I’m the modern day Cinderella and I’m still waiting for some dude to bring me a pair of size 3.5 glass slippers.

Prices were AMAZING; nothing like Pittsburgh’s overpriced and substandard Moio’s :(. This one was mocha creme. Light, creamy, subtle and good in ma mouth.
