Thursday Reviews: Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy late Thursday! Man things have been a little crazy this week but things are going well. I haven't done a post in this series in such a long time. I have so many samples waiting to be reviewed. So let's get right into the reviews!!

Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 19.99
Review: I really enjoyed using this eye cream. The under eye area stayed moisturized and felt smooth. I loved the consistency of this, it wasn't too thick and blended in very well. Mostly likely, I would repurchase this.

Dove Pure Dry Oil

Box It Came From: Ipsy and Walmart
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 9.00
Review: Funny thing is that I received two samples of this products in different boxes. I really love the scent of this oil! It has a rich, thick texture but it not too heavy. It doesn't feel greasy at all and works so well with my hair. I would most definitely repurchase this hair oil.

Marc Anthony Oil Of Morocco  Argan Oil Hair Spray

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 8.99
Review:  I normally don't use hair spray when but decided to give this a try when I straightened my hair. It does smell like the typical hair spray but doesn't stay around long. My hair didn't feel sticky or hard at all and my curls stayed all day. I was really impressed with this hair spray. I think I would purchase the full size.

Pacifica Duo #2 Shadows and Ethereal Shadow

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: Unsure
Reviews: I really love the colors of the shadows. They are great neutral colors for everyday. The colors were not what I expected when I used them. They are a little sheer but you can build up the color. I would  most likely purchase other products from this brand. Here are swatches of each shadow.

Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagent Mascara

Box It Came From: Sephora
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 24.00
Review: I got this mascara with racking up 100 points at Sephora. I have only tried foundation from Makeup Forever so I excited to try another product. I really love this mascara! It really enhanced my natural lashes and made them look so long and full. The wand is so interesting to me, here is a picture of it. I would repurchase the full size!!

City Colors Creamy  Lip Stain in Flirtini

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 5.00
Review: I was excited to receive this lip stain. I haven't had a lot of luck with many lip stains and hoped this would be good. I really love the color of this lip stain and it is very pigmented. It didn't feel drying at and had a pretty good wear time. I would repurchase these. Here is a swatch.

Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadow in Harlequin

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.95
Review: I really love this pigment. The color is so gorgeous and it is so pigmented. There is very little fall out when applying this. I love the packaging and the top so you don't spill anything. Here is a picture of the inside packaging and a swatch. I would purchase more mineral eyeshadows. 

So that is it for Shopping My Beauty Samples. I have a lot more samples to review so be on the look out for more post in this series. Have you tried anything else products If you have, what were your thoughts? Comment below and let me know! See you for Fashion Sundays!!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…
