Shopping My Beauty Samples

Happy Thursday. I hope you guys have been enjoying the week so far. Today I'm bringing you another post in my Shopping My Beauty Samples series. Let's get into the reviews!

Kate Spade Walk on Air Perfume

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 25.00-95.00
Review: I have quite a few perfume samples and I really like trying different scents. I had no idea that Kate Spade had perfumes at all, I just know of their purses. I really loved this perfume. It was such a fresh scent, perfect for everyday. This has notes of Lily of the Valley and Magnolia. The floral scent wasn't that strong but it was just enough. I would pick up the roller ball in this fragrance, it is perfect for spring.

Hey Honey Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 32.00
Review: I have a few products from this line and this is one of the first ones I've tried. I haven't tried a peel off mask in a while. This one was pretty easy to remove and left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. I think I would purchase this one.

Christine Brinkley Complete Clarity Daily Facial Exfoliating Polish

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Sample Size
Price Point: 34.95
Review: It seems like a lot of former super models are branching into the beauty industry. I was really interested in this daily exfoliating polish. I normally exfoliate my face at night 1-2 times a week. This polish was really gentle and not abrasive at all. It left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. I may purchase this in the near future.

Mica Beauty Cosmetics Cream Eye Shadow in Bronze

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 14.95
Review: I have previously tried another eye shadow by this company and loved it. I thought this was dried out when I opened it but it was not. I love how creamy and smooth this shadow it. It glides on the lids so smooth and is very pigmented. I am really getting into using cream eye shadows and I would pick up another one by this company. Here is a look I created using this shadow.

Cover Girl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast Mascara

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 10.00
Review: This mascara was in one of those limited edition boxes. I really like the mascaras that I have tried by Cover Girl. This one is a two step mascara for those bombshell lashes. You would use the base coat first and then the volumizing top coat. I thought this mascara was pretty good. It did make my lashes look longer than give them volume. I may repurchase this, I'm on the fence about it. Here are some pictures of both sides of the mascara.

Peony Cosmetics Shadow Trio Eye Shadow Palette

Box It Came From: Ipsy
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 17.95
Review: I thought this was a cute little palette. It would be perfect for traveling or keeping in you makeup bag. I love how the three shadows complement each other and can create a nice day or night look. They are pretty pigmented and easy to blend out. Here are pictures of the shadows, swatches and a look I created. I'm not sure I would pay this much for this palette but if the company sold these individually, I would purchase them.

LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick in Wildest Dreams

Box It Came From: Birchbox
Full Size or Sample Size: Full Size
Price Point: 8.00
Review: This is the cosmetic line launched by Birchbox and I was excited to try something out. This is such a pretty color and so pigmented. This was not drying at all and had a pretty good wear time. I really like this and would probably purchase and other products from this line. Here is a swatch.

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!

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…
