November Kindergarten Crate

I’ve recently gotten into subscription boxes (I know I’m a little late) and the first one I ordered was Kindergarten Crate! This subscription box is $40 a month and automatically renews. If you order for multiple months, then the price per month decreases.

I got my box at the end of October and it was themed for November and Thanksgiving. Included in this month’s box was:

  • Wooden Story Blocks
  • Ticonderoga Golf Pencils
  • Word Strips
  • Fuzzy Socks
  • “The Thankful Book” and lesson to go along

If you want to get the box for next month, you can find that here.

I made a video that goes into detail about this month’s box. Make sure to check it out and let me know if this is something you would like to see again!

Meet Mila | Puppy Update

IMG_2610IMG_2574IMG_2599IMG_2606IMG_2672

Guess what? We got a puppy! Her name is Mila and she is around 6 months old. She is a mix between a black lab and a chow, although we mostly see the black lab in her.

We got her 7 weeks ago from a woman on Facebook who was giving her away. Actually, we got her on the first day of school, so that was very stressful for me – new kindergarteners and a new puppy all on the same day!

We started working on training her right away, since she was so young. her previous owners must have worked a little bit with her because she was house-trained fairly easily. She has also mastered sit and shake and goes right in her crate when it’s mealtime.

Speaking of mealtime she eats a cup of food twice a day (with lots of treats in between). We have been giving her the “I and love and you” dog food which you can find here. We like switching up the flavors when we buy a new bag, but she seems to love it all.

Thankfully, Mila has always slept through the night while she’s been with us. She enjoys sleeping at the end of the bed and occasionally she will be a little cuddly.

I also filmed a video for my YouTube channel so make sure you check that out! It includes a little more information on her including a vet update. I hope to be doing more updates on her as she grows!

Get to Know Me

I am constantly trying to grow my YouTube channel as well as my blog. As I result, I am trying to help my current subscribers and potential subscribers get to know me better. This was a fun tag that I found on a blog called rootreport. You can find it here! Some of the questions were different from typical questions I’ve seen in other tags, and it was fun to film! Enjoy learning a bit more about me!

After you check out my video, make sure to go to the original blog where I found this to find the questions!

Doing My Sister’s Makeup

Today’s post is a super fun one, because I get to do my sister’s makeup on camera! She loves makeup (although probably not as much as I do) and was excited to have her makeup done with some of the products that I have and she doesn’t. Enjoy this fun video, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and let me know any other fun tags!

BareMinerals BarePRO Liquid Foundation Review and Demo

BareMinerals is known for their powder mineral makeup. I’m not really into powder foundation, so I have never tried their foundation. When I saw that BareMinerals made a liquid foundation, I was interested and bought it right away!

I bought mine on Ulta‘s website, but it is also available on Sephora. It retails for $34 for 1 fluid ounce. Each retailer sells 30 different shades. This is the largest foundation that I currently own!

This foundation is supposed to be a lightweight, full coverage foundation with a matte finish. I’ve been trying this product out for a few days and I am ready to give my review!

I bought mine in the shade Aspen 04. Honestly, this color is too light for me right now, but I am very tan from vacation. I make it work with a little bit of bronzer. The bottle is heavy and luxurious feeling and the best part is that it has a pump! Yay!

I usually use two pumps on the back of my hand, and that is enough for my entire face. In my YouTube video (linked at the bottom) I tried applying it on half of my face with a brush and half of my face with a beauty sponge. I liked using the beauty sponge so much better than the brush!

When it pumps out, it is a very liquid consistency. You can see it starting to drip on the back of my hand. However, I think that makes it easier to blend on the face.

I really love this foundation so far! The only downside is that it is definitely not full coverage like it says it is. I could have layered more on, but I’ve been loving the more-sheer look for the summer. It is a matte finish like it says.This bottle will also last you FOREVER – it is so big and you don’t need a lot of product. I am excited to see if this improves the quality of my skin over time, as bareMinerals products claim to do that.

Overall, I suggest checking this out! I’ve been loving it and I think you will too!

Guess who’s back? Meee! I’m so happy to be back filming and blogging, and I’m really hoping to be able to put up lots of content this summer.
