Planner CaRaZy!!!

Let me start out by saying how head over heels I am about my husband because he lets me shop for myself for Christmas! Another thing I'm head over heels for... Pretty Things! Pretty Graphics! Pretty Planners! Pretty Patterns! Ahhhhhgggg.... I just can't get enough!!! 

So let me rewind a second! Last Christmas I tried my first designer planner. An Erin Condren planner! Love the graphics and the personalization but style wise it just wasn't the right fit for me but definitely check her amazing products!
Fast forward to now....
I have spent many hours searching for what I think is my soul mate planner! 
Fingers crossed and an Etsy order placed, I'm hoping that I'm a step closer to "the one"!
I purchased the follow goodies from a cute lil' Etsy shop called SharBearCrafts

Did I tell you how much I love patterns and metallics! Ooooooh... METALLICS! ;)

And can you say Platinum!!!

And I just can't.... Polka Dots!!! #love

Now for all the little goodies to make it even more fabulous!!! 

Dash Board Inserts

Calendar Stickers

Must Have Stickers

Washi Tape Book

So.... Here I sit already anxiously awaiting for it to come in because let's be honest folks.... The hubs will let me rip open the box and start creating my special little master piece because he loves me even though it's not Christmas yet! Right babe! ;) 
Bring on 2016!!!

Stay tuned for my personal review! 
Blessed always... T

{It's all about that Powder}

Finally... My first beauty post! And the spotlight is on Creek Baby's Arawak Face Powder!

If you don't know me by now I'll fill ya in a lil'! As a Mom of 4 I strive to use natural products as much as possible! I'm not an all out organic natural freak but I think that making daily decisions to put you and your family's health first is something to strive for.

Do I still use products that I love that aren't organic or natural? Absolutely! But I'm constantly looking for the best product that works for me! 

So.... I'm so excited about sharing this particular product for many reasons!

• It's hand-crafted in the Ozarks 
   (My back yard)
• It's all natural organic ingredients 
• It helps smooth out your complexion and helps resolve acne

I'll be honest... I was skeptical when I first tried a sample of it. Being made from arrow root powder, nutmeg, cocoa powder, cinnamon and turmeric, it's not the finest powder. I almost felt like it was grainy on my face until... I figured out 
1. That I wasn't using the right foundation. Post coming soon! 
2. I wasn't applying it right! 

Here's my personal tips on application! 
After applying my full coverage liquid foundation, using a foundation brush I lightly dip it into the container (the wide mouth container is da bomb) gently tap to knock off the access and gently sweep it covering my whole face! 

All though it's comes in 3 different shades, light, medium and dark, it tends to blend very naturally! I'm a total white girl but use the medium shade to give me a lil' color! 

So.... To celebrate my first beauty post I'm hooking you up with a 10% off your first order of Creek Baby! Just select Tina and enter code: TINA10

Hope you enjoy their products as much as I do!
