Looking Back: February

Hi!

February is coming to an end already. I really can’t believe it. I’m still catching up from Christmas!!

Well, excitedly, February has been my best blogging month so far, which is really fun. I’ve really enjoyed blogging and hope to keep it up for a while! Thanks much for stopping by, y’all!

The first post I made this month was, hehe, “Looking Back: January” 😄 (check that out  here) I like to do a overview of the past month and all that it had in it.

The next one was a quick little Valentine’s card tutorial I did. I really liked making that post. (Come see that HERE)

I had been stashing yup a few sunset/rise pictures and I put them all in one post. (Here)

I was excited to share my February Bullet Journal setup with you all. (right here)

Megan over @abarefootgal recently re-designed my blog here (of which I’m extremely grateful!) which I love so much. (over here)

I had a few photos to share and I announced my new Young Living essential oils page. (You can see that here)

I have tried a few of Savvy Minerals blushes of late and I did a full-on review on them. (HERE)

I have been making quite a lot of ATC’s lately and made a quick post about them. (See here)

And then I did a Savvy Minerals lipstick review. I had a fun time taking pictures for this’n! (HERE)

I reviewed a bit of art I’ve done lately. (right HERE)

I was recently nominated for the Awesome Blogger Award, (thanks again, Lydia!!) and I posted about it. (here)

I stashed up some more recent photos and I have joined POTP by Meg’s Life. (see that right here)

The other day I was playing around with all of my different watercolor formats and posted about that. (See that here)

I have had fun this month blogging and hope to keep it up for March! Thank you all so, so much for reading! Have a wonderful last day of February, 2019!

Do you have anything fun coming up in March? Dogs or Cats? Do you like to swim?

Savvy Minerals by Young Living Lipstick Review

8th April 2020 Our House 123 Anywhere St., Any City-3

Hello, Friends!

Happy Valentine’s day! How was yours?

I have another Savvy Minerals review today! (And I know I used that picture on the last review, but it’s the same thing, so I’m using it again!😁)

My Mom and I have accumulated a few lipsticks and glosses from Savvy Minerals since we found out about them, and I have heard mixed reviews, so I shall now throw my input into the ring!

IMG_9631.JPG

Savvy Minerals has many colors and different kinds of lipsticks (tangerine infused and cinnamon infused velvets). They have all colors for all types of skin tones and shades, and they also have glittery and matte (and in between!).

IMG_9635.JPG

They last a long time on your lips, and they do taste good. (Have you ever gotten one and it just taste horrid?😫) I especially love the tangerine infused ones! (Shown)

IMG_9632.JPG

They have a viewing section in the middle, where some lipsticks don’t, which is nice. I like to be able to see what color I’m getting!

IMG_9656.JPG

The lipsticks themselves are a little dry, but they go on pretty smoothly, so it’s alright, but sometimes I have to put chapstick or lipgloss on top, or first, do make it not feel as dry.

My Mom likes darker, orange/maroonish colors, and I like pinks and soft peachy colors, (but not too pink) and Savvy Minerals offers a couple in those ranges.

IMG_9669.JPG

They’re pretty natural, which is good. They have natural ingredients like Citrus oils, Beeswax, and Sunflower oil, others have Shea butter, Cinnamon bark, and Coconut oil. (But you don’t taste anything but the citrus/cinnamon oils, and they’re not very strong, which is good.)

IMG_9649.JPG

The lip gloss is some of our favorite. It’s tingly, because the main oil in these are peppermint. They make your lips super soft, and I love it.

They are quite pricey, but for natural products, they’re decent.

The Tangerine infused lipsticks

The shades on skin are the same in the bottle, not darker or lighter, so you do get what you get.

The peppermint lipgloss

The lipgloss has a long bottle with a wand, and it lasts a long time.

The Cinnamon infused velvet lipstick

Savvy Minerals also has another kind of lipstick I haven’t tried yet. Maybe I will soon!

                                        PROS

+Lots of colors

+Different kinds for different preferences

+Good tastes

+Goes on smoothly

+Last a long time throughout the day

+Layers well with lipgloss and chapstick

+Can be enhanced by lipgloss

+They hydrate your lips, not dehydrate.

+Chemical free. I feel like they nourish my lips, and not deplete them.

                                     CONS

–More expensive than drugstore makeup

–Can feel dry without chapstick or lipgloss

 

I don’t really have another, so that’s it! They’re really good. Overall I give them a ♦♦♦♦½ rating. (Hehe, I know those aren’t stars, but my emojis weren’t working:) )

I really like their lipsticks so far, and I hope to try more Savvy Minerals products soon. Did you enjoy this review? Thanks much for reading! I hope you’re having a great Valentine’s day(:

Hi! *waves*

Today I have some pictures, (again😄) to show all of you! I have taken a lot the last few days, and they don’t go in any certain category. So here we are! I also have something to tell you at the end(:

To start out, we went to this farm near our house. They have this HUGE dog there that protects their goats from coyotes and bears. He’s about 6′ 5″ on his hind legs. My brother there is on his tip-toes.

I caught Maisy red-handed digging in the mud😖 (It’s pretty funny, though😂)

And that, my friends, is the end. Now, for the “news,” so called, I have a new page I thought I should tell y’all about! It is a page about Young Living™ Essential oils! I’m pretty excited about this one. It was fun to write! Click here to see it(:

I hope you all have an awesome weekend!
