It's amazing how little you can actually live with. It's amazing how much more simple things are than what we create them to be. Taking things back to basics seems to settle a lot of problems. A few changes here and there seem to do the trick. I have minimized my wardrobe and gotten rid of so many things through poshmark (great app use my code BUBEK and get a $5 credit) and I have never felt so refreshed. I guess you can say I am a hoarder and I tend to keep every clothing or shoe item I have ever bought or received but not anymore. Some things carry things you don't need in your life anymore. Well, some like this bag just needs a little dye job and I think I can keep. Keep minimizing and keep throwing stuff you don't need. Simplify your life and things will run much more smoothly.

There is this great program called Inflenster. Anyone can sign up for it. It is basically a sight where you get to try out brand new products (for free) and tell the world what you think about them. Usually all the products are great and super easy to use. I would recommend everyone to apply and see if they qualify to receive free goodies! So here are the products I received and what I thought of them!


1. Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation

First of all, they were able to send me the perfect shade. I have no idea how they guessed it so well. I think it just goes to show that the shades are very versatile. I have recently been obsessed with bb foundations and this closely resembles one. I really liked it. Overall it was a good foundation that didn't break me out and stayed on a reasonable amount of time. Would I buy it again? I would. I rarely buy the same foundation more than once.


2. Softlips Cube

Okay so I was really excited about this one! I know. I know. It's a lip balm but I am obsessed with softlips and to receive this new one for free made my life. All I have to say is that i haven't lost it yet and that says a lot. I think the shape has a lot to do with it. And it's not bulky either I can fit it my clutch when I go out at night and it miraculously doesn't leave my clutch bumpy or weird looking. I loved this product. I am buying all the flavors they have.

3. Sinful Colors #NotTextRed

So this nail polish is the perfect red and it campaigns for "No texting and driving." What else do I need to say. Beauty for a cause, what else do you need? That is amazing! I love Sinful Colors nail polishes because they are super affordable, come in a variety of colors and are in almost every drugstore.

4. Pilot Pens

So when I received this I was like what? But I am so glad I gave them a try. This is the perfect pen. I hate pencils. I just never use them and for someone like me who makes a ton of mistakes is a bit silly. THESE PENS ACTUALLY ERASE. I know those other pens say they have an eraser but they don't actually erase. THESE DO. I actually carry the black one with me everywhere!

5. Kiss Lashes

Not to sound conceited but I don't need fake lashes. This is something I would never have considered unless they were dramatic halloween lashes. As you all may know ACL music festival just passed and I gave these lashes a test run. I was going to be out all day in the heat and I knew my usual mascara routine was going to leave me with a clumpy mess by the end of the day. I gave my own lashes a break and glued these on. NO ONE COULD TELL I WAS WEARING FAKE LASHES. Isn't that shocking? They lasted the whole day and looked so beautiful. So for all you skeptical long lashed gals give your real lashes a break once in a while with these!


So there you go! I have found a few favorites that is for sure!

The art of story telling is what I hope to master. Learn to tell good stories, learn to tell captivating stories. Most importantly live a life that inspires your stories. Be passionate and learn how to tell people about it in a way they'll remember. Capture peoples hearts and they will always remember you.
