FabFitFun Unboxing – Fall 2017

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We finally decided to give into the craze and get a subscription to FabFitFun! Every season you get a box filled with tons of fun and useful goodies to try out while paying a fraction of the retail value! After considering to join for far too long, F decided that she couldn’t hold out any longer and lets just say she was not disappointed one bit.

As you can see in the pictures above there are a ton of full sized products that range from beauty to general life style products. F was most excited to try out the carbon tooth powder which is supposed to help whiten teeth. She also loved the mud mask! It was super easy to use and left her skin feeling smooth! But I by far F’s favorite product was the cozy wrap which she uses as blanket! It is so soft and warm, and such a pretty color!

F can’t wait to use all her new items, and definitely can’t wait to receive her next box. J is pretty sure she will be hopping on the subscription train too!

Current Obsessions

Hey Loves! F & J here!

 

We felt like it has been too long since we put together a list of our favorites, so finally we made one for you guys!  We feel like even though these are current obsessions they are also our fall faves.

Dermalogica Superfoliant Daily – We are so in love with how smooth our skin feels after using this exfoliator. It is so gentle that is is almost hard to believe it works so well. It helps keep our skin smooth while the seasons change.

Pixi by Petra Hydrating Milky Mist –  It’s super easy and convenient to use. It’s very moisturizing which is perfect for the dry fall days. It’s light and not over moisturizing so it won’t leave you feeling oily.

Butter London Nail Lacquer– We love the brand Butter London and we love how quick drying their nail lacquer is. This color screams fall but in a more unique hue.

James Bay Pandora Radio Station – This Pandora station has been on all the time for both of us. All the songs give off a nice cozy vibe, and are perfect for a fall day.

Cozy Socks – Our toes are the first thing to get cold with the days getting colder. So in order to be completely cozy we grab a pair of comfy socks. They definitely are must and adorable too.

Vooray Duffle Bag – Whether we want a cute duffel to bring to the gym with us, or a cute weekend getaway bag we are crushing on Vooray’s collection of printed and plain bags! They are amazing quality, reasonable priced, and so aesthetically pleasing.

If you have any favorite you’ve been loving please don’t hesitate to share them! We are always searching for new things to love.

Beach Bag Essentials

  • Hey Loves! F & J here!Our Hawaii trip is arriving much quicker than we anticipated. Time is flying! We are super excited and we can’t wait to share our trip with you! We wanted to share some of the prep we are doing to make our trip much more enjoyable! We wrote up  a list of some of our favorite suncare essentials, which you can check out here! We decided it might be helpful to you guys to put together a list of what we are planning to put in our beach bags so we can have a stress free day at the beach, while having our basics covered.

    Mini Hair Brush-We love to use Wet brushes because they can tame even the wildest beach hair with minimal pain! We all know the ocean salt mixed with the breeze can leave a wild mane to tame!!

    Face and Body Sun Screen- It is important to keep our skin protected from the harsh rays of the sun and it is important to have extra in your bag so you can reapply!

    Water Proof Mascara-We strive to go as natural as we can when on a beach vacay but sometimes a girl needs some mascara! Which is why we opt for a water proof one!

    Makeup Wipes- Sometimes even water proof mascara can’t stand up to the waves of the ocean! Make sure to have some wipes handy to clean up any makeup smudges! F knows from personal experiences black eyes from make up are hard to get off with just water alone!

    Moisturizer- After being in the sun for so long it is important to moisturizer our skin! The sun takes a lot from our skin and we need to make sure we keep it hydrated.

    Tanning Lotions-Might as well take advantage of soaking up the rays while at the beach!

    Aloe- Healthy for your skin, but this stuff feels amazing to put on your skin if you suffer a burn. *Tip: Put in the fridge before you go for a cooling effect.

    Sun Glasses-We like to bring a cheap pair to the beach so we don’t have to worry if we lose them, or they break.

    Water Bottle- It’s important to stay hydrated from the inside so you can have tons of energy!

    Small Snack- We like bringing a lean protein like turkey jerky to keep us energized.

    Chapstick with an SPF- Can’t forgot to protect your kisser!

    Let us know if there is something we should add to our list so we don’t forget anything! Have fun at the beach!

    Love,

    F & J

Sun Care Faves

Hey Loves! F & J here!

If you have read our previous posts you might know that we are going to Hawaii! We are super thrilled to have such an amazing opportunity. We have so much to plan for but most importantly we have been thinking about how we need to keep our skin protected from the sun! Being from Seattle our skin does not get exposed as much, so it can be a bit more sensitive to constant sunshine. A lesson that J had to learn the hard way in Florida. Even though F usually tans thanks to her olive complexion she still knows how important it is to keep our skin protected.

We have done a lot of research and tested out a lot of products and decided to round up our favorite brands and products that make sun protection something  we want to do, while smelling amazing.

Face:

Bali Body BB cream with SPF 15– This tinted BB cream offers all natural coverage and sun protection. It’s a win win!

Super Goop Defense Refresh Setting Spray with SPF 50– This product has a much stronger SPF which is nice to help protect our faces-one of the most easily burned places on our body! Its nice that you can apply it after your make up, and offers a matte finish.

Body:

Australian Gold Botanical with SPF 30– A natural Sunscreen that is good for your skin! We call that a win!

Lip:

Sun Bum Lip Balm with SPF 30– Sometimes we forget to protect our lips but with this product you won’t forget, it smells so good you could eat it!

After Sun Care:

Beach Bum Cool Down Hydration After Sun Lotion– It is super important to hydrate your skin after sun exposure, this product does the job and leaves you smelling like summer! Tip: Put this product in the fridge before you head out, so by the time you are ready to moisturize it is sure to cool you down.

Most importantly keep yourself hydrated inside your body too and drink lots of water!

If you have any favorite sun protection products let us know we are always on the lookout for more.

Love,

F & J

Zoella Beauty

Zoella BeautyZoella Beauty 2Zoella Beauty 3Hey Loves! F & J here!

Recently we have found a couple of Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella) beauty products at Target. They have a few products in store and some more online. But when we took our day trip to Vancouver BC. we found a section at London Drugs and we purchased quite a few things!

We are in love with the smell! It is such a simple and light scent but we can’t get enough of it! J has been using the Soak Opera daily  and F is constantly using the perfume and has gotten lots of complements.

The whole brand is adorable, Congrats Zoella!, and we are very impressed by the quality her products have. If you haven’t tried any of them you should head over to target.com and get yourself some and let us know what you think!

Love,

How To Keep Healthy Hair This Winter

Hey Loves! F & J here!

Winter is one of the most beautiful seasons, especially in here in Seattle. But there is no doubt that it is COLD. This year the season seems to be bringing us especially cold weather. It is important to make changes to your beauty routine to make sure that you are protecting yourself from the cold weather. The cold weather can be harsh to our skin and hair and the last thing we want to do is cause damage that would take a whole season to repair. So we put together some tips and products we use to keep our hair shiny and healthy throughout the winter season, that can be carried on throughout the rest of the year of course.

Since the cold dries our hair out we always use It’s A 10 Miracle Leave in Product. It leaves our hair frizz free and even better tangle free. It also protects and heals damaged hair. Its a bit of a splurge but the bottle lasts a while and it’s totally worth it!

Of course wet hair and cold weather is not a good mix so for the next few months the hair drier becomes one of our good friends. But the heat can be damaging so we use Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer. This product is an absolute favorite! It not only protects the hair but it cuts hair drying time significantly. Who doesn’t love hitting that snooze button one more time?!

The coldness definitely dries the scalp out and sometime can leave us with dandruff and who wants that? One product that has actually worked for us was dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. The smell is quite strong but not unbearable, but if you can get over that it removes dandruff as well as leaves your hair super shiny and smooth.To avoid a smelly head we suggest using it before shampooing and conditioning like normal.

If you feel like you just need a complete hair renewal our favorite go to is coconut oil. We usually just put it all over our hair and scalp and let it soak for at least and hour. It is a bit of pain to get it washed fully out of your hair but it is so worth it. (We suggest a clear paraben free shampoo… it helps).Your hair will be so soft and so renewed! We can guarantee that you will love it!

… and of course hydrating yourself with water is a great way to keep moisture through out your body!

Stay Warm,

Love,

F & J
