Girls Night In

75946902-19B4-4FB1-9822-0D7D6135897D

Hey Loves! F & J here!

It can be quite hard to find time in our busy lives to take care of ourselves and just relax, so the other day when we stopped by Ulta Beauty to pick up a few things and we decided we would have a girls night in to just relax and pamper ourselves a little bit. We decided to try something different than we usually do and picked up H2O+ Beauty probiotic bubbling mask and TonyMoly magic foot peeling shoes. The mask felt nice on and it was a rather funny feeling with all the bubbling. It is not the bubbling mask that went viral but we did get some laughs looking at ourselves and each other. We definitely recommend you give it a try! The foot peeling shoes were super easy to use and made our feet softer. Be warned that it takes 4-6 days before the peeling STARTS. The peeling process hasn’t finished for us but we are looking forward to it being done so our whole feet will be super soft and completely refreshed.

We definitely forget to take more time for ourselves when we need it and having this night in was a relaxing and easy way for us to give ourselves a little self love. We recommend carving out time in your schedule and allowing yourselves some self love too! We will definitely be trying to do this more often.

What’s your favorite way to spend a night in? We’d love to hear what you do and give it a try ourselves!

Love,

F & J

Our Favorite Mascara

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We know how hard it is to find a product that you love. There are always so many options out there and you want to test them all to find the best, but thats a lot of work. Especially with makeup, there are literally countless products out there. We get it, so we did the hard work for you! We tested countless mascaras, from drugstore to high end brands, and we rallied up all of our favorites and rated them by category! We can say we actually use these brands and we love them, and continue to buy them. We hope you get some knowledge out of this list because we wish we had it before going on our quest to find the best.

Best Volume- Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced $23 – This mascara has always been amazing at giving our lashes full coverage and makes them seem really thick and full. If you like to surround your lashes with dark and full lashes, this is your winner!

Best Lengthening- Roller Lash Curling and Lifting Mascara by Benefit  $24 – If your goal with your eye lashes is to have them long in length you will love the Roller Lash. The main thing we notice when we use this mascara is that it makes our lashes look long without the clumping you can get from other mascaras.

Best Drug Store- Lash Sensational Mascara by Maybelline $9 – If you are on a budget and you don’t want your lashes to have to sacrifice, we highly suggest this mascara! Its always one we come back to and the one we use on the daily! It lengthens while offering volume, and is great at not clumping which we hate!

Overall Favorite- They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara by Benefit $24- This mascara has to be our favorite hands down! Almost every time we use it we get compliments! This product gives our lashes length as well as volume, and the application is very smooth and not clumpy at all. The results last all day too! If you feel like you splurging and can’t decide which mascara, we highly suggest this one! You won’t be disappointed.

Do you have a favorite mascara that we should try? Leave a comment below and we would love to test it out! Now go flaunt those beautiful lashes.

Love,

F & J

FabFitFun Unboxing – Spring 2018

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We cannot stop raving how absolutely exciting it is to receive a FabFitFun box in the mail! It is always like Christmas Day every season opening the gorgeous box. This is the third box we have received and we don’t have a single complaint about the products that come in it. The spring box is filled with gorgeous colors that  make us excited to say goodbye to this never ending winter season.

The thing that we are the most excited about is the gorgeous Rachel Pally Clutch. It can be used for travel essentials or a clutch to compliment a perfect spring outfit. The adorable and dainty ‘love’ bracelet is also something that we can’t wait to pair with our outfits.

We love that the box is filled with items for self love and care. The massage roller is something we can’t wait to use after a super charged workout. And even though we have never thought we needed an eye mask now that we have an adorable one we can’t wait to use it while soaking up a lip mask and a lit yummy ‘Super Boom’ candle to help set the Spring Vibe.

The beauty products of the box never disappoint as well. The gorgeous lip palette is also filled with so many beautiful colors that can match any spring mood you have. There is also a skin perfecting lotion that we can’t wait to use on our face.  And nail ridge filler which is supposed to help gel damaged nails, which is perfect for us (guilty)!

If you haven’t joined FabFitFun yourself, you can snag a subscription by clicking here, and trust us you won’t regret it.

Happy Spring!

FabFitFun Unboxing – Winter 2017

Hey Loves! F & J here!

 

We cant help but obsess about our subscription to FabFitFun. The products they stuff the boxes with are so useful, adorable, and insanely high quality. It really is like opening a present for yourself. The best part is they are all full size products, so anything you don’t love, you can always regift.

We are really excited that this box has everything you could want for a winter day.

A nice pair of super soft aloe infused fuzzy socks and a cute poncho will definitely help fight the cold. And we are so in love with the hand cream, the smell is nice and subtle, and its super hydrating as well. Plus there is also an awesome exfoliant that will help combat dry winter skin.

We are suckers for cute coffee mugs and we must say that we will definitely be adding this guy to our collection of mugs (you can never have too many!).

There is also a beautiful eyeshadow palette, with gorgeous shades of brown and gold, that we can’t wait to use, after using the hydrating eye masks of course.

And to top it all off a gorgeous layered rose gold necklace, which will pair perfectly with a little black dress.

We think this box really hit the mark, and if you are jealous you can get one for yourself by clicking here! We really think you should, you deserve to give yourself a present too!

Love,

F & J

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.

Love,

F & J

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
