weekly roundup

Welcome back to my weekly roundup series. It’s been a while but I have some fun things to share with you guys. First off let’s talk about how we just skipped fall here in Boston and jumped right into winter. I will not be shocked if I wake up to snow on the ground soon. I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas I love the holidays! The decor and all of the food, I can’t wait to have a full belly and to be surrounded by family.

1. Beauty updates

-I received some packages from Patchology and a brand called L’Bri. I love skincare so I was so excited to open all of this. Patchology sent over a new sleep mask moisturizer to put on after you get out of the shower. I woke up and my skin was soft and smooth! L’bri reached out to me to send over some products for me to try. Of course, I was open to trying new products and discovering new brands. As soon as I got the package I used the face and body scrub along with the body wash. First impressions were amazing. The face scrub smelled a little off but it made my face and body feel really soft. The body wash smells like cucumber and it was my favorite along with the cucumber body butter. I used it with a loofa they put inside the package so it was a great shower. I haven’t tried the face products yet but I’ll make sure to put it in a review soon.

Pinterest is my favorite place for DIY food recipes! I found this Twix Cookie recipe and I have to make them because I LOVE TWIX! It’s my favorite candy bar ever.
