So I meant to have this up by Monday but I had really bad food poisoning on sunday and only managed to post this video up without a blog post. Any who… I will have two posts up today because I am uploading another fun video later today…
So today I’m talking about Dollar Tree Hits & Misses. I love seeing what kind of beauty products they have at the Dollar Tree because sometimes they really do have some great stuff. So today I’m going to tell you what I think is worth spending your dollar bill on!
So I products I am talking about are actually currently in your dollar tree so if your interested check out your local dollar tree. ( I am not sponsored I just love the Dollar Tree!)
LA Colors Lipstick & Lip gloss Duo : Pleasure – I Love this seriously I love all the shades so pigmented , last a long time & so creamy I did a whole review and swatch post so check it out!
ELF Shimmering Facial Whip: Lilac Pedal- I Love these I have all of them , you can add them to your foundation for a glowy finish or use them as blush or highlight and they are gorgeous! I use my elf small stipple brush with it and it works great! Or your fingers will work great too!
Sally Hansen Nail polish: These are the same great formula you find at the drugstore so I love these , they are a great buy.
LA Color Craze Nail polish: This is another great nail polish brand that is at the Dollar Tree I am definitely going to try more because I loved the formula and longevity!
E.L.F. Eyelash curler! This is the best eyelash curler in the drugstore seriously and the fact that you can find it at the dollar tree is awesome!
Maybelline Face & Body Highlighters: These are a hit! I am doing a review soon on these there are four shades and they are great to try! The Pink Glow is one of my favorites to use for a blush! Its a blush and highlighter in one!
Hand Creams: I found these by the register and they are great for on the go hand cream, they feel soft and very nice! Plus they smell so great!
LA Colors All n One Jumbo pencil: Its just to lilac and icy to work on my skin but it would be a nice highlight for fair skin.
LA Colors Eyeliner & Eyeshadow pencil: I love the brown even though it can crease on you so for this reason it is a miss , but the color is beautiful!
Physicians formula blush: It just looks like a white powder, it is really soft but I don’t what a white looking blush on my cheeks 😀
Maybelline color show textured nailpolish vintage leather: It was terrible! It dried chalky on my nail, it scraped right off after it dried and it was nothing close to the color in the jar. It also looked very chunky , didn’t like it at all!
I am going to start doing a look of the day if I do not do a tutorial so you can know what products I used for my look! Today I will have two because I am posting two different blog posts! Lucky you!:D
My Look of the Day:
LA Colors Liquid Eyeliner
LA Colors Lipgloss & Lipstick Duo: Pleasure
Hard Candy Natural Eyes Palette (Eyes , keeping it simple)
Hello My Bondbeautys,
So today im doing a what I Ate Wednesday. I like doing these health related posts every once in a while so I hope you enjoy!
So I woke up this morning and decided that I want to try to keep a record of what I eat , in hopes of eating healthier. So A good idea is a food journal that way you can be accounatable for everything you eat.
So I woke up this morning a little later than usual and hurried to get a video filmed & the kids ready for the day.
We finally got around to eating breakfast at 8:30 A.m.
We ate some good ol Chex Cereal and I did sneak in there some sugar to sweeten my morning up just a little. I just shared with Hyrum and watched our morning kid movie (Ice Age).
We usually do a snack but this time we didnt. So at 11 A.M we finally had some yummy lunch. I decided to do Grill Cheese Sandwiches! I make the best!
So untill our house is done being renovated we are bunking at my parents house. So my beautiful momma made some delicious food for dinner. My Mom made some picadillo de res en caldo. So basically a soup made of ground beef and some yummy squash! It was so delicious then we had fruit for dessert.
So thats basically what we ate yesterday! We did sneak in there a creamsicle because it is delicious!
Till Next Time
Remember beauty comes from within, so let yours shine!
Happy Wednesday , you know what that means time for another blog post!
So bare with me , it is not a makeup tutorial because I am still not in my house! So every is still packed away. So a couple weekends ago I went camping with the family. It was so fun but for some reason every time we go camping my husbands family loves to take pictures and post them on facebook. I dont know about you but when I camp I either look like
A. a man
B. A puff ball
So this time I decided to come up with some hairstyles that will keep my hair out of my face, that will be stay all day, and that I dont need a mirror to do! So here are the three no mirror hairstyles I came up with I hope you enjoy them!
So I know that when you go camping your not suppose to care how you look. But if you can look cute while doing something fun why not?! Specially when everyone wants to document every second of their lives with pictures!( like I do!)
I have some tips to help make your hair ready for a no mirror hairstyle.
#1. make sure there is some sort of texture or curl to your hair from before. I love doing these hairstyles on 2 day old curled hair! This way no matter which crazy way your hair decides to go it looks like its meant to do that!
#2. Use dry shampoo on your roots. This will soak up any access oil & stiffen your hair so it doesnt move much from how it originally looks which is awesome to keep it in place looking cute.
So all you need for these hairstyles is a hair band or elastic..
If you have layers braid the right side of the hair that has the layers.
Sweep your hair all to the opposite side
Incorprate the braid you made on your right side into two strands for your fish tail braid. ( I use a fish tail braid because it is sturdier than a regular braid)
Braid your hair
use a clear elastic or hair band
Use the Braid you already have , or make a side braid
Twist the hair , making a bun.
tuck the ends in
secure it with a hair band
pull out any bangs or any hair you would like to have out.
Take out any bangs or hair you would like to leave out.
pull your hair back into a high ponytail.
make a hole above the hair band and twist your hair backwards into the hole.
take out most of the hair forming a bun.
I hope these were easy to follow .. Check the video to see these all done!
Thank you guys so much for your support!
Remember Beauty comes from within so let yours shine!
Im going to make a big effort to post videos & blogs on here more often. Quick house update: The house still has no flooring no paint job but the wall paper is finally all down! I am so happy about the wall paper being down it was so time consuming!
So today I decided to tell you guys about beauty products that I tend to use behind the blog or video scene. Things that I think are must have, holy grails or favorites. You can call it whatever you want , basically these prep my look and so on.
You guys know I love to incorporate a video with each blog so here it is make sure to take a look to see all the products up close & personal!
So In this video I pretty much talk about skin, makeup, nails & hair! I talk about my favorite products that I really use from day to day, week to week, month to month & year to year. Sometimes I don’t mention these products because I do not like to repeat the same products all the time for you guys. All of these except for three are drugstore products , you guys know I love my Drugstore!
Do you have a must have holy grail product that you always use?

Today is the perfect day to do a meet my baby blog post. It has been now 3 months and Durham has grown so big!
Durham was born on January 6 2015 He weight 8 lbs 14 ounces! Yes he was a really big baby, he was actually born on my due date which is pretty cool. His big brother Hyrum was born two weeks early so you can imagine my surprise that I made it full term.
So Durham is three months old now & am so glad that Hyrum is doing so good with him. Hyrum surprised me by absolutely adoring Durham since the very beginning ! I thought for sure he would get jealous but no he loves him to death.
Let me tell you I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect baby! Durham is so quiet and just chill. He will just sit there and look around and watch , no fuss! He also now could be wide awake but when it hits 8 o clock I lay him in his crib and he falls right to sleep all on his own! It is absolutely amazing how wonderful he is. I can see the difference in personality between Hyrum & Durham, Hyrum is so silly and Durham is so layed back.
Im so excited for all of our future adventures with these two boys!
Dont forget beauty comes from within so let yours shine!

Dont forget beauty comes from within so let yours shine!
Today I have some exciting news! We bought a home! We are so excited about it , but the only thing is we need décor for it! So I decided to do a Home Décor haul for you guys to show you what I recently bought for my home. I will be doing several of these in the near future so keep a look out for these! When my house is finally all decorated then I will do a home tour as well! So theres lots to look forward to so make sure you stay updated.
So the style I am going for is Shabby Chic , I found that the most affordable way to go with this is checking yard sales & thrift stores. Why? because antique stuff is found there all the time for really inexpensive prices! For everything I bought it cost me only $30.00, its incredible! I am so excited to have the chance to redo my whole home in the style I like!
I will also be doing DIY as well because I need to refurbish some furniture & what not!
What is your home style? What is your favorite paint colors to have in your home?
I am going to start painting and redoing the flooring in my home starting in April so give me some advice!
Till Next Time,
Remember, Beauty Comes from within So let yours shine!
So today im showing you my empties. What does that mean? These are products I have completely used up and are basically going in the trash. So why am I showing you my trash? Well now that I have completely used them up I have pretty much made up my mind on whether I would buy them again or whether they are just terrible products! So Im going to give you my OPINION of them..
So its been a crazy week but I wanted to put up a post for you beautyful ladys & Gents. I have been moving all week long ! We are getting a house! I am so excited about it so excited that I already filmed a home decor haul video and I’ll have it up pretty soon (as well as a blog post). If you want to see how I did my makeup today check it out..
Enjoy your Spring break!
Dont forget, beauty comes from within , so let yours shine!
Its early , I’m up and the kids are cozy in their beds still. Perfect time to share this makeup look with you beauties. I was recently looking through my makeup and realized that their is a lot of IPSY products that I have not tried yet! What!! I know pretty crazy, so I took everything out that I have not tried yet & made this beautiful makeup look with it. I also did a easy video tutorial to go along with this post for all you visual learners!
So the star of the show today is the Olive Green pigment , it is gorgeous! As soon as I saw it I new I had to make a look around this color! You don’t usually see wearable olive green eye makeup, but I think that this look turned out pretty darn wearable!
They Key to making a intense eye look wearable is making your face makeup & Lips look as natural as possible. So here are the products I used & the steps to create this look. Again If you are more visual then check the tutorial!
Step #1 : Prep
It is so important to prep your skin for makeup! Taking care of your skin is so important because it keeps your skin look smooth & less aged. Nobody wants to look 40 at 25!
1. Moisturizer first
2. Face Primer second
3. Exfoliate those beautiful lips too!
Step #2 : Makeup
Its time to apply some makeup & create a beautiful unique olive eye look. (which makes all eye colors look gorgeous especially brown or honey eyes!)
1. Apply a warm brown eyeshadow pencil to the lid & crease, then use your finger to blend it out. (this will be your base.. Do the eyes first so if you have any fall out it won’t mess up your face makeup.)
2. Then use a Midtone Cool brown (Blue heart) to apply into the crease & blend it out real well. (this is going to act as our transition color which will help blend the olive out better)
*the key in this eye look is blending really well so take your time doing this with a fluffy CLEAN blending brush!
3. Apply the olive green with a eyeshadow brush onto the out half of the lid & toward the crease. I used this pigment dry so instead of swiping with the brush just pat the color onto the lid; slowly building up the color.( don’t worry about fall out thats why we didn’t do our face makeup first!) Then blend the green and the crease color together using a Clean blending brush.
4. Apply the light pink in the duo underneath the brow to highlight & in the inner most corner of the eye.
5. Apply the Gold in the duo in the inner half of the lid and with the eyeshadow brush you are using carefully blend the olive green and gold together to make a smooth transition.
Face: (im skipping to the face next but I will be back to finish the eyes later!)
1. Apply your concealer & foundation
2. apply a brightenng concealer in an inverted triangle shape under the eyes to brighten , then powder your face
3. apply a bronzer to the hallows of your cheeks for a subtle contour
4. use a light natural pink blush
5. highlight your cheek bones for a beautiful glow
6. apply a lip stain to your lips (this is what gives your look such a natural effect the stain looks natural!) also apply the stain to the apples of your cheeks to add a naturally flushed appearance.
Eyes: (go back to the eyes to finish )
1. apply the eyeshadow pencil to lower lash line & blend with finger.
2. apply the mid toned brown to the lower lid & add the gold shadow to the inner ⅓ of lower lid
3. apply a black eyeliner to the tight line & a green eyeliner to the waterline
4. apply a liquid liner to the upper lashes making a cat eye winged liner.
5. apply mascara & false lashes if needed!
Thats it , I know it seems like a lot of steps because I really broke everything down so that I could be more detailed. This really is a fast look to accomplish and anyone can do this look! I hope you will try it out & use the hashtag #bondbeautyfullooks so that I can see too!
I hope you guys like seeing video tutorials & step by step instructions, if you do I will definitely do more!
