Dot & Dot Packing Cube – Medium


Don’t you hate lugging around heavy luggage for a weekend trip or an overnight stay? I recently learned about these awesome packing cubes made by dot&dot.

I was surprised when this arrived to see how compact it was. So I opened it up and started packing things inside. I was amazed at just how much you can fit into such a compact bag. This is perfect for travel and easy to store.

Dot & Dot makes several sizes of these travel bags to fit your needs. It also comes in many colors to suit your personality! Like pink  and purple:) But this one is in red, which is also a great color.

These bags are lightweight and have  a mesh front so you can see through your bag, which is very convenient so you can find exactly what you are looking for.

Paula Dorf’s Aztec City Palette & Teal Mascara – I’m in love :)

Eyeshadow palettes make my heart go pitter patter.  Paula Dorf’s Aztec palette did not disappoint.  This set comes with 5  colors to create a perfect look.  2 beautiful neutral mattes, a lilac shimmer, a light blue shimmer with gold undertones and a creamy white shimmer perfect for highlighting.

pd1 pd2

I collect palettes and in comparison to most of the high end palettes I own this has much better quality of eyeshadows.

These are some of the softest most buttery feeling shadows I have experienced.  This is definitely a high end palette and worth every penny.

This palette comes in a sleek black mirrored case and also includes a nice double ended brush.  I don’t usually end up using the brushes in my palettes but this one is highly functional with great quality.

This palette breaks out of the strictly neutral palette fad to create a possibility of many looks with only five shades.

I created a beautiful look with this and with my primer the shades lasted all day.  The darker shades are highly pigmented and the lighter shades are buildable.  As I said before the shades are so soft and buttery and they blend like a dream.

I also love the Paula Dorf mascara in teal.  I put this on the end of my lashes for a subtle pop of color.

I high reccomend this palette! And you know how I feel about makeup.  These eyeshadows make me swoon!

Check out the palette HERE.  If you decide to purchase this use the promo code TEAL at checkout for a free teal mascara

Olive Oil Dispenser Bottle


I have replaced cooking with butter and vegetable oils with olive oil over the past few years because it is so much better for you. They lower the calories and fat of what you are cooking and it also has therapeutic benefits such a reducing your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. Not only should you cook with it, but swallowing a couple teaspoons a day is very good for your health.

I always have a bottle around and am delighted to have an olive oil dispenser! This durable glass bottle has a sleek classy look that stores your olive oil.  It comes with a dispenser to easily pour your olive oil into your pan, or spoon depending on how you prefer it.

olive oil

The dispenser also has a rubber top to close the bottle to prevent any dust getting into your precious evoo!

I buy those large bottles from Costco, not exactly easy to pour when cooking, so being able to store it in this pretty glass bottle makes my life easier. I love the pour spout the most, it allows you to pour without over doing it to ensure the right amount of oil each time.

I love products with a lifetime guarantee! This provides you with one so if my bottle is defective or breaks they will replace it for me.

Eco Jarz + Giveaway


I’ve always had a thing for drinking out of canning jars. My grandma canned food every year, and when they weren’t in use they would use them for drinking glasses.

Drinking ice tea out of a mason jar brings back childhood memories.  I can picture my papa placing his sun tea out in the yard and waiting all day for it to brew, then pouring that tea over ice in a mason jar and sitting out on the porch on warm California evenings and sipping on my sun tea.

I was excited to find a product that fits over your mason jars and converts them into drinking glasses!

ecojarz

They are called EcoJarz! These lids turn any type of jar into a glass. This means less garbage, less damage to the environment and more money in your pocket.

ecojardsAside from canning jars you can use them with empty tomato sauce, salsa or mayo jars.

I love this product so much, not only because I can reuse what I would normally throw away, but also because of my love for mason jars and the memories it brings back to me.
