It's been 2 years!!!

Wow, just wow!  What can I say other than "do you miss me?"  The past two years have been filled with growth in all areas for me.  In that process this beauty blog took a backseat but was always something that I wanted to get back to.  I'm at the point where I think I can recommit to this and dedicate myself to giving quality content on a consistent basis.  At some point I do plan to switch up the name and also have a domain so it can be official.  But for right now we'll ease back into this relationship the best way I know how.

I hope someone is reading this and is actually looking forward to my return lol

In the meantime just hang tight because 2017 is going to be LIT over here!

I'm still on Instagram at JOTHISORTHAT, follow me there fam!

NYX Honey Dew Me Up Review--Serum for Angel Skin


I hope you all are well!  Today I have a review of a product that I have been loving for the past four months.  It's a face serum called Honey Dew Me Up from NYX cosmetics that is used to aid in providing moisture and elasticity in the skin, the cool thing about this particular serum is that there are actual gold flakes in the product...I'M NOT JOKING!  When I read the description online I was definitely skeptical but once I had the jar in my hand I knew that this product would be gold...literally.  

Clearly, I have been using this product daily as it has done wonders for my skin in keeping it radiant and moisturized.  I use it in the morning under my moisturizer and on occasion I'll use it at night.  The product is a gel like consistency and you barely feel the golden flakes that are inside.  It is a mixture of honey, gold, and collagen, all three which are beneficial in promoting healthy and radiant looking skin.  There is a scent but it is not overbearing, it reminds me of fresh roses, a scent that doesn't linger.

The top is attached to the applicator of the product which is a spatula, not my favorite type of applicator as this can be prone to product going everywhere if you're messy or apply your skincare in front of a fan.  It's not a deal breaker for me but I would much rather a dropper like the one found in the bareMinerals face serum.  This product is reasonable in price as well at $17 found at Ulta as well as on the NYX website.

You may run into to some trouble as I had in finding this jar of goodness at my local Ulta which resulted in me purchasing online just to save the hassle.  Overall, I think NYX has a home run in this product and I will continue to purchase...until the next great serum comes along.  LOL

Have you tried this product?  What did you think?  Let me know in the comments!

Instagram Lip Color Challenge with The Style and Beauty Doctor #TSABDLips

Hey Everyone!

If you're on Instagram then you already know about some of the month long challenges that go around, some happen to be fun and some happen to die down around mid month.  I still haven't found one that I could commit to everyday but that was until I came across Danielle from The Style and Beauty Doctor's post on her #TSABDLips challenge that I knew I had to participate.  Each day you have to upload a pic of you in a lip color and use the hashtag #TSABDLips.  At the end of the month if you've participated in each day then you have the chance to win a bag full of summer time beauty products.  I have every intention on participating and I thought it would be something fun for us all to do.  I'll be posting my picture later on in the day and I look forward to seeing some of your pictures! 

Here's the link to Danielle's blog post about her #TSABDLips challenge for July.  If you're not on Instagram she also has fun month long challenge for her Facebook family as well!
