DIY Valentines Goodie Bag for Kids | Budget Friendly

A lot of people really liked the DIY on Christmas goodie bags that I decided to make them for Valentines Day! This is actually one of the ideas I came up with on how to put together one goodie bag, but I have two more ideas that I am working on at the moment. So please stay tuned or subscribe to my email list!

Also, if you’re more visual, (like me, lol) click on the link below “youtube tutorial” on how to put these goodie bags together!

Youtube tutorial

Above are the materials used in making the goodie bag that is shown below all of this text.
*It is optional to add the shredded paper, and the handmade with love stamp.*
 
Products: 
-Brown mini paper bags
-Mini one hole puncher
-Set of paddle boards (Dollar Tree), Mini boxes of stickers (99 cents store), & pencils (Target $1.00 section)
-Pink faux string (Daiso)
-Ruler
-Scissors
You can purchase the items for inside the goodie bags at 99 cents store, Dollar, Tree, or Target (dollar section). These stores always have items whenever a holiday is coming up! I actually purchased the brown mini bags, one hole puncher, & the paper shreds from this store called Daiso. It’s a Japanese store with products that are $1.50 and below. Unbelievable! They always have such cute items. The stamp I purchased from Michaels.
Step 1: This is optional, only if you’re using the stamp. You want to stamp first before you add anything in the bag. If you’re not adding any type of stamp or paper shred, then proceed to adding you’re items into the brown paper bag.
Step 2: After adding your items, you want to use your one hold punch a make a two holes about 1 inch apart from each other in the middle of the bag. As shown in the photos.
Step 3: Measure 10 inches of the pink faux string. You want about 10 inches so you can make a bow in front of the bag, if cut less than 10 inches you’ll still be able to tie the bag, but without a bow. Since the pencil is long, I advise that you move the pencil off to the right or left side of the bag, and then add you’re string.
Step 4: REPEAT! Until you’re all finished making the goodie bags for your children’s class room or your friends!
I hope this helps anyone who is looking for a creative way to give back for Valentines Day. I will be posting a youtube video on how to prepare these bags, and also more DIY’s on budget friendly valentines gifts for kids!
Sincerely,
Adrienne

Self-Love

IMG_6283

What is self-love?

I define self-love as taking the time to find time for yourself. It doesn’t mean being on your phone checking social media, or even writing this blog post. Iot’s taking a walk through nature, doing yoga, listening to music, reading a book. There’s a ton of things you can do.

For me, I found that giving yourself time gives you peace within yourself and peace around those who are surrounded by you. It gives us this awakening of fresh air. Letting go of negativity and healing within you.

Here are 10 things you can do, that I’ve done:

1.) Take a walk outside in the morning when the sun is rising up

2.) Read a book

3.) Do yoga, and it doesn’t even have to be at a studio there are so many resources that can teach you how to do the basis of yoga & just turn your Spotify or Apple Music on for the relaxation

4.) Have lunch or dinner by yourself

5.) Be technology free for an hour

6.) Start journaling and write your thoughts or goals

7.) Meditation! (I love this one because it actually works, and clears your mind and gets you geared up for your day)

8.) Eat healthy, drink lots of water (stay away from coffee for a day)

9.) Don’t compare yourself to others, focus on you & your goals

10.) Always, always, be true to your self

I hope you’ll incorporate these tips into your lifestyle! Leave any comments below if you’ve already got a self-love routine going on and share ❤

What happened?

 

 

Hey Everyone!

It’s been a cool minute since I’ve written/posted anything!!!! I’m doing fine, don’t worry =)  I will start posting more frequently. I wanted to give a little life update of what happened, why I stopped, and why I started again…

My last post was talking about how I created a youtube channel, which I did and it’s actually still there all my videos but the last time I posted a video was back in May? or August? I’m not too sure, but its definitely been a few months. Life is hectic I tell you, especially if you work full time and also have a little one as well who needs all the attention, lol. But I have 0 excuses! In August, I was actually let go of my job. But honestly, it was the best thing that’s ever happened because in the last few months of working there I was so miserable, and when you start to question your future and question yourself “wth is going on?” then something is wrong. I feel if the company never let me go, I would’ve never left, so it was a sign for me. I was always so stressed when I would come home and bring home work drama to my significant other and I told myself I can’t do this forever, I loved the job position I was in, but in any work place there’s office politics, but this workplace I was at was very very toxic and a lot will agree with me on that. But short story, I’m happier now than I was before! Although, I am not currently working at the moment, it gave me time to find myself and just pursue what I wanted to do, which was nursing! I actually got accepted into nursing school and I can’t wait to write all about my journey and share it with you all!!! I don’t start until March 2018 which gives me time to prepare myself lol. As for the youtube thing, well I told myself that if I didn’t try doing it, I feel that I’d regret it and so I did try it. But, its not for everyone, so it wasn’t for me. But, it was definitely fun doing it and maybe in the future ill give it another shot, but for now its not really my priority! So yes, thats my little short life update. But I will be posting much more frequently, so hopefully I keep you readers entertained! Anywhoooo.. Christmas is around the corner, is anyone prepared yet?!?!?! I mean I’ve got my decorations up but I still need to go shopping!! haha. BTW, if you’re looking for ornaments or any Christmas decor on the low, dollar tree has it, and even cute little stocking stuffers.

Who loves drugstore makeup?! I do 💁🏻

Today I posted my 2nd video on YouTube! It’s actually a full face with only drugstore products 😊 . The makeup brand was mainly Wet N Wild except two products, which were also drugstore. But wow, I am impressed with wet n wild, the quality of the makeup is good. If you haven’t tried the lipsticks yet, I highly recommend !!! Also, the foundation. The only TWO I don’t recommend are the brow pencils and the eye primer. The eyebrow pencil felt like I was drawing my brows with an eyeliner pencil 😩 I liked the fact it had a spoolie at the end, but then again for the price… BUT, I would not purchase again. The eye primer is a big no no, it felt smooth putting it on, but the application for eyeshadow was not smooth. When I was blending the colors the brush was not smooth.. it was patchy. Also, when the primer was dry my eyelid felt sticky!

But overall, I recommend the rest of the wet n wild products that I applied on my face. ✨

Goodnight,

Mini drugstore haul


WELCOME BACK!

I feel like I haven’t been consistent in posting and I apologize for that. I’ve just been busy with work, caring for my daughter, and now youtube. If your new to my blog, I did start a youtube channel and my first video posted on Thursday, so check it out and subscribe! Also, after being off Instagram for 1 year… I am now back on Instagram and I’ll leave both those links below.

Okay, back to the subject! Last night I went  to Walmart with my cousin since she needed a new chew toy for her new puppy and decided to stroll through the makeup section. I’ve read great reviews on the Wet n wild foundation and luckily they had my color!! It was the last color there and all the other colors were a shade lighter than I am but most of the foundations were almost gone. I also saw the Mega Cushion color corrector they had 4 different types and I got the one for dark circles since I just haven’t been getting the greatest sleep my under eye circles are not looking great at the moment lol.

Wet n wild foundation photo focus: Omg… this foundation is so light weight!!! I can’t believe this foundation was only about $5.00. It has a flat stick applicator which I’m not a huge fan of, but the shade I got was perfect. It is light-medium coverage and full coverage if you add a second layer. I applied one side with a beauty sponge and the other side of my face with a flat top kabuki brush. I recommend applying with a flat brush it gave me more coverage then the beauty sponge.

Wet n wild Mega Cushion color corrector (peach): This cushion has a little padded applicator and the packaging is very cute. You can easily throw this in your bag when your on the go. I did see some difference when I applied this under my foundation, but I need to try it again. When first applied it was very very bright and I used my fingers to blend it out. I’m going to try my sponge and see how it works and do another review on it.

I know you see more products in my picture besides the two I reviewed above, but I just bought these all the other products today. I went to my local CVS and they stocked up on all the new wet n wild products and I went a little crazy.. ahaha! But, for the price I couldn’t resist. I can’t wait to do a review on these products when I try them.

For my next youtube video I’m thinking of doing a full face makeup tutorial on all the wet n wild products mixed with other drugstore brands. So stay tuned ! I will be posting videos once a week on Thursdays. fullsizerender

Lip stain Review! 

I got these for lip stains as a gift from my Auntie, so I’m not sure how much they sell for at Victoria Secrets but lip stains are beautiful ! 

Their glossy at first then turn into matte. I’m not really into the brighter colors I’m such a plain Jane when it comes to lips and I stick to nudes A LOT ! 

Below is a photo of how the lip stains look like 👇🏼 

•I’m not a huge fan on the third lipstick, it’s the color shine lip shine. It is very sticky when it glides onto my lips and I did not favor the color much. 

Other than that the rest of the 3 are really good ! 
 Hope you all liked this short review on these! 

What matte lipsticks do you like? 

Xoxo,

Ayexbee💕

Finally done!

After filming Monday and finally finishing the editing last night! I posted my very first youtube video on my “coral makeup” look!!!

I’m super excited and anxious at the same time, I hope you all come and watch my video and leave any feedback and subscribe to my channel. I can’t wait to share more makeup ideas and just my positive energy with you all.

Xoxo,

Update … 

Hello beautiful people ! 

Thank you to my followers so far, you all are the best 😘

So I wanted to make an update about my YouTube channel and why I’m making one. 

My purpose for making a YouTube channel is to share any of my makeup ideas, review products, and just overall have fun on my channel !!! 

It’s very anxious and exciting at the same time, but it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for the longest but never took up the courage to do so! Just like my blog I started about a month ago. This was something on my ‘bucket list’ for 2017 to achieve and it’s been going so smoothly especially with all the support.

The hardest thing so far is editing my video but I’m making a lot of progress so hopefully by the end of this week my video will be posted. 

If anyone has a goal they want to achieve this year I say do it ! Who cares what other people think about it there will always be someone bashing your dreams, just tell yourself that you are a beautiful person and no one else’s opinions matter except your own !!!

 I hope you all have a wonderful day! 

Xoxo,

Ayexbee💕

 

Laura Geller 👄

It’s review time !

I was never into the whole ‘baking’ trend when it first started but I was always interested in it. Instead of spending so much on the Laura Mercier loose powder everyone has, I was browsing around and because the packaging from Laura Geller is so cute and simple I found the Matte Maker pressed powder. What I do when I use this powder I conceal first then I use my mini blending sponge (it’s really tiny) and I press the powder on my sponge and pat down under my eye area also around my smile lines to set and then I leave the product on and start doing my eye makeup. When finished I take a flat kabuki brush and just wipe off the excess and it gives me a very smooth appearance. I still want to try the translucent loose powder to compare.

Any setting powders you recommend? Comment below 

Next… I really wanted to try the new Shape tape contour concealer from Tarte but my local Sephora and Ulta even online it’s sold out in my colour ! 😩😩😩😩 so since I was in the Laura Geller section I decided to get the real deal concealer, the consistency was smooth when I tried the tester and easy to blend with my fingers. I got the shade medium which is just my colour. It does have good coverage and can be buildable. The downside especially for the price is the quantity, it’s in a very tiny bottle, but a little goes a long way with this product. Another thing is, if you don’t set this concealer with anything it will sink into any type of wrinkles because it did for me under my eye area! 

Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer: Medium

Laura Geller Matte Maker: Translucent

Hope this review helped 😉
