Red dress. Just recently wanted to get some red dresses. I think it’s cause it’s spring and I want to wear more color. But I really don’t like pastel colors. I actually think pastel colors make me look more pale. I don’t know. However, I do know that whenever I wear my thin bright red sweater I get lots of compliments on how I look really nice in red. IE… Need more red clothing in my life.
Putting on a facial mask takes up some time and planning, but it’s such a wonderful way to pamper you skin after a long, hot, sweaty day at work (…the air con at work doesn’t work and we don’t have windows that open, so you can guess how bad it gets…) or a night in eating popcorn and watching Game of Thrones. I’ve been trying out Valentia’s Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask, their newest mask product.
I love clay masks, as I have very oily skin and deep pores, especially on my cheeks. The Valentia clay mask works wonderful on my skin. It does tingle a bit, it’s not bad. I’ve had much worse ones where I immediately have to wash it off. This one was just a bit tingly a few minutes after putting it on and then it just goes away. Another plus: the smell. It has such a nice smell. Kind of a fruity flowery scent (I can never really properly describe smells) and it’s not too strong, so it won’t be annoying when you wait for it to dry.
After 15-minutes, I hopped in the shower and washed it off as they suggested: using a wash cloth in “circular motions to remove the mask helping to slough off dead skin and exfoliate”. My skin felt so smooth right after and I notice my pores looked smaller. It’s great to start my nightly skin routine.
Clay Mask claims that it will draw out skin impurities, improve skin tone, reduce pore size, firm & strengthen the skin, and leave skin feeling smoother. The key ingredients in the clay are: Kaolin Clay (draw impurities, improve skin tone), Plant Stem Cells (soothes skin & reduce redness), Spirulina (hydrates the skin), CoQ10, Hibiscus & Cranberry Fibers (firm and reinforce the skin).
I’m loving this mask so much I’ve been using it twice a week and probably need to make an order soon seeing how great my skin has been reacting since I’ve been using this mask.

I’ve done a little shopping the last couple of months that don’t involve fitness clothes or accessories. My most expensive and most needed purchase my was iPhone 6S. I’ve finally upgraded my iPhone 5S since it was starting to actually open. Like legit, the faceplate of the phone was starting to lift from the body and I was scared I would accidentally drip water on it. I had wanted to wait until the 7 comes out, but it was time. And I’ve been loving it since. The camera is awesome. Picture quality is so good. and getting to my apps and whatnot is quick.
Another item I brought that was “necessary” is my London Fog Anise Style Tote. It has two huge zippered pockets on either side that don’t look like pockets and a huge middle section. I can carry everything I need in this bag and I love that it has a drop strap incase I was to carry it over my shoulder. I got it from the clearance section at TJ Maxx, so it was discounted down to about 30 bucks… I think. It’s been a while since I got it.
Keeping with the accessories category, I also got myself a new pair of mirrored sunglasses by Deb & Dave. I really wanted another pair other than the Forever21 I got last fall. They were very affordable and looks great on my face.
Despite the face that I have a hoard of face sheet masks at home already, I couldn’t convince myself not to grab these 3D BeauuGreen Essence Mask. They had several different kinds, but I choose to go with the Aloe because I knew I would be spending a lot more time outdoor this spring & summer. Lots of running is being planned and outdoor events to go to!
Then as a treat for the home and continuing my candle obsession, I brought this Moonlit Orchid candle by SIREN Fine Fragrances. I really like the musky/sweet smells and this is really up my alley. Its so nice to have burning while I working on posts or while relaxing after a good workout. So nice!
So that… I think are my only purchases the last couple of months that wasn’t food or fitness related. I did buy two new workout tops, but maybe I post them later. It’s just more workout clothes… Like I need anymore.
