y day starts quite early at about 6 AM with my daughter crying for a bottle.

This is a sponsored post. As always, all opinions are my own. I love Sally Beauty and have for years!
Last week, I had the pleasure of shopping at Sally Beauty. I shop at Sally’s all the time for hair and nail products. This year is Sally Beauty’s 5oth Anniversary. They are doing a great job and 50 years in business reflects that success.
I had so much fun shopping for glasses on OzealGlasses.com. There are so many cute eyeglasses to pick from that I could not pick just on pair! I picked the Radiant Orchid glasses and these round Ospirit Burberry Tortoiseshell glasses. These glasses are a great everyday pair that I have been wearing non-stop. The cool thing about Ozeal is that the prices are so reasonable that you do not have to buy just one pair!
Pantone has declared Radiant Orchid the color of the year which is awesome for purple lovers like me. I was super excited to see the selection of purple Prescription Eyeglasses on OzealGlasses.com. I picked the Ajeya Medium Orchid Stripe after uploading a photo of myself and doing a virtual try on. The base price with single vision lenses and anti-scratch coating was $39.95. This would be the same price if you do not need prescription lenses.
I was always a fan of a clean house free of harsh chemicals, but now that I have a little one crawling all over the house, the importance of using safe products is priority number one. It can be very expensive to choose healthy options, but Walgreens has come out with a new line of products that makes it easy to keep my home clean without having to use harmful chemicals.
I started by cleaning out makeup bag and my makeup brushes using the Walgreens Ology Castile Soap. The soap is a gentle cleanser producing a mild, creamy lather making it safe for sensitive skin and expensive makeup brushes. It has no harmful chemicals like Sulfate, paraben and petrochemical and the product is not tested on animals.It is only $10.49 for 32 ounces. That is a whole lot of brush cleanings!
Steps for cleaning Makeup Brushes from your Makeup Bag:
Pour 1 capful of Walgreens Ology Castile Soap into a small bowl of water. Swirl the brush in the soap and water mixture, being careful to only get the bristles wet.
Gently massage the bristles between your fingers, starting at the base and working to the tip of the brush until it looks like no more makeup is coming off of the brush.
If the brush is really dirty, you can make the liquid more concentrated by adding another capful of castile soap.
Next, press the brushes against a paper towel to dry and and reshape the brush between your fingers.
Lay brushes flat on a paper towel to dry. Always lay your brushes flat to avoid water getting into the handle and ferrule which can cause rust or deterioration of the brush.
Walgreens recently came out with a new line of cleaning products that are free from the following 10 harmful chemicals: Ammonia, Chlorine bleach, DEA (diethanolamine), TEA (triethanolamine), Parabens, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, Triclosan, SLS, SLES. Plus, Walgreens Ology does not use artificial dyes or fragrances.

Active Retro Glam Makeup Looks
I am loving the Retro Glam makeup look that I have been noticing on celebs and on the runways lately. Since I am constantly dealing with the humidity in Florida and the weather is getting warmer by the day, I was looking for a way to create a retro glam look that will stay put. I was able to create an Active Retro Glam Makeup Look with the help of Waterproof RIMMEL Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara, RIMMEL Stay Matte Foundation, and Waterproof RIMMEL Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner.
My sister is back on the dating scene and was looking for a fresh spring makeup look for a date later in the evening. We had a family funday this past Sunday at Downtown Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens. First, we has lunch at RA Sushi and then went Luka Cosmetics to get our makeup done by makeup blogger and professional makeup artist Aracely.
