A Few Weekend Bits And Favorites: Candles, Beauty, Lifestyle

Image:Pumkin Tea from Trader Joe's, Coffee Cup From TJMAX. Woman Shares her weekend bits and favorites.   Trader Joe's was my first hit to grab a few things I needed for my household, I couldn't resist grabbing The Pumpkin Spice Roibus Tea. I am not making this up, but hands down the aroma when steeping is the best. I love the way it scents up the kitchen as the steam comes from the cup. DId someone say cup? Yes, I have a fetish with cute coffee/tea cups. But, I am trying to resist the urge to buy a dozen fall cups. I did grab the cutest little (Glitter is always optional) one. It was calling my name, so for $3.99 at TJMAX I felt it was worth the splurge. Oh and I thought the girl on the cup looked like a woman boss.

Can we talk about this cooler weather we are experiencing here in Texas? In which I was able to get out and do a bit of weekend shopping amongst other things.

So my top favorite thing came from Pier One Imports. Can you believe they have the best candles and I got them off the sales rack for 2 for $20?

 Yes, I couldn't believe it either. Nonetheless, I grabbed four of the woodsmoked bourbon scents. They have an African woodsy and nutty smell, almost like being in the forest. I also get hints of nutmeg spice, not to mention it smells smooth and fresh. I think it is perfect for the fall/autumn vibes.

So, I was happy when I saw the Ellen Tracy pallette at TJMAX. I have not tried it yet, but I love the colors Amber Light, Ravishing, swoon and Magnetic Fields.

I have not tried it yet, but I love the colors Amber Light, Ravishing, swoon and Magnetic Fields. The best part is the small compact size that I know will last through the end of the year for me.

The lip repair was recommended by one of the sales reps, and  I am glad I bought the natural mint lemon for $3.50. Made with natural ingredients and it is not waxy feeling. To me, it is not a gloss or balm it repairs, and I felt immediate relief after first use.

 Oh, I must not forget Reveal Ultra Shine Anti- Aging Lip Gloss.

I can't use a lot of things that have unknown ingredients due to my allergens during this time of the year. The one I have in the picture above has only Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Argean Oil, and Baobab Seed Oil and that is what helps nourish, and visibly smooth and minimize the appearance of lines on the lips. Besides, I like to use the pink color when I do not do a full face of makeup for the day. This gives me a nice neutral glossy look in which I love.

 Oh, life can be a mess sometimes, but I am learning to step up and step out for a daily dose of fresh air.

I made time to treat myself over the weekend with a little toll house cookies and cream dream and good conversation with my better half and husband (Rico).
Let's face it no one can work 40 plus hours a week and not make time for for the laughs and a few sweets here and there.
Since we didn't plan anything significant to do this weekend, we both decided to get out of the house and enjoy a little fresh air. It was that simple, nothing hard and nothing expensive. To me, that is what living a slow and easy life is all about, embracing the simple things that life has to offer. 

Fun Fact: I did not dress up at all. I put on a small bit of makeup and tossed a big yellow handbag over my shoulder with black crop pants and an off the shoulder crop top. Then I added a pop of color with the DIY turquoise earrings I made. Click Here To See How To Make Earrings
