Memorial Day Fashion Post + Target Coupon Code

 * means affiliate link

Heyyy there! Happy Sunday!
 I typically don't post on Sunday's, but I figured since tomorrow is Memorial Day and I am not sure if I will post then because my husband and I are currently in the process of moving again! Ahhh! My husband travels a lot with his job and I love being with my husband and traveling so I always go with him. It is a win-win situation. :)
Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays. I love any holiday that can celebrate our troops and their families. My Father-In-Law and my Papa (who is in Heaven now) are both Veterans, so Memorial Day is not just another day for us. I am extremely thankful for everything that anyone that has been/is/will be fighting for our country and all of their family members. It takes a lot of sacrifice to have someone in the Military....for that I am forever grateful!
One way my family and I usually like to celebrate Memorial Day is by having a cookout and spending the day by the pool. I love dressing up and displaying my American Pride on days like Memorial Day and 4th of July. So I found some adorable pieces just in case you are just like me...


Okay, so first up I found these two very patriotic tank tops. They are both from a Boutique that I follow on Instagram called 512 Boutique. They have some of the cutest stuff! You should definitely check them out. Both tanks can be paired with anything really...navy or red shorts or 
even jeans or black leggings. 

You can find the tank tops here and here


For my dress lovers, I found these two adorable dresses! I am in love with the both of them! They both look so comfortable. I found both dresses at another Boutique I follow on Instragram (are we seeing a pattern here? haha). The Boutique is called In Bloom Boutique and is definitely another one you should check out. The Navy and White dress on the left could be paired with some red accessories to really give it the red, white, and blue look. I personally would not pair the dress on the right with a lot of accessories...maybe just one bracelet because you don't want to take away from the dress. 

You can find the dresses here and here



For those that will be spending the day at a pool, lake, or the lucky ones that get to spend it at the ocean I definitely did not want to leave you out. I found some American Pride bathing suits at Target aka my favorite place in the World. I can definitely spend way too much money there. Target literally has everything, so it comes to no surprise that they have adorable flag bathing suits. I think both pieces are beyond cute and actually you could get both and just mix-match the different pieces together. So you would actually end up with 4 different bathing suits instead of just two. :)

You can find them here* and here.*

Review: Hask Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment

Hey there loveys! It is almost Friday..woot woot! 
If you have read any of my previous posts then you know I am obsessed with oils. I love them all! So when I ran across this little bad boy at Walgreens I knew it was coming home with me. It is the Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment from Hask. I had never heard of the brand before, but the cute little pocket size version of Argan Oil definitely caught my attention. I could just visualize it being in my makeup bag. It would be perfect for traveling or just fit nicely on my makeup counter. So I had really high hopes for it and was really hoping it wouldn't let me down. 
So just keep reading to see if it did or not.... ;)


Fun Facts:
Name: Argan Oil Healing Shine Hair Treatment by Hask
Size: 5/8 Fl oz. (18 ml)
Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Argania Spinosa Kernal Oil (Argan Oil), Keratin Amino Acids (Keratn Protein). Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), lodopropynyl Butylcabarbamate, Benzophenone-3, Yellow11, Red 17, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil
Where to Find It: Walgreens, CVS, Ulta..to see the full list click HERE
Price: $2.99 (some places may vary) 
For More Information: Hask Beauty's Website



Here is how the Argan Oil is described from Hask:
Frizzed hair got you frazzled? Damaged hair got you down? Hask ® Argan Oil from Morocco Repairing Shine Oil to the rescue! This lightweight, alcohol-free oil absorbs instantly to provide frizz-free shine without leaving an oily residue. Argan Oil is rich in essential fatty acids and penetrates hair to restore shine and provide soft, silky results in dry, damaged hair. It’s no wonder they call Argan Oil the “Miracle Oil”! The lively scent will refresh and uplift your senses.

Directions:
 Can be used on both wet and dry hair to create a silky, smooth finish. Apply a coin-sized amount evenly throughout hair, avoiding the root area. Style as desired. For the sleekest, healthiest hair imaginable, use Hask® Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.


Review: 
The bottle for the Argan Oil is plastic and it comes with a pop top lid. This is definitely not my favorite feature of the Oil. I wish it would come with a pump to make sure you don't waste a lot of the product. I am definitely very clumsy and have knocked the Argan Oil over a couple of times on my bathroom counter and the oil spilled out of it. It is like most oils and has a very liquid consistency (you can see in the above picture). The Oil itself though is seriously AMAZING! I can honestly say it is the best Argan Oil treatment I have ever used. You seriously only need a pea sized amount to cover your hair. I only apply oil from the bottom of my ears to the ends. You want to avoid putting oil near your roots unless you like the greasy look. I applied it to towel-dried hair and on completely dry hair. The oil was amazing both ways. It did not make my hair feel weighed down and I was still able to style my hair with heating tools. It really made my hair feel very soft and left it very silky and shiney. It helped so much with my frizzy hair and flyaways.
 The oil is very lightweight and has a very citrusy scent to it. I really enjoy the smell. Another great quality of this product is that it is very affordable. Even though it does come in a small vial, a little does goes a long way. This product definitely did not let me down and actually surpassed my expectations. 
I am beyond impressed.

Review: Covergirl's The Super Sizer Mascara

Well hello there! I hope you are having a wonderful day so far. :)
Do you have that product that when you see it you just smile because it makes you think about warm weather and Summer time? Well I do now. So maybe I am a little warm weather deprived and that's why products are making me think about Summer. I moved a couple of months ago to the northern part of the United States and we are still getting snow...yes, snow in May. Tell me about it. This southern girl does not do very well in the snow or very cold weather. So if a product is bright and colorful it just puts me in a very good mood. Take the new mascara from Covergirl, The Super Sizer, for instance. When I look at it, it just puts me in a good mood. 
Am I the only one? No? Yes? Okay then..moving on. 

So I was sent The Super Sizer and the Intensify Me! Liquid Liner by Covergirl from the lovely people at Covergirl. I could not wait to try them both out because I keep hear amazing reviews about them both from a few people I watch on Youtube. I will actually do a post on the liquid liner later, but today's post is all about The Super Sizer Mascara. 


Here is how Covergirl describes the mascara 
from their website:
The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses. 




HOW TO APPLY

STEP 1
Start by placing the Lash Styler right at the base of the lashes, use the flat side at the base. You will get immediate (even shocking) drenching of the mascara.
STEP 2
Then comb the volume through from root to tip, by twirling or rotating as you go. This will allow the shorter bristles to deliver maximum mascara while the longer bristles comb it through. 

STEP 3
Apply multiple coats to create even more volume. 





Fun Facts:
Name: The Super Sizer by Covergirl
Released: May 2015
Size: 12 ml (.4 fl oz liq.)
Other Colors available: Black Brown, Black, and Very Black
Also available in Waterproof: YES
Extra Tidbit: The bristles in the wand are space further apart than most mascara wands. This is so the lashes are coated with the mascara in groups to give a more dramatic look.

Review:
So, we already know what my First Impression of the mascara is. It is so pretty and colorful. I love the bright colors. It does come in a rather large tube, so I think that might turn some people away because it will obviously take up a lot of space in your makeup bag. To me I don't find that as a problem. I don't mind a product taking up more space if it is worth it. Plus, with a name like THE SUPER SIZER you sorta need a big statement piece. How funny would it have been if the product was super tiny and still called The Super Sizer?! 
I applied the mascara exactly how the directions said to apply it. I was completely blown away with how much volume it gave my lashes. My lashes were almost touching my eyebrows! I actually tried the mascara without curling my eyelashes just to see how well it would do and it actually gave them a nice curl. Then I tried the mascara after curling my eyelashes to see if it would hold the curl and it did! My lashes stayed curled right up until I removed the mascara. I will admit it made me a little nervous at first because it looks like there is a ton of product on the wand, but the directions said to keep the product on there. I am so glad I did because when I applied the wand to the base of my lashes it really did intensify the look and made my lashes look really thick. The wand was very easy to work with and I was able to reach in the corner of my eyelashes to get those tiny lashes that are hard to reach. 
The formula is very nice. I was able to put a few coats of the mascara on without it clumping up or drying on me. I did not have any problems with it flaking off throughout the day. It looked just as nice at the end of the day as it did when I first applied it. 
I am extremely impressed with The Super Sizer Mascara and it has easily become one of my top favorite drugstore mascaras.


Have you tried The Super Sizer yet?
What are your thoughts?
