Men's Shopping Guide Tips

Man is it just me or are  men so hard to shop for!! 

I have included a list below of several suggestions for that special man in your life and even your dad or brother! If you saw my story on Instagram you have seen my top 5 Choices and also below are several more suggestions!!

1. Favorite Cologne (make sure you smell it and approve as you will have to smell it and want to love it ๐Ÿ˜)(
2. Gift card to his favorite Restaurant as he will appreciate the gesture! You're taking him out for dinner ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ(Omaha Steaks has a really good set of steaks for under $75-(
3. Sports Souvenirs- Of his favorite team as this is a great idea if he watches sports as a hobby if he is not into sports see if you can purchase tools that he can use practically to do the hobby! (
4. Tickets- Any kind of tickets to a place that he likes to go to for entertainment! (stubhub is great for sports tickets!)
5. Comfortable Shoes he will thank you if he works on his feet all day and even at his desk they will make a difference!
On insta I have a link to a pair of Kenneth Cole boots that are perfect for work for him and also are comfortable!)

    <div class="shopsense-widget" style="text-align:center" data-mobile-optimize="true" data-options=""> <script> !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script'); </script> <iframe src="//"

* One of my best  clues on a good gift for Michael was by looking at his hobbies and spending habits! Also I  plan on using special touches that will make an inexpensive option still special for us!  Good luck to everyone purchasing a gift for your special someone! May the odds be in your favor if not make sure you keep that recipt!!

๐Ÿ’„Makeup Monday๐Ÿ’„

8:21:00 PM

Today I am reviewing the OMG face mask! And I must say I love it! There are several steps to doing it correctly and ensuring you get the best results.

First step is I took off all of my makeup with my Garnier micellar water and wipe. On the package it says you can use it with or without makeup.
The next step is the white detox bubble mask and I was at first intimidated by it as it bubbles and I have sensitive skin and was unsure if I would have a reaction. But I love it!
It's pretty cool how fast it bubbles up to!
The next step is to put the peel off mask on your face. I only used half of it and I'll probably save some of it for another time!

Beware it is bright bright pink and also it dried pretty fast and your face tightens lol.
I was not expecting it to be as fast which is great it says it can take 30 minutes to dry but it was faster!

Then remove the PEEL off mask!! I needed help with this and Michael got a thrill like he was riping off my face ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…
And then use the serum pad to remove any residue and it smooths out your skin!

I Absolutely love it!
I bought the headband and several masks as they offered a signup discount!! To purchase your own mask this is the link for purchase.

Also make sure you don't put the mask on your eyebrows or where there is hair as that will hurt quite a bit! Don't make that mistake!
Let me know in the comments what you think!

Also linked below are some of my favorite beauty essentials and don't forget if you are looking for makeup brushes you can use my discount code BRIGHTLYSOO25 for 25% off from Mikasa Brushes.

Love & Peace,

Karen B๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
