It's Officially Fall ♥ The Weekend Guide #26

The Weekend Guide
It's finally officially autumn! Now we can start buying Halloween decor, drink as many pumpkin spice lattes and buy an unlimited amount of knitted sweaters and cardigans without an excuse! Though it may be autumn it's till hot and humid where I live. If the weather reports are right though it should be in the lower 80s by next week (that's still a little warm for me tho).

Do any of you change your beauty routine depending on weather? For fall I keep most of my routine the same. I wear light pink shades in Spring and Winter. For summer I use tints and for Fall I switch to nudes or dusty rose shades. But experimenting with your makeup is always fun. Who knows I may play around with terracotta or rich berry shades too. As for nails, the new Essie 2016 fall collection is right up my alley. I love all the shades, especially udon  know me and go go geisha. Another color I've been loving is grey nail polish, it's like the nude for fall.

Snapshots From My Room ♥ Mini Room Tour

Snapshots From My Room
Today I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from my bedroom. I don't think I have ever shared pictures from my bedroom before so I thought it would be entertaining for you guys.

Let's start with my pink crochet rug. You will notice I keep a lot of crochet projects in my room. This rug is one of my favorite projects I've made. The pattern is from a Mollie Makes magazine. The burger slippers are from Forever 21.

Here is a peek at my beauty center. I keep my brushes and my favorite or new lip products on top of my makeup drawers. Let me know if you would like to see a post on my beauty center.

My Tsum Tsum collection has grown tremendously since my Tsum Tsum collection post. I don't know where I'm going to store future Tsum Tsums once this heart shelf is full. Around the heart I have a pastel crocheted heart garland. On top I have a sundae ice cream scoop hair clip that I made from a Twinkie Chan pattern.

Snapshots From My Room
For those who didn't know I'm a magazine hoarder. I love magazines and one of my dreams is to work for a fashion and/or beauty magazine. Nylon Magazine use to be one my favorite magazines because they were so different from other magazines at the time I discovered them in 2007. Since then they've changed a lot and try to be trendy like every other magazine so I'm not much of a fan nowadays. The pink sequin happy sign is from the Target dollar section.

It's only been a month since my what's in my bulletin board post so not that much has changed but I have added a few things such as one of my favorite sleep mask, a pinata star and a fortune. The fortune says "Your home is a pleasant place from which you draw happiness" which I couldn't agree more with.

Here is some more of my crocheted projects. I crocheted these randomly when I was craving doughnuts, my favorite is the panda doughnut inspired from California Donuts. Underneath them is a basket of cotton yarn on top of a Memebox. To the left is a Hello Kitty plush from Chicago my mom gave me from when she went to Chicago a couple months ago. Lastly is the Marshmallow Pop candle from Target I got a couple years ago (I'm a very slow candle burner).

Snapshots From My Room
This is my yarn shelf. As you can tell I have a lot of yarn! When I first started crocheting I would buy new colors every time I went to a craft store so this collection is a pile of colorful skeins from over the years. For those who are curious about the color of my walls its actually a wall color inspired by one of my favorite nail polish, For Audrey by China Glaze.

What interesting things do you keep in your room?

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Mask Packs ♥ Beauty Review

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Mask Packs Review
This review has been in sitting in my drafts section for the longest time. I planned on making a review on the Bonvivant Botanical Mask Packs since I received them in this Memebox haul. However I kept pushing back because honestly all the masks are all pretty similar. There are a few differences among the masks like the type of sheet mask, scent and results. But if you gave me a random mask to try out I probably wouldn't be able to tell it apart. 

The Bonvivant Botanical Masks are not the best masks I've tired nor the worst. But I would use them over and over again (and I have) if I didn't have any other sheet mask to use. They are standard sheet masks. One thing I love about these masks is that you can day them in sets such as the 14 Day Kit or a 30 Day Kit. With that said I hope you appreciate this post.

Bonvivant Botanical Pure Mask Packs Review
Bonvivant Pure Mask Pack #Sodium Hyaluronate + Lotus
"The Sodium Hyaluronate + Lotus mask restores tired and dry skin. Lotus Extract moisturizes and protects skin from damaging environmental factors, while Sodium Hyaluronate delivers intense hydratation. The result is re-energized, healthy, and dewy skin. "

The mask is clear (almost translucent). Faint floral scent. After 10-20 minutes my skin feels moisturized, hydrated, looks clear whitened and brightened. This was one of my favorite masks because it really whitening/brightened my skin afterwards.

White sheet mask. Fresh floral scent (Kind of smells like roses). Moisturizing and nourishing. Mask didn't cover my nose properly (all of them masks didn't cover my nose area well).

Bonvivant Pure Mask Pack #Chamomile + Tea Tree
"The Chamomile + Tea Tree sheet mask cleans and tightens pores, thanks to Tea Tree Extract that minimizes the appearance of enlarged pores and AHA that exfoliates dead skin cells. Chamomile Extract also calms and soothes the skin, leaving it so fresh and so clean."

The mask was semi-clear (not completely white but not clear either). Didn't cover my nose area well. The scent was flowery and woodsy. Like all of the other masks it was moisturizing and gave my face a healthy glow afterwards.

"The Adenosine + Acai sheet mask restores damaged, tired skin. Adenosine re-energizes, whilw Acai Extract delivers rich antioxidants to strengthen skin and protect it from toxins and environmental pollutants."

Semi-clear sheet mask. Floral scent. This was my least favorite mask. I didn't see much of a difference after using this mask. It moisturized my skin but that's about it.
