He pretty much sums up how I feel from how HOT it is here. You could seriously fry an egg on the sidewalk and I am shocked the stuff inside my bag wasn’t all melted or gross in the bag.

Wordy Wednesday

Yesterday we spent most of the day at my sisters visiting and eating the usual 4th of July meal of hamburger/hot dogs!

Then we came home to this hot mess express cause even though it was like 4 hours til dark fire crackers were already going off all around us. He was panting like a mad man and was ready for some blanket fort time with his dinosaur.

I was super proud of him this year. He calmed down about 45 minutes after the fireworks in our hood started and I was able to go outside and try to get some pictures of the fireworks.

June 2017 Ipsy Bag

Lovin the bag this month. The lining on the inside is very easy to wipe down as well which I like in a makeup bag.

Ipsy Bag June 2017 (Flutterbye Chronicles)

On the Ipsy site it says “This loud and proud pouch is a not-so-subtle reminder to *always* speak your mind!”

Doucce Maxlash Volumizer Mascara. I wish I would have taken a picture of the brush because it is ginormous but I forgot. Confused smile With that said I have used this mascara twice and it has been very nice. It does not clump, flake or transfer so that is a winner in my book even though I loathe massive brushes that are the size of my eyeball… Full size retails for $22.00 (LASH30)

Delectable triple moisture body lotion in the scent coconut cream. I was so excited to see this was in my bag because I already love their lemon & cream hand cream that smells like straight up lemon cake…..yum!! Red heart Retails for $14.00 (IPSYTRIPLEMOISTURE)

The Balm balm springs blush. I love getting these little sample from the balm. I think this is like my third or fourth one. I just wish they were a smidge bigger so you can get your brush in there better but I can manage. The shade is beautiful and gives a nice flush to your cheeks. Full size retails for $21.00 (IPSY20)

The Balm is the bottom swatch and the next item from NYX is the top.

Swatches (Flutterbye Chronicles)

NYX whipped lip & cheek soufflé in the shade plush. I really like this shade and it kind of reminds of their mega shine lip gloss in beige but without the shine. I also like that this is a dual purpose product so you can throw it in your purse to freshen up your look after the pool or beach. Retails for $6.00.

NYX Lippie Comparison (Flutterbye Chronicles)

Swatched they do not look quite the same but I promise on the lips they are the same color one just has shine and one doesn’t.
