New Makeup? Yes, Please!!!

Hello Beautifuls! I’m in Florida and I guess you can say I’m finally rested and up to writing a blog. We got here about three weeks ago, and in those weeks I have really been getting my shopping and eating on. On top of my “treat yo self” attitude, My baby brothers have been spoiling us too. They are the cutest!

I’ll be sharing the new makeup I’ve gotten today. I’ll do another post of the clothes and accessories! Yes, they have to be divided into two. I’m telling ya, my “treat yo self” motto has been going hard here. Since, I’ve slowly been purchasing these item, I didn’t notice how much I’ve accumulated until now. Good thing I didn’t bring that much makeup with me this time.

Only one of the products I bought was a replacement and that was the tarte shapetape concealer. That is my ride or die concealer. I’ve been using it for quite some time now. If you haven’t given it a try I suggest y’all head to an Ulta and give it a go.

Besides the tarte shapetape, I also purchased a tarte primer, this is the first time I’m trying this primer and so far I love it. I hate the super matte, dry makeup look and about all the primers I’ve had before do just that. Since, it’s summer I wanted a more glowy look and the tarte base tape is a hydrating primer and it gives me a great moisturizing feel and leaves my skin glowing. It’s a new fav for sure.

Another primer I got to give it a try is more on the affordable side. It’s the infamous elf poreless putty primer, it is told that it’s a dupe for the more high end tatcha silk canvas primer. Which is another primer I wanted to test out but, didn’t really want to spend fifty something dollars on it. This dupe is only $8 and you can’t beat that. According, to Jeffree Star it’s does the same job as the tatcha one. I haven’t been able to give it a try since I’m so attached to the tarte one. But, I’ll give it a try and give an update.

Moving onto some foundations. Both are new products and had launched while I was here. I was so excited to get to try these ASAP, being in Japan we don’t really have access to new products. I’ve tried both and they are amazeballs!!!

The Juvias Place is one that took the makeup industry by storm. It’s so full coverage a small dot goes such a long way. Like holy cow! The price is the cherry on top, it’s only $20, like it can’t get any better than that!

The second foundation is the hello happy from benefit. This is not as thick or full coverage as the previous foundation but, it gives me the coverage I need and it gives me the glowy look I want. It’s perfect for this hot weather in Florida. I’ve been using this foundation the most since I got it and the packaging is the cutest.

This product is a powder foundation, I took the recommendation from one of my favorite YouTuber, Nicole Guerriero. She wasn’t playing with this one!!! If you don’t like to put in the time to blend out or you just simply don’t have time, this is the makeup forever powder for you! It’s like no other powder I’ve tried before. It’s blurring and the coverage is out of this world. It’s a definite favorite for me and will always be.

I also picked up another makeup forever product, one of my favorite blushes fell and broke into dust. Tragic! So I had to get another blush. This blush is so pretty and a little goes along way. Like I have to be careful or I’ll end up looking like a clown in these streets. For $25 you get the blush and refill pan. It can be swapped out for a bronzer or highlighter.

The last products are more skincare. The first product my sweet baby brother got for me along with another thing that I’ll share later in a different post. This glow oil makes me look like a have the skin of a goddess. My skin feels and looks so smooth and the smell screams summer times. Before I go home I need to buy another bottle I need to glow all year round.

Second product is a lip mask. It’s suppose to leave your lips smooth and reduce lines. I haven’t given it a 100% try but I did test it out for a few and for the amount of time it did make my lips smooth. I’ll give an update later on.

And lastly is a somewhat new product that’s hit the scene. It’s definitely new to me! My favorite youtuber Nicole Guerriero raves about this sunscreen. I have never been a person that protected myself from the sun but, the older I’m getting I would like to save my face from wrinkles and dark spots. Also, I hate putting sunscreen on, it smells gross, it’s feel so nasty on and it’s a total b*tch to take off but, this product allows you to protect from the sun and put on makeup on top of it. It’s sort of a oil consistency and at the same time hydrates your skin. It’s pretty amazing! You can find it in Sephora or on their website. For a while they were always sold out and this was the last one they had in store. So, I’m guessing it’s a great product. I’ll give it a try and give an update along with the other products.

Thanks for reading! Please Like, Share, & Follow!!!

New Years Goals!

Hello Beautifuls! Happy New Year’s to all of you beauties. I hope you all had an amazing time ringing in the New Year with family and friends. We kept it really simple at the Boucha home, we went out to dinner and were home by 9pm, it was a wild night. I was able to call my mom from the future, which was pretty funny and so weird that I was already in the year 2019 and my parents where waking up on New Years Eve. Since, we were so “wild” we went on a little adventure and took Jason ice skating for the first time. It was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. Before, getting on the ice he spotted a little train and it was the first thing he wanted to ride. He has a little obsession with trains or as he calls them “choochoo”, he had his money ready for his train fare and everything. Jason didn’t do much skating due to him going all limp noodle when he was put on the ice so, daddy did much of the skating and pushing him around. I stood on the sidelines and took as many pictures and videos as I could and I didn’t trust myself on the ice with my squishy or trust my husband to get good pictures. Needless to say, we all had a great time and made some awesome memories with my little family. Look how cute my little squishy looked all geared up for the ice.

Now, onto a little rewind of my goals last year and my new goals for this year. In the year 2018, I felt like I accomplished a lot of the goals I set for myself. Last year, I wanted to revamp my wardrobe and I actually did it. Living in Japan, most of the women are so well put together so, I felt inspired to step up my game. I also set a goal for my education, and I’m getting closer to finishing my certification course. Last year, I put up some items I wanted to get and I am so grateful that I achieved getting all of the items I wanted. One of the biggest goal I had last year was going home and seeing my family. Although, I accomplished some of my goals 2018 through in some surprises my way but, who doesn’t like surprises.

My 2019 goals have little less materialistic and more travel and working on myself. This year my main goal is going to Tokyo Disneyland, even if all my other goals don’t happen, going to Tokyo Disneyland will make 2019 an amazing year. Along, with going to Disneyland, I would like to travel to different places in Japan. One of the places that we are for sure going to this year is Okinawa, to see the beautiful beaches and spend time with our friends. In 2019, I would like to lose a few pounds, I’m not trying to be a Victoria Secret model or anything, I would just like to go back to pre baby weight. I want to work on reading more books and watching less Netflix, I want to be the example for my son and at the age he is at right now he copies everything mommy and daddy does. I’m hoping I will be able to potty train my toddler this year, so this can go one or two ways I either go crazy by the end or I’m one happy mama and I have a potty trained toddler. Sooooo, wish me luck! Finally, I would LOVE to reach 100 followers or more here on my blog by the end of the year.

January Favorites.

Hello beautifuls! As the first month of the new year comes to an end I want to talk about my January favorites, from books to makeup. Most of these products I have had for a couples months, but I have fallen in love with these products in the month of January.

First, I’m going to mention my favorite book of the moment. This book brings me back to middle school/ high school days. I would read these books all the time. I was at the MCX (store on base) and I found this book and I had to buy it. The stories are full of love and lessons, they are so beautiful. They had different ones, but I chose this one because I am so grateful for my mommy and being so far from her makes miss her so much. I am no longer a two-hour airplane ride from her. I read this after I’m done with my daily devotional and praying. Favorite book this month for sure.

Having so much do this upcoming month, my Lilly Pulitzer agenda has been my best friend. Every line is filled. I have a horrible memory and forget things in 2.5 seconds, so writing things done really help me. With school and a new job, I need to write down my due dates for assignments and write the days and hours I work. I also find it super relaxing to decorate and plan my days. I’m obsessed with stationary, whether it post its, thank you cards, stickers, stamps, you name it and I can’t get enough of it. Here in Japan, stationary and planner decorating is a big thing. Every time I go to Daiso or Seria ( I have a post about these stores, Shopping in Japan.) I always end up leaving with cute stationary. I have about a thousands post its and notebooks. My washi tape collections is growing for sure, I mean who can pass up cute stationary for a $1! I love how small it is and I’m to take it with me, which I do.

Now on to the one piece of jewelry I wear all the time. It does not matter if I’m wearing gold or not. I am seriously obsessed with my Tiffany & Co. necklace I got for Christmas. It one piece that I never leave the house with out, besides my engagement ring.

For makeup there hasn’t been much of a change since the my favorite beauty products. The only thing that has changed is my go-to bronzer and blush and primer. But, I also still included the products I always use and are my ride or die products. I’ve had the NARS bronzer and blush for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that I have fallen in love with it. The bronzer makes your skin glow and the blush is kind of sheen, shimmer blush, which is my favorite kind of blush. It also saves me time, its two in one. The new primer is Smashbox Primerizer, holy primer! This thing is magic, it makes my face hydrated and flawless. It does an amazing job filling in your pores and giving the face an airbrushed look. Absolute fav!

In 2017, I was starting to get into skin care. I got the Clarisonic Mia in December, and it totally changed the game on how I was my face. While it exfoliates and cleans your skin, it gives you a nice massage on your face. It helps get off every drop of make up that is on my face. The exfoliate I like to use is the Micro-delivery Exfoliating Wash, it is gentle enough to use twice a day. I use in the morning when I wake up and at night before going to sleep. After, I wash my face in the morning I have been using the origins Eye brightening cream. I have really bad dark circles and this has helped a lot in month I have been using it. I also, moisterize with the TATCHA water cream. It is so hydrating and makes my face feel like a baby’s bottom. It is worth every penny, for sure.

Last, but not least, my favorite perfume. Just like skin care I didn’t start getting into perfumes until 2017. I would only use body spray and lotion. But, this is a new love. I have three other perfumes, but the one I reach to more often is my Chanel Chance. It smells so amazing. It has a very girly and sweet scent to it. It is my absolute favorite. DSC03099

I hope you all enjoyed my January Favorites, Let me know if any of these products are your favorite too. Also, let me know what your favorites are.

Set Goals & Crush them!

Hello Beautifuls! I am writing on here today to talk about goals. I know we are in the second week of January, but it’s never to late to set some goals. It does not matter if you want to set them in the middle of the year, month, or week. Goals are goals. Set them whenever you feel like you want to. This is the first year I have ever made a “dream/goals board”. I wanted to visualize my goals and dreams and put out good vibes out in the world. I pray everyday and declare my goals will come true in the name of Jesus Christ. Staying positive, keeping faith, and never giving up are key in making your goals happen. The two main goals I have set for this year are to travel with my little family and reach 500 followers on my blog. The other goals are to revamp my style and wardrobe, start a healthier lifestyle, and going back home to visit my family and friends. I am very excited for this year. This is going to be our year! I hope you all accomplish all your goals this year. XOXO.

This Is Our Year.

First, I want to say Happy New Years, all the way from Japan! I hope you all had a great New Years Eve. This is my first blog post of the new year. I have changed and updated a few things in my blog. I hope you all like the little changes I have made. I still can not believe it is 2018. We did not do anything exciting. The Boucha’s just stayed home, watched some movies, and had breakfast for dinner. I never got out of my pajamas, I took a shower and got back into pajamas. I mean what better way to start the New Years in comfort. Being Hispanic meant you get all dressed up for the holidays, to just sit in the living around family. I do not mean put on some jeans and a nice blouse. No, you put on a nice dress with some heels, make up on fleek. To just sit on the dang couch. I find it hilarious, I did miss it a little though.

New Years day, I believe this is the only holiday the Japanese celebrate, so places out it town were closed. We did our workout, we then got ready to go for a walk. Jason got a little bike from his grandparents, so we took it out for a stroll. Jason still can not pedal and we can not take them off. It was a struggle, the pedals kept rolling on his foot. He would not keep his feet on the non-moving pedals. We tried putting Velcro on his shoe and pedal, but it was a fail. The entire time Jason had his little legs lifted up or my husband lifted the front wheel off the ground and rolled with the two back wheels. Overall, it was a pretty chill day for us.

This is going to be great year. We hope to go on as many adventures as we can this year. Let’s see what this year will bring. I hope you all achieve all the goals you have set. If you hav not set any, just keep living your life to fullest!

Adios, 2017!

Holy Moly! Can you believe there is only 1 one day left in 2017. This year has flown by in the blink of an eye. I can not express enough how great 2017 was. Of course, it had some downs, like moving across the world to Japan and leaving our family behind. Eventually, I started to see this was an amazing experience for us, we still can not believe that we are in Japan. God has blessed my little family so much this year. It was full of experiences and adventures. I can only hope 2018 is an even better year for the Boucha’s.

Going into the year 2018, I do not want to say the cliché saying ” New year, new me.” How many times have we heard this dumb saying and nothing happens. This year, I want to continue having adventures and hopefully do some traveling and start creating memories with my little family. One of the things I would really like to do this year is to go to Tokyo Disney. I love Disney and I hope to eventually go to all the Disneyland’s around the world. I hope Jason will enjoy it as much as I am. I am slowly turning him to a Disney fan, but he’s only one and half, he can turn on me. I will probably start to cry from disbelief of being in Tokyo Disney. Also, I want to ring in the new year with some organization.

One of my favorite things to watch on tv is “reality TV”, My favorite show being is Keeping Up With The Kardashians. My favorite of them all is Khloe, she is goals. I watched an old YouTube video of her pantry and giiirrrlll … I became obsessed with it. I began looking on Pintrest and other YouTube videos to get more idea. I finally got my pantry organized. It looks so much better. I have a few more things coming in the mail, but being overseas shipping takes forever and a day. #Overseastruggle. I may do an update once everything has arrived. I started with what I had, it is better than nothing.  I just love how it all turned out, it may not look as good as Khloe’s, but her pantry is the size of a room. I also organized under the kitchen sink where all the cleaning supplies are. ( I have child proof locks, so my rugrat can not get to them.)

I mean look how good it looks. It makes me so happy. My husband said it is turning into an addiction. I do not think it is that bad, I just like how clean and organize everything looks. I still do not know what to do with the cans. If any of you have any ideas please let me know.

I still can not believe this is the last blog post of 2017. I started my blog a few weeks ago, I was going to start it in 2018, but there was no better time than the present. Why wait any longer? Creating my blog has been an amazing experience. I have so much fun coming up with new content. I hope in the new year I will have more followers and more people will enjoy my blogs. To my amazing followers now, thank you so much for your support and I hope you keep enjoying my posts. I hope you all have a great New Years with family and friends.  XOXO.
