Homesense Addict! Haul and Wishlist

Oh my gosh! Who is obsessed with homesense?! We got one here last year, and it has become my favorite place to shop. If I'm cranky.. I head to homesense. Total happy place! It's like the winners home decor section, but an entire store! I went yesterday and got a few things, and snapped a pic of a few things I'd love to get. Here's a little quickie post w a haul / wish list just to share my homesense love!

A friend of mine sent me a photo of this the other day, and this is what prompted my trip today! I thought it was a plastic cutting board, but it's actually a ceramic cheese platter! Which is even cooler! They had a matching cookie jar which I had in my cart at first, but ended up putting back. I plan on leaving this out on my counter and using it for hot items and cutting things. I already have a skull cookie jar so I couldn't justify getting the jar even though I wanted it.. it had a cute little raised planchette on the top!

I found this lone hot pink towel, and got it for my nail desk. It's super soft, and I've never seen a towel this cute pink! I also grabbed a yummy smelling soap, because I don't have a bar soap in the shower right now. I couldn't resist the little candy corn scented car air freshener, it was only $2. Halloween stuff gets me every time, and my car is stinky usually hahaha...

So excited about this! A king sized sheet set in my favorite color. I used to be able to get fitted sheets in this color at walmart, but they stopped selling them. All of mine are kind of old / stained now.. so I had to snag these! And it's a whole set, which is nice. I don't use flat sheets, but I will use that one for extra fabric or making the boys forts.

I got this display for my KEEP biz! So excited. I've been looking for something to use for display in my office and at in person design sessions for a while. On the bottom of it, it says "hustle" in gold - which is just perfect!

WISHLIST: (aka things I didn't get!)

I don't own a duvet... if I did, I would have bought this moons cover in a second!

I so wanted to get this for my son! It was huge and full of all kinds of spooky lego stickers! I love the halloween lego figures every year!

I loved this little haunted house candle holder set - I always shop this time of year for home decor I keep out all year.

Oh my god... this is sooo awesome! It was a HUGE crow canvas. I want this SO bad for my living room! I have huge blank walls with nothing on them. This is so cute and so ME without being too flashy. So grown up hehe. But it was like $200, boo.

Who doesn't love cake, and florals?

Well... I am off to play w my new things.

Some Of My Nail Work

I've been a nail tech for almost four years now! Here's some of my work from the past year. To follow along w my current work, follow my instagram!

Beauty Counter Charcoal Bar

Have you guys ever seen this product before?

A friend of mine on facebook sells beauty counter products. One day I saw her post a before and after picture of using this soap to treat acne. I've had pretty bad breakouts ever since I was 27 .. my skin was fairly good up until then. Having pretty decent knowledge and understanding of skin.. I tried everything out there to make my acne go away - nothing worked. I had accepted it as my new normal and just learned to live with it and cover it up. When I saw her photo I thought why not give it a try... charcoal was something I hadn't tried yet but had seen quite a bit of buzz about it lately, so I ordered a soap. After a couple weeks of using it, my skin was doing way better than it ever has in recent years! I had a ton of under the skin bumps - those were gone! My breakouts were changed from large, painful ones (and a bunch of small ones) to just a few small ones around my period. I noticed if I skipped a couple of days using it because I was tired at bedtime that there was a real difference in my skin. I love love love this stuff! I'm on my second bar now and I'll definitely not be stopping any time soon with this! They also make a mask, which is minty fresh and does an awesome job of sucking out the gunk in your pores. I got a sample in my last order - here are some photos - you can actually see it absorbing all the crud!

Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a popular ingredient in facial masks. It is even used in hospitals, because nasty chemicals bind to it. Charcoal is good for all kinds of skin ailments, not just acne. It helps rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and more!
