7th Heaven Super Food Blueberry Mud Mask review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Sing it with me! "I'm leaving on a jet plan, don't know when I'll be back again..." ...actually, I am back. Oh what a wonderful trip it was to Texas. I knew the stress of travel and over packed schedule in Dallas would have my skin showing all of it, so I packed this wee mud mask made of blueberries in my bag.

I know how drying the plane can be and part of my wanted to put it on in the airplane bathroom. I did not. I chose to save it for after the longest day and before photos the next day. 

This mask is amazing. The smell is soft and blueberry'ish. The consistency of the mask is creamy though it dries down tight and quickly. I would say mine was done in about 20 minutes? I really enjoyed it and it made me "pause" for a moment, and rest in a busy schedule. After rinsing and drying my skin, it looked brighter, refreshed and radiant. Thanks blueberries and 7th Heaven! 

MakeupUniversity has long been a fan of the 7th Heaven line of skincare for it's commitment to sustainable sourcing of ingredients, natural approach to skincare and affordability! These lil' mask packs hover in the $1-2 range and are widely available at mass retailers like Walmart.

Thin enough to fit in your purse and sealed tight so it won't explode in a suit case during flight. It really helped and was a treat!

Mother's Day is coming up! My birthday in May for an at home spa treatment! - Virtual graduations and being camera ready! Then  on in to summer where hot days can make skin get oily and need a clay mask. So, when would now be a good time to try 7th Heaven?

This Amazon affiliate link will take you some 7th Heaven blueberry masks!

LOVE AND MONSTERS - A Review 2021 - For Family and Fun

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Today, marks the day after everything stopped. Changed. Became covid. Pandemic. Fourteen days to flatten the curve. New normal that is definitely not normal. Friday, March 13th, was the last regular day that my family experienced. It was the last day on the school campus. Last day at work in the office. The 13th was the last of many things, including, freedom to  go to the movie theater! Personally, I love to experience a film, in the theater with other people, popcorn, and a very large screen!

 This film, LOVE AND MONSTERS is a fun, family film. The very first few minutes has a moany groany sex silhouette scene - so if you would like to fast forward past that point it's good from then on and safe for your young ones to watch.

I remember seeing an ad and trailer for this film well over a year ago and was considering seeing it in the theater. The Burbank place is just a quick trip over the hill to Universal to watch at the AMC Theater at City Walk. It's such a fun place to go for a film and then walk the shops and eateries on City Walk.

Yes. That was pre-covid and pre-pandemic. It took a while for me to finally queue this up and watch and I'm so glad that I did! 

I really enjoyed the adventure, the monsters which are well done CGI animations. I liked the characters and sound track and the sense of a quest for the main character Joel.

So why do I write my review now? Because Spring Break is upon us. Yes, even in distance learning (California high schools are still not back to campus. They "may" open back up to partial campus learning in April?)

My point is - with Spring Break travel options being minimal, you may need some options for entertainment. If you need a fun genre mash up film that works well and can be enjoyed by all ages of your family, consider LOVE AND MONSTERS! It's available on Amazon to buy a DVD or stream.

NOTES from Wikipedia about the distribution:

The film was originally slated to release on March 6, 2020, but in October 2019, the release date was moved to April 17, 2020.[16] In February 2020, it was pushed back again, to February 12, 2021.[17]

In August 2020, Paramount announced that due to COVID-19 pandemic the film would be released via video on demand on October 16, 2020. The film's title was changed from Monster Problems to Love and Monsters.[18] The film also played in 387 theaters for the weekend of October 16–18, 2020.[19]

 Trailer from YouTube with description

Seven years after the Monsterpocalypse, Joel Dawson (Dylan O’Brien), along with the rest of humanity, has been living underground ever since giant creatures took control of the land. After reconnecting over radio with his high school girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick), who is now 80 miles away at a coastal colony, Joel begins to fall for her again. As Joel realizes that there’s nothing left for him underground, he decides against all logic to venture out to Aimee, despite all the dangerous monsters that stand in his way. The fun-filled and action-packed adventure also stars Michael Rooker and Ariana Greenblatt.

Throwback Thursday- Besame Cosmetics First Impression

Hi ya Gorgeous! 
It's Thursday and today I have a "throwback" video for you. Though before I get in to that, I want to share that I find it hard to believe that it's coming up on a year of the beginning of the end of the world as we, or I, know it. 
This time, last year, life was a form of normal with school for my family and work for me. Trips were planned and in person convention emcee work was booked and then, everything changed. Hence the Patrick photo. Many days, I feel like I look like the expression on his face! 

After a year at home my body looks like Patrick as well. I know that some chose to seriously double down on fitness. Not me. I seriously doubled down on boxed wine, binge watching shows and lamenting fireside from the couch. Ce` la vie. So goes life. Now, let's talk Besame Cosmetics and the very beautiful Mary Poppins shade of red!
This was actually made a few weeks ago as I had just finished interviewing Gabriela at the flagship store for Besame Cosmetics in Burbank. Oh how I love this color and the history behind it! 
I also really like the wear and feel of the lipstick. You can get your Besame Cosmetics online via Amazon with your Prime account!
