Product Review

It’s time for another round of reviews of the products I received from the amazing owner of The Spoonique Boutique on Etsy. All of her products are homemade and amazing. I’ve yet to come across a product I didn’t like and if you remember she sent me a LOT of products. 

First we will start with BIRTHDAY CAKE candle.  Amazing, amazing smell!!!  Truthfully made me want to eat a cupcake, LOL. Was strong but not overbearing.  My only criticism,if you want to call it that, was that it didn’t seem to fill the whole room with the scent. Mainly, just the area where the candle was sitting.  And I like my candles to fill the whole trim. Some may not. That being said I would still buy another, simply because it smells so good. 

Next, I want to talk about the face masks. Both are AMAZING!!! They come in either calming scents or peppermint scent. My favorite was the calming scent.  The product went on so easily and provided a nice full coverage without feeling like your face was caked in mud. I usually left them on for about 15 minutes. And I was truthfully shocked at the results. I’ve used other masks in the past with little luck. But these made my face feel so amazingly soft. I have used them a couple more times and had the same result. She’s got a long time customer here. A+ on this product!!! 

Next on my list are the Foaming Bath Salts. These are a lot of fun and they smell amazing. They do just what what the label says they should. And makes taking a hot bath more fun and enjoyable. 

That leads me to the Himalayan Pink Salt Bath Scrub. This product is tremendous!! I have multiple rough areas on my body and after using these in the bath my skin was as smooth as a babies skin. And really a little goes quite a long way so this small container will last you awhile. The smell is tremendous as well.  Another product I will be buying in the future. 

Then the last couple of  products that I will be discussing today are soaps. The first one is the Goats Milk Sweet Pea Soap.  This is one of my favorite actual bar soaps I’ve found in awhile. Knowing that it is made clean and not with a ton of chemicals in it makes me even happier. But the small is great and it does good things for your skin.  After using it I felt very clean and my skin felt very smooth.  Another great product by this shop.  

The other soap that I have used from this shop I wasn’t as big of fan of and it make he the shape and size. I felt like I had a hard time holding on to it and so it was hard for it to do it’s job. But the product smelled wonderful and left a good after-shower smell!  Because of the Shea Butter it did leave my skin feeling smooth. If only I could have held on to it better. Lol 

I have a few more products to review but overall almost every product I’ve tried has been pretty fantastic! If you are interested let me know or you can find her on Etsy or Instagram @ Thespoonqiueboutique. 

I hope when you get your products you enjoy them as much as I do!!

PRODUCT REVIEW 

So last week I received a TON of product from Tracy Wood and the Spoonique Boutique on Etsy and Instagram. She sent me everything from bath bombs to lip gloss. It will take me a LONG Time to use everything but I thought I would give a quick review of what I have used so far. 


This stuff is totally amazing. Put it on your lips and rub it in for a few seconds and then wipe it off and your lips will be soooooo soft. I do this a couple times a week. And I LOVE it!  

This lotion smells soooo good. And I have been using it on my feet. I have the driest feet this time of year and this has helped them to become so much softer. Would definitely recommend!

Maybe my favorite product yet. The pomegranate bath bomb!!! Totally amazing I can’t say enough good things about it. Smelled amazing and my skin felt super soft after I got out of the bath and I smelled amazing too!!! Two for one!!!! 

This little treasure is MY FAVORITE!!!!! Best facial mask I’ve ever tried!!!! I put it on before getting in the bath and let it sit. Then washed it off when I got out. OH MY GOSH. My face has never felt so smooth and amazing. I will definitely be buying this in bulk!!!!
So far everything I’ve tried has been great. So please head on over to Tracy’s shop on Etsy, The Spoonique Boutique and pick up some of her amazing products!  You won’t be disappointed!!

Love Yourself!

Love yourself first and everything else falls in line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in the world – Lucille Ball.

 With everything we do, and that is going on it today’s world we have to learn to take some time for ourselves. It’s not selfish. It’s a MUST. Finding 15 min a day of uninterrupted “me” time can be challenging at best. We all know that when we do find time to do things we enjoy, things just for us, things that makes us happy that we end up being happier in the the long run. 
When people are asked why they generally don’t take time for themselves the top three responses are: not enough time, feeling guilty, or it makes them feel selfish. The more caring or giving a person is the more you will hear these responses. But the question is how do we do it, how do we find “me” time? What activities we should be doing to pamper ourselves? Why we should find some “me” time?
There a numerous reasons why we should all take time to pamper ourselves. Let’s look at just a few 
– It’s a great way for you to recharge!!! Women are often good at making time to help others in their lives feel good and work through their own feelings. Time spent alone gives us a time to focus on our own feelings. 

– It’s a great time to think and reflect. Life these days moves at such a crazy speed that we don’t have time to think about our lives. Taking some “me” time give you the opportunity to think about what’s going on in your life. 

– It can make you more productive. Spending time with friends and family can be great fun and so exciting. But it can distract you from things that are important for you, like your hobbies and exercise and reading. Spending time by yourself can give you time to help you progress toward your own personal goals. 

Here are some ways you could make your “me” time a reality. 
– Stop feeling guilty for taking “me” time bed realize in the long run it’s going to be a win-win. 

– Decide what you feel would be the best way to spend your “me” time. 

– Evaluate your day and see what things are a waste of your time everyday. 

– Learn to say no. 

– Learn to ask for help. 

– At the beginning of the week designate slots for “me” time throughout the week. 

– Commit to a minimum of 15-20 min of “me” time EVERYDAY

There are TONS of options for “me” time. Let’s look at a few that you could easily do during the day!  
– Go for a walk. 

– Read a book 

– Fall in love with a new musician or group 

– BREATHE

– Shop for fun

– Meet a friend for breakfast 

– Watch a movie

– Enjoy a hobby 

– Join a bookclub

– Soak in a bath 

– Do yoga

– Get a massage 

I hope that you see how important finding time for yourself everyday is. And how easy it is to go about finding time for yourself. I hope that you can enjoy some of the listed activities and find some you time this week. Go out and find 15 min for yourself today and enjoy it!!!
