About Me

Hello! My name is Karen and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a university student majoring in Criminal Justice. I love receiving pretty stuff in the mail. I'm currently obsessed with; snail-mailing, skincare and makeup! My favorite color is yellow. I normally don't like bright colors but somehow I find yellow a very positive and cheerful color. I'm not the most bubbly person but I do believe by wearing something bright, will help brighten your day. I also enjoy the smell of the rain and the beauty of nature. Winter is my favorite season, I get to burn my favorite candles and cozy up with cute warm sweaters.

I Have also been obsessing with baths. There is nothing more relaxing than filling up my tub with hot water, while running my favorite bubble bar. I like to go extra in my baths, I LOVE using bath salts, bath oils, bath bombs and anything related towards creating a fun bath. As a full time student and full time employee, it's very important for me to dedicate some of my free time for self-care.♥️

Beauty Swaps

skincare

Skincare is my number one priority. I mostly use anything that provides an intense hydration for my dry sensitive skin. I don't like to use products with a strong fragrance on my face (fragrance-free preferably). Here is a short list of products that I use in my day/night skincare routine:

  • facial moisturizers
  • serums for hydration or anti-aging
  • toners
  • essences
  • eye creams
  • sheet masks & peel of masks
  • facial mists

make-up

I'm very basic when it comes to makeup. I don't use bronzers, contouring products, and crazy lip colors. Please do not send me dollar store makeup, lip gloss, blush, single eye shadows, lip tint and anything cream formulated. Here is a short list of products that I would prefer:

  • brow liners in dark brown
  • mascara
  • foundation powder in light medium
  • liquid lipsticks
  • lip balms
  • nail polishes
  • make up brushes of any kind

Comment: We did Trick or Treat here in Concord NC. We did it socially distancing by placing a small table in our driveway with small bags of 4 small candy bars in each one and then zipped them closed. My DH sat in a chair about 6 feet from the table so none of the kids could grab more than 1 bag. I sat inside in the window so I could see the kids too. My DH had several parents tell him they appreciated his social distancing from the table and kids. We had 41 bags and the last kid was told to take the last 2 bags and then my husband brought the table and himself in.
