Rocksbox Jewelry Subscription

Hi everyone! Earlier in the year I ordered a subscription for Rocksbox. Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription box that sells for 21 dollars a month. In this box you will receive three jewelry pieces. You can purchase pieces from your box at a discount or if you do not like the pieces enough to purchase you can send them back and another box will be shipped to you.

The best thing about this box is that when you first sign up you create a wish list on the site and the company will choose pieces from that list to send to you. If that was not enough, you can preview the shipment before it is sent out and can swap out any of the pieces for another.  Through the past year I have purchased a ring and necklace from my sets. I do plan on purchasing pieces from my currant set too!

Rocksbox is so great, and I definitely suggest you give it a try! To get your first month free you can use the code ANNMARIEBFF48. If you do not like the box, which I am sure you will love it, you can send the box back free and cancel at any time! Have you used Rocksbox before? Let me know in the comments below!

Dry shampoo

Hey everyone! This is going to be a super short post, but I wanted to tell you all about my favorite dry shampoo and get recommendations from you all!

The dry shampoo I use at the moment is Living Proof. It is a sample size I got in a subscription box, and I do really enjoy it. It smells nice, and it does not leave my hair feeling gross. It really does work!

With all that being said I do have brown hair and my roots are growing out liking black. I have noticed wire from where I sprayed in some areas. It doesn’t bother me a whole lot since I will usually wear a hat anyways, but I am wanting a shampoo that doesn’t do that. It is a bit pricy selling at 15 to 29 dollars depending on the size of the bottle. That is really the only two complaint I have about this shampoo.

I really do love this dry shampoo and do recommend it if you have the chance! I suggest the sample size if you do not use it a lot! This is where you all come in! In the comments below leave your favorite dry shampoo for dark hair or any tips you have for making hair last longer between washes! I need all the help I can get, because I hate having to wash and dry my hair. Hit the like button if you can relate!

ShadowSense

Hi everyone! Today I am going to tell you about ShadowSense. Let me start by saying this is game changing eyeshadow! ShadowSense is part of the SeneGence line and can be purchased from a Senegence distributor.

ShadowSense is a long lasting, anti-aging crème to powder eyeshadow.  When you purchase this eyeshadow you will receive 5.9 mL of beautiful colors. ShadowSense comes in both matte and shimmer colors. Both matte and shimmer shadows sell for $22.

There are currently 15 matte shades. The matte colors that are carried are; snow, granite, onyx, silver violet, amethyst, denim, pink frost, mulberry, garnet, candlelight, moca java, smoked topaz, whisper pink, sandstone pearl, and pink posey. My favorite shade of the moment is candlelight for my lid.  I also am obsessed with onyx. I love using it as eyeliner!

There are currently 6 shimmer shades. The shades that are offered are; copper rose shimmer, sandstone pearl shimmer, smoked topaz shimmer, moca java shimmer, pink opal shimmer, and silver shimmer. These colors are the perfect combination with the matte colors. My favorite color of this is moca java shimmer. It is such a pretty color for the crease and is great mixed with candlelight and onyx!

When I first tried ShadowSense I was very unsure about it. I am not huge on wearing eyeshadow but I absolutely loved this! It is light enough to not feel like I have make up caked onto my eyelids, which I love. If you love eyeshadow and want to try out ShadowSense go to Sun Kisses with Annmarie on Facebook for a 15% discount and free shipping!

Happy New Years Eve!

GenUs

Hi everyone! Today I want to tell you all about the newest shirt I bought. I recently purchased a t-shirt from the company Generation Us, also seen as GenUs.

Generation Us is a company that helps children in the United States and around the world that are in need. This company is so great because of everything they are doing to help these children. Recently GenUs partnered with Goex Apparel and Humanity and Hope to create these shirts. When you purchase this shirt you are helping to create jobs, feed children, improve healthcare, and increase access to education.

The shirt that you are purchasing is a gray t-shirt with the company name, GenUs, written across the chest. What is cool about this shirt is that it is made from recycled materials. The shirt is also so soft; you will not want to take it off! These shirts are selling for 33 dollars, and are sold in sizes XS-3XL. There are limited amounts of each size, so if you are interested in purchasing a shirt then now would be the time!

For those who are interested in purchasing this shirt I will link the site where you can buy it below! Have any of you bought this shirt? Let me know in the comments below!

Everyday Make-up Look

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to take a moment to talk about my everyday make up look. When it comes to make up I will be honest and say I have no clue what I am doing! I stick to the same few things and do not really stray from that. However, now that I am selling Senegence I have tried out a few more make up products and I love them!

When it comes to make-up I only wear a few items. I wear foundation, blush, eyeliner, and mascara on a daily basis! Well a semi daily basis. There are those days where I am just not feeling like putting any make up on. Recently, I have added lipstick or lip gloss to my make-up look.  Every once in a while I will wear a very light eyeshadow too! When putting make-up on in the morning I generally do not spend more than 10 to 15 minutes on my make-up.

I do tend to stick to the same make-up routine, but I do not buy the same products all the time! When buying foundation and mascara I usually buy the least expensive brand I can find. If I am being honest the shade I buy is not always the correct shade for me. As for eyeliner and blush I absolutely love Physicians Formula! It is a little higher priced than other brands, but they are definitely worth the money.  When I wear lipstick, lip gloss, or eyeshadow I wear Senegence! I do wear glossy gloss daily, and definitely am benefiting from it. My lips are not chapped and they are not the bloody mess they used to be. I just recently started wearing the shadow sense and I really enjoy the color candlelight to use on my lid. It is a nude color and it is right up my alley! Another must have is the color onyx. You can use it as a crease color or you can use it as an eye liner. It takes a minute to dry if you are going to use it as eyeliner, but it is worth it! It stays all day and is smudge proof like the other Senegence products.

My make-up routine is the same, but the products are not! I will leave a list of what I use and prices below. What are your makeup must haves? Let me know in the comments below!

Foundation: I generally spend 3-12 dollars. I do not have a set brand

Blush: Physicians Formula- 10 dollars

147 Million Orphans

Hey everyone! Today for Stylish Sunday I wanted to talk to you about my new favorite sweatshirt! It is a gray sweatshirt with the words 147 million orphans across it. This sweatshirt supports the 147 Million Orphans foundation.  Before I go into my sweatshirt and other products associated with the sweatshirt I want to talk about the foundation a little more.

The 147 Million Orphans foundation was created in 2009 by Gwen Oatsvall and Suzanne Mayernick.  This foundation provides food, water, medicine and shelter to the children who are orphaned and living in poverty. They are able to provide all of this by our support.  In other words donations and purchasing of different products partnered up with the foundation.  Some of the companies that you can purchase from are; the 147 Million Orphans store, my first reading club, and DIFF eyewear.  I will link the different shops below for those who would like to contribute to this foundation.

Now onto the sweatshirt! It is a smokey grey distressed vintage hoodie. Across the chest is 147 Million Orphans in white block letters. It is made of 55% cotton and 45% polyester. With all that being said it is the most comfortable sweatshirt ever! I love it and if I could wear it 24/7 I definitely would! The sizes offered are small to 3x Large. I am 4’11” and wear a size 0 and XS normally. I bought a size small. It is a little big on me, but it just makes it that much better for lounging in. Sweatshirts are not the only thing that is offered. They also offer a few shirts. There is a throwback vintage baseball tee that is offered in sizes XS-Small. It has black sleeves with a multi colored 147 across the chest. Another shirt is a white comfort color long sleeve shirt. It has a pocket on the left and 147 million orphans written across the pocket. The last shirt that is offered is the oatmeal/dark heather ¾ sleeves Henley. It has grey sleeves and a white body. Like the last 147 million orphans is written in a square on the left side. All of the shirts are so cute! I have not bought any of them yet, but when I do I will definitely let you know what I think!

This is such a great foundation and I love everything about it! I will definitely be supporting the 147 Million Orphans foundation more in the future. Have you heard of any of the above companies or the 147 Million Orphans foundation? What are some foundations that you support? Let me know in the comments below!

Lipsense Colors

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to talk a little about the lipsense colors. Last week I mentioned that I started selling Senegence. Well for those of you who are not familiar with this company Senegence has a lip line called lipsense. The lipsense line is comprised of lip colors, lip glosses, lip balm, and color removers. The products are all so great!

I will first talk about what lipsense is. Lipsense is a long lasting lip color. It bonds with your lips so that it can last up to 18 hours! You might be asking what makes this different than any other long lasting lipstick on the market. Well, lipsense is smudge proof, kiss proof, and water proof! So you can wear your favorite white shirt and not have to worry about getting any of the color on it! Lipsense is made with all natural materials, meaning there is no lead, wax or gluten. There is also no testing on animals!

Now let’s move onto the colors themselves. There are so many shades of lip colors, and there is something for everyone! If you want a yellow based/warm color you can choose from; beige champagne, bombshell, apple cider, caramel latte, and fly girl to name a few. If you wear more of a neutral color you can get nude, first love, or bella.  If blue based/ cool colors are more your thing there is pink champagne, aussie rose, kiss for a cause, blu-red, or napa. These are only a few of the 36 different colors!  To get optimal stay you should apply three layers of the color to clean and dry lips! The colors sell for $25 and you really get your money’s worth. It is 7.4 mL of beautiful colors!

After applying the color you will coat your lips with one of the eleven glosses that are offered! The glosses offered are; gold glitter, sand, glossy, matte, pearl, bougainvillea, orchid, rose, opal, pink glitter, and silver glitter. These glosses are what add to the longevity of your lip color. They also moisturize and protect the lips. I love the lip colors, but the gloss is definitely my favorite! It is such a life saver. I am always biting my lips and tearing the skin. The gloss helps my lips stay moisturized and prevents cuts from re opening when I move my mouth! The gloss retails for $20 and is worth every penny! Like the color the gloss is 7.4 milliliters.

If gloss is not really for you, there is also a moisturizing lip balm. This lip balm is not only moisturizing but also restorative. The lip balm contains coconut oil, cocoa and shea butters, and orchid flower extract. The lip balm sells for $20. It is 7.4 mL of heaven! This is a must have for the colder weather!

The next product I am going to talk about is the oops remover. It is also 7.4 mL and sells for $10. The oops remover is so great, because lipsense is long lasting and does bond to your lips it is a bit difficult to get off. It is not something you can just wash off with soap and water. The oops remover helps lift the color so you can then wipe it off or fix any mistakes you made during application. It really is a great product to have on hand!

There is so much that is offered in the lipsense line and I would not be part of this company if I did not really believe in it! I am not a person who normally wears lipstick. In fact I have never really liked lipstick until now. Lipsense is a game changer and I wear it all the time! Have you tried any of the lipsense products? Let me know in the comments below!

Sun Kisses with Annmarie

Hello everyone! I recently started my own Senegence business. I am running my business under the name Sun Kisses with Annmarie. This is such a great company that I fully support. I would not have signed up to be a distributor if I did not completely love this company.
Before I tell you how I got introduced to this company I want to tell you a little about the company itself. Senegence was created by Joni Rogers-Kante in 1999. It is a beauty company that is made up of independent distributors, like me. This is why you will not be able to find any Senegence products in stores. Senegence offers many different products such as; lip products, eye products, foundations, moisturizers, perfumes, cleansers, and so much more.
Now to tell you how and why I became associated with this company. I was originally introduced to Senegence’s lip line, lipsense by my ex fiancé’s sister. I was never really a fan of lipstick, but I decided I would give it a try. After all I wanted to support her and her business! My first color was pink champagne. When I first bought it I did not realize my one color quickly would grow into twenty. Now I absolutely love the product! I love it so much that I decided to sell it!
On Sundays I will post about some of these products. I hope that some of these products spark your interest. If you are interested in any of these products stand out to you, feel free to reach out to me! I also invite you to join my group on Facebook. You can follow the link below! Have any of you tried any Senegence products? Let me know in the comments below.
I hope you all have a Stylish Sunday!

P.S. The lipsense color I am wearing is Aussie Rose
