Hello Beautiful Babes!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are ready to kick butt this week. The season has FINALLY come for my FabFitFun unboxing & review! I have been looking forward to recieving this box for months and I am so excited to finally be able to try, review and share the products I loved in my box. For those of you who don’t know, I am a FabFitFun Partner and I have a very special link and code to share with all of you who may want to try this amazing box for the first time for only $39.99! These boxes typically cost $49.99 every season and they value over $200 or more with so many awesome products inside.

UnHide Lil’ Marshmallow Blanket

I think I was probably the product I was most excited to try. It is this super soft and cozy which is perfect for the cold winters we will be experiencing out on the east coast. I absolutely love the feeling of this blanket and the fact that it’s oversized is perfect for my small body to curl up into so I watch my favorite Christmas movies this season!

LashesMD Eyelash Conditioner

So this was one of my add on options that I just wanted SO badly to try and even though it may be a little too early to tell any difference, I have to say this is one of my new favorite products that I have now included into my everyday night routine! If you are like me and wear makeup basically everyday to work, then you probably experience some troubles with your lashes too. Now I try not to wear a ton of makeup during the work week, but sometimes I just feel weird going out in public without a little something on. In the winter time I notice that my lashes become extremely damaged and I have been trying to find a new trick to strengthen and keep them hydrated which this product does pretty well! Again, it’s probably a little too early to tell any major difference but this morning my lashes looked healthier and were soft to the touch so that has to count for something. 10/10 FabFitFun because I love it!

Rodial Soft Focus Glow Drops

I just recently got into using good quality primers lately and when I saw these glow drops were an option you know I had to try it. The drops are meant to brighten your complexion and give you a slight dewy look to your makeup which I LOVE! The product was so light on my skin and I didn’t feel like my skin was weighed down by my makeup throughout the day. Especially with me working all day, sometimes I am in need of a drastic touch up halfway through the day and when I used this primer, I didn’t feel the need to go into the bathroom to touch up which was great! I will definitely be using this product more often.

LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt

This organic balm to oil is amazing! I struggle so hard with dry skin all over during the winter time so I have all the moisturizers and balms on hand. The thing that’s unique about this balm to oil is that it has multiple different uses. You can use it on your face, your lips, your hands, elbows, knees and toes (LOL). I love having a balm that can do it all so this will definitely be a must have in my bag all winter! Just be cautious, a little does go a long way so if you are going to use this product, don’t use a ton unless you want to feel like an oil slick for the rest of the day.

Vera Mona Color Switch Solo

I hate cleaning my makeup brushes. There I said it! I hate having to sit and wash them then lay them out to dry in hopes that they will be dry the next morning when I need them. Well thankfully I don’t have to do that anymore! Sorry too cheesy? Anyways, this product has to be one of the coolest products I have tried in a FabFitFun box. It’s basically just a dry spongy material that doesn’t require any water or soap. You just stick your brushes in and it cleans any color or excess product off of your makeup brushes! It works amazingly well and I totally recommend it to any of you who are into the makeup world.

INC.redible NailsInc Thirsty Hand Duo

I typically never use hand masks so this was a new experience for me. The gloves contain plant extracts, ahea butter and vitamin E to help reguvinate your hands. Even though I found it a bit odd to just sit and do nothing while these gloves worked their magic, I have to say I was very surpirsed at how great my hands felt afterwards. It took a hot minute for the excess lotions to get into my hands but afterwards they were SO soft! I’m not 100% sure if I can use them again or if it’s just a one use only type of product, but I will be sure to do some more research. Thanks FabFitFun!

Drybar Prep Rally Prime & Prep Detangler

I have never tried any Drybar products or visited their location (which I so want to), but when I saw one of their products in my box I became over the moon excited! I actually used this product this morning after my shower to help prep my hair for my blow dryer and straightener and I was totally impressed! Again all the products I receive are full size so I will be able to use this product for a long time which is so great. I cannot express how easy it was to brush through my hair after spraying a ton of the product through my knotted mess and then after blow drying and straightening my hair, it still felt soft and healthy which is so awesome! I will definitely be purchasing this product in the future and I totally recommend it to anyone who styles their hair as much as I do.

Makeup Eraser in Original Pink

This was the one product that I had heard about before receiving and I have to say I was kinda skeptical to use it. Well you heard it here folks, the Makeup Eraser works! I was so SHOOK when I tried it. It felt so nice to take off my makeup flawlessly with just a washcloth and water instead of using makeup wipes that can leave oils on your face. It’s so easy to use and I’m surprised I haven’t been using this already, but it may be my newest obsession!

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post and highly consider checking out the boxes in the future. I hope you all have a fabulous rest of your week too. I probably will not have post for next week Tuesday due to the holidays being around that time, so Merry Christmas my fabulous babes and have a great kick off to the new year!

Maintaining Balance Between Work + Life

Hello beautiful babes!

I hope you all had a great kick off to your week and are just about as ready as I am for Christmas break. Sorry for not posting yesterday, Monday I had to work late and by the time I go home I was ready for a glass of wine and to curl up in my bed, so I didn’t have the brain power to finish writing this post for you. I feel like lately I have been behind with all my postings on this blog and my socials which has been tearing me up because I honestly love writing and talking with you all, so I am making it a point to be better at keeping you all updated with how things are going in my life! Since starting my new job I have been trying to fgure out the proper balance between working 9-5, commuting an hour and a half between CT and NYC, and being awake enough to want to workout or spend time with the people I love. I think this post is so important to read for those of you struggling to find balance between working your 9-5 job and still maintaining your personal life.

Time management

Obviously this is the most important aspect. Your week is going to full of craziness, but the biggest way to balance both work and play is learning to manage your time well. Yes most of my time is spent at work from 9-5 but when I’m home, I’m trying to be better at not wasting time when I’m home. Now, there are some nights when I want to just sit and do nothing for the rest of the night and that’s totally cool! But if you know that you should go to the gym or wash that pile of laundry sitting upstairs or prepping dinner for the next day then make the time to do that before settling in for the night. At the beginning of every day I make my to-do list which helps me better determine how to manage my time for the week. I can better plan the days where I may have more free time to do the tasks that are waiting to be done for work and for my home!

Prioitize your energy

This can kind of go hand in hand with what I shared for time management. Prioritizing things can be difficult when you are first starting off in your job. Lately I have been feeling like I have to dedicate all of my energy to my job (which is fine) but I am trying to be better at not just prioritizing time but also energy. In marketing it can be hard to turn off the work because it is a constant ‘must be available’ attitude. I am trying to be available but also take time off where I need time off and unplug from everything when I need to unplug. I am someone who experiences extreme burnout so I try to make a concious effort to prioritize my energy in healthy ways. So the next time you feel like you are always on the go, check in with yourself and take break when you need it!

Create healthy habits

Something I have noticed since starting my busy schedule is figuring out how to keep my healthy habits in check. I actually like being active and when I started my new job that became a little more difficult. In order for me to stay mentally on top of my game is to workout and maintain a healthy meal plan. Don’t get me wrong I love my burgers and candy, but I am trying to be better at mainatining balance between working and keeping myself healthy!

Take time for yourself

Now understandably, during the week it can be hard to take a lot of time to yourself. But I try to take a night or two during the week to really focus on my wellbeing and detox mentally so I am all clear for the rest of the week! As I love to say in all my blogs, self care is so important so make sure to leave time at night to destress.

These are just a few tips I have that I am starting to incorporate into my weekly routine and I hope that these tips can help if you are going through the same work life balancing struggle I have been going through. Again, I’m so sorry for not posting yesterday due to crazy schedules and I promise I am working on being better at posting more regularly for you to enjoy. Have a great rest of your week you guys and I can’t wait to talk to you all again real soon!

XX,

Hannah Rose

Latest Obsessions + December Goals

Hello beautiful babes!

I hope you all have been having a great kick-off to December. It doesn’t feel real that Christmas is right around the corner, but needless to say, I’m super excited! I have been keeping really busy between working and well, working. It was a crazy week last week working at Starcom and then working all weekend at my other job, The Beehive so I am so ready for another break which is why I am so pumped for Christmas. My family is driving in on the 20th to spend Christmas here with us on the east coast and I am really grateful that we will all be together for the holidays. Since I am in this festive mood, I thought today would be a great day to share my latest obsessions and goals with you for this month of December!

Girl Go Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

So this woman is a freaking guru when it comes to giving advice on how to be a badass female. I recently started reading her book on the train going into NYC every morning and it is a PERFECT read! She talks in-depth about being a mom, dating and becoming the CEO of her own brand which is so inspiring to me now that I am starting to make my way into my career. If you are looking for the perfect gift to give a girl looking for a little direction in life, then this is the book you need to get!

Snowy Nights

Now I know that it absolutely sucks to wake up in the morning and have to shovel the driveway or scrape snow and ice off your car, but there is something so beautiful and relaxing about snow falling at night. I was walking to the subway from work yesterday and even though I was freezing my butt off, I just thought the snow looked so beautiful falling between the tall buildings and city lights. I know this may sound a little cheesy, but it was a really awesome moment for me! I especially love coming home and warming up with some tea and just watch the snowfall outside, it’s probably one of my favorite winter activities. Well, that and throwing snowballs at Nick.

Disney+

For those of you who aren’t aware, I am a HUGE Disney lover, so when Disney+ came out, I was SO ready to watch all the nostalgic movies and shows I loved when I was younger. I have been binging all my favorite shows like That’s So Raven, Suite Life of Zack and Cody and so many more. If you haven’t had a chance to check out their new steaming service yet, hop on and start watching!

Plaid Oversized Blazer’s

I just recently recieved my jacket from Amazon and I have to say it is one of my new favorite pieces in my wardrobe! It is so cozy and the perfect addition to any outfit for the holiday season. I am absolutely obsessed with the look and I encourage you to pick one up asap!

Now time for some goals:

  • Apartment hunt with Nick and be in a place by January
  • Start savings plan on Every Dollar
  • Travel back to Michigan to visit friends
  • Create 4 more posts for this month
  • Get back to consistent posting for PYM

I hope you all enjoyed this post and have a great rest of your week! I am so thankful for each and every one of you who take the time to read my posts and share them around because it honestly means the world to me. I will talk to you all again next week, so keep a look out for a new post!

Hannah Rose
