πŸ‘¨β€οΈ Father’s Day Poem | 2020 πŸ‘¨β€οΈ

Happy Father’s Day to the Dads, enjoy your day! And, my condolences to anyone who have or has lost their dad.

Poem written by Karen K. Boyer

He never looks for praises.
He’s never one to boast.
He just goes on quietly working
For those he loves the most.
His dreams are seldom spoken.
His wants are very few,
And most of the time his worries
Will go unspoken, too.
He’s there…a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life,
A sturdy hand to hold onto
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad.
One of our greatest blessings,
The man that we call Dad.

β€οΈπŸ›οΈ Favorite Types of Makeup that I Love Buying β€οΈπŸ›οΈ

Hey XO Gang.

Welcome or welcome back to my blog, I’m Shabria. Thank you for returning or stopping by, I really do appreciate the love. On this blog post, I want to share with you all my favorite types of makeup that I love buying and it really doesn’t matter if it’s at Dollar Tree, Target, or Ulta.

I love buying…

For Eyes // I only purchase eyebrow pencils, eye shadow, and mascara. The type of eyeshadow that I always purchase are either comes in a trio, quad, or a mini palette in neutral shades. The shade of eyebrow pencils I always buy are either in the shade of black or a brown-black, and the only shade of mascaras I only buy is in the shade black.

Lip Gloss // I only purchase lip glosses in the glossy finish in brown/nude, pink, and clear shades. I really don’t wear lipsticks and lip liners.

Face // I only buy pressed powder and my skin tone is medium dark. I sometimes buy foundations but I have difficult time of finding my right shade. I just know that I’m a warm tone.

So, those are the type of makeup products that I wear. I don’t wear contour and blush. However, I’m still looking for the right face primer and setting spray for my oily skin. So, if you have any affordable recommendations please comment them below. Thanks for reading, much love XOXO

❀️ What’s Las Vegas Like During the Pandemic? β€οΈ

Hey XO Gang.

Welcome or welcome back to my blog, I’m Shabria. Thank you for returning or stopping by, I really do appreciate the love. On this blog post, I want to share with you all on what’s Las Vegas like during the pandemic.

Nevada is slowly reopening as phase one, a lot has changed by those 6 feet apart markings on the floor, sales associates disinfecting the self checkout and cash registers also wearing face masks and gloves, and having those clear protective shields installed but not everyone is cooperating with the new safety guidelines, meaning a few people aren’t practicing social distancing while shopping but I’m not surprised. Before the pandemic, not everyone was practicing personal space always and that was one of my biggest pet peeve of mine, like why are you BREATHING down my back! Also, a few people are wearing a face mask and some aren’t but it’s not mandatory but in my opinion, I wish it was I mean just to protect everyone. My family and I have been following the safety guidelines that’s been issued like washing your hands with soap, disinfecting your surfaces, covering your mouth with tissue while coughing or sneezing, avoiding touching your face, and practicing social distancing by 6 feet — even before the pandemic. I feel like some of us Las Vegas residents are following the safety guidelines and some aren’t but it is what it is and I’m not surprised either.

I’m really safe and confident to step out of my house and get some items like food and personal and yes, I do wear my face mask (before the pandemic, I was already wearing face mask.) Unlike everyone else, I’m really patient for phase two and hopefully that’s reopening the strip. I don’t work on the strip but my mom does and she has been enjoying her extended time off from work LOL. The Nevada report for deaths are 378 and there’s around 6,000 cases, hopefully those numbers still like that IF Nevada residents cooperate LOL *sigh*. Well, that’s current situation right now in Nevada, I heard some states extended their lockdown until June but I also that those states aren’t taking this seriously by practicing social distancing, having parties, and whatnot yeah I’m not surprised.

Anyways, thank you for reading and much love XOXO Oh, I would like to know what’s it like where you live during the pandemic as phase one?

✨❀️ Top 3 Mascaras βœ¨β€οΈ

Hey XO Gang.

Welcome or welcome back to my blog, I’m Shabria. Thank you for returning back or stopping by. I really do appreciate the love. On this blog post, I want to share my top three favorite mascaras and they’re all drugstore, in case you’re wondering. These mascaras really made my lashes full and long. So, not trying to make this intro super long her we go…

Wet n Wild MegaWear Mascara in VERY BLACK | I bought this mascara from Dollar Tree, this is my current mascara that I’m using right now. I only apply two coats on my lashes, it’s just a preference of mine. This does leave my lashes a little bit spider legs effect but I use that mascara comb to remove them.

Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in BLACK | I received this mascara from Influenster for reviewing purposes, I’m not sure if this mascara is still available in stores. I love how the wand evenly coated my lashes, I only apply two coats. I did noticed my lashes longer and full, however it did give my a little bit of spider legs, but I did use my mascara comb.

ELF Volumizing and Defining Mascara in BLACK | I bought this mascara from Target, you can also buy it on their website and it costs $3. I really like the size of the wand and I apply two coats and it didn’t give me spider legs which I didn’t mind nor care. It definitely does what it says, volumizing and defining.

Those are my top three mascaras that I’ve tried, out of these three I only repurchase the ELF and Wet n Wild mascaras because of the prices on them and I love what they do to my lashes. I will be doing blog posts on a mascara wishlist, just like the lip gloss posts. Thank you for reading, much love XOXO

β€οΈπŸ’„πŸ’‹ Top 3 Favorite Lip Glosses β€οΈπŸ’„πŸ’‹

Hey XO Gang.

Welcome or welcome back to my blog, I’m Shabria. Thank you for returning or stopping by, I really do appreciate the love. On today’s blog post, I want to share with you all my top three favorite lip glosses to wear, doesn’t matter what season it is. I will tell you where I buy these lip glosses and how much they cost. So, without making this intro long here we go….

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Champagne Mami | I bought this lip gloss from Ulta for $7, the reason why I bought the lip gloss because the name reminded me of the rapper Drake’s nickname “Champagne Papi” and I wanted to start my light pink lip collection because I didn’t have any at the time. This lip gloss isn’t sticky but I like to apply vaseline first and it applies smooth on the lips, I can definitely say that this is a perfect sheer pink shade.

LA Girl Glossy Plumping Lip Gloss in the shade LAVISH | I also bought this lip gloss from Ulta for $5.50, it was on sale for buy 1, get 1 for 50%. This shade has gold undertones with pink hues, meaning it’s a pink shade with gold sparkles (LOL). I thought this shade was very pretty and I really do enjoy LA Girl brand, so I bought it. The gloss applies smooth on my lips and isn’t sticky unless I apply vaseline first and then the lip gloss. And, yes it does plump up my lips but not extremely, just a tiny bit.

NYX Slip Tease Lip Lacquer in the shade DEXTER | Yep, I also bought this lip gloss from Ulta for $7. I was looking for affordable red lip gloss and I always wanted to try out NYX Cosmetics, this lip gloss applies soo freaking smooth and it’s a little sticky but I did apply vaseline first and then the lip gloss second, to make it less sticky on my lips. I would say that the red shade is a little bit bold for my skin complexion but I do like it.

And, those are my top three favorite lip glosses that I love wearing. You can tell that I love shopping at Ulta because that’s the only makeup store that I can afford LOL. I will share a different blog post my Ulta lip gloss wishlist that I really want to try out, because lip glosses are one of my favorite makeup product to buy. Thanks for reading and much love xoxo
