She Cosmetics is a natural skincare line founded by mother-daughter duo, Diana and Brittney Douglas. They are based in California and are strong believers in the "healing powers of nature." If you are all about natural and organic skin care products I highly suggest you look into this line. And to read more about their story click here.

The star of this post is their Antioxidant Peptide Face Creme, which I won in a giveaway they were hosting on their Instagram account. This face creme retails for $55 USD, but if you visit their website now you can use the coupon code "Welcome" for 25% off your order! I was drawn toward this specific face creme because I was looking for something to help my skin battle the everyday pollutants I would encounter throughout the day.

The Antioxidant Peptide Face Creme claims to "rejuvenate, nourish, and hydrate skin on a cellular level." It is supposed to moisturize and heal dry skin, which we all know I am a victim of, fight against wrinkles and overall improve the elasticity and texture of your skin. This face creme is ideal and marketed for those with dry skin and or for those who are looking for something anti-aging (aka someone like me!!) To see the full list of ingredients click here.

The product has a slight hint of orange and applies super smooth. Since this is a first impressions, I don't really have a lot to say about this product. But so far so good! I've used this about three or four times now and it hasn't broken me out. It does moisturize my dry skin, but not sure about what it's done for wrinkles, because as I said before I haven't yet used this product enough to see any difference. Overall, I can see myself repurchasing this for it's moisturizing powers, especially for the drier months ahead!
 Along with the face creme they sent me three small samples of their other products. The three samples they sent me were of their Synergy Serum, Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub, and their Skin Brightening Oxygen Mask.

  1. Synergy Serum ($35) The Synergy Serum is one of She Cosmetic's most popular items. It is suitable for all skin types and according to their website, claims to "provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, 96% reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin." So for all of those who expect to be out in the sun this upcoming summer, I would say this is something you'd want to look into! The product doesn't have a scent to it, and it applies easily onto the skin. I did notice that it took some time to set and made my skin feel a bit sticky while I was waiting for it to dry and absorb into the skin. However, once it did dry up, my skin felt moisturized and plump! 
  2. Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub ($30) The Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub is what caught my attention the most. I love anything fruity so this was right up my alley. The scrub is created to gently exfoliate the face to restore freshness while also packing your skin with Antioxidants and the vitamins it needs to stay looking healthy. This is suitable for all skin types and worked really well with my dry skin. The texture of this product is of a gel consistency with micro-beads in them. It was not abrasive against the skin whatsoever. Highly considering purchasing the full size of this!
  3. Skin Brightening Oxygen Mask ($35) The first thing I want to mention about this mask is how wonderful it smells! And yes, you guessed it, it smells likes berries. Just like the Oxygen Scrub, this includes blueberries and cranberries to help fight signs of aging. This mask also incorporates fruit pulp to give brightening benefits to your skin. As much as I couldn't wait to use this mask, the moment I did, I had to wash it off, because it just burned my skin. I tried using it a second, and even a third time, but each time it would cause a burning feeling on my skin. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that, but I think it's because my skin is so dry and sensitive, that my skin couldn't handle it. However, my skin did appear brighter after washing off the mask, so it does do what it claims. But I don't think I'd be willing to sit and have my skin feel like it's burning, for the sake of beauty haha. But don't let my experience with this mask deter you from purchasing it! 
So if you're someone who loves natural and organic beauty products She Cosmetics is a brand I would look into for sure! I am not being paid or sponsored by them to write this post, so you can believe me when I say all the opinions about these products are entirely my own. I've been in contact with the company and they are super genuine and sweet! Don't hesitate to check them out! Bonus fact: They are vegan and cruelty-free!

Beluga whales? 

As of lately, or well I guess you can say throughout my whole life, I've always been that one person that always has a weird story to tell. Most people say that they cannot remember any of the dreams they have, but I have never had that problem. Usually I can remember about 90% of my dreams the day after and they always make for a funny story to tell to my friends. So I decided that I'd start writing posts about my crazy dreams because I thought it'd be a pretty fun idea to share with you guys.

Recently I feel my dreams have just been getting weirder and weirder. For instance a couple weeks ago I had a dream that two of my friends and I went on a vacation to a beachy area. And there was a part of the vacation where you were able to feed fish to beluga whales. You could even get in the water with them! So my two friends and I decided it be a good idea to feed them. We got in the water with them and started feeding them fish, but we got scared because they all started swarming us and swimming a little too close. So we decided to get out of the water and eat lunch. But where we were eating lunch was still super close to the water and I could see the beluga whales eyeing us and just waiting for us to get back into the water to feed them. 

The second dream I had started off fairly weird. ( I mean what dream isn't?) I was driving out of my neighborhood and at first the roads were super clear. Then all of a sudden they turned super icy and I was like "FML" I got to turn back, because obviously I didn't want to wreck and I have little to no real-life experience driving in those kinds of conditions. So as I was attempting to turn around all of a sudden I was out of the car and standing in the middle of a mansion. The decor and interor was absolutely gorgeous. There were paintings everywhere, there was lush, red carpeting on the floor, and a chandelier above me. And for some reason I already knew my goal from being in the house, is to find my way out. But the house was like a never-ending maze. Every single room looked almost exactly the same and usually led me back to where I started. I suddenly somehow found my way out and all of a sudden night turned into day and I was at a pool party with my boyfriend, Anthony. We were trying to get some ranch for our food, but the dispenser was empty, so of course us being us, we were trying to fix it. I can't really recall how it ended, but that's the last bit that I remembered most.

The last dream I'm going to talk about still makes me laugh whenever I think back to it. Again I was in a car, but two random girls were in my backseat. (No, I don't think I kidnapped them) It was night time, and we were just randomly parked on the side of the road. One of the girls started freaking out and hyperventilating because apparently we were locked inside the car. I tried to calm her down but couldn't. She started breathing against the window, and creating that foggy smudge, I told her to write out the words "Help" to get people's attention if they were to drive by. That plan failed so I started banging on the windows, and eventually one car finally noticed us. Two guys came out the car, and this is where I questioned our intelligence. I rolled down the window as the two guys came up and told them how we were locked inside the car. I then proceeded to climb out the window and explain how these two girls were freaking out. The two guys didn't seem to question how dumb we were and told us they'd get us home. The two guys got into two different cars, again not making sense since they both arrived in one car together. I got in one car and the two girls got in the other. I sat in the backseat, and the guy started chuckling a bit and said I was adorable and didn't need to feel shy around him. I then noticed that that guy was the Korean Pop Star, G-Dragon. I was a bit confused because he had cotton balls in his hand, like it was normal, and continued to try and flatter me with compliments. I rejected him and said that I wasn't interested (I've always been more of a T.O.P girl) and that I had a boyfriend. He then put a grocery bag on his head, and looped the handles around his ears, then started eating the cotton balls while saying, "No worries, I'll win you over eventually." And that's how it ended.

Not sure what these dreams mean, or if they even mean anything. Usually I just have dreams about me being at work due to always being there and probably being somewhat traumatized from working all the time. I haven't had any dreams as of late, and maybe because I haven't been sleeping as well as I should. But I hope you guys had a good laugh while reading about what I dream about!

I don't know what it is lately, but I've been on a winning streak with these Instagram contests, which is a big surprise to myself as well because I hardly ever win anything! I was so happy when Bohindie Stream and Cunning Co announced that I had won their contest because the goodies they were giving away were just too cute! But before I get into the prizes, let me tell you a little bit of the two companies that hosted the giveaway.
Also, just a small disclaimer that this post is not being sponsored by either of the two companies and all opinions and statements said in this post are one hundred percent honest and entirely my own. 
Bohindie Stream

I first came across this bohemian-inspirited jewelry brand when they followed me on Instagram. My usual taste in jewelry is fairly dainty and minimal, but I couldn't help but be fascinated by all the stunning pieces from this line! The company was founded by the oh-so-sweet Briana (aka Bri), who is based in Fort Meyers, Florida. She started handcrafting jewelry back in 2013 when she was 19 and from there, Bohindie Stream started to blossom! To read more about this brand click here.

The piece that I received was their "Sailor Moon" necklace. I immediately fell in love with the piece because of the clear/white crystal, which matched perfectly with the ring that I always wear. Also the name was an added bonus hehe. I usually don't like to wear really long/layered necklaces, so I was extremely happy to see the chain length to be on the shorter side. What I also love is that this piece can be dressed up or worn casually. It adds that extra little sparkle to any outfit!

Cunning Co.
Cunning Co. was founded by the talented artist, Rebecca Cunningham. They are a stationary/illustration gift brand based in Atlanta, Georgia. Her pieces primarily focus on watercolors and cute little sayings that make the perfect gift for all your loved ones. If you want to check out more of her work, click here.

The item I received from Cunning Co. was this adorable watercolor print of an aloe plant and the saying "You had me at aloe." I love anything punny and this was right up my alley. I ended up giving the card to my boyfriend as an anniversary gift. What I also love about Cunning Co and Rebecca's designs are how cute, yet timeless they are. If you're on the market for or just looking for some cute stationary I suggest you give Cunning Co. a quick peep! They make the perfect little addition on your walls, on your desk, or anywhere in your home.  

Again, thank you to these two companies for hosting the giveaway! Still in shock that I won to be honest. I love the items I received and am super happy to discover two amazing woman-powered companies! These two pieces will definitely not be the last and only pieces I have by them, already eyeing a couple things as we speak. Also Mother's Day is coming up and I'm sure you can find a little something-something for the lovely mamas in your life from these two lovely brands ;)
