Yes To Coconut Review: Part 1

My Yes To Coconut products in this review:

  • Ultra Hydrating Paper Mask
  • Lip plumper
  • Face cleansing wipes

Scroll to the bottom for my ratings and extra details!

First, I cleaned my face with the Yes To Carrots facial creme cleansed. (I will order the Yes To Coconut facial cleanser soon!)

Secondly, I wiped any soap residue off with the Yes To Coconut face cleansing wipes.

Thirdly, I scrubbed my lips with the Lip Scrub provided in the packet as show below. (It was so tropical!) 🌴

Fourthly, after a thorough massage, I placed the pink Lip Plumper on my lips that was provided in the bottom half of the packet as show below for 15 minutes. I’m not positive if I placed it on the right way! Haha

Fifthly, I placed the hydrating mask on my face for 10 minutes. Then once the timer was up, I rubbed any left over product on my entire face and neck. Have to stay hydrated!

(I wiped the aftermath of the facial mask over my face and neck, don’t forget this step!)

Lastly, the results!

It actually looks much more fuller than normal!

Sadly, this Botox-Free look only lasted for about an hour. I ate, then the beautiful plump turned into a dry, shriveled salted desert. 🌵 Well, it was so fun while it lasted!

Rating from 1(Don’t recommend) – 10(Highly recommend)

Mask: 10

This mask hydrates my skin like no other, and feels refreshed all day long!

Lip plump: 5

I wish it lasted more than an hour!

Face Wipes: 10

They work so wonderful, and the scent from this line is absolutely amazing.

Other notes: I’ve used this line for awhile now, and it’s my favorite from the Yes To company. The scent reminds me of the beach, the results are better than expected, and the price is so affordable. I highly recommend these products for people with all skin types!

I hope you enjoyed this honest/raw review! More is to come soon. Xoxo

Wet N’ Wild: Matte Liquid Catsuit Review

Company: Wet N’ Wild

Price: $$ out of $$$$

Overall Rating: 5 out of 10

Shades: Rebel Rose and Give Me Mocha

Wand: 3 out of 10

Matte: Definitely Matte

Lasting: 2-4 hours

Transparency: 3 out of 10 (Applies very thin, and semi-see through)

Thickness: 7 out of 10 (Thick in jar, applies thin on lips)

WIBA (Would I Buy Again?): Maybe

Personal Notes:

I had to apply 3-4 layers for it to show well in these pictures which is disappointing. Kylie Cosmetics blows these out of the water, but for Wet N’ Wild’s low price tag this is an “Ok” alternative. I guess once you’ve been spoiled with Kylie’s Liquid lipsticks, you don’t want to go back to many drugstore quality makeup! It also has an odd scent that is chemical-like. Another con is that it’s Made in China (I didn’t notice until I bought/opened it) so with the current standards on Animal testing, low quality, and labor laws I feel bad about purchasing this product. The wand is also very tiny, and rather cheap/not strong.

My duos for the above pictures:

2017 CMA Awards Fashion Review

My first fashion review! You’re welcome celebrities for my honest opinion and first look at your attire of this evenings’ Country Music Award Show! I’ve rated from 1-10 each look, and elaborated below with my opinions.

Here we go!

••

1: I really don’t know what she was thinking. It’s like a swim suit with mod podge flowers covering her upper body. Very unflattering, and the designer needs their fashion license revoked ASAP! However, your new song makes up for it, so I’ll give you a 10 on your artistry.

6: Too big on her. It appears to be three sizes too large, and is missing a golden belt of some sort, Gucci belt maybe?

9: Absolutely fabulous. However, this is a formal awards show and needs some slight sewing up to be done in the cleavage area by an inch. Then it would be perfect!

10. Mrs. Decker couldn’t be any hotter! You go girl! (And baby!)

••

10: Stunning in sequin! Compliments her tats and hair nicely!

3: This isn’t the Carnival Cruise Line! 🚢 Something like Reba’s would have made you pop!

6: Looks weird in the stomach area, should have been continue/closed with the fabric. Beautiful dress though!

6: Reba, I feel the shoulder area could have been thinner, to accent your curves nicely without being distracted from the wideness of the shoulder fabric and accents. Gorgeous color though with your hair!

<

3: This is a formal event, so this looks very un-put together. Nice heels, and the saying on a dress rather than a tank top would have been much more appealing than boots.

10: Formal ✅ Hot ✅ Perfect color ✅✅

6: Belt should have been white or nonexistent. Love you though Miranda!

6: Very child-like with the patterns, solid color would have been perfect.

••

7: No more poof, and needs to be cut off at the elbows.

7: Needed thin spaghetti straps to sexy it up more.

3: What is this?

6: I can see through the initial dress cutoff, so it should have been solid not see through.

••

7: Faith.. sister… please no arm poof! Other than that, the dress is sexy. Xoxo

7: Again, the cut off on the sides is very weird to the eyes. Plus, the blue should have been Navy and not so shiny.

3: I absolutely adore Pink and her performances, but this makes you look so wrong. A flattering dress like Carrie’s would have been perfect for you. In Black of course! Xoxo

3: This looks like a prom dress.

••

4: Too dull. Something bright would have made you pop!

4: Please button up some more Sir, chest hair is a no-go unless you’re the classic Tom Selleck!

9: Very nice, but the black inside throws me off a bit.

4: Maranda’s boo… shave please! The accent on the suit is gorgeous though, but the shirt should have been light blue to match your girl!

That’s it for now! Until next time in the fashion world, I’ll see yah trend. 😉

Dear Celebrities,

Dear Celebrities,

I have had the opportunity to communicate and interact with several “big-time” celebrities of Hollywood. One thing I have discovered along my path, is that if a person is genuinely bad prior to their fame, all it makes them now is a bad person with notoriety and fortune. Unless they’ve had a change of heart of course!

I know I’m a woman, but that doesn’t give you the right to look at me as a sex object, or an object period.

I may not be famous yet, but one day I hope to not only shed love, but give life to the lifeless through my charity, art, and wisdom (Yeshe).

However, the difference between myself being famous versus your current fame, is my heart and intentions. Use your fame for good, to make a wonderful change in this world, not constant selfish endeavors.

I doubt the individuals whom i’m referring to are currently reading this article, but if you happen to enjoy following up with my online activities (many of you still do), I hope to bring you a wake up call.

You may not remember being an average joe, but many of you once were. You may not realize what it took to get you to the “top”, but sacrifices were made. Your families may be completely entrapped with your fame, that they too have lost all sense of humility. One thing that makes me wonder, is where along the way did you grasp this “better than the world” mindset, arrogance, and complete lack of love?

I’m not a perfect woman, but I do the best I can. When I’m out of alignment, my loved ones help lead me back onto the path of love and self-realization.

Maybe there is nobody in your life that has done that for you, but if there’s anything I can do, it would be to encourage you to lead yourself back onto the path of humility.

Fame is but a fleeting feather, flying with the wind to a land of the unknown. Some people never get their feather back, others have it under their careful watch, but lose all sense of self.

Maybe the reason for your ill, inappropriate, and arrogant behavior towards me is rooted in some deep-seated bitterness towards women, powerful women, or the mere fact that you think you know who I am, which places you above me. The humorous thing is, that as a woman I don’t tolerate bad behavior, I enjoy being powerful and impactful, but the funniest thing of all is that you haven’t the slightest clue who I am. Take a moment today to reevaluate your behavior, impact on the world, and come down from your high tower to discover goodness in the universe.

The greatest achievement is selflessness.

The greatest worth is self-mastery.

The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.

The greatest precept is continual awareness.

The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.

The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.

The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.

The greatest generosity is non-attachment.

The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.

The greatest patience is humility.

The greatest effort is not concerned with results.

The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.

The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.
Atisha

It’s about time for a change in the world, it can start with YOU.

Sincerely,

Faith Mantovani

This was not only a letter to the celebrity men out there who feel like they can intimidate women without consequences, belittle us, and hide behind their fame like some sort of shield, but to self-realization. Find time for Antar mouna. (inner stillness & thought observation)

Take time everyday to self-reflect on ones own behavior, and if you find nothing wrong then maybe there is something out of place that needs to be helped. Women, stay strong. Never allow anyone to intimidate, threaten, or scare you into thinking less of yourself at any moment in time. xoxo

Contact a recommended psychiatrist, therapist, yoga instructor, and/or spiritual leader to help you get back onto the right path.

Blessings

Life is too short to be a curse, become a blessing with your words, actions, and intentions. Spread love starting today.
