What I Craft With: Products that I use for my Etsy Shop

Hello and welcome back! For the past few month, I have been creating custom tumblers and selling them! I have been obsessed and also have been purchasing a ton of supplies. Today I want to share all of the products that I use daily for my Etsy Shop.

The main tool that I use is my Cricut Explore Air 2 in Emerald. This machine is badass and cuts like no other. The system comes with different templets that make it easy when creating a project. Right now the Cricut Explore Air 2 is on sale if you have really been wanting to get your hands on it! You can find the link here. I use mine everyday and let me tell you, I have made my money back on this machine, plus more.

My next tools that I use daily are the Nicapa basic tool set. They help so much when weeding vinyl, scrapping card stock from my mats, and applying vinyl to cups.

Another essential for a vinyl based craft is transfer tape. I picked up a large roll from Amazon and so far it’s the best that I have tried.

I can’t forget to mention scissors! I use them for just about everything, cutting the transfer tape, cutting ribbon, and the other obvious reasons for owning a pair of scissors. You can check out these good ones here.

They vinyl that I use I also purchased from Amazon. I use a holographic vinyl and a regular vinyl. The matte colored vinyl is a little bit harder to weed, but still turns out gorgeous.

( Holographic Vinyl, Regular Vinyl )

And there you have it people! Those are my everyday, basic tools. I just added a new piece to my collection, so I’ll have to update you in a blog post very soon! I hope that you enjoyed.

Let me know which tools that you can’t live without, I would love to try them.

Liberex Makeup Brush Cleaner Review

Another day, another blog post! Today I have a review for you, all about the Liberex Electrical Makeup Brush Cleaner. I received this product a little while ago and tested it out for the first time today! 

Here is how she looks! Sleek, not too bulky, and comfortable to hold.
It includes:
electrical brush cleaner
-charger
-brush cleaner stand
-makeup brush holder attachments
bowl for the water

So if you have never heard of or seen an electrical makeup brush cleaner, I’ll give you a little run down. It is an excellent, small device that will spin your makeup brushes in a bowl of water, clean them for you, as well as air-drying them.

Can I just say, this product does wonders! If you are someone that has a lot of brushes like myself, then it probably takes you a while to hand wash them. With this device, it cuts my brush cleaning time in half! It was easy to figure out, very compact, and easy to travel with. Can I say this product does wonders! If you are someone that has a lot of brushes like myself, then it probably takes you a while to hand wash them. With this device, it cuts my brush cleaning time in half! It was easy to figure out, very compact, and easy to take on the road.

I love the fact that I can see how dirty the water gets; I can see all of the makeup coming out of my brush. It’s so satisfying to know that my brushes are getting a deep clean.

There are a variety of attachments, which I love because not all makeup brushes are the same size. I also like that I know when the device is ready for use, it will flash red when it is charging and turn blue when it’s fully charged.

Overall I believe that this product retails for $26 and is worth every penny. I received my cleaner from Amazon, and I will leave the link for you down below!

Thank you so much for reading! I look forward to posting for you soon.

How To Get A Good Nights Rest

Lately, I have been all about my sleep; I love to get a good night’s rest so that I can have a productive next day. In today’s post, I’m sharing how I get a good nights sleep and what helps to sleep better.

Shower Time

STEP 1: I am a night time shower person. I love to take a shower to wash off everything from that day; it’s soothing to me. I love to take my time in the shower as well; I will play some music, listen to some music, or even do a little meditation.

STEP 2: After the shower, it’s skincare time! I wash my face, use a toner, eye cream, moisturize, and apply lip balm. I love how clean my skin feels once I am all done.

STEP 3: Time to hydrate, I will have some water before bed. I find that it is relaxing.

STEP 4: If I am in the mood, I will read a book, it helps me to get a little sleepier.

STEP 5: I am obsessed with this app that I found; it’s called Headspace. It is an app that helps with meditation, but it also tells stories and makes soothing sounds. I love to listen to the Midnight Launderette, there are washer and dryer sounds in the background, and the guy who tells the story has a very soothing voice.

STEP 6: After I listen to a few minutes of Headspace, I am usually out like a light!

I hope that you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments what helps you get a better nights rest.

Smile with cariPRO Electronic Toothbrush

If you know me at all, then you know that my smile means the WORLD to me. I have always been obsessed with how white and clean my teeth are. If you don’t believe me, just ask my Aunt Cindy, she’ll tell you.

With that being said, I have some very exciting news for you. Smile Brilliant has recently launched their cariPRo Electric Toothbrush!

They have been so kind and have sent it to me to try out and share my thoughts with you.

I would first like to say, if you have never used an electronic toothbrush before, then you are missing out, they are a game changer. My teeth feel so much cleaner and whiter since I started using the cariPRO. I strongly believe that this toothbrush gets the job done.

There are 5 different settings to choose from, I personally love the white setting. I feel like it not only cleans my teeth, but it helps prevent stains from my coffee or tea.

Clean, White, Massage, Gum Care, Sensitive

The set that I received came with the Ultrasonic toothbrush, two brush heads, and a charger.

5 Goals for Instagram

I have been on Instagram for over four years now. In that time, my style and interest have shifted dramatically. Today I am sitting down to let you in on my new goals for Instagram. These are goals that I believe will help to grow and inspire those that follow along with my life.

  1. I like to constantly set new goals for myself to see what I can achieve. As of right now, my follower count is at 3,417. My number one goal is to get my follower count to 5K. Yes, I do understand that my follower number isn’t what matters the most, but it feels good to know that my Instagram is growing.
  2. My second goal is to try something new. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by the lack of time that I already have, so I don’t always get to try different things. I am going to make it a priority to go visit new places and have photoshoots at times that I typically wouldn’t.
  3. Another Instagram goal of mine is to post on my story at least once a day. I know that people are looking at stories more now than they are posts on the grid.
  4. Becoming more steady with posting. Sometimes, as I said before, time slips away from me. Then before I know it, it has been 4 days since the last time that I shared anything with you. I’m going to push myself to become more consistent with everything on Instagram. Taking photos, posting, and interacting with more people and brands.
  5. My final goal for Instagram that I’m going to share with you; is to become more inspired and roll with it. Sometimes I forget to just take a minute for myself and live in the moment. The only way that my Instagram can thrive, is if I also thrive.

To wrap up this post, I just want to thank you for reading along and taking a look into my Instagram goals. I encourage you to sit down and write 5 of your own goals for whatever you would like to achieve. I am going to turn this into a series and call it my 5 Series. I know, typical, but whatever works.

If you are not already, make sure that you are following along on my Instagram. Send me a message and let me know that you came from the blog. I love meeting and chatting with new people.
