Make Me Up Mia


I'm excited to see what everyone has been loving the last month, let's see what I've been obsessing over....

::BEAUTY::
Olay Miss Dior

-Olay 2 in 1 Advance Ribbons Soothing Creme Body Wash. I needed a new body wash and I tend to want to always try something new. Holy cow this smells amazing and it's so moisturizing! I will buy this again for sure. 

-Alterna Caviar CC Cream 10 in 1 for hair. I received this in my May Glossybox and I'm hooked. It makes my hair so soft and smells amazing.

-Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Perfume. Thank you sweet hubby, he saw it on my birthday wishlist and scooped it up. He and I both love it! 

Pink Blushes

-Stila Custom Color Blush in Sheer Pink. When I saw Amanda's post about this, I knew it had to be mine. Blush is my thing. Thank you Ulta coupons and birthday money!

-Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose. Another thing that was on my birthday wishlist, after I received a Bergdorf giftcard in my May Glossybox, this is what it went for.

::FOOD::

Quinoa

I've told some of you how I can't get enough quinoa recently, I'm hooked! I've been eating it a few different ways, above are my 2 favorites that I found on Pinterest. (Recipe below the phot0) I enjoyed the Caprese one throughout the week for lunches and Dustin and I loved the Taco Salad Bowls for dinner. Anyone else love Quinoa?

Speaking of Pinterest, do you follow me on Pinterest

Monster Trail Mix

I apologize in advance for sharing this with you. It's good. Too good. If you want a little sweet treat snack, this is so good friends.

Of course, after taking a photo I had to fix a little bowl to snack on. 

Trail Mix

Somebody else wanted in on the action too...


She's been loving these- they're small & soft, perfect for her tiny teeth. I'll just have to trust her… 

Dog Treats


Thanks Pix!

So… I'll see you next Tuesday, I'm off for Mexico early tomorrow morning and will be in complete disconnect mode :) Happy 4th of july to you all, have a wonderful holiday! 

What have you been loving lately?

  13. Okay, now between you and Amanda talking about that Stila blush, I NEED it. I've been wearing the same blushes on repeat, so I need something new in the collection. That rose brick? Wow, just admiring it in my pictures doesn't do it justice compared to the swatch on your hand - beautiful! And, my day is made that you mentioned Target Monster trail mix - you know my love affair with that stuff.

    I hope you have an absolute blast in Mexico, lady. You enjoy the time to unplug and relax - cheers!

  18. I tried quinoa for the first time this week! Though it was a blend mixed with brown rice so I'm not sure that counts- but I am definitely going to look at some of those recipes! And a CC cream for hair?! That sounds pretty amazing! The BB shimmer bricks are so gorgeous- I'd want it out on display at all times :) Hope your trip is amazing!

    xo Always, Abby

  22. Basil, Mozza and Quinoa - my favourite things, I can't believe I never thought of adding quinoa to a caprese salad - genius! That shimmer brick looks so beautiful, do you know if it's limited edition?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful makeup finds!! I used to have that same blush but my stila's just kept falling to the floor and crumbling to a zillion pieces :( so now I wear Nars.

  27. Love this type of post. The blush looks awesome and I love that Pixie contributed. Have a blast in Mexico!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think Pixie has a slight cat gene based on her ability to perch with a laptop so flawlessly hah. I've got to try that caprese salad - we love couscous and quinoa and it'd be great with either I bet! The blush looks so pretty - you're tempting me!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Haha omgsh I am dying over Pixie--she might be the cutest guest contributor ever :)

  39. That BB shimmer palette looks so amazing (and versatile!) I have been obsessed with the Boom Chicka Pop sweet/salty mix, I literally cannot walk past the display without stuffing a bag into my cart :-/

  40. Love, love, love Boom Chicka Pop - the name along gets me every time :) :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just love quinoa. I always put in into my salads. It's a superfood so its super duper healthy. You all must try it, it's gluten free, high in proteins and most importantly, it's delish! :)
