A Flyboy, A Wookie, and the Fastest Hunk 'O' Junk in the Galaxy

So y'all know I love Star Wars.
It's in my blood man!
 
 The classic characters have always kept me interested and
I've grown up knowing them.
So when Disney announced they were doing
Solo: An Origin Story
 
I cringed.
 
Guys I love Disney, I love Star Wars.
But this for some reason just felt wrong to do.
 
 
 
And as time went on and I saw trailers or promos for the movie,
I still didn't get excited.
 
 
Then I saw it.
 

 
Now, for me, this wasn't as good as Rogue One.
I liked it though.
I was pleasantly surprised at how much I did like it!
 
It's got some humor that's a bit off color so might not want to take
younger star pilots to see it.
BUT if they can handle Guardians of the Galaxy,
they can handle this movie as well.
 
The cast did an amazing job portraying the characters
as we already know and love them
while still being able to put their own spin on them.
Donald Glover is pretty spot on with Lando
and Alden Ehrenreich as Han is truly fun to watch.
 
I left the theater happy to have seen how my favorite
"scruffy-lookin nerfherder" started out 
before he meets Luke and Obi Wan.
  I look forward to a few more of these stories!

Mom Beauty Hacks (Plus A Giveaway!)

So it's well-known around these parts that I am not a beauty expert.
I mean I barely started wearing makeup at all just last year!
But since beginning this
"beauty journey" if you will,
I have found a few things that I think are "Mom Hacks"!
 
First,
Maskcara makeup
 
 
 And no, I actually don't sell it hahaha
so this is not a self plug or anything!
I just happen to really love the product and I think it's
one of the best hacks out there.
It's essentially fool-proof and has a guide to help you.
Plus it lasts forever as long as you apply it correctly and don't overdo your look.
The point of Maskcara is to enhance your natural beauty,
not mask it ;)
(Get it, get it??)
 
Second,
Maybelline Matte Ink Lip Colors
 
 
 Influenster introduced me to these magic tubes of color
and I love them soooooo much!
They stay on through food, drink, sweat (mostly, there is a limit but it takes a lot!),
AND you can put chapstick over it if you feel that they're getting dry
(mine rarely do for reference) 
 
Third,
Smille Brilliant Teeth Whitening
 


 
Remember this post?
Well seriously,
its sooooo easy and fast to whiten your teeth!
I can grab my favorite book,
or whiten while I do laundry, dishes, cleaning.
I've done it all while whitening my teeth hahaha
My kids always know when I'm doing it too
because I sounds funny with my "retainers" in!
 
Fourth,
Micellar water!
 
 
 This makeup remover stuff is magical!
I went through a bunch of different ones before I finally 
found this one and it made my skin so soft!
Plus it takes everything off with minimal effort
and no scrubbing which is awesome.
I personally love the Garnier brand but I think most of them are super similar ;) 
 
And because I love you so much,
Smile Brilliant is giving away another teeth whitening kit!!!
