San Diego County Fair


The San Diego County Fair is back again this year until July 4th. This years theme is “how sweet it is” by involving lots of candy and sweets through out the fair. I learned lots of different facts learned through out the fact regarding different candies. Lots of vintage candy inspiration everywhere. Inspiration regarding sweets and candies come from classics like Willy Wonka, I Love Lucy, Candy Land and much more.

 Like a kid at the candy store wishing that there were sweets this big.  I love the nostalgic candy wrapping. Those vintage tins are cute. Can we talk about how candy use to cost cents. I could have a whole candy factory by now.    Yum Yum Jelly Bellys. There is even an interactive part where you can taste some delicious jelly bellys.

Something that we did for the first time this year was finding the speakeasy. A speakeasy is a hidden bar. In order to find this hidden location ask any bar at the fair and they will tell you the secret password to get in. Once inside you will be able to get some candy inspired cocktails. One of the best parts are the views to the fair. It is also a comfortable place to hang out at. This was a first for us but I know the speakeasy has been at the fair before. It is a bar so you do have to be 21 and up to enjoy it.

Lots of things to check out including all the rides and games. There is also lots of new addition to the food and many unicorn inspired items. As always there is lots of new things to check out at the San Diego County Fair each year. Be sure to check it out before it closes.

 

Yardley Soap

IMG_9266This weekend I got to try out Yardley Soap to get some “me time” with these bath bars. The three scents I received was english lavender, oatmeal & almond and the new creamy coconut. I do not really do baths on a daily but I used it in the shower as bar soap. The soap was scented but not overpowering. The Yardley Soap went on smoother than other soap bars that I have tried in the past. The bars also created a nice lather and made me feel clean. These bar are perfect because you can get a bit of relaxation time with out having to spend a lot. With each bar being under $2 you get an awesome clean with out going over budget. The bars are available nationwide at most mass, drug and food stores. If your interested in trying their newest scent the creamy coconut it is available at most Walmart and Walgreen stores.

Soap was sent for free to review but all opinions are my own.

New Neutrogena Face Masks

IMG_8925Neutrogena just came out with brand new mask collection. I got to try out three out of five of the new hydrogel and mask shots. I have tried their soaps and facial wash before in the past but this was my first time trying out masks from this brand. I think these are the first single use mask for the brand. I have very sensitive skin and none of these irritated my skin. I love skin care so I was excited to try these out.

Deep Clean Purifying 100% Hydrogel Mask

This mask contains seaweed extract and it is suppose to contain a bottles worth of serum. I am glad it does not smell fishy like sea weed but instead smells like aloe vera. The mask comes in two pieces on for the top and the bottom of your face. Being in two pieces makes it easy to put on and more customizable to your face shape. This mask is very different from the other mask I have tried before in terms of texture. I have only used sheet masks and they tend to feel a bit itchy when applied. This is a gel mask which feels very cool and comfortable while on the face. It leaves the face feeling hydrated.

Deep Clean Purifying Wash-off Clay Mask

This mask comes in single use shot container. There is honestly a lot you could use this twice. It contains two types of mineral clay. The smell to this was similar to the other one with a light scent of aloe vera. The product is thicker than other face masks that I have used in the past. The color is a very light mint. As soon as you put it on you can feel it working and tingling all over your face. After 15 minutes you can wash it off. Honestly this was my favorite one and it left my face feeling so soft and clean.

Radiant Boost Brightening 100% Hydrogel Mask

Similar to the deep clean purifying 100% hydrogel mask in texture and in smell. This one feels a bit warmer on the face.
