Favorite Powder Foundation and Bronzer

Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
Rimmel London Natural Bronzer
I know these aren't anything new they have been out for a while but they are still my favorite and even tho I have different options I always grab these first for my everyday makeup, the pressed powder is wonderful, I get a very oily t-zone and living in South California doesn't help, So I always need shine control and this pressed powder is perfect, it stays on all day and doesn't make your face look cakey. The bronzer is my favorite thing in the world I have a lot of bronzers and full face palettes but this is my everyday go to bronzer, the color is perfect and it really makes you look like a bronzed goddess! The bronzer is very matte and that's something I love because the bronzers with shine are just too much I rather get my shine from a highlighter or a blush.
Sorry this post is so short I will be posting a favorites and I do have some exciting things coming up!
Leave a comment below telling me which bronzer or pressed powder you're loving, I always want to try new items and discover new things :)

First GRAZE Box!

Today I got something very exciting in the mail! My very first Graze box I have been on a subscription box craze lately just trying out all the different options from beauty to food I've been ordering s ton of subscription boxes. But this box is very special for me because I have been waiting for it for so long when I first heard about it they were just starting out so not everyone could join you had to be invited in order to get one and I requested an invite but I dint get it for a while so I had completely forgot about it. But a lot of time has passed since then and I know they have been available to the public for a while now but I've just been kind of busy (as you can tell by the lack of posts on my page lol). But I have one now!

This is what I got in my graze box.
When you order your box you have the opportunity to choose your dietary needs if you want gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, its very customizable and sure easy to discard things that you don't want in your box so you always make sure you are getting things that are safe for your dietary and allergy needs. I don't have a lot of dietary restrictions but I am very picky, I did want to give my self the opportunity to kind of branch out and try new things so I didn't discard anything I just let it be a surprise and I wasn't disappointed.
(130 calories)
Hot Cross Yum: This is the first thing I tried from the box and it was by far the best I loved it, the flavors are so nice and rich, you can really taste the orange raisins and the cinnamon. The little sponge pieces are so good I thought they would be like little pieces of cake but they were a bit hard they were like mini nilla wafers except orange flavor instead of vanilla. The cinnamon honey almonds are amazing they remind me or the holidays, this is a perfect snack for the fall and winter it just makes me feel nice and cozy I hope I get this in my box again.
(150 calories)
Smoky bbq corn: Out of this whole box this is the only thing I didn't like, I'm not a huge fan of smoky bbq flavors unless its bbq sauce of course! Not to mention the corn is just too crunchy and having braces doesn't help it was impossible for me to even chew them but that's not their fault so I cant blame them for that. The combination of corn and cashews was just too weird I feel like if it was just corn it could be somewhat decent like a healthy version of corn nuts, don't get me wrong I love cashews I just didn't like the weird bbq flavor. I clicked trash for this one so I wont get it again but who knows maybe ill give it another try again in the future. 
(150 calories)
Wholegrain Banana Caramel Dippers: These were delicious I loved the caramel sauce the banana shortbread pieces were a little too dry and crummy alone but with the dip they are delicious I have no complaints about this I loved it.
(140 calories)
Morning energizer: this was delicious its an amazing mix of fruits and walnut its a perfect little snack. The flavors really mix well together!
Well that's it for my first graze box I hope this encourages you to try out the box and remember if you have certain dietary needs or just things you don't want to have In your box you can fully customize it and make it just the way you want it. If you do order the box of if you are already subscribed to it I would love to hear your opinion on it.
For 2 free boxes you can use the code : MAGALI5DB you will get you first and 5th box completely free!
I hope you guys have a nice day and remember to look for the simple things in life that make you happy.

Autumn Candles

Nothing says autumn like scented candles! I love candles I put them all over the house and make everything smell great and they are perfect for setting the mood I mean who doesn't want to just get nice and cozy in a great smelling room. I cant even walk into bath and body works without picking up some candles they have the best scents just saying :)
Bath & Body Works candle in Autumn
What says Autumn more than a candle that's Autumn scented? ..... nothing! This candle smells so nice and fresh, kind of like freshly washed clothes or just like fresh air its great for any room and its very subtle it doesn't overpower the room.
Bath & Body Works candle in Farmstand Apple
This is a stronger scented candle and it has kind of a citrus type of smell it smells great and just fills the room with a scent that just makes you hungry for apple pie. This candle is perfect for the fall but you can easily use it all year long because of the fruity fresh smell.
Bath & Body Works candle in Heirloom Pear
I saved the best for last! This candle is my favorite Bath & Body Works candle its amazing! Im really sad they don have them all year round and when I went the store this was the last one in stock so im guessing a lot of people agree that its one of the best candles. It smells delicious, very fruity yet very fresh and light its a scent that just fills your house and its a very natural scent it doesn't smell like gross air freshener.
I hope this post inspires you to go out and get some candles for your house this fall.
With love,

Shirts with collars

(pictures are from

I'm sure that many of you are aware the collared shirt trend is very popular, Stores like Forever 21, H&M, Top Shop and many many more are just flooded with these shirts.
But I'm not complaining! I absolutely love this style, I feel like it adds a touch of elegance yet still keeps it casual and fun. My personal favorites are the ones with gems or small items like spikes and tiny animals on them, also the ones with the sailor collars, I'm not a huge fan of the plain collars unless the shirt has a nice pattern or a more whimsical design.

You can style these shirts with some lose satin shorts or some harem pants for a more dressed up look, Or with some jeans for a more casual look.

Hope you all have a great weekend and let me know how you like to style your collared shirts

Completely Bare Hair Removal Review

177 173
I will always prefer waxing instead of plucking, I mean who wants to hurt multiple times and take longer when it can be fast and easy?
The only problem with waxing is that I have very sensitive skin so it irritates my skin sometimes, I'm always looking for new products that are natural and good for your skin.
This product is really great and it makes your skin so nice, I also find that it doesn't hurt as much as other waxes do.
179 181The wax is super easy to use just warm up and apply, it comes in a small pot and all you need to do is microwave it.
The heating process is fast but depending on your microwave you may need to heat it up more or less.
It only took me 3 minutes to warm mine up.
Then you just apply and wait about 30 seconds for it to harden up and simply peel it off really fast, you don't need any wax strips or special cloth, Which I love because I'm always running out of those before I even run out of wax.

The only thing I don't love about this wax is that it gets hard pretty fast so you have to heat it up a little every 10 or so minutes, but that's a very small price to pay for great wax!

 The kit comes with these wipes that you can use to clean up any excess wax from your face or area you waxed.
They smell like lavender and they have special oils.
I do wish the kit came with a few more but overall the kit is really great.  

This kit was only $13 and I bought it at CVS, you can use it multiple times and for almost any surface.
This brand also has other products for hair removal.

I strongly suggest it!

If you know or use any other products for hair removal that you really love let me know, Or if you've tried this product let me know how you liked it.

Hope you all have a wonderful day :)

Valentines ♥

110 102 This year instead of waiting around for someone special to give me a gift i decided to just buy lots of gifts for my friends and family, because giving is better than receiving right?
Well it turns out that a lot of us had the same motto this year because we all ended up buying our friends and family gifts, they were small gifts nothing too fancy but its the thought that counts.
So we all had a wonderful dinner and opened our gifts, it was so special and just a good time.
I'm glad that this valentines day turned out the way it did and I wouldn't change it for the world.

I hope you all had a wonderful day and spent it with the people you love.
