Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks


The Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks! 

I am a huge Bite Beauty Lipstick fan. They currently make some of my favorite lipsticks.  So, when I heard about their new line I was pretty excited. 


The Amuse Bouche Line has over 40 lipstick colors to choose from.   

In my mind, I felt as though I had to order them as soon as they were available on Sephora.com! They were obviously going to sell out! At least that's what I told myself.  I did not want to miss my opportunity.  


Here's a video review I posted on my YouTube Channel: 


I narrowed my selection down to six shades (Left to Right) : Soufflé , Sugarcane, Meringue, Honeycomb, Tannin 



Soufflé 
Soufflé is extreme bubble gum pink.  I'm going to try and make this color work, but I think it would have been more my style 5+ years ago.

Meringue 
I feel as though this will be a great everyday color.

Honeycomb
This is a brown nude.  I personally prefer my nudes to have a little pink in them, but it was a lovely color.

Some items I mentioned in the video. 


The Fall Favorites Tag Questions -

Favorite Candle :

Sydney Hale Clementine & Clove Candle

I mentioned in the video that I really don't light candles.  I like the idea of them, but it just isn't something I really do.  So, for the sake of this blogpost I decided to light the one I chose.  It looks pretty, but it really doesn't have much of a scent.  

Favorite Lip Color :

Bite Beauty Lipsticks in Caramel & Cava
I love the Bite Beauty Lipsticks. They are pretty amazing.  They are very soft though, so they may warp if you leave them in your car like I have.  

Favorite Drink :  Apple Cider & Whiskey.  I think I'll make another post about this in the next day or so.

Favorite Blush :

Tom Ford Blush in Flush

Favorite Clothing Item :  Anything Fitted, Tight & Black.   I go more into depth about this in the video.  

Favorite Fall Movie : Hocus Pocus
Favorite Fall TV Show : I couldn't really decide. I mentioned several that I watch.  
Favorite Thanksgiving Food : Sweet Potatoes & Green Beans
Favorite Halloween Costume : Conservative Slutty

How to : Improve Pool Deck | Behr Concrete Stain

Before & After 

We recently purchased a new home.  It has a ton of great features, but it needs a bit of work.  The first task we decided to tackle was the pool and pool deck. 


The pool prior to any change.  


The first thing we did was drive down to the pool supply store and purchase a ton of chlorine and other pool cleaning supplies.  I have no idea how much my husband put in the pool, but it made a huge difference almost immediately.  

My husband took a deck broom and scrubbed the pool deck with chlorine.   This cleaned the deck, but also prepared it for the concrete stain.

The cleaned pool deck.  

My Father-in-law already owned the Behr Concrete Stain in the color Fresh Cement.  It's what he uses on his pool deck.  He brought what he had over for us to test out.  

Although, it was a huge improvement it wasn't exactly what I had in mind (I wanted white).   The stain soaked up in the patio and required quite a few coats.

We ended up going to Home Depot to purchase 5 Gallons of the concrete stain along with a fluffier roller brush (to soak up the stain better). 

Standing on the Behr Concrete Stain in Fresh Cement.

We chose the Behr Concrete Stain in Ultra Pure White 6050.  I still took a booklet home to make sure that I made the right decision.  I did!


And two liberal coats later we had a very white pool deck! I don't think it could have turned out any better.

We still have a lot to do on our house and I would love to take you all on the journey with us!

If you have any questions about the Behr Concrete Stain feel free to comment below.  It was a very easy product to use and it made a huge improvement.  

Thanks for checking this post out!
