Friday Favorites No. 6

May 1, 2021

Good morning all. I know I know. Another name change? Yes. But don't worry. I found my niche and this name is what is sticking. After brainstorming and watching my Instagram take off - it was time to match my content with a bombdotcom name. And It's That Glow was born. Because after all, it is that glow. A lot of people at work have been saying that to me lately. And it got me thinking. So a big shout out to my co-workers for the idea.

Speaking of co-workers... we have this wall up beside the mail room called the "shout out board". And it's a little anonymous board to write inspiring notes to your co-workers. I walked by yesterday delivering mail and I caught my name out of the corner of my eye. It had me in tears.



I deal with a lot in my position. It is a very stressful job working in a high school. Without going into specifics (because it's not necessary) and you are a parent yourself (or you have friends that are parents) then you know exactly how stressful it can be. Put it this way, as soon as I get off work and pick up my daughter, I go home, kick off my shoes and basically crash for a few hours before I have to get up and take care of my family. I am THAT tired. But that message to me from somebody in the school really made my day. I needed those words of encouragement.



I was using Function of Beauty haircare for awhile. It smelled wonderful and it is quite popular. But the perfume scent was overpowering and it was tearing up my scalp. I have a very sensitive scalp. I also have very fine, limp hair. So when I discovered Monday Haircare all over Instagram I had to try it. Let me tell you... it has done wonders for my hair. The smell is very faint and it has created so much volume in my hair. Even my husband has seen a difference. The conditioner makes my hair so soft and doesn't weigh it down.



Glossier finally dropped another facial cleanser. As soon as they posted about it, I bought it as quickly as possible. Because when they release new items - they sell out FAST. They're about to drop a new lipstick called ULTRA LIP sometime this month. I signed up for the notification when it's available. I am waiting for that bronzer I keep hearing about.

About their cleanser though... it goes perfectly on days when I need a little more intense wash after using Milk Jelly to remove my makeup and other impurities my face collected throughout the day. This stuff is amazing to say the least. It comes in a glass bottle and it retails at only $20! That is not bad at all! And the best part? It does not dry out your face! It's gentle yet strong enough to really deep clean.



I finally FINALLY got some Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream. This stuff smells amazing. I literally smell like pistachio pudding. I have noticed my skin is tighter and more on the glowier side. My husband hugs me extra because I smell so good.



I recently partnered with Bubble. What is it you ask? It's TEEN skincare! Sure it's not made for my skin but my daughter is really into skincare just as much as me and she has been eyeballing this stuff for quite some time. So I reached out and now I am a Bubble Ambassador. They sent me this neat little gift for my daughter. If you have a teen or a young one that is old enough to start taking care of their skin, then you need this stuff! It's not too harsh for their sensitive skin. She was using my stuff for awhile and I believe it's just too harsh for her baby smooth skin.

I was growing tired of Dunkins coffees. I needed something different. More bougie I guess you could say. And I discovered in their menu while browsing the app this drink. It is the iced chocolate almondmilk shaken espresso. I added some vanilla sweet cream cold foam. It has 3 shots of espresso in it. Man oh man let me tell you I was bouncing off the walls all day yesterday while at work. But unfortunately it made me crash by 1:30. That's the bad part about this. But whatever man! IT TASTES SO GOOD! I am going to start trying all of their iced coffees. I am a little burnt out on the pink drink and plain iced coffee doesn't do it for me. I need flavors and frothy things floating around my drink. It makes me happy.

And that's it! Now go enjoy your weekend!

  1. I noticed that you changed your name on ig. I knew right away that it was you though. lol. Working & having a family must be so hard. I'm a stay at home Mom, but I have a few chronic illnesses, so I can't work. I feel like being a homemaker/Mom is a tiring job too. Not as much as going into work though.

    1. I do that all the time. When my content starts to take a turn and my name doesn't match, my OCD kicks in and I HAVE to change it. I won't change it anymore now because I love my new name. It wasn't being used ANYWHERE so I was like SCORE!!! But it's staying LOL

      I am so sorry about your illnesses. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. I hope things are getting better at least. Being a stay at home mommy is just as exhausting as working in an office or store. Pssshhht it's probably MORE exhausting because you have to chase kiddos and cook and clean and pretty much do it all. I have been there. But now that my kids are in school (with one being an adult and living in another state) I can't sit at home and watch time tick away. Plus I have a spending problem LOL

    1. Glossier should seriously consider hiring me! LOL! This cleanser is by far, THE best cleanser I have EVER used! I saw a lot of reviews stating it burned their face or left it red and irritated. But if you knowingly have very sensitive dry skin then they should know better to not use a product like that. I have sensitive skin yes BUT I can still use products like this only if I don't overdo it and I moisturize extra like crazy. Plus I don't mix other exfoliates with it. I swear I feel as if some skincare users don't do their homework and study and read about products. Plus... SPOT TEST! Ya know?

      This shampoo/conditioner is amazing. But I have noticed I have more flakes on my scalp. I might have to just deal with the fact I have limp hair and stick with shampoos that are made for sensitive scalp that are dry and flakey. Which they have!

  5. I LOVE the Bum Bum cream and really need to buy more. It smells heavenly. I will look into that shampoo and conditioner. I love switching mine up between two kinds to help my hair out. I love that note. It is something I need to incorporate at my work especially with going back full time.
