Where have I been?

Hello world!

It’s me, Yesie Marie and I am back again. I know, I know, I’ve been slacking a bit. Let me tell you, I have a good reason for it! Since the last time I posted, I have gotten married and had a beautiful baby girl. Yes, a whole new life now!

I am still majorly focused on beauty, skincare and fitness,  but now I can add wife and mother to my blogging experience! I figured there are a lot of people out there who have questions about weddings and babies, and I am more than happy to HONESTLY help you all out.

Let me tell you, there are A LOT of things that people do not honestly tell you when it comes to wedding planning or being pregnant. Yes, it is all personal experience but upon asking other wives and moms, I have found that they all have experienced similar things to what I have.  The only difference is they experienced it in secret because they believed they were the only ones!

I want to be your online confidant, for all things beauty, skincare, fitness, wife and mom related. I guess you can call me your friendly lifestyle blogger! I am on maternity leave for a bit, so what better time to restart this blog than while my daughter is sleeping on my chest and I am enjoying every second of her existence! And yes, babies really do smell like love, happiness and unicorn dreams, with just a hint of spit up.😍

Please comment and let me know what questions or topics you would like to discuss for future blog entries!! I love a good dialogue! Also, it would really help me out if you can subscribe, like and share my page!!

Until we meet again,

Haute or Hype: Glamglow

So, I know I’m not the only one that searches for “miracle potions” for skincare. I was in desperate search for something that would keep my skin looking refreshed and pore free. I’ve also been obsessed with anti-aging and wrinkle reducing products. So I decided to check and research on google and heard about this so-called miracle mask called Glamglow. I was intrigued, but highly skeptical. It claimed to instantly and visibly reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles and redness. I also read  that this product was created in 2011. How could something so new be so amazing? Wouldn’t you be skeptical? I continued to research this magical mask and found many great reviews on this product. I could not find virtually any bad reviews so I decided to go play with this product.

I went to Sephora (my happy place) to learn more about Glamglow. They scanned the product and it showed me all of the reviews and ingredients. I was still skeptical, especially since the product costs $69, so they gave me a sample. I went home and decided to test this product on my test subject, Philip. Phil has large pores and blackheads on his nose and NOTHING has ever worked on him. I knew he was the perfect candidate for this product and if it worked, I would be amazed.

Phil hates when I “mess” with his nose and reluctantly allowed me to apply the mask on him. Let me tell you, this product looked so gross in packaging but so COOL when on Phil.  Its literally just grey clay like mud. When it dried on Phils nose, you saw EVERY SINGLE PORE that he had on his nose. I could not stop staring! It was so stinking cool! It also allowed Phil to realize that he really did have a lot of pores and needed to take care of his nose. When he rinsed off the mask, let me tell you, it was REDICULOUS! I had NEVER seen Phils nose so clear! I was in shock! Phil was in shock! He demanded I go back to Sephora and buy Glamglow! I did just that.  There are three different types of Glamglow but I bought the Youthmud expholiating mask. I used it on myself and it felt amazing! I have most of my pores on my forehead and when Phil and I washed the mask off, we looked like we were Photoshopped!

This product is definitely a HAUTE product for me! I don’t think Phil and I can live without it. I have never used a skincare product that worked so fast and efficiently on the both of us! I would 100 percent recommend Glamglow to everyone I know, especially if you need a fast fix for a special event! Thats actually what it was created for. Glamglow was created by Glenn and Shannon Dellimore for their actor friends that needed a quick fix before a red carpet event and now its Elle magazines number one beauty obsession. I totally see why because it is now my latest obsession!!

If you have any other product that you are wondering if its HAUTE or HYPE, please let me know in the comments and I’ll check it out!!!

Please also subscribe and share and I’ll return the favor!!!

Until we meet again,
