2017 in Review | The Best and the Worst

Beauty, Lifestyle, HealthMaría Elena RodríguezComment
best buys of 2017

This year was far from normal to say the least. From traveling to Europe for the first time, posting consistently once a week and surviving a devastating natural disaster. 2017 was intense, but it was all that I needed to check my priorities. 

I made some big lifestyle changes and some huge decisions along the way. It was transformative to say the least, but I couldn't be happier for the outcome. So here are the highs and lows that helped me get there:

Beauty

Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip Collection

As many of the products I discover, I discovered this one out of a whim. I always like using a nourishing lip balm after my nighttime skincare routine and before I fall asleep and this one has been perfect. It's a little expensive, but it's worth the splurge since a little bit goes a long way. 

You can read my initial review here.

OLEHENRIKSEN Transforming Walnut Scrub

You all know my love for Ole Henriksen, but first thing first: This scrub STINKS! But boy does it work. If you can pass through the smell and are diligent about using this product at least once a week you will see the amazing results. 

You can read my initial review here.

tarte Tarteist™ Lash Paint Mascara

I have the most stubborn eyelashes. They are the hardest to curl and give some volume. But this mascara is doing her part on my lashes. Plus, it's buildable and perfect for those days when you want to give your makeup look that extra sultriness. 

You can read my initial review here.

Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask

This is an effective but expensive mask. It smells great and it feels really luxurious. Plus, you will see the results right away. I've been using this mask before special occasions or if my skin is looking a little dull.

I talk more about this product here

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Just as I suspected, this concealer quickly gained holy grail status. The hype is real guys! If you suffer of dark circles like I do, this concealer will change your life. Just keep in mind that it's super full coverage, which is why I only use it for special occasions. For my every day I've been using the Wet N' Wild Photo Focus Concealer

You can read my initial review here.

Glossier Serums

glossier serums

I started using these serums after my sister raved about them so much. You all know my love for the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, but since I've been leaning more towards more natural and less ingredients skincare I thought it was time to give these a try. 

These are definetely lighter than I thought and from my experience, you will start to see results after a week or so. The only downside is that it's 0.5 oz and for the price and for the price and daily usage, I don't think it's appropriate. Wishing they come out with a full 1oz and more cost effective packaging! 

Grab Glossier's The Supper Pack Serums here

 

Hello, World!

glossier perfume

If you follow me on Instagram you know I went to the Glossier Showroom in Chelsey, NYC this past November. I had no idea I would love this perfume, but once I smelled it, I knew it had to be mine. Some of you know that I've been really into warm and spicy scents this year and that is exactly what this smells like. But it's not basic at all. Am I explaining myself? Describing scents is so hard!

Anyways... you can grab the Glossier You Perfume here

 

All of the Nirvana Perfumes

Speaking about warm and spicy perfumes, Nirvana by Elizabeth and James stole my heart this year. From their deliciously sexy Nirvana Bourbon perfume to their new Nirvana Amethyst perfect for the holidays. If you want to captivate someone, try one of these perfumes. 

Grab a trio of Nirvana by Elizabeth and James Perfumes here

 

Rose Water Sprays

Notice that I wrote "sprays" not "spray"? That's because I don't care about the brand. I just love spraying rose water spray in my face. Does it make my skin any different? No. Does it make me feel like a queen? Absolutely! It feels like an added luxury to my skincare regimen.

Grab Mario Badescu's Rose Water Spray here

 

Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

This is the only palette I've been using. I am not big on using eyeshadow, but when I do, I like some high quality, super blendable and long wearing shadows. The shades I love the most from this palette are Summer Yum and Luscious. Peaches 'N Cream is perfect for blending out at the end.

Lifestyle

Filofax

I come and go with planners and I have used dozens of them over the years. Even two at once. But I've come to realize that the best system for me is one where I can keep all my to-do's, calendar and notes in one place. Hence, the Filofax system. Again, I don't mind paying a little extra for effectiveness and this system lets me customize my pages and add or edit whatever I want throughout the year. This helped me stay on track with this extra crazy year! 

Running

It all started with a 5K race and it ended up being the biggest lifestyle change I've done in my life. I was never a runner, in fact, I hated running. But something inside me shifted once I raced that 5K. I even credit running for my mental health after surviving Hurricane Maria, but you can read more about that in my article at Merodea

Yoga

Where do I even begin with this? I believe I got hooked on yoga by accident. It was just a way of stretching after running, but once I noticed that I had no sore legs after doing yoga and that boost in endorphins, I knew I wouldn't go back! 

Going Plant-Based

I have been going back and forth with this topic for a while. But just in time when I began running and doing yoga I decided to give this a try one more time. It has been a challenge, specially after María, but I have never felt better in my life. Let me know if you would like to read more about my transition to veganism! 

Traveling

These past two years have been huge in traveling for me. But now, I'm in the middle of a huge life transition which is why I will probably be putting some of my vacation time on hold. But all these experiences were amazing and necessary for me. You can read more about this here

Fails

Louis Vuitton Neverfull 

This was in my bucket list since forever. After I purchased my pre-loved Speedy 30, I wanted the Nerverfull to complete my collection. Then Europe happened and I was able to purchase it for a much better price. But after I got it for a few months it didn't feel right. I didn't feel like I deserved it and after Hurricane María almost washed us off the map, I knew I had to give her up. 

It's not that I'm against luxury products now. I'm just more consciously aware of everything and I just wish to have things in my life that add value to my life and I definetely didn't feel that way with the Neverfull. 


We have been posting our favorite posts of the year on Facebook and Twitter so make sure you check that out.

Until next time,

May 2017 Favorites

Beauty, LifestyleMaría Elena RodríguezComment
may beauty favorites

If I could sum up May in one word, I would say "hectic". Between mother's day, my sister's birthday, two career profiles in the making and my very first event, #OfflineSaturdays, on top of my weekly posts and day job, this has been a crazy month. But don't worry, I have been able to stay on track of all my beauty and favorites, and most importantly, back into my healthy habits that I will share with you guys bellow. 

Ole Henriksen Transforming Walnut Scrub

I talked about this during last month's haul and it is so worth it! It literally cleans my pores like a charm. I would even say better than Biore strips! 

The only down side is that I really don't enjoy the smell, which to me is nothing like walnuts. But the good part is that even though this is a high end product, just little bit goes a long way!

Grab it here.

Wet N' Wild Photo Focus Concealer Wand

Wet N' Wild should be my favorite as a brand because I keep finding so many amazing products by them lately! This is not a super full coverage concealer, but it is just perfect for daily use. Highly recommended. Grab it here

As I said in last month's favorite, and such as the concealer, this is such a perfect every day highlighter. It's subtle but dewy!

Grab it here.

Josie Maran SPF Protect and Perfect

I really really thought I wasn't going to like the tinted version of my favorite SPF. But it turns out I like it even more. Since the coverage is slim to none, it's perfect for those no-makeup day, where having a little bit of coverage gives you a little bit of extra confidence.

Grab it here.

Crossfit & Apple Watch

After almost three months hardly working out, I bounced back to my fitness routine with none other than Crossfit! I started Crossfit a few years ago, but decided to quit because it's so expensive, but mostly because of pure laziness. I wish I had never left because I wouldn't be so sore now! Plus, it is such a great workout and every time I start my day with this type of workout I've notice that I'm so much more productive! 

But in order to get pumped into starting my fitness routine again, I decided to purchase an Apple Watch. But if you've been following me for a while, you will know that I have a love hate relationship with fitness trackers. But hear me out: I'm an Apple freak and I cannot lie. I knew I was going to end up purchasing it, and to be really honest, it has helped me stay motivated in a very low key way. 

Remember when I talked about May being such a hectic month? Yeah, it was mostly because of this event. It felt like a marathon from the moment I randomly decided to create it. From looking for a venue, a host, sponsors and even buying utensils! It was all crazy while having a full time job and running a blog at the same time, but it was so worth it! By far, one of the most rewarding experience so far! I still can't believe I had the guts to do this. 

My plan is to host an Offline Saturdays every last Saturday of eachmonth, but since I will be out of town most of June, our next Offline Saturday will take place this next July, 29. Mark your calendars! Don't forget to join the Facebook group so you stay on track of everything that will be going on! 


That's it for May! What were your May favorites?

April 2017 Favorites + Sephora VIB Sale Haul

BeautyMaría Elena RodríguezComment
april favorites and sephora vib sale haul

We have a LOT to cover this week and I'm not even going to go over the biggest Netflix disappointment of 2017 so far: Girlboss. I seriously feel so bad for Sophia Amoruso! She's been having some rough days lately... Her two books are amazing, though. 

But on to the good part: I'm 99% sure that this is the first time I've spent this much money on beauty products in just one month. Between Sephora's VIB Sale and the last Ulta deal, I haven't even logged in to my bank account, because it's probably screaming for help. But as part of my #bloggingduties I got to review lots of great products for you guys! So glass half full, ok?

Warning: This post got a little sexual or super immature at times. I'll let you be the judge. ;)

April Favorites 2017

april 2017 favorites

Nars Tinted Moisturizer | Colourpop Eyeshadow & Highlighter | Tarte Shape Tape | Skyn Iceland Artic Face Oil

ColourPop Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Sequin

I feel like I'm the last blogger in the world to actually try out this brand and let me tell you something: I'm impressed! You all know how much I love my Too Faced Peach palette from my last Monthly Favorites, but this eye shadow is something else. I really can't wait to expand my ColourPop Cosmetics eyeshadow collection!

Why I'm loving it?

  • It's super pigmented! (More than MAC eyeshadows in my opinion)
  • It has a red/ gold pigment that makes any look instantly glamorous. 
  • You get better application with your fingers, which makes it way easier for on the go! 
  • It's just $5!!!!

Down sides?

  • None! For now...

ColourPop Cosmetics Lunch Money Highlighter

Right after talking about how I don't need more than one highlighter in my life(I have about 3), my sister bought herself a holographic highlighter by ColourPop which is mesmerizing to look at! So right away I went online to try one of their highlighters and decided to go with Lunch Money since it is one of their best sellers.

Why I'm loving it?

  • It's the perfect and subtle everyday highlighter. 
  • It's just $8!!!! 

Down side?

  • If you're looking for a blinding highlighter, this is not for you. Becca's Champaign Pop will always be my one true love for nighttime. 

Grab ColourPop Highlighters here

Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Gotta say that after trying the It Cosmetics' CC Cream I thought I would never like another tinted moisturizer or balm again. But I decided to give this one a try after talking with a sales associate at Nordstrom. We were between the Pure Radiant and their Velvet Matte Skin Tint and went for the first one since my skin has been going through a normal to dry phase lately. 

Why I'm loving it?

  • It feels lightweight on the skin. 
  • Has a good amount of coverage, even though it's a tinted moisturizer.
  • It gets better as the day goes by.

Down side?

Grab this Nars Tinted Moisturizer here

Skyn Iceland Arctic Face Oil

Skyn Iceland is a brand that contacted me in order to try some of their skincare products. I had heard about them before, but I didn't know much about them, so I decided to test out some products. This is by far my favorite! Here's why:

Why I'm loving it?

  • Skyn Iceland is vegan and cruelty-free!
  • This oil makes me wake up with super hydrated, soft and glowing skin! 
  • Believe it or not, it's slowly but surely starting to replace my old time favorite, Tarte Maracuja Oil
  • Heck, I'm not even going to lie, I swear I have been seeing VERY similar results as when I used the super pricey Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil combined with the Good Genes Treatment (check out the review here).
  • And did I mention this only costs $35?! 

Down side? 

  • It's still not available in Sephora US (but it's available in Sephora Canada and Ulta

tarte shape tape concealer

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

I finally got my hands into one of these. And let me tell you: The hype is real, guys! 

Why I'm loving it?

  • A little bit goes a long way. 
  • One dot and my super stubborn dark circles are erased.
  • The most full coverage concealer I've ever tried.
  • It has a huge wand (Keep it together, girl!)

Down sides?

  • Because of the hype, it's usually sold out!

Sephora VIB Sale Haul+ First Impressions

sephora vib sale haul and first impressions

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray

I was out of this for months and I decided I needed it as much as I need my rosewater sprays, because I'm a snob like that. 

First Impression: I already know and love this product. 

Grab the perfect makeup companion here

Ole Henriksen Transforming Walnut Scrub

I was looking for a new face scrub and even though I had never heard about this product, the reviews on the Sephora website convinced me!

First Impression: The reviews were right! It actually cleared all my pores! Including, my supper stubborn nose black heads. Oh and, cute bottle! 

Grab it here

Nars Blush in Orgasm

nars blush in orgasm

Always had this shade in my shopping list and never actually bought it. But VIB Sales are where dreams come true so I finally got my Orgasm (lol). 

First Impression: I could've probably purchased a dupe for less than half the price. But what beauty blogger doesn't own this product?! 

Grab it here

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

ole henriksen truth serum new packaging 2017

You'll know I can't live without this stuff! Plus, I am loving their new packaging! (Check out how it used to look like here).

First Impression: I already know and love this product. Not going to be switching up this serum until something better comes along. 

Grab it here

Tarte Tarteist™ Lash Paint Mascara

I've had really good experiences with Tarte mascaras so I decided to try this one out. 

First Impressions: Fall out alert! Right after I opened the tube it actually started crumbling on me. But the mascar did give me some natural and curled looking lashes, after I cleaned that little mess that happened. 

Grab it here. 

Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip Collection

This is one of those products I purchased because I loved a sample. I had run of my nighttime lip balm (yes I always have a nighttime lip balm, which is extra nourishing because of my sinus). So I decided to buy it full size

First Impression: Wow! This is a really small tube! *I will not make a "that's what she said joke"*

A little goes a long way, so if you don't mind the $26 price tag, grab it here

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 Protect + Perfect

My sister and I love this Josie Maran Sunscreen, so since I was running out of the regular one, decided to give this one a try, since it has a little tint in it. Bet it will be perfect for those clear skin days! 

First Impressions: This is really greasy and has almost no coverage! What's the point of having a tint if it doesn't cover anything? Thought about returning it, but since I love my normal Argan Daily Moisturizer, I figured it would be the same thing. 

Grab it here


That's it! Hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments bellow what are your April Favorites?

Top Beauty Products of 2015

BeautyMaría ElenaComment

Yes people! I am alive. Want to know why I was missing? Because I don't think its fair for me or for you guys to post without any inspiration don't you think? The content would have been terrible. 

But to be 100% honest, I turned 25 this past November and I can't say I haven't had a mini quarter life crisis, even though I had a drafted post of "How I Got Over My Quarter Life Crisis Before it Happened" HA! I can be so optimistic at times. So as you can imagine, a lot of thinking, soul searching (super cheesy, I know) and after a weekend of cleaning, sleeping and just being with myself I can finally say I'm ready to start updating Ambinity for good this 2016! Sounds good right? 

Now, enough about the boring stuff... So what better way to start the year than by talking about all the good things from 2015?! YAAAS please. So here you go, my top beauty products from 2015:

 

Marshmallow Fireside Candle by Bath and Body Works

Why do I call this a "Beauty Favorite"? Because it helps me unwind before going to sleep. And we all know how important a good night sleep is for your beauty routine! This candle has been a favorite ever since BBW store opened in Puerto Rico. It's just how I like my candles: warm, vanilla-ish and with just a hint of spice. Heaven, just heaven. Fun Fact: I even like it more than my $65 candle. Yikes!

Cover FX Custom Cover Drops

I finally purchased this after watching Tati aka Glam Life Guru on Youtube rave about this on a First Impressions video. Even though this is definitely not a cheap foundation it is perfect for someone wanting save money due to its versatility. Just one drop mixed with your favorite moisturizer or sunblock makes it a tinted moisturizer. Want a bit more coverage? Upgrade to two, three or even four drops. Want a luminous look? Mix it in with your favorite liquid highlighter or facial oil. So many possibilities... I just love it!

Tarte 100% Maracuja Oil

Surprise? I don't think so. I don't know why but I kept trying different facial oils to see if it worked better, but nope! This oil loves my skin and I have been mixing it in with my Cover FX Custom Drops, which is working like magic. This would not be the first time I say this, but if you have oily skin, you need to try this asap

Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm

Although this is not 100% animal cruelty free, I had to include it because I have been using it every night throughout all 2015 (I purchased this before I officially became cruelty-free).  I am already looking for a dupe for this lip balm that actually compares to how velvety my lips felt even after cold and dry air. So I just ordered Glossier's The Balm Dot Com to see how it goes... As always, I'll keep you guys posted.

Sonia Kashuk's Eye Shadow Brush 

I've always thought you could apply eyeshadow with anything. Even your fingers, which is true. But when I got this brush everything changed. Not only does it feel super luxurious, it deposits the product on my eyelids perfectly. I've been specially loving this with my Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow.

Chloé Eau de Parfum

2015 is the year when I found my signature scent after years of wanting to switch from Miss Dior Cherie. It's not that I didn't like that scent, it's just that I smelled like that since High School and I was so over it! Chloe's scent is sophisticated yet youthful. It has a sweet but soft scent with a hint of spice I would say, but just go ahead and smell it by yourself. It could also be your signature scent. :)

Living Proof Sating Hair Serum

As you all know, I'm pretty low maintance with my hair, so I went from not wearing anything on my hair after I washed it to be entirely dependent on this stuff! It smells great and air drys my hair to perfection.

BeautyBlender

The original one. I tried the Real Techniques version of this for a while and I liked it, but not until I got the BeatyBlender on Sephora's VIB Sale. There should be a saying about "once you go beauty blender, you never go back", because let me tell you, I'm never using a brush to blend my foundation again.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal

If you've ever had a dull face day, you should buy this. Even if you have oily skin. I have oily skin and this gives my face a subtle glow that makes it look like I had 8 hours of sleep every day. I would suggest going for the travel size ($19) since a little goes a long way and that way you can really test it out before buying the $41 bottle.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster

I never knew I needed a serum until I tried this. I love how it smells and how it makes my skin look and feel every morning after I've used this the night before. I have a complete review here.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Another super raved mascara that I was super excited to purchase since I found out this brand is cruelty-free! I don't know if it is better than sex but, it is definitely a great mascara. It's super dark, voluminizing and it can go from day to night with just one more coat. I will definitely be re-purchasing.

So that's it guys. I must say that I really missed writing, and I will definitely keep updating Ambinity throughout 2016, but with some changes. I'll keep you guys posted. ;)

See you soon!

Summer Favorites | 2015

BeautyMaría ElenaComment

I can't believe summer is almost over! But I'm glad it almost is because it has been a crazy season and here in Puerto Rico we can't stand the heat... Literally. And don't even get me started with the drought situation! Ugh.

So to make my month a little funkier, I've been online shopping a bit too much. But lucky for us, my shopping becomes in some awesome reviews, hauls and favorite posts! Here you go:

NUXE Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm - I know this is way to expensive to even be called a lip balm, but trust me on this one: it is worth it. I've officially switched my Carmex for this lip balm at night and let me tell you what a huge difference I've noticed! My lips are the softest they've ever been and they don't get chapped throughout the day when I use it at night. Plus, a little bit goes a long way. So I say try it! It's worth the splurge. 

Bobbi Brown's Smoky Lash Mascara - It's no secret that this is my current holy grail mascara. You can see me rave about it here. And now that it is almost over and I'm trying some new mascaras I have on stock, I had to include it in this month's favorites. If you like flirty lashes and you have stubborn eyelashes like I do, this mascara is worth the splurge. 

Ecotools Stippling brush - I originally bought this to use with my Soleil Tan de Chanel, but ended up using it for almost everything. It blends makeup beautifully to the point that I'm using it for foundation, highlighter, blush and even concealer! I know that's wrong and I should clean it before switching products but it does the trick! Highly recommended. 

Ole Henriksen Aloe Vera Deep Cleanser - The brand sent me this cleanser along with an entire skincare routine and this is what I've been loving the most. I love how it smells and how gentle it feels on your skin even though it's meant for acne prone skin. 

Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment - This is a holy grail product for almost every beauty blogger. And all I can say is that if you haven't tried it yet, go buy it. 

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder (Bronze-03) - I received this on a Laura Mercier 500 points perk from Sephora and I haven't stopped using it ever since. It reminds me of my Tarte Park Ave. Princess but without the subtle shimmer. If you're looking for a sun-kissed glow without looking overdone, this is the bronzer for you. 

Feeling tropical with my new @guapapr bracelets! Stay tuned for the launch of their online shop tomorrow... I'll have the link on my blog so you can show your support for this upcoming brand. 💃🏻

Guapa Bracelets - Last but not least, I had to include my friend Annette's new jewelry line! I've been using the bracelets on my Instagram picture these pasts days and all I've been getting are compliments. This is the perfect way to add color to your summer and once you browse around her new website I bet you'll be hooked. So go ahead and support a small business! #ShopLocal. ;)

Ole Henriksen Skincare Haul

BeautyMaría ElenaComment

It's no secret that one of my favorite skin care products is Olen Henriksen's Truth Serum® Vitamin C Collagen since I already raved all about it here. So when they contacted me to be part of their #RealUsersRealResults campaign, I was totally in. I've been meaning to try many of their products and I feel so lucky to have been sent this package in order to share my honest opinion with you guys. 

Please keep in mind that all of these products were customized and sent to me as someone with normal to oily skin. So without further ado, here's my awesome Ole Henriksen haul: 

1) Aloe Vera Deep Cleanser - First impression: LOVE the color! Let's see if the product lives up to my expectations fot this brand. "This cleanser proves that you can have ultra-clean skin without stripping and dehydrating", reads the label. Which is exactly what I need in this moment of my life.

2) Grease Relief Face Tonic - Toners! So easy to skip this step right? I've been slacking on it lately and I can't wait to see the results for this one. I love that its active ingredients such as Lactic Acid and Golden Seal help to disinfect, and renew, while calming and balancing. Calming is clearly the magic word here. Hah!

3) Lemon Strip Flash Peel - Have you ever used a peel before?! As a rookie, I feel like "Incorporates 20% AHA complex to dissolve dead skin cells and resurface skin" sounds a little intimidating. But again, I have high hopes for this brand and I feel that the fact that it is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and cruelty-free, makes it far less intimidating. I'm ready guys!

4) Truth Serum Collagen Booster - I've already tested it and it is one of my holy grail products. So glad I got another bottle because I recently finished my last one. Check out my review here.

5) Sheer Transformation - Let's be real here: I pick my skin and I'm not proud of it. Its a bad vice that is specially hard on me since it leaves marks and dark spots on my skin. Why do I still do it? I don't know. But I'm excited about this cream since it says that it will diminish my dark spots.

6) Total Truth Eye Crème - I love that this product is like the sister to the Truth Serum. So again, really high expectations for this light cream. Plus, I LOVE that it has SPF 15. I've been meaning to try an eye cream with sunscreen for a while.

7) Invigorating Night Treatment - Since I love my Truth Serum so much, I usually save it for nighttime only. So I'm really excited that I get to use that one for day and this Invigorating one for night. Reading the Amazon and Sephora reviews makes me even more excited to try it!

I will start using all of these products starting tomorrow Monday, July 20th in order to give you guys my honest opinion. Stay tuned for upcoming reviews! Have you tried any of these products? What do you think?

XO, Elena

Disclousure: These items were gifted to me by the OleHenriksen team for my honest reviews. I also wanted to add that I wouldn't be able to review these products if it weren't for you guys. Your comments and your continuous readership encourages me to keep creating content that we both love. 

 As cheesy as it sounds, it has been a dream come true and for that I truly thank you.
