Treat Yo Self Tuesday: Fiona Stiles Matte FoundationĀ 

Happy #TreatYoSelfTuesday !šŸŽ‰ 

My current obsession and new found favorite makeup product is the Fiona Stiles Matte Finish Foundation Concentrate

And guys, when I say that I’m obsessed, I’m literally OBSESSED. 

[Before I continue to rave about this product, I’ll have you know that this post is no way sponsored and there are not any affiliate links or codes included here! I genuinely love this brand and this product and I wish I could be sponsored by this lovely brand.]

I first heard about this brand and foundation from my esthetician. I have acne prone skin and I’m always fighting more than a few breakouts on my face. I also have oily skin and a lot of acne scars(red marks and indentation scars) .

So basically, I have really flawed skin… in order for me to do the best for my skin, I need foundation that’s paraben free and free of all of those crazy pore cloggers that are in so many cosmetic products.

I try not to cake on my foundation because I know how horrible that is for your pores and skin. And I also know that the less makeup I wear and the more I let my skin breathe, the better. (Less is more šŸ˜‰) 

There are just many days though where I feel so insecure about my breakouts and my scars, that I like to wear foundation. It helps to boost my confidence, I feel a little better with it on, and I love putting it on. 


Here’s What I LOVE about this foundation: 

  • It is so light weight! It does not feel cakey or thick at all. 
  • It offers the perfect amount of coverage- medium to full. 
  • It gives you the perfect matte finish… it’s never dry looking. 
  • It STAYS Matte.. all day long
  • It blends effortlessly with a brush or Beauty blender. 
  • The packaging is high quality, it comes with a pump, and it’s all around packaged beautifully. 
  • It does not contain any parabens or pore cloggers. 
  • It gives you a very beautiful finish and looks natural (while still being full coverage) 

I’ve been currently applying this foundation with a beauty blender, but I also will use the Wet n’ Wild Flat Top Brush (and if you haven’t tried these new Wet n’ Wild brushes yet, you need to!) 


It is currently 21 Days of beauty At Ulta and I discovered this product is HALF OFF! So of course I bought four of these. [ha ha] (I also bought their concealer which I have been LOVING as well.) 

Before this foundation, I used to use the Bare Minerals Original Foundation. I love that foundation because it only has FIVE ingredients in it and it’s insanely good for your skin. BUT, I’m an oily mess, and there’s no way to make that foundation Matte… I look like a shiny disco ball two hours after I put it on… that’s only because of how oily my skin has become. It’s still an amazing foundation.


So I finally retired my beloved Bare Minerals and will use the Maybeline Fit Me Matte from time to time. But Fiona Stiles Foundation is my new ride or die. 
So like I said, if you’re looking for a new foundation that’s light weight, full coverage, good for your skin, and gives you a beautiful finish, you might want to try Fiona Stiles Beauty. 


I highly recommend it šŸ˜‰ 

What is your current ride or die Foundation and why? šŸ™‚ 


With Love,

#TREATYOSELFTUESDAY – Halo Top Ice Cream

Happy Tuesday! It’s time to shed some light on a splurge worthy product!

My current obsession is the delicious Halo Top Ice cream!

Have you heard of it yet? I am sure you have because I have been seeing it ALL OVER social media…

My favorite fitness/wellness YoutubersĀ were talking about it (Jordan Cheyenne and Whitney Simmons)

I have seen it all over Instagram and Facebook, so I decided to set out on a search for it!

Sooo, what is Halo Top Ice Cream, you ask? Well, It is a Healthy ice cream… That’s right, HEALTHY ice cream! (Say what?!)

I couldn’t believe it myself either, but when I looked at the nutritional facts, I was stunned!

I have only tried two flavors, but I am a huge fan of both. My favorite thing about this ice cream is that it has low calories and a good amount of protein.

The first flavor I tried was the “Birthday Cake” and I loved it! I bought it at my local smiths for $5.50. The birthday cake pint is 280 calories total. It is 70 calories and 6 grams of protein per serving. Compare thatĀ to a serving of other ice cream being 150 calories and 2 grams of protein per serving … Halo top for the win!

So what does it taste like?

It taste delicious! It is definitely a different taste from your typical blue bunny or ben & jerry’s. But it’s a good different!The second flavor I tried was Mint Chip, and I fell in love with it! The minty flavor tasted so good and actually left a “fresh” feel to my mouth. and this flavor is 240 calories per pint! I bought this one at Whole Foods for $5.99Ā when me and my best friend Summer went on the hunt for these when I told her about them. She is a huge birthday cake fan, so she tried the birthday cake flavor!

I saw so many other flavors that I wanted to try (Like LemonĀ cake and Chocolate almond crunch)Ā but just couldn’t justify buying more than one, knowing that I won’t eat them all. (They are DELICIOUS, but I am just not a sweet tooth)

There is a lot of hype over this product, and I will say that it is definitely worth the hype. There is such a wide range of variety for the flavors, which is nice! They are far more healthier than any other ice cream out there. And, they taste so good! I believe they are worth the hype, splurge,Ā and the price!

With all the flavors they have, you are bound to fall in love with one! So I say, go out to Whole Foods (or wherever else they sell them) and TREAT YO SELF to some of this ice cream! You won’t regret it, because it ain’t all that bad for you anyway! šŸ˜‰

Have you already tried Halo Top? If so, what did you think of it? And what was your favorite flavor? Let me know so I can know which ones to try next!

Thanks for tuning in for another #TREATYOSELFTUESDAY post! Let me know what you think of Halo Top!

Blessings,

#TreatYoSelfTuesday- Mieroglyphs Bracelets

Ā 

It’s my first ever #TREATYOSELFTUESDAY here at wildandfreeoutdoors.com! YAY!

This is a series on my blog where I review and recommend products that I have been loving and think are splurge worthy! The products that I will be mentioning range from Makeup to food to jewelry, and pretty much anything!

[Disclaimer: ALL opinions and thoughts are my own. If an item/brand is ever sponsored or anĀ affiliate, I will mention at the end of post, but even so, ALL opinions and reviews will be my honest and true opinion. I will never promote something I do not like myself.]

TODAY’S PRODUCT that I have been obsessed with are these amazing bracelets from an AMAZING brand.

These are the Mieroglyphs bracelets sold at https://www.mieroglyphs.com/

Lets talk about this brand for a second and why I love them!

First off, their slogan is “goods for the good of this world”. Isn’t that lovely?! That is their slogan because this is a company that creates hand- crafted, customizable, cruelty- free,Ā and vegan products! Each bracelet is hand made and customized to the buyer’s request. None of their products are mass produced. Thought, love, and hard work is put into each and every bracelet made by this company! (I just LOVE that.)

The whole purpose of this brand is to spread motivation and inspiration through their products and that is what makes them so special! They even have Pet accessories! (how cool is that?!)

I also love the style of this brand and their products. It is unique and a breathe of fresh air to me.

My absoluteĀ MOST FAVORITE thing about Mieroglyphs is the customizable part! I love how you can take part of your favorite verse, song lyrics, or name and have it engraved on the bracelet.

IĀ had one of my bracelets engraved with “Wild and Free Wanderer”. Every time I wear that bracelet and see my blog name, I get such an inspired feeling. It is a sweet reminder of my love for writing and how I have began to pursue my dreams with my blog! It isĀ a product that is so special to me!

And the cool thing is there’s not another like it! šŸ˜‰ It’s unique and made just for me!

Since Valentines Day is approaching, I think one of these bracelets would be a sweet idea as a gift! You can engrave it with whatever you’d like for your loved on to see! You can make it special and unique and just for the person you love the most!

Gift it or TREAT YOURSELF to it! I’m happy to be supporting and sharing my love of this brand with all of you! I hope you all check out all of the amazing products this company has to offer, and I hope you love and are inspired by these products just like I am.

I am so happy I was introduced to this brand and I am even happier to have an affiliated discount code to share with you all for your purchases! Use Code: OLIVIA for 20% off your purchase! (ALL CAPS on Olivia)
