Valentine’s Day Pie Pops

Pie Pops

Valentine’s Day is this weekend and I wanted to do something a little different this year. Instead of buying chocolates or ordering my husband’s favorite cupcakes from GiGi’s bakery, I decided to put my wifey skills to the test and bake something of my own. Some may call it beginners luck, but to be completely honest I can’t believe how well they turned out and were super easy to make. The recipe requires very little ingredients and can be made with tons of different fillings. Keep scrolling if you want to see how I made these cute little things.

You’ll need the following: Pillsbury Pie Crusts (comes with two, already rolled out flat), Flour, 2 eggs, White Sugar, Cinnamon (optional), Cookie/Lollipop sticks (make sure they’re oven safe), Pie filling or other filling of your choice, Heart shaped cookie cutters.What you need

Start by sprinkling a handful of flour on a clean flat surface and begin rolling out your dough.Step 1

Next use your cookie cutter to cut out as many hearts as you can. You can also take the left over pieces of dough and combine it together to create a few more. Step 2

Place your hearts on a cookie sheet, making sure to leave a little space between each one.Step 3

Now the fun part of adding in the fillings! I went with classic cherry pie filling and my personal favorite caramel apple. You could add just about anything from peanut butter, nutella/chocolate, or other fruit fillings.Step 4

Next you’re going to add the sticks, and gently press down so they stick to the dough. Make sure you put it about ¼ of the way in the pie so they don’t fall off!Step 5

In a small bowl wisk 1 whole egg together to create your egg wash. On the top half of your heart (the half without the filling) take your finger or a brush and line the edge of the heart with egg wash, this will help seal the pie together. Now place it on top of your other half with the filling.Step 6

After you’ve evenly lined up the two pieces of hearts, take a fork and gently press along the edges of the dough to seal them together.Step 7

Next brush each pie with a little bit of egg wash and sprinkle sugar and/or cinnamon on top. Then pop them in the oven for about 15- 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Step 8

Once they’re done, let them cool for about 5-10 minutes and then decorate with cute ribbon or string for a little something extra! You could even add a little tag with a cute saying for your Valentine. Step 9

Enjoy! ❤Pink

My Current Skin Care Routine

skin, care, face, wash, daily, routine, beauty, makeup,

Hey guys, it’s been way too long, but I’m finally back with a new blog post. Thought out the years I’ve tried countless skin care products and feel like some did more harm than good, so after years of disappointment and irritated skin I decided to visit a dermatologist. After briefly looking at my skin, she recommended the Oil- Free Acne Wash by Neutrogena and pairing it with the Clarisonic brush. I was kind of surprised and thought how can a drugstore face wash be the answer to my problem, but sure enough she was right! Using the Oil-Free Acne Wash with my Clarisonic feels like a mini facial and gets rid of all the excess makeup left behind even after using makeup remover. The two combined are a match made in heaven! I have combination skin, and sometimes the face wash can be drying (it is oil-free after all), so I like to follow up with the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer. They have several different ones depending on your skin type, but the one for combination skin is perfect at moisturizing my dry spots, without making my t-zone overly dewy! My husband loves the face wash as well, because it’s quick and gets the job done! They have a grapefruit scented one as well, but we prefer the original. Right now Neutrogena is having a Buy 2, Get 1 Free Summer Sale if you’re interested in trying anything! If you have any skin care routines or regimens you’re loving at the moment, please leave them in the comments below 🙂

ColourPop Lippie Stix | Review & Swatches

Say hello to my new obsession! I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the brand ColourPop lately so I decided to give them a try and they did not disappoint. These Lippie Stix are so amazing and for such a great price of only $5! They have an incredibly large selection of colors online and it took me quite a while to choose. I bought four to start with and decided to get two matte finishes and two satin finishes, but to be completely honest I can’t tell much of a difference between the two except that the satin finishes are just slightly more moisturizing. They are both extremely long wearing and super pigmented. I love that they don’t dry out your lips like a lot of long wearing lip products tend to do. I can’t wait to order more, and try out their blushes and eyeshadows next. If you’ve tried any of their products before please leave me a comment letting me know some of your faves! 

Fetch – Mid tone Pink in a satin finish, great for spring!
Cookie – Nude/Beige in a matte finish, and the easiest to apply.
Frida – Mid tone Nude/Pink in a satin finish, and my personal favorite 😉
LBB – Plum/Wine in a matte finish, created by the blogger LittleBlackBoots.
