#maskday

Even though I haven’t blogged in months, I’m going to jump right back in like I never left. That’s how I roll and hopefully my fellow bloggers can understand that a girl just needs a break every now and then. Trust me, I’ve still been buying product, testing product and even developing new routines. One…

Black Cherry

We are programmed to believe that impulse purchases are bad. That pack of gum, nail polish or magazine adds up to millions over the years and could have gone into a bank account and raised your net worth. I DON’T BUY IT. Sure, I’ve purchased something on impulse that I ended up losing moments after…

#empties

First off, I hope you all forgive me for this extremely basic photo of my empty containers, but in a quick “get out of the door” moment, I snapped this picture so that I wouldn’t forget to post about products I’ve used down to the last drop over the past couple of months. I can…

Weekly Reading

It’s been a while since I’ve rounded up some things around the internet that made me smile, so here’s a list for you. I hope everyone has had an amazing start to the week! 1. All you need to know about trying a Digital Detox and why it’s important – Goop 2. Photos that show…

Pantone Color of the Year: Greenery

As you may very well know, I’m a big fan of the Pantone Color of the Year and how it inspires trends throughout the seasons. This year the color is Greenery and is said to represent new beginnings. I’m not really big on green when it comes to makeup, but I must say this color…

Well, damn.

So yesterday I had a super relaxing Sunday complete with salmon hand rolls, a mid-day cup of coffee and giving myself an at home facial. I decided to try a new exfoliator that I was introduced to about a month ago in a beauty box. — I must admit, sometimes it takes me a loooong…

2017

Oh do I love New Years Eve and New Years Day. Anything that involves champagne and glitter already ignites everything that makes me happy inside, and the thought of being able to start fresh in any capacity is freeing and relieving. One thing I really like to do is to really take a look at…

Score!

One of the best things about the holidays is finding amazing items for yourself between shopping for your friends and family. I did a lot of my shopping at TJ Maxx this year and saw some incredible stocking-stuffer beauty items that I had to scoop for myself. One that stands out to me is this…

The Rules of Red Lipstick

Tis the season for endless holiday parties and time with your family and friends. I don’t know about you, but this time of year I tend to wear a lot of red lipstick. There’s something about a bold red lip that amps up the holidays for me. I’ve already shared my favorite reds in older…

Life after Acrylic Nails

I’ll be the first to tell you all. My nails are a hot mess. A flaming hot mess. I’d been wearing acrylic nails for about a year now, and just last week I made the decision to take remove them. Growing up, my mother never allowed me to get acrylic put on my nails so…

The book I can’t finish

If you are a regular reader of my blog than you may know that earlier this year I put out a list of books that I wanted to read and I was totally stoked about them. I was so stoked that I decided to rush and finish a book that I had been reading off…

Holiday Gift Guide for the Non-Thoughtful Person

As much as this hurts me to admit, I’m the best good gift giver. I consider myself a thoughtful person but when it comes to gifts, I never seem to be able to give someone something that warrants a “gasp” and “gush” moment upon unwrapping.. Surprisingly, even though I know I’m not good at it,…
