Jeffree Star Cosmetics Love Sick Collection Review & GIVEAWAY!!!

Ever since I received my Holiday Collection from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, I’ve been looking forward to the next launch. Of course there were weeks of teases from Jeffree himself on Instagram & Twitter, but what sealed the deal for me was watching Jeffree’s announcement video on Youtube. Can we all just agree that the Blood…

New Year, New Me…NOT

Since this is the last day of the first month of 2018, it seeemed this would be the last appropriate time to talk about my New Years Resolutions. I’m not huge into New Years Resolution’s, but I do love to take time to reflect at the beginning of each year. I do a mixture of thinking, dreaming, and planning. One tradition that I’ve been doing for about five years now is coming up with a word of the year. I usually decide this after some prayer and reflection. For 2018 my word is A-D-V-E-N-T-U-R-E!!! Adventure. What a word. What a…

MY CHRISTMAS WISHLIST

Obviously, I think it’s clear by now that I’ve got a problem. As Buddy The Elf would say, “I’M IN LOVE, I’M IN LOVE, AND I DON’T CARE WHO KNOWS IT.” My love for makeup and all things beauty is on another level. So what better thing is there to ask for Christmas but more makeup. NATASHA DENONA Sunset Eyeshadow Palette – $129 This baby is flipping gorgeous, but ridiculously expensive. I’m not at a point currently where I could invest into this palette, but would love to review it for all of you so it’s #1 on my Wish…

SophXMakeupRevolution Palette Review

Recently I’ve been watching a lot of SophDoesNails on Youtube. If you guys haven’t heard of her or seen her, definitely click here, and check out her channel. She reminds me of the Old Youtube. You know the one where people sit on their beds and have a little chat with you about the makeup they’ve been loving. Soph doesn’t try too hard, and I think that’s what I love so much about her content. It’s simple and entertaining, but best of all I value her input. I believe just over a month ago Soph announced that she was releasing…

HUDA BEAUTY DESERT DUSK REVIEW & GIVEAWAY

ANNOUNCEMENT!!! I AM GIVING AWAY A DESERT DUSK PALETTE ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL. CLICK HERE TO ENTER! Huda Kattan, the owner of Huda Beauty announced early August that the beloved Rose Gold Textured Shadows Palette was going to be discontinued. The devastation was real! I used to work at Sephora when this palette launched in stores, and it was impossible to keep in stock. I had this thing back then with products that were consistently out of stock… I LOATHED THEM! It had something to do with being asked about them hundreds of times, and then people getting angry at…

JeffreeXJouer Sweet Tooth Review

Jeffree Star… Now if that’s not a controversial name in the beauty community, I don’t know what is. I actually made my first Jeffree Star Cosmetics purchase today. His set of Mini Nudes were calling my name. That and since I’ve been a lot more active on my social network, I really want to share my opinion on the Velour Liquid Lipsticks. Definitely keep an eye out for that blog post in the future, but back to today. I recently picked up the JouerXJeffree Lip Topper Collaboration. It launched on August 26th and as I was seeing it all over…

The Best & The Worst of Micellar Waters

I also filmed a video on my Youtube Channel about this. CLICK HERE to watch. One of my favorite skincare products for the last two years or so has been micellar waters. Simply put micellar waters are a solution of water with small oil molecules in it. They can be used to remove makeup, cleanse the skin, and moisturize at the same time. Pretty much it’s the lazy girls best friend! Can I get an amen? Over the last couple of years I have tried A LOT of different micellar waters, and I wanted to share thy knowledge that I have…

Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Collection – My Honest Thoughts

I think I may be the last makeup lover on the planet to try out Kylie Cosmetics. Basically, on principle I decided not to order any of Kylie’s lip kits when they first came out. There was so much hype around it, and I didn’t want to just hop on the band wagon. Alas, I caved. When I saw the Vacation Collection release back in May, I fell in love with the June Bug lip kit. Still, I was determined not to give in to the hype. After three weeks of a constant bombardment on Social Media, I finally decided…

Moving From WA State to WA DC… My Thoughts 2 Years Later

It’s official. Jake and I have lived in the DC area for two years now. Almost two years to the day we packed everything and flew from Washington State to Washington D.C. I can’t quite believe that I moved away from home over two years ago. I moved away from comfort, my friends, my church, my favorite restaurants, the best coffee, and so much more. Thinking back to our lives in Spokane feels like a lifetime ago, and it’s only been two years. TWO YEARS!!! So much has changed. I’ve changed. My husband has changed. Our family has gone from…
