Spring Makeup | 2014

Welcome to Spring! I think? Apparently the East cost is supposed to be slammed with snow again next week. We’re all still bundled up here and still feeling the effects of Winter, but I have been craving spring colors for a while now. I’m ready to leave my coat at home, throw on something colorful, […]

NYX Invincible & Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation Review

Full coverage foundations are pretty important to me. My foundation itself is the most important thing that goes on my face since I still have breakouts and redness (or scares) from the blemishes. I’ve always wanted to make sure everything was fairly covered up with minimal red showing through my foundation. Light to medium coverage […]

Fuzzy Hats & Ice Skating

Things are always an adventure when Kelly’s around. That’s one reason why I just love her! At the end of the summer she moved out of the area, states away, so when she was here for a quick Thanksgiving visit, Jackie and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to hang out with her. Kelly thought it […]

A Shop Lately Christmas

Whew! Have things been crazy around here! And I’m not talking about just getting ready for the Holidays. We’re prepping for moving this weekend, so we’re packing away (or trying to.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment

Back when I worked at Sephora during the Holidays,Β we had the Fresh Sugar duo birthday gifts for the Beauty Insiders. I had never tried the product and had heard from many that it’s a great lip balm. The packaging enough drew me in with the colorful metal twist tubes. But I stayed away until it […]

Iris eau de toilette Spray by Crabtree and Evelyn

About a year ago I discovered at Hallmark this amazing scent. Every time I would go in I would always spritz a little on my wrist, not ready to make the commitment of purchasing a bottle for myself. So after admiring it all this time, this was the only thing I asked my husband to […]

Anthropologie & Victoria’s Secret | My Sunday Out

With good reason, it’s been a while since this girl has gone shopping or enjoyed a Sunday out. Today, I decided to discard my pajamas, actually curl my hair, and wear my red lipstick and go to the local town center. It was time to get out and enjoy myself, even with it flurrying all […]
