I LOVE the little makeup bag that Ipsy included with this month's subscription. It's beautiful and feels like a better quality than the other two I've received. I usually let my 13 year old daughter have them, but I was like "Nope, this one is mine!" 🙂 This is a really good Ipsy month, in … Continue reading August Ipsy bag!
I realized this morning while I was doing my makeup before work, how much I truly enjoy that time each day. It's my time for just me. Life these days, for many people, is busy and hectic, and at times downright stressful. Kids, husband, work, appointments, housework, grocery shopping...sometimes it all just seems like too … Continue reading Getting Serious

One of my favorite things to do to achieve this look is to add an illuminator to my matte foundation. I wear Estée Lauder … Continue reading Summertime Glow
I was really excited when I found out that Sephora has their own beauty subscription. I must've been living under a rock or something. The thing that excited me the most was that it is all products that are carried by Sephora, which of course is all high end brands. So here is what came … Continue reading My First Sephora Play Box

Sometimes I get some really amazing products, like OFRA Rodeo Drive Highlight and a Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion, but often we get products from companies that I've never heard of, or that are Boxycharm … Continue reading July Boxycharm
It is so important to keep your makeup sponges clean.
