Beauty Favorites 2016 (“Best of Beauty”)


A few weeks into the new year and I thought I’d kick things off on a positive note with a Beauty Favorites 2016 post. I haven’t done a favorites in ages. Something I’m hoping to rectify in 2017. The products featured in this post aren’t necessarily products that were released in 2016. More like products that I discovered last year. I’m not featuring skincare because I plan to do a skincare routine post at some point. Over the past four months or so, I’ve been experimenting with my skincare and have found some fantastic products. There are just a few that I need to get a better sense of before I feel comfortable enough to share my routine/recommendations with you guys. Hopefully, I can get that up sometime around February/March. I’ll also talk about my favorite hair care products in a separate post.

Thankful for You: Kat Von D Beauty Giveaway


Who’s ready for the holiday season? I know I am definitely looking forward to great food and fun family festivities. Can’t get enough of pumpkin cheesecake and rum cakes at the moment. What are your must have indulgences? We’re also doing some travelling in December which I’m also very excited for. Do you guys have any upcoming plans? To celebrate the holidays on the blog, I’m ending the year with a Kat Von D Beauty giveaway. Recently, I reviewed the Kat Von D Metal Matte Eyeshadow palette (here) and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Mini set (here) which were released for the holiday season. I’ve been enjoying them both so much that I thought one of you might do so as well!

Black Friday Beauty Deals (and Cyber Monday)


It’s that time again…when all of us shopaholics rejoice and consumerism reaches new heights: BLACK FRIDAY! With the biggest shopping day of the year right around the corner, I will admit that I’m not one to brave the madness of actually physically going out and shopping. No. I much prefer to take advantage of the plethora of online deals (which are just as good anyway). So I thought I’d share with you guys some of my favorite Black Friday beauty deals (and Cyber Monday deals) as well as others I’ve coming across over the past week. Happy Shopping (or not) everyone!

Kat Von D Metal Matte Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches


Back with more from Kat Von D! While I enjoy almost every product I’ve tried from Kat’s beauty line, I’d never actually purchased one of her eye shadow palettes. When she released her Metal Crush eye shadows last year I was really tempted, especially after all of the stellar reviews. But I held back because I don’t typically purchase many eye shadow singles. When the Kat Von D Metal Matte Eyeshadow Palette, therefore, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take the plunge…

Battle of the Cleansing Sticks | Tarte, Boscia & Belif


Cleansing in Stick form? I was more than just a little intrigued by the presumed convenience of it all. Being a new mommy, I’ve grown to appreciate products that can potentially simplify my beauty routine. And since it’s been a while since I’ve done a “Battle of…”, I decided to purchase a few to compare. This Battle of the Cleansing Sticks includes: the Tarte Frxxxtion Stick Exfoliating Cleanser, Belif The True Tincture Cleansing Stick Chamomile and Boscia Charcoal Deep-Pore Cleansing Stick Treatment.
