    Huda Beauty – New Nude Palette

    An update to my post yesterday – my closing on my condo went through! It was very stressful and basically everything that could go wrong along the way, did. But it worked out in the end and now it’s on to getting all the renovations done that I want to get done before I officially move in! Will keep you all posted as things progress and do some home posts. Anyway, years ago I used to be an eye palette addict. Whenever I saw a new palette come out from a popular brand and I liked the colors I would get it – especially those limited edition and holiday ones!…

    Leo Season

    A few days ago I noticed so many Leo Season posts on social media and since I’m a Leo I thought I’d write a post highlighting that – hey it’s Leo season! Plus, I got this August tee that I thought was cute. I love the image above! Interestingly enough I am a Leo and born the year of the Tiger and I dislike cats. Am I a typical Leo? I think yes and no. According to Allure, “Leo is ruled by the sun, the dazzling celestial body that governs life and vitality. The sun never goes retrograde, and likewise, Leos are renowned for their stability, loyalty, and consistency. They are…

    No Makeup Bronzer

    I have heard about Perricone MD’s No Makeup Bronzer¬†for years along with the foundation. I picked up both during the Sephora VIB sale¬†but haven’t tried the foundation yet. The bronzer though, I have been using for a few weeks now and I love it! I’m not crazy in to bronzing up my face or contouring – I do it lightly just to add some color to my face. The reason I bought the No Makeup Bronzer is because the foundation I’m currently using is a bit light for me at the moment. When I first heard about this liquid bronzer years ago, the YouTubers I had seen rave about it…

    May 2019 Favorites

    It’s the last day of May, if you can believe it. This week has been a quick one at work since I had Monday and Tuesday off, but it’s been very busy. Last night was prom and today I’ve got a hair appointment after work. Tomorrow, a wedding. The end of the school year is always extremely busy for me at work and personally! I only have a few favorites in May and coincidentally, two are beauty/skincare related and 2 are food. And not just food in general, but they’re both ice cream. Clearly, I am working on my summer bod! Let’s do the fun stuff first – the ice…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    Did you take advantage of the Sephora sale last week? Sephora only has these big sales, I think, twice a year so it’s a great time to stock up and/or try out some of the pricier items you’ve had your eye on. I’m a VIB level member so I wanted to make good use of my 15% off and get a few things. My haul this time around is pretty small, but I thought I’d share anyway. I stocked up on a few items and a few of the items are new/kind of new to me (I’ll explain what I mean by that a little further on in this post!)…

    March 2019 Favorites

    Another month coming to an end, can you believe it? We’re a 1/4 of the way through 2019 already! Yesterday, I had an early spring photoshoot with Lauren and I can’t wait to see all the photos and share some with you. Until then and since today is the last day of March, I’m sharing just a few favorites from this month. I actually don’t have that many to share, so this should be quick! First up, my new robe. I wanted a 2nd robe for the days when my other robe is in the wash. I saw this Top Shop light blue plush robe with cute rainbows on it…

    Blo Blow Dry Bar – Franklin Lakes

    Sadly, it’s Sunday already – seriously weekends go by way too fast. But, on a happier note, today I’m sharing my experience at the new Blo Blow Dry Bar location in Franklin Lakes, NJ. Blo is a blow dry bar chain with a few locations in New Jersey and the one in Franklin Lakes just opened this week. They were so kind as to invite me to their grand opening celebration a few days ago, but since it is 45 minutes away from me (without traffic), I knew it would be cutting it close to go after work during the week. But, I really wanted to go and get a…

    GrandeLash Lash Enhancing Serum

    If I could have one thing every day, in terms of beauty, I’d want nice voluminous lashes. I don’t have sparse lashes, but they’re not voluminous either. They’re also not super short. The main issue is that my lashes are so straight that even with using my eyelash curler daily, my lashes end up still going straight out instead of curled up after a short while. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about getting them to stay up, but for now I’ve started using a lash serum – a first for me – to try to at least make them have more volume. I’m terrible at applying false…

    February 2019 Favorites

    February flew by in a flash (alliteration anyone?). I can’t believe it went by so quick! January was a little bit of a crawl, but February really went by in the blink of an eye. I was supposed to go to a blogger event last night and I did get there after driving for an hour, got dinner, got Starbucks….and then got an email saying the event had to be canceled last minute….It was a bummer especially after my friend and I drove all the way up there but oh well. Anyway, I have a few February favorites to share with you so let’s get to it! First up, in…

    The Emily Edit – The Wants Palette

    Have you ever watched Emily Noel’s YouTube channel – Beauty Broadcast? I used to watch her beauty videos all the time, but in the past 1-2 years I haven’t had time to watch YouTube like I used to! So it’s been quite a while since I’ve watched any of her videos, but I do follow her on social media still and she’s still one of my favorite beauty blogger/YouTubers. Well, she used to blog, I don’t know if she still updates that since she is most known for her YouTube channel. But anyway, the point of this post is that I got her eyeshadow palette – The Emily Edit –…
