    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 –…

    Kylie Lip Kit – Candy K

    The Kylie Jenner Lip Kits exploded in the beauty world a couple years ago and I remember when they first came out they were constantly out of stock – they were that popular. I was intrigued, but not enough to sign up for restock alerts, stalk the website, or anything like that. In recent years I’ve also grown super tired of all things Kardashian so I wasn’t dying to get my hands on a lip kit. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t turn down a lip kit since people rave about them. So when my friend got me a kit in the shade “Candy K” for Christmas, I was excited to finally try…

    NARS Cheek Palette

    I have to preface this post by saying that sadly I don’t think this cheek palette is available anymore. I got it during the holidays but didn’t have a chance to share it before now. BUT, all the shades in it are staple NARS shades so you can easily buy them individually or in other cheek palettes in the future I’m sure since they are cult favorites. I mostly got this one just because I didn’t own these cult favorites on their own and the packaging was so cool! So I named this blog post “NARS Cheek Palette” because it’s really called NARS Orgasm Infatuation and I didn’t want that…

    L’Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Colored Ink

    If I had to choose between matte or glossy lip products, I almost always go with glossy. I like the look of gloss on my lips more than matte since most mattes are drying. With that being said, I still do like to try out matte lip products since they always look so good on others. Lucky for me L’Oreal and Influenster sent over some of the Rouge Signature Matte Colored Inks! I was sent 3 shades. From left to right: I Create, I Rule, and I Am Worth It. These lip inks are supposed to deliver a satin feel with the color impact of a liquid lipstick. They claim…

    Sinful Colors – Sinful Nudes Nail Polish

    You may remember back before Halloween Sinful Colors was kind enough to send me a big PR package with some decorative goodies as well as a bunch of polishes from their Conjured Color line. Well they recently sent me polishes from their upcoming line – Sinful Nudes! I was so excited to receive these nail polishes because I had no idea they were sending them to me. It was a pretty exciting surprise to receive! The shades all range from pinky, champagne polishes to dark browns. So far I have tried one of the shades with is a pink toned gold with a shimmery effect. It’s called “Tease”. I think…

    MAC Skinfinish -Snowflushed

    I’m a little late with this post on MAC’s holiday release Skinfinish – Shiny Pretty Things in the shade “Snowflushed”, but it’s on sale right now so maybe I’m actually right on time? I always love checking out the MAC holiday collection because there’s always so much to choose from and the theme and packaging are always so pretty. This year I only picked up one item from the collection and it was this Extra Dimension Skinfinish / Shiny Pretty Things in “Snowflushed”. The mirrored silver compact holds the product inside which is embossed with a bow – so seasonally appropriate. I’m not going to lie, I mostly got this…

    December 2018 Favorites + Looking Back on 2018

    Can you believe it’s the very last day of 2018?! I honestly can’t. This year went by in the blink of an eye and I need time to slow down. I thought about doing a 2018 recap and include some of my favorite posts from the year, but that would be very time consuming to go through the entire year to pick out my top posts. I used to do that but it would just take forever and I always felt like I wasn’t doing my recap justice nor paying proper homage to these favorite posts and moments. So I’ve decided not to do that this year, but I will…
