    Volition Beauty – Rose of Jericho Renewing Elixir

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I am a fan of Volition Beauty and for over a year they’ve been kind enough to send me some products to try out. The newest is the Rose of Jericho Renewing Elixir. The Rose of Jericho is known as the Resurrection Plant, which sounds pretty cool to me. Using the resilience of the plant, the elixir ” helps to re-energize and assist in the acceleration of skin’s cell renewal process. Naturally retaining moisture and springing back to life from its once dried out state, its the most effective skin care ingredient that you’ve never heard of.” It’s also described as…

    Sinful Colors – Conjured Color

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I typically paint my own nails. It’s not that I don’t like going to the nail salon, but I don’t usually have the time and I’d rather save the money. So unless I’m treating myself to a mani/pedi or have somewhere special to go where I’d like to get my nails professionally done – I’ll do them myself. In fact this past summer when I had a marathon of weddings to go to within 1 month, I just did my own nails each time. Now, even though I do my own nails I am by no means an expert…

    It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara

    Quick beauty post for you! I love trying new mascaras and since I don’t wear false lashes I’m always looking for something that will volumize my lashes. Dior Overcurl has been my favorite for a long time, but it’s more expensive than the drugstore mascaras so I don’t buy it all the time. I had heard good things about the It Cosmetics mascara – Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. It’s only a few dollars less than the Dior one but I wanted to try something new. The verdict? I love it! It’s definitely up there with  Dior Overcurl. Here’s how It Cosmetics describes it: “Imagine lashes so long and full,…

    Museum of Ice Cream x Sephora

    I’ve never been to Museum of Ice Cream, but I always see photos and videos of people going when it’s in their city and it looks like so much fun. Ice cream themed exhibits and a pool of sprinkles to dive in to – who wouldn’t want to go to that?! So to tide me over until I one day get to go, I had to browse the collaboration Museum of Ice Cream did with Sephora. There are multiple items in the collection such as a charm bracelet, cheek palette, eyeshadow palette (that looks like a popsicle or ice cream bar!), brushes, etc. A few years ago, I would buy…

    Dr. Brandt Magnetight Mask

    I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to do a lot of face masks, but I made time Sunday morning to use the Dr. Brandt Magnetight Age-Defier Mask. So I was going to use it Friday night but then was too tired and told myself I’d do it Saturday night. On Saurday, I put the mask out on my vanity to remind myself to do it. I woke up Sunday morning realizing I hadn’t done it! Since the mask can be used morning or night I decided to do it after showering on Sunday morning. What’s really cool about this mask is that you use a magnet to…

    Sephora VIB Haul

    I was originally planning a different post for today, but it’s not quite ready to publish – I’m still waiting for a few photos to complete the post. In the meantime I’m sharing a haul. The big Sephora sale for VIB Rouge, VIB, and Beauty Insiders was a few weeks ago so I’d thought I’d show you my little haul. I wasn’t really in the need for anything major so my haul was pretty small, but I wanted to take advantage of the discount since Sephora only has these sales maybe two times a year. I have one (maybe 2) item that I’ve used before and 3 that are new.…

    Fall Transition Nails: A Cut Above + Eternal Optimist

    I did my nails last night while watching Dirty Dancing and I loved the colors so much I thought I’d share! I painted my nails with Essie’s “Eternal Optimist” which is a beautiful pink rose color. On my ring fingers I topped “Eternal Optimist” with “A Cut Above”, a pretty rosy pink glitter, for accent nails. I think these colors are the perfect fall transition nail colors. They are rosier and more muted than the fun, bright summer colors, but aren’t your typical dark winter colors. The perfect in-between shades! Essie polishes never disappoint me and I’m seriously loving these colors!

    Laura Mercier Translucent Powder

    My latest box from Influenster was an exciting one – Laura Mercier products! I think it’s definitely the most luxurious products they’ve sent me so far. I was thrilled to receive the Translucent Loose Setting Powder in the new “Glow” version along with a travel size with poof and the Glow Powder Brush. I’ve been wanting to try this loose setting powder for ages because everyone always raves about how silky smooth it is. Now I have not just one, but two! I’ve only been using this powder for a week, but it really is so lightweight and smooth. The brush has a special shape to fit the contours of…

    Jade Roller

    Have you guys been keeping up with what I’m up to on vacation on Instagram/my Instastories? I’m writing this post ahead of time before I get on the plane so I’m assuming that by now I’ve gotten to post on Instastories while overseas, so if I haven’t just ignore that and check back soon! Have you used a jade roller? I’ve been hearing about these for about a year, first seeing them in skincare articles and then seeing people use them on social media. I had really wanted to try one, but didn’t get around to buying one for myself. Until now. I was looking for a birthday present for…

    July 2018 Favorites

    When this post goes live I should be sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight for vacation! My posts the next few days have already been written and scheduled, but as long as my hotel internet is working I should have my first travel post up this weekend! I’ll be gone for about 2 weeks, so look out for exciting travel posts! The month of July was super busy with family visiting, moving, short trips to Baltimore and historical Philadelphia, and seeing Taylor Swift in concert. With being so busy I don’t have a lot of favorites to share so this post will be short! The first favorite…
