Julep Night Shift Sleeping Mask Review

I’ve been searching for a moisturizing night cream or mask for a while now. I was planning to splurge on some skincare products at Sephora when I saw the Julep Night Shift Sleeping Mask listed as an option in my April Julep beauty box. The website reviews rave about it’s effectiveness so I figured I couldn’t go wrong, especially since my April box was free. I’ve been using this…

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara Review

Hey everyone, welcome back to my blog! Today I’m reviewing the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara. If there’s one product I need most it’s something to hold my eyebrows in place. I always have three or four brow hairs sticking out that refuse to be tamed, it’s so frustrating! I was using a Maybelline clear gel to keep them in place for a while but…

My Wedding Hair & Makeup Trial Horror Story

Hello My lovelies,

Today is April 26th, meaning I got married two years ago! In the spirit of things I wanted to write a post about my experiences finding a salon to do my hair and makeup for the day of.
I was having a conversation with a friend a few weeks ago regarding wedding hair and makeup trials. She couldn’t believe that a bride would spend the amount salons charge on having a trail run for their big day. What could really go wrong, right??

Easy Makeup Brushes Cleansing Tutorial

Hello again lovely,

Today I am giving everything in my home a good dose of spring cleaning, and that extends to my makeup brushes. If you are like me and use a full set of brushes every day, or even a few times a week they get dirty pretty fast. It’s not something you always think about cleaning, but trust me those brushes need to be washed regularly!

Julep Maven April 2016

I finally took the plunge and signed up for Julep Maven, a 5 free nail polish & beauty subscription. I’ve been wanting to sign up for a while but I haven’t been a fan of any of the recent welcome boxes. Finally, there was a deal to get my first box as part of the regular April selections. For new subscribers your first box is free with…

Ipsy March 2016 Glam Bag Review

Spring has sprung! I was a bit skeptical about this month’s Ipsy bag. Last month just wasn’t jiving with me but I really tried to love all my products. I had a bit of box envy reading everyone’s February reviews, but I hoped this month would redeem itself.

Resident Cat All Worn Out for the Day

Anytime I sit on the couch with a blanket my legs become the most interesting place for Ion to catnap. It’s such a weird position but he was sound asleep. Gah he’s so cute I can’t handle it! And yes, I am wearing giant boot slippers. My house is cold, okay?

Ipsy February 2016 Glam Bag Review

This is my second eagerly anticipated Ipsy bag. I had a bit of a hiccup with Ipsy last month when I emailed Ipsycare to change my subscription to annual and was supposed to be billed on February 1st for the year. Instead, they billed me two weeks early and were for whatever reason going to send me a second January bag. After some frantic…
