As much as I love being a girly-girl, I must admit that it can feel like a hassle at times. Waking up early to do my makeup or “put my face on” as I like to say, going over outfit combinations with jewelry and makeup, making sure I have something pink to wear on Wednesdays. I lose motivation sometimes, especially when I think about my job: alone in a closed office, eight hours a day, the only people I see are the cafeteria staff when I fill up my coffee cup or people refilling their water bottles in the break room.
This morning I asked myself, “Why? Why bother?” I may as well wear jeans and a hoodie like a good techie, no one would notice anyway and I’d save time in the morning.
Here is a reason or two. Continue reading
I am big fan of Mario Badescu products, so it when I wanted to incorporate vitamin C into my skincare regime I added one from Mario Badescu. This little 1 oz bottle lasted a little over a year and that is plenty of time for me to make up my mind about it, right? Continue reading
I think I need to set myself reminders to blog since it’s the end of March and the last time I posted was….The days melt together and I keep finding weekend activities to keep me busy. With the days getting longer and hence better lighting for photos, I hope to be better about it. Fingers crossed.
Sooo, I’ve had this mascara since Christmas and it’s been hiding in my makeup bag ever since. But why? Continue reading
Life is better with glitter and I responsibly apply it to every thing I can, including makeup brushes. This year I have seen an increase in girly and cute sets of makeup brushes yet the majority are still plain old black. While I can’t show you how to carve your makeup brushes into unicorn horns, I can show you how to jazz them up for less than a dollar. Continue reading
You know it’s time to review a product when you have emptied the bottle. So today I want to share my thoughts on the OGX Moisture + Vitamin B5 Weightless Oil Mist, this full size bottle came in an IPSY bag months and months ago and boy am I glad it did. Continue reading
I am long, long overdo for a Vegas trip so in lieu of that I am sharing my day-to-night makeup picks. Whether you like shopping, relaxing, food or nightlife, Las Vegas has everything and I never have a bad time. So when I heard about the Vegas.com makeup challenge I got giddy (and sad because I haven’t been in a while). Here is what I came up with. Continue reading
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Actually, it’s the most expensive part especially when you’re buying decorations from scratch. It really is a pretty time of the year and when I saw this tag on All Things Lacquer I had to steal it. Again? I think I stole the same tag from her last year too… Continue reading
I did it! I finally cancelled my Ipsy subscription, I feel great, and I’m going to tell you all about it. Get ready. Continue reading
Next on my list of posts I need to put up: these Real Techniques makeup brush dupes from eBay. I saw these on Reddit in late November and ordered them the next day as I was in need of makeup brushes and the price could not be beat. While I waited for mine to arrive I saw them popping up on the Instagrams of a couple of my favorite bloggers and even a recommended video on Youtube. They arrived in early December and four months later, here they are on the blog. Continue reading
Welcome to what is probably my last Ipsy Glam Bag for a while. In other words, this month’s bag has been the nudge I needed to cancel my Ipsy subscription after five or so months of debating. I am not a fan of their customer service model and when I pulled this bag out of my mailbox the pink envelope was barely sealed! I mean, a tiny sliver of adhesive was keeping the flap glued to the envelope and the rest was open like a clam. Not to say that April’s bag was a complete loss but as a whole Ipsy does not seem worth it to me anymore. Still, here is my April Glam Bag (don’t mind the salt)! Continue reading
