Review | Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

ESSENCE  Lash Princess Volume Mascara

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

Ulta 2x Points Haul

Ulta 2x point haul

Ulta just ended another round of their double points days and of course I picked up a few things. Not to self: make a shopping list to make the most of this event. There is an Ulta a block away from my office for which I am very grateful, these days I try to get most things at Ulta because their reward system is great and you can use the $3.50 off $15 coupon multiple times. So let’s see what I picked up. Continue reading

Germany Haul | Part 2 | Blush and More Blush

Germany Haul

How about that “Oops!” moment when you find a draft you never scheduled or posted? Better late than never I suppose. If you missed part I of my Germany haul, here it is, even if just to look at pretty pictures of makeup.

I hope you like blush because as the title implies, there is a lot of blush in part two of my Germany haul. In fact, I have been thinking of doing a blush declutter as I am now nearing 40 blushes. Don’t judge… However, I also picked up a few neat pieces that are not blush that I am also very excited about!  Continue reading

Review | Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara

Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara

It seems I unintentionally made it mascara week but that is what happens when your mascara craps out on you and you are scrambling to find a new one. Recently my beloved Manhattan mascara dried up out of nowhere forcing me to find a new mascara, in the middle of the week. Well the IT Cosmetics mascara was a fail, on to Essence and hopefully better luck. Continue reading

October Favorites

October Favorites

Another month as gone by, can you believe it is November already? October was such a fun and entertaining month of makeup for me, I feel as though I should have more favorites. Maybe I will have more next month, but for now here are the products I could not get enough of. Continue reading

August & September Favorites

August September Favorites

September is over today and for once I have my favorites ready, to which I may or may not be making edits in the following days. I had planned to do an August favorites post but that was halfway through the month which seemed pointless thus I have combined it with my September favorites. I know I forgot an item or two from August, I have the most important favorites, and as for September I have less favorites than I thought I would (I don’t wear as much makeup for my new job). Enough rambling though. Continue reading

This Week At The Drugstore


Just as I asked myself “where is my money going if not toward makeup?” I answered my own question: clothes. My money has been going toward clothing as of late, my wardrobe was in real need of an update for work and weekends. Not that this is a clothing haul, simply a lead-up to the can’t-pass-’em-up coupons I took advantage of this week. Continue reading

Review | Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Primer

Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Primer

You would think that as a die hard baseball fan I would apply the “three strikes and you’re out” rule to more areas of my life, such as makeup. But makeup is something that needs to be tried and tested, observed under a variety of circumstances. Hence why I have put up with this eyeshadow primer for longer than I should have. But no more, and here is why. Continue reading

Review | Essence Get BIG Lashes!

Essence Get Big Lashes Mascara

Greetings from the library down my street! Still working on getting internet at home and I am ever so grateful that my city has an extensive, techy, and wonderful public library system. Sometimes a girl needs a break from Starbucks. Yup, I just said that.

I’m also saying I found a mascara that I dislike. Keep reading. Continue reading

This Week At The Drugstore



I hate playing catch up. Which is what I’m doing with this series of posts and I do hope this is the last one. Fingers crossed and I will have a collective, three week haul next Sunday. For now, I am yet again really excited to share my shopping with you because I could not believe my luck with some of these finds. I definitely went over my weekly budget but it would have been a crime to let these get away! Continue reading
