    Sephora Favorites: Sunkissed Glow

    My husband always jokes that Sephora is my happy place. I always laugh along, but who am I kidding? I love going there to play with all of the different products. Between their 100’s of tester products, free mini makeup lessons and awesome return policy, what’s not to love? One of my favorite things to get from Sephora are the Favorites kits. They generally have a theme and include a bunch of different testers from many different brands. Some of the ones I’m currently loving are the Hydration Favorites¬†and the Nude Lip Kit. Although it is not currently available, I have also really been loving the Sunkissed Glow kit. So,…

    Monthly Favorites: May 2017

    May has been a month full of packing, studying and a lot of change. I finally finished up my finals and had a short break from classes. All of my free time went to organizing everything in my apartment and at my parents house in order to prepare for our move. It’s been a little crazy to say the least! Over the course of the last month, I have definitely found some new products to love. So here they are, my favorites for May: In May, I discovered the Tarte Empowered Hybrid Gel Foundation. And let me tell you, this stuff has been amazing for my dry skin! I’ve been…

    Monthly Favorites: April 2017

    Guys, I can’t believe it is already May! Time flys when you’re insanely busy. Even though it’s been hectic, April is one of my favorite months. The weather is beautiful, flowers are blooming and it’s my birthday month!  This month, I found a lot of new products as well as fell back in love with some old products. So you may have seen the post where I made a Diy Rose Gold Elixir, and that was based on this product. I love using this in the morning to moisturize before putting on my makeup. It moisturizes my skin without being too heavy. It also leaves my lips so soft. It’s…

    5 Monthly Favorites: March ’17

    Sometimes it’s not about buying tons of new products, but rather falling back in love with things you already own. It seems like March was a month of rediscovery for me, both for me personally and my makeup bag.  Things got tough this last month. I was feeling pressured between work and school. I was also my husband’s major support as he finished his PhD. I was feeling like the world was my weight to carry. Thankfully, it seems like everything is starting to make a turn for the better. If you’re having a tough time, just remember that things get better and don’t give up. Now that you’re caught…

    Top 20 Products to Control Oil and Hide Blemishes

    I remember all throughout high school, I had fairly good skin. I felt comfortable with using a light mineral powder foundation and rarely broke out. Fast forward 6 years and I have the skin of a teenager. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve been considering starting Accutaine (more on that later). Although my skin has been driving me crazy, I’ve nailed down a bunch of products to help conceal my acne and control my oils. So here it is, my Top 20 Products to Control Oil and Hide Blemishes. Just as a disclaimer, these are all products that have worked for me personally. Remember makeup and skincare are very…

    February Favorites

    I cannot believe it is already March. I know that February is a shorter month, but I feel like time has been flying! Soon, I am going to be starting my student teaching and the next thing you know, it’ll be May and I’ll have to start packing to move. Crazy huh? This month I’ve tried so many new products. Some I’ve done full reviews on, so I won’t go too in depth with those but i will link them below. My first favorite is these Smashbox Covershot palettes. I bought these back in December to take on a trip with me. I recently got into them again this month…
