    Date Box: Unity

    I don’t know about you, but here in Colorado it is definitely feeling like fall. We have already had snow… TWICE! As much as I love fall with its pretty foliage, spiced drinks and delicious food, I am not a fan of winter. Other than Christmas, I find winter to be too cold and drab. For my husband and I, it seems like we fall into a little bit of a date rut. We are always following the same routine, especially when it comes to date night. Its too cold to be outdoors much so we go to the mall, have dinner, see a movie, and repeat. Thanks to Date…

    Kathleenlights x Colourpop: The Zodiac

    ????Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are…???? Every since I was a little girl, I have loved the stars. I remember counting stars at night when I couldn’t sleep and the first time my husband told me he loved me was while star gazing. I find them so mysterious and have always been intrigued by star charts and the zodiac. While I may not be an expert, I find the idea that our personalities are actually written in the stars to be so romantic. When I first saw The Zodiac collection by Kathleenlights and Colourpop, I felt so inspired. At first, the colors seemed a little jumbled…

    Hello Happy Foundation

    If you’ve checked out my Skin Diary¬†posts, you know that I have struggled with my skin for some time now. While my acne is a whole lot better, I have noticed something else that is a rather BIG issue: my pores. Honestly, some days they looks so large I don’t even know what to do. When Benefit Cosmetics released the Hello Happy Foundation and claimed it had blurring properties, I knew I had to try it out. The Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation is a matte finish, light-to-medium coverage liquid foundation. Benefit claims that the foundation will even skin tone, blur imperfections all while helping to protect your skin with…

    6 Tips for Surviving Long Distance Relationships

    We all know the saying “distance makes the heart grow fonder.” Personally, I really dislike that saying because it makes it sound like having a long distance relationship is easy. The reality of it is that being in a long distance relationship is hard; like really, really hard. It takes a lot of trust and confidence to make it through. My husband and I started dating in November of 2014. By April of 2015, we were already living together and engaged soon after. Everything seemed like a fairytale. That is until the summer came. That summer, he took an internship several states away and was going to be gone 3.5…

    Boxycharm: July 2018

    There have been a ton of changes in my life over the last month, some good and some not so great. Either way, its been a little rough. However, one thing I can always look forward to each month is my Boxycharm. This month’s theme was summer road trip and all of the products were curated around that. This month’s box contained five products with multiple possible variations. If you are unfamiliar with Boxycharm, it is a monthly makeup subscription box. In my opinion, it is the best out there. Each month you will receive 5-6 full sized makeup and/or skin care products all for only $21. Even better? They…

    Makeup Eraser

    Picture this: You’ve been traveling all day and finally make it to your hotel room. You’re exhausted and all you want to do is crash. You know you should really take off your makeup so you dig through your suitcase only to find that you forgot your makeup remover or even worse it exploded all over you bag. Sounds like a total headache right? Well I may have found the answer: the Makeup Eraser. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in a similar situation, or just completely forgot my makeup remover altogether. This actually happened in Malaysia and I remember trying to scrub it off with…

The most exciting part about being home again is I get to play with my new Boxycharm! And let me tell you, this months box is extra special! If you aren’t familiar with Boxycharm, it…

    Storybook Cosmetics x Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    If you haven’t heard of Storybook Cosmetics, they are one of my absolute favorite makeup brands. All of their products are themed around different childhood stories and classic novels. Honestly, their whole aesthetic is what a book lover’s dreams are made of. Previously, I have reviewed the Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette (based on Harry Potter) and the Rose Face Brushes (inspired by Beauty and the Beast). Today, I am excited to tell you all about another palette from Storybook Cosmetics based on the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. Where as the Wizardry and Witchcraft Palette is more smokey, the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Palette is…
