Well, it’s cold out. Like, really cold..and windy….and bedtime feels like 6 o’clock because the sun abandoned us at five. What I’m trying to say is I’m already dreading winter. On the bright side…a new season and new weather means a change in my beauty routine. Which means…an excuse to shop! ūüėČ So, if you’re wondering what to buy to make the transition into winter just a bit easier on your skin and look then you’re going to love this… Read more »

The most common comment I get on my smokey eye makeup is…”I try and do something like that and I just look silly!” I bet you don’t! We all spend so much time looking at ourselves in the mirror that sometimes when we try something a bit different than our usual look we think we look ridiculous…when someone else thinks you look great! There are so many tutorials and tips on achieving the perfect smoky eye look! But…if you keep… Read more »

Well, this is it. My¬†very first¬†video tutorial. It didn’t go as smoothly as I would have liked…some technical difficulties (the recording stopped about 8 minutes before I was done), some cringe-worthy moments (do I¬†really sound like that??), and some first timer mistakes (okay, a lot of first timer mistakes-couldn’t make myself look into the camera, pronouncing things wrong, be an all around goofball) but…I did it!! Can I just say…there is nothing more humbling than seeing an extremely well lit,… Read more »

I’m in LOVE with all things NAKED! Damn Urban Decay for making something so wonderful and naming it something so awkward. In all seriousness, UD really outdid themselves with the Naked 3 Palett. The colors, the presentation and the brush (double ended) are all equal parts unique and yet on trend. That really should be UD’s motto if you ask me! This is my current “go-to” look from the palett. It’s neutral and yet a little bit glam!   ¬†Be… Read more »

Happy Friday!! Tonight, while I was completing one of my (rather strange) beauty rituals…I tried to remember where I came up with it! I decided this one stemmed from a trick my mother taught me -gotta love moms! It dawned on me that several of my absolute favorite little beauty tricks were either passed down to me or learned by some trial and A LOT of error. I figured my lovely readers might be looking for a winter pick-me-up for… Read more »

I wish I had a reality show (doesn’t everyone?). My life is pretty much an epic mixture of blunders, mistakes and horrible decisions…mixed with good intentions and lots of good luck that somehow all comes together to make a pretty spectacular existence. I feel like that could be fun to watch, I mean, my husband finds me incredibly entertaining.¬† I say this because…my blog mentor recently suggest I write a quick post with some “Beauty Do’s & Don’ts”, my response?… Read more »

I don’t want to brag…but it is kind of a well known fact that I have one of the most beautiful groups of friends…ever! I know I may be biased…but it’s true! Family, co-workers, pseudo strangers stalking my Facebook profile…lots of different people have brought it to my attention and I have to agree…I just have an extremely attractive set of gal pals. This is good news for me because one of them asked me to do their makeup for… Read more »

It always freaks me out when people ask for my advice in regard to¬†anything, I mean…what if my recommendation, idea, etc. brings them nothing but disaster. I don’t like that kind of responsibility! Obviously…this is something I have had to overcome as this blog has grown and developed. I’m finding that despite my hesitance to do so…most of my posts contain my advice, my input and certainly my opinion…and the truly wonderful people that read it have been¬†*gasp* valuing my… Read more »
