Younique’s Self-Tanning Spray For Face Review: Does It Really Work?

Image of the Younique tanning spray on my faceI’ll be the first to admit that I have never used self-tanner on my face. I am a champ when it comes to applying it on my body so that I have a great looking tan, but applying it on my face is a completely different story. Probably because I have super sensitive skin and then there’s always that possibility of ending up orange or streaky and having to go out in public that way. Like seriously, what do you do then?!

One of Younique’s brand new Spring products is self-tanning spray. While intrigued by a self-tanner that is a spray, it also made me a bit nervous. When I say I’m a champ with self-tanner, I’m talking about self-tanning lotion or [Read more…]

How To Get Perfect Brows (and the secret you may not know)

image of me and my eyebrowsBrows on fleek. Those words have never been said to me before.  Until today, that is. That’s right; I feel like I’ve finally had my brow moment and my day (read: year) has been made!

Who else has some sparse looking, wavy eyebrows? Oh.  Just me? Cool.  Well, let me tell you that having these unruly brows has been tough on me when it comes to wanting to have beautifully defined brows.  And, for the longest time, I just thought that I’d have to live with these brows because it seemed like there was nothing that could be done to help out the situation. Dramatic, I know, but so true.

I’ve been told by many of my customers that [Read more…]

Self-Tanning Do’s and Don’ts

image of tips for self-tanning blog postI once saw a picture that said, “If you can’t tone it, tan it!” Amen to that! There’s just something about that glowing bronzed look that lots of people can’t get enough of.  You feel skinnier when you are tan.  You feel more confident and pretty. You get to wear less makeup because there’s less to hide with tan skin.  It’s an overall great mood booster, well for me anyways!

I like to think of myself as a self-tanning expert.  (Is that even a thing? Ha!)  I had a mole/cancer scare years ago (thank you, tanning beds) and am more careful about being in the sun ever since.  I’ve tried lots of self-tanners through the years, have had streaky legs because I didn’t know what I was doing, and have since learned many [Read more…]

8 Rules to Live By For An Authentic Life

Live an authentic lifeHave you ever felt like you aren’t enough?  Have you ever felt like you don’t let the real you shine through with others?  Have you ever felt like you don’t even know the type of person you are?

I would raise my hand to all of the above questions.  Truthfully, about a month ago, I thought I was having a mid-life crisis.  (Not even kidding.) I was feeling exactly how I thought someone would feel when going through a mid-life crisis.  Perhaps it’s a bit dramatic, especially since I’m only 35 years old, but my feelings were/are very real.  Come to find out, I’m just on this amazing journey called life.  I’m trying to figure out the type of person that I am.  I’m trying not to compare myself to others.  I’m trying to own my own story, even though parts can be a little embarrassing.

Do You Absolutely Love Lipstick Or Lipgloss?

Picture of all the Younique Lipstick colors.There are two kinds of women in the world: Lipstick lovers and Lip Gloss lovers. When I was younger, I loved playing with my mom’s lipstick, just like most little girls do. Once I got a little older and discovered lip gloss though, I never went back to lipstick.

No matter how hard my mom tried (and she did try, mostly with red lipstick at my formal dances in high school), I just never liked the way that it made my lips feel. Since then, I’ve always just been a lip gloss kind of girl. I like the way that lip gloss feels on my lips rather than the dry finish [Read more…]

Bruce Jenner Interview And The Transgender Community

Quotes from EllenIf there’s one thing that I don’t understand it’s how people can be so judgmental in this world. It honestly blows my mind that people are so close-minded, like their way is the only way for every single walk of life and nothing else is acceptable. We are in 2015, y’all, and that’s just not how the world rolls.

It’s quite unusual that I talk about what’s going on in pop culture here on my blog, but there’s a first for everything, isn’t there? Everywhere I turn, whether it’s picking up my son from school or overhearing ladies in Starbucks, I [Read more…]
