Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the leaves changing & the air cooling. I love pumpkin everything and bundling up with sweaters & cute jackets. It’s such a wonderful time of the year, but living in Houston leaves much to be desired when it comes to Fall. Houston doesn’t really do Fall. The cooler temperatures coming in may be around 85 degrees and [Read more…]
Mascara: The one makeup product we can’t live without!
Raise your hand if you’ve ever put on your makeup, then reached for your mascara tube, only to find it to be dried out and yucky. What about the second you’ve swiped your mascara wand on your lashes only to see that the *WOW* factor isn’t very wow because you literally had to scrape the sides of the mascara tube with the wand? Yep, both have happened to me too many times to count and each time I’m left to wonder why I don’t have a brand new mascara waiting for me stashed with my other makeup.
Ahhh, you know what I’m talking about with a brand new mascara! The way it makes your lashes stand out because of [Read more…]
I’m a sucker for face masks of all kinds: Detoxifying charcoal, oil control, exfoliating, brightening, sheet, and more. There’s just something really nice about pampering your skin with a luxurious mask and feeling super refreshed after. Fancy even. There’s nothing like how you feel after taking off a mask.
Truth be told I’ve never used a gold mask that I had to peel off before and could not wait to get my hands on [Read more…]
Every woman in the world loves a simple beauty hack here and there to make her life easier, whether it is helping her freshly shampooed hair dry faster (& without frizz) or learning a quick way to take five pounds off of her face. We are all busy. We all would love to look just a little more put together. We would love to [Read more…]
This could only mean one thing: It’s spring time, y’all!
Spring is one of the best times of the year! It’s the time for getting out with all the clutter we have accumulated. The time to free up space. The time for making even more space for fun new products… Oh, wait, that’s not how it goes?! Throwing away products that have expired and moving on with new ones is a [Read more…]
Remember back in September how I posted about how awesome Younique’s liquid foundation is, but that it was because my skin decided to break out with bumps all over and I needed some additional coverage? Well, I am so excited to provide an update about that little problem that is no more!
It seems like the older we get, the more we have to “work” at our skin. I remember how good I had it back in high school. One of my [Read more…]
Be careful what you wish for, right? I’ve always been obsessed with Younique’s liquid foundation and the flawless look I get after applying it. There has been a time or two when I have even “wished” that I had a pimple on my face to have the chance to cover it up with our liquid foundation. Well, I’ll be damned if my wish didn’t come [Read more…]
Summertime is here! This time of the year is the best: No school, sunshine, friends, the beach, and so much more! It’s definitely my happy time of the year (well, in addition to my birthday and Christmas, of course). Since my birthday just passed, I wanted to share a few new beauty products that I was gifted. These products are amazing and one of the things I love most about them is that they all smell so wonderful and [Read more…]
I’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…]
Brows 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…]
I 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…]

Listen up, ladies! I have found something that will blow your socks off and make your life just a little bit easier. So, who has some extra chin hair, nose hair, upper lip hair, or eyebrow excess?
As if we don’t have enough places on our bodies that require hair removal, we now have to talk about hair on our faces and how to get rid of it. Ha! It’s a topic that no woman likes to talk about, am I right?
I have found the best tool for getting rid of unwanted hair on your face. Enter the Tinkle Razor – and my short product review. I know, I know, the name is the worst, isn’t it? It makes me giggle every time I see it. [Read more…]
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…]
It’s that time of year where the flowers start to bloom beautiful colors, when the temperatures get a big warmer, the daylight lasts longer, and bright, bold colors are everywhere you look.
No more sweaters, boots, or snow (who am I kidding? It never snows here). Ah, springtime, you make me happy! [Read more…]
