New Makeup Favorites

Happy Friday!  A few of my favorite new (or at least recent) releases have fallen through the cracks!  I’ve shared them on Instagram, but with the summer being so busy, I never wrote about them on the good ole’ blog.  I’ve become more and more particular (okay, picky) when it comes to makeup – not […]

Favorites from Integrity Botanicals

Sometimes, I look at my product closet, and I find a perfect, cohesive story (i.e. 5 awesome bronzers you need to try).  Other times when I look, all I can see are some amazing products that are completely unrelated – that I really want to talk about.  Today is one of those days.  Integrity Botanicals […]

My Winter Face, 2016

Happy Thursday!  A few of you have been asking for my “Winter Face”.  We change our wardrobes seasonally, and we should really do the same with our cosmetics.  Different formulas work best during different times of the year, and changing up our go-to colors seasonally does wonders for perking up our complexions.  I usually gravitate towards […]
