Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit

When it comes to false lashes, where do I even start? I think they’re awesome, but for some reason I find it nearly impossible to put them on myself. Even the lashes with self-adhesive backing. I’m so awkward sometimes. So, basically I don’t wear them unless a pro applies them. That’s why I was really excited to try out Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Instant Lash Extension Kit. Physician’s Formula claims that you get the most incredible “life changing” lash results, without having to deal with what comes along with false lashes. And that in just 2 minutes you should have…

Review / Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel

No matter what season we’re in, there’s always a reason to keep pumpkin skin care products in your life. Yes, I’m about that pumpkin. I know the founder behind the Protective Nourishment skin care line and she recently gave me a few goodies to try out. I wrote a review on her Blueberry Scrub Mask here. This time, I tried out the Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel.

2 Natural and Easy DIY Hair Masks

This post is sponsored by Northgate Markets.
No excuses guys! I have found 2 of the easiest and natural DIY hair masks possibly ever. I know that’s a bold statement to make. I was inspired by a tour of Northgate Markets here in Southern California. I blame it all on the fresh veggies and fruits that caught my eye with their stunning colors. I’m hoping the next time you walk into your local market, you’re going to look at your produce department a lot differently.

Beauty Buzz / Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter

As the fall leaves tumble into the days of winter, one thing is guaranteed to happen—dry skin. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan. In fact, I hate it. This is when I bust out my beloved body butters. One that I have happily added to my winter skin regime is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Be Comforted Warm Apple Crisp. I really wish this was a scratch-and-sniff kind of post, because this stuff smells amaze! But does it work?

My Beauty Favorites / Burt’s Bees

You’ve all heard the phrase “the bee’s knees” haven’t you? It became popular in the 1920’s as a way to describe something as being excellent. That’s kind of how I feel about these Burt’s Bees products. To me, they are the bee’s knees. And they are perfect year-round. But, I especially love them during the fall and winter seasons. Here are this month’s beauty favorites.

Beauty Buzz / Urban Decay (Eyes)

I wouldn’t say I was obsessed with Urban Decay…OK…maybe a little bit. Just a tiny bit. Can you blame me? They are pretty amazing. I was just invited to a little blogger preview last month where I was able to get my hands on a few of their newest products. I was in UD heaven! I wanted to share a few of them with you today.

Beauty Buzz / WEN Cleansing Conditioner

Wen-Curve-and-Chaos-1
We’ve all seen the WEN Hair Care commercials with founder Chaz Dean—haven’t we? He’s a Hollywood celebrity hair stylist with a booming salon. Seems like an awesome product. But his promise of “Say Goodbye to Lather™” has me a little worried. I mean…no lather? I guess I had to try the WEN Cleansing Conditioner out for myself. I was sent a sample and put it to the test.
