How to Refresh Dry Summer Hair | Giveaway

Summer is almost over and it’s hopefully left you with fun memories and a maybe even a great tan…if that’s your kind of thing. Or you could be left with dry and brittle hair from the chlorine, sun, salt water, hair products, and even heat styling. Now, I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru. But, more like a beauty realist. I know we come from all kinds of walks of life and different hair types. So, as I sat on my couch reflecting on what I can do to refresh my hair for the upcoming fall season. That’s when I thought…

Beauty Buzz | Angel Shave Club Review

I’ll never forget being a teen and begging my mom to let me shave my legs. Little did I know all that came along with it. Like the constant and expensive upkeep for someone hairy like me. If you buy razors on the regular, you know how pricey they are. I’ve seen razor blade refills for as much as $20 for a refill box of four. That’s kind of ridiculous. I don’t know about you, but sometimes my budget doesn’t allow me to buy those. I end up getting stuck with the cheap “one use only” razors. This is where…

Cruelty-Free Beauty | 5 Summer Favorites

Whenever I describe what I do as a blogger, I always mention that I like to review beauty products. And in no way shape or form, am I a “beauty guru.” This means I’m not a professional in the industry nor do I pretend to be one. I feel like I started pretty late in life when it comes to hoarding and spending all of my money on beauty products. Sometimes, I love what I buy and sometimes I don’t. It’s that simple. When I do love something, I make sure to share it with you guys here! That being…

Beauty Buzz Circa Beauty

When I heard Eva Mendes was coming out with her own line of beauty products, I wasn’t expecting much. We all know how celebrity brands have performed in the past. But, I’m happy to report that I am pleasantly surprised with the CIRCA Beauty products I was sent to try out. Everything was pretty close to professional quality with it’s rich pigments—at drugstore prices. Only my eyes, lips, and cheeks were lucky this time around. I definitely want to get my hands on the brushes and foundations. Just so you know, CIRCA is exclusive to Walgreens. My fave so far is…

My Blushington Experience

It’s time for real talk guys. I’m no makeup pro by any means. I was that teenager whose mom didn’t allow her to wear makeup until she was a senior in high school. So I did what any teen would do, I snuck it on at school then took it off before I got home. And that was just lipstick and powder. In fact, I really never had anyone teach me how to wear it. Everything I know today is through learning from others. Oh hey beauty guru angels! So, when Blushington offered to do my makeup, I was practically…

Giveaway Osmosis Skincare Hydralift Firming Gel Mask (Closed)

As I sat down to write this post, I started thinking about skin types and how each of us is so different from the next. You might have oily skin and the person sitting next to you might have dry skin. I’m the one with combination skin. Then I started thinking about skin care routines and how that varies too. Even though we might differ in these areas, I’m pretty sure we all have the same concerns when it comes to aging skin. OK, I’m not losing sleep over here about it, but I do like to care for the…

I consider myself a pretty loyal girl. If I like you and you don’t do me wrong—I’ll keep you around for the long haul. That’s pretty much how it is with the beauty products in my life.

Then there are other products that come into my life via the friendly ladies at Sephora or through my amazing friends. For them, I am so very thankful. Right now…at…

Each one is creamy when applied, but comes to an…
