3 Things–Spring Beauty

3 Things–Spring Beauty

It's that time again---SPRING is here! For me, that means spring cleaning my house AND my makeup collection. Now's the time of year where I ask myself if I absolutely am in love with a product or if I'm just hoarding things to own them.

3 Things: Happy Easter

3 Things: Happy Easter

When I was a kid, I always loved Easter. I mean, you woke up, came downstairs and there was a basket FILLED WITH TOYS AND CANDY waiting for you. That supposedly a rabbit brought you! I mean, Santa is a reach, but a rabbit bringing children baskets of chocolate and jelly beans is really just insane. And you got to…

Eyes on MAC review, and a MAC Eye Shadow Finish Guide

Pizzazz-Packing Eye Shadow Palettes Promise to Bewitch Is there anything so lovely as a perfectly curated eye palette? The world is filled with palettes of half-usable shadows and half-wasted hues. I’ve had the best of luck with neutral palettes, but always long for a touch of pizzazz. So you know who does neutral plus pizzazz palettes phenomenally? MAC, of course!…

3 Things: Spring Cleaning

3 Things: Spring Cleaning

Spring has sprung and this girl is in the midst of her spring cleaning. (Boo!) While some people are enjoying spring break, the only thing breaking here is my psyche. Because if I have to wash one more window, I'm gonna lose it, y'all. Sincerely. And it's going to be EPIC. I will say, this is a more intensive spring…
NINE new formulas from Herbal Essences bio:renew

NINE new formulas from Herbal Essences bio:renew

If ever there was ever a haircare line that deserved to be called iconic, it’s Herbal Essences. I can still picture the pretty label on my mom’s bottle of their original shampoo, back when they just had one product (the singularly named “herbal essence”). And who can forget their kind-of-naughty 1990’s “totally organic experience” commercials? If you’re an American woman,…
