aussie-moist-shampoo-review-1

I’ve been traveling for what seems like non-stop since this summer. I visited Belize, then Vegas for the Soul Train Awards, then Costa Rica for a much-needed solo retreat and now I am back in New York trying to catch up on life! While I’ve had a freaking blast seeing the world it was actually my hair that has paid the price of my amazing time. I don’t know how we got here, maybe it’s the airplane air, but it’s been super hard to keep the moisture in my hair. And please let’s not talk about the lack of shine it possesses.  View Full Post

From pet treats, to stay-all-day mascara, to bacon every month boxes (yes this is a real thing, Google it) there’s absolutely no shortage of subscription boxes out there. So I take my job really seriously when I review these boxes and spread the word on which ones are worth your hard earned coins.

My beauty routine has certainly changed throughout the years. In my twenties, I barely used any beauty products at all. I was the most basic beauty girl you would have known. MAC lipglass was my only staple and I loved lining my lips with brown liner (this was my pre-blending stage). In my thirties, I tried absolutely everything anyone sent me. Joys/perks of being a beauty blogger. It didn’t matter what it was, if it promised to do something I wanted to try out (oh, check out my Buy or Nah series). Now as I head into my forties (holy lipstick how did I get here so fast!) I am really particular with what I put on my face and body. Even though I will be the guinea pig for you guys, you just can’t trust all of them! That’s why I’ve partnered with Dove to share with you one product I’m constantly And when I comes to what products I'm buying over and over again. Because …umm yea, I am selective with my coin spending! View Full Post

MAC RETRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICKS

Here’s what you should know. I am a beauty junkie, first and foremost. More specifically, I love makeup. And if I am being ONE HUNNIT, I cannot (more like will not) stop buying lipsticks. It’s a really good chance that I have all of these colors from another brand but yet when something is new I need to try it and I’d prefer to be the first.

In this instance, MAC Cosmetics has no idea that my blog exists so they don’t send me stuff. I know “cry me a river” right! Anyways at $20 a pop, I only decided to try one of the new Retro Matte Lipsticks from MAC. Because…$20 G!  View Full Post

Makeup has always been the forefront of my beauty routine. I remember being grounded for sneaking my mother’s red lipstick to school and wearing her favorite rouge lippie on picture day (don’t ask me what I was thinking)! But as an adult I’ve been searching for more ways to cut down the time I spend in the bathroom. I share a cozy one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend so you can imagine what are arguments consist of. How long I am in the bathroom! And why he didn’t put the toilet seat down!

Now that I am in my last year of my thirties, I love products that still give me that youthful glow and easily convince people that I am not a day over 25. #LiesTheyTell
