glossybox glamglow giveaway

I know I say this every time around this time of the year but I honestly and truly (insert Joanne the scammer’s voice) I cannot believe Christmas is in just a few days. I know I’ve been neglecting my favorite beauty girls *points at you* because I haven’t posted any beauty goodness in forever. If you’re following me on social media you know I haven’t sat down since October.

But before I head out on my last trip of 2016, I’ve got a special treat for you beauties just before Christmas. I’ve collaborated with GLOSSYBOX and GLAMGLOW for their #12DaysofGLOSSY giveaway and SEVEN of you will win a set valued at $342: View Full Post

instagram GIG Freebie

It’s time for another #GIGFreebie (via Instagram).

Here’s a fact about beauty bloggers/editors. We cannot possibly use all of this stuff. I’ve got a closet full of fabulous beauty products at home, and another three closets at work filled to the top. It’s officially time for me to pass along my gems to my favorite people. You! (duh)

The products in this giveaway is totally random. I am picking one (maybe two) US residents and sending them a box of goodies. I’m just gonna throw stuff in a box. Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, CoverFX, Make Up For Ever, NARS–you name it I’ve got it and now it can be yours!

Here’s how to enter the giveaway!

When’s the last time you stopped to look at a flower sprouting from the concrete? Or gazed up at the massive city buildings in awe?
