Anti-Aging Skincare- Murad’s Resurgence Line

I’m a Murad Ambassador, but all opinions are my own. I recently read an article that mentioned why Kim Kardashian never smiles- she claims it’s because she doesn’t want to get wrinkles. I think that’s seriously a shame because she has a lot to be happy about, and why not smile? Plus duh, plastic surgery. But […] Read more…

Beauty Resolutions

I wouldn’t call myself the resolution making type, but with the coming of the new year, I definitely welcomed the chance to press the reset button on a few of my goals. I know I’ve talked about it at least a few times here, but debt pay off is a major goal for us this […] Read more…

teadora rainforest at dawn body oil

Teadora Body Oil & Body Butter

Several weeks ago, I gave some Teadora products a whirl. I was pretty impressed with the lip butter and the body polish, so I was excited to try out more of the line. I had already tried out the Rainforest at Dusk scent, so I wanted to try Rainforest at Dawn and the kind people at Teadora sent […] Read more…

5 Minutes to Refreshed and Fabulous

Winter Skincare Staples

Turn on any weather station this week in the midwest and the forecast is likely to read somewhere along the lines of “colder than hell.” I’m not into any winter sports, I hate being cold, I hate hunting, and I hate snow. Boo winter. There’s nothing in it for me. The only things about colder […] Read more…

Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette

  press samples, affiliate links As promised, this week is basically “matte eyeshadow palette week” on the blog which makes me unsure which I deserve more- a high five or to be slapped for having enough matte eyeshadow to take up several days of posting. I am leaning toward high five though, because this palette […] Read more…

Becca Ombre Nudes Palette

I am loving a nude color palette, and specifically mattes over the past few months. When I bought the Naked Basics palette a couple years ago, I never figured it would become one of my favorites. At the time, I didn’t own many matte shades so I thought I would give them a whirl. I […] Read more…
