Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection // Giveaway!

Over and over again I’ve heard people buzzing about the new releases to the Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection this past December. I was fortunate enough to nab a few goodies on launch night via, despite the mass amount of traffic that was slowing their site down and making it incredibly hard to check out.

In typical me fashion, I wanted to take a little time to be able to try out the products fully so that I can give you my honest thoughts. I’d hate to make recommendations or express displeasure with something that I end up changing my mind on a later date, which is why I wanted to write out the good, bad, and ugly about this collection.

So first off: the elephant in the room. If you’re someone who follows “makeup drama” on social media and YouTube, then you might have heard about the shipping “scandal.” I was not affected by this, as I believe it was only those who ordered the eyeshadow palette. I can’t give a first-hand account of how my customer service experience was because my order shipped about two business days after placing it (on December 17th), and then I received the product on December 21st via FedEx, so I didn’t need to contact customer service. My order arrived well packaged with everything I ordered inside.

Now that we’re past the elephant in the room, let’s get to the good stuff! The products themselves, of course.

What to Wear on New Years Eve: Outfit + Makeup // Giveaway!

Can you believe it’s almost 2017?! I don’t know where the time has gone. I hope you and yours had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate, and were able to enjoy some time off for the holidays. I’m so happy that I have this week off work, and I’ve been using my time to plan ahead on blogging and vlogging things for 2017. Today I thought I would share what to wear on New Year’s Eve, no matter what you have planned!

What to Wear on New Years Eve

Sweater: Mackenzie Mock Neck Pull Over c/o J.Jill
Skirt: Pleated Gold Skirt via Target {Yes, this is a girl’s skirt. I’m wearing an XL, which fits like woman’s small but could probably also accommodate a medium.}
Bag: Urban Expressions Brooklyn Vegan Leather Clutch via Stitch Fix
Necklace: Kendra Scott Phara Tassel Lariat Necklace
Ring: Kendra Scott Boyd Drusy Ring
Shoes: Xappeal via Rack Room Shoes {similar under $100, similar under $50}

I went shopping a few days before Christmas, and one of my goals was to find a cute metallic skirt for my New Year’s Eve Outfit. Truth be told, we’re not doing anything super crazy for the holiday; our annual tradition is watching a movie while indulging in Ezell’s Fried Chicken. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to get a little dressed up, so I’ll definitely be rocking this cute little skirt and a sweater to keep me cozy. I finally found what I was looking for at Target, in the girl’s section no less! If you can believe it, this is a girl’s size extra large, and it fits perfectly on my petite frame! Continue reading

Winter Hair Care Routine

I realized the power of hair and beauty products on the first day of the fifth grade. Sounds weird, right? But hear me out. I remember trying a sample of Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner from the newspaper on my first day of fifth grade. My parents have always been frugal. My dad was a grocer – he loved clipping coupons and finding a deal so I, too, have always been on the hunt for affordable, quality products. When Pantene reached out to me, I was excited to work with them!

Using that sample was my attempt at feeling more like a grown up, as to me, Pantene had always been out of reach. I knew Pantene from TV commercials, where beautiful women went from frizzy and lackluster hair to beautiful, long, shiny locks. I lathered, and I rinsed, and I conditioned, and I rinsed, and I went to bed hoping that in the morning, my hair would look just like those women on TV.

New(ish) in Drugstore Cosmetics // First Impressions

I can’t be the only one who loves creeping the cosmetics aisle anytime you find yourself at Target, or you know, on an intentional shopping trip to Ulta. Whatever. One of my favorite things to do is to peek at the drugstore cosmetics recent releases, and sometimes a few things catch my eye. Such was the case with the Maybelline Grafitti Nudes Palette, which was apparently released exclusively at Ulta.

When I saw it, I knew I had to see what kind of color pay-off Maybelline had up their sleeve. After all, drugstore cosmetics aren’t really notorious for highly pigmented eyeshadow palettes, so naturally, I had to try it out. Along with the Graffiti Palette, I decided to gather a bunch of goodies that I hadn’t used yet, try them all out, and take photos along the way and share my thoughts with you about them.

Natural Makeup Tutorial + Review // Giveaway!

It’s been about a year since I started using Juice Beauty skincare, and now I can say I’ve added their makeup to my arsenal too. While I don’t go 100% natural with my skincare or makeup products on an everyday basis, having options that perform that are kind to my body is kind of the greatest thing ever.

When it comes to what I’m putting on my skin (the largest organ of the body, after all) I most definitely want to put the best on it. For me, that has meant ingredients that do what they say they’ll do (mostly hydrate and provide anti-aging benefits at this point in my life) without costing a ton of money. I mean, I still need to have money for clothes after all!

juice-beauty-natural-makeup-tutorial Disclosure: Product for consideration was sent by Juice Beauty but I was not obligated to make this post or video. Some links in this post may be affiliate and I may make a small commission at no cost to you.

I’d say Juice Beauty covers both my criteria with their makeup and skincare, plus some. I thought it would be fun to share a natural makeup tutorial for what I’ve been wearing for the past month or so on an every day, wear to work basis, and my thoughts on the products since I’ve been able to test them out thoroughly. If you’re interested in even more skincare reviews from the Juice Beauty line specifically, you can read my original review here. Be sure to read to the end to win a set of products to try for yourself too! :)
