L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara


I usually gravitate toward Maybelline mascara on my drugstore makeup runs, but L'Oreal's newest Miss Manga mascara recently found it's way into my shopping basket.  I think it's the cutesy name and the fact that I have no clue what it means, but I was intrigued! Check it out...

Have You Ever Had Blogger's Block?

I am hiding my face behind my unmanicured hands in between keystrokes, because I am embarrassed of my recent lack of blogging.  I've been MIA, and to those of you who were frequenting my blog for my hops or posts, I sincerely apologize!
Vacation photon from Massenuten, VA
I've been at this blogging thing for a few years now, and even that still surprises me that people actually read my blog!  Maybe at some point you've experienced this too, but I've been a little lost.  Call it writers block, soul searching, lack of inspiration, whatever you want, but it got the best of me!

June Ipsy Glam Bag

It's been a while blogger!  I am back in the saddle after a little blogging hiatus, and I apologize for not at least getting my blog hops up :(  I've been very busy trying to get my husband's website, FB page, and branding in order for his construction business, that I've neglected my own things.  It's a ton of work, especially since I used  Wordpress and had no clue how to navigate it.  Anyway, I am back to blogging and hopping, and hope you can understand my brief disappearance.  Thank you!

On to the fun stuff… I wanted to share my Ipsy bag this month since it was such a goody! I cancelled my Sample Society so will only be getting Ipsy until I decide if I want to try another.         Here's what June's "Pretty in Paradise" Ipsy bag had in store for me….

Two Scary Beauty Treatments You Shouldn't Fear



Two commonly feared beauty treatments by reputation are waxing and chemical peels.  You've most likely heard of these, and at least one probably elicits fight or flight (um brazilian wax). There are quite many benefits to peels and waxing, safe options, and some so easy you can do them in the comforts of your own home, so they can't be that bad right? Check it out….

Warm It Up-Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Ave Princess

Despite the chilly weather here in Ohio it's Spring, so I am easing myself into the sun kissed skin routine with a bit of bronzer.  Bronzer can be used to contour the face, warm your winter foundation to match summer tan, or just give skin that goddess glow.

Recently, Ulta held their 21 days of beauty event in which each day features an awesome deal on one or two skin or makeup products.  I scored a few good deals, and one was the Amazonian Clay Bronzer in Park Ave Princess from Tarte. This originally retails for $29, but was on sale for $14, score!!.  Check it out...

Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream Review



A BB cream is a multi-functioning Beauty Balm that typically helps even out skin tone, hydrate, correct, and conceal or cover, but varies by brand.  Jergens brought the BB to the body, and having some body issues myself, I couldn't wait to try it out.  It's the kind of issues that I made my peace with long ago, but any chance that I can try to lessen the appearance of the dread inheritance of spider and varicose veins, lumpy bumpy cellulite, and the not so toned rear end issues, I am on it.  Yes, I just got very real. Thanks womanhood!

Chocolate and Smokey-Featuring the Lorac Pro Palette

Hi! It's me..
and for the love of my craft, you get to see me at 7:30 am no makeup, fresh out of the shower, blotchy, and  scary. Then, about 40 minutes later all made up looking much less scary. The magic of makeup is a fun and beautiful thing that I love to share, which is why you may see before and afters from time to time here on the blog.  I can at least attribute the yellowish skin tone in the before to the lighting, but the rest is all me. 

Anywho, I picked up this bad boy a little after Christmas...
and I recently used it to create one of my favorite looks, the chocolate smokey eye that you see in the above after shot.  Check it out:

Child of Wild Jewelry- My Current Obsession

Photo from Child of Wild Facebook page

There's something so pure and earthy about the pieces that come from Child of Wild that has me completely smitten.  They're incredibly beautiful, culturally inspired necklaces, rings, bracelets, head pieces, and accessories. It reminds me of an Indian goddess, meets Gypsy princess, and flower child all rolled in to one.  Curious yet? Check it out….

Described on their website as, a "muted red with pink shimmer", New York Apple is the most gorgeous reflective, bold red.  Check it out…

Change is in the Air

Meet Me on the Brightside

You may or my not have noticed that I've been a bit design happy, and it's the second time I've changed my blog design in the last week or so. 

I promise, I completely love this new feminine floral blog look, and it soothes my Spring fever brought on by the single digit weather we've had here in Ohio. Blah!  Anyway, I won't be changing it any time soon, unless it's adding to the overall theme. 

In addition the the new design, I have a new button! Feel free to replace the old with the new, or keep the old one if you'd like.  I will also be making the blog hops a little fancier, I hope you all like :)

Covergirl Bombshell Volume Mascara by Lashblast Review

You've seen the commercials and magazine ads where Sofia Vergara is all glammed up, and the advertisement tells us how we can get the most amazing Bombshell lashes just from this mascara, blah blah blah. Then, you look closely and there's a little notation at the bottom that Sofia is wearing the Bombshell mascara and falsies.  Hmmm? Am I surprised? No! I am well aware that most ads are doctored up quite a bit to make products look as wonderful as possible by any means necessary. 

So how "Bombshell" is Covergirl's newest mascara, really? Check it out...

One of the many things I love about the beauty superstore Sephora are the freebies. When you're a Beauty Insider, which is their free rewards program, you can come in on or around your birthday, and they'll gift you a little sample set of products as one of the member perks.  It's no purchase necessary and is different every year.  Last year's b-day perk introduced me to the fabulous Benefit Whatts Up highlighter that has become one of my absolute favorites!!
