Blush Perfection


$27 for a blush? *Let me just click out of this page right now* HOLD THE PHONE, HEAR ME OUT. I NEVER get excited over a product, yeah I get the occasional "Oh this is super nice" but I am never blown away.

MAC Warm Soul has literally blown me out of the water. This review has been a long  time coming as I have had this blush for 2+ years and you can clearly see that I am no where near hitting pan. A lot of people disregard the mineralize blushes due to the hype, the shimmer, the price, but let me tell you if this blush was $40 I would save up and buy it which says a lot because I am the worlds biggest cheapskate (I think I asked for it for a birthday present...a.k.a. I didn't even buy it for myself.

Here's why this is the best blush in the world for every skin tone, texture, makeup look (warm, cool etc), event:

Travels & Tattoos


Current: I'm sitting in an apartment in Trastevere, Rome. I am sweating like a pig from the heat and humidity here but enjoying every second of it. I am also looking for the words to spit out onto this page but the only thing I can think to write is the word life. By that I mean that the things that have gotten in the way of posting can be simply narrowed down to one thing - life. School, family, friends, traveling....you name it and I've been living it. I can't honestly say "I've been too busy" but what I CAN say is that I have been mostly (the word mostly referring to the unenjoyable tests and school) happy with my life as it is and I have never been able to say that in the past. I'm happy with the people I've surrounded myself with, I have finally mastered (I think) my friendships as they fit more into the family category, I've spent time with almost all of my family, I've been traveling all over the U.S. and Europe, I've hiked, paddle boarded, fallen down a mountain in a major rockslide (and survived obviously), gone wake boarding, been boating, swimming, gone to the beach, seen new places, gotten a tan (amazingly), turned 21 (August 12! not even a week ago) even got a tattoo (well two, but one is smaller) and a lot more but that sums it up pretty much - I even made it to glass beach with my best friend! (Look it up you won't regret it!)

All that being said I think I have made my way back to the blogging world as I have truly missed it. I may not be totally up to date, I don't have the newest blog design, and maybe I have lost readers but if you're still out there thanks for staying and I'm glad to be writing again as I have missed it. I think I have gotten over wanting to be the most popular, have the most followers, have the best design etc. (come on everyone wants that at a time) and I just want to focus on the content (and just have the design user friendly). I would also love to hear what everyone's been doing and since I have been severely out of the loop what I should blog about, what you'd like to see, new ideas, things to change about the appearance of the blog etc. If you have a thought put it in the comments! Thanks again and I hope to hear from you!

Top Dainty Necklaces | Bauble Bar


I gave in to the Bauble Bar hype...and I'm actually really happy that I did because the two necklaces I bought from them have become my two favorite necklaces that I own. They are so dainty and cute that I thought I would share two of my favorite accessories as they go with everything, even though you can buy necklaces that look like your neck would hurt after wearing them...Bauble Bar has a WIDE variety of super high quality jewelry. They have 10% off if it's your first purchase, they send out emails with coupon codes all the time, and you can do the whole "refer a friend thing for points."

I WISH I was sponsored by them, but unfortunately not...right now they have a collection out  designed by Alesandra Ambrosio (the Victoria's Secret model, but we all knew that) and I literally want everything from it, she even has head chains in her collection it's gorgeous.

Mr. Bean Coffee Scrub | Review

Coconut Coffee Scrub - Mr. Bean* $17.95 | €14.95 | £13.95

I'm sure you've all heard of coffee scrubs by now, they've been sweeping across the world like a firestorm, but today I'm reviewing the Mr. Bean Coffee Scrub. The thing I like about coffee scrubs is that they are all natural, and since there is an oil added to get the coffee to basically stick together it is moisturizing and makes taking a fake tan off really easy.

Curl Control Mousse - Moroccan Oil | Review + Demo


Hey everyone! So from the feedback I got on my Cinderella giveaway (still open enter here) where I asked you guys to write in the comments what blog pots you like most, would like to see more of, or want to see in general on my blog and so many people said reviews (some people even said that they'll come and read my reviews before purchasing, so thank you so much for saying that- I am so extremely flattered I can't put it into words). I also know that every time I do a hair product review everyone wants a picture of what my hair looks like, so the followers have spoken (I honestly don't like saying followers...more like friends since I talk to you guys on social media all the time and in the comments) and here is a post on the beautiful Curl Control Mousse by Moroccan Oil that was sent to me from my all time favorite website....Hairtrade of course.

Dark Matter Stack Review | Melt. Cosmetics


Hey everyone! Today I wanted review a super cool product that I have been getting a LOT of use out of lately and since it goes in and out of stock I wouldn't want you to miss out when they restocked it! Melt Cosmetics I think is known for their lipsticks primarily, but recently they have come out with two eyeshadow stacks, Dark Matter and Lovesick (Lovesick is more colorful, but hey I'm a neutral girl and couldn't pass up Blurr). The eyeshadows are cool because they are essentially stacks and magnetize together however you want them to, and the very top "cover" has a little mirror in it.

MAC Cinderella Royal Ball Lipstick | Giveaway


Royal Ball - MAC Cinderella Collection $17.50

Hey everyone! Well I know that there's only one reason that you clicked on this post, and that's because it's a GIVEAWAY!!!! I am so grateful for all of my followers and I wouldn't have ANY of the opportunities that I have without you guys. I love talking to you in the comments, on twitter, and just in general you guys are all so wonderful. I've never had a negative comment come up and for that I am very grateful. Sooooo.....when I saw that I could snag two of the Royal Ball lipsticks and had the money to, hands down no questions asked I was just like YEP doing a giveaway (instead of hoarding it for myself or selling it on eBay, both thoughts that crossed my mind...). I also know that a lot of you missed out due to the whole Debenhams debacle and so I think this giveaway came at an even better time therefore I am making this giveaway international!
