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!
