Last week, after being in the beauty industry for over 15 years, I finally got to try something I have never done before! I got eyelash extensions! I’ve had the chance over the years, but something always stopped me from taking the leap, the cost, the process, the time involved, I don’t know. But last week, my friend Amanda and I, took the plunge at Amazing Lash Studio in Mission Valley!Continue Reading
I’m getting smarter in my old age. My birthday is in 4 weeks and I will be *gasp!* 35! My 30’s honestly, have been my favorite so far, so I am quite looking forward to 35. Routine has become a huge part of my life recently, I find that with it I can get a lot more done, and since my goals this year are all about FOCUS, routine has helped me immensely. Funny how that works, eh?Continue Reading
Cash is the best gift. Seriously. When my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I just told her cash. Gift cards are great too, but cash allows you to use it on anything you need. I had planned on spending my Christmas Cash on a brand new camera, but my amazing husband surprised me with it as my Christmas gift! (Isn’t he the best!?) So with a nice chunk of change for Christmas in my hands I headed to Sephora because I had a list of new pretties I had been pining over.Continue Reading

This summer has really taken a toll on my skin. I’ve always had issues with my nose being red, but this summer it has been a lot worse. I used to have a really complicated skincare routine, but I’ve dialed it back in the warmer months to give my skin a break and I’ve been pretty happy with my new results. My nose is still red, but it’s less puffy and angry in the morning, and I’ve noticed less breakouts and less blemishes, which is a win, right?Continue Reading
You know me by now. I LOVE MAKEUP. It’s a sick obsession. But it makes me feel pretty, so I’ll allow it. Recently I decided to try ColourPop Cosmetics, I’ve seen them allllll over Instagram, heard about them in haul videos, tutorials, and from lots of other color obsessed makeup junkies. So I bit the bullet and ordered me some ColourPop.Continue Reading
OK OK OK, so I know that I usually post my Current Obsessions on Sundays – but yesterday was just too crazy busy to get anything extra done in time to post. I helped host a baby shower for one of my best friends and this weekend was all about getting that done and handled. So today it is. Right now, I am super obsessed with eyebrows. Maintaining them, shaping them, and making sure they don’t look ridiculous. Below are some of my favorite brow products in my giant arsenal of brow products. I have a few for different levels of ability and some in different price points, so you should be able to find something that works perfectly for you!Continue Reading
I first heard about Gerard Cosmetics from Jaclyn Hill. She’s this faboo YouTube Makeup Guru, and if you’ve never heard of her, check her out. She’s super cool, really nice (and goofy like me!) and she’s got insane taste in all things pretty. So naturally she’s my beauty spirit animal and I trust her advice explicitly. She’s got a line with Gerard Cosmetics and has made some beautiful colors, and I’ve wanted to get some for awhile. While this “haul” isn’t huge, it’s a pretty decent bit of lippy love, so I wanted to share it will all you lovelies!Continue Reading
To say that my current obsession with Makeup Geek is new would be a gigantic farce, and I would be one big fat liar. In fact this love affair has been going on for just under a year, and it’s not only current, but quite alive and vibrantly healthy. If you’ve never heard of this Indie Makeup brand, that’s been called “Better than MAC” by more than one internet beauty guru, you’re in for a treat. All I can say is, when I tried these products, I never looked back and our torrid love affair is still as passionate as ever.Continue Reading
Y’all know me! Trying makeup is the best thing ever. I love it! I can’t say no to it! I jump at the chance to try any kind of makeup, because you really never know when you’ll find that one amazing gem in the bathroom drawer full of duds. And brow products? Don’t even get me started! Big, bold brows have made such a comeback the last year, and I myself am SO GLAD for it, because friends don’t let friend have bad brows!
