Today kicks off my Makeup Mondays looks for this month and I am so excited to bring you some fun holiday looks that cater to all range of skills.

This look uses one palette and only three shades. You can build up the intensity if you wish, but it’s pretty simple and can be recreated with any neutral palette you may own.

I hope you all enjoyed this look and stay tune for the other more fun/playful looks I have for you all throughout the Fridays in December.

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday!

Spring Wreath DIY

IMG_0050

Happy Monday Everyone! 

Today I am sharing with you one of my first spring DIYs. I started this DIY last year and never actually finished it. Call me level 10 procrastinator, but sometimes things happen and you have to put projects away until next year and that is exactly what happened. All of the supplies I use are actually very affordable. The flowers come from the dollar store and the wire base comes from Walmart for a few bucks. I used floral wire and my glue gun to secure it in place.

Have a great day! See you on Wednesday.

March Favorites 2018

IMG_9875

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my March Favorites. I have been testing quite a few new products and I am excited to share them with you. I feel like this month I had such a good routine going when it came to my skincare and makeup. I am really excited for spring to hopefully make an appearance this April. Is that too much to ask for a little bit of warm weather?

As you will see I have been trying out a few new products that are natural and good for your skin. They come from this small shop in Harrisonburg, VA. You can check them here if you want to learn more.

I’m currently trying out two new different makeup products from with simplicity and I have been enjoying the new additions to my makeup routine. I picked up their dry or wet eye shadow product in Latte and their mineral matte foundation.

I finally got around to painting my nails and picking up a new perfume which you can read more about here. I returned to my tried and true mascara from Maybelline the Colossal Volume’ Express Cat Eye edition. The last and final product that completely blew me away this month was the Black Radiance Perfect Tone Matte Lip Creme in Berry Naked.

Like I mentioned earlier I have been killing it with my skincare routine this month and I owe all of that to my new face wash from with simplicity. I also picked up the boscia no pores no shine T-zone treatment that has been helping me keep my T-zone shine free throughout the day. Last but not least I have been taking my eye makeup off with the Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads these have been part of my routine for quite some time.

I hope you all enjoyed my March favorites and that you all have a great start to April. I’m excited to see what new adventures and things I discover this upcoming month.

What were some of your favorite products for March? Anything you would recommend me try out?

Have a great Friday! See you all on Monday.

Happy Monday Everyone!

What I love about using my flat iron is that I never get the same looking curl. It gives my hairstyle a more organic look which is what I am loving right now.

Have a great day and I will see you on Wednesday.
