Empties and Lots of Them!

Hi There! How is your day going so far? I hope amazing!! I just wanted to stop in real quick before I have to get ready for work and share my latest video with you. I am currently doing a three part series on Empties, because I have a lot of them!!

I have been saving up this trash for far too long so I thought I better get to filming! It had been so long since I had filmed an empties video that I actually forgot how much I love them!! It is fun to go back and see what products you really enjoyed and would consider purchasing again!

I hope you enjoy the video! It is a long one…you may need a snack!! Xoxo

This Lipstick is Extra Special!

DSC01220

Hi!! I know I am not alone in this… I am totally one of those people who can hear a song and be taken back in time. I can smell a smell and instantly drift away in thought about a story linked to that exact smell. Since I am a makeup lover there are times that even makeup can bring me back to a certain time and place. The lipstick in the above picture is definitely one of those items for me!

Why is this lipstick so special? Well first let me tell you a little about the product. This is the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick by Stila in the shade Fiore. When I went shopping for this lipstick I had some strict criteria. The lipstick had to be long wearing, transfer proof, and BOLD. These three things were all on my checklist for must have qualities! What was the special occasion? It was for my wedding day!!

I know there were people who thought I must be crazy when I told them I wanted to rock a bold and bright pink lipstick for my walk down the isle. Well, they were the crazy ones because it was perfect. This lip totally made my entire bridal look. I don’t regret going bold for even a moment. I also do not regret picking Stila for my bridal lip. I went to Sephora multiple times to get samples and ask for everyone’s opinion on the best long wear and transfer proof lipstick. This was definitely the best choice!

When the priest said “You may now kiss the bride,”  I had no worries and neither did my new hubby! This lipstick seriously stays put. If you are married you know how long your wedding day really is. If you aren’t married, let me warn you that your wedding day is really really long! This lipstick stayed put and was also comfortable. My lipsticks never felt overly dry which is impressive for any liquid lipstick. It did wear off as the day went along, but it wore off in a pretty way, not patchy!

This is not the only great liquid lip I have ever worn. There are other greats out there, but this one forever holds a special place in my makeup collection and heart! I don’t wear it often, but when I do I cannot help, but smile remembering the best day of my life!

…obviously I have to insert a wedding pic to show it off! 😉 Xoxo! Talk soon!!

Short Life Update

faceelf

Hi Everyone! I haven’t forgotten about you! …So here is the deal. Life is about balance and this is something I am not excelling in currently. I am struggling to find that balance for my work-life, home-life, online-life, real-life, and “me time.” The struggle is real!

I promise I won’t give up! I will keep practicing until I find that balance, because practice makes perfect? Right? I sure hope so!!

XOXO. Talk soon!

This is so Much Fun!

Hi! I must say this is the most fun I’ve had in a while with a hobby. It is also the most work I’ve put into a hobby in a long time. Let me tell you, a Youtube channel is a lot of work! I have two jobs and a Youtube channel. Yup, life is crazy, but really this hobby means so much to me!

I have always loved makeup. I wear makeup every day…or basically every day. My latest video is the first time in a while I was able to sit down and just have fun with makeup!! Like I said life is crazy, so I wear makeup, but I don’t get to “play” with it every day. When I get to sit down and just do my thing in my makeup room…ahh it is kind of like my little piece of heaven.

I’ve always been creative, but lost an outlet to be creative with. I had lost that inspiration. I think that is why I enjoy this channel so much! If you want to check out my latest video just take a peak below! Xoxo

Stay Positive <3

Hi Everyone! I know these last two days have been hard. Christina Grimmie’s life was taken, which is hard to believe. Then the very next day the mass Orlando shooting. This blog is not to start debates or wars. It is instead to give people an outlet if their hearts are feeling heavy today, like mine is.

I hope this video gives you 20 minutes to just relax and enjoy. Please stay positive even when it seems too hard! XoXo
