Blog Sale Updated

I’ve been going through my makeup drawers and found some stuff to add to my blog sale that either didn’t work out for me or I just never reach for. All items are new or gently used. Check out the updated sale HERE! I will be adding a few handbags within the next week, but I will be sure to let you know when I do.

Happy Shopping!

A Little Time Off….

Hello Friends! I just wanted to do a little post to let you know that I will be taking a little break from the blog and YouTube for about a week. Therefore I will not be posting any new material and may be a little slow responding to comments. As you may already know, my husband and I have been getting a house built for quite some time now and it is finally almost done! Thank God! This week I will be doing all sorts of things to prepare for my move and get our current house ready for renters. Unfortunately that leaves no time for blog posts! I hope you understand. While I’m gone, feel free to check out some of my archived posts! Talk to you soon!

Budget Beauty: E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadows


E.L.F. products can be extremely hit or miss for me, especially their eyeshadows. If you have ever purchased one of their 100 pan eyeshadow palettes, then I’m sure you know what I mean. Recently, they released these new baked eyeshadows and blushes. I saw the shadows in Target, so I decided to pick up 2 to try out. Keep reading for my thoughts on them!

Tip Tuesday #14: Fix Your Broken Powders


I absolutely hate when I drop a makeup product and the product shatters. Unfortunately that has happened to me on more than one occasion. Today’s Tip Tuesday post is about fixing a broken powder product such as an eyeshadow or blush. I just recently tried this for the first time, so I thought I would share it with you. Keep reading if you are interested in seeing what I did!

Update! I Made an Error!

This is just a really quick post because I just realized that I made a huge mistake on one of my previous posts. My review on the NARS Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil listed the price as $34, when it should have been $24. I’m very sorry and I hope I didn’t discourage any of you who may have been thinking about getting it. I have corrected the pricing now.

Thanks for understanding!
