    go to gurus

    I’ve been on a makeup buying rager lately. I think it’s a side effect of my weight loss because maybe I’m seeing more results that I actually realize. But, I also have to point a finger at YouTube. Watching beauty videos have been part of my nightly routine for almost 10 years now. Over the years, the faces on my screen may have changed, but the love of makeup is the same. Since I’m not inconsiderate and would love it if you joined me on my makeup buying joyride, I’m sharing my go-to dealers gurus with you today. That’s what makeup junkies do, right? #friendshelpingfriends So without further adieu… I’ve…

    lashing out

    Orange juice & champagne Me & Harry Styles Kim & naked mirror selfies Some things are just better together. A few weeks ago I came home from work and found a package waiting for me. Due to a recent online shopping spree, my roommates weren’t entirely convinced that I had no idea where this box came from. Anyway, when I checked the return address to see if it could jog any memories of where I might have clicked the check out button while half-asleep, I noticed it was from the good people of Esqido! MY FIRST PR PACKAGE! Well, my first surprise PR package. Po-Tay-To, Po-Tah-To. ICYMI, Esqido reached out to…

    masters of lash

    I’ve tried for a week to write this post but I’ve had a very hard time figuring out how to start it. I’ve been waiting for the stroke a genius to hit me, but quite frankly, I’m too excited to tell you guys about this so I’m just going to skip the cutesy intro and jump right in. Before Christmas, I received an email from Esqido, a false lash company based in Canada. They asked if I would like to try some of their lashes and their glue. Not knowing anything about false lashes, I said “Sure! Send me some!”. Esqido lashes aren’t your run of the mill falsies. They’re made…

    thoughts from a youtube addict

    Lately I’ve been toying with the idea of making Youtube videos. By toying, I mean that I’ve thought about it, remembered that I hate how my voice sounds on camera, realized I’d have to edit the videos, and then ultimately decided against it. Added to that is the fact that I’m not a consistent blogger so I probably wouldn’t be a consistent vlogger and my life is so painfully boring I wouldn’t want to watch it – it’s bad enough that I have to live it. All of this being said, there are people who do actually keep up with making videos, boring life and all. I’ll admit, I looove watching them.…

    Blogtober14 Day 24: beauty products that i can’t live without

    It’s not a bore, it’s day 24! If you saw my post from day 20, you know that my love for makeup runs deep. So imagine my excitement when I realized that I would be able to dedicate another post to it. “One (yea, right) beauty product I can’t live without”. I’ve been using those skincare products that I wrote about a few days ago and I have to say, I really like them. My skin is really soft and the dark circles under my eyes have lessened. I think I need to look into something that will get rid of dark spots since I have some on my chin…
