    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…

    scratching the makeup itch

    I don’t wear makeup to work much anymore. Lately, I’ve been getting the itch, but then I realize that I could put off getting out of bed for an extra 20 minutes if I don’t scratch it. I was trolling YouTube, as I do to live vicariously through people who don’t go to work looking like they were hit by a truck on their way in, and I found a beauty survey and thought that I’d fill it out here. Maybe help to scratch the itch. 1. How often do you wear a full face of makeup? (foundation, eyeshadow, contour… THE WORKS) More often than not, if I’m doing my…

    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…

    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…

    cukoo for kiko!

    Day 19’s prompt was “Your biggest fear”. Yea, no. My biggest fears are either too depressing or too embarrassing to talk about with the internet. So in lieu of that post, I decided to talk about a new cosmetic line that I’ve recently come across. What better way to spend Columbus Day other than shopping? Spending Columbus Day just taking what we want, that’s what. Anyway, we took a ride to the Staten Island mall and were ready to shop. We headed over to JCPenney first, where we all usually have success. I, however, did not have success but that’s for a different post. As we walked down towards Penney’s…
