Haul Time: Hair Supplies, Snacks, and More

For this haul, I stopped by two Marshall’s and Home Goods locations, Steinmart, and Fresh Thyme market. I needed a new hair dryer with a diffuser.  I was attracted to this lilac colored Revlon dryer. It only came with a smoothing concentrator, so I’ll have to buy a diffuser. It’s 1875 watts, has 3 heat…

IPSY Bag-October 2018

This month’s IPSY bag is perfect for the Halloween season and beyond. It’s a red clutch with a masquerade mask. I’ll be using it immediately. Tarte has sparked a lot of controversy over its lack of darker shades for women of color. I’ve heard a lot of great things about this concealer. This is the…

Fall Decor for Less

I don’t usually decorate for the Fall. I just skip right past to Halloween, but this year I decided to go all out for the season.  Of course, I did it on a budget. This look was so simple. I bought the green and orange bottles at the Dollar Tree along with the cotton plant…

Sephora PlayBox-October 2018

I believe I’ve given all my eye cream samples away, so I’ll put this one to use right away. I love Philosophy beauty products. Tarte hydrating primer. Thanks to these subscription boxes, I never buy primer. This one will be used accordingly. Benefit Gimme Brow in the color 5. I love this stuff and often…
