Drug Store Makeup that I Love!

I subscribe to several monthly makeup boxes, so admittedly I have loads of makeup. I haven’t needed to buy mascara in years. I usually get a sample that does a decent job. I was in Meijer the other day when I decided I needed a new mascara. One that does better than just a decent…

A New “Natural” Look

I recently decided to stop getting relaxers and wear my hair as it grows out of my head…curly and coily. I’ve done this before. About ten years ago, I had a health issue that thinned my normally thick hair. I decided to wear weaves while my hair recovered. Soon my hair grew back longer than…

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…

This is one of my favorite soap companies because you get a…

Bath & Body Works Haul: Pumpkin Fever!

It’s heading into fall and that means everything pumpkin.  I’ve already purchased some of my favorite Bath & Body Works’ pumpkin candles: Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, Pumpkin Cupcake, and Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow. Yummy. I still have to purchase Caramel Pumpkin Swirl. I also purchased loads of delicious wallflower scents: Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Pumpkin Pecan Waffles, and…

Ipsy Bag July 2018

This month’s IPSY bag was another dazzler. The $10 a month subscription pays for itself with this gorgeous bag. Toss a lipgloss, credit card, and a cell phone in the bag and go. Smashbox Studio Skin concealer I’ve heard good things about this concealer, but I’ll probably give it away.  The color is too light, and…
