I’ve Been a Horrible Friend Lately, And Here’s How I’m Hoping to Change

This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I have a confession to make. I’ve been a horrible friend, but not on purpose. Since January 3rd my life has been devoted strictly to getting the elephant out of the room, that elephant being my Ph.D. dissertation. I’ve been locked in my house with eyes glazed over in front of my computer just typing away giving little care to what’s going on in the outside world. While my friends understand how important it is for me to get this part of my life…

Here’s Why I’m loving Face Mask Cocktails aka Multimasking

I’ve been talking a lot about skincare lately and so today I wanted to focus on a skincare product that’s not getting as much love as it used to now that Sheet Mask have hit the scene. Don’t get me wrong I love how easy it is to just pop open a sheet mask and put it on your face, I also love how portable they are which equals no fuss and no mess, but for me, there is something about a good traditional face mask that will always have my heart.  Depending on your skin type it’s a good…

Get the Look! Smokey Purple with e.l.f Cosmetics

In my previous post, I shared with you all some of my favorites from e.l.f cosmetics, which I still can’t believe I waited so long to try.  Since I’m doing this thing where I’m making a serious effort to use the makeup in my stash, I decided it would only be right for me to share with you this Smokey Purple look I created using some of the e.l.f cosmetics items. For my eyes, I used the e.l.f Prism Eyeshadow Palette in “Smoke” along with the e.l.f Clay Eyeshadow Palette in “Necessary Nudes.” I decided to do a HALO eye…

My e.l.f Cosmetics Favorites

Ever super regret waiting too long to get hip to a product? That’s basically me right about now. I’ve been hearing and seeing E.L.F cosmetics everywhere, but I never stopped to pick up any items for myself. I’m going to put this on the fact that I haven’t really been shopping my local Target aisle for beauty products, and if you’re not buying that then okay sue me, but list yall… I am head over heels with the latest E.L.F beauty products that I’ve been able to try out thanks to being a member of the #elfbeautysquad. I decided instead…

Get the Confidence In Compact Form with It Cosmetics

It Cosmetics has done it again with an exceptional product that I’m really loving. First, it was their amazing skin care collection that you can read all about here and then pick up at Sephora, now they’ve come up with some pretty amazing serum foundations, yes I said SERUM foundations in a compact form.  Now let me get this out of the way early. While I love It Cosmetics, the company still has some leaps to make with their shade range. Understandably they do a lot on QVC, and so they can’t have 20 different shades when selling on that…
