ULTA’s New Brands and Why I’m Slowly Leaving Sephora

As a beauty blogger, I spend a ridiculous amount of money on cosmetics. This number has greatly reduced since I’ve been on this big push to pay off all my student loans, hopefully, in the next two years plus my taste in cosmetic brands has changed.

This post is sponsored by Babbleboxx.com on behalf of Healthy Choice. All opinions are my own. I’ve talked about health and weight loss a good bit on this platform. It’s something that all women deal with on different levels. I’ve had my fair share of fights with my weight, but this year I’ve decided to love myself no matter what. Now I’m focused on doing small things to make me feel better about myself like being a bit more active in ways that I enjoy.
