My End of the Year Makeup and Skincare Haul (it’s a lot!)

Happy New Year, everyone! It’s a new year, let’s all make it a great one. πŸ™‚ Are you ready for a huge haul? I’m going to be showing you ALL the goodies I purchased in November and December and yes…it’s a lot! I kinda went overboard, because of all the sales that were going on. I didn’t pay full price for any of these things. Most of these items were either on sale or I used a few (early Christmas) gift cards I had. That’s my way of justifying the money *blank stare* I know it’s a weak excuse, because,...

Happy Holidays! Here’s this month’s PLAY! by SEPHORA box

Merry Christmas, everyone! Hope you had a great time with your family and friends. We had an amazing time. πŸ™‚ I love creating memories and starting new traditions with my little family. Check out my Instagram for a selection of pics. Anyway, thanks so much for sticking around and reading this. My posts are becoming more rare and I don’t have any other explanation for it than the fact that I now have 2 kids instead of 1. Double the fun, but I also have way less time for my blog. Most of the time I’m just tired. I have...

Review: Chamomile Eye Therapy, an organic eye cream, by Made From Earth

Two months ago I announced that I would be trying and comparing two popular eye creams and I enthusiastically named my upcoming review the ‘battle of two eye creams’. I started using the Stem Cell Collagen Moisturizer by Lady Soma and I planned on switching to Made From Earth’s Chamomile Eye Therapy after 4 weeks of use. Unfortunately, the idea of comparing the two didn’t quite work out, because I immediately started getting little bumps under my eyes after a few days of using the first one. I think it might have been an allergic reaction to one of the...

Review: Studio Gear Prime Objective Perfecting Face Primer

When I first started applying makeup, I didn’t even know makeup primers existed. And honestly, I was never really satisfied with how my foundation look (which was just powder back then), but I wasn’t quite sure what to do about it. Until I discovered primers. A primer really does make your makeup look better and also extends the wear it! Once I started applying a primer before my powder, I never looked back. πŸ˜€ Primers don’t just go well with powders, also liquid foundation benefit from having a ‘base’ to sit on. Just think of it as painting a wall:...

Review: Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo

It’s been really busy this past week, guys. Having a toddler and a baby sure does take up a lot of time. I haven’t even had time to properly do my hair after I wash it. Instead of straightening my hair with a flat iron, like I usually do, I’ve been doing a so-called ‘wash-and-go’. Wash-and-go simply means I’ve been washing my hair and letting it air-dry. I have naturally curly hair, so that’s what I’ve been rocking. The picture below is my hubby and I on Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚ My hair has been looking beautiful. Not to toot my own...

Inside my November PLAY! by SEPHORA box #sephoraplay

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a good one. I planned on posting this in the weekend, but of course my plan didn’t work out. The weekend is when we try to do something fun with Mason and having your mom being inside behind her laptop on a sunny day is not my toddler’s idea of having fun. So no blog this weekend. I did, however, receive my PLAY! box on Saturday, which was exciting! I had already seen other’s people pictures on Instagram, so I knew what to expect. Like last month’s, it’s a good one!

My Ulta Beauty/Sephora VIB sale haul

Happy Friday, everyone! You’ve probably seen dozens of makeup hauls this week on beauty blogs and on YouTube. That’s because Sephora had their Friends & Family sale a couple of weeks ago, followed by the VIB and VIB Rouge Sale last week. Coincidentally (or maybe not!) Ulta also had some sort of sale; I was sent a 20% off all ‘prestige’ (meaning: high end brands) coupon in my email right before the Sephora sale started. These particular Ulta coupons on quite rare, normally they just give a discount on drugstore brands. Both Sephora and Ulta were trying to get into...

Empties! Becca, Jesse’s Girl, Lancome and more

Today I will be showing you which products I have used up recently. Recently as in: this past week. Coincidentally, I used up all of these items at the same time and, coincidentally, it’s all been makeup! I’ve actually been throwing out most of my used up makeup and skincare, but from now on I’m going to try to start saving my empties again to show you. Maybe at the end of each quarter? Or every other month? Picture below! I do apologize for it all being so dirty. I’ve clearly had them for a while and I’ve been using...

Gift idea: IT Cosmetics holiday makeup brush sets

What a week! It honestly feels like the world as we know it is coming to an end.

My 3 must-haves from IT Cosmetics 2016 Holiday collection

It’s November, which means that the holidays are approaching! There’s not much of a ‘winter’ here in Southern California (it’s always sunny in San Diego), so instead of looking forward to snow and cold weather, I look forward to the holidays. Also, shopping. And lots of it. πŸ˜€ November and December are the best months to buy beauty products, simply because companies come out with limited edition holiday sets that are of great value. Like every year, I will cover the best holiday sets here on the blog. The first brand I’ll be focusing on is IT Cosmetics. This is...
