I spend a lot of time at my makeup table. I get ready there every morning, and I love that I have it in a room with my own space so that I can organize my stuff as I see fit! But whether you have a vanity, a desk or just get ready at your bathroom sink, you probably have a stash somewhere with all of your products. Having a lot of products can make things messy real fast, so organization is key! There are so many cute organizers out there, but rest assured that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on the fancy ones. Some of my faves are from the dollar store! Read on to check out my faves!
You guys, I am soooo ready for Spring. The season may officially have started, there are still patches of snow on the ground. UGH. I don’t know what’s going on with mother nature, but I won’t let it stop me from trying to feel spring-y, darn it! And since I love lipstick so much, I thought I’d dish on my favorite lippies for Spring to get in the mood!
and why you’ll love them also!
It’s so hard to believe that yet another year is already upon us and the first month is already over! WOW! Last year I rounded up my top favorite beauty products of 2016, and since it was such a popular post, I knew I had to do it again! 2017 brought a TON of great products my way – some brand new and some that were out for awhile but were new to me! So without further adieu, I give you my vote of best beauty products of 2017 – both high end and from the drugstore!
Easy craft that anyone can make!
I’m a Pinterest fanatic, and lately I’ve been looking for ideas on DIY Christmas crafts that my daughter and I can make together. I had my eye on a cute idea to make ornaments out of candy, but they were missing some vital steps in the process! So I combined some tips from a few different ideas to create a fail-proof formula to make the perfect candy ornaments! And trust me, if I can make them perfect every time, then so can you!

This diaper bag is for you, too, dads!
I don’t know about you, but things have been busy with plans revolving around Christmas already! We’ve been shopping, decorating and planning family events. I get so wrapped up in the holidays that I forget my little man’s birthday is soon after! Yikes! I’m gonna have to get into party planning mode soon! I cannot believe he will be two in January. That little dude is getting big – and heavy! One thing I seriously cannot stand is carrying a huge diaper bag around all the time when I have to tote him, too!
Who loves The Walking Dead as much as I do? I must admit, it’s my guilty pleasure!
Whether you do or you don’t, regardless, you probably know the name “Daryl Dixon”. He is the redneck-turned-hero that is a character favorite on the show, played by the lovely Norman Reedus. I loooooove him!
I’ve been really into trying some fun makeup looks for Halloween, and while all the other ladies are out there dressing up as Kardashians, sexy bananas, or what have you, I thought it would be fun to dress up as a dude – ha! Check out some of my other Halloween looks on Instagram!
Here you go friends, a Daryl Dixon Makeup Tutorial – it’s much simpler than you think!
Learn about the Soapbox motto: Soap=Hope
So it’s no surprise that I’m a product junkie. And when I find some that I get extremely excited about – well, they end up here on the blog because I have to share my excitement! I had recently heard about a brand called Soapbox when I happened upon them on Instagram. And then – lucky me! They happened to find me too and ask if I wanted to try out some of their products for a review. Of course I agreed since I was already interested, but after trying the products I found out that I LOVE this company for way more than just the goods!
If y’all have been following along, then you know I’m a huge drugstore makeup fan! I love my high-end products too, but this momma likes to save money by finding some products that work just as well at a fraction of the cost. Enter Rimmel Cosmetics, a drugstore brand with some seriously uhh-mazing products! I already had quite the collection that I purchased myself, but Rimmel was kind enough to send me some products to test out also – so here are a couple looks using some of my favorite Rimmel products!
Happy 1 Year Blogiversary, Kentucky Makeup Junkie!
If you follow me over on Instagram, then you might have remembered seeing a recent post I did recently on July 6th – that date is special to me because it’s the day this blog turned a year old! YAY! Happy Blogiversary to me! *celebration dance* I have learned SO MUCH in my first year as a blogger! It’s been an UNREAL experience full of fun, success, and yes, failure. HAHA. I expected it all. What I didn’t expect was the amazing friendships that I was about to make! (And if you’re curious, you can check out my very first beauty post from a year ago right here!) And STAY TUNED…there is a surprise for you at the end of this post!
