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!
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!
To Suit Every Budget
So it’s already mid July – how did that happen? This season is popular for more than just sun and fun – it’s wedding season! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of weddings to attend this year! But usually, this is the time where I’m always buying gifts, picking out a dress and planning to celebrate. And in the past (when I worked as a wedding planner), of course I was planning every last detail for all the big days!
As a wedding planner, I used to get asked this question a lot – “what should I get my bridesmaids”? It’s customary for the bride and groom to give a gift to their maids and men, so if you’re having troubles trying to think of ideas, then here’s a fun list of ideas ready for you!
A Real Product Review from a NON-Consultant
Okay, so you’ve probably heard all the hype about a product called LipSense that’s making waves across all social media right now. You’ve probably heard people talking about it or even know someone who sells it! To be honest, I come across so many makeup products that I didn’t really give it much of a second thought.
BUT I have a lot of friends that come to me asking about product suggestions, and it seems like at least a few times a week I’ve had someone ask me if I’ve tried it! ALRIGHT THEN. You twisted my arm. My curiosity got the best of me, so I tried it! So here you go friends, a 100% honest LipSense review from someone who does NOT sell it! (This post is NOT sponsored.)

Flirty Day-to-Night Look with a Dramatic Eye
The look: A partial smoky dramatic eye with falsies and a nude lip with light pink tones.
Perfect for: Transitioning from day to evening, a flirty day look, date night.
High end or drugstore products used? A mixture of both, but mostly drugstore products.
I am so obsessed with eye shadows. Actually, I’m pretty sure they are my favorite pieces of makeup to purchase. I think it’s because I always put the focus on the eyes, so color matters!
And when I find a good palette, it just makes me totally giddy! The Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette has been my go-to since I snagged it last month. I seriously cannot put it down. So what’s so great about it?
