Mikasa Beauty | 10-Piece Complete Eye Set

Aside from radiant, healthy skin – quality brushes are a must when it comes to flawless make-up application. It’s simply fact. Before I get into my brush review, I’m gonna go off on a tangent real quick. A couple years ago, I went to Vegas for my friend’s bachelorette party, and my luggage was lost/stolen. The sheer, fucking panic I went into is indescribable. I was so ready to hop on the next flight back home, but I thought, okay… it’s just been misplaced. That’s all. They will find it. First of all, I’m a planner – I had outfits…

Nostalgia

Isn’t it amazing how a song or scent can transport you back to a time or place? Lately, I’ve been reminiscing about my childhood. I miss it so much; it hurts. A few things that have triggered my emo state of mind is: My parents. They’re getting old.

I look at them now (my eyes are tearing up as I type this), and they’re fragile – worn down and frail. The…

Slow & Steady Wins the Race

So, yesterday was a bitter pill to swallow. I went to the gym. And met with a personal trainer. YES. A personal freakin’ trainer. See, I’m overweight, and have been this way for 11 years now. A few years ago, I saw my doctor for a wellness visit, and she spoke to me about my…

It’s a Wrap

And just like that, Christmas is over. I’m kind of bummed out, only because to me, this season is EVERYTHING. If I’m not watching Christmas movies, then I’m listening to Christmas music, TWENTY-FOUR-SEVEN. I’m happy. This time of the year makes me genuinely happy. There’s something magical in the air, that I’m sure most of…

Seasons Greetings

I wanted to take this time to reach out to my online family, and say Merry Christmas! This time of the year is my absolute favorite. Between quality time with my family, good eats, holiday music, and epic holiday movies (Hallmark movies, FTW), every day in the month of December brings so much joy to…

Legit Foundation Guide

So, time and time again, one of the main questions I get asked about makeup is, “What type of foundation is right for my skin?” Getting asked this question when I worked for MAC was simple, because product-knowledge was based off our products, and our products alone. I knew how to recommend our foundations and…
