Guys! I finally tried that $5 false lash effect mascara that the inter-webs was going crazy over. You’ve probably seen the posts going around about the Redditor who found a $5 drugstore mascara that offers false lash-like volume and drama. It sounds too good to be true, but considering that it’s only the price of a pumpkin spice latte, and considering I’m a huge sucker for good mascara, I had to pick up a tube and try it! Read on for my thoughts and before & after pics! Continue reading “Review: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara”

ITS FALL, Y’ALL! I am soooooooo excited for the start of September! While I find something to love about every season, there’s no denying that autumn is my favorite. Pumpkin lattes, cozy scarves, and long hikes through autumn leaves—I love it all!
I know the official start of fall is still a few weeks away, but I couldn’t wait any longer to start celebrating. I’ve also been wanting to do a little giveaway to celebrate getting back into blogging. And finally, school is starting back up—and whether you’re heading off to school yourself or packing up your kids for another year of classes and activities, I bet you could use some new beauty goodies to freshen up your routine for a busy new season!
So, I’m giving away a bundle of beauty loot from Tarte! One lucky reader will win a Tarte Dream Big Eyeshadow Palette, Leave Your Mark Eyeshadow Palette, Maneater Self-Sharpening Liner in Black, Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara in Black, and Arch Architect Brow Pencil & Gel. The Tarte cosmetics giveaway is open internationally and will run through September 10th; you can enter as many times as you like using the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!
Ooh, unpopular opinion time. Because if there’s one thing that seems to have really become “in” over the past few years, it’s body positivity: loving your physical form exactly as is, basically giving a big ol’ middle finger to society’s established norms of acceptable beauty, weight, and body shape. It’s a nice idea on paper, but IRL, although I now feel better than ever about my body, I’m over the body positivity movement. Here’s why.

It feels like forever since I shared a Julep box here on the blog! Well, actually it’s been about six months…but that’s still a long time! I skipped a few boxes this winter and actually haven’t been polishing much in general because my nails have been in bad shape. But now they’re healthy again, and I had some Jules to use toward a monthly box, so I thought I’d treat myself to some new polish! Check out everything I got in my April 2017 Julep box, and make sure you enter my giveaway to win some Julep polish of your own!
