MAC WM ProfileWhat?!!  I know, I know it’s been a long time.  I actually have a lifestyle blog on the back burner and I’ve been trying to decide on whether to revamp this blog using the same look as my lifestyle blog or just start adding beauty posts to the lifestyle blog and leave this blog up but with no new content.  Anyhoo, it seems like highlighting and contouring has been the rave.  Why you say?  Unlike before, several makeup lines are coming out with “all in one” contouring and highlighting palettes such as Smashbox and Anastasia.  Honestly, this isn’t a new thing, Drag Queens have been doing this WAY BEFORE the everyday person had even thought about it.

Cover PhotoI have been on quite the HGTV/DIY kick lately after spending the summer renovating our home.  I will be sharing some before and after photos from the summer in different posts to share ideas with everyone!  After this past summer I was inspired to seek out any DIY opportunities.  I spent the holidays with my parents and when I walked into their house my heart beamed with visions of all sorts of potential makeovers to their home.  After a little bit of thought, the easiest thing for me to tackle in the short amount of time was the guest bathroom.  They pretty much had builder grade everything.  Horrible “Holllywood Style” strip lighting, dated decor, worn down cabinetry, old fixtures and a plain worn out frameless mirror.  In addition, they were badly in need of some fresh paint.   View Post

iMomokoHello beauties!  Recently I was invited to attend the Imomoko and Refa blogger event.  It was a wonderful afternoon of socializing and hearing about the launch of the new Refa CARAT tool.  It was extremely interesting learning about the Refa tool and it’s benefits.  The ReFa CARAT’s unique massaging action works deep within your skin.  The spherical drainage rollers help stimulate blood flow and improve circulation.   View Post

ShiWelcomeI had the wonderful honor of attending the Shiseido Benefique launch last night at the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills. Shiseido has been a leader in the cosmetics and skincare industry for the last 140 years.  They are in the process of launching their Benefique collection targeted for women in their 20’s and 30’s who are looking to address skincare issues such as dryness, dull skin, blemishes, discoloration and fine lines.   View Post


This review has been a long time coming.  I meant to get this out before the holidays, however life got busy and I was not able to pull it together.  I am glad that I did wait and have some time to test this palette out more.

Hands down this has become one of my favorite palettes.  I know I am not the only one as I have seen this palette appear in many vloggers favorites for December.   View Post
