Favorites: Skincare & Haircare

     Hello!  When I decided to write a post dedicated to my skincare and haircare favorites (but mostly skincare) which spans over a non-specific time period (from the past three months or so, in this case), it was brought to my attention that I haven't created a single post regarding my monthly or weekly makeup  favorites. And I have come to the conclusion that featuring those type of posts on my blog will probably be few and far between, if any at all. I know, I know....Never say never.  So, it could  happen occasionally!

Got Textured, Thick, Curly Hair? Meet the Best Shampoo Ever! Shea Moisture Review

     If you haven't heard of Shea Moisture by now, I have to pose the question: Oh my goodness, where on God's green earth have you been??And a disclaimer:  it's only in my wildest dreams that this would be a sponsored or affiliated post with this companyand it is not; I did in facbuy this product with my own money, loves. 😉

     The Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair  haircare line is made up of all natural and organic ingredients, as well as all the other lines that Shea Moisture has to offer. This particular line is meant to make hair more manageable and healthier over time, and doesn't really claim to lend itself as a line of styling products, so much so as regular maintenance hair products. This Conditioning Shampoo  is the only product I have tried from the Noni & Monoi  line thus far, and from my experience with this shampoo, I can say that I definitely see myself trying out more products that this line has to offer!

Wet 'n' Wild Spring 2015 Silver Lake Collection: My Picks + Swatches

     Honestly, these Wet 'n' Wild collections appear and disappear like little Houdinis....there's now a new Venice Beach Eyeshadow Collection  that came out right after this one that I'm now on the hunt for, and I was contemplating whether or not to even create a post for this Silver Lake collection, since it was released back in the spring, and may be a bit difficult to find now. 

     Then I realized that geographic location is quite different across the board when it comes to the availability of drugstore limited edition collections in general, and I didn't even see this collection anywhere near me until about two months after it was released, so.....ladies, there's still a chance you may find it! If you do, I think it's highly worth checking out, as the textures, formula, and overall quality of these products is really quite lovely. Read on for more pictures and my thoughts/first impressions on these beautiful products!

FOTD: A Recreation of KathleenLights Chocolate Bar Palette Tutorial!

     Hello everyone!  I don't think I've expressed my undying love for the gorgeous, amazing Kathleen from KathleenLights on my blog. And I decided, what better way to do that than to recreate one of my favorite looks of hers, which is her Neutral Holiday Glam Tutorial (watch it here).

Metallic Copper Smokey Eyes & Red Lips

     Hello everyone!  So, before it's brought up, let me just go ahead and say that I realize this makeup look is a bit - autumnal? Haha don't worry, I already know that nothing about the smokiness of this eye makeup or the red lips scream 'summertime!' to me either, but....I digress. These unseasonal rainy, cloudy and cold summer days have really been changing up my makeup game, in regards to what tones I wear, y'know? And an enthusiastic 'huzzah!'  to my blush color actually somewhat  showing up this time in photos! Whoooo! 🙌😎😌

Acquisitions | MAC, Sephora, & Drugstore + Mini Reviews!

     Hello dolls!  After the course of some thorough research, I have been experimenting with different products, not to mention a few different brands that are completely  new to me, trying to get a better idea of what to incorporate into my freelance kit. As you can see, a good majority of my findings were drugstore, or at least drugstore price (post disclaimer: these were all purchased by me).
