Back….. & better than ever!

Relating back to my post about buying no more makeup – I’ve done great and haven’t bought ANY new beauty products as far as beauty goes as I’m truly trying to use up what I have (which is more than I’ll ever admit). And it doesn’t hurt that I’m saving quite a bit of money during this break 🙂

But, I’m back and things are honestly going very well. I needed a social media break as I feel like those are healthy to take every now and then. I’ve recently turned a hobby into a job and I’m loving it! I feel like everyone is creative in their own way somehow and my creative outlet just happens to be looking through the viewfinder of a camera. It’s been that way for as long as I can remember to be honest; taking it as far back as my Barbie Polaroid when I was probably like 5/6 and I really haven’t put a camera down since then.

My work has only progressed and gotten better with learning more about every aspect of a camera and editing programs. I don’t claim to be the best, because there is always going to be better. And I don’t claim to know everything there is to know about the camera and software I use, but I’m learning and I love learning about things I’m passionate about!

With that being said, I’m going to start a new series on here. I know it’s probably going to jeopardize the beauty followers I’ve gained, but I’m also hoping it’s going to bring in photography related bloggers and the more tech-like side followers. I can’t wait to turn my blog around and start posting my work and a little bit about each session as I’ve done about 15-18 in the past three weeks. Yes, you read that correctly.

Anyways, that’s about it for now. I hope you guys enjoy what I have in store and I’m so happy that I’m active again!!!

Get Unready With Me!

IMG_8555

So recently I’ve been seeing this go around as a Youtube tag/challenge and I thought it would make a great blog post as well! I’ve had a pretty solid nighttime routine for a while. Aside from trying out new products here and there, I’ve been doing the same thing for almost a year now and it’s what works best for me!

I Dew Care – Mini Meow Trio

This was an item I picked up as part of my HUGE Ulta purchase, honestly, again with the packaging….I was drawn to it because it’s cute! But unfortunately, I think that’s all these kitten masks are aimed towards being – cute. I also purchased the black cat headband for the same reason, but that’ll probably get more use than these masks. Continue reading “I Dew Care – Mini Meow Trio”

Coco & Eve – Like A Virgin

I’m a sucker for cute packaging and infomercial like products! Coco & Eve showed up as one of those advertisements on Instagram while I was scrolling through my feed late last night and I immediately took an interest in it. Anything, and I mean ANYTHING that has coconut oil or is coconut scented, I must own. I live for the tropical smells and their tastes, but coconut has to be my absolute favorite.

Upon stumbling upon this hair mask and the reviews, I noticed it seems quite staged and while I’m one of those people who have to try it before I give any kind of review, I’m so very tempted and have had the product sitting in the cart since about 2 am. It’s a little pricey and that’s the only thing holding me back. Continue reading “Coco & Eve – Like A Virgin”

A quick update!

Slowly but surely getting the hang of the whole blogging thing and I’m loving every little bit of it! I love sharing my own personal opinions and I love reading what other people have to say as well. Recently I’ve spent a tiny fortune at Ulta Beauty and until that product arrives, I plan on doing a few beauty related posts here and there to continue the beauty (ish) theme I’ve got going on. The closer my Hawaii trip gets, the more I’ll be blogging as my brain is spitting out ideas all over the place of what I can post!

Aside from that, I got to babysit this little cutie tonight and I can’t believe how much she’s grown since I last posted a picture of her!

The Truth About Ulta Beauty

I don’t even know where to start and I just wanted to bang my fists on the keyboard out of anger for the bad rep that this chain is receiving right now. It’s simply not fair.

DISCLAIMER – This is my experience from working there and how my store handled situations. I’m in no way backing up any other location, as I believe it could have happened, but I feel the need to shed some light on such an issue. Continue reading “The Truth About Ulta Beauty”

Fresh Face Mask

IMG_7036I forgot one of the things I was most excited about in my Lush haul the other day!! I bought a new fresh face mask – for those of you who don’t know, the fresh face masks are to be refrigerated, giving face masks a whole new meaning!

The face mask that I purchased with Brazened Honey. This one caught my attention in particular because not only is it a deep cleansing mask, it supposed to brighten and moisturize….AND IT DOES! I highly recommend this product if you have congested ares on your face, or even dry patches (which I noticed it completely got rid of mine). I don’t know if the result will be long lasting, but for the time being, I’m not complaining. Being able to massage the mask into my skin as I’m rinsing it off, it makes my face feel like it just got the best cleansing it’s ever had and that’s what I like my products to do – feel like they’re actually doing something.
