Combined Haul: Sephora and Ulta

Here is a video I haven't done in what feels like forever, a combined Sephora and Ulta haul.  I didn't get much from Sephora but I did do some damage (with coupons) at Ulta.  What products would you like to try that I've show in this video? What else are you dying to try? I'd love to know! XO

Plump, Kissable Lips

Okay, I know, 'plump kissable lips' doesn't really sound like a topic I would touch right? Well, now I'm trying some new things and that means going beyond my typical posts.  I'm re-branding and turning over a new leaf, folks. Granted, this isn't going to be scandalous or racey but it's not a review either. Anyway, enough blathering, forward- MARCH!

Spring/Summer Makeup Look

Hello my beautiful Stars, I hope this post finds you well! I am back to making videos again and I am going to start sharing them on my blog.  This video is a really nice, subtle, spring and summer makeup look.   For my eyeshadow I used the Vice Palette, I believe it's the Vice 3, and the Noir black eye liner.  If you like this video, please be sure to head over to my YouTube channel (linked below) and hit that subscribe button- I'd love to have you!

These are some of my FAVORITE pens...

As many of you know who have seen my monthly favorite videos, I love paper and pens and stationary and stickers and planners (oh my!). I thought I would bring that little part of my life to my blog today and tell you about some of my newest favorite pens.  Now, usually, I only like 1.2-1.5 boldness in a pen tip and a rainbow of colors only in ballpoint.  Enter the Papermate Inkjoy Gel pen. I bought mine off of Amazon (cheaper there) in the 0.7 tip pen in a rainbow of colors but, obviously, in gel.  Now, I used gel pens when I was a little kid but these are gel pens for adults. While I wouldn't mind some glitter, the colors are bright and vibrant and the pen writes smoothly and doesn't skip. Here is the picture of my pen test and what they look like:
To me, the biggest shocker was the yellow pen.  Usually, I can't read anything written in yellow but this was yellow but it was vibrant and bold and easy to read.  I was also surprised by the fact that there was a brown pen.  It writes nicely and the color is actually there, it doesn't look like a light black. The grip of the pen is not squishy but instead is pretty solid and I was surprised about that because I am so used to pens having a softer grip.  This doesn't affect how the pen writes, however, you get used to it naturally and you're writing looks nicer the longer you use it.  Have you used these pens? What do you think of them?XOXO

Brand Focus: Colourpop Cosmetics

Hello my beauties! Today I am going to try something new, a new type of post, a brand focus.  I've seen many of these done on YouTube but find them difficult to discover in blogs.  Probably because to do one you have to own a lot of one brand's product to do such a post and that can take a while.  Well, I've decided to take on the challenge and take it on with one of my all time favorite brands, Colourpop Cosmetics.
