21 Aug

What does it mean to “depot” your makeup?  It means taking the product out of the original container and putting into a palette.  It saves space and allows you to further organize your collection.

There have been some eyeshadow casualties along my journey on learning how to properly depot (RIP).  Now that I’ve figured out an easy, full-proof method, I wanted to share. It could save eyeshadow lives!  Continue reading


Canadian Beauty Find: Annabelle Eyeshadow

16 Aug

I went on a road trip to Canada earlier this summer, and being the beauty geek that I am, I was excited to head to the drugstore to check out their cosmetics.  I saw lots of the same brands that we have here in the US, but there was one inexpensive brand that caught my eye.

Annabelle Cosmetics.  Even better?  They were on sale!  I picked up a few unique shades and was happily on my way.  So, did the cheap price mean cheap quality?  Continue reading

Sooo, my birthday is next month and I’m thinking about asking for these shoes:

I fell in love with them the moment I saw them.  I’ll admit, the 2 and 1/2 inch platform is a little much, and I may break an ankle with the 6 inch heel…. but oh well.  I could wear them in a wheelchair just as well.

Well, Hello Bombshell! *hair flip*

Any of you guys hit up the Semi-Annual sale this year?  It’s not in the stores anymore, but still going online until January 22nd.  I wear a hard-to-find bra size so I usually stock up this time of year (TMI?).

Let’s get to it! Continue reading

Ch-ch-check it out!  (A little Beastie Boys shout out there) Continue reading
