I'm always looking for ways to save more money. Whether that's using coupons/coupon codes, using my Ebates to get cash back, or reducing spending altogether, I try to be conscious of what I spend and use an app called Mint to track spending. I felt like I was doing a good job at meeting my … Continue reading Why you should save your 🌰🌰🌰
Usually I love that element of surprise when the Birchbox sneak peek email comes out and you can't wait to see what 4 samples you got in addition to your sample choice. This month, the sneak peek email didn't even get opened. Why you ask? Because I gave into the curated box this month and … Continue reading Birchbox February 2017
I can only imagine the amount of money Target has taken from me over the last few years. It seems that no matter how much I tell myself that I will stick to my list and get ONLY what I came in for, I always end up getting more. Everything is just so pretty and shiny … Continue reading Target Beauty Box: February 2017
I have received a ton of recommendations from friends and other beauty lovers to try Glossybox. What has held me back you ask? One: the price. I currently have two similar beauty subs and they are $10 each. Just one Glossybox is $21. I have a hard time justifying that. Two: I'm obviously drowning in … Continue reading Glossybox Trial: January 2017

The silicone blender is new on the scene and I figured it was a gimmick. After testing out this thing, I am … Continue reading Yay or nay: silicone makeup sponge
There's not much worse than trying to rock a matte lip with cracked, nasty lips. This is the quickest way to kill a rockin lip color! When matte lips first came out, I really underestimated how much this step made a difference. Once I figured it out, I was on a mission to find the … Continue reading Lip Scrub Reviews: Bliss vs elf vs Hard Candy
This seems to be off-topic from what I normally post on my blog but in actuality, it's totally related. We spend too much money on makeup and skincare products, so why not keep more money in your pocket to buy more?! You may have heard about ebates because they advertise online and on tv often, … Continue reading You’re missing out on FREE money!
When I dump out my bag of empties at the end of the month, I see progress, new favorites, and discoveries. My fiancé just sees trash! Men! I worked really hard to make a big dent in my product stash this month, and it shows with all these empties! Unfortunately I had to split them … Continue reading January Empties!
After reading an Allure article about this mask (read here), I was super intrigued. The journalist claimed this really cleared up their acne. I love all masks and don't have anything like this in my collection, so when my fiancé needed to go to Macy's I crept away stealthily and purchased this bad boy. As … Continue reading Review: Lush Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask
