July 2015 Beauty Favorites

Hey hey hey! Time for my monthly beauty favorites!! I am trying a different setup for filming here. I got a new ring light that I’m loving, after a few months of a giant headache. The first one I bought didn’t work, and it took months for me to be refunded. Anyway, I decided to film against a lighter background (the curtains in my master). I don’t have a “beauty room” but I like how my equipment is moveable and portable – I can set it up pretty much anywhere. Let me know what you think of this new setup.

Products Mentioned:

And, in case you were wondering, here’s the It Cosmetics Makeup Routine video I mentioned.

Just a little word about Scentbird. It’s $14.95 a month and you get to choose which fragrance is sent to you. No surprises! They say it’s like dating your perfumes before marrying them. If you sign up using my referral link, your second fragrance is free (which would be the second month). I receive a fragrance credit if you sign up under my link. You can feel free to use it or not, totally up to you. I really think it’s an awesome subscription because they have over 300 name brand fragrances and it is easy to use in the reusable case. It isn’t some generic thing. Not to mention, $15 is a steal for the amount of fragrance you get. I think I am going to get Tom Ford Black Orchid next!

Mom of Two Approved Baby Gear


As a seasoned (ha!) mom of two, I have acquired so much baby crap. In the literal and not-so literal sense. It’s embarrassing how much gear we have, and I won’t even mention how many strollers we own. Okay, it’s five. There, I said it. The “what baby gear do I need?” debacle can be […]

(Mostly) One Brand Makeup Routine – It Cosmetics


I’m going to kick off this Monday with a makeup video! Oh yeaahhhhhh. I was recently sent some products from It Cosmetics and I thought it would be a really fun idea to film a makeup routine using as much of them as I could. (Just a side note: this isn’t sponsored, I really just […]

Friday Updates // No to Naps, Yes to Highlighters


Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all have had a great week. We have been doing  a lot of hanging out and not keeping very busy. It’s been sort of a lay low week for us, but that’s okay by me! Lately life has been slow and busy at the same time. HIGLIGHTER ON FLEEK […]
