    the perfect nude nail & at-home manicure tips

    This will be a quick blog post that will help you step up your at-home manicure! As soon as the warmer months come around, my schedule becomes packed! And since I’ve been on a nail polish kick lately, I’ve had to create my own at-home manicure process and find products that give salon-like results. After many trial and errors, and testing a ton of polish colors, I think I’ve found the perfect at-home manicure and nude nail. I love having my nails done, but I really can’t afford going to the salon twice per month. I think that’s most of us, right? That being said, I can’t stand when the…

    Favorite Products for Curly Hair

    I’m finding that people really love to know what products work well for fellow curlies – including myself – and I think it’s because curly hair is often forgotten about. Nowadays I’ve embraced my big, curly hair and do get a lot of compliments on it, but growing up it was never like that. Once I stopped fighting my hair and learned how to care for my curls with these amazing products I’ve truly come to really enjoy my hair. Sure I still have days when I’m not happy with it, but who doesn’t have a bad hair day. I would love to see more people embracing their waves and curls so I’m going to…

    Reviews | New Beauty Products | Spring 2016

    Many new spring product releases are out and they’ve been all over social media. I bought quite a few new products at the end of January and I’ve been testing them out and my thoughts are in! It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream | This item was on my February Wish List post from a few weeks ago and I went ahead and got it! I wanted to purchase this to use in place of my foundation during the work week. I don’t need to wear full foundation while I’m at work, but I also like to have enough coverage for the redness around my nose and any discoloration. For a…
