    My Travel Bucket List

    Over the past few years I’ve become a bit of a wanderlust. I took a few vacations growing up, but I’ve never really explored outside of my comfort zone. I spent a few vacations in Colorado when visiting family, went to Ireland for my high school’s band trip, and visited the Bahamas on a cruise – that’s about it.

    Easy-to-Wear Winter Lippies

    These are my top picks for winter lip products that are easy-to-wear.  I put these in the category of easy to wear because of the color or the way they apply because of the packaging.  I only have three but they are the three colors that I have been rotating weekly for work.  These were also the three lip colors that I brought to Iceland so I know that they are tried and true favorites. Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick – Tower of Mauve This line has recently been reformulated to be even more moisturizing than predecessors.  Personally, I feel like the previous formula was bit dry and uncomfortable to…
