    Fall Favorites | 2018

    It’s time for another favorites post – specifically my fall favorites for this year! Fall is in full swing and I’ve been enjoying as much of it as I can. October started out quite cold and dreary in Minnesota, but once it cleared the colors and shorter days were wonderful. We even got the perfect fall day to take our engagement pictures, with full colors and leaves falling all around us. I’ll share a few pictures of our session at the end of this post if you’re interested! With fall, comes pumpkin and spice everything. Warm colors. Muted and dark lipsticks. Sweaters and scarves. All of these and more, which I’ve…

    ColourPop | First Impressions!

    Previous to this order, I owned one ColourPop product that I purchased with some coworkers, so I’m going to use this order as my real first impression of the brand. ColourPop is all over YouTube and Instagram, and I finally caved and made my own purchase. I’ve been hesitant to purchase Colour Pop products because it’s based online and it can be so difficult to guess which colors will be flattering in real life. Also, the Ultra Matte Lip liquid lipstick I already owned I didn’t love – so drying. Since this was my first purchase with ColourPop I signed up for the newsletter to get $5 off my order.…

    Travel Makeup Bag & Essentials

    I’m going out of town this weekend in Duluth for Grandma’s Marathon. I’m not running in any of the events, but my good friends are and I’m tagging along for the ride. This is the first trip of the summer out of three planned so far, and I’ve been preparing for what I want to bring with for a bit. I’m testing out some products that are air travel friendly for the trip to San Francisco in just a few weeks. So excited! Makeup I definitely tend to over pack everything when I travel. I usually justify it by saying I’d rather have options than leave something behind that I needed. I…

    Favorites | April 2015

    I’m trying to get into monthly favorites posts. Mine will include a bit of everything, beauty, fitness, lifestyle, foods, and whatever I’m loving. Let’s get into it! Beauty Argan Magic Defining Curl Cream I have been lurking on Reddit a lot the past month, and one day in the Curly Hair thread I found a post talking about this product and immediately ran out to purchase it. Unfortunately, I think this product has been discontinued as I found mine at Marshalls and TJ Maxx at 50% off the original retail price. It can found on Amazon, but at a inflated price. I’m not sure I would pay the inflated price, but at retail price…

    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…
