    My Summer Beauty Essentials

    Happy summer! The summer solstice was this past week on June 21 so what a better time to share some of my summer beauty essentials I’ve been loving. Makeup is one of my favorite hobbies and I would even say I have quite the collection. I’m no beauty guru or blogger, but it’s always fun for me to share new finds and favorites. It’s a little bittersweet to think about the solstice already passing us because from here on out, the days only get shorter.

    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.
