Well it's been a long time since I last posted anything on my blog. When I first started my blog back in 2009 I was still going to school and looking forwards to graduating that Spring. Soon after graduating college, I then began to focus on finding a job in my field that would open doors and allow me to finally quit my job in retail. Now that it has been 5 years since graduation I am looking back and wondering why I quit doing something that I enjoyed doing. Sometimes life gets to us and we forget to focus on those frivolous passions that keep us alive and sane. So, I am here giving this a second shot and hoping that those that still follow my blog will find it entertaining and informative. After all these years and shedding my skin different times one thing still remains, I am still and will forever be a self-proclaimed make up junkie! I never stopped watching youtube videos, reading makeup blogs and being involved in the "online makeup community".  If you have any request about things you would like to see on my blog please feel free to write your request in the comments section below.

Neways, I would like to pick up by writing about some of my current beauty besties (aka favorites)!
These beauty besties I am going to talk about today are products that I have either repurchased or would literally run to repurchase once they run (no pun intended) out! First is the Chanel "Mousse Douceur", this is a great product for taking off makeup at the end of the day. Obviously, it is more of a luxury product that I try not to use everyday even though I want to because it is a one step stop to clean face-ville. This is the second time that I purchase this from Nordies and despite the hefty price tag ($45) I will dare say that I will repurchase this once I run out. If you are looking for a easy breasy makeup remover at night try the Chanel mousse douceur and I think you won't be dissapointed. Now moving down south to legs, a few montsh ago my cousin gave me a Schick Intuition plus renewing moisture razor and I didn't give it much though until I actually went to use it and I was certainly impressed. This razor takes the hassle out of needing shaving cream. It smells good and it leaves your skin feeling soft! I am a convert! 
 Next, we have my holy grail Donna Karan Cashmere Mist deodorant. I bought this back in December and I have loved it and recommended it to my friends since. I mean a $22 dollar deodorant HAS to be beyond amazing in my opinion and it is! It not only does a good job at keeping me smelling like a lady but the smell last all day. After a long day of work and sweating like I do this baby does the trick. Never had I been so impressed with any deodorant not even the sport or clinical protection kind that you find at the drugstore which will cost you about $13ish dollar so for a few bucks more you will be getting an A+ product which is why this is another of my beauty besties. Ok so I have owned the Clarisonic since probably the first day it came out. I am kind of that girl that will be the first to venture out and try something that is new and "gimmicky" (which is wasn't) and I have loved it ever since! There are times that I have felt bored with it just because I like to rotate products and again try new things, and I had stopped using it for a few months and just used my one step gentle cleanser from Neutrogena (which is another product I have repurchased several times-takes makeup off great you just have to be careful that it doesn't get in your eyes). Then one day I saw noticed that Clarisonic made a "deep-pore" brush head which is "excellent for oily or large pore skin types". I have been using it for about two weeks now and I truly have noticed that my pores have been reduced and I wish I had taken a picture of my pores (face) before I started using this. I really wasn't expecting the results I got or else I would have done a before and after picture! Anyways, if you have a similar skin type and own a Clarisonic I highly suggest you give this brush head a  try. 
I have always heard a lot of buzz around Lush products and recently in January went to a Lush store, which are not always local, and picked up the BIG sea salt shampoo! I am so in LOVE with this shampoo and it is not even funny. This shampoo has impressed me because of its power to remove build up and "gunk" from my hair. After washing my hair with BIG it leaves my hair feeling clean, airy and light sans all the buildup. The smell is sooo good! It has a beachy clean smell that is intoxicatingly amazing. This shampoo deserves a post of it's own. The price is $26.95 for 11.4 oz of pure amazingness. Read this blurb taken from half the base of Big shampoo is made with sea salt, giving massive volume to hair in need of a boost. Sea salt is also full of minerals and de-greases hair, removing dead skin cells and dirt without stripping natural oils for a fresh, squeaky clean feeling. We balance the sea salt with seaweed infusion, extra virgin coconut oil and avocado butter for soft, nourished locks. Finally, fresh citrus juices are squeezed in for incredible shine. It's no wonder this one is a best-seller!
This BIG shampoo sells for its self! Finally, I will conclude with an oldie but a goodie-almond oil! When I was in 7th grade this girl who I thought was my friend told me that if I trimmed my eyelashes they would grow longer and so being the little vain girl I was I cut off my lashes. My lashes wouldn't grow and I was super devastated. I told my mom what I had done and she said that she had heard that almond  oil was good to help my lashes grow back. And guess what it worked and ever since I have used this oil on and off when ever I feel that my lashes need an extra umph! I also use it on my eyebrows when I over pluck and whether or not this is a placebo effect I do not care because it is part of my routine and I notice a difference when I use it on the daily. At night I just gently rub some all over my eyelashes being careful that it doesn't enter my eyes. Almond oil can be found anywhere for about $3 for 2oz. Alright, friends that is all for today, I hope you guys will try some of these products out. I feel that these products are ones that can fit into anyones beauty routine! Let me know if you have any questions! :) I promise to include more pictures in my next post!


  1. I need the sea salt shampoo in my life! Thanks for reviewing this product, I have very thin volume-less hair and the sea salt shampoo sounds like something that can give me oomph!
