Just a quick post this afternoon to show ya’ll what is on my nails! I got this crazy glitter nail polish by Nailtini awhile back in a subscription box. I noticed it in my drawer and decided I needed to start giving some of my glitter nail polishes a little love! I love wearing sparkley nails in the summer because the light reflects off them and it just looks so pretty! I also love doing two accents nails like this, the pinky and ring finger. I’ve been doing it a lot lately, I dunno, I just love it!

Alba Botanica Pore Purifying Mini Peel

Sometimes you go to CVS to pick up a prescription, and then you walk out with a random product you know nothing about. Sometimes you get lucky. Sometimes you don’t. Thankfully this time, I got lucky. I’m not even 100% what to call this mask, because it’s got a super long name. I think the full name is ‘Alba Botanica Good & Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel’. But that’s too long, so I think just ‘mini peel’ is good enough. Alba is a more natural brand, most of the products are free of parabens, phthalates, and fragrance. Their products are available in a lot of drug stores and such these days so they are easy to find!

I meant to do this post earlier in July, then I forgot, and now I remembered. July means we’re half way through the year, and I though a little New Years Resolution Update would be a good idea. Since I posted my New Year’s resolutions, it has made me feel more like I had to keep up with them. Now I want to re look at them and maybe make some updates!

Summer Nail Polish Favorites

Summer calls for brighter colors when it comes to manicures. Put away those pastel greens, girly pinks and purples…it’s time to get BRIGHT.

Wearing bright nail polish can look a little juvenile, but in the summer, I think it looks perfect. It’s fun to have bright fun nails when you’re in the sun or at the beach, and also they just brighten up my day by looking at them! I picked a few of my favorite bright nail polishes I can’t wait to use this summer! What will you be wearing…?

Summer Make Up Picks

July 11th, how is it that the year is half over? I think I’m still recovering from how horrible winter was, I barely feel ready for it to be summer. It’s now that time of year where I drag out the brighter pinks, the peaches, the corals….and put away the deep reds, the mauves, the purples, until October comes. There are a few make up items that will not find their way of my vanity this summer…let’s take a look!

Lifestyle Favorites #1

Today I want to talk about something not beauty related. Because, surprise! My life is actually about more than make up. (But it’s still mostly about make up). Recently I’ve picked up a few ‘lifestyle’ items that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to live without from now on. Hope you like this little peak into my more everyday life outside of the world of lipstick and nail polish!

Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer

Now that it’s summer, it’s hard to go a day without using a primer. We’ve been hitting over 90 degrees almost everyday this month, and I don’t see it stopping any time soon. Over 90 means make up is going to sweat off, and that look doesn’t look pretty on anyone. In order to combat sweaty make up, and smooth out the appearance of my skin, I purchased the Tarte Clean Slate Poreless Primer. Tarte is one of the more ‘natural’ high end brands, and I was excited to try something new from the brand in my effort toward a more natural life.
