What seems like ages ago, I asked you on Instagram if you would like to see what’s in my makeup bag these days–and if so, video post or picture post? Well, it was completely 50/50 so I decided to do a hybrid post. Hope that’s okay! So if you don’t like watching videos or you can’t because you’re at work, I have pictures below (and, P.S. – writing the names on the photos with my graphic pen tablet was a beast so please give it some love).

When was the last time a new-from-scratch beauty line was introduced to the mass market? I honestly can’t tell. And one helmed by a celebrity actress? Don’t recall. But never in my wildest dreams did I imagine how truly great this one would be. When I heard about it, initially I was skeptical. But then I read the philosophy behind the brand: quality made, luxury-grade cosmetics, with no brand advertising, so it can be sold for cheap…at Walmart. I received a few press samples (the mascara, tinted moisturizer, a nail polish in that beautiful turquoise color above that I totally forgot to mention, a lip butter, and two lipsticks) but I liked the swatches so much I went to a far-away Walmart, where they had a Flower display, and purchased $100 more of the inexpensive makeup. That bought me a lot of makeup, y’all. Click below for the review! CLICK TO READ MORE →
I purchased three makeup bags for three followers, because I wanted to say thank you so much for your support! It is not lost on me that clearly this blog wouldn’t have been possible without you.

I will close the giveaway June 3, 2013 at midnight CDT time!
Well yes, folks – today’s ma’ birthday. I’m one year closer to the big 3-0. Time flies! It seems like just yesterday I was in my mother’s womb…filming a vlog and thinking, “This will make a great blog post!”
But in all seriousness, today might actually prove to be a miserable one: I’m starting a very tough rotation at work, I’m on day shift for 12 hours while my husband is on night shift, which means we won’t even see each other until tomorrow night! :( So no b-day celebrations or kisses or dinner. But you know what would truly make my day? Read on! CLICK TO READ MORE →
Hey everyone! Welcome to my style & beauty blog. I'm kind of, teeny-tiny, slightly, crazily, obsessed with anything sparkly. I'm also obsessed with makeup. Are we in the circle of trust right now? Because if we are, I'd tell you that I use this blog as rationalization for spending way too much money on both of these things.
