Little Black Book of Bronzers

A few months ago (gulp) I had the privilege of being sent this awesome “Little Black Book of Bronzers” by Too Faced. The name is definitely a misnomer because it’s actually really, really large–but it’s so friggin’ amazing I just had to share it with you all. It contains their entire collection of bronzers – and you all by now know how much of a fanatic I am for the Milk Chocolate Soleil. The Milk Chocolate variety is perfect for pale-faced gals while the chocolate soleil is perfect for anyone with a medium complexion and deeper. Also included are a bunch of shimmery/highlighting bronzers (is that a paradox?).Read Post →

Filofax v. Erin Condren: Who Wins Out?

Hey y’all! Today I’m back with two exciting announcements. The first is that PSS has a brand new look — thanks to a sleepless Saturday night! I’ve been wanting to overhaul the look of PSS for a while now (it’s needed one for about two years now but I hadn’t found the time). I’m so thrilled with how it turned out–please take a look around and get to know the new site! Secondly, it’s Filofax video day!Read Post →

June Favorites 2014

Hey everyone! Today I’m sharing with you my June Favorites. I know it’s a little late but studying for my Anesthesiology board exam on July 29th has me completely swamped! Get ready for something exciting in August though! ;-) I’ve been loving espadrilles from Shopbop (they have a great selection) and this has been one of my favorite places to shop for beauty products lately thanks to the free shipping and easy returns.

Naturally Brightening Skincare Review

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a new skincare range that comes from natural cosmetics brand Burt’s Bees. Not only have I been using Burt’s Bees lip balm since high school (when Accutane made my lips sore and chapped and needed constant TLC), but I’ve absolutely loved seeing how the company has blossomed into a full-range natural skincare line (with even a few cosmetics thrown in there too). So when they invited me to try their newest line, dubbed “Brightening“, I jumped at the chance, because with Daisy extract this range claims to treat hyperpigmentation in a 99% natural way.

First Impression: L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara

For what seems like ages I’ve been hearing about the L’Oreal Voluminous® miss manga mascara from overseas blogs and channels and have been super interested in trying it out. I wasn’t sure what all the fuss was about, or what it claimed to do, but when I saw it available at my local CVS in a display stand, I grabbed the blackest black I could find and headed home to try it out. I decided to film my first impression on it for you guys and gals! I hope you enjoy!Read Post →
