August Favorites

August Beauty Favorites 2014

Click here to view my latest YouTube video – my favorite beauty and non-beauty items for the month of August! I had a great time picking this month’s favorites for you guys – definitely a random assortment, heavier on the non-beauty faves this time around. But no fear–next month’s installment promises to be big on the beauty, as I’ve been testing some products out a little more rigorously than usual so I can be absolutely sure they’re up to standard (and they are).

Leave me a comment down below with your favorite beauty item of the past month. What have you been absolutely loving? Let’s have a discussion!

Hello! I’m back! I missed you all! I am typing this up, bleary-eyed at 10pm before I go to bed (yes, I sleep, on occasion!) so I can’t talk much but luckily my new July Favorites video will do that for me. Click the image above to visit my video on YouTube and you’ll find out about my favorites from the past month – surprisingly, not a whole lot of makeup! I hope you enjoy!! (P.S. Links will be in the description box of the YouTube video page so if you want to know where to find anything, this page is your ticket!)

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.

It’s an annual tradition: the favorite products of 2013. A choice made for nearly every single category imaginable – narrowed down after weeks of planning and crossing off and narrowing down…the Favorites. Oh, boy, this is a good one. I love this list, 2013 was a good makeup year for me. So many great new products to try–and January is looking just as spiffy, I might add. Read on to shop my faves.Read & Comment →

Blog Birthday, October Favorites, & Gidget

Today marks my blog’s 4th birthday. Hard to believe that for four years I’ve kept up one single hobby! And turned it into a business! My how time flies when you’re having fun. I hope you’ve been having fun, too. I wish I had a screenshot of Pretty Shiny Sparkly’s original design…boy that was a doozy!

Today I’m sharing my October favorites with you in a video (above) and Gidget makes a special appearance somewhere in the clip so make sure you watch it all!

September Beauty + Non-Beauty Favorites

Hello friends! I hope you had a great month of September — I know I did! Now that we are full-swing into fall, it’s time to change up the beauty/makeup routine a little (a sure sign of the times for me is when I find myself reaching more for the dark, eggplant-colored nail polish bottle). But during that transitional period this past month, I found a few new favorites that I definitely wanted to share with you all, as per usual.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook got to see this video a whole day early, and those of you who subscribe to my YouTube channel got to see it the moment it came out, so be sure you’re following me on those outlets if you aren’t already!
