    Beauty Find: Summer Makeup Essentials

    Happy Monday! Excuse me for being MIA, work was a little hectic last week with Memorial Day Weekend. But I’m back with some exciting new posts ahead! I haven’t had a beauty find in a while, and thought this was the perfect time to share some of my favorite makeup products for the summer. Less is more, and that rings true in the South Carolina heat. When I’m getting ready this time of year, I want something light and provides that “summer glow”. These five products are usually all I use unless I need something dresser. Bare Minerals Foundation Powder I can’t use liquid foundation based on my skin type,…

    Friday Find: Kristin Ess Thickening Spray

    This Friday find also counts as a beauty find, but I couldn’t wait to share this one with you all! I have spent the past 6 months going through so much dry shampoo, and not for what it should be used for. But since I have very thin hair, I found the dry shampoo was thickening it and giving the much needed volume to my flat self. However, I was going through so much in 1 week, and dry shampoo was getting all over my clothes, I needed a new product to help my hair. Cue in Kristen Ess Thickening Spray! I have been using the shampoo and conditioner products…

    Bathtub Essentials

    Who doesn’t love thirty minutes of self care with a luxurious bath? Guess what? It does not take a fancy bathtub to have that “spa feeling and experience”. It just takes a few items to use in your bathroom space.¬† Some of you have asked about a couple of bathroom accessories I’ve had on my Instagram stories, and today I am sharing¬† what I think are those “bathtub essentials” so you can add them to your room. The first thing you need is a bath caddy, and one that will preferably hold all of your needs in one place. Safely too, I might add. I found this one on Amazon,…

    Friday Find: Glowbiotics MD Probiotic Soothing Gel Face Mask

    I haven’t featured a skin care product in a while, so for today’s Friday Find I thought I would feature a new face mask my mother in law gave to me! It is the Glowbiotics MD Probiotic Soothing Gel Mask that I use about twice a week, and have loved this addition to my regimen. Benefits of this mask include hydration, reduction in inflammation and redness, and provides a probiotic layer on the skin for added protection. I did not think my combination skin would need a hydrating mask, but with all the cleansing and exfoliating you do to your face, this is a needed step. If you feel like…

    Needed: Travel Cosmetic Bag

    Here’s to the start of a new week! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, we spent it relaxing and enjoying Columbia, while also cleaning up our old apartment. We said goodbye to our first place together, and while I’ll miss it a little bit, we do love our new home each and everyday. For the past several weeks, I have been on the hunt for a good cosmetic bag to travel with. Several years ago my best friend gave me the perfect set for being a bridesmaid, but sadly I have worn it out and needed to replace it. I had the hardest time finding something I would love…

    Friday Find: Estee Lauder Sculpting Gloss

    Today’s Friday Find is from my grandmother’s makeup gift bag. Yeap, you heard that correctly! My grandmother usually purchases enough from Estee Lauder to receive their makeup bag, and whichever products she has leftover that she doesn’t use, she sends to her grand-daughters. This time she sent me the Estee Lauder Sculpting Lip Gloss from their Pure Envy Collection, and I have found myself using it everyday since then! The lip gloss starts out almost sheer, but the longer you wear it, the more you start to see that deep berry color. It is a gloss, so you have that shine, but it stays on for extended periods of time…
