Bio Ionic & MONAT Review

I meant to post this a while ago but life gets in the way, oops! So here we go, I wanted to share with you how I style my hair with my 24k gold curling wand and my experience so far with MONAT. For the first time of the video I'll be styling my hair and giving you tips to hold your curl longer. If you want to watch the review only skip the video to 12:45! Reach out to Amy with MONAT if you have questions, she's seriously passionate!! At the time I filmed this video I had only used my shampoo and conditioner three times, now I have been using for over a month and still loving it. I did get flaky for a few days and after reaching out to Amy…

Beauty Bag for Traveling – video with makeup + reviews

Ladies I often try to edit my suitcase and toiletry bag when traveling. In fact my dream is to be able to fit everything in a carry-on bag and little by little I'm getting there. I used to be that girl that flew with a ton of bags and wouldn't wear half of the stuff...such a waste of space and let's be honest with the airline companies charging extra for check-in bags who wants to go there!! Absolutely no judgement if you do ;) One day perhaps when I master the skill of editing clothes/shoes and bags I shall film a video for you on that, meantime I'm sticking with the beauty bag which is a huge progress, don't you think??! So here goes a quick vid on what I brought along on my…

Hi boys and girls, how's your summer going? Well I know it's not quite summer yet but it sure feels like it is here in Indy.....I've been meaning to put together a video with my summer essentials and after gathering my "can't live without" products I ended up missing a couple 😰 blaming on hectic mommy life!!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2710223"] When I filmed the video the weather was pretty amazing and humidity free, no longer like that let me tell ya!

Shine-Free Face for Summer

It's that time of the week again, time to talk beauty! I have to confess that beauty routines in the summer season can be tricky and sometimes pretty messy. Especially if you are in the heat of the midwest which is not a dry heat (that I so love) but instead a wet and yucky kinda heat. Ok, I'm giving you lots of visuals but don't go away yet!!!!! This week's video is one that I hope will help you layer the foundation to a healthy satin face and keep that stubborn shine away from your pretty face! Keep in mind my skin is combination so you might want to switch products up depending on your needs. I've been testing out this routine for a few weeks now and can tell you it's working…

Summer Basics + Beauty Tricks!

I've been all about the basics lately, very different than the girl who left fashion school 7 years ago...thank goodness for matured style! Anyway, I wore two looks this past week that made me so happy, hahaha I know I'm cheesy but what can say, some things never really do mature!! So if you're also into the basics that you can dress up or down you'll love these! Scroll all the way down for a summer beauty trick bonus video πŸ’‹ [show_shopthepost_widget id="2680290"] Note, my beloved Nixon watch has been restocked! Note 2: At work I replaced thisΒ ripped white denin for white pants without the rips and sans hat! Next is my favorite white pleated blouse that's no longer available (bummer) but I did find a few similar styles. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2680323"] I also replaced…

Sigma Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set – Insta Eye Tutorial

Hey ladies, it feels like forever since I uploaded a beauty tutorial. These videos are the type of thing that the more you do the better they turn out except that life makes me take such long pauses between filming them that I'm always second guessing myself (oh the life of a blogger/youtuber). Anyway I wanted to show you a quick party eye tutorial to show you how and when you would use the different brushes in an eye set and I hope I accomplished just that! I've been using Sigma makeup brushes ever since I started to get a taste for makeup and they have been sturdy and strong throughout 5+ years of working in the makeup industry and filming videos. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2676894"] Hope you enjoy…
