Her Glossiness

I’m totally not a lipstick person. I’ll pick gloss any day of the week. In fact, I’m sort of a lip gloss addict. When I saw this new Benefit, Her Glossiness Set I snatched it up right away! Its three different double ended lip glosses in fun light shades that are perfect for fall! They’ve … Continue reading Her Glossiness

Ever since I began wearing perfume, I’ve always gravitated toward scents that contained notes of vanila. The warmness of those tones have always complimented me the best and they just plain make me happy to smell. I recently picked up LAVANILA’s Vanilla Grapefruit perfume and it’s my new obsession! Vanilla and Grapefruit may not sound … Continue reading LAVANILA

Soap and Glory

Everyone knows how I feel about Boots products. (For all you newcomers, I LOVE them!) So when I was wandering around Target this weekend and came across the Soap and Glory line I wondered if I had enough love in my heart for another budget British cosmetic line.

Coco avant Chanel

They’ve watched me take painstaking care to coordinate everything I plan … Continue reading Beauty in a Box

You shouldn’t have two completely different color schemes, stick to what looks good in your skin tone but choose warmer more wintry tones to … Continue reading Fall Fantasy

Bootie Pies

Post by Beauty Snob Michelle I want to preface this entry by saying that I live in Boston. It gets really cold and really snowy here. That leads to some necessary evils like wearing Ugg boots. I know all the arguments against them. I’ve heard them all and made a few myself. But the fact … Continue reading Bootie Pies

Have a happy lavender day!

Another amazing place I visited when I was in Maui was the Alii Kula Lavender farm. I’ve already talked about all the great benefits of lavender so I won’t lecture all of you on it again. I did learn some new facts about lavender though, like the fact that you can use it as an … Continue reading Have a happy lavender day!
