My Quest For The Perfect Nude Lipstick

If you have followed my blog from the beginning, first of all, thank you, and secondly, you are well aware of my quest for the perfect wedding lipstick. I really should document my journey for makeup more thoroughly, but sometimes I get caught up in the quest and forget the picture taking part (which is […]

December’s Beauty Round Up

December is a busy month for pretty much everyone. In between shopping for presents and staying on top of work, you have to squeeze in the holiday parties, cookie making, card sending (My family card picture is below), and more. It’s easy to let our self-care fall aside during this time, and while this can […]

Let’s talk about skin safety (because yes it matters in winter too)

I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to visit my sister this Thanksgiving. I’m lucky that I got the chance while she is living in the Caribbean. Yes, I escaped the cold of the Midwest for a whole week, and don’t worry, I have plenty of cute vacation photos to show you. If you […]

Summer Is Ending, But The Summer Feeling Doesn’t Have To

It’s officially August, which means that summer is sizzling to its end. For some people, that means heading back to school. For others, it means ending their vacations, or it possibly means sending their kids back to school. For me, it means returning to school as an educator. Like everyone else with a career, my […]

Things I Love

Loyal readers, thank you for your patience. Eric and I have been undergoing some major life changes (hello, home ownership), and so blogging has taken a back seat to packing, and cleaning, and moving. Luckily, I need a break from unpacking and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than at my blog. Unfortunately for me, because […]

I’m Looking for A Sleeping Mask

I feel like this has been the longest winter ever, which is weird because the weather hasn’t been THAT bad. Maybe it’s because it’s still January, or maybe it’s just because of who I am, but I’ve been feeling like I need to invest in a nighttime sleeping mask. This summer, right before my wedding, […]

The Perfume Diaries: Pillowtalk Poet

I never really understood the whole perfume craze. Most things smelled pretty and I would gladly wear whatever. I didn’t understand the idea of  signature scents, and perfume samples were my least favorite kind. However, that all changed once I got engaged. It didn’t happen all at once though. In fact, I think it all […]

My Favorite Face Mask (From Hawaii)

Wow, can time fly! It feels like just a little bit ago I was returning from my honeymoon, and then I looked up and a month of the school year flew by. Thinking about my honeymoon made me remember this great face mask that I picked up in Hawaii. I waited to try it until […]

My Favorite Matte Lipstick

In the past, I told you how my sweet husband gave me his Sephora Birthday Gift. Well, today I’m going to tell you about my Sephora Birthday Gift. This year, I chose the Tarte Birthday Gift, complete with blush and matte lip paint. Truth be told, I haven’t tried the blush yet. I lay off […]

The Perfect Lip Scrub

Right before I left for my wedding and honeymoon, I made a last minute lip scrub purchase. I realized I needed one, but I was having a hard time finding one that looked like it was of decent quality for a decent price. Lucky for me, it was also right around Amazon’s Prime Day. As […]
