Last year I showcased my favorite polishes from 2016, and was immediately excited to share what new polishes I would share within the next year. Throughout the year, I made sure to write down my favorite polishes, because although I didn't buy that many, I knew I'd forget with how many times I change my polish. Well, after a year of not buying as much as the previous year and going to the Nail Polish Convention in NY, I was so stoked to bring some amazing polishes to my favorites post this year. The downside of this is that just like always, indie polishes are limited edition. If you can find them in de-stashes or join the FB groups to find out when they'll come back again, I highly recommend that.Read More
With every new year, comes new favorites. While I'm someone who tends to have favorites throughout the years, it's awesome to explore the brands and products that really out shined all the others within a year. Although I was on a small budget, and kept my shopping to a minimal compared to past years, I still found some products that really ended up being star products. I even have some that have become holy grail!
Enough about all that, let's get into the products themselves!Read More
Skincare has been a huge and long journey for me. For those that have been friends of mine since High School, or even college, they can attest to my issues with acne. Not only did I suffer from cystic acne, I was a serious picker (I still do at times, I know...don't judge me). My skincare journey all started with Lush Cosmetics. Yes, I got into 'natural' skincare with a brand that isn't truly that natural. But regardless, it was a step in the right direction and looking back, I'm glad I took that step. But that was just ONE step out of 3 major ones.Read More
We've all been there! Whether we forgot someone last minute, or just chose to wait until the very last week before the holiday. That's where I come in (along with every other beauty blogger and beauty publication), and help you with the best last minute gift ideas and purchases. None of these will be online purchases because let's be real, they won't make it on time, unless you're ordering from Amazon Prime.Read More
One of the first things I freaked out about when I went cruelty free, was perfume. I was a SERIOUS perfume hoarder and have gradually started becoming one once again. But this time, with cruelty free and handmade ones! Wylde Ivy was a brand I was first introduced to, via some other cruelty free bloggers. I had kept hearing the name and then was continuously told I needed to try the perfumes. It goes without saying, I finally followed the hype and ended up doing exactly that.Read More
