Kool Shades of Blue

If you know me, you know I’m pretty spontaneous, sometimes a little daring. I had this desire to dye the ends of my hair blue but I never thought this idea would come to fruition. Well, here I am, writing this blog post, with blue hair. I figured, why the heck not, it’s just hair. Now, don’t get me wrong, I would never dye my entire head blue or use permanent color, but a little change can be refreshing. Continue reading


Moroccan Moisture

Does anyone else suffer from the curse of dry skin especially in the dead of winter? I know I do. Moisturizing has always been a part of my daily routine. The first thing I do once I get out of the shower is moisturize and nothing quenches the thirst of my poor dry skin better than Morrocanoil Body Soufflé.

Flawless Foundation

Foundation: a necessity to every girl’s glam get-up. I’ve been wanting to write a post about the foundation I use because it’s simply amazing. I’ve tried and tested countless foundations, fell in love with Estée Lauder Double Wear, and will never wear anything else, ever again.

Estée Lauder’s renowned Double Wear Foundation prides itself on it’s “stay in place” formula and 24 hour staying power, all while providing unbeatable coverage and a flawless finish. Continue reading

Luscious Lashes

Naturally, I have some pretty long eyelashes. I get compliments on my lashes all the time and I have my mascara to thank. Other than some pigmentation variation and whether or not the formula is waterproof, most mascaras are all the same. It’s the wand that makes the difference! Not all wands are created equal. Each mascara wand has a different, specific purpose which in turn, produces different results. I’ve tested all types of brands and various types of wands and have found the holy grail of mascaras: L’Oréal Telescopic Original Mascara. Continue reading

Calling All Blondes: You Need Violet Shampoo

I’m a natural blonde. In the summer, my hair becomes lighter and a tad golden. I hate golden undertones. I occasionally go to the salon to achieve a more neutralized, ashier look but I always end up unsatisfied with an unhappy bank account. I thought, “I need a quicker process, a longer-lasting effect, and a pretty price tag all in one.”

I always knew about violet/purple shampoo but was hesitant to try it. I didn’t want to damage my hair or end up with purple hair! How does purple shampoo work? Let’s take it back to second grade… Purple is the chromatic opposite of yellow on the color wheel.. So a purple shampoo would help counteract the appearance of yellow undertones. When I say “purple” shampoo, I really mean quite a pigmented shade of purple. Continue reading

Must Have Moisturizer

I’m a Sephora fanatic! I’ve tried it all.. Bought it all. I’m currently VIB Rouge status which means I spend enough money at Sephora to be a top-tier member (I apologize to my bank account often).

I have blemish free skin, always have. I have dry skin but by the end of the day, my face can get a tad oily. I’ve tried many different moisturizers to sustain the perfect balance and I’ve found the holy grail: Tidal by Sunday Riley. If you can get past the $65.00 price tag, it’s totally worth it. This moisturizer is very lightweight, as it is considered a water Continue reading
