2021: In Review
Hi friends. 2021 was a weird one, wasn't it? It's obviously not a surprise that I have been MIA if you pay attention to things like that. I wasn't just absent here, I took what I like to call a "social media quarantine" for most of the year. Which, I'll get into later at the end just in case you're only here for the beauty and product-related content.
Hey folks, got a review for you today. Especially those of you who suffer from Keratosis Pilaris (or "chicken skin") on your arms or thighs.
I'm Back. What I've Been Loving.
Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted anything, anywhere. I took some time away, for my own health and also because there was a major health emergency that came up in our family. I also took the time to learn as much as I could to better the blog and all content that I'm putting out. However, I missed you and I missed blogging. So I'm back, with a lot to talk about for the next little while.
So, this last year I really discovered Jaime French. I'd always seen her viral stuff but I started watching, literally, all her content this past year. She's hilarious and relatable. She made me laugh when I was sick and I also appreciated her being extremely honest with her own life. Due to how much I enjoy her, she kind of got me back on the Sigma Brushes train again and I hadn't used Sigma brushes in years.
Thank you to Rodan + Fields for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Hi friends! I'm back to update you and talk more in-depth about the Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Regimen that you can now customize to suit your needs. I discussed the new "customizing" option in a previous post that I'll link here. However, I hadn't been able to try the products very much then but now, I can give you my fully formed opinion and which products I prefer in the line.
I've worked with Rodan + Fields a few times and they're a dream to work with, so I'm excited to be doing it again. Also, my sister-in-law absolutely loves their products which is what made me really aware of the brand initially.
Caroline Hirons Winter Kit
Guys!! I've never been more excited during my love of skincare than I am right now. Caroline Hirons released her Winter Kits. There are two. I got kit one. I took SO MANY notes during the reveal video, from what the products were, the donations they were making, the price of each product, and the total combined cost if you bought everything individually. She also done a Instagram video of how to use the kits which I'll leave here. There was also a ton of brand offers that she shared on her blog if you weren't able to get a kit. So let's get right into it!
Valentine's Day Gift Guide: Part 2
The previous blog post and gift guide was all about what would be good gifts, in my opinion, to give to others. This one is going to be the "Treat Yourself" guide, and I'm doing it on Valentine's Day weekend since there are usually sales, you might just get gift cards or cash for a gift, you might get to pick out your gift, so I'm here to help.
The previous one would work as a "Treat Yourself" guide as well but this one is specifically dedicated to skincare, makeup, and body care. It's quite long because there are so many products. Therefore, I'm not going to delve too deep into each product on why it's so wonderful. It's going to be a full-blown list.
Alright, people, Valentine's Day is around the corner. I've been trying to get this guide together but there was so much stuff that I'm going to split it into two parts. This part will be accessories, tried and true traditional gifts, etc.
Fashion Nova: Maven Beauty Review
Hey folks. Let's talk about Fashion Nova's new makeup line, Maven Beauty.
Allure Beauty Box
Hey guys! I know it's been a minute since I've checked in, but I took a short break. Lately, the way the world is currently, I've had quite a bit of anxiety looking at anything online. So I turned off all notifications on my phone. I can tell you that without notifications, I rarely look at social media. I've also spent some time exploring new apps to make "Love and Mascara" a little more fun and jazzed up.
I'm from Tennessee. I'm a makeup and skincare lover. I have always enjoyed creating looks but I love to help people with product knowledge and application even more. I've been able to start blogging and do these things I love because God has seen fit to bless me with the opportunity. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me!
