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.
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.
Hey guys! It's time for the main Gift Guides for the gift giving season. This first one is going to be skincare and makeup, since that's what this blog is mainly for. The next part (or parts, who knows) is going to focus on other categories. These are the big ones because it's not about one store, one brand specifically, specific price points, or the normal categories that I talk about.
Alright you all, let's do some more of shopping what we already have in our collection that we've forgot about. Last time I kind of based it around products I'd gotten through Beautylish, please be aware that of course some of the brands have many different retailers. Like a lot of brands are sold at many big beauty and skincare retailers. So don't be afraid to look around and see who has what. This one is going to be based around products I've gotten from Sephora.
Alright guys let's chat about some holiday shopping. I'm going to start with specific stores and then afterwards I'm going to give you just general gift ideas that aren't necessarily all beauty related. In other words quite a few posts are coming.
Starting with Beautylish. As you know I love them. I get sent products from them quite often. I also shop their site quite often. So this is going to be a straight to the point guide of what I think is really good.
Guys Sephora is doing a summer sale. I thought this was their first summer sale but I believe they done one last year. Anyway it's happening now and unfortunately today is the last day. It's 20% off for Rouge, 15% off for VIB. This post is going to be a different approach though than my typical recommendations and I'll explain why below.
I know we just done a bath products haul but I also have a makeup haul to bring you as well. This will be all the products that I've bought not products I've been sent. Since I've been sick I've checked out a lot of new products on ULTA and Sephora. Not to mention ULTA has a 20% off coupon right now until the 30th. Plus, there's a ton of new releases for summer.
Alright, I took a little break from the blog posts to really focus on organizing and thoroughly testing new products. I did that so I could give you as much info as possible and not just a first impression but a true, put to the test, overview/review. Today we're discussing The Organic Skin Co. This is a brand that I had tried their skincare and some of there makeup several months ago and then they sent more makeup related products to do a full face pretty much. It's a really cool brand they're certified vegan, cruelty free and Bio Gro. Keep reading for more info.
Hey guys. I though it'd be a nice change to talk about a few makeup products that I've been loving lately. It should be interesting because I've not bought makeup in a while and just products to try at that point. I've been trying to use products that I already have in my collection. So this is products that I find I reach for the most but they're like unsung heroes at this point.
Well folks, it's about that time for the Sephora Friends and Family Sale. Which usually rolls around about this time of year. I use this sale mainly for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers from the travel section because....why not? I also use it to stock up on things I know that I'll re-buy like favorite foundations, any skincare favorites like cleansers or staples. I usually wait until this sale or anytime I have gift cards to buy things that I don't purchase very much at all like perfume.
So per usual I'm going to give you my buying guide. I've done this for several years where I recommend not necessarily "new" products, but products I've tested and liked through out the year and feel comfortable recommending. Of course, if there is anything you've had your eye on, now would be the time to buy it.
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!
