Get Ready With Me: Gold Smoky Eye + Bright Lip



Presenting my very first Get Ready With Me video. Let me preface this first by say that this is NOT a tutorial and I am no makeup artist. Quite frankly, this video is full of me making really goofy and funny “makeup faces” (ladies, you know what “faces” I’m talking about). But, alas, I decided to go for it!



Wednesday Wisdom: Walking on Glitter



I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression “walking on clouds” or being on “cloud nine”, referring to being really grateful and happy about something that has recently happened in your life. Well, I guess you could say I’m in that ‘state of mind’ right now. However, in my case and being the girl who created the online persona of “Glam Slam” and likes all things glittery and sparkly, I’m going to say that right now I’m “walking on glitter” (cute, right? Ha, ha).



Happy Easter!


Peeps, Easter bunny tracks, pink tulips, bunny cars, egg hunts….oh yes, it’s Easter! I drove up to my father’s house yesterday to celebrate a little early. Between dying Easter eggs, all the chocolate and hiding Easter eggs, I have to say I felt like a kid again! It was so fun! Whether you celebrate Easter or not, I hope you have a great holiday weekend and get to spend some quality time with family and friends! Enjoy!

I may be in a chocolate coma right now……

{Review} Studio Gear Cosmetics CC Cream!



Let’s talk CC cream! With the ever famous BB Cream we all went crazy over now we have the new emerging CC cream? Have you ever tried a CC cream?  Well, let me introduce you to Studio Gear Cosmetics Hydrating CC Cream. Like BB creams, CC creams do prime and perfect, but more specifically they are incredibly light and moisturizing. So, when Studio Gear Cosmetics sent their new cc cream over for me to try, I couldn’t say no.



Wednesday Wisdom: Good Things Take Time



With my good news today, I almost forgot this week’s Wednesday Wisdom post! Better late than never, right?

Good things take time. Really packs a punch doesn’t it? We all have dreams and goals. But, sometimes we don’t have the patience it may take to achieve those dreams. I speak for my self personally here. They say patience is a virtue – well, unfortunately is not a virtue I’ve mastered yet. What I do realize is that you shouldn’t give up on dreams and goals just because it may take longer to achieve them than we once originally thought. Success may come later in life. So have patience friends. It’ll be worth it in the end.

I’ve met (both IRL and online) so many  amazing fellow bloggers, many of them friends that I think I’ll have for a long time. I’m always on the look out for new blogs to check out. However, I also always end up returning to a few old favorites.
