{Beauty} How To Get Ready Fast!

get ready fast products










I am not a morning person and I never have been. I wish I could be. I also LOVE my sleep. Therefore, when it comes to getting up super early (well, super early in my mind at least) each day during the week to get ready for work, honestly the last thing I want to do is take a hour or more getting ready in the morning. Let me be honest – I AM LAZY.


A Few of My Favorite Things #10

Few of My Fav Things #10










It’s funny how your “beauty routine” changes as life goes on and you get older. My beauty routine has definitely changed over the years. I used to always be that women you’d see with a full face of makeup and perfectly styled hair (well…maybe not perfectly 😉 ). I used to never leave the house without makeup on .


{Beauty} #NailPolishAddict


Are you a beauty product addict…hoarder? More specifically, do you “hoard” nail polishes like it’s no one’s business? Guess what – so do I. #NoShame people. Seriously though, what is it about nail polishes? Why are they so easy to “collect”? These my friends are questions I’m pretty sure I will continue to ask myself for the foreseeable future.  😉

I thought I’d share my “collection” and obsession with you! Surely I’m not the only #nailpolishaddict  out there, right?

What are some of your favorite polishes?

Can you believe it’s already November? Wow. Thanksgiving and then….Christmas is rightaround the corner! Geez. While most of my month of October was spent preparing for and then moving to a new apartment, I did find time to discover a few favorites I thought I’d share with you. A few beauty items, a good read, a random thing or two and some great T.V.    🙂



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!



My First Julep Maven Box!

I make it no secret that I might be a bit obsessed with nail polish. As shallow as this may sound, I don’t fully feel put together without my nails neatly painted. Even if it’s just a period of a couple of days without polish or chipped polish, I feel a bit weird. That very fact in itself is a bit weird, I know, but what can I say? That’s just me. So, when I came across a chance to get a couple of new luxury polishes each month to try out, how could I say no?



A Few of My Favorite Things #3

It’s my December favorites! Better late than never, right?  😉  I’ve been saying this for the over a week now, but I still can’t believe that Christmas is over and that it’s now 2013! Wow! Anyway, as always, December was a great month. It is and always will be my favorite time of year. Time to feel the holiday spirit, spend time with friends and family and then of course well a new year!

There actually were quite a few things that I loved in the month of December, the above featured are just a few. I am so glad that I started vlogging this year along with my blog; just another great way to share and connect with you guys! Thanks so much for your time this year and I look forward to a fabulous 2013!

My Summer Makeup Routine

My summer makeup routine


I’m sure I’m not the only one faced with the dilemma of a good makeup routine in such sweltering heat!  Summer weather calls for a much lighter look and the use of products that can help you “beat the the heat”! Through a little research ( i.e.  YouTube videos/tutorials and the blog of the fabulous KeikoLynn), I’ve found what so far has been a great summer beauty routine and has has definitely helped me “beat the heat”!
