Shower Favorites

Here are my current favorites for in the shower! All except one I've mentioned before, but thought I would do a proper mini review of each.

Bite Beauty Swatches

I've always been drawn to Bite Beauty lip products, and have tried out quite a lot since the brand launched. Here are the colors that have managed to stay in my collection!

Lip Pencil Stash

Though I don't wear lipstick a ton, I do try to wear liner with anything that's not more sheer/balmy. Often I opt for a clear liner, simply because it's easy...but since last Fall I've found a closely matching liner actually seems to work better (it's easier to create my lip shape with a liner and then fill in vs. using a clear liner and then using the lipstick bullet to shape). Here are the non-clear lip liners that are currently in my stash...

Nails in Shades of Blue

I love blue on my nails! I especially look forward to the warm weather when I start wearing lighter blues again. Here's my current stash of blue polish...

Empties: April 2016

I finished a lot of product January through March and purged a lot as well. I think it's probably one of my most successful quarters - as such, it seemed pretty daunting to put it all into a single post. I also thought it would probably be way too much to read, even for an Empties fanatic (like myself ha ha!) so I've opted instead to just leave it at I FINISHED A LOT OF STUFF!!! LOL

Surratt Surreal Real Skin Foundation Wand

I don't think I've been this excited about a makeup product in awhile - I mean I've loved things, sure, but this foundation is absolutely fantastic. There are a few minor points that I'm not thrilled about, but they have to do with price and packaging - the foundation itself is seriously SO SO SO good!!!

Recap: April 2016

I used the same core group of products for April. Actually - think I've been using mostly the same products for the last couple of months, barring a few things I've been testing!!

Sephora Sale Goodies: April 2016

It's funny...the difference between 15% and 20% seems like a lot. For this sale I kept saying, eh it's only 15%. But during the Fall sale I say, oh boy it's 20%!!! All that to say I couldn't decide what to get. My cart changed 10000x's, and at one point I even thought I wouldn't get anything. 

Snapchat Tutorial

I downloaded Snapchat a long time ago...tried to use it...promptly got frustrated and decided I didn't get why it was so popular. For some reason I decided to try it again, and kind of forced myself to learn how to use it. Now it's my favorite form of social media!! 

Why? Because it's so casual - no automated tweets, no carefully curated Instagram photos...

Herbivore Pink Clay Cleansing Bar Soap

I've been interested in exploring the Herbivore line after seeing their Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist here and there on blogs and Instagram. When I was ready to make an actual purchase, the Mist was OOS on Sephora so I decided to get the Pink Clay Cleansing Bar Soap instead - you know, just so I could try something!!

Makeup Collection: April 2016

My last Makeup Collection post, HERE, was a little over a year ago. 

I've done a sh*t ton of purging toward the end of last year and over the last many months. Of course, that's somewhat normal around here, but I feel I've outdone myself this time!

Recap: March 2016

I feel like I've made some headway in the not-getting-suckered-into-every-gwp part of my life, and let me tell you March was a BIG test.

New In

Hi, guys!!! Sorry I've been gone...it was an unintended absence filled with family stuff and more work than usual! It's nothing bad, just a lot more time consuming and stressy than normal (and my life is generally not filled with stress!!!) so my head was anywhere but blogging ha ha! Hopefully things are back to normal, and I can resume my regularly irregular blog schedule :-P

Instead of jumping back into the blog pool with some long winded reviews or Empties post (those will be later LOL), thought I would start off easy by showing you some new beauty goodies I have yet to try!

#bbloggers Notebook

Bronzer Bunny and I have often talked about doing something creative - still blog related, but just something different than talking about beauty!

We've tossed around a lot of ideas, and for our first project we decided to do a #bbloggers dedicated journal/notebook!

Samples & GWP's...A Reality Check...

It's that time of year again...when all the big GWP's start showing up - Nordstrom just had one (and has always has smaller ones), as has Beauty.com. SpaceNK is coming up, not to mention the one I wait twice a year for...the Barneys Love Yourself Event. Oh, and CultBeauty should be sometime soon-ish. And those are just the ones I remember off hand, not the ones that I constantly stumble upon!!
