review + reveal: charmed aroma mermaid candle

Mermaid themed items are always a good idea. Countless brands have released mermaid inspired items over the years. From mermaid eyeshadow palettes to mermaid tail brushes...everything is fair game. Even candles, it seems! Not too long ago, I was gifted a Mermaid Candle from the Charmed Aroma Under the Sea Ring Collection. This mermaid inspired candle is oh-so-themed and contains an unforgettable accessory inside. Ready for another review and reveal? Here goes....

be a unicorn in a field of horses.

One of my closest friends often refers to me as her unicorn. At first, I didn't know quite what to make of this. What did it mean? Was it a good thing? A bad thing? Turns was her way of celebrating my unique and colourful personality. Though I am very shy by nature and not exactly a people person, my interests add colour to who I am. (I love obscure holiday movies, 70s pop music, and Murder She Wrote.) I like what I like and I refuse to be apologetic about those things! I am young at heart, love colour and glitter, and believe in true love and happy endings. It has been about eleven months since I last spent time with that friend in person. Today...I am missing her more than usual. So, I decided to do a little inspiration post. The theme is of course, unicorns. Take a peek at some unicorn inspired makeup, nails, hair, accessories and more.

urban decay stoned vibes eyeshadow palette (review + video)

Few things make me happier than themed makeup products. There is something so fun and whimsical about them! In the past, there have been more than a handful of themed items in my collection. Too Faced is well-known for their themes (you can check out almost all of my Too Faced blog posts for proof of that) but other brands like to dip their toes in the water as well. Take the latest release from Urban Decay as an example. The Stoned Vibes eyeshadow palette is all about crystals, stones, and good vibes. Ready to take a look inside? See how it performs? Here is a full review, makeup look, and live swatches.

review: juicy couture perfume set

Scents are incredibly powerful. The right perfume can instantly transport you back to another time and place. Make you feel polished and put together. Express deeply rooted emotions. Each spritz of perfume has the ability to unlock a truly unique and unforgettable moment. Ahh...bliss. Needless to say, I am a massive fan of fragrances. (Don't believe it? Be sure to check out my Perfume Collection YouTube video from a few years back.) It is an essential part of my day to day life. Over the holidays, my husband gifted me a Juicy Couture perfume set with three different mini bottles. I have been putting them to good use recently and wanted to share some of my thoughts. Keep reading to find out more about this set and the fragrances inside.

new in: fashionable footwear (glitter edition)

What is it about glitter? It makes everything seem a little bit better. The way it sparkles and shines in the light immediately makes the world seem happier and full of hope. Over the years, glitter has taken over most parts of my life. From makeup to nail polish to is absolutely everywhere. And I wouldn't have it any other way! More recently, this glitter obsession has carried over to my footwear as well. Over the holiday season, I was gifted two very sparkly pairs of shoes. One was a stylish pair of sneakers and the other was an over the top pair of boots. Winter, spring, summer, and fall, one thing is certain: I will be glittery from head to toe. Ready to take a peek at these new items? Here goes...
