Coca Cola is one of the most recognizable and well-known brands in the world. So, when I stumbled across a Coca Cola themed eyeshadow palette? There was no question. It needed to come home with me. Not only was the concept itself intriguing but it was also a collaboration with Morphe (a brand that has been part of my makeup collection for quite a while). I couldn't wait to put the themed colours to the test. Curious about this unexpected release? Want to see inside? Keep reading for a full review, video, and makeup look featuring the Coca Cola x Morphe Eyeshadow Palette.

Glitter is always a good idea. That is something that I have said time and time again...because it's true! Glitter has a way of making everything more beautiful. It adds an unexpected dose of fun to whatever it encounters. When it comes to makeup and beauty products, glitter is even more fabulous. Though some people prefer matte shades, my world is at least 99% glitter on a good day. Which is why it was extra exciting to be able to test and try a set of five different glitter eyeliners. The Glamorous & Sparkly Eye Collection from Lise Watier was an unexpected and exciting birthday gift. With five different glitters to put to use, it was hard to know where to start. Eventually, I made a decision! Ready to see how it turned out? Here is a recent makeup look that I created using some of the glitters from this oh-so-sparkly set.

In the middle of blow drying my hair....poof! My beloved Kardashian Beauty hair dryer stopped working. This was upsetting for a few reasons. Partly because half of my hair was still wet and partly because I really loved that hair dryer. It was something I had used for the last five years or so. Then suddenly, it was time to say so long. When it came to choosing a replacement, I was totally clueless. What did I need? What did I want? How much was I willing to spend? In the end, it was the Infiniti Premier hair dryer by Conair that entered my life. Keep reading to find out what the features are and how the hair dryer performed.

Barbie has always been a part of my life. Believe it or not, my very first word was "Barbie." Not mom or dad....Barbie. I guess I have always had good taste! There has always been something about this iconic doll. She could do absolutely anything she set her mind to. Barbie could be a veterinarian, teacher, astronaut, singer, artist. You name it, she could do it. Growing up, I loved everything about her. I loved her positive attitude in the commercials and cartoons. I loved her fabulous sense of style. I loved that she seemed to be able to take on the world! To me, Barbie represented confidence, intelligence, and poise. That's the magical thing about Barbie. She can mean so many different things to so many different people. So, when I was given a few items from the Pur x Barbie collection for my birthday last month, it was beyond exciting. Everything was pink, sparkly, and fabulous. Ready to find out more? Here is a mini haul and review of the items.

There is nothing better than the luxury of time. Those moments when your schedule is clear and you have a significant portion of the day to do whatever you want. Sometimes, I spend moments like that writing or writing and other times, I spend moments like that creating a fabulous makeup look. Unfortunately, not all days allow for free time. In fact, most of them have been pretty full lately. So as much as I love spending as long as I want playing with my favourite beauty products...a quick five minute face is sometimes all that there is time for. Recently, I needed to pull together a makeup look that was quick, easy, and still a little glam. So I used some tried and true products and a small neutral palette that I hadn't reached for in a while. Ready to take a closer look at the items used? And see the results of that five minute face? Here is a super simple makeup look that included both drugstore and high end products.

Every wardrobe needs those must have items. Like a little black dress, a durable pair of jeans, a classic button down blouse, and a comfortable sweater. Though certain pieces can contribute to a well rounded wardrobe... one particular area is often overlooked: shapewear. The items worn underneath all of those must have items are just as important. If not more so! Shapewear provides support and structure. It can create a streamlined look and boost confidence. When it comes to choosing shapewear, there are many different styles to consider. It all depends on what you need. Overwhelmed? No to worry. Sculptshe makes it easy to create a truly well rounded wardrobe.

Are you a Harry Potter fan? The books and movies have been a part of my life for years and years. I still vividly remember attending book release parties and midnight screenings. Oh, youth! Even though I am older (and possibly wiser)…Harry Potter is still a significant part of my life. I love to re-read the books every once and a while and the movies always make me smile. Plus, I have the Monster Book of Monsters and a replica wand on display in my home office. Needless to say, Harry Potter is something I never outgrew. Which explains my more recent purchase from Charmed Aroma. It is a Hufflepuff themed candle with a necklace inside. Now, this isn't my first time purchasing a Harry Potter themed item from the brand. Their cauldron candle revealed a sparkly potion bottle ring that I reviewed here. Want to find out what was inside the Hufflepuff candle? Keep reading for a Charmed Aroma review and reveal.

One/Size is a relatively new makeup brand. It launched in mid-summer and has since released a small handful of products. One of those items is the Visionary Eyeshadow Palette. This isn't something that I was certain about at first, but I took the plunge. Thank goodness! This is an eyeshadow palette that has some seriously unexpected takes on neutral shades. Along with a bold blue shade to mix things up. (You can take a closer look at the palette and read my full review here.) Since I have been making good use of this eyeshadow palette lately...it only made sense to do a 2 looks 1 palette post dedicated to it. So, here goes! Two looks created using the One/Size Visionary Eyeshadow Palette.
