New Favorite (Eye) Palette

I had no idea that Urban Decay was going to be releasing a 3rd palette in their Naked series and was very excited to make this discovery soon after it was released. As much as I love makeup, I don’t necessarily keep up with the “latest and greatest” because that ends up just being too […]

Greasy or Dry Hands–What’s Your Preference?

Personally, I’d say, “NEITHER!“ And yet…I was starting to think that these were the only options available for hand cream formulas.

L’Occitane is a well-known brand for high-quality body care products. If you have ever visited their shop, you’ll agree that they have charming little […]

Nail Polish: SpaRitual

image borrowed from SpaRitual.com Something about these nail polish bottles just makes you feel pampered; and the name whisks you away to a place where lounging around in a fluffy white bathrobe with baby pink toe separators on your feet while sipping on water with cucumber slices is perfectly acceptable behavior. The SpaRitual lacquers caught […]
