wet n wild coloricon loose pigments: yay or nay?


It isn't often that limited edition Wet n Wild products are available where I live. Every once and a while, there will be a small, understated stand with a handful of products. But most of the time? There is very little. Which is a shame, since Wet n Wild is such a standout drugstore brand. They have a ton of fabulous products. In fact, almost everything that I have tried from them has been fantastic quality. Especially their eyeshadows! So of course, when I saw a tiny little stand of limited edition Wet n Wild Halloween themed makeup, I went for it. In addition to the cream face palette that appeared in my Halloween post (it helped me create this Sally-inspired look) there were also a couple of loose pigments to choose from.

zaful review: fashion, makeup, and accessories


It gives me a thrill. Opening up the mailbox to see a package full of new clothes, makeup, and accessories. A flurry of questions instantly run through my mind, like: What is inside? Will everything fit? Will I fall in love with it all? That feeling of giddy anticipation essentially sums up my typical experience of online shopping. While I do not enjoy the waiting part (I am someone who struggles with patience), I do enjoy the moment when it arrives. A little while ago, I placed an order with Zaful that included a sweater, sweatshirt, two chokers, and a makeup palette.

shopping my stash: too faced power of makeup palette


Sometimes I forget. I'll fall into a routine of using the same eyeshadow palettes for a while, then mix it up, and fall back into that same habit. The reason for this is pretty simple: I forget what I have. Unless there is a specific idea that has popped into my head, a palette I've remembered, or I actually have time to dig through my collection (for a special occasion rather than a quick-and-easy everyday look), then I am likely to stick to my trusted favourites. As a result? Amazing palettes don't get nearly enough use. One of my resolutions from this past year was to change that. To focus on using more of what I have. Which is how I found myself doing another self-imposed shop my stash challenge.

sales, savings, and seriously stunning fashion with yoins.


High up on the list of things I love? Shopping and sales. There is something indescribably exciting about a gorgeous new outfit that won't cause you to overspend. As great as that feeling is? It is becoming harder and harder to come by. Especially during the pre-holiday season. Retail stores have a habit of increasing their prices in preparation for the hoards of seasonal shoppers that will soon begin their search for the perfect gift or holiday outfit. You don't have to worry about that with Yoins! They have beautiful clothes and accessories....not to mention some fabulous deals.

if you can't stop thinking about it...buy it.


Shopping and travel are two of my favourite pastimes. Every once and a while? Those loves are combined. That happened recently when my mom and I took a shopping bus tour to Eerie, Pennsylvania. We actually took this same trip last year and had such a great time that we decided to go again! Essentially, it is a three-day trip, full of shopping, shopping, and more shopping. Since the holiday season is quickly approaching (can you believe it?!) this seemed like the perfect time to share a little bit of my experience with you all. And hopefully inspire you with your own seasonal shopping. Here goes....

look stylish this season with fashionmia


Few things inspire me as much as fashion. There is something about the way a perfectly chosen outfit can make you shine from the inside out! Suddenly, you feel transformed. You hold your head a little higher....you walk a little taller....and you are eager to run into someone you haven't seen in a while. For me? Fashion is confidence. It might have something to do with the cut, the pattern, or the fabric of a particular piece, but whatever the reason, the right outfit can make you feel amazing. That is why I have been doing a bit of browsing lately. I've been checking out the wide selection of items available from FashionMia.

achieving happy and healthy skin.


You’ve heard it before. Taking care of your skin is a must! It is the best way to look beautiful! There is no doubt about it. Proper skincare is important. Which is exactly why magazines publish article after article about the dangers of not washing your face, not using the right products, and so on. (Which only manages to create serious feelings guilt when you leave your makeup on overnight!) Lately, I have been thinking about my own habits. In terms of both nutrition and my regular skincare routine.
