Styling brogues

Styling brogues

Brogues are some of my favorite shoes to wear in the spring and summer time. I love the androgynous vibe they give to any outfit and I own several in different colors, just because I love them so much. Now if you don’t know what a brogue is, it is an oxford shoe, but with a distinct pattern on it and it’s a men’s wear staple. This is how I like to wear them.

Popular books I didn’t like

So I love to read, but not every read can be a success. So there are plenty of books that I read that are a bit of a let down. And some of those books are or were very popular. But just because they are popular doesn’t mean that everyone will enjoy them. Of course if these are some of your favorite books, then please don’t be offended. There was just something about these that didn’t work out for me. Here’s why. popular books I didn't like

Ole Henriksen Oil Control cleanser

Ole Henriksen Oil Control cleanser

This cleanser I picked up on my Sephora points. I had never tried anything by Ole Henriksen before, but I knew that I had heard some great things about their products. But when Cassy from Baubles & Knots tried her freebee set, I knew I had to bump it up the ‘to try’ list. I have yet to try the 7 day transformation kit, but I decided to move onto the cleanser sooner rather than later. These are my thoughts.  ole henriksen find your balance oil control cleanser review swatch

H&M Beauty blush

H&M Beauty blush

Shame on me! I’ve been a bad beauty blogger. Why? Because this review is so long overdue. I have had these products for close to four years and I just never got around to writing this up. And that even though one of these blushes is one of my all time favorites. What’s wrong with me? So even though I should have definitely made this blog post a long time ago, let’s not ramble and get down to business and on to the review.  H&M beauty blush review swatch cantaloupe tawny peach

Beauty raves

Remember when I did a video about my beauty pet peeves and things I don’t like about the online beauty community? But of course it is easy to rant about all the drama, but that doesn’t mean that the beauty community & industry isn’t bringing anything good for people. That is why I figured I would balance things out and do a video on 10 reasons why I love the online beauty community.  beauty raves

Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques makeup sponge

Beauty Blender vs Real Techniques makeup sponge

Let’s talk cult beauty products for a minute okay? In the world of makeup there are these products that quickly and consistently have a cult status. In terms of makeup application tools, the makeup sponge, once shunned as a useless, made a huge comeback when Beauty Blender launched their revolutionary new sponge. And as with everything that becomes an overnight sensation, other brands started copying it. I already reviewed the Primark one, which I love. However, the original copy of the Beauty Blender is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.  beauty blender real techniques makeup sponge review
