For my final decluttering episode, I have a major category that I had not yet shown you. I have plenty of lip colors and I try lots of different shades. For reviews, I always like to try at least a nude, a red, a bright and if possible, a fun wacky color. But that means I do end up with quite a few shades that didn’t work for me or that aren’t flattering or wearable at all. Add in a few doubles or shades that I want to be able to wear that just don’t look great on me and you have a big mish mash of lip products that is part usable and part not at all.
Do I now have a beauty room? I am not too sure, but I knew the minute I bought this house that I wanted the spare bedroom to be an office/ blogging space. I mainly just wanted at least one room in the house where I could make a mess if I wanted to and leave it be. Whether it is because I am grading papers at home, or have tons of products lying about for taking pictures: I wanted one room where that wouldn’t be a problem and to separate different parts of my life. This is what I came up with.

Lately I have been loving plenty of products and so I thought it would be time to talk you through them. I don’t do these often as I don’t see how people can have 10+ new favorites every month. I know I can’t. I tried it for a while, but after a few months I found it hard to rave about products continuously. I last did one of these in June and even threw in a few products I do not like. This round though, it’s all products I absolutely adore.

Now that I have been living in my new place for about a month, I have tons of things to show you that I bought for my new home. This haul will focus on the smaller, more accessory style bits that I bought to bring some life to this space. It is now nearly finished: we just need to put up a shelf over the couch and we still need to finish off a floor, but then it is pretty much done. I can’t wait!

When I decluttered all of my makeup for the move, I totally forgot about going through my brushes and makeup tools. Which is why I decided to do that the other day. Of course I had to film it for you guys. So grab a cup of tea and relax, because today I have an array of brushes to show and you’re in for a long one.

It’s the Holiday season and that means that many makeup brands have begun churning out new makeup palettes and limited releases by the busload. I always feel a little bit overwhelmed this time of year and so I thought it would be good to not talk about which palettes are on my wishlist, but palettes I have decided, both past and present, not to get. Because even though I have a large eyeshadow palette collection, this means in no way that I blindly purchase every palette on the market. Here are 15 palettes I decided I don’t need in my life.

And we’re back with a new video! It’s a little wonky and not perfect yet, because I’m afraid to overdo it on the computer now. So this was gloriously edited on MovieMaker. So I apologize for the quality beforehand, because it isn’t grand. Nevertheless, I managed to be back with a new video today and this time I have a fall fashion haul for you with some updated pieces.
