A Few of My Favorite Things: May 2021

With Spring winding down and the first unofficial day of Summer just around the corner (Memorial Day!) along with my still being in Nevada as I write this- my favorites for May have been a small assortment of products/items that have helped me through the transitioning of the seasons and the scorching desert temperatures- be […]

My Spring Makeup Routine!

As much as I love (and rock) a good neutral, smoky eye or a deep and dark matte lip in the colder months- I’ve been having a lot of fun getting bright and experimental with my Spring and Summer makeup collections in recent years- especially in the past year since this pandemic started.

My Spring Makeup Routine!

I’m well aware that not many of us have been actively wearing makeup in recent weeks. Not with quarantines, shelter-in-place orders and working remotely as we navigate through the COVID-19 situation. Getting dolled up just to stay at home seems like a waste of time and product, I’m sure. But I’ve found that every once […]
