April 2020 Hits & Misses

Hey guys! Hope you’re all still doing well.

It was a crazy April, wasn’t it? And I don’t know about you, but for me, April went by a lot faster than the second half of March. Will be interesting to see how fast/slow May goes. I’m still working from home for the time being, but my boyfriend has gone back to work as Florida’s “safer at home” order expired at the end of April and some non-essential businesses (like my boyfriend’s store) have been able to reopen this week.

Anyhow, today I have some favorites from this past month, plus a couple misses. I know some of you haven’t been wearing much makeup or even any makeup since this whole quarantine thing started. I personally have because it just gives me some sense of normalcy. I haven’t really been buying much either (outside of a couple little splurges at the end of this month).

But let’s take a look at what I had been liking a lot in April!

My Top Picks of 2019

Hi guys! Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s now 2020!

Today I have my top picks of 2019 for you. Was going to do a “Top 19 of 2019”, but I couldn’t come up with 19 products to talk about! 2019 was kind of an underwhelming year for me despite the constant makeup releases. Not a whole lot really caught my eye. Instead I was pulling the trigger more on things that had been on my radar for awhile. But there were a few new launches in 2019 I couldn’t get my grubby paws on fast enough!

So… some of the things I’ll be talking about today were in fact new releases in 2019. Others are either rediscovered old favorites or “new to me” things I finally tried after hemming and hawing over them for ages.

So grab a snack, get comfy and let’s get going!

July 2019 Favorites

Hey guys! How’s it going?

Can you believe it’s already August? Summer may be winding down for some of you, but here in Florida, we’ll have hot & humid weather for at least another 3-4 months (things don’t really cool down here much until December at the earliest).

Anyhoo… I got my July favorites for you today! Got a few non-beauty items this month too.

You ready? Let’s go!

Trash Talk: Products I’ve Used Up

Hi guys!

I’m still dealing with moving stuff. Been getting things packed & decluttered. I got the charity thrift shop I’m donating a bunch of stuff to coming next weekend to pick it all up. Mainly just waiting for the renovations on the new place to be finished (that’s all on the contractors doing the work though). But I wanted to jump on here and give you guys a post so you don’t forget about me.

Today? Empties. The empties basket has been piling up and it’s time to empty. Some of these are products I’ve used up months ago and others are more recently used up. I let my empties sit around for too long before I finally do a post about them. My own fault.

Anyhow….. You ready? Let’s get going!
