The Makeup Show Orlando: Post-Event Recap

Hey guys! How’s it going?

As you know, the other weekend, I got to attend The Makeup Show Orlando, which is one of the only beauty trade shows that’s open to only professionals in the industry (or if you’re currently going to school for a beauty-related career). It’s really an interesting take because as a result, it focuses on professional makeup artists, education and other related topics.

The Makeup Show sent me their recap report and it’s quite interesting even if you’re just a beauty enthusiast, as it touches on various trends that are currently on the rise, what trends are shifting away, and what to keep an eye out for even if you’re just a consumer.

So, today I’m going to give you guys a bit of a breakdown of the report from the event. I’m sure they’ll be something that will catch your attention.

You ready? Let’s get going!

Collective Haul: Sephora & Ulta

Hey guys! How’s it going? Have a good weekend? Do anything fun?

I know I’ve been super lax on the posts lately. It’s a combination of writer’s block and I’ve been busy with a special project that’s not related to my blog, but it’s taken up a lot of my free time.

Anyhow, I got a little collective haul for you guys today. I took a little “me time” and went to Sephora & Ulta over the weekend to pick up some stuff. Most of it is repurchases, but for some items, I’m trying out some different brands.

Want to see what I got? Keep on reading…

When You Have Too Many Empties – The Skincare Edit

Hey guys! How’s it going?

I know I’ve been a little MIA again this week. Been having laptop issues. I’m on a backup right now though so I can get this post up.

Anyhow… the empties basket has been overflowing for awhile now and I can’t look at it anymore. Time to clean it out! I gotta break it all down into different posts though because there’s so much to go through!

So, pull up a chair and let’s go through some of my trash!

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2018: Recommendations & What I Plan To Buy

Hey guys! How’s it going?

Well, it’s that time of the year again…. the spring edition of Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty event! The event started this past Sunday, March 18, and goes through April 7.

If you’re not familiar with 21 Days of Beauty, during the event, each day, Ulta has certain products from two or three high end brands as a “Beauty Steal” at up to 50% off for that one day only. Most deals are available both in-store and online, however, there are some bonus Beauty Steals that are online only or if you’re a platinum level rewards member. And purchases are limited to 2 products per Beauty Steal item per customer. FYI, this event is held twice a year, in the spring and in the fall.

Now we’re a couple days into the sale now, but I wanted to share with you what I think are great deals and what I plan on purchasing myself during the event.

You ready? Let’s get going!
