New Formula! Almay Intense I-Color Evening Smoky for Green Eyes (and swatches) Review

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s dive right into today’s post. Today, I’m talking about Almay eyeshadows. I now what you’re thinking- I’ve already reviewed these. And when I saw the new packaging in the store, I thought the same thing. But, I saw a pamphlet in Rite Aid (it had coupons, by the way!) that claimed that the shadows were a new formula. I was very excited about that, as Almay is one of my favorite brands for a lot of things… except eyeshadow.

August 2015 Birchbox (Plus Photos)

Hi everyone, it’s finally Friday, and I’m so excited. This week has been a pain – this seems to be a theme, huh? Ugh. New jobs are hard. Anyway, today I’m talking about what I got in the AWESOME Birchbox. I’m seriously more excited for this box than any of the recent boxes that I can remember.

You’re going to have to forgive the lighting; it isn’t so great. I’m still working on figuring out where the best lighting in the new place is, especially it isn’t staying light so late any more.

Ikea Sinnlig Candle in Berry

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope you are all having a less crazy week than me. Today, we are talking about the Ikea Sinnlig candle in Berry. If you remember last week, I reviewed the Green Apple scent, and I wasn’t impressed. The comments let me know that I may have just purchased a dud, so I decided to give the Berry scent a try.

Almay Smart Shade Lip Butter (Light/Medium Pink) Review

Hello everyone. Time for another week! I need a vacation. Today we are keeping this happy and light with a very pretty product: the Almay smart shade lip butter. I picked this up a while ago, but I have a ton of lip products, and I don’t actually wear lip products every day (yeah I know, what am I doing with my life??). Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I’m finally ready to give this product a review.

Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection Mascara Review

Hi everyone. It is finally the weekend! Well, almost. We just have to survive today. This week has been a tiring one but not because it has been particularly busy. I am coming off of a huge work project that more or less overtook my life and the new project that I was assigned is a lot more mellow (knock on wood… I hope I didn’t jinx anything).

Anyway, today we are talking about a new mascara to me: Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection. I recently did a post about how much I love the original sexy booster mascara. I loved the volume and the scent and the staying power. It was fantastic. So, let’s see how this one compares!

Ikea Sinnlig Candle in Green Apple Review

Happy Wednesday. Ugh. I can’t wait for this week to be over… and we aren’t quite halfway there yet. In some aspects, this week has been going fast. But mostly slow… work is not nearly as crazy as it was last week, which is good and bad. It makes the days go slower but I’m definitely less stressed.

Anyway, today we are talking about the Sinnlig candle from Ikea in Green Apple. When I smelled this in the store, I absolutely fell in love with the scent. And, I’ve been burning it lately. So, does it live up to the hype?
