Ipsy Glam Bag June 2016 - Reveal

Happy Hump Day! Hope y'all had a great weekend! I had quiet time to myself when Shaun worked on Saturday and the of course on Sunday we spent the day with my Dad. For our date night Saturday I decided to put my latest Ipsy products to work. But first, here's a look at what's inside: 


Urban Decay Eyeshadow - full size retails for $19 so I'd value this same at $5ish. This is a very nice pink that can be applied lightly or layered for a bold look. 

Seraphine Botanicals Blush - $18 like I said in my video I LOVE the packaging. I found the shade to be light and natural on my skin but it has more of a shimmer than a typical blush. I think it's nice to use during the summer on top of di kissed cheeks but realistically I see myself using it as more of a highlighter than blush. 

Vasanti Eyeliner - $19 I LOVE how this doesn't smear or melt off and it doesn't go on thick. 

Crease and Smudge Brush - $9 it's a nice brush but a bit to big for a crease brush IMO, I used to apply the urban decay eyeshadow all over my eye. 

BioRebublic Fiber Mask - $5 each. I haven't tried these yet, maybe thus weekend. I'm not a huge fan of fiber masks (as in I don't buy them) but I don't mind getting them in bags either. 

So, how did it turn out? 



I think this was a nice light look for a casual night out. I think the eyeliner is the real winner and something I could add to my usual makeup look. In the future I will blend the eyeshadow with other colors I already own and I see myself using the blush when I want a lighter look.

Overall another great value bag with some solid products. I'm a little disappointed I got similar products to the previous bag so I changed my surgery results to say I'm up for anything. Looking forward to seeing what I get in July!

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.

Spring Styles to Wear Now

Is it just me or is 2019 passing along quickly? Welcome to March which is said to come in like a lion and out like a lamb. Sometimes fashion seasons and the weather don't match up but the fashion show must go on! While I'm waiting for the weather to catch up I'm wearing some new spring items with some added warmth now and I'll wear them without the layers later. Here's just a few examples of how you can take spring items and start wearing them now. One of my favorite items to wear is a loose tunic - they are comfortable, cute and flattering. While I love a tunic with skinny jeans right now it needs a little extra layer for warmth so I'm topping this tunic I picked up at the Southern Women's Show with my utility jacket. When the weather warms up I'll either wear with the jeans alone, white pants or even a khaki skirt. Wear It Now Wear It Later

I came across this pink dress I just had to have it - it's so fun and super flattering. To wear …

Body Confidence

I have people tell me a lot that "I'm so confident" with such a tone of surprise and while really I think it's just that I'm a plus size women who happens to be loud and doesn't try to hide from the world but sometimes if I'm in a sensitive mood I'll take that as umm, don't you own a mirror, you should maybe be quiet and go to the gym. I'd say about 90% of the time I can say although I don't have my ideal body I don't hate myself and I don't let it keep me from living my life but then there's that 10% of the time . . .

Last week I had such a moment, You may have noticed that my pics I post on social media are either of me standing or are chest up if I'm sitting - now this is partially because I typically only take pics seated if I'm showing off a product so I was a more close up anyway but also here's something this people never have to think about - when you're plus size and you sit down if consolidates all t…

Lauren James Warehouse Sale Haul

Hello Friends! I know many of y'all kept up with my Lauren James warehouse sale journey over the weekend and if you're anything like me you like following along even if you couldn't make it yourself. When Lauren James announced the warehouse sale I was super excited but not sure I could make it work - it was short notice, a five hour drive and I'd already spent my June spending money. Luckily I have a good hubby who recognizes that sometimes you just need something fun in your life and was ok not only making the trip but with me borrowing from ourselves against my July spending money. Since this is the last warehouse sale Lauren James plans on holding I really didn't want the opportunity to slip by.
Warehouse sales can serve many purposes for a business - as a way to move excess inventory, create buzz and excitement for the brand, reward the most loyal brand fans by giving them access to great deal (which also puts more product into the hands of those most excite…

Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same. Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.


Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three ti…
