Hi, everyone! We are continuing our new “vegan and cruelty-Free” makeup series with a contour and blush routine. I absolutely love contouring and blush so much.

5 Best Mug Cake Recipes Ever

We are going to talk about the best 5 mug recipes ever to grace mankind. Unlike last week where we discovered the beauty of no-bake recipes, this week we get to play with some heat.

We are all about extremely easy and quick recipes when it comes to anything dealing with food, especially by Friday afternoon. We just want some cake in our bellies and we want […]

Spring Glow ft Physicians Formula Highlighter Trio!

I’ve got a Spring glow video up with a makeup tutorial demo/review of the new Physicians Formula highlight trio that I mentioned in last week’s “Green Beauty Haul”.

Spring Renewal

Spring renewal is also known as the second Happy New Year. I know January is long gone but in my world, spring is the time for renew, refresh, and new resolutions. All those resolutions from the first of the year have begun to weaken by now. Or, in most cases, crashed and burned with the dawn of February! I’m looking at myself right now. I’m not pointing fingers, but if you are in the same group as me, then this is our “do over”, a second chance, and this time, we literally have more time thanks to the longer days […]

Anyway, one season at a time. I’m here to show you my favorite spring-time look. As always, I gravitate towards letting my natural skin shine through and just complimenting my face with a […]

7 Secrets of Tidy People

If you’re interested in minimizing stuff in your life, you will probably want to know the secrets of tidy people as well. You’ve probably heard about the magical little book called “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Condo.

Minimalism: How to Clean Your Closet

Minimalism is liberating, freeing, and it seems like everyone is on a quest to live as simply as possible in one area of their lives these days. Collecting things we desire and love can bring a lot of happiness. When we get to pass these things down to our grandkids, they become heirlooms. But, sooner or later, we have to admit when we are just hoarding things. If you have kids, you’re probably hoarding toys whether you like it or not. If you don’t have kids, what’s your vice that you know you have to stop? With the housing market […]
