Blog Collaboration | Late Night, Date Night - Twisted Bun Hair Tutorial

Hello, beauties! Today, I'm coming to you with another fun little collaboration. This time, the theme is date night. Several other bloggers and myself have cooked up a full head-to-toe look that will take you from doorbell to good night kiss, and have you feeling flirty and fab! I'm bringing you the hair portion of the look. I think I've got a little something that will help you feel elegant and ready to enjoy a night on the town with a person who makes you go ga-ga!

Before we get started, here are a few things you need:

(1) Brush
(1) Hair Tie
(6-8) Bobby Pins
(1) Statement Hair Clip (Optional)
and any products you may use to help tame fly aways and wispies!


STEP ONE: Brush your hair into a sleek ponytail centered on the back of your head, and secure. Easy peasy!

LUSH Cosmetics Sea Spray Hair Mist - Review

LUSH Cosmetics Sea Spray Hair Mist, $12.95
I must confess, I'm not a huge fan of the beach. However, there is one thing about going to the ocean that I absolutely adore. I love having sea salt in my hair, wind whipping through it, giving it the most glorious smell and texture. There is absolutely nothing like it! Sure, my hair might be a nuisance to untangle later, but it just looks so sensual and feels like the very definition of sunshine, vacation, and relaxation. So, of course, I've been looking for the perfect salt spray so I can bring a little bit of that coastal escape home. Unfortunately, today's offering just wasn't the paradise I was hoping for.

Blog Collaboration | Seven for the Rainbow

Hello, beauties! I hope you all have had a fantastic week so far. Today, I'm coming to you with something really special! For a few weeks now, I've been discussing doing a blog collaboration with the sweet Daphne from So we decided to team up and host one with five other fabulous beauty bloggers.

The premise is that each of us pick a color of the rainbow, swapping out indigo for pink, and we then pick five of our favorite products from our color to share with our readers. Well, lovelies, that time is now! I picked pink, an old favorite of mine, and I've got some lush products that I think you'll all just drool over. I know I do! So, let's get started, shall we?

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush | Pink Frosting - Review + Swatch

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush | Pink Frosting, $8.29
I have to say, I've never been one for cream blushes. With a face that is highly prone to breakouts, I've found cream products harder to work with over the high coverage products that I tend to use.  However, every time I've popped into my local Target or the drugstore down the street, Maybelline's Dream collection stops me in my tracks.

Eventually, I just couldn't take having to eye this beauty for another day, so I took the plunge and snapped one up. I remember standing in front of the display with a handful of them begging my husband to help me pick out the right one. Which, of course, was a bit silly as he truly knows nothing about makeup or colors. In the end, I decided I wanted to go for this gorgeous, girly pink (surprise, surprise), and I'm so glad I did!

Coral Blushes, Summer Blushes

Hello, lovelies! I'm Daphne from, and the lovely Megan here has asked me to do a guest post for her. If you've been following her for a while, you'll know Megan has a huge thing for pinks. Me on the other hand, I have a love affair with corals. So reflecting back to the Best Summer Pink Blushes guest post she did for me a while back, I decided to introduce my favorite coral blushes on her blog!

Hello, beauties! Before we get started, I wanted to give you a heads up on an exciting guest post coming up for you on Monday from the fabulous Daphne over at Subgenre of a Dream. I've read through it and it is amazing! If you are a coral lover, you're going to want to pop back over here Monday morning to have a look. Today, however, I'm bringing you a review on a product that I haven't been able to get enough of lately. Ever since that LUSH haul from last week, I've been up to my eyeballs in products from LUSH Cosmetics and this one has been such a joy to use.

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder - Review

NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder, $2.99
I don't know about you guys, but I'm always on the search for a great face powder. I want good coverage, all day wear, and no clumping, flaking or drying. Finding that seems to be harder than finding a good red lipstick! However, I think I've finally found a great contender, and the best part is it fits even the tiniest of budgets!

LUSH Cosmetics Haul


Outside of last week's mini scented candle haul, I haven't had a proper haul here on the blog. Well, I thought it was time to rectify that! I've recently bought some goodies from LUSH and I just couldn't wait any longer to show you loves what I purchased.

I've only been a LUSH fan for a short while now, and I could kick myself for not popping in sooner! Now every time I go in I have to keep myself from buying out the whole store as I just can't decide on what I want. I want it all! For now, I'll have to be content with the fab products I recently picked up.  Ready to see what I bought? Let's go, babes!
