Summer Essentials

Happy Friday nerds and nerdettes! It’s almost Memorial Day Weekend here in the states, which means the first official weekend of going to the pool or beach. The fiancé and I will be doing neither unfortunately because the weather has been so crappy lately, and to be honest it isn’t even that hot here (shockingly!). So instead we’ll be spending time with my family at my sister’s for a cookout.

I’m so excited! Memorial Day weekend is usually the kickoff of our summer adventures; fishing trips, drive-in movies, cookouts, and tons of swimming.

In the meantime, I picked up a couple of Summer essentials, one of which is a product I will be trying for the first time. Continue reading

Happy Happy Friday nerd and nerdettes! Mother’s Day weekend has fastly approaches and I am rushing to get my shopping done for Mother’s Day brunch with my mom and lovely sister.

Sonia Kashuk Art Of Makeup 10 Piece Brush Set Review + Photos

Before I get to my review I have a confession…

I am a makeup brush hoarder!

I probably have more brushes in my collection than I’d care to admit, but trust me, it’s a lot. I have always loved the quality of a particular brand of makeup brushes; Sonia Kashuk. Not only does this brand rival high end makeup brushes, but they also release many brush sets that are a fraction of the cost of one high end makeup brush! If you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on any of these limited edition sets from Sonia Kashuk, you know what I’m talking about!

I recently tore apart a few Target stores in my area in search of the newest limited edition set by Sonia Kashuk, the “Art Of Makeup” set. Continue reading

Friday Night Makeup Look

One of the fun parts of date nights with my fiancé is the fun of getting ready.

I believe it’s necessary for anyone to set a few minutes aside a day for themselves. For me, it’s doing my makeup, or giving myself a manicure.

This is the soft neutral look I did for my date tonight with my beau.
