More than Makeup: #TheSelfLoveSelfie

Hello my beautiful internet friends, I'm (finally) back! Once again, thanks for your patience with the lack of blog posts recently.

Tutorial: Megan’s 21st Springtime Birthday Makeup

Hello, Internet! It's been awhile since I've done a proper tutorial, and I've got to say that the troubleshooting that went into planning and executing this post was more than enough well...trouble.

Review: Bite Beauty The Amuse Bouche VoxBox

"Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world." This quote is supposedly from the queen Coco Chanel herself, but I feel that the internet mixed it up with a popular Marilyn Monroe quote about shoes.

In honor of Galentine's Day, I'm publishing this post a day early... enjoy you Poetic Noble Land Mermaids! Today is February 14th.

Empties: Fall 2015

Hello, hello! I hope all of you American folks had a wonderful Turkey weekend. Thanksgiving usually marks the time of year where things begin to blur into a chaos of finals and several holiday celebrations, one after another. Things just seem to just fly-by every year around this time of year as the season draws …

Tutorial: Thanksgiving 2015

It's that time of year where we in America give thanks. Some iffy history aside, there's much to be thankful for. Personally, I would like to give thanks to everyone who left such supportive comments on my last blog post about my one year blog-aversary! Again, all of this would not be possible without you …

Product Review: Solvaderm Juvabrite Skin Brightening Complex

The Juvabrite Skin Brightening Complex by Solvaderm is a lightweight serum that is targeted for skin lightening and treating discoloration and uneven pigmentation in the skin. What really drew me to this product is that it could be used for both fading blemishes and dark spots "caused by sun exposure, acne, pregnancy or oral contraceptives" since I suffer …
