favorite fall lipsticks


I just love the colors of Fall from the changing leaves to the deeper shades in makeup, which had me thinking about my favorite fall lipsticks. I collaborated on another video on my YouTube channel with a group from the “Ladies Who Collab”. Anyone who is a beauty YouTube creator is welcome to join this group which you can visit on their Facebook group.

Summer Essentials

Summer Essential Products Collab with Zelma

Summer Essential Products

Why Summer Essential Products?

The Summer essential products video idea was from My friend, Zelma (from a Facebook group that we belong). When I saw Zelma post her idea on the Ladies Who Collab Facebook page, I asked to be a part of it and she was nice enough to agree. This was our first time partnering together and she is a lot of fun. I loved watching her video to see what were her Summer essential products.

Makeup Swap with Makeup Momma

First Makeup Swap with Makeup Momma

Makeup Swap with Makeup Momma

How this makeup swap happened.

This was a project to do especially with a friend.  Whenever I watch YouTube and see a makeup swap video, I always watch it. I love seeing what others buy for one another.  Stephanie or better know as Makeup Momma and I have been friends for almost two years and does quite a few swaps on her YouTube channel. When she asked me if I wanted to do one with her; I jumped at the chance. This was my first one.

Shopping talk, Walmart, Slotting fees

Shopping: Walmart begins charging slotting fees.


What does this mean for customers and brands?

Shopping talk, Walmart, Slotting fees

I ran across some articles in my newsfeed about Walmart beginning to charge slotting fees.  This is a drastic change to how Walmart has operated their business in the past.  The goal for the retail giant which operates over 11, 000 stores in 28 countries has always been to provide the lowest price on every product.

Allure Beauty Subscription Box – October 2015

Allure, beauty box, beauty subscription, subscription box

I have really been enjoying my Allure Beauty Box (formerly Allure Sample Society) especially since Allure took over the service two months ago.  The last two boxes I have received 6 products rather than 5 as I had with Sample Society.  As always, it comes with the Allure mini magazine which gives detailed information about each product.  This is the most descriptive explanation of any subscription I receive.

October’s box came with a nice variety of products that included body care, skin care, hair care, and color cosmetics. I haven’t tried all the products yet but the one that I will share my thoughts.

IPSY Beauty Subscription “Prep School” August 2015

IPSY Subscription

Imagine my surprise when another IPSY bag showed up in my mailbox. Rewind to last month when I cancelled IPSY as soon as it arrived. I didn’t end up doing a review of July’s bag and although the products I received weren’t horrible, they were not ones that I would personally use. That has been the main issue with IPSY is that most months I do not receive products that I use. I have tried retaking the quiz numerous times and still it is the same.
