by Sandie March 6, 2014 Beauty

I don’t have a TON of make-up, but what I do have tends to be from department stores and beauty specialty shops like Blue Mercury, Ulta, or Sephora. My mother (may she rest in peace) was a make-up hoarder, and as beautiful as she was, having that much make-up never appalled to me. I tend […]

4 Beauty Picks for 2014

by Victoria Mason January 8, 2014 Beauty

  Out with the old. In with the new.  That’s my motto for skincare and make-up at the start of every new year.  If I haven’t used it or it was too trendy, I toss it.  Has it aged beyond use or just doesn’t work or suit my needs? It meets its end in my bathroom […]

(sponsored) Imagine a Future Documentary Helps Build Self Esteem

by Sandie October 8, 2013 Beauty

Disclosure: I received compensation for covering the Imagine a Future screening and director Q&A at Blogalicious Five, but all opinions are my own.
