Best of Beauty 2015

Hi friends! Look who’s finally written their 2015 best of beauty post! It only took a bajillion years…

Asking me to pick my favorite makeup products is like asking me to pick a favorite child—it just can’t be done. I love all of them for different reasons. (Er…most of them, anyway.) That’s why, initially, I wasn’t going to write a 2015 favorites post. January is almost over, everyone else has done it, and I worried no one would want to read it. But then, one of my friends asked me to write it, and here I am. I’ve caved. Not all of these were 2015 discoveries, but I definitely used the heck out of all of them last year! I decided to save my skincare favorites for a future post—I’m long overdo for an updated skincare routine anyhow!

Without further ado, here’s my 2015 All Star Lineup!

Belated Birthday Date | FOTD

Last night, Dave and I went out to dinner and to see the new Cinderella movie as a sort of belated birthday celebration. My real birthday was last week, but I spent it at my grandfather’s funeral and I didn’t much feel like celebrating. Deciding it was time to stop moping around my apartment, I used the date as an excuse to get dolled up.

The two of us headed to Pacci’s, a local pizza restaurant that I love. They cook their pizzas in a wood-burning oven, and there’s something about the crust that’s extra delicious. I ordered a pizza topped with buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, basil and parmesan. We decided to skip dessert, but I was certainly tempted since the restaurant has a wall of Nutella at the entrance.

Haul: Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

This is a tale about what happens when you lack self control… I’ve been trying really hard not to splurge on makeup the last few months. I have so many products that I really don’t need any new ones. But what fun is that? Any progress I’d made in sticking to a budget went completely down the drain during Sephora’s VIB Rouge Sale last week.

I went to Sephora not once, but twice during the sale. (Whoops!) I thought I’d sit down and take the chance to share my purchases with you. In an effort to keep this short, I’ll keep the product descriptions brief, but please feel free to let me know if you’d like me to do a review of any of these items in the comments below!

October Favorites

October Favorites

It has been an abysmal month for posting to this blog. My apologies that this is going up so late! As I mentioned in my previous post, October was an incredibly busy month. That meant I kept my beauty routine to a minimum– which is rare for me! I found myself going back to old favorites instead of trying out new products. Which in a way, helped me to rediscover why I loved them so much in the first place!

High End vs. Drugstore (Part Two)

A higher price tag doesn’t always mean higher quality. In this mini series, I’m comparing some of my favorite high end products with their drugstore equivalents. Today, we’re on to the fun stuff: eyes and lips!

(And in case you missed it, be sure to check out part 1, where I reviewed some of my most-loved face products.)
