I think I must be getting old because in my youngin days I didn’t care a lick about sales.
Sales Shmales. I thought.
Now I get almost giddy with the idea of getting something for %30 off, SUCH A GOOD DEAL!

I think it can be a little addicting and I try to not even look at sites like Gilt & Hautelook because I don’t have the self control to withstand %80 OFF…even if it’s 80% off of something I definitely DO NOT need. (although I do still follow along on istagram justincase they are sale-ifying something I’ve been dying to get)

Anyway what I’m getting at is that Sephora is having a sale today and Sephora sales are not a dime a dozen, they’re a pretty rare situation. One we should not ignore.Here are my favorites. The sale has limited supplies so…keep that in mind:)

Winner’s Round Up!

A few weeks ago I had teamed up with Sally Beauty for a giveaway of a $45 Gift Card and a beauty consult on skype helping the winner know how to spend it:)
The Winner was Chelsey Patti and she was an absolute pleasure to chat with, and SO BEAUTIFUL!


She also has a blog called Patti Cake, isn that the best name? I’m all about doing a play on words using your own name, so we were totally on the same page.
She talks about fashion and beauty and life, so definitely check it out:)
Here’s a round up of what we discussed and what I thought she might love:


1. Eye Shadow Quad: So Chelsey lives in Nashville where she has no shortage of HUMIDITY. One of her concerns is that her eye liner bleeds and droops by the end of the day. I told her we can combat that in two ways. One: By setting your liner with a dark/black eyeshadow (using a liner brush or angled brush) which goes a long way to keeping it put…

2. Palladio Liquid Liner: The other option is by using a liquid liner. They are reliable at staying in place as long as you have time to use the steady hand that liquid liners require!

3. De-frizz Wand: She also has beautiful curly hair, which I know can be troublesome on hot humid days. This little magic wand is an AWESOME option for taming baby hairs and fly aways. I love it’s size too, just pop it in your purse in case you have a hair go haywire!

4. Roux Color Refresh Mask: I love her gorgeous vibrant hair color! I just tried this color refresh mask last week and I love it! It’s like a deep conditioner and a hair glaze all in one. Pick the color closets to your own and throw it on in the shower , leave it for 5 minutes and rinse it out. It gives new life and moisture to your hair.

5. OPI Berlin There Done That: I can tell from her blog that Chelsey is a big fan of awesome nail colors! So I picked one of my favorite fall colors!

Hope you have a fantastic Labor Day Weekend!


Wen you’re in love, you show it.

It seems like every single time I talk about Wen I get a bundle of questions about it.
So I’ve been meaning to do a video for a while now explaining all the answers in one place!
I asked the good folks over at Wen if they’d want to team up and do a giveaway to go along with it and they were all about it.
To enter all you have to do is comment your “Dream” Wen scent or your favorite seasonal sent.
The winner will get a Wen Starter kit!

Good luck!!!

and have a fantastic day!


Mama Makeover

My very favorite person to do a makeover on is my mom. She is  so incredibly beautiful and I just plain love her face.
And I love to see her feel her prettiest.
