Ace Beaute Classical Paradise Palette

Monday, February 18, 2019



New to me in 2019 is the brand Ace Beauté. This palette, the Classical Paradise has been on my mind ever since I first set eyes on it, maybe three months back. The shade Golden Apple caught my eye, I'd been looking for a murky khaki brown, the perfect pea soup color. Plus, I will never say no to some saturated burgundies. During a recent sale, I picked up the palette.

Esqido Gel Eyeliner Review

Thursday, January 24, 2019



Good afternoon!

Over the last three months I've been testing out this Esqido Gel Eyeliner, sent to me by the company to review.

I've lost so many liners over the years to the thief that is dry air, I can't even tell you how many I've tossed. 

Travel the World: Hanoi, Viet Nam

Friday, January 18, 2019

My mother and I took my 88 year old grandma to Viet Nam for week, it had been the first time she'd been on vacation in a while. We were hoping to do relaxing trips out of Hanoi, to take a cruise through Halong Bay. In hindsight, I'm not sure if Hanoi was the right place to bring her, while I enjoyed it, it seemed hectic due to some unfortunate planning on my part.
