Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Good afternoon!

NYC-based Cirque Colors recently released a set of nail color basics called the Back to Basics Set. This contains your quintessential base coat and top coat, as well as a white creme and black creme. I've been testing them out and I'm quite happy to say they get a thumbs up from me. 

Retro FOTD featuring Firmoo Glasses

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Good afternoon!

Today I've created a look to go hand in hand with my new Firmoo glasses. I've been a devout contacts wearer for close to two decades but you can bet that I always have a pair of trusty glasses nearby, just in case. I was able to pick out this fantastic pair of large rimmed retro-looking glasses and decided that it deserved red lipstick to go along with it.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Silk Eyeshadow #24

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Good morning!

I'm still experiencing difficulties with my ISP but I promise that I'm trying to blog whenever I can! You know, blogging has been a part of my life for so long (we're coming up on FIVE YEARS this fall) that it is making me pretty antsy to not post at least a few times a week. 

Anyways, last month I snagged something awesome from a blogsale. I had been wanting to try out the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Silk Eyeshadow range ever since I finally got on the L'Oreal Infallible bandwagon last year. GA ETKs were supposed to be the older, more complex relations of the L'Oreal Infallible range. For months I mulled over which shade I would pick to try first... and believe it or not, my inability to decide kept me from pulling the trigger. When I saw #24 on a blogsale, it was just the impetus I needed.

Glossybox - August 3rd Birthday Edition

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Good afternoon!

I was recently given the opportunity to review Glossybox, one of the more well known beauty subscription boxes and I eagerly accepted because I had heard generally good things about the service. My first Glossybox happens to be a special box, in celebration of their 3rd birthday, Glossybox included a special Kryolan for Glossybox highlighter in all boxes and the theme was #eyesnightout. Let's see what other things I received!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Italian Summer Collection

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Good morning!

We moved into our house last week but unfortunately our ISP won't be able to connect us for a while. So today I'm blogging from my neighborhood Starbucks. It's time for a new Rescue Beauty Lounge collection - Italian Summer, inspired by Ji's travels abroad. Without further ado, here's Ji thoughts on the collection.
