Quick post today, I just wanted to share swatches of a Colourpop shadow set I had ordered recently. 20% and free shipping did me in. 

Travel The World: Vienna, New Year's Eve

Tuesday, December 26, 2017

2017 went by at warp speeds. I feel like I was dealt a pretty good hand this last year, the best I've felt in a long time both physically and mentally.  My 2017 started on a pretty high note, as my spouse and I made our way from Germany to Austria to ring in the new year. I really don't know what got into the two of us, what made me propose Vienna for NYE and for my husband to agree, but it turned out to be sensational. Today's post is just a collection of images from that trip.

Best in Budget Beauty 2017

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all good health, good food, and good company. 

This past year the median price of the average piece of makeup I purchased has undoubtedly risen, but I still came across some really great products that were under $15 (actually all but one item in this post is under $10!). Today's post rounds up some of my favorite beauty items that won't break the bank. 

2017 Skincare Empties

Friday, December 22, 2017

This year, I saved all my empties for one final post. I did a pretty good job of saving almost every scrap; every sheet mask backing sheet, all the boxes, and even empty foil sample packets. I used a surprisingly amount of things on my face, body and head. Laying it all out like this is certainly one way to survey your wallet damage for the year. 

Tom Ford Private Eyeshadow Camera Obscura

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

It's been a while, our household has been super busy with major repairs and renovations. New kitchen, new heating & cooling... it's been hectic. And expensive. I was going to abstain from the most recent Tom Ford release, I had successfully dodged the lipsticks. Then a sale code made its way to my inbox and I found myself immediately folding. I had wanted one of the two sparkly shades, either Tempete Bleu or Camera Obscura. TB sold out first on the Neiman Marcus website, so Camera Oscura it was!
