Epic Moving Destash!

I’m moving to my new apartment on Tuesday (yay!) which means I’m desperately trying to destash a lot of my makeup, haircare, skincare, etc. Most of the items are brand new, and there’s a good mix of low-end to high-end. … Continue reading Epic Moving Destash!


Update – Recent Hauls

Haven’t been updating the blog recently, but I’ve been getting a ton of stuff in hauls! Going on a low-buy for awhile…Here’s a preview of some things I received. Let me know if you’re interested in a review of any … Continue reading Update – Recent Hauls


Zara Haul! Bags and Scarves.


A few weeks back, Zara had one of their end-of-season sales, so I picked up a few bags and scarves. I’m a big fan of Zara and think their items have a good balance of quality and price. I decided to just get some bags and scarves, so I wouldn’t have to deal with sizing issues (although Zara has the best returns policy!). Continue reading “Zara Haul! Bags and Scarves.”


Destash Sale!

I wanted to post more this week, but one reason I haven’t is because I’m DESTASHING! It takes way more time than expected to organize everything, etc. I’m selling a ton of my used, some new makeup here. Brands include … Continue reading Destash Sale!


Sample-Ready Saturday: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint Sunscreen



Saturday is almost over, but I still wanted to get a quick review in for Sample-Ready Saturday. I got this sample of the Jouer in November’s Birchbox in the shade Linen (which was a surprisingly good match for my NC20 skin), but I only had a chance to try it recently.

Current Makeup Collection


As I’m moving in two months, I plan on doing an epic destash of my collection. I thought it would be fun to do a “before” post, both as a reference for me, so I can feel accomplished by seeing everything I will downsize, and also to share (I always like looking at other people’s makeup collections). Most of my makeup is organized on my bathroom counter in these acrylic organizers from Amazon. I keep my skincare in a drawer underneath the counter and the closet right next to my bathroom. This is going to be a very picture-heavy post! Continue reading “Current Makeup Collection”


Sephora/Giorgio Armani Haul

I bought a ton of stuff from Sephora and a couple foundations from Giorgio Armani, because I had a 15% off coupon. Just wanted to do a quick run-through of first impressions! I got two of the Dior Diorskin Forever Compact … Continue reading Sephora/Giorgio Armani Haul
