Products I Shouldn't Have Spent My Money On

Being a beauty blogger is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, I’m willing to shell out my own money to test out products and review them for others, hoping for those people to not spend money on a crappy product. On the other hand, I’m a small blogger and self-financed, meaning I spend my money on these products, and thus, end up with a collection of subpar makeup items and an emptier bank account.

The Hot List: May 2018

Alas! The spring semester is finally done, and my inspiration to write has returned. I figured the first subject I should write about are the products I’ve been using constantly as of late, so let’s do this!

Best Foundations for All Skin Types

Since I’ve only been wearing foundation for about two or three years now, I’m just starting to figure out what products work well for me versus formulas I dislike. I used to just buy anything a beauty influencer recommended on her channel; now I’m much more selective and think about overall shade range, formula, and finish.

How I Style: Early Springtime

I don’t think anyone is more excited about the rapidly coming spring than I am. The flowers blooming, the warm sun tanning my skin…I can see and feel it all, even though the temperature is still getting pretty low in the 30s at night.

Products I Regret Buying

Some products I purchase are practical ones that I truly believe I will love, but then when I try them out…they're a major fail. I decided to compile some of those products to do this post about products I regret purchasing.

All Used Up: January 2018 Empties + Reviews

It’s sometimes amazing that I even make it through products. I’m always buying and trying new things along with rediscovering old loves, so I switch out my makeup and skincare quite a bit. Somehow, I found a way to accumulate a few items for an empties blog post -far fewer items than my YouTube videos used to feature, but more than just two products (which wouldn’t necessarily be surprising for me). Here’s some of the items I finished up in the month of January, with mini-reviews and whether I would repurchase them.

How I Style: Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is upon us! I know for many, this day is just another day – especially since it falls on a Wednesday this year. This is actually one of the first years that I’ll have a real Valentine, so I’m feeling a little festive.

A "Haul" of a Good Time

I really did run out of my First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, which I think everyone knows by now is my holy grail skincare product. I’ve hardly been functioning without it this past week. This is the reason I took a gander on the Ulta website. One thing lead to another, and my cart had twelve items in it and I was adding a coupon and fragrance samples

The Hot List :January 2018 Favorites

I loved uploading and watching monthly favorites videos on my YouTube channel. They’re always interesting to watch, as I can glean a lot of makeup, skincare, fitness, and clothing items and brands to try. For some odd reason, when I decided to switch to my website from YouTube as my main platform, I felt as though I couldn’t do monthly favorites anymore. But why not? Instead of just rambling about my favorite products, I can now outline the high points of why I enjoy them without getting too off track. So without further ado, here are my favorites of January 2018.
