Can you believe that there are only two days left in 2016? This has been an amazing year for me! I hope it has been a good one for you as well!! Normally, I spend New Years Eve with my family having a few drinks and bringing the new year! I am opting for simple soft glam this year, using my Kyshadow Bronze Palette and my Maybelline blushed nudes palette.
As 2017 approaches, now is the perfect time of year to reflect. For some, this may include many accomplishments,and for others, this may include hardships. Whatever 2016 has brought into your life, now is the time to figure out what you can do to improve your upcoming year.
For myself, in 2017 I want to work on me! Normally, this would include working out, eating right, and overall improving my health. I do think that these things are important, but we also need to remember to take care of our mental health as well!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!
I hope you are enjoying spending time with family, eating great food, and truly remembering what the holiday season is about.

This year I have the pleasure of celebrating Christmas twice! Recently before flying to the U.S., I celebrated Christmas in the U.K.! One of the gifts I received was the Benefit Rock-Itude Kit(retails for £25)! This is the Lip & Cheek Kit.
benetint rose tinted lip & cheek stain | 4ml
high beam luminescent complexion enhancer | 4ml
rockateur famously provocative cheek powder | 3g
rockateur ultra plush shimmering rose gold lip gloss | 6.5ml
Now time for my honest opinions….
It’s that time of year, when everything gets super hectic in our lives. Everything from spending time with family, to shopping for gifts, to cooking feast, and preparing for family visits. How do you stay calm and keep your peace? It’s very simple to get lost in the sauce during this time of year. I want to share a few self care tips to pamper your self and keep you sane during the holiday season.
The best way to keep yourself from being stressed during the holiday season is planning. It’s key to plan ahead when you will shop, what you will be cooking, and tidying up for family visit. I’ve been that person who’s waited until the last moment to do all of these things. Don’t be the person who gets caught up and has to do everything the night before your in-laws arrive.
In honor of Christmas in 10 days, I’ve decided to post a Christmas glam look. I don’t know about you, but red lips scream Christmas season to me. I used colourpops “that girl” super shock shadow for the first time and the pigment payoff was EVERYTHING!!!
Do you believe the hype? Earlier this week while doing my weekly shopping I noticed mini size benefit products at the checkout in boots. Normally, I try not to give in to small unplanned purchases…. but for £9.95 I had to give the They’re Real Mascara a try. The full size retails for £19.50 so I figured this was my perfect chance to try the product before committing to the full size product.
I’ve decided that each Sunday post will be about love. Whether that be self love or the love we have others. I will be discussing a related topic each Sunday.
Today’s topic: Long Distance Relationships
As my partner James and I approach our 4 year anniversary, I reminisce on how hard we both worked to make a 5,000 mile, 5 hour time difference relationship work. He’s from a small town in England and I am from a small city in Florida. If you’re wondering how we crossed paths, I blame a unplanned girls night out gone totally right! (Lol) James was in Miami on vacation and I was just out partying. Who knew that night our paths would meet. After multiple trips, numerous phone calls, and genuine love we are now approaching our next step in our relationship…. Living together permanently! I figured since our long distance relationship has been such a success I would like share my tips with others in similar situations.
Yesterday, I was thinking about what kind of look should I do for my giveaway video? I knew I wanted a glittery eye and opted for black sparkles. Colourpop has amazing glittery eye shadows and they are super affordable! If you would like a tutorial let me know below in the comments! Check below for details:
