Spring is the time of year when I actually go outside. This might sound strange to you but I’m actually being serious. Winter is cold. Summer is hot. Spring is that sweet season in between where I actually like to go out & enjoy the sunshine. During spring I really like to reach for products that look naturally beautiful but also some multi-tasking. Check out my look & ideas using Glo Minerals here!

What are you up to this year for New Year’s Eve? Normally we celebrate in a pretty laid back way- but of course I like my makeup to look FIERCE!
When I think of NYE, I always want to bring out my best features. You’re probably thinking, “Stephanie, shouldn’t that be all the time?” & okay you might have a point. What I mean is that NYE tends to be the closest I get to “clubbing” since we’re such lame 20-somethings. I love the lighting & the glitz- much of which tends to reflect highlighter like the best spotlight ever. Using some items from the Mirabella Beauty Faerie Holiday Collection, I’m going to demo how to really get your glow on & especially make blue eyes pop- because that’s what I love to do.
Orange is the New Black is one of my favorite shows currently…so we quickly flew through the 2nd season. I’ll make sure not to reveal any major spoilers but this season was intense (which was expected) but also full of awesome twists. One of my favorite characters on the series (which is on Netflix for those who haven’t indulged yet!) is Nicky aka Nichols who is just a seriously awesome character. She’s rough one minute & understanding the next but always speaks her mind. In collaboration a few other vloggers & bloggers (linked below!) we sought to cover some of our favorite characters- keep reading to check out my look! [Read more…]
Laura from My Newest Addiction have been blogging friends a really long time so it only makes sense we decided to do our first video collab together! We wanted to both use the It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette because she is so stunning & versatile. When we came up with the Alter Ego Palette idea we thought it would make a great tag too!
How does it work? Pick one of your favorite palettes & zero in on shades you use the least then create a look!
