We started our day in Venice pretty early and headed to San Marco Square to see numerous sights in one place. Instead of walking to the complete other side of Venice, our hotel had a boat “shuttle” that had a stop at the square. It was perfect. We didn’t have to navigate and get lost trying to find the square…

Back to travel posts! I am trying to catch up but the wifi here is pretty rough so hang in there. Venice Day 1. We flew into Venice from Barcelona at an ungodly hour of the morning. My Uncle Charlie said that the only way to arrive in Venice is by boat so that is exactly what we did. We…

Let’s take a little break from travel posts…. (but don’t worry too much, they will be back). Glossier came out with a powder. THE powder.

Something that has always been sought after or desired are full long luscious lashes. Me included. Now we have lash extensions that you can customize to any length, thickness, style, that you want. But they aren’t for everyone. And unfortunately that includes me. 1. It is expensive as hell. A fresh set of lashes start at $100 and can go…

This summer has 100% been the summer of testing new products. My skin however, maybe isn’t loving it as much as I am. But beauty is pain? No pain no gain? So today I am sharing with you my thoughts on Tula products. And I have given these products a good amount of time to show off, work and potentially…

Have you ever had one of those things that you’ve wanted but never go out and actually buy yourself? Yeah, me too. For me it was a silk pillowcase. I had heard it had beauty benefits for your skin and hair but never actually went out and purchased one for myself. That’s were my mom comes in. My hairdresser, Rhonda…
