Outrageous Lashes

Another day, another new mascara. They pop up constantly and, of course, I have to try them all. My latest experiment was with the new Sephora Collection Outrageous Mascara. This is a volumizing mascara that is supposed to give you pumped-up, glamorous lashes. What sets it apart from other mascaras is the triple loaded brush. [...]

The Original Cheek And Lip Stain

I'll never forget receiving my first catalog from Benefit. It's close to almost twenty years now (where does the time go?). Back then, you couldn't find the brand anywhere in Minneapolis, but luckily that didn't last long. Good thing too!

Two Times A Charm

Most of us ladies use a blush and bronzer every day, especially in the summer months. I know I'm feeling a bit pale these days and the right blush/bronzer combination can make all the difference.

What’s In My Bag

It's a snowy day here and it looks like I'll be stuck inside. I decided to clean out my bags and thought I'd give you a peek into one of them. I always love seeing what's inside someone's purse. It's kind of like looking into a medicine cabinet. You know you shouldn't look, but it's [...]
