Vacation, All I Ever Wanted?

I skipped out on my blog and social media spaces, and before I knew it, it was May! Time totally got away from me but look who's back from their well over a month-long break from the internet! It's me...
Had I planned better (or planned anything at all) there would have been a scheduled post here and there, but I guess my mind decided it was time for a break and immediately switched to vacation mode. My mom and step dad also visited from Maryland and, as should be expected, she and I gravitated to our natural habitat:


ULTA, swiftly followed by Sephora.

I love seeing and reading about what other people are buying even though I'm not one for posting hauls myself. But it's literally all I can talk about right now! I've been a model US consumer thanks to my hoarding of any and all gift cards I'm lucky enough to receive from my loved ones. The same gift cards I obsess over while trying to find that perfect something worthy of their use.

Sephora's Chic Week sale got the best of me (who could resist 15% off?). Beyond that, I finally cashed in a three-year-old Caron's gift card at a LancĂ´me counter during a loaded free gift with purchase promotion. Plus, I had some credit on HauteLook and MAC released two new collections that made my eyes turn into actual hearts. I couldn't even fit any more makeup in/on/around my vanity (entire apartment) if I wanted to! Because of all that there will probably be some upcoming mini reviews.

Things will be back to normal shortly. I just didn't want to pretend I wasn't gone for forever. If you're reading this, thanks for sticking around!

    1. Awesome, I'm so glad you enjoy them! Took a little bit to work up the momentum, but there's finally a new review up and hopefully there will be a new Get the Look coming soon. :)

  5. Just found your blog while looking for swatches of the MAC Alluring Aquatic collection and I'm in love! Plants, makeup, DIY...so much goodness! I especially love your makeup photos as they are wonderfully simple, sharp and very well-lit which really allows me to see exactly what the products look like without any distractions. And I love your makeup looks...I really hope you will consider making video tutorials for those of us who are visual learners!

    Anyway, just wanted to share my appreciation of your blog with you. Also, you and your mom are beyond gorgeous...great genes, ha ha! You're fortunate that she shares your love of makeup; I wish mine did so we could go on sprees at the mothership, ahem, Sephora! :-)

    P.S. What colour lipstick are both of you wearing in the Sephora pic? They both look fabulous, especially that orange-y red.

    1. Also, please do a tutorial on how you fill in/shape your brows as they are perfect and I am brow-challenged!

    2. You’re so sweet, thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying everything. I have my little YouTube badge on the right and it taunts me daily! I just need to figure out my setup and then it’ll be up and running.

      My mom will appreciate the compliment! She tried on one of the new Smashbox lipsticks, though I'm not totally sure what color it was. If I had to guess, I'd go with Electric Pink? It was matte and super bright. I had on a Flower Velvet Matte lip pencil in Coral Floral which I love and totally plan on blogging about. And yes! A brow tutorial will be coming soon, too!
