A Tour of my Makeup!



A crappy screen shot of my cat for no apparent reason, other than she made the following videos almost impossible to film and it makes a good thumbnail.
It's another late night here on the blog and there have been lots of goings-on in the last two weeks since I've posted.  It's been quite a rough couple of weeks personally, and I plan on sharing it later this week, but for now I'm keeping things light and fluffy on the blog with some good old makeup collection videos.  I have recently posted two videos that center around makeup/ product organization and storage (everybody's guilty pleasure). 

If you're like me (aka nose-y), then you definitely love to see what other people hoard in their product collections.  I think there's something sort of comforting knowing that someone else has the same obsession as you, and also has a stupid amount of blush in varying "coral" colors.  We should really just call it what it is, an addiction.  Alas, this obsession (Addiction, sickness, whatever), is obviously not going away so we need to find cute and effective ways to store our obsession in a healthy way, and also so that it's neatly put away so our loved ones don't start to worry about us.  Enter: my makeup collection and storage and bathroom tour videos.

Enjoy! And, let me know down below what your obsession is.

My Current Empties!





I've been on quite a roll lately uploading videos to my YouTube channel, and on Wednesday I uploaded quite a long one! My current empty products! Since I hadn't done one of these videos in about 2-3 months, I have been one of those weirdos hoarding trash in my cupboard.  It's nice to say that all of those things are finally in the trash! But, it's great to report back in the form of several mini reviews and remember what I had loved.

Watch below if you're interested in seeing what sort of trash I have been storing :) And comment down below and let me know what you've been using up!

Renew Your Skin with Boots No7!



It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Boots No7 cosmetics and skincare.  Boots No7 is a British beauty brand, which is now spreading to multiple stores in the United States.  But, I find that I can definitely get the best deals on this line at Walgreen's. And, they carry Boots hair care, makeup, and skin care. 

The No7 line from Boots is absolutely phenomenal because it is affordable, but has natural and simple ingredients.  Every product is specifically designed to do exactly what the bottle says, so it makes it easy to pick out just what you need for your skin.  I've been loving these particular products:

1. No7 Hydrating Mineral Water Spray: This is a multipurpose product.  It locks in moisture and hydrates skin all day long.  I've been loving this as a makeup setting spray, but can be used whenever you feel like you need a refresher. 

2. No7 Oil Free Skin Protector: I am not a fan of most face sunscreens because they have a funny smell and have a tendency to break me out.  This one is oil-free and has not broken me out so far (woohoo!) It has SPF 25, is lightweight, and also contains Vitamin E, which prevents premature aging (always a plus!)

3. No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water: This product has quickly become a crucial step in my skincare routine.  It cleanses the skin, and uses zinc to balance complexion.  I've been using this after washing my face, but before my moisturizer.  I'm truly in love with it!

Have you ever used anything from Boot's No7? Let me know in the comments below!



Note: I was provided with the products mentioned above, but all opinions are my own, and I'm in love with this brand! :)

What's in my Purse?! Summer Edition!

Happy Monday!

I wanted to do a little updated "What's in my Purse?" video because it has been highly requested!  




The last time around, I was still using my Longchamp and it was getting a bit to heavy (and was full of crap!) I'm trying to downsize a bit, so I recently scored a Rebecca Minkoff MAC clutch on super sale.  The above image is not the same as mine- mine seems to have sold out.  However, they have a ton of super cute other colors on the Rebecca Minkoff website.  And, there are still a bunch on sale! Watch below to see what I've been toting around in my new purse:

Erin Condren Teacher Planner Review!



 I have been anticipating this post for so long now! 

Just over a month ago I placed my order for the Erin Condren Teacher's planner.  I had waited a while to place my order simply because I couldn't justify spending so much on a planner.  But, when the teacher appreciation sale rolled around, she offered 25% off for teachers, so I, of course, justified it.  I justified it so much that I also bought the 2014-15 life planner as well (review on that coming soon!)

I am a secondary teacher, and I felt like the Erin Condren Teacher Planner was a little bit more geared towards elementary school teachers.  But, after watching many reviews, I knew I could easily use this for teaching upper grades.
