Cold Weather Beauty Essentials

I absolutely love the cold weather. I think I crave it as a native Floridian because it’s so elusive here. So lately it’s been a treat to have consistent cold weather and get some good use out of my winter wardrobe. And it means it’s time to break out my Winter beauty essentials! Dry Shampoo Confession – the longer I can go without washing my the better. Especially when it’s blow dried or straightened. When it’s cold I want my style to last even longer because who wants wet hair when it’s cold? Plus, I get to make use of some hats. So I use dry shampoo all the time. I’ve tried a lot of different brands but these are my favorites: Splurge – Amika Perk Up […]

An Awesome Birchbox Review

I didn’t get a chance to review my December Birchbox in December because things got too crazy but it was a great box with some products I fell in love with so I definitely wanted to share even if it is a little late!

November Birchbox Review

The November Birchbox was a Guest Editor box from Youtube beauty star Tati Westbrook. I was excited to try it because I’ve seen her on YouTube and she’s gorgeous. Here’s what I thought of the GlamLifeGuru box. Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum – $36 Pros: Non-greasy, dries very quickly, super lightweight.

Jouer Lip Enhancer – $16 Pros: Super-moisturizing. Makes lips soft and fuller. Cons: I wish I had more of it! Verdict: Will be purchasing! I absolutely loved this product, I have super dry lips (especially in the morning), I put this […]

My First Birchbox Review

I finally decided to jump on the subscription box train and order my first Birchbox. I have been getting more and more into makeup and skincare in the last year or so but I still rarely branch out of my comfort zone. So, I love the idea of getting to test out a bunch of new products for only $10 a month. I ordered my first box in mid-September but I didn’t get it until October 3rd. I guess it takes them a while to process and ship your first box but usually they come at the beginning of the month because I got my October Birchbox around the 10th. I basically got two in the same week which was fun, I like the fact […]
