The possibilities are endless when it comes to stencils. You can use them on walls, shirts, bags, notebooks, laptop, crafts, and even skin to name a few. I have been seeing stencils more and more so I have been interested in them for some time now. istencils is an online company that sells all sorts of stencils.

This post brought to you by Famous Footwear. All opinions are 100% mine.
My night classes will be starting in less than 3 weeks. That means fall is not too far away and that I need to start thinking about fall shoes. This time of the year can be pretty pricey for me between tuition, books, supplies, clothing, and shoes. So I try to save money any way I can.

I love makeup and love to try different brands and new products. Between the expiration date and the amount of makeup I have, I normally do not completely finish the product. I saw a fun post on 15 Steps, Then a Beauty Blog where she is taking on a challenge to use these products up before she starts thinking about buying new ones.
Now I am not able to refrain from using new products until I have used all mine up. I like to try new products way too much for that. However, I wanted to come up with a list of products that I love so much that I will end up using all up. It might take me awhile, but I know I will!
Last week I got a haircut and had several inches cut off. As much as I loved my longer hair, the ends were dead and I had an unbelievable amount of split ends. Plus I had dramatic layers that I was not a fan of. So I got a hair cut to freshen everything up and have subtle layers now. My new hair rests a little below my collar bone. One of the things I was excited about was that I would not have as many tangles in my hair. Well I honestly cannot tell a difference in the amount of tangle I now have. It feels like the exact same to me. So I have to bring in reinforcements to make my hair tangle free. I have been using UNITE’s 7SECONDS Condition Leave In Detangler.

While I always use a makeup primer, I do not use a makeup finisher. I have only tried a few finishing products and just was not impressed with them in the past. I think all the ones I used was a powder, and powder typically just does not work for my skin. Mally Beauty has a finishing primer, but it is oh so much more than just that. It is called the Evercolor Poreless Face Defender. One of the best things about it is that it is not a powder.
I recently reviewed Erth Minerals products, which are 100% pure crushed minerals. I was able to review their foundation, blush, eyeshadow, and lip gloss. I think it works a whole lot better than its pricey competitors and looked wonderful on my skin. The mineral makeup is very high quality and extremely affordable. There is a large selection of different products and color options.
You can check out my full review of all the products here to get all the details!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile not, you would know that I think taking care of your skin is very important. It is something that I spend a good amount of time each day doing. I am also big into skin care systems. I do not know what it is, but I prefer to use products formulated to work together in hopes of achieving the best results possible. For about the past ten days I have been using skincare products from Exubrerance.
I have done several posts about EdenFantasys in the past. I always like to share products that are on my wish list or let you all know about good sales that are going on. I have ordered from their site a handful of times and thought I would share with you about my first hand experiences with the company. I made a list of the key things that really stood out to be when I ordered from EdenFantasys and why I love this company so much.

One of my biggest flaws and frustrations is my pores. The area around my cheeks and nose has large, visible pores. I have given up on trying to reduce their appearance with products, since I feel they have not been of any help. So I have recently started looking for the best product to help reduce the appearance of my pores. Besides having large pores, my skin becomes very oily throughout the day. So I have to use a primer that helps to control and minimize my oil, minimize my pores, and set my makeup. Phew, that is a lot to ask for from one product. For the past two weeks, I have been using Mally’s Perfect Prep Poreless Primer Glow. I can happily say this product provides me with all three benefits.

I know clip in hair pieces have been huge lately. Celebs, teens, ladies, moms, and woman from all over seem to be styling a bold hair accessory I absolutely love the trend and think hair accessories create such a fun look and have long thought that I can pull off this look. I actually did not own any until now and am so glad that I do. I am now a proud owner of the Clip-In Animal Print hair pieces from POP by HAIRUWEAR.

I love the idea of receiving a surprise in the mail each month. I know there are companies that send makeup and nail polish each month. I recently learned that there is a company that offers this, but instead they send a different pair of earrings each month! This company is called the Diva Dangler. Each month a new pair of fashionable earrings are delivered to your home, office, apartment or dorm.
No matter what time of the day it is or where I am going, I always have a least a spritz of perfume on. I like the smell of the perfume on my body, and it makes me feel good knowing that I am giving off a pleasurable scent. I know finding a perfume that I like can be difficult sometimes. I have to absolutely love the scent or I will not wear it. LAVANILLA is a company that has created products that are simply divine and are good for the body.
