Covergirl Lip Perfection Review


Buy Here
I like lipstick...okay I'm literally obsessed with it. Lately I have been loving these Covergirl Lip Perfection lipsticks. I have four colors right now, and will definitely be adding some more spring/summer colors soon. I really like these lipsticks, they have great color and I love the creamy formula. They also stay for quite a while, even when they start to come off they leave a nice color, almost like a lip stain. What's your favorite lipstick color? leave a comment below. xx- Megan

Spring 2015 color trends- Forever21 style

Hey all! It's almost officially spring time..even though the heaps of snow outside suggest otherwise. I am in love with the gorgeous color trends for Spring 2015. They are all so lovely. I have picked out some pieces from Forever21 that go perfectly with some of the colors from the Pantone spring colors report. All these pieces are affordable, comfy, and super cute. Joggers look like they are staying around for 2015 so I made sure to included them. I hope you enjoy these simple ways to add some spring color to your wardrobe.

Natural skin products

My skin is far from perfect...so far... but I am so grateful for the skin I have been given. I have acne, sometimes it's not too bad and sometimes it is. I don't want to go on any harsh medications so here are some natural things I use for my skin. My skin isn't perfect yet (nor will it ever be no one has perfect skin) but these things defiantly help my skin out!! If you do use medication or birth control etc. for your skin that's totally fine, it's just not my cup of tea. Speaking of tea...
1.  Yogi Healthy skin tea 
This tea is awesome. It's a completely natural herbal tea, no caffeine, green tea, etc. The cinnamon vanilla flavor taste so delicious! It works well, be consistent you can't drink one cup every couple weeks and expect it to clear your skin! I've also hear Yogi skin detox tea works well too but I was unable to find it.

2. *edit* I had my face cleanser cetaphil listed here but after doing some research, found out it has parabens and other unwanted ingredients despite its seemingly natural fragrance free formula. I have now switched to Neutrogena naturals and may do a review in the future. *edit*



3. Burt's Bees carrot cream
I use this carrot cream as my night moisturizer, it can make your makeup oily if you use it in the morning. It is super hydrating and works so well! Some people don't like the smell, but it's not bad just carrot-ey and you're sleeping anyways. It comes in a morning cream and a night cream but I would suggest using both at night.

4. St. Ives green tea blackhead clearing scrub
I use this every now and then when I need to exfoliate my skin. This one does have salyic acid in it, but it doesn't freak my skin out too bad maybe because it has other natural ingredients not just harsh chemicals. It contains sand so it really clears out your pores. Don't exfoliate too often as it can be harsh on your skin.

I hope you try out some of these products and that they help you! Diet is also a very important part of helping your skin so drink lots of water (I'm so bad at this) and try to change some things you eat. I'll keep you updated on my journey xo-Megan

King of Rock and Roll

Well it's one for the money two for the show.....Oh hey there. Just rocking out to some Elvis Presley. I love Elvis who doesn't?! He is the greatest. When I saw this shirt I knew I had to get it! I paired it with jeans, combat boots and a cardigan. Old navy has quite a few cute graphic tees lately. I loved this one with Time Magazine's classic after the war kiss, but they were out of stock at the time. Well I'm going to go listen to more Elvis now! xx Megan

2015

It's that time of year again. Time to look back on everything you did this year, and think about everything you want to do in the new year ahead. This is your opportunity to start a new book; the book of 2015. Instead of making a long list of resolutions write something new, write adventures you want to have, places you want to go. Whatever you want to write or how you want to write it, here is a template to help you start your new book. (save this image and then print)

First impression: Eco Tools skin perfecting BB/CC cream brush

As you may know I made the switch some time ago to BB cream instead of foundation, I wanted something lighter than foundation plus most BB creams are fortified with minerals and other benefits. Recently two new brushes came out specially made for BB cream and CC cream so I thought I'd give one a try. I picked up this Eco Tools brush from Ulta for $7.99. Right now Ulta has a coupon on their website for $3.50 off and $10 purchase so check that out while it lasts!

This brush does such an amazing job of making your skin look smooth and giving you even coverage especially compared to just using your fingers to apply the BB cream! The brush seems a bit to stiff at first but it still does an amazing job. Overall I would defiantly recommend this brush if you use BB cream!
 I use my Garnier Fructis BB cream (review here) with this brush, then I follow it up with my Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder since BB cream can get oily looking throughout the day this powder helps keep my skin matte.
