Sorry It’s Been So Long…but I’m BACK!


Is anyone still out there?

If you’re reading this, then I applaud you. It has been quite literally months since this blog has seen any activity on my end. And for that, I heartily apologize. The last few months have been rather intense. I graduated from grad school, looks for jobs, moved across the country, and (FINALLY) found a job. I’m all settled in now and feel like I can turn some of my focus back to fun things that I love! Posts may start up slowly at first and they may be irregular for a while but I’ve missed blogging and being part of this community!

Let me know what kinds of posts you would like to see! More reviews, skincare, weekly manicures, tutorials, general life bits?

Like I said, I have greatly missed doing this and I promise to be more active from here on out!

Love and kisses,



Manicure Mondays are BACK! Essie – Too Too Hot

Essie - Too Too Hot

Happy Monday! After a break for #JuneBBC (which I still cannot believe is over btw) Manicure Mondays are back! This week is brought to you by Essie’s Too Too Hot. This nail polish is a bright, orange-y red. I like the consistency of this polish, not too thick and not too thin. It applies really well and is pretty opaque in two coats. I think this is a great option for a summer time red nail. Essie polishes can be purchased at most drug stores, Target, Walmart, and Ulta for around $8.


#JuneBBC Day 7 || Favorite Lip Product(s)

My name is Heather and I am a lip product junkie. I have way more lipstick, lip gloss, stains, balms, etc. than I will ever need. And yet, there is always room for more! That is why picking just one favorite lip product was an impossible task for me. I did, however manage to narrow it down to four, which I consider to be pretty darn impressive.

#JuneBBC Day 6 || Disappointing Buys

Disappointing purchases, it has happened to us all, one way or another. If you are like me, you research everything to death before you buy it. Sometimes though, a bad egg manages to slip through. Whether it’s an impulse buy that just doesn’t pan out, or a product that doesn’t live up to expectations despite best efforts to research it thoroughly; from time to time, we are stuck with a product that we just don’t love. Here is a small handful of the products that I wanted to love, but just couldn’t. I had a hard time coming up with products because if I hate something, I either give it away or get rid of it. However, these are the few that I can remember.

#JuneBBC Day 4 || What’s In My Shower?

The happiest of Tuesdays to you, my dear reader! I hope the day is going well for you. It’s time for Day 4 of the June Beauty Blog Challenge! Wee!!

What’s in my shower/purse/travel bag/suitcase/nightstand/safe/bank account blog posts and videos always cause me to giggle a fair bit. I mean, I love them, but it’s kind of weird that we are so obsessed with what other people keep in their showers. It’s a shower! However, I’ll give in to the strangeness because, I’ll admit, I love it!
