Product Review for Black Friday!

Hello friends! Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I thought I would share a review of two beauty products I purchased from Sephora, just in case you want to do some shopping on Friday (that might be a good time, it happens to coincide with SEVERAL BIG sales!) LOL I purchased the Norvina by Anastasia palette and Best…

The Whole Naked 2 Palette

Hello Friends! I’ve been conflicted lately! I love Urban Decay’s Naked 2 palette, but struggle using the other colors besides my four go to colors: bootycall, tease, snakebite, and half baked. These are all great, amazing, and flattering colors BUT I want to make use of the rest of the palette. It’s a pretty penny to use only four out of 12 colors. I mean REALLY! So…in getting ready for my Halloween Morticia makeup, I discovered a smoky eye I can use three more colors on my Naked 2 palette! Yay! I use foxy on my lid, pistol on the…

Hair Saga

Hello friends and happy Sunday! I thought I’d share some of my continuing hair ideas. Most of you know I have hashimotos and struggle with fluctuating hair loss. A few months ago I purchased a couple of Halo extensions. One problem I have is that if I’m not wearing the extensions, I need to pull…

Couch Potato Plan

Hello friends! How are you all this wonderful Wednesday?? I’m so glad the week is half over. I’m telling you my training was tough tough tough. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve done for years! We spent the whole training in silence which was not as difficult as spending (25) 25 minute meditation-which means I…

Lipstick Luv

Hey friends! I discovered some lipstick fun the last couple of days! Sunday was National Lipstick day and although I don’t shop on Sunday, I did tuck it in my brain that Sephora (located in JCPENNEY) had a special going on until the end of August 1: buy one Anastasia lipstick and get one free!…

Real Talk about Hair Loss

Hello friends! I thought today would be somewhat different. I want to share my experience with hair loss. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and my thyroid surgically removed. Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and I think things went downhill (health wise) after that, although the last couple of years…

Fashion Addicted Self Care

Hey friends! How was your Monday? Glad it’s over??? Me too LOL Last week I took a values assessment (work related) and I discovered in four values areas: work, relationships, leisure, and personal growth-health that I am lacking in the leisure area. Who knew?? I graded myself two dots away from “bullseye” in work and relationships but then realized I work pretty hard and am dedicated- along with being connected in the vital relationships in my life- so I thought that might be a judgement of myself. I graded two dots away from bullseye in personal growth/health because of my…

Urban Decay Beached How-to

Hello friends! On this lazy Sunday I thought I would share my morning of experimenting with makeup! A month or so ago, I got a new palette from Ulta-Urban Decay- Beached compact. It’s some really bright sandy, coral, and turquoise shades. It’s super pretty. Then about a week ago, I saw an ad on IG…

Hair today…?

Hello friends and happy weekend! I hope you’re enjoying wherever you are! Isn’t summer weather wonderful?? (Personally I’m very fond of weekends AND summer) I had a scary experience on Thursday! I got my hair trimmed 😳! Years ago when I had short hair, I got it trimmed about every 4 weeks. Since I’ve been…

Lash On

Hello friends! A couple months ago I accidentally bought (at Ulta) the longest lashes I have ever seen. I thought there was no way I would ever wear them. (There was a special going on- buy one get one 50% off so I thought I got two of the same size as one was behind…
