Time for R&R

As I write this post, my bags are packed and sitting by the front door. It’s time for vacation! We are headed out first thing in the morning; and we plan to enjoy a week at the coast. After everything that’s gone on in the past few months, we definitely need this time of relaxation.

When I return, I will have new posts. I’m currently loving the Michael Todd skin care line and do a review on the pumpkin masque. I’ll also be posting a dupe I found for my favorite makeup brush.

I hope you all have a good week! Here’s a visual of where I’ll be hanging out this week.

Have a great week!

My Journey with Multiple Sclerosis Pt. 1

Hi guys,

I’m such a horrible blogger! Between work projects, roof leaks, master bathroom flooding (that’s a whole other post) and fighting a multiple sclerosis flare up…I’ve been quite busy. It’s left little to no time for blogging. However, I wanted to let you all in to the more personal side of my life.

I don’t talk about it often, but I have MS. I’ve filmed a 3 part series on my life with MS and I wanted to share. Being sick can be such a lonely feeling; so, talking about it and getting it out in the open has been very therapeutic for me. Maybe it will help someone else, maybe not. But, I just wanted to share.

See below for part 1 and stay tuned for parts 2 and 3.

Much Love,

Jess

No, I’m not perfect…

I wish I could say I was! I sit and watch Youtube videos for hours sometimes and I am amazed at the people who can put together a flawless video with no mistakes and no editing. That being said, I am DEFINITELY not one of those people. I flub my words all the time, get tongue-tied, space out and just plain ol’ act silly. I decided to put together a compilation of a few of my many blooper moments…hopefully you will get a kick out of them!

Much Love,

Jess

April Favorites!!

Can you believe it’s almost the end of April? Wow, time really flies by. I know the blog has been lacking for a while, I am really trying to focus my efforts on my YouTube channel. My passion in life is makeup; exploring new makeup, reviewing it, applying it and talking about. My dream/goal is to provide videos on a weekly basis chalk full of makeup application and reviews. I want my blog to follow up with supplemental information to the makeup, plus add in some fashion and tidbits of my life. I really want my blog to be that personable layer…the “get to know me” layer to my dream.

With that, I will leave you with my latest video! Thanks again for reading and watching!

Much Love,

Jess

Applying false eyelashes…

Hey guys,

So, am I the only person that had a difficult time learning how to apply false eyelashes? I can’t tell you the countless times I poked myself in the eye or yanked out a few lashes. Over time, it got a little easier and now it’s no longer as much of a challenge. If you also find yourself in that boat, check out my new video. I have some tips and tricks that helped me make applying easier.

Hope you enjoy. If you do enjoy, please subscribe!
