The Weekend Post | 02.14.16

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I hope you are having a lovely Sunday with someone you love. It’ll be a quiet day for us here. After church I’m hoping to convince Christopher to watch an Audrey Hepburn movie. Though maybe I…

Bobbi Brown Greystone Eyeshadow Palette | Review & Swatches

I have loved Bobbi Brown’s products from afar for many years. I distinctly remember reading an article about her in Girls Life¬†magazine (did anyone else read that?) when I was 10 or 11 and dreaming of the day when I…

What I’ve Learned From Having a Mom Who Doesn’t Wear …

Essie Virgin Snow | Mani Monday

When Essie released their Winter 2015 collection a few months ago, I thought I only wanted to add Altitude Attitude to my collection. I needed a pinky-red (well I didn’t have one yet, so maybe want is a better word),…
